Running Late?

They usually have the novel uploaded by now... hmm.--MiamiVolts (talk) 10:35, 31 July 2007 (EDT)

  • Yeah. I've been waiting all day long but nothing so far :/ I hope they are not gonna postpone it till next week or sth like that... Waldmeister 10:37, 31 July 2007 (EDT)
    • It has been getting posted by around 8 am eastern, so I'm getting a little worried.--MiamiVolts (talk) 10:40, 31 July 2007 (EDT)
      • The PDF version seems to be posted, but not the interactive version. To access the PDF version click the link for GH:1 and change 43 to 44. Hope this helps!! Disney42 13:35, 31 July 2007 (EDT)

My theory (continued)

Wow, Paris in this week's novel... another coincidence (or is it...) with the Angela Petrelli / Claire convo... Also, perhaps Rollo Fusor's accomplice doesn't have just the ability of dehydration, but is multipowered like Peter or Sylar... this could be why Claude told Peter: Oh, you're one of those...--MiamiVolts (talk) 14:15, 31 July 2007 (EDT)

  • Nah, she's just Angela, that's all. If she was empathic or anything like that, she'd be more trusting of Peter being 'The one we need'. The big question now is how she manages to go from being a killer to a top Company member. --Unfalln 17:21, 31 July 2007 (EDT)
    • Angela having the power of dehydration? Interesting theory, I could see that. But it's true, having her switch sides that fast would be somewhat odd. --Piemanmoo 02:19, 1 August 2007 (EDT)
      • She doesn't have to have necessarily switched sides. Might the Company consider Haram expendible since he's planning to retire?--MiamiVolts (talk) 02:56, 1 August 2007 (EDT)
      • Who says Angela's a member of the Company? Sure, she seems to have an important role somewhere in the grand scheme of things, but couldn't she be operating a mirror organization? I mean, afterall, she certainly seemed to be giving orders to the Haitian when he was going against the Company, right? And Linderman said that there were others who lost their way and used their powers for personal gain--it would make sense that Angela is part of their organization....Just positing another idea. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 11:07, 1 August 2007 (EDT)
        • I've elaborated a bit more on my theory on IMDb. If you care to, you can check it out here.--MiamiVolts (talk) 12:14, 2 August 2007 (EDT)
  • (dunno where to put this coment) No, Lady Fusor can't be Angela. How would Angela have time to gallivant across Europe with this Fusor fellow while grooming Nathan to be a congressman in the US and raising Peter? SacValleyDweller 19:04, 2 August 2007 (EDT)
    • Lady Fusor... I like that name for her. :) Anyways, as I noted on the IMDb thread, you have to remember that the Company lost track of her for a number of years, most likely cause she stopped killing and went into hiding. And in 1990, Peter would be 10 and in school, so their nanny could handle him. Nathan would be 22 and in the service or just returning from the service, so he wouldn't be preparing for Congressman just yet. For more details, questions, check out the thread. Last I checked, you don't have to subscribe to IMDb to read the threads.--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:29, 2 August 2007 (EDT)
      • True, but consider this, Would Dallas Petrelli condone Angela running around with Fusor, engaging in criminal activity?--SacValleyDweller 21:00, 2 August 2007 (EDT)
        • Definately not. I already answered this on my thread. Remember that Angela said Mr. Petrelli tried to commit suicide more than once? Finding this out about his wife could be one of those times.--MiamiVolts (talk) 22:04, 2 August 2007 (EDT)
          • Still, I think Angela is a wee bit old to be doing those kind. She was what, 23 or so when Dallas was in the war in '68? She'd be 45 by here in the timeline, a little old to be doing that imho. SacValleyDweller 00:39, 3 August 2007 (EDT)
            • Too old for what? Regarding her age, by my calculations, she'd be about 43 in 1990 and Haram did say he took the case of Rollo Fusor 11 years prior (1979). How old do you think Claude and Haram are supposed to be in 1990? How old is Mr. Bennet in 2006? None of them are youngsters.--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:47, 3 August 2007 (EDT)
  • There's still more to this story than meets the eye. If Lady Fusor could suck Haram dry with a touch, then why bother with handcuffs and throwing him in the water? Is there some reason why she couldn't use her power, or is it a James Bond thing where the supervillan never just shoots him, but tries to arrange "an interesting demise" for him? (see Ill-tempered, mutated sea bass with friken lasers.) I think it's the former. It's almost like she wanted Haram to survive the encounter without tipping Fusor off. I think this strengthens the Angela theory by dispelling some of the concerns about her possibly conflicting loyalties. --AlanK 20:29, 3 August 2007 (EDT)
    • Yes, I mentioned this too on the IMDb thread that I linked and few people seem to want to read.--MiamiVolts (talk) 21:10, 3 August 2007 (EDT)

