First rule of Moon Girl: Nobody bothers with Moon Girl.
Yeah, there was a power problem, but this could be something psychological with Johnny. As it is, it doesn't bother me at all as this issue just hit every note just right.
And seriously.. Moon Girl:they are throwing all this junk out. MTiO: it was placed in storage by Parker Industries. Which should we believe?
If its psychological that would be an interesting twist. Otherwise it was the only part of the book I did not like as its a worn out old device. Or, maybe I'm the old, worn out one. Which is entirely possible! Been reading this stuff for a long time!
