Subj: Also, I like the implication that The Mandarin has already won, and won a long time ago.

I've been designing a new sig, and I was wondering what you guys think of it?

The new message in it is based on what I think Stan Lee was getting at when he had The Mandarin begin life by squandering every bit of his fiefdom's money training himself into a living weapon. I think this is the type of person he intended The Mandarin to be at his core. It also fits into with his various social darwinist schemes to do things like kill all the weak-gened with extremis to make way for the strong, and with speeches he's made like "To know that you are superior, in mind, in body, in spirit, that is everything! To know that power is your birthright, to know that untold thousands exist on this world for no reason but to serve you, to channel their power through your empire, be it of land or of business, channeling it upward to fuel you, to fuel your glory!"

By focusing on the ills of society, and pointing out how those ills are desirable in his philosophy, you can present the world as a place in which The Mandarin has won, and actually won a long time ago.
