Oh, I think I get it. Mr Mighty had taken something that was damping his powers (either as part of his "playtime" with Jane, or just to get around the Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex issue), and this whole thing was a big shell game to get Jane a chance to dose him with the antidote.
Thanks for the webcomic recommendation. I recently did an Archive Trawl on someone else's, and concluded that the art was unlikely to get any less clumsy or the characters any less irritating, but "Nothing Special" seems to be vastly better right out of the gate.
Some wives dote on their husbands, some are anti...
So, it was her, and Mr Mech is in for a bit of a shock. Well, a bit more of a shock. Hopefully a bigger shock than Summer got.

Oh, and I should have applauded last issue's Pratchett reference. Remiss of me...

How to defeat a hero
Mr. Mighty is down, but is he out? Does he really feel better now that he's had a little lie-down? Will these two villains actually team up? Will Summer ever get to meet Chris Hemsworth? And most importantly, what the heck is going on? Answers coming soon (well, some of them). Hit the TWC Vote button for a hint!

FINALLY got this page done. Sorry, it's been a busy time these last couple of weeks. On the bright side, I *am* getting a tax refund, if the government doesn't shut down again.

Recently discovered the webcomic "Nothing Special" by Katie Cook. Magic, romance, interdimensional travel, and vegetable ghosts.

(Latest episodes are at the top of the list, so start at the bottom.)

Off to the gym for me now!
@Manga Shoggoth:

Well, Jane wasn't wearing that a minute ago when she pushed Summer out the window, and I don't think she could get changed that fast. I suppose it could be a hologram...

EDIT: Never mind, she actually might have been. You can just see a purple dress of about the right cut under her bathrobe in some of the earlier strips. Still doesn't explain why Jane and Marion would permit Summer to get zapped (or why Jane would drug her). They're good people, they'd keep their games to themselves.
Why is she named for a BDSM toy?
For those not aware there is a thing called a Violet Wand that is like one of those lightning balls with the power turned up enough to feel from the outside that produces a pleasant (for some people) tingling sensation, for other people it's more of a low-power taser.
Robbie: “Are you, uh, a real villain?”
Bobbie: “Well, uh, technically... nah.”
Robbie: “Have you ever caught a good guy, like, uh, like a real SUPERHERO?”
Bobbie: “Nah.”
Robbie: “Have you ever tried a disguise?”
Bobbie: “Nah, nah...”
Robbie: “Alright! I can see that I will have to TEACH you... HOW to be VILLAINS!”
Hopefully not too much Addition...
@Smythe: It may not have come across well, but the "what She and Mr Mighty might be doing" paragraph refers to the bedroom antics that are hinted to have taken place before the current scene. I suspect that we (and Summer) are going to be enlightened at some point.

At no point have I thought this was a training exercise. It is serious - Mr Mighty is bleeding, for one thing, and it seems to take a lot to do that.
On Addition
@Manga Shoggoth: I'm also pretty sure Jane wouldn't throw narcotics in her daughter's face. And I'm equally sure that Mr Mighty would not condone using drugs on his little girl either.

This is not a training exercise.
Hmmmm
Well, the mask looks like Iron Jane's old mask, and the kick in the preview looks a little like the one she dropped on Mr Mighty in her flashback.

But I doubt that it is her - why should she be dressed up as a villainess? (I don't want to speculate about what she and Mr Mighty might be doing...)
The TWC button also looks like a broken image to me as well.

*returns to lurking*
She's a real knockout
Aha! A new villainess! Who looks oddly familiar for some reason!

Will she actually join the battle? And against whom? Click on the TWC Vote button for a preview! (BTW, can everyone see the vote button? It sometimes shows up as a broken link icon under the actual comic, but still works if you click on it.)

It's been an adventurous week driving. On Monday, I was driving for Uber, stopped to pick up a passenger, and a guy who hadn't cleared the snow off his windows backed into me. Then on Friday, while driving home, I got to witness an accident right in front of my when a semi sideswiped an SUV with a family inside. Luckily, no one was hurt; the two little boys thought it was an adventure.

Hope everyone is surviving the winter weather. If you live someplace warm, hope you're enjoying the warm weather.
Play Misty for me?
@Delta-v: Her eye beams were only out of control when they first became active.
http://eheroes.smackjeeves.com/comics/2133674/ch13-34/

Since then, she's been practicing on controlling them.
http://eheroes.smackjeeves.com/comics/2133677/ch13-36/

They can go off accidentally if she's startled ...
http://eheroes.smackjeeves.com/comics/2133667/ch13-28/

... or upset.

(One of these days, I have to learn how to properly embed links in these comments.)
Whatever happened to her uncontrollable eye beams?
Have I told you ... ?
Have I told you that I know what I'm doing? 'Cause I don't always.

Who is sneaking up behind Summer? Do they actually plan on fighting, or are they just fogging around? Am I ashamed of that play on words? (Yes I am.) Click on the TWC button for a preview of this newcomer ...

Not much else to say, just hunkering down and trying to survive the winter weather. Stay safe, everyone.
And once the paperwork is filled out...'what do you mean I'm your sidekick now?!!!'
Nah.
@Manga Shoggoth: The previous clothes-tearing was done with a claw - it could be argued to be possibly deliberate. The zappy attack was an obvious killing attack that failed, which makes the clothes incidental damage.

Which won't stop Miss Mighty from making Our Guest Villian's name "Mighty Sore".

I still smell a "This was a tutorial" rat.... Or there's something fishy about it.... Or perhaps a rat with a fishy.....
Hmmmm
Well, he's blasted most of Summers' clothes off - isn't that going to get him on the aforementioned naughty list?
