You can’t blame the Vanisher just because this guy is invisible too! It could be Kevin Bacon for all you know!

Pretty sure it is an invisible guy/woman or some very tiny paint drones or invisible paint drones or something like that. At least the invisible villain, if he or she is invisible, is only using it to paint on walls he or she shouldn’t and doesn’t rob, murder or rape people who didn’t saw it coming. Because invisibility.

OR….a cloaking device!

Definitely thinking invisibility or some sort of cloaking tech. But is there magic in this universe? I seem to recall the mention of a Cthulhu-esque tentacle bomb a few issues ago, and that doesn’t sound like a natural weapon.

Granted, this would be a really lame spell if magic existed.

I mean, there are two people with video game powers. There’s *something* that makes weird stuff work without tech too.

I think someone missed the hint the tagger in the last strip dropped. Maybe they ought to look into that journalist he mentioned…

OK, I have a problem with this strip and I’m pointing this out so Tim doesn’t leave this hanging unexplained. 1. The paint is visible. How was it carried to site without being visible? If it’s dispensed from invisible cans, how does it stay invisible in them while it’s visible when painting? (Think how a transparent bottle always shows what’s inside, it doesn’t suddenly make its contents invisible.) 2. If it’s somehow concealed or cloakked in the same way that the perp is, why not keep it concealed until the piece is finished and uncloak it then? Or even uncloak… Read more »

I would imagine that, like in any magical universe, the contents are kept invisible until they leave the container that bears the magic/tech. If I can make anything I’m actively touching invisible, that pertains to the can and its contents while I’m touching it, but once it sprays and leaves the can…no longer subject to the effect.

Not a difficult concept.

Aren’t cloaking technologies generally based on bending or otherwise manipulating light to show what you want people to see (instead of what is actually there)? Not too much of a stretch to apply comic book science to that principle and get what we have here.

I think a better question is: Why isn’t the paint in the air obscuring whatever is invisible. This is assuming that it isn’t some nanotech doing the painting, but instead say, a cloaked android. Liken it to rain hitting an invisible object. The object still has mass, so it still interferes with the environmental factors around it, regardless of light bouncing.

I’m also ignoring the complete possibility that it’ could be a super power which could ignore simple laws of our world…

West Points?
Does that mean the west part of town? Or the west side of buildings?

Obviously its the part of town that used to be owned by the Adam West family, and thats why they call it the West Points!

Instead of catching whoever is doing it, they will probably be framed.

I think you’ve all got it all wrong – it’s not invisibility – it’s the flash or some hybrid of such aka super fast.

But on the bonus side – the guy centered it this time on the window 🙂

I don’t think it’s invisibility or super speed. Given the tech nature of our heroes, my bet is on a person with remote digital paint power. Think about how fast that paint would need to be applied between those reaction frames to get that far.
