The wiki pages don't just write themselves, join in on the fun.

Tsk tsk. Looks like someone forgot there are now six Popes scattered around. :-) --Geoduck42 (talk) 05:01, 11 October 2021 (UTC)

If there is only one pope in Rome it is reasonable to say "the pope" when the context is Rome. There are thousands of organizations with presidents, but there's precedent to say "the president" to mean the president of the organization you are presently talking about. You don't have to be prescient to get the meaning from the present context. Argadi (talk) 09:42, 11 October 2021 (UTC)
It's totally not a big deal. Still, it would be interesting to hear where the various popes are headquartered, and which, if any of them, are still in Rome. EDIT: Heh, looking more closely, Ivo and (evidently) Franz make cameos in the scene. --Geoduck42 (talk) 15:19, 11 October 2021 (UTC)
I totally agree. The locations (and reasons) would be interesting -- and probably could be the bases for some side-stories. Argadi (talk) 17:28, 11 October 2021 (UTC)
Any info we have about the Seven Popes' locations comes from the VotC footnote, none of would seem to be in Rome. Zibbiz (talk) 19:38, 11 October 2021 (UTC)
If I had to guess, I'd bet that the Sicilian "Pope of All Popes" has control of Rome. Then again, given their employment of ex-Heterodyne monsters, the Pope Jorbelox worked for may not be one of the seven presently recognized by the Church. PhoenixTalion (talk) 21:10, 11 October 2021 (UTC)
Ooh, maybe the Monster Pope has control of Rome. Zibbiz (talk) 14:49, 12 October 2021 (UTC)
Good spotting, Geoduck42! I assume you think the guy in the red trench coat in panel 1 is Ivo and the dragon's back in panel 8 may belong to Franz. Seems reasonable to me. I have to admit that I didn't think of Ivo when I saw the red coat and I missed the reptilian back completely at first. Thanks for pointing them out! -- 🔧William Ansley (talk) 18:46, 11 October 2021 (UTC)
Additionally, I think that may be a young Carson in panel 4, what with the flat pillbox hat and chain. Zibbiz (talk) 14:46, 12 October 2021 (UTC)
You know, I do believe you're right! More good spotting and something else that I missed, although I did think there was supposed to something significant about the guy in panel 4, given the way he is posed. Thanks! -- 🔧William Ansley (talk) 02:17, 13 October 2021 (UTC)
I'm going way out on a limb and hypothesizing that the woman in panel 4 is Mrs. von Mekkhan, helping Carson to help the escaping monsters. -- 🔧William Ansley (talk) 02:45, 13 October 2021 (UTC)
