Also the concept art seems to show he looks a little more badass this time, rather than a bit of a goth with shit hair. I LOVED the first Darkness too but Jackie himself seemed an odd character, like he didn't fit into his intentions.
Oh I don't know, I think that was one of the reasons that I did like Jackie in the first game, because he was a pretty quiet, reserved guy with simple pleasures despite his gang-connections. I don't think you necessarily need a strong/butch/evil/'my Daddy smacked me when I was a kid, I have issues' type to have a rounded protagonist.

Yup, Mr Bungle himself is most definately involved!
