Flashes of an alternate 1999.

Red light district. The Five Swell Guys. Limp band with a brazenly attractive lack of outfit for the guitarist and in the foreground 'Synaptic - Einstein in a Bottle". I want a swig of that.

Promethea takes Barbara to the hospital.

One final warning before Barbara goes to the emergency room.

We should make it a point to finish the entire course - I have a feeling that the antidote at the end is a must-have.

The transformation to Promethea is undertandably traumatic so Sophie goes to her friend Stacia.

This very well rendered taxi driver got it right on the nose.

Taxi driver has a dark secret.


One of the assassins, Andras, causes the taxi driver to shoot himself. Assassin just did a good deed.

Meanwhile, Stacia's solution to Sophie's 'Promethea problem' is to invite her to the concert.

A Caduceus is a short staff entwined by serpents and surmounted by wings. Because of the staff's association with Hermes it is associated with areas of human life that have traditionally been the province of Mercury: death rituals, commerce, animal husbandry, gambling, stealing. Interestingly, it is said that the touch of the caduceus grants a peaceful, gentle death. The touch of it to the dead brings them back to life. It remains to be seen if it will have this function as Promethea wields it.

Promethea can see Andras' and Marchosias' real forms.


Look how a big deal that Caduceus is.

I love this exchange between Stacia and Sophie/Promethea.

Andras and Marchosias have opened "a door" and this is what it looks like.

Oh no, Stacia gets sucked in to that door or gate or whatever it is.
