Review of chapter "Battle Lines" from Starfox
Review:
Great scene with Willow beating Cordelia. I feel with Azure Crush - and if that's Catwoman, then Bruce has his work cut out for him. And that Plan C of Terawatt is truly nasty. Jo's been too smart for her own good, tricky Situation there. I also like how the world pulled every superhero together to fight this, they might prevail, though I fear Maggie has a few aces up her sleeve to survive even if she loses the battle.
Comments from author:
Maggie always has aces up her sleeve. If she played poker, that is. Too bad she isn't there shouting 'I am eenweencible!' :D

Review of chapter "Battlezones" from Starfox
Review:
Intense fighting. I love how Batman turns the tables on Bane with his brain, not brawn. And Shaman in Action with Julie - well done. Truly terrifying Terawat too.
Comments from author:
Batman's brains was what I always admired. Not the Frank Miller 'driven sociopath' thing. Ugh.

Review of chapter "Confrontations" from Starfox
Review:
Great Chapter - good combat Scenes, I love seeing Carter and Ultraman in Action, especially from her perspective, and the scene at the Macks, with the neighbours showing powers, was a superb idea. Then the Twist at the end... nasty.
Comments from author:
Thanks. I did hint for hundreds of chapters about the neighbors.

Review of chapter "Where Raptors Dare" from Starfox
Review:
Very good chapter - wheels within wheels, plotting, and counter-plotting. Well done!
Comments from author:
Thanks. I plotted it all out ahead of time, which makes it a lot easier to write this sort of chapter.

Review of chapter "The Gathering Storm" from Starfox
Review:
Good reaction by the Team - I loved Buffy's call, and reaction, very touching. Poor Willow, is that actually her old school nemesis? Loved the revelation about Jack and Maggie being siblings of sorts.
Comments from author:
Yes, perhaps Willow really is cursed in some way.

Review of chapter "Honeymoon’s End" from Starfox
Review:
Great action scenes there, I loved Buffy on the rink, and her finishing pose - perfect!
Comments from author:
I set that all up ages ago and just hoped no one put the pieces together.

Review of chapter "Honeymoon Period" from Starfox
Review:
That's one heck of a bad day, and more to come. On the other Hand, if this goes well, then the Empire could have just pushed a fence sitter and a loner into Team Terawatt, and made Alex redon the cape.
Comments from author:
Making Alex re-don the cape would count as a BAD thing for them.

Review of chapter "Crossover List" from SirLee
Review:
Now that it's over and I can look at it from a slightly more removed perspective...

...I have to say that my favourite chaptes are:

1. Chapter 32-33. Why? I don't know, but perhaps because this is ALEX, and not Terawatt being the "hero". Willow was at her lowest, and who comes from nowhere and lifts her spirits, tells her she is a great person and gives her renewed purpose? Not her parents, not her alleged friends -- this teenager that she had never met.It's a very *human* story. Oh, sure, Barbara did play a significant part, and Alex being Terawatt helped. But in the end, it wasn't a "superpowers save the day" story, it was an "Alex dives in to help someone" story.

2. Chapter 58. Yes, there was a superbattle, but that's not why I keep going back to reread it. No, what I really liked about this chapter was how Hanna interacted with Terawatt and the others. It's the first time we see Hanna in this story, and she is perhaps at her most human. She is not so much a supersoldier there, but a little girl pretty much resigned to die, who only wants to die in familiar terrain. She sees Alex and thinks she is a fairy (not an angel, because I don't think Erik Heller was big on teaching religion to Hanna). Her reaction at Jack's antics was also endearing, and Lupo letting her concerns (and possible childhood trauma) show up was also touching.

3. Chapter 48 (and, partly, 49). A purely human, superpowers-free moment. Jack comes meet Willow, and not only he doesn't pressure her in any way, he respects her competency and abilities and makes her feel appreciated and valued.
Comments from author:
Thanks. I have my own personal fave chapters, but some of them are because I was able t slip stuff past the reader at that point, or because I was able to pull off something I had been setting up for ages.

Review of chapter "Crossover List" from AntonioCC
Review:
A great read from the beginning to the end. (In fact I started my nth re-read yesterday). One thing that I have liked is that in the end SRoAM is not a dark story. Serious, yes, and goes sometimes into dark places, but never reach the depths of hopelessness of, for example, Worm.
Comments from author:
Well, Alex Mack, despite some potential dark areas (being captured and dissected for your superpowers, having your parents kidnapped by a killer, finding out your boyfriend's father was murdered by said killer, bullying in schools, etc.) is a very light show.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from mooncowthree
Review:
Did you ever consider Cassandra Cain as another unknown project Galinka survivor? Seems like she would have been a perfect fit.
Comments from author:
Actually I had a list of possibles on that, and a list of other possible Maggie projects, and... well, I was rather obsessive when I was building my original outline for the story.

Review of chapter "Crossover List" from cwolf
Review:
It will definitely be a few weeks.

Until the weather settles down, I'm not going to risk driving to it. Tourist traffic alone has caused wrecks at times. So I need to wait for a week of no snow.

Basically I need a close eye of where I know a lot of the action will take place. I do plan on changing things due to this being an au, but the area has to be set in mind first.
Comments from author:
Ooh, research! I approve! After all, I am basically Ridiculous Research Lady. (That means no cape, because I spend all day sitting down.) Research where you can go to a place and study it and then use the setting? Even better. I recommend Paris. And San Francisco. And Miami. I still have not made it to Tokyo.
