What I don't get is, why're they teleporting random creatures and objects onto the field. I mean, first a sperm whale, now this? It seems impractical. Not to mention, weird. :-??

If I had to guess (and I do, because it hasn't been explained at all), the lizards' attack has somehow ripped open holes in time and space, so stuff from wherever and whenever is falling through.

My question is, now that Steph is done giving birth, why hasn't she just gone Moth Queen on the lizards' butts again and finished them off like it was obvious she was about to before?

Given that she needed to be carried to the hatching chambers by another Mothman I am assuming that the stress of giving birth has reduced her powers for a bit

I dunno... The whale was impractical, definitely. But when it comes to fighting giant pyramid death machines, smashing them square in the face with a flying Destroyer seems to be just about the right scale of practical.

Smashing with a flying Destroyer (or something of equal size) solves everything.

Still came in at around 1¼KT of weight empty, and while it may have been tied up at the pier when the group made it "Bloop!", that last panel looked like a moving impact on the whatever it is. Depending on how far out it was when it arrived, 1¼KT could conceivably make for a nasty impact. And the USS Smalley, which was laid down just a week before the Eldridge, displaced a tad over 2KT, which, in ship terms, isn't really a whole lot larger than the Eldridge. Especially when you compare them to the USS Ticonderoga (CV-14) at over 27KT. Which, by today's standard for carriers (100KT+), almost qualifies that one for Small-Boy status.

Also one can assume her powers have some range/direction limitations. If she could really just zap all the enemies at once then the fight would have ended immediately.
