This is going to end up with everyone around Naomi being an alien or demon or ghost pirate and she's just the normal human girl they took in.

Actually "everyone is special except for your" could be a pretty interesting twist on the whole "adopted child discovers they are the chosen one" trope.

But it would never happen because IIRC this is one of those Bendis comics that (like Ironheart and Takio) he's making for/about his daughters.

So her adoptive father is a knock-off Adam Strange?

His entire design makes him look like a color-swapped Adam Strange. Fin helmet, X-shaped straps on chest... it's not exact, true, but it's close enough to make me wonder if the resemblance is intentional.

It's close enough where if that's not a Rannian spacesuit (or at least Rannian adjacent) it's poor costume design.

The absolutely massive unit of a mechanic is Thanagarian so yeah, her adopted dad is almost definitely Raanian. And her mom hauled off and slapped the shit out of the giant Thanagarian so she's probably something even weirder.

I suspect she might be from Gemworld, since it played into Dee's appearance and that hasn't paid off (aside from tying it into Bendis's Young Justice).

Or Naomi's from Gemworld, and her mom's just a human who happened to marry and alien and adopt a potentially magical infant. (And who, thus, has the backbone to smack around a quarter ton Thanagarian.)

This is a minor quibble, but am I alone in thinking that the father is depicted as being relatively trim and fit in his street clothes, but downright "thicc" in his costume?

Am I doing it right? Is that what the kids say? "Thicc?"

Nah. It's just that form fitting suits are a lot less forgiving of a dad bod than regular street clothes.

"So I could what? Murder you in a cave?" doesn't feel very 'dad' to me and is a bit too defensive/awkward sounding. He should either be, "Nah, no clowns, but I will protect you." *OR* "Buahaha, I will totally murder you like in those movies- seriously kido, I'll protect you, c'mon in."

Kinda ironic, since Bendis is a dad, and one with adopted daughters at that.
