103 Comments on The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Chapter One—Page 43

Yay! Finally! \(^o^)/

(You’ve been wanting to see that guy whacked upside the back of his head, too, right? 😀 )

All righty. We had our fifteenth bonus page in a row this week on Wednesday and we’re already at $157 towards the next bonus page!

Special thanks go out to long-time supporters Charles M. (who makes their second generous donation to The Young Protectors!), Lisa G. (who makes their eleventh generous donation to The Young Protectors! Rock on, Lisa!) & Saxon B. (who makes their fifteenth generous donation to The Young Protectors! Holy cow, Saxon! Thank you!) and a warm welcome and grateful bow go out to new supporters Jessica C. & Emily R. for their generous donations over the last few days!

Big hugs go out to new friend of The Young Protectors Andreas B. and also to long-time friends Adriane L. & joshua G. for their super-generous $25 donations! (And this makes Adriane’s ninth and joshua’s eleventh super-generous donation to this comic! You are rock stars, Adriane and joshua! Thank you so much!)

Thank you all so much for your incredible support! We’re now getting to the real fun stuff and because of your generosity, we’re getting there in record time. You are all awesome! 😀

So! Kyle fights back! Yes! But Hunter’s got all that armor and weaponry and Kyle’s still all naked and vulnerable… Has Kyle actually turned the tables or will robot-pants recover and rally?

Tune in next Saturday to find out! Hope to see you then!

DING! DING! DING! DING! DING! DING! DING! Edit 1/25/13 5:13 PM: You’ve done it again! Thanks to your generous donations, in addition to our regular (including tonight’s!) Saturday updates, there will be a bonus update this Wednesday, January 30th of page 45! You all ROCK! Hope to see you there! 😀

  • Oh I’ve been waiting for that!

  • Laurenihilation

    FINALLY. 😀 

  • Erica

    ohhh nice block of the cock there. XDD

  • This page is so early!  Also, yay Kyle!  Lay waste with the pipe!

  • samae

    Yet another reason to hate the guns

  • Niggle

    My first thought: YEAH! Love the name robot-pants. XD I’m afraid Kyle will have trouble by virtue of that violent idiot probably having a thick skull, but we can hope he’ll come out unscathed and lose his invisibility just as Annie finds him. ;D

  • Now WHO is the one bleeding!

    Good thing Hunter’s head is kinda big because all that metal basicly makes it the only good target *lol*

    Kyle’s face in panel 4 makes me smile. He’s just so ‘kyyyaa’ (fight scream).

    One little thing. I know Kyle is invisible and all but shouldn’t some of him be visible under Hunter’s arm in panel 4?
    It always amuses me when the junk area is covered by what ever item or effect made in the panels, but I think at least a flesh color should be seen there.

    • Travis

      No no… he’s just standing really awkwardly… >.> XD

  • There’s a “big gun joke” in there but I think it’s too obvious…

  • ha ha! beat the crap out of him!

  • KiannaLeigh

    Booo! Down with robo-pants!

  • i didn’t know Cable Jr. was such a “Moral Guardian.”

    how many more times shall he be directly, or indirectly, responsible for Creative “Junk” Obscurations in this story?

    (is that what the old man has to look forward to, in a few weeks from now??)


  • Yami_no_Ite

    Hmmmmm. I was curious as to just how far the 15 bonus pages in a row have brought us, and if it weren’t for them, we still wouldn’t know what that mystery powder did. Also, I can’t wait to see Annie kick some ass, because you just know he’s gonna. He just that much of a bad-ass that he will win his fight.

  • He just HAD to fire his pistols in that shot…

    And finally, the damned sock is off!

  • I’m just surprised that hitting him in the head with that bar didn’t make a “~GONG~” sound.

  • Jacquie_H

    I must say, this was a VERY satisfying update.

  • I read this comic and then 20 mins later i read it again and realize in the 5th panel OH! The blast is covering his dick I JUST REALIZED THT!!

  • RustyBurrell

    You are avoiding explicit nudity like the PLAGUE! Reminds me of the naked fight scene from Beowulf XD

  • Hit him again, Naked Kyle!!


  • Mikko Rauhala

    Go Naked Kyle! Though also, why wouldn’t Naked Kyle just go quietly away. (Well, I guess he’s just a fight, not flight kinda guy when pumped full of adrenaline, and nearly full of lead. Wonder what kind of guy he is when pumped full of something else.)

    • coyoteconscious

      Well, he is a superhero.

