Not a whole lot to say on this one offhand, mostly handling submission just because I'm looking for stuff to do since work's kind of stopped at the moment and I might as well get it out of the way.

Let's see... Offhand, good to see a little flashback to the Spencer fight. You probably all guessed from the year three preview but he'll probably show up again soon enough. Won't be in this chapter, though.

Does give some background on the center's founding, there is that. I wonder just how many students the place does have presently; it's clearly grown far beyond the initial ten over the course of the year, and I have to imagine new students are admitted quite regularly.

Actually, reminds me that I kind of wonder if there are ever any tours or anything for parents looking to check their kid in. Seems like the kind of thing they might do once every couple of weeks, have like a tour group through the place. Could probably see them handing out pamphlets and things.

Well, now that I'm nice and off track, hope everyone enjoys, and we'll see you for more on Saturday.

Oh, and though he isn't reading this, feel free to wish my brother a happy birthday. Turning 20.

Yeah, big idea for villains is I picked ones I can get a lot of mileage out of, so every villain we've seen so far will get more stories from, Darkskull excluded (he was never meant to be more than a one-off).

Huh.... Good question on the tour thing, pamphlets too. Could probably do a good filler page with stuff included in "What to do when your child is a Blue-Blood." But I've thought at times about doing a mini-chapter or at least flashbacks to the opening day of the center. Next chapter would be a very good place to put them since we go into flashbacks for one particular character who was there on the first day.

Actually, Martin, I've been wondering about just how many Blue children are not only in that school but in the country. Not sure on the former but think I might have a decent number for the latter. Will tell ya later.

Tell Aaron happy birthday for me. Hope it's a good one. ^^

Ah Val you should give Jake some more credit than that, and as for Blue-Bloods in the country, we already know about one living in Atlanta, Georgia who's daddy will never let her be sent to the center.

Heheh... Yeah, is Xandy. ^^ Just kinda did some math and figured out the number of Blue Bloods in the country. Will try and find a way to work that in.

Great question. This also leads to the question: what if the Blue gene isn't only in children; what if adults have a dormant version of it that could come out at random?

Huh... Weird you brought that up; Dormant Blue genes are an important part in a future storyline waaaay down the line. But idea was that the Blue Gene started appearing in babies born in the last twelve years.
