Because nothing says superhero more than the character from the obscur-ish Victorian horror book. And also because I can.
I wonder: why even now, when steampunk, postmodernist monster mashes, New Victorian and weird fiction are all the rage, everybody still doesn't give a damn about Helen Vaughan? She absolutely wouldn't be out of place in Penny Dreadful, or Anno Dracula, or even The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Of course, it's nice to see Dracula, Jack the Ripper or Dr. Jeckyll in bajillionth time, but why not take risks and refresh your work with less popular characters? Maybe they just don't know about her? But at least in case of horror and fantasy writers, and especially so for New Victorian/steampunk writers, it's unlikely they didn't know about The Great God Pan.
