Well I've had some rousing e-mails from people about Niki's Powers. According to Wikipedia she does have super strength. However the only "extreme" show of super strength was in an online comic on IMHO, such comics are non-canon... :) Though it probably means that the writers do intend for her to have super strength, and she'll probably manifest it in greater feats later in the series. That said, I stand by our comic, as of now it is unclear, and the whole schizo thing is pretty dumb.

In other news, thanks to people who wrote in and told us about the Stumble Upon AddOn for Firefox that has been directing people to this site. It's reassuring to know it's not just bots out there. It also explains why this site has about 70% firefox users.

Schizo != Super Powers

As Scott mentioned, we've been debating Niki's powers on Heroes for a while now, and I'm convinced she has the suckiest powers ever. First off up to this point, she really hasn't shown Super Strength. Some people say that she's thrown people into walls, or killed them. I contend that such feats while uncommon in real-life, are on par with "normal movie female behavior", ala Ellen Ripley or Sarah Connor.

What stinks is that she was teased with having the best super power of all. Originally I thought she was going to be able to create Madrox like duplicates from mirrors. Instead, she apparently has absorbed her dead sister, who sometimes takes over her body. Wow great, that sounds like a Super Deformity, not a super power. Even if she has the strength of *two* women, (which is what one would expect since she IS two women), it pales in comparision to Mind Reading or Seeing the Future or Phasing or Radioactive Blasts or altering the fucking space-time continuum. Niki is the Aquaman of Heroes.

What it boils down to is that Niki either has schizophrenia or a severe case of PMS. She doesn't even have boobies going for her since everybody just lusts over the underage Cheerleader instead.

On another topic, we are over a week late because Mike spent all week playing Knights of the Old Republic 2 instead of drawing the strip. I guess on the plus side, I think he did a great job of drawing a bunch of different panels, instead of repeating one panel over and over again like we did last week. Also our traffic has basically tripled or so this month and we have a hard time figuring if these are real hits, or just some crazy bot. If you've started reading the strip in the past month, drop us an e-mail and let us know where you got the link from, or where you heard about us.

Save The Cheerleader

Ok, so we've been debating about whether or not Niki has super strength in Heroes. She rips arms off of people, right? I guess, in any case, what female doesn't have it while suffering PMS? And it's not at Hulk levels either. Wait, I just had a great idea for a comic. Planet PMS. Or did they already do that with Y: The Last Man?

Sorry again for the grayscale comic. I have finals, so we will have a color version up Monday or Tuesday night. Or later if we get lazy. No promises.

I liked the original Onslaught story... 10 years ago. Onslaught Reborn is inane. Why did they have to bring him back? I swear, the only thing that fuckin' Scarlet Witch and House of M didn't bring back was Hypercolors. is a digital parody comic about Comic Book Characters.
