    Nobody is hurt but she is sorry. Why do I think she has been reassigned?

    Worse ….. someone is going to finally make a stink over Isauro technically being a bad guy and punish Val by either revoking her license as a sidekick or else her boyfriend is being reassigned to another country to put him further into the clutches of his psycho ex-girlfriend.

    I could think of worse things, but those ideas are all possible trigger related and therefore speculation only. I don’t think this is going to have any chance of being a laughter moment when we see the next comic, unless it is a Heath Ledger grade laughter moment of course.

    It makes me think that this is something agency related. Mack’s not the kind of person to read Val’s mail, so it had to have come to her (since she’s the Hero in the pair). And it doesn’t seem to be about Mack herself.

    Main Guess: Val’s been reassigned. Mack doesn’t seem to be looking for anything she can do, so it might be a procedure that Mack’s familiar with.

    Other Guesses: Something to do with Isauro (Extradited back to home country to face charges, he’s now on a special list since he’s risen with the Metal group, etc). It could be that the Association is telling Val she has to end her relationship with him or lose her license (Although he’s a good source of Villain Agency chatter, the relationship is actually fairly valuable from a strategic point of view).

    I don’t think their just automatically giving Val the boot. She has a reputation for competence, she’s well regarded by the public, and remember how she was assigned to Shiver, not because she was Heroless, but because he was suspect and they needed someone to watch him/ do damage control. She’s valuable and the Metrocity caseworkers know that.

    Maybe Vals finally getting promoted to actual hero status since she seems to be a lot more useful than her sideki-er i mean hero Mack XD.Seriously girls now got one of the most broken powersets you can have in comics and most shes done is make some absolute nobodys float.

    Heh the URL is “The Letter I”

    Nah passing Critic, Mack wouldn’t be crying if Val finally got a hero license. Either shes in trouble for her relationship with Isauro (the excuse they’re using to get rid of the Sidekick who’s “rocking the boat” of the Hero agency, or they’re assigning her to a new “Problem Hero” now that Val is a competent hero, since I doubt they see Val as hero material despite all she’s done.

  • The Passing Critic on August 21, 2019 at 2:24 PM

    Ah hey Phantomskyler! I strongly doubt the agency has any interest in getting rid of Val(Its literally gotten to the point that if theres a problem shes the first theyll dump it on as shell likely sort it).

    At worst she might have to face a formal investigation thanks to her alt reality self if the agency cant prove that the double existed but other than that Ill just put this down as Mack being an idiot and a drama queen-In her mind not being her sidekicks probably a fate worse than death after all.
