"It constitutes a mythos so mainstream it has passed, whatever its truth value, for a simple fact."

Okay - the winner. It looked harder when I set it down.

"The accumulation of derivative works has made the Cthulhu mythos so mainstream it has passed, whatever its devotees may claim, from the genre confines of its origin into the broader category of general literature with which most readers can be assumed to be familiar."

The true winner will place a period after "whatever."

A mythos so irrelevant as to be dead, earning a shrug; a mythos so mainstream it has passed, whatever.

He managed to create a mythos so mainstream it has passed, whatever inconsistencies there may may be, for history.

An early use of whatever for whatever it's worth
Suddenly in the distance he sees a human figure. Time was that his predecessors would have stopped to discuss the situation and its dangers, for the sight of one Indian suggested the presence of more, and the question came, were these friendly or fierce? But now the sled hurries on. It is only an Indian or half-breed hunter minding his traps, of which he may have a sufficient number to give him a circuit of ten or more miles away from and back to his lodge or village. He is approached and hailed by the driver, and with some pretty name very often—one that may mean in English "hawk flying across the sky when the sun is setting," or "blazing sun," or whatever.

Thanks. The present tense is pretty modern too.

Here's the original: Everyone has the right to their own take on a mythos so mainstream it has passed, whatever Warner Brothers may think, into a sort of public ownership
