Tentacles, sticky goo, it’s all coming together.

I feel like Tim’s intentionally trying to troll every single person who was yelling “Hentai! Hentai, I called it!” on like page 1.

Yeah, hentai tentacles generally aren’t this large … unless the victim is a kaiju or something.

What if all the gooey splatter reforms into thousands of little tentacles…?! 😀

Does being extra sticky count..?
On the plus side, she did want a way down, so stuff that sticks to walls may be of some use.

I’m now imagining her going down the side of the building like one of those toys with sticky hands.

Probably not as this villain using tentacle bombs seems to be his regular MO.

And it’s been giving Captain Prime super powers the whole time too, causing her to get more and more super powered, and the villain knows this because he and Prime are in on it together to make Prime the most powerful being in existence with the tentacle goop and then there’s going to be a reckoning when prime shows her true colors and starts being evil and tries to take over when Lilah, who has a fraction of the same power source comes to save the day!

To be fair, it could give unpowered people powers but unless he pulls a “it only does that to her” or “it made her realise she already had powers” it would be silly for him to kinda be handing them out.

I could see it being a temporary powerup in a sense if she absorbs some energy from em. That could be fun but im guessing Ethan is gonna see her like that and just make a stupid joke.

Knowing H.P. Lovecraft, she’s probably just a host for some extraterrestrial parasitic abomination, of which the mere comprehension of would shatter the mind of any rational creature that tried to fathom it.

Which basically proves that our boy Howie Lovecraft had an anime phase.

Maybe but while bathing in monster blood one needs to look out for leafs that might be on one’s back.

Most certainly, all the warnings do not apply to badass journalists.
If only she was one.

Last panel: full “coverage”, indeed…

These titles frequently seem to have a double meaning (Demolition is the one that springs to mind).

I thought Lilah was better than inserting herself into the story, though. “I got myself slimed by tentacle goo so you don’t have to; here’s how it felt!” would probably be the top byline on Omnitropolis’ version of, say, Buzzfeed. 😉

She did only get hit with goo, right, not the tentacle itself?

Oh, see, I thought the last panel was the 2nd one falling on her…

Well she’s in the thick of it now. Lead the story with ‘Full coverage! We take you into the very Guts of the fight!’ if that camera was still recording.

Peter Parker, move over. It’s Lilah for the front page!

“Intrepid Reporter Covered In Tentacle Fluids!”

Wait… that sounds more disturbing typed on the screen vs. in my head….

I don’t get why does she suddenly want down? She was adamant on seeing the action from rooftops, the action is happening literally on top of her, how “closer” she wants to be?

I have a distinct feeling that “action is happening literally on top of her” is the exact reason Lilah wants down. Badly.

This makes me think of all the weather reporters standing out in the middle of a hurricane. I mean I’m more impressed by the intelligence of a report standing dry and clear to hear indoors behind a reinforced window.
