This alternative-history Cal took over the Grand Hall of Justice, killing hundreds of judges in the process, and crucified all his prisoners in the street. He was finally stopped by Dredd and killed again with the help of a civilian, Darien Kenzie , but only after considerable loss of life. It is also ironic that the very wall that Cal built to effectively imprison the population of Mega City One helped in the city's defence on a number of occasions, including attacks from Sabbat's zombies.
However its most prominent role was when the wall's weaponry functioned as an anti-missile defence system against Sov-block missiles during the Apocalypse War.
A revisionist opera about Cal's life was brought out in , presenting the tyrant as a misunderstood figure. The parallel was made more explicit when the story was collected together under the title Judge Caligula when it was reprinted by Titan Books in Suetonius ' story that the Emperor Caligula suggested his horse be appointed a consul is parodied with Cal making his goldfish deputy chief judge.
There are many other parallels too, for example forcing people who had pledged their lives to him to commit suicide see below and gigantic and impossible building projects.
At one point Cal orders a one-mile high wall to be built around the city within three weeks: this neatly ties in with this quote from Suetonius:. Caligula seemed interested only in doing the apparently impossible-which led him to construct moles in rough deep water far out to sea, drive tunnels through exceptionally hard rocks, raise flat ground to the height of mountains, and reduce mountains to the level of plains; and all at immense speed, because he punished delay with death.
Another point of comparison is the Kleggs, the alien merceneraries who bolster Cal's rule and who are the equivalent of Caligula's German bodyguard. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Science fiction. The alternative universe Cal painted by Carlos Ezquerra.
