Did Marduk help The Order in stopping the High Aeons?

And did he switch teams shortly thereafter?

Marduk tried to contain the situation until he realized his friends were irredeemable.

Right about the time they started acting like General Zod's men in Man of Steel.

He's currently independent and the Order has no particular love or desire for him.

Victor and Marduk's egoes could never coexist on one team.

Just to be clear again, if Victor Vanquish was in Clark's place, Zod and his men would've been completely screwed?

Clark didn't do poorly except for the small fact of really needing to MOVE THE FIGHT ELSEWHERE.

Almost all Supermen and counterparts can't help but Marvel at Clark's decision to continue the smash up his hometown as well as Metropolis.

Let me put it this way, Zod and Faora are on a operating table and Victor's the surgeon.

Faora might survive.

Victor has sympathy for people from a dying world needing a place to go.

He'd send her and probably HALF of Zod's crew to another world.

That would be after turning Zod into a Kryptonian pretzel along with his creepy Doctor friend and however many other survivors weren't taking the hint.

:D

Eh, I'd split the chances between Victor either killing her or making sweet, sweet Neo-Concordian lovemaking techniques in the stratosphere.

He doesn't have an enemies list, he has entire charts of enemies and potential threats to deal with, listed by scale of threat, available assets and allies, known enemies, known powers and abilities along with a scale for each, and plans needed for dealing with each. He keeps this secret from his team for the time being, as he is stilling gathering details on some of the bigger guns. [Someone who seems like he has details of Nick Fury and Batman combined would work out plans down to the last detail for dealing with any known or potential threat, imo.]

He believes, perhaps wrongly, a certain AI may have done it. She denies it.


The Intelligence is to thank for this for this one, having long been wanting to take that out little canary since its inception. On another note and just to make things worse, Lady Scorpion and Warmonger of the Organization have become members of The Intelligence as well, not to mention had a mind control device secretly implanted inside the Divine Leader, now putting him firmly under their grasp.

does Mr. King have an enemies list?


Doubtless he has an entire collection of them, from a crayon-scribbled notice he keeps around for purposes of nostalgia (also because he's pretty sure that Rolando 'Chico' Suarez is finally going to man up and DO SOMETHING about that thing with the firecracker and the gecko any time now … any time now) to the most recent addition, still shiny new.

Momentum: Senor, I think that's my enemies list.

Mr Reyes: Your enemies are going to become my enemies - you're welcome.

Momentum: THANKS! Now I can - (spend SPECIAL time with my lady love).

Mr Reyes: - now get back to work thinning out my enemies list or I'll string you up as a piñata.

Momentum: <Makes like Speedy Gonzales>

Sorry for my delays, Grand Theft Auto 5 is like a sink.

A sink of time.

Just had Michael fight Triads in the cemetery.

Anyone who has read your blog can tell that by the fact you've typed up not only a review, but an actual article on the same game! :wink:

So what have the Order been up to since 2013?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdzIqdb3RQg

Mister King: We do NOT deal cocaine.

Mister Arcane: It's not cocaine. It's stardust.

Mister King: Which is Celestial Commerce Guild approved cocaine!

Fade: Well we need to take down the Organization's network SOMEHOW!

Mister King: Ugh, damn CIA plans.

Dark Sun: I love being a country music star!
