Hod’s really pouring himself completely into this villain role.

LOL, monologues are akways the cause of a villians downflall, right?
He obviously should have watched a re-run of the Incredibles . . . .
Nobody told Hod stereotypes are bad for a villain’s health?
Apparantly, nobody told him angry Sifs were bad for his health either.
I doubt a hammer like that helps his health either.
Lol, most excellent scene right here.
I was sorta wondering when Odineye stopped talking with the black, icy speech bubbles. Just in the Norse Force?
@smjjames – Usually. He had the right motive… to delay them until he was invulnerable. But it doesn’t look like he delayed them long enough, did he?
@Theala Sildorian – Everyone should. Especially if they have the DVD and can watch Jak-Jak Atack as well.
@Myrddin – Sometimes, stereotypes can be used as an advantage. Sometimes…
@Pietro – Nope, apparently not.
@Wolf Gunnison – Hammer to the chest = poor health. As for Odineye’s speech balloons, I stopped those a long time back. My friend Kep started those when he was lettering the comic for us, and I really liked the look of them. I continued them for a while but they take a little longer for me to work with (and when he gets wordy… ouch). I might play around this weekend and see if I can convert those over to my new system of lettering (that’s much quicker).
I’ll not feel right until that bratty little Pookah is accounted for, Hel and Baldor are outta the machine, and all is right again.
Even villanous Hod had plans within plans.
Well, on thinking about it some more, I guess I can understand Hod’s monologuing. After all, he’s had all those dark, lonely years trying to set out on the bravest of quests . . . and kept getting interrupted. What’s a poor, misunderstood artist to do?
He really should have expected another interruption.
Lesson One: Never monologue until after the heroes are dead.
Lesson Two: If you’re Hod never expect to finish that wonderful monologue you always wanted to do.
Lesson Three: Stay away from furious Sif.
“Stay away from furious Sif,” otherwise known as
“Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.”
Which is something Hod should have considered. For if he had killed Sif, then hell would have had the fury of a woman scorned, and he could have absorbed it. There’s a scary thought!
What Hod now has to realise is that his failure to see that truth means that Hel IS a woman scorned; and that’s probably even scarier.
Will Hod be schooled again?!
so… this is fun and all, but when are we going back to the fun fun childhood antics?
@Wynnefredd – Yes, Hod is very planny.
@Theala Sildorian – The interruption is Hod’s greatest nemesis.
@Ithil – Good lessons, but on lesson one, it always feel awkward monologuing to a room full of dead people. Uhh… not that I’d know what that feels like.
@Galant – Scorn for the win!
@sprotte – He might. He just might.
@Ren – Monday. We didn’t want to leave this story unfinished, but we missed the little ones so much, Seth and I created a new extra that we’ll be putting up on Mondays called “Brat-halla: Random Encounters”. Just fun quick stories, but with extra Norse godling power. Look for it Monday morning!
great! more brats!
Coolness. I’ve enjoyed this story. I’m eager to see what you guys are cooking up next.
One question tho: why did Hod turn evil in the first place? We know he went bad at the end of Mjolnir Madness . . . but the why is a little unclear. Is he just trying to prove he’s smarter than the rest of the familiy? (as if we didn’t already know, tho I guess the family didn’t).
nah they were implying it in those little Hod’s comics things. He went insane due to never havng any alone time and decided to rectify that by distroying everything that wasn’t him lol
@Theala Sildorian – You’ll find out why Hod turned evil… next week.
@Itzal – Good theory. That would be enough to drive me insane.
Well… that’s what drove ME insane.
*cuddles Hod again, just because she can*
In the Jastaverse, Hod dies as per the usual (murdered by his father’s illegitimate godling giant kid Vali) and ends up in Nibelheim where he marries Hel and they live happily ever after. *grins* But I’ll take what I can get.
*sits back with popcorn and a banner that says ‘Go Hod!’*
Was it really Sif that stopped it, though? Or was the power-transfer complete? I notice a distinct lack of demon-critter falling from the shoulder…
