Look for us at Otakon! We’ll be in the Artist’s Alley.
Anyone else wondering what would happen if that thing was integrated into a certain heroine’s suit?
In all seriousity, maybe integrating it into her suit would cause a chain reaction that would keep her alive indefinitely as long as she wasn’t fatally injured or it was damaged/stolen from her suit..
Tony Stark: Nice suit, copycat.
Mecha Maid: … how’d you get here?
Tony Stark: I heard that you were using a suit to keep you alive. I’m just here to tlel you that that’s my thing.
MM: You want to fight pretty boy?
Tony Stark: bring it.
MechaMaid arms her missile launchers, but looks confused as Ironman simply turns his back and prepares to fly away.
Stark: “Oh please. Life support armor is a Stark Industries trademark; you’ll be hearing from my patent attorneys in the morning.”
Tony Stark doesn’t use patents. All of his inventions are trade secrets.
Thus the premise behind the original Armor Wars story Arch.
Yeah, the original was good, but I prefer the seventh one.
You know, the one where Bla- er.. Tiger and the Hulk both have the armor suits and they’re duking it out on the planet Krom?
Oh nnoooes! Tony Stark has sent his army of lawyers to defeat MM through the judicial system!
not to worry I arwedy secured MM with the best lawyer in the universe
Phoenix Wright: OBJECTION!!!
tony would seduce MM first, THEN he would send the hordes of lawyers. (i know she’s lesbian. shut up!)
yeah knowing tony starks the who lesbian thing mighty even turn him on
Stark: You know or time could be much better spent in the bedroom than the court room.
MM: Try it and I will blow your head off and that isn’t an innuendo.
Stark:well, what do you say instead of a bedroom the back of a limo?
MM: i warned you!
and that’s the point where the virus Stark placed on her armor kicks in and shuts her system off.
* a mongoses in a 1920′s gasnter ofit apperse* *in a broklyn acent* Give it up tony she’s cuter than you. It show time
Oh and as for that virus,*puls a sering lable antir viruos nano bots out of my mouth and inject them in to MM*, I pretty good at fixing problems
Stark: this isn’t over! *Aims arm blaster*
Wolf.SPider: *crushes Starks iron shoulder disabling that arm of the suit* Oh I’m pretty sure it’s over.
Stark: of course
*omnibeam ray to the face!!!*
*yawns* that was rather boring. I was hoping you’d at least be able to kill me once in this fight.
how are you talking when you are missing your upper part of your body?
Sorry Deo but that’s Tony…I kind of stole his iron man suit…he didn’t really come out of it in one piece though….sorry.
well, lets stop. neither of us will admit defeat, and i don’t wanna bring into the game the bleeding edge armor(mainly because i know almost nothing about it)
Eh sure why not. I don’t have reason to keep Stark dead anyways.
besides, tony wouldn’t hit a crippled girl; he’d have to put down his drink to do that!
oh come on we’re stopping already *hold a pare of jericho missiles in each arm* Oh don’t wory I remodifides these so that the despense a mild form of the jokers laghing gas which will leave a persone gigiling like a little girl for 12 hors straight
BANZAI!!! *jumps off a roof holding six ATBIP’s* Bada boom, baby!
Make way for the future, where toasters *are* Cherenkov-Kirby reactors!
*gasp* Superpowered toast?
…The future’s sounding pretty good right about now. :3
All hail our crispy, buttery masters!
POOOWWWDEEEEERRRREEEEED TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOASSSSSSSST MAAAAAAAN!!!
P.T.M.: Quick, man, cling tenaciously to my buttocks!
Pope: ….both of them!? ::……cling!::
Me: hey spiny hand me that
Me: *runs away* hah now I can complete my altimate clank
Shame on you Mongoose. something that could maybe save Marilyn and you’re hogging it for yourself.
Hey, mongoose! Ya forgot the web still attached to it. Yoink!
hey I didn’t foget actuly Ive been working on a special clank the will alow mm to live a full life
So why haven’t you given it to her?! Oh my word! you Fiend!
Methinks it’s mostly because it’s not done, yet. By the way mongoose, that reactors to unstable, I wouldn’t put in your machine, in the future, it explodes just as the treatment is finished, thus killing MM forever.
*gives Mongoose more stable reactor*
@ Tode Jager because you guy aren’t letting me finish it.
why thank you Profsssor Now once I get this instaled I can begin testing my Gene/tisue renewal and inhancing clank
Oh and Professor this new reactor it generats the cherenkov-kirby reaction rite because that will bee esential for my clank to work, because you see I also have been studying this reaction and I baleive that by combinding it with the properties found with in the water of the The Dyne, I beleives that I biuld a device that can both repare damage DNA which will cure genetic disorderes and repare damage tissue, I begain designing to help a friend with Muscular Distrophy but I’m sur it will helpp MM as well
That clank is not gonna work. just telling you now.
ah but we won’t know untill we try *mad scientist gleam*
No I’m telling you it want work. the pieces are good but they don’t go together. here put this in instead of that old fashioned flux capacitor.
Give the components to MM…. I’m sure she’d figure it out!
