Author Notes:

Originally his office was going to be very bland. .. That idea didn't sit right by me for two reasons. Harb's office looked standard for one. Two, given how out there RAGE is I figure it's leader has to have his space exotic looking. Also originally that desk woman, now Ms. Grant didn't have a name. Knowing she had to be given one for this, I did my normal joking around. Not meant as insulting but simply to play with again how RAGE represents it's self. Back on page 159 if you read the note in front of her on her desk ( turned upside down ) I wrote what could look like a spell ( made up ). Grant is the name of an author who publishes under Llewellyn Worldwide.

A further note: That brass shrine by the fruit is again made up. I only realized after drawing it unless you looked at it closely, only then you'd realize it's not representing something real.

I wonder what the age limit is for HAPPY...

The middle panel is an exceptional piece. It gives the feeling that the owner is quite happy to have the place!

On another note, will we see Dr. Claw again? i liked your depiction of him!

Thanks it took some planning to figure out! :-)

I haven't made any note of retirement age for people working for the organization. At this point in shown the oldest noted character is Von Slickstein, who I noted in Forge of Hate is either in his 50's or 60's. Penny entering HAPPY is more unofficial than official. They allow her to accompany their staff and also allow Eda to act as a teacher to her. Dirk & Finn are the youngest officially noted employed by HAPPY. But they got in because their parents wanted them in.

Also slightly unsure if you are referring to Kein here being oldest present in this scene. He heads RAGE. His age hasn't been noted but given how I note him in the Gadget Boy stories and a short I plan on writing him in later in comic format, his age becomes clearer. Born 1958 but I'm not sure that will get mentioned.

As for Doctor Claw he's making no further appearances in this story, but he is coming back later. After Iron and Steel is over which is something that will happen faster on DeviantART then here ( still months off on DA ). A bunch of short comic stories are coming out using different characters across this AU. Call it round two of this nature.
Because three people have voiced interest in it his short and I'm not kidding through the eyes of Mad Cat, it will be first produced. You can read these while Iron and steel here is still running. Just don't read the Dr. Spectrum one since it will act as a mild spoiler.

He is also returning in the fifth large prose based story which will be published in all likely hood after the comic shorts have all been posted.

This thread in the IG Unlimited forum relays who's getting the comic shorts:

PS: On the note of kiaraprime. She left I didn't get rid of her. I've never banned anyone but a single person-er-bot that signed up.
