\n*** The author could potentially cure it with the genetic infusion chamber. ALS slowly breaks down the connection in the nervous system. If the genetic infusion chamber gave Marilyn a HealingFactor she could regenerate her nervous system as it's broken down.

* Arrayed against this arguement is that the comic has a largely {{Animesque}} art style, how good guy Marilyn is also an anime fan and modeled her superhero alter-ego after ''{{Mahoromatic}}'', how that Heather has ''never'' been rational in this series, and is generally more...[[IdiotHero stupid]], and bases her own arguments on {{Pokemon}} and Manga/{{Naruto}}, which is in turn a common anti-anime argument to the point that anime fans consider ''them'' strawman analogies. More likely, it was just an ironic running gag for the chapter, especially considering the next chapter was more manga stylized than any of the earlier ones.

[[http://www.krakowstudios.com/spinnerette/2010/02/23/02232010/ Take a close look here]]. The only reason the whole thing happened is because her arms somehow ''vanished'' for one panel, and popped back again in the next. ''Someone'' instigated her "accident" on purpose.

Added DiffLines:

* Her arms "vanishing" is visual short-hand for her flailing around so quickly as to induce motion-blur, trying to regain her balance. Still a good guess though, as we truly do not know the limits of Alex's magic powers.

** If the cure to ALS is ever found, in universe, "Adastraea" will be denied getting it. Why? She killed the researcher who came up with it. [[spoiler: Dr. Singh]] What bigger rejection can there be than that. She'll get to enjoy her Als in her prison/hospital bed for the rest of her short, sorry life.

* [[http://krakowstudios.com/spinnerette/2011/12/26/12262011/ Somewhat confirmed]]. She claims to have become a superhero so that she could create the ideal world where the nerve amplifier she invented would be used as medicine, not as a weapon. She's entrusting Heather with the blueprints, implicitly to carry on that dream after she's gone. This won't happen; Heather or somebody will find a way to cure or at least arrest the progress of Marilyn's ALS. ''{{Spinnerette}}''is firmly on the Idealistic side of the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism, and it just won't stay that way if key characters are KilledOffForReal. (See other WMG for further commentary on this point.)

* It would require an advanced and very human AI. More likely is that Mecha Maid is like [[GhostInTheShell the Major]] (they share the same hair and eye color, and have a similar hair style) a [[{{Cyborg}} full-body cyborg]]. ''That'' implies that Marilyn has found a way (which we haven't yet witnessed) to transfer her consciousness into the cyborg Mecha Maid. If so, this may mean TearJerker handwringing over her impending death might be a bit premature. (It would also explain her noncommittal reply - when she makes her [[WhamEpisode revelation of her fatal disease to Heather]] - when Heather implores her not to die; Marilyn knows that she will in fact survive in some form, but for whatever reason is not yet ready to reveal that to Heather.)

They merely think that [[LawOfChromaticSuperiority 'Black Tiger']] [[RuleOfCool is just a cooler superhero name.]]
* Alternately, it slipped up that way a few times and ended up sticking; about half the people he corrects literally say along the lines of "Wait, I heard it really was 'Black Tiger', sorry!"
* Another theory is that he reminded everyone of ComicBook/BlackPanther but since he has more of a tiger theme with his costume and powers, and because Marvel is known to sue superheroes for copyright infringement, everyone just took to calling him Black Tiger.
* Perhaps the old man who gave Tiger his powers actually used "Black Tiger" as his superhero name, and everyone just assumes the new Tiger is using the same name (or thinks they are the same person).

* Jossed. She has been shown being taken out of her costume. That being said, the strength is due to nerve amplifiers, and not power armor. That would severely reduce the necessary size, since it won't need powerful motors. Far more likely is that Mecha Maid might figure out a way to do this, but hasn't succeeded in doing so, yet.
