I'm really disappointed nobody guessed on the Rooster thing since I really wanted to see if anyone was gonna guess "Spawned instantaneously out of Marvelous Man's mouth."

....

There's no innuendo intended for that by the way. I wasn't trying to make any kind of stealth-pun about genitalia, only that Antlers is insulting Marvelous Man's boasting by comparing him to a rooster. A big influence on Antlers was Manitou Raven, a sorcerer in the JLA who also did the bird-out-of-mouth thing as well as the leaf-teleport. Just got the bird-thing from him and the rooster bit seemed an appropriate in-character way to mock Marvelous.

But yeah, rather enjoyed this sort of opening the page like this. Not having the Blues involved at all but still having big super-hero action does a long way in helping the world feel a lot bigger. They'll still be showing up on Wednesday but happy with this opening.

Also I really liked a lot of insults being thrown at Anlters here. Grassroots, Dirtbag, "Freak of nature." All kinda fitting for an eco-terrorist. I feel sorta bad none of them are coming from the actual kids.

Also I love that "Flguhgaglah" is the noise you make when roosters crawl out of your mouth.

I kind of like how right from first appearing Marvelous is kind of shoehorning himself into everything going on with the comic; fits nicely with the general idea of the character it seems like. Granted, that being said I don't know if he's actually appearing again in this chapter; if he does, it won't be for a long while.

Not sure how much I've got to say beyond that really, think Adam pretty well summed it up. This is the last page with the thicker lines if anyone's wondering, comic will switch to the thin ones on the 400th page on Wednesday. Which as has been mentioned before is a double-length one, so look forward to that.

You'd think Shinobu would've grabbed Spencer before letting him collapse until the concrete and risk infecting the wound.

I did guess what the rooster was for, though the fact it came out of MM's mouth was out of left field.

I'd have been weirded out if it wasn't. ^^
