Webcomic / M9 Girls!

Go To
Superheroines with a sense of fashion...
M9 Girls! is a webcomic by Rulopótamo, first drawn by Kanela and later by Shadow (formerly known as Séreméla).

The M9 Girls are Any, Pato, Claudia, and Karla. They are a team of college researchers who gain the ability to tap into the primordial power of the universe and become endowed with superpowers as a result. The current story arc is the origin story, with the girls discovering the implications of their transformation. Although the girls dress up in attires closer to Magical Girl looks, their story is more of a Super Hero one with Mad Science overtones. The comic has been updating since 2011, and was completed in April of 2019.


This comic provides examples of:

  • Afraid of Needles: Pato apparently hates getting shots.
  • Age-Gap Romance: Any develops a crush with the Professor very early in the history. The feelings are mutual.
  • Animesque: Both the story and the art are Manga-influenced.
  • Art Evolution: Shadow is the artist as of Chapter 5.
  • Art Shift: Artist Kanela was fond of using chibi versions of the characters for reaction panels, in contrast to her more realistic manga style. Artist Shadow goes back and fort between a semi-realistic approach and a classic manga look.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Any's costume reveals her slender midriff.
  • Body Horror: The cyborgs look like a cross between robots, zombies, and torture victims.
  • Blatant Lies: Vero's excuses when she's caught sneaking into the lab are...less than convincing.
  • Broken Pedestal: All of the girls are pretty disillusioned by the Prof at this point, though the revelation hits a particular emotional nerve for Any, considering her obvious admiration of him early on.

  • Cheeky Mouth: Frequently.
  • Color Character: All the M9 Girls hero names.
  • Crossover: Several, particularly members of Webcomic Underdogs. To date the girls have met The Demon Archives, Princess Chroma, Ruby Nation, Cesium and Groovy, Kinda among others.
    • The Groovy, Kinda crossover has lasting effects in both comics, with one supporting character of Groovy moving permanently to the M9 universe. The authors claim this has not been attempted before.
  • Crucified Hero Shot: When Any is given her second dose of radiation, the platform she’s on strongly resembles a cross.
  • Curse Cut Short: Pato, when she realizes she possesses absorbent powers.
  • Dramatic Irony: Vero is laughed at for thinking the lab is involved in some kind of conspiracy. And it is.
  • Elemental Powers: The abilities that the M9 Girls possess seem to be connected to the universe's own inherent power.
  • Everything's Better with Sparkles: Karla can produce colorful sparkles.

  • Form-Fitting Wardrobe: Blame Karla. can't deny they look the part.
