Superhero Aesthetics // X-Men Pt.2

A new generation of mutants is emerging, that much is certain, and when they emerge, they will need teachers, people who can help them overcome their anger and show them how to use their strange gifts responsibly. They will need us.



“What happens after the glamour? What happens beyond the storybook ending? What happens when everything has worked out and you find out that you’re just a couple of people sitting on a bus, wondering who the hell you and the person beside you are?”

The Graduate (1967) dir. Mike Nichols



Holy shit we have all the Agents’ personal information available to us from Persephone’s Story’s final cutscene. Some of these Agents aren’t in the game or are only mentioned in passing.

Details I find especially interesting:

  • Kinzie is Agent Safeword! Braddock mentions her on the Ark by her codename, but I didn’t realize it was actually her! Also she’s only 24 years old, wow.
  • Kingpin is surprisingly short, only 175 cm (5′9″). Coming from SR you’d expect him to have been taller. (I’ll need to adjust my SR headcanons of him and Eli now because they suddenly became the same height)
  • Joule and Friday are 8-9 cm (3 in) taller than Daisy but you wouldn’t tell in-game because Daisy’s rollerblades make her seem way taller.
  • The shortest Agent is Gremlin at 170 cm (5′7″). No shorties in MAYHEM.
  • Oleg is 219 cm (7′3″), but there’s also some guy codenamed Socket from Iceland who is his height. Giants.
  • Scheherazade’s age is a mystery, possibly even to Persephone.
  • Quartermile is 52, so him and 20-something Colin potentially making out became a bit more awkward (in hindsight how did I miss his graying hair)
  • Dynamo is another codename for Lazarus, the upcoming new Agent.
  • Gat is curiously missing, would’ve been nice to get his deets too. Oh well.
