Coyoty May 8, 2018 at 1:10 am 2 months ago “Now for your nickname. Bikkie the…?” “BLOOOOODD!” “We need something better than BLOOOOODD, sucker.” “Blood Sucker works.” “Okay. Whatever.” Elaborate May 8, 2018 at 5:43 am 2 months ago Hm. I mean, on the one hand Bikkie will win. This is indisputable. But I could imagine several models of alien who would have a SEVERE ADVANTAGE against Earth Kangaroos, though I guess id depends on the actual rules. Does Bikkie have the boxing finesse to win on *points* against, say, a cyborg-augmented T-rex? A T-rex couldn’t hit Bikkie with its fists, but there is little actual damage Bikkie could do, even skipping the “below-the-belt” rule. Can he up the violence angle enough to win on “opponent death” against a sentient swarm of bees with tiny boxing gloves?

The rule was no claws, only. 3oranges May 8, 2018 at 4:07 pm 2 months ago Some bees might not want gloves, but since honeybees die when they sting, it might be better to use them. Mic May 8, 2018 at 9:57 pm 2 months ago Space bees might not die and have twelve stingrrs. andreas May 8, 2018 at 5:58 am 2 months ago “Anesu, this is all part of our plan to save the universe, right?” “Wha’? Ah. Good point. I mean – of course. Obviously. Integral part. Why would you even ask?” Efogoto May 8, 2018 at 10:50 pm 2 months ago Came back too early for the update, but read again happily and love Anesu’s expression in that last panel as she nearly swoons with delight.
