Recently a film titled The Rocky Horror Picture Show has become wildly popular among the adolescent and young adult subculture, attaining “cult” status. This film portrays a disguised version of a classified incident known as The Denton Affair, therefore to determine if The Rocky Horror Picture Show indicates either a threat to national security or a leak of intelligence a new review of The Denton Affair with updated intelligence and analysis is in order.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show starts off with “Brad” and “Janet” attending a wedding of one of their friends. Inspired by the wedding Brad proposes to Janet and she accepts. They decide to go visit “Dr. Scott”, an old teacher of theirs to inform him of the engagement. Enroute to Dr. Scott’s Brad’s car has a flat tire and did not have a spare. Brad and Janet walked to the nearest residence, the Frankenstein place, to use the phone. Upon arriving at the Frankenstein mansion they are greeted at the door by “Riff Raff”, a butler and “Magenta”, a maid. A party is in progress but Brad and Janet are not interested in joining it. The host of the party and the mansion’s owner “Dr. Frank N. Furter” decides to show Brad and Janet what he has been working on his lab. As might be construed from the name of the mansion, “Dr. Frank N. Furter” has built an artificial man. Unlike Frankenstein’s creation however this is not a monstrosity but rather a bronzed, blond Adonis. After the creature has been resurrected a young man with a ducktail haircut and wearing a biker’s leather jacket emerges from a large walk in freezer. This is “Eddie”, one of Frank N. Furter’s previous guests. Frank N. Furter kills Eddie with an ice axe.
After this Dr. Frank N. Furter took the hand of the creature and led the creature, “Rocky” away from the laboratory. According to several hints in the film, Frank N. Furter took the creature away to engage in unnatural sexual congress. Brad and Janet were shown to separate rooms to spend the night. Posing as Brad, Frank N. Furter seduced Janet. Posing as Janet, Frank N. Furter seduced Brad. While Frank N. Furter was dallying with his guests, Rocky escaped. As everyone searched for him, Janet found Rocky and engaged in sexual congress with him. A wheelchair bound Dr. Scott showed up at the Frankenstein place searching for Eddie. Dr. Frank N. Furter invited Dr. Scott and the rest of his guests to dinner. At this dinner, Dr. Scott revealed that Dr. Frank N. Furter and his friends are actually aliens. Dr. Frank N. Furter discloses, to the horror of his guests, that they have actually been eating Eddie.
Frank N. Furter
paralyzed his guests with a ray. They awakened in the middle of an orgy in a
swimming pool. Riff Raff informed Frank. N. Furter that he is assuming command
and that they will be returning to their home planet
The film was an outlandish depiction of the real events.
The facts are as we know them. Brad Darrow and Janet Weiss, two students at a local college were on their way to visit a Professor’s house for dinner. Enroute their car suffered a blow out. Visiting the nearest house for the use a telephone, Mr. Darrow and Miss Weiss became accidentally involved in the arcane schemes of Baron Igescu.
Igescu was involved in two related projects. One was to revive a positronic robot and cover its frame with real flesh. The second as to build a device that would allow the Baron and his fellow “countrymen” to travel through interdimensional space. The flesh covered robot was supposed to be the navigator for their journey.
The ritual to power up the device and the robot needed human sacrifices. The unfortunate Mr. Darrow, Janet Weiss and the missing entertainer, Conrad Byrdie were marked to be the sacrifices. However during the course of the ritual, Igescu’s minion revolted. This set off an explosion which destroyed the mansion where the ceremony was being held.
It was believed for many years that everyone but for Mr. Darrow and Miss Weiss perished in the explosion.
Their testimony has been substantiated and expanded upon by further investigation and intelligence from other sources.
Dr. Chienne-Chaud, Frank N. Furter b.1900
After the Denton Affair Igescu surfaced in 1955 according to the testimony of Charles Javier (For detail see CIALD dossier PROFESSOR X). Although the details are unclear, it appears that Igescu was either attempting to rebuild the shattered grail or create a device that would accelerate the process by which Ogs trapped in energy forms could once again take on a solid physical form. Charles Javier stopped Igescu from achieving his goal although it cost Javier the use of his legs.
Baron Igescu once more encountered Brad Darrow and also Charles Javier in 1964 in a CIALD sponsored mission which prevented him from utilizing a device stolen from BIG BLUE’s Arctic Fortress. Having been modified the device, a PHANTOM ZONE PROJECTOR, may have been able to give substance to his “dead” Og companions. The PZP was damaged but Igescu escaped with it.
In 1965 Igescu once again tried use the stolen PZP in conjunction with a partially regenerated grail. Javier and Darrow thwarted him in this effort. Finally the Baron attempted to immanentize the grail in 1968 with Herald Childe as an unwilling participant in this round of rites. Due to Childe’s participation these rites took on a different form but also resulted in murders and strange disappearances as detailed in IMMANENTIZING THE GRAIL. Having succeeded in this endeavor, Igescu disappeared in 1968 and has not reappeared.
Columbia Bellocq aka Columbia Regardie b. 1918. d. 1956
was a showgirl and part time prostitute employed at Lady Vanity’s Jazz Emporium
and Dance Hall in the Storyville district of New Orleans,
Columbia Bellocq seemed destined to follow her grandmother’s and mother’s pattern of early prostitution yet she was saved from this fate by Antithea Regardie, the grandmother of her half sister and half brother.
Antithea Regardie had a long varied career, which has been of much interest to intelligence and law enforcement agencies for the past several decades. Unfortunately the information concerning her has yet to be compiled into a complete dossier. Although she owned and ran a school of dance and several clothing stores, she seems to have been an agent of the mysterious New Orleans figure known as Marianne Soleil Levant aka Marie Laveau, who controlled much of the so-called victimless crime in New Orleans, prostitution, gambling, smuggling, marijuana trafficking. Marianne Levant hid behind the legend of the immortal voodoo queen Marie Laveau. Although most people believed that “Marie Laveau” was a succession of young women who succeeded to this position rather than one person living and controlling these operations for over a century, we believe that there was one person named Marianne Levant and she was either one of the so called Immortals or that she was more likely the recipient of some form of age retardant or youth rejuvenator. This later speculation is strongly evidenced by her close contacts with several individuals believed to be Eridaneans.
Anithea Regardie was a member of

RIFF-RAFF: Royal Regardie Bellocq a.k.a Pietro Maximoff, Cosmo McKinley b.1925
MAGENTA: Magenta Regardie Bellocq a.k.a Wanda Maximoff, Nation McKinley, Lena Kelly Spencer b.1925
Royal and Magenta Regardie Bellocq were the twin children of photographer E. J. Bellocq and Lucasta Regardie. This was Bellocq’s second marriage and the second marriage to a prostitute, the first being to child prostitute Violet. Lucasta however was not merely a prostitute but also an operative of Marianne Lavant. Since Royal and Magenta’s heritage does bear some importance on their roles in the Denton Affair, a little background should be given.
Lucasta Regardie b.1895 was the daughter of Antithea Regardie, a prostitute working at one of Marie Lavant’s high society bordellos. Regardie however was not Antithea’s birth name, this was Delagardie. Antithea was the fourth daughter born to Francis Delagardie and Lucasta Rutherford. Anithea’s older sister, Rhonda had married world famous sportsman and hunter Lord John Wentworth.
Lord John Wentworth
was a descendent of Lord Byron through his Byron’s grandson Byron Noel-King, 12th
Baron Wentworth. The marriage between Lord Wentworth and Rhonda Delagardie was
not a happy one however and despite Rhonda’s pregnancy the couple divorced
within a year, their son was named Richard
The reason for the break up of the Wentworth’s marriage appears to have been
Antithea. She seduced Lord John Wentworth and in doing so became pregnant. Not
only did Antithea break up her sister’s marriage, she also brought shame and
disgrace to her family. She was either sent or fled on her own to the
Like her mother, Lucasta Regadie would work as a prostitute and operative for Marianne Levant. It is not known if her marriage to E. J. Bellocq was part of an assignment or a true romance. She bore twins in 1925. The twins were bright and charismatic children and were quickly picked by Marianne Levant and Antithea Regardie for full operative training. They took to their training as if they were born to it, Royal had a great mechanical aptitude as well as the speed and agility of a runner combined with the grace and stamina of a dancer. In addition to having an eidetic memory and great mathematical skills Magenta was also a superb athlete and was also proficient at disguise and sleight of hand.
Royal and Magenta began an incestuous relationship in their early teens. Although it not believed to an inheritable trait, their ancestor Lord Byron had also been in an incestuous relationship with his sister. Royal and Magenta’s relationship resulted in Magenta becoming pregnant and she gave birth to a child in 1939. This child was taken from her and given to family named Barzell to raise. It was thought that if Royal and Magenta were forced to live in the real world and accept their responsibilities as agents that they would mature and grow out of their relationship. They were also needed.
It is no small
measure of their abilities that they at the tender age of 14 they were given a
crucial assignment by Marianne Levant’s superiors. Royal and Magenta were sent

In Port Charles Magenta met and seemed to fall in love with Tim Spencer. Defying her Eridanean superiors Magenta married Tim Spencer in 1946. In 1947, a son Lucas Lorenzo Spencer was born. A daughter Barbara Jean Spencer came the following year. Tim turned out to be an alcoholic and could not keep gainful employment. Magenta left the diner to her “sister” who continued Magenta’s abandoned mission.

