How do you keep Jiggawatt from shooting lightning? Take away her credit cards. Wait, that’s not right.

When Thor gets an STD, he gets the thunder-clap.

An atom walks into a bar an asks the bartender “Have you seen an electron? I left it in here last night.” The bartender says, “Are you sure?” The atom says, “I’m positive.”

A neutron walks into a bar and says, “How much for a beer?” The bartender says, “For you? No charge.”

Ok enough of that. Jiggawatt can do just about anything involving lightning, including obviously turning into it. Not necessarily a unique power for a lightning wielder, but usually when you see it the have to travel through telephone wires or something. I’m not sure if Jiggawatt can do that actually. I always envisioned her arcing through the air, and she can move a considerable distance before she has to bounce off something like a cloud or just connect with the ground again. I guess I need to add teleporting to her badge on the cast page, even though it’s not quite teleporting. It’s more like really fast super jumping that can also be used as an attack. Like it combines super jump with Bison’s Psycho Crusher. (Or Vega’s, if you’re reading this in Japan.) She can’t go through most things like walls (unless she’s just tying to blow a hole in it) unless they’re moderately conductive like a squishy person.

All these one hit scrubs that keep getting knocked down were supposed to be in the parking lot shot, but I ran out of time to draw them all, plus I hadn’t quite designed everyone yet. The plan was always to add these guys into that shot, and bump Maxima’s estimate from 30 to 40. I don’t want anyone thinking more villains are showing up in the meantime. A lot of the minion scrubs are just that, and may not ever show up in the comic again, unless I show them incarcerated or if there’s a prison break or whatever, but a few of them will be seen again. In fact some of them had larger roles they were supposed to play in this fight, but their parts got cut because I don’t want the battle to be 100 pages long. Gauntlette, the gal with the purple fist on this page was one of those. She would have been labeled as Tenti-Gal by Leon, since she can wrap her energy thing around her so it looks like a big tentacle. You can actually see her on the parking lot page, though she’s mostly obscured by Hex’s lasers there. She would have fared much better against Jiggawatt’s attack if she was still wrapped up all snugly in her tentacle, but there’s always next time.
