What else did she know about Marquis? She vaguely recalled Uncle Neil talking about the man when he’d been talking to Laserdream about villain psychology. There were the unpredictable ones, the villains who were hard to stop because you couldn’t guess where they’d strike next, but who were less practiced in what they did and made mistakes you could leverage against them.
Hm. I wonder if Bonesaw falls in that category, or if she’s an exception.
There were also the orderly ones. The ones who were careful, who honed their methodology to perfection, but they repeated themselves, showed patterns that a smart hero could use to predict where they struck next, and often had rules or rituals a hero could turn against them.
That sounds more like the Marquis we know.
Which wasn’t to say that one was smarter than the other, or that one was better. Each posed problems for the local authorities and capes.
Oh, absolutely. Just different problems.
Marquis had fit into the latter category, the perfectionists, the pattern killers. He’d had, as Neil explained, a warped sense of honor, underneath it all. He didn’t kill women or kids.
Huh. Well, that’s something, I guess.
I’m guessing he was arrested by a team of all-female heroes.
