So, we finally meet Micro, the star athlete-turned computer geek of Braeden Stronghold. I liked the idea of this one just because of the sheer irony involved. Just as it was ironic that Hal was turned into a chicken (directly related to his somber high school nickname), it is even more ironic that a super tall basketball player was turned into a mouse. I might keep incorporating this same idea when I introduce other characters (at least to an extent) just to open up some doors for later on as far as theme is concerned. We'll see.

Well, it does actually make some sense. Mice are surprisingly fast and athletic. (Heck, it's not the best example, but the first thing immediately coming to mind is mice in Chronicles of Narnia. :P)

So in addition to having a mind that probably can crunch numbers really quickly and instinctively, he's probably retained a fair bit of athleticism. Perhaps not as much as he had, but enough to be a genius bruiser.

After all, furthering the idea of irony, how ironic would it be for a small mouse half your size and weight to totally kick your ass? :P

Ha, maybe I should have made him a little turtle. I never thought of it that way.

Great joke setup, delightfully unexpected but believable within the rules ya had set up for your world in this comic ;)
