    so i was rewatching black friday and i was wondering...how does blackarachnias downloading power thingy work? i mean does she take the weapon out/away from the person and she uses it or does she generate it on her own

    I guess she downloads the programs needed to use whatever power she's borrowing and then constructs the parts she needs almost instantly.

    It's a children show. No techno-explanation is given, nor needed. Just imagine that she's a female version of Megaman turned evil and half-organic. That's it.

    It's amazing the doors that open in sci-fi plausability when you incorporate just one word:

    Nanotechnology.

    heh, I was thinking of something very similar, with Rogue (from XMen) in place of Megaman.

    And here is RodimusDawg with your word and Definition of the day.

    The word is : Deus ex machina ( an artificial, or improbable, character, device, or event introduced suddenly in a work of fiction or drama to resolve a situation or untangle a plot.)

    Great when used sparingly, but bad when used to fuel an entire franchise *cOugh cough Matrix Trilogy Cough Hackkkk*

    I believe she derives her power from a rare Cybertronian element called Plotconveniencium.

    Technically, that's a phrase. And thankfully, Sari's Key, the biggest Deus Ex ever, is being kinda phased down.

    Yikes I can't believe I missed that thanks for the correction I'm usually anal about avoiding those types of mistake and what not.


    And yes Sari's Key is the biggest ( but it works) plot saving grace I've ever seen.
