    They are in no way hung up on this…

    If you haven’t lost your own kid, you have absolutely no idea how deep the pain goes, how hard it is to avoid thinking about it anytime your family is together for anything, good or bad.
    But yeah, they are oblivious to how much it hurts Mac.
    They are blinded by their own pain. This is precisely why families that lose children often break up or divorce.

    • Hitokiri Akins says:

      I don’t agree, because of what happened to my own family. My parents lost a son before my brother and I were born, and they didn’t get divorced until 12 years later.

      Then again, my older brother died in infancy, so I don’t know if that’s a factor.

      Because modern families are weak. Back in the day it wasn’t that uncommon to have a dozen or so children, but only four or five might make it to adult hood.

      Oh how things have changed in a century.

      • sidekickgirl says:

        Ok, that’s just harsh. first to assume that parents didn’t suffer grief when they lost their children back then, and second to say that not being so accustomed to losing children now makes people weak? Uncool.

        • David Johnston says:

          The message didn’t say they didn’t suffer grief, just that families didn’t break up because of that grief as easily as they do now. Of course divorce is easier now.

    Looks like a difficult topic for Mack?

  4. Teldon says:

    Que outburst/insight from Mac or a surprise reveal that the brother never died in 3….2….1….

      “Sir! It seems we are on collision course with a plot twist!”
      “Very well then , Ramming speed!”
      “But Sir, the Backstory damage could rip the lore in tw…”
      “DO IT!”
      “… Aye Sir”

    Losing a child is not the topic a new mother wants to dwell on.

    The mother and father wishing their lost son could be there to enjoy the moment is not a bad thing.
    But not seeing the surviving daughter’s pain is.

    Instead of silence, a hug would be nice, and mom and dad saying, “We’re so glad we have you, Mackenzie” and Mack saying “I miss him too.”

    But where is the drama in that?

    Changing the subject,
    Everyone seem to be wearing formal super-hero attire, but Valerie seems to be in work clothes. How come? No formal sidekick gear?

    • sidekickgirl says:

      She’s wearing a little black dress. You just can’t tell cuz the top is simple and it’s waist up so the skirt isn’t showing.

      • Cafeeine says:

        Ah. gotcha. Thx.

      • Ed Rhodes says:

        OK, maybe she’s supposed to be wearing a “little black dress.” But in the first panel you see what looks to me like her normal red “A” shirt top.

      • David Johnston says:

        She’s not wearing a little black dress because that colour is not black. Of course Illumina is also wearing a dress in her costume colours.