Fusor's last victim

If I'm understanding this correctly, Fusor was not the one who killed the guy, it was the woman. We shouldn't be calling the guy "Fusor's" anything, then. But even if he was Fusor's victim, he's referred to as the butler, so shouldn't that be the title of the article? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:22, 31 July 2007 (EDT)

  • Actually, we could call him 'Frenchie' too (that's what Haram called him, and I'd be for that), but 'Fusor's last victim' does make more sense for a number of reasons:
1) The butler actually referred to Fusor, if you follow carefully
2) If Fusor did also have the power, this would have been his last victim; if he didn't, he's at least an accomplice in his murder. Also, 'Rollo Fusor' is just an alias--in reality, the lady accomplice is the real 'Rollo Fusor', right?
2) This will be the last person for which the Company could believe Fusor was the murderer/accomplice.
3) We have a history of using these type of descriptive names, ie. Brody's next victim

Don't I have dibs for naming him first? j/k, heh.--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:13, 1 August 2007 (EDT)

  • heh ... I guess when the comic comes out in the afternoon, everything's up for grabs, eh? ... Being an accomplice to the murder assumes guilt, sure, but I still wouldn't call him Fusor's victim over the lady's victim...and since she doesn't have a name right now, "Rollo Fusor's accomplice's victim" seems quite bulky. "Frenchie" seems trite. You're right about "butler". How about something less speculative, and just leave it as "dehydration victim" or "Parisian victim"? (I prefer the latter.)

    Also, "Brody's next victim" is the name NBC used for the character. I personally hate it, but I guess it's better than the ambiguous "Union Wells student". -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:30, 1 August 2007 (EDT)

    • So are we also going to go back and rename 'Fusor's yacht' to 'Fusor's accomplice's yacht'? I think the implied guilt is enough to leave it alone. Also, there are three dehydration victims now, and two Parisian victims--as is, it's more specific.--MiamiVolts (talk) 01:07, 1 August 2007 (EDT)
      • It's just a very misleading term, since the guy died by dehydration, and not at Fusor's hand. And just because there is another victim killed in Paris doesn't mean that "Parisian victim" is a bad term for him--there are tons of NYPD cops, and lots of male students at UWHS....In fact the more I think about it, yes, we probably should rename the yacht (to just "yacht" to avoid speculation about ownership). -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 11:22, 1 August 2007 (EDT)
        • Although less likely, we don't know that he didn't die at Fusor's hand, and we also don't know whether or not 'Rollo Fusor' will now refer to the lady accomplice, so I suggest we leave it alone until after at least the next part. That said, I'm willing to compromise with 'Parisian hotel victim' and 'Cote d'Azur harbor yacht' if we don't get any more new information.--MiamiVolts (talk) 12:36, 1 August 2007 (EDT)
    • Incidentally, "the butler" is, I'm almost certain, a reference to the cliché "the butler did it", and not meant as a reference to a specific character. "Forget the butler ... it's always the girl". --Hardvice (talk) 00:40, 1 August 2007 (EDT)
      • Nice tidbit, Hardvice. the cliche makes sense.--MiamiVolts (talk) 01:07, 1 August 2007 (EDT)
    • Since you brought it up, is Rollo Fusor an alias? I didn't catch that.-- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:30, 1 August 2007 (EDT)
      • It hasn't been confirmed yes/no whether it is an alias, but I think there's good reason to assume it is... aliases are common with this show and criminals alike. Also, not sure if it's relevant, but 'rollo del fusor' appears to be spanish for the fusing roll of a copy machine.--MiamiVolts (talk) 01:07, 1 August 2007 (EDT)

1990

Haram says he fought in the Gulf. The Gulf War began on 2 August 1990 and ended 28 February 1991. I think it's safe to say that this story takes place sometime in 1990, not 1989. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:26, 1 August 2007 (EDT)

  • I think you're right, but just thought I'd note there's also the Iran-Iraq War of 1980-88 that some people call the "Gulf War".--MiamiVolts (talk) 02:18, 1 August 2007 (EDT)
    • See, now, this gets into an interesting thought--who is the American referred to in subtitle of this issue? Haram is most likely an Arab, but he might be an Arab-American. Claude lives in America, but has a British accent (Christopher Eccleston is from Lancashire, England). Interesting. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 02:28, 1 August 2007 (EDT)
      • It could be that neither one is the American. It's potentially the accomplice they are chasing which is American.--MiamiVolts (talk) 02:47, 1 August 2007 (EDT)
      • Lateral thought: The American is the vic! SacValleyDweller 00:15, 3 August 2007 (EDT)
        • It's possible, but Claude calls him 'Frenchie' so I doubt he's American.--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:23, 3 August 2007 (EDT)
