Ooh, looks like someone needs his mouth washed out with soap  ::) ...

Seriously, I wonder what Moss really wants with the Thin Man's research.  Death and destruction would be too straightforward an answer, as would pure benevolence.  And Moss doesn't quite strike me as the type who would create vicious mutants for kicks.  I'm guessing he's either looking for profit (selling the research to the highest bidder, or creating something with the research that would earn him money), or he needs the research to help someone close to him.  Moss also doesn't seem like the kind of guy who has any close friends or family, but anything can happen in Flipside, right?

Oh man...I hope Suspira doesn't explode or something.  I would hate to see her die, I'm starting to like her.

She is a lot more sympathetic when she's not acting like a bitchy little premadonna. I usually prefer strong women, but for some reason, vulnerability looks better on her. Perhaps because she acts less careless and stupid that way.  :-\

New Strip! YAY!  :D

Wow, Moss is actually semi-badass for a few panels.
But who knows how long that will last?
I don't really care who wins in their little family spat. But I hoping at least someone gets dismembered.
We have yet to see Mr Frank-N-Furter in action, but my money is on the heroes. These two would have to be supreme badasses to beat the whole team. Plus, if I want to get all post-modern-slash-meta-slash-cheaty-slash-cynical about it, we just had the team be captured, and them being captured again would be boring, so I think they will win or at least escape.

A showdown!

One evil kinky mage with a stick plus his s/m buddy who can nulify any magic attack and steal essence of every mage and make him/her faint, well maybe that rose too has a limit how much essence it can store, but we can guess that he can attack them with stored essence or boost up the uncle with it.

vs

Pissed of lesbian fighter with a magic sword (was it explained what the feats of that sword were? like Bern gain anti-magical shield? or it dispels any spell?) whose big minus is her resistance for mind spells and she can be easily defeated by magic.
Pissed off lvl2 sorcerer called Moss who can see other people weakness.
Fata an illusionist who works for Moss/is his partner but if she creates these illusions with her essence or that is her natural gift/curse not bound by magic rules we don't know yet, so maybe that rose won't work on her, but I really doubt that uncle wouldn't have some countermeasures against her prepared already.
One-hand May whose talk won't work here and drained genius sorceress are rather a burden in the fight.
Plus Glyph a sorcerer, and Crest a knight in the making.

That will be interesting fight to see, but our group is at serious disadvantage here sadly.

I disagree.
The power of Danzig and his butt buddy is an unknown quantity, yes, but they are still two unarmed magic users. Even if their power cancels out the power of the 3 (well 3 1/2) magic users on the good side, they still have to deal with Bern, Maytag, Crest and Glyph. Glyph's skill set is also an unknown quantity. He is also pretty pissed off, you forgot about that.

My guess is that the research might be a way for him to cure himself of that curse, or something related to the curse.

I'd be surprised if Moss wanted rid of his curse after so long. I'm guessing he'd make it stronger.

Probably make it so he could turn it on/off at will.

I despise Moss, but he seems a little more genre savvy then the rest of these goons. I would think his plans would involve something along the lines of using the regeneration magic to go into business for himself or selling some super-power serum to a kingdom.

Or he could just be after the "research" for its own sake, like say Mengelev or some other "scientists" from history that thought nothing of kidnapping, torture, experimentation, even murder as long as they "learned" something.

I think it's time to make some implications concerning Danzig's new "extendable rod" and why he needs to possess people to have sex.

I hope she can avoid Danzig's extending stick (no sexual undertones here) ;)

Have to say if Bernedette is made a fool of in battle in 3 panels I am going to be pissed. She is the best fighter in the group, and tons of time has been spent developing that. I'll take this time to admit that am not really enamored with any other aspect of her character. She can stand up to scythe wielding, blood barfing, mutant cannibals, no problem, so if she is put down with out a second thought, ala Worf in Star The Trek Next Generation, it will leave a sour taste in my mouth. If really hope that after all this character development and setting and all that other crap we actually have a decent fight scene. Lot to screw up here.

But New Strip! YAY!  :D

Edit: sorry if that came off as overly negative, but I just really want this to be awesome.

I think you're on to something. He also has the need to make his castle look bigger than it is (which is to say, nonexistent).

There was also a bunch of time spent on explaining how her style is defensive, yet here she's taking the offensive. Bern is fighting out of her element and if she gets owned, it will be because of that.

I don't think the "rod" is extending. I think it's firing projectiles of some sort.

And Danzig, if you knew anything about her at all...

1.) The "bath" incident is not the first rape attempt on her.

2.) She doesn't seem to be attracted to men in general. Perhaps that scar has something to do with it?

That sounds like you didn't read this comic from start, Bern's a lesbian so by default she isn't attracted to men in general and lesbians tend to be attracted to women only, she's not bisexual like Maytag, and I think she doesn't need any reason like she was raped/abused/molested by guys in her childhood to become a lesbian, she was just born that way.
