Working on your Doctorate in Mad Science? Consider making Girl Genius your dissertation topic.

Okay, Simon's still in it. He's still in peril of overtaxing his aged self. As he himself said about his city-wide machines of omnipotence: "I am the only weak component". --MadCat221 (talk) 04:08, March 20, 2017 (UTC)

Not to belabor the point here, but there's a reason why Martellus is in armor that makes him look like Andronicus and Agatha is in a white dress that makes her look like a Heterodyne bride.  It's going to take some time travel to sort this all out... 14:23, March 20, 2017 (UTC)

Well now, lots of stuff to keep the little grey cells ticking. We have the presumable mention of Euphrosynia Heterodyne, and the curious comment that she vanished in Van Rijn's lab while he was researching the Enigma after a break in. As they all seem to know about it I hope we get to see a flashback later. We have the personality of another contemporary of the time, Faustus Heterodyne, in the form of the Dingbot Castle about to be plugged into Paris again and potential holder of knowledge as to the real purpose of Euphrosynia's marriage to Andronicus. Exciting story telling here. Blitz (talk) 14:40, March 20, 2017 (UTC)
Nitpick- Simon didn't say anything about the Enigma, although it's certainly possible that's what Van Rijn was working on. It would be an interesting parallel if Euphrosynia was deliberately created to lure in the Storm King, just as Agatha was (evidently) deliberately created to be a vessal of some sort for her mother. --Geoduck42 (talk) 21:33, March 20, 2017 (UTC)
No Nitpick about it - we know that Van Rijn was heavily researching the Muse of Time/Enigma at this period thanks to the notes he left behind. Saying that Euphrosynia was 'deliberately created' is a bigger Nitpick for me - how did you come to that conclusion? Just because females are rare in the family doesn't mean its totally impossible for them to come along every so often via non-engineered means :p    Blitz (talk) 18:25, March 23, 2017 (UTC)

What is Martellus waiting for in the first panel? Argadi (talk) 07:54, March 21, 2017 (UTC)
