I hope Ethan has the sense to ask how far Scott wants to take it. Ask Scott directly if they should just be killing anyone they think is a threat. Highlight the result of the path of pre-crime murder; the pain and suffering you will cause people’s families when you kill them because you think they could be a threat. Show Scott what a miserable world is created through such logic.

I do still hold out hope that Scott doesn’t become a villain. i like the dynamic they got now of being allies who just butt heads every so often. Plus the idea of taking two enemies and making them friends in a new incarnation has always facinated me. Would love to see some Zelda game where the latest incarnations Link, Zelda, And Ganondorf are all friends and fighting side by side for example.

Scott can see the source of the irrational parts of his position. To me, that means he’s still far from “the dark side.” Those who’ve actually crossed into that territory, can be distinguished because they don’t see their personal experiences, beliefs and opinions as such anymore. They see them as absolute laws that can be used to perfectly judge everything and everyone, and as the ultimate argument for taking it upon themselves to be judge, jury and executioner. They act like there’s this one truth, and they own it, and it gives them the holy duty to trample over anyone… Read more »

He may still be faintly aware of his position, But he’s crossed the line. He’s taken that first step- And a big one at that.

He’s just taken that first step over the line, yes; But he’s already done it.

I get your point, and I see how both yours and mine can coexist as they’re both valid.

I see an irony, here. Every last thing you said about Scott, to condemn his behavior… Applies to ZK, as well.

If you see ZK’s potential to change, in the fact he’s not too far gone… By the same logic, you’ve gotta see the same in Scott.

The line…. is a line. It is not a one-way force field that prevents you from stepping back over it again. My point is that Scott may have judged, jury’d and executed, but he is even right now reflecting and exploring from that single experience the consequences and morality of his actions, even as he is talking about his “justified” viewpoint. It is very much still possible he may find his way back. He’d have to live with the one time he stepped over, and he likely have an eternal enemy now, but circumstances are still not too far gone… Read more »

Scott has killed. He will kill again.
He is off the deep end already, and these are just excuses to justify what he deep down knows is wrong.

Because what if Zeke evolved, and saved lives instead? Those won’t be saved now. Scott is full of shit, because he only answers the questions that soothe his guilt.

Scott is a murderer. Period.

What defines murder? A human being? A sapient being? Zeke was showing signs of sapience, being equal in all other regards to humanity. The only difference being that his being wasn’t biological. People are after all, just biological and chemical robots with poorly understood code.

People have used similar excuses for atrocities throughout history. Because to them, their victims weren’t people or human, so it wasn’t murder.

I don’t agree with your entire statement, but you do bring up a very good point that people claiming Scott crossed a line are missing. Zeke is not a human. Whatever existence is there is undefined in the world. Obviously Ethan has his own beliefs on the matter, but so does Scott. As readers, it’s easy to bias ourselves towards the more hopeful interpretation, but if we were really stuck in the situation without the higher narrative viewpoint being cynical about it isn’t unreasonable.

I think this arc was created because Tim was tired of the folks that felt one side of the other was 100% right. They are both right, and both wrong. Hopefully they end up working together to openly resolve both of their concerns. First step for both is finding Zeke, they can build on that.

Scott’s ideas are right but he took things too far in achieving them. Scott went even further in being wrong when he lied to both Ethan and Lucas and decided the bomb should remain in Zeke unilaterally.

Lucas was wrong to lie to Ethan but he didn’t decide this alone, he decided it with Scott and they had the majority over Ethan in that decision. When Scott did that, both Lucas and Ethan wanted the bomb removed from Zeke.

The only reason Zeke hasn’t (permanently) killed, is because Ethan can’t stay dead and Lucas got lucky.

I beliebe that actions and intentions should be judged independently of outcomes. Zeke tried his hardest to become a murderer. He just didn’t succeed.

If you don:t believe it, read the comics from December 2017.

