The Shield's balls are exploding and he's not afraid to use them again you! Gotta hand it to the artist: that's some fun use of perspective.
Of course, as a result, you get this odd impression that the Shield is somehow throwing forward mines that wind up behind him, like some sort of fifth dimension baseball pitcher. Or like one of those shiny lenticular postcards they used to make. By Olympus, those things used to freak me out as kid....
So, do the boats and planes all belong to the bad guys? Are the bad guys (Moscovians, probably) dropping mines or their own ships? Is the Shield catching the mines only to them throw on our own ships?
I give. The Shield is simply beyond mere logic.
Oh, how I wish the Shield would visit Washington. But for that we'd have to be able to provide him with one of those vast expanses with infinitely recessing backgrounds his fifth dimensionality requires. Hm...
It DOES look as though he just blew up that ship, doesn't it? But he does it with such obvious panache that I have to forgive him.
"used to make"? Maybe they don't do postcards anymore (though I suspect they do), but I saw "Star Wars The Clone Wars" lenticular trading cards in line at the department store checkout (right next to the Obama trading cards). I'd be surprised if you didn't have them in Big Monkey.
Love the blog! Check out the site we just launched featuring Superuseless Superpowers...
