I'm the guy that which does Love and Capes.
Just finished reading everything, and I am *hooked*. Love this comic, and can’t wait to read more!
… “Challenge accepted.”
Oh, and by the way, I’m the greatest deductive mind of this generation.
Just had to slip that in there, in a completely not-blatantly-bragging-about-the-size-of-my-brain kind of way.
I lift, too.
At this point I’m still only 90% sure that Paul’s parents know how he spends his nights.
Clearly, someone needs to work on his modesty.
Challenge accepted, indeed: Paul said his was the greatest deductive mind of THIS generation. Perhaps it’s time to dust off whichever the closest public-domain superhero comparable to Batman to pull off the surprise party of the century? (I wonder what the status is on Hero Alliance’s Sentry or Big Bang Comics’ Knight Watchman? Perhaps a slightly-altered version of the Squadron Supreme’s Nighthawk–the version from 1970, not the miniseries or, for that matter, that episode of “Super Hero Squad”…)
there is more Love and Capes available here.
NoRAd – Ditto.
It’s funny how everyone in the comments fixated on Paul as bragging, when it was clearly gentle humor being made at Zoe’s expense. Something is only “obvious” if you both know it and think of it when it matters.
Hate to break it to you, but it’s only bragging when it either:
1) isn’t true or
2) isn’t necessary to say it.
When the person you are talking to (Zoe) apparently hasn’t got a clue and you have to point (something ‘obvious’) out, it’s humor and explanation, not bragging.
@Syncline I tend to agree with this point. It sounds more like he’s quoting what has become part of his hero identity’s tagline which Zoe most likely knows, but hasn’t quite copped on to the full implications of that particular fact.
Then again, maybe they aren’t trying that hard; that “greatest deductive mind of all time” didn’t pop up out of nowhere.
As for Zoe, I’m wondering if, perhaps subconsciously, she’s still having trouble with the secret identity thing…she’s in love with Paul, not so much Darkblade?
Shades of Sherlock Holmes’ Surprise Party.
