    Cast out Outcast and willing to fight! Good, it is her only hope.

    Well, why not? What’s she got left to lose, after all?

    That’s already a given. As mentioned a couple of days ago, her only 2 options are to fight and turn into dust, or voluntarily surrender and get harvested. In this case, fighting and losing may be the easier way out. We already know that she’s a lousy fighter as a human, having been defeated by a mouse and a cat. Up against 50+ humans shooting from a distance?…

    One more time, just to maintain visibility – Aaron is building up medical bills and needs our help with them. Suggestions for assistance include commissioning large pieces of art from him, making a donation from the Endtown Underground, nominating Endtown for the Ursa Majors, buying the $2.50 mini-comic directly from Aaron, and telling your friends and family to come here and read Endtown. You can also vote daily for Endtown on TopWebComics.

    The cat and the mouse living in his head will thank you.

    I think we are making a huge leap if we assume there are any “trained fighters” out there. Remember, we are talkng about a post-apocalypitc remnant on both sides. Just because topsiders look like they are wearing uniforms and carry weapons does not make them soldiers. I would argue that in this sort of post war scenario there are probably very few trained military that survived. There are no obvious soldiers in Endtown, why should the TS’s be any different. Quite honestly, most TS’s we have seen strike me more like scientist types than military. Flask carries the title of Captain, but that is because of her position as head of Endtown security. Her behavior under fire more than anything points to the fact that she’s certainly no soldier. They are surrounded, but by a mob of civilians who, quite frankly, are not used to being seriously opposed for the most part.

    A new mutant is joining the ex-men? Marvelous!

    Well, the first question to ask is, “Where were those humans at the time of The End” such that they were untouched by the mutagen?" The three obvious answers would be – “in a clean room” (making them technicians, engineers or cleaning staff), “in a bank vault” (making them bankers, customers or security guards) and “in bomb shelters” (making them military, or Idaho-bred survivalists). Idaho survivalists could make really good fighters, assuming they were willing to live in the colonies with everyone else they’d been trying to get away from. Bankers…? Not so much.

    I take Flask is still in shock?

    If you think back to the Sparkplug story, the mutagen outbreak wasn’t instantaneous. There was a period of time where they attempted to deal with the problem (through the screening centers, etc) It would make sense that the biosuit technology was developed at that time for the personnel who were operating those centers or for the researchers attempting to isolate and study the mutagen itself. It could be that many of the TS are former Apex employees. A society with a high percentage of scientists and engineers would certainly explain the significant technology advantage they enjoy. It would stand to reason that some military personnel survived, but as with the rest of civilization, probably not as an organized unit. It’s just that given what Aaron has shown us of the TS personnel to date, I haven’t seen anything to make me think they are particularly skilled in combat operations. They strike me more like what most people would associate with members of a posse from the old west days.

    I think I’ve found a human Flask

    Is she or is she not?

    @DadOf3 and TSOJ – very interesting comments. I wonder how much of this analysis was done by Aaron when he wrote the story?

    That’s the neat part. The anwer is “Only Aaron knows for sure.” Aaron is the creator of this world and it conforms to his idea of it. The rest of us can speculate till we are blue in the face yet we may never come close to the actual vision except by sheer luck or coincidence. TSOJ has had more direct dealings with Aaron than I have and may have better insight into his though processes. For me, at this point, the speculation on unknown details is mostly a mechanism to deal with the stress of waiting for the next page to turn!

    Please untie me
    Please untie me, let me go
    I’m no Topsider anymore
    To waste our brains would be a sin
    So untie me, and let me fight again

    I have found a new command
    And I now want to lend a hand
    We’ll pay the price when we are sold
    But this way, we’ll die, not be controlled

    Please untie me, can’t you see
    Your side could use someone like me
    To wait and die would cost my brain
    So release me, and let me fight again

    So release me, and let me fight again
