He is the clever one; solving crimes and pestering John Watson when off duty. Evil resides in him as well; voicing a dragon and a necromancer. Vengeance and wrath is his game as the man known as Kahn. He is cunning and sharp enough to bring down governments and expose their secrets. And that was only a few of this year’s accomplishments.
