vonzinzer whoa

Perhaps the Jägers shouldn't be attacking the Big Mama Weasel! She might be on board to control the soldier wasps. Or maybe they're her food supply ...

And don't any of those people carry firearms?

i"m hoping they just keep those around for research, otherwise it would indicate that one or more version of the Other has made contact with the geisters.

Re: Wow...

I'm hoping they can be revived. They are constructs.

Well, looks like Lu just openned a big can of woop-ass... and by that I mean a hive engine on Castle Wulfenbach. I wonder how long it will be until the entire population of Mechanicsburg is Wasped. Looks like Zola will be the Heterodyne Heir after all.

Also, just want to point out that, yet again, despite of his scheming, intelligence, and charm, Lucrezia is always one step ahead of him.

How predictable.

The one city likely to be able to deal with a wasp problem is Mechanicsburg... Heck I could see them serving wasp royal jelly as a local delicacy.

Then again, Tarvek's on the ground with knowledge of his own experimental anti-wasp formula. Gil may have deliberately pushed Tarvek off the castle for precisely that reason, along with helping Agatha in general.

Methinks it's time for Agatha to show up with battle-axe in hand and her spiffy new armor.

Tricky... we KNOW Agatha can control those things but doing so publicly might give people the idea that she's the Other -- or that she's a strong enough Heterodyne to Save the Town... here's where Tarvek really comes into his own, I think.

And yes... wasp royal jelly, indeed..!

Posted by: lightningnettle (lightningnettle)
Posted at: June 8th, 2012 03:47 pm (UTC)

What's wrong with them thinking she's a strong enough Heterodyne to save the town?

Posted by: momcat09 (momcat09)
Posted at: June 8th, 2012 05:39 pm (UTC)

That would be the ideal -- but if Agatha was seen to use the Command Voice on the wasps, that might give the populace some cause for concern... I guess if she was waving some Sparky Weapon of Wasp Detruction about while using the Command Voice, thst'd sway the thinking toward Strong Heterodyne and away from concern that she's the Other..

As usual, this plus around $2.50 or so will getcha a cup of coffee most places... :)

Well they did crash land right next to the museum of armor where she's getting dressed. I'm betting Agatha and command voice will be here right soon to save the day.

Don't treat your weasels like a dog Dog DOG, you give 'em Weasel chow!

I usually love to go back and lovingly find the little details. -- not gonna do it with this page. The poor little weasels.

Oh, that's what it says.

I thought it said "Weasel Show", and I was wondering why they were taking the time for a pet show in the middle of fleeing for their lives.

If you look closely the door to the big weasel room has slightly rounded corners, while the door the wasps are coming in from has sharp square edges. Different parts of the airship with the little weasels in the middle.

Not to me. If the round window is north, then the ingress is west and the bug door east.

Tarvek and Captain Vespiary run through a corridor. Given the way comics (and films) are "cut" and "edited," there's no reason to assume there are no additional doors along the extent of the run.

Unless a film or comic goes out of its way to show you "everything" about layout and floor plan there's no reason to assume you've seen everything. And if they do go out of their way to show you everything, it's best to then suspect they have a sleight of hand they feel quite spiffy about that's based on that demonstration.

There are a few situations where a true plot hole can be deduced from what's been shown. In this case, though, nothing has been very securely ruled out.

Okay. So, Tarvek needs to have the Jaegers fall back by squads, laying down cover fire with their incinerators, and Agatha needs to get into the powerloader and get ready to fight the Queen Mother in the docking bay....

Wait. No. Sorry. Wrong movie comic....

if Mother Queen scented those wasps, no wonder why she was so enraged and uncontrollable by people.
But seems she only made it worse afterall.

Or maybe wasps run through exactly because mother was distracted by jaegers ?
And weasels only suffered (yet) of crash-landing?

okay because cute things CANNOT DIE I will point out that there are a bunch of sparks in the area. Every single weasel will be revived. They can rebuild them. They have the technology.

...you know, it occurs to me that somewhere around here we have a large squad of mecha-cats. Imagine if Otilla's 'kittens' could also wasp-sniff....

Last I noticed Otilia and her minions couldn't leave the parameters of Der Kestle...though, granted, the exact parameters of the Kestle seem a bit blurry. But in any case, she had to leave Gil at the gate. Pity, though: I'd love to see them smack some wasp around.

That brings me to think that jaegers have good noses too. They must have fought wasps and the shamblers before, wonder why they don't smell the difference? Maybe it needs the cybernetic parts on the weasels and if you added them to jaegers you could get wasp sniffing jaegers?

I think it's because Jorgi and his buddies are a lit-tle busy at present. Now I read the upcoming action thus: Tarvek deals with the soldier-wasps-at-hand only to have a bunch more come boiling out of that room. Jorgie & Crew burst through the door, probably riding Mama Weasel, HUGE fight ensues and (no earlier than Friday, possibly Monday) Agatha and her scantily clad Amazons arrive In The Nick Of Time to rescue 1)Tarvek 2)the Vespiary Captain 3) all the cute little weaselpillers and to really annoy Tarvek who "was doing just fine, thank you!" Then he sees Agatha's new 'armor'. "Duh-uh? Duh-duh-duh . . . "
