Have you ever read The evil overlord list? I think it is both funny and entertaining.

I have, its long, right and as funny of hell! :D

And you can bet the Overlords have read it too, or were at least smart enough to know its points, like Making yourself immune to your own weapons and the Dangers of Monologuing ;)

They may have read it but it only helps if you listen to all the rules. Editor where are your crocodiles? Also thanks, the monologue answers my previous question as to what the Evil Overlords did wrong.

I think we all know that you can never adhere to all the rules in the book... and you have to tell us WHICH rules they didn't follow which actually made an impact on the end result...

And I'm not letting you off the hook without you telling how in the heck you can claim the example of monologuing can tell you exactly what you believe the EOU's did wrong?

The Editor was a naga, and Deception was a dragon. What use did they have for a crocodile? I think they had plenty of reptilian critters already.

# 39, 142
The 39 rule is don't ride in front of the battle. What did the Editor do? 142 just was funny and I thought deserved an honorable mention due to hilarity.
I will now demonstrate why monologues are bad. :cry:
Philosopher positions a dummy down range and then promptly pushes a button on a controller after getting up range. The dummy immediately begins to talk "Hell (boom)...". Philosopher then shouts "Reset!" after having shot the dummy. The dummy is loaded and starts its speech again "Hello, I am the (slash)...". A thrown axe sticks out of the dummy and Philosopher begins a speech " As you can see by monologueing you give the hero or villain a free opportunity to take you down with little effort. I hope everyone has learned the reasons why monologues are dangerous to the monologuees.". :!:

Actually, the Editor was far from the frontline of the battle, notice how sends his forces ahead to counter the attack of the Alliance in the opening of the battle? It's not like he was afraid or not powerful enough to take to the front, but from the back he could oversee and control the battle of his forces. As for the other EO's, Celine walked through the battlefield, striking where needed as did Fellback, Dr. Catatastrophe held back to call for reinforcement (HA's forces), only Deception went to the frontline... but whereelse would a powerful Dragon go?
Scale and her allies actually had to fight/sneak their way through the battlefield in order to get close enough to confront the Editor face-on.

Oh yes, monologuing is bad and dangerous to villains, no doubt about that!
However, monologuing is an inheritated treat in villains and heroes alike, especially with the former, and the EO's HAD to endulge it.... however, at the time during the Wars when they did so, they were well aware of the dangers and, like the Editor, kept an eye on their back, ready to cut the monologuing short if necessary.
Monologuing didn't kill the EO :)

It is hard to tell the Editor is in the back watching with all the fighting happening in front and behind him<a href=" http://eou.comicgenesis.com/d/20070918.html">link</a>. So where was he because I question the EOU winning or at least stalemating if the attackers got that far though his army. As to the crocodile it was funny and required a trap door, a little grandchild, and a non mutated crocodile.

The Editor doesn't have any children, let alone grandchildren. Also, I lot of the so called 'good guys' gunning for him were sociopathic enough for that lame trick not to work.

I did say that the crocodile thing was funny right? I did not actually mean he needed a crocodile. I wonder how you beat sociopaths.

The eyes opened for a moment.

"From practice, using a shovel to beat them seems to work quite nicely."

The eyes closed again, and a slight snoring sound can be heard.

What was the the Editor's motivation for the mass crossover? Does the Editor come from the same universe as Zworgue, Deception, and Dr. Catastrophe?
Also on a mental note never leave anything for the Editor to beat you with, especially shovels.

I won't speak for Eddy's motivation, as that would be presumptuous. But as for your latter question, no, he didn't.

Thanks. Well, if we don't know what his primary motives were then what did Eddy plan to do if he did conquer any comics or lands?

It wasn't brought up in the comic what their ultimate intention was, and I don't think anyone would really want to ruin the surprise to reveal it if they knew. :)

What, you need some kind of motive to rule multiple realities other than, you know, ruling multiple realities? :P

Well, Eddies plans may have had a the ends justify the means. So Eddy could have been a saint doing evil things to accomplish a greater good or in his mind anyway. Eddy also could have been doing it for evil reasons and believed them wrong or anywhere in the gray area.
