* Why in the game Jackie spent his childhood in an orphanage when he has an aunt?

** They're a bunch of lunatics who want to contain an EldritchAbomination to use its power to their own benefit, such a mundane solution is something that is off the table to them.

* Why doesn't the Brotherhood just put flashlights on their guns? It seems like a more efficient and effective way to counter Jackie than having certain members lug them around on their shoulders.

** It's most likely them just underestimating it due to seeing Jackie as nothing more then a young idiot who doesn't know what he's getting into. Considering The Darkness was around since the very beginning of existence, it's not very likely that it's bluffing when it says it's unimaginably powerful.

* During the Total Darkness arc, The Darkness went on and on about how incomprensibly powerful and ancient it is, yet many supernatural beings that Jackie encounters give him snide remarks about how inferior he and his power is.Dracula called it nothing more than shadows and imps, and the personification of darkness, the Magus, called it a party trick. Was The Darkness being self important when it made itself sound like the ultimate force or does Jackie's [[UnskilledButStrong lack of skills]] make others assume he doesn't have that much power? You would think that other Eldritch Abominations could at least sense what's in Jackie before they deem him a minor threat.

*** Not to mention that The Darkness wants to be the one in control of Jackie and not vice-versa. Apart of that is having the option to just go to the next host. They flipped-flopped on wether or not the current Darkness user dies at the moment of conception (as it was initially), at the moment of birth or merely that they lose their powers at the moment of birth (as seen in the lastest issue I've read, which is several years old by this point). In that last example, Jackie's father keeps his Darkness powers up until Jackie is born, at which point he's killed by the people he was attacking just a moment before.
