And suddenly, things have turned to every member but Jenny being free. Will the fight kick back up again from here? Stay tuned.

Not a whole lot offhand to say on this one outside of that. As you can see in the third panel, Lore now has a visual effect of her own to go with the ones for Grant, Andy, and Jenny. Valerie's powers pretty much constitute one in their own right, so will Nicky get to fit in soon? I dunno, his powers can generally be pretty well expressed through just showing them directly.

Speaking of strength, Andy's comes up again, judging by how he was able to rip through what looks like a chain and a rope at the same time.

Yeah, it's easy to forget that Andy's the second-strongest member of the team since he doesn't use it much. Reminders like this are often pretty nice, though. ^^ And yeah, I sorta like just having Nicky's powers displayed outright- it's very cartoony and leads to some fun visual gags.

I sorta like that quick exchange between Jake and Mech, sort of showing that Mech doesn't hate anyone and just sees what he's doing as a job. I could totally see the two of them going out at complaining about junk over drinks. Well, not over drinks since Jake is straight-edge but something else.

Also, Mech has a "Mom" tattoo. Wanna say that was part of the character's design for a really long time, though originally I wanted it on his chest, over his heart. But then he never took off his WWE jacket (figure he'd only have that on sometimes but quickly became his default look) so figured if we were gonna see it we'd have to stick it on the bicep.

In several cartoons I've seen big tough guys with tattoos like that, Jake's line about his job is funny, shouldn't Grant's sonic scream be hurting Lore's ears?

Yeah, enough to show the tough guy's got a soft side. ^^ Gladja like Jake's line, though.

But yeah, good point. I guess Lore's just tough enough to take it. I'd make less sense if she was trying to shout orders while Grant was screaming, like she does here-

In the second panel, it should say "Jake's free". Other than that, great turning point.

Typo's been fixed. ^^ Thanks for telling us about it.
