Yeah. Insomniac wins. Given Marvelous Man's track record of being pretty hard to take out, we were curious if anyone would see this defeat coming. Did people have their odds on him to come from behind and win?

..... What happened wasn't permanent. I get that that third panel looks like the victim from Psycho, but he'll be fine. He's just gonna be in a daze for a while. Eheh.... ^^ Just to clarify.

I really liked having it so that we go straight from the super-beautiful eye-candy in the psychic fight which just seemed to build and build, then right back to that sterile, boring bathroom. Made a good switch of images. ^^

I also like the psychic voices fading more and more with each panel. Thought that was a good touch. Especially since you hear the Blues kids' thoughts mixed in with everyone else. Speaking of, good to see these two plots meeting up. One thing that's been annoying me about the comic is how Marvelous Man and the Blues kids don't have their plots intersect enough. They just run parallel. That was a HUGE problem I had with the last chapter in retrospect.

Not sure how much I've got to say on this one offhand, mostly fairly self-explanatory. Kind of curious how clear it is which of these are coming from which characters, seem mostly straight-forward to me but then, I read the script.

Do wonder if maybe it's a little weird that Insomniac apparently isn't actually paying attention to the thoughts passing through his head here. Guess he is kind of preoccupied but do maybe wonder if he should probably at least be processing someone saying they saw what happened and are going to investigate.

Eh, whatever, do hope everyone enjoys. Pretty much moving into the climax of the chapter about now as you might expect, though still a fair ways to go before wrapping up.

Heh. And here I thought you were the one guy who stuck up for Marvelous Man. ^^

Your opponent that you couldn't hit, a glass cannon knowingly putting himself in a sitting duck position.
Whether MM decides to sneak attack once they are in their seats or crash the car... After MM's first loss he might not be willing to accept the result.

Heh... True. Marvelous Man could probably careen his car into a canyon and walk it off. Insomniac not so much. ^^

I think MM had this coming. I admit, I wasn't sure who would eventually win, if there was even going to be a real clear winner as opposed to a 'I am going to leave now' with it seeming like both could still fight to the end. I hope this helps to give MM a little perspective, which he sorely needed. I also can't tell 100% for sure but is he like funneling those thoughts into MM so he can hear them? I think so but it's hard to say if he is seriously telling him to listen or rhetorically talking about such.

I am excited to see the date though! Yay! And I think going 'as himself' is the wiser move. Certainly makes him more relatable to her. But I thought it was established back when we were first delving into Insomniac that his motor skills had been completely unaffected by his insomnia. Unless it has simply finally progressed to such a point where it does. Though if I could have MM chauffeur me somewhere, just to humble him a little, I might.

Huh. Yeah, crap, good point about that motor control. ^^ Well, loss of concentration is just as dangerous to sleep-impaired drivers as motor-control failure. Or this is just a plothole, either way.

But glad the winner of the fight was a mystery, though. ^^ Hope you'll enjoy the date once we see it.

It doesn't surprise me that Insomniac won, the only reason the kids were able to beat him was because the heroic fire in their hearts showed Insomniac that he had become a monster, wonder what's going to happen next.
