    Apparently the contract he signed did not specifically read, “No strings attached.”

    I did not see THAT coming! What’s going on!?

    Interesting. I think several of us thought of this possibility but I figured it only had a low to moderate chance of being true. Jackrabbit’s a good speaker, but apparently he’s also a good actor. And I still don’t know – is Jackrabbit’s motive to promote or illegalize the use of mutant byproducts? Hmmm…

    Personally, I think this doesn’t feel like the “right answer” to what’s been going on, but we still don’t know enough about it yet

    This surprised me. Jake has some deaths to account for.

    I expected Velda but not Jake. Still for me, no clue what motive these 2 have, either both have the same motive, or what is happening is good for each from a different starting point.

    Well…I didn’t see that pair coming. Wow…way back when A. Marx zapped them back to Endtown, there was concern in here about the Jackrabbit staging a takeover.

    When we first met Jake he was developing into a Hitler analog. Then we were lulled into acceptance by his defense of the “Milk Three” who we care for. Now we see his true nature surfacing again. Bravo, Mr. Neathery!

    It doesn’t make sense. it was Jake that wanted them to accept their mutant selves, and that is exactly what they have done. And not a clue on Velda.

    What’s going on, if this is to be believed, is that Jackrabbit conspired to have innocents killed for the sake of advancing his vision of an ideal society by making his ideological doppelganger take the rap for it.

    As misplaced as Allgood’s campaign to have authoritative validation on his group’s beliefs was, Jacob’s is no better, if not worse already for having killed over it. In fact, regarding the consumption of mutant products, he seems the type to compel their social consumption on the basis that everyone should be compelled to ‘accept’ their mutation in the same narrow way that he and his followers have.

    Always knew he was a wannabe tinpot dictator. Never thought he was the type that had the cold-blooded nature to follow through with it ‘till now. We’ll see what interesting turns this new development takes.

    And Allgood still has a gun. Unloaded? Or given the same treatment as Flask`s?

    One of the ideas people have been floating around for months is that Jake was behind all this, and the only way for him to pull it off would be if Velda was working for, or with, him. The fact that he wasn’t surprised when an audience member nominated him to defense council, and the fact that he instantly accepted, served to reinforce this idea. We still need to get a motive, but either it’s a takeover bid, or an attempt to cure Endtown of mass schism syndrome.

    Any bets that Allgood’s gun is empty?


    “Conscience is but a word that cowards use,
    Devis’d at first to keep the strong in awe:
    Our strong arms be our conscience, swords our law.
    March on, join bravely, let us to’t pell-mell;
    If not to heaven, then hand in hand to hell.”
    ― William Shakespeare, Richard III

    I find it interesting how the strip has managed to pit two equally wrong-headed and oppositional characters (one apparently now more twisted than the other) against one another, while never forgetting how much alike their original goals are ethically.

    Compelling society to fit your specific vision is dangerous regardless of whose vision it is. It almost always reduces individuals to be rubes and pawns that must be pushed and controlled to, as Mal in Serenity said: “Make people better”.

    The proper rejoinder to that of course, was also given by Mal: “I aims to misbehave”.

    Be that little bit of grit in their sandals that won’t go away.

    I had all my money on Colonel Mustard with the lead pipe in the library.
