One thing I noticed doing this is how Pearce is a Damage Sponge.... but then noticed that Alex is ALSO a damage sponge. A lot of his fights involve the tactic of playing possum, rope-a-doping, and just letting the enemy wail on him.

Also Martin pointed out that have Pearce be a loving family-man with no super-powers who prefers the company of gentlemen sort of made him a weird anti-Alex. In general was a character sort of like Decay Conductor where he was invented as a random aside but we enjoyed him way too much. ^^

I think this is kind of where it becomes apparent an issue we were kind of having with this of realizing we didn't really know what kind of stuff would just be lying around some random abandoned warehouse. Kind of an overused setting in the comics anyway - going to try and avoid going into this territory for awhile after this.

Either way still happy with the page on the whole. Like getting to get a little bit more insight into Pearce and learn more about him.

Something I was really trying to get across with the character is that he's a total asshole, and I think this is a good tipping point on that - starts out talking about how he's doing this for his family only to conclude the point by emphasizing how it's entirely for the purposes of stupid luxury stuff he already has, all while basically using his kids as ammo to try and get in his foe's head. Works pretty well as a counterpart of sorts to Alex, though that wasn't really something I realized as ideas for the character were coming together.

Either way, hope everyone enjoys and come by for more on Monday!
