Oh, and he's got 13 dread henchmen, one of whom was probably [[AlternateSelf you at some point in time.]] Also, {{Hell}} has a personal grudge against you this time. Did I mention Magical America regularly trains and sends {{ninja}}s out for you personally? Ninjas specially trained in ass-kicking? Which, if they won't work, they keep giant [[PoweredArmor robotic suits of armor]] on reserve for. Oh, and the Franchise/{{Transformers}} have united under Omicron, and are invading. The [[Franchise/StarWars Jedi]] have corrupted {{Heaven}} and usurped your rightful place as the Masters of Everything. Your ex-wife just dropped by, and she's a two thousand year old shape-changing man-eating monster now, interested in maybe going on a date next Thursday. Your best friend from your last life and while growing up now seeks to cover all the lands of [[Literature/LordOfTheRings Middle Earth]] in darkness, if he can just find this damn [[RingOfPower ring.]] And your {{God}} has the world's biggest [[FantasticDrug crack habit]], and needs some serious rehab.
