Saving the City: Sans-Spandex

I keep my whole life in single subject college ruled notebooks, and no, I do not know which parts are in which notebooks, why do you ask?

Aaaand we’re back! Until the next disaster, at least. 2020, amirite?

    Oh God, please make it stop!

    Looks like a kickass prosthetic to me.

    Okay, lets not jump to conclusions… It could just be him doodling to wait out the hours… Or it could be prosthetics he is designing to make up for his past crimes… It can be any number of things.

    Supervillains, remember if you are working on a joint project with the superhero for whom you are the Arch-nemises, don’t leave your evil plans in your backpack for them to find.

    Is that a built in pokeball launcher?

  • Hugin on July 27, 2020 at 9:18 AM


    Presumably, if it’s weaponized that will be obvious. There’s a labeled diagram. Those balls are either additional controls for fine movement or they’re the way to swap between taser and acid launcher, and the notes should say which.

    Now maybe it’s a 20′ telescoping arm with enough strength to crush concrete and a built-in energy shield because Make thinks disabled people should get cool stuff, and Break is going to reasonably assume the worst. That’s possible, but this comic doesn’t seem like it will go the “miscommunication for DRAMA” route.

    Why do heroes get side hobbies but villians, aprticularly the evil genius type, only get one “thing?” Heroes have a job, or school, and hobbies like art (here). She just assumed Tim would make stuff for school and has yet to be surprised by any hobby.

    A Terminal Device Does Not Mean What You Think It Does. – Terwyn

    The image immediately reminded me of the ZipGRIP developed by A. B. Ingram, which I first learned of in a CoT Kickstarter update. But as @Hugin said, the notes would clarify things.

    while it easily could be benign the look on her face shows disappointment.

    I think he had a cool idea to build a prosthetic arm for Break, and, being a mad-science-y inventor, he just couldn’t stop himself from thoroughly spec-ing it out.

    It was going to be a surprise, but now it will be a plot complication. Because trope.

  • Opus the Poet on July 29, 2020 at 7:11 PM

    Looking back a few pages it doesn’t look like Break needs any prosthetics. But it does look like you would need to be missing a forearm at the least for this to be used, or useful.

    It’s not a prosthetic; not with the joint-connecter shown, it isn’t.
    On the other hand, keeping plans for my next death machine in my math homework is kinda…stupid. And Make may have some serious issues, but he’s definitely NOT stupid!

  • Wanderer on September 16, 2020 at 4:19 PM

    On the gripping hand, he signs his work and apparently rides around in the really big ones… Which suggests, at least to me, that there’s something ELSE going on (besides him having ‘issues’.
