Here's strip 63 of Dude in Distress, and it seems word about Clark has gotten around among Femme's peers. I figure the identity of Suze's sis is probably pretty easy to guess.

Also, Episode 1 has gone off to the printer, so it should be ready to order very soon from IndyPlanet.com. Look for an announcement very soon.

Who is Sis that Suze is referring to?

BTW-There's ANOTHER character named Admiral Awesome...
Go here:

Well, if it's supposed to be an easy guess, I'm gonna go with Beauty Beast. Quite a bit of family resemblance there. On the other hand, with someone that close it's not much of a basis to conclude that word has gotten around. Unless rumour mills are very lazy in this universe or I'm mistaken about the time.

D'oh! Lady Lightspeed I mean. I blame the mixup on my illness-induced headache and drowsiness.

Yep, Suze is Lady Lightspeed's little sister.

I also was a bit mistaken about the time, LL and BB only got to hear about Clark earlier today: http://dudeindistress.thecomicseries.com/comics/48 That was some amount of time after either rush hour. We're now at about 19:30, so that may have been about two hours ago in which case the rumour speed is appropriate. But we read that scene before Clark's lunch, indicating that it was in the morning. Wherefore I still expect this rumour to have reached significantly further. And maybe it has?

I think it's pretty much only spread among Femme's hero friends--and their family members, if they don't keep their superhero personas secret from their families. Some gossip may also be spreading in social media now because of the public appearance at Pierre's. Oddly enough, I suspect Clark's friends are probably tighter lipped about the date than Femme's friends (granted Femme's friends would likely keep the talk to only their trusted peers).

Is this the first time that Clark has heard FF's real name? He seems nonplussed about it... or he's holding back reaction to wait until they're alone again.

Femme's real name is known, but she is best known by her Femme Fantastic moniker--essentially her professional or stage name. This being their first date, Clark probably doesn't feel comfortable enough to call her by her real name.

Maybe Clark can't even pronounce her real name?!?

It's certainly a mouthful or two, but by no means unpronounceable. I guess it is to some extent translated though. http://dudeindistress.thecomicseries.com/comics/48
