This is my respect thread for one of the most feared villain in Stephen King stories ever. Randall Flagg, aka The Waling Dude, aka Walter O' Dim, aka The Dark Man, aka Rudin Filario, aka Man in Black. Whatever you call him, he is Randall Flagg. Son of the demon Merlin, and enemy of the Dark Tower. Some times he is the Crimson King's right hand man. Other times he is the devil himself terrorizing for the sake of terrorizing. Time for some respect. This will include the canon books, and canon movie sequel feats. It will also have the Marvel Comic adaptations overseen by Stephen King. Im also throwing in The Stand miniseries as well.
Randall Flagg is the son of the wizard, and demon Merlin. After being born, Randall grew up till ready to find his true father and calling. Under his father's teachings, Randall became a powerful agent of chaos. Sowing death and terror with subtle manipulation, to full out genocides in his name. Randall is known to cross the multiverse to various worlds for business, or simply for the pleasure of wreaking havoc via his use of powerful psychic abilities and magical knowledge.
