Despite her doctor's advice, K.A. has agreed to the Director's mission. Is an American superhero likely to get away with more overseas than an American soldier? If not, does the Director have another reason for sending K.A. up against terrorists with super-serums? And where have we heard about nanomachines before?

Damn, I like this sequence of K.A suiting up in the background and stepping up.

Thank you! Neurokinetic armor is really convenient.

Be careful, K.A. Make the little runt pay through the noise for this, or he'll be trying to foist off onto you every crappy job he doesn't want to risk his precious troops or money on.

Next: Director Jens Larson has K.A. stand in with him to play golf with the Secretary of State!

See, questions like THIS are things I like to have discussed in comics, yet they're rarely if ever touched upon.

Thank you very much. The most important thing I can do my comic is get people discussing ideas larger than the comic.

Damn, these Pinscher guys look scary.

As for your question- I remember thinking the same thing when I saw an episode of that 90s Spider-Man cartoon where Spidey was going on a mission in Russia. How does this not risk a diplomatic incident? These kind of missions are better suited for spies undercover than famous American heroes in garish costumes.

Is this comic taking place in the same universe as Ruby Nation?

1.) I tend to think that superheroes aren't counted as non-state actors, especially heroes who explicitly hold to a code of humanism and nonviolence. In terms of global reputation, the WyreCats had quite a bit of international renown, while Ignis is hated by almost every government. Then again, there's the possibility that the Director is taking advantage of K.A.'s naivette....

2.) Yes.

The world likes them better? Not sure how much I believe that. This backstory so far hints that things have gone real bad for them. Not exactly a sign of being liked.

Yeah, this guy's got an agenda too. Now I'm starting to think Bryce's agenda is to absolve guilt resulting from something exactly like what is happening now. I could be wrong on this, but from my understanding, KA is a US citizen operating in the private sector as a hero. I would think she would be held to the same standard as any other citizen operating abroad. Moral debates aside, I'm smelling a test of KA's abilities, a trap by military intelligence to acquire KA's technology, or both. Whatever the case maybe, Larson smacks of government stooge. Or maybe rogue agent operating independently by abusing his power.

Interesting theories. Can't wait for your thoughts when you see how they turn out...
