Have just examined the episode in question, and he appears to specifically be a one off minion. I think it likely that Mr. A does stuff like that a lot, INCREASING the chances significantly of the person in question being someone we have not seen before. Though, out of curiosity, where the hell is Zack right now?

I dunno, but the real world Zack hasn't tweeted in a few days now...

Remember, Mr. A said that Zack was uninvolved previously. That probably extends to now as well. I was just being thorough.

But if Zack was retconned out Mr. A might not know. He can't have retconned him out of existence can he.

OK, so not Zack, and Mr. A talked. I thought that would happen. All right, I'm all done here for now...

Mr. A already confirmed that the number would be disabled. Don't hope for much. As to the site, I'm not seeing anything different except the Cthulhu pic, and we already knew what that was anyhow.

Also frankly I hope his spelling was better while he was still a teacher because his typo's are rediculous... He mis-spelt destruction in capslock, for goodness sakes.

Since Mr. A has implied that this is not an immediate concern, I'm not going to bother trying to track down the address associated with the phone number or anything, unless there's significant evidence that we should be caring about this teacher's misspelled ramblings.

The Phantom is almost certainly Erik, the Phantom of the Opera, and very likely the one from the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, since that's what people think of when they hear his name. Although personally, I think of the Claude Rains Phantom from 1943.

Or it could be this.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Phantom

It's very unlikely, VERY unlikely, but it could be him.....

Yeah, that's what I thought, but it's not him. He is drawn on the comic's front page, and you can clearly see Phantom (of the Opera)'s Memetic Outfit - a half-mask.

We might be looking around the right time period, though. Could he be any other comic character from that far back? it seems the oldest stuff is getting through first

Looking at the comic title page for the third time, I'm convinced now.

Should we add him to the Character Sheet?

No hang on, only when we're sure.

And the title page shows four-

A girl? with blonde hair, a green dress, wristbands, and a band around her head with a green jewel set into it.

A man with a cane, a long brown coat, a red sweater, green tie. red hair, glasses, gloves and a huge cube with Mr.A's profile on it in his left hand.

A man with a purple coat, brown hair and a beard.

And Erik, who seems to have gained all his hair back, and has a long knife in his belt. He's probably a Knife Nut then. I wonder where his Punjab Garroting Lasso Noose is....
