Panel 1: In the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, we see Barbara nudging up into the panel to look sidelong at Casey, who is pondering an equation (apparently, "West of Bathurst divided by Kari Maaren").

Panel 2: Marie, Casey, the new female Junior Fellow with the long brown hair in a ponytail, and Barbara are sitting on a couch and, in Marie's case, a chair in the Davies College common room. Casey and Barbara are reading newspapers, while Marie writes in a notebook. Behind them, we can see a thematically appropriate painting of the fall of Icarus.

Marie: Casey, what's seventy-three percent of eighteen?

Casey: Thirteen point one four.

Marie: Thanks.

Panel 3:

Woman
[to Casey]: But you're in English.

Barbara: He can do math in his head. It's one of his Satanic powers.

Panel 4: Casey rolls his eyes.

Woman:
Okay.

Barbara: He has plenty: math skills, musical genius, pyrokinesis, mind-reading, shape-shifting, teleportation--

Panel 5:

Casey: How many times do I have to tell you people that I cannot do pyrokinesis?

Panel 6: Everyone stares at Casey.

Panel 7:

Casey: Or several of those other things either?

Woman [points]: Yeah, okay...I'm gonna go sit over there now.

Alt-Text: If he goes on to say, "I mean, I wouldn't say I had musical *genius*," someone should probably just hit him.
