Wonder Twin Powers Activate!

The other day, as I was trying to gently encourage my darling children "to do their homework or face my wrath" and no they can't work together because they seem to have "working together" and "copying each others answers" confused as concepts, one young lady looked at me pleadingly and said, "But, I'm good at English and he's good at History." Before I could reply, without missing a beat, her "study buddy" (who's Ritalin seemed to be all done for the day) proceeded to leap onto his chair and pronounce, "AND TOGETHER, WE'RE AN UNSTOPPABLE FORCE!", finger pointed to the sky.
"Even 'Unstoppable Forces' need to learn to work independently. Wonder Twin powers activate".

Which reminds me, the only time the Wonder Twins have ever looked even remotely menacing was when they were illustrated by Alex Ross:



In that picture, those crazy kids look like they might actually cut you or something. You know, instead of turn into a puddle of purple water and a My Pretty Pony. And Gleek there, he looks like the lab monkey who created Patient Zero in "28 Days Later".

In any case, they probably aren't copying each other's homework answers.

I dunno. It's hard to distinguish Zan from Jana in that picture. And yet I find them both alluring. This distresses me.
