Outlandish Death and Destruction

By Fiona Gregory, editor

Aug 3, 2013: Psycho Gecko, our universe’s version, is notorious from the comments section of the popular parahuman web fiction "Worm", where he has taken the tl;dr comment to a comic art form. It all makes sense (not really 😉 ) with the reveal that in some other dimension, he is a superpowered individual himself, devoted to Chaotic Evil. This is his blog, and well, your mileage will vary, on how funny you find it. A tolerance for scatological references will help. Despite that, I will say it has its moments.

For example, the best justification for reading Psycho Gecko?

" . . . outlandish death and destruction is pretty enjoyable at times. In this world, you get all this crazy stuff happening and people die, but they get to put stuff on tombstones like “Was killed by the MegaCrushinator” or they’re remembered as the victim of some high-profile evil genius in the middle of his plot to conquer the world. Can you imagine living in a world where you were instead just killed by some regular person off the street because the other guy was a racist or an overzealous neighborhood watchman?"
