D&D ContextEdit

  • Angels are a type of good-aligned monster. There is not enough information in the strip to classify this angel as a Deva, Planetar, or Solar.

Trivia Edit

  • The title is a reference to Dark Helmet's line from Mel Brooks' 1987 sci-fi parody film Spaceballs: "Now you see that evil will always triumph, because good is dumb."
