The entity sounds like our old friend Jim the Raccoon in non corporeal form.
We’re getting more pieces of the puzzle, at least.
I believe Wally is strong-willed enough, has a strong enough sense of self, of who he is, to resist being taken over by a non-corporeal entity. Especially now that he’s been warned with a little info of what “I” is. Forewarned is forearmed.
Well at least with Wally as the conduit Chic and Kirbee are safer away than being with him. What our doctor does not know……it got into their complex. She only knows the gate is down but not the reason why. Curiously she just said they used anthro “test” subjects?? Exposed them to this horror just to study the effects? Interesting…
Another point it showed as a face…….the Queen’s and Fitzgerald mainframes did the same thing……formed a face…..and they are ditto manifestations.
The Great I AM.
Didn’t Wally see Jim um, “manifest”? Will he put two and 2 together?
Wally will never want to go to sleep again!
Wally:“Ok, this isn’t getting me anywhere. Let’s go back to vague hints and roundabout innuendo, and pretend like I didn’t ask for details. Anyway, how ’bout them Saints?”
Such a claim would have to be thoroughly vetted.
