As a kid, Victor dreamed of training to be a superhero. That didn't go so well.

Now, nine years later, Victor is a resident at the Earl Estate, a home for kids who haven't yet demonstrated that they can control their powers. With his 18th birthday - and a transfer - only a few weeks away, he has one last chance to prove he is capable enough to receive his licence and go home.

Inhibit started in January 2015 and updates every Wednesday!

you know that classic saying: a true friend will electrocute someone and leave in a panic, giving you a good opportunity to escape a social situation. my grandmother says that all the time.

Nate guides Victor around a corner. "Have you managed to use your variation yet?" "No, I'm not very good," Victor replies. "That's fine," Nate says, smiling.

Panel 2.
"I wasn't either at first. You'll get there once you've had a bit of training." The deeper into the building they go, the more people they see. Victor looks at them with interest. They're all wearing similar uniforms to Nate, but with different patterns. "From you?" Victor asks.

Panel 3.
"Yep! My mentor said I was ready to be a mentor to someone else," Nate says as they pass an open door to a training room of some sort. Victor looks in just as someone throws a punch; their opponent sharply brings up their arm, encased in ice. The fist connects with the ice with a loud CRACK.

Panel 4.
Victor looks worriedly up at Nate as he continues talking. "You're the first kid I'll have trained. If this goes well, I might be promoted to an actual team member, so try to help me out, yeah?"

Panel 5.
Victor glances away, looking upset.

Panel 6.
Nate finally notices something is up. "You alright?"

Panel 7.
"My arms hurt," Victor says. Nate puts a comforting hand on his shoulder. "Let me have a look," he says. "They always strap these things on too tight."

Panel 8.
He loosens the devices on Victor's outstretched arms. "There. How's that?" "I don't like it. I wanna take them off," Victor says.

Panel 9.
Nate puts his hands on his hips and puffs his chest out pompously. "Sorry, little man. You've gotta keep 'em on. Just like me. They're inhibitors. Keeps you from sparking out on us. These things are state-of-the-art." Victor scowls.

Panel 10.
"They're too heavy!" Victor complains, throwing his hands in the air. "You'll get used to it," Nate replies.

<span class="answer" id="A1"><div align="left"><h5>Panel 1.
"I'd like to introduce you to someone," says Emma, gesturing at the boy in the striped uniform with vague disinterest. The boy is standing with his hands behind his back. "This is Nathan." "Nate," the boy corrects, but he smiles. "He's electro-manipulative, just like you," Emma continues, ignoring him. "Nathan's going to help you get nice and settled, alright?"

Panel 2.
Emma and the guard begin to walk away. "I'll see you later at the induction," Emma says, no longer smiling. Victor is still looking at the devices on his arms. "Uh, but-" he says, confused. "I thought-"

Panel 3.
Emma and the guard leave without another word. "Come on, little man," Nate says, beckoning him on. "I'll take you to your dorm."

Panel 4.
Victor looks nervously after Emma. "Mum said I'm supposed to go with that lady."

Panel 5.
He finally looks at Nate and his expression changes. "...Why are you wearing that?"

Panel 6.
"What, the uniform?" Nate says, raising his eyebrows and looking down at himself. "It means I'm a trainee. What's wrong with it?"

Panel 7.
"It looks dumb," Victor says, grimacing. Nate smirks, hands in his pockets. "Well, you're getting one too, smartass."

Panel 8.
"We'd better get going," Nate says. They begin walking. There is a sign on the wall with two arrows; the arrow pointing the way the way they came says "Reception" and "Blocks A to N". They're heading in the direction of "Blocks O to Z". Nate continues: "You'll like where you're sleeping. It's a big room with lots of kids your age. It's basically one big sleepover."

<span class="answer" id="A1"><div align="left"><h5>Panel 1.
Emma leads Victor through the building; the aqua blue of the foyer steadily gives way to a darker teal. "So you take after your dad, huh?" Emma says, making a note on her tablet. "Uh-huh!" Victor says, skipping after her.

Panel 2.
She looks down at him. "And now you're following in his footsteps by joining Urquhart? That's great!"

Panel 3.
"No, he worked at Miller," Victor says proudly. "He was a--" "Wonderful," Emma interupts.

Panel 4.
"This is the last one for today," she says to a guard in the same blue uniform and helmet as the guard at the gate. He is wearing one blue medical glove. There is someone else with him; a boy of about fifteen or sixteen, grinning at Victor with his arms folded. He is wearing a different kind of uniform; a dark grey-blue, almost black, with a thick band of white running from the left shoulder across the chest and under the right arm. He is wearing something strange and metallic with a blue screen on both his arms.

Panel 5.
Victor stands uncertainly as Emma continues to talk to the guard. "Yes ma'am," the guard says. "Were there any problems with the others?" Emma asks. "The cryo refuses to use her inhibitor," replies the guard. "If Jeremy can't sort her out, get someone else to look after her," Emma says. "Inhibit this one first."

Panel 6.
The guard looms over Victor, holding two strange tube-like devices. "Alright son. Hold still."

Panel 7.
"Huh? What--" Victor says, trying to step away, but the guard grabs his arm with his gloved hand.

Panel 8.
The guard shoves Victor's arms through the devices so he is wearing them on his forearms, like the other boy. "Ow, that hurts!" Victor grimaces. "Stop wriggling, says the guard.

Panel 9.
Victor's mouth wobbles as he looks down at his arms. "Don't fiddle with them, please," Emma says curtly.

<span class="answer" id="A1"><div align="left"><h5>Panel 1.
Victor stays seated on the couch but continues to watch the waterfall, smiling.

Panel 2.
A shadow is cast over him as someone approaches and he looks up, unsure. "Hi there!"

Panel 3.
"My name is Emma Esser," says the woman, smiling pleasantly. She has high, sharp cheekbones and an equally sharp business suit. "I'm Urquhart's director."

Panel 3.
She reaches her right hand out. "Are you the mother?" she asks. "Yes, nice to meet you," Bethany says, getting up to shake her hand.

Panel 4.
Emma puts her hands on her knees and bends down. "And you must be Victor!" she says. "Are you excited?" "Yeah!" says Victor.

Panel 5.
"Wonderful," says Emma, still smiling. She consults her tablet. "If you could make sure he has all his things, I'll take him inside."

Panel 6.
"I can't come in with him?" Bethany asks worriedly, wringing her hands. "Don't worry, we'll take very good care of him," Emma says. "It's part of my policy to give careful attention to each new child."

Panel 7.
Victor is clutching the straps of his backpack, eager to set off. Bethany puts a hand on his back. "Alright, go with the nice lady. I'll see you in a week. Please be good."

Panel 8.
"Okay, bye, Mum!" Victor says, with sparkles in his eyes. He runs after Emma, not even glancing back at Bethany, who watches him go with a hand over her heart and a worried expression.
