Continuity Cop is one of the many supervillains who owe their power to the ink.

Character[]

Background[]

Personality[]

Like all ink users, Continuity Cop is likely to have some core frustration in his life that makes him recptive to the ink.

Appearance[]

There is nothing known about what Continuity Cop looks like.

Notes[]

  • Ian Brill's words on Continuity Cop are: "Continuity Cop (an ex-cop that paralyzes people by having them think of all their personal history at once, is infuriated by Darkwing because he doesn't have a continuity that makes sense)." The reason given for his omission, the only one of the four proposed ink users, is "I liked the idea of Continuity Cop but I believe couldn't figure out a way to fit him into issues #13-16, what with there also be these mayoral race happening at the same time."[1]
  • While the above reason may be true, there might be more behind Continuity Cop's omission. Firstly, Darkwing Duck does have a functional continuity. Continuity Cop's planned-for interaction with Darkwing could have been discovered to not work out during the script fase. In Brill's defense, Tad Stones likes to say Darkwing Duck is anti-continuity. An uglier thing to consider is that "Campaign Carnage" is the fourth of five arcs Brill has written and a recurring complaint about his writing is that he doesn't know or care about the source material very well. "Continuity Cop" rather sounds like a "take-that"-response in that context. It would not be without predecent. Someone involved might have advised against the villain's inclusion.
