Woah, but at least Marcus is there to keep her from doing something stupid

Poor TeeDee...

...I just hope he can calm her down before she turns against him.

PS: I really like the seemingly suspended bottle :)
velvetsanity 20th Aug 2013, 6:12 PM edit delete reply

The bottle's hang time was only a split second, Teedee was moving quick. Notice that by panel 4 it had dropped out of the camera's view.

edit: nevermind, the bottle would have been out of the camera's view to the right side regardless
cattservant 20th Aug 2013, 6:17 PM edit delete reply

Too revealingly quick.
mjkj 20th Aug 2013, 6:39 PM edit delete reply

Yup, that is why I said seemingly *points up to the post*

...though I am missing the crash when it landed on the floor - should be in panel 4 or 5...
cattservant 20th Aug 2013, 6:57 PM edit delete reply

Probably synth-glass and just bounced.
mjkj 20th Aug 2013, 7:33 PM edit delete reply

Possible, but then there should be a thud or something instead.
cattservant 20th Aug 2013, 7:39 PM edit delete reply

Maybe it landed on horny-boy's foot or such?
anonymous 22nd Aug 2013, 9:42 AM edit delete reply
even when it's made of normal glass, a beer bottle is designed to be shipped. it would't break that easily
Centcomm 22nd Aug 2013, 9:47 AM edit delete reply

Correct when I tested I used a corona light bottle and dropped it from chest high onto a paving stone in one of the tests it was half full of water and it simply bounced. only hollywood beer bottles shatter at the drop of a hat :D
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 10:42 AM edit delete reply

the bottle is made of synthetic glass/plastic on tests a plastic bottle hitting the ground really doesnt make much noise so the effect was left out :D
velvetsanity 21st Aug 2013, 10:45 AM edit delete reply

Well, it *is* still full, so yeah...if it were empty it'd be loud as hell.
ranger_brianna_new 21st Aug 2013, 12:43 AM edit delete reply

From doing something *more* stupid, at least... :P
Sheela 21st Aug 2013, 5:26 AM edit delete reply

Considering how long time it takes to say those sentences, the bottle should have hit the floor by 4th panel.

But, who cares about the bottle .. it's all about her fist and his face .. and the fact that Marcus is FAST.
Fast enough to catch TeDee out.
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 10:43 AM edit delete reply

yes Marcus IS fast. hes got a few more surprises too...
cattservant 20th Aug 2013, 6:11 PM edit delete reply

Hope he grabbed her high enough up the tail to get some leverage!
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 10:55 AM edit delete reply

this is one kitty that bites scratches and uses LAW rockets!
cattservant 21st Aug 2013, 1:33 PM edit delete reply

It's a touchy maneuver all right!
If you grab too far out, they'll turn and claw.
If you grab too far up, they'll pop their anal glands!
Stormwind13 20th Aug 2013, 6:13 PM edit delete reply

Well we get to see that Marcus is QUICK. And pretty strong, since TeeDee didn't throw him into the idiot.

Actually, I don't think she is much over the line. Idiot deserved a punch in the face for not backing off when TeeDee told him to. Now if she was going into FULL strength punch, that might have been a little much.
velvetsanity 20th Aug 2013, 6:17 PM edit delete reply

Who says she wasn't throwing full-strength?

As for not throwing Marcus, that's partly a matter of leverage.
Stormwind13 20th Aug 2013, 6:26 PM edit delete reply

True, but if she had been going full out, I think she would have been able to toss a small car and done damage like being HIT by one too. So I'm guessing some governor is in operation on TeeDee. :-) I mean, TeeDee is MUCH stronger than a human being her size would be.

