Sidekick Girl

Saving the City: Sans-Spandex

We will be at Penguicon in Southfield, Michigan April 24-26. We're planning a variety of new Merch, including nine new buttons, a school T-Shirt, new prints, and a POSTER! We are also probably going to be taking part in a few panels. If you're local, come check it out; this is a quality con.
Not just postit notes anymore!

She seems a little unclear on the concept, doesn’t she?  Like, villains and heroes do battle all the time.  People get hurt.  The fact that yes, it HURT that he thwipped the mace out of her hand?  Not a revelation, yannow?

    Twitch: Check you berry email. The rest of you: go to hero school, so that you can get all the cool swag that twitch is getting.

    My only question is where she pulled that out of.

    On second thought, I’d rather not know.

    Something tells me she usually evades/escapes or is met by overwhelming odds and surrenders quickly, that she hasn’t ever been in a pitched battle. Illumina got rated as a hero on looks and heredity alone; Sparkle has the looks at least (under the shallow and biased system), so if she got rated as a Sidekick, her powers must be _really_ wimpy. Her going to pepper spray as a first resort evidences that.

    In her former attachment as Illumina’s sidekick, Sparkle would have been called on to pick up the slack, which would not suit her (apparently) low-level Power, not to mention go against her (apparently lazy) grain. I don’t doubt that villians got away from that pairing. Sparkle probably did Illumina a favor by doing a face-heel turn.

    Welp, I imagine that Sparkle is in for a reality check on how dark the world can be.

    Shake-up Mace? Man, she must have either bought the really cheap stuff or not have ever used this before.

    Modern pepper spray doesn’t separate, hence it doesn’t need to be mixed like hairspray. The classic Mace recipe is also weak versus the new capscaicin blends. This means more burning and no ‘shick-shick’ warning.

    Sparkle, your self-centered shalown foolishness knows no bounds…
    A MINIMUM of sense would have told how in over her head she was.
    Seriously, only thing separating her from being laughable small fry
    failures is the petty personal antagonization of the main characters.
    Time for a reality check.

    Even Illumina has more sense than this moron.
