She's stealing your lifeforce. Get out now.

      1. Oh, I dunno about that. Judging by the curses coming out of that box, Wheelchair Ninja is still pretty full of vinegar.

        1. I believe that vinegar is used in some pickling processes, but who does it convey the spiciness? I know it gives it a bite from the acidity in the end product, but what about the oh so spicy heat?

        2. With a lot of pickles, the spice comes from an added ingredient, such as garlic. So… Garlic-pickled ninja?

    1. We know she liked David (believe that’s the right name, the blind teacher).

      My guess would be the female suitors are smart enough to stay away or know she’s not into them and don’t bother.

      The men however, are stupid. :p

      1. Female suitors in packs, perhaps? We saw some of those sexy assassins go for the guys at LoveCon, but I reckon at least some of them were into Tarra. I fear Tarra is only into Tarra.

    1. Seeing McFatFat’s capabilities, it boggles the mind what *this* demon cat can do. In other news, shouldn’t McFatFat belong to Anise, the sister aligned with gluttony?

  1. Cause that’s what Demon Cats do…Judge you to see if you are worthy of being in the presence of Tarra. If not, your soul gets sucked out and your body put with the other male suitors…

  2. Who do we think Tarra’s been dating? I’m gonna guess Mr. Freeze, Atomic Skull, and …. someone who’s heart is made out of pure energy? MY comic-book lore is weak.

        1. Ahahaha, Radioactive Man? That’s Rainier Wolfcastle. “Sir, you’re line is ‘Up and Atom.'”
          Radioactive Man in Schwazeneggeresque voice: “Up and At’tem.” “UP AND AT’TEM!”

        2. Blue-the name is Rainier Wolfcastle.

          Rainier Luftwaffe Wolfcastle, according to the Simpsons wiki.

        3. “No beer and no TV make Homer something something….”

          “…Go Crazy?”

          “Don’t mind if I do!’ (Goes Crazy)

    1. Dude, this man is witnessing secrets of the universe and all it’s costing him is some manual labor. If I were him, I’d be sticking around also.

      1. The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.”

        Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave.

  3. And now … an evil cat pet. All she needs now is an 60’s style egg-chair with buttons on the armrest and she’s the next Ernst Blofeld.

    1. We meet once again, Mr. Kahn. I’m going to make it absolutely certain that this will be the last time.

      Ack, can you imagine Ernst Blofeld played by Vincent Price?

      1. I need to really pay attention to poster’s names. The first thing that came to mind when I read “Mr. Khan” was Khan Noonien Singh. Ernst Stavro Blofeld vs. Khan Noonien Singh. That would be interesting. (Price and Montalbán of course. The scenery would be begging for mercy.)

        1. Technically, my DJ friends all call me M.C.Khan as in the Wrath of Khan because my DJ nemesis at the time was a JPop guru named JeanLucPikachu (or JLP). His logo was a Pikachu in a Star Fleet uniform. My logo changed almost immediately after to a guy with a metal hand and scruffy white hair.

      2. So we meet again for the first time and the last time.

        *Activates his magnetic wrist watch, which then flies off his wrist and sticks to the metal ceiling.*

        Damn it Q! The bullet proof underwear better be more effective than these stupid gadget watches!

  4. Kyle, look again at the box of dismembered various organs you have NO PROBLEM with carrying and think to yourself “Why doesn’t this bother me as much as the demonic cat glaring a hole through my soul?”
    But then again you already ignored all other universal signs of “Turn around and leave” so man up and go say hi to the demonic cat.

  5. That kitty is just upset she is nowhere close to as powerful as McFatFat and doubly so because he wastes it on eating harbingers of doom

  6. Considering Tarra keeps the remains of male suitors in her home is a good sign our boy better start running. However the fact that he is currently holding on to a box of organs and is more concerned about the cat probably means Kyle isn’t the most sensible man. Also, seriously, Tarra keeps getting more and more super-villain. I figured ‘The Perfect One’ would have some skeletons in her closet when she was introduced but DAMN. The skeletons aren’t even in a closet, their just packed into boxes and sat on her shelf. Tarra’s isn’t really going to just let Kyle go now that he’s seen all this, is she.

    1. Well, if you recall the first encounter where we were introduced to Wheelchair Ninja, Tarragon had broken his spine. Later on, when she blew up the building for the last time, she mentioned that she only goes out on dates with guys who aren’t total blatherskites. However, I surmise that this is the first time that we may be seeing Tarra’s ‘Blatherskite’ gallery.

      And since the head is still swearing, we can see that Chris’s rule is still in effect.

        1. Rarely does diet anything taste like the real deal, thus I would think diet moon pies would be a waste of materials.

        2. They used to put sawdust in stew during the World Wars to keep people from feeling hungry. It wasn’t until later they realized that was not good for the human body, and stopped buffing the stew fed to poor people with sawdust.

          Sorry, that was a tangent to the original MOON PIE discussion. Carry on with your Moon Pie selves.

  8. I think the combination of Tarra’s figure and the coolness of her stuff has Kyle enthralled. He got to stick his head through a portal to the center of the earth! Box o’ Ninjorgans is nothing compared to that.

    1. I was convinced during LoveCon that she was already going full rogue.

      Most super villains aren’t really EVIL in the sense that they want to see the world burn, and I don’t think that Terragon does either. She thinks she’s smarter and better than everyone else, and that she knows what is good for everyone else. Her version of morality doesn’t conform to the conventional forms of good vs evil, so she’s acting in a very Lawful Neutral manner before she flips to Lawful Evil.

      1. The ends justify the means. And, to her, the “normies” can’t begin to understand the ends, let alone the means. And, you need whole teams of sexy assassins to be those means, to bring about the ends, that “you just wouldn’t understand”. (Because the ends exist ONLY to justify those means, really. )

        So, she associates with others with her kind of “vision”.

  9. So, Tarra is a Lex Luthor just waiting for her Superman. She’s smarter and better than anyone around her, but for the sake of appearances does things that benefit others, a là the President Luthor arc. But when the man of steel came back, he couldn’t help himself. Tarra just needs someone to fight to turn full villain.

  10. All of a sudden I’m imagining… how terrifying might it be, to witness Tarra when her biological clock begins counting down?
