This is really sad. I loved this guy, he was brilliant in everything he starred in. A true comedy legend with a definitive onscreen charisma.

Whenever LOCKDOWN is not on screen or in comic panel all the other characters should be saying "Where is LOCKDOWN?" or "I wonder what LOCKDOWN is up to?" or "LOCKDOWN would know what to do" or something that references LOCKDOWN.
