I was tempted to have him say, "There's no need to fear ...", but actually there is.

Reader Gwen called it ... he's pretty!  (Pretty annoying, that is.)

Kid Charisma (Chris Mann Jr.) is from a family of superheroes with charisma-based powers.  His dad is Charisman, his grandfather was Captain Charisma.  Villains surrender to them, just because they're such great guys.  Female villains commit crimes so they can get caught by these charismatic heroes.

For those of you who remember the short-lived WCI High, earlier versions of Chris and his dad appeared there (as did teenage versions of Mr. Mighty, Jane, Goldie, Dot Dash, and a few others).  There are one or two other characters from WCI High who may make it into this comic ... someday, if I can keep updating regularly.

Falling temperatures, falling leaves ... must be fall.

Ah, no! We have a BARD! This is the! Worst! Possible! Thing!

Nah, I jest, it'll all be fine (so long as this guy isn't a creepazoid who abuses his powers for personal gain...)

Sam Schmern (the_occupant) says:

Would gay supervillains also commit crimes in order to get caught by this Fabio wannabe?

Ralf Corsten (gerbilcomics) says:

The problem with charisma-based heroes is that they should have an effect on the reader as well. If they don't, then they look pretty powerless. And charisma is sort of subjective, so that might be a problem.

I am also imagining D. Christopher Mann, Esq (Capt. C's granddad) spending his time saving damsels from railroad tracks at the turn of the century, because that is what charisma-based heroes should do. And showing off his moustache at the 1904 St. Louis Olympics while failing to save the marathon.

SPARKLES! *hides* Okay, that's something scary for Halloween, Ed!

Robert Paige (freezer) says:

Nice to see Captain California still getting work.

Vlad Long (mrttao) says:

the fact she knew about it and was upset means it a mind control based thing and its only short term and short ranged. So when he leaves they remember but are not happy...

Either that or she FEARS that is the case.

Ah, yes. I was afraid of that.  He's super-pretty.  I'll bet that's ALL he is, too. Slower than a speeding octagenarian, able to leap tall curbs in a single bound, more powerful than a rhinocerous beetle, he's...well, except for the pretty part, he's pretty much normal, I'll bet.

Joshua Deming (longshotlink) says:

I'm wondering if Summer will even be affected. She's got the mask, and the whole eye beam powers. She didn't seem to be catching the power of charm in the last comic. Or maybe it's just because of her combo of powers. I'd like to bet she'll be the only one who isn't clamoring for his attention.
