Minnie*

I remember that episode. It also reminded me of the Shadow World episode, not sure how far we can go with that since it would open a lot of possibilities...like stupid Billy...

Basically, mirrors are portals to the shadow world. In their people's shadows had personalities that were opposite the original.
Mandy's was a happy, giddy, little, animal loving, girl.
Billy's was stupid. Yep, our Billy is the smart one.

Or the one that reminded you of that one. The one with Grim dying to be dead again and something about a blob.

I somewhat remember these. I remember Pat the Baker. That's (kinda) the name of my PSN account as a matter of fact.

It would be pretty cool if the "shadow world" played a part in this comic. Although the concept of evil doppelgangers/counterparts it kinda cliché.

Not to mention it'd over complicate everything.

So the episode is called Night of the Living Grim and Grim is laid up in bed with EDS (Encroaching Doom Syndrome). http://mytvseriesapp.com/episode-377891 ... _grim.html

I think the Shadow World episode features a Billy that makes noises like a seal.

I don't think this is true. All beings who are killed become "dead" like Grim. Grim having originated as "dead" shouldn't matter. On the other hand, he's probably the only being in existence that can contract EDS.
I just love how people put commas, in places they so obviously, do not belong.

I don't know about you, but I love the Young Justice animated series.

Well I imagine the rest of his family can as well (not his GT family, his actual in show family like his mom dad and Aunt Khali)

I was just going to say Junior should be able to.

Would he? Technically Junior was originally a normal human, albeit one that never made it to birth. Grim's extended family does raise the question of how Grim and other reapers/skeletons were born, though. Was Grim aborted as well, or are 2 reapers able to actually create a child together? Maybe it only works if both parents are reapers, which is why Grim couldn't father a child with Mandy. It would be nice if Junior somehow had Grim's "DNA" through some type of magic or something to help solidify his position as heir to the Grim Reaper. Unless Junior's mysterious father ever becomes a part of the story. Though the whole "you're raising my kid but it's still my kid" dynamic is already in place with Minnie and Nergal Jr. The same thing will happen for any other children Mandy might have (possible ghost kid(s) via Dark Danny). It'd be nice for Grim to at least have a "blood relation" to one of his kids.

I'm getting a bit off topic here though. Going back to Minnie, I don't think we'll be seeing her return to her original body, at least not in the physical world. If they're ever in an astral/spiritual place where their true form is shown, then we'd likely see her like that there. I'd actually like to see Minnie get some new abilities from her zombified body like endless stamina or other "zombie powers." It does seem a bit unfair now for Junior to have all the power and Minnie to have pretty much nothing. Though if the WHAM story is any indication, Minnie could end up using the evil power that Mandy extracted from Mimi. If so, I'd like to see her control it and not become as mindless as Mimi (though that's probably from all of Him's abuse), just as long as Minnie gets some sort of upgrade.

Well given that BOTH his parents are also skeletons I tend to think he was simply BORN a skeleton illogical as it seems (hey if the original orgin story for Casper was he was born a ghost, this isn't all that different). The bigger issue is Jr's ability to flip back and forth from Skeleton to fleshy. Granted he only got that power after he got Nergalized, but since the functional power of Encroaching Doom Syndrome is turning a dead individual into a living one, I'm not sure how significant it would be to him. If he can get it I tend to think the Nergal symbiote can functionally "cure" him.
And I think Jr must have at least some of the Grim Family DNA since he has some of grims odd traits, like the ability to see with no eyeballs (though he apparently has enough leftover humanity that having one doesn't blind him on that side, like it does grim.)

I need to pay closer attention... despite quoting you, I still didn't realize you were talking about Mimi. I thought you were suggesting that Minnie could not be made human which would then mean your next response contradicted yourself. But you weren't... so you didn't...

Also, how many living skeletons purport to be blind due to having no functioning eyeballs?

yeah I also would prefer that if minnie gets the essence, she wont be a mindless/mind-controlled being, she'd just remain like her current personality except more outspoken(seeing as she never really expressed herself before she lost her nergal abilities)/strait to the point(meaning no more of those long poetic lines)/merciless(or at least wont holdback).

basically I imagine she'd be a lot more like her mom, except she wont be quite as level-headed and as confident as mandy is.

I would like to see interspersed moments of calm. Maybe even right after one another. I always think that the character looks super crazy when they are calm one second, then boiling hot the next, then back to calm.
Some people shouldn't have an imagination. They just abuse it.

Isn't that basically what Him does, calm and playful one moment, but angry and crazy the next?

You know who I would like to see in this comic? Peaches, from Rocko's Modern Life. Even if it's just a cameo.
