--> '''FeliciaDay (amid much discussion)''': Uh... what's the writers do? I don't...
*** The [[FridgeLogic problem]] with this should be fairly obvious: FeliciaDay ''is'' a [[WebVideo/TheGuild writer]], yet is apparently unaware of the function of a writer.

*** [[FeliciaDay Felicia]] does have justification! Neil's Song begins with him glad to have all his [[WithFriendsLikeThese friends]] out of the picture so that he can run a commentary about [[{{Jerkass}} how awesome he is]], and then goes on to describe the rest of the cast and crew as expendable. If someone said that to me I'd probably use a profanity too.

Why are [[spoiler: Penny's dying words, "Captain Hammer will save us."]] Is it just Joss pouring salt into the wound?
* Possibly. He does like to do that. Or it could be that she was disoriented (because of the dying) and said something that flitted across her mind, no matter how little sense it made. Or she was in denial of what had happened and scared and wanted to feel like she did back when she thought Billy was her innocent friend and Captain Hammer was an awesome hero. Also, pretty sure you don't have to spoiler stuff on a Headscratchers page, since they're specifically for discussing plot points of the media in question.
* I got the impression that that line was part of his original story concept. It's there because the rest of the story ''was built around it.''
* I assumed that she hasn't fully pieced everything together, so from her point of view A) She believes Billy and Dr Horrible are two different people, B) Dr. Horrible is a threat to everybody, including herself and her friend Billy, C) Captain Hammer is a bit of a jerk but is still a hero, and D) Captain Hammer isn't defeated (she didn't see him run away). So from her point of view, she's telling Billy what she believes is true: Captain Hammer will save them from Dr. Horrible.

If Captain Hammer looks down on anyone showing signs of intelligence or creativity, how in the world would ''[[IdiotHero he]]'' know how to defuse a bomb? I mean, does he take [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Rf1xyPJjmo the Guile approach]] and just use violence to solve the problem?
* ''Yes.'' That is exactly how he operates! He probably assumed that the blinking thing on top of the van was a bomb, so he hit it until it stopped blinking.
* Let's just say there's a reason I have taken to calling him Captain [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer "When all you have is a" Hammer]], despite its lack of catchyness. The thought of him trying to "defuse" an actual bomb though, it boggles the mind.

* Standard "supervillain league" stuff. Basically you help each other out when someone's plan calls for it, and if the guy with the best plan actually succeeds in conquering the world, well, obviously he had a better plan than you did. (Of course then you can try and backstab him.) That's just how it's done.

* Bad Horse is known as the 'Thoroughbred of Sin', but when we finally see him he doesn't appear to be a thoroughbred. Is this some kind of [[ClarkKenting clever disguise]]?

** Captain Hammer is an idiot, and has such bad handwriting he has to write '''REALLY BIG''' for it to be legible. He's a LrageHam even in print.

Added DiffLines:

** Two things. A) Captain Hammer has a lot more than a passing familiarity with Dr Horrible. Penny may have seen his pictures, but she didn't notice him at all during their actual encounter, so she wouldn't be able place his face. And B) Penny is an optimist, so she wouldn't think "the cute guy from the laundromat is Dr. Horrible" unless presented with more evidence than the fact that they look similar to each other.

** The way I see it mirrors some higher ones, except remember that they don't know Penny's death was an accident, they don't know that Dr. Horrible loved her, and they DO know that she was Captain Hammer's girl friend. So as far as they know, he killed Captain Hammer's girl friend, which is a super villain classic. The fact that he defeated Captain Hammer (even if he didn't die) probably doesn't hurt either.

** The simple answer is that he doesn't have a heal ray. It could be that there's no such ability in this world, or that he's never built one, or that he has one sitting at home and didn't think to bring it. Rule of Narrative Causality. Penny needed to die because that was the point of the story. Also worth noting, that this is a super hero world and super heroes rarely get healing rays.
