#610 - Materia-Lizing Concepts

Oh boy! Nothing like covering up your artist’s hard work with TEXT BUBBLES AND EXPOSITION!

Speaking of exposition, Zeichnenian was first introduced in this page! So no! I didn’t make that word up! Ian did! Blame him. :)

When the mammae of the non-mammal out-mammary the mammae of the mammals.

It is the unfortunate (though sometimes convenient) nature of comics that words take a physical form that has to be seen to be understood. It's why artists learn to make a lot of white space for dialog.
Also heh, text "bubbles". XD

Other than their fish-based names, something that some humans also share, do we have confirmation that this new (to us and the party) species is not mammalian? Even ignoring the more eye catching stuff - like eyebrows - the way they are drawn their skin could be similar to amphibians or fish or aquatic mammals. If it is that last one then... well... mammary glands would be appropriate, as would the eyebrows.. ;)

If the previous comment was entirely as a joke... my apologies. I didn't have my arms raised and it went over my head. XP

In all fairness, human females are one of only a handful of species that have permanent mammary glands. Most other species just have the boobs come and go as needed.

So in this case it's likely that they've got some human in them.

I'm gonna use the same defense here that I did for the Zoras in the Zelda franchise, the more human like appearance could be a product of sexual selection, even if they don't have functioning mammaries if boobs help them attract mates they'd still be selected for, it's more practical than a giant feather train or obnoxiously bright colors that make it impossible to camouflage.

If you go deeper into the Transformers lore...

"Energon (sometimes spelled with a capital letter, sometimes not) is the preferred fuel of the Transformer race. It takes many forms, including ore, crystal, gas, and raw energy, but it is most commonly used by Transformers in its liquid state, which is stored in many different mediums, most famously the energon cube. It is ubiquitous in Cybertronian culture; in addition to being the Transformers' primary "foodstuff", it also serves as the default power source for their machines and weapons, and is even used as a currency, a catch-all fuel of life, technology, war and commerce on Cybertron and beyond. This widespread use also comes in defiance of its extreme volatility: energon is prone to detonating explosively if mishandled, and is even used as ammunition in order to exploit this attribute.

True energon is an emanation of Primus, the creator-god of the Transformers, and is, in its most rarefied state, the basic building block of Transformers' bodies and sparks. A highly coveted substance, it is sometimes capable of inducing remarkable transformations in Cybertronians, reshaping and otherwise altering their bodies while imbuing great strength and other powers, either temporary or permanent depending on the duration or strength of exposure. True energon is, however, extremely rare: in most universal streams, the Transformers' long war has left Cybertron drained of all but the smallest fraction of the substance, and although it has been known to exist on a small sampling of other planets throughout the multiverse (usually Earth), its paucity leaves the Transformers usually subsisting on artificially-generated substitutes created from other local energy sources. "

Taken from the TFwiki. Not mentioned in that blurb is that the Transformers home planet of Cybertron? It is usually Primus in disguise. So... the connection between it and Materia is strengthened. Though a lot of this is a retcon, so Transformers may have ripped off Final Fantasy VII. XD

How long has it been since there was a "We're not saying that copyright name!" instance in the comic? I remember the moo-er, Mubble one, but were there others between then and now?

You know, in my bones I feel you're right, but I can't think of any immediately off the top of my head.

So stories have us fighting over magic crystals. And other stories have us fighting over oil or quais-oil. What if there was a way to combine the two.

I still dig that city name.
