Damn, that last panel looks SCARY. Demonic even.
Centcomm 28th Aug 2013, 6:04 PM edit delete reply

and Marcus is gleefully throwing gasoline on this fire :D
Stormwind13 28th Aug 2013, 6:06 PM edit delete reply

Gasoline? No, I think he is going pure hydrogen! Looking for the BIG bang. :-D
Centcomm 28th Aug 2013, 6:08 PM edit delete reply

oh yes.. BIG bada BOOM! LOL

Can't view it here (in US), Sheela. :-7

But found this one, which should be similar.
Sheela 30th Aug 2013, 7:13 AM edit delete reply

Hrm .. that's weird, I was linking to a piece from the History channel.
As for what you linked back, that isn't the real deal, it's just a computer rendering - though a pretty good one.

cattservant 28th Aug 2013, 6:04 PM edit delete reply

And that wouldn't do at all.

[Douchebags just want to have fun!]
Stormwind13 28th Aug 2013, 6:04 PM edit delete reply

Pipsqueak? Tinkerbell? Geez, Marcus is REALLY not trying to get on TeeDee's good side, is he? :-D
Centcomm 28th Aug 2013, 6:06 PM edit delete reply

hes trying to get her to fixate on him. and get her angry enough to not make tactical decisions.. like she just did.
Stormwind13 28th Aug 2013, 6:11 PM edit delete reply

I would submit this as proof that TeeDee hasn't lost all her senses, yet. She is attacking those that stirred the pot (the sleazebag and Goldie). Now, her level of violence might be a bit high for their 'crimes' but... I wouldn't have missed either one of them. :-D
Centcomm 28th Aug 2013, 6:24 PM edit delete reply

your on the money storm.. :D
velvetsanity 2nd Jun 2017, 1:32 PM edit delete reply

@Stormwind13 'hasn't lost all her senses yet'? You do realize that ADA *and* Connie were both in the line of fire when she sent that pool table at Goldie, right?
Guest 28th Aug 2013, 6:56 PM edit delete reply
I need her attention on me.. if she hurts one of the civilians.. Im not going to have much of a choice.
Centcomm 28th Aug 2013, 8:03 PM edit delete reply

- Translation - Marcus didnt post from his computer and wound up as a guest :D
cattservant 29th Aug 2013, 1:28 AM edit delete reply

You mean he's on the loose?!
Sheela 29th Aug 2013, 9:52 AM edit delete reply

*cough* Marcus is always loose. >_<

And looks like TeeDee was definately testing him, and possibly testing the others as well - which is somewhat disturbing.
highlander55 28th Aug 2013, 6:06 PM edit delete reply

One- I like Teedee with the red MAD eyes! (what about the add on Dr Silver did tho?)
Two- Goldie is a warrior she isn't ...??, oh wait!! Wrong kind of commando! (which we will never see either way)
Centcomm 28th Aug 2013, 6:07 PM edit delete reply

Red shows though brown. the standard eye glow is cancled :P but not the red :D due to the eye actually useing diffrent elements from standard vision.
Stormwind13 28th Aug 2013, 6:08 PM edit delete reply

Rose, love the dialogue here. Especially Connie's apology in panel 1. I was just laughing at it. :-D
cattservant 28th Aug 2013, 6:14 PM edit delete reply

Dialogue is in an ascending spiral since this scene began!
velvetsanity 28th Aug 2013, 6:25 PM edit delete reply

An Artist might make a picture of Rose taking a 'bow' on the 'bow'* of the Titanic* with 'bows'** in her hair!

