The Kraken has haunted my psyche since childhood (Clash of the Titans). I couldn/t submerge in any moderately frigid body of water with out the haunting image of Arcetuthis in pursuit of me. I was orrationally convinced rthat I would be teleported into the ocean and the deep, black crushing domain of the Kraken.
I have vowed since childhood to train myself for the fateful day that I and that swimming nightmare meet.
So the Umbrella Academies Kraken was an instant favorite of mine.
A lil off topic but a nice window into the mind of Sling Shot, so no big loss.
