Mechastopheles
When I die, I want to die like my grandfather who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car.

Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

Gideon at this point, but I’m hoping Mechastopheles can develop into something great.

The good bits of Gideon are betterm, and Jacob's art was often exceptional. But there's just something about the central idea of Mechastopheles that really grabs me, and some of those giant visualizations of the titular monster are something special.
Voting mostly with hope that a) it returns to the Prog soon and b) the story keeps building to something weird: Mechastopheles

It’s got to be Armoured Gideon. Again, I wish that had sneaked into the UC. Oh well.

VOTING CLOSED

I mean when you think of the scale difference this isn't really a clash of the metal titans, rather Mechastopheles simply stamping on Gideon and squishing them. However its not about that its about the fun of the thrills and in that its quite clear that

Armoured Gideon

crossing the barrier to gather in those rogue votes.