      • [nods]  To quote Captain Everything  from the mid-80s Normalman comic: “Our fans’ near-instatiable lust for gratuitous violence and frivolous fisticuffs”

  • Monica

    Yeah! That is right Kyle, beat him to death!! *cheering*

  • Very good ! But we still haven’t seen his willy… 🙂

    • toli Bera

       something tells me this is gonna be like Beowulf (the movie) where they go to ridiculous extremes to hide his detrangle from sight.

    • Dracon Ra

      Remember, PayPal doesn’t like porn, not sure how strict
      they are with that.

      In Germany it would be ok as long as it’s not erected,
      but in the US? *Shrugs shoulders*

      • MalikTous

        What PayPal likes or doesn’t is irrelevant, they’re still on boycott for their sloppy money handling and sleazy pseudo-ethics. Use a real service and forget those money lice!

        • Dracon Ra

          I don’t really use PayPal, mainly for donations on this comic, what was the name? Something with super heros… 
          Look, what I meant is that as long as Alex depends on PayPal for donations he has to consider this. And I don’t think there are much other services he could use instead.

  • Lady Mania

    The joy I feel at watching that over-sized pompous ass knocked upside the head is unparalleled. 

  • Go Kyle!!! Now, get the HELL outta there!

    Also, is it just me that’s looking forward to when Kyle turns back un-invisible and nekkid? ¦3 I’m such a perv.

  • To a bystander this must be just a weird day. Robocop here is either trying to kill a very animate inanimate object-or one is kicking his ass.

    • LimpBiskit

      Nah, it’s Hong Kong. Weird shit is always happening in those larger asian cities.

  • You have to respect a man who fights naked.

    (I wonder if it was Roland Deschain who said something similar about Eddie…)

    • coyoteconscious

      Yes, Roland said that.

      • LimpBiskit

        Oh my god you ref’d the gunslinger.
        I love you.
        lets go have slowmutant babies.

      • Thankee-sai!

  • freak

    Lol. Great censorship. XD

  • Tristan BlackWolf

    This isn’t quite like the nude wrestling scene in “Women in Love,” but it’ll certainly do the trick… ~_^

  • Krondor2000

    I don’t think we will ever see one hint of Naked Kyle’s meaty goodness as long as he’s still 17.

  • Naomi Mowatt

    Please let us know what happened to Duncan in the next one… I want to know!!! xx

  • what happened to duncan? i am gonna gess kyle go’s to save him XD and also who said you needed powers, he drew blood without his powers XD

  • what happened to duncan? i am gonna gess kyle go’s to save him XD and also who said you needed powers, he drew blood without his powers XD

  • Dee Dee

    I hope Kyle grabs away his weapons too. There’s no point beating him in the head, if Mr. Psycho can manage to shoot him. 

    • Wayne Lunkwitz

      Grabs his guns and uses them on him! I don’t take kindly to guns…unless they are used properly.

  • YangYueLan

    It was Invisi-blue butt with the lead pipe in Hong Kong!  Sorry, could not resist. 

  • I don’t know if this is great, let’s protect Kyle’s innocence, or it’s all a big sham. Even GUN FIRE is so conveniently placed as to protect the reader’s eyes. 

    Yeah. I’m one of the petty ones just waiting to see dick. Yay for making the comments section more intelligent~!

  • Wayne Lunkwitz

    *squeals with joy* Kyle is still alive! and apparently pissed…go get’em Kyle!

  • Rex Justrex

    And there are always things in the way, including that simpleminded twit.  He wouldn’t be anything without his armor and gadgets.  Gets his ass kicked by a naked lad.

    • I’m sitting here thinking the EXACT same thing!

  • OK, what I want to see now is this guy doing like youth hero outreach where he mentors Kyle’s super squad for a day and everyone thinks he’s great and can’t figure out why Kyle hates him for no reason.

    • [cackles with laughter]  Oh yeah, that would be amusing too.

    • Interpolation

      Oh, God yes.  At the very least it would be hilarious or at least interesting for Kyle to meet the shiny-weapon person as Red Hot.

  • DarkFeanix21

    Whoo! You go, Kyle! So great to see him fighting back now that he has at least a little bit of an advantage.

  • coyoteconscious

    Unless that guy’s got a metal skull, being hit in the unprotected head by a pipe should really have put him down already.

    Of course, no brain, no pain.

    •  but his a super “hero” so his well super

    • Ryn

        no brain, no pain

      i love it. 😀

  • Midwestmutt

    This is the part where the audience stands up and cheers.

  • Ryn

    *cackling madly* yes! finally he gets his butt whooped! Smack him harder Kyle!!!!

    watching this happen makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.

    • Interpolation

      This comic has so many warm and fuzzy moments.  🙂

  • Never piss off a red headed stud.

