Mr. Dark (also known as The Illustrated Man and The Illustrated Marvel), is a character and the main antagonist from Disney's 1983 film, Something Wicked This Way Comes.


Dark's background is a mystery, although he refers to being raised in a strict religious upbringing. When asked if he reads the Bible, he replies, "I've had every page, line and word read at me, sir!" Another, perhaps more fitting interpretation of the Bible sequence, given his dismissive nature to Charles and his array of books, would be that he is mocking Charles' belief that the Bible would have any sort of effect in either repelling or hurting him.

This would indicate that Dark is not a devil or demon in the Christian sense of the term. He died by growing old when he was on the magic carousel.

Physical Description

He is a sinister man who is the leader of the Autumn People and he bears tattoos all over his body, one for each person successfully tempted into joining the Dark's Pandemonium Carnival that he founded and runs.

Mr. Dark initially holds sway over the other main characters, but his power weakens when Charles uses positive emotions against him, something that he cannot comprehend or withstand.
