Looks like Ron’s still blaming Moonshadow for everything that went wrong in his life because he didn’t have an answer he could use, way back when…
Swear to God, but these two are going to be having this same argument, of and on, for the next fifty years.
Just like batman and superman. Still the only question is how the royals are going to react to the knowledge of power stripping and the fact that their Omni super computer figured out their trap.

Bad luck should be a superpower…
Ps argosian society isn’t as segregated as it could be otherwise the palace would have no need for the stairs seen here.
Well the non-powered servants, AKA the Softlings, would still need to get up and down to do their duties.
It is a superpower. Black Cat has it, specifically, she brings bad luck to her foes just by being near them. Thus why she calls herself Black Cat.
Bad luck is a superpower. The Black Cat gives it (or used to give it) to anyone who attacked her. Or seemed to be attacking her, when they’d actually just tripped and accidentally knocked her over.
Actually, I’d guess Moonshadow is much more like Bink from the Xanth books. Everyone thinks he had no powers at all, in fact he was banished for being powerless. Turns out he was the strongest magician of them all. His power was nearly sentient and made him impossible to kill via magic. It also hid the existed of itself even from him for many years since if people found out about it they would then be able to get around it to hurt him.
So everything it did used coincidence and randomness.
I wonder… would having diluted royal Argonian blood have meant that Ron would not have had the same intensity of powers as his father or would the addition of human DNA have created unforeseen mutations?
I’m a bit perplexed with (Mo)Ron’s attitude here. How precisely is it Tyler’s fault that the Psychos of this planets ruling circle inhibited his powers.
When the strip started, I really like Ron, but lately he’s become a major league whiner.
In essence, Moon Shadow makes bad things happen to every one around him. Ron knows this is true because pretty much every single time he gets near him, bad things happen, especially to Ron.
We know correlation is not causation, but Ron doesn’t.
Moon Shadow is like Gandalf; he’s there every time Bad Stuff happens. There is causation here, but Mo-Ron’s got it the wrong way round; bad stuff doesn’t happen because Moon Shadow is unlucky, Moon Shadow goes to where bad stuff is happening.
Maybe that’s his super power; danger and life-threatening situations are attracted to him.
I’d rather see it were the reverse. ^^
Anyway, I don’t think Tyler has any mutant powers. His parents’ super-DNA did its job admirably; when the two mixed, they produced a child free of genetic defects or flaws — and without mutations.
Given that his clone, Toby, has a massive dose of power, one wonders if Tyler did have powers at some point in his gestation, and, well, wished them away.
Of course, I’m also certain he was born on the Moon, because that seems like something his *ahem* loony parents would do.
Nah, I think Toby has powers because his DNA is flawed.
Cloning is hard, and flaws usually creep in. Once there was a first, small flaw in his genetic makeup… It was possibly like the proverbial first sheep. It catalyzed a mutation sequence that ended with Toby.
no we know why toby has powers, those chaos/order cherubs gave him powers to continue their vague competition/philosophical argument
Toby has superpowers because Victor Von Fogg used shortcuts when creating him, despite Angie’s warning about his use of “junk DNA”. The Imp and Cherub made those powers even more dangerous and uncontrollable, but it’s Victor’s fault that Toby isn’t an exact clone of Tyler.
“Ps argosian society isn’t as segregated as it could be otherwise the palace would have no need for the stairs seen here.”
What, you think that the nobles clean their own floors? The stairs are there so the unpowered servants can get around.
Also, they may be there because they look dramatic, they’re traditional, and even some nobles may enjoy the occasional stroll or jog.
Plus nothing says most of the guards are powered.
what point would there be for non powered guards. if someone doesn’t have powers their not a threat, if they do those guards would be worthless. that seems to be the noble philosophy
Also, let’s not forget that the society wasn’t always this way, maybe even before the palace was made – explicit mention was made of meta-Argosian engineers, and their legacy being used to deciper Argonite.
Next issue: Atlas 2.0! Enjoy!
That’s not a Spoiler! That’s a next issue blurb!
