"MEPS!" is what Coneheads cry in distress or anger, in the Saturday Night Live sketches and movie.

Ok, she got him on the defensive to the point of him running away, but what is "MEPS?"

It's probably contraction of a portanglish expression, so who knows.  We'll have to wait for a character to explain it. Doesn't sound good though.

Can't remember where I've seen it but I believe that I've seen "meps" used in cartoons as a "oh-sh*t" expression which matches the context of its use here.

Yeah, I'm thinking Diana's going to need to call on the protection of all those other mercenaries Real Soon Now. And she'd better hope that none of them have been bought by the other side.

EDIT: To clear up what I meant by the above, Diana just did some major tree-shaking by upsetting Senhor Conehead here. If he is indeed in on the conspiracy she's investigating, then his response to this is likely to put an even bigger target on her back. Hence, her likely needing more protection.

Well, quick web search comes up with "Military Entrance Processing Station" - this seems unlikely to be what he's referring to.
Also "Medical Expenditure Panel Survey" - also unlikely
"MEP"s is some kind of cabinet position in europe? I think? - Nope.

My guess it's a kind of futurespeak for "no comment"

Dialogue notwithstanding, my first thoughts on seeing Bouissou were actually of Zippy the Pinhead.

Yow!

page=1930 panel 4

Jacques Bouissou's conehead speakage is a direct homage to the original Saturday Night Live Coneheads.


Does anyone recognize the camo field for the flyer in panel 1? It's not a close match to the Jetson flyer.

The red woman is a nice counterpoint to a couple of green girls that have worked for the Fantastic 4. There a tinman that resembles Colossus. The long hair biker dude looks like someone I should be familiar with, but I'm not making a connection.

Quantum Vibe / Baxter Building Superheros?

I'm not up on my superhero mythos, if there's anything here, would someone please bump the homage thread?

I suspect we don't have any explicit homages, just a nod to generic superheros in general.
