More Halo? Ok, you asked for it.I'm the Batman and I'll say how old she is. Halo: Ward in the making.
Bruce Wayne walks in with a superpowered Jane Doe. Another one for your scrapbook of clues. We'll blow that cover yet. If asked, the doctor'll probably just say "Bruce Wayne, Batman? Maybe, maybe not! There's just so much you can tell with a stethoscope."
In retrospect, maybe a general practitioner wasn't the best person to bring an amnesia case to.
Oh well, if he knows hypnosis, we're all set. "Please, doctor, I noticed the legs too, but we just established she was only 16."
Time to start a new list... Things Halo remembers: How to play the piano.
But we have to keep our old list going... Things Halo's forgotten: How she known how to play the piano, and the moral implications of playing the piano.
Oh Halo, you just DID hear it. We have to repeat everything with that girl.
"Jane Doe" is just an expression, but you can't blame her for taking a cue from Geo-Force, the namer of all things nameable.
Things Halo remembers (subconsciously): The expression "Plain Jane".
Gus the lorry driver is obviously mystified by this exchange. He can't decide which Mike Barr pun is more appropriate to the character: Gabrielle like the shining angel, or Gabby because she can't shut up. He's my favorite character in the book as yet.
As for Batman, he's the guy who'll tell you what your kid will be called in the schoolyard while you try to pick a name. And yet, never said a word when Geo-Force picked "Outsiders"... or "Geo-Force", for that matter.
I've never heard the nickname "GAY-bee" outside certain... uhm... circles.
Oh Bruce, putting the moves on a minor? Is your playboy image more important than common decency? Be here tomorrow for your answer when it goes all Pretty Woman on our asses.
