I’m not going to spoil the origin here, but did anyone EVER demand an origin for The Phantom Stranger? Anyone? Show of hands? It’s part of what made him interesting. It’s like telling us what The Doctor’s real first name is (although the show seems to be hinting they’re working on that…I hope I’m wrong). It kind of takes some of the mystique out of him. Plus it’s religiously insensitive what they went with, but not necessarily blasphemous.
