Heheh.... Yeah, time for the kids to officially know what's going on. I like the idea of Alex texting Grant in the middle of the fight and that being how he finds out. Probably a good mixture of both genuinely wanting the kid to try and look good on camera and also embarrassing him. ^^

Either way, yeah, we're going to have to go into all the details for the kids now being public heroes as the comic goes on; again, them being outed as public is the focus of the next story arc. In the meantime, apparently taking in and then expelling THAT much energy at once is pretty exhausting for Val. I guess that's kinda-sorta an Achilles' Heel, though she's not likely to use that super-move very much. Has to be at a power conduit to make it happen.

If you're curious, Grant's ringtone is Start Wearing Purple by Gogol Bordello. It's.... Actually kind of a weird song for Grant to know but it's just a really fun, catchy song and wanted to put it in the comic. ^^

On a totally unrelated subject, y'know that thing DBZ did like three times a season where they'd shoot a bunch of beams at a bad guy and then the smoke would obscure them and then the smoke cleared and the villain was still able to fight?

Yeah, bit of a cooldown page here in more ways than one, though can certainly already see where things are about to escalate again. Honestly main thought coming to mind is I need to color the next one, been sort of dragging my feet on it.

Little bit of discussion went into how to do the Alex interrupting thing and when. Mostly on Adam there, but one of those things where there was both plenty of reason for it to happen and it'd already been set up so kind of too good to pass up.

Incidentally forget is this gag has come up in Blues before but it's something of a running gag in WaR that Alex's texts are like that. If anything maybe should have gone 'u on tv' instead of 'yer'.

Incidentally I know I've been horribly spotty with keeping up the sparkles on Lore's cloak. It's such an easy last-minute thing that I tend to just forget to actually do it, but trying to keep it consistent from here on out.

So we finally get to meet Grant's dad. But its not over for MM looks like he's to awake and now very, very pissed off.

...*sees Grant’s dad and Marvelous Man’s new hair un-style*...this gonna be gooooooood, hehehehe.

Seriously though, that is definitely the biggest setback to Val’s abilities. Her Ult Cooldown period and how without recharging she is pretty much, as demonstrated here, practically dead on her feet. But considering she just slammed MM with enough condensed energy to likely power an entire building, if not a whole block, I don’t blame her. Less seriously, somebody get her girlfriend so she can recharge off heat and snuggles! Squee, I love that being official!!!

Back go serious...I look forward to the coming chaos with the kid’s identities being exposed, and to seeing how they handle the Marvelous Menace in Round 2.

Nice touch on having Alex alert them to the video camera, looking forward to the next page.
