For help on how to follow a comic title,
Honestly, I’m not very excited about this story arc. I enjoy the crazy adventures with ray guns and mutants and bizarre physics. Another courtroom drama just doesn’t interest me as much.
Wow. That speech is hitting a lot of psychological levers. Everything from “You’re just doing your job” to “Everybody else is doing it” to “It’s for their own good”, all nicely wrapped up and presented almost reasonably. What’s more worrying is that it sorta mirrors the speech from the guys at the bar…
Maybe Petey’s actions were out of gratitude, rather than love?
If so, we’ve got the same disease. Given all the Topsiders do, it’s hard to be sympathetic.
I get the feeling the next page is going to have some red in it. Lots and lots of red…
… are we sure it’s a good thing the Topsiders didn’t get blown up? Because right now, I’m seeing Flask as less of a villain and more of a Byronic Hero – and perhaps a necessary one.
I’m still with Flask, oddly enough. The Topsiders were attempting genocide of all mutants, and Flask didn’t exactly have a lot in the way of resources. If it wasn’t for the Aaron-Ex-Machina, all of Endtown would be getting de-brained and stuffed into mutts about now. My one problem is that her motives seemed less ‘save Endtown’ and more ‘personal vendetta’.
This whole thing is still a bit too Dues Ex Machina for my tastes. I was enjoying the whole ethical dilemma between Flask and Wally… and I’m still not convinced Flask was wrong.
Oh God! Why did I ask for angry bees!?
Yah! The genocidal xenophobes are saved to continue their campaign of extermination against the innocent mutants! Wait…
