Oh, and let's not forget about the artifact that makes you [[Franchise/YuGiOh want to play card games for the rest of your life]]. And to get through all this crap, you have to pass insurmountable odds in IndianaJones-esque fashion, and more than one person would ''die'' along the way. It seems to me that Ancient Egypt was a freaking death trap! Screw archaeology! Ever think there was a '''reason''' this crap was buried?!

->I'm not some pretty boy with marital problems. I don't have some confused psyche or unresolved parental issues. You're not dealing with a Franchise/SilentHill protagonist here! Time and again, someone got it into their head that they could defeat me. Time and again they beat me down, they knocked me out, and they tried to make me give up. You come at me with insecurity, self-doubt, and angst? You try to make me doubt who I am? I am the man who [[Franchise/SilentHill defeated]] [[ImplacableMan Pyramid Head]].

->This is Linkara, Calling Lord Vyce. If you are receiving this signal, then you may wanna take that huge-ass helmet off you head and listen for a minute. Listen, I just wanted to tell you how deeply honored I am. You see, I was once told you were the stuff of nightmares for gods and monsters alike. And that's why I'm so ''honored'', you see, you've seen fit to show me your true colors-and the main one is a ''big bright shade of yellow'', All that you see, you conquer, huh? Well, I guess you never did really set your eyes on ''me'' then, you were too busy ''looking the other way'' and ''running for your life''. And it's a ''good thing'', too- you've shown just how inadequate you are. You're not up to the task of facing this "Entity" you're so afraid of. Tell you what- why don't you go tuck your cape between your legs and run home, While ''I'' deal with it- after all, it's what you're good at. However, if you want to prove me wrong, ''you know where to find me''.

->'''Linkara:''' No, no. There's really nothing for me to do. I could shoot you with increasingly larger guns, but it wouldn't work. I could pull some exciting new morpher out of my pants and hope it would give me the power to defeat you, but we both know that wouldn't work either.
->[[spoiler:'''Missing№:''']] No, it would not.

->'''Linkara:''' And there you have it! I could never hope to beat you; it's impossible. The only choice I have is to surrender, because there is [[PunctuatedForEmphasis simply. Nothing. Else. I can do.]]

->'''Linkara:''' After I'm... consumed by you, [[AndThenWhat what're you going to do next]]?
->[[spoiler:'''Missing№:''']] I will spread throughout this universe until it and I are the same--till it and I are the same. From there, I shall do as I have done before: I shall travel from universe to universe and they shall become extensions of my being, simultaneously piece and whole. Every star, every cosmos, every dimension, all things living and dead shall become meee... No empty space, no limit, nothing existing except for me. Existence shall become solely defined by me because I ''am'' existence!
->'''Linkara:''' Oh, [[AndThenWhat and]] ''[[AndThenWhat then]]'' [[AndThenWhat what're you going to do?]]

->[[spoiler:'''Missing№:''']](confused) I... will exist. Everything will be me and--.
->'''Linkara:''' Yes, yes, yes, we know that part, but what are you going to ''do''? You will exist, ''[[SarcasmMode neato!]]'' What're you going to do to ''pass the time''? You will have absorbed -everything-, and I do mean ''everything''. You will not just be the only being in the universe, you will ''be'' the universe! So... whaddaya gonna do -as- the universe? Will you ''create'' things? Well I suppose you wouldn't 'cause creating something would mean it would be ''different'' from you, and you'd just -reabsorb- it back in anyways, so... again, I ask: ''what are you going to '''do''' once you've completed your goal?''
->[[spoiler:'''Missing№:''']] Existence is... existence is... important part...
->'''Linkara:''' Yes, but why do you ''want'' that goal?
->[[spoiler:'''Missing№:''']] Ev...erything should... and must... be me... everything should and must be me.
->'''Linkara:''' And when everything is you, what are you going to do ''next''!? What is your purpose when your purpose has been fulfilled?! What will be your meaning when you have made the ultimate achievement?! Is 'existing' just an end in itself? Well that can't be it, because you're already existing, and are therefore ''fulfilling'' that part of it!