I've seen people catching people like Marcus did TeeDee, and if the punch thrower was serious they normally pulled the catcher around. Even if the catcher was somewhat bigger the physics seem to work out that way.
Don B. 20th Aug 2013, 6:59 PM edit delete reply
With the mood Teedee has been in lately, I wouldn't be surprised If that punch was intended to kill. Even if it wasn't, I'd lay odds that dude would need facial reconstruction even if the punch was governed in some way. She knows what she's doing and doesn't NEED superhuman strength to do massive damage. Whatever he skeleton is made of, it's far stronger than bone.
Mister Black 20th Aug 2013, 7:11 PM edit delete reply

Trust me on this (famous last words, I know)...nobody, human or android, I mean nobody, wants to get into a slugging match with Marcus.
Stormwind13 20th Aug 2013, 7:20 PM edit delete reply

I had little doubt Marcus was dangerous, I mean, duh he is a combat specialist and still alive. And not on his first mission, so he has learned SOMETHING about surviving hairy situations. :-)

Still I don't think TeeDee is a cream-puff either (actually, we KNOW she isn't a cream-puff, as Gavin found out). Also, CentComm found out too now that I think about it.
Sheela 21st Aug 2013, 5:29 AM edit delete reply

While there's no doubt that both Marcus and TeeDee packs a punch, I doubt she would have killed him straight up.

Hurt him, sure .. but not killed him.
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 10:55 AM edit delete reply

marcus has some density about him :D
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 10:44 AM edit delete reply

she would have one shot killed him- she was useing a full power swing . marcus's combat software told him that. he MIGHT have let a normal swing go...
Sheela 21st Aug 2013, 11:49 AM edit delete reply

Oh dear .. that's another sort of case then.
I was not of the impression that her selfcontrol was that much out of wack.
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 11:51 AM edit delete reply

yep.. the siuation is now at critical mass..
Sheela 21st Aug 2013, 11:54 AM edit delete reply

She's gone nuclear ?
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 1:06 PM edit delete reply

headed for PLAID :P
Sheela 21st Aug 2013, 1:20 PM edit delete reply

oOoooohhhh ... she has matched luggage too ?
Stormwind13 21st Aug 2013, 4:39 PM edit delete reply

LOL. All the AI's in the area are in danger! Plaid drives them crazy! :-D
Stormwind13 21st Aug 2013, 5:52 PM edit delete reply

I just noticed on panel 4 that Marcus appears to have pulled her punch BACK (seeing the little white lines there)! :-O

That is INSANELY strong, if I'm seeing that right. I mean, if TeeDee was going for full power punch and he not only stopped it but pulled it back... Just WOW.
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 6:10 PM edit delete reply

was wondering if anyone would notice that little detail. and yes she was going full bore.
cattservant 20th Aug 2013, 6:15 PM edit delete reply

Her SLTs are deploying too!
highlander55 20th Aug 2013, 6:32 PM edit delete reply

Yes! I noticed them too! Speaking of her top, It always looks like it opens up on each tit for breast feeding!
cattservant 20th Aug 2013, 6:53 PM edit delete reply

Don't want to burn through the hatch covers!
velvetsanity 20th Aug 2013, 6:33 PM edit delete reply

And they give me the impression of being pierced
highlander55 20th Aug 2013, 6:36 PM edit delete reply

Noticed those too velvet, those are her front sites for the SLT's.
Sheela 21st Aug 2013, 5:32 AM edit delete reply

Considering how prominently the SLT's are in the first panel ... I mean, that's not a "little boy" chest .. so I'm wondering if Dr Silver inflated them a bit .. on her request ?
After all, bigger turrets = stronger lasers ?
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 10:45 AM edit delete reply

LOL shes got ... a girls chest its just a low A cup. and she tends to wear constricting shirts. or armored ones.
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 10:45 AM edit delete reply

damn it.. - I really tryed to remove that. *sighs*
Sheela 21st Aug 2013, 11:50 AM edit delete reply

You tried to remove her SLT's ?
I'm not sure she'd agree with that.
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 11:52 AM edit delete reply

just got tired of everyone pointing them out >_< :P
Sheela 21st Aug 2013, 11:54 AM edit delete reply

But .. but .. they're FUN to point out. >_<
cattservant 21st Aug 2013, 12:49 PM edit delete reply

Oh noes!
No areolaear disarmament!
Say it isn't so!

