The Reverend Dr.. Jeremy Atticus Apollo Westerfield is indescribable, but he is a Villain’s Villain, and we’re lucky to have him.
What to expect
Dr. Armitrage’s actions are generally not able to be described in words; this is for the benefit of our valued patrons and colleagues. As Mr. Lovecraft said,“We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.”It is not entirely sure if Mr. Lovecraft was describing the works of Dr. Westerfield, but it appears likely.
What He’s all about
I, the Reverend Doctor Jeremy Westerfield of the of the Ancient and Noble House of Westerfield, possessor of a Doctorate of Thaumaturgical Arts and Sciences from Miskatonic University, founder of the Church of the Esoteric Order of “Bob”, do hereby announce a celebration of the 100th anniversary of a magnificent victory by Dr. Armitage Westerfield! On January 1st, 1919, the original Dr.. Westerfield issued a dire threat of destruction to the city of Boston, Massachusetts.. Unless they paid the reasonable sum of $10,000,000 (approximated $130 million today) within two weeks, he would unleash a terrible destruction upon the city.. The populace was fearful, the press was wary, and the politicians were skeptical.. They foolishly ignored Dr.. Westerfield’s demand, and paid the price.On the 15th of January, the day after the deadline passed, Boston found itself in a very sticky situation.. Dr.. Westerfield enacted his revenge by engineering the failure of a large tank that stored upwards of two million gallons of molasses on a hill overlooking downtown Boston.. A wave of molasses, 25 feet tall at its peak, swept through the city at an incredible 35 mph! It forced buildings off their foundations, mowed down 21 people, injured another 150, and killed untold dozens of animals.. It was glorious, and it established the name Westerfield forevermore in the nightmares of the people of the United States, and demonstrated that supervillains were a force to be reckoned with!As this day marks the 100th anniversary of this magnificent event, we pay tribute to this great work by pouring molasses upon the street.. This year we have chosen the main thoroughfare of Battleground Avenue in Greensboro, NC, at rush hour.. May the world never forget the work of Dr.. Armitage Westerfield! And when the time comes to reveal ourselves, the world will never forget the name SCORPION. O~O~O~O~O~O~O~O~O~O~O A press photo of the Rev.. Dr.. Westerfield is forthcoming. Unfortunately our staff photographer came down with a sudden case of outspokenness, and due to his supervisor’s shortsightedness, the camera equipment is currently at the bottom of the shark tank. Evil photographers are rare, and we have not yet found a replacement. O~O~O~O~O~O~O~O~O~O~O Our rival organization, the Consortium of Genius (C.O.G.), led by the so-called Dr.. Milo T. Pinkerton III, has the public face of a rock band in New Orleans. The majority of their symposia are in that area, so it may be the cowards will not venture out into the greater nation. Much as it offends my sensibilities to say, these so-called evil scientists are able musicians.. (I guess it’s good to have a profession to fall back on.) I particularly like their songs Science Fight, Bucket of Blood (vampiric pirates), Oh What A Friend We Have in Cthulhu (gospel song), and Die Barney Die. These musicians would be a good match for your Evil Expo (if they can keep their delusions of grandeur to themselves!).
