    will never stop being impressed by how folks twist themselves into knots trying to justify why the fascist godking that rules through fear and brute force is actually a good guy deep down

    If you missed it, my previous post about "just taking back what was his" was dripping with sarcasm.

    Oh right remember how Dave set up a tournament to give himself an excuse to burst a bunch of blood balloons, I just remembered that

    A few pages before he's also like "Yo, do nothing and you win, money, titles, prestige, ectect. But if you want to double or nothing your winnings... go ahead and try and punch me."

    There's a couple of them that are smart enough to not try and attack.

    Then when White Chain wins, he doesn't freak out. He acknowledges her win and seems totally ready to deal. Of course we never got to hear his answer on that and we can debate about it til the cows come home but whatever.
    See that's not honorable. That's psycbological manipulation. He said that knowing that most of the people would try and attack him, and then he popped them.

    He killed hundreds of people to flex.

    He's a piece of shit. Like could he be a worse piece of shit? Probably. Do I enjoy reading about him? Yep.

    Yeah but also you can see how he sees it. It's a test. Can they safely choose to acknowledge him as superior, and accept everything that he offers freely, or are they bold enough to take the risk? He would say its not manipulation but rather a question he poses to them all, and their nature provides their answer.

    And that may be bollocks but its is interesting. He doesn't just murder them all cos he is a psychopath. He has a self-imposed code, a system of reasoning. It's like how when Doctor Doom decides not to attack the Fantastic Four when they're sneaking through his castle cos the hallway they're in is full of priceless artwork that could be damaged. He's evil and a bad guy and a tyrant despot but that still quite interesting as a trait!

    You know, there's a pretty good opportunity right now for Maya to show up and dunk on Incubus.

    What with the fight having just been punched to somewhere else, and all.

    Also, if the rest of the K6BD universe is anything to go by, everyone in that entire tournament outside of the main characters were probably more than a little bad themselves.

    The protagonist crew had a genocidal cannibal devil (plus a second somewhat less evil devil) and an absolutist lawful good prick of an angel too, they weren’t exactly saints.

    I’m using past tense for my statement with the assumption that Jag is still gonna kill everyone and the webcomic will switch to be about Allison’s roommates having wacky hijinks on earth.

    Look, if I can make it safer in my realm by taking out most of the people willing to kill to be in charge, I might avail myself.

    Oh boy is that not a good argument for why it's not all that bad that Solomon killed a bunch of people.

    If you want to make a moral comparison between the demiurges and Cio in terms of "why is Cio ok but the demiurges are irredeemable," I guess my argument would be that Cio regrets her sins and is trying to be a better person while all the demiurges except maybe senile grandpa dragon are currently actively still mega-satan and aren't the least bit sorry about it, they don't even think there's anything wrong with it. Which is part of why I'm glad the power of friendship with the demiurges didn't beat Jag, that would have been a pretty hollow victory, storywise.

    The demiurges are good because they are characters in the story. The rando civilians are scum because they are nobodies. I'm sorry I don't make the rules, that's just how it is.

    Cio doesn't really regret what she did, she just doesn't want to feel bad about it any more. She's not that bothered about all the people she had tortured IIRC

    Also I get what you're saying but theoretically Salami Dave might regret what he did too and thus be in vaguely the same camp.

    The reason Cio is acceptable as redeemable is because she was introduced as a somewhat heroic character. Whereas Solomon David was not.

    It's also still not 100% clear what the relation a demon has to their prior masks is, and how much they consider them separate entities. Princess Jack Moonshine is becoming a very different person than Vladok was.

    No one's saying he isn't interesting. Just bemoaning people treating him as anything other than a blood-drenched tyrant, just because he's clothed in the same empire-apologia that surrounds us in real life.

    and I think Abbadon isn't interested in Solomon's redemption because of his feelings on imperialism

    Meanwhile Allison is using a jury-rigged PC held together by duct tape and what I suspect to be a dial-up modem doing the "Guess I'll die" pose.

    No, that's Inky. Allison is part of the triad at the end.

    (and Jagg is typing, like, 400+ APM )

    sad grandpa dragon would go afk at spawn to continue counting his money

    incubus would spawn camp to up his score

    salami dave would be very good at whatever they're playing because of his amazing reflexes but ultimately can't beat Jadis' omnipotence. Mottom is as described. Gog wastes most of each round spraying goatse on everything for a larf. Jaggahog is planning to kill everyone irl

    as a formerly obese, still overweight male I appreciate showing a Man of Gravity be the object of someone's affections

    but at the same time I just find it extremely unrealistic

    everything about internalized fat shaming, fatphobia, and body image redefinition is true and relevant to me, don't get me wrong

    but "in the real world" I have never, ever, ever actually seen something like that happen

    it's odd because I feel like that comic has capital R Representation of an ideal you wish to mandate unto the world, not something that is actually happening and being suppressed, oppressed or misrepresented
