Oh man this should get interesting. Wonder what kinda trap has been set for them? He has had quite a bit of time to move.

If it follows conventional story telling of the past 20-30 years, there will be several thousand X-02’s just waiting to be activated (off hand, Buffy, X Files, First Wave, and Stargate all did some variant of the one nigh-unstoppable bad guy getting multiplied into a bunch of nigh-unstoppable bad guys; I’m sure there are other examples I’ve missed). But let’s see what happens.

Personally, I suspect that X-01 was a “happy accident”, so it won’t be easy to replicate him. Here is my reasoning, feel free to tell me off, if you find something illogical 🙂 Firstly, Scott mentioned that a lot of the robot’s programming is basically written by the murder-bot himself (see “Identified” March 11, 2020) and even Scott can’t analyze the result properly. Odds are, the weebmaster can’t either. Secondly, if the weebmaster had what it takes to multiply X-01, I would expect him to do it right after the latter’s first encounter with the dynamic duo: he failed to… Read more »

Or you could split the difference, and there’s an army of X-02s just waiting to be finished and activated once the master understands how to replicate Zeke’s magical code…

Giving him a reason to want Zeke back, not just to blow him up.

Imagine the two stumbling upon a room filled with X-02’s and scared if the master activates them, so they try their best to keep the master away from any controls. Only unknown to them the master has never finished any of them and they’re just standing there gathering dust until the master figured out how to replicate Zeke’s code.

Everyone talking about X-02s, and I’m sitting here thinking, ‘he’s probably going to go with the cheaper model S, honestly, for his Legions of Doom.’

Similar to Age of Ultron

Kinda a shame but I really don’t care about the superhero verse anymore. I thought it started pretty good but I don’t know maybe as I get older the short funnies appeal to me more or maybe I am just tired of superheroes in general.

Honestly I think Console wars is my favorite segment now.

@Him.
That gives me a Princess Bride vibe, with the grandson interrupting the grandfather’s story telling.

That’s the rooftop at the beginning of L4D’s No Mercy campaign and you can’t convince me otherwise

Have they never experienced hail? Really, some people.

Its cause Hollywood. They always show the hero’s or villains shattering through those and either dropping or repelling in through a rain of glass fragments. They also like to show folks geting thrown headfirst through plate glass windows and geting up to fight some more. In reality unless you hit the skylight with something hard and pointed you could probably jump on it all night and not break through because they overengineer them for safety reasons. Likewise if you hit a glass window at a fast food place head first at best you’ll get a concussion and still be in… Read more »

Mostly you are right, but I saw windows and doors being shattered by people running through the wrong side of open glass doors.

I remember an occasion from the Darwin Awards, one man proved that the windows won’t shatter if you run full-strength against them. It did shatter when he and the window including the frame hit the pavement.

It’s usually a question of the thickness, quality and temper of the glass. Larger pains can actually flex a little without breaking, and glass that is thick or curved towards the impact is actually surprisingly strong. Thick restaurant glass is usually tempered on both sides, leaving it Extremely durable to blunt impacts but in such a way that the whole thing will immediately spider-web and be held together only by the surface coating the moment you pierce it anywhere. Glass doors for older or cheaper homes are generally made of thin glass, have no temper or are tempered facing outward,… Read more »

Good thing too. Not only would that have ruined any chance for a stealth entrance but Ethan would have died horribly by jumping THROUGH RAZOR SHARP GLASS. 😛
