It's official. North Star is a teenager!

Here's a fun fact. Wolves reach sexual maturity at 2-3 years of age.

But let's take a moment and look at this from a psychological perspective. Little is known about Poncho's family ties. As far as we know we have never seen anyone who is biologically related to Poncho aside from Jack. It is entirely possible that Gale served as a type of mother figure that filled the void where his own mother was not. Combine that with the trauma of his injuries and his mind might have been affected in a way that only became apparent once Poncho actively sought a mate. In summary, Poncho really needs to find himself a girlfriend. North Star on the other hand is going through puberty. From what we've seen the only female contact any of the cubs ever had were with members of their own family. Having such a, umm, close contact with Gale triggered hormonal changes taking place in his body. You can look at it from a Freudian perspective but I would not recommend it.

I've been doing research on Childhood trauma and I found that the cubs could develop Acute Stress Disorder. "If an adolescent has been exposed to a traumatic event that involves threat of death, serious injury, or violation of physical integrity involving him- or himself or others, associated with feelings of fear, helplessness. or horror, the following symptoms, beginning with four weeks of the traumatic event and lasting no longer than four weeks are signs of acute stress disorder."
Even though this is a comic it never hurts to learn something new.

Probably later in the HP!verse because they also live longer.

Now is the time for Miles and Lucretia to show up. I think Lucretia could hold her own with Gale.

Did we ever get confirmation on what Pueblo's gender is? Also, is North Star intentionally sticking his tongue out at pueblo or is that just a result of him being strangled?

Technically no but he's clearly a boy. The tongue is a result of strangling and I want to say hormones.

I can't tell if this is less weird or a lot weirder if you consider the pups' idea of quality time is getting headlocked by their mom.

So...Freud was right?

It really isn't wierd, guys; if you see your mother as a good parent, it's normal to look for someone with similar traits when selecting a partner. Also, Freud is bunk.

"Eew" is kind of a standard reaction for pre-adolescent males to romantic ickyness. As North Star demonstrates, that attitude changes with the on-set of teen-age. Poor Pueblo ... and Poncho's not dead, either.

The dorkiness of the wolves when they encounter Gale makes me think they really would've been indistinguishable with any normal pet at this point =3

you know it seems hilarious that no one can tell the difference between North Star and Poncho especially considering the continuity of this story arc it was obvious that North Star is the one with a "Broken Brain" Poncho is the one enjoying a headlock a little to much

I think you have that backwards. Poncho has a band of dark fur under his eyes, Northstar's got the light fur extending around the eyes.

Continuity-wise, all those scratches on Poncho are from Gale landing on him.
