I love the idea of Buttercup being the mother, 8D but then it falls into the discussion of why SHE did it.

I mean, spice and roughness aside, Buttercups kindof a sweetheart. The most mentally defunked shes ever been is having the need for a security blanket. XD

If she went crazy over guilt or something of the such, then I guess that would name her the traitor and explain why Blossom would be angsting out to all fahk, that might have led to Mimi.

It makes sense but I feel like it's stretching it a bit too much.

But- that Princess Morbucks sounds fun. Yes, and the two do share the spoiled arrogent personality trait. Ha. XD

And it would be ironic that their daughters would be besties.

(As for the girls' romance, I never once thought of it as a romantic-lezzy relationship. Probably because I watch so much anime, sexual affection doesn't automatically equal 'intimate' for me. I think they're just silly, mentally traumatized girls who don't actually process what their doing- ah- and Chi has a crush on her. Out of vanity and arrogence, probably. And Mimi's affection doesn't mean she returns it, just a continuing of Mimi's far-too-sexual-for-her-age complex... And such....)

I'm not saying this is a smoking gun, but Buttercup ALSO had a short term crush on Ace Gangreen, assuming that is his name (I never was able to figure out if the Gangreen Gang were meant to be related, or simply a group of like minded ne'er-do-wells with the same odd skin tone). She has shown she likes bad boys, and there are probably few "boys" badder than Aku.

Chi's eyes are green, but they don't really look like Buttercup's eyes to me. But this doesn't mean she isn't Buttercup's kin. I'm still thinking about what Misery Chord said. About Chi being the daughter of Berserk, from the Powerpunk Girls.

I completely agree with you on that. I to would love to see Buttercup as a mother. I mean, she's always been this hardcore tomboy, but she's always had a soft spot for her family. I think this love of family could definitely translate to maternal instincts. It'd be interesting to say the least.

Buttercup has already learned her lesson about bad boys. She sort of still likes Ace, but doesn't want to bring it up or remember it (See her reactions in "Aspirations").

In bleedman's universes, Buttercup typically likes/sides with Samurai Jack. Having a child with Samurai Jack's number one hated enemy is probably the opposite of what she would do.

I could give you a thousand reasons Blossom might have a kid with a villain, but Buttercup...not so much. I think she's the most genuinely righteous of her sisters, with Blossom being the least, and Bubbles in the middle. Key word being genuinely because Buttercup and Blossom both wear a kind of mask (Buttercup acts tough to hide her softness, Blossom acts overly good so people will accept and love her), while Bubbles is too innocent to hide her feelings and frequently swings between sweet and frightening.

I think Buttercup would want kids more than her sisters. (And being a tomboy has nothing to do with it but ok)

I feel like Chi's eyes are the key here. If Aku doesn't have the same ones...there will be hella explaining needed. They don't look like Puff eyes at all, they don't look like any eyes I've ever seen bleedman draw before.

On the subject of Berserk: Drax is supposed to be the Powerpunk-universe Dexter, and he pops up in Afterbirth. It's not canon but it shows that Bleedman could have made the universes cross at some point in Grim Tales.

Speaking of Buttercup, I may actually have a use for her in my fan fiction I'm working on maybe Hudson's daughter Marcelline as well. Nothing definitive yet but I am making some slow progress, but this meeting between Him and Chi does tie into the beginning of my story and I just really hope I can make this fan fic come to life.

Y'know, I've been wondering about Buttercup's association with Jack in Grim Tales. I mean she is wearing Japanese style attire. Is/was she merely his student, or could they have been....romantically involved?

askura wrote:I think Buttercup would want kids more than her sisters. (And being a tomboy has nothing to do with it but ok)

Why do you think Buttercup would want kids more than her sisters? I'm not saying she wouldn't want kids, but why does she top the list in this this category? If anything, I think Bubbles would want to be a mother, way more than Blossom or Buttercup.

I can see Buttercup taking the role of "mom" quite nicely. The reason I pointed out the tomboy thing, is because of the fact she hides her feeling behind her tough exterior.

askura wrote:I feel like Chi's eyes are the key here. If Aku doesn't have the same ones...there will be hella explaining needed. They don't look like Puff eyes at all, they don't look like any eyes I've ever seen bleedman draw before.

Well actually, Him's eyes are green, Blossom's are pink, and Mimi's are red. So...yeah...

