The fact that the snark scientist is wearing a labcoat is just brilliant for some reason.

But Tippy Toe with a little pair of squirrel binoculars might top it.

As a Finn, I can't express enough I hate the name Aikku.

Well, according to väestörekisterikeskus it is an actual Finnish name. About twenty people with it, born from '40 to '79.

I think it's mostly a middle name, though.

Yeah, but it's audibly an older name and is mostly used a nickname currently. Which is why it drives me nuts that they are calling a young woman that, especially since her last name is about as Finnish as you can get.

A good writer could make something interesting out of it (What kind of a family would name their young child that?) I'm not hopeful that anybody will bother though.

If it's any consolation I want to punch someone whenever Hank Pym's first wife comes up (the name Maria Trovaya doesn't fit her Hungarian ethnicity at all).

Plunderer and Blue Streak might be the best part of an already great issue. Although really, I loved the entire bit with Doreen and Aikku here.

I appreciate that Parnival got to keep some of his inverted personality.
