Ethan 1.0 : *builds extremely sophisticated automaton*

Ethan 2.0 : *should probably ask Scott’s help*

On a side note, got a feeling that this may arc may somehow lead to the still active kill switch being revealed to ZK.

It makes me sad because I really don’t want Zeke to become a villain again.

I suspect it’ll be an anti-hero progression (I’m thinking Spike from Buffy), where the call to violence will be tempered by newfound moral growth.

And without a challenge, how are we to convey that the character has actually grown, rather than just the absence of opportunity to murderbot?

Agreed, now that the obligatory ‘silly attempt’ has been accomplished Ethan is gonna dig in to properly fix ZK and in the process stumble across the kill switch. However I think he’ll remove it and show it to ZK and they’ll conclude its a left over from his former master and both ZK will open up to Ethan for helping him. Neither will realize who put it in there really, likely until some later point in a much later comic at which point then we’ll have ‘zeke gets splashed with water and goes evil 2.0’, Lucas will freak when the… Read more »

This should have started with:
“Trust me I know what I am doing… ”

But that would be a callback to the 80s, so perhaps not for most here.

Or to quote those three car guys.

I get the Sledge Hammer reference, being a child of the 80s, and appreciate it.

“Guns don’t kill people. Bullets kill people.”

Oh yes, lovely reference. That show was ahead of its time. Recently learned about the ending, and that it was written by a 15yo. Wonderful.

Too old for many here, but pop culture is a huge part of our geekdoms. And Sledge Hammer is a timeless classic. Or should be.

I WAS on the “don’t let Zeke vent his frustrations on Ethan” side of things right up until that last panel.

Exactly what I was thinking in my head.

And I love that show. Have nearly gotten bronchitis from watching it.

The instant he pulled out the playdough (or whatever equivalent it is) should have been the “hold on, lets call someone more mechanically minded” moment.

Zeke’s eyes are blue… so they are not angry?

His anger is currently overridden by his crushing disappointment.

Not how I thought this would go I figured they would come up and say that made him e was a ruler of his people that would fight for his people and not hide behind them when there was a war and then of course have Ethan find him a new complete face mask for when he wants to look extra friendly and then have that one for what he wants to look strong and menacing

Ooh, try and make it look like a monocle. He’d probably like that!

I notice the eyes aren’t actually red though. I think he’s realized Ethan is just an idiot.

You didn’t notice Zeke’s eyes getting progressively bluer each panel of the last strip?

I feel like just giving him an eye patch would be better. He could say he is a pirate.

Better yet: use a bra as an eye-patch as a Questionable Content reference.

I know that there’s a current arc with Z.K to make them more human, but what about Embla? I’ve been wondering what her place in the story would be, although she’d probably be a villain.

All in favour of ZK having a monocle as his right lens? Aye
