Mondays and Fridays
Doesn't everyone have a hazmat suit?

Of course Jane has a hazmat suit.  Doesn't everyone?

Once or twice before we've mentioned the "Chicago Convention", a set of guidelines for superhero-supervillain confrontations.  One of the articles states that, for minor-league participants, personal residences are not to be attacked.  June is also guilty of several other infractions of the rules ... time to break out the lawyers.  (There are clear-cut precedents in cannon law.)

Tried a different layout this time ... I couldn't fit all the figures into normal-sized panels properly.  Hope you like it.

Have a Happy Pretend-you're-Irish day this weekend.

Joseph Rasche (thewarriorofmanyfaces) says:

...okay, that's utterly BRILLIANT of the heroes. No attacking the homes of minor-league heroes? No wonder he can get away with wearing the costume around the house.

Of course, eventually someone smarter than June is gonna break the rules and get someone killed and all that messy stuff, but I imagine they're more worried about the major-leaguers. Speaking of whom, how do they keep their families safe if they're not covered by the Chicago Convention? (Come to think of it, why Chicago? Or were you just going for alliteration.)

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

It also applies to the villains, which is why Mr. Mighty can't just walk over to Dr. Unpleasant's house (which is about two blocks away).

Major-leaguers are usually strong enough to protect themselves (places like the Baxter Building or the Fortress of Solitude have their own security systems).

And I picked Chicago because I lived in the area for a few years ... who knows, a dramatic flashback scene on top of a recognizable landmark might appear some day.

Mary Potts (queenofcapes) says:

Yeah, the layout works perfectly on this page. I nominate this strip as Crowning Moment of Funny for the whole arc thus far. :)

Sean Duggan (duggansc) says: I was going to correct you on "cannon law"... then I got the joke. *groan*
Wayne (wayne) says:

I just hope your Chicago is more true to life than Butcher's Dresdenverse Chicago, not that I'd know the diff as I'm a Phoenix boy now in Southern NM.

Alfred Kügler (madmcal) says:

Such agreements tend to be enforced by both sides.

The villains (or the mobsters or whoever) don't threaten the families of the 'good' guys and in reverse the law enforcers don't... lets say nitpick the families of the lawless.

No 24h arrests for jaywalking, no weekly search and seizures at home, no daily visit at the workplace.

No 5 years in prison for a bit dope...

As a rule the villains are much more dangerous to other villains who violate these agreements than the good guys.
