In the face of multiple sources interpretations and takes on Lovecraftion Horror, for Verge, we adopted a middleground approach. The Irresolute Idols, as we call our “Great Old Ones”, are entities from outside reality.

"The Irresolute Idols" sounds more like a boy band than a cadre of sanity-blasting entities from beyond space and time.

It’s really not as bad as they're saying.

I’ve even heard that most graven of insults: “It’s as bad as Batman versus Superman: Dawn of Justice”, which is the new benchmark for a superhero flick sucking more powerfully than a locomotive, and more grimly than a stubble­covered arse cheek.

"Grim as a stubble­covered arse cheek" sounds like one of Hal's NPC descriptions. ;)
