God bless cartoons

I recently acquired the complete season of the new cartoon, AVENGERS: EARTH'S MIGHTIEST HEROES. In addition to the episode intorducing Thor helping me to actually make sense of what the THOR movie was trying to establish, I copped an AWESOME idea from the episode. In this episode, Odin banishes Loki to the Isle of Silence, an isalnd prison devoid of sound, so that no one can hear Loki's seductive lies. I thought this was a brilliant idea. Imagine an isolated island under the permanent effect of a Silence spell, where mages are banished. Of course, this would rely on the fact that there is some sort of verbal compnent to every spell, but that would be such a great idea. Imagine the chaos and mayhem you could cause adventuring on that island! I think I am going to put the Isle of Silence into the sandbox I am working on, as a mythical place of some importance, until I can figure out how to properly use such a mcguffin.