-> (VisualEffectsOfAwesome ensue as he walks ''around'' [[spoiler: Missing№/90's Kid]])

->'''Linkara:''' "So go ahead and create your kingdom of the Never-Should! Let the Glitch be everything, the distortion the reality! Become everything there is down to the ''tiniest'' particle until you are ''literally existence itself''! In the end, you'll still have the same damn problem: that's there is no ''challenge'' left- No Heaven to aspire to, no Hell to avoid. You will live forever, ''alone'' as everything, and ''existence itself'' shall be your prison! All experiences will be a part of you; all possibilities will have been considered and ''completed''. ''Every'' life-form, ''every'' molecule, every single Should and Never-Should and it will all. Have been. ''Done.'' Everything will be you, and everything will be ''meaningless''. And when you ''do'' become existence -- when the definition of existence equals ''[[spoiler:Missing№]]'' -- you will scream your shrill hiss and let it vibrate along the totality of your being, When the ''lie'' of your existence is lain bare, because there is '''[[IronicEcho simply.

--> '''-- Mr. T #2 Review'''

->Allow me to share a revelation I've had. For all of his bluster about [[CatchPhrase "With great power comes great responsibility,"]] Peter Parker is one of the most irresponsible superheroes ever. [[AesopAmnesia He never learns from his mistakes.]] [[ItsAllAboutMe Never takes into consideration how his life as Spider-Man affects everybody else.]]

->Now some would say that's the core concept of the character: [[BecomingTheMask the constant struggle between the mask and the man.]] But he never actually gives any consideration to the man, preferring to make excuses about it. He disappoints people around him all the time because "something more important" was happening as Spider-Man." But instead of trying to find ways to balance his two lives properly, he will go out of his way to make excuses and just be sad that being Spider-Man hurt his personal life. If he places more importance on being Spider-Man, [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies then he should distance himself from relationships that would hurt that.]] If he places more emphasis on being Peter Parker, [[RefusalOfTheCall he needs to sacrifice his time as Spider-Man.]]

->Now, that's not always going to be the case for everyone in the real world. But Peter never actually changes as a result of his actions. [[HereWeGoAgain He just makes the same mistakes over and over.]]

->During a storyline called "The Other", when Peter was dying from an untraceable condition (this was also written by [ [[Creator/JMichaelStraczynski the author of]] "One More Day"], by the way), he admits that [[WhatAnIdiot he doesn't even have life insurance.]] Peter has never made a plan about what would happen to his family if he were killed by a supervillain. He's never thought about the repercussions of his life if he should be maimed or killed while wearing the costume, to his wife or to his ''constantly dying aunt!''

->In a recent issue of "Avengers Academy", a group of teenage superheroes thought of several ways that he could have capitalized on being Spider-Man without revealing his identity to anyone. Now, admittedly, he was just a young, dumb teenager when he started out and didn't think of those things. But Peter is and has been an adult for ''decades'' now! [[Creator/JoeQuesada Forget about whether you like Spidey being married or not.]] The character himself still seems to operate like he's in high school - never growing up, never seems to recognize adult relationships, and [[WhatTheHellHero never actually taking responsibility for his life and the choices he's made.]] This is one of the reasons I decided to finally review "One More Day". [[DealWithTheDevil The deal with Mephisto]] is symptomatic of a bigger problem for the character and the people who write him: [[NotAllowedToGrowUp the unwillingness for the character to become an adult.]] He's supposed to be roughly twenty-five years old at the time of this story, maybe closer to thirty. And yet he repeatedly approaches his problems like a sixteen year old would, and is never actually prepared to act like a mature adult.

->I've made several jokes in the last two hundred episodes about how Peter Parker's life is an endless spiral of shame and misery, what with his friends and loved ones dying all around him or becoming supervillains because of his life as Spider-Man, ''and I mean it.'' The truth is that if Peter Parker ever cared about taking responsibility for his actions, he would have given up being Spider-Man a long time ago.

->But hey, maybe that's just the reasoning of a jaded individual looking at this stupid-ass comic in hindsight. Of course I don't want Peter Parker to stop being Spider-Man. What I want is for him to be written like a goddamn adult already! [[WritersSuck But the writers]] - [[ExecutiveMeddling and Marvel editorial]] - seem to steadfastly refuse to let that happen. Spider-Man is just escapist fantasy to them. The reason why they don't think there's "drama" in marriage is because marriage is an aspect of real life, and they don't want the escapism of Peter Parker swinging through the air and stopping bad guys being infected with the drama of things that people have to endure in the real world.

