Juggernaut2Cain Marko Uncanny X-Men 410 by Ron Garney-horz

Picture the Pope, on a steamroller, crushing his worshipers as he waves; Krishna worshippers in India gave us the word juggernaut. Ratha Yatra temple car was the original and upgraded version of the Pope-mobile (I call it an upgrade because Krishna trumps the Pope). Jagannātha, “world-lord”, is a Sanskrit  name of Krishna.

Juggernaut, from Marvel comic books, comes from this etymological lineage.

Fanaticism is a theme in my novel.
