Re: Gunnerkrigg Court 3: Mystery Solved!
The phrasing here is significant, though. It is not that she made an assertion that she can take Annie. It is that she said that Coyote knows that. And Coyote did not challenge the statement, which you would expect from an egotist of his caliber, especially when his powers are being questioned. Instead what he said can be seen as attempt to defuse the situation.

She is not exactly a type of person that is given to bluffs and empty threats.
