So this time I accidentally posted commentary for this
page on last
week's page. As a band-aid fix, I'm just going to post that exact post right here and replace last week's post with.... I don't know, probably something about Stephen Moffat. Anyway:
Some people have commented that the long, sunbeam-like arms appearing out of the clouds on the Chapter 6 cover reminded them of Fullmetal Alchemist. While I have seen that show (a while ago) the intended reference was the ancient Egyptian god Atem
. Prometheus steals the divine fire from the gods. He disrupts the rigid division between what is divine and what is mundane, which makes him a kind of trickster. (It's a bit of mythological mixing, since Prometheus is, of course, a Greek figure.)
And since she is the modern Prometheus, Frankenstein is a kind of trickster as well! Except that arguably she is not a trickster because she makes disrupting-the-natural-order an intentional part of her raison d'etre, whereas a traditional trickster disrupts for the lulz.
