The only reason I’m able to keep making The Young Protectors is because of the very generous support of readers like you on Patreon. And we had a bunch of new folks sign up over the last few days! So, please join me in sending out a very special thank you and welcome to the new members of the Woolfpack this week!

I can easily imagine Cory will make a serious mistake here. Mitch can fly at nearly mach two, which may well be fast enough to evade that eldritch bolt. But Cory may not remember that. Cory might think that he has to move Mitch out of the way telekinetically, and that could ironically prevent Mitch from getting away in time. In other words, the bolt may strike Mitch because Cory acted to save him. Ugh ugh ugh.
Hard to say what the bolt will do to Mitch, but at minimum he’s gonna get knocked out. Cory can at least, in theory, lower Mitch to the ground so he doesn’t suffer falling damage on top of everything else.
And unhappily, the bolt (or another crazie’s magic) will seek out Cory himself next. Maybe he can block some of it with more headstones, but this is not looking good at all. And, we can’t forget there’s still one child tied to a tree, yes? When can we expect the cavalry to arrive? Any chance the last kid has a latent summon-a-swarm-of-bees power to help out here?
