For many years there have been legends about the influence of Morpheus on the sleep of ordinary people. There are those who believe in such stories, but at the beginning of the 20th century, civilians increasingly turned to the voice of reason and believed only in what they saw with their own eyes. Only the pain of loss could make the sorcerer Roderick Burgess dare to try to capture Death — internal torment demanded a way out…
“The Sandman ss 2”: release date, announcement
The sequel to the superhero supernatural fantasy “The Sandman” has been officially announced. It is known that work on the season 2 began immediately after the premiere of the first one. This means that the premiere of new episodes can be expected by the end of summer-beginning of autumn 2023. There is currently no more precise information. We continue to follow the new.
The little son of Roderick Burgess was always afraid of witchcraft and did not learn the wisdom of his father. He only carried out his orders and bowed before the strongest sorcerer who decided to call on Death itself. The reason for this was the loss of the eldest son of Roderick. The loving father wanted to make up for this loss by resurrection through Death.
But instead of Death, Morpheus fell into the trap of sorcerers. Governing the flourishing world of dreams, he helped people get out of dreams without unnecessary worries. But by making him his prisoner, Roderick doomed millions of people to trouble — they simply did not wake up, remaining in captivity of a lethargic sleep for a long time. This went on for 70 long years.
During this time, many changes took place, Roderick’s precarious position strengthened financially and brought him success in business. But he owed it all to the items he took from Morpheus. Taking the amulet, sandbag and mask from him, Roderick carelessly continued to search for methods to resurrect the deceased. The younger child was of little interest to him, since he did not have a firmness of character and did what his father told him.
10 years after the capture of Morpheus, Roderick was honored with two twists of fate at once. The first was the flight of his young wife, who took with her an amulet and money. She did not want to have an abortion, which her husband insisted on. And the second twist was a fatal blow from the son he never loved.
For the next decades, Morpheus languished in a glass bowl. But a random gesture freed him and made him the worst enemy of those who contributed to his capture. The survivors in a lethargic dream were able to wake up, it became easier for people to fall asleep. But Morpheus himself did not return to the world of dreams, but to real devastation, which he would have to restore again.
Why is he called the Sandman? There is a belief that when a person falls asleep, Morpheus blows sand on him — this takes the person into the world of those dreams that God wants to show him. But what happened to people during the years that the Sandman spent in captivity? How will he restore the shaky peace and defeat his worst enemies?..
