Yeah, good intense page of Hazel mulling all of this over, letting the threat of Xmarlek hang overhead and sink in ominously.

I love how even though he's clearly taken some hits and isn't prepared for this, Hazel is rolling back quick. He's ready to take on both Xmarlek and Starchild if it comes down to it, and will stake his claim and protect his throne. Remember; he got to where he is with cunning and planning, and he won't be easy to take out now that he's got his bearings.

Hazel is one of my favorite villains we have, so was just really cool to see him rally like this and show that he's stronger than anyone saw coming; it wouldn't surprise me if Xmarlek was honestly expecting him to have already caved or turn tail and run.

Yeah, pretty fond of how this one turned out. Think it's a good luck at Hazel recognizing the gravity of the situation but being cool and confident in the face of it, to the point he's not even bothering to postpone his beef with Alex for it.

I kind of try to walk a careful line with Hazel. He's arrogant, he's impulsive, he has obvious temper issues, but he's not an idiot. He's not taking Xmarlek lightly but he's also confident enough that he isn't panicking over it, think it makes for a nice balance.
