Here's page 12 of Fusion #9, and the Steel Iraq-Nid gives Fusion a hint of what's heading her way.

Also, I finally set up a Facebook page for Fusion (and any other comics I might work on). You can find it at https://www.facebook.com/EssayBeeComicsFusion Hope you can stop by and "Like" Fusion. I also plan on posting some odds-and-ends there, so you may get and advanced look at some art and other projects there as well.

And Steel Iraq-nid shows himself to be the decent type I expected him to be. Hooray for non-douchebag heroes!

I tend to prefer non-douchebag heroes (although Batman's manipulative douchebaggery amuses me), and Fusion's world seems to be a fairly ideal superhero community, so you won't see many douchebag heroes (aside from Major Power, of course).

Hmm. Hard to tell tone in text like this, is she commenting on the perceived futility of her help, or angrily declaring that the Darmarian military is spitting into the wind by going against her?

I'm assuming the first, given her recent pseudo-breakdown, but she also seems to have recovered some from that, so that and her expression (looks like those eyebrows could be angry) makes the second believable.
Zodo 15th Apr 2014, 7:56 AM
I think the spit and wind comment is her opinion of how effective the Darmarian forces will be against her. She might be getting a bit of overconfidence because she really hasn't been challenged by anything she's faced yet.

Overconfidence is the primary fuel for Hubris.

Zodo is right! We need more helpful heroes in this story.

Well glad to see Steel Iraq-Nid is a decent guy, just bound to their rules. Its rather unsettling that the Damarian Govt. will roll out the whole arsenal for RUMORS of a super in their borders, but not to deal with the roving militas butchering and raping their people. Then again I don't think you've specified if these militias are rebels they're ignoring or Govt-backed militias targeting a specific group of Damarians.

Could be anything. Unfortunately these African/Middle East-based militias need very little excuses for what they do.

And I also wonder if this is where Fusion might be in a spot of trouble. She does sound arrogant, if the guesses above about her comment are true. I mean outside of getting caught off guard by a (thankfully)childishly minded hypno villain, she's never really had any trouble with the foes she's faced. Guess we'll see how she fares against an army.

Back on page 22 of issue #7 (http://fusion.webcomic.ws/comics/202/), Alanna explains that it's government-backed militias doing the killing. A government that condones an ethnic purge isn't likely to step in to stop the violence.

Oh see. Thanks for the reminder and link EssayBee.

Time to get a move on then and plan to confront the military away from the refugees.
EssayBee 18th Apr 2014, 11:16 AM
". . . away from the refugees" is indeed key.

Will we meet any more of the Arabian Knights? Hopefully EssayBee will pay some sort of tribute to the Hanna-Barbera version...!

I think EssayBee commented on a previous page that in this issue and the next, we will meet more of them.
EssayBee 18th Apr 2014, 11:08 AM
Yep. Next issue.

Should there be other(fictional)countries that use super powered humans as weapons?

Imagine an army of superhumans?!?
EssayBee 18th Apr 2014, 11:10 AM
Adam Conroy will talk about this a bit in his interview. However, one of the reasons the different superhero groups are international in membership (even though regionalized) is to deter national militarization of supers.
jamoecw 16th Apr 2014, 8:55 PM
well now she at least one god on her side, hopefully that will help the situation.
EssayBee 18th Apr 2014, 11:11 AM
One would hope. But there could be other complications heading our gal's way.
Black Rose 17th Apr 2014, 8:11 PM
Imagine if that incident will force the Darmarian government to get their own super powered beings?!?
EssayBee 18th Apr 2014, 11:14 AM
If they would do that, it'd be much more likely that the U.N. would pass some sort of resolution, perhaps permitting intervention from The Arabian Knights. And if the Knights are allowed to intervene, the Knights could also call in for help/assistance from any or ALL of the other 5 superhero groups. Regardless, things wouldn't go well for Darmar (and is again another reason the Darmarian government was quick to distance itself politically from the superhuman attack on the U.S. embassy at the beginning of Issue #6).
