Here's strip 58 of Dude in Distress, and it seems Clark's time with Femme hits its first roadblock.

I love the changes in Clark's look.
First he has a "Oh, how sweet how Femme interacts with the children" look and then a sceptic "you better not be using Femme's kindness to promote your local" look. Or at least it the impression he gives to me ;)
But yeah, he really has to get used to this kind of situations if he wants to go out with. superhero

I wasn't sure what to expect, but in hindsight I should have expected something like this. I like it!

It seems like it would have been simpler if she had just told him "odds are good I'll get mobbed by children, so I'll need about 15 minutes." But maybe she wanted to distract him from his nervousness about the date by giving him something else to think about!

P.S. I'll bet if Admiral Awesome was mobbed by children, he'd rudely tell them to get away from him. Probably while making eyes at the cuter mothers. Even if those mothers were in the company of their spouses!

Admiral Awesome is actually really good with kids, although he probably says things that make the parents want to cover their kids' ears. (I suspect we may hear a bit about Conq'orian views on children later.) But you're definitely right about him flirting with the mothers!

And now the previously perplexing 15 minute timeframe for the interruption makes perfect sense.
