    All this time later her reaction to finding out he was the Vigilante still feels off to me. It was just so wildly out of character. Shocked, angry, hurt, confused and need time off to think? Sure, totally understandable. Instantly cutting all ties like that? Even in a state of shock and confusion that flies in the face of everything we know about Val. A year and a half later it still bugs me.

    That awkward moment when a registered villain does more to improve the city than all the heros combined.

    Oh, so that’s the third option.
    Good for him.
    I mean he’s in trouble but good for him.

    I agree with Amethyst that Val’s reaction really bugged me at the time, if she does try to get back together with him, she should be the one doing the apologising. She knew the system was broken and the situation he was in, but decided to break up anyway, potentially causing him to go full dark side.

    Fighting crime, legally this time. Although why he let the hint slip is what confuses me…

    It bugs me that some readers are bugged about Val’s reaction.

    No way in hell should she ever apologize. She wasn’t the one who lied and didn’t trust the one person who should be trusted, who already put her own future on the line having a relationship with him.

    It wasn’t about the system. It was about them.

    From Bridge Talk III:

    “I feel for you, I really do, but you’ve been lying to my best friend for a LONG time about something you knew was really important to her. She trusted you, red card and all, over all our objections.

    She knew you were a good guy in a bad spot and tried really hard to find ways to help you out and make things better, and she thought you were being straight with her, and you weren’t. She maybe, MAYBE, would have been understanding of why you wanted to do what you were doing, and MAYBE been able to help…..

    …And yannow, I was pretty bummed about it for both of you cuz you ARE a good guy, and you weren’t trying to hurt her. But you DID hurt her. Not to protect her, to protect yourself. You had a choice, you made it, and this is what happened. And to be straight with YOU, I don’t think anyone who dumps that kind of betrayal on somebody can expect anything OTHER than “that level” of mad.”

    Well if Isauro is the Vigilante, what if it turns out there are TWO Vigilantes!?

    I still say we’re going to find out he’s been a secret blue card since he saved Agent Grey!