It just occured to me reading back over issue 5 real quick (ok skimming over it), Heather’s initial transformation was instantaneous but that was because she was in a pool of genetic goo most likely designed to speed up any effects of the ray. We may not yet see what has happened to Spinnerette in this arc because what every the GIR (ha! Invader Zim) did has not fully spread yet.
That goo was a vat of stemcells
the same supply of stem cells that was…
“unfortunately my stock of stemcells was lost in an unfortuneate accident some months ago.”
owned by Dr. Universe. and was partially used and the rest destroyed in the lab accident and explosion that gave Heather her powers four extra ams.
Dr Lambha is Dr. Universe’s former student and
the research grant for the genetic infusion device had to come from somewhere.
good guess is Dr. Universe was secretly funding all of Dr. Lambha’s research.
also explains a good amount of the dialog in the story so far.
Genetic Infusion Reactor: WHYYYYYYY?! WHY MY SPINNY?! I LOVEDED YOU SPINNY, I LOVEDED YOU!!!
Spinny: sorry GIR our relationship was doomed from the…
GIR: OOOH Doom. I’m gonna sing the doom song. Doom de dooom doom doom.
So THIS is why Sahira winds up growing extra arms a few chapters ago!
huh? the book only chapter explains why and we gret another look at it again a couple chapters back.
It’s also hard to tell when the reactor was ripped out. Without it the shot may have been harmless.
That would be the boring reAson it didn’t work .
GIR: GIR! Reporting for duty!
Spinny: Oooooh he’s so cute! I always wanted to ask this! AHEM!
“GIR? What does the “G” stand for?” (excited troll face)
GIR: I DON’T KNOW!!! WEEEEEEE HOOO HOO HOOOoo!!! WEEEEEEE HOOOO HOOO HOOO
Little Green Man With Large Red Eyes: That’s not GIR! GIR, get over here!
Deranged Little Robot: *bursts through the wall* WHEEEEE!!!! TACOOOOOS!!! TACO! TACO! TACO! TACO!
Little Green Man With Large Red Eyes: Make silence! NOW!!!
Spinny: That’s not nice.
Little Green Man With Large Red Eyes: AHHHHH!!! A HUMAN!!! WE MUST ERADICATE IT!!! QUICKLY, GIR!
Deranged Little Robot: *eyes glow red* yes sir!
*Sahira grabs deranged little robot.*
Sahira: Ooohh, soooo cute! He’s so adorable! I will hug him and pet him and call him George.
Wolf.spider, I think the liquid was a sort of conductor that was required for the process.
it didn’t look like the beam hit spiny directly more like it just hit the ground in front of her and the shock wave knocked her back. Hey guy I’m trying out a new recipe, goat tacos
Sorry, Krow, but I’d rather freeze in the Stygian depths of the lowest of Hell’s levels before I ever go back to Otakon. I know my ban is up, but fuck them. It used to be fun, now it’s a pile of corporate horseshit run by soulless automatons that don’t care about artists or anime, just dollars.
I mean, seriously, thrown out because a (normal, not spiked or bladed or anything) pocket watch in a cosplay outfit is a ‘weapon’? Fuck that.
Ah, Buzz, good timing! Quick, kiss Sahira’s booboo and make it all better.
and then realize that Buzz has super powers!!! He’s been hiding it the entire time!!!
During his bad boy phase, he used to kiss the girls and make them cry. Now that he’s reformed and is a good guy, he kisses the girls and make them high.
High as in deliiously happy as though in a drug-induced high.
Hey, Dr. Universe’s goggles do something (besides look cool)!
I don’t get why she’s confused in the 3rd Panel. Didn’t she help build the thing.
I think, she helped to clean laboratory, make coffee for doctor and such. Also, Heather clearly isn’t the best student.
Yeah Heather seems to be there more for general maintenance work. She probably helped haul in the boxes, tighten a screw or bolt on the machine now and then but didn’t get to learn much about the actual ray.
Didn’t he specifically say earlier that he kept her well away from it this time, so she couldn’t wreck it again?
pluss she tends to be ditsy sometimes
Ok… I must admit, I wasn’t attentive enought before and thought Spinny’s powers were CK-based. Well, now I seee that plot twist could be very simple here. ^^;
Is Heather really just a magical spider-gitl from now? Whicj makes her mahou shoujo spider… Hurm… hurm!..
I’m now imagining Heather undergoing a sparkly transformation to turn into Magical Girl Spinnerette! complete with upbeat J-pop and ribbons.
Mr. Webby is her magical guide animal thing.
she just a mutated huma being
Exectly! That’s EXECTLY that I’ve been thinking of.
And after that out heroes will need only to found some wierd battle pet-monster, and their Anime Legue would be complete. ^^
>>Is Heather really just a magical spider-gitl from now? <<
Just a magical spider girl? That's like saying Superman is "just" a guy from an exploded planet. Sheesh.
Well, it’s not much change, that’s what I’ve meant. She could transform into giant evil spider, into giant evil spider-Sahira, into sworm of evil Sahiras, even into straight girl who isn’t superhero or nerd!
