Whatever you have to tell yourself to justify your lack of murder.

Well, his current lack of murder is due his restricted body by his kidnappers, so MurderZeke got a good excuse for why he can’t murder atm.^^

Not to be a nag, but wasn’t the delightful mister Horrigan revealed only much later in the story? At least in my playthroughs Vic was long dead by then. So was Myron, but I won’t say if it was unnatural causes (e.g. Super Mutants) or a spray of stray bullets that I may or may not have accidentally fired at his head at point blank range from my minigun.

The first time you see Horrigan is when he mercilessly kills some farmer without any specific reason, happens quite early in-game

There’s a random encounter where Horrigan shoots civilians. I personally usually saw it pretty early in the game. Not sure if he’s introduced by name, but Ethan certainly took care of that.

Hrm, can’t remember that encounter. But if it’s random I may just as well have missed it.

I might be just as much as a sucker as Ethan, but I really want to see the redemption of the xbot so much.

My money is on his escape, attempted murder of his creator, Ethan stopping him just in time, and having his creator arrested.

Still waiting on a reverse-Ultron moment when Zeke is able to explore the internet and at first justifies his hate for humans but then sees the many good things they’ve done too. Zeke’s machine-superiority was always a part of his charm, but 1.0 Zeke also saw why humans were good to keep around too.

Oposite! he will see how humans are destroying the planet and themselves and he decides why to bother killing them when they are better at it.

All the wars. All the murder. All that delightful suffering.
Better grab some digital popcorn and just… watch.

“Well… at least that’s a step?”
“But is it in the right direction?”
“… he’s not murdering anyone anymore?”
“…”

Get ready for a minute analysis/nitpicking. Hold on, let me put my nerdy glasses on… Let’s talk about cables. Specifically, the 2 that are hooked up to Zeke’s neck and the 2 that are hooked up to Ethan’s laptop. They seem to share the same color and design across multiple pages, so it’s reasonable to assume that those are the same cables connecting Zeke and the laptop (breathtaking deduction, I know, but bear with me for the moment). This correlates with what Ethan said on panel 1 of this page (https://cad-comic.com/comic/connect/): Zeke doesn’t require keyboard and mouse to play, so… Read more »

3) He just has / is about to remove/d the cables and has not yet put them down

4: It was already done. Because not *every little detail* needs to be shown on screen. *Some* things are such minor details that the viewer should be able to extrapolate that they’ve happened without needing to be shown.

I’m guessing Zeke is plugged into a standard wired router which is connected to Scott’s computer (allowing it to run programs to monitor him, keep him offline, etc). Ethan probably just plugged into that router. Other option is – two cables are coming out of the back of Ethan’s computer – presumably the cable to connect to Zeke and a power cable. It looks like he’s only holding one when packing up, so he may only be taking his power cable with him.

Zeke may be hooked up to a Network of sorts that may or may not have been set up to allow him limited access in order to play the game. Rather than having to unplug the cables from Zeke himself Ethan might have had to just disconnect from the Network router.

I know that pop up video ads on my mobile device are part of the business model that keeps this site alive, and I respect it. But, the ads are now both loud and actively interfering with my navigation of this site. I don’t seem to be able to close the video for more than 10 seconds at a time, either…I had about 4 such ads interrupt my attempt to type this comment.

Try the Report An Ad button on the side. But also, spending on advertising has cratered worldwide, so like with the Great Recession, ad networks are stuck serving up the bottom of the barrel. Or will be soon if they aren’t already. Which is going to mean more gross and/or obnoxious ads and video ads probably throughout the spring.

Pihole, you won’t look back and if you want to support sites with ads, you can whitelist the mon-video ad providers with a little research. Having worked in ad tech though, even over in the EU, where we have GDPR protections, none of it is worth the amount of data scraping than even the ad loaders do. It’s beyond creepy, to the point of resembling malware at times to break out of the i-frame’s sandboxing. If there’s a patreon instead, I’d opt for that or coffee instead, even 1 buck per person would be a more substantial revenue than the… Read more »

Opera can blick ads, too. Unfortunately this seems necessary.

When do we find out that he just uploaded his consciousness into the web, giving him control over all the PCs in the world?

i like how 90% of the comments are referring to xb1 as zeke, hoping that he is a holdover from past comics rather than just accepting that its a completely new character who is going to travel his own new and unique path. honestly hoping he does escape and take out scott and lucas driving ethan to a life of ever sought after revenge which he can never actually accomplish.

Next thing you gonna be saying that Ethan doesn’t end up with Lilah, huh?

SuperSyrias
Guest
SuperSyrias

most people on here expect and WANT xb1 to become Zeke 2.0. and that IS whats going to happen. He will not be 100% the same, since none of them are. but the general relationship we know will sooner rather than later develop.
The fans want him to be Zeke and i really really doubt the creator is going to go “naaaah, i dont care at all what the fans want”.

I’m sure there’s other comics out there that might conform with your demands more willingly. I’d suggest moving on to them, since this one obviously isn’t something you’re capable of ‘dealing with’.

I am mildly concerned that not-Zeke is messing with Ethan again and is just humoring him to get what he wants.

Awwww, he’s coming around in his own weird semi murdery way! He likes having fun with his pet human!
(I swear if that is just zeke being a manipulative ass, I’m gonna be sad.)
