OooOOooooh!  Sudden second-meaning for this storyline’s title, “Stalemate.”  It’s not just that Walky’s a stale mate, it’s also about the stalemate between SEMME’s forces and the Aliens that The Cheese wants to maintain!  Oh how clever.  I gift myself a cookie.

Anyway, the abductees are getting stronger.  This is my band-aid over them not appearing to have superstrength early on, because they didn’t, even though now they clearly do.   But, see, now they can do sweet-ass superhero stuff, yo!
