** I'm pretty sure that Emp just doens't want to kick a man who's lying down, and that's why he doesn't call her on what counts as "serious crimes". Anglerfish himself just doesn't like to regard his son as a bad person. I's kind of how people always say that "h's in bad company" -- it's always the company that's bad.

** The chapter ends with Anglerfish offering to give Emp a hallucination of a better job, so maybe that's a normal way to use it.

** I have a really good grasp (I think) on why she doesn't: Remember MacGyver? WHAT'S THE ONE THING HE WON'T USE? Guns. EVER. The only time he does is to... Shoot. Down. A. DOOR. I would swear to God that's the same reason. She's noble, honest and incorruptibly pure. She's a [[FriendToAllLivingThings Friend to everything]] determinator who will take NO CRAP from anything even remotely hostile.

** When Ocelotina first met the team, she convinced Major Havoc, dWARF and Protean to appear in her 'instructional videos', so they may have actually set up an ongoing deal allowing her to use the superhomeys in her videos.

** One possibility is that its because its ''Empowered'' they're talking about. She's thought of as harmless bondage shoulder candy. Harming her does nothing for your rep. In fact some villains might enjoy having a gorgeous heroine around that they can take down easily and then take trophy photos with. Also [[spoiler: Sistah Spooky's spell might contribute to this line of thinking.]] Ultimately they have nothing to gain by harming Emp aside from possibly damaging their own reputation.

** One possibility is that for whatever reason Hell acts in accordance to Judeo-Christian codes. And since Hannah effectively [[spoiler: committed suicide, she's in hell since suicide is a mortal sin.]]

*** Right, but it's seems like it's just him, Maidman, Syndablokk and maybe now Sistah Spooky that care about Emp, the rest seem apathetic towards her. Hell, when Willy Pete murdered a bunch of heroes, i remember two heroines(The one with the huge helmet and the one that looks like a mummy), gloating about and even saying that they deserved to die. It just comes of as if the thugs shouldn't worry about it so much since the heroes are so heartless with each other. There was also the incident with Emp and Ocelotina, where it didn't seem like Sistah Spooky cared that Emp was almost molested by Pre-Ocelotina.
** Speaking of Captain Rivet, if he's a good person, why doesn't he try to stop the others from picking Empowered? Especially with Havoc, who has gotten worse in volume 7 and 8.

** He does what he can, but she really is TheLoad, and it really is unclear what happened at the Capey awards and with Willy Pete. And again, it's the principle of the thing. If you kill a cop, it doesn't matter how much of an asshole he was, unless he was actively working with criminals (and sometimes even then), the entire legal system comes down on your head like a ton of bricks. Because they want to send the message that people are ''not'' allowed to kill cops. Period.

* Considering how most heroes have such a low opinion of Emp, why are the Thugs and villains so scared of a possible reprisal if she's harm? Even volumes also imply that Havoc wouldn't care if something happened to Emp. No obviously i would hope nothing bad ever happened to Emp, but with the complete apathy Emp's peers have towards her, why are the villains so worried?

** It's the principle of the thing. If the villains are allowed to kill/rape Empowered, they might think they can do the same to someone ''useful''. Besides, Capitan Rivet laughs at Emp more than he should, but he's still a good person. He's not going to let her get killed if he can help it.
