“Musical vermin”

Films: Phantom of the Opera (1998)

Alias: None

Type: Natural

Location: Cave/Underground/Haunted home

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Is Hollywood just rigged to explode if it doesn't get another Phantom adaptation every single decade?! Why do we keep having to put up with this sto-oh wait, a totally different origin story? Okay, we'll bite...

History: This misanthrope of a man has no name. He was abandoned as a baby and found by a pack of rats. The rodents took pity on the child, and raised him as their own. The man, now known as the Phantom, kills anyone who comes too close to his turf. But now he's fallen for a beautiful singer, and you probably know how it goes down at this point.

Notable Kills: Nothing special

Final Fate: The Phantom soon finds that the authorities are coming for his head, so he sadly makes sure that the singer and her true love make it out safely before getting stabbed in the back. As he dies in the water, the rats and the singer can only watch sadly.

Powers/Abilities: None.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 3-This guy may not have to wear a mask, but he's one of the more unkempt Phantoms we've seen. His rat buddies make him sort of endearing, but he's still a stone-cold murderer not above raping his love interest and stalking her.

Trivia: -The Phantom was played by Julian Sands, the main star of the "Warlock" franchise.

-While not exactly raised by them, now-famous actress Jenifer Lawrence admits to having spent a lot of her early life living with rats in a run-down apartment, sharing food with them as they kept her company.

He may have no mask, but the shadows work for him anyway.

A bit of flame on that half of the face and you are a true phantom!

You might want to get your eyes checked.

His extended family, folks.

Get a haircut, hippie!
