Are You Afraid of the Dark Wiki
This is a good character.

Mark is a character created by Gary. He appeared as a minor character in the episode "The Tale of the Super Specs".


Not very much is known about Mark. However, he also attends the same school as Patty, Katherine, Marybeth and her immature prankster boyfriend Weeds. He appears to be close friends, and possibly best friends with Weeds. He also seems to be able to tolerate Weeds' humor and pranks more than other people can.

During the events of the story, it happened to be April Fools' day. He was first seen having a prank pulled on him by his friend. He opened his locker and a punching glove came out and hit him in the face. It didn't hurt him and he wasn't mad.

He also didn't know that Weeds had been following around with magic. So Weeds used the Dust of Denderon to cast the spell of second sight. This opened an entry window from the dark universe to enter the real world inside Marybeth's house. Therefore the otherworldly beings from the dark universe, slowly started to enter his world and plan their takeover.

Later on he and Weeds were playing basketball outside. He him were betting that the loser would buy the winner sodas. So far he won two sodas. Then Weeds used the dust to enchant the basketball to make a perfect basket. It didn't seem to work at first, then when Weeds through it backwards it made a perfect basket. At first he and Weeds thought it was magic. Then they dismissed it thinking it was not possible.

Then Marybeth ran over to him and Weeds. She was out of breath and terrified. She claimed that whenever she wore the super spec sunglasses she could see the dark dressed otherworldly beings. Also that there was a couple of them nearby playing basketball. He and Weeds didn't believe her. He and his friend just thought that she was trying to play an April Fools' day joke on them. Then where she ran off terrified, he and Weeds became very concerned.

Later on, due to Sardo's inexperienced magical abilities, Sardo was unable to close the window. So the Dark Lady from the dark universe sealed off his universe inside darkness within a crystal ball!

It is unknown if anyone was eventually able to counter the spell and free his universe.
