Your Overlords Declare:
Alexis_Royce, June 16th, 2017, 7:17 pm

If you can make a lot of money off a hero, and you have the technology to bring the back from near-certain death...

...why would you ever let them die?

(My answer to the "how do superheroes/villains keep coming back to life?" question.)

Makes one wonder which is the REAL evil organization here.

Stefan (Guest), June 18th, 2017, 9:45 am

@BattleStarX That they call themselves COMPANY should be a clear indication for their real goals. Calling them good could be considered as a mistake and calling them evil is also not quite right. And malevolent is also unfitting. The goal of the COMPANY is to gain influence while making profits on the way. In that regard they are no different then any real life corporation.

Did Mr. Cross get a commission off Kevin's new debt?

Xylas_Incarnum, June 18th, 2017, 4:35 pm

... how many heroes become villains because of this?

Gotta love "Lawful Evil".

Wow so many dimensions I wanna see them all and how is he gunna get that kind of money to pay for his surgery

Broken Gear (Guest), June 19th, 2017, 7:09 am

@Xylas_Incarnum not many I would assume. At least not the ones that were repaired the way that... whats-his-name was. I mean, the logical thing to do would be to install some fail-safe that turns off the "help" when they turn against COMPANY. The others already shown their identities anyway. If they turned villains they would have to resort to hiding 24/7. Not a fate many would choose.

You've sold your soul to the Company. . . hospital.

That actually is worse than selling your soul to the company store.

90% sure his immediate thought is gonna be "I thought I still had my spine. But it turns out you replaced it. Uh... good to know on the debt slave heroism though?

TriforceP (Guest), June 19th, 2017, 7:03 pm

But he already knows that his spine was replaced. It was mentioned a few weeks ago

dalewarrior (Guest), June 20th, 2017, 6:48 pm

WOW the "heros" work on a basis of debt slavery o.O

Xylas_Incarnum, June 21st, 2017, 8:24 pm

@Broken Gear Wouldn't know about that, besides, they'd only gradually start to turn as depression sets in over a long period of time. A slave by any other name, regardless of what they do on a day to day basis, is still a slave. Choking a bit from the collar, so to speak, happens eventually. Depending on the personality/mindset of the, uh, slave that is.

HamPlan (Guest), June 23rd, 2017, 1:17 pm

They aren't SLAVES, rather more like, say, Coal miners who only work because they can't afford much more than what they have. In this case it IS a forced iteration of that, but not slavery. They do rest, they do have lives, just Overwhelmingly Guaranteed Job Security (tm)

A Public Service Dennouncement
"No one get to DIE"
Well, at least they have established that GOING FULL EMO IS NEVER THE ANSWER.

blast335 (Guest), June 26th, 2017, 10:23 pm

Is "Mr. Cross" Andy?
Or am I forgetting someone?

This reminds me of what a friend said a few years back: Capitalism died in the 90s, we're back to feudalism now.
