Here's page 4 of Alanna's interview with Captain Stupendous.

So, the Riviteer works for Brooder, in their day jobs. ;)

Convenient how these things work out, isn't it? Actually, Dr. Lynda Stark began her career with Lord Industries before making her way to Conroy Tech. Adam Conroy might make some mention of that in his interview (which will follow the next issue).

It makes sense - the only thing more logical is if she (like her archtype) had her own company.

To make/maintain that suit, she needs a substantial income, which means a good job. And being who she is, she'd want a job with an ethical company that she could trust. Even if neither of them owned the company, they likely would be working at the same place, as ethical, successful, cutting-edge businesses aren't super common.

I'd imagine she started at Lord Industries because they made her a good offer, and she thought the public face was acceptable. (Lord does talk a good game.) Once she found the public face wasn't the private face, she'd look for other options. If she mentioned it even in passing to Brooder, she'd probably find a headhunter calling her the next day. (That's assuming he didn't just tell her outright - which depends on how trusting they were of each other's identities at the time.)

Your reasoning is sound, and you're pretty much on target with all of your deductions.

I wonder... If Al (from Mindmistress) ever gets masochistic enough to start a third crossover series, will the Nothingverse get at least a guest appearance? You've said before that he's been talking some ideas with you and others and this seems like perfect material for something like it :)

No talks about the Nothingverse . . . but you're thinking in the right direction.

well done, and you know, i read in a lot of writing books that you should create gobs of back ground story and only sprinkle it on your readers here and there. Not only does it make your characters good, it makes them feel lifelike to the reader and and always wanting more.
EssayBee 10th Jan 2014, 8:27 AM
Exactly right. Having an established backstory only alluded to here and there (and sticking to its continuity) is a great way of giving characters a sense of history (which is particularly important for a series like Fusion where the readers are coming into a world where most of the heroes have been established for some time).

love the macro nano tech escape pod. it would seem lord industries has been given a leg up in the technology department, which makes sense given what they are up to.

Actually, it's Conroy Tech that has done some research on the Captain's ship. However, you're also right about Lord Industries possibly having a leg up. As the Captain mentions on this page, the Creeping Order were "unwittingly set free" by Lord Industries. Ya think Lord didn't get anything out of that discovery? (And this would've taken place a year before SAS was formed, which means it took place before Stupendous, Brooder, and Riveter met, let alone built the trust necessary for Stupendous to allow Conroy Tech to look at his ship.)
DStaal 10th Jan 2014, 5:06 PM
Also, I see that Captain Stupendous probably hails from Alaska. ;)

Nice reading between the lines! I expect this will be talked about a bit in a future issue.

Any more of this interview?
EssayBee 11th Jan 2014, 8:40 AM
Next week will see the last 2 pages of the interview (including a look at Captain Stupendous's original suit). Then it's on to Issue #9!
