Webcomic / The Powerpuff Girls Reimagined

Go To
From back to front: Bubbles, Blossom, and Buttercup

"Sugar...spice...and everything nice...
Who would have thought that these were the ingredients chosen to bring my perfect little girls to life..."
Professor Utonium

An ongoing webcomic posted on DeviantArt by RossoWinch in 2014.

Professor Utonium's family - his wife Emma and three unborn triplets - was slaughtered two weeks ago. Refusing to accept their deaths, he and Mojo Jojo worked to make a potion that could restore someone to life - Chemical X. After finding a formula that could help create Chemical X, Mojo Jojo and the Professor create a contraption that can resurrect the triplets. Shortly after the contraption was started, the Professor saw a hallucination of Emma, causing a mental breakdown. He shoots Mojo Jojo in a panic, planning to shoot himself immediately afterwards, until the contraption explodes, creating the Powerpuff Girls.

A Dark Fic, the story shows the adventures of the Powerpuff Girls with other subplots concerning Mojo Jojo, the Professor, Princess Morbucks, and even Mystery Inc in a brief crossover. Although the first chapter is quite short, the second and third chapters are much longer.


The first chapter can be read here.

This webcomic provides examples of:

  • 20 Minutes into the Past: The webcomic is set in the summer of 1998, though the flashback to Mystery Inc. is set during December 1978.

  • Adaptational Villainy: Fuzzy Lumpkins, considering he murdered Emma and her unborn triplets. Compared to the original cartoon, Fuzzy also looks far more like a Slasher villain.
  • Alien Blood: Emma and Sedusa all have black blood.
  • Are You Sure You Want to Do That?: Wednesday warns Brikowski about provoking the girls.
    Brikowski: Let's take this guy straight to prison! His child just broke my arm!
    Wednesday: If you want to drag him to prison, I welcome you to do it. But I'm not helping you if the children come after you and break your other arm.
  • Ascended Extra: Jack Wednesday is considerably more involved in the webcomic than the original cartoon.
    • The same can be said for the Boogeyman.
  • Ate His Gun: Buttercup accidentally shoots herself this way. She survives unharmed, though.

    • Don't damage Buttercup's blanket.

  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Sedusa compels a police force trying to arrest her to beat a policewoman immune to her compulsion to death.
  • Not So Different: Sedusa tries to do this to Blossom, claiming Blossom will be just like her when she grows up.
  • Oh, Crap!: When Brikowski shoots the Professor in front of Blossom.
    Blossom: [Death Glare]

    Brikowski: Oh fuck...
    [Blossom breaks Brikowski's arm as he tries to shoot her]
    Blossom: YOU HURT MY DADDY!
  • One-Winged Angel: Sedusa after she is killed by Buttercup in Chapter 3 - Chemical X regrows her hair and gives her Black Eyes of Evil.
  • Power Nullifier: Antidote-X. Professor Utonium uses it to temporarily remove the girls' and Mojo Jojo's powers.

    • Sedusa appears as one briefly during Chapter 3.

  • Shooting Superman: Brikowski tried to immobilize Blossom with a taser. When that didn't work, he tried to shoot her. Cue Curb-Stomp Battle.
  • Super Strength: The girls, Emma, and her other personalities are so strong that they can effortlessly throw someone across a room and break limbs. Even a sneeze from Bubbles was enough to injure the Professor.
    • A single punch from Buttercup was enough to cause a Neck Snap.
  • Sympathetic Inspector Antagonist: Jack Wednesday. He is rightfully suspicious of Professor Utonium, and is trying to keep the dangers posed by Utonium's experimentation under control.
  • Tap on the Head: Buttercup was planning to use this to incapacitate Sedusa, but she punches her so hard Sedusa gets a Neck Snap instead.
  • Technicolor Eyes: The girls do have pupils, but they are a darker shade of their irises.

How well does it match the trope?
