So...I drew two characters that I may want to do something with.
They're the Goon Gumpas (named after an Aphex Twin song), two humanoids in superhero outfits that defend the (rather small) denizens of their city. However, this isn't often due to the relatively mundanity of said city and the fact that the "crimes" committed aren't enough to threaten anyone. They've mostly spend their time doing everyday things.
Bradley (the biggest one) uses a power called "Hello Goodbye" (named after a Beatles song). It allows him to attract things with his left hand, and repel things with his right. This only works if the target is in front of his hands while using it.
Stryder uses "Mad Pierrot" (named after a Yellow Magic Orchestra song), which lets him switch the positions of something with another, but only if he's holding something in one of his hands.

andrew joseph minyard's eidetic memory and my thoughts on it:
andrew having eidetic memory is such an unnecessary thing yet it fits him so well ???
I mean, as traumatized as his character is, it's undoubtedly one of the cruelest thing nora has done to any of her characters.
she could have given it to neil instead and explain through different parts of the story his life in the run and all of his identities with great detail, how he never forgets a certain face or technique he can use to defend himself or literally where to find the best oranges in italy.
she could have given it to aaron, a med student who has to remember so many names. I don't even know how people study medicine for fun (jokes, I'm studying to be a veterinarian).
she could have given it to wymack, who must remember by heart every one of his foxes faces, the ones who triumphed in their lives, the ones who survived and the ones who left too early.
she even could have given it to any other fox and make a point about it.
but she decided to give it to andrew and that's a whole different point.
andrew went through many foster homes in his childhood and he didn't stop being abused until his twenties or so. he must remember little details about them that anyone else must have already forgotten at that point.
how he used to play with someone's younger brother until the older sibling kicked him out or the parents moved him aside to make clear he isn't part of them. how someone's father used to make pasta in the kitchen while dancing around and how he wasn't allowed to eat it, but sure it smelled amazing. how a woman's sweater was soft-looking and light blue and how he wasn't given a hug when he needed it by that woman, but instead a new bruise.
the list can go on and on, and andrew must remember every little detail considering he's pretty observant.
but andrew can also remember every little detail about neil's skin and how he likes to eat his fruit, about kevin's rants and the way his smile is genuine and feral in the court, about his brother's complaints about his career and the way he looks at katelyn, and about every other fox that was with him and made their way into his family. he can remember bee's advice and soft eyes, he can remember the way wymack plays with his hands when he is nervous and the way he moves them when he's proud, he can remember how sir likes to take the sun in the kitchen and the way king adores taking his bed.
so, while it's pretty cruel considering his past giving him eidetic memory and while not trying to erase how bad it must be for him, it's nice to think he has other stuff to remember too.
(tho it'd have been interesting to see him remembering things by heart because he cares and not because of his memory and observation skills. specially on the court, not because of the game but because as a goalie, he can make everyone's life impossible for the other team).
(to give some context: I'm not sure how his memory in specific works because nora didn't portray everything following a scientific book, so if there's any misinterpretation I apologize).
(in this context I like to think that kandriel is canon because we were truly robbed 😔)
(and I also like to think that andrew does like books as an escape from his reality in the foster homes because it's unrealistic for him not to ??? and that he remembers quotes of poems and specific books that he likes to say out loud sometimes).

My only criticism of the Cat Returns was
Everyone was so mean to Muta >:(
Give him a break!
Muta went through a lot in that movie!
-sat on by Haru (ok this isn't THAT bad but still), who then proceeded to call him Moo-ta
-dropped on his face (poor guy!)
-called fat SO many times in the movie, that stuff's gotta sting :(
-trapped in weed jelly (honestly probably a highlight of the adventure for him, muta was probably on another planet for the rest of the movie)
