Sydney’s plan continues, this time with a more active result. I hope no one thought Dabbler was going to have to do jumping jacks until Vehemence’s power ran out, or he passed out from hunger. The hypnoboobs (all glory to them) effect isn’t that strong. It’s seriously distracting, but it’s not “mouse pushing a lever to get cocaine until it starves to death.” (Which according to a quick search I did to make sure I got the drug right, isn’t even a thing that happened, or at least comes with a giant asterisk, but it has its uses as an apocryphal tale.)
The flashback panel on this page is supposed to point out that super speed does you no good if you’re caught flat footed. Remember Vehemence was nearly matching Maxima’s speed earlier, at least while Max was doing the even spread with her power pool, and Sydney wanted to make sure Jiggawatt got a chance to do her part before being swatted away. The funny thing is, before I went back and looked at the page to pull the clip, I was sure Maxima said “Well I have to be ready for it!” I considered changing it and making a note that’s how Sydney recalled it to make it more clear why she included that snippet of her day in her plan – but… I thought that would be distracting and hopefully the page makes enough sense without any tinkering.