The activities of Royal and Magenta Regardie between 1950 and 1954 are uncertain. What connection that Royal and Magenta Regardie had to businessman Clay Shaw and Assistant Superintendent of Police Guy Bannister remains unknown, although there were reports of them being in the company of these men, either singly or together.
In 1954, they were
dispatched to discover the whereabouts of their half sister
Although usually drugged to a blissed out state, Royal was able to muster his powers of concentration to work on the Baron’s great project because he found it so fascinating. He also would do anything to please his master. Royal’s scientific aptitude and abilities allowed Igescu to carry forth with his plan to artificially create a Captain. Royal also used the resources in the laboratory to create weapons to destroy the Baron although at the time he created them, he did not have the ambition or drive to use them.
As noted in the
document informally named “The Other Log of Phileas Fogg” part of Eridanean
training consists of a discipline that permits their agents to temporarily
reroute trauma and emotional responses so that they can act dispassionately and
logically in stressful or traumatic situations. The murder of their half sister
during the immanentizing of the grail ceremony shocked Royal and Magenta. The
Although Royal wounded Igescu, he did not kill him. However he did succeed in destroying the device and severely damage the artificially created Captain.

1962-1964 A child was born to Magenta after the wrap up of the Denton Affair. The child’s father was indeterminate since it could have been anyone of the male participants of the grailing ceremony. The child, named Luna was seized by Antithea Regardie, despite Magenta’s protests that it was inhuman to keep taking her children.
Under the names
Pietro and Wanda Maximoff Royal and Magenta were part of terrorist/cult
organization called The Brotherhood led by Erik Lensherr’s a.k.a. Magnus The
Magneto. It is not known how many of this organizations membership truly had
physical anomalies or some form of psionic power. It is believed that that most
of the so-called powers of the Brotherhood were the result of psionic illusions
generated by Jason Wyngarde a.k.a. Mastermind.
It is believed that the super speed powers and magic powers suddenly exhibited
by “Wanda” and Pietro were the result of Wyngarde’s machinations. It is
believed that Royal and Magenta joined the Brotherhood under orders from their
Eridanean superiors to investigate and ascertain what threat Magnus posed.
However because of their imprinting under Igescu they soon found themselves
dominated by Magnus personality and became his semi-reluctant followers. They
were extracted in 1964 and returned to
In 1965 they were
sent back to
This mission accomplished they returned to the Pietro and Wanda Maximoff identities and offered to aid in capturing Magnus the Magneto in exchange for pardons. Magneto’s Brotherhood terrorist activities had risen dramatically. CIALD was very interested in stopping the organization.
Wanda used her computational skills to provide predictive analysis about terrorist attacks.
During this time period she formed a friendship that beccame a non-physical romance with the rebuilt Cliff Steele robot.
Royal used his technical expertise and by happenstance made himself into a speedster by entering a temporal fuge state. This was based on technology found in the gold watch once owned by Kirby Winter. Royal’s device made it appear as though he was moving at superspeed, although he was actually moving at a normal speed in a temporal bubble. Depictions of him running across water or traveling to other cities, etc are gross exaggerations. Royal objected to Magenta’s relationship with Cliff Steele and ensured he was sent on most missions. Steele’s robotic body was rendered inert on a mission and rebooted with a different personality, that of the Colossus A-I, although no one knew it until Steele attempted to seize control of the world by seizing control of many of the computer systems in the world. Colossus’ programming was purged from the positronic brain but Steele’s personality had apparently been deleted by Colossus. In rebuilding Robotman, parts from the original Adam Link body were used and a back up of Adam Link’s programming was discovered secreted in a hidden tape. This programming was downloaded into the positronic memory, as part of the upgrade a copy of Brad Darrow’s visor was built into the Robotman’s body. When Cliff Steele was declared dead Magenta had a psychotic break and became delusional. She imagined that she and Steele had been married and had twin boys.
Certain that she would eventually come out of this on her own Royal humored her delusion fearing a further shock would make her even worse. However when the delusion persisted beyond his patience, he took measures to forcibly bring her to sanity and prove to her that her children were figments of her imagination. The sudden shock proved too much and she fell into a state of catatonia. Psychiatrists proved unable to help her so Royal sought help from The Magneto, thinking that perhaps his control over the electromagnetic force could get her neurons firing correctly. Magnus agreed to help for a price, that Royal and Magenta would join him.
Royal agreed to the
bargain. Magneto’s powers did restore Magenta to consciousness but the
treatment caused a radical alteration of her personality. Convinced that she
too was a mutant, she wanted to destroy humanity, by various bloodthirsty
methods. Magneto and his group succeeded in destroying a factory located in
Magenta’s comatose body was stolen from it’s hospital room. It was not certain if Magenta had been kidnapped to be wrung of information or some other purpose. She had been kidnapped by the man calling himself General Immortus.
General Immortus did indeed wish to wring as many secrets from her as he could but he also intended to use her as a living source of youth. Some quirk of the Nine’s elixir, once it had been introduced into a body, prevented many other rejuvenation or age retardant treatments from working in that body which is one of the reasons why people attempting to duplicate or substitute the elixir for another treatment failed. Exiled from the Nine and denied the elixir, General Immortus had grown old and enfeebled. He had desperately sought and found a dozens age extension formulas but to no avail. He discovered that what ever properties that made the Eridanean and Capellean life extension treatments effective worked on his body, for about a month. After this he needed a fresh infusion from a transfusion. Magenta was his blood type and he drained her blood, keeping just enough blood in her system to keep her alive. Eventually she as rescued by a team consisting of Royal, Henry and Janet Pym, Green Arrow and one of the Iron Men.
recovered from both her mental breakdown and imprisonment quite well. Throwing
herself into her work, she was eventually granted a promotion and led a strike
team, the primary purpose of which was pre-emptive strikes at possible
terrorist organizations. It was while leading this team that Magenta carried
out the operation known as the Day of M. Using the code words, “No more
mutants” she enacted the Sentinel system. The self propelled, A-I guided Iron
Men suits sought out and destroyed several centers of “Mutant” activity
In the aftermath of the incident Magenta disappeared.
Royal had broken off his relationship shortly after her rescue from General Immortus. He attempted to form a relationship with his daughter Luna, but her foster parents refused to let him see her. Influenced by the rhetoric of Odd John and the Magneto but not believing that they were homo superior, he joined a cult worshipping the principle of Human Evolution and became a Knight of the High Evolutionary. After the Day of M his name became linked to his sister and he was shunned and hunted. He stole his daughter from her foster parents and disappeared.
CONRAD EDWARD BYRDIE b.1934 Conrad Edward Byrdie had the onstage persona
of a poor country boy born in the
After finishing his first opera, based on the The Corsair by Lord Byron, he showed it to a musical agent. The agent like Byrd’s music but hated his lyrics. He convinced Byrd that if he wanted to write the music he liked, he would have to make a boatload of money first. He thought Byrd had the looks, singing voice, charisma and musical talent to be a star, his image and his song writing needed help. Conrad Byrd the wealthy, eastern preppie was transformed into Conrad Byrdie the poor Midwestern sharecropper. He worked with a hungry young songwriter named Albert Peterson to transform his lyrical pieces into pop songs.
Conrad Byrdie became an overnight sensation and Conrad had a whole new world opened up to him. This was a world of fast cars, fast cash and fast living. Women and girls threw themselves at him and the Byronic heritage kicked into full gear. Conrad was unable to resist the charms of his fans. Had he not been drafted it is likely that he would have crashed and burned from his excesses in drink or debauchery. When he failed to get his service deferred, he agreed to make his exit dramatic.

