There comes a time in every Metroid sprite comic's life where they have to make a Justin Bailey joke. This was my time. For some reason, Samus is taller without her suit on... Strange indeed.
Metroid, Samus Aran, Space Pirates, and all that other stuff are properties of Nintendo. Contra is a property of Konami. All other characters are property of their respective owners. Pretty much everything else is property of me, unless specifically noted otherwise.
