Go Speed Go!

Who else thinks Tommy's codename needs some work? The uniform's not bad. Green seems like an odd choice but it looks good anyways. But the name, come on. It doesn't have any ZING! And it doesn't address his blowy-uppy abilities.

Where'd you get his codename was 'Speed' from??

Where did you hear that his name was Speed and where did you see his costume?

Costume was on the YA/Runaways Previews, a few posts back somebody showed a figure camouflaged on Teddy's costume, and well most/all of us suppose its Tommy.

It's in issues 12. I subscribes so I got it today. Apparently Hawkeye/Kate named him. Eli agrees with me that it's kinda lame.

You know, as much as I adore Billy, Teddy, Tommy and Kate (and I do!) I am honestly starting to think Eli is my favourite character...now how did that happen?

*joins in the loathing* I'm not gonna get to read it until my library picks up the trade.

I'll just link it here so I don't spoil for anyone who doesn't want it spoiled.

You can't be serious. Honestly.

*rolls his eyes*

I knew Heinberg was going to fall off the proverbial horse somewhere... (well, if you don't want to think about the timetravel shit from the beginning of the run...)

I don't have a scanner. The best I can do is barely visible pictures from my crappy webcam.

This is the page that shows Tommy in his costume.

This is a closeup of the word bubbles.

It's nearly impossible to see in the picture but it says
"Tommy? Who's Tommy?
The name's "SPEED".
Right, Hawkeye?"

Who is the other dark haired girl?

Jessica Jones. She's still hanging with the team. Pretty much nonstop it seems. And she's in the the final splash which shows the whole team together at last so I think she's pretty much their official mentor now.

Someone has got to scan this issue and make lots and lots of icons.

I I'm not too surprised that Tommy's costume would have green in it; to contrast with Billy's red security blanket cape-thing. They've already got the light-hair-dark-hair contrast, why not keep going with that?

I like the goggles too.

And as to the codename not addressing the explosion-powers...those are based out of his super-speed anyway, aren't they? Gotta agree that it lacks "oomph", though. Maybe he and Billy will both get new codenames when it picks up again in 2007?

Billy: It is NOT a security blanket. The next person to call it that is getting zapped. *grumble* Does he know that he looks like a DC comics villain? Do you think he did it on purpose?

Well... he is your evil twin. And I think he looks adorable.

Billy: You would.

Hawkeye made the uniform so it's her fault. And knowing her it was totally on purpose. LOL

I like it, because it shows he really couldn't care less about being a hero. He's totally just trying to get in Kate's pants.

LOL. I hadn't thought of it that way. Although I hope his speed doesn't apply to the bedroom deparnment or he might just disappoint her if he ever does get in her pants.
