Another example of Nicky's slight tendency toward getting overly angry. Does kind of come up a lot so far, doesn't it?

Anyway, one case where I think the costumes are a downgrade is Jenny's dash effect - that being pretty universally purple I don't think looks nearly as interesting as it does when she's out of costume. Still, minor trade-off.

Andy's costume's odd in that it's changed in both drastic and minor ways. The basic look and outfit is the same, but originally he didn't have the hood-like thing, the mask was a bit different, and the stripes were also on his legs and were gold instead of black.

Yeah, Nicky is surprisingly touchy. But I don't think he likes being made fun of by older kids. With ya there, buddy.

But as for Nicky's costume looking like a Sidekick costume.... Yeah. That's kinda what it was meant for. He does sorta play that route in the team in general. Also it's hard to come up with a good costume for someone super-stretchy when you don't have super-stretchy fabric.

Yeah, Andy's costume changed a lot too. Originally it was much brighter, but Martin played around with the color and came up with this darker look. That made me try to just generally make the costume more Ninja-esque than before and add the hood. Martin also suggested putting Andy's codename running up and down his legs but didn't go with the idea since it was a pain to draw.

I sorta see Andy as a Robin Hood fan. Loved that book as a kid, love the Flynn movie as an adult, and just seems like the dashing rouge would be a good fit for him.

Explains the "Sir Andrew of Lockley" on the first page. And don't get mad, Nicky, sooner or later a hero needs a... you know, a associate to boot them into action.
