... it's been almost 2 weeks with out a single word spoken. I wonder how long that will go. It does make for a quick "read" of the comic but they say pictures are worth 1000 words and I'm wondering if Tony Stark is missing one of his suits or is this a Roger Original!!

In the discussion of the Oct. 2nd strip, we talked about whether the window should be behind the computer, but nobody mentioned the view. That looks like a lake, or other body of water. Shouldn't there be a town out there?

... we're seeing it at an angle, if we were stood in front of the desk we'd see the town, or at least part of it.

i did however toy with the idea of knocking up a spreadsheet to work out from the timings as to when in Doc's evening this is happening in relation to the 12:06 time-stamp of this happening .... and then i decided i was thinking about things too hard and that i really should do some work instead.

What Roger's wearing is neither part of an "Iron Man" suit, but at the same time neither is it all that original.

Had I left Roj in his usual shirt and tie, everyone would be wondering how he's generating the energy fields. I didn't want him in actual armor, partly because readers might think he's battling other people in armor, rather than robots, and partly to make him more 'exposed'- IE, less obviously protected.

But, I planned on giving him some weaponry, but I didn't want him carrying a big heavy gun of some kind. So it was either some kind of big clunky gauntlet type thing, or a hand-mounted blaster.

I'm admittedly a big fan of Iron Man, so I decided to go with the palm blaster concept and the "glowy thing in the middle of his chest" trope (which in this case is not an "arc reactor", it's just "shorthand" to let readers know he's wearing some techno-gadgetry, and not, say, using some heretofore-unspecified mutant power or something. )

Doc.

Wait, you mean they all can't shoot energy beams from their hands?

... I guess it's just the ones in my neighborhood, then.

Comfy enough inside the lead-lined suits. <n/t>
