Evil Ernie

Lady Death first met Ernest Fairchild when he was a kid, who reached her realm by chance. She manipulated Ernie and placed fascination in his mind with death and murder, creating the murderous Evil Ernie.[1] Eventually, Lady Death and Ernie were reunited and she bestowed undead powers on Ernie, who rose from the dead as Evil Ernie once his human body was killed.[2] Lady Death used Evil Ernie to murder hundreds of people who he then transformed into undead zombies, thanks to his new powers.[3] Lady Death even transported to Earth in order to force Ernie to spread more death. This was however, the last time she pressed Ernie, as he soon reached the netherworld to claim his reward. Lady Death played hard to get and even though Ernie was allowed to get to her, he was distracted before he could take his reward.[4] As a result, Ernie abandoned his mission of murdering thousands of people, which caused Lady Death's anger. Unfortunately, Ernie stopped listening to Lady Death and got himself killed, leaving her mourning the death of a dream.[5]
