"Weren’t we going to explore the outside world? Far, far beyond these walls… to the burning water and the land of ice, to the snowfields of sand. To that world my parents were always hoping to see… Isn’t that the dream we both shared?"
This part was really important for showcasing just how effective Sasha is at what she does.
When Shadis is explaining what some of the trainees’ strengths and weaknesses are, he says that Sasha excels at unconventional maneuvers, which makes her unsuited for coordinated movements within a group.
Here, Sasha is the first to react to a falling teammate. Most people would probably attempt to swoop down and pluck him out of the air mid-swing, but there was no way to do that in time before he’d hit the ground.
Sasha actually shoots one of her grapple hooks into the soldier’s leg, while using her other hook to hold them both up against the wall, saving his life thanks to an unorthodox idea and a quick reaction time.
While Sasha’s spontaneity is certainly ineffective for group tactics, this scene illustrates how that doesn’t make her a lesser soldier or regulate her to the “goofy team member who throws everyone off.”
Apparently Inque still does not have enough Bruce in her life, so this is for her.

nice text post where’d you get it the toilet store
Why would a toilet store sell text posts?? That doesn’t seem like a very lucrative good to sell at a toilet store……..
shane i’m gonna fill a pillowcase full of bars of soap and beat the shit out of you with it
maybe you can buy the pillowcase and the soap at the toilet store now that they’ve expanded their merchandise offerings
This is the person your algebra problems warned you about.
That was the image that ended “Ultimate Spider-Man” #1 many years ago and I wanted to repeat that image because it most defines the difference between the two characters. When Peter made it to the ceiling he was excited and thought it was awesome. Miles first reaction is, “Oh no!” That was very interesting to me. That left us with some mountains to climb. How is a kid who goes “Oh no!” when he discovers what’s happened to him going to end up in the costume next issue? And for those looking to see him in the costume he will be in it shortly.
Because here’s Miles, who is at the cusp of being a man, then all of a sudden he has this secret that he may have been ready to tell his father at that moment. Then two things happen: Number one, Miles’ father tells him the truth about their family, which involves not just him, but Uncle Aaron, who Miles admires. What that says to Miles — and for people who are looking for a real difference between him and Peter here it is — is that Miles wonders if there’s self destruction hard wired into his DNA. Is greed or whatever it is that makes people do something wrong even though they know it’s wrong part of his genetics? Is whatever it is that’s propelling his Uncle Aaron to be the Ultimate Universe’s Prowler in him?
Miles doesn’t know if he’s a good guy or a bad guy. He doesn’t know what kind of guy he is and than he finds out that his father wasn’t that great a guy even thought he’s trying really hard to be one now. Then it’s his uncle too. So is this in him? Is this who he is? That’s something that Peter never had to struggle with. People who discover that they have alcoholics in their family often wonder, “Am I an alcoholic too? If I drink will I lose it?” So he worries about what kind of person he is. He doesn’t know.
