agreed and agreed - but we do not know what causes this gene to manifest. Could a mutation primarily caused by exposure to something uniquely western? who knows
It can't be Western, it's global. The whole thing is an allegory for the "equitable" redistribution of wealth/power.
also, latest comic update: apparently blu-man group guy legit thinks himself a GOD.
Yeah, this comic
is amazingly stupid. Though I think when he refers to himself as an "avatar" he means he's a representative of the god rather than literally being that god.
I remind you that all these supes came about because of a wierd thunderstorm that happened when they were all in utero.
So: Thunderstorm outside + fetus = ZEE UBERMENSCH because that's how genetics work.
I forgot about the storms
, although that's probably why I've been calling this a ripoff of Rising Stars (though in that it was a comet). I couldn't remember why I favored that over X-Men.
Anyhow, the comic hasn't claimed that created them; the storms may have just been Cthulhu
that weather control kid stirring in his sleep in R'lyeh
utero. If the storm really was the cause, well, we're back to your point about that not being how genetics works. If it was a mutation of genes rather than the existence of one specific gene
this wouldn't be so ridiculous.
