Saving the City: Sans-Spandex

We have decided to move to an every other week schedule from now until the end of the year. We’ve been struggling to get back to once a week on time comics with everything that’s been going on, between one or both of us on overtime, the season for our nonprofit ramping up, and general brain fatigue.  Because, you know, 2020.

There will be a comic this coming Wednesday (9/30) and then every other week after that, with filler during November as per usual.

Seriously?  "Minions of Oppression?  That's what you're going with?

Get it?  Agency?  Agencies?  Eh?  Ehhhh?

    So, he’s kind of like a free agent?

    Personally, i’m betting on some attention-seeking reject from both agencies…. 😛

    Well he certainly has the dramatics down to be a hero/villain. That suggests to me that he was trained as a hero or villain and had cut ties with both groups while he made his plans. However, he must have not been a high flyer in either organization otherwise those two would recognize him.

    Maybe he’s just a melodramatic dick with a god complex?

    Minor typo, panel two, word bubble two, line two:
    “of those whose agecy” should be “agency”.

    re: “melodramatic” “god complex”
    My personal theory of how heroes and villains minds work is that these two both play an important role. In order to become either a hero or a villain, one has to assume the one’s actions matter, and probably matter more than many other people’s. Maybe it’s, “With great power comes great responsibility.” or it’s, “Power such as this needs to be used. And I choose to use it for evil.” Either way, it’s in the same spectrum as a god complex.
    Likewise, who would don a costume of any sort in order to act in public without some sense of the melodramatic? Still, some get melodrama spot-on where others fall more into the silly.

    I see a green eye,and this is just a theory,could he be related to Lumina somehow???

    Maybe her supposedly deceased brother?

    I really think it might be Delcan Jade (Mack’s brother) under the mask. Same skin tone and eye color, BUT you would think that Mack would recognize the powers (she’s not THAT dim, and she’s gotten a lot better).

    Unless of course, these are powers she never new he had, either holding back or new.

    Ooh yeah. I think Black Rose is right, what with the eye color, the absence from the city (not knowing current hero buildings) and even the name of the current storyline.

    “Power such as this needs to be used. And I choose to use it for evil.” Meh. More ‘Power such as this needs to be used. As it is my power, I will use it in whatever way I choose to use it.’ Most people – I’d be willing to say virtually all people – never think of themselves as evil, even if/when society brands them as such. “This needs to be done” is a good one, usually accompanied by “… but you don’t have the intestinal fortitude to do so.”

    The first ‘agency’ is missing the ‘n’.
