Added DiffLines:

** As seen in Ward, the remaining Earth Bet citizens are so traumatized about Khepri that they are scared to even ''say her name'' for fear of somehow getting her attention. It stands to say that they don't feel so positively at all about her, despite saving the world and all.

Added DiffLines:

** It is kinda unlikely, that Amy has a bud of Marquis in the first place. One strong evidence, that points to that, is how Glaistig Uaine treats capes according to their shards. She recognizes Taylor as the Administrator and Amy as an equal, but doesn`t act as if Marquis was anything special, which she should have, if his shard were Amy`s "progenitor"/same shard with a different expression of power.


* The ending shows Taylor being depowered and living on basically Muggle Earth. She has a prosthetic hand. Assuming it really happens and is not a hallucination while Taylor still being in coma, why couldn't they have healed her before dumping her, she would have deserved at least that, after saving humanity from extinction?

** Coil probably coerced it that way. Or left it settle in the minds of very few unimportant people to figure it out on their own, at the very least.

Added DiffLines:

** Simply put, people can lie, and often heroes specific avoid names that would give away anything other then the basic theme of there powers, ei even if you got the reference "Grue" would at best clue you into the fact his powers are darkness based, which is pretty obvious as soon as he starts using them, "darkness powers" is extremely vague, and doesent actually clue you in to what it does or potential weaknesses and ultimately it is untrue, as his powers dont actually involve darkness or shadows at all beyond being black


Added DiffLines:

** The key difference between wolves and dogs is wolves tend to be more social, humans are an extremely social species, so if you mixed a wolf mind and a human mind you would get something close to a dogs mind


Added DiffLines:

** Because while nice dealing with drunken idiots ultimately no amount of Tae Kwon Do(or at least no amount a highschooler is going to be able to master) is going to beat a knife or a gun, pepper spray is likely a safer bet since against a normal human its more or less guaranteeing they will be disabled if you get it in there face

Added DiffLines:

** It's established that the budding can happen many years before the triggering. If Marquis' shard was aware of the danger of the birdcage, it may have chosen to bud when he was caught, if not earlier.

Added DiffLines:

** I don't remember when that was established. Perhaps just 5 years with her father was enough, and she triggered soon after.

[[folder: Amy's powers]]
* It is, I believe, established that powers in the Worm-verse are not genetic. Instead, the reason children of parahumans tend to manifest powers is because they are receiving "buds" off of their parent's Shards. Given that, how did Amy manifest biokinetic powers when she hadn't been around her father since she was five? Shouldn't she have triggered with something related to the Dallon's (or perhaps the Pelham's) powers?

[[folder: Coil's plan]]
* So Coil faked his own death along with Über, L33t and Circus. But those three showed up again in costume. Wouldn't people catch up quickly that there were shenanigans?


** A common belief is that “education = encouragement.” In other words, that teaching someone how to do something can be construed as encouraging them to actively use that skill. Its a common argument against self-defense training: “Teach someone to fight and they’ll go looking for a fight.” And while it sounds silly, it does have some basis, as someone who is simply taught a skill without also being educated in how and when to use it can misuse that skill, so a poor class can be worse than no classes. This could be a justification for why Taylor’s dad didn’t sign her up for such a class. Its certainly been used in real life.
