Apologies this page is up late; I thought I’d scheduled it already.

Here’s to see how good the EMP is now.

I can’t wait for the next strip… or 2.

Hopefully good enough to take out at least the guys on him. Hopefully not good enough to take out the whole shipment of phones…

I had the same idea about the phones, but then, they are in metal containers aka Faraday Cage … so … unless physics is being bend.

oh wait there is a guy flying on yellow arrows. I guess all is possible.

I’m surprised Zeke is using shurikens and not mini homing missiles…then again, they probably couldn’t get efficient ones in time.
That “Just hold still” line was beautiful though XD

He did mention not to injure them in the last strip. I feel like homing missiles would accomplish just that, a lot of injuries.

That’s because Analog can respawn. Your only counter for a respawning opponent is to pin them down without hurting them. I don’t think Zeke cares about hurting either of them.

Does Zeke know Analog can respawn though?

He only mentioned to not injure Ethan, I assume because he doesn’t want him respawning.

You can fit a lot more throwing stars in an arm than you can missiles, miniature or no.

I feel like using an arrow to deflect the projectiles would have been less strenuous on his already damaged body. 😐

I’m surprised he doesn’t make himself Arrow Armor to defend himself. While this probably requires a lot of effort, he could probably just make it out of 6 arrows around his body and then just have small slits for his eyes.

Not even really nessicary to go for 6 unless you are doing the flying box approach. 2, one to stand on and 1 to put between you and the AA fire should prety much nosell someone trying to shoot him down unless the shots can punch through his arrows. 3 would be safer if he can pull it off as you can make one corner of a box with that and point it down blocking any fire from below. I’m not actualy sure how many he can control at once. Most we’ve seen is 5, once in the may 5… Read more »

It seems as though he can perfectly make 3 (His standard is riding one and hurling two), and does alright with 4 but struggles after that. Which makes sense; there are only 4 directional buttons on a D-Pad. So while he could presumably make as many as he wants, after 4 he loses fine control and after I’d say 6 he can only fling them in the direction they were spawned in. After 10? They just sit there

Wonder if the phones will be ok after they detonate an EMP on top of them. Ah well, sometimes you have to ruin a shipment of phones in order to save the IDEA of a shipment of phones.

I’m kinda thinking the EMP is a short-sighted solution. Wouldn’t it potentially damage the phones?

on a scale of 1 to 9001, how bad of a joke would it be if he shouted allau ackbar before pressing the button?

Worse than a 9001 joke.

What I think will happen: The RRoD have already fried the phones before the heroes got there, so they will take the blame for the EMP.

It’s not totally unreasonable that whoever is behind the RRoD would anticipate them using one….. and the reporter just happening to be there, will see what looks like Analog and D-Pad destroying an entire shipment of phones, on purpose.

I doubt that Evil Zeke would anticipate that they would ask a reporter to come, especially as Monroe and the Red Ring Clan haven’t encountered each other yet. In addition, there’s no way she could clearly see what Ethan’s doing with his hands, especially with all of the other action. As the audience, OUR attention is on Ethan’s hand because we know what’s in the backpack. To a reporter, she’d be observing the fight, the bystanders, the words being said and the specific actions. There’s twenty different distractions going on that would grab someone’s attention before noticing that the guy… Read more »

I just had a thought – wouldn’t it be sucky if the EMP knocked out their powers, since they are kind of video game based, and video games actually need electricity to run? True, it’s unlikely, but considering the luck of these two…

Interesting idea, none the less.
