** Just before they wake up and discover their powers have been swapped, Heather suggests she, MM, and Tiger order out from Grubhub since she's suddenly really hungry. We saw that Greta was able to gain 30ish kg in a day or so due to her hyper metabolic functions, perhaps Spinny just had a big order. As for Greta going in reverse, Spinnerette's first transformation made her buff ("girl abs") after a night of sleep. So that's where Greta got her new fit body.

[[folder:Spinny and Greta swapping powers and body types]]

* How did that work? We saw during Greta Gravity and Dr. Universe's origin that Greta gained her weight intentionally to fuel her gravity powers. The weight isn't part of her powers. Even if you figure that Greta's body can't hold the weight without her gravity powers, why would Heather instantly gain said weight, let alone how? And if we go with the "body and powers are a package deal" theory, why did Heather still have her extra arms?\\

** Further explained in Issue 25. CK allowed the mutation to happen, and gave her a 'template' of powers. But she doesn't have a continuing reaction to sustain it, like other CK heroes need. Which makes her mostly immune to power drain effects and such. However, her 'template' can be copied, allowing Sahira and other people to mimic her powers.

[[folder:ALS]]
* Given the recent hype for the raising of funds and awareness for ALS research, one can't help but wonder how the authors plans for the comic would be affected if a cure actually was found before Mecha Maid succumbs her condition. It's a rather pleasant thought that we might get such a benevolent example of SerendipityWritesThePlot.

** Hell, just ask UltimateMarvel for the answers. Giant Man couldn't use his powers while he was with the Defenders because it would be considered as giving away a trade secret (the Giant Man serum).

*** Heather did just take a shot in the dark. She's been shown to be reckless and kinda not all that bright or forward thinking (instantly trusting evil Spinnerette anyone?). She saw the girl with ALS and purple hair and went "That must be Mecha Maid!" If there was another person looking similar to MM, she likely would have done the same.

** Or an even simpler answer? Very high fuel efficiency standards, mandated by law, requires cars be built out of much lighter, and therefore less durable, materials, like fiberglass vs steel.

to:

** A.) They escaped from Hell in the first place, so immediately, not nice people. B.) The composite soul was a clear and present danger to all of Columbus, Ohio, and if they did not help Minerva, while having the power to do so, the heroes would all have been guilty of being accomplices to the wanton death and destruction the composite soul was causing, by inaction. Even if the heroes were morally opposed, Minerva's cause of action was their best option.

** Umm.. That's not the way ''radiation'' works. However, since the reactor in her chest powers her abilities, it stands to reason, that unless her children get a reactor in them too, they won't have any. Doesn't automatically mean her breast milk is exactly healthy though.

** It's much easier to lift cinderblocks and throw them by adjusting their weight due to gravity than it is to use gravity to grab people's limbs and crush them.

to:

** If Superman didn't control himself, he would shatter a fishbowl just by holding it. She likely was doing her best not to use her strength to kill the guy, plus she had only intended to scare him instead of bringing his wrath upon herself, leaving her unprepared to handle him.




to:

** One tired stereotype that I would have expected her to use was the biting the nails one. These stereotypes are odd.




to:

** Dr. Lambha wouldn't care about her sudden weight gain, so he wouldn't notice. Darien didn't pay any attention to her until AFTER her apparent weight gain, so he likely assumed she was always that weight.




to:

** The hair, facial features, and the voice probably clued Heather in. Most likely the hair and voice, given that Spinnerette had begun spending time with Tiger and Mecha Maid on a regular basis.




to:

** Heather is totally bisexual. It makes sense, due to her attraction to both Darien AND Marilyn. As she mentioned, she couldn't really pursue a relationship, due to her lack of time to spend on one. She is also shy, meaning she wouldn't usually talk to a person she does have a crush on. For instance, Darien. She didn't have much of a chance to truly get to know Darien. Meanwhile, she was around Marilyn on a regular basis, and they developed a close relationship. She had never had much time to truly think about her sexuality, so she had always assumed she was straight.




to:

** They probably were unaffected. The reactor was inside of her, so the energy wouldn't just stay in the boobs. Most likely, if her egg cells were mutated by the reactor, her children ALREADY had some of her abilities. Mutations only are passed down to the children if the egg cells were mutated. Either way, if the energy from the reactor didn't kill them in the womb, then breast feeding wouldn't harm them.




to:

** Interesting fact: Heather was in band at one point, due to her mention of being at band camp. Meaning that Heather plays a musical instrument.




to:

** Her mutations were a RESULT of CK. The second shot is what caused her to go critical.




to:

** In a world with magic, six-armed girls, cerberuses from Hell, werewolves, and Ayn Rand novels causing someone to become an evil villian, you are questioning how they sent a probe to Venus, where they have actually sent probes before?




to:

** It was likely that the reason the container was open was because Dr. Lambha had requested Heather to feed them, and Heather had used the opportunity to text Sahira. As for "highly mutagenic," it is possible that these spiders were tested on and still had radiation on them, and Lambha wanted to see if anything happened to them over time. A bite can become infected after a while, and Lambha knew that the radiation might lead to it being bad.




to:

** Also, Dr. Lambha doesn't like Heather, and appears to find her pretty much incompetent. He would not believe that the clumsy grad student was a six-armed superhero. Also, Heather wears a wig as Spinnerette, meaning he would dismiss it simply because Heather looks nothing like her, and did not seem capable in any way, shape, or form.
