Starbolts #304: Crystal's Tale
This week I delve into the backstories of Crystal and Dennis. Dennis isn't in this comic, sure. But, he is Crystal's adopted brother and he was most likely in the farmhouse. I'll give you all the lowdown of what happened next. Dennis was upstairs watching the argument take place. After Marcus ran off to get Crystal, he busted out of the house in his armored form like the Kool-Aid Man. It was just enough of a distraction for Mateo to fly to the back and nab Dennis.
Marcus and Mateo met up and heard a Terra Nova helicopter in the distance. More on them in a sec. They got to their jet and headed back to HQ. Hmm. If those parents could see Dennis now, I bet he'd reduce the farmhouse to rubble. It should be noted that Dennis and Crystal haven't seen their parents since that day.
As far as Terra Nova goes, before D.I.S.C.O.R.D. came back, they were pretty much the major terrorist group. D.I.S.C.O.R.D. returned and absorbed TN into them. Terra Nova did train some metahumans and some are in the Legion. Once Crystal infiltrates them, it'd be an interesting look at the life she might have had had the Starbolts not intervened.
Now I am going to give a couple shout-outs! First to Brad Nephillum for his epic review of my comic! Thanks, man. Check out the review here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9fvuDLQc6Q
The second shout-out goes to JesuOtaku for helping me figure out what the terrain of Bowling Green Kentucky is like. Little hilly and the farmland's flat. Thanks, J!
Anyway, I was told by my editor that the comic has "maximum feels". Looking back, it does kind of read like a show on the CW. Imagine that. See ya next time!
