Talk:Mistress Quickly

Okay, for one thing, I'm not convinced her speed is superhuman. I mean, do we know she isn't just really fast? Pistol, Doll and Points are just very skilled, why think Quickly is somehow supernatural? I even suspect Bardolph's fiery breath is just a skill. And furthermore, why is Quickly's page under "Mistress Quickly"? It isn't consistent with the rest of Falstaff's gang. We don't have a "Mistress Doll" page for example. --Matt 06:56, 22 October 2009 (CDT)

From what I've seen, Quickly is potrayed very similar to how other super-speedsters like Quicksilver and the Flash are depicted in comics. Personaly, Quickly and Bardolph's abilities strike me as superhuman. I admit it's rather ambiguous, so how about we ask Greg to clarify and until then we word it more ambiguously? e.g. "Bardolf seems to possess the ability to breathe fire, whether this abillity is supernatural in nature or a learned skill is unknown" -- Algernon 09:22, 22 October 2009 (CDT)
I don't see Bardolph's powers as either supernatural or super-human by definition. (Haven't you guys seen fire-breathers before? Like at the circus?) That's not to say they are not supernatural or super-human or helped by technology, but there's certainly nothing in the issue that definitively assures us of this. As for Quickly, (a) I really like terming her speed as "extraordinary". That seems to fit. I'm not saying the source or extent of that speed at this time. But it feels right. And (b) I do feel it should either be Mistress Doll and Mistress Quickly. Or just Doll and Quickly. Having one a mistress and not the other seems odd to me. But that's just me.--Gweisman 18:54, 22 October 2009 (CDT)
Thanks for your input Mr. Weisman, I'll leave the issue of superpowers ambiguous and edit the Doll/Quickly articles per your suggestion. -- Algernon 19:10, 22 October 2009 (CDT)
