* HatePlague: Cobweb is the living personification of this trope. He nurtures the feelings of anger and resentment in the hearts and minds of people who've suffered, driving them to feel hatred at those who harmed them, and then inspiring further hatred in the victims of whoever his original victims harm. Although Cobweb did not create conflicts like the ArabIsraeliConflict or TheTroubles, he played a major part in establishing the CycleOfRevenge that resulted, increasing the violence and bloodshed in all these conflicts.

This series was started in September 2006, although it's only recently been imported to Fanfiction.net. You can find it [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4628492/1/Ultimate_Sleepwalker_The_New_Dreams here]]. At 114 chapters, including 99 issues, eight Annuals, six Halloween Specials and one crossover, it'll take a significant a chunk of time to catch up-- but it's worth it for a well realised take on a cult character.
