** London lies. He knows nothing about werewolves. (More realistically? He likely doesn't like too much cloth on fur)

[[folder:London and shirts]]
* So, while out on the town with the others, London claims that werewolves can't wear shirts. Why not? Sure, London's more muscular than the average human, but he doesn't seem unrealistically so. Real people have probably gotten at least that big, and they can still find shirts no problem. Plus literally two issues ago he was ''wearing a tank top.'' So what gives?

to:

** We also see in ''Webcomic/{{Krakow}}'', which takes place in the same universe as ''Spinnerette'' and is also by Krazy Krow, that Hell actually has an appeal process for souls that feel they've been unjustly assigned to Hell.



to:

** For a long time cars were built like tanks, to be incredibly durable under the assumption that that would protect their passengers in the event of a crash. However, the laws of conservation of momentum and elastic collisions (backed up by countless crash studies) means that is actually the opposite of the truth. Nowadays, cars are built to collapse/crumple upon impact, save only a cage around the drivers/passengers, so that they absorb as much kinetic energy as possible without crushing their occupants.



to:

** An easier answer: Marilyn was working on powered armor and had specs visibly pulled up on her displays. How many people in the world, much less one city, have ALS, similar facial features/voice, ''and'' work on powered armor? It's a pretty reasonable bet on Heather's part that the answer is "just one".


* I'm confused - how in the world did Heather [[http://krakowstudios.com/spinnerette/2010/11/05/11052010/ figure out]] what Mecha Maid's civilian identity was with [[http://krakowstudios.com/spinnerette/2010/10/15/10152010/ just one run in]]?

to:

** Speaking for myself, Darien always seemed a little... ''girly''. It's possible Heather was only attracted to guys who were feminine. The real question is why she's so fascinated by Gretta and Super [=MILF=]'s chest sizes, when she told Sahira she didn't like curvy girls.



to:

** 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.

Added DiffLines:

[[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?\\

The MST3KMantra only goes so far!

Added DiffLines:

** 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).

Added DiffLines:

*** 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.



to:

** 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.
