One day Crystal will be “Science Girl”. She’s got an aptitude for engineering. She just needs to apply herself a bit more and show more confidence in her work. Perhaps her “science girl” skills would be useful in the predicament she, Marcus, Smith and Holly now find themselves. I wouldn’t want to be stuck in a mausoleum for an android!
I think a bit of a background on Pegasus is in order. Pegasus was an Agent of S.T.A.R. like Stan, Andrea and even Phil. Like Norad, he was an android and was a prominent member of the team. Pegasus was unfortunately destroyed by Terra Nova and his remains were brought back to the Department of Metahuman affairs for study. Some of his parts were used in the construction of the android Starbolt we know as Norad. The rest is indeed history.
Though, it should be noted that Phillip Smith aka Bullseye was once very good friends with Kevin’s mother, Charlotte as they were both on the team. Charlotte passed away as seen in Starbolts #469: The Call.
The elder Agents getting the spotlight is the theme of this year. We’ve gotten nuggets of backstory for several of them and more are on the way. It’s always a good idea to learn more about the legends of the past before we move forward. The Agents may be Earth’s mightiest heroes. But, they are people with deep backstories!
Tune in next time as we delve into the background of Norad’s “father”, Pegasus!
