Whee, it's another "a few years later".

So Mauk's now got a moustache and he's called Commander Mauk, the Space Pirates are already using Metroids to suck people dry(the dead bodies were pretty disturbing), Congress Member Keaton is now Chairman Keaton, the girl that Samus saved from the slave camp is now a preteen, Mother Brain tries to assassinate Keaton with a some kind of freaky pirate bioweapon, we learn(at least in Japanese) the name of the Metroid currency and Samus is already a bounty hunter.
Overall, a cool chapter. Can't wait for the next one.

The first creature to come to mind was flaghraa from Metroid Prime...that's what it resembles anyway :P though before the timeline for it. Next chapter is pretty good too. From what I've done so far we may get some background on SR-388....but don't hold me to that

Hmm...I checked it again and I think you're right: That looks an awful lot like Flaaghra. Maybe the two are somehow related?
Am I overthinking it or could Flaaghra be a Chozo creation that Mother Brain could use?

Flaaghra itself wasn't likely a creation meant to 'protect' or do anything specific from what I remember. However, considering the plant had an entire chamber to itself indicates it was somewhat important to the chozo. Maybe something they worshipped or praised highly. I wouldn't think MB would snag something from Tallon IV to throw at the GFP, unless said plant was available on Zebes. Looking at Flaaghra pics too though while it's similar, it's not the same. Manga version had 'prickly' type ends while Flaaghra had sicles on the end.

Sweet, we finally see Samus' daily life as a bounty hunter... well, when she isn't on a major Metroid-stopping mission.

Another cool chapter, and the bounty hunter has finally arrived. "When there be monsters in thy flowers," call the inter-galactic # 7-(738) 867-2726 or S.R.3.8.8.M.s.A.R.A.N. Do not delay! Whether you like it or not, Huntress Pest Control service may finish the job and charge you before you can make the call. z:P

Also, if anyone hasn't mentioned it already, I'd like to officially propose the "Manga Coat Samus in the Next Smash Bros. Campaign." It's now proven that one Manga Coat Samus can take on a whole crowd of brawlers (with no emergency pistol/plasma whip in sight), and still manage to transform and blow away tricked-out monsters in under three seconds. The Zero Suit design can be fine and all, but I think I prefer this stylish, incognito, and classy-looking version of Samus that can walk among everyday people, crash special occasions, track down baddies, and inspire younger generations to be leaders. Manga Coat Samus packs some classic signature heat under that apparel too. :D

I think I'm going to draw Manga Coat Samus now. She's pretty dang cool.

It's really neat to be on the cutting edge of new insight into the Metroid world. Thanks Sharonlover and Snoopycool!! :D :D

Lol! That resemblance crossed my mind too when I first saw the picture, but after that initial impression (an iconic trench coat + hat) I think the image suits Samus quite well though. I wonder if Carmen has a pet like Pyonchi also? In this chapter it seems like Pyonchi has become the pet of the galaxy or something, while Kreatz seems to have disappeared.

Kreatz is still around. He shows up again later and helps Mok save the children from Space Pirates. They both turn out to be badasses. Pyonchi is being taken care of by Old Bird. I guess that little squirrel thing can live for a long time.

Actually Pyonchi moved from being Old Bird's little buddy to being Chairman Keaton's. In the following chapter you'll see him following Keaton.

Interesting. I just kinda glossed over that. I wonder if there's something thematic here, because there was a direct tie between Samus and Pyonchi. However, I'm not going to read too much into it because I'm not convinced this is anything more than a 'cash-in' to get people to buy MZM.
