There's a few cameos here from other Comic Fury super hero books.

"Being a superhero is a young man's game"... I have SO many issues with that line of thinking. Still, that does seem to be the way these days. It's kind o a no-win situation.
Good to see some familiar faces from familiar comics here!
(I'm particularly fond of Lady Spectra & Sparky!)

Thanks for the comment. There'll be a few more familiar faces in the coming pages. So what's your beef with Jess' view about old heroes? Are you fond of the idea of older costumed crime fighters.

How much time ya got?! :D

Seriously, though, It's not really about Jess's particular view, or even "OLD" heroes, so much as I have a few certain issues with TEEN heroes. To be completely honest, The age issue in superheroes in general, really is kind of a sore spot for me on BOTH sides of the argument.
I could write it all out, but, I'd just come off as the crotchety aging comic geek that I am telling all y'all young'uns to Get Off My Lawn.

I'd love to hear some ranting about teen favourite hero IS robin though.

I love Robin, too (all of them except Damian Wayne, mind you.)
It's not always the characters that I have issues with, so much as the situations that they're put in, and, I guess, the tropes and traditionalisms that come with being a superhero.
When it comes to teen supers, specifically, there's never a believeable middle ground. They're written like preteens in a bad sitcom - they're either WAY too smart, or WAY too dumb.
Then there's "Peter Parker Syndrome", in which a young superhero cannot use his/her power for ANYTHING that can be construed as "self-serving", even something as simple as flying to school so that they won't get a 'tardy', or even NOT using their power to stand up to a bully who makes their lives hell, as that is, supposedly, not only a 'misuse' of their power (which, of course, must be PUNISHED, less the teen AND the readers start thinking that there can be good deeds without consequences), but also a slippery slope to THE DARK SIDE.
Mind you, this only seems to be a thing that happens to teens and young heroes, whereas, adult heroes can fuck up non-stop, to an almost supervillainous degree

and it's swept under the rug like it never happened.
That's the tip of the iceberg for my rant on teen heroes. The older heroes are a different rant altogether. (But, the Tony Stark thing is a piece of it.

Ba ha ba ha. Interesting angle, good points.

Though honestly Jess is being unnecessarily harsh to a long time friend. In fact she's been rather abrasive to all of the people around her.

She's a grouch who thinks she's top shit. It might be something to do with Magpie getting brought up.
