Here's page 30 of Fusion #14, and Adam delivers some surprising news to Savunn.

For Fusion and Blue Banshee's encounter with Meltdown, see Issue #12 (Blue Banshee's arrival is on page 25: http://fusion.webcomic.ws/comics/391/ ).

For Wandering Whistler's death, you have to go waaaay back to the beginning of Issue #4 (page 2, to be exact: http://fusion.webcomic.ws/comics/73/ ).

If Wandering Whistler was around pre-Revolutionary times, then maybe he might've turned up during the Second World War...!

Naw, during the 30s & 40s he used to host a radio program telling spooky & crime stories ;P

Well, The Shadow is one of the inspirations behind Wandering Whistler (and I periodically listen to a number of the old Shadow radio shows for inspiration).

If you've seen the Wonder Woman movie,she was in the First World War.

Why Massachusetts,unless that's Blue Banshee's home state?!?

Wandering Whistler is the one who wants support. And there be dark things in old New England that the Whistler fights.

They don't call them the birk-shires for nothing. There's a heap of old problems around the eastern end of the state as well. Both pre and post revolutionary and civil wars.

New England? Dark things? A mysterious immortal? Now why does that make my brain immediately go "Lovecraftian mythos, ahoy"? :)

SteinarB--I can't comment on this, because some things are just unspeakable.

I suspect wondering Whistler is one of two things. 1) the relationship is like fusion, where are the Whistler takes a host willingly and passes to another host or a trainee host upon the death of the original. Kind of like maybe the Green Lantern power. 2) every so often, as opportunity happens he dies and resurrect himself like the Highlander. this way he can restart his life in a new location, for an alternate take on it, there's a really awesome science fiction novel called "boat of a million years" by Poul Anderson who posits that a very small number of the population is born immortal but that the gene is recessive. they aren't fully Immortal however they don't age and they have a super strong immune systems. they can still die through misadventure or murder.

I should mention that the blow has to kill them outright they can recover from wounds that don't kill them outright. for instance none of them can remain circumsized for long.
EssayBee 12th Oct 2017, 11:26 AM
Heh heh. Circumcision. Reminds me of Christopher Moore's hilarious Bloodsucking Fiends series where the vampires are reborn as their best, perfect selves physically (including a reversal of circumcisions), as well as no longer needing other bodily functions (as lamented in the chapter "The Last Poop"). And we know Savunn has read the series since one of the books was spotted on her nightstand back in Issue #3 (http://fusion.thecomicseries.com/comics/64/ ).

I hope this book is among Savunn's bookshelf, it's titled Seduction of the Innocent and I hope someone here knows what that book is about..!!!

Sometimes I wonder about you Rose.

As an avid comic book fan, I have absolutely no interest in that book. It is possibly the most tripe filled pile of propaganda ever written and I would think it safe to presume Savunn is more than intelligent enough to know this. Which makes it an equally safe bet she wouldn't own a copy.
EssayBee 16th Oct 2017, 9:57 AM
Savunn would probably be more likely to have an omnibus collection of Tales from the Crypt and the stuff Seduction said was corrupting kids.

So what kind of immortality does WW have? Wolverine-level regeneration would give him a really long lifespan, as well as a constant need for protein and minerals. Vandal Savage is also really hard to injure or kill. Grrl Power's Achilles is totally invulnerable; nothing can damage him, even standing in the middle of a huge explosion. A "god," like an Olympian or Asgardian, is difficult to injure and ages really slowly while he/she has followers who provide power from worship. We have seen various forms over the years; what will WW's version be?

You'll likely get an explanation next issue after meeting Whistler.
