    “Can he talk to other wolves?”
    “Yeah, but not, like, persuasively.”

  • Kid Chaos

    Hoo-boy, here it comes… 😯

  • Rumble in the Tumble

    That’s not a smooth way to change the topic to business, no :v

  • http://www.genreville.com/ Josh Jasper

    Oh boy that’s going to go well. Try leading with “That’s the thing, see, I’m involved in this new type of superhero project. Uh, women only, though, sorry. Would you like to hear about it?”

    • ZBass

      Woman only? What about Rich!

      I can’t think of any reason why Pintsize wouldn’t be able to help out.

  • Mujaki

    “Actuallllllly, a bunch of lawyers from the DBRD came down and took it. Something about you abandoning the rights to the name “Mega Girl,” several hundred pending litigation cases for property damage, and a bunch of other stuff that went over my head.”
    “Was that a short joke, Pintsize?”
    “Yeah, sorry. Old habits, you know? They left an itemized bill for you, it’s in warehouse B. And part of C.”

    Look at this, unbelievers. Look at his hopeful eyes “Did you just come to check up on me?”. Hector is the most genuinely vulnerable character in the whole webcomic and, for reference, that’s a webcomic wherein Alison is the main protagonist.
    Look at that change of background color in the last panel, hinting at a change of tone, the utter disappearance of warmth in Alison’s tone, mirorring her cold, lifeless grey eyes.

    This will not end well.

  • MrSing

    On all levels, even physical, he’s a wolf. [Barks]

  • Daniel Vogelsong

    I’ll get you the check, sure… but since you’re here, can you help me move? Some of this stuff… is kinda heavy…

  • Kris Dunlap

    Hector-“I spent it all to get Werewolf public speaking lessons in wolf, because even though one wolf is lame an entire pack of wolves fighting crime is awesome!”
    Allison-“I 100% agree with that decision! New Wolf Guardians forever!”

  • Arthur Frayn

    Here it comes…

    “Can he talk to other wolves?”
    “Yeah, but not, like, persuasively.”

    You know, I’ve always wondered why “talk-to-animals” usually equated to having animal minions.

    • rpenner

      “That must be the smartest, most educated wolf opinion I heard on anything.”
      “But something about him doesn’t smell right. I heard he was secretly a man-lover.”
      “There’s no call for such language, but you are right, we can’t trust leadership to the over-thinkers.”
      “We’re looking for an alpha with a really glossy coat — that’s the essence of leadership.”

    • RaeRae

      I don’t know if you ever read Fables, but they covered that pretty well. The big bad wolf was the “king” of wolves, and even then, it was very difficult managing them.

      You have to promise them doggie treats!

      • Balthazar

        I think scooby-snacks only work on scruffy teenagers and dogs.

    • MrSing

      Animals can’t handle peer pressure.

    • Santiago Tórtora

      If while walking down the street in heavy rain a cat said to you “give me your umbrella” in perfect English, would you not give the cat your umbrella?

      • Dean

        Of course not. How would a cat use an umbrella?

      • Abel Undercity

        I’d give the cat my umbrella and probably run for my life, because it’s likely to be Greebo and Granny Weatherwax is somewhere nearby.

        • http://sortofanaliyah.blogspot.org/ Scar Man!!!

          I thought he was Nanny Ogg’s cat. In which case, I would be running away from the inevitable hangover the next morning if I stayed to chat

    • Balthazar

      Werewolf: “Heed my call comrades!”
      Wolf 1: “Dude I barely even know you.”
      Wolf 2: “Nope, not feeling it today.”
      Wolf 3: “Nice try, discount doolittle.”

      Werewolf: “I hate you guys.”

      • Kris Dunlap

        The real conversation goes:
        Werewolf: “Obey me!”
        Other wolves: “Lets disembowel him for being different and intruding on our territory!”

        • http://sortofanaliyah.blogspot.org/ Scar Man!!!

          pretty much.

      • Pol Subanajouy

        “Discount doolittle.” <3

    • Tsapki

      I blame Aquaman.

  • lizasweetling

    and now for the awkwardness.
    oh well- Optimism! she can spin it as a cool human-rights improving thingy, right? right?

  • Joshthulhu

    Here’s the point in the conversation where the bottom of your stomach descends very rapidly.

  • Pol Subanajouy

    I for one think turning into a wolf sounds cool…but not against guys with guns.

    • Tsapki

      More useful for recon than much else. Good tracking and less likely to get shot at so long as you don’t do anything suspicious.

      • http://sortofanaliyah.blogspot.org/ Scar Man!!!

        Just because he can smell stuff better doesn’t mean he doesn’t need to be trained in what each smell corresponds to.

  • StClair

    I wonder how much of it is simple misdirection, ie, “watch the birdie…”
    I’m sure that the gov’t doesn’t have any under-the-radar dynamic “operatives”, as in JMS’ Supreme Power. (To say nothing of what the big-C Conspiracy might be up to.)

  • ∫Clémens×ds

    “Can he talk to other wolves?”
    “Well, wolf conversational behavior involves a lot of butt sniffing. We’re telling him it’s to save the world, but he’s still not ready to commit to the cause.

  • Dan Franklin

    I was hoping she’d do exactly what you’re describing – that’s a lot more graceful than what she did. (But at her age I would not have thought to do it that way.)

  • Zinc

    I think public opinion of super-heroes is still pretty high. The anti-biodynamic crowd is probably a rather small minority – even if they are extremely vocal, and often violent and dangerous. Alison can barely get thorough an issue without running into someone who wants to thank her for saving their or their uncle’s lives.

  • 3-I

    Plus just because we don’t see any supervillains around doesn’t mean there aren’t biodynamics running around wrecking stuff.

  • Zmm

    hah. I hope this doesn’t go bad
    i would like him to show up more consistantly..
    having a link to the past would be nice

  • Arkone Axon

    Regarding the wolf thing… check Girl Genius sometime. Krosp, King of Cats, summed up why this is an issue. “I am the King of all cats, they do whatever I command them. But they’re CATS! They’re stupid! I tell them to go do something and they charge off… and forget what I told them, or they get bored, or hungry.”

    As for the check thing… I’m curious to see what he thinks of what she’s wanting – or more specifically, WHY she wants it. She’s been effecting major and positive changes in the world. Not huge ones – yet – but it’s a definite start. Is he going to be unhappy about the idea of heroes without costumes? Or is he going to want to join in and help out in this new way?

    • http://sortofanaliyah.blogspot.org/ Scar Man!!!

      As someone explained above, there is a different problem with wolves. They are a bit smarter than cats, about dog level. But there is there no way a pack is going to to listen to some random outsider with no pack status. Best case scenario, ignore or growl at him to stay off their turf. Worst case scenario, alpha assumes a challenge to his status and attacks.

  • Devlerbat

    Whats wrong with shrinking? Shrinking is at worse a B-list power. Guy who turns into a wolf can’t really do anything that a trained hound can’t.

  • Hawthorne

    “I mean, his ESSAYS are hella persuasive, but the wolves don’t read.”

  • http://sortofanaliyah.blogspot.org/ Scar Man!!!

    hey, shrinking is a great power if you broaden your thoughts to non-combat applications.

  • Lostman

    Pintsize… Your idiot: The government is send someone with better smelling to track a person who illusions, do the math.
