First Appearance: LIAB 95

Count Downer was the Warlord tasked with leading the assault on the Courtyard during the Siege of Spacerock and protecting the Slately-ditto until it could get to the throne and change the capital.

Despite the wishes of Slately to redeem himself in battle in a suitably dramatic fashion, Downer insists that the King stay in the back, from as much attack as possible.

Using Ace Hardware and the Cloth Golems as a distraction and cover, Downer got Slately past the bulk of the battle, only to be croaked by a shot from Archer.

He is later decrypted by Wanda in the Magic Kingdom.

He was ultimately dusted by barbarian casters during Operation: Big Game.

Real World References

A сountdown involves counting backwards as a way of measuring time before an event occurs.

Count Downer is also a reference to the Saturday Night Live character Debbie Downer, played by Rachel Dratch from the 2003 to 2006 seasons. The character would make unusually depressing or grim statements in response to conversations with other characters, usually ending in a "wah-wah" sound effect and a tight close-up of Dratch's facial expression.
