This is it! Marcus is finally free of Demonstorm’s control and is well on his way to bonding with Crystal.There is going to be some serious celebrations next time for the two of them. So, be on the look out for that. I think it’s well deserved and I think everyone reading this week’s comic would agree that it was a long time coming.
I’m not sure what Marcus is doing with his speed powers. He’s not tapping into the speed force as used by The Flash or anything. His powers are from a mutation and not from anything else. So, it remains to be seen if this would be transferred to the real world.
As far as the scene he experienced, it all occurred in the time it took for him to accept Crystal’s bonding gift. I’m reminded of that song by Jim’s Big Ego, “The Ballad of Barry Allen”. It seems quite appropriate for this week’s comic!
Poor Marcus, though. He was asked about his sex life in front of her father. Talk about awkward. I don’t think he was keen on revealing the details in front of ol’ Stan. But, between you and me he secretly enjoyed seeing the young man squirm a bit. Of course Stan approves of Marcus. But, it’s okay for him to tease his daughter’s boyfriend every once in a while. I think he saved face just in time.
Marcus never met Cody and this week we get to see an inkling of what that confrontation would be like. Our speeding friend is definitely not afraid of that abusive jerk and here he proves it. Cody was just a manifestation of Crystal’s fears. Her fears combined with Demonstorm almost did him in. But, he prevailed and now it’s time for the two to bond.
See ya next time for the romantic payoff!
