Water has no chill
Yeah, the ocean will kill you if you don’t take it seriously.
Which Cain did not do.
“The Sea does not forgive”
“And it will not forgive you.”
Remind me never to get on Water’s bad side.
Awww, she gave him water wings for his first class ticket to hopefully be reincarnated as a slug in the demon dimension.
This suckers plot got disarmed easily.
on that note, did she throw the water wings at him or did she use the water in his body to burst out? Probably be red if she did that but just curious!
To me it looked like they are two discs that came from behind to catch him unaware. So neither throwing it or using the fluids within his body, but using some other source of water to attack from his blind spot.
Cannot believe I missed that, Water in motion from behind rather than from the front.
I guess you can say she quite handily dis-armed him….. I’ll see myself out now
And this, my friend, is why you use dead man switches when dealing with super powered individuals.
It doesn’t guarantee success, but it typically makes the other side nervous enough to play ball for a bit before they pull off some magic trick.
guess Water was too much for Cain to handle.
You know, it occurs to me that Lia or Water could just Jackass Genie this guy. Sure, you’re now off the island… 30 kilometers off, straight up. Or in the middle of Arctic or Antarctic waters, where he’d freeze to death in five minutes. Or in the snow caps of some mountain in the middle of nowhere. Or in Challenger Deep. Or in some underwater cave somewhere.
And that’s assuming that telefragging is off the table.
depending on limits of their teleportation, they could also space him
That was what I assumed. That if she killed him that she would do it like she attempted to do it to Lia. Teleport him a few miles up and let gravity do the rest.
Especially since is demand was les than specific as to where to be teleportaed to.

How about this?
I would have preferred teleportation into an active volcano, but this works too.
..well, she certainly hand-led that transaction efficiently.
Yeesh, yeah shouldn’t have messed around with Water Cain! At least if he does die it shouldn’t take long because he’s gonna bleed out quick with both arms gone!
Unless Water somehow cauterized his wounds with those water-cutter blades she used, he should be sitting in a pool of his own blood right now. There’s a couple of really big arteries there in the arms…
It’s dark, and we can’t really see the floor, but it’s probably there.
If you look at Cain’s legs and body position in the last panel he is clearly sitting against a wall. He likely wouldn’t be shouting though. Traumatic amputation of both arms and the resulting massive blood loss would send him into severe shock within seconds. He’ll die of shock before blood loss and he’ll bleed out pretty damn quick.
Bilateral amputation of the arms at the shoulder, he has about 5-10 minutes of life, and maybe 2-3 minutes of useful consciousness, and it would be extremely difficult for anyone to staunch the bleeding.
And he’ll die of hypovolemic shock. (Shock from lack of blood volume.)
Trying to “negotiate” when you have a hostage can too easily backfire. You rely on the other side being too afraid to think rationally. Water’s comment about “transaction” should have been a huge tip off that she was thinking rationally.
And a slow death for him.
Not all that slow. Rapid blooss will quickly lead to unconciousness and death.
This is not an illusion, Cain, nor is it just a flesh wound. Both your arms have been cut off, and you’re rapidly bleeding out. Enjoy your last few minutes, you pathetic cur.
I’m sure someone will save him. Perhaps Life.
Life: *Comes back*
Life: This cannot get any worse.
Cain: *Bursts in, babbling incoherently*
Lia’s not gonna be super-happy with that. Sure Cain’s a psychopath but she’s not a killer.
And frankly, while he’s a dangerous killer he doesn’t seem irredeemably evil, just insane and a bit evil.
I love Water’s disarming personality here
I am half expecting him to come out next page with a “ah you thought that would stop me surprise [blank exposition maguffin] now I am going to kill Hue and its your fault” I don’t know but he seems that crazy
Tis but a flesh wound
