This just in: You can grab the life jacket and not actually equip it until youre out of the vessel. Its the new life meta.

There's a well known trope in comics called "women in refrigerators" about how girlfriends of superheroes are often killed or maimed as a plot point for the hero. I say that qualifies.

I can't see what it is. I mean, I know it's Alex but what the **** is it meant to be? Mangled corpse? Dismembered body? Bones? Girl in a bag? **** drawing.
