    And he waited to use this because..?

    I assume it's probably a suicide attack.

    Solomon's whole thing was he was holding back, ostensibly to not fuck his own home up.

    I'm assuming those people that were giving him shit are -probably- dead simply from Solomon getting this technique started.

    Also that's totally Jadis's world. Her whole thing is ziggurats.

    Also Dave blowing himself the fuck up in a suicide attack is exactly how I want him to go out.

    I guess this explains how some of the characters survive the Jaggpoalypse, if Salami Dave has punched him to another world

    I wouldn't be shocked if Jaggs actually bit it here or in a few pages, as just another symptom of how off the rails this cycle has become.

    Then the thorns have to show up to try and get shit back under control and we segue into the final act.

    One of those panels was so fucking manga that my eyes automatically read it right to left and my brain broke trying to figure out what the fuck

    IMMORTALS SLAYER OF TEMPLE ART FORBIDDEN

    meant

    Ahem, it's the FORIBBDEN technique

    Foribbden, of course, was the first and greatest master of Ki-rata.
    So powerful were they, that their very name became corrupted by time and used to label any technique that was too dangerous to use.

    Notice the added dark lines to Wilbur!'s face in this strip. The darkness is coming for him tonight, and her name is Mary Worth.

    And that’s the moment the behelit activates, but fails because nobody loves Wilbur and Wilbur loves nothing

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say Jag perishes, but Solomon lives and chooses not to go back and rule

    as far as narrative tropes go, the Sin of Pride has always been the least redeemable. The Prideful would rather fight and die than admit defeat, and their hubris costs them their achievements

    But I feel like we've covered that with Mottom; and Solomon, while absolutely full of pride and blinded by it, also does seem to genuinely care about his world and his people

    I feel like it might be entirely possible that he passes his key to White Chain and then does exactly what he told Zaid he's gonna do - proceed on the lonely path to enlightenment and Royalty as an ascetic monk

    His arc is what we thought the sinfest arc was before he went all TERF.

    He still misses the mark every now and again, but it's obvious that the effort is there.

    I'm not suggesting redemption. I don't think he could be redeemed after what he's done, ever. Just that with some distance and perspective he'll realize how he fucked up and walk away from it all; it doesn't mean he'll seek, get or deserve forgiveness

    I much prefer the nuance of Solomon being honest and genuine in his intent about his kingdom and people and him wanting to protect them but absolutely fucking the whole thing up because when has One Badass Dude making all the choices ever been a good thing?

    I dunno we're reaching absurd levels of anime powerups, increasing your power by 10,000 percent probably ain't shit. Jagg'll just increase his power by 100,000 percent.

    Yeah and the demiurge that fucked his world up in round 1 of the universal war snuffed out the original sun. I think that solar system with one rocky planet with a methane atmosphere will forgive Solomon for nicking the sun, if he even did nick it and didn't will a brand new sun into existence using the key of kings in his forehead or by punching the universe in the dick.

    And how dare he build a civilization out of the ruined and shattered remains of whatever the hell was left over at the end of that war.

    Was what he built perfect, no. Is he himself a perfect character, either perfectly evil or perfectly good, no. He is the epitome of "One Hard Man Doing Hard Things" not "Totally Evil Tyrant With No Redeemable Qualities God Emperor Of Dick Punching."
