Our Characters in this issue are:
Angel: Well, of course.
Gwen: The electricity-firing mutant.
Nina: Werewolf girl.
Cordelia: The awesome Dragon.
Connor: Angel's son.
For reasons which I won't go into here, I'll not be including Wes or Gunn, even though they're in the comic.
Our Characters Are Aces!
Angel-cakes: Angel's take down of Burge's demonic son with a thrown stake to the eye was pretty awesome. Especially, when we find out Angel's not really himself in a few issues. It gets a KUDO.
Gwen: Gwen doesn't get any power moments in the issue. No kudo.
Nina: Nina also doesn't get a powerful moment. No kudo.
Cordelia: Anytime a Dragon spit roasts dozens of demons, you issue a KUDO and hope she's feeling more friendly. Here you go, Dragony-Goodness.
Connor: Boy-wonder doesn't do anything this issue to earn a kudo.
Our Characters Are Zeroes:
Angel: Well, Angel does manage to piss off the local Demon Lord quite deliberately, which is probably not so smart. But since it's a demon lord, I'm much more inclined to kudo than criticize. No bad marks for Angel.
Gwen: Was it really necessary to throw around the lightning at refugees? I'm gonna issue a Quarter-DEMERIT.
Nina: Nina does lick a girl, freaking her out, but this is due to the affects of Hellangeles so I left her slide.
Cordelia: The Dragon does nothing to earn a demerit. Which is probably more fortunate for me, than her.
Connor: He doesn't have the chance to fail.
And, that's it for Issue 1. See you in a few with the Buffy S8, Issue 1 KUDO/DEMERIT list.
