Looks like things are going just according to plan.
Addendum: In many ways, the way things are now with Takeshi's mother are worse than they were before the supposed 'restore'. For one, plausible fixes to the issue (which- at a minimum- must include some resolution of her extreme fear and hatred of the yet unveiled entity her son's appearance reminds her of) are harder to plan now.
Unrelated Addendum: What does the phrase "Tern of Veritas" invoke within your- or anyone's- mind? How about the words 'Shield', 'Shadow', and 'Phantom'? What does "The Nine" signify to you? How about the "The Thirteen"? All of these- and more- will be relevant as soon as I get into a state of mind that let's me write about them.
Closing Addendum: But for now, it's almost morning where I live, and I'd like to get at least three hours of rest before having to introduce 40 machines to the new decade. I bid Arcadia and its pupils- and those who portray said pupils on the stage that is the Comic Book Rumbles sub-forum of the Comic Book Resources forums- adieu, at least for now.
