The Secret Return of Alex Mack

Review of chapter "Return" from fanreaderonetwo
Review:
I was rereading chapter 157, and this caught my eye...

""Alex was pretty sure Riley stole that line from Jack. She added, “And Danielle Atron, who has powers like mine, and Maggie Walsh, who’s maybe the smartest person on the planet when it comes to biology and genetics.”

Riley looked her way. “Walsh may be the smartest person on the planet period. Look at what she’s designed in just the last few years. And Marshall says she’s done more to advance genetics and the related fields than any other four people. If she wasn’t busy being a supervillain, she’d be walking around with two or three Nobel Prizes right now.”"


This came to mind.

Image of Margaret Walsh, beautifully made up, in a gorgeous gown, great jewelry and a big smile addressing the Noble committee in Stockholm in fluent Swedish via video link. She is thanking them for the multiple Nobel Prizes that they have just awarded her.

The image pulls back and shows the heavy chain extending from the wall to beneath her long skirt to the shackles on her ankles. One of the necklaces _locked_ around her neck is an remote controlled explosive collar. There is a squad of heavily armed troops with rifles pointed at her, all of them experienced combat troops who have lost friends or loved ones to one of her schemes. She knows that the troops have orders that if there is any sign of an escape or rescue attempt that she will be shot _and_ the collar detonated.

She is scheduled to be executed the next day in the chamber next door.

Just a thought...... grin

Well, something might happen in Paris. Not that I haven't planted enough hints...

"All this makes me feels like I should be writing more."

YES! Please do! Just reading the words "The Secret Reunion of Alex Mack" got me so excited! I would love to see Willow help Hermione power through the portals so everyone can bring all their friends (and all the doubles!) to meet each other. All the Jacks must meet! Not sure if any one world could handle all the Willows, Hermiones and Sams all in one place tho. The ones that aren't evil that is, guess that will be a little awkward to hear about the various evil versions. Eh, everyone has a dark side.

Anyways, please please please make this happen! I just want to read all the conversations between all the groups, especially showing how impressed everyone will be with what Alex has accomplished (can you get a stroke from blushing too much?)

Hermione and Willow pop into existence just outside a Terawatt superbattle:
"Where's Alex?"
"Don't know, the spell should have dropped us close by."
"Well that kinda looks like Alex's uniform but that's not her."
Alex flies over:
"Hey guys! I can't believe you're here!"
"Do we know you?"
She does a quick change
(In Stereo) "Oh my gosh!"

and at some point Alex catches Willow prime checking her out.
Comments from author:
:D :D :D

"Alex! You... grew! With the..." (makes standard guy 'she has huge bewbs' gesture)
"Falsies."
(Willow turns beet red)
Hermione interrupts, "Hey, is the Willow in your universe evil and dead, like in mine?"
(Willow turns purple with embarrassment)

Review deleted.
EDITED IN: It was a duplicate, and I could not find a way to delete it. (It's probably there and I was being dumb, but it's three o'clock in the morning where I am and I am very unwillingly awake.)
Comments from author:
Umm, do you mean the review you posted that I just replied to, or was this an entirely different one? Or maybe it was a duplicate? The comment system is not the most advanced system I've ever seen.

Review of chapter "Summer Jobs" from fpb
Review:
I would like to thank Batzuliger for addressing a major issue of our time - the dire shortage of Terawatt fan art. Seriously, he (or she?) has put me in the mood to do a few more myself. I'll correct the shoulders, but may I keep the butterfly mask, Diane?
OH, and as for heroes and heroines - I've been heard on this issue before. It's not just that the heroes are fewer than the heroines, it's that they are much more rarely seen, and that so far, except for the Toxic Avenger - who hardly counts as a hero - and for Victor Cready - ditto - they have really lame powers. And it doesn't work. If you are trying to prove that women can be more powerful than men if they are given random magical powers that don't exist in the real world, well, you proved that. It's nice to see Ultraman do proper superhero stuff - run so fast he can hardly be followed, lift cars with one hand, take a Carrie hit to the chest and come right back.
Comments from author:
And lift up an entire cylindrical tank full of fuel and just *run* with it. Ultraman is like Alex, in that he is ridiculously overpowered for his setting, and (almost) never really gets a chance in his tv show to demonstrate just what a real superhero with those powers could do. On the other hand, Charlie McGee and Carrie White show that it is not always a good thing to find out just how powerful a protagonist really is.

