    Once again, yay Alice.
    Definitely expect that some disagreement will arise with regard to what to do with Luke. Be interesting to see where the various FA's will stand. As of now, we've got Caz indicating that she'd be for doing away with him - I read her as speaking for Sirkka as well, but I'm not sure - and then there's Kirk and Karl, who have already shown willingness to kill their own when certain lines are crossed. Kait's general attitude would suggest that she might be on board for some dishing of hard justice. I'd imagine Miki would protest, certainly against outright execution, and maybe mental neutering as well. Arkady's obviously done a number on Luke before, but as for killing him? I dunno. Jack's with Kirk and Alice in the Luke-Beat-Down-club, and has shown a healthy amount of disdain for him. KK, I can't really pin down. Memory's fuzzy, have we seen her interact much with him? Connor's usually very compassionate and calm, and I could see him resisting the notion of killing Luke.

    Wild card really would seem to be how much the simple fact of Luke being "one of them" weighs against his crimes.

    ETA:
    Week was pretty good. An old friend from college, who's lived in Vancouver the past 2 years, and hasn't been home at all in about a year was visiting the old country, and Tuesday evening a handful of us got together to see her. It was probably the best time I've had in months, just plain sitting and talking and laughing, reminiscing about old times and telling each other about the stuff we've gotten up to since then. Great evening.

    Also, with June 17 gone by, I'm officially 24.

    Also, it was nice to see Alice right in there in the middle of the telekinetic mayhem, rushing to cover the other girl. She's got a temper, but she's all right.

    I'm also sort of hoping new girl gives Luke the clap.

    I'm wondering what exactly Luke did to the girl he was raping. It wasn't really mind control, from what I saw. It looked more like he'd done a kind of psychic lobotomy on her and was using her as a human blowup sex doll.

    It's interesting cause I just can't see the pleasure in that... seems like it's not worth pissing off the other FAs for.


    Anyways I'm gonna go make a wild assumption that Luke isn't actually going to be killed. I really doubt it with Conner around, lol, that guy.

    Jumping on the Alice bandwagon....heheheehhe good going and I do appreciate your resolve.
    Two; count them, two FA's getting their power off. Exciting times coming for dear ol' Luke. Can you say 'the tree of woe' ?
    He will find post dry London a very bad place for a psi-raper.

    I am alive yet another week, had the prosthetic replaced on Wednesday; that was total joy! Not.

    Well, I guess it depends on whether Luke's a grower or a shower.

    He was probably going a little flaccid at that point, that’s what a bin lid to the face will do to a mans love muscle.

    I can't see Luke being killed, not by the group as a whole, anyway. The FA had to have a board meeting to discuss saving total strangers that were trying to kill them. If they didn't kill Mark, and they wouldn't kill total strangers with malicious intent, wanting to kill Luke will only be more discussion. Like most "Democracies," I see the FA arguing it, and trying to find a moral solution, meanwhile someone (or two someones, Kirk and Karl, I'm looking at you) might just take action on their own after everyone agrees that another exile will suffice.

    So much for all of us who were theorizing that we weren't seeing what we were seeing.

    excellent episode, can't wait to see if Alice does somehow get her hands on Luke

    I've been thinking, as Arkady says somewhere the FA know little of the limit to their powers: possibly Luke discovered how to make limbs grow (bigger)? I still find myself quite shocked.. and I'm no stranger to comics.. ^^

    When you think about it Alice is pretty hardcore, she just seen what two FA's can do and she still fancies a crack at Luke on her own, she is a proper manc that one.

    Also she gets a little dose of his mind fuck powers there too nice one girl

    What's scary and cool about the whole thing is "Freakangels Business". It sets them apart from the other Whitechapleros as much as their powers and archetypal personae. It's almost Olympian, the way they've set up their own morality. Obviously, the other non-Luke* FA's do right by the people, but it's almost like how I take care of my cats.



    *Is it coincidence that "Luke" and "Loki" are near-homophones?

    I doubt it. It looked more like he telekinetically "punched" her in the throat.

    I like Alice more and more as this comic goes on. She's a great character.

    right. well. cock then.

    agreed with Fauxhammer, I think this is maybe my favourite ep yet.
    And not (just) for the cock.

    Those frames showing the freakpressure building, overwhelming and unstoppable, were brilliant. Underlined the gravity of the situation nicely. Amazing art skillz to give such a strong impression of an intangible, non zap-boom power. I swear I felt my ears pop.

    Final frame should come with audio of an ominously tolling bell attached.

    Freakangels: Squishing rapists into the pavement since '09, fuck yeah.

    I can't help but think that not all the FA are going to be of the same mind on this one. Will be interested to see how it plays out, who will counsel mercy, or at least, an alternative to immediate execution? My money is on: not Kait.

    Great episode.

    eta: I'm not sure I've mentioned this before, but: yay alice!

    Also: cock

    On the topic of big cocks; A penis that has just recently lost its erection will still maintain a lot of its girth. Considering that, it's not really that spectacular. Take that as you wish. Either I'm trying to big myself up, or I'm making a valid observation, or I'm just not willing to let a rapist be complemented on his rape-tool. ^_^
