FB: “According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two. Does that sound right? This means that Syr’Nj would be better off getting blown up than finishing the oratory.”

Time to check back in with this outfit’s chief military leaders, wouldn’t you say? And at the same time, we get the full consequences of the decision Jarvis has just made…the last of many sins by the Altruists against the people they claimed to uplift.

I feel like some of you might’ve misunderstood me when I said that Jarvis’s never-say-die attitude was a “heroic quality.” I do think it’s admirable in isolation (it’s certainly better than a Taro-style tantrum or total denial). But you can’t isolate it from the rest of him forever, and it’s his many less savory qualities (like, oh, willingness to sacrifice the lives of common citizens) that seem more likely to tip Anubis’ scales in the end.
