[Comic for Thursday, May 5, 2005]

Special Guest Colorist: John S. Troutman of Troutcave Comics


[[Back at A.I.M. headquarters...]]
1st voice: So your "day job" is to be a college professor? And it was your doctorate thesis project that gave you your powers?
The Inexplicable Speck!: Yep, and you'll never guess who the dean made chief lab safety officer...

The Inexplicable Speck!: I mean, you blow up half the building and miraculously survive, and they put you in charge of safety as punishment. The dean's got one wild sense of humor.
[[Everyone is back into regular clothes now, except the Speck! He has removed his cowl, and now sports large rectangular glasses.]]

Sharon: What possessed you to become a super hero?
The Inexplicable Speck!: Eh... I figured if I had these strange abilities, I might as well put them to good use.
The Inexplicable Speck!: I've met my share of bad seeds, and this world -- well, *my* world -- is screwed up enough as it is. If one person can make a difference, and that one person has to be *me,* then I'll do whatever I can to make things right.
The Inexplicable Speck!: It's bought me a lot of enemies, on *both* sides of the law. But I'd rather be called a vigilante than watch innocent bystanders get hurt.

The Inexplicable Speck!: Personally, I'm more fascinated by this virtual reality turned interdimensional transport thing Nick created. You had no idea that *this* universe was real?
Nick: Not really. I thought I *created* Absolutely Incredible Man; I hadn't even considered an alternate reality may exist where he and the others were really *real.*

Nick: Obviously, I'll have to check my notes when we get back. Fortunately, I have a mechanism that will let us return home at any time.
The Inexplicable Speck!: Well... At least you guys *can* go back...