As Conrad became another of the Baron’s entourage of sex toys he lost all sense of his self, living only for the numbing joy of the drugs and the orgasmic rush of lust.
Baron Igescu had
sensed Conrad Byrd’s Byronic heritage and hoped to turn Byrd into a Captain,
yet despite all of Baron’s efforts Byrd simply did not have enough of the
innate ability to become a Captain. As Baron Igescu would put it, Conrad had no
muscle. Even as low powered as it was however the Baron realized that as a
Byronic descendent Byrd’s seed and blood still contained some power that could
be used to help power up his artificially created Captain, the being named
Raki. According to eyewitness reports during the Empowerment rite, As Raki and

Jack Darrow became Captain in the Army Air Service and was shot down while testing a gun specifically designed to disable dirigibles. His pilot was killed and he was taken prisoner, after a brutal interrogation failed to discern any information, the German High Command attempted finesse. He was interrogated by Baronesse Wanda von Brannburg, a former private investigator who had joined the Intelligence services when war broke out. Using her feminine wiles on Darrow, she soon established a rapport. However he was quite a challenge, even to her skills of deduction and eliciting information. Determined to win him over she even attempted to seduce him. Although initially angered at his refusal she soon realized that her planned seduction had not been entirely a ploy. The rapport became an actual romance. She was spared the decision of whether to follow her heart or her duty when armistice was reached during Darrow’s captivity. They consummated their love on Armistice Day and were married the day after. Like many other POW’s Darrow was just released and told to find his way back to the Army. Before reporting in Jack and Wanda decide to take a short honeymoon.
While on their
honeymoon they witness a strange death. A man sitting in a beer garden suddenly
had his head enveloped in a small cloud of poison gas. They were told that this
is the second such death that occurred in their village. After some
investigation they discovered that there have been a series of such deaths
since the Armistice. Most of the people who died had strong political belief.
They were either staunch supporters of the Imperial government, supporters of
the nascent Republic or Socialists. Working together, Jack and Wanda solved the
series of murders. The killer was a former soldier who had embraced the
political philosophies of Anarchy and Nihilism. He wished to create panic and

Julia Darrow returned to her home town and raised her Bradley. Brad had a typical Midwestern upbringing but knew nothing about his father’s family. However he was a brilliant student, which brought him to the attention of Dr. Everett Scott, who wanted to recruit him for his Watcher’s organization. Brad’s involvement in the Denton Affair was either pure coincidence or the manifestation of synchronicity.
The Denton Affair brought Brad Darrow to the attention of Bob Sampson, who was at that time an associate professor of Physics at Cornell and a member of Professor Charles Javier’s think tank. Sampson had returned to Earth in his father’s spaceship in late 1949. At first he used the name Grayson, since he was uncertain if his father had broken any laws by leaving the Earth in a time of war. Using advanced technology he fought crime and was dubbed The Marvel Boy by the press. However he quickly tired of the notoriety, especially when his Grayson identity was exposed, and gave up his crime fighting activities.
When Charles Javier
formed his think tank in 1955, he asked Bob Sampson to join. He also taught at
Javier’s school for Exceptional Children. Learning the whereabouts of Brad
Darrow, Bob Sampson arranged for Brad to come to
Bob became a sort of a big brother to Brad and they became known as the Marvel Boys. They were involved, peripherally, with the rescue of President Eisenhower. When Professor Javier’s think tank became part of the OTLAS, Brad and Bob worked in both sections, taking part in many of James Chan’s operations. However when Chan was promoted out of OTLAS, Brad and Bob were no longer asked to take part in missions. There was great friction between Caulder and them. They had strenuously objected to imprinting the personality of Cliff Steele onto Adam Link’s positronic neural net. They believed this operation would destroy any chance of reviving Link and could kill Steele. When OTLAS was closed in 1961, Brad and Bob worked exclusively with Charles Javier and his School For Exceptional Children.
Brad Darrow was an instructor at Professor Javier’s School for Exceptional Children. He was also the team leader of the School’s Community Outreach program. Essentially this did various acts of community service as well as use their skills and “powers” to thwart the designs and actions of evil “mutants” as led by The Brotherhood, Fatal Five, Factor Three. Although Brad was not a mutant, he was believed to be one. Brad used the modified visor from the Denton Affair for in his community service. A rumor was started that he had to wear the glasses in order to keep his mutant eyes from releasing destructive rays. This story of course hearkened back to Diego Javier, who had stolen the visor and used it in acts of crime and terrorism.
While an instructor at the school Brad fell in love with the school’s premiere student, Jean Grey. She knew his feelings, reciprocated them and pursued him. However he refused to enter into an inappropriate relationship with her. Once she graduated from college however, they became romantically involved.
This romance only lasted a couple of years because while attempting to stop a nuclear powered CIALD satellite from crashing into the Earth, Jean had to exert her powers to their utmost. This exertion forced her to Ascend and she became a being of pure energy, an Omni. Yet she was so emotionally tied to Brad Darrow that she re-created her human body and attempted to live as she had before. Rather than attempting to harness her new powers she tried to suppress them. However the manifestation of her powers activated the M’krann crystal and brought Mongo out of phase. D’Ken the Emperor of the Shiar Empire on Mongo, used the crystal to make himself the planetary emperor and declared himself Ming III. Lilandra, his sister fled with the crystal to Earth. The crystal led her to Jean Grey. D’ken forcibly allied himself with the Z’nox and the entity known as Brainiac. Their combined forced invaded the Earth to recover the crystal. D’Ken took possession of the crystal and of Jean Grey. In order to save Brad she overcame her self imposed psionic restraints and used her full powers to remove the invasion force, undo the effects of the invasion and return Mongo to its phased state. Although she was successful the effort drove her mad and she lost all sense of her self becoming an amnesiac. Members of the Hellfire Club found her and realized what she was. They convinced her that she was the Black Queen of their organization and manipulated her into committing criminal acts as well as acts of violence and depravity.
Jean was caught up in the internal dissent of the Hellfire Club and what was supposed to be a carefully constructed psychodrama to turn her into their instrument only served to give her a psychotic break and her Omni powers manifested overwhelming her. Her careless use of her powers nearly caused the sun to go nova and caused planetary disalignment by removing Mongo’s phasing. Realizing that her powers were too much for her to handle, she undid the effects of her madness and used her power to commit suicide.
Brad Darrow was devastated by Jean’s death. Eventually he left the school and tried his hand at scientific research but remained psychologically unsuited for this. He then took a job with his aunt’s charter flight service. During the course of this work he met a woman named Madelyn Prior was a physical doppelganger for Jean Grey. In an odd bit of fate she had survived a plane crash on the same day the Jean had died. Brad and Madelyn married and had one son, Nathanial.
Brad returned to Dr.
Javier’s school to help with a Xenomorph
outbreak. About this time the Anti-mutant hysteria, drummed up by Senator Kelly
swept through the
Charles Javier was also severely beaten and left for dead. Embittered by his failure to influence humans and mutants to live together in piece, Charles took up Lilandra on her offer and traveled to Mongo to become her consort.
After Madelyn’s death, Jean Grey returned to Brad Darrow’s life. She revealed that she had been Madelyn or rather that Madelyn had been a part of her. When she had attempted to commit suicide, several of the Omni had interfered and prevented her suicide. They had undone her devastating effects on the solar system and placed her in a state stasis while they taught her how to understand and use her powers. Yet so great was her desire to be with Brad that she had created a doppelganger that unconsciously shared her experience with the comatose Jean. When Madelyn had died all of her memories had returned to Jean. Brad’s grief had awakened Jean from her comatose state.
When Javier departed
for Mongo, Brad Darrow and Jean Grey became the heads of the
JANET WEISS 1936-
Janet Weiss was born in 1936 at the Denton Memorial hospital. She was the daughter of Emily and Harry Weiss. Emily was picture of a prim and proper housewife and Harry was an ordinary working man. Janet attended college but her goal was to find a nice boy with a good future so she could become a happy homemaker like her mother.

