Nosy neighbors

In our last chapter or "Thrusts of Justice", we had just been given a warm and very intimate hug by the dying Cosmic Guardian's alien cyber suit and were deciding what to do (as chronicled in the excellent Chooseomatic book "Thrusts of Justice", which you should totally go buy your own copy of since we're only scratching the surface of the hilarity enshrined in these pages). We opted to head out and do some research on the history of the suit rather than chasing after the super-villain Ox.

Just once, I'd have liked to see Peter Parker slap some webbing on Aunt May's yammering trap, haul her wrinkled butt to the top of the Brooklyn Bridge, and strongly advise her to stay out of his damn business already. Now's our chance! I say one or two atomo-missiles up this lady's gob and problem solved.

On the other hand, it might be nice to retain a secret identity for those times when we just want to hang out at Starbuck's, you know?

So after you vote, be sure to lay out your reasoning in the comments and try to sway your fellow adventurers!

    I don’t think we have enough control of the suit yet to trust it to not blow this old lady away if she starts to get in our face, so I say we do what we do best, RUN!!

  2. Skybandit says:

    Split. Let the old lady think she’s going senile and seeing things.

  3. Myro says:

    I don’t think the suit is going to let us calmly reason with her. Best to hightail it out of there.

  4. logosgal says:

    I say running is a good plan A.

  5. Worf says:

    RUN LIKE THE WIND!!! Hehehehe!

    And just for the record, “I checked with the landlord”, “You’re not allowed to have robot suits in the building”, had me laughing out loud.

    Me too!!!

    Though the thought of blowing that annoying nosey ol’ bitty is extraordinarily tempting… From that one line we know that she is our bane… she makes our existence in the apartments miserable and I personally would love to see her shatter like a glass doll

    If comics have taught us anything it’s that violence is always the answer 😉

  7. What if I don’t want to be Cosmic Guardian, the hero? If anytime to announce myself as the new supervillain in town with total disregard for life, now’s the chance!

    Truth be told, I’m more interested in getting the armor off! It melted the last Guardian and seems to have consumed his predecessors! Not cool.

  8. William Peterson says:

    You CAN’T blow the old biddy away! She is, undoubtedly, the only one on the whole planet who knows all about the Space Police, how to get in touch with them, where the Instruction Manual is, AND where you ARE allowed to live with a Robot Suit! I mean, you think that would be obvious… 😀

  9. Kelex says:

    I don’t think our burgeoning superhero career would be best served by blowing a little old lady (nosy though she may be) into a cloud of atoms. Let’s slip out the back, Jack.

  10. X-stacy says:

    I voted to stay and try to control the damage. Not because I think we can, but because I’m curious just what you say to convince somebody that you do not, in fact, have a robot suit…while you’re wearing a robot suit.

  11. spidercow2012 says:

    Wm.Peterson and X-stacy have swayed me. I want to see how that conversation goes, and Mrs. Pinkett (given the–um, creativity of this CYOA) could turn out to be an ally (maybe a former Liberty Patroller). Or good for a laugh. Or something.

  12. MaDPac says:

    I’m leaving! I still don’t have enough intel on the suit and don’t know the amount of damage it can cause. I’m sure the missiles will blow the door (and anything beyond it) up but… what if they blow anything behind it as well?! I’ll rather run out the back door that be blown through it.

  13. ProwlerKnight says:

    I say stay because in spite of her noisyness she seems a little too calm (well her standards of calm), after seeing you fly into the apartment in a robot suit, so i think somethings up with her and might possibly know how to control the suit.

  14. Hunter-Hunted says:

    Our search on the web proviede us with next to nothing of information regarding the powers of the suit – let alone how to control (not that I expected a downloadable pdf manual mind you).
    But, the appearance of Mrs. Pinkett did indeed provide us with a hint of how the suit functions – it reacted to our instincts and prime emotions!

    So just to see if we can calm ourselves and control the damn suit I vote we stay and confront the old bass. Besides, I’ve had enough of her constant banging on the wall complaining about the loud music (when no music is on), maybe this will make her think twice.
    Then again, probably not…