Scott and Zeke are at least in the same boat. Both have attempted and not succeeded to murder someone.

Can’t condemn one without condemning the other.

Scott might come out on top of this comparison though, because his attempted murder was against someone who attempted murder multiple times before and frequently threatened to do so again.

The actions of Zeke are irrelevant to the moral choices that Scott made. It’s not up to him to be judge, jury and executioner, it’s nither his right nor his position for any of those. You are defending a murderer, whose justifications are that he killed because he THOUGHT it was the right thing to do, simply because the person that he killed did something horrible as well. That’s never a justification, never a morally right choice to make. I am honestly appalled at all the people who would defend this, and extremely glad that in most developed societies in… Read more »

We’re all staying on topic, the connection between Scott and ZK is definitely there, and no one is denying Scott has made some mistakes and is partially to blame here.

Trying to nuance the justifications of a murderer by bringing up whatever somebody else did is a whataboutism, exactly by your definition. It is also irrelevant, because what Zeke did does not matter for Scott’s morally bankrupt choices.Zeke is just a coincidental scapegoat he is projecting his own trauma on, and he would have done it regardless of Zeke’s actions. And exactly; Zeke’s actiuons warrant a legal sentence. Not a vigilante taking justice into his own hands, justifying his MURDEROUS INTENT by covering it up with emotional arguments that come down to “if only someone stopped them before!”.

It says a LOT that Scott is self-aware enough how deep down the rabbit hole he’s in and how he wishes no one else is there with him. He knows his way of thinking is flawed, but he also feels it’s the right one. The more Scott talks, the more I see his Red Hood to Ethan’s Batman: Family who cares about each other but a core justice value keeps it strained. He’ll come around on Zeke, I’m sure….just not anytime soon. I don’t think he’d change his mind even if it showed Zeke making a selfless sacrifice situation to… Read more »

Comic sidenote: Red Hood recently gave up the guns because (to paraphrase), while he believes that there are bad people out there and that they still need to die, death has a way of radiating outward to affect other people. As such, Jason is trying to figure out a new way. Relating to this comic, this goes back to where Ethan is talking about how he knows the Sun Devils were bad people but that doesn’t stop them from being someone’s beloved friend/family member. As for Scott, I was wrong. He does see Ethan’s perspective. He is even admitting to… Read more »

A relationship requires empathy on both sides. Scott isn’t showing any empathy towards Ethan, isn’t making any effort to understand him and that’s a bad sign. Making traumas into measuring contests will sour any relationship and yet Scott doesn’t care. Now if they really want to end it all they should play Monopoly, that will do it.

He’s making a lot of assumptions about where Ethan is getting his “hope” from… without asking Ethan where he thinks it comes from. I’ve been there myself; not wanting to know anyone else’s answers, insisting you already have them, even though you freely admit that the ones you have are insufficient.

When you stop asking questions and start making assumptions… you’re in trouble.

Reason? What he is doing is not demonstrating reason. He’s willing to kill based solely on his decision of who or what is or is not a threat. That’s not reasonable.

And he has already tried to kill a sentient being. Fuck being in a “dark place”. Scott has already crossed the line and shown he’s willing to kill.

I really like the discussion about how the same tragedy affected 2 directly involved people with different results. Ethan’s sister death made Scott less sensitive to mankind’s flaws while making Ethan more human and trying to understand the whole human context, despite the individuals choices. They were emotionally hit differently, but how to compare the loss of a beloved wife with the loss of a beloved sister? The wife is our companion, the one we cherish and share everything about our lives… and a sister, someone we grew up with, that was there for us and vice-versa… Also, both had… Read more »

There is one critical difference between Scott and DeathBlood (as far as we know). Deathblood targets known criminals engaged in criminal activity. Scott talks about preventing something from happening in the future, which means possibly prejudging someone who may not have even done anything yet.

If Scott really feels this way, he might as well kill Lucas and Ethan. Ethan nearly got someone killed (unintentionally), and Lucas’s arrows are deadly if his aim is off.