ROCKY HORROR a.k.a. Raki, Adam Link, Robotman, Human Robot, Robotman and the Vision. Over the course of his millennia trapped on the Earth Baron Igescu had seen many attempts to germinate Captain seeds in various descendents of Lord Byron fail. He had come to believe that the terrestrials were not neurologically evolved enough to channel the energies necessary to Empower a Captain and Immanentize a Grail. Also when a Captain was resurrected, they were almost immediately killed. He believed that he had found the solution to this problem that had plagued the Tocs and Ogs for a thousand years. Igescu learned that the wrecked body of Robotman a vigilante with robotic body and human brain had been found in one of the warehouse owned by one of Igescu’s associates. Igescu believed that a brain powerful enough to motivate a robotic body might be able to Immanentize a grail.
According to CIALD files of the World War II’s ALSTR (Auxiliary Logistical and Special Tactical Response)squadron Robotman was originally a scientist named Robert Crane who built and designed a humanoid robot in 1941. The robot was nearly completed when Crane’s laboratory was robbed for drugs, money and valuables. Crane and his laboratory assistant fought the criminals and Crane was terminally shot. Before he could expire his assistant Charles Grayson removed Crane’s brain and placed inside the robot head. Crane survived the operation but Grayson was charged with Crane’s murder. Once Crane was fully functional, he set out to bring the gunmen to justice for his murder and clear Grayson. He did this by successfully disguising himself as a man. Because legally Robert Crane was dead, Crane used the name Paul Dennis. He became a vigilante known as Robotman and was inducted into ALSTR in 1942. He disappeared in 1953.
Deeper investigation reveals that the individual who called himself Paul Dennis a.k.a. Robotman did not in fact possess the brain of Dr. Robert Crane, Crane had been truly murdered. Crane had not invented a robot equipped with devices capable of sustaining a disembodied brain. Paul Dennis or as he was more commonly known, Robotman did not have a human brain but rather a Positronic one. He was the mechanical man known as Adam Link, created by Professor Charles Link in 1934.
For a brief period
of five years Adam Link was a minor celebrity. His creator had given him the
knowledge to create others like him and Adam created a companion robot with a
female personality named Eve. The metallic Adam and Eve had a series of
adventures that culminated with them saving the Earth from an invasion of
extraterrestrials. This attempted invasion by the Korlons has remained strictly
classified. Even though he was regarded as a hero by the
Adam had also calculated that another global war was inevitable. He did not wish to be put into the position whereby he could be compelled to create other sentient robots to be used as soldiers. Adam and Eve had once been remotely controlled by an unscrupulous scientist named Hillory, who caused them to commit crimes. Rather than have the United States or any other national government use this process to force them to manufacture soldier robots, Eve and Adam decided to leave the Earth for the moon, believing that by the time mankind had the technology to reach the moon it would also be mature enough to accept them as persons rather than machines.
Adam and Eve Link traveled
to the moon in late 1939 and spent approximately one year in peaceful retreat
before the turmoil on Earth intruded upon their lives. A rocket landed on the
moon not too far from where they had landed. The rocket had the Iron Cross and
a Swastika painted upon it. An energy
dome almost exactly like the ones that the Korlons had created on
Adam quickly reduced that the Nazi’s had captured a Korlon scouting party and had enslaved them, forcing them to divulge parts of their technology to create a moon rocket. The Korlon must have had a supply depot on the moon, as part of a fall back plan in case their invasion was forced to retreat. The Links agreed that they could not allow the Nazi’s to have access to the Korlon technology.
Details of what
transpired on the moon are non-existent. Adam Link’s brain was damaged and his
memories were lost. All he remembers is that they assaulted the base and that
Eve was destroyed as the base exploded. Parts of what could have been a very
damaged rocket were recovered in the
In the early fall of 1941, Adam Link guided by residual programming found his way to the laboratory of robotics expert Dr. Robert Crane, crawling like a broken toy. Crane was a protégé of Dr. Charles Link. With Link’s aid, Crane began to build a replacement body for Link. Unfortunately the secret of building a positronic brain was among the information lost by Link. The return of Link to Earth was kept secret. Dr. Crane had completed Adam Link’s new body and made certain that it was functioning correctly. Before he could put Adam’s brain into the new body he and Grayson found themselves at gunpoint by would be robbers. Crane and Grayson fought them but Crane was killed. His dying wish was for Grayson to complete the transfer immediately before anyone else tried to steal the robot. Purportedly the thieves were after drugs, money and scientific equipment but they were in fact specifically there for the robot.
According to public records Charles Grayson was arrested for the murder of Robert Crane and it took the detective abilities of Robotman to clear his name. What is not on the public records is that Grayson was arrested when it was fully known that he was not the culprit. His arrest was leverage, a means of getting him to turn over the robot to the authorities. However when Robotman tracked down the thieves and publicly exonerated Grayson, the Office of Strategic Services had to free him, although they had to extract a promise from him that he would support the story that the men who broke into the laboratory and killed Crane were common gangsters.
Although the “gangsters” claimed to be working under orders of the local Mafia and despite being immigrant Italians they were in fact unconnected to the Mafia. These men were in fact paid agents of the Italian Fascist government who also denied any ties with them. It was later learned that Mussolini thought that if he could make robots such as this one, he would no longer have to play second fiddle to Hitler. When the plan backfired however, Mussolini denied any complicity.
Part of the reason that the United States Government allowed Grayson his freedom, that is they did not draft him and force him to create an army of robots for them was because he was also forced to reveal that the Robot was one large prosthesis and not a actual robot with a mechanical brain. The robot was a mobile life support system for the disembodied brain of Robert Crane. Crane had not reached the point of creating an artificial brain as of yet but promised to keep working on it for the government. Crane took the name Paul Dennis rather than subject his friends and relatives to the horror of a living brain trapped in a mechanical body. Although robotic bodies like this could have helped the war effort, the transfer of Crane’s brain into the device could not be replicated, the schematics had been destroyed in the fight between the gangster and Crane. The transfer process also had the unfortunate side effect of causing memory loss in Crane which is another of the reasons he wished for his family and friends to think he was dead. To thoroughly examine the robot body would be to cause Crane’s death, so until Crane or Paul Dennis died, the mysteries of Robotman would have to remain just that.
As Robotman Paul Dennis was an important part of the war effort of WWII both home and abroad. He also had a relatively long career as a crime fighting vigilante from 1941 to 1953.
In early 1953, Robotman raided what he believed was a factory making illicit drugs, which the police had refused to raid. This factory was owned by Baron Igescu and manufactured the aphrodisiac and other drugs used by the Ogs. Learning what had attacked his factory, Baron Igescu was fascinated by the possibilities that a robot body presented, especially when it was supposed to be powered by a living brain. He contacted Robotman and told him that he had a proposition that would prove mutually advantageous. The Baron informed him that he had discovered how to create a synthetic skin but had problems growing it beyond small patches. Igescu told Paul Dennis if they combined their knowledge they would not only be able to benefit all of mankind but also give Robotman a body of flesh that would cover his metal body, that this outer body would look and feel like a human body, including having sensation. <In essence what Igescu seems to have described is essentially how a T-800 infiltrator terminator cyborg looks and functions, such as the ones destroyed in 1983 and 1990>
As part of his demonstration, Baron Igescu needed to gain momentary control of Robotman’s body. Having obtained a background check on Igescu as a well-regarded international businessman, Adam Link trusted Igescu and allowed him this momentary control. Igenscu then seized control of Link’s body and refused to give it up.
Baron Igescu did indeed plan to wrap Adam Link’s body in flesh but not by creating artificial flesh but rather by having one of his fellow Ogs grow onto the body and form a symbiotic relationship. As discussed in the Toc and Og section of this report, the Tocs and Ogs transform back into energy forms upon the deaths of their physical forms. They regain their physical forms very slowly over a long period of time by feeding on the orgone energy released by human beings. From invisible energy they become pale luminescent energy then to a more palpable ectoplasmic state before reaching full physicality. As they gain form they can shape mold their flesh into a variety of physical forms. Herald Childe reported three very unusual cases, a shapeshifter whose main form took that of a hairy monkey, a humanoid form that discharged sexual energy and sexual pleasure like an electric eel does electricity and the last was the symbiotic union of a man and a woman. They had wanted to share a single body but their design had been flawed as the male portion had emerged from the union as little more than a parasitic organ living in the woman’s womb.
However flawed the design was it gave Baron Igescu food for thought, that a virtually indestructible body for a Captain could be constructed. When he learned of this mechanical body powered by a living brain, he also thought that this might be a way to artificially create a new Captain, that the Og might be able to form a symbiosis with the brain and boost it own brain activity. Previous attempts to create symbiosis with human beings had failed because humans could not remain still long enough for the Og or Toc body to form about them and even when it had been attempted with humans in comas, the human body had rejected the symbiotic flesh as soon as it began to attach it self. Ignesuc reasoned that the living brain inside the mechanical man would not have this problem since it’s rejection problem had obviously been solved otherwise the life support system would not have supported it.
With the help of Royal Regardie (Riff Raff) Baron Igescu built a modified orgone accumulator that channeled the energy created by acts of sex or violence enacted his mansion. This mansion was also near a ley line and an electromagnetic anomaly, which Igescu thought might be a weak spot between dimensions and as such it aided in gathering energy that accelerated the process of resurrecting the Og. Baron Igescu was not certain if the process would work or how well it would work, so he did not want to risk resurrecting a Captain. He chose someone he considered expendable and someone who he could control and manipulate if the process did succeed. The Og Raki was a small time criminal that had become involved in Igescu’s terrorist organization and had been sentenced to the Phantom Zone like the rest of the Ogs. In the few hundred of years he existed on Earth in a physical form, he spent most of it living in the South Pacific where he was a surfer. During this period surfing was a sacred sport among the Polynesian people, and the most proficient surfers were from the aristocratic and warrior classes. When he was regenerated his one wish was to be reborn as a surfer. Since Raki was a bit unimaginative he had to depend on the aid of Baron Igescu and the others who donated their energy toward his resurrection for his shape. AS a result his physical shape took on that of a tanned, blond Adonis, a modern day depiction of a surfer.
The head of Robotman had been placed onto a new robotic body, sculpted more like a human male body to give the regenerated flesh of Raki a foundation. Baron Igescu hoped that the flesh and metal would combine giving the human flesh the durability and strength of metal. How well their plan would have worked is unknown because there was a serious flaw in Baron Ignesuc’s design, this being the lack of a living brain for Raki to symbiotically become attached. Baron Igescu had not disturbed Robotman’s head too much for fear of damaging the living brain and so he never realized that the brain inside was mechanical rather than biological. A sort of symbiosis was achieved between Raki’s consciousness and the positronic brain on an electromagnetic level however it was not a true symbiosis in that the energies never truly meshed but reacted negatively upon one another and caused lasting harm to the energy form of Raki and to the positronic matrix of Adam Link. The manifestation of the failed symbiosis was in the personality of Raki when he was resurrected, he was a tabula rasa without the memories of either Raki or Robotman. He was very much like a child in behavior and thought. Until Raki had been empowered the Baron would not know if the experiment was a success.
The Empowerment ceremony was a success and Raki was able to rebuild the grail during the grailing ceremony demonstrating to Igescu that he had at least discovered a means to artificially create a Captain (footnote—a later experiment with another living brain however did not fare as well-- now find one…)
As part of his mission, once his mind had cleared Royal Regardie destroyed the grail with his laser visor and also destroyed the cyborg symbiote known as Raki. As Inescu had hoped the flesh of Raki had gained a durability and strength from the metal. The flesh of Raki had blackened and melted off of the metallic body of Robotman where it pooled on the tiles.
During the mob panic
from the orgiastic in the wake of the Royal Regardie’s shooting of the grail
and Raki and his subsequent attempts to shoot Igescu no one noticed the
blackened puddle of flesh slither across the floor like a mobile pool of oil.

