I shrugged.

Whore.

Is his power essentially the D&D spell Vicious Mockery, as in insults that actually physically hurt?

Or maybe he’s conjuring a whore out of the gas?

The puff of smoke that accompanied the word detonated like a small thunder-clap, mere inches from my face.

Hah, it is! An explosive interpretation of that idea. It’s not a cutting remark or a biting insult, it explodes in your face.

I flinched, but it hadn’t been intended to harm.  Only to alarm.

Its bark was worse than its you get the idea.

I wonder if it has to do with the volume. Also, I wonder if the severity of the insult has to do with it.

I also wonder if he got this power from being viciously insulted by someone, or from being unable to physically defend himself and being given a power that could hurt with words only.

Does it have to be directed at someone, or could he help with the demolition by insulting some walls?

He sniggered.  I’d never met anyone who really sniggered before.

I could see how Coil thought Barker and Bitch would be a match.  I could also see where there would be some friction between the two.

Hehe.
