Here's page 18 of Fusion #8, and we cut to SAS's orbiting space station (last seen back in Issue #2). Think Riveter buys Brooder's explanation?

You really think Brooder's that conniving?

Brooder making a mistake.

What? You think he's lying? I can't imagine.

What will become of Fusion after this?
No longer eligible for SAS membership?

You'll find out . . . but it does tie into why groups like SAS were formed in the first place (see my reply to Phantomskyler below for a bit of a teaser).

Pft. Screw the SAS. No offense to them but if they won't protect innocents from a bunch of lunatic genocidal militia groups just because those useless idiots at the UN won't allow them, Fusion's better off on her own.

Just because those cowards at the UN are complacent with leaving refugees and genocide victims to rot doesn't mean the heroes need to be. I really can't wait to hear why the SAS or other hero groups follow the orders of such an impotent group as the United Nations.

After this issue, I'll be posting an interview with Captain Stupendous (2nd part of the series of interviews that started with Dr. Electric that posted before this issue), and the reason for the formation of the various regional supergroups around the world (there's six of them) will be explained a bit. Then, after Issue #9, I'll post an interview with Adam Conroy, who will explain in much more detail the reason for the "regionalization" of supers.

BTW, speaking of regionalization (slight spoiler), next issue we'll meet one of the heroes from the Middle Eastern/African superhero group.

Can I take a wild guess and say it's partially because the UN is trying to prevent supers from starting World War III?

Our friendly Captain steps in in Darmar, they (or a nuclear equipped ally) nuke the USA, everyone nukes everyone else, nuclear winter.

Not a wild guess at all. And what you're saying is a very big part of the reason for regionalizing supers--nations want their sovereignty protected, and such incursions can be viewed as acts of aggression. That's a big part of why the Darmarian government was quick to distance themselves from the superhuman attack on the U.S. Embassy back in Issue #6 and blame the attack on "rogue, nationalistic supers."

Yeah Really...

And Brooder would say that with his typical poker face.
G.Johnson 29th Oct 2013, 3:01 PM edit delete reply
Of course he made a mistake. It was discovered, right?

That's something any parent to needs to ask for clarification on. Is Brooder sorry he did the thing, or is he sorry he was caught, you can't just settle for sorry. That's why the other similar character appeals to kids, and maybe lawyers.

don't think that was a mistake

Ohhh, I just realized that could be Brooders passive-agressive response to Riviter cluing in Fusion to the break in at Lord Tower a few issues back.

I don't buy it. I mean sure, that may be a very small part of the reason, but other people are already seeing Fusion as Brooder's protege.

Thing is, I think he likes Fusion, and knows she's in a position to do something about this. This would imply that he also knows Alanna well enough to know what her emergency call was going to be about, in order to decide to route it to Fusion in real time...

BTW, all of these comments and conversations about character motives/thoughts are the stuff I love to see!
