So, here’s something for discussion. Most of us can agree that Zeke is an intelligent being. He is conscious and thus is entitled to existence. However, given he has proven to be, if not specifically homicidal, at least willing to act psychopathic with no remorse should he be locked away anyways? I believe in rehabilitation but also in separating those who believe in causing harm to others with little or no remorse.

he was a slave of another … species? some forgiveness is warrented, but not i dare say forgetfullness what i think theyre going to do is limit Zeke’s motor power to less than a kitten or something, just strong enough to move play games and exist, and probably limit how far he can go oh and of course a killswitch

I watched Ex Machina recently, and I say turn him off and break the parts.

Sadly they disappear after he dies unless he’s had a chance to heal back to a new healthy “checkpoint” for his ability, so you’d have to skin him in small strips and let him heal over or something before repeating.

Oooohh a Three piece patchwork suit, how very stylish. The pain and agony gives the suit character.

That’s what I like to know. When ethan was stoke piling his blood to see if it disappears when he respawns, it didn’t. If Zeke can skin him fast and precise enough that he doesn’t die instantly, would the skin also remain? Has this been answered before?
Also, Can we get a drawing of that😃?

I think he’d have to skin him while cauterizing the skinned potions to keep him from bleeding out. Keep him alive till he removed a big enough piece of skin completely from Ethan while he is still alive then kill him once the skin has separated. Theoretically the skin should then survive his death. No telling if he would re-spawn with it thou.

This sounds like an even better way to torture him!

I think it’s a *really* cool touch that Ethan calls Zeke “he”; Scott calls Zeke “it”.

I’m really interested to see if Tim plays on this as part of the story-line, or whether it’s just a cool bit of world-building.

Same thing happens with pets or other things people particularly love, a pet owner will usually refer to he/she if not using the name given, where someone who is unattached or dislikes the breed or type will simply say e.g. ” I saw A dog run past”. Car lovers will genderise their favourite vehicle, trainspotters do/did it with favourite engines – its a common human impulse to give extra personality to an attachment they feel.

Thank you! Thank you, very much, for not doing a comic about Coronavirus. I am so sick and tired of hearing about that these days. I really do appreciate the escape you’re keeping up here.