  • Barbara Ruiz

    love how he’s been naked for a few pages but there’s always a way to not see the goods

    • the dangly bits are never flattering while they’re all… dangly

  • Dracon Ra

    I just hope he’s going to rescue Duncan soon, I miss him already 😉

  • Who needs super powers when you are invisible and have a piece of Rebar?!

    • toli Bera

       I was wondering if that was aluminum or Rebar!

  • Meghalodon

    Its official: Blamblamblam is my new favorite onomatopoeia. 

  • OZ_in_OK

    That’s right Kyle!  Take that big stiff pole and smack him in the face with it!  Make him eat it!  Eat it!!  EAT IT!!!!

    *glances around at everyone staring at him*


    • Ryn

       *laughing* oh god. XD

      i now have the image of hunter being whacked upside the head with a giant rubber dong, thank you.

      •  Isn’t there a video game that lets you do just that?

        • LimpBiskit

           think you can on GTA-SA. Might be wrong though.

        •  Saints Row 3 😀

    •  That was so ridiculously awesome!!

  • fujoshifanatic

    This is NOT the kind of rod I want to see Kyle playing with, but oh well, I’ll takes what I can gets. 😛 Does feel good to see him finally open up a big ol’ can of whupass on Big Freak’n’ Gun Guy. You go Kyle! Punish him for almost Blamming your goodie bits off! 😀

  • MalikTous

    The only thing that would-be vigilante has done well is demonstrate the reason real heroes train in the same discipline as the cops and learn not to endanger bystanders. Hope Kyle uses him for trepanning practise!

  • Yessssss! I did want to see him cracked upside the head 🙂 Kudos.

  • Marvin_Arnold

    “CRACK” doesn’t sound healthy…

    • Ryn

      there is more fluid than brain in hunter’s head, so i don’t think it did him too much damage yet.

  • Yukiness

    I can’t help but laugh every time I see the last panel.

  • Looks like this’ll be the first time in weeks we don’t have an update on Wednesday. 🙁

  • *lol* I just came looking and thought: ‘No page yet? Is he late- oh wait.. right, it only updates today if there’s a bonus page’.

    This is like.. anti-climatic XD

  • No bonus page today, noooooooo :'(

  • xLizardx

    Noooooooooooooooo! No new page! 🙁

  • SpiritravenCathaldus

    lol no bonus page so I just reread it again from the start.  It was better the second time 🙂

  • I’m not sure which fact is funnier; that the War-Machine knockoff is getting the tar beaten out of him, or that he’s getting the crap beaten out of him by an invisible NAKED TEENAGER.

  • I’m so sad about the bonus page! 🙁 If i had monies i would give you some 🙁 I wanna see a different kind of rod in his hands 🙁 So i just read the comic over, still stunning!! Fantastic artwork <3

  • Well, the thing about the phrase “We’ve reached the point where we get bonus pages more often than not.”… The thing about it is that occasionally we still get a ‘not’.

  • Elliot Payton

    “So! Kyle fights back! Yes! But Hunter’s got all that armor and weaponry and Kyle’s still all naked and vulnerable… Has Kyle actually turned the tables or will robot-pants recover and rally?
    Tune in next Saturday to find out! Hope to see you then!”

    Why doesnt anyone read this?

    • Who hasn’t read it?

      • Elliot Payton

        apparently everyone since ppl keep asking where the new page is

        • Did they get deleted?  Because I don’t see them…none of the posts below imply anyone can’t tell the difference between a regular page and a bonus page.

    • Feverfew_M

       Once the donation target is met, Alex goes and changes the text into “Wednesday” if we’re in time for a bonus page. That can happen very shortly before the page is due. And since we’ve been lucky for 15 weeks in a row now, of course people came in on Wednesday and were a bit surprised. 🙂

  • I love this hes fighting full naked!! hahahahaha!!!!

  • For the first time in ages, I am CAMPING!  Who wants curd, yogurt, and indian food made with my hands?

    • Yami_no_Ite

       I do, I do. Food is always good. I’ll pass on the yogurt though, no dairy for me. 😛

  • Ree

    I’m loving all of the conveniently placed “fig leaves.” Omg.

  • SuckerForCheesyRomance

    Just because i can, BLAMBLAM.

  • strangeangel24601

    And this is why you make sure to include a helmet when designing your Super High-Tech Robo-Armor, whether you actually use your brain or not.

    • Curt Clark

      Best. Comment. Ever. ^_^

  • Kattriella

    Those blasters are concernedly close to Kyle’s “blaster” . . .
