Oh dear. Looks like Melkor hasn't read the Evil Overlord List.

I'm pretty sure he and Sauron inspired at least part of the Evil Overlord List, so it's hardly fair to blame them for not knowing about it. :)

I preferred Melkor's rebel yell phase. Less a fan of this death-metal tantrum.

At least Mairon likes his new look!

(Also, did you spot that Melkor is quoting Willow from 'Villains'? :))

See, if he wanted to defeat the hippies, he should have stuck with punk and not detoured into glam metal.

Too bad there was no history back then for him to learn from.

I know nothing about glam metal but I'm 99% certain that Melkor will feature by name in at least one song, and possibly even have a band named after him?

I don't know much about glam metal either, but I know there's a death metal band called Morgoth.

Aww, look... Mandos and Nienna are being gloomy together. And Vaire seems to be enjoying Nessa's company.

But where's Tulkas? Did he sneak around back to ambush Melkor and put his head down the toilet?

Tulkas didn't go down to Arda with the rest of the Valar. He only arrived later on, once Melkor launched his war and he heard there was fighting going on. Which means he probably hasn't met Nessa yet, of course.
