Lord John Dalberg-Acton is quoted as saying “Power tends to corrupt, absolute power corrupts absolutely”, and never was this as true as when we sometimes witness our most trusted figures in society fall. Now imagine if the utterly unimpeachable and pure were to fall. One of the greatest symbols of purity is surely that of an Angel, but now imagine if they had human emotions, and were as corruptible as we are? What kind of world would that be if these powerful patrons of good could be consumed by greed? In Witchblade #128: War of the Witchblades, this is exactly what happens.
