1) Hey, look, Sal’s a little beat from throwing Monkey Master.  See, she has some physical limits!

2) For serious, Squad 135 is always hugging one side of any panel they’re in so I don’t have to draw the fifth member in.  Always.  At this point, I thought if I drew her in, folks would wonder who the heck that person was, and so it became a running gag to myself.
