A long time ago the sorcerer Yen Sid created a pen-and-paper world for forgotten Disney characters, held in an intricate model on a table, and accessible through a mirror. Mickey, who finds himself inside Yen Sid's study, sees the model, and waits until Yen Sid is gone before going back to take another look at it. Mickey decides to create himself using Paint but instead creates the Blot. Mickey tries to clean up the mess he made but instead spills Thinner on the model, allowing the Shadow Blot to enter the Wasteland. Mickey manages to escape without Yen Sid knowing, returning to his world where he went on to live to years of success and fame, but his meddling had consequences. The Thinner Disaster allowed the main antagonist of Epic Mickey, the Blot, to invade the paper-pen world, resulting in a series of wars with the world's ruler, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in the Blot Wars. The Blot wins over this struggle, and Oswald now blames Mickey for all this fiasco. Mickey, already plunged into the world by the Shadow Blot, must gain the trust of Oswald and defeat the Blot once and for all.
Created by none other than Mickey Mouse himself, the Blot is the main antagonist of Epic Mickey. Despite already unleashing its wrath against Wasteland and morphing it into a warped, twisted version of its former self, the Blot still hungers for more power. (more..)
