“Whoops” is the appropriate response when dropping someone in mid-air.
It’s what I’d say
Not only has she got cat ears, but CLFs as well.
GO! Cat ears!
it took me half a day of research to figure out what CLF meant. But, at least now I know.
Cat Like Fangs? Correct me if I’m wrong.
The phrase that came to my mind was “cute little fangs”. *shrugs* It’s still referring to the teeth.
Yup. “Cute little fangs”. Not unlike BFG or BFS, but a bit more SFW to unpack the acronym.
Can Bluebelle fly???
Eh, she’s fallen from worse heights.
That’s never been quite clear. I mean, BB!Neil seems to hover, but is usually seen in ballistic arcs. My impression is that BB!Neil “glides” or levitates. Sort of an antigravity thing, but not much lateral propulsion.
Nah, but he can jump reeeally far.
Nobody seems to be paying attention to what you said…
Wow.. Did Dynamo not even see Bluebelle fighting and kicking that Hydra’s ass while he showboated in? I thought prodigies were supposed to be the type that can actually see what was going on?
I forsee collateral damage. Not just with lighting used on a aquatic monster frying everything else in the water, but also a broken bone or two. Whoms bones.. I withold comment =w=;;
At what point did you think VD some kind of prodigy? He’s just a newbie graduated from the local Hero School.
Hm, the wording of Carolyn’s fangirling mostly. With the whole “candidate for best new superperson of the year” shtick. Guess I misplaced the term. Still, for a guy with as much accolades as he apparently has, he seems to be a brash showboat.
He might be a prodigy, but from the look of things, he is also very self absorbed.
Technically, the hydra has no butt to kick (that could be seen, at least)–though Bluebelle was CERTAINLY kicking hydra-face.
if he is the Hype Man lets get TeamFourstar’s vegeta to kill him for TFS’s Vegeta is the hype
i don’t know about you but usually when i see a character being called a “prodigy” their typical character traits include haughty arrogance, oversized egos and massive senses of invincibility that eventually get destroyed and humbled by the under-dog main hero
The way Neil’s hair forms cat ears in panel three is way cute.
Also: does no one in this strip understand personal space?
“Gotta get you to a safe place, little lady.”
Neil summons an industrial AC unit! It’s super-effective!
VOLT DYNAMO used SKY DROP!
VOLT DYNAMO took BLUEBELLE into the sky!
BLUEBELLE used FLAIL!
A critical hit!
VOLT DYNAMO used SKY DROP!
BLUEBELLE was freed from the SKY DROP!
No, I’m saying that she’s about to conjure the largest, heaviest item she can and brain him with it over where he put his hands.
No, I’m saying that Neil is going to brain him with the largest, heaviest piece of equipment she can conjure.
Neil’s pokemon type is potato
Just want to chip in – that’s not a very a-peel-ing type. I could hash out all the reasons why in a longer post – to starch, I yam certain it is only strong against Normal and Dark, and it gets mashed in any matchup against Electric.
Here, take my damn like!
I refuse to not like this!
Also Super Polluting, if any of the coolant lines break. Wasn’t she warned about that complicated stuff, a few pages back?
Well, now she has someone she can make clean it up.
Neil: *summons AC unit hits VD accidentally polluted the ocean*
Volt Dynamo: Hey! ow!
Neil: *points at VD* He did it *runs away*
VD: What no I didn’t
Police: *arrive and hand him cleaning prodicts or whatever*
What a great page! The expressions are so I could understand it in any language.
It always comes down to Mary Poppins “never judge things by their appearance”. Volt just got his ‘signals’ crossed and didn’t realize Neil’s who he is. I don’t see arrogance, Volts just trying to take ‘charge’ and do everything he learned in ‘Superhero 101’ class. His initial ‘swoop and scoop of the damsel in distress’ was a perfect 10! However, he scored low on communication,(it is the key) and ‘landing/placement. He’s still young though and obviously has a lot of ‘energy’.
To be fair, Neil also failed at communication.
I think she got her point across.
She might get across the point “You’re douchebag don’t touch me” but she failed to get across the “I don’t need help I’m also superhero and unlike you have experience with exactly this thing”.
Fairly sure that the former was all she really had in mind at that exact time.
Mom I swear to god.
points for logic
Bluebelle’s “response” to Volt in panel three! I LOL the first time and still have a big grin.
*edit* And it appears we will have an answer to “can she fly?” in the next installment,
did i miss something? since when is she called bluebelle?
When the headless robot discussed BB!Neil with his secretary (a small dog), it was noted that chatrooms had ascribed this moniker to our esteemed protagonist.
Kinda like bloggers tagged Elliot Dunkel’s superheroine form “Cheerleadra” over in EGS.
I think it was when “monitor man” was surfing the interweb, investigating Neil.
“monitor man” yes that’s hilarious *dies from laughter*
Since at least as far back as when she captured the mugger.
The newspaper article after she saved my cameo character from the mugger.
He don’t need no hero, baby
Neil looks too cute with their hair down.
I think so too, which is why, even though it always STARTS in a ponytail I almost always find a reason for it to be set free somehow ._.
Here’s a question like to hear people’s opinions on, are the cat ears meant as a metaphorical imagery or did Bluebells divine body actually transform, like how it changes the costume depending on the location.
Personally I think being able to turn into a cat–girl would be a pretty cool Power up.
I could answer this but I almost feel like it would be better if I didn’t
NEIL AND THAT GUY SITTIN’ IN A TREE
I just noticed on going back to read the strip again the cat ears in panel 3, that was inspired.
I also hope this was caught on film as this will do wonders for VD’s image.
Poor Neil. Forced to be rescued by a pretty boy in spandex (or whatever he’s wearing, that shirt is way to tight to be normal). Falling is almost better.
correction: Forced to be rescued by a pretty boy in spandex with a generic name.
…and more ego than is good for him.
did she knee him in the crotch during her struggle?
Heh. I would pay to see that. Either way this probobly isn’t gonna work out well for Mr. up-and-coming-superhero-who-is-trying-to-steal-our-heroes-spotlight.
Um, did Neil forget he can fly?
EDIT: Apparently Neil can’t fly? Huh . . . okay then.
pretty sure this has been discussed and Neil can’t fly.
Hi. It’s apparent to me now that I may have come of as rude. Sorry about that. Totally didn’t mean it
Neil used Fury Swipes!
Oh no, it was Super Effective!
lol XD love her acting like a cat =^,,^=
and I’m calling it now!! she will end up dating him at some point in this comic hahaha ^///^ )
Neil stop screaming as you fall. Your only reinforcing his idea that you need saving.
Gotta ask, are the cat ears ‘real’ or just artistic license? The astral body has already shown that it adapts to the situation its user is in.
I asked pretty much the exact same thing.
Will we eventually find out why Neil’s mom had a feeling he would be a magical girl?
Hey! That’s a red card! Dynamo, you are out!
Last panel: here we see Neil forgetting they’re in a nigh-indestructible shell, with reflexes to match.
