Aluminum Varia randomly out-shiny-ing Maxima. I think it’s cause I sampled colors from a photo of a jagged block of aluminum, so she has a bit more contrast than what I usually apply to Max’s skin.

No, Varia doesn’t have a nigh-skintight forcefield like Max. At least not with this gestalt. Usually she does, like when she gets fire powers from Arianna.

People have asked why the fire extinguishers haven’t gone off yet, and the real answer is because I didn’t think about it until I was drawing the page with Arianna standing in the burning doorway and by that time it was too late to add them in. But the real real answer is that with people like Heatwave flying around the building and who knows what else going on inside, it was decided that the fire suppression system reaction time needed to be tweaked so it didn’t go off 8 times a day.

Yes, that soldier is a terrible shot. I’ve never fired a Kriss Vector, but apparently they have this downward sliding… slidey thing that reportedly helps quite a bit with recoil. Plus the thing is suppressed, and yet he managed a four foot spread from 15 feet away. So yeah, maybe the red team here isn’t staffed by ex-Mossad or anything.

The July Vote Incentive is up! This is an unusual incentive because it started life as a panel from the comic. A few people thought it was a good pose to turn into a nude version, and I agreed. It was originally intended to be a stopgap pinup while I finished the one I’d started on for this month, but I got caught up in shiny skin and various bits of anatomy and alternate outfits so I’ll just leave this one as the July incentive. The advantage being that I have a head start on next month’s so… maybe it won’t be late?

Be sure to enjoy the alternate outfits and lack thereof over at Patreon.

Double res version will be posted over at Patreon. Feel free to contribute as much as you like.
