Starbolts #593: Heart of Hearts

Hail!

    This week’s comic has a couple things going on. First up is Angela and her conversation with the Centurion Force. At the end of her talk, she was enveloped in a white light. This means that she once again has superpowers aside from her empathic abilities. Angela is no longer overpowered, though. Instead of forcing the truth out of people and turning into a being of light, she now has the abilities that come from being a regular Centurion. This means that she can:

* Fly

* Shoot energy blasts

* Open a stargate

* Has a moderate degree of superhuman strength

    I think that’s more than enough for our angel! She may have been a tad overpowered and this was a good way to scale her powers back some. But, that’s not all! She is now an avatar of the Centurion force and is a Centurion who isn’t attached to any world. This means that she doesn’t need to have the red and blue armor with the bucket. She’ll have an uniform of her choosing. I’ll have to decide what it looks like and I have some ideas running through my head.

See Starbolts #515 for the promise she made to the heart of Illibrata. You might notice a change in the cave in that comic and in this week’s. Well, that’s because when the heart was mended and sent to the nanobots, the area in the cave healed and as a result got much brighter than before.

    Next we see how our fastest man alive, Marcus is doing. He’s doing pretty well all things considered. Don’t get me wrong. There were probably nights where he was very restless. Thankfully, Crystal is on hand to help her boyfriend in any way. She’s with him through thick and thin.

    Still, I wonder how Marcus fighting Codystorm managed to get rid of Crystal’s many nightmares. Was it a coincidence? It’s hard to say. Maybe it’s a bit of both. If you remember during the fight in Starbolts #582, he was fighting Crystal’s fear of Cody and not so much Cody himself. He did something and he wasn’t sure what it was. At least it turned out for the best. She no longer has any hangups and that’s a good thing. 

    As far as Crystal goes, here we see her being more confident than she’s ever been. She’s modeling in a transparent blue gown Yeena gave her. She has found modeling helps her confidence. She needs the confidence if she’s to explore her feelings. Don’t forget. The spells she used to have kind of blocked some of those feelings.

    I guess in a way the two Starbolts are in the same boat. Both need to relearn a few things. Thankfully, they have each other. That’s all anyone can really ask for!

    Man, Danar is gonna flip if he sees those pictures….

See ya next time!

Starbolts #592: Return to Illibrata

Hail!

    Tenera was pretty much relegated to being a taxi driver this week, huh? To be honest I’d rather ride in a space taxi than take a cab around Boston. It probably smells a fair bit better in the shuttlecraft. Anyway, it looks like Sid is finally going to get a stern talking to about how he treats ladies. The Agents and Starbolts couldn’t get through to him. So, perhaps Shrall might. It worked for Tanis! I wonder what Shrall is doing differently than the others are at this point. Either way, he may come back to Earth a changed man! I kind of wonder what Shenra wants him for. We may catch up with him. We may not. It depends.

    Kevin and Angela are finally on Illibrata and now they can visit the heart and update it on everything. How will it react to the sudden change of events? Angela is no longer a threat to the planet or the heart. Perhaps everything will be fine now. Time will tell!

    It does suck when people have to deal with bureaucratic nonsense, though. At least they corrected their mistake. Check out Starbolts #513 if you want to see what incident Angela was referring to! More action is coming next week! 

See ya next time!

Starbolts #591: One Door Opens, Another Closes

Hail!

    Looks like people are splitting off again. Kevin and Angela will be going to Illibrata and we will definitely be following their adventures there as we race to Starbolts #600. What awaits them on Illibrata and will the heart be grateful Angela no longer possesses its phenomenal cosmic powers? I hope so! It looks like those two have taken the next step in their relationship. Things are going well for them. It’s nice to see our couples move on in their relationships. A couple more milestones for the couples may be on the horizon. Stay tuned!

    Tanis is also set to return to Aquarius. Do you think Angela and Kevin will give him a ride home? It’s possible. One never knows. He might just end up taking the bus. At least he’s finally made peace with his mother, Medea and that’s really all he asked for. Note how he called her “Mom” instead of “Mother”? Baby steps, Tanis. Baby steps. He’ll be okay, I am sure.

    Now, I bet you are wondering who that mysterious woman at the end is. She’s been popping up a lot in recent comics. She seems to have a connection with our heroes. Is she friend or foe? Or neither? What could Medea want with her and why are they forming a coven? Patience, true believers. All will be revealed in time. Keep the faith and keep reading!

See ya next time!

Starbolts #590: Faith of the Heart

Hail!

    It’s been a long time coming and finally Angela has the heart of Illibrata out of her! For those who don’t remember, the heart is the source of all the Centurions’ powers. Angela’s father is a Centurion and so she inherited some of his abilities. When Demonstorm performed his ritual on her and transferred the power to him, it corrupted the heart. Things seemed okay for a while until it was found that having the heart of Illibrata be corrupted and inside a Terran would eventually cause great disasters. I have many comics covering this. But, you’re going to want to check out this comic where Angela confronted an older version of herself from a timeline that has officially ceased to exist. Check out Starbolts #481: Arguing With Myself.  

    Basically what just happened was this. The heart has been transferred from Angela to the nanobots. Since the nanobots are logical beings with no emotions, they cannot be corrupted and thus can handle the heart with no issues whatsoever. As a result, their lifespan has probably increased, too. If you recall, their lifespan was cut short thanks to being part of Norad.

