"Big top trouble"

Films: Something Wicked This Way Comes (1983)

Alias: The Illustrated Man

Type: Mystical

Location: Civilized area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: The Devil comes in many forms. But we're not even sure this is the big guy downstairs. All we know is that he's been around for quite some time, and should he try to entice you with making your dreams come true, turn the other cheek and leave Mr. Dark in the dust.

History: Mr. Dark is one of the Autumn People, those who feed on misery and negativity. He is their leader, and runs a travelling circus to collect the souls of those he makes deals with to fulfill their wishes (at a high price, of course). His most recent target is a small town in Illinois, and he's keen on taking it over as they flock to his Pandemonium Carnival.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: Eventually, Mr. Dark is thwarted when a kid and his father make amends with each other, destroying any negativity giving him power. He finds himself on a carousel that causes him to age into a withered husk as his carnival goes up in flames.

Powers/Abilities: Feeds off sorrow, and is practically omnipotent.

Weakness: Anything positive.

Scariness Factor: 4-When your name is literally "Mr. Dark", chances are that not many will trust you. But people do for some reason, and this dapper, suave villain trounces them all at any given opportunity. Indeed, this way did something wicked come.

Trivia: -Mr. Dark was played by Jonathan Bryce, who became notable for his performance as the main character in 1985's "Brazil"

-The original screenplay was written by Ray Bradbury...all the way in 1958. It wasn't until Walt Disney Pictures picked it up did any of it see the light of day.

Have a seat over there, please.
Evil magic is not a toy, sir. Sir? Sir, you're alive but a mass of prunes, so speak up.
