Mathew Robert Ignash: Dear Renegade Rhetoric,
Can you honor us with tales of your glorious adventures from after you left the miserable rocky planet Quartex?
Cy-Kill: Damnation and good riddance to Quartex.
In the years since that woe-begotten misadventure, my Renegades have been busy. There was the time we discovered an ancient temple high in the Himalayan mountains. A careful search yielded a capsule with a cyber-mimetic virus. It nearly forced the Guardians to their knees, but Rest-Q was able to develop a cure at the last moment, thwarting my plans.
Louis Sun: Do the Renegades have a medic counterpart to Rest-Q?
Cy-Kill: Dr. Go gets the job done. And at least he isn't an ambulance. What a cliche! I notice that the Guardians aren't the only ones who seem to lack the imagination to realize that a medical cyborg need not convert to an ambulance in order to be an effective surgeon. Go's Porsche 928S alt mode indicates a certain level of panache.
