Starbolts #236: Cheating Death
Well, bad things happen when you cheat death. No, not in Mateo's case. He was never in any real danger. The guy can fly and he woke up in the nick of time. Metahuman biology saved him. His body is adapted to withstand high altitudes. So, Tenera could have chased Robkas. She just chose to save Mateo because, well, she thought he was in danger.
Still, it turned out okay. Robkas has vanished. He will be back, though. You can't keep a good villain down. Especially one like him. But, he'll be back sooner or later. Though Laura, my beta reader, is very happy to see him gone. Oh and on a production note, that flaming skull went through a NUMBER of drafts. First it looked like one of those tiki masks. Then a floating head. Then I decided on a flaming skull. That looked like Ghost Rider a bit so I decided on what you see here.
I think I had way too much fun designing that. Still, Robkas is gone. Loose ends are wrapped up. Time to bring on the next Starbolts adventure!
