BREAKING NEWS!!! “The Kraken: Is it Myth? Legend? Alien? Who knows?!” Last Tuesday we began to take notice of an orange-suited SUPERHERO swinging and jetting around the city of New Dank! According to some sources from the locals, this individual has been fighting off the forces of crime using a purple goo that comes from his hands!
