He's now shown to be human, which can be a shock to ANYONE to see. I think Stan's one of the two people whose life is changed forever in this storyline, because it's hard to see a hero in the same light after something like this.

Some of my brother's friends go to Virginia Tech.
I've been thinking that maybe I should do something about this as a comics writer. Go out there, take photos, do interviews, see if I can shed a little insight. It's a five-hour drive from where I am, and I worry that such activity might come off as exploitation. But still.

At best, it's a very warped reflection of the series-altering installment I'm really worried about, which will take place a little while after "Dinner For Six." That one worries me like a knife in my gut. You'll know it when you see it.

When you call 911 to report a stabbing, police and ambulance are dispatched. However, I am a little puzzled by the address. That looks entirely like a school gymnasium to me. So wouldn't he give the school's name?

Hmph. I'm a bit skeptical of this explanation. Judging from my own experience on crushes, your crush getting *hurt* doesn't diminish the crush. If anything it's the opposite, if you start thinking they need you now to be there for them.
Stan is certainly in shock over this, but I don't see why it should diminish Rich in his eyes. It's been a while (roughly 2,5 millenia or so) since heroes were meant to be actually invulnerable. Since the advent of Christianity at least, heroes getting martyrically hurt only increases the perceived heroism.
But I guess this all depends on Stan's personality itself.

That- or those teachers are the worst chaperones of all time. >_>
