* TangledFamilyTree: Oh, you have no ''[[http://www.multiverse.org//index.php?title=Category:Cornelius_Family idea]]''. Jerry is told about it by his mother in ''The Condition Of Muzak'' ("Incest on top a bloody incest, eh?"). It's quite likely that Jerry is in some way related to most of the series' other important characters.

Quite possibly the strangest incarnation of Creator/MichaelMoorcock's "Eternal Champion", Jerry Cornelius is a hipper-than-hip secret agent/assassin who acts as [[OrderVersusChaos a needed force of chaos]] in the world. He travels through time, dies (and gets better), and [[TheLostLenore pines for his beloved sister.]] He's a KarmicTrickster. Or maybe a SadClown. Or a TimeLord. Or maybe he's just a seedy kid from [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ladbroke_Grove Ladbroke Grove]] who has aspirations of being a jukebox hero.

Moorcock also made the character available to other writers, making Jerry a sort of open-source character nearly 40 years before WebOriginal/JennyEverywhere. Most of the non-Moorcock Cornelius works are harder to find; notable examples include Norman Spinrad's "The Last Hurrah of the Golden Horde" and Creator/{{Moebius}}' ''Le garage hermétique de Jerry Cornelius'' (''The Airtight Garage of Jerry Cornelius''). Other pieces (including some of the comic strips) have been compiled into the volume ''The Nature of the Catastrophe'' (1971, and not to be confused with the short story above).
