Her generosity knows no bounds

Even though he's as useful as a broken arm, she's still keeping him in on the prize. Isn't she just sweet?

Ok guys, it's just up ahead. Seriously, thanks though. I'll make a specific note to try not to kill you in the future, unless of course I forget, or can't tell you apart from some other minions.
You're just lucky you brought up the pint about Ridley's slide... and you damn well better make sure he lets us ride it extra.
Oh, I'm not worried about that at all. I guarantee you'll get to slide 'till you can slide no more.
But... hmm... come to think of it, we might need a little more help than the three of you.
Like, what kind of help do you need?
Well, there's pits to jump over, so fliers... and plenty of 'em. I'm thinking like... another ten or so.
Pits. Well super, so that makes me...
About as useful as a punch in the kidneys. But don't worry, I'll still tell Ridley to let you slide for offering.

Metroid, Samus, Kraid, and the rest of 'em are all property of Nintendo, who to my knowledge wouldn't do anything such as sue me or shut poor Planet Zebeth down, because they're so damn nice, and Metroid kicks ass : }
This particular comic strip was made solely by me, by that happy little program known as KolourPaint. Yes, the one that everyone runs in fear from. That's why the comic looks the way it does.
