Fun episode as always. Great to hear you back together in person!

Khoryphos: The "upside-down Omega" as you refer to it is Upsilon, another Greek letter. I searched for any musical meaning to that letter, but couldn't come up with anything. Perhaps it's supposed to represent his lute?

King, Hannibal: Thank you for calling out Constantine. Although Hannibal came first, that look is so associated with John now. Also, you mentioned that Hannibal could show up in the Blade movie, but (possibly) forgot that he already has appeared in a Blade film; specifically Blade: Trinity where he was played by future Green Lantern/Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds.

I cannot forget something I never knew. I enjoyed the two first Blade movies but was warned away from the third.

Seduceful? I am so using that. I've read a few Killer Shrike stories and you're right, he's not much of a villain. Spidey usually finished him off in one issue.

Kingpin's backstory kept getting changed, so the murder committed when he was twelve might've been retconned away. I thought Vanessa died and came back a couple times, and I think she killed her son (Richard aka the Rose), but he might've come back later too.