EDIT: Yes, keep that butterfly mask! It looks really cool.

Kewl. I have this mental image of Hanna happily holding a gatling gun off a helicopter, which would be maybe larger than she is. :D

Yeah i cant see anything either
Comments from author:
It's gone. :( It was a Terawatt complete with lightning discharges all around her. It was really great. The only nitpicks I had manged to dream up were the mask should have been a bit bigger and black, and the hair should have been a little fuller. But it was awesome.

Review:
Diane: Yep. Other than Klar. And Batman. And Toxie. And Riley and Sergeant Carlson.

Well, Toxie only showed up once, Batman's too busy brooding to leave NYC, and Klar is mostly restricted to recon and whacking people over the head. Riley and Carlson are Orphans.

It was starting to feeling like the Terawatt and Action Girl show.
Comments from author:
Well, I want it to be The Terawatt Show with some guest stars, so... yeah.

And the Author Wrote:

"And the IRS bit is a classic, going back at least as far as Al Capone."

Hey, it's even a trope. "Murder, Arson and Jaywalking."

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ArsonMurderAndJaywalking

Sometimes it's the ONLY way to nail them. "Teflon" criminals may be shielded against all the powerful charges, but forget to protect themselves against something small. I remember one incident when an untouchable gang type got drunk, urinated against the nearest wall, and then was successfully prosecuted for indecent exposure. He lost ALL his street cred for that, and was never again taken seriously by either side of the law.

Also, I *think* I've successfully shared chapter one of my fic on my Google Drive, Diane. Try this link, see if it works (warning, raw chapter, needs editing desperately):

Comments from author:
This is a nice extension of the material you already showed me. Go for it!

And set it during this summer, while Alex is in Paris visiting Aunt Ashley (and Shar is off at summer camp).

Review of chapter "Summer Jobs" from mooncowthree
Review:
"I suggested that a while back, along with a insulin pump loaded with glucose or something."

Yeah its a pretty obvious solution especially since it dramatically increases her carrying capacity for other things too. They could even make it look pretty stylish with maybe a hard shell that is form fitted to her back, I'm sure Jack could make it work.

"There WAS, in fact, a story"

eh, yeah but that looks more like a fight the same bad guy in a different setting kind of deal, I want to see Tony put his genius to use when he is *truly* "in a cave with a box of scraps"

And hey, I thought Alex was going to go Babysit the 2 year old telekinetic? Or was that brought up so she could think about having kids that didn't express their powers till they were teenagers - has she thought of that before or did the 2 year old make her consider?
Comments from author:
Oh no, Alex isn't going to Tennessee to babysit a two-year-old. Alex has enough stuff going on having to babysit Shar.

Tony Stark: "Not a cave again! MacGyver at least gets a broom closet loaded with stuff, and the A-Team gets a whole warehouse of hardware! Pepper? Do you have Stan Lee on your speed-dial? I want to lodge a protest!"

Review of chapter "Summer Jobs" from SirLee
Review:
There WAS, in fact, a story -- back in the classic Michelinie/Layton stint in the Eighties -- where Iron Man AND Dr. Doom were sent back in time to Camelot...
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doomquest

On an unrelated topic... new game: Spot the Jackson. How many Jacksons are there in the story? We have General Steve Jackson, who may or may not design RPGs on his free time; we assume that there is some archaeologist named Daniel Jackson somewhere, but with a distinctive lack of Goa'uld and vampires in this universe, probably didn't manage to uncover something that ruins his career, and is therefore quietly working on his tenure; there's Jackson the basketball teammate of Ray's; and there's Charlie, who is Jack's son. How many 20-dollar bill mentions are there in the story?
Comments from author:
I hate to break it to you, but "It's All About The Benjamins" not the Jacksons. :D

Or if you like Weird Al, "It's All About the Pentiums." Much better lyrics.