Panel 3;
left rear,
Must be an interactive tele-screen.
The characters are running for cover too!
highlander55 28th Aug 2013, 6:12 PM edit delete reply

Cat- I was thinking the same thing and LOL. Also the guy in the picture behind the girls looks to be shooting Goldie too!.
Stormwind13 28th Aug 2013, 6:13 PM edit delete reply

LOL. That was GREAT Cat. :-D

Standard screenshot from the CoH, with PoV pulled back to see your own character. :-)

Centcomm 28th Aug 2013, 6:22 PM edit delete reply

yep - I threw it in forgot to change it for the shoot :P ( the charcter in question was a lvl 50 blaster :D )

Guardian server :D
Stormwind13 28th Aug 2013, 6:41 PM edit delete reply

I played on Guardian... Didn't have a 50 there though. I was trying to get one though, but after they announced they were killing CoH off lost too many people from there to finish. :-(

Best I could do there was... 44th level Controller. :-)
Centcomm 28th Aug 2013, 6:58 PM edit delete reply

it took me 2 years to hit 50 playing on and off solo .. my MM only took 6 months :D
Stormwind13 28th Aug 2013, 7:02 PM edit delete reply

Took me 4 years to get anything to 50th and that was mainly because friends I found in CoH wanted to play some of the high level stuff (that was on Justice).

The 2nd 50th took less than 6 months. Got in a group, went from like to 8th to 17th in one night, next week was to 22nd and the following week was to 29th. I mean that group ROCKED (Triumph Defenders on Triumph). :-D That character was on an express elevator to levels.
Sheela 29th Aug 2013, 10:10 AM edit delete reply

I had many level 50's ... but my very first character was an Invulnerability Tanker that was a remake of a beta character.
Stormwind13 29th Aug 2013, 2:01 PM edit delete reply

I got my first tank (also invulnerability) to 50th, but only at the very end. I didn't enjoy playing tanks that much.

I only had eight 50's all told. Four Controllers, two Defenders, one Scrapper and one Tank. :-)
Sheela 30th Aug 2013, 7:16 AM edit delete reply

I gotta admit, controllers were pretty fun. Blasters came in second, then Tankers, scrappers and defenders last, of the original suspects.
Stormwind13 30th Aug 2013, 2:34 PM edit delete reply

Took me 3 years to find controllers, once I did though, I LOVED them. :-) At the end, I would have to go with Controllers, Defenders (yes, I'm weird so what? :-D), Scrappers, Tanks and Blasters. Actually, I liked Corruptors (blue side) more than I liked the last three. :-D Surprisingly, I didn't like Dominators that much . :-)
VanEzzania 28th Aug 2013, 6:18 PM edit delete reply

I feel bad for Ms. Silver Hair Lady (I has forget her name *cries), she just wanted a drink
Stormwind13 28th Aug 2013, 6:20 PM edit delete reply

You mean Ada? She is with them... causing trouble, spreading chaos. :-D
cattservant 28th Aug 2013, 6:25 PM edit delete reply

In the nicest kind of way, of course!
Centcomm 28th Aug 2013, 6:24 PM edit delete reply

I know HUH! - hey Connie, Silver and Ada just wanted a drink or two and a meal .. PFFFT yeah right!
Stormwind13 28th Aug 2013, 6:43 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, but they brought TeeDee with them... That is a GUARANTEE that they aren't going to have a PEACEFUL meal. :-D
Centcomm 28th Aug 2013, 6:57 PM edit delete reply

cattservant 28th Aug 2013, 6:39 PM edit delete reply

Does anyone think that if TeeDee had a personality that would have opted for 'full parts functionality', that she might have pursued her 'frustrations' down a somewhat different path?
Stormwind13 28th Aug 2013, 6:46 PM edit delete reply

I'm not sure that is even SAFE to think about Cat. I think TeeDee might be performing lobotomies with a laser on anyone even THINKING about such things. :-D
highlander55 28th Aug 2013, 6:49 PM edit delete reply

Storm- I think Cat is say maybe Teedee would taken her angst out with 'headed' in the other direction. (If ya know what I mean)
Stormwind13 28th Aug 2013, 6:55 PM edit delete reply

I do hear you highlander. The What If though doesn't apply to this world, because has THIS TeeDee in it. And someone even THINKING that What If is going to get her to adjust their thinking. :-D
Centcomm 28th Aug 2013, 6:53 PM edit delete reply

