Here's page 13 of Fusion #9, and it seems, even as Adam Conroy, Brooder manages to manipulate people/situations without their knowing.

Nicely done. I like how he covered the he or she part and how he extended help in probably the only way he could

Will "this hero" accept the full legal support of Conroy Tech?

It's interesting that Brooder's cowl conceals the shape of Conroy's chin. It's a lot pointier than I would have expected, and when a mask is covering the upper features of the face, a distinctive chin can be a giveaway.

I'm surprised that more people haven't put together Fusion's identity. Her lower face and hair are visible when she's not powered up. Her skin color and build are not really concealed at all. Of course, when she's in full hero mode, she glows bright white, and that can make it hard to notice her features.

You're exactly right about the chin. The chin will be addressed later (Issue #12 or later). There's a functional reason for the "extra" chin in the cowl (besides it being a way to throw off his identity a bit).

So you gave Adam Conroy a Jay Leno chin?

It does make me wonder how Fusion was able to identify Brooder as Adam Conroy. The disguise of the shape of his face is pretty good. But to also figure out that he's faking about needing the wheel chair is a pretty big leap of logic.

That is unless Brooder's suit is also an exoskeleton which helps support his body and augment his physical capabilities.

It does somewhat beg the issue of his capabilities. We haven't seen him do much but ... Brood and tell other people what to do. I assume he's had his exploits and backstory which haven't been revealed here, but we haven't actually seen him DO anything yet. We've just kind of taken the parallel to Batman, and assumed he's had a similar career to establish himself.

How Savunn pieced together Brooder's identity will be discussed at some length in a future issue (probably 12 or 13). Needless to say, how she did it is of great interest to Brooder as well.

Much of Brooder's backstory will also come out that issue as well (so I don't want to reveal too much now).

You will get some of the pieces in the Adam Conroy interview that I'll post after this issue, granted it'll only be what Adam wants to be publicly known about his past. (But it is one of the articles Savunn used in her detective work--and I'm sure her sticky notes will reveal some clues as well.)

Opening statement: Your Honour, it is not a crime to try to stop a war crime in progress. In fact, there have been many people over the years in many conflicts who have received honours and awards for doing just that. The defendant is a minor and should be afforded due lassitude for her actions to save lives.

The defence moves for a dismissal of all charges, in exchange for a binding promise from the defendant that she will not return to Darmar until the then-sitting government invites her back or a state of war exists between the Darmar and whatever nation she is a citizen of and she is ordered to enter the country by her government.

*Snicker* Full legal support is the least you could do.

Clever clever. I see what he's trying to do. He's trying to use Fusion's impulsive decision to go to Damar as a chance to really get the debate about superheroes and international treaties looked at again, and at the very least get public opinion on Fusion's side.

Also, I really hope someday we get to see Adam and Mr. Lord square off with their words. I can see those two getting into an epic debate.

so he seems to pull a bit of a slip with the he comment, either exposing that he has more knowledge than he is letting on, or that he is sexist. both are bad things, and would result in flak being redirected towards himself in this issue. very clever (especially since the he part is blatantly wrong).

Looking forward to the Adam Conroy interview and maybe EssayBee should use the name 'Buford Lord' in the history of Conroy Financial(later Conroy Tech.)
