Stormwatch 8 - and this is why we can't have nice things

Apollo got abducted by some weird alien vortex thingy to another universe (whateva) and Midnighter is worried. He even has this lovely conversation with Jenny.


Aw, that's sweet, right? And brings back all those memories of the old Authority, where Midnighter, cruel and vicious as he is, would never harm a child. He loves children, he breaks necks of people who endanger children, that one time when he had to kill a child to save an entire planet from destruction and save Jenny, he agonized about it for weeks! That's why so many of us love him; he's bad but no ev....




I'm not even angry about it, it's more of the "that is not happening, this is a INDOCTRINATION PROCESS hallucination, they will wake up any minute now and Mindy will be Mindy again. Yay! YAY!!! YAY DAMMIT!!!!!!!

Anyway, Jenny returns on her own because ~Jenny and she tells Mindy this:


Who wants to bet that the decision will be Midnighter becoming her father? You know, not because he want to because he loves kids, but because she made him.

I've changed my mind, I'm actually angry now. /rage/ If you need me, I'll be here, in my little corner on Tumblr, reblogging this forevery:

But just from her dialogue... nothing she says is anything that a typical 10 year old would say or do. I think that part of her powers is that she simply matures quickly or has a greater than average intelligence. She understands quantum theory, how to set a bomb (and is okay doing so), and can hold a fully adult conversation.

That's a matter of intellect, not maturity. Having worked with some brilliant scientists (never mind watching The Big Bang Theory) I can assure you that one does not relate to the other.

I found it mature that the 10 year old didn't vaporize him on the spot for trying to kill her.

Eh...they're not really having an adult conversation. Midnighter says as much a few panels later--"The fate of the universe is at stake and you want to talk about BOYS?"
