It is a commonly known fact amongst some circles that neither John Kennedy nor Elvis are actually dead. They faked their deaths and are living together on a private island owned by Aristotle Onassis.

This leads to the question, what if they are still alive in the Sixth World? If JFK and Elvis are, in fact, Immortal Elves? It can be a good hook for some run. Perhaps a conspiricy nut has some evidence that the IEs would rather have destroyed.

Which known IEs would have been most likely to assume these personas?

Obviously they were Ehran and Harlequin after a rather questionable series of bets.
Specifically, Ehran was Elvis after a very bad wager related to the success of zepplins as a means of mass transit. Similarly, Harlequin has actually been showing up repeatedly as some Kennedy or another and "dying" in a visible manner as part of his end of a questionable gamble about the dominance of cola companies.

Does Billy Beer play a role in this theory?

No Herald, you see: Bubba Ho-Tep was a documentary and the events happened in real time.

Right. JFK is black. Harlequin isn't. So, JFK is a black male immortal elf who used a Physical Mask spell to avoid skin color discrimination.

Strange...

I thought that *I* killed Kennedy...

Odd. Oh, well--I suppose that I got the REAL one....

Harlequin and Ehran must have been the pretenders--for Kennedy and Presley, respectively--who kept showing up in the headlines after the real ones were dead ....

:P

Nah, you were hired by the real Kennedy. The guy in the car was a lookalike actor.

Hmm...

I hadn't thought of *THAT* possibility....

Faulty intelligence-gathering, I suppose.

I should've learned never to entrust something that vital to underlings....

Oh, well.

As much as I *abhor* admitting it, not even *I* am perfect.

<SIGH>

I wonder if Harlequin ever did go around imperosnating famous dead people, just for kicks? that'd be great.

Canis:

Now *THERE'S* a thought....

Do you suppose that Harlequin and Jack "The Joker" Napier (Nicholson's role in BATMAN (1989)) are related?

There seems to be a strong resemblance....

:P

So that's where Harlequin's personal fortune really came from: he created Batman.
After all, shouldn't the Joker being getting royalties? (assuming your following the movie origins and not the comic books, in which it was just some street guy later killed by the Reaper. That's the limits of my DC -fu BTW)

fistandantilus3.0:

IIRC, Batman was created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger sometime in 1938. His first appearance was in DETECTIVE COMICS #27, in May, 1939.

Using your line of reasoning, Harlequin *COULD* have been living under one of those names--and passing himself off as a human--during that time.

By way of comparison, Superman was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster, and introduced in ACTION COMICS #15, in June, 1938.

For those of you who might not collect them, comic books are usually graded, in descending order, as follows-- "New", "Mint" (M), "Near Mint" (NM), "Very Fine" (VF), "Fine" (F), "Very Good" (VG), and "Good" (G).

Comics originally issued fifteen or fewer years ago (i.e., since about 1990 as of the present date) aren't usually graded any worse than "Fine"; however, comics older than that are very difficult to find in better condition than "Good" to "Very Good".

Finding such an old comic in better condition than "Good" to "Very Good" is nearly impossible.

Therefore, an example of either one in such condition is considered the "Holy Grail" of comics. For example, in April 2003, a copy of ACTION COMICS #15--in Very Good (VG) condition--sold at auction for U.S.D. $64,526.00.

A copy of either of the above issues in Very Fine (VF) to Near Mint condition could bring upwards of U.S.D. $100,000 to $200,000.

Bear in mind that the quoted figures are in current dollars. A copy of either in the SR universe--hey, it could happen ;)--would be worth several hundred thousand Nuyen.

Who knows? It might even be a good idea for a 'run. :P

Runner team leader: "Excuse me? You want us to get WHAT for you?!?"

Mr./Mrs./Ms./Miss Johnson #4372: "A copy of Action Comics #1 from 1938, in Near Mint condition, please. I've *ALWAYS* wanted one for my comic-book collection. I believe that Lofwyr has one in *HIS* personal collection...."

Runner team (collectively): <GULP> :eek:
