Starbolts #581: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

  Hail!

    There is a lot going on this week! First we learn that it’ll take more than just sexy times to cure Marcus of his Demonstorm infestation. Marcus and Crystal will have to partake in a mystical bonding ritual which should solve his problems. It’ll also bring the two closer together in terms of their relationship. It’ll be well worth it. Crystal just needs some training and she’ll be back in two shakes to help Marcus with his problem.

    Marcus should be well taken care of with Mateo, Aquita and Sirak helping him out. He just got another boost of oxytocin. I think he should be okay for now. But, he can’t keep this up forever. Crystal will have to act fast if she is to save Marcus. And you know that woman is driven to save her boyfriend. Whatever it takes. 

    Now we come to Tanis shaking the box Demonstorm’s stored in. I have to say it is cathartic. The whole scene is also a way for Medea to bond with her son. I feel like Medea was never really given a chance to bond with Tanis because of how his father treated him. Technically speaking he’s only a few years old even though he has the appearance of a young adult. Demonstorm and Braun artificially aged him after all. Tanis finally has the chance to vent out his frustration. I think there’s a chance for both victims of Demonstorm to bond now that the tyrant is out of their lives. We’ll see on that front.

    It is nice to see Medea and Cece being catty with one another. They are two sides of the same coin and I think Cece might be taken aback by Medea’s strategies. Medea wants to atone for all of Demonstorm’s misdeeds and I think Cece will understand that in time.

So much stuff happened this week and we got more in store for next week!

See ya next time!

Starbolts #580: The Danger Zone

Hail!

    This is the week we learn more about Medea and I think it makes the Starbolts’ old villain a great deal more sympathetic. Think about it. She was forced into a loveless marriage by a man who probably killed her sisters, her fellow void witches. She half-hardheartedly took part in various conquests. She never set out to be evil. So, she was forced into all those things by a man who would rather conquer a planet than be focused on other pursuits. It’s really no wonder she acts the way she does. I get the feeling she’ll stay in that gray area. We shall see.

    So far she’s opened up her backstory to Crystal and I think that might score points with her. In fact, now that she knows that she also talked to her spells, she might feel a bit differently. 

    Time is really of the essence now that Demonstorm’s voice is getting a wee bit louder in Marcus’s head. Will sex really be the cure-all here? I’m thinking “No.” There’s going to be something more to it than that. Just sit tight. Medea has a plan!

    I hope everyone’s been liking the ’80s song titles. It’s building up to something. I mean Marcus and Crystal’s song IS an ’80s song, soo….I think you can guess where I’m going with this.

Starbolts #579: Livin’ on a Prayer

Hail! 

    If you’re wondering if Medea is always on, the answer is clearly, unquestionably, undoubtedly, definitely yes. Medea is always “on”. The woman clearly has issues and we’ll be exploring why in the next comic. The Starbolts often referred to her as their “Rita Repulsa” from Power Rangers. However, there’s more to her than meets the eye. Is she more than just a very sultry void witch? Yes. Of course she is. I wouldn’t write a character like this unless there was a valid reason for her behavior. You might want to get tissues, though. You aren’t prepared for the feels that are coming soon.

    At least she seems to be making amends for her past misdeeds. She offered to help Marcus with no strings attached. She changed Tanis back to normal after being transformed into a humanoid bug-man in Starbolts #195.  The witch has been performing some extraordinary acts of kindness as of late. Trust me when I say that the Starbolts are a bit cautious and probably will keep her at arm’s length.

    Still, how awkward was it to have a former villain embrace Crystal RIGHT after commenting on her appearance. She sensed she was a void witch. But, that doesn’t make her comments or actions okay. I foresee her butting heads with Cece when she comes to Earth. Cece is a more reserved void witch. Medea is not. There’s gonna be some drama coming with those two. At least she’s willing to help Marcus. However, there may be a method to her madness.

Stay tuned!

Starbolts #578: Power of Love

Hail!

    Crystal is clearly a woman on a mission and throughout the writing process and creation of this comic, I had Huey Lewis’s “The Power of Love” in my head. The lyrics that pop out the most definitely relate to this week’s comic are:

“It’s strong and it’s sudden and it can be cruel sometimes. But, it might just save your life!” 

     I think that aptly describes what’s going in this week’s comic. Marcus is in trouble and the only way to keep Demonstorm at bay is the power of love. I know it’s corny as hell. But, work with me here. Demonstorm is a being who is incapable of love, right? He doesn’t understand it and has never felt it. He sees it as a weakness. So, the love Marcus has for his friends and his girlfriend, Crystal, keep him going. It’s the only thing keeping him from having Demonstorm take over his mind and body.

    Demonstorm is still trying to play on Marcus’s fears and the team is doing their best to keep the speedster’s hope’s up. Here’s hoping it works! Without the kissing!

    Next comic will see the return of Medea. What has she been up to since the last time Tanis visited? We shall see! See ya next time!

Starbolts #577: Take on Me

Hail!

    Crystal seems to be very confident this week. Her plan is not without merit of course. It remains to be seen if Medea will indeed help the Starbolts. Stan seems to think she will. He’s been doing everything in his power to help his student free himself from Demonstorm’s control. Stan even enlisted the aid of Cece and unfortunately that doesn’t seem to be enough at the moment. Hopefully, she can save the day. We shall find out soon enough.

    Marcus’s love for Crystal seems to be the only thing keeping Demonstorm at bay. Crystal’s gonna have to ensure his defenses are up by any means necessary. She’s been pretty darn confident lately. Hopefully, she doesn’t come across as overconfident. There’s something to be said for her willingness to do whatever it takes for her love. She knows he would do the same for her. 

    Firaxil and Sara are taking a quick vacation away from the drama on Earth. Think of it as a well deserved mini vacation. They’ll be back sooner than you might think. Keep an eye out!

    For now it’s back to Demonsk for Tanis and Crystal. What will they find? Will Medea be willing to help? They last saw her back in Starbolts #523. That was very…interesting comic. Here’s hoping she doesn’t have a “grown-up headache” this time.

See ya next week!

Starbolts #576: Shadows of the Night

Hail! 

    There’s a lot to unpack this week so let’s get started. I’m trying something new with this body possession thing. There’s a cliche where someone is possessed and he or she doesn’t tell anyone right away. Marcus isn’t that person. Marcus WANTS Demonstorm out of his body as soon as possible. He isn’t too keen on having him around and you can bet that he will make his stay in Marcus’s brain as unpleasant as possible. How? By doing the exact opposite of what Demonstorm tells him to do. Thankfully, the lord of Demonsk doesn’t have access to Marcus’s higher brain functions, yet. All he can do is watch and whisper lies in his ear. It would take time for the possession to fully take hold. So, the Starbolts are on a race to stop him from completely taking over their friends’ body. 

    Crystal is prepared to do whatever it takes to get her boyfriend back. What this means is up in the air. What will she intend to do? Well, the answer will come in the next few comics. I won’t spoil anything. But, now Crystal is confident and Marcus wants Demonstorm gone.Crystal is right. She’s been through hell to get to this point and you know she’s going to fight like hell to get him back. He called her unpredictable. He hasn’t seen anything, yet!

    I picked Pat Benatar’s “Shadows of the Night” as a title because it seemed appropriate to what’s happening with Speedy. Take her hand, Marcus. You’ll be alright! Demonstorm is clearly the shadow of the night here. He has no concept of “love” in his heart. He’s going to learn that he definitely picked the wrong Starbolt to possess!!

See you next time!

Starbolts #575: Need for Speed

Hail!

    There’s a lot of stuff to unpack in this week’s comic isn’t there? Let’s go into details, shall we? Yes! Let’s!

    First up we have Takashi and Kaori. Takashi seems to be okay after his ordeal. He’s at peace with his relationship with his adoptive sister and she is, too. It’s going to take time to shake off what he went through. I have no idea what he was tinkering with. I just figured I’d put a giant robot head on the table. It’s just a very random thing. =D

    Next we have Firaxil and Sara talking about her clones; Sola, Velocity and Psyche. I think Firaxil wants closure in regards to Velocity and Psyche since they died in his arms. Sola might be another story. I suppose they’ll be picking up the conversation when they get to New Inobus. They’ll be going there for a quick vacation in order to take in everything that’s happened to them so far. From learning she was a Whitefox to becoming a void witch, Sara has gone through so much in a short time. She needs to breathe!

    Poor Marcus has a lot to deal with with Demonstorm running through his head. Here’s hoping that is resolved soon. I’m gonna have to do a huge romantic payoff for him and Crystal once this is over. It’ll be a long road. But, I am sure they’ll be fine!

    For an unexpected twist, we have Cece and the Dastara’s butler, Walter. That’s a bit of a surprise coupling coming out of left field. The way I see it Walter met Cece and she appeared to be a very pretty young woman. He had a crush and Walter being the gentleman he is felt it was improper to proceed since he was a bit older than she appeared. Well, now the tables have turned a bit as SHE is considerably older than him. It’s definitely a strange tale.  We may see more of that relationship down the road.

    For now, though, the Starbolts have a friend to fix. Four people went into that room and only one got messed up in the head. Here’s hoping they can fix the team’s heart!

See ya next time!
