re Lusewing: Yeah, nothing against Joan but she doesn't have any of the superhuman senses and she's still a bit iffy about shooting people (which to be fair to her is a well-adjusted response). You can see her first attempt in the first panel.
re man in black: thanks ^_^
re Arrikanez: Poor Aylis, but at least he is well suited for his calling.
Alert horse! These guys are totally going to do better. The sleeves never lie! And I hear you about helmets: there's the eternal problem of looking silly (most real helmets do) and of making it impossible to tell the characters apart (since we don't have voices).
