Heheh... Yeah, this is our set-up for this chapter. Alex, Ivy, Daryll and Grant all teaming up to foil a train robbery. ^^ ..... And also Christina is there!

Martin pointed out that since this was a gym kinda-sorta meant for superheroes, pretty much everyone in this page could potentially go out and take part in this. But since that'd get unruly fast, everyone has to be given a reason to not take part.

Kinda all I got. Hope you guys enjoy. ^^

Yeah, Christina was a pretty late decision to include directly in on this - is kind of why she was limited to the cover box rather than being part of the crowd walking the tracks like the rest of them, basically just decided on it as I was writing the page. Do think some fun stuff comes out of that decision though, definitely a move for the better.

In general I pretty quickly knew who all I wanted to include on this, but I needed to strip down the potential alternative options who are on hand for the purposes of the story. Think led to a decent page here, like bouncing around between everyone getting a lot of interplay you wouldn't normally really get out of it.

Really biggest thing heading into this I wavered on was whether or not to include Daryl, since he's a bit out of place with the sort of theme of having Alex, Ivy, and Grant in a team together. I did really want to use the character here though, think he has some fun powers, I have a good time writing him, and I'm wanting to establish him as a pretty prominent character going forward, so did feel like a good inclusion in this.

Also get to revisit the Misty blind-dating thing, first brought up back in Storms Are Brewing. It's been a planned facet of the character for a long time, but it really doesn't get the chance to come up much; she talks about it a little further a page or two from now.

One thing that wasn't planned was Jack bringing up having seen Alex in costume very early in. I had always planned for that to go somewhere specific, but it's been ages since it came up and I couldn't really think of a way to do this scene without him being open about it so I decided to just go ahead and have him bring up this info now.
