Ah, so that was his plan, fool your opponent and steal his wallet/money clip so you have his identity.

This is, of course, difficult to pull off, because of the panic from having your wind pipe shut off. But if you're especially cowardly like Kinesis, going limp was already on the to-do list.

Coloring by Megan this week!

When someone chokes you and you can't escape, pretend you're dead. Most people don't choke people regularily and stop too early.

Choking is a really poor way of knocking people out. Either they're out cold for only a few seconds or they've been given permanent brain-damage.

@Hydra: Knocking someone out is always more difficult than often depicted.
Stuff like chloroform actually takes minutes rather than seconds and in boxing matches KO's generally don't last for much longer then the 10-count, not including daze and confusion from damage build-up.
The human body is suprisingly resilient if you haven't guessed that yet.
There's ofcourse also stuff like anesthetic and morfine, which are quite reliable in putting people under for longer periods of time. Even so, the effect is reached is more by numbing the mind and body rather than complete unconciousness.

There, a somewhat seriously considered answer for a non-serious question. :)

@Deonis: How would you do it then? XD

Rule one of fighting super villains, always keep an eye on them, even when you're sure they're incapacitated. Rule 2 of fighting super villains, never turn your back to them, especially if you're sure they're no longer a threat. Rule 3 of fighting super villains, always assume the villain is a threat, even when they are incapacitated or incarcerated. Rule 4 of fighting super villains, double check on rules one through three.

Please note this not an official list, it's just a pragmatic list I came up with some time ago. And that's only 1 through 4 anyway

Kinny looks like he just got out of an insane Asylum...
Or me when I wake up after 5 hours of sleep...

What are the superhero ranks?
I'd think that it would start out at C or D rank, but since Kevin is the only superhero he gets a quick path to B rank. S rank would be obviously the top tier, but Flagship would probably be a subsection of sorts

Alexis_Royce, September 24th, 2017, 11:24 am

@HamPlan: The Flagship team is populated mostly with S-ranks. D rank is for weak or newly registered heroes. Someone with a lot of power but little tactical knowledge or control over those powers would be put in D.

People with weird or otherwise unmarketable powers are also put in D. If they're amazingly powerful, maybe they'll make C. Remember, The Company doesn't care about saving the world. They care about making money.

Kevin's an attractive twenty-something with a power that effectively grants him flight and super strength. He also got his start in clean territory, so he's The Company's chance to open up Urbane as a new market. Also, they now have him sunk deeply in their debt machine, giving them financial control. This gets him upgraded immediately to B.

If Kevin knew that he were getting these opportunities based on anything but ability and gumption, he'd be appalled. Though, really, he's already appalled. And, maybe, he kinda already knows.

I'm learning an awful lot about choking someone in the comments

Alexis_Royce, September 24th, 2017, 11:14 am

@ElyssaJM: In the past ten years, I've learned a lot about writing comics, drawing comics, and comic readers. And every week, I keep learning more about all three.
