Looking at these and trying to guess who they are is fun. The only one I've missed so far is Bran Stark (the crow and the name, Mr. Magic, made me think it was Brynden Rivers aka Bloodraven).

Shouldn't that be Ms Hitwoman?

Oh I see, it's Jaqen H’ghar who occupied a chapter or so.

Oh man, I totally hear this one as part of a rousing speech in Emilia Clarke's voice.

I'm still extremely fond of this Terminator 2/GoT mashup.

Someday I'll get around to writing that version of Reservoir Dogs where Mr. Orange tickles the cop's ear off.

Hargreaves: Bolshevik, or Monarchist?

In the opening few pages of this, the 11th work in the Mr Man series, we are almost led to expect of Hargreaves a foray into dialectical materialism.

We meet Mr Uppity with his top hat and monocle - a clear and overt representation of the bourgeois industrialist. Other arriviste trappings such as his long limousine and imposing townhouse further give the game away.

In a thinly-veiled reference to the oppression of the workers by the ruling class, we are told that Mr Uppity is rude to everyone, and the detail that he has no friends in Bigtown explicitly informs us that the masses are on the brink of revolution. Are we about to bear witness to class war, Hargreaves-style? To see Mr Uppity brought to account by the revolutionary power of the proletariat? Vanquished and overthrown by the party of the workers?

Not so. Mr Uppity is no Marxian analysis, no Leninist prescription for class action. As always, Hargreaves' inherent and essential conservatism comes to bear. His critique of the bourgeoisie comes not from the proletariat but from the feudal aristocracy. It is the authority of a king that places limits upon Mr Uppity's excesses, as his usurpation and arbitrary exercise of power has violated 'the natural order of things'. Hence the protection the masses are dealt in response to this transgression is paternal, and they receive it as subjects not radical agents of change.