->And that's just [[SarcasmMode hilarious]] since Spider-Man is ''supposed'' to be the character who '''[[AdultFear DOES]]''' [[AdultFear face the real life challenges of the world!]] That was what made his character so appealing to begin with: his ability to relate to the reader. But the truth is that the reader has grown up. The reader got married, had kids, has relatives that die, and they have to move on. The reader changed. But Peter Parker has not.

->You know, recently, there was a rumor that Marvel was doing its own reboot to compete with the one DC did last year. They're not, of course, they're just releasing whole bunch of new Number Ones. But you know what? Maybe they should reboot Spider-Man. After all, if the creative teams are unwilling to let him get out of his high school life, ''[[ArmorPiercingQuestion then why the hell isn't he still there?]]''
--> '''One More Day Review Part 1'''

->'''Linkara''': This freaking comic just said that the reason people play video games and enjoy escapist fiction ''is because they're losers who want something more with their lives''! I don't know if it was Creator/JoeQuesada or [[Creator/JMichaelStraczynski JMS]] who wrote this, but considering JMS' body of work concerning speculative fiction ''and'' the fact that issues 3 and 4 of [[ComicBook/OneMoreDay One More Day]] were ''heavily'' rewritten, I think it's fair to assume that Joe Quesada wrote this, in which case, I have something to say...[[SuddenlyShouting YOU INSULTING, PATRONIZING]] '''''[[SuddenlyShouting DICKHEAD]]!''''' How '''[[WhoDares DARE]]''' you! How '''[[WhoDares DARE]]''' you insult video game creators and players! [[{{Hypocrite}} How]] '''[[{{Hypocrite}} DARE]]''' [[{{Hypocrite}} you criticize people for enjoying escapist fiction when FRIGGING SUPERHERO COMICS ARE ESCAPIST FICTION!]]
--> '''One More Day Review Part 2'''


->'''Linkara''': What's that? You want me to make jokes about how useless Aquaman is? Ha ha ha! *deep breath* Aquaman is the king of Atlantis, whose domain pretty much encompasses the entirety of the oceans. He own seventy percent of the planet. He is super-strong, super-fast, and he can summon Cthulhu to eat your soul if he felt like it. The perception of Aquaman as useless, is based on the Superfriends cartoon series, where Aquaman's superpower is that he owns a jet-ski. I don't make fun of Aquaman.

->'''Linkara''': Even ''you'' wrote about his refusal to have guns back in ''The Dark Knight Strikes Again''! Next thing you know the bat-cave is gonna have some massive ridiculous chaingun and [''cut to [[FanNickname Bearded Idiot]] with his massive chaingun''] Oh, goddammit!

->'''Linkara''': I think by now, you should know how I feel about ''ComicBook/{{Youngblood}}''. In case you don't, it sucks! You can yell until you're blue in the face about how the concept of a proactive superhero team that has merchandising and appears on talk shows and are celebrities and crap is such a wonderful idea, and it's just the execution that fails, but in the end, it doesn't change that Youngblood sucks! You can tell me about the runs from Creator/AlanMoore or the revived series from 2011, and that's great if they really are good, but it just keeps bringing me back to the question of why the hell anyone would want to do anything with this series when there is so much frigid' baggage with it!! Look, my rant against the Comicbook/XMen in my Next 15 Screw-Ups was [[IWasJustJoking half joking]]. I don't hate the X-Men and there are plenty of bad stories out there that have nothing to do with them, and there are great runs on the X-Men books. But Youngblood is a team that does not deserve all the hard work of creators! It's a bunch of unmemorable ripoff characters, growling and gritting teeth, and saying really stupid things, and squinting and doing over-exaggerated poses and all that crap! Let Youngblood die, already! Just let it die! Creator/RobLiefeld does not deserve [[CreatorWorship the amount of loyalty that he somehow has engendered]]!

