I wasn't originally planning to use a whole strip to inroduce Papa Brain, but this way let me expose a bit more of his personality. I might as well note that the idea for Papa Brain originally came from a member on the Metroid Online message boards by the same name.
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.
