Here's strip 34 of Dude in Distress, and it seems Femme has a reputation for being a bit picky when it comes to guys she dates.

Really, they shouldn't be surprised. After that summary of her dates to date it can be concluded that the, forgive the expression, "manly" men just did not suit her.

Also, what a name! I wonder if all of that name is real or if LL embellished it a bit. I also wonder if I should start calling her Cyanna... and if Clark should too.

You'll find out a good bit more about Femme's homeworld and family in Episodes 4 and 5, but she is indeed royalty, and the "High Battle Princess" is a title on top of her royal title of princess. So LL isn't embellishing.

The details of her past are major plotpoints, so no spoilers here. But you will get a brief teaser of some of the customs of Con'quoria later this episode.

A bit early for Clark to start calling her Cyanna, but you folks are welcome to.

That does beg the question, does the general public know FF's real name?
I don't know about Clark, but I'm quite sure that if I had a casual meeting, date or not, with a superhero one of my first questions would be "How should I call you while off duty?" I'm pretty sure most of them don't want to be constantly being called by their superhero title when they're just having fun.

I think her name is public knowledge, but she's best known by her superhero name. (And in casual settings, most folks refer to her simply as "Femme.")

I don't know, I thought Clark saving that kid was pretty darn manly.

Agreed. I don't ask for forgiveness regarding my words except when I feel they really are bad. For some reason I did not find this word yesterday, but the right term for those men would be _prestigious_.

Also, I just realized... Do all supers in this world have double word names with the same initials? (FF, AA, LL, BB...) Reminds me of the non-superhero naming conventions of silver age Marvel ;)

Yes. In this world, all superheroes have alliterative names (or at least all of the ones we'll meet).

Do you think after a while,we'll learn of Cyanna's occupation on Earth,unless she doesn't have a job???
EssayBee 10th Jul 2017, 1:00 PM
She's a full-time hero--no day job. She does earn a healthy income from some real estate, but she gives most of that money away to various charitable causes (including her own various charities/foundations). You'll probably learn a bit about all of this in this episode.

well, i think her and Clark will do right :)

Looks like all this is leading to a bet that will practically guarantee Clark a third date.
Black Rose 11th Jul 2017, 10:21 PM
After awhile,she and Clark will stop listening to their idiot friends and do what THEY feel is best for themselves...!

I wonder what Femme Fantastic has against Admiral Awesome???
EssayBee 16th Jul 2017, 6:53 PM
You think she doesn't like Admiral Awesome because of what she says here and said back in Strip 21 of Episode 1(http://dudeindistress.webcomic.ws/comics/30/). Personally, he's one of my favorite characters, but you'll get to make up your own mind about him when you meet him (which will be in a few strips).
