Wrong place, wrong time
For the record, no the Zoomer isn't breathing water. As seen in Metroid 1, they can walk under lava without any of the acid without a problem. Think of them like dolphins... able to hold their breath for a long, long, long time. This applies to most (note: I say most) enemies.

-Ech... don't like where this is headed.
Metroid, Samus, Kraid, and the rest of 'em are all property of Nintendo, who to my knowledge wouldn't do anything such as sue me or shut poor Planet Zebeth down, because they're so damn nice, and Metroid kicks ass : }
This particular comic strip was made solely by me, by that happy little program known as KolourPaint. Yes, the one that everyone runs in fear from. That's why the comic looks the way it does.
