Hm. It would seem overwhelm is an unnecessary word when you read that.

whelmed

Engulf, submerge, or bury (someone or something): "a swimmer whelmed in a raging storm".
Flow or heap up abundantly.

It's a word, albeit an unattractive sounding one so maybe that's why its not in common use, but feel free to use it.

Because he's the hero The Pit deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Anus.

...Stapling helium to penguins since 1949.
