I am not disappoint! I applaud this comic verily!
Archrival- Now you sir have potential, definately so if Blood tolerates you. I feel you could be an asset to the forum amongst the muck.
Zelosse- I spent the last 30 minutes watching Gato's Avatar. Jesus christ it's so cute it sickens me.

Could go either way, Xi-1. Usually in"Samurai Jack" bots could blow up after being sliced like that...but this isn't the actual show.
I think it'll do one of four things:
1) Keep fighting, despite having lost its arm.
2) Regrow its arm (somehow).
3) Reattach the old arm.
4) Flee from the fight.

I don't think #4 will be an option for him. I think he's just going to keep fighting until he's destroyed enough to where he can reside in a landfill unnoticed.

Um... Cluster robots regenerate. Just thought I'd put that out there.

Unless you press the off switch but I suppose something that silly would be excluded from this.

Yeah, I can think of only a couple of idiotic villians who are foolish enough to have an off switch on their robots.

The one thing I hate about villians is that a lot of the time the monologue thier plans. It's annoying, stupid, and it just reveals to the hero what the hell they're up to.

It's mostly done out of tradition really, and often used to inform the viewer as well of what is going on. It's used as a gag too if villains doesn't do it, and it's pointed out.

Is this a complete question or were you cut off in mid-sentence? It vaguely sounds like you're asking how old the girls are, so in response to that, I think they are roughly 9-11, which would put them also roughly in the fourth grade.

Well, when I was 11 I was in fifth grade so yeah I'd actually say about 9-11 as well.

Heh, 9-11. I think you're saying something else here.
It's been a while since I've seen either 'PPG' or 'Atomic Betty,' so the properties of Cluster bots escaped me. Besides, if it were me I'd blow it up enough so it wouldn't have enough with which to regenerate. Just like with Cell. I'm just saying I have a pic of most of Bleedman's 'PPGD' characters, and the purple bot's there.

Getting the villain to monologue was used as a trope in 'The Incredibles' as well. Syndrome caught himself, then went back to hitting so sometimes villains realize they're just wasting time too.

Underestimating the enemy is a costly mistake, sometimes fatal. See also the most recent 'Order of the Stick' comic if you don't believe me. It's almost hari-kiri, as performed by a cat.

I can't tell if that's a Sun Tzu quuote or just common knowledge.

I think I've scene that rune somewhere before but I can't quite put my finger on it. Was it earlier in the comic or was it from somewhere else entirely? Or did Bleedman just make it up?

Is it not the Cluster symbol? I know she has that on her head.

Sun Tzu? Maybe. I didn't research for it, though.

That's no Sun Tzu symbol. That doesn't look ancient Chinese to me. It looks more like the symbol on the heads of the Cinbri from Dungeon Siege II.
