    This is a comics-stylized eco-consciousness parable I cooked up (my last one). It was inspired by the film FernGully: The Last Rainforest.

    Signing off,


    Shiva descended on Earth and looked at mankind. Shiva was veiled in an ultraviolet mist, so no one could keep his image constant enough to make him perceptible. Shiva lingered over Alaska so his personage would be confused with the lights of the Aurora Borealis. Shiva was mostly concerned that Americans were neglecting the problems of eco-pollution. Earth's climate had become quite unpredictable and weather systems fluctuated more wildly than ever!


    The two superhuman gods known as Hawkman and Hawkgirl despised Shiva and sensed he had descended to 'observe' the activities of humanity. Hawkman/Hawkgirl resolved to expel Shiva and cast him into darkness or freeze him in space-time so his trident weapon of authoritative destruction would be rendered completely useless. Shiva didn't really know Hawkman and Hawkgirl, but he was aware of their malicious attitude towards him. Shiva carefully waited for Hawkman/Hawkgirl to approach him in Alaska!


    Shiva decided to appear in front of an outdoor Alaskan concert given by the American rock band Bon Jovi one summer. Shiva appeared to the masses as a giant emerged glasslike figurine, so when Hawkman/Hawkgirl arrived at the concert (sensing his presence!), they were overwhelmed by Shiva's 'aura' of pseudo-invisibility. Hawkman/Hawkgirl approached Shiva and asked him, "Why do you care so much about eco-pollution/Alaska?" to which the pensive deity replied (surprisingly coolly), "I worry about men gambling with industrialization!"


    Hawkgirl became furious and demanded Shiva return to his mountaintop dominion in his own 'realm,' but Shiva was still concerned about Alaskan eco-troubles. When Hawkgirl insisted that his presence would 'alarm' humans, Shiva conceded that such a turbulence was possible and bid farewell to Hawkman/Hawkgirl and returned to his mountaintop dominion in Asia. Hawkgirl wondered why the eccentric deity was suddenly so 'concerned' about Earth's eco-woes, and she felt inspired that such a 'male-destructor' figure would be 'involved' in environmentalism politics, so she crafted a special crystal-carved statue in Shiva's honor (for her bedroom)!


    When Hawkman found Shiva's crystal-statue in Hawkgirl's bedroom, he became enraged (since Hawkman was wed to Hawkgirl and suddenly started wondering if his wife was now for some mysterious reason 'intrigued' by Shiva!). Hawkman demanded to know why his wife kept such a dainty 'memento' of Shiva, and Hawkgirl explained rationally she was simply moved by the destructor-deity's sudden interest in eco-politics on Earth. Hawkman was relieved and called U.S. President Donald Trump (a celebrity-president and former casino-mogul) and told him, "Mr. President, my wife (Hawkgirl) keeps a crystalline-statue of Shiva (Asian destructor-deity) in her bedroom to remind herself that Western civilization industrialization is purely...vain!" Unfortunately, Trump had worries of his own --- he was currently dealing with allegations regarding personal misconduct (allegations which could lead to his impeachment).
