Felicia's ability

Is Felicias ability Disintegration touch like the one from Mano a DC Comic Supervillain?--Muffin84 07:50, 29 April 2008 (EDT)

  • I think we're stuck with speculation until we get more info on Felicia. Personally, I still think it's induced radioactivity-- "disintegration touch" was just a nickname Felicia gave it, like "x-ray vision" for telescopic vision. --NellaBishop 08:34, 29 April 2008 (EDT)
  • Well she called it something that doesn't only specific one element, has to account for something. --  Seclusion  talk / contribs 08:44, 29 April 2008 (EDT)
    • Right. We know she has an ability and we know what she calls it. That's probably enough to get started with. Of course, we've never actually seen what it does, so we should be careful about how we phrase it in the article until it's confirmed. Of course, it's hard to imagine that an ability called "disintegration touch" would do anything other than disintegrate objects, but we technically haven't seen it. For now, we need to just note that that's what she claims to be able to do.--Hardvice (talk) 10:51, 29 April 2008 (EDT)
  • Maybe she turns things into oatmeal?--Piemanmoo 19:07, 29 April 2008 (EDT)
    • Wouldn't that be ironic? Still, if she can turn people to ash she could at the very least turn them into a poor substitute for cream of wheat. Still if I go any further I'm worried I'll sound like the grey guy from VG cats. --PeterDawson 19:16, 29 April 2008 (EDT)

Easter egg?

Is there an easter egg for this novel? I can't find it.--MiamiVolts (talk) 17:41, 29 April 2008 (EDT)

  • I don't see one either, and none of the fan sites I've visited have found it either. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:50, 29 April 2008 (EDT)

So many locations!

Do we really need an article for the "Company file room" and the "Combat training room"? Not every room in the building needs its own article. I mean, if they show up again, sure, but I think everything that happens in these two rooms can be covered on the Primatech Research article. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:24, 29 April 2008 (EDT)

  • Seconded. I think in this long break, we're getting a bit crufty. -- Lulu (talk) 22:46, 29 April 2008 (EDT)
    • I think we already saw the Company file room. Isn't that where Mohinder saw one of the Paintings of Eight? As for Combat training room, I agree it isn't needed and I didn't include it in the summary.--MiamiVolts (talk) 22:52, 29 April 2008 (EDT)
      • What? Which one? What episode? And are we sure it's the same file room? I think we're much safer just listing it all under Primatech Research, rather than making an article for the room that's not necessarily a "file room", but a room where Thompson reads Donna's file, and very possibly not the same room seen in an episode. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:51, 29 April 2008 (EDT)
        • I think the segment I'm recalling is from Kindred, but you're right there's no way to tell if it's the same room so we don't have to make it this time (I had also thought wrongly that there would only be one). However, it does make sense for the next novel to continue there since that's where this one left off. I guess we'll have to wait and see.--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:19, 30 April 2008 (EDT)
          • Actually, the next novel ends in the file room. Maybe an article about the room isn't a bad idea. However, I still think it could all be summed up on the Primatech Research page. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:28, 30 April 2008 (EDT)
            • Have the file room article, don't have the sparring room article. No harm, no foul. --DocM 08:42, 30 April 2008 (EDT)

Review

The Donna series of novels is getting interesting. I like how Chuck followed Noah's no-pension plan comments with Thompson, Jr.'s comment that the Company doesn't fire people. I sense a pattern. :) However, I could do without the profanities of Felicia's character. BTW, Donna's Big Date, Part 1 still has several articles to be completed.--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:30, 30 April 2008 (EDT)

  • Ok, DBD, Part 1 is all finished. Cool. :)--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:15, 5 May 2008 (EDT)

Company attire

I think we should mention somewhere about the standard issue clothing Donna was given to wear by the Company, but I'm not sure where that would fit best. We could make an article about it, but I think that could be overkill. Any opinions?--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:49, 2 May 2008 (EDT)

  • Yeah, overkill at this point, though if it's mentioned again, why not? ... Right now, I think mentioning it in the summary of the article about the Company is a good idea. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:29, 2 May 2008 (EDT)
    • Good addition to the graphic novel summary. I also added some info. regarding the gear and expense accounts to to the "About" section. One thing that has been mentioned before are those night-vision (infrared) goggles/binoculars. Noah and the Haitian used them to see Claude and Peter in Unexpected, and Haram and Claude used them in Golden Handshake, Part 2 to spot the accomplice in the hotel--I'm thinking that being used three times is enough to warrant an article for them.--MiamiVolts (talk) 01:20, 3 May 2008 (EDT)
      • To me, it sure looks like Haram and Claude are using regular old binoculars in Golden Handshake. Plus, they wouldn't have any need for infrared goggles since the lights were on in the Paris hotel. But I don't think an article on the equipment is a bad idea. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:09, 3 May 2008 (EDT)
        • Nice work on the goggles article. It's true I guess that it wasn't shown in Golden Handshake whether or not they were simple binoculars or the night vision variety, but binoculars are still goggles so I added them.--MiamiVolts (talk) 22:56, 3 May 2008 (EDT)

Animated videos

Have we waited long enough now for direct links to the animated videos? It been several weeks since the last direct link and it looks like we're not going to get any more of them...so I think it's safe now to remove the item from the checklists of this novel, the previous novels without them and Template:Newgnchecklist.--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:38, 2 May 2008 (EDT)

  • Direct links can be found on the Graphic novels library, They may change though. -Lөvөl 15:51, 2 May 2008 (EDT)
    • Ah, cool. I thought NBC had removed the links completely. Nice find. I've updated the links as needed. The links for the novels, etc., are all subject to change, but it looks like these video links are changed regularly so I've updated the template.--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:57, 2 May 2008 (EDT)

Easter Egg

No easter egg for this GN? --Snow Leapord 21:04, 5 May 2008 (EDT)
