The second and arguably realistic force to overcome is trying to rebuild civilization due to dwindling supplies and food.

* Hum. [[Film/EarthGirlsAreEasy Mac]]? Stealing the identity of Dr [[Film/TheAdventuresOfBuckarooBanzaiAcrossThe8thDimension Sidney Zweibel]] (who went into Witness Protection under the alias [[Film/TheFly1986 Seth Brundle]] and tragically vanished), he'd probably be useful as a techie for such a group. While gaining degrees under human pseudonyms - [[Film/JurassicPark Ian Malcolm]], [[Film/IndependenceDay David Levinson]] - and doing some "vacationing", of course.

[[folder:The Comic Part 1]]
[[WMG: The {{Juggalo}}s are a sizable religious cult in this universe]]
Why? Because [[AllMythsAreTrue the spirits of the Dark Carnival are real]]. Though they're far too fringe to be considered a mainstream religion, their followers make up a group almost as large as [[Franchise/CthulhuMythos the Cthulhu cult]], and they're classified as religious terrorists in some parts of the world. Oliver Haddo tried to recruit them into his group at one point [[note]] Presumably, he learned about the Carnival when he was doing research for his essay on the Great Old Ones[[/note]], but they just trashed his headquarters and showered him with Faygo.
* Or perhaps they're a Spin off of the Hi Hats street gang

[[WMG: The [[Franchise/{{Alien}} Weyland-Yutani Corporation]] is this universe's version of the Apple Corporation]]
Because if you're going to become an all-powerful MegaCorp with a monopoly on space exploration, what better place to start? In ''Century: 2010'', they'll appear in the background as the manufacturers of an iPod/iPhone analogue that shows up everywhere. It wouldn't be 2010 without one, after all...
* Alternatively Apple could become Aperture Science. The timelines don't quite work out, but both companies, founded by gaunt, eccentrically brilliant men who died before their time because of a painfully slow disease, have a fondness for manufacturing powerful computers with user-friendly, smooth, white designs. After all, what's Siri for the iPhone but a less powerful, less homicidal version of GLADOS?

* During the course of the war, the Nazi's continuously tried using ancient artifacts and advanced technology to help them win the war. Notable accounts include the many battles between [[ComicBook/CaptainAmerica Captain America and the Red Skull]], the uncovering of the [[Main/IndianaJones Ark of the Covenant and the Holy Grail]], as well as the back and fourth conflicts between [[VideoGame/Wolfenstein3D O.S.S. operative B.J. Blazkowicz]] and [[VideoGame/ReturnToCastleWolfenstein the S.S.' paranormal division,]] [[VideoGame/Wolfenstein2009 lead by the Nazi]] scientist Deathshead.
** No, this is Alan Moore who satirizes subtext and makes a mickey of everyone, here is what happened. Adenoid Hynkel told a division to find ancient artifacts and advanced technology. Captain America was actually Tyrone Slothrop of ''Literature/GravitysRainbow'' fame, who spent most of his time having sex rather than adventures. Indiana Jones is a Fifth Columnist traitor who is tasked by American corporations to destroy evidence of their pre-war collaboration with the Nazis under the guise of "finding" ancient artefacts. Indy also makes a killing on the black market selling art stolen by the Nazis, where he collaborates with Napoleon Solo and Harry Lime. As for Castle Wolfenstein, well it was an advanced Nazi test-chamber where subjects were made to move like rats in an endless maze, satirizing game railroading and of no wider consequence and importance.

* [[Franchise/IndianaJones Marshall College]] in upstate New York, which was once home to a certain archaeology professor named "Jones", is the site of a vast secret cache of mystical artifacts that Jones amassed from his past travels. As such, it's a frequent magnet for the supernatural (not unlike [[Franchise/CthulhuMythos Miskatonic University]] farther north). The college's dean, Professor '''M'''arcus Brody, briefly served as the "M" of an American League during WorldWarII, and used Marshall as a secret base.

* Though not as obvious as some others since they don't share a family name, the descendants of [[Literature/SleepingBeauty Briar Rose]], also known as the Sleeping Beauty, persist to this day. The key characteristic shared by all of them is a distant relic of Briar Rose's curse, which manifested as the conditions now known as nacrolepsy and catalepsy. Known descendants include [[Film/RatRace Enrico Pollini]] and [[ComicStrip/Peanuts Patricia Reichardt]].

** During the course of their expedition across the Dark Continent, they came upon the lost city of Zinj, (protected by vicious selectively-bred gorillas) encountered the wild man known as Tarzan, and hunted relict dinosaurs in the deepest jungles. Their greatest and most dangerous discovery, though, was a cursed artifact which, for a brief time, transformed the natural jungle around them into a nightmarish landscape where even the experienced hunters among them were challenged, identified by a single word carved on it: ''Jumanji''

* '''The Kanes''' have like the Finns been both angels and devils, the line started with Puritan adventurer {{Solomon Kane}}, his direct descendent was [[HighNoon Will Kane]], a town marshal who had a pair of children, one of whom was James Kane. James would move to Colorado where he found gold and inadvertently introduced villainy into their line when his son [[CitizenKane Charles]] got his start from that very wealth, the sole child he ever had (unbeknownst to him) grew up into [[Film/{{Poltergeist}} Reverend Henry Kane]]. Not all the modern Kanes turned out evil though, such as superheroines [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Katherine and Bette Kane]]. The other Kanes of note were the offshoot of it that lived in [[AllMyChildren Pine Valley, Pennsylvania]]. In the 21st century there was [[KaneAndLynch a criminal who claimed linage to the Kanes]], though this was false and merely a handle.

* '''The Ryans''' are a cryptic enigma to most. Their family line first came to prominence with Objectivist business tycoon [[VideoGame/BioShock Andrew Ryan and his underwater city]], but because of the unorthodox way that his son Jack was born, the world knows very little about his descendants. Despite how bizarre his DNA was, Jack did go on to father a pair of thieves named [[Series/{{Highlander}} Ritchie]] and [[Film/OceansEleven Rusty]]. Aside from them, though, the family line included [[Literature/JackRyan another Jack Ryan]], along with [[Series/{{Degrassi}} Caitlin Ryan]] and [[SavingPrivateRyan Pvt. James Ryan]].
