Crime Lords Month: Lest Ye Forget.

Bittersweet memories fill my soul this morning.  It is a sort of transition period in my life, and I was just remembering the fact that Stilt-Man actually won $40,000 once upon a time.  And, in case you need even more freaky Vs. System trivia to sprinkle on your cereal this morning, Typhoid Mary made Top 8 in Amsterdam too.

We fell in love with Mary long before Vs. System was even a twinkle in Upper Deck’s eye.  We collected the Marvel Masterpieces trading cards.  We worshipped the art.  We used them for all sorts of rituals.  The temple was formed, and the gods entered.  It was the best of times.

Today I invoke the spirit of the beautiful ugly that IS Typhoid Mary.  I need to get the magick back, and she may be the perfect symbol.  I will be re-infecting myself this morning, we shall see what kind of joyous bliss disease I can catch.

I will keep a running update in the comment section of this post.  Here goes nothing!

  1. This one is interesting, it also echoes to me from the past:

    “Together they send out vibrations of redemption, and have planned the spiritual technique of salvation for this age. The work of these two fully-illumined masters-one with the body, and one without it-is to inspire the nations to forsake suicidal wars, race hatreds, religious sectarianism, and the boomerang-evils of materialism.

    Great prophets like Christ and Krishna come to earth for a specific and spectacular purpose; they depart as soon as it is accomplished. Other avatars, like Babaji, undertake work which is concerned more with the slow evolutionary progress of man during the centuries than with any one outstanding event of history. Such masters always veil themselves from the gross public gaze, and have the power to become invisible at will. For these reasons, and because they generally instruct their disciples to maintain silence about them, a number of towering spiritual figures remain world-unknown.”

  2. This sounds eerily familiar, from the Marvel.com profile:

    “Suffering from dissociative identity disorder, Mary Walker has 3 other abnormal personalities in addition to her seemingly healthy one. Her “Mary” personality is a timid, quiet, pacifist; her “Typhoid” personality is adventurous, lustful, and violent; and her “Bloody Mary” persona is brutal, sadistic, and hates all men. Through hypnosis, her abnormal and psychotic personalities were suppressed and Mary Walker’s consciousness gained dominance. She then began to lead a normal life, even becoming a soap opera star.”

  3. This is some great stuff. Thank you for supporting Crime Lords Month!

  4. Of course it sounded familiar, Stu – I had to do my research somewhere!
