    Remember, the only part of the law that specifically applies to Supers and powers is the part about vigilantism. Without telling us more of the law, we'd have to use existing law, and unless she's being arrested Krona can generally tell Max to take a hike.

    Many were saying her powers are inherently dangerous, but there's no mention that the law allows arrest for that (and so are Max's, Dabbler's, and quite a few others). So you'd have to look at a specific act that broke the law in order to arrest her.
    Im sure there are all sorts of ways to make the law dance and twist. She wouldnt be "under arrest" she would be "detained" or something like that. Or it could work like a version of probable cause. "Can I search your car?" "No" "Oh you must be hiding something or else you wouldnt care, probable cause." (Lets not get into legal arguments over whether that is allowed) Of course, there is also the fact that she is a part of a super group of the supernatural who dont officially exist, which means short of revealing the twilight council to the world, she technically counts as a vigilante. Which is probably why max seems so confident she can arrange things. Its kinda shaky as far as authority goes, but thats why you have to run over it so fast.

    Bottom line, its either a catch 22 setup of, "You arent under arrest but you need to come with us." "No thanks" "Then you are now a danger to the world around us due to your lack of control over your highly dangerous abilities, you are under arrest." or its something to do with the vigilante excuse. "Due to the secrecy of the twilight council, you are not officially recognized as a superhero, therefore you count as a vigilante for the purpose of detaining you."

    Can we not do this here? It's still going on in the comic's comments, and is as annoying as the bickering about paladins and ettins in the Kickstarter thread the next forum up.

    Want something to talk about? I saw this linked at Grrl Power, and am now terrified. Halo's probably enchanted.

    Malign intentions probably aren't required for Archon's enforcement powers to function. This isn't a mere firearm. The risk from a high-end super is far greater. If someone has the capability to end the world, Archon needs to intervene. The intervention isn't an arrest, nor punitive; it is analytical.

    Could this go in a direction that breaks the concept of just law altogether? Well, yes, technically, it could. A reality where a single being could wipe everything out is, by its nature, anti-democratic. The compromise in this world is the presence of supers such as Max who choose to enforce a democratic order where possible.

    It should of course also be pointed out that to start with gouverments break their own rules all the time. Whenever they think there is the least chance of getting away with it.

    And this is a rather extreme case, where Archon is not certain if someone is a walking nuklear bomb or not.
    That really is enough to override any other civil right, just like people with infectious diseases can be quarantined against their will if they pose a danger of others. And this situation is extremely simular.

    So, a comparison between the last line of today's comic and the supervillains page from way back when shows that there is in fact a villain who speaks in bold all-caps - Dabbler's old enemy "Generic Archdemon Guy". I'm really hoping this is the case, because it means that the supervillains page isn't just gonna run through them in order.

    It could still work if the speaker is immortal, assuming the line is read as one immortal reminding another that non-immortals are a thing. However reading it like that brings to mind an image of someone far more concerned for the well-being of lesser people than a giant elder demon lord guy. So I still doubt it's him.

    I dunno, if Mr. „Needs to see a doctor” still needs those mortals for his plan he might show some concern that they bite the dust while Lady Halfhead procrastinates.
    Even if he doesn't care about them at all it still can't hurt to make them think so while telling Sciona to hurry up already.
    Good minions are hard to get after all and caring about them- or making them think you do -helps keeping them.

    Well, it's not demon-guy.
    I really didn't expect one of Deus' mercenaries.
    And it seems she isn't human.
    According to Sciona she might even be something unique... Interesting.

    True enough.
    Although being immortal doesn't mean you can't be killed. Or worse.
    Just makes it a bit tricky in some cases.

    Okay, I went back to the supervillains page and then bounced between that and the last few pages. The two people in the shadows would be Gunnhildr and Zvonamir, so at least we're skipping about instead of going down the line.

    Its a setup, its gotta be. Either he is an unwitting sacrifice for some reason, or he is trolling the heck out of everyone in order to be underestimated. The odds that there would be an actual bad guy this absurd normally while being powerful enough to include in this little cabal are pretty low.

    Hmm.. interesting point. Though the blog text does say that Cooter is suposed to be fundamentally dislikeable.

    But yeah, he does seem a little out of place in that gathering of monsters. A little clueless with his talk of guns. And a little powerless since he is carrying one around himself.
    Of course unless his power/skill lies in crafting magical bullets. That could be the reason for inviting complete nut like that.

    I don't think anyone would want those pancakes even if you paid them to eat them.

    Thats not unlikely. His comment about a pretty setup and not enough guns make him sound quite clueless.

    And Wyrmils comment to Doc about this guy being awesome make it sound like someone brough in for a purpose.

    As far as I can tell he has it coming.

    And is it just me or do some of his new „friends” look as if they can't wait to be done with his part of the plan?

    Aww dangit. Why cant we be near page 50? Grrl Power IV: Go Jesus just sounds so right to me as a thread title. Im guessing they need him to do things like make it past barriers that would block the supernatural or something along those lines.

    I don't get why people keep saying he has it coming or something bad happening to him would be karma.

    So far, I think he's pretty funny. The author's attempt to make him inherently dislikable is failing.

    Oh, hey. Interesting. There was another update. Let me read that real quick.

    Okay. He's a little bit of a prick. He can't even blame all of it on a quest to avenge his family.

    I'll also say that it had to be pointed out to me that Cthillia was making a Star Wars reference. My first guess was that Cthillia was making the kind of reference that would trigger the homophobia in a stereotype like Cooter.
