Actually, Van Sloan is supposed to have done a similar address to the audience at the end of “Dracula,” but that was censored from the final print: Just a moment, ladies and gentlemen! A word before you go. We hope the memories of Dracula and Renfield won’t give you bad dreams, so just a word of reassurance. When you get home tonight and the lights have been turned out and you are afraid to look behind the curtains – and you dread to see a face appear at the window – why, just pull yourself together and remember that after all, there are such things as vampires!
Somewhere the Borg Queen is watching Xaxos and thinking, HE’S got possibilities…
Which means one of two things; this plot line is far from over… or Mr. B. is planning a spinoff strip focusing on Mr. Dallas.
I think it will thrill you. It may shock you. It might even horrify you. So, if any of you feel you do not care to subject your nerves to such a strain, now’s your chance to… well – we warned you.

SAM’S SCHOOL for SUPERVILLAINS Bayonne, NJ Lesson #68: Backfiring: Our test case above has entered the “friend zone” of Supervillainy; he is not powerful or rich, is not feared nor has achieved revenge. He has become an inspiration to others. It is probably not what he anticipated, whatever his primary motivation might have been. And his influence has not been the kind a person pursuing such a goal might desire – instead, he has driven another person to study a useful skill for humanity. Worse, he now has someone interested in his handiwork in the hopes of learning more. Such types can be a frightful nuisance to the budding (or rebounding) bad guy, not to mention a potential source of state’s evidence should they turn on you… if, that is, they go the legal route. Perhaps out test case is feeling his age catch up with him, not to mention mechanical failures, and he’s starting to let other people into his world. Either way, I feel he may jump ship and join with our rivals at the Famous Costumed Crimefighters’ School.
