FB: These Expendables sequels are getting weirder and weirder.

I’m a bit sorry to condense this fight the way we do in panel 4 here. On the one hand, the four-against-one battle is weighted in Ardaic’s favor. But there could’ve been some interesting maneuvers here before he started winning, and we could’ve shown more clearly that he’s not quite the warrior he once was. Still, the character moment we’re setting up here for Keynes is more important.

Interesting that Ardaic uses his power to magick himself up a horse, not some kind of tank or airship. I think that shows the humility at his core: for all his power (political and magickal), he thinks of himself as a simple soldier.

This episode was particularly fertile ground for punsters in the original comments.
