Big Bad Voodoo Daddy



Dr. Facilier, aka The Shadow Man is a lean, mean, curse-casting machine who's got friends on the other side!  He may be one of Disney's newest Bad Boys, but in The Princess and the Frog, he's one big bad-assed voodoo-dealing daddy.  Is it a wonder he's the first of our Manhoar Menaces?  

Shadowman green-purple smokeHe looks and sounds like Laurence Fishburne (awesome!), loves jazz, preys on the gullible, manipulates the greedy and eats gators (trumpet-playing or otherwise) for lunch.  When he do that voodoo that he do so well, it's done in swirls of green and purple, and the inspiration for September's colorway.  

Hoars, I give you "Curses!"!
