Big Tex is fried...
Well, they do things a little differently in Texas right? Big Tex had been up for about 60 years for each State Fair in Texas. I guess you could call this his swan song. There is certainly history being burned up. But, I have a feeling Big Tex will be back.
Heck, Big Tex even met the X-Men! He even helped the team out defeating Magneto.
From The Six Million Dollar Man, ((Oscar Goldman: Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world's first bionic man. Steve Austin will be that man. Better than he was before. Better, stronger, faster. ))
Some say he was a little hot under the collar...
Now this is downright creepy.
