The Rapture - Topcow

The Rapture, The Witchblade, The Angelus, The Heartstone, The Darkness, The Blood Sword, and The Wheel of Shadows.

Extras (the Topcow verse has recently expanded its mythos).
Excalibur (The Witchblade Twin) and the Unholy Union (name pending the child of The Darkness & The Witchblade) are directly related to the above as well.


These are Gods creations, 7 items that are complete opposite to one another. Yet define every plane in existence. However bring the items together at once, and you will gain the most powerful force in the Universe.

What are these items? Gods final message to his own creation.


What is the Rapture? Its an item that grants Hope or takes it away. However it has another purpose…..The Rapture is the final deciding factor in “The End of Days”. The deciding factor, in which it decides who gets to run, and rules over Hell.

And if Tom so chooses, he could expand the giving or taking of hope to grand scale display…to the entire world. With no hope, humans tend to doubt themselves, and commit suicide. Good for us, Tom has only applied this ability when he makes physical contact.

The Rapture grants the wearer seemingly invincible attributes. Meaning he can not be killed by normal means…not until Mr. Black found ways to kill of demons and apparently the bearer of the rapture through technological means. Or the opposite force of the Rapture, Despair.


Seemingly these are only two ways of combating or killing of “The Rapture” bearer:
1) Through the opposite power, “Despair“. It cancels out The Raptures ability to grant/take hope.

2) Any weapon or means to discharge anti-matter.

Special abilities.

Seemingly indestructible.
Seemingly immortal
Superhuman strength
Extra perceptions to view spirits, demons, and angels over the physical realm.
The ability to grant hope or take it away.
The deciding factor of who gets to rule over Hell.



I encourage you to read, the following in order to get a grasp or a feel of the character “Tom Judge”. It talks about his upbringing and his child hood, all the way up to “Tom Judge: End of Days“.

And here are the explanation of how the comic “Universe” explains its mythos and back ground info. Again, I encourage you to read some of it. It gives you an over all interpretation of what Universe is about, and the feel of what burden Tom carries, as the bearer of “The Rapture”.

Upon reaching Hell, Cerberus greets him. Cerberus then runs of, scared shitless.

Throws down, with a few demons.

Remember the power of Hope I mentioned earlier? Well he has the power to take/give hope to humanity and just about anything with a conscious. Here is Jackie Estacado, avatar of “The Darkness”. This is what happened following the events of volume 1. He killed himself and lost hope of finding Jen. Well Tom comes in to deliver a message, Jackie retains hope. And in hell, when you gain “Hope”, you transcend (only humans can do this BTW). Some go off to Heaven, or in Jackie’s case he revives (Which sets course to The Darkness Volume 2).

Here we see The Rapture immune to some bombs.
http://img140.imageshack.us/img140/...erse4p14jq5.jpg

Automatic fire arms are not a problem, not even explosives such as grandee’s.
http://img140.imageshack.us/img140/...erse4p16nl6.jpg

Remember that ability to take away hope?

Here we see him grant hope again, and this time he can get of the train. No one has ever escaped the train, it is said that God himself is the conductor of the train. I don't think the Conductor is happy about it.

Well nothing feat worthy, but Mr. Black makes those anti-matter weapons. They prove to be useful, and one of the few ways known to kill Demons…well just about anything if you think about it. The Rapture is no exception.
http://img147.imageshack.us/img147/...se007p02ga1.jpg

And they seem to work fairly well.
