Denver Comic Con
June 30 - July 2, 2017
Clearly, the Baron views this relationship as much more complex than Luke does. But in the end, they both want to kill each other.
See This is how to properly monologue: from a hologram projection while you give time for your goons to get in place for an ambush.
The Baron is no idiot villain. As to be expected, regarding how diverse and thought-out the characters are laid out in this story. Still is vulnerable to his hybris, judging from his talk about Übermenschen and connected superiority complex. Which will likely be his downfall.
And I hope, he will fully “appreciate” his failure.
I might be a sadist but I only like people to suffer who deserve it .
Of course, it could be that The Baron’s feelings of superiority are entirely justified. We’ll have to see how the Battle of the Asylum plays out…
seeing he’s a villain and the heroes always win in end the answer to the is he’s not and nether are the others
“Heroes always win in the end?”
Debatable, but I see your point. The comic itself is based around The Specialists. They (the good ole’ captain included) are our protagonists: and we expect them to beat the odds and come out on top in the end.
But there’s a lot of subtext there, isn’t there? “Beat the odds” must mean that the odds are stacked heavily against them. And if the odds are so stacked, i’d venture that that means the Übermenschen are superior. At least for the moment, they certainly seem to have a better grasp of their abilities, they’ve all seen combat before, they’ve been deployed by the German State to win battles time and time again. The Specialists are downright green in comparison.
Another key phrase is “in the end”. While we talk about the constraints of the medium, the fact is that the story of The Specialists is just getting started. Who knows what characters we’ll lose on the way to victory? Who knows whether any of the original team will see Germany and her Übermenschen defeated?
I see a difference between being better prepared and being superior.
a modern car is superior to a model T because there’s almost nothing the model T can do to match a modern car no matter how prepared it’s driver is.
the Übermenschen may be more organized at the moment and so will likely win this fight but that in no way means they superior. as for losing main cast that won’t likely happen until the very end of the story and even then I can only see the cap dying,
Dr. Nietzsche didn’t have good things to say about Germany and Germans. He would not have been surprised, or happy, with the Nazis. His own sister was one before they became Nazis in Bavaria. He found them disgusting and loathsome idiots.
Dr. Nietzsche‘s view of his overman concept was someone like Goethe.
But that didn’t stop Elizabeth Nietzsche or anyone else from appropriating a few things and turning them into what too many known and still believe today.
I had been contemplating writing something about what would be left had the self destructive Nazis won. How long would they last? Not a good prospect.
One worse case scenario is the totalitarians win. Not just Germany and Japan, but Russia, Italy, and Spain to name a few.
The thing is that Nietzsche’s Übermensch is not only superior in raw power and possibilities but in morality – something the Nazi idea of an Übermensch lacks greatly outside their own twisted version of it, when taken to the test by level-headed people.
Well, the end can still be far in the future.
There is also the very hard truth that survival is not always the same thing as winning.
“I must go now, I have run out of quips.”
Imminent punch is imminent.
This is like with Hannibal Lector, very intelligent and deeper than the coarse layers of killer.
Baron Blood almost sounded sorry, but not really. He gets over it fast when he is on to the next one and so on…
Baron . is his media nickname, and he loathes it. In German, all the most ridiculous names sound awesome.
Wait. What is wrong with my formatting. Bad unexplained HTML! Bad!
Yes, I couldn’t think of his name so Baron Blut came to mind.
I notice the person prominently featured in the preview of the video at the bottom of the blog post, presumably The Stalker, has a remarkably unusual uniform. What is the purpose of the missing leg? To distract? Allure? Confuse? Inquiring minds desire to know.
