I'll leave most of the plot-relevant details on this page to Adam to talk about. Instead, lemme talk about the coloring a bit. Besides that kid with the skunk stripe - don't know if their powers would reflect that, but it's a nice look - there's that woman in the fourth panel.

Not too much to say there, but due to a resemblance I based her colors off of another of Adam's characters. We haven't decided if it is her or not, but we do have an amusing idea for if it's not.

I'm kinda leaning toward it being her. ^^ Wanna hear your idea later, though.

But yeah, Stickset's job depends heavily on her ability to kiss up. I really like the way she looks when she's doing so. It's not an expression we typically see from her.

Senator Howlend is visually based off Adam West. Immense Batman fan, and wanted the Senator to have a Grandfatherly look to him, and West fullfills that role perfectly. I considered making him Stan Lee, who's also a major Grandpa-figure to comic fans, but when ultimately the guy was just too manic. I mean, I've seen Adam West out of character and he's pretty down-to-Earth and likeable. As much as I love Stan-The-Man, I've never seen him when he wasn't acting coked up. I found it difficult to believe he could run for senator and win.