Ummm, Supes is just some guy from an exploded planet.
it just due to bad movie logic he has incrediable power on earth
I wonder if Superman is stronger under a yellow Sun than a red Sun…how strong would he be under a blue sun?
His cells may not absorb in the “blue” range. But if that’s the case, imagine if he landed on a planet orbiting a pulsar. All those X and gamma rays would turn him into a DC version of Dr. Manhattan.
Superman Prime wore a suit that pumped him full of solar radiation and he had to have a Deus Ex Machina dropped on him to be defeated.
So basically since Dr. Manhattan was Alan Moore’s version of a Superman like hero and Superman is DC’s….he’d be like Superman.
Except Watchmen was published by DC so… both Dr. Manhattan and Superman belong to DC.
Bah. it was published by DC but Alan Moore is above DC. HE OWNS YOU! ahem sorry…taht doesn’t usually happen quite so easily…
Alan Moore is a whiny spoiled brat. Also, Dr. Manhattan was based on Captain Atom, not Superman. Watchmen was originally going to be with actual DC heroes, but it was to out-of-character for most of them, so Moore made himself some new versions.
yeah DC only baught the rights to produce the movie while whatchman continues to be an independent comic like this one
DC published the comic itself. To quote Wikipedia: “The series was published by DC Comics during 1986 and 1987, and has been subsequently reprinted in collected form. Watchmen originated from a story proposal Moore submitted to DC featuring superhero characters that the company had acquired from Charlton Comics. As Moore’s proposed story would have left many of the characters unusable for future stories, managing editor Dick Giordano convinced the writer to create original characters instead.” There were ownership disputes when Moore left DC, but DC paid to maintain the rights to the comics and characters. DC did offer to give Moore the rights back in 2010, but he refused when they stipulated that they wanted to make prequel and sequel comics, which they are doing anyway against his wishes.
Dr. U……has a scouter..OH GOD!!!! PLEASE NOBODY MAKE THAT JOKE!!! FOR THE LOVE OF JEBUS!!
But for lol’s I’ll get us started
Dr. U: The Cherenkov-Kirby Reactor…it’s OVER…..(you guys fill in this part)
there. It’s over there. Nothing more, nothing less.
..LOADED FROM THE STRESS AND GONNA BLOW!
Dr. U: IT’S OVER 9000!…..Oh wait…..never mind! Had the darn thing on upside down. It’s actually 0.009%.
ah who cares power levels are pretty much pointless after the vegeta saga
You mean after the Frieza saga. or half way through Frieza saga.
@Moonshadow: If it read 9000 when upside down, wouldn’t it be 0.006?
ooh hes got you there
If it read 9000 when upside down, then it would really be OOOG. Wait, what?
42 upsid down would look like either 7b or Zb
sahiras starting to act like her normal self now
I’m not sure this is why Sahira gets six arms in Chapter 5. In Issue 8 we see her absorb Spinny’s DNA from Mr. Webby and grow some, so I’m thinking she already has cherenkov-kirby? or perhaps, since i can’t read the whole of 5, is there something i missed?
I think Heather was irradiated from her GIR bath, so Sahira got second hand mutated. Like Ritchie did in the third season of Static Shock.
No Fanatica you didn’t miss anything, you’re correct, she already has the chernkov-kirby reaction and the ability to copy a supers powers just by getting in contact with their DNA
Love the Calvin Klein reference
Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t Heather help BUILD this machine? Oughtn’t she already know it runs on Cherenkov-Kirby radiation? Or is this the big reveal on that?
Actually, in Issue 6, they were battling in an area that boosted CK reaction superpowers 5x, but Spinnerette got no benefit. If the machine that gave her her powers operates CK radiation or whathaveyou… shouldn’t she have? Spinny then says she wishes she got bitten by a magic spider instead. Magic and CK reaction mutations powers are the same thing? Mutually exclusive?
Very confused now.
It’s true that Heather doesn’t have the CK thing, but Sahira does…
So maybe this ray will power Sahira into a super power absorber being that get powers from whoever she is near?
here’s your answer http://www.spinnyverse.com/2012/06/20/06202012/
And what answer am I meant to find on that comic page I’ve read through 5 times, Mongoose? Is is somewhere in the 181 comment posts? Because you’ll need to be more specific than that.
I know you meant to be helpful… but you weren’t. ^_^;
I just realized this: Spinnerette’s original costume is almost identical to the one worn by Ultimate Tarantula, complete with six arms. No wonder Marvel sent her a C&D.
Marvel was threatening to sue because of it similarities to spider-woman
I guess Should keep my eroded girl costume I was working on under wraps then.
Drider girl. it was part of the deal I made with Alexis for sparing Heather a few chapters back.
Even so, take a look: http://images.wikia.com/marveldatabase/images/0/07/Peter_Parker_%28Tarantula%29_%28Earth-1610%29_0001.png
This reminds me of a line from Spaceballs…
You’re ugly when you’re angry.
Why that line in particular
Your web comic is awesome. Your website sucks rancid donkey balls.
Kind of big and bulky for use in a Mechamaid mechanical suit. Would have to be designed on a smaller scale for her to use.
