    Is Rhys pronounced “Rees” or “Rice”??

  2. weremoogle says:

    I already don’t like him. I think it’s the cheekbones. Can’t trust cheekbones like that.

  3. Brian says:

    And his abs show through his shirt. Can’t trust anyone with abs that show through the shirt.

      Im more disturbed that his shirt matches his eyes. That like, SCREAMS superhero with color trend.

  4. Freezer says:

    Am I the only one seeing a “Will Not Take A Hint” sign flashing over him?

  5. Black Rose says:

    Well,this is the substitute hero. Can’t wait to learn his hero name…

    • Ragingagnostic says:

      Technically, he IS in his secret identity mode (hence the lack of a costume). This also isn’t an assignment requiring heroic assistant. This is just the initial meeting in which they get introduced and acquainted.

      That being stated, this man is an inconsiderate jerk to make her wait for over two hours without so much as a phone call to let the office know he would be late. Maybe he had an emergency to attend to before he came there. In such a case, his excuse had better be excellent.

      • Tomy Ironmane says:

        To be completely fair, we have SEEN how this agency operates and treats sidekicks. It’s entirely possible that he DID call and they simply did not feel the need to tell her.

    “Look, Rhys. A hero says he’s gonna be somewhere, he’s there. I don’t care how late you are in your secret ID – that’s what secret IDs are [i]for[/i]. But what you do as a hero is on MY time, so from now on, you fly straight. Don’t like it? I’ll kick your ass like I kick every other super’s ass.”

    Ah, his power is to have the world’s most punchable face. And while all their opponents are instinctively drawn to punching that smug face, Val can casually knock them out from behind.

    On the plus side: Last time she had to wait that long for her hero, it turned out to be someone quite decent.

    And I noticed while trying to find out how long she’d waited that on a working clock, only the first one’s hand positions would be possible. XD

    Yeah, I’m an MT Story Discussions veteran alright. To quote the motto: “We’re putting the anal into analysis.”

  9. J says:

    Watch, he had to save like a hundred puppies and orphans on the way over and that’s why he’s late. You’re all gonna feel so bad about yourself.

    (Nah, I’m just eager to see where this goes. Is he a good hero or a dumb hero? ONLY TIME WILL TELL.)

  10. SeanR says:

    My guess is he’s excellent at heroing…
    ..but he needs a personal secretary to remind him to leave the house.

    >>>”And I noticed while trying to find out how long she’d waited that on a working clock, only the first one’s hand positions would be possible. XD”

    Not sure why you’d say that, unless the comic’s been fixed since. The second one is 9:25, third one is 10:10. (Yes, I was taught to read time without numbers. Only works if the clock’s handy.)

  12. Lukkai says:

    At 25 minutes past, the hour hand would not be on the nine anymore, but nearly halfway to the ten. And in the third one, the hour hand has not yet reached the ten although it should be a little past it.

    That’s why I’m saying this.

    Also, I refer again to the quote at the bottom of my first comment. 😉

    It is agent Gray from the 1st panel.

  14. Ed Rhodes says:

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but if she’s IN Agent Grey’s office, shouldn’t the name on the glass of the office door be backwards?

    • Mujaki says:

      They’re not necessarily inside his office, first panel. More likely they are in the hallway just outside his office, where there is more room for that row of chairs she’s waiting in.

  15. livvy says:

    There’s probably more than one agent at that HQ. That’s likely just the waiting area outside of Grey’s door.

    He could be late on purpose. Wanting to show his new side kick that things work on his time not her time.