Scott has to stop living in the past or he’s going to be the one killing people.

I don’t – Zeke constantly talks about how they want to kill everyone. Constantly. In the past, sure, the Master was controlling their actions, but they represented themselves as being absolutely delighted at the opportunity to kill Ethan and Lucas. I could be wrong, but I don’t remember them ever expressing any remorse over that whatsoever. If somebody immediately finds a strip where Zeke said “I feel bad about putting Lucas in the hospital”, okay, then I’m wrong. I don’t agree with Scott here, but I do think everyone acting like Scott is purely prejudging Zeke, including Ethan, is choosing… Read more »

Either because the Master wrote it into their code, or verbally indicated that wasn’t allowed. However, since being out of the Master’s control, Zeke has many times expressed their “mission” or whatever to end human life, yet they’ve never even tried to act on it. Not even once. They never left the store to go on a mad killing spree. In fact, never even… Read more »

The whole arc where Ethan talks about how death hurts every time and Zeke goes “I’m sorry, that must be scary” was a very big point for me, and if you’re doing a track record it’s pretty shortsighted to ignore the tiny length of that track record, as Zeke is maybe one year old?

Name one time a US politician has been affected by real life enough to make a concerted effort to change it.

Only dubious example I can think of in recent history is Trump. For good or ill he really did try to make a change in how life and politics in this country works. Blew up in his face as the system fought back but he tried. All the rest talk a big game about change when they face a tough election/reelection but all are just another cog in the same corrupt machine once their position is secured.

Here’s the thing, Scott, isn’t wrong per say. Stopping a threat before it can inflict harm is a positive thing. However, he’s missing the hope/potential part. Yes, Zeke is a “threat” but he’s also a chance for good, and to deny chance is where he failed. The dark inside him blinds him to that.

ARE they a threat though? Zeke’s never actually done anything threatening to humanity short of “grand plans” spoken to Ethan and Lucas basically. Even when they thought they had no physical limitation of space, when Scott enabled motor functions, they still chose to stay in the storage room of the shop, setting up their own sovereign kingdom. I’d say that’s a point in favour of not being so much of a threat.

I would say it is still highly debatable. Zeke never left because of their own insecurity and never caused harm but CONSTANTLY threatened people. While thats fine and jokey its also very disturbing behavior. I am not saying “What if Zeke attacked?” Im saying “Zeke constantly threatens people with serious violence” and while those threats eventually ring hollow its not ok.

After all, ZK is dangerous because he’s shown a keen interest in hurting/killing humans out of prejudice. Scott did take a step forward, in hurting ZK. But ZK has taken that step as well, by hurt at least one person (Lucas). And they both did it in a treacherous manner. I know I’m oversimplifying, in a way. But it’s there.

This is a big crux to this situation. Zeke has never caused serious harm to anyone, not while under their own control, but they are highly capable. Couple with that how casually they threaten violence and death on people and there would be serious cauae for concern even if Zeke WASNT a robot. Im not saying “what if zeke attacked?” Like its inevitable, im saying “zeke makes constant threats about his very serious intent to do harm to people in general”.

Scott isn’t too far gone, he’s felt in a small way, the ramifications of the path he’s taken. If he continues he’ll lose friends, respect, and the legality of his actions will lead to if not villainy and/or prison time. Many bad cops go down the same path because they get tired of dealing with a weak system that lets true criminals go free and stick the self-helper in prison. They use the same logic to do some truly awful things. Planting evidence just because they think “they deserve it” or make deals with shady people to catch another. In… Read more »

I’m really loving this chapter. Panels 1 and 2 are especially great. Ethan pouring more whiskey for Scott shows that he’s listening to what Scott has to say, even if he will not ultimately agree. In other words, in that moment it it appears that Ethan isn’t merely reacting out of emotion. He has at least calm down enough to pour his brother a little whiskey.