[We need to nip this trend in the bud!]
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 1:07 PM edit delete reply

Sheela 21st Aug 2013, 1:24 PM edit delete reply

heh ... areolaear disarmament sounds pretty cool actually.
cattservant 21st Aug 2013, 1:54 PM edit delete reply

So sorry!
I could think of an inspiring vote incentive!
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 2:44 PM edit delete reply

you guys are killing me ... >_<
Sheela 21st Aug 2013, 3:40 PM edit delete reply

Goodness, I hope not .. that would mean the end of updates as we know them !
Also, we need to know more about TeeDee's SLT's .. I mean .. we need to know more about TeeDee's temper!

.. yeah .. her temper .. definately.
cattservant 21st Aug 2013, 3:51 PM edit delete reply

You should check your ancient history.
Centcomm slipped an early one in!
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 3:52 PM edit delete reply

theres a new Luna star for you to find stuff on up :P BTW .. just saying :D
cattservant 21st Aug 2013, 3:55 PM edit delete reply

I bet you're just trying the old distraction trick.
Sheela wouldn't fall for that!
I, on the other hand, am easily diverted...
Sheela 21st Aug 2013, 4:17 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, yeah - I totally wouldn't fall fo... ohh, shiny !
Stormwind13 21st Aug 2013, 4:41 PM edit delete reply

Dying laughing over here. I'll have Cat charged with it if I can't breath and croak! :-D
jamie59 20th Aug 2013, 6:25 PM edit delete reply

Like grabbing a cat by the tail. Lets hope he can calm Teedee down without damage
velvetsanity 20th Aug 2013, 6:34 PM edit delete reply

You might want to simply exit the building, or take cover behind something that's armored and larger than you. Say, the bar itself.

Because, you know, it looks like Teedee's not listening to her CO at the moment.
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 10:46 AM edit delete reply

cattservant 20th Aug 2013, 6:44 PM edit delete reply

Letting go requires some consideration...
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 10:46 AM edit delete reply

i think they are past the point of talking.. :D
Stormwind13 21st Aug 2013, 4:57 PM edit delete reply

I think they are going to be 'talking' without words for a little bit here. More like Morse Code: Thud, thud, thud, SMASH, Smash, smash, Thud, thud, thud. :-D
dpallee 20th Aug 2013, 6:48 PM edit delete reply

Reminds me of my weekends out...
highlander55 20th Aug 2013, 6:59 PM edit delete reply

dpallee, if you remember your weekends then you didn't have any fun. LOL
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 10:47 AM edit delete reply

highlander55 20th Aug 2013, 7:05 PM edit delete reply

Teedee really has anger issues. Anger that quick is not good for human or android. She is in full pissed off mode. Should have given him the 2 finger salute and moved away. That would at least have shown she was trying to avoid trouble instead of acting like a noob in a bar.
anarcha 20th Aug 2013, 7:08 PM edit delete reply

I should visit this bar more often -- gets more & more interesting!
Stormwind13 20th Aug 2013, 7:21 PM edit delete reply

LOL anarcha. Good attitude for bar hopping. :-D
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 10:47 AM edit delete reply

oh yes - normally its a nice quiet place to drink and possably get a little action.. well .. they got some action!
Stormwind13 21st Aug 2013, 4:43 PM edit delete reply

And it is TeeDee action, so it is LITTLE. ::Dives for cover:: :-D
CyberSkull 20th Aug 2013, 7:25 PM edit delete reply

