I can see howpresent in pop-culture etc the wicked witch is, I'm not sure how much *influence* the character has had on the *world.*
Pop culture it may be, but that encompasses a large part of the *world*.  And maybe *world* was not the best word to describe my conceptual point that there are many people out there who relate to that character, maybe or maybe not the evil, but the angst and hate, and I've met a few.  I've also met a few too many Glinda as fluffy bunny numero uno who feel as if the world is one yellow brick road.  I personally am somewhere in between, but that doesn't make it any less relevant.  And besides it's just one example.  I've also met World of Warcraft players (and old school D&D) who relate thier online persona to real life.  And these people aren't stereotypes sitting at home delusional afraid of the real world.  These are working folks who feel these characters mirror themselves.  They still have jobs and lives and children, but a thousand years from now,(my original point) people may find WoW or D&D paraphanelia and assume erroniously that these were gods to us.  And why couldn't they be.  Not all of the world believes the greek pantheon really existed as living breathing powerful beings.  Nor does all the world believe Ganesh was an actual elephant.  The point is there is no proof of these ancient ones, so who's to say that in the future, the evidence won't point to two opposing goddesses, and the rogue who killed the one with magickal slippers.
