I’m aware how stupid this strip is… you don’t have to tell me.
It all stems back to a condition me and my friends have where we call actors by different roles they have had.
But come on, how cool would it be to see the Balrog of Morgoth fighting Magneto the Master of Magnetism?
In addition to just wanting to do this for the stupidity of it, it was also me wanting to play with different effects. Said effects make me wish I did a fantasy or superhero comic all the time.
I also had a different idea for this that was even more stupid. I thought about having Magneto fighting Balrog from Street Fighter… but, that was really just Marvel vs. Capcom.
Plus, I really wanted to draw the cooler Balrog.
