-> 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]].

[[note]]This rant was written three years before Deadpool got [[Film/Deadpool2016 his own movie]] that was [[{{Understatement}} vastly superior]] to the aforementioned ''X-Men Origins: Wolverine'', and the [[Film/Deadpool2 sequel]] to that film had Cable in a supporting role. However, since Linkara doesn't see Deadpool as a true Liefeld creation, and because Cable was not the main character in ''Deadpool 2'', it's unlikely he counts either of these.[[/note]]

->The major theme of Lovecraftian Horror is hopelessness. Insignificance. How tiny and unimportant we are in the grand scheme of things, and how, inevitably, we will be destroyed, or consumed, or turned into mindless slaves by beings that we can't even begin to comprehend. I believe in hope. I believe there's always a solution, always a way to beat the bad guys, but these. . . Outer Gods - these ''things'' - exist to tell us that "no, there is no way to beat things in the end," and I ''cannot'' abide that!

But if the Entity is still alive, or if someone like Vyce becomes it, then we're doomed, because. . . 'cause there's nothing else that we can do. And the same despair that killed ''it'' will kill ''us.'' And I will ''not'' let that happen. If the Entity is alive - or if Vyce becomes it - then I am gonna be the one to shove a sword through it's face, just so I can get up close enough to scream in their ear that '''''WE! ARE!
