    Correct! Sadly, many who set out to do the right thing end up being swallowed up by the very injustices that they sought to destroy. A warning no less relevent today than when Nietzsche was alive.

    The fact that the man in the 1st pic was wearing a suit and the labcoat worn by Lizard in the second pic are also subtle hints to this timeless piece of advice.

    Looks interesting! Has to be the longest one so far.

    Edit: and has great art in it like Kahlo, Munch, and whoever that Mona Lisa guy was.

    This one still up I see. Let me put you out of your collective misery (and put you straight back in probably)

    Oh, dang. Sorry guys! I totally forgot about this, and should have posted a hint days ago! That is very much my bad.

    At any rate, it is now solved, as Muizer has it! And I must say, you nailed this quite thoroughly Muizer, even parsing out the images perfectly! The floor is yours, my good sir!

    I like how you did "works"

    Ok, I hope the next one is guessable. It does kind of require an peculiar combination of knowledge.

    Hint time I guess. The first pic contains a verb and a noun. For the second pic, find the name of the character.

    Well, that is Wicket. There's no confusion or trick there. And you've got a Post-It note. I don't know if the bat is relevant to it or not though

    Is it possible that you're looking for the expression "sticky wicket"? I.e., a delicate and/or difficult situation.

    EDIT: Ah, Abdül ninjaed me. That's what I get for opening a tab and then doing something else for 15 minutes before actually looking at said tab

    Thanks, it was that Star Wars character that really helped me. Next one shouldn't be too difficult, but I can't think of anything better:

    That's right! The depicted monarchs are (clockwise, from top left), Charles V of France, Philip V of Spain, Murad V of the Ottoman Empire and John V of Portugal.

    Didn't recognize them, but to confirm I guessed one of them had to be a "charles"

    I think the following isn't too hard either.
