I'm sure Noah has a mental scar or two though.
This lady is just Genderbent Major Payne.
Oh. Oh dear. I have a feeling, given the lack of social skills of Noah and Jamal both, they are likely to get in a whole lot more trouble now.
Ouch, this lady got no chill when it comes to mission failures.
Subpar performance? Who's the idiot that send out students to do elite troops work?
Presumably "It was my first day" won't cut it?
That's a "funny" way of giving people permission to speak. And I'm also (1 not sure Noah and Jamal can speak for anyone but themselves and (2 pretty sure they all actually performed quite well today, all things considered.
Maybe if your magic soldier program gave them actual training instead of magic sportsball this wouldn't have happened?
The students don't even seem to know what each other's capabilities are except at a very basic level, much less how to form an effective team with each other.
And venturing into unknown enemy territory that interfered with their magic vision, to not just combat but perform espionage on other probably more experienced magic users? It's surprising this mission didn't end with *everyone* dead, captured, or MIA.
And that is how you know you probably will either get thrown at missions with little regard for your well being until you don't make it or get into serious trouble with command.
I mean, it looks like they captured two people, so is it really a failure? This lady just seems like a jerk.
@harison86: Not to mention they didn't even have the time to get good at magic sportsball.
I would agree that this is entirely the fault of the management. Unfortunately they write the reports and decide who to blame.
Oh damn ! Well they seemed somewhat ok but now they're going the stupid tyrant route.
Who is MIA, Alex or Gazz? I'd bet it's Alex, but could be surprised.
Well look at that, Noah took his hands out of his pockets
Jeez, their trainer was against sending them out because he didn't think they were ready yet.
This just shows he was right to think that.
Is this going to be the last Comic of the Decade?
Depends whether you use ordinal or cardinal count for decades. I prefer ordinal one, so the decade will end in one year for me. Most people seem to prefer the cardinal count though.
Anyway, I expect more cyberpunk motifs soon.
Noah muttered one time that provided intelligence wasn't even nearly sufficient. Will he say it again?
