Success has gone to Graham's head, and he's become a total jerk. Paul must carry out the sacred duty entrusted to him if ever this dark day should come...


  • The plot of this video is a reference to the Justice League crossovers with Superman and Batman, in which the nigh-invulnerable Superman worries about what might happen to the world if he ever turned evil or lost control. As Batman is one of the few individuals that Superman believes to be both trustworthy and potentially capable of challenging him, Superman asks him to serve as a check against the otherwise-unopposed Man of Steel. Batman is given a ring of Kryptonite, the material that negates Superman's powers, as a means of countering his invulnerability.
    • 'Phailinite', the fictitious substance in Paul's ring, is a reference to the Bonus Video series 'Phailhaüs'. It is also a reference to Kryptonite, the radioactive fragments of the planet Krypton which constitute Superman's only weakness.
    • In the flashback where Graham gives Paul the ring, Graham is wearing a 'Green Lantern' shirt. Green Lantern was a superhero whose powers derived from an alien artifact in the shape of a ring.
