Hood's Temple

The Hood's Temple - located deep in the Malaysian jungle - is both home and hideout for its occupant...the exotic, and dangerous, nemesis of International Rescue. Within its walls, The Hood schemes and plots...as he conducts his fiendish operations in pursuit of wealth and power.

In its vast main chamber, the centerpiece is a life-size statue of his half-brother, Kyrano. Through it, the Hood focuses his mystical powers upon his distant relation...invoking his formidable will to control him, and thus compel him to help his half-brother's nefarious plans...

The Hood's Temple is seen in each of the Thunderbirds episodes in which the Hood himself appears: Trapped in the Sky, Edge Of Impact, Desperate Intruder, The Mighty Atom, Cry Wolf and Martian Invasion.

AppearancesEdit

Trapped in the SkyEdit

In his first appearance in the series, the Hood is seen using his psychic rapport with Kyrano - through which he learns that International Rescue is ready to begin operations...

Edge of ImpactEdit

The Hood is entertaining a guest, General Bron, in his Malaysian temple. After a sumptuous meal, the General offers his host a chest filled with treasure - if he succeeds in bringing down the entire Red Arrow flight-test program...

Desperate IntruderEdit

After learning that International Rescue (actually, only Brains and Tin-Tin) is seeking to discover the hidden treasure of Lake Anasta, the Hood's determined to get to it first - and hypnotises Kyrano once more, to tell him when the expedition will happen...

The Mighty AtomEdit

The Hood returns to his Malaysian Temple, with photos the robotic mouse took of Thunderbird 2...only to find all he had was pictures of Lady Penelope screaming. In frustration and anger, he destroys the device...

Cry WolfEdit

After reading a newspaper story involving International Rescue and two Australian boys, the Hood sees a perfect opportunity for his next evil secret-stealing scheme...

Martian InvasionEdit

The Hood's temple visitor this time, represents a foreign power - one who's interested in buying a film of the Thunderbird craft in action. He offers the film for 200 million dollars, and tells the buyer "he will get it within a month." The buyer agrees to cash on delivery...

The Hood then puts Kyrano under his spell, and instructs him to disable Thunderbird One's Automatic Camera Detector...

Thunderbirds Are GoEdit

Originally, the movie Thunderbirds Are Go was also to have featured a scene with The Hood inside his temple. But, sadly, it was deleted in the end. Only a few still photographs from this sequence survive...

Cross-sectionsEdit

At least two cross-sections of the Hood's temple are known to exist. Both were illustrated by Graham Bleathman.

The first appeared in a Fleetway comic in the 1990s (and also featured in The International Rescue Book of Thunderbirds: FAB Cross-sections), and the second featured in a Redan comic.[Verification needed - the former cross-section was reprinted for The International Rescue Book of Thunderbirds: FAB Cross-sections - is the text exactly the same (no alterations or additions to them etc)?]
