Here's page 19 of Fusion #8, and it seems Brooder's "mistake" may have other repercussions.

Also, the print copy of Fusion #6 just went up for sale at IndyPlanet.com. You can order it directly from www.indyplanet.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=9140 (or click the "BUY Print Copies of FUSION!" link at the top of the page).

Is Riveter referring to Fusion?
EssayBee 5th Nov 2013, 9:23 AM
Yes. The "her" Riveter mentions is Fusion.
Black Rose 5th Nov 2013, 11:40 AM
Just as long no one on the SAS were plotting to be rid of Fusion. Who would want to get rid of her?
Xade 5th Nov 2013, 9:30 AM
oh dear, sparks are flying almost as fast as Fusion want to get there :)
Phantomskyler 5th Nov 2013, 11:48 AM
Yeah, Riveter isn't buying it.

I dunno Black Rose, Brooder is a hardass but he doesn't have anything against her. He's a cold tactician. He probably thinks someone with Fusion's powers would be better used on her own instead of getting tied up in the red tape apparently surrounding SAS.

But I do wonder if Brooder is actually letting her cause an international incident for some other ploy or gain.
EssayBee 5th Nov 2013, 1:04 PM
Don't forget, Brooder already has his "Black Members" like She-Cat to do his dirty work and ignore the red tape. (See pages 5 and 6 of Fusion #7 for a quick rundown on Black Members.) You think he'd groom someone like Fusion for such a thing?
Phantomskyler 5th Nov 2013, 8:20 PM
Yeah, Brooder seems like he's setting her up to join his covert ops group. He obviously believes someone with such potent powers like Fusion shouldn't be restricted by bureaucracy like the SAS.

I don't think Brooder has the right to manipulate Fusion into a position where she might not be able to join the SAS (a real dream of her's) But I think this excursion to the refugee camp is probably going to make her rethink of joining a team.
Black Rose 6th Nov 2013, 6:43 AM
Yeah! Good point,besides she needs to be on her own! ;)

The comment Riveter makes can be taken two ways.
mithras131 6th Nov 2013, 6:22 PM
Yay, I finally get caught back up! Anyway, I do think that Riveter is concerned for Fusion, but I think it is sometimes easy for us to forget that, for all her power, she's still relatively young (as an unnamed someone pointed out in Xover Kill). And while she does have a lot of power, there's more to what she is going to be doing than just beating up bad guys. I'm not too worried about Fusion in terms of power or how she's going to come out the other end physically, though even the best and most powerful of heroes can have blind spots. Psychologically and emotionally, however, is a vastly different story. Anyway, great page! Looking forward to more!

Some of the points you make will indeed be addressed next issue (and others in later issues). But I think you have a good read on Riveter. And we'll get input from some other folks next issue as well.
Tolrick 7th Nov 2013, 12:49 AM
Just as an interesting side note, Riveter's eyes are fully and clearly visible, yet it's her mask that displays the expressions.
EssayBee 7th Nov 2013, 7:23 AM
Yeah. With the exception of Grasshopper, everyone's masks have flexible brow lines. (I'm more concerned with expression than realism.)
DStaal 7th Nov 2013, 4:43 PM
Hmm. Dramar is on the Sudan/Chad/Libya border.

Not a lot of resources there in our world - but there *is* an ongoing genocide...
EssayBee 7th Nov 2013, 9:05 PM
Yeah. It certainly isn't a vacation spot in either of our worlds. And you're right about the apparent lack of resources (which is probably why other governments are slow to step in in Darmar). However, Darmar--as we learned in Issue #6 from Dandy-Lion--does have some apparently significant, albeit secret, Drainomyte deposits.

I knew there was something going on when Brooder kept saying "you're not in SAS" and everyone else kept saying "SAS can't intervene over there."
As the Nostalgia Critic said in his review of Cop And A Half: "No badge, no law."
