I laughed so hard… This is what you get after couple of years of not needing to pay attention.

I’d give a thumbs up, but I fear that’d be too soon.

I’d be careful about that. You never know what’s flying through the air and might want to rip your extended thumb off. 😜

It doesn’t look like he got the thumb off, a slash, maybe severed some ligaments or nerves

That’s rather unnerving.

I’ll see myself out.

Thank you, that joke was for me on the same level of entertainment than the comic itself!

From Lucas’ face I can say it’s not superficial.

As one who’s cut himself aplenty, I can say that if you’ve got a trickle of blood down your arm before you’ve settled on how to react, you’re in trou~ble~.

I figure he’s concerned about how bad Ethan is going to react, the cut definitely isn’t superficial with that much blood but it is probably just something that needs stitches.

To his credit, Ethan at least cut away from himself. Well, most of himself, at least.

See the funny thing is, it would actually be safer for Lucas to open the boxes, since he could just use his arrows from a distance.

Yes, Ethan

You DO need superpowers to open a box

Only YOU

If you work around sharp things, something will get you. I’m careful with blades, and never get nicked by a knife. Then one day a dishwasher tipped unexpectedly and slashed my thumb with a piece of exposed razor-sharp metal in the sides. I bled more than Ethan and still have the scar 9 years later.

I think we’re going to see more reckoning with how careless Ethan was when he thought he had infinite lives. After a momentary freakout and getting some stitches.

Ethan found a way to use a boxcutter almost as incorrectly as possible, while using for the intended purpose. That’s impressive. Points off for cutting away from himself, but he got all the other no-nos. 8.7, solid work. Give another .5 if he hit an artery or manages to finish the job buy not dropping the knife when he goes to grab the wound.

I mean, he technically did better than a lot of normal people often do – he started with cutting away from himself.

Too bad he was also cutting towards something else of his 😬

Ok, I laughed a lot. That said, I do not think it makes sense that Ethan has been so reckless when he had powers. Yes, he could respawn but I do not remember him having a healing factor or being invulnerable to pain. So cuts, stabbings, fallings from middle heights, things like that still hurt and take time to heal. I know he could kill himself in order to heal, but remember, Ethan does not like to die. It is not easy for him.

as someone who did stock fill for woolworths.. sadly this is super common; made worst by the poor quality box cutters they gave us which literally fall apart in our hands.

I’ve worked in a few kitchens and I lost count how many times I had to remind people “Mr. Knife should face away from you”

This might actually be good for Ethan. It gives him a point of reference for calibrating how afraid of death he should be in day-to-day life.

Ethan’s kind of like (due to not having to worry much) those folk born without any sensors for pain (in that they often hurt themselves because they don’t have the instincts and they can’t get the nerve warnings).

It’s a re-learning for him.

Ultimately, taking on bad guys with now powers… that’s a real risk. And nobody is going to pay for your health costs. And not everyone is Batman…

Maybe it is time to throw in the towel.

Probably something that they can just go get stitched up, I think Lucas is more concerned about/waiting for the extreme over reaction from Ethan than he is worried about the cut.

Okay, true story. About six years ago I started out at my new job as a laborer. One of my main jobs was to scrape the floors to prepare for flooring. Six months in I’m carrying a scraper and other tools in one hand. I absent-mindedly reached for one of my tools, ended up cutting my pinkie wide open with the scraper. Was bleeding profusely and cursing myself for being an idiot. Had to go to two different hospitals and it took over four hours just to sew it back together. Moreover, the blade had cut a tendon so I… Read more »
