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.

[[WMG: Willy Pete was created by the Infernal Services Provider]]
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.

Because the beings that gave them their powers were trying to keep them out of hell, because while being superdead is not a fun ride the hell dimension shown in the title is probably worse.

to:

* As of Vol.9, A) The superdead are gradually decomposing. B) They can't be physically aroused. C) Fleshmaster mentions that the suit is part of Emp's DNA now. D) Her last thoughts when suffocating were "Please don't let me die like this". I assume, that suit mutated and|or reanimated her, probably past the point of clinical death, but this is possible even without magic, and if that was THE potential superdead deal, it was done after she died, and so shouldn't count. Maybe if Emp dies a second time - which the suit doesn't allow. Even when presumably losing powers, she can survive falling several floors on concrete, hard vacuum, contact with lava...
