The prototype of all the WyreCats suits, as seen disassembled in the backdrop of the cover,on full view here. The cat at the bottom of the opening panel isn't impressed, though.

It's weird how junk cobbled together by teenage geniuses can often outdo the efforts of the corporations. I think it has to do with the fact that the teenagers don't have to answer to anyone and have more unfettered imaginations.

And cats are NEVER impressed. EVER.

It's not just in fantasy fiction; googling "teen inventor" will give you a long list of brilliant kids who aren't even voting age but have come up with genuinely insightful new tools for humanity's betterment.

Good parents are always a welcome sight. Too bad he has to die. 'Tis the Mufasa Effect, I fear.

I bet it's powered by infinitely spinning cats trying to land on their feet.

Any dad would be proud of these kids.

1.) Kirk and the kids look up to see K.A. jumping down from the rafters, wearing an exoskeleton made out of crude, dull grey parts, strapped over a beige jumpsuit. Her hair pokes out of the back of the helmet, but her face is masked behind glassy red eyes. The boots are big and clunky with pronounced "toe" digits. The humans are impressed, but the cat Bryce is holding is unamused.

KIRK: K.A.?!

BRYCE: Nice...

2.) K.A. does a three point landing to the floor without any strain, while another cat jumps back in shock.

3.) K.A. stands up and pushes her mask backwards.

K.A.: Yeah, it's me.

4.)K.A. fiddles with her gauntlet as she speaks to Kirk. Bryce walks to the side and mutters to himself, salty over Kirk's sudden change in attitude.

K.A.: The interface is seamless. No pain in my feet...

BRYCE: (Not bad for a mess!)

5.) K.A. smiles and hands her gauntlet over to Kirk.

K.A.: Take a look.

6.) Kirk pulls back the wrist panel on the gauntlet, and marvels at the sophistication of the circuitry underneath.

KIRK: I've spent billions on R&D towards this level of synaptic connection...

7.) Kirk proudly puts a hand on K.A.'s armored shoulder, while she looks up in delight.

KIRK: ...and you kids made it out of junk! I'm so proud of you, kiddo...
