The Mad King

This came to my head after listening "Handlebars" by Flobots.

Feels so good to be alive and on top.

An idea of Discord becoming king and becoming mad with power.

How can you go mad fi you're already crazy? He'd have to go sane, then back to insane.

I think this is an alternate Discord who's Neutral Evil with some Chaotic Evil tendencies as opposed to Chaotic Evil with heavy Chaotic Neutral tendencies.

From TV Tropes:

Marvel Comics has Kang the Conqueror, Rama Tut, the Scarlet Centurion, and Immortus. The catch is that these are all actually the same guy: he's traveled through time so often, and created so many alternate timelines, that there is now an entire supervillain team called the Council of Kangs made up entirely of his own iterations.

My impression is that this is a Discord who, rather than retaining the sociopathic mindset of a little boy who hasn't learned better, like Discord Prime, matures into a warped god-king who doesn't "rule" so much as "oppress"; after all, "ruling" implies enforcing laws, collecting taxes, maintaining infrastructure, and all sorts of boring things that don't involve leveling villages with the Light of Judgement.

And the other Discords? He scares the shit out of them.

Reminds me of the Beast from Disney's "Beauty and the Beast". Anyway, I'd say this is well drawn! The robe really compliments the character of Discord. Also, the details on his face really do make me feel like he's old, much like a mad king. Overall, as I said before, this is well drawn!

Good job, xscaralienx! :D
