    romance her? Uh… does she not remember her time at Valhalla?

      See Javier’s comment below.

    Acknowledging his romance attempts means she does remember her time in Valhalla. In fact it means that whatever drove her insane, didn’t in reality. Most likely suppressed her mind a la Thrice Evil. So it’s not 2 personalities, more like Star Maiden minus most of her conscious mind.

    Also saying that she’ll kill the people in front of their children seems pretty evil to me. I don’t know why people wanted her to not be evil. She’s definitely another doozy in Jerry’s plan and that’s always a plus. Whatever it takes to make Jerry sweat.

      You’re mostly right about Star Maiden’s current state. More will be revealed later, but your take works for now.

    Ohhhhhh, Jerry will sweat alright… Unfortunately, looks like it’s the Ex-Queen Dark Maiden, as set up previously during the flash back. Wouldn’t have made much sense to set it up without any pay off.

    Speaking of sweat, it almost looks like Swifty sweats little bubbles of light, lol.

      Ha! I didn’t even notice that! Good catch.

      • Javier

        I noticed that as well. I thought it was a fun reference to future events. XD

    Guess she needs to get shot in the head again. Once for Dark Maiden, twice for Star. It’s like the clapper, except it’s laser brain trauma!

      That’s it–it’s all math! Someone tell Swifty.

    Sorry Brock, but retch as in (v) attempt to vomit does not have a w.

    awesome cameo in panel 1, Marc!

    • Bryan

      Oh wow…I just now noticed that! Tony Clifton?

    Every time I think the combination of Marc’s art and Brock’s writing can’t be beat, I’m forced to admit I was wrong. The forced perspective in the 4th panel is perfect and the extreme Star Maiden shift? The icing on the cake of this chapter. You sir are the J. Michael Straczynski of comics (and I don’t count his attempts at writing comics): layer upon layer of depth and story complexities that pay off continuously (as he did with all five seasons of B5). Congrats!

    If Star Maiden still has her strength then Swifty should still have his speed.

    • CorvusErebus

      I think he Does. The problem being what good is Superspeed when Using it would instantly break your Hips/spine/legs? I imagine he has Osteoporosis, or even just good old fashioned Sarcopenia. Either of which (Or anything simular and just as common among the elderly) would render his unusually high Fast-Twitch-Muscle useless. Star Maiden however is an Alien, and thus might not suffer the same debilitating aging side effects.

    C’mon Swifty….. you don’t have to take this. Tell her what’s what. Unless that blast from the ‘Donut-cannon’ rocks through the building and nails her….. and knocks her loopy again.

    i could be wrong, but i cant find the comic were she went “dark” but it seems the laser reactivated her “sickness/reprograming”.
