I’m the guy that which does Love and Capes.
I’m probably going to get flamed for this but…
This comes off feeling very insensitive on Abby’s end. She knew that the Crusader could be killed. She knows he works a very dangerous job and one of his friends, a very good friend, was just killed in the line of duty. Then she asks him, basically as a means to reassure her of their relationship, through asking him to consider his own death in the line of duty.
Now granted, I know people do this, and I know there is usually not malice involved when someone does it but… Geeze… I just feel for Mark here. He has to be supportive of his wife, but she’s introducing new doubt to him at a time when he’s likely feeling very vulnerable and probably a little scared himself.
Well, funerals have a way of making you think of death.
They also remind you of what’s important.
This reminds me of the last line from Blade Runner: “I didn’t know how long we had together. Who does?”
That line was building off what the police assistant said earlier, speaking about the replicant Rachael, and which is one of my favorite movie lines of all time: “It’s too bad she won’t live. But then again, who does?” How very true for all of us.
That’s the problem with funerals: they make everybody antsy and a little bit selfish.
‘Cause none of us wants to be left all alone…
Well has it ever occurred to him to share with his Super-friends his origin story?
I mean sure he doesn’t want “green rocks everywhere” but shouldn’t they be genre savvy and Maybe know a thing or two about his secondary powers by now?
