Jackie Lantern's Insane Antics: Rock of Gib AltarJackie Lantern says, "Mwah-hahahahahaaaa! After all these years, finally, I can start fixing my ultimate weapon! For over a century I have left the full might of Halloween languish while I sought the answer to the age old question, 'Why is my stuff broken?' Now... I have that answer! And that answer is, 'By gathering Chaos Focuses and doing things with them!' CHAOS FOCUS #1! COME TO ME!"

Wildfire says, "Oh that sounds -fantastic-."

Witch Hunt: Babette Log Pt. 1 There are many places in the Multiverse where Adalinda Blumenkrantz has never been. But there are also many places right here on Earth (or the iteration she hails from) she has ALSO never been. One such place is the United States of America.