What did you have in mind for Buttercup? Just curious. PM me about it if wish.

You've got a bit of a point. However, Buttercup did punch the teeth out of every villain in Townsville, in order to make money. Yet, Blossom stole a $5000 set of golf clubs.

I agree to some point Chi's mother could be Buttercup, but at the same time I do like the idea of one of the Punkpuffs (is that what they're called?) being the mother.

But Chi seems to have a short temper and being very aggressive, which reminds me of Buttercup. I'm sure Bleedman will hold off who the mother is for a long time and rain it down on us in a similar fashion to how he told us Mimi's mother.

On the page in question I was surprised that I didn't mind this turning into another flashback setting, perhaps because of the way its being presented. I definitely think that, as far as it is presented here, the relationship between Mimi and Chi is physically that of very good friends (there are plenty of anime and manga where one characters reaction upon seeing another is to glomp them regardless of time or place) with there being perhaps some one sided feelings on Chi's end (at least in present day, unknowable yet within this past setting). Of course this could change with the following pages, but I'm pretty solidly in that camp at this point.

In regards to the comment above, I never really understood that position regarding Blossom. I view the sisters as equally naturally righteous, but if any of them were more so I have always seen Blossom as that candidate. My memory of the show is rather rusty, but I do not recall anything that made me think Blossom's drive for her behavior and position as a leader was a result of external motivation rather than internal. I think she acts the way she does because she feels it is her responsibility, but one that she gave herself, not as a result of gaining approval or affection. This drastically changes the way she would look at actions like sleeping with a villain than if she was in fact only putting on a facade. Of course I could be wrong, but I've just never seen any evidence otherwise.

This position though ties into the comic as well. By assuming Blossom had an internal drive to do something wrong because it was actually something she wanted, this makes either sleeping with Aku (if she did, her contribution to Chi's creation could have easily been in another sense) or Him at least partially something she consented to. As far as the comic goes I see no evidence of this what-so-ever. Him's dialogue indicates her involvement with Mimi's creation was very much something she was driven to do against her will. I think holding a view of Blossom as someone who genuinely wanted to do something wrong contradicts this.

This is just my own view of course, and I've ranted about it enough. Needless to say I think the following pages will be very interesting as I look forward to this exposition.

Wow, I didn't know that. Then I suppose that that settles the parentage. I'm still going to hold out for a different person though.

Edit: I finally found what he said in the news thread. I'll just leave it here.

I half way agree with you on that. I would like to see another Powerpuff as a mother. But I would like to see them mothering a non-demon child. It's not that nobody cares if it makes sense, it's just nobody knows how to make sense of it. There's still a lot we don't know at this point.

You know, I REALLY hope Bubbles and/or Buttercup have children who will somehow, get involved with what's going on, or at the very least, Bubbles and Buttercup themselves are still alive (or both). Otherwise, I think I'll lose a lot of respect/interest in this comic. Because it just seem like a complete waste of potential to just "throw them aside" like that.

As a matter of fact; I'm still upset about the fact that Bleed just "side stepped" a lot of details about the city of Megaville, and all of the heroes. I was very interested in all of that. I hate it when a story fails give enough elaboration, and/or does not build on something that peeks my interest.

I didn't know he had one. My thought was that he didn't care about them one way or another.

Of course this was back in the era of panty shots, which painted him as a pedo.
Now he's stopped doing that (kinda) to get away from that image, or so I've been told.
And then you have something like this that happens, which compounds it.

Part of the reason I asked, this is because of the whole "GT and PPGD looking like they relate" thing.
I just wondered if the two comics were going to cross at some point, and what made Bleed decide against merging them. I mean, was there an out cry against GT being the future of PPGD by the majority? Or did Bleed simply just decide to make them separate universes?

Well, Drax could pretty much fit in with any plot point that calls for an evil genius. However adult Powerpunks, it's hard to see where they would belong in the current story.

AS to quote whutcha said i do simply agree. But i do remember an earlier conversation about the cross between GT and PPGD. There's really no cross with these comics but, if someone was confused about this they would to think of it as marvel and DC terms to which there are many different universes, and millions of different timelines. So pretty much anything is possible.

Oh speaking of GT: After Birth, can someone send me a link to the full or most up to date comic. i really want to read it.
