Of course, this being Death Mask and his plans NEVER working out the way they want, the Globalist as raised by him STILL holds him in contempt and is more idealistic than determined to conquer the world.
This particularly Death Mask is more dangerous than his HED! version. He's still the same level of completely selfish bastard he was in the original world but he's much more capable of FAKING human emotion this time around.
I cannot help but suspect that it was the experience of raising James the Younger which taught Moriarty senior enough to make him even MORE dangerous! (I also suspect that while The Globalist is more idealistic than he is ambitious, his ideals are somewhat twisted and his ambition still immense).
He really should have at least TRIED to touch bases with The John Smith Society!The Wibbly Wobbly Time Travel adventures of Doctor Justice's alternate self have played havoc with HED!'s timeline.
Knowing Herr Mueller it's probably holding steady at "Much better than his enemies and slightly worse than his friends" as ever it has been.We'll find out his current state later.
To be fair, many of the HED! squadrons DID have the advantage of mentoring from individuals with far more extensive experience than any the E-0 crowd could call upon - I also suspect that the HED! villains have wrought havoc ALMOST equal to the Good that the local heroes have done.Heroic Earth's entry into the larger Nexus (due to the efforts of Legendary Iron Phoenix meeting Death Mask III disguised as a kindly inventor) has rather put Earth-0 to shame.
Doubtless attracting the attention of many a predator lurking in the depths of The Nexus; one suspects that twitch of ONE's has grown more pronounced lately, for instance.Still, they're making more of a splash with their full commitment to saving the Multiverse.
I wonder if any of The Liberators (for example Jenny Sprockets and her Mister) decided to remain in the 1950s? - I also wonder if any of those that travelled into the 1980s decided to arrive in the two thousand-teens by the more conventional expedient of waiting through the nineties and noughties first.Now in their 40s and 50s, they arrived in the eighties for about four years then moved up to the Modern Era.
I must admit that I suspect Twilight's brand of vigilantism owes a debt to The Dark Knight Returns; he takes considerable pride in refusing to employ firearms and blatantly lethal expedients, but tends to wind up inflicting a heck of a lot of damage anyway (in an odd way I see him as the Frank Miller version of Tim Drake, since his background and prediliction for detective work match his inspiration even more neatly than the Alex Timmons of Heroic Earth).Twilight has long since come to the conclusion that his gritty brand of antiheroism just doesn't work in a world of superpowered gorillas and jetpacks. However, that doesn't mean it doesn't work in OTHER worlds. He's found himself far more successful in eliminating psychopaths, serial killers, and child molesters that seem to proliferate in other worlds. He's already considering joining the Order or similar group.
Doubtless George Timmons gets a bit worried when his nephew forgets that he's only an ADOPTIVE father and continues with his best efforts to forget his own natural father (George's brother); I wonder if Twilight wants to forget his father because he didn't care for the old man or because he cared too much?Oddly, he's NEVER been tempted to joined the Justicars as as much as he prefers to go to the extremes against bad guys--he'll NEVER join a group which disrespects his father.
Thank you kindly!; I'm still trying to work out the membership of various teams (more to the point I'm trying to work out which teams to include and in what fashion!).I love the new personal group, though, and think Robin Hood is a GREAT addition to the group.
Once again, thank you very kindly; if you have any further comments then I look forward to reading them.Not much to add but really nice write-up.
