It's not as if NaB is filled with his tales of attending conventions of stuffy British historians or his reviews of the newest Philippa Gregory novel.
LOL - so true. I pulled out the above quote in response to Ran's AMA on Reddit where he said something like "GRRM doesn't work that way" when asked how much he was influenced by mythology etc. I forget exactly but uh... yeah GRRM works precisely that way and he admits it.

Ran has also said that on Westeros in some of the threads that turn to a discussion of religious influence - "You guys are reading too much into it, he doesn't do all of this Christian symbolism".
Yeah, sure. I'm sorry, GRRM was raised Catholic. That shit never goes away. LOL
Riiight... fiery Sacred Hearts, crowns of thorns, GRRM just made those up I should revisit the thread on that...
I've been doing some more reading on Wonder Man and as usual there are a million mind-blowing ingredients in there for Old Turtle's salad.
I really like the part of that quote above where GRRM says Wonder Man (Jon) was supposed to be a plant/double agent who would eventually betray the Avengers and... Tony Stark.
Two other fascinating details. Wonder Man needed a special potion* (we've been talking about the blue roses involved in something like that) created by Baron Zemo - Nazi scientist who was part of the discussion about Cersei's Eugenics. But a more fascinating thing about Baron Zemo is that he reminds me of... Darth Vader. Dark Father of twins separated at birth, anyone? Kind of reminds of Bran's dream about the helmet filled with black blood too.
*Wonder Man would die within a week unless given an antidote which Zemo possessed.
And back to the OP of course, Kang resurrected him. Trying to wrap my head around the character references. Salad.
