Inventive crowd control.

BattleStarX, October 8th, 2017, 7:57 am


No! All those poor bags of chips, popped before their time... You're evil, man. EVIL!

Alexis_Royce, October 13th, 2017, 12:10 pm


@BattleStarX: We need a party in here to enjoy them, or at least one very bored person making a day's worth of terrible dietary choices.

HamPlan (Guest), October 8th, 2017, 8:53 am


Wait, is Kinny even looking at the chips? He seems like he would look at the people to make it seem like he is aiming at them.

sharpshot4321 (Guest), October 8th, 2017, 1:51 pm


I wonder. Kinny looks rather innocent/not super villainy right now. Will the crowd think that he is causing this? or Amazing Man?

ElyssaJM, October 8th, 2017, 5:37 pm


Honestly let me just say that Stan in a purple dress shirt and a vest is good quality content And popping chip bags is the best way to get people to clear out

Alexis_Royce, October 13th, 2017, 12:21 pm


@ElyssaJM: Hehe, thanks. I wanted both of them to be in kind of casual version of their super outfits. My brain can't let go of this weird feeling that this fight scene kind of represents the entire comic. Two people who barely qualify as a villain and hero, finally having their first showdown face to face...in a supermarket.

Before Andrew Huang wrote us that amazing theme song, I used to kind of treat BNL's "Second Best" as the theme song for Evil Plan. Because inadequacy, for some reason, is always on my mind while writing this...

This is gonna be a PR nightmare for The Company. And PR nightmares costs money.

Hydra, October 9th, 2017, 8:32 pm


I have to agree with sharpshot and StubbornVirus on this, Kinny doesn't look like he's obviously super powered, whereas Amazingman is FLYING and wearing a mask. This might not go well for either parties involved.

Seth (Guest), October 10th, 2017, 5:05 am


@Hydra: Not go well for either party? That makes this situation sound much more balanced than it is.

At worst, Kinny'll have to lay low, not because Amazingman knows his face (who cares about that loser, right?), but because other supers might review the security footage and get a good view of him. But hey, he's got henchmen to do the grocery shopping for him.

Amazingman, on the other hand, is royally screwed and too dense to know it yet.

Skraeling (Guest), October 10th, 2017, 8:41 am


To everyone who thinks that Kinesis is the one that the regular people are afraid of... consider who it is who's floating, wearing a mask, and looks like a three bit bank robber.

HamPlan (Guest), October 10th, 2017, 8:14 pm


@....everyone really....
So maybe the "Friends" is Kevin is forced to go on the run and winds up joining Kinny? Or at least having to get his help and sees his perspective?
I must say that would be quite satisfying...if unlikely...

abibliboop (Guest), October 12th, 2017, 12:03 pm


@HamPlan I would so very much LOVE for that to happen. Especially, as he is disillusioned by the heroes not being really heroes but more reality stars in massive debt to the entertainment system... and Kinesis is trying to revamp the entire system/world... But, then Alice would be sandwiched in a really awkward love triangle (well, more like having to deal with the puppy love crush more frequently).

Over-de-simplification (Guest), October 12th, 2017, 5:46 pm


@abibliboop
Love triangle?
If you are going with love, then you are probably wrong.
Kevin would not have a crush on Kinny, nor would he have a crush on Alice (he is a good person and wouldn't dare trespass on a preexisting relationship) though he might wind up doing SOMETHING that causes the FRIENDSHIP of TWO currently unknown CHARACTERS to be in mild jeopardy.

abibliboop (Guest), October 13th, 2017, 10:36 am


@Over-de-simplicification
We know Kevin has a crush on Alice (or at least that appears to be the most logical reason for his constant fascination for her) and appears to want to be her knight in shiny armor (or red and yellow spandex as the case may be). Though you are correct, that it may just wind up being an unrequited love much like Will's. Maybe this would give him and the computer much bonding.

Alexis_Royce, October 13th, 2017, 12:39 pm


@abibliboop: When I was first drafting EP, the idea was going to be for a love triangle with Alice in the center. So you're not wrong to see the early chapters as setting that up.

But, well, Alice is nearly a decade older than Kevin. And to really put the kibosh on it, Kevin's gay. Really, he's so uninterested in romance that he's kind of approaching the ace/aro zone. XD I, uh, would like to find a place to say that, but we are getting to the end of the story, and I'm already bouncing a lot of different threads trying to pull the story and themes together. It's my bad for figuring it out so late, but hey, these things happen when a comic lasts a decade. XD

Something I hopefully WILL bring home is that when Alice and Kinesis are on Kevin's mind, he's thinking about his cousin. That supervillains can both cause terrible trauma, and be real people who grew up in families. Revenge just doesn't come naturally to him. He just plain wants to save EVERYONE.

@Alexis_Royce

Oh, good to know (also good to see I was picking up on an original intended vibe even if it changed down the road). Does this mean a possible William and Kevin shipping (even if he isn't after someone, William has a major unrequited love and I'd be happy if he found a way to get his 1's and 0's sorted out right)? Merger of a certain super villain's AI into a certain hero's robotic containment suit? Hmmm... It wouldn't help anything be wrapped up at all soon but could bring lots of fun shenanigans.
8^D

And yeah, the intention with the cousin is definitely visible, especially with her breaking down at the end and begging him to come back futilely when he couldn't hear her... super sad and very well done.

Tying loose threads up is always challenging as characters definitely take on a life of their own and can derail intentions (or at least that happens when I'm writing things... though I've also never had discipline to get anything close to completion).

stkbayfield, October 14th, 2017, 10:22 am


That is really clever power usage. Stan is up against the ropes for the first time we've ever seen and his quick thinking is impressive. I love watching how a character manages to stay afloat when going up against someone who outclasses them and Kevin defeats Stan in both telekinetic and physical strength. All Stan has on him is his wits.

HamPlan (Guest), October 22nd, 2017, 7:52 am


...and access to numerous minions, and also the ability to use MANY items at once instead of 1. While Kevin is floating, he can't do anything but swing his arms.
