Shaenon: I’m going to come out and say it: I have no idea why Mirror Sweetheart has an eyepatch.  It suits her strangely well.

Channing: I can help!  In an excised strip that I never actually submitted to Shaenon, Mirror Sweetheart explains that she wears an eyepatch in case there is an unexpected nuclear blast, so that she can retain sight in at least one eye.  When Sergio points out that she probably has more control over the world’s remaining nuclear weapons than the average person, she responds by laughing uncontrollably, implying that nuclear blasts may still be unexpected even when she’s in full “control” of them.
