Redd is a webcomic featuring the eponymous character Vicky Redd, an armless researcher who sports a set of floating waldos and works on technology involving translating neural signals to instruments. Outside of her research position, she also fights sea monsters (apparently a very common occurrence) and seems to be being groomed by a company named IBISEC to take down the extant superhero and supervillain community. The comic is currently on hiatus but otherwise updates every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and can be found here.Be warned, while Redd is relatively tame, the site is very NSFW.Spoilers are unmarked.You Have Been Warned.
Cape Busters: IBISEC aims to put superheroes as a whole out of business by cornering the world-saving market. They act out this trope to its full extent with supervillians, killing them off one by one as soon as they can get an individual respective contract with the government.
Mega Corp.: IBISEC, who created Redd's handmaidens, among other things used by both the general public and the military. However, the corporation seems to hold the idea of traditional heroes and villains in contempt, and are hoping they can use their tech—along with Redd—to shake up the status quo.
Mid-Season Upgrade: Redd’s hands, and often offscreen. Many, many times. Ultimately, it's justified by IBISEC being a technological powerhouse, which they use to give Redd the appropriate armor for any given mission.
Stripperific: Some of the outfits Redd wears when on-duty (this extends to the other test subjects of both genders as well). Most of them cover her whole body, but are skin-tight. She has her limits though; when she gains a darkness-enhanced magic boost from a wizard, it gave her a much more skin-baring Chainmail Bikini as a result. She immediately covers herself and demands some sort of actual cover before she fights (to which the wizard apologetically hands her a cloak in response).
The Un-Smile: A lot of commentators interpreted the receptionist's smile here as this.
Seth Brodbeck: That is the kind of smile that says "I may not fully comprehend this smiling thing, but I comprehend the disciplinary action that will be taken if I don't smile."
Early in the comic, a woman from upper management shows up to ask Redd if she would like to participate in IBISEC's hero program. She's sports an odd smile the whole time and one of Redd's co-workers refers to the woman as a "scary lady".
What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Redd has qualms about killing a supervillain on the basis that he's human, unlike the sea monsters she had been facing earlier, but she ultimately decides to do it (see Beware the Silly Ones above for more detail). Later, she kills a giant creature that was just standing in the ocean near a port with no hesitation, thinking it was another monster. It's later revealed that it was actually a giant man in armor (though Redd missed this tidbit when it was revealed due to being asleep at the time).
