* So [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse what happened to those other expiriments]] that the Flock freed in the first book? There are a few issues with it. First, why didn't the Flock go with them? These are other people just like them, and they aren't even going to interact or try to make plans? After they leave, the Flock never even THINKS about the expiriments they rescued again, not even so much as a "Hey, where do you think those expiriments we rescued in New York went?". Second, why didn't they make sure they got to safety first? A lot of them were obviously very weak and sick, it just makes me assume that nearly all of them were recaptured almost immediately after they escaped. Three... What was the point? It never led up to anything, and after all these books have gone by I kind of doubt it will.

** According to the movie, Jeb snuck them out one by one in the middle of the night. Since later books claim that the School intentionally let them escape, security intentionally let Jeb get away with it.

*Anyone else kind of bothered that Max and Fang consider themselves siblings until they kiss...?

*How do they keep bringing Ari back to life? That happens plenty of times and this suggests that in general, bringing people back to life can be done, so how did they do it? In "maximum ride forever" Dylan uses the technology in his own body to bring Fang back to life but it kills him and the technology in him is brand new stuff. What were they using before then and did it require killing someone else, every time or did Dylan just really not want to live anymore? That's a tough one.






* In later books Maximum develops some really weird voice in her head that causes incredibly painful headaches and also interferes with technology around. While there is speculation as to who the voice is and why it's been put in her head, they never really explain it well. In earlier books they say it might be Jeb. In the final book they suggest it was angel the whole time and because she can see the future and read minds this is not that impossible except that the voice was not recognized by Max as angel's voice which it normally is right? And the technological stuff is left totally unexplained.

* I got a load of questions about total. How in the heck did he literally grow wings because that is so strange, and their explanation isn't too agreeable. J.P. kind of just shrugged his shoulders and said "Well, mutations or... something."
* Also who owned akila and willingly gave her up to be total's bride? Wouldn't you be a little weirded out if that was your dog being given away?

* Also who owned akila *Also this happens a lot in the series and willingly gave her up the explanations are usually about the same. That they either were meant to be total's bride? Wouldn't you be a little weirded out if have these powers from the start and the genes just became activated, or that they just keep mutating. Those must be some seriously volatile genetics that can just pick up powers effortlessly.
*In early books there's that scene where Nudge licks her finger and then runs it over the screen of a computer and magically knows the password. Though any time afterwards, this power is never used again, and there are plenty of times it

*In the book "MAX" maximum and the others are on a submarine and by the end of it they have gills and can breathe underwater, also maximum is immune to deep sea pressure. These are two very convenient and unexplained mutations.

* I'm aware that living on there own for years and years has given the flock quite a few survival skills that most people don't possess, but Iggy is getting to be seriously impossible. Over the course of the books it's become harder and harder for me, a totally blind person, to suspend my disbelief in regards to Iggy's abilities. He walks alone without a cane or a guide dog, and often without verbile direction, effortlessly threading his way around things in his path. He can fly in pitch battle against Erasers or what have you, when everyone else is too busy to help him, and still has never, as I recall, been seriously injured by someone he may not have heard coming in the commotion. Occasionally people will give him directions on where to go in battle, but that only sparingly. Also, he comments in "Max" that his echolocation works better under water, which makes no sense: If he echolocates as some blind people do, he uses his ears to tell where the sound is blocked by a wall or other obsticle; this would be completely screwed over when he's under water. If he echolocates like dolphins do, it would be different, but it's never stated one way or the other.

*** Also, if he were 98% dog and 1% human it'd make him ''less'' human than most dogs, not more. Usually, over 80% of the DNA of dogs is identical to human DNA.

* In the first book Fang tries to gross-out Nudge by pretending that kabob meat is rat. When Max hears about it she seems amused and exasperated "I met Fang’s eyes over her shoulder and mouthed Rats? silently. A flicker of a grin crossed his lips and then was gone." Later in the series she talks about eating rats like it is something that the flock does on a regular basis, and you shouldn't judge or be grossed-out. There was also a scene in the first book where Fang pretended that hot dogs were racoon meat, which also horrified Nudge.

* What the fuck happened to the clones of Angel and Nudge that were mentioned to be ambling about the Itex compound? One second they're in sight, the next they were forgotten? They certainly didn't make a Maya-level reappearance.
