56 Comments on The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Chapter 5—Page 44

Stick a fork in our boy — he is done!

So! Not only was Kyle able to block Laampros’ attack on Tsunami, he was actually able to control the fireball and throw it back! What does it mean? And what else will he be able to do?

Tune in this Saturday to find out! Hope to see you there! 😀


  • DonnaC

    You tell him Kyle

  • So proud!

    • Pietro7

      Proud cubed. Go Kyle Go! Stuff him back to Hell!

  • davefragments

    Kyle gets his mojo and throws back Laampros’ fire back at him.
    It’s nice to see Kyle with acting self-assured rather than wandering in Laampros’ loser diatribes. I was getting tired of Laampros the Blowhard.

  • Jeff Baker

    “I’m done letting monsters try to talk me to death,” Love it!

    • Juliette Leroux

      Pretty much what we all thought these last 15 pages…

  • Saxon_Brenton

    It’s easy to see that Red Hot is angry. He’s not even bothering to announce the name of his attack in the usual super-sentai/sailor scout method.

    On a more serious level: love the line about monsters trying to talk him to death.

    • Curt Clark

      Let’s face it; calling this “Fire Soul” would be a LITTLE on the nose.

      • Saxon_Brenton

        I was thinking of something along the lines of “Mega Fireball Redirect!”

        And in situations like this, multiple exclamation marks will handwave to hide awkward phrasing.

        • You know, sometimes I wish they wouldn’t translate attacks. Even if it is a direct translation, it would sound better if they left it in the original. Those originally in English have no excuse.

  • Zephyr10101

    Alex wants the suspense to kill me. I’m positive

  • stickfigurefairytales

    Way to go, Kyle!!

  • I really want Kyle to keep the ears…

    • Arthur Dent

      I agree. And maybe the cute little fangs, too.

      • Pietro7

        Urk. No fangs. Fangs interfere with kissing, singing, and eating, three of the great pleasures of being alive. No fangs for our boy, let him have pleasure in his life too. He has suffered far more than enough.

        • And having read a book series, and you talking about pleasures, there’s another area where fangs can get in the way *lol*

          I’ll just leave my brain in the gutter, and get out of here xD

          • Arthur Dent

            They never seemed to have an issue with fangs in _True Blood_… besides, there’s the horns, claws, and knee and elbow spurs that might be quite awkward during certain activities.

          • Klaus

            Such as dressing.

  • EMR updated –

    mention of physical assault with deadly intent by a parental figure

  • Curt Clark

    Hooray! Now he’s Sunfire with a side of Pyro! (That makes me far, far happier than it sounds like it does, I love X-Men) 😀

    This is easily shaping up to be my favorite part of the comic; I love the moment in the battle where the hero smacks down the villain’s ideology as well as the villain themselves. And Kyle and Gordon are DELIVERING.

  • Adam Black

    Now open a portal back to hell and stuff big Red in it.

    • timemonkey

      Portal’s still open.

  • timemonkey

    So, Kyle’s uniform must like magically fireproof. Like it just hit me, Kyle’s been like engulfed in hellfire and normal fire this entire fight and he’s still almost entirely undamaged. Whoever made that outfit deserves a nobel prize.

    • Nahuel Méndez Diodati

      Hexadecimal <3

    • davefragments

      Edna Mode

      • HermeticallySealed

        Notice; no-one on the team has a cape.

  • Sapfo

    Nobody puts Kyle in the corner!

  • Laampros has nooo feel for ‘too soon’.

    It’s less than a day ago since Kyle got screwed over, in several ways, by Duncan, Sircei and Laampy himself, and at some point he’s going to let all that anger out. Laampy tried to make him into a person of pure rage, to let the beast out, and he got what he wanted. Almost anyway.

    Problem for Laampy, is that Kyle did let his inner beast out. On him.

  • Wyrmidon

    Great balls of fire! Finally!

    And let’s hope this time it will be over, this scene was dragging a little bit.

  • Kyle has had it with villain monologues. No more telling him what he should do, what he is and how he should feel. There’s only so many monologues you want in one day, and Kyle’s limit is passed.

    • Shadizar Silvermask

      I bet we’re all pretty much at our limit for that. 😉

  • Cman65

    Red Hot turns it up to 11

  • Klaus

    Kyle, talking its oponent to death didn’t work for the monster, and it is not going to work for you.

    • Shadizar Silvermask

      That’s more Kirk Summation/Pre-Ass Kicking One-Liner territory, he’s summing up how much of a loser his father actually is and declaring his intent to put the beat down on him.

  • Aitsuki

    Careful with those spikes, Kyle! You’ll take a flaming eye out!

  • Jeldenil

    Do I spot a phoenix in that fireball?

    • I can see it now! Cool!

      • Jeldenil

        Help will always be given…

  • I don’t think winding Kyle up over Duncan was the best line for Laampros to take. If nothing else, it’s a reminder of the difference between a man who was doing the wrong thing but with good intentions, and a being that revels in death and destruction. Compare and contrast Duncan’s speech about being glad Kyle’s got friends like the Young Protectors, and Laampros’s attitude…

  • Klaus

    What happened to “It is my fire, and it does my will”?

    • timemonkey

      For which of them?

      • Klaus

        Laampros said that a couple of pages back.

  • bronakopdin

    I’m cheering really hard here!!!
    GO KYLE!!!!
    And he’S right about the “know about me” parts… as if “knowing” someone was so easy for either Laampros or Duncan

  • Nate

    Ah, there’s nothing like a father-son game of catch….

  • Yeahhhh go Kyle! You tell him!

  • Madock345

    When you’re so surprised to be saved you develop telepathy…

    Really dig Kyle’s attitude here. Really feels like Laampost is in for an ass kicking.

  • Juliette Leroux

    Isn’t spandex-asbestos mix potentially carcinogenic?

  • Rob Roy

    “Sure as hell”? Hmmm… I think Kyle is surer than Hell/ Laampros at this moment.

  • Jason Moon

    “I’m done letting monsters talk me to death!” Isn’t that called The Hannibal Lecture?(It may not be, I just love the trope name)

    Of course the response is Shut up, Hannibal!

  • D. G.

    Hmmm. I hope Kyle develops some new power that can help him against Laampros. *cross my fingers.

  • So, Duncan still has a long way to go, seeing how Kyle puts him in the same boat as Daddy dearest.

    Honestly? Kyle? sure as Hell?

    • timemonkey

      Pretty sure the only place Duncan is going is to prison.

  • Karol Chmielewski

    YOU GO GUYYY! Kyle is awesome in this page so cool yet so hot 😉

  • TwilightDreamer

    O_O….uh oh….ok everyone, please exit the furnace in an orderly………oh forget this….RUUUUNNN!!

    • davefragments

      When someone yells “RUN!” then you “RUN!”

      hint: {movie reference}

  • Pikinanou

    Come on! Finish him!
