I'm not much one for comic books or anything based on comics, primarily because it's always about good guys. However, prior to the crossover with batman(and the protagonist's decision to become a good guy), The Darkness is actually pretty good. The video games are also reasonably decent. While I prefer the art and voice acting for the first game, the sequel has given me . . . ideas(always dangerous).
My big thought for today about shamelessly stealing from other sources stems from this. It made me think about maybe having goblins or kobolds having slaying a house cat(a dangerous animal by 1st level character standards) as a coming of age ritual, or maybe as a requirement for skilled goblin warriors to challenge the current chieftain for leadership.
