So, they’ll catch the culprit, Ethan will wind up on the news like that, and as his idiocy is explained, Emily will know immediately what his secret identity is.

Ooooo, now we come up to a (existential?) question: Naturally if he dies and respawns here, his brain would return to its previous “save.” But what happens considering he would survive this brief moment of stupidity and ends up dying later? Would his destroyed brain cells return, or are they now permanently gone forever? I know this seems an odd thing to ask, but it just seems like the natural progression of the blood donation SL bit.

My immediate thought, as well. If I were Ethan, I’d be a lot more concerned with inflicting permanent, non-lethal damage. I mean, even if it didn’t stick until the next respawn, what if he’s too injured to do the old Coup de Grace? For example, a situation where Lucas (and anyone else who knows his power set) is killed and he ends up a vegetable with well-meaning family keeping him alive for decades until he finally dies of natural causes and respawns to find everyone he ever knew dead. Or worse yet, it turns out that natural causes is his… Read more »

The sane thing for Ethan to do is to make suicide his evening bed ritual, just like brushing your teeth. You know, to be safe because of the stupid shit he pulls every day.

That’s gotta work for some epic water cooler small-talk:

“So, how was your day?”

“Oh, not bad. Usual routine. Got home from work, had some take-out, did some dishes. Watched some Netflix – been really disappointed with their Marvel stuff recently, y’know? Anyway, after that, I killed myself before winding down with a glass of wine before bed. You?”

Thanks, and I agree. I don’t know if this response will be seen by Mr. Buckley, but if so, I certainly give my consent for him to use the idea. A shout out in the comments would be nice, but have at it.

The British TV series “Misfits” used that already. One of the characters was immortal – no matter how much damage was done, he would come back to life (the very first time after he was already buried). A person affected by the same unnatural storm developed the ability to animate/control milk (and any other dairy, as it later turned out) killed most of the group except Rudy, whom he wrapped tendrils of cheese from the pizza they had shared earlier around his brain stem and put him in a vegetative coma…

I hope he ordered the… vegetarian pizza.

Heh.

Anyway sounds interesting, odd and a little dark – I may have to check that out. Thanks for posting about it.

Ethan’s respawning isn’t governed by the rules of our normal physical world; it’s governed by video game logic. Brain damage, unless part of a major story arc (see Final Fantasy VII Disc 2) is treated either as a debuff or as damage, both which would be wiped upon respawning.

Yeah but he had that whole “how can I sell my blood” arc a few pages ago.

Maybe if he can kill himself quickly enough he can respawn without the paint and damaged braincells.

I don’t think he can “save” while injured or messed up. So if he stays paint garbled for an hour and dies at the end then his last save is before he went all “witness me”

This joke comes so out of left field and has so little to do with the characters as we have seen them progress that I have to wonder if anyone thought about this at all beyond “aerosol paint makes you high”. Which, I must say, is also totally incorrect. Ethan would be gagging and barfing not experiencing vague euphoria and certainly not enough of it got into him to melt brain cells. A more apt situation would be him spraying it onto the wall and then smelling it. Unless I am mistaken and the characters are simply a vehicle for… Read more »

Welp, this is the way these comics go. If you don’t like the “badly thought out and poorly written jokes” then you don’t have to be here. You have the wonderful freedom that the internet allows you to move on to other webcomics…. Unless of course you’re just here to troll…. In which case:

a more apt situation would be anybody else reasoning out that they are not a bloodhound and there’s no reasonable likely hood of tracking the perp by the scent of spray paint in the first place. Heck even if they tried your idea and could somehow actualy track that smell they’d be tracking the can in their own hand. Ethan has always been the impulsive character type. He sees a problem, thinks of a vaguely plausible way to deal with the problem and runs with the idea without even considering if there are downsides or if that idea is plausible… Read more »

have you read the original cad? Ethan has a small history of just snorting things up his nose…. especially green things

Gotta delete those negative criticisms, lest they affect your ability to produce content. Classy stuff.

God, I wish I had that respawning power. Do something damaging like accidentally huff paint? No need for consequences. That’s for people without superpowers. One swift swan dive off the roof, pop back into reality, my 157 IQ is preserved!
