***Ah in that case...I know nothing about that past mini.

> It seems to me that the circumstances are very different. Peter was a fugtive from the law when May got shot. Tigra is a law official. Add to that the fact that she knows exactly who's after her and what their abilites are. I'm not saying her mother would be untouchable (17 dead Sheild agents is nothing to sneeze at!) I'm just saying that if she went to Stark or went public with the blackmail, the Initiative's integrity would be on the line. They'd have to pull out all the stops to make sure both Tigra and her family were kept safe.


***I don't know I mean these guys just finished going right into a secure SHIELD facility and killed 17 agents and freed every last one of their men. I honestly don't think that Tigra wants to risk it because if something happened to her mother because of her actions she prob couldnt live with herself.

This is true, but at the time I don't think Tigra knew just how dangerous The Hood was. Sure, he is part of an organization but when the first assault on her person happened I could not see her just keeping quiet about it, not if her mother were threatened.

> I honestly don't think that Tigra wants to risk it because if something happened to her mother because of her actions she prob couldnt live with herself.

That is a valid point, but it seems that after the first Hood attack she did nothing in regards to protecting her mother else how could the Hood use it as a threat the second time? And if she were shot how did she cover that incident up? If you go to a hospital gunshot wounds are reported, and if she went to SHIELD the same thing would apply, she would have to explain the incident somehow. Especially now that she is part of a huge bureaucracy.

I just think it would have been prudent on her part to hide her mother some place until she dealt with The Hood somehow.
