Well, to be very honest I myself believe that Quinton wasn't expecting it, the way it looks it seems more like he turned to re-adjust his sweatshirt and got shot at that point with the tranquilizers. The way the scene looks it kinda does look like he did want it to happen and let it but i'd say it could just be the way it was drawn to keep you guessing.
P.S. it does look from what i see in the scene that he is in fact trying to adjust his sweatshirt to put his hood up and as he is about to do it he gets shot with the tranquilizers.
ARGH! I go through so much pain on suspense moments like these. MUST... HAVE ... MORE... COMICS...
Anyway, I'm thinking that that was a facility sniper. Remember the "general anasthetic"? makes me wonder who the real bad guy is here... Also, is it just me, or is everyone way older here? Quinton's power, i think.
NVM, they're definitely older. I just looked it for the 2nd time now.Yeah, I think Quinton's main power is to change people's age, which (maybe) explains what he did to the facility people. But it doesn't explain Everywhere's "glow"... or his real backround. how do anyone get powers in this world, anyway? baffled.
