Sibling Rivalry in the new order.....

There's another part of the old strip that seems likely to carry into the new-runs: the constant rivalry between MikeClone and NeoLizic. Despite RevElly's best efforts, the children seem like they just won't get along. The despairing reaction of the real strip may give way to denial or stupid aphorisms but RevElly won't get the harmony Real Elly wanted because she doesn't see what the problem is. The original Elly despaired of trying to prove to Michael that just because they had Lizzie didn't mean that they stopped loving him; her smug goof of a clone won't even notice that that might be a problem. Since the boy isn't actively trying to hurt his kid sister, everything's fine so nothing needs to be addressed.