When sportsman Cliff Steele was severely injured during an automobile race Dr. Niles Caulder tried a radical treatment to save Steele’s life. Steele’s body was so badly burned and had so many broken bones that Steele was dying of shock. Adam Link had invented a device that had replicated the mind of his friend Kay Temple into the mind of another robot. This robot became his wife Eve. Caulder used this device to replicate the mind of Cliff Steele onto the blank Positronic brain formerly occupied by the mind of Adam Link. Caulder stated that he believed that once the consciousness of Steele had left his battered and broken body Caulder would be able to put Steele’s body into a drug induced coma and treat it. After the body was cured he would be able to return Steele’s consciousness back into his body.
Unfortunately this did not go as planned. Steele’s body slipped further into shock and passed away. Even if Steele’s body had survived, it would not have been possible to transfer Steele’s mind back out of the Positronic brain anyway since the device only replicated the mind it did not actually transfer it. It is believed that Caulder knew this but did not give Steele accurate information so that he would undergo the procedure.
Cliff Steele became
a member of Caulder’s LS section under the codename of Robotman and would
remain so until Caulder and his team were destroyed in 1968. The upper torso of
Robotman was discovered still functioning after having been washed ashore near
Because of Caulder’s autocratic and often unauthorized use of the LS section it had been placed more directly under United Nations Security Council control and was headed by Arani Jeejeeboy, a native of India. a.k.a. Celesius.
Officially the LS section was disbanded after the losing half of their number in the covert operation known as THE SECRET WAR in which various covert organizations from around the world successfully defeated a joint Z’nox and Mongovian invasion.
Cliff Steele or Robotman’s activities with the VNGER from 1972 to 1978 are documented and available in the CIALD archives on this section of the Operations Directorate. However his activities with Sector 13 of the X Branch during this period can only be accessed by agents with Omega Omega security clearance.
It would be remiss if this section of the report on the being called Rocky Horror were to exclude that further activities of the Og called Raki who had been symbiotically bonded to the robot body and Positronic brain of Adam Link.
The nature of this symbiosis had caused fundamental changes in the physique and physical nature of this particular Og so that it became virtually mindless and yet virtually indestructible. The severe burning by the laser while it had been filled with orgone energies had also resulted in giving it some unusual properties. The distinguishing musculature, hair and facial features had all been burnt away by the laser leaving only a melted pool of blackened flesh yet the remaining flesh was mobile if virtually mindless having depended on Link’s brain. Although the flesh that remained had been permanently seared black and could not regenerate into a more human appearance, the heat hed in a sense forged the flesh had also become extremely durable and stronger than human flesh. The skin also retained its ability to accumulate and generate electromagnetic radiation derived from natural electrochemical sources or orgone energy.
The Og in the form of a blackened skin retained one imperative from its resurrection that it needed to join with another. Yet not just any person would do, it needed to find a suitable host. It traveled slowly across the country until it found one.
In early 1959, a
test pilot named Larry Trainor crashed in his plane in the
After his accident Trainor was found miraculously alive but almost burnt beyond recognition. Although Trainor should have died from shock due to pain and the extensive damage to his skin and internal organs the symbiote prevented Trainor’s death. The symbiote also began a long process of healing Trainor’s deep burns. As the energy that the symbiote used to sustain itself and Trainor began to deplete, the symbiote left Trainor’s body to find sustenance. It soon became apparent that the black skin symbiote had the ability of controlled flight. It was later learned that this was due to Trainor’s influence. It was only when bonded to Trainor and later to Vostok that symbiote could fly. Although the black skin symbiote was malleable within the limitations of its mass and could extend or contract its matter it did not have a consciousness to direct these actions. Trainor was a pilot and he unconsciously directed the black skin symbiote to fly and it did stretching its matter so that it resembled a human shaped black kite while it floated on the air currents and flapped like a bird.
It is believed that Trainor was also responsible for the form of sustenance that the symbiote used to regain its energy. To Trainor’s mind the most powerful source of energy was atomic energy and so the black skin symbiote flew to the atomic bomb test sites and absorbed what energy it could. An unfortunate side effect of using atomic energy for their source of energy meant that Trainor and the black skin gave off radiation that was hazardous to anyone near Trainor. Trainor’s treatment for the burns to his body was to be wrapped up in specially treated bandages. Under the direction of Dr. Niles Caulder, Trainor’s body wrap also consisted of specially treated bandages that would shield everyone around him from the radiation he gave off. He resembled a mummy.
After a few months as his body began to heal Trainor came out of his coma and discovered the symbiote relationship that he had with the Negative Man. Trainor used his ability to have the symbiote leave his body and to direct it when he did to used it as a remote controlled body. At first Trainor could not have the symbiote gone from his body for very long before beginning to suffer shock trauma. At first this was because Trainor’s body was still healing from the deep burn wounds and needed the symbiote to sustain him. However as Trainor continued to heal the time that the symbiote could be gone increased.
Larry Trainor and his symbiote became members of Niles Caulder’s operations team of the LS section. As fate would have it, the symbiote’s previous host Adam Link, was also part of the team, although under the new persona of Cliff Steele.
A few years later
during the explosion that destroyed Caulder’s LS team, the symbiote
automatically shielded Trainor’s body and took up the brunt of the blast. They
became separated. Trainor was badly hurt but was found alive and taken to a
Trainor left the hospital and went on a quest to discover if Niles Caulder was alive. He adopted the name Joshua Clay during this period.
Six months after the
explosion that killed the LS section a member of the Soviet Air Force chose to
defect to the
Vostok had crashed several hundred miles away from the island where the LS section had been destroyed but she was found by the black skin symbiote and bonded to her. Like Trainor she met the unknown criteria by which the symbiote chose its host.
It seems that the symbiote while loses most of its consciousness when without a host does have the ability to carry over certain behaviors and mannerisms from host to host. In addition to demonstrating to Vostok that the symbiote could fly and leave Vostok’s body for a short time, the symbiote also remembered how to obtain energy. The symbiote obtained atomic energy from the nuclear missiles that were on the jet that Vostok had commandeered. Valentia Vostok was not as critically injured as Trainor had been when he had first been bonded with the symbiote but because of the radiation that the symbiote absorbed she suffered from radiation poisoning that the symbiote then had to cure.
To be watched and to prove her loyalty Vostok was remanded to the custody of the LS section under Arani Caulder. She became romantically involved with the team physician Joshua Clay. Joshua Clay and the symbiote had a strong antipathy towards one another. During the Znox-Mongovian invasion Vostok and the symbiote become separated. Vostok nearly died from shock but survives.
The symbiote found another host in Peter Parker, the Spider, although how exactly the two became bonded is unknown. It is believed that the symbiote somehow found its way to Parker’s laboratory and rested in a beaker. He was trying to recreate a new form of his webbing and upon finding the symbiote believed that was the result of his experiment. Upon touching the symbiote they bonded. During this time Parker was suffering grief and believing that his wife had been killed by the Green Goblin. The symbiote magnified his rage and bloodlust, while also giving him increased strength and protection. After a while Parker realized that the symbiote was making him lose control. With the help of Reid Roberts Parker rid himself of the symbiote. It escaped from Roberts laboratory and found another host in mentally unbalanced reporter Edward Brock.
After Brock’s death the symbiote bonded with a serial killer named Cletus Cassiday. When Cassiday was killed by Scorpia, several members of the Scorpia volunteered to become bonded with the symbiote. Many died before one was successfully paired with the symbiont. The Scorpia member, a Mac Gargan is still paired with the symbiont.

