* It may also be worth noting that, before he goes on a rampage, Cthulhu is described as communicating with early humans. He comes across as almost benevolent, being interested in sharing ideas and a planet with us. It could just be that when he (briefly) emerged from his city in the early 20th century, his multi-dimensional body hadn't properly 'stabilised', so instead of being rational and sensible, he was ruled by animal instincts. Given more time for his body to properly prepare itself after thousands of years of slumber, Cthulhu could have emerged as a sane and lucid octopus-faced dragon thing instead of a slobbering monster.

Azathoth is said to be the avatar or focal point of the cosmic forces of the physical world. As such, he is a force of nature & therefore mindless. Some sources say that Nyarlathotep is Azathoth's disembodied consciousness, however. This could be because he is the avatar of Lovecraft's Dreamlands, a world made from the [[CarlJung collective unconscious]] of all intelligent life, in a way, the "consciousness" of the universe. Since intelligent life is so rare in the vast cosmos he is so much smaller & less powerful than Azathoth, but infinitely more versatile & dangerous. This also handily explains why he is the most humanlike of Lovecraft's cosmic monsters, because in a way he is part human.

Also, the voodoo sect the guy's cousin joined is the one from ''Call Of Cthulhu''. No reason other than it'd tie it into the CthulhuMythos.

Cthulhu Mythos.



Shadowgirls, webcomics that makes big use of CthulhuMythos, has recently finished short story revealing that Lovecraft was a member of secret society of writers, who were gathering the knowledge about all kind of supernatural like aliens, vampires, werewolves or eldritch abominations and publishing them as fiction. If they would reveal their knowledge as truth, nobody would believe them, but if they claimed to made it up, their knowledge would survive in collective human memory as tropes - we know that stake and sunlight kills a vampire and silver bullet is fatal to the werewolf, because we read about it in books. Lovecraft himself has passed informations about how to deal with at last some of creatures his characters encounters - The Dream-Quest Of Unknown Kadath describes how to survive encounters with many creatures inhabiting Dream World and even how to get saved from Nyerlaotheph. His stories where monstrosities cannot be stopped serves as a warning for people so then can recognize early signs of those creatures when they see them and run.

* (Pasted from DW Nightmare Fuel) Both the Doctor and the Master are charming, suave fellows with timetravelling capabilities, entirely alien biologies, the skill to charm the pants off ''anybody'', the power to change their face, masters of technology and engineering, and are both merciless killers who follow their own established order. Y'know who else fits that description? [[CthulhuMythos Nyarlathotep]].

Nyarlathotep.



[[FromNobodyToNightmare The Dark Pharaoh was Nyarlathotep's old human identity]] [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence before ascending to godhood]]. Related to the above "The Dark Pharaoh is Nyarlathotep's true form", The Dark Pharaoh only ruled an Egyptian kingdom (albeit as brutally and cruelly as you'd expect a future EldritchAbomination would), but eventually stumbled upon the legends of the Ancient Ones, and [[AGodAmI decided getting the powers of an Eldritch God was WAY too good to pass up]]. Cue one even-more-demonic-than-usual cultist ceremony, and The Dark Pharaoh became Nyarlathotep. Assuming this theory is true, it'd probably explain why Nyarlathotep is described as having the "soul" of the Ancient Ones, and is THE definitive GodOfEvil in the CthulhuMythos while the other Ancient Ones run on BlueAndOrangeMorality - [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters as a former human, Nyarlathotep still has a soul with him]], [[AmbitionIsEvil only one rendered black with an insatiable lust for power]], [[DrunkOnTheDarkSide and made even worse now that he has Eldritch god-powers at his fingertips]].

--> This novel dramatic paraphernalia consisted first of all of the [[HauntedCastle Gothic castle]], with its [[AncientEvil awesome antiquity]], vast distances and ramblings, deserted or ruined wings, [[GhostlyChill damp corridors]], [[AncientTomb unwholesome hidden catacombs]], and [[GhostStory galaxy of ghosts]] and [[CosmicHorrorStory appalling legends]], as a nucleus of suspense and daemoniac fright. In addition, it included the [[MagnificentBastard tyrannical and malevolent nobleman as villain]]; the [[MarySue saintly, long-persecuted, and generally insipid]] [[HauntedHeroine heroine]] who [[DamselInDistress undergoes the major terrors]] and serves as a point of view and focus for the readerís sympathies; the valorous and immaculate [[TheHero hero]], always [[KingIncognito of high birth but often in humble disguise]]; the convention of [[StockForeignName high-sounding foreign names]], mostly [[GratuitousItalian Italian]], for the characters; and the infinite array of stage properties which includes [[WillOTheWisp strange lights]], damp [[TrapDoor trap-doors]], [[LightsOffSomebodyDies extinguished lamps]], [[TomeOfEldritchLore mouldy hidden manuscripts]], [[StockSoundEffects creaking]] [[SoMuchForStealth hinges]], [[{{Poltergeist}} shaking arras]], and the like. All this paraphernalia reappears with amusing sameness, yet sometimes with tremendous effect, throughout the history of the Gothic novel...

* Actually, what the Hulk got stuck in a black hole instead of events of PlanetHulk and WorldWarHulk unfolding? According to Einstein and Hawking, black holes emit gamma radiation that escapes its huge gravity that warps time. Therefore, Hulk continued to mutate to be stronger and dumber from the gamma radiation until he grew sixth fingers and toes, wings and a face like Zoidberg and exist both in space, in R'lyeh, and in all of the issues where he appeared. In fact, he could even fight himself!
