Starbolts #159: The Dark Starbolts
Bad day is right. M'anta is having a really rough day. First: He finds himself on a team where everyone was a baddie the last time he checked. Then, he finds out Aquarius is gone. (Or is it?) THEN he gets jumped by Dark Mateo. AND FINALLY he finds out his wife is with Dark Mateo. That's enough to stress anyone out.
Dark Mateo's design is similar to that of Archangel when he first appeared. He had metal wings and a dark personality. As you can imagine, Dark Jenna is going to be a bit of a pyromaniac. Hence the codename "Firestarter". Good movie from the '80s, by the way. Probably one of the few really good Stephen King adaptations.
So, what's going to happen next? Why is M'anta unaffected by all of this? We'll see next comic. I made some more tweaks to Manta's sprites. I like it a lot. In fact, I also like Dark Mateo's wings. I wonder how they'd look on regular Mateo. Hmmm...
(Yes, I've already used those wings on regular Mateo.) More Dark Starbolts goodness next time!
