Hi, folks! Working on the next part of Martian Manhunter. In the meantime . . .

The Angel characters were created by Joss Whedon.


It had been a job and a half, getting rid of the two ghosts, but the family was paying them handsomely. Handsomely enough to get Cordelia, Wesley and Angel to Arizona, at any rate.

Wesley, with Cordelia’s assistance, had taken care of the exorcism, while Angel busied himself defending the family from the last-gasp attacks of the two ghosts, who were picking up objects and throwing them around as though their unlives depended on them. Which, you know, they did.

A flying vase hit one of the family’s two dogs, who’d escaped from the bedroom the family was hiding out in when one of the ghosts had flung open the door -- Wesley and Cordelia completed the ritual, and everything calmed down.

The father came downstairs, followed by his wife, their four children, the other dog, and a cat, paid them, and they left.

The hardest part? Getting the ghosts’ names straight. The father and mother had deferred to the children, who had actually seen the phantoms. It took several tries before the Angel Investigations crew finally were able to get that the kids weren’t simply yanking their chains.

Of course, it’s hard to blame them. What kind of ghosts went around with names like “Ida Know” and “Not Me” anyway?


So who created the crossover characters?

Not Me!

(Bil Keane.)
