Mondays and Fridays
It's not supposed to do that ...

In case you didn't know, girls with super strength normally aren't allowed to use hammers.  What will Summer do with this new-acquired accessory?  Can she find matching shoes?  We shall see.

So you all figure it's the mask, hmm?  Maybe, maybe not ... I'm not saying.  Yet.

Actually, I've the next scene in my mind for quite some time.  I'm glad when I can finally get around to drawing some of these extra-special episodes; it's all the connecting bits in-between that are hard.

Send help to the storm victims!  Then go out and vote (if you're in the USA, that is).  Then vote for us on TopWebComics (if you're anywhere)!

It's OK when she'll be pounding on a super-jerk that can take the damage? Charisma isn't his only power, is it?

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Good guess, Mark!

Joseph Rasche (thewarriorofmanyfaces) says:

He's definitely invulnerable or close to it. Has some sort of ability to charm others. Probably be able to estimate it by figuring out why it doesn't work on Summer.

So, pheromones? If so, that'd mean they don't work on invulnerable beings, and Kid Charisma would have figured out that invulnerable beings are unaffected by now. Unlikely.

Short-range telepathy? If it's limited to those who see him directly, the mask would explain Summer's immunity. A distinct possibility.

It's probably not something about his voice, given that Summer hears him just fine.

Magic? Unlikely. Magic works on everything.

Yeah, I'm gonna go with the short-ranged telepathy thing for now. Makes the most sense.

Chris Bacon (necroskippy) says:

I'm guessing that the universe either figures he can take the damage and/or he's a big enough jerk to deserve it.  After all what he's doing isn't very different from rufing their drinks

Pastangum Felinix (pastangum) says:

That's evil, Ed, letting us guess and wonder whether you're still making it up as you go. I /had/ just assumed it was the translucent mask, but now you've got me thinking... It could be that his Charisma power only works on those who'd be attracted to him. But then it'd be so unpredictable, a C-rank power instead of the obvious A-rank he has, and that also says things about Summer.

Ooooh! Does anyone else remember the mega-SNAP? Maybe Summer just has that much resistance to powers such as his charm. She does look a little off-balance in panel 2, then recovers quickly.

chic geek (chicgeek1) says:

Oooh, I want to see Charisma Creep taken down a peg! *passes out popcorn* And I'm very curious as to what happened before with him and Carrie. I mean, she begs Summer not to leave her alone with him. There's a story there.

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

Ahhh, she has access to The Hammers.  Jerry must have perceived her need and connected her to the magic of The Hammers.

Sam Schmern (the_occupant) says:

I still say Lesbian.
