Who could it be!?
This is what we in the business call a “non-mystery”.
But seriously, this is getting good. Well, it was already getting good, so I guess it’s getting better. *munches popcorn*
But where is his questionable ally, the loveable child vigilante, Leg-chan!?
The leg’s name is LEGGERKINS you filthy mouth-breather
Reed’s arm went rocket fist after his death to avenge him!
If I was Reed at the moment, I would be way past angry. I can’t wait to see the confrontation between Him and Cebus. Which is to say I can’t wait to see Reed kick her traitorous ass.
Oh NOES! It’s the age old sci-fi debate between cybernetic upgrades and biological engineering!
My money is on cybernetics. I do love me some technology.
Well, considering that Cebus has no obvious modifications, it’s more Cybernetics versus Badass Normal, unless we get a surprise next page.
Of course, if Reed is that poor a shot, this fight’s still fair.
That was a smoke grenade, you’re not supposed to hit people with those. It’s a perfect shot if I’ve ever seen one, in the dead center of the group.
Poor shot? Wasn’t that a smoke grenade? You’re not suppose to directly hit people with one of those, just land it in the middle of them where it’ll affect as many people as possible. Of course you can also end up hitting some of your own people. Oops! . . .
I dunno, I think I’d enjoy it better if there was some mixed feelings in there. Her feelings for Reed seemed genuine (note her concern back when Gear cut his arm off; I think we can safely say Gear is not involved with Alter), and the only reason they’re at odds now is her organizational allegiance. There’s a ton of good emotions to work with here and it’d be a shame to just go “RAR I AM ANGER WE’RE NOT DATING NOW.”
there would eventually be problems anyway when he found out she likely has a tail…
I’m betting she doesn’t have a tail. I’m betting her feet have opposable toes.
That said, the mixed feelings thing does make sense, although at the time Reed lost his arm her allegiance to Alter wasn’t in any way in conflict with concern for his well being.
We’re going to see just how cold she truly is by how easily and how much she buries any feelings she had for him now.
I have to say, I have mixed feelings about her being in league with dog-face over there.
I would much have preferred it if she was in league with Dapper Dog.
I would be fine with ANYONE being in league with Dapper Dog.
His hat is amazing.
The rescue would have been over a lot quicker if only he had chose the Repulsor Beam option.
Why didn’t he get a arm more reminiscent of War Machine?
Then he could just go SHOULDER CANNON and save the day, because James Rhodes is like a thousand times cooler than Tony Stark. I don’t care about what you people think about what I think, but that red-and-yellow just doesn’t work for me. War Machine, at least, looks like technology. Iron Man looks like… a dude in a colorfully-painted tin-can suit.
… I just went off on a tangent. Ignore me and continue your puny human lives that don’t care what I think. Dormammu loves you all.
So painting tech makes it not look like tech? Good to know!
That would mean doing more surgery on and removing more organics from Reed because the cut was below the shoulder.
Oh YEAH! Cyber-Reed for the save!
1. Cebus is either a grad from the school of badass normal acrobats or she DOES have genetic and surgical enhancements that give her improved physical abilities.
2. It IS an uzi.
3. Canis’ line of fire would indeed have hit Cebus had he pulled the trigger.
Cube really does anticipate all of our ideas, doesn’t she.
1. Well, yeah, Cebus *is* a monkey.
Also, Cho has to duck ASAP. Cebus is no longer in the line of fire but Cho still is- even if she’s got some cover from the smoke.
still a risk of hitting Cebus. even more so now that he can’t see her.
Yeah, Cebus. The one who’s currently moving quickly and acrobatically, and will be trying to get clear of the smoke.
Smoke wont help much if Doggy sees Cebus dive away… because he’ll just fill the whole region with bullets.
It’s Tony Stark!
No, it’s the Iron Man arm of the law.
Y’know, that sounded better before I posted it…
Well, I was amused.
It’s CAPTAIN PLANET!
It’s a bird!
dead or alive you’re coming with me
Reed please tell me you have a lethal gun too
It’s not Reed, it’s just Arm-kun, who mysteriously gained sentience.
He will live on, Through This ARM!
On a gathering storm comes
a tall handsome man
In a dusty black coat with
a RED RIGHT HAND
^YES! I love epic prophesies…
did you say “epic prosthesis”?
But but but how much has Reed seen? What if he just walked up to what looked like two people pointing a gun at his girlfriend and her being a cool girlfriend and fighting back??
I hope he doesn’t think Cho’s a bad guy. That would be sad.
Aye. Here’s to hoping he heard it all or figured it out- as well as for his summary dumping of Cebus.
I’m happy and sad you didn’t have the attack come out of the palm of his hand…
No kung-fu yet but Jones is certainly as nimble as a monkey.
This comic is awesome! One of my favorites.
(Though if the smoke-bomb just obscures everyone’s vision, that may not be a net advantage for our heroes.)
Cho really should have not talked at Jones and just shot her with the stun gun at the first opportunity. Then Cho could have used Jones as a meat shield!
I don’t think police can do that, especially police in a near-future setting who are only equipped with stun weaponry because it seems that’s the only kind they’re allowed to use. It’s not just being poorly funded and equipped but I suspect involves legal issues as well.
Okay, anyone who doesn’t acknowledge Cho’s awesomness probably needs to watch her epicness a little more closely.
Well, the current “Nobody likes me…” caption for Cube’s Tumblr doesn’t apply to me anymore after recent events.
Silly Cho and Jojo, guns are distance weapons!
Christian Bale might have something to say about that.
If Arm-kun was laded with knock out gas it would be hilarious to see Cho interrogate Cebus.
Which reminds me:
She was there the whole time Natrix was being interrogated. We don’t know if he saw her, much less whether they were able to communicate in the police station, but I wouldn’t be surprised if
a) Natrix knows her directly/personally as a fellow member of Alter (considering how Tigris, Canis, Hircus and Taurus could refer to each other during their chat (http://www.kiwiblitz.com/comic/page-303/)),
b) Natrix, despite appearing like such a pathetic loser during his interrogation, was putting up quite an act and was quite reassured on the inside with Cebus around.
At least now we know that Cho wrote the note.
Damn, was really hoping for Cho to be the traitor (but there is still the chance for her to be a sleeper agent, we haven’t heard about Pigsy yet, have we?)
No chance at all given recent events. It wouldn’t make sense.
If she was actually a sleeper then there’d be no point to confronting Cebus because no one else in the NYPD knew there was a mole to begin with. She and Cebus were apart from everyone else when she pulled her gun on Cebus.
Or, for that matter, why tell Reed that something’s wrong beforehand if even he had no idea then? If she was a sleeper then it would have been better to have just let the NYPD get ambushed without adding that complication.
Lastly, why pull a gun on Cebus to begin with if they’re both on the same side, and why would Canis put her in his uzi’s sights as well? No one else from the police was there and with them.
Not a sleeper, but an honest, good cop.
