A weeping angel would look nice. The demonic face, not the normal one.

I think what I went with fits him better. Don't bother trying to change it, Isis. You'll regain that privilege when you've proven yourself worthy of it.

I actually quite like it.
And each faction in the Axes of Evil is, in and of itself, an Axis of Evil.

No faction would ever believe itself to be evil. Ever. Even the Nazi's thought they were carrying out the will of God.
Now please, I mean PLEASE, stop soiling our nifty little setting with stupid ideas.

The Troglen concepts of 'good' and 'evil' were entirely defined by visitors from space. When they began their mission, they were carrying out the will of their God, but the various explorers and such had said they were 'evil' for hating light. They still don't really understand the whole concept.
Also:
Spoiler: show
A story from the Tracts of Slark, the holy text of an ancient Irken religion: First came the world, and then came the people; this happened before the world was known as Irk and the people were known as Irken. In this time, we were alone.

Next came the water, the great cold lakes; this happened before the water burned. In this time, we were no longer alone, and we were all Tallest.

Last came the god of the waters, Slark, who once ruled over us; this happened before we rose up as a unified civilization. In this time, we were no longer all Tallest, and we were virtuous.

In this time when we were virtuous, Slark filled us with pain, for the virtuous always suffer; in this time we were tied to Slark, and thus to the waters, for that was where He dwelt. When we were filled with pain, only Slark could deliver us from our suffering, so we would seek Him in the waters, and our pain would burn away, and we would die.

However, the Youngest Tallest found a way to sever our ties to the waters and to end our suffering; but our other Tallest, who were few, for we were no longer all Tallest, warned us that this way to sever the ties would turn us evil. We could either choose to be evil, or to be virtuous.

We chose to be evil; thus with the Youngest Tallest as our guide, we severed our ties to the water and to Slark, and ended our suffering. In this time, we were no longer virtuous, and we were alone.

This was when our world was named Irk, which means to annoy, to anger, and to do evil; this was when our people were named Irken, the agents of Irk, and thus the agents of evil. By shunning our god Slark, we have never had to burn in the waters to remove our pain again, for the evil, unlike the virtuous, do not feel pain.

This is why we are proud to be evil.

Replace 'water' with 'light' and you've got the gist of it.

To say that something is evil means that it is very bad. If you faction see's itself as evil then they obviously don't believe in what they do.

I just had an idea. How about we rename this thread to "Grown Men Arguing With a 12 Year Old Over Morals". Seriously.

Things were pretty much doomed the moment everyone and their grandmother jumped on the damn bandwagon. It's only gone downhill since then. :P

Yes, but Isis is 12. Like it's going to understand that level of historical detail.
And also, once again, no large, organized, group of people would ever consider themselves "evil"

They've been blasting each other in the backstory, but currently it's stalemate.

I'll be Removing the Axis of Evil since Isis has been Banned from the forums and Ken still hasn't added his WFTU faction.
