It's the retro-Archie-comics-with-actual-sex thing, again. I mean, the problem has got worse for the writers since Ma3 started; these days, Nathan's behaviour just looks like the setup for a #MeToo-based joke.

Haha! Casual molestation~
That would've flown in the Nineties, but seems exceedingly outdated these days.
Not the writer's fault and I'm sure they would never condone it but last night one of the UK news channels showed a video of Harvey Weinstein getting very handsy with somebody who allleges he went on to rape her.

Seeing that and then seeing the same kind of thing played for laughs here did leave a pretty bad taste in the mouth.
Yeah, I understand the writers probably didn't mean any harm for what is intended as joke, yet it seems to lack any intelligent foresight behind it, as well as - like I said - feels like it is crossing a line that should be avoided these days.
i mean to be fair it feels like intelligent foresight went out the window ages ago with this strip.

Ok, how is Charity not a fallen angel at this point? She's lied, she let Prudence take the blame for her, and now she's molesting someone while claiming that it's "god's love".

I love charity’s hair in panel 3. Zii’s hair does something similar when she’s... intrigued.

In this universe, your hair does some strange things when confronted with sudden arousal.

I find Charity very creepy here. Like a priest who promises a little boy everything is fine because it’s just Gods love and that makes molestation ok. 🙅🏻‍♀️

Anyways, can't say I'm not curious how this will pan out, but can say it feels like it will be annoying.
It flies any time. It's funny now. It's not aiming for some high brow laughs, but I chuckled. The "God's Love" line sold the whole scene. It's obvious Charity is done with being an angel. :ymdevil:

We really are back at the Carlin "Seven Words" era of comedy, aren't we. =\

There is a difference between saying words are unacceptable and saying actions are.

I doubt if many people reading here would be too upset if Charity or any of the other characters used "bad" language. Making humour out of a mentally confused person being sexually assaulted isn't quite in the same ballpark though as somebody finding an expletive funny.

Not to say "jokes" like this one should be banned just that people shouldn't really be surprised if other people don't find them as intrinsically funny as they do.

She saved thousands without sacrificing a single life and Teddi is cold, but by all means let’s cast her out for this little bit of opportunism 8-|

It appears, from their respective eyes (vacant stares), that the two Teddy/Teddi's are in some kind of trance. The psychic link could just be temporary. Does Charity's halo driven divine shield extend to Teddi? Is Teddy on the path to demi-godhood with Teddi being left behind? Are they both developing into super beings? Could our newly hatched twins jointly deflower Chloe? Much yet to be determined.

If it was only a one off "little bit of opportunism" that would be one thing. But as well as the things Dragon Paladin mentioned we've seen her torturing prisoners and regularly displaying lust and jealousy. Charity's has hardly ever been shown doing anything "angelic" so she really doesn't have that far to fall.

So you can believe the entire city (excluding Teddy and Co.) failing to notice all sorts of supernatural phenomena taking place out in the open , but not this? :-\
Yes. There’s a perfectly logical reason for all that.

Susceptible to all of the seven deadly sins, but risks her neck to do the right thing when something important, like saving thousands of lives, is on the line? Sounds like she's becoming dangerously mortal in the terms of this comic.

Torturing demons is an exception to this rule and why not? Demons are banished to a realm of eternal torment by the Almighty so as long as the tortured is a demon it’s legal.

I've had this personal theory that there was some kind of space/time screw up that caused Charity to become Lucretia after being led into carnal temptation by Pandora (seriously; aside from the hairstyle, Lucretia and Charity could be sisters - they look so much alike).
Please, don't come to me expecting me to fix your problems.

An ongoing "joke" in this strip appears to be that the angels are generally sexually repressed, so this is nothing new.
