Self Maintenance

Ace: I know having a prosthetic limb may seem cool and all, kids (I mean you're not wrong), but remember they need to be routinely maintained. Dirt, grease, fur and food particulate builds up inside the components, and if you don't clean it out thoroughly at least once a week it can interfere with and damage the hardware. In addition, wear and tear means parts have to be replaced quite often, so us cyborgs always need a personal tool kit on hand...especially for those of us who like to do crazy things with our bionics, like crush ceramic mugs, punch through glass, rip through wood, cloth and even metal with built-in "Wolverine claws," fire grappling hooks from them like Batman or even catch bullets in mid flight with it...none of which you should try at home, by the way.

Thanks to franchises like Star Wars, The Terminator and Robocop, I've always had a fascination with bionics, and for a long time I've wanted to either write or draw a scene of Ace "maintaining" his prosthetic paw, as one would naturally need to be.
