Xykon: Check it out! Feet! I'm a whole skeleton again!

Panel 5

Angelic Being: If you walk the Path of Evil, you will find naught but your destruction within its walls!

Xykon: Wow. You know, you've really given me something to think about.
Angelic Being: Really?

Panel 11

Xykon: Flying zombies! I can't believe I never thought of it before!

Angel-Roach: I don't like where this is headed...

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."
