What if.......?
« on: 30 Mar 2018, 10:14 »

What if Tortura is Jim's ex/Sam's mom?  A career like hers would explain why she's not in the family picture.

I don't think that's plausible.

We know that Sam visits her bio-mom regularly. Tortura seems to be on Witness Protection right now; they wouldn't want her keep contact with her family unless they'd been renamed and relocated and the timeline doesn't support that.

Ah!  I missed that.

Not only that, but one of Steve's flashbacks seemed to indicate that Tortura had actually been a foreign operative, and she only became friends with him because he saved her life. Not that being a foreign operative would preclude her from marrying a local man, but in this case it makes it much less likely.

I'd avoid calling anything "less likely" in a strip that includes sentient (albeit somewhat goofy) robots appearing in people's kitchens and trying to eat their cereal boxes.
