I really love Short Stack! She has such a great take on things! "Muttstache" had me rolling! :) Her reaction to watching the others spar with Storm Shadow, and then adding to her list of the most dangerous things you hear in the military - “A ninja saying 'Hi.'" Priceless! :) Keep up the great work!

Issue 82 all Joe potentials already had their codenames assigned to them.

I love how you show Storm Shadow, I think there will be many more... interesting hand-to-hand sessions to come XD
Hopefully we will find out what actually happened when it was poor ShortStack's turn?
This chapter was definitely worth the wait! Brilliant!

Good chapter, but you didn't show Short Stack's turn or Shadow's insults to her attempts.

Awesome chapter. I especially enjoyed the "pain is educational" bit XD Gotta love clueless greenshirts.

Oh, lord. This brought back many happy memories. I love love LOVE watching new students spar with the upper belts during sizing up. They ALWAYS try to nut-kick after they start getting desperate. My fiance'(Who is, by the way, just below our Sensei in the command structure of my class) actually got some pretty good hang time out of a kid last week. Kid deserved it, though; he was being a smartass and talked back to an upper belt. BIG no-no in a Dojo.
And Storm is right. Pain is educational. I learned a lOT the first time I walked onto the mats with my Sensei. Yes. I tried a groin strike. No, I could not walk for about twenty minutes. Yes, I still wince painfully at that memory.
I think Storm Shadow might be enjoying putting the fear of God into the fresh meat just a little bit. "grins"
And thanks. I'm not going to be able to get that phrase out of my head all day either.

Great chapter! If I were Annie, I would make sure to be in Scarlett's group next time. ;)

Congrats on getting your bros to 'fess up for 'research' purposes! Nothing like firsthand info to make life more fun.
Nut a ninja...I nearly lost my chicken then...That is a great line.
Also, the newbies being not so great at hand-to-hand? Excellent. I get so tired of characters who can 'best' a ninja, much less Scarlett. Keeping it real in the Joe-verse!

This is such a fun story, and you have such talant at writing hysterical turns of phrase. According to the comic in general, greenshirts are sometimes given joke nicknames until they make Joe status. So you got it pretty much correct. Some names are more normal, some are derogatory according to stupid stuff they've done.. so you get a mix. Well done!
I'm good with any bacon, so whatever bacon the ninja's don't want, I'll eat. I'd ALMOST sneak bacon off their plate, but I do actually have uses for my fingers, so probably not.
I love your snarky StormShadow, and he does come off as a very GOOD instructor.
I cannot wait for more! Great work!

Once again, you've started a well-written story with excellent characterizations. Although they've been minor characters so far, all the established Joes are portrayed in an accurate manner. The OCs are very well done. You've established them and given them unique personalities without bogging the story down in needless details.

Heck yeah! I like this. I want more, since you've got a great character *original!* going here. She rocks with her outsider view of the Joes. Bring. It. On.
