Cool but Rude
Longtime readers will probably remember Candice's tenure as the undercover ninja mafioso "Sexxica", who hid her true intentions behind a bunch of incredibly lazy character tropes. (Aaron, Ox, and Scott were also all pretty trope-tactular, but unlike Candice, were probably not doing it on purpose.)
I picture the low-level Ninja Mafia of this era as being overrun by ninja fanboys who took their favourite childhood 80s cartoons a little too seriously. So it wouldn't surprise me to see they tended to hire new members with the same criteria one might use to cast a hyper-cliched action or superhero team. "Well, this squad already has a leader and a grumpy renegade, but we have an opening for the 'the brains' position. Can you wear a pair of goggles and say a lot of expository dialogue?"
Our next comic arrives on Wednesday. See you then, team!
