Let me start by thanking you for your brilliant Flex Mentallo website, and, while I don't know if you're still updating it, I wanted to lend this observation regardless.

#2 Page 13, Panel 5
The screw on the bathroom door is nearly identical to one of the images of Barbelith in The Invisibles. Barbelith is, as far as I can figure, a sentient satellite of the Moon sent by Ultra-terrestrials/evolved humans to help the human race evolve. In Flex, thes would correspond to the Superheroes and their satellite.

But you've probably heard this already.
