    > I'm with Lorna: Screw pie!
    Heh. Danger might want to join up with Captain Universe who appreciates pie! ;\)

Ugh. That pie stuff irritated me about Captain Universe, too. It threatens to ruin all pie for me.


      - Georgia -

    > I certainly hope we see more of her.
    No chance she's Inhuman, right? But how likely is it that she's been a mutant that long?

Very likely. No mention of cocoons or anything. And she's had powers for a while, not just recently.

    > Nah. Can't see any bullet being able to travel as fast as Pietro does, so big deal if it can trace.
    Find myself anxious to see how long before the tracer bullet limits are tested. Maybe Tony will/should test upgrade Iron Patriot with 'em if they turn out 1/2 as effective as one can imagine (or one iota as effective as Darkseid's Omega Beams).

It would have to be some special bullets. Tony probably has bullets like that. Pietro can routinely run at Mach 4, and has even outran Thor's lightning bolts on occasion. Your average bullets are only just over Mach 1 and quickly decelerate after firing. A tracer bullet wouldn't be average, surely, but much slower than Thor's bolts, especially if it had any maneuverability. Unless it was continuously making sonic booms throughout its flight, it would have to be subsonic, making it a cinch for Pietro to avoid. And I disbelieve any bullet could outmaneuver Pietro.

I think this was more a case of these bodyguards being ignorant.


      -"How's your wife" concern... heheheh... yeeeah... riiight... nudge nudge wink wink

    > Could have been concern for her, not for him though.
    Yeah, my jump to conclusions reaction (heheheh) was that Snow probably slept with her w/o his knowing it.

Seemed to me like some implicit blaming for his wife's death-- rubbing it in his face.

    > It got unfunny quickly. It seemed to turn into cruelty very quickly.
    Maybe if done meticulously and not obliviously. Huh, was Warlock counting on his fingers the number of ways for an X-man to die? Or maybe it was just more cold, hard truth with an air of black comedy to it - better to be bluntly honest upfront rather than sugar coat going to JGS like a trip to Disneyland? Especially with the extra anti-mutant heat/hate out there these days? (BTW, how... likely was it hearing these Serval Employees sell the place they ditched?)

It was fine until the second time, but even if they were oblivious to it, it was clearly upsetting her, at which point they should have ceased. Warlock, especially, is a emotional being. He should know better. I expect no better from Danger. After all, she did still push a kid to commit suicide once.
