I could use a Tower of Rage. It’d be a nice trade-up from my current Bathroom of Annoyance.

    “Look, my parademons… it’s not you, it’s me.”

    Apparently there was going to be one in the “Super Powers” line but according to this site it never made it to the retail shelves:


    They changed the name though. I don’t know why they’d do that.

    I don’t want to know why you’d ever want to call your toilet the Tower of Rage.

    Whenever I see the name “Para-Demon” without the hyphen, which seems to be DC’s preferred spelling these days, I always mentally trip over it and pronounce it as “Parade Mon”. Which I then proceed to think of as “Parade Man” with a bad Jamaican accent. Which isn’t nearly as scary as they’re supposed to be.

  • When I worked at that bookstore on Archer in the 90s, I pasted one of the posters for Eclipso: The Darkness Within on the bottom of the lid.

    It took me WAY too long to figure out that that wasn’t Darkseid leaning on an outcropping of rock in his vaulted-ceilinged Tower of Rage.

  • Jason Langlois says:

    I suppose Tower of Rage is better than Commode of Concern!

  • Andres says:

    I don’t see a way to get in, is the entrance to the Tower of Rage in the rear?

    See, now, all I can think about is “Flesh Gordon” and the stop-motion figure voiced by Craig T. Nelson. “This is the…Tower of Murder. It’s where I…hang out.”

    Damn you, Sterling. Damn you for putting that back in my head.

  • Prankster says:

    Not much of a tower, really, though, is it?

  • Pal Cully says:

    I’m pretty sure this is a name of a porno. I’d have to check my brother’s collection.

    I think I want to have a home built to look like a giant version of myself. That way, even if I get Alzheimers and wander off, I’ll be able to see it in the distance and recognize what it’s supposed to be.

    Prob’ly won’t name it the Tower of Rage, though. “Tower of Hot Women”, maybe… not that there are likely to be any hot women inside, it’s just to enrage the guys who I won’t let in.

    Parade-mon. Worst. Digimon. Ever.
