lol That face in the 6th panel. That be pure impishness right there.
Gail and Amber are gonna have to team up against a superpowered Jas at some point in the future, aren't they?
Did Max always have heterochromia?

But yeah. Love how the first two sentences in the 6th panel are almost word for word Gail's decision to keep Will.
@sun tzu: To be fair, controlling the underworld wouldn't be that villain's only goal. Usually, the plans comic book villains have are rather deadly to everyone around not on the villain's side, or have the goal of forming a dictatorship, and are often often only marginally good for the villain's 'allies'. By design. That's why the villain would be a scumbag, not because they tried to kill someone they saw as a threat that wasn't going to be neutralised any other way.

Gail's not really interested in killing anyone other than Amber. Aside from a few robberies, she doesn't really even seem too interested in crime, beyond gaining enough money and power to take care of herself and her people. Torturing Max, again, was something she allowed out of (perceived) necessity. Killing Amber seems to be partly out of revenge and partly out of practicality. Putting the bystanders in danger was a diversion playing on Amber's need to play the hero (and was done knowing Amber would save the people instead of going after Gail). She didn't even want Will kidnapped. Jasper was acting on his own, and she chewed him out royally for it and had Sean make sure Jasper *didn't* torture him like he did Max. The only reason Will's still at the flower shop is because Gail wants to know what Jasper's up to, and she hasn't laid a hand on him, or even threatened to. Again, she may not be a good person, but 'scumbag' is a tad harsh.
@sun tzu Actually, Gail wasn't too enthused about torturing him, either. She permitted it as a necessity, rather than as a desire, and only because she knew he wasn't going to tell her what she wanted to know otherwise. Jasper's the one who was gung-ho to torture Max.

As to killing Amber, Amber's an enemy. Killing enemies is part of what happens when you draw battle lines on opposite sides of the law. Legalistically, yes, it's bad, but, from a moral standpoint, both parties know what they're risking and, when you play the hero, death's a risk you accept, and, again, yes, Gail's okay with killing Amber and has tried at least twice, but she's the only one so far that she's actively tried to kill. She's actively tried to avoid killing everyone else, with the sole exception of bystanders she knew Amber would rush to save (her goal being to buy time to escape, not to kill the bystanders).
Dammit Sean! Yer a bad guy! Don't just lackadaisically waltz around like nobody's ever going to follow you after one of yer gangmates stole someone!
He's... Right behind you, Gail. As is [s]convenienttotheplot[/s] typical of his type.
Methinks Gail has realised her Dragon has an Agenda.
Lol, Sue... Yer gaydar's on the blink.

@RazorD9: It took me three days to get that.

Also, first rule of Popo's training.
Will's dead, isn't he?
Gail, might have better luck playing dumb if you were harder to read.

@Melbrinion: Engine.
Gail has no poker face, does she?
Well, the forget-me mojo saved your ass for now, Ben, but don't think your luck will let you survive Hammond's wrath if you do something stupid. You're still in danGer man.
Ben, Ben, Ben... When *will* you learn? The chick hangs out with a dude just this side of a killing spree. Forgetting her warning is one thing. Remembering it, then deliberately disobeying it? Nice knowin' ya.
Yeah, I was out drinking one day, and I got so drunk, I just stumbled on in.

Nah. Just kidding. Saw this site on the ads for another comic, decided, "Hey, the premise sounds interesting.", stopped by, started reading, been hooked ever since.
Whelp, Ben's dead. And maybe a bunch of Hammond's guys.
... Gail, you may as well have told her to get all up in his business, telling her to stay away like that.
Why do I get the feeling one of them is "The Art of Picking Up Women"?

On a more serious note, a certain adorkable supervillain might want to make sure those aren't DNA-locked and that copies actually work (by making another copy, natch).
So much for making it up to her... But let's protect the feewings of the fragile little delicate flower who's had her way all her life over the girl who's lost every guy she's liked to her best friend, amirite?
If only you could be that smooth with Tabby, huh, Gail?