    So, what will become of Angela now? Well, she is still an empath and she’s still a Starbolt. Right now all she wants to do is be with Kevin and not have to worry about her phenominal cosmic powers hurting anyone. However, she’s still the daughter of a Centurion. That’s never going to change. Who knows what will happen in the future?

See ya next time as we march headlong into Starbolts #600!

Starbolts #589: Angelic Return

/

Hail!

    Angela is officially back home after training with the Centurions. Now the question on everyone’s mind should be whether or not her powers will be sapped by whatever plan Cece and Medea cooked up. What does their plan have to do with the nanobots, too? These are all logical questions and Sam and I will be answering them as we march headlong into the countdown to issue #600! Other characters might be returning by that point. One never knows.  

    Check out Starbolts #523 if you want to see Medea’s original explanation about how the heart of Illibrata and everything works. Will she lose her powers as a result of this procedure? That’s up in the are. What do you think will happen?

    Either way, Kevin is clearly happy to see Angela again. I’m sure he’s wrestling with a few issues. He’ll be there for her through everything. Count on it!

See you next time when we fix Angela and save the universe at the same time! See ya then!

Oh and we should probably check in on Marcus and Crystal at some point. Mexican food sounds good right about now!

Starbolts #588: Born on the Fourth of July

Hail!

    After this week’s comic I bet you are wondering if Jack really is on the road to becoming the new Iron Eagle. Time will tell. Right now he’s still dealing with everything that’s happened in the past year. The entire Whitefox family has to come to grips with the fact that Sara and Crystal were Stan and Andrea’s twins all along. In fact, I suspect that while Marcus and Crystal are away at the ranch, she is probably doing some soul-searching while he has therapy sessions with Angela. Sara definitely is doing some self-discovery. I think they might all need a breather in order to take stock in what has actually happened. It’s a lot to take in.

    For the most part, Jack seems to be still angry over his old “friend” Snake’s betrayal. It was bad enough that he killed Soldier Six on Discord Island. He’s also responsible for the abduction of the embryos as seen in Starbolts #455. The soldier is definitely not happy here. Who can blame him?

    We do get a bit of a glimpse into what could have been when Andrea talks about Scarlett and her conversation with Jack in the flashback. Scarlett had no memories of her parents as she was brought into “Project: Liberty’s Children” at a young age alongside Jack. They could have been anyone. She latched onto Andrea as a surrogate mother much like Crystal did. If Scarlett had lived and if the embryos were not stolen from Harris Labs, the twins’ lives would have turned out very differently. Count on that! 

       The flashback probably takes place just after Mateo and Jenna were born as they are the oldest of the original Starbolt kids. Jack and the rest of Soldier Six were hyper-aged and at this point were probably physically teenagers.

    See Starbolts #458 to see the outcome of the reveal. Between now and when Jack sees Snake again (And you know he will) he has a lot to sort out. How will confront Richard? We shall see. His actions also impacted Andrea who considered him a son. So, it’s going to be tough for everyone.

   We’ll have time to go into detail soon enough. Tune in next time for a return of an old friend.

See ya next time!

Starbolts #587: The Path to Redemption

 Hail!

    Wow. This week’s comic might have the largest number of references to past comics than any other comic I’ve done in the fourteen years I’ve been doing the comic. Let’s link them all here!

Starbolts #237: The Amazing Dragonfly: Where Garazo helped Tanis shortly after his transformation.

Starbolts #437: Sinister Temptation:  Where Tanis gets seduced by a mind-controlled Shenra.

Starbolts #440: Bringing the Party to Terra Nova: Where Tanis foolishly chases after Shenra and endangers a very crucial mission. 

Starbolts #500: Home of the Brave: Crystal’s first outing as Lady Liberty.

Starbolts #547:Flight of the Eagle: Where Jack kills the monster that killed his grandparents, the World War II era heroes Iron Eagle and Spitfire.

Starbolts #579: Livin’ on a Prayer: Where Tanis’s face gets fixed.

    I think that’s everything and it certainly looks like Medea is on a redemption tour. You have to remember she was a reluctant accomplice to Demonstorm’s villainy. She never sought out to harm anyone and simply wanted to be left alone. However, the dark lord had other intentions. He married her for power and to basically keep an eye on the last void witch in his realm. Her son, Tanis, was not born from a loving union. In fact, he was grown in a test tube and artificially aged to young adulthood. So, if you really think about it….Tanis is like two years old.

    Scary, right? At least he now has his mother steering him on the right path. It should be good for both of them. Their relationship is clearly on the mend here. Medea is also looking to fix Jack after fixing his sister, Crystal. It’s probably a good thing that Sara isn’t on Earth at the moment. She’d probably say she could fix herself. 

    It looks like we might be on our way to fixing Angela now that Cece and Medea have come up with a plan to save her heart and thus save the planet Illibrata from its future fate. That dark future we got a glimpse of back in the late 400s has already been altered for the most part. Fixing Angela now will irrevocably change the future for the better.

    As far as Garazo and Medea go? Yeah. Medea’s not REALLY interested in Garazo. She wanted to teach her son a valuable lesson. And I think he learned it quite well. 

    We’ve got some time before Angela gets her powers in order. Next time we’re going to see what’s going on with Jack. Is he trying to become the next Iron Eagle? What will his mother have to say about that?

Tune in next time and find out. See ya then!
