Recap: My Superhero Academy S03 E03 To Hell With It

Harmony: "Alternate universes! Didn't like the last one, it wasn't ours, so we made a portal but this one isn't ours either!"

Mikael: ...aaand I still can't teleport or turn back. So should we fire up the wormhole again until we get home? Or are there people here who could actually help us? Maybe another version of Mahvash?
Interceptor: [looking at Mikael as though he'd sasked a stupid question] I'm going to wager a guess and say '[Mahvash]' only exists in your reality. Because as far as I can tell, she doesn't exist in this one. Or at the very least has never attended this school." [looking at the others] The rest of you though have. Or at least used to.

Sam: Just, please, don't do anything stupid, guys.

Interceptor: ...our Vickie was never cured. Tried to find a cure for ages, but she never found anything that sticked. Didn't stop her from becoming the most famous hero on the planet short of the Saint. Hell, being a wolf [probably] made her more famous than she would've been. Helped give her some points in diversity....But again, that doesn't mean any of that's gonna happen to you. You might get cured, you might not. You might get famous, you might not. But however your future turns out, it's yours to make.

Lucy: You seem to have a very primitive, animalistic viewpoint of Hei and I's relationship. So let me tell you how it is right now. Say, for example, you took him away from me, for whatever reason you may have. Now, in this case, I won't have lost a playmate, a sex toy, or any other tool of fleshly pleasure. I'd have lost my best friend, my smile, my soulmate, my everything. So tell me this... if you, dear Matten, took away my one link to my happiness, my stability, and my morals, what's to truly stop me from showing you exactly how The Empress broke and brutalized you?
Mahvash: Oh sweet Lucille...You and everyone forget themselves these days. Do I smile too much? 'Empress' you say, as if that means something besides having to hold my coat the whole time, and you standing there all hopped up on ignorant bravado in my presence...

Mikael:Don't get too upset at her, Lucy. Mahvash is... It'll take her awhile before she really understands love the way a human can. A long while. Don't hold your breath. [To Mahvash] As for you - just focus on getting us back, okay? You can complain about Lucy and Hei's relationship when we get home.

Lord Clankybottoms: WHADDYA WANT?! LORD CLANKYBOTTOMS DOESN'T WANT TO BE DISTRUBED! GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE BEFORE I DROP THIS THING DOWN YOUR SKIRT! OR BETTER YET, GIVE YOU AN F ON YOUR HOMEWORK! REINBACH AIN'T RUNNING THINGS NO MORE, CASE YOU FORGOT

Interceptor: This is Reinbach's instructions. You follow these and there's a %99.9 chance you'll get home. He also said there's a 0.1 chance you'll end up in the Abyss. Specifically your Abyss.

Mahvash: And though you may tread through the fiery, dreary valley of Gehenna fear not...For you have divine protection in the manifest glory of the moon, and she herself will lead you through the flames and the brimstone. From what I read the Dutch are mostly irreligious, but that had to strike a chord, yes?

Sam: You better be right...Because if we end up in the Abyss, I give it ten minutes tops for me to end up a delirious dead weight

First Post: 27 July 2018

Short Synopsis: Class One ends up in the 'good' place. Not heaven, they're not dead yet, but a version of their universe where everything seems to have gone right.
TROPES
  • Breather Episode: The episode starts with Class One in a 'good' mirror universe—where Mahvash conspicuously has no counterpart.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: While Lucy is adored by Class One and they more or less all gave her their support after she worried that the Empress may have made them wary of her; Mahvash, still considers Lucy as 'the kid who only recently stopped crying in the face of the enemy', and not particularly a menace. OTOH, Mahvash herself discovers that, while Class One will follow her lead back home, they're much more open about their opinions when they're somewhat sure that she won't kill them on a random whim.
  • It's a Wonderful Plot: For Mahvash, the version where everyone is so much happier without her there. The whole experience hits her buttons more than the Empress's world, her experiences in Saint Academy before, and Hell after, and she's very happy and very quick to leave.
  • Rule of Cute: Lucy and Lin encounter their alternate future children.
  • Safe Mode: Being Mahvash, she keeps working, but with command responsibility on top of her experience in the Sugar Bowl world, she veers close to this in the next world. (See: The Fettered).
  • Skewed Priorities: Mahvash isn't at all interested in perfect worlds or future children, but she will delay getting the class back to try and find future pictures of Remix under his helmet.
  • Sugar Bowl: The place that Class One visits in general, even accounting for Saint being dead.
  • Suspicious RP Generosity:''' Nurse Hello gives Lin and Sam quite the supply of medicine. Not that they might need it or anything...
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Lucy tries this on Mahvash. It doesn't take by itself. Doesn't help that Mahvash thinks Lucy's puffing up for status.
  • The Reveal: It was less of a secret to the readers than to the characters, but Saint's been dealing with heart trouble for a while and Leon used that to end him in the 'good world.' His heart trouble could more than likely end Saint in the main world as well.
