This scene became very difficult at this point because of the Texaco station's destruction. I had to do some geometry editing and the model really did not permit the kinds of polygon deletions I needed. I did a lot of fudging and playing with camera angles to get this to look even close to what I wanted (and to be honest, it's not all that close).

The wreckage is not the problem. Breaking the existing building was. And since it is low-poly I didn't have a lot of break points I could use.

This reminds me of this scene:

I think if you zoomed out in the third frame to show the pre-destroyed station, then what is happening would be more clear. It isn't obvious what he is landing on, from this page alone.

From this page alone, no. The old Texaco station is visible on the previous page in panels 2 and 3.

Daystar? Isn't that the company the mayor own or something like that?

Yes, in issue 3, Abby states that Councilman Kludge is the CEO of Daystar. Kludge is also the person who hired Homewrecker to trash Kelly's Grill and Lee's Asian Grocery.

In other news, I just recently watched the first six episodes of the new series "The Tick" on Amazon.

It's lame, campy, and at the same time, absolutely brilliant. The portrayal of the evil "The Terror" is well done and clever, while his henchwoman "Lint" is hilarious, especially all the embarrassing stuff that happens to her.

Is she going to use that trailer as a hammer, or as a crowbar? xD

And here's were strong-but-normal-sized supers run into trouble: real world physics. She's now asking the trailer to be supported by the two small contact points (relative to the trailer) that is her hands. Most large objects would break in half if you asked all it's weight to be supported at the center of gravity. However, superhero physics. :-)

That being said: 1) she's not "borrowing" as I don't think the trailer is coming back in one piece; and, 2) doesn't she need to unhook the air lines to the breaks, first?

She did unhook it. I just didn't show it.

And if you're going to worry about real world physics you may as well not read a superhero comic.
