Here are some of those active in the rest of the world. The United Kingdom: The most famous, or possibly notorious, hero of B...

I'm still waiting to see how I'm going to have to end Hieronymous King's presidency before I say anything else about them. But all plaudits are welcome.

I imagine Hyperion’s collapse to be less Iredeemabable’s rampaging across the world and more Kingdom Come’s seal himself off from the rest of civilization.
Yes, the latter, probably accompanied by a suicide attempt or two.

Hyperion

Hyperion The reason that Hyperion doesn't discuss his origins is that he isn't entirely certain what they are. The people who raised him, the only parents he's ever known, told him that they found him in the wreckage of what they took for a UFO. That wreckage had long since been cleaned up by agent...

I have heard that Joaquin Phoenix's performance is amazing,
It's true, it is. I would not be surprised if he got an Oscar nomination. But he's one of only two really good performances, and when the second one is not Robert de Niro, you can tell that something has gone very wrong somewhere.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Warlock! Bigfoot! Yeti! Frankenstein's Monster!)

Most demonology factoids comes from the Lesser Key of Solomon, I believe. Yep, and before that from Johann Weyer's Pseudomonarchia Daemonum , and then from his sources, which are lost. Near as I can tell, Demonology is just Biblical , like people extrapolating on Tolkien or Rowling characters (“so ...

Joker

I caught an early showing yesterday. Long story, I would have done better to wait for next Tuesday. Mr. Phoenix is excellent in the title role, but the predictable story leaves much to be desired in narrative coherence. Its biggest sin is in making the Wayne murders even less plausible than usual --...
