One thing I haven’t really established in the comic so far is that Max has a sort of “golden triangle” of power distribution. We know she’s quite tough, and she has a power pool on top of that she can use to max out one attribute, but usually she just divides her reserves up between strength, speed and armor. That usually makes her stronger than most strong guys (like Hiro but not Stalwart) and tougher than most tough guys, but Vehemence is nearly matching her in all three now, which is a very unusual situation for her. If he manages to exceed her in any of those attributes she’ll need to make some choices about how best to redistribute her power, like dropping her armor and putting it into speed and playing keep away.
It’s Thanksgiving in America today (Thursday anyway) so enjoy that, and I just want to casually remind everyone about the Amazon affiliate link, it being Black Friday eve and all. And if you don’t like Amazon for whatever reason, think of using that link as cutting into their profit margins slightly.
