And now we finally get down to it... It's taken a while to get us here but we are now at the crux of the conversation.

There are two big holes in that argument:

1. Why doesn't everybody who does that get them?

2. How come she was in that situation to begin with? The super who aimed at the woman she saved probably didn't get his powers that way.

What he should have said is "that's why you deserve them".

1. There's a reason why Abby and no one else would get them in that situation. The next couple of pages will explain this.

2. Not everyone gets their powers the same way. Miss Vecor is a mutant (born with them). Hothead got his in an industrial accident. It's already been established (see earlier this issue) that other means of getting them are things like atomic blasts, being bitten by radioactive insects, and being experimented on by aliens.

Liberty Man is telling her how she got her powers, not why she deserves them. Yes, she got them because she deserves them, but as you say why wouldn't everyone else. Again, there is a reason. It's coming. ;)

I'm glad you explained that. It made me go back and re-read this whole interchange. Breaking up a conversation into small weekly doses might not be the best thing for reader retention, especially where long segments of character dialog is needed.

Maybe but I can't put the comic out any faster than I have. And there will always be conversations and dialogue. This is a bronze age style comic, and unlike today, in those days action was used as an exclamation point at the end of a story, not as the be-all and end-all of the story.

I know one person has decided to just read the issues after each one is done, and maybe that would help with the dialogue. But doing it more than 1 page a week is just not possible at this point.

Oh yes, I certainly get that. I was just making an observation about it, that's all.

no problem, i can't wait to see liberty lass's costume. i might make a fan-art pic of it.

The costume coming. This scene ended up being a little longer than it probably should be, but we only have a couple more pages of it.