I think she would take "angry sex" to a WHOLE new level...>_<
highlander55 28th Aug 2013, 7:00 PM edit delete reply

Wouldn't want to be there, I think I would wait for the movie. Safer that way.
Stormwind13 28th Aug 2013, 7:03 PM edit delete reply

LOL, highlander. Yeah. You are RIGHT there. :-D
cattservant 28th Aug 2013, 7:00 PM edit delete reply

I wonder where the 'Lady in Red' went?
Now that I think about, she had somewhat of the air of a reporter for the local news service.
That would be awkward...
Stormwind13 28th Aug 2013, 7:04 PM edit delete reply

Well we are getting slices of the bar, so she might still be sitting at her table or she may have bailed. Until we get a different angle, won't know for sure. :-)

However, now that I think about it, you might be right. She kind of did seem like she might be reporter type. :-)
Centcomm 28th Aug 2013, 10:55 PM edit delete reply

oh shes still in the room :D
cattservant 29th Aug 2013, 1:31 AM edit delete reply

This might be her idea of Dinner Theater!
Sheela 29th Aug 2013, 10:12 AM edit delete reply

What if : She turns out to be much tougher than both Marcus & TeeDee ?
Stormwind13 29th Aug 2013, 2:06 PM edit delete reply

I would be terrified to find that out, Sheela. I mean, what would she be made out of? Neutronium? :-O
Sheela 30th Aug 2013, 7:17 AM edit delete reply

Nah, force fields and a crazy good power supply.
With enough power, force fields trumps everything else.
Stormwind13 30th Aug 2013, 2:41 PM edit delete reply

Except for the crazy squirrel that chews on cables (and yes, we had one knock out power to half the city once by trying to crawl into a transformer stage of a substation. It blew up, burned and took 8 hours to get everything back on. Fortunately it was a BEAUTIFUL day. Got out of school for it. :-D).
jamie59 28th Aug 2013, 7:44 PM edit delete reply

That's almost as bad as what Teedee had in mind draging Pride of Roma from the room.
Is Marcus pointing out Teedee didn't come with the party package realy going to wind her up the way he wants?
Centcomm 28th Aug 2013, 10:56 PM edit delete reply

well TD was going to beat her within a inch of her life,.. if she even stopped there.
Stormwind13 30th Aug 2013, 2:43 PM edit delete reply

From the looks of things, CentComm... I thought TeeDee was going to run Goldie over and mount the carcass on the wall or something. :-p TeeDee didn't seem TOO interested in Goldie surviving the encounter.
anarcha 28th Aug 2013, 7:51 PM edit delete reply

Top right panel = just a naturally nice portrait.:)
Centcomm 28th Aug 2013, 10:56 PM edit delete reply

that DID capture her pretty nicely :D
ranger_brianna_new 28th Aug 2013, 9:28 PM edit delete reply


Red eyes.
Never a good sign.
Centcomm 28th Aug 2013, 10:56 PM edit delete reply

nope theres a trope about red eyes :D
Stormwind13 29th Aug 2013, 2:08 PM edit delete reply

There's a reason it is a trope too! :-D
Rashala 28th Aug 2013, 10:35 PM edit delete reply

I think Tedee's goint rampant
Centcomm 28th Aug 2013, 11:01 PM edit delete reply

Rampant .. or rabid.. Id bet eather at this point :D
mjkj 29th Aug 2013, 12:29 AM edit delete reply

Wow, Ada is fast...

...I hope that does not blow her cover.

...and yes, red eye TeeDee is scary.

I wonder why the barkeep lady is still standing there like frozen - seems like the credit card was not helpful enough...
cattservant 29th Aug 2013, 1:34 AM edit delete reply

The bar might have a built in bunker!
Stormwind13 29th Aug 2013, 3:04 AM edit delete reply

Well it IS her business, so she has an interest in how it is being treated. So she is going to watch whomever is still in her bar.
Plus, it really hasn't been THAT long in time. I mean seconds, enough that she probably COULD have gotten out, but she doesn't want to leave her business.
mjkj 29th Aug 2013, 1:32 PM edit delete reply

I feared that might be the case: indecisiveness because of fear for her business - that might even cost her life (if TeeDee snaps)...

