Regarding Relik: The main point is that he's way more powerful than her, and she can't be sure she can control him, because she can't be too sure he can control his own powers. She'd probably rather ditch Brad and have the suit for herself! :P And maybe the kid/toy thing was a bad metaphor (= my meager attempt at de-escalation) :P
Awkward apology accepted, lol.
Wait, she's afraid she can't ‘control’ him? Isn't this one of the reasons the HA broke away from the HU, because they didn't like being controlled in the first place? *GASP* Is this a future side to Bombshell you're teasing us with? There's all these rumours of a subconscious dictator below her surface anyway, but now THIS…!
Oh, and you'll soon find out that, in ‘Relik’ it's not so much he can't control his powers (he's much better in the time between ‘Relik’ and ‘Retake’) as it is he still doesn't know the full extent of the suit's powers…or it's purpose
. (He never did get to read that instruction manual!).
Hah, and if she wants to try the suit she's more than welcome - unlike the Relik-agents, his actual RELIK-suit only works for his species. The best she'd get is a kinky new belt :P
And yeah, you better be soory about the ‘toy’ analogy…before Relik decides to play Cowboys and Injuns with her - with his energy beams!
Well, unless at some point in the foreseeable future, Relik decides to punch Comet Kid in the face or blatantly murder in front of him, (and, possibly if he just had a really good reason to punch him), Comet Kid is his fan. Though not a fan of the Relik action figure as the cape completely unbalances it and necessitates the use of a included stand.
fans! Looks like Relik might be forced into leadership by the majority after all! (joke)
Yeah…the punching in the face probably will never happen - the RELIK-suit integrated his HA communicator, so he'll be constantly protected from the Psychosis Wave, so no excuses to punch a kid in the face (unless he's drunk and Comet Kid dares him to…I dunno where that came from).
Oh, and I know. The Relik action figures are useless
- the semi-transparent ‘energy-blasts’ you can attach to his hands make him topple over, too.
Now, if you want a good
action-figure, pick up a Bombshell doll. Rumours say it's anatomically correct! Oh, yeah…
I do agree. I haven't really commented on that, but I seriously doubt that most male members on the team would have a crush on Bombshell… I don't think she's the kind of person you'd wanna be with (at least, not for a longer time… :P)
I smell at least one more fanservice issue with that sentence in mind. XD Seriously though, I guess the newer members feel better around her then? After all, wouldn't have gotten her first recruit if she hadn't left a good first impression.
Sebastian, would that fanservice issue happen to be an ‘Everybody Loves Bombshell’ story, like that episode of Buffy where Xander's love potion for Cordelia went wrong, and ALL the girls in high school fall murderously in love with him? Cos a story like that - only with some scientist injecting her with something that makes her release ‘Poison Ivy-like’ irresitableness (meh, it's a word now) instead of a potion - would be pretty awesome.
Geez, people take that 99% joke way too seriously. I'm not assuming that Bombshell has a flood of admirers either, but it would be a flat-out lie to say that she doesn't have sex appeal, and I designed Virtus as a highly sexual, albeit supressed individual. I have personal, albeit reverse experience with this “Everyone wants (insert name of fictional character here)” when it comes to Virtus, who has, at least in the DeviantArt audience, both fictional and real-life fangirls which I can't even count if had three extra sets of five fingers. XD As long as her definition of him doesn't go from ‘cute’ to ‘skilled’, I hardly think sparks will fly between the two.
Well, I wouldn't know about raving, rabid fangirls…EVER. I want some! :P
But yeah, I knew it was a joke, but I'm giving Brad parts of myself, too. And, by the time any of this character development rolls around, he should already have a very special someone in his life - and I'm a one-girl kinda guy, which sucks for Brad. Tough luck, girls, he's taken!
He'd react in the exact way you'd suspect. ;)
Virtus: “You're an alien… So what?”
A personal quote of mine:
“It doesn't matter WHAT you are. It only matters WHO you are.” Words to live by.
Whoops - my bad! I always get ‘tolerance’ and ‘INtolerance’ mixed-up. Thought there'd be conflict (darn).
