Superheroics impending!

Not much to say on this one, though a lot in the way of new colors on it. Actually don't think I got the chance to recycle much at all, which so long as it's not a horribly complex page - which this isn't - isn't a bad thing.

So yeah, it's nightfall now and things are about to pick up. Stay tuned for more.

Y'know something that really bugs me about some comics is the lack of an x-factor in the heroes gaining their powers. Sometimes you have to question why the exact method by which they got their abilities can't be duplicated intentionally.

Like the bomb that gave Hulk his powers- the government has the technology to make another one of those bombs. Why not just set it off in front of a volunteered test subject if they want a government-owned Hulk? Or in the Spider-Man movies; while a radioactive spider (who dies after biting Peter) is an isolated event, they had six spiders in that lab which were genetically identical. Was no one else ever bitten? Ever?

But in Watchmen, the only reason Dr. Osterman survives his accident is because of his background, so you can't shove anyone into that machine and get a Dr. Manhattan. In Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, the potion that transformed him had an unknown corrupted ingredient so it couldn't be remade (or, to Jekyll's horror, cured). The guy who invented the Super-Soldier Serum never wrote anything down (for some reason) so there's never gonna be another Captain America.

So... Yeah. Prism. Prism is our x-factor.
