Default Sewer dwelling reptilian cannibals...

Good find! They're even wielding several Caduceus', talk about blatant. Here's another one, Killer Croc from Batman:

"A ruthless criminal who wants to become the crime kingpin of Gotham City, Croc works behind the scenes using methods like sniping to eliminate his criminal competitors. When Batman finally confronts his mysterious foe, the villain is revealed to have a massive physique and reptilian appearance. It is then revealed that his real name is Waylon Jones, born with a form of atavism that imparted him with reptilian traits. His drunk aunt grew to hate her nephew's hideous appearance and brutal behavior. While still an adolescent, his aunt abused him and bullied him by calling him names like "lizardboy" and "a reptilian freak". Croc killed his aunt and became a criminal."

"..Over time, Croc's intelligence slowly diminished to the point where he became almost completely animalistic and a slave to primal desires. He would then make his home in the sewers beneath Gotham City."

"..Killer Croc's backstory explains that he was born with a condition resembling epidermolytic hyperkeratosis, a disfiguring skin disorder. However, it is actually a form of regressive atavism, meaning that he has inherited traits of ancestral species of the human race such as reptiles. This condition has been augmented by the presence of a metagene. Consequently, he has several extraordinary physical abilities relating to his endurance, strength, and speed. Once he has become familiar with a person's scent he can track them from miles away. As his appearance and personality has grown more and more bestial, his misanthropy has increased dramatically. He is jealous and hateful of "normal" people and often lashes out violently without provocation."

"..Killer Croc appears in The Batman voiced by Ron Perlman. In this version, Croc is even more reptilian and crocodile-like than past versions and has a tail, although he also demonstrates a greater intellect and is much more sane and non-cannibalistic than traditional interpretations of the character due to his plan to steal money by flooding downtown Gotham by reversing pumps designed to drain Gotham canals in times of flooding. Killer Croc appears as one of the villains in Batman: Gotham Knight in the segment "In Darkness Dwells". This version of Croc never speaks and is only shown while under the influence of the toxin. During the segment, it is mentioned by Gordon that this version is afraid of bats. In this version, Waylon Jones (Killer Croc) is a cannibalistic serial killer."
And 'It'...Note the recurring cannibalistic, subterranean theme. The inter-dimensional shapeshifter 'Pennywise' from Stephen Kings "It", is an entity that can appear in many different forms similar to the shapeshifting reptilian demons found in many medieval grimoires. A few movie posters depict 'Pennywise' with clawed, green, reptilian hands:

"It is a 1986 horror novel by American author Stephen King. The story follows the exploits of seven children as they are terrorized by the eponymous inter-dimensional predatory life-form that exploits the fears and phobias of its victims in order to disguise itself while hunting its prey. "It" primarily appears in the form of "Bob Gray" a.k.a. "Pennywise the Dancing Clown", described by characters who see It as resembling a combination of Bozo, Clarabell and Ronald McDonald, in order to attract its preferred prey of young children."

"...In October 1957, an evil shape-shifting entity known only as "It" awakens in the town of Derry, Maine. Taking the form of a clown named Pennywise, It encounters six-year-old George Denbrough when his paper boat is swept into a storm drain. Pennywise, standing in the drain, entices George into attempting to retrieve the boat. However, Pennywise rips off his arm and kills him."

"The children gradually realize that they have encountered It in its various forms, as a mummy, a syphilitic homeless man, a possessed statue of Paul Bunyan, and a werewolf."

"..The Losers are not the only persons to encounter It; various children vanish to be found dead and mutilated days, weeks, or months later, if they turn up at all. The Losers determine to destroy the supernatural being and seek out means to that end. After some research in the town library, Bill discovers an ancient spell known as the Ritual of Chüd, in which a shapeshifting monster called a "talus" and a human shaman lock tongues and tell jokes; the first to laugh is devoured by the other. Bill believes this ritual will allow them to defeat and kill It. While the seven are building an underground clubhouse in the Barrens in mid-July, Mike Hanlon brings his father's photo album and shows it to them all. [U][size=4]The group discovers that Pennywise has existed for many centuries in the Derry area."

"..In August, It turns to Henry Bowers, whose sanity had been eroding throughout the summer, as Its minion. It provides Henry with a switchblade, with which the boy promptly murders his crazy, abusive father. Henry recruits the unsuspecting Victor and Belch and takes them into the Barrens, where they drive the Losers into the sewers. Under Derry, It attacks the Bowers gang in the form of Frankenstein's monster, decapitating Victor and ripping half of Belch's face off, though Henry escapes. Wandering aimlessly for hours in the sewers, Henry ultimately falls into the Canal and drifts back into the Kenduskeag, where he falls unconscious for several hours. When he comes to, Henry returns home to find the police there waiting for him; as it turns out, It has framed Henry for most of the people that It killed both before and during the summer of 1958 (including Patrick, Victor, and Belch)....

"...The Losers press deeper into the sewers and confront It in the form of a giant eye, which Eddie defeats using his asthma inhaler, proclaiming it to be battery acid. Finally the Losers come to Its lair, a chamber deep below the heart of Derry. On a small door leading the inner chamber, is a symbol which is It's name spelled a strange way, so that It can be interpreted as being a picture of whatever thing that a person fears the most. The creature appears as a giant spider. Bill enters It's mind through the Ritual of Chüd and comes to a darkness beyond the universe, where It's true form resides: a mass of floating orange light. With the help of a galaxy-spawning entity called the Turtle, Bill defeats It and the monster retreats, grievously wounded. The Losers decide that It has been destroyed and attempt to leave the sewers, but find themselves lost. As the Losers panic in the dark, their mystical bond begins to fray. In order to keep the bond, Beverly has sexual intercourse with each of the boys. The Losers finally escape from the sewers, emerging at sunset. Stan cuts their palms with a shard of a Coke bottle and the seven make a blood oath to return to Derry if It ever resurfaces."

"There's another which people..which abductees talk about that they see onboard the ships and these are tall beings and they assume different forms. Sometimes they can appear as reptilian, other times they can appear as insectoid, other times they can appear as Nordic, in other words in my opinion their shapeshifters. Now why would I say that? What backs it up? There's a scripture from our spiritual handbook (2 Corinthians 11:14) which says that basically fallen angels can appear as angels of light if they so choose. Okay, they can appear as angels of light if they so choose...That's a shapeshifter, but it shapeshifts, it can appear as whatever it wants to appear, insectoid, reptilian, who knows what the thing really looks like, in my opinion it's probably a reptilian."

--L.A. Marzulli, Author of the "Nephilim trilogy", "Unholy deception" and "The Cosmic Chess match"
British Astrophysicist Fred Hoyle speaking to a press conference in 1971:

The famed British astrophysicist, Fred Hoyle, told a London press conference
as long ago as 1971 that the world was controlled by a force which could manifest in
many forms. “They are everywhere,”
he told astonished journalists, “in the sky, in the
sea and on the Earth...” He said that ‘they’ controlled humanity through the mind.
