Here's page 3 of Fusion #9, and Brooder is as forthcoming with direct answers as usual, although X-Pletive seems to be able to read between the lines easily enough.

For those who don't remember, there are several "classes" of SAS members. Gold members are full-fledged SAS members (such as Brooder, Captain Stupendous, Riveter, and X-Pletive). Green members are heroes currently under review but not yet accepted (such as Fusion). Black members are off-the-books members whom SAS will officially deny are members (such as She-Cat).

I have to admit, X-Ponent doing his thing in the background... Does not look intelligent. At all.

In that last panel, I can see the gears in X-Pletive's head clicking over towards "{censored}, it's Fusion, isn't it?"

I like to think X-Ponent's amusing himself by flexing his pecs during the conversation. (Wish I'd drawn it that way now.)

X-Peltive is hinting toward Fusion is he?

If there are Red members,should they be those with a criminal record or something?

Blue members should be heroes who are under the age of eighteen(like Fusion)?

Interesting questions. There have been a few heroes who have either gone from villain to hero or who have had shady pasts before becoming full-fledged Gold members. I don't think Brooder would want (and I'm sure Captain Stupendous wouldn't allow) someone to be openly branded and stigmatized because of past mistakes--the only thing that matters to them is that a person is doing their best to be a hero now. Of course, I'm sure there would be some note of their past in their files--and I'm sure Brooder is intimately familiar with all such details--but, no, there is no such color classification.

Same goes for heroes who are under 18 (and have the necessary parental consent). As established in Issue #2, there's a loophole for heroes who are under 18 and don't have parental consent (such as Fusion).

Thanks for clearing that up...!

I was going to suggest:

Purple members-Mentally challenged alter egos,autism,Asperger's,ADHD,etc.

Pink members-LGBT,shemales or those similar to Yuuki and Magellan's Shakti.

Yellow members-Social outcasts,misfits and those who don't belong ANYWHERE!

Silver members-Those with a military background/training

Bronze members-law enforcement training

The original plan was to have a tiered system of membership, but ultimately decided to have a simple 2 color system (Green and Gold--Black members technically don't exist, so I'm not including them) to basically define a registered/unregistered status for heroes. Why? Well, the simpler the classification, the easier it is to work loopholes into those classifications (and we all know Brooder is all about the loopholes).

Great page, though having fun plugging in the appropriate curse word there

X-Pletive's lines can almost be like Mad-Libs. Imagine the sudden rating change the comic would undergo if the black boxes ever failed.

How will Fusion fit into all of this?
