Power Pack #37
Issue(s): Power Pack #37
This issue begins a story that will get interrupted by another fill-in next issue. But it introduces the character Rebecca Littlehale, who is a new mutant (as the cover says: This Issue: Meet A New Mutant!" And no, we don't mean a New Mutant). And her power kinda sucks - she automatically teleports to the brightest thing she can see. She's taken to wearing sunglasses but some bullies at school knock them off...
...and she winds up teleporting around until she's attracted to Power Pack, who were playing with a flashlight while testing out a new signal light.
She accidentally teleports away again and winds up in a bright television studio, where someone called her parents and where she might have been safe...
...but Power Pack decide to sneak out of their apartment in the middle of the night again and "rescue" her by having Alex power up and stand outside the studio window. At least they leave a note this time, although their parents don't wake up to see it.
They do manage to subsequently bring her home, although she now knows about the Power Pack kids, if not their secret identities.
On top of that, they are getting threatening calls from someone saying that he knows who they really are.
And the debate about telling their parents about their powers continues.

Quality Rating: C
Chronological Placement Considerations: This issue compounds the problems with Power Pack #35 and #36 (see the relevant entries, but shortly: The Thing is shown unmutated in #36 even though #35 is a Fall of the Mutants tie-in and the Thing was mutated by FotM, and i've therefore swapped the order of those two issues) but referring to the events of issue #36 has having happened "yesterday" while also referencing the events of Fall of the Mutants. What to do about it? Right now i'm opting for "willfully ignore it". Basically i'm pretending that the announcer who said "yesterday" actually made a slip of the tongue.
Continuity Insert? N
