“I knew you were here when I was a block away,” Alan spoke.
Either we just broke the One Steve Limit at an inopportune time, or we’re in the past.
With that in mind, who is the POV character? Burnscar?
And why are we reading about this in this particular Arc?
“The number of lights on in these offices is asking for troublemakers to notice and come by. And the doors were unlocked.”
Carol looked up in surprise. Composing herself, she answered, “I’m not concerned.”
Carol, as in Brandish? She knew Alan before he became Mannequin?
So is Carol our POV lady in the dark?
The man laughed, “No, I imagine you aren’t.”
“For a little while, at least. The partners asked if I could come by in case we had to close up shop in a hurry.”
Partners? Close up shop in a hurry? None of this sounds like something I’d expect Sphere to be talking about.
“In case the city is condemned?”
We’re in the present.
And there’s an Alan.
Did we just break the One Steve Limit? Or is everyone mistaken about who exactly Mannequin was? I think that would take away from Mannequin’s character, though.
