1984 Zartan: Master of Disguise
Never shake hands with this guy. You can't trust 'em.
Early versions of Zartan's file card featured a psychological profile labeling him an "extreme paranoid schizophrenic". There was some blow back. The Mental Health Association of Indiana requested that Hasbro halt distribution of the "doll."
Hasbro made a running change at the factory to remove the psychological profile. I still like to consider him highly unstable.
