BeeAre: She's mean, she's (mostly) green, she still says she's queen, it's your favorite super-evil super robot, Vexus! She slices, she dices, she makes julienne fries! Looks like we've got ourselves a good old-fashioned supervillain face-off! WHEEOO!

Um, wtf's wrong with Vexus's abdomen? One clean slice from a kitchen knife to her abdomen and she'd be in half. Well, anyways, pretty interesting page, I'd like to see what the red dude summoned and I wonder if Vexus will kill the two main guys, Mr. Tall Purple and Mr. Tall Red, and then make it look like someone else did it, or kill them and take control of the Irken Empire itself. We'll have to wait and see.

Vexus is a robot made of super-strong metal. It does not matter that her figure has seriously twiggy structure in some places. :0)

My guess is that Vexus either wants to get the Irkens to join the Dark Star Counsel as another ally, or she's looking to eliminate the competition for galactic domination. Also I think the tall dude was talking about their fleet, which is five minutes away, and Vexus is right there. Unless he has an immediate ace up his sleeve.

Odds are, something far less intimidating than implied.

This is interesting page. I wonder what Tallest red will summoned? :|

Cool page, nice to see Vexus and Protoboy returning to the story. Vexus, the real big bad of this story. I still think she wants to take out the Irkens as they are the only ones with connection to Earth not getting caught in the explosion.

For the love of god, please let the irkens be competent at something.

For real. The Irkens are capable, it's just a matter of them actually concentrating on something that isn't their insatiable desire for snacks. With the exception of Zim, the other invaders, such as Tak and even Skoodge, are pretty competent and grow in their conquests and experiences. Come on, Tallest, now is your time to shine.

I was actually pleasantly surprised to see Protoboy. I thought he was forgotten. Interesting to note that Bleedman's intepretation of Protoboy actually looks more like a marriage of the designs of the original and his little brother, his successor, Robotboy. Robotboy has the rounder, more streamlined design, while Protoboy is more angular and stylized. If this isn't just a stylistic choice on behalf of Bleedman, it makes me wonder if maybe after joining the Cluster, Protoboy got an upgrade. Maybe he has the indestructible armor his brother has now. Speaking of Protoboy, I wonder how Vexus recruited him. If anybody's watched the show, Protoboy is a ticking time bomb. I guess with the promise of killing the rest of his family, he joined for the extra support. This is definitely me reading way too deep into this without much context, so, you can kindly ignore me if you want.

I'm actually hoping that if the Earth is salvaged, Robotboy will make an appearance. He'd be an invaluable asset against the Cluster and Irken armada, he has a pretty conflicting relationship with Protoboy, and my bias toward him being a really interesting, adorable character. I'm not holding my breath, since there is a complex storyline with Jenny as is, but I can always dream, lol.

I didn't watch Invader Zim very much when I was a kid; I think I only caught like 4 or 5 episodes. So I'm not very familiar with the Tall Ones. Maybe the Tall Ones will send in a more advance version of what Gir is. Speaking of Tak, I wonder if she'll be in this comic.

As for Robotboy: I would prefer if he wasn't in this comic.

The tall ones are known as The Almighty Tallests! :D

I do love Tak but I'm not sure what she could actually add to the story. I do like Tak though. If I had to guess what they might be calling, I'd say: That chicken legged Doom bot thing. I used to know the name of all of these things but it has been years since I watched IZ, I may need to go back and rewatch it soon.

I've only watched like, a few episodes of the show myself, so I don't know much about what the Tallest are fully capable of. I should also rewatch the whole series, as I remember reading scripts on future episodes and how the series would end, but it never got produced due to low ratings I think. So, maybe they do have some kind of powerful weapon on hand. It'd be interesting to see what they have. Maybe it'll be something of a challenge and Vexus will still come out on top, or maybe it'll be a joke and she'll come out on top. I hope a good robot battle is to come in the next few pages.

Low ratings? Try a mob of stay at home mothers with nothing better to do but get a great show cancelled because it is damaging to their children. Plus that one crazy guy who tried to reenact the episode "Dark harvest" didn't help much.

The Irkens weapons are awesome but I don't find The Almighty Tallest as a threat. Does Vexus perhaps wants their weapons more than their defeat or alliance?

Interesting. What exactly is this "chicken legged Doom bot thing" you speak of?

Fucking Nazis. Every last one of them.

That's the same question I was asking a few posts ago. It's hard to say at this point, but if Vexus was about to sic Protoboy on them, then I say it's possible she wants them dead.

And... Protoboy's here. YES. Nice to see he managed to get in much sooner that I expected.
Also, uh, random question before actually commenting, can Moderators remove answers from regular members? Or did my parts of answer to Guardian last page was simply not taken in for some reason when I submitted the post?

With that said, see, this is why I love Villain vs Villain fights. When both are smirking like madmen (I.E Red Tallest's evil smirk last panel) because they have cards up their sleeves to help them win a battle, and start taunting the other with awesome, unforgettable lines. That's just amazing and so fun to witness. But whatever the Tallest will call, I doubt it will exceed the full potential of a Super-Activated Protoboy. Maybe, maybe not. Now the question is: will it be enough to last 5 minutes? I really Hope Vexus will have something else to back her up as well.

Your internet connection can sometimes cause your posts to not go completely through.

I actually thought that was a corrupted Robotboy, because of the design.

Re: Exopolitical Diplomacy

@Tenshi Nova Hm. That is weird. Oh well! Thanks, Tenshi.

@rock2161 Proto Boy is a corrupted Robot anyway, so he's bound to bring destruction to the Irkens.
Especially now that he has been given the order to do so.

Re: Exopolitical Diplomacy

Yes. Proto has appeared and villain clash is about to begin. But I hope this is true wild destroy everything Proto-boy. I don't really care for Vexus and hope Proto-boy rips her in half after this chapter is done. But you can expect one thing. No matter what the Tallest summon it's going to have the word Doom in it's name.

Now as for the red dude in the background he reminders me of the robot assassins from the Dexter's Laboratory Movie: Ego Trip.

So any bets
Villain vs villain mean only one force leaves alive
