* Seems to be backed up by an exchange between Capitan Rivet and Major Havoc in Vol. 7.
--> Capitan Rivet: "Well, Mindf████ ''was'' kept out of the loop about the kludge minds, for ''obvious reasons''..."
--> Major Havoc: "Wouldn't she have, y'know, ''recognized'' his work, somehow?"

Seriously, she gets [[BoundAndGagged tied]] [[FetishFuel up]] too often for it to be mere coincidence. And don't even get me started on how she actually gives people ''pointers'' on '''[[BoldInflation how to tie her up]]'''. She's just keeping it a secret because she isn't sure if it'll turn out to be a ConvenientlyCommonKink.

During his little ExpositionDump in volume 8, the Infernal Services Provider admitted to having manipulated events to cause Mindf**k's death in order to [[spoiler:lure Spooky into Hell so he could escape]]. How could he have done that? The most obvious suggestion is that he created Willy Pete, out of either one person, or ''several.'' Possibly Willy Pete was molded together from the souls of several dead arsonists, who actually ''loved'' burning in Hell, but still relished the opportunity to go back to Earth and burn some more? I dunno, but I still lay the credit for his existence at the demon's feet.

[[WMG: Willy Pete's level of activity is directly tied to Thugboy's psyche.]]
While not necessarily created by Thugboy (see other Guesses for some good possibilities), after his creation, the kludge mind of Willy Pete zeroed in on the Capekillers as an emotional wellspring; as their activity increased, so did Willy Pete's - leading to a Freudian meeting and near-total obliteration of the Capekillers.

After the death of his friends, Thugboy is shown to have become nihilistic. ('Whatever,' whether pointing a gun or being threatened with one.) Simultaneously, Willy Pete goes into stasis; the reason why he's not on the threat list of the Supes isn't because he wasn't powerful, but because his crimes occurred years ago during a chaotic period, after which he disappeared and didn't warrant investigation. (Inactive, not 'lightly active' - even occasional reports of 'cannibalistic skull-fucking' would have made some kind of waves, since Willy doesn't seem to have any tendencies towards cleaning up after his attacks. Or subtlety.)

Then, Thugboy encounters Emp, starts caring about her - and Willy Pete is suddenly back in action.

* Extra speculation: The connection between Willy and Thugboy is facilitated by something that Thugboy stashed during his Witless Minion days; something small but mystical, which was disturbed when Thugboy began selling off the items to pay rent.
** It would be somewhat hilarious if it turned out that part of Thugboy's 'Spartan' outfit was actually some kind of occult transmitter.

In the mausoleum story, there's one superhero looking like a hamster with a medieval helmet. That would make him... well, I said it already. A possible ShoutOut to ''DorkTower''?

While unwillingly, she intentionally caused the death of about '''10''' superheroes (11 if you count the indirect death of Mindf**k) and destroyed a billion dollar space station, almost bringing the Superhomeys to their knees. Even if Willy Pete did all the "work," she instigated the event. Combined with her GenreSavvy-ness which could just as easily turn into DangerouslyGenreSavvy-ness (including her knowledge of the methods of Superhero restraint and other insider knowledge of being a Superhomey), she could probably give Deathmonger a run for his money if she wasn't such a sweetheart with self-esteem issues. But, like the above posts say: [[ComicBook/TheKillingJoke one bad day...]]

** WordOfGod several times in the Web Comic version is the Emp is an UnreliableNarrator particularly with regard to how the supersuit functions.

* Plausible. Several have come up to Adam and admitted they came for the BDSM, but then couldn't get off to it anymore as they cared for Emp too much.

*** Sorta confirmed, sorta jossed. The Infernal Services Provider [[spoiler:was lying about almost everything, since everything from giving Spooky "too much power" to apparently manipulating Mindf**k's death was all one big plan to get himself out of hell. It was all a trap for Spooky. But tragically, it turns out that Mindf**k IS in hell- and Spooky and Emp don't see her while they're on their way out, so she'll probably stay there. '''Forever.''']]



Teresa's looks and powers have clearly survived the destruction of her Infernal Service Provider, and it is vanishingly unlikely that she will refuse to use the latter to protect others; but the outfit is going in the incinerator and she will make all efforts to train herself out of the mannerisms associated with her [=SuperHomie=] career.
