To-do list of Evil

This marks the first proper appearance of Beelzebub, who for some reason coexists with Hades.

If you're an avid Pokemon fan and are wondering why Beelzebub is a Snivy for some reason, it's a convoluted reference to the sequence in "Paradise Lost" in which Lucifer and the other demons of Hell are robbed of their limbs as punishment for corrupting creation.

You get the picture. He's a snake with limbs, he's an easy stand in for the devil. In later strips I put in a bit more effort into making this obvious, though that mainly translates to changing his color palette.
