This weekend marks the release of the summer blockbuster The Green Lantern. Perhaps in an alternate universe somewhere down the wormhole there’s a similar event for our intrepid Superlative Hero “The Magic Lantern.” Presented in glorious sepia tones with wondrous “SteamMax” effects. Here’s a bit of background on our hero:
“Part skilled magician, part necromancer and known for the supernatural device he wielded, The Magic Lantern was able to conjure both human and animal spirits to do his bidding. He held the title of royal conjurer for the government of Rotterdam for 20 years before turning his unworldly invention towards the war to thwart evil. He discovered his namesake while exploring the underground catacombs of a burned out forgotten cathedral. From the moment he grasped the handle an otherworldly bond was formed, linking him to its dreadful powerful. With it he confronted and defeated such evil entities as Professor Mojo, Evil Comet, Major Marionette and the Dark Hell’s Ember. “
