    Wow, yeah, I think Vestine either needs a bullet to the head (as many as it would take) or should be permanently restrained and treated in a psychiatric facility. I don’t even know how to process this sort of nightmare fuel, but if anyone can imagine it then I know someone else could as well.

    Now all I can wonder is who is calling Lisa?

    Also, thanks for the double update! 😀

      HA! A hilarious thought just occurred to me.

      “Hey, I wonder what this old video file had on it? Heh, what moron thought anyone would still use THIS file format in the future?”

      😀

    I’m confused, I thought Vestine was trying to start a race war? Is she or does she just hate everyone equally now, but still holds racist views?

      hm I think her priority first is to take over the world, then once she’s established total dominance she can start implementing all sorts of white supremacist policies. Maybe she’d do it gradually bit by bit over a period of years, like they did in nazi Germany.

        Besides it is traditional for villains to tell heroes of their plans for world domination. See 007 and many more. Steven has just found a new way to do it.

    Most of you must have seen that Vestine has a connector link on her forehead, thus she’s not pulling the strings but someone else is and that person remains in the dark. Must say I like her enormous body tattoo. The gray hair in the last pages doesn’t fit hear like the deep dark hair in the earlier pages. Curious who is calling Lisa. If Lefty has been discovered, doesn’t look good for Lisa … Hope the Steward keeps her safe. Go for it Lisa … we are all with you.
    Who is behind Vestine’s creator since she also shows android characteristics?

    Also the nazi’s and neo nazi’s despise homosexuals and Vestine shows a clear interest in women. So is she also a hypocrite to that belief or is she just flat out racist?

      I think Vestine’s world view is based on herself being exceptional, or even the only one that matters at all. Then on top of that she developed some racist notions while young and impressionable and angry at her adoptive mom. People often get stuck in an ideology… and they definitely can’t change what they’re sexually attracted to, so yes not perfectly logical. But I don’t think she even realizes it, she’s not good at self-examination, anything she does is by definition good to her. If someone criticizes her, or if there’s a voice in her head questioning, she immediately silences them by changing the rules. Like when his followers complained to Mohammed that he was breaking his own rule, he’d just go off and come back with a newly written sura to establish an exception to that rule.

      There’s a reason why the line, “I’m not racist; some of my friends are black”, always gets a laugh. It’s just human nature to support certain principles, but make exceptions for your friends; especially if your “principles” are just excuses to justify your cruelty.

    So that’s the plan. Well, shit. Way back when the Hong Kong police told Lisa that she may be responsible for the end of the world, I assumed that he was mistaken, that the real villains knew what they were doing. It’s kinda refreshing to see a fictional world conquest plan that can’t possibly result in anything more than disaster. And that blind arrogance, oh God, it’s like watching the real Sec Def from a few administrations ago tell us that we would be greeted as liberators in Iraq (shudder).

    The “the end” title card was just *chef’s kiss*. She didn’t even bother to capitalize.
