:< Oh Gail.

Quite frankly, I don't blame Gail for what she's doing. =/

I've had it pretty hard myself. I consider myself a good person, but if I had powers like Gail... it'd be pretty hard to ignore temptation to steal, much less be completely self sacrificing like Amber.

So. Max is completely invulnerable? There's no weakness whatsoever?

ok, now i'm back to rooting for Gail

"Quite frankly, I don't blame Gail for what she's doing."

I do. Completely.
I'm sorry, Gail is in the wrong. COMPLETELY. She's robbing people, and, more importantly, she's HURTING INNOCENT PEOPLE.
Gail is evil. Her hard life doesn't excuse her actions. Yes, I feel the occasional sympathy for her, especially while watching her fumble with romance. But she's still a bad person, and a villain I hope to see go down sooner or later.

Well, actually. This all depends on your point of view. While she is in the wrong, you have to see things from her point of view, after all, she's just trying to live her life, something that others have constantly messed up for her.
In her point of view, you look out for one person and that's yourself.

So yeah. Sorta on the fence, though yes, I do feel sympathic for her.

As for the hurting innocent people part... Haven't everybody done that? Intentionally, accidently or otherwise?

sun tzu(guest) is a bit hard on Gail. I mean the morality that the guest puts forward is a luxury Gail can't afford anymore.

What Gail is doing is bred of frustration, and nurtured by the acquisition, however unintentional, of the powers she now uses. Nothing has been easy for her. She became frustrated cause she saw people like Amber getting all the breaks in life and she felt like she kept getting kicked around. So naturally this is a likely course for her take, upon receiving her powers.

And on another note, I'd like to say i do find it refreshing and interesting that she takes this route rather then being hero, whether Gail's a goody two shoes or a bad ass like she is in this story. In the Spider Man comics, and other comics, the protagonist upon receiving their powers come to the conclusion that Peter Parker did, "With great power comes great responsibility", and act the hero. Whereas Gail, more in line with say, the villains or even the so called hero The Incredible Hulk, take a more selfish route. though she becomes a villain and wants to ride her powers for as long as the last, like any villain would, and the Hulk selfishly sought a cure for the monster inside.

Anywho, i find that sun tzu's conclusion a bit rash and ill informed (not to mention coming from a naive black and white moral stance) and that Gail's approach to her powers is both understandable (though not commendable) and refreshing.

Sorry for making such a long and weird comment on the comic. XD

The opinions spouted by Sun Tsu are nothing but bourgeoisie nonsense born of willfull ignorance of the reality of class struggle. Gail has been robbed of a childhood by her underfunded, understaffed, and incompetent orphanage, robbed of an education by her, again, underfunded, understaffed, and incompetent High School, and robbed of self-determination and the value of her labor by the inherently exploitative system of capitalist wage slavery. You gloss over the organized, systemic theivery that has been perpetrated against her as nothing but the unfortunate realities of "a hard life," but explode in indignation when she dares to take what, comparatively little, she wants from the unjust, meretricious society around her.

Anna is an in-comic example of someone like you. Neither she nor her parents ever attempted to mitigate the harsh circumstances under which Gail grew up. In High School, she didn't even recognize the fact that the classmate with which she was fighting was a homeless teenage runaway. As a young adult, she continued her petty, confrontational play-acting, convincing herself that Gail had harmed her cousin just so she could cast herself as the hero in another half-imagined personal drama. Without superpowers, she was a leech among leeches, a spoiled, talentless trollop living an affluent lifestyle on mommy/daddy's money. With superpowers, she becomes a shortsighted, childish thug willing to put unknown numbers of bystanders at risk at every engagement just so that the totally mean girl who doesn't like her doesn't get away with something bad, willing to send Gail to federal prison for decades for making a living the only way she can. Willing to get her sidekick shot in order to save a few bags of federally insured money.

In contrast, Gail's powers represent knowledge of the realities of class struggle. When Gail, the proletariat, realized herself as a class with objectives opposed to those of Anna, the bourgeoisie, she gained the ability to fight Anna's pervasive oppression. No longer beholden to the powers that robbed her of a childhood, an education, and any real freedom, she was finally able to take according to her need instead of accepting the tablescraps provided by the bourgeoisie. Recognizing that their control over her was waning and understanding that their just reckoning was soon at hand, the bourgeoisie, Anna, desperately lash out at Gail, hoping to beat her back into submission so that they can continue their abuse unabated.

Unfortunately for Anna, her attempts will fail and the unjust system she defends will collapse before the might of the proletariat.

Wow Amiko. You got some real DEEP discussion going on here :3 Gail is presenting a very interesting scenario when it comes to power. Gail isn't necesarily evil, but she is by no means "good" either. She's doing what most kids who've grown up on the streets, scratching out a living do; lookin' out for number one and taking care of her own.

Karl Marx
Gail isn't taking "comparatively little", she stole tens of thousands of dollars and busted a sociopath who hurts people for fun out of prison. She has no empathy, and empathy seperates us from the animals. She is not the heroic freedom fighter you cast her as, she's not trying to take down an admittedly corrupt system, she's just acting with herself in mind, the exact opposite of the communist ideals you keep spouting. If she really had the mindset you preach, she would have followed Gandhi's example. Amber is flawed, but not a symbol of corruption. She, at least, chooses to help her fellow man, even if she had a good life, she follows the communist ideology more than Gail, despite her position. Her position that she would probably have even in a Marxist society. Please, explain to me how Gail is "good".

In conclusion, use you freaking head, dumbass!
