Not sure how much I've got to say on this one offhand but... Yeah. Marvelous Man is quick to put his new powers to prominent use.

Aaaand just noticed Adam forgot to do an edit I asked for on this one of adding the broken glass to that one window. I guess just hang in there on that one and he'll get it when he gets up. Just so you know.

The giant SURRENDER just gets the song Surrender in my head. Great song.

Eheh... Yeah, that's embarrassing. ^^ Fixed now. Yeah, again, just establishing how for Marvelous Man the mental powers are more of a brute-force deal. He doesn't influence or mis-direct thoughts the way Insomniac did, he just suplexes their brains with brief, overpowering commands. Subtly with his powers isn't something he ever messed around with or gained any experience performing.

But yeah, the Halloween chapter examined what Marvelous Man was like when he lost. I kinda find it fascinating to see just what it's like when the bad guy WINS. Like, what is it like when he has everything he wants? It can really do a great job demonstrating why the hero needs to ride up to beat him and make you root for them all the more. Speaking of, don't worry. We'll cut to the center and the kids next update.

I really love how that last panel looks with all the golden light hitting the guy. For the record, I meant for MM to have a kind of halo-effect around his head when he used his powers but I forgot to draw it in constantly so I guess he doesn't have that. Would've just been a visual indicator, and you guys are bright enough to know what's happening. ^^

I edited in the glass and everything, but just noticed another, much weirder, error. Being dropped from that guy's arms made his boss's suit-coat re-button itself. Weird.

...so Marvelous Man either doesn’t realize this man is bleeding out places he shouldn’t be or doesn’t care...I look forward to him justifying everything himself. One of my favorite moments that illustrates the sheer morality of mental powers comes from this comic. The Insomniac said it best with “But what right do I have to do this?”

I seriously look forward to the sheer parallel there will be between the two’s progression as mentally powered supers. As for Marvelous Man, he IS right. He is his own right to do this.

Yeah, I think telepathy is the one super-power you have to be most self-aware in its usage because of how far-reaching and extreme it can go in its abuse. The line for how far one should go can be hard to see and the end results can be very dangerous.

That's why it was important to show that MM doesn't have much problem with abusing his powers and is freakishly good at justifying his own actions. Because this is gonna go in uh... awkward directions.

MM is just a villain playing hero, and talk about an extreme overreaction to having your paycheck docked, not to mention the way MM is using his powers is not safe.

Heh... Yeah, rather is... Admittedly is still a homage to a scene of someone throwing his boss through multiple walls in a fit of rage. But you're enjoying, though. ^^

Heh.... I was going for like a Psychic Nosebleed thing; that he's using it so forcefully people spit up blood.