In the aftermath of the Denton Affair the CIA and FBI scrutinized the activities of the small town college professor named Scott but who spoke with a pronounced German accent. At first they believed that Dr. Merkwuerdigichliebe had fled into hiding and assumed the name of Dr. Everett Scott. However under questioning Scott revealed that back in 1946 Von Schott had been mistaken for Merkwuerdigichliebe and offered parole and employment. He had taken it. Once Merkwuerdigichliebe fell from favor he resumed his true name of Eberhard Von Schott and anglicized it to Everett Scott.
As Dr. Everett Scott began a loose organization concerned with the investigation of unidentified flying objects and possible alien visitations. While posing as Dr. Merkwuerdigichliebe he became aware of the existence of the Hive and the organization known as Majestic 12. However he believed that Majestic 12 had become infiltrated by the Hive and had in fact engineered his downfall. It was through his loose confederation of associates that Dr. Scott compiled a list of incidents. Confiscated and examined after his arrest, these incidents were later discovered to have detailed some previously unknown operations of the Hive, The Invaders, Eridaneans/Capelleans and Tocs/Ogs.

(Note for comprehensive, detailed analysis of the organizations named below, refer to complete dossiers catalogued under SECRET SOCIETIES AND ORGANIZATIONS)
The Eridaneans and Capelleans are members of two competing secret societies.
They each consider the other society to be evil incarnate. The goals of both
societies are to end disease, war, famine and poverty on Earth. Their goals
cannot be achieved however until the total eradication of their rival. There is
some evidence to suggest that the Eridaneans and Capelleans are humanoid
extraterrestrials from competing interstellar civilizations who having crash
landed on Earth have continued their war using humans as proxies. The date of
this crash is disputed. There are some written accounts and oral traditions
that place the Eridanean and Capelleans as having arrived on Earth in the
1600’s. Yet there are also written accounts and oral traditions that date this
arrival as more than a thousand years ago. As noted previously, the Eridaneans
and Capelleans supposedly had a elixir or agent that extended human life to a
thousand years or more, yet the last survivor of the Capellean and Eridanean
crews died of old age in 1873, giving the earlier landing date some credence.
Although the original crews died out by 1873, there was an extensive, world
wide organization made up of Terran human adoptees. These adoptees had received
the life extension treatment and would be still viable and active today. It is
believed that the adopted Eridaneans and Capelleans have continued their sub
The Eridanean/Capellean involvement seems to have purely on the Eridanean side as represented by Columbia Bellocq, Royal Regardie and Magenta Regardie. They were either true Eridanean adoptees or simply agents of Lavant’s Eridanean organization. Their purpose was to observe the Ogs, especially their erstwhile leader, Baron Igescu to ensure that he did not succeed in recreating their “grail” so that the Tocs or Ogs would not be able to increase their numbers on Earth.
TOCS/OGS: Forrest J. Ackerman and Herald Childe are the only sources for the extant information on the background of the Tocs and Ogs. According to their sworn testimony they heard the oral histories of Toc and Ogs.
The Tocs originated on the fourth planet of a solar system in the Andromeda galaxy, the Ogs originated on the fifth planet. Both the Tocs and Ogs were creatures who passed between states of matter and energy. They could design the shapes that they took in these various states. Being unique creatures they also discovered a unique manner of space travel. They traveled from one place to another through the use of a device made of synthetic metal formed in the shape of chalice or goblet. This shape was needed because it was the only shape that could gather and focus the mental energies of a Mover or a Captain. These unique individuals were the only ones able to utilize the grails. The two races discovered space travel at the same time and almost immediately warred, nearly wiping one another out. In the course of their exploration of space about a thousand Tocs followed by a thousand Ogs had come to Earth. Once on Earth they had warred and in doing so destroyed their grails and killed their Captains, effectively stranding them on Earth. They had landed on earth ten thousand years before. The numbers of the Tocs and Ogs had been reduced to about 100 each by 1800. When a Toc or Og died, they really were transformed from matter to energy and could regain physical form again by obtaining enough energy, siphoned from human beings emotional energy, the Tocs fed best off of sex and the Ogs best from violence.
they needed both a Captain and a Grail to escape fro earth, the Tocs and Ogs
had came up with a plan to create a lineage of Captains by creating a human
hybrid. A Captain that had recently been resurrected seduced a human woman, at
the same time all of the living Tocs and Ogs procreated and projected their
mental energies at the Captain and his human lover. The result of this union
was George Gordon, Lord Byron. His descendents bore the seed of a Captain in
them. Over the next century and a half the Tocs and Ogs would try to recreate
the circumstances where a Captain and a Grail would be together but because of
their eternal struggle they were unable to achieve this goal until 1968. In

