Saving the City: Sans-Spandex

You’ve probably noticed that updates have been a bit sporadic lately.  This is likely to continue for a while.  The combination of new work hours and our busy time of year means that while we’re still going to shoot for Wednesdays, it might wind up being Thursdays sometimes.  On the plus side, we’re going to try to avoid our yearly November break, because we’re crazy people, and we don’t want to pause this very important arc.  We might do a short break once it wraps up.We’ll keep you updated, and thanks for your patience.

Plasma blades: scary. Pissed off Val? Much scarier.

Yeah, henchman employee handbooks tend to stay mum on the whole sexual harrassment clause thing…

    Hats off to Coldfire!

    I don’t think Sparkle is going to let him go that easily, she seems like the type to hold a grudge.

    There’s got to be a protocol for a bad guy turning good… it’s probably only for villians though.

      I shouldn’t think so, actually… Lots of archetypal stories end with the primary villain’s lieutenant turning on them. Usually for the love of a hero(ine), in fact!

    Sparkle strikes me as a villain whose just in it for the ‘glamour’ and excitement, thinking herself like Catwoman and other comic femme fatales.
    Good job Coldfire, way to be an honourable gentleman.

    Oh. I think I must be blind, I couldn’t find the comment section for a while.

    Yay Coldfire.

    Also yay Sparkle as an Archnemesis.

      But is above him from a hierarchical standpoint as her boss-contractor, so using señora would not be innapropriate, specially to emphatize cool formality.

    Senorita. Sparkle is unmarried.

    “I am a professional henchman, not a gigolo. I’m particularly not a FREE gigolo. You want company, find someone paid to tolerate being pawed over, by a cheapskate cougar.”

    “I’M BARELY 30!”

    “THAT was your biggest objection to my entire shutdown?”