I think the "line" is straight out the back of the barfly's skull, and TeDe has just barely been stopped from crossing it.
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 10:49 AM edit delete reply

yes in deed... :D
Rashala 20th Aug 2013, 7:35 PM edit delete reply

My only commet. Marcus..>I sincerely hope you have a good Body work Guy...cause you're about to get several dents.....andframe damage
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 10:50 AM edit delete reply

oh i think it will be a fun time :D
Draginbeard 20th Aug 2013, 10:42 PM edit delete reply

Every expression you gave TeeDee on this page is simply outstanding. Real artistry at work here!
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 10:50 AM edit delete reply

thank you so much .. im really trying hard :D
Stormwind13 21st Aug 2013, 4:49 PM edit delete reply

I don't think they are outstanding, I think they are TERRIFYING! TeeDee is PISSED off and I want out of the blast radius! :-D
VanEzzania 21st Aug 2013, 6:40 AM edit delete reply

People just cannot get along in this comic
Draginbeard 21st Aug 2013, 6:50 AM edit delete reply

I think this reflects, very well, what happens when you put a group of people who are top heavy in attitude, and deep seeded inner rage, together in a confined space.

Sadly, this also describes almost every PC (my own included)in every gaming group I've ever played in =P

Facing facts, if everyone got along, there wouldn't be much action to go with the story.
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 10:52 AM edit delete reply

actually.. Marcus and Silver are both " advised" by the real people so they have input - right or wrong. science and information is corrected and sometimes procedure. BUT they have a lot of control over how the charcter reacts. I think it adds a element of chaos to the storyline. :D again Marcus, Silver and Black were all controled in a table top RPG based on the comic. :D
Stormwind13 21st Aug 2013, 4:46 PM edit delete reply

Sorry you had problems there, Draginbeard. I normally tried to help keep things together and working toward the goal. I mean, I know who the enemy was, the GM!!! :-D
Sheela 21st Aug 2013, 4:49 PM edit delete reply

Aiming for the GM is difficult though .., they keep moving. :(
Stormwind13 21st Aug 2013, 4:52 PM edit delete reply

That is why you have multiple players and take AoE weapons, Sheela. :-D The better to hunt GM's with! }:->
Sheela 21st Aug 2013, 4:54 PM edit delete reply

Nah, you use bait instead, they can't say no to cakes.
Stormwind13 21st Aug 2013, 5:07 PM edit delete reply

Depends on the cake. Some of the GM's were on diets or didn't like some flavors. :-) Now PIE, always gets them... The problem is, it gets all the players too! :-D
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 10:50 AM edit delete reply

some times.. no they cant
Stormwind13 21st Aug 2013, 4:44 PM edit delete reply

It is past 8pm (SOMEWHERE), PC FIRE FIGHT!!! :-D (House rules, couldn't start one before then).
KarToon12 21st Aug 2013, 8:26 AM edit delete reply

With that blur effect behind Marcus, he almost looked like the Flash for a second. XD
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 10:53 AM edit delete reply

he IS that fast. a lot of this is happening at high speed. although there are pauses..
JustNoPoint 21st Aug 2013, 9:51 AM edit delete reply

Man, he could easily take out the whole bar before anyone noticed what happened!
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 10:53 AM edit delete reply

actually.. he could.
Sheela 21st Aug 2013, 11:52 AM edit delete reply

TeeDee would notice .. and join in on the fun. :)
Marcus Ramesy 21st Aug 2013, 5:42 PM edit delete reply

sorry to every one for not makeing any coments... I just got set up .. bare limited internet at my new location in charlotte NC ... just moved out here on the east coast... so... any way.. Ill try to answer any questions I can tomorrow
Stormwind13 21st Aug 2013, 5:47 PM edit delete reply

Welcome back Marcus. Just in time to get into a fistfight with TeeDee, lucky you! :-D
Falanin 24th Aug 2013, 10:34 AM edit delete reply
Odd, I keep looking at this and all I can think is "MARCUS is out of line, here."

Self-defense against a sexual assault, and he stops it? Seriously, this is going to cause some bloody issues.