Like the inhabitants of BIG BLUE’s home planet, the scientists of the homeworlds of the Capelleans and Eridaneans had also discovered a way of transporting items in and out of the other dimensional space called the Phantom or Negative Zone. Although various there are conflicting theories about what the Phantom Zone is, most accounts seem to agrees that it is a nullspace in the membrane or skin between dimensions and so it touches upon all dimensions but it is apart from them.
Like the ruling council of Krypton, the governments of Capella and Eridani exiled criminals in the Phantom Zone. The Kryptonians only used the Zone as a last resort for their most unrepentant and heinous criminals but the Capelleans and Eridani used it on a regular basis and quite often without any chance of parole, that is to be retrieved back into the physical universe.
It is believed that the Tocs and Ogs are Capellean and Eridanean prisoners that had been exiled into the Phantom Zone. It is known that even a relatively short time in the Phantom Zone of a hundred years or so has a debilitating effect on the mind of the prisoner yet very little physiological effect. Yet there has never been a study on the long term physiological effect of millennia of imprisonment in the zone. It is believed that the Toc and Ogs are among those imprisoned in the Zone for the longest time and their abilities to shift, albeit with great effort and time, between energy and matter are part of the long term effects of Zone imprisonment.
The story about them coming from the Andromeda galaxy was told to Forrest J. Ackerman, a long time aficionado and collector of science fiction and fantasy. The woman who told him this tale was also familiar with science fiction and cribbed this story from bits of other science fiction works. The bit of energy beings from the Andromeda galaxy seems to have been lifted from E. E. Smith’s Lensman series.
The Tocs and Ogs were released from the Phantom Zone by a Capellean scientist shortly after the Capelleans and Eridaneans had been marooned on Earth. His motives are unknown but he seemed to believe that by releasing these prisoners he would have an instant army of followers. However when the Tocs and Ogs manifested in the physical world they immediately began fighting among one another, destroying the scientist’s Phantom Zone projector. The Tocs and Ogs discovered when they were killed they were converted back into energy forms but they did not return the Phantom Zone but were kept in this dimension, imprisoned by Earth’s magnetic field. They also discovered that their period in the Phantom Zone had altered them to the extent that they could to an extent control how they physically manifested when they became corporeal. For example Igescu could morph into both a humanoid shape or bat shape, others shared characteristics both human and animal. Yet it was not merely confined to humanoid or animal shapes, A female and a male Toc combined into a bizarre symbiotic creature that was outwardly female but actually was a living jigsaw puzzle with the male Toc living inside her. Another had his genitals transformed into an organ that generated energy as well as fluid.
The real story behind the Captains and grails seems to be that there were a few individuals among these Phantom Zone prisoners who gained the ability to navigate through the bizarre energies of the Zone and to mentally guide and carry other prisoners. They were called Captains or Movers.
The Grail was a necessary foci for the Captains to channel the energies of his passengers in order to resurrect dead Tocs or Ogs, to break open a portal into Phantom Zone move all the existing Tocs and Ogs into it. The form that the grail took and the ceremonies to Empower the Captains and Immanentize the Grail seem to be a combination of ancient Capellean and Eridanean rituals and terrestrial innovations. It is not certain why the Tocs and Ogs were so determined to return the hellishness of the Phantom Zone, possibly they felt imprisoned on Earth and found their physical forms the equivalent of being blind, deaf and dumb compared to their forms in the Phantom Zone. It is also possible after a few centuries of life on Earth they came to falsely remember their time in the Zone as one of idyllic paradise.
THE NINE: This section of the report is based on interviews with former members of the organization that is termed The Nine. The Nine refers to the ruling body of the organization which has Nine members of international origin. The Members of The Nine who are not in the ruling echelon are known as Servants of the Nine. Until late 1969, The ruling body of The Nine consisted of “Immortals” of various ages and from various time periods. The eldest were at least 30,000 years old. These were Anana and XauXaz. Close to their age but somewhat younger was Iwaldi. Their extreme longevity came from imbibing a pharmaceutical they called The Elixir. The Elixir is not a rejuvenation formula, it merely slows down the aging process to an approximate ratio of one year per 300 years. The formula for the Elixir was known only by the Nine and efforts to replicate it have repeatedly failed. It is believed that the active ingredient comes from an extinct plant of which, only the Nine possess extant samples.
The Nine are Immortals only in the sense of their great longevity. Although the Elixir does confer upon them some increased tissue regenerative abilities, they remain susceptible to otherwise mortal wounds.
SUBJECT: PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES OF THE
The true purpose of the Denton Affair was not, as some sources have suggested, to provide a staging area for the invasion of the earth by a humanoid species who planned to enslave the human race to use as part of their bizarre and violent perversions. The true purpose was to build a devise that would allow the Tocs and Ogs to leave the earth once and for all. Had this purpose been understood it is likely that the ceremonies would not have suffered from interference.
The Baron Igescu or Doctor Francine Chienne-Chaude had a two fold plan. First the Raki Project had to be completed, secondly the Grail had to be immanentized.
THE RAKI PROJECT: According O’Brien Rocky Horror was created as part of a Frankenstein project to provide Dr. Frank N. Further with a homosexual sex toy. Although sex was a primary component of Raki’s purpose, the main purpose was to artificially create a Mover or a Captain. The Tocs and Ogs had previously tried to create a Captain by combining human and Toc physiologies. A Toc male seduced a human female while at the same time a hundred Tocs participated in an orgy and concentrated the psychic/physical energy generated in this mass coupling towards the fusion of sperm and egg. The resulting child was George Gordon, Lord Byron the great poet of the romantic era. While Gordon demonstrated flashes of psychic ability he never demonstrated the necessary abilities of a Mover. Disappointed the Tocs and Ogs kept close watch on his descendents.
Feeling that the attempt to create a human/Toc hybrid was a failure Baron Igescu experimented with several methods of creating a Captain through artificial means. In 1956 he hit upon the idea of using a highly advanced artificial intelligence to provide the necessary mental capacity combined with Toc flesh to provide the necessary psychic connection to the Toc morphogenetic field. To put his plan into action he first had to acquire the Positronic brain of Adam Link then operating under the assumed name of Robotman. The humanoid frame of Robotman would provide an excellent frame for the flesh of the Toc Raki to manifest upon.
As related in an earlier section when the Tocs and Ogs are “killed” they are transformed into an energy form. This energy form then slowly feeds upon the psychic energy released by violent death or orgasm and gains substance. The ectoplasmic form slowly solidifies until the Toc or Og is once more a living corporeal being.
The Tocs and Ogs can to a certain extent control how they manifest in their corporeal form. Baron Igescu had convinced Raki to be killed and then to manifest himself as a symbiotic lifeform that would incorporate metallic form of Robotman. Raki was provide a physical body around the metal body and also to have their brains interface. It was important for the symbiote to have a fully functioning humanoid body, at least so far as the sexual organs were concerned, for sexual activity was required to immanentize the grail.
Igescu under the guise of Dr. Francine Chienne-Chaud planned for the manifestation to take place over a decade. Even at that rate a high rate of channeled sexual activity was required. A nearly non-stop orgy went on at the Baron’s home composed of Tocs and humans that Baron’s followers recruited or kidnapped. When the humans were used up sexually they were killed in a violent fashion and so provided one last final burst of orgone energy.
The Baron’s plans accelerated rapidly however when one of his followers recruited the fugitive Conrad Byrdie. Byrdie was a descendent of Byron’s and was a latent Captain. When a Captain takes part in either the sexual or violent acts used to reincarnate a Toc or Og the psychic abilities of a Captain or Mover accelerate the process.
When the Baron’s efforts to activate Byrdie’s latent Captaincy failed, he knew that even the latent Captain powers could be used to accelerate Raki’s manifestation and to rebuild the grail. Igescu kept Byrdie on a constant diet of aphrodisiacs and drained him of orgone energy.
SUBJECT: IMMANENTIZING THE GRAIL
The Grail, in the context of the Denton Affair, refers to the vessel that the Tocs and Ogs were attempting to create. This vessel has very little connection between the grail or sangreal of Arthurian legend, except perhaps in it’s goblet shape and that the Tocs and Ogs believed it was the instrument of their rebirth.
Most of our information about the Grail comes from Forry Ackerman, who gave a detailed account to our MIB agents shortly after the Childe incident in 1970. Ackerman in turn derives his information from personal observation and from his source, Alys Merrie. Merrie however was not an unbiased source, claiming to be one of the Tocs. Prior to telling Ackerman the history of the Tocs and Ogs she had been acquainted with him for a period of years and therefore knew of his deep fascination with science fiction. Her tale therefore could have been truthful, it could have been a fanciful account playing to Ackerman’s fantasies or it could have been a combination of both.
According to Merrie both the Tocs and Ogs had arrived on Earth via their grails. Their long enmity resulted in both parties Captains and Grails being destroyed, leaving them stranded on the Earth. The grail could not be repaired through technological means; it had to be re-grown from a fragment. The re-growing, or grailing could be begun by a number of Tocs or Ogs but the process could only be completed by a fully mature Captain.
The process of growing the grail or grailing as well as immanentizing the grail was accomplished by the accumulation of orgone energy. In order to generate the amount of orgones needed for the grailing and immanentization, prolonged, constant sexual activity bolstered by the occasional act of bloodshed were required.
By themselves, that is without the presence of a Captain, the Tocs or Ogs could build three-forths of a grail but to finish it required the direct orgone channeling of a Captain. In the final grailing sequence, the Captain accumulated and channeled orgone energy and fed it directly into the grail. As the grail grew with the Captain’s energy it was also psychically bound to the Captain. The grail became owned by this particular Captain and only he could move it, until a ceremony of transference, which was almost like a grailing ceremony was conducted.
Once the grail was fully formed, it had to be immanentized. In essence the process was much the same as the grailing, that is a massive orgy was conducted and all the energy was directed into grail, this time to power it up rather than rebuild it. Another major difference is that the Captain used the grail to create cascading feedback until all of the participants of the orgy were biologically in tune with one another. A massive mass orgasm was the climax of the orgy this burst of energy empowered both the Captain and immanentized the grail.
One dissimilarity that arose in the grailing ceremonies between the Tocs and the Ogs is that the Ogs also committed sacrifices at the climax of the ceremony. A male and a female were both killed to provide unity between the male and female principles. This reflected a cultural difference between the two people rather a necessary step. In fact Herald Childe claimed that all of these rituals had acquired created mythologies for what was really a simple biological process.
Once the grail had been immanetized, the Captain Empowered and bonded to the grail, the grail could be used to traverse interdimensional space.