(...but as long as Dr. Silver is near she still has a chance - especially with protector orb maxing its shields...)
Centcomm 29th Aug 2013, 1:25 PM edit delete reply

again shes still processing all this. ( unknown to everyone the bar/counter is actually armored shes not stupid >_<
mjkj 29th Aug 2013, 1:33 PM edit delete reply

Ah, well, then she might be safe a bit longer if she hides behind it :)

...and she was about to say: "Aw, not the - pool" but by then Marcus had already stopped it. :p
Centcomm 29th Aug 2013, 3:29 PM edit delete reply

again things are happening really fast :D
Stormwind13 29th Aug 2013, 2:11 PM edit delete reply

Unknown, but NOT a surprise. I wouldn't be surprised if it had a stun projector built into either.

I can see it, mean drunk... ZAP... Sleeping drunk. :-D

I would be more surprised if it had anything TOO lethal in it though. :-) Bad for business to be vaporizing customers. :-D
Centcomm 29th Aug 2013, 3:29 PM edit delete reply

LOL no but she does have a stun baton under the counter. and a panic button.
cattservant 29th Aug 2013, 6:48 PM edit delete reply

Thought so!
Draginbeard 29th Aug 2013, 5:44 AM edit delete reply that a little CoH I see playing on the monitor in panel 3?
Sheela 29th Aug 2013, 10:14 AM edit delete reply

Yes, yes it is ... it was there on last page too. :)
Draginbeard 29th Aug 2013, 2:00 PM edit delete reply

Last page too...Ah I see it there now, although Connie was blocking enough so I couldn't tell what I was looking at.
Centcomm 29th Aug 2013, 1:26 PM edit delete reply

YUP - the sarifina's bottle mission :P
JustNoPoint 29th Aug 2013, 7:20 AM edit delete reply

Yeah, that last panel exceeds the "If looks could kill" quota!
Centcomm 29th Aug 2013, 1:26 PM edit delete reply

that came out SOOO well :D
KarToon12 29th Aug 2013, 8:43 AM edit delete reply

That last panel's going to give me nightmares now. D:

awww - I have not yet BEGUN to creep :D ( insert evil laughter here ) :D
Tokamada01 29th Aug 2013, 12:49 PM edit delete reply

When last I saw a traumatized android with red eyes it involved a screwdriver and ALOT of blood....

Amazing work on that last panel, the eye change over from blue to red is an excellent touch for the trauma. Also interesting is the first and last panel; Connie's non threatening act of compassion (blue eyes) to Teedee's threat of violence (red). Don't know if that was intentional.

I'm waiting to see if a change in TeeDee's speech pattern/bubbles/wording develops... dIe YoU bAG oF mEAt..MARcuS.

While we will watch this unfold in all its nail-biting intensity, is it possible to get a tech sheet on Reload Trauma to learn more about it? It has become a bit of a plot point.

With red eyes what are you looking for?
With red eyes, red eyes

All of my days are spent within this skin
Within this cage that I'm in
Nowhere feels safe to me, nowhere feels home
Even in crowds I'm alone

~Red Eyes by Switchfoot

Centcomm 29th Aug 2013, 1:30 PM edit delete reply

thats .. a interesting take on things - i didnt really plan it that way! ( or i could just shut up and take the credit >_< ) The other Andriod you are talking about ( Kelly ) was a LOT worse off than Teedee ever was and she "lost" her mind over the course of a couple of years being forced to be a serial killers assistant. something that is a total atithisis of everything the NTAS standard coding stands for. and the moral coding that is deeply installed ..

and ill see what we can come up with on reload trama..
Rashala 29th Aug 2013, 4:48 PM edit delete reply

I thought Marcus was trying to .....Calm the situation down.....Why is he provoking her
