Cat-o-Nine-Tales threw a car at my head.
lol nice Dr. Horrible reference
I finally figured out who Dr U reminds me of….Dexter…only older and more “evil”….
Also GO KAT! SHOW THEM HOW US CANADIANS KICK ASS!
You can’t fault Universe or Greta’s nerve. Meeting Spinnerette and Mecha Maid in a place where they were powerless and MM and Spinnerette were at full power…
(Of course the heroes might not be allowed to arrest a criminal who isn’t actually doing anything criminal at that moment.)
ah, but if they escaped from jail, or did other criminally things and werent arrested for it…they could still be arrested on site
Let’s see, she willfully and maliciously turned a cow inside out, so animal cruelty. She hit a man in the face with a cinderblock, so aggravated assault, and theres a 50% they are tresspassing and destroying private property
Wouldn’t work in u.S. courts or, for those that did, it could be pinned on the heroes as well.
Aggravated Assault: The cinder block was after Tiger launched a Spirit of the Tiger and Mecha Maid fired a pair of missiles. At this point, it would be thrown out as self-defense. Further, Greta is throwing cinder blocks. Katt just threw a car. Mecha Maid and Katt would both be up on Assault with Attempt to Kill or just flat out Attempted Murder.
Trespassing: So are the heroes.
Destruction of Private Property: Ignoring that these laws never seem to apply in the superhero universe, I don’t think that was Katt’s car.
Animal Cruelty: I don’t believe that it was said whether the cow was dead or not. If the cow was purchased from a slaughterhouse, then no charge.
And this is all ignoring the fact that the initial attack on Dr. U and Greta was done in a seemingly unprovoked manner in front of the TV cameras. In much the same way that people always believe the worst of police who are caught on camera getting rough without asking if there was any provocation before the cell phones started rolling, people would see the initial attacks before Supercop yanked the reporter out of the way and just see 5 people jumping 2 people who just captured the werewolves that had been terrorizing the city. No, that wouldn’t play well at all with the public.
In fact, I’m kinda wondering if this is a setup to discredit the heroes. If the werewolves escape, Dr. U. can claim that they had the situation under control before the “unprovoked” attack on them.
And that’s why it’s never a good idea to drag legality into a superhero comic.
Actually if you really want to get technical the whole lot would be Assault with a Lethal Weapon.
Boxers and martial artists are considered such in assault cases, so it would make sense that “Supers” would be as well.
Why is it a bad idea? I found your whole deposition interesting. I’ll just be dissapointed if it turns out you gave away Dr. U’s secret plan. I think if he’s still running around free and able to have pleasant chats with the media, he must already have pretty good legal defence, so it’s entirely possible that you are right. Shame on you for having foresight.
BTW, I think the existence of a law protecting the identies of superpowered people during trials shows a bias towards vigilantism. I’m willing to bet that superheros in this state, at least, are given much the same authority as police are even if there isn’t any evidence of this, (though it isn’t mention how Tiger and MM got a call about the accident that created Spins in the first place, I believe they work freelance with the police and were sent by the same, while others may believe that they simply have a police scanner.)
If cops chase a suspect onto private property, are they also tresspassing or are they given leniency that normal citizens don’t, because we’ve empowered them as such to better protect us? I pose it as a question because I honestly don’t know. But ever since The Joker filed a class action lawsuit against Batman, I’ve been curious about heroes and law (and to a lesser extent, psychlogy/philosophy) so please, rip away.
There are actually several Federal Laws in the Spinnerette Universe that protect Super Hero actions perhaps for the practical reason normal human beings in law enforcement would get slaughtered by super villains like Greta without bringing in Military Assets that would turn a bank robbery into World War 3.
I love you guys, especially you Pyre. Such wonderful conjectures and explanations. <3
Speaking of criminal activity, Katt just comitted willful destruction of private property. I feel sorry for whoever’s car that was. Hope they have super hero insurance!
Considering their license plat read “YS SRUS 374″ (Why so serious?), I’d guess they do, in fact, have insurance for “Acts of Super”.
That was the best thought out plan I’ve ever seen. Let’s throw a car at a person who can control gravity. Its fool-proof.
Actually, I don’t think we, as an audience, really understand the true effect of Greta’s power. Everything has gravity, which is an attractive force when referring to real physics.
So, if you threw something at someone who can either increase or decrease a things gravitational influence, then if it’s specific gravity were increased it wouldn’t be attracted to other things, but rather draw them towards it. If somethings gravity were decreased then it’s mass would fly apart like scattered sand.
Maybe I’m wrong but that’s how I understand it from the real world.
As for Greta in this comic, I figure she just has some twisted form of telekenisis.
I have to ask… just once… ONCE! Would it be possible to not have a car thrown at my head?!
but throwing cars is so much fun
gah… fine… just stop aiming at my head!
dont worry bakaneko we all love you
I just noticed, none of the Canadians are wearing masks. Are they the Fantastic Four (-1) of the North, with London as Ben Grimm?
Gravity has an effect on time. I’d love to see something done with this.
I doubt we’ll ever see anything like that, unless you count Greta throwing a clock at someone. Besides… Think of all the catgirls we’d lose if that ever happened! Even I don’t have that many goats!
ah but it might know were to get some
Darn it! Now I really want to see Greta throw a clock at someone, preferably without using her powers. Do you know how unlikely that is?
So would that mean it be possible for someone with gravity powers to control time? Well…to a certain extent at least?
how did i not get involved in this one?!
Kat has the best power
lack of bewbs… sad
most women I fine who are laking in boobs make up in their looks downstairs
i just want some jiggly… doesnt have to be much… a cups are ok… c cups are just right.
Anyone else notice the license plate? YS-SRUS. Why So Serious?
Or I could be shoehorning that…