 The Phantom Zone is also known as the NEGATIVE ZONE (and THE BREACH-2006 notation) Exactly what the Phantom Zone is a matter of dispute but it is known to be a part of extradimensional space. Since it is accessible from, and provides access to many dimensions, including alternate and pocket universes some physicists such as Reid Roberts believe that the Phantom Zone is the null dimensional membrane, the wall or skin as it were, of the multiverse. Others believe that the Phantom Zone is in fact a pocket universe, one of the first created by the Ancients. It was discovered independently by at least known cultures, the Kryptonians, The Eridaneans, the Capelleans and Terrans. Searching for a means of transporting matter a Kryptonian scientist accidentally transported himself into the phantom zone. He was believed lost another Kryptonian scientist discovered the Phantom Zone. Exploratory probes to the Phantom Zone revealed a bizarre dimension of pure energy which seemed to correlate to miniature universe that is a universe compressed into the size of a Galaxy. There were solar systems and planetary systems and many orphan celestial bodies. The solar systems were only light weeks apart. Gravity seemed to be a weak force causing solar systems to eventually fly apart creating orphan celestial bodies that eventually became part of another temporary solar system. The probes also discovered the scientist who had disappeared twenty five years before. This scientist had accidentally discovered the Zone’s unique property that anything that that entered it became pure energy, although it seemed to be corporeal in the Zone. He had discovered that although he felt corporeal in the Zone, and felt the need to breathe, eat, sleep and other bodily functions, he did not need to do any of these and in fact could not do them, although he felt constantly hungry and tired. He had also discovered when the planetoid he had landed upon was spun off into interstellar space he did not need to breath. Released from the Zone he was exactly the same age as when he had entered it. The Kryptonians began to use this Zone as a humane and economical way of punishing criminals.
The Kryptonians eventually abandoned using the Zone for all but the most heinous of criminals when it was discovered that there was a high rate of insanity and suicide among those released from the Zone. In addition to the torture created by physical wants that could not sated, such as a constant hunger and thirst, there were there were dangers in the Zone. Odd energy life forms, quantum sink holes and other exiles to the Zone could harm or even kill someone in the Zone. The Capelleans and Eridaneans followed the example of the Kryptonians in exiling their criminals into the Zone, however they continued after the Kryptonians stopped the practice. In the Zone the Kryptonians lost their physical advantage over the other exiles in terms of strength and other genetically modified traits. However even in their energy form their dense structure kept them from succumbing to some of the physical mutations that prolonged exposure to the Zone incurred.

 It is not known if the child, later named Ronnie Barzell’s psychotic behavior was a result of bad genes from being an offspring of an incestuous relationship or if his psychosis came about from an over indulgence in psychoactive substances and self loathing about his hermaphroditic condition. For more about his short tragic life see the film, Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.
 This child was Priest who was depicted in the films Superfly and Superfly TNT.
 This child became most famous by his pseudonym of Luke Cage.
 This may not be entirely accurate. If, as is suspected, that most of the participants were either Tocs or Ogs, then the probable fathers shrinks to three major suspects, Brad Darrow, Conrad Byrdie or Royal Regardie.

 Colossus was the super computer designed by Dr. Charles Forbin with the specific goal of coordinating the nuclear armaments of the NATO. After it came on line it’s artificial intelligence developed sentience and attempted to take over the world. It’s main frame was destroyed, but it had managed to duplicate its programming onto other satellite computers.
 The factory was making components for Hughes International that were used in the Iron Man armors and also other projects such as the Sentinel robots.
 A distorted version of this event was depicted in West Coast Avengers Volume 1, No-80

 The M’krann crystal was a powerful artifact of the Preservers, bequeathed to the Rann. The Rann were humans who were trained to be caretakers and rangers of the cantons or reservations of Mongo. When the reservation system broke down the M’krann crystal fell into the hands of Ming the Merciless. Fortunately, it was pre programmed for specific tasks that Ming had little control over. When Mongo’s sun went nova the crystal was programmed to open a hyperspatial tube to carry it to a suitable solar system, to provide heat, oxygen and sustain life while moving the planet into its new orbital path. Unfortunately Ming had the power to choose which solar system the planet would travel and chose Earth’s. Ming believed that the power preserving Mongo would keep Mongo intact while the intrusion of Mongo into Earth’s orbital path caused Earth’s destruction. He was partially correct, while the shielding did prevent Mongo from suffering from adverse effects while the Earth began to suffer from Earthquakes and other calamities, eventually the shielding would have overloaded and Mongo would have also been destroyed. Zharkov was able to reprogram the crystal so that it placed Mongo on a different vibratory phase, effectively physically removing it from the Solar system while placing it in an orbit between Earth and Mars. The M’krann crystal has been described as a nexus of realities. In a sense this is true, it draws its vast power from energy bleeds from various dimensional branes, and if harnessed correctly, the crystal’s power could affect reality. When Jean’s Omni power’s manifested the crystal reacted to the surge of Omni power and re-set itself, removing its pre-programmed instructions.
 Despite its portrayal a far flung Galactic empire, the Shiar were Mongovian. More specifically they were part of the Thanagarian section of Mongo, where the bird descended races were once based. The Shiar were the Winged Hawk-Men of Mongo. D’Ken and Lilandra were the children of Barin.
 The Z’Nox were reptilian freebooters who’s usual modos operandi was to plunder various worlds. Odd John had, with his gesalt group of Oddians, convinced the Z’Nox to land on Mars and scuttle their ships. As fate would have it they crashed into Mongo during one of its phase fluctuations, they took refuge in the destroyed city of the Shark men.
 This invasion has been depicted in DC comics as the Panic From the Sky, The Invasion and The Phoenix Saga in Marvel Comics.
Hellfire Club began as a Regency era Gentleman’s club where high society rakes
could drink, argue politics, read banned literature, mock religion and cavort
with women. Although it was often accused of practicing black magic and
worshipping Satan, this was not actually the case. At first. As the rakes grew older and as the more
liberal members died off, lost interest or were imprisoned, a core of elitists
with a penchant for evil took over the Hellfire Club. As the Club’s membership
grew it successfully hid its demon worshipping agenda, only the
Howard Hughes jr. provided much of the impetus behind the Club’s funding and support of Project Wideawake and the Sentinel Project. When the Club, under the hidden influence of Odd John, sought to utilize and benefit “mutants” rather than destroy them, Hughes lead a coup and took personal control of the Hellfire Club. Rather than compromise their existing agreement with Hughes, Marvel Comics portrayed this “evil” side of Hughes as a mutant known as Sebastian Shaw.
 A year or so prior to Jean Grey becoming part of the New York Hellfire Club, the London Hellfire club was infiltrated by Mr. Steed and Mrs. Peel, with Mrs. Peel, for a time acting as this branch’s Black Queen. This was depicted in The Avenger’s episode “A Touch of Brimstone”
 The Xenomorph were the deadly parasitic creatures popularized in the Alien film series. For more information please see Aliens Among Us: The Parasitic Races. Marvel has dubbed them The Brood. Odd John had acquired a Xenomorph egg and hatched it, thinking to create a menace that his good mutants could defeat. Events spiraled out of his control.
 This seems to be another occasion in which events spiraled out of the control of Odd John. He had influenced Hughes, Kelly and others to draft the Mutant registration act, never believing that it would pass. He believed that the good publicity that his good mutants had generated would offset the “racist” rantings of Kelly and his ilk. However Odd John had underestimated the inherent xenophobia of the general populace.
 Odd John realized that there was too much of a backlash from the Mutant hysteria for his Oddians to be accepted so he chose exile on Mongo. He planned to seize control of the planet by becoming Lilandra’s consort, however he had not counted on Lilandra’s sister’s imperial ambitions or Ming IV.
 Igescu’s seizure of Adam Link’s body was presented in Detective Comics Number 203, “The Safety First Robot”. In this story Robotman has ordered a new body but some crooks tampered with it and controlled him by remote control, preventing him from stopping their robberies. This was the second to last Robotman story published and was in fact the last Robotman story based, if only lightly, on true events. Paul Dennis disappeared after these events. A story was circulated that he had been trapped in a cave in while rescuing some miners.
 Dc Comics, for legal reasons, stated her name was Desai.

 Big Blue is undoubtedly, Superman and so his home planet is Krypton.
 Orgone energy is the primordial life force energy that pervades all organic life, first discovered by Dr. William Reich in 1933. Sexuality and especially the orgasm are the means in which the human body releases orgone energy. Dr. Reich created orgone accumulators by which he could capture and contain orgone energy. Brad believed that the growing grail like device was a form of orgone accumulator. He was not far wrong, the purpose of this orgy was to channel psychosexual energy into this device.
After The Denton Affair, Brad entered the area of physics and biochemical research and did some research on orgones and bions. He discovered that Dr. Reich was partially correct in that orgones and bions did exist but were extradimensional in origin. Bions were how the Tocs and Ogs were able to build their physical forms and how the Grails were grown from the shards of broken grails.
