Contact the Hooded Hood

Welcome. Enter freely and of your own will. Herein are the strange materials which I have contributed to the Tales of the Parodyverse website, a long-running superhero comics parody fiction online community.

The characters and situations are summarised for the baffled in The Who's Who of the Parodyverse and the The Where's Where of the Parodyverse.If you prefer your information in a more entertaining narrative form, you could also look at our introductory story, Welcome to the Parodyverse. If you'd like to contribute your own Parodyverse stories you may want to look at the Parodyverse Frequently Asked Questions page. We welcome new writers.

And so to the stories:

Lair Legion: Year One

The origin of the Parodyverse's greatest heroes, the start of the whole confusing narrative.

The Hooded Hood Chronicles

The original series of stories I wrote for the Parodyverse, which introduce one of the Parodyverse's greatest villains, and culminate in the cosmic melodrama of the First Coming of Galactivac, the Living Death that Sucks.

Untold Tales of the Lair Legion #1-44 #45-100
#101-150 #151-200 #201-250 #251-300 #301-

The adventures of the Parodyverse's mightiest heroes - such as they are. These adventures loosely follow on from the Hood Chronicles above. If anything will give you an idea of what the Parodyverse is about it's these, I'm afraid.

The Journals of Sir Mumphrey Wilton

The story of one old buffer who meets the most extraordinary people and wanders through the bizarrest of scrapes but gets home in time for tea.

The Premiere Series

The culture clash of two superhero societies, and the adventures of the mightiest hero of two worlds.

Saving the Future

The longest saga in the long history of long Parodyverse sagas.

Boss Deadeyes

A murdered 1930s gangster returns as an undead in the modern day to reclaim his criminal empire.

Herringcarp Gothic

The dark history and sinister destiny of Herringcarp Asylum and its principal victims.
