|Okay, so yeah, my whole theory is that Drucker wanted Promethea back after he shot her host Bill. But in so doing, merged and became a host himself. He wasn't prepared for the transformation, and fought back... making an "insane Promethea is too dreadful to comprehend" -Grace, issue 4 (Not that Grace knows about Dennis, but that WE are set up to figure it out.)|
Dennismethea, merged fantasy imagery with Dennis's violent lifestyle, becoming the Bond-like superagent Painted Doll. And while I agree the Doll IS Promethea's responsibility, I don't think Sophie or anyone quite realizes that yet. The 5 Swell Guys probably consider him their top priority.
I don't think there is a balance to the Promethea being creative and Doll being destructive as much as the Doll is Promethea's Qlippoth. Dennis is nuts because his reality crashed, and his imagination crashes and kills and destroys, like a stupid video game. I'm thinking there's going to be a serious book-blowing confrontation between Bill and Dennis later, probably in two years.
In all honesty, I'm thinking Promethea needs to find a male host who isn't nuts or "wanting to be a goddess". As we've seen with the recent fight in 24, all hosts ARE the little girl, and any fight that exists between them is a conflict for the source. Bill needs to have a serious sitdown with the Promethea Force(D'oh! Phoenix, what?) and resolve the fact that he IS a man, and that she can be one too. Once that Lovers card is laid down, and genders are liquified, they'll be able to fight the Painted Doll.
And once Grace and Stacia break up, I think Stacia may still put on Promethea on her own once in a while...
