One of my favorite pop culture characters was the man known as Kronos the conquer leader of the four horsemen a legend through time decimating the world in his wake. Born over 5000 years ago and appearing more frequently in circa 1800 BC during the Bronze Age, Kronos(pestilence) was recognized as the originator of the Horsemen. Which incorporated fellow Immortals Methos(death), Silas(fame), and Caspian(war), who created a group of horsed raiders who pillaged and slaughtered across two continents throughout the Bronze Age. From their achievements grew the fable of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. He forced two rules on the Horsemen: all the plunders of war are meant to be distributed equally among them, and “We never raise a blade against each other.” This, however, did not stop tension among the members: Caspian held Silas in contempt, Methos cordially hated Caspian, and Kronos kept himself aloof, demanding ruthlessness and brotherhood from the others, a dichotomy that was bound to implode quickly. In 615 BC in Mesopotamia, on one occurrence, he met the Kurgan, following his triumph over a different Immortal. Kronos tried to convince him to join the Horsemen in order to secure up for Methos’s absence. The Kurgan declined, insisting that the rules stated that Immortal battle was rigorously one on one and that the Horsemen’s Alliance would not last because there can be only one. The incident forever transformed the relationship linking the Horsemen, and soon the band was sundered and lost to each other.
Kronos tried hopelessly to find followers similar to his former brethren, but nothing was able to match what he had with them its like packing boxes without a place a to put them.
“A dozen times I tried to take up the old ways, I failed. The others I rode with were trash. Scum. I had no one to plan my raids, no one who understood the true use of terror.”

Following the Dorian Gray is the subject of a full-length portrait in oil by Basil Hallward, an artist who is fascinated and captivated by Dorian’s beauty; he maintains that Dorian’s beauty is responsible for the current mode in his art as a paint-slinger. Through Basil, Dorian faces Lord Henry Wotton, and he soon is fascinated by the aristocrat’s hedonistic worldview: that beauty and sensual satisfaction are the only ideas worth pursuing in life. Newly learning that his beauty will fade, Dorian displays the will to sell his soul, to ensure that the image, rather than he, will age and fade. The wish is granted, and Dorian continues a libertine life of different and amoral experiences while remaining young and beautiful; all the though his portrait ages and records every soul-corrupting sin. The Picture of Dorian Gray begins on a beautiful summer day in Victorian era England, where Lord Henry Wotton, a hard man, is recognizing the sensitive artist Basil Hallward depicting the portrait of Dorian Gray, a good-looking, youthful man who is Basil’s final muse. While sitting for the painting, Dorian listens to Lord Henry espousing his hedonistic worldview and begins to think that beauty is the only aspect of life worth pursuing. This prompts Dorian to wish that the painted image of himself would age in his stead. In the time before automobiles they carriages so tow car isn’t need back in those days but then again a horse is more reliable then a car. Continue reading
One of the most dangerous enemies in the Chronicles of Riddick is Riddick himself since he comes from a race called the furrions who once waged war against other human inhabited worlds before the necromonger invasion. They say that a fusion os destined to stand against a religion that would convert or destroy any civilization that comes before them. Necromonger is a belief that all life can be reborn in the underverse a place that is after our life ends. The one law that who live in this religion is you keeps what you killed meaning you earn what you get. The lord marshal is the undying example of what necro can do to their enemies in the Chronicles of Riddick even Riddick himself couldn’t compare to him in a battle. After a complete loss, he is taken to a prison world in a forgotten part of the galaxy run by a group of degenerate who even heard about the war the necromongers are waging against other human worlds just as they did to furryia a long time ago. They say that a no warrior could stand against the unmatched superior killing ability born in a species like the furrions, but the sheer number of necros is what overwhelmed them, which is what they are doing to the helium system.

The most interesting creature in the universe of guardian of the galaxy is Ronin the Accuser a being come from the race called the Kree who seeks to pass judgment on his people’s ancient enemy Xandarians. The reason I identify with this character is his need to punish a people who have done nothing but kill lie and butcher his world, and now that he seeks the justice they call him a radical. Nowadays I can relate since I still my people ancient enemies still exists meaning were letting someone who used they power they had to ruin many people’s lives just because of a foul ideal, which is overlooked for some small sense of civility. The new foundation of this peace era in these times is so coincidental since judgment being passed now is true not just lies fueled by greed. To allow those who have sinned to continue to flourish shows a selfish agenda of leading to a form of global economic domination not seen since the European kingdoms colonized the world.
