I feel like I should mention that I’m off school this week for “Reading Week”. I am legitimately trying to get things done during this time away from school, but it isn’t going as fast as I’d like. I have four essays due between now and the end of the school year, and three things of any respectable size that I need to read. The week is now halfway over and I don’t feel like I’ve got as much done as I should have, so I’ll have to double down for the rest of the week. I’ll get back to you on how much closer I am to being done those things in a couple days.
Phone Guys for this week:
This week’s superhero is an astronaut, because those are almost the same thing. bookofpdr.com/2013/02/24/sup…
Dr. Amanda Freeman was an astronaut performing scientific experiments on the moon, but a key piece of equipment malfunctioned and sent a wave of reality-warping energy coursing through Amanda. When she recovered, she found that she was transformed into a being made of the same material as the moon’s surface. Amanda found that she could now reshape her regolith-body into all manner of different forms. Unfortunately, her “at-rest” form includes her space-suit, which she can not remove. She continues to use her powers to help the space program, but is always seeking some way to return herself to normal.
Regolith is a character I made up for the sketch. Basically, Regolith is a good guy, moon version of Marvel’s Sandman. I threw in the bit about being trapped in the space-suit to add a bit of a tragic drawback, like many of the classic superheroes have. She’s not likely to be the type of superhero who goes around foiling bank robberies, but she would be right at home foiling alien invasions and the like.