->What's that? Rob Liefeld is really enthusiastic about the industry and is really an awesome guy if you know him in person, and loves comics and everything about the medium? Yeah, well, I'm really enthusiastic about the medium, but no one says that I should be drawing comic books!!

->[[WritersSuck Rob Liefeld can't write!]] [[OffModel Rob Liefeld can't draw!]] Rob Liefeld can't create! And don't go telling me about how he created SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} and {{Comicbook/Cable}}! One--he didn't create Deadpool! [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness He created some boring-ass mercenary who spoke in yellow-colored speech bubbles!]] [[MyRealDaddy Nobody would give a damn about him if not for the work of everybody else but him!]] And as for Cable, most of my knowledge of the character comes from [[WesternAnimation/XMen the animated series]], but even if Cable really is all that awesome and iconic a character, well, congratulations. [[OverlyNarrowSuperlative You have found one, all of one character that Rob Liefeld created that's actually good]], except a good creator is capable of making more than just one good character! Liefeld, on the other hand, settles on inventing 60,000 characters, and none of them are good!

->But to cite that Deadpool example again, is he really the one who created him if [[MyRealDaddy everything about the character that people like that was done by others]]? You show me a Rob Liefeld character that people like, and I'll show you the other creators who are responsible for you liking him.

->The point is, companies, stop giving him work! Consumers, stop buying things with his name on it! And my fans, stop telling me about movies that are supposedly being made with his characters! Ooh, a Godyssey movie! I'm sure I'll see that NEVER, because [[DevelopmentHell not a single movie that Rob Liefeld's characters have been developed for has actually ever been made]]! And don't bring up [[FanNickname "Not Deadpool"]] in the [[Film/XMenOriginsWolverine Wolverine movie]]! I should not have to explain that again - Deadpool's not really his character, [[InNameOnly that wasn't really Deadpool]], and he wasn't the main character of the damn movie!!

->-- '''[[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]]''', ''Top 15 Worst Heroes Becoming Villains''

-> You know, I sometimes get asked why ''Film/{{Camelot}}'' of all films is my favorite movie. And the reason is because it actually changed my life, or at least focused my beliefs into something that was a good solid foundation for a personal philosophy. [[ComesGreatResponsibility Those who have power should use it to do good]], that violence is not strength, compassion is not weakness, [[CycleOfRevenge that revenge is utterly pointless]]. Superheroes are basically the equivalent of modern day [[KnightErrant knights errant]], they go out and help people and fight injustices. But a lot of the best superhero comics are the ones not actually about superheroes hitting supervillains or [[LetsYouAndHimFight each other]], anything like that. It's the ones that show that superheroes are about kindness and decency and something far more noble than the adolescent power fantasies that people often critique them as. I think I hate this comic more than any other I've ever reviewed, because it is the complete antithesis of everything I believe in. ''Holy Terror'' says that you should be unkind, it says you shouldn't trust people, it says [[NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished compassion will be repaid with violence]], and [[ViciousCycle that violence can only be answered with more violence]], and that [[MightMakesRight violence is strength]]. That hurting others is not only enjoyable and desirable, but that it should be employed first when dealing with threats. It says that if you have power, [[SmugSuper you should lord that power over others and do harm to them]]. It says that revenge ''is'' a worthy cause. It treats women as either [[DamselInDistress victims]] or enemies, and don't assume Natalie Stack is immune to this criticism, trust me, the book ain't over yet. It tells us we should fear [[AbsoluteXenophobe the other, the foreigner, the dark-skinned, the religion that's not your own]]. And you know what the damndest thing of all is? I am honest to god afraid of terrorism. Terrorism is real. There are people out there who want to kill me either because I'm from a different country or just because they're some angry misanthrope with a gun. That applies to both foreign and domestic terrorists. Terrorism is about making someone so afraid that they'll do what you tell them to. And the [[AnAesop grand message]] of Frank Miller's ''Holy Terror'' is: Be afraid. Be terrified. And let's give in to that fear. And embrace every [[HumansAreBastards dark, sick and inhuman part of our souls]] as a result, and [[HeWhoFightsMonsters do everything to them that they will do to us]]. Frank... [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop you must be so proud]].
