* so, near the end of the second game [[spoiler:Jackie gets tricked and gets thrown into an iron maiden to keep him in place until The Siphon can completely drain the Darkness from him. While it makes sense that he isn't instantly dead by the time the darkness is drained, how does he still stay alive later on when the Darkness is completely drained from him? The Darkling compares him to a cactus when he's released, and he doesn't have the darkness keeping him alive anymore, so how is he not only able to stand up and move, but also take MORE bullets to his person?

** The Darkness sperm will find a way. I mean we aren't talking H.I.V we are talking a curse that can impregnate everyone on the first sexual encounter, what are the odds anal still ends up in demonic pregnancy?

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

to:

** 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.
