I get the uneasy feeling the darkest things in this comic, revolves around Blossom and the death of the heroes.
Not the rape idea. I really don't lean that way in my fetishes.
If the level of dark could have been maintained or close to the level of when Minnie was torn apart. Most of this comic is just skirting around that edge, like the Blossom and other heroes thing. It's hinted at how they might have died, we know Blossom was some how killed by Mimi, but we don't have those gory details. It just brushes up against the side of them and wanders off like a drunk onto some other topic that leaves even more questions. but one of the things that I think is neat about that at the same time is that Bleedman can make a ton of side arcs on it and we are at least progressing somewhere even though that where isn't very clear.

I have no idea. I was relatively new at the time I heard about it, and it was something about Grim's use of the word "fook". But then we had Bunnywith, Mandy got to say "fuck" a few times, etc. So it seems like it just isn't there anymore or Dave doesn't care about it.

Not directly, no. You can go off of two ideas to point to two different ideas. The first being that Blossom was with Aku first, and they some how managed to have a child together and then through some odd event Blossom left and went to Megaville. Mimi's conception could have occurred before or after she left the City of Aku. This would make Chi about a year older, give or take a couple of months. The issue that I am having with this thought process now is that the relationship that Aku and Him have is on pretty good terms. You might be thinking "Why does this matter? It's the Underworld." Well, it does. Most of the denizens are corrupted, but there is good in them as well. You have to have that in the comic from an authors point of view or else people wouldn't be able to relate to the characters, and just feel disgusted by reading the comic. Instead you want people to relate to the characters and have emotions for them. BUT back to the other thing.
We see that Aku cares about his family. I would have guessed that if Aku cared about Blossom, he would have hated Him for having Mimi kill her. the relationship between the two would be strained. there are a few ways around this, which I think are a longshot but still possible. Aku understood to some extent that Blossom made a deal with Him over something (perhaps it was to save his life) and her escape to Megaville betrayed that deal. Thus her life had been forfeited. Aku was never aware of the situation. Blossom betrayed Aku and Him so they both attacked Megaville.

I'd like to think the only plausible way for aku to obtain this piece of soul is after her death at the hands of him/mimi. Unless of course the traitor is blossom that of which involves a possible relationship in the pas. Otherwise Mimi would be older since she was already old enough for him to make attempts to reclaim her.
In other words, they would be around the same age if aku stripped a piece of Blossom's soul around the time she was "raped" by him.
If Him gave a piece of Blossom's soul to aku at this time i guess that would explain the good relationship between them.
Otherwise the soul was obtained after the death of blossom thusly making Mimi older in lou of Chi's creation after blossom's death.
Fairly accurate, and this is the source of my other idea detailing the creation of Chi, but also provides some guess work into what happened and as we can see, age, so to speak. Thus far I like this one the best, because it compensates for the relationship between Him and Aku. So Yesterdays was fairly accurate about it. Fragment(s) of Blossom's soul was used to make Chi. A recent idea I had about how this occurred is that Him could have brought the soul fragments back to Aku as a gesture of "I'm sorry, but it had to be done" and Aku made Chi (this part was more of a combination and brought some of the other idea into this).
The slightly difficult thing I have with the Underworld here is how age and time fits into everything. Does time pass in the manner that we calculate it to here on Earth? How much of a factor does the immortality play on these children and their development? Are Minnie and Jr older or younger than Chi and Mimi, or since they are immortal and the time could be different here than on the mortal realm, it doesn't matter because the rate of developement is slow enough that they all appear the same age. (I do know that Jr is older than Minnie).
