The second confrontation between our heroes and Marvelous Man is over. MARVELOUS MAN WINS AGAIN! ..... Hm. Crap, already used that Reigns GIF. I need more reaction GIFs.

Nnng, God, what was I thinking with the Strines having the backs of their heads to the camera in panel four? Kinda make up for it with Grant's expression there. Was sure it'd look terrible in the lineart but adore the hidden eyes look in color. ^^

That said, felt like there was a weird problem with this page. I wanted one of the kids to have a serious blow-up over this, but also thought it might've been strange they're angry over THIS when the earlier stake was Jake going to prison. Kinda works in execution, since they were totally united on the Jake thing and are at various points of acceptance to this.

Was curious who should have the blow-up but it's something we really don't see out of Grant. Even just the word "Hell" coming from him seems a little much for the kid. Otherwise Andy being reluctantly accepting, Jenny hating it, and the Strines being angry about the injustice of what Marvelous Man's doing and the knowledge he'd get away with it. I do like that as much as Lore openly hates Marvelous Man, when the situation is spelled out for her she totally accepts it. Even though you can see it's killing her.

I dunno how accurate Grant's final speech is; though it says something that by the time we got to this page, even I'd forgotten Marvelous Man was recovering from a painful, humiliating loss of his own.

Well, guess that's the end of that then - they're not allowed to be superheroes anymore, that's that! Guess next chapter the comic will transition into just starring Marvelous Man, or we'll just drop it and do Militant Gold!

... Nah, if you couldn't tell, joking on that, there's obviously going to be more on this plot line. Probably take a little bit before we reach where this is all going there, and might have some unexpected shake-ups along the way getting there. We'll get into all that when the time comes.

On another note, hey, hey, be fair here - it's ten for Lore and Nicky. It'd be less for the rest of the group. Hey, in Val's case it'd only be four!

Of course that's completely irrelevant to the rest of this. I do really like the range of emotions here, especially Grant snapping. I think it works pretty well really, in that it's a very different side of him and he's kind of the last other than maybe Jenny you would expect to have an outburst like this normally but he's also probably been the one who's most dreamed of being a hero one day and really probably has the strongest sense of justice of the group and thus would be the most outraged at just how blatantly unfair and petty this is.

Speaking of like Adam said before, there is kind of one obvious hole in all this we're curious if anyone's spotted but... Yeah, we'll go into that soon.

What I really hate here, is that MM has the stones to say he Earned his place as a hero.

When we saw that with his battle with insomniac, that MM did not Earn his powers he bot it. MM is nothing but a thug with power.

Bought* as in purchase.
And he hasn't mastered the powers either. He couldn't do a specific energy type if his life depended on it.
Intelligence, maturity...

In comparison It's like the kids were trumped by a toddler with a badge.

Eheh... Strong words. ^^ Guess we'll have to see how things go moving forward, then.

Cleared out those extra posts; know that Comic Fury has been glitching out lately, think that's what happened.

Comic Fury's been acting up some lately, probably something to do with that.

Wait, 10 years for Nicky and Lore, 4 or Val?

I thought Nicky and Lore were younger then 8, and that Val was closer to 12? Unless you're saying they can legally become super heroes at 16?

Sixteen if you can get your legal guardian to sign off which... I dunno if they could all get that, but that's the minimum for them. Otherwise it's 18. ^^ Your instinct on their ages was right; Val's 12, Grant's 10, Jenny's 8, Andy's 7, and Nicky and Lore are both 6.
