Ever since I read the comic, I’ve always wondered what Nergal Jr was up to before becoming a general and what events lead him to sleep with Mandy, resulting in Minnie. As well as what his life is like generally in this universe , so I hope you can share what plans you and Bleedman originally had for him.
Reading his wiki page, something really struck out to me
“....or to be precise Nergal Jr. was forced to have an affair with the Underworld Queen.”
..... that sounds really rapey , like really bad. I’m hoping it’s just a bad usage of word placement and what really happened wasn’t like that at all.
I’m hoping you can clear this piece up for me at the very least if you don’t have the energy for anything else
Here are some ideas for currently-running and future comic series by Bleedman that have been running around my head for a while:
For PPGD, what if the Diamonds from Steven Universe were the masterminds behind Vexus' machinations, which are all part of a plan to make Cluster Prime and the Gem Homeworld (which is referred to as Gemtopia; a word play on "gem" and "utopua") the dominant superpowers in the universe? However, it is later revealed that Vexus secretly manipulated them into colonizing inhabitated worlds, thus breaking the Diamonds' one rule in planetary colonization, centuries ago. Yellow Diamond destroys Vexus by overloading her with her electric energy in retaliation for the lies, thus spraking a war between Cluster Prime and Gemtopia with Earth caught in the middle. Fearing both regret for falling for such villainy and fear of "universal extinction", Blue Diamond turns to the heroes of Earth (the Powerpuffs, Dexter, the Crystal Gems, the original Ben 10 cannon version of Ben Tennyson, K.O. and friends, etc.) for help in stopping the war before they all go down.
For Grim Tales, what if Him and Oogie Boogie's schemes were actually the work of Black Hat from Villainous, who is also revealed to be Junior's biological father? Once Chi eventually arrives at Grimskull Castle, she finds Junior and Minnie in the middle of their duel. Confused as to why they would kill each other despite all that Demongo has told her about them, she attempts to intervene only for them to unintentionally release Black Hat from his prison within Mandy's collection. He then proceeds to spark a three-way jailbreak between the Phantom Zone, the Real/Extreme Ghostbusters' Containment Unit, and the Null Void. With the inmates as his new army, Black Hat declares war against Mandy for imprisoning him and (surprisingly) Him for being "nothing but a no-good double dealing huckster". With the entire Underworld on the line, Junior and Minnie put aside their differences and lead the "Underlords of Tomorrow" into saving their world from total annhilation.
Both of these comics are then preceeded by Snafu Forces, in which the PPGD universe and the Grim Tales universe are "abducted" by Lord Vortech and incorporated into a makeshift world called "Planet Chronopolis". While investigating the other regions, Junior, Minnie, Dexter, and the Powerpuffs encounter a host of familiar heroes and villains. During this period, Lapis Lazuli "gives birth" to a Ruby that is referred to using male pronouncs and dubbed "Brains" due to his gem being placed on his forehead. Unfortunately, the heroes unknowingly allow Vortech to destroy the Nexus Tree, which has been maintaining the time zones for the abducted areas. When they discover that a potential method to disable Vortech's defenses that currently exists outside Planet Chronopolis, the heroes (referring themselve as "the Fellowship of the Rift") attempt to retrieve the scattered fragments of the Nexus Tree that have been scattered across Planet Chronopolis while at the same time uncover the true origins of Brains: he is in actually a Phantom Gem, a type of Gem capable of warping time and space using virtual reality powers.
Once the Nexus Tree is reassembled months later, they are suddenly ambushed by Black Hat, who uses the tree to unleash a terrible new threat: Surt, the Master of Ragnarok and the Ghostbusters' most ruthless enemy. Despite the overwhelming odds, Lapis and Brains manage to inspire the citizens of Planet Chronopolis to fight back against the "big bads". During the battle between the villains the the inhabitnts of Planet Chronopolis, Black Hat is knocked into the Netherverse by Junior when he tries to save Mandy, something she later feels proud of and admits this to her son. Vortech attempts to have another Phantom Gem, Eyeball, drop a sun on the Fellowship. However, Brains manages to cancel the attack and weakens Eyeball long enough for Lapis to ultimately defeat the evil Ruby with a nasty punch.
Syren then turns on Surt and her evil sister Banshee out of strength and will to stand up them that were given to her by seeing the Fellowship fight on. This allows her to unleash a sonic scream power that weakens Banshee long enough for her sister to recaptured by the Extreme Ghostbusters. Outraged with all this resistance, Surt absorbs Eyeball’s remains and prepares to wipe all the heroes with a single blow of Phantom Gem energy. Unfortunately, Stay Puft takes down Surt in a way that convinces the other Containment Unit inmates to turn on Surt. Despite this “setback”, Surt is about to deliver the killing blow only to get vaporized into nothingness by the Technodrome’s Fusion Cannon. Meanwhile, Fenris meets a demise parallel to the ending of the “final chicken fight” from Family Guy while fighting Ben and Enid.
Once Vortech is defeated, the villain is unmasked as an young adult version of Natalie, the apparent daughter of Ben and Enid that was concieved via teen sex. When Natalie was born, she possessed the combined powers of Ben and Enid's acestors. After being abandoned as a baby, she spent her life mastering her powers until she adopted the identity and powers of the original Vortech (the latter of which took place sometime following the events of Lego Dimensions). Natalie states that she has been what she is now becuase her parents never loved her, but Ben and Enid confess that abandoning her as a baby was the greatest mistake they ever made because they feared that all her powers could lead to disaster.
Realizing everything her parents feared as proven true through her villainy, Natalie decides to undo the damage she caused to the dimensions, allowing them to remain undisturbed. At the same, she creates alternate timelines of the dimensions in which her machinations are able to occur, thus limiting the amount of damage done to the space-time continuum. Having witnessed this from Axiom Nexus, the TransTechs appear before the Fellowship and propose that Planet Chronopolis could be repurposed as "Earth Beta", a replacement of the TransTechs' version of Earth that has been lost to them for eons. With the deal made and the planet's tranfer from Natalie's personal universe to the TransTechs' done, the Fellowship and their allies prepare for their new lives on Earth Beta.
