The Age Of Wonders

The Vatican Tapes sounds like it should be found footage but isn’t. It messes with The Exorcist template a little before going another way.

Specifically The Omen. Can’t just exorcise the Antichrist. She presents herself as a saviour, performing miracles.

See The Second Coming for that played straight.

The arrival (or return) of a superhuman figure of prophecy should freak out the current status quo. Are these the end times? Can anyone save the day?

(Norse gods don’t seem to have this effect on the Marvel Universe as a rule.)
