Given typical comic-book tropes and the way he was clutching his face, I'm sure a lot of people were expecting Marvelous Man to now have some sort of horrific scarring from the face-acid, but no. Since he's invulnerable the acid won't break his skin but can seriously cause pain to his eyeballs. Like with lemon juice for normal people.

While not scarred, I wanted Marshalls to look ugly. Not evil or disfigured but just "ugly." Redundant to go into more detail, but just want I was going for there. That shot of his face was heavily bsaed off the climax of Dark Knight Returns where Superman gets acid thrown in his face; it's brief but the expression he gets when it happens is so out-of-character for him you genuinely feel uncomfortable seeing it.

This was supposed to happen in the actual seats and not on the field, but been obviously struggling to NOT draw the seats of the stadium in detail. There have been like three times now that that was supposed to happen in the script but didn't want to draw it.

Already having trouble keeping Decay Conductor's breasts covered up. Speaking of covering things up, I like how more and more of her dialog is censored.

Not sure how much I have to say on this one offhand, kind of a stepping stone to something else more than anything and think Adam pretty well handled it.

I do kind of like that sort of, "Quick, find a weapon," kind of thing going on here, can get some good moments and convey a lot about a character in a multitude of ways with shots like that.

Think the smoke looks a little better in this page than the last but still don't think I got it quite right. Something to fiddle with I suppose, try and nail it down sooner rather than later.

Be sure to swing by on Wednesday, particularly looking forward to posting that one, for a number of reasons.

Your not a hero at all MM, simple as that, wonder what's going to happen next.

What happens next is... odd. ^^
