Review of chapter "Interlude XXVII" from MarcusRowland
Review:
I think that ending with "me, Homeland Security and the others who helped take down Gojira and the Umbrella Corporation" might make the point a bit better. She also doesn't make it clear that she is as likely as the others to have the long-term problems faced by the other superhumans, which seems a bit unlike her.

Review of chapter "Interlude XXVII" from fanreaderonetwo
Review:
I notice that Terawatt, Willow or whoever wrote it _carefully_ didn't mention the GCI drug, which has a vastly higher "mutation" rate and a much lower "horror story" rate, barring possible brain biochemistry problems. NTM the possibility of using the GCI antidote for "fine tuning", ala what Danielle Atron did, or to chicken out after trying GCI for the first and last time.

Wondering how long it would be before Atron or the Orphans made sure that the _good_ news about GCI is widely released, while minimizing mention of its nastier effects......
They might also release GCI's formula and production info, w or w/o "errors" that might increase the odd of producing its nastier effects. Purely for the increased chaos and their amusement of course. Image of the SRI and Terawatt kept busy running around capturing and neutralizing criminals, idiots and _now_ crazies who used or were involuntarily dosed with GCI. Image of chaos seeking radicals, scumbags and idiot pranksters dosing individuals (personal enemies and rivals), foods and water supplies with GCI. Image of an HS after idiots dosed the cafeteria foods......
This would leave the SRI and the other good guys frantically trying to clean up the mess, tying them up, exhausting them and increasing the chances of taking casualties. Image of an SRI "capture team" dead tired, nursing injuries and mourning dead comrades.

Review of chapter "Return" from fanreaderonetwo
Review:
re
"I think of "By His Bootstraps" as the 'immutability of time' mechanic, although the 'plate of spaghetti' is a great hprase for what he did. At the time it was new and almost unheard of. Now it's been done a lot, so it's not as impressive for the reader.

Analogously, "Them!" was novel and shocking when it came out, and now it's trite and 'seen it'."

******

That is the fate of "revolutionary" trope namers. Startling and thought provoking when they arrive, a generation later a newby seeing/reading it say "yawn".

Review of chapter "Interlude XXVII" from GwynApNudd
Review:
>> Awesome line... but you just know someone, somewhere in universe just read that and thought "Challenge Accepted"

Two different kinds of people would see that line as a challenge. The "pure-evil"/criminally-insane/take-over-the-world type (like Doctor Doom) and the intrigued restless type -- usually the opposite sex from their chosen superhero(es) who simply want to match skills with and/or get a rise out of them (like Catwoman, who "retired" from supervillainry when these goals were met). Which kind will become Tera's next recurring adversary? (Of course, right now, Danni and Maggie are more than enough for Alex to worry about, being her (pre-Crisis) Luthor and Brainiac.)

Review of chapter "Interlude XXVII" from RobHumm
Review:
You mentioned Grrl Power earlier the ending seem to be the same message as Max in 175 "pose dramatically much" much more effective by being understated I think.

Review of chapter "Interlude XXVII" from NeverTooOld
Review:
Short, sweet and very clear about the dangers and downsides of having superpowers. Especially about the final consequences of becoming a super-powered villain. Although she doesn't explicitly state it, it is clear just how strong people like Klar and Action Girl have to be to deal with the crappy hand they have been dealt and continue to be positive and effective members of society.

Review of chapter "Interlude XXVII" from Tempi
Review:
That was a very thoughtful and insightful perspective on what dangers the wanna-be hero or villain living in the Terawatt reality are exposed to. Excellent work as usual. I look forward to reading more of my #1 favorite story on BtVS.

Nice. Most of this could have been written by Alex but that last line is so Willow.

Review of chapter "Interlude XXVII" from LordBaz
Review:
"Just remember, if you're a supervillain you have to face ME"

Awesome line... but you just know someone, somewhere in universe just read that and thought "Challenge Accepted"

Also, was that written by Alex or Willow?
Because so far, I don't think there is a heavy enough clue bat around to let Alex say that and mean it yet.
Even though she is clearly seven shades of badass.
Comments from author:
Willow most likely changed what Alex originally wrote to make it look more dramatic. After all, that's how Willow sees Terawatt.

Review of chapter "Interlude XXVII" from MistofRainbows
Review:
Nice interlude. I really like the tone and such even if the chemical she got exposed to is probably a bit safer than what the North Koreans were exposed to... I like that last line though... "With superpowers, sooner or later you will have to face ME."

Considering she's defeated a fair number of threats already that's probably a very good point.
Comments from author:
I think it's a lot more dramatic than "...you will have to face someone you've never heard of."
