This is the worst page of this comic.
The Light Bulb Doesn’t Go Off
This page doesn’t make it clear that Meteor and Shield both have the same idea at the same time. There needs to be another panel where the light bulb goes off just before they start speaking to each other.
This is basically the critical moment of this comic, and I flubbed it.
Gross. Gross. Gross.
The gratuitous panty shot in the last panel is gross and something I 100% regret.
I’ve bounced back and forth about how much cheesecake I’m comfortable with in this comic (as it’s super effective for advertising and bringing in readers), but this goes way way too far.
It’s insulting to Shield as a character, completely at odds with the current story beat (Shield is giving it her all to keep her energy field up), and it channels the worst of how the comic industry portrays women.
The easy thing to do would be to re-render this panel and fix this grievous error, but I’m going to leave it up as I feel it’s important not to hide my mistakes.
