When last we left our Thrust of Justice (that sounds awful), we were deciding whether to follow Dale's plan on attacking the super cockroach duplicate guy or not. We opted to go with it, and thus:
How cool! An alien invasion, our gorgeous co-worker in a spandex outfit, and purple slime wanting to get in our pants. This is the best day EVAR.
So what to do? On the one hand, if you're not the main character in your own story, what's the point? I mean, we found the suit, we should be the one saving the day.
On the other hand, we can't actually understand our own powers. This is a pretty big decision and it seems like, you know, being able to talk to the giant metal suit upon which all of humanity's hope rests would be a Good Thing.
So what do you think we should do?
Hmm…smart thing you’d probably do in real life? Or thing that is most likely to be interesting? Decisions, decisions…
In most of these polls, I usually just end up voting for whichever one is losing at the time I happen to see it. So that’s what I did this time.
I’m thinking we give the suit to Dale. Since we have Nightwatch..Woman here with us, I have a feeling if something bad does happen to Dale, she’s gonna take us back to her secret hideout and give us some of Nightwatchman’s gear.
On the one hand, Dale both understands our suit and has had at least one fight-winning idea, which is better than we’ve done so far. On the other hand, if all the other Cosmic Guardians are bad guys, it stands to reason that our intelligent suit might also want us to be a bad guy. So having a solid telepathic link to the suit might turn out to be a terrible thing, for both the world and for Dale.
No suit for you!
Give up the suit to the weird comic relief? Screw that, I’m the hero!
What X-stacy said. I’d rather destroy the world by accident than by collusion. Wait… That didn’t come out right.
Oh frak it! Let’s boogey with the 1000 other guys that have the same suit we do AND know how to use it. If we’re going to die, at least we’ll die making a complete ass of ourselves (instead of doing a half-ass job of it). 😉
I can’t get around it. Dale can talk to the suit, so it stands to reason he’s the best one to control it and maybe thereby understand the alien tech in the mothership. I trust the author (?!) to give us something to do in the meantime. And Dale’s lapses in rationality might be exactly what’s required to flummox the invaders.
keep the suit. Don’t forget it has an habit of vaporising is old owner.
(I don’t follow those “choose your adventures”, but I must say – “Thrust of Justice” is up there with “Blessing of Protection” among phrases that sound very paladin-ish and very suggestive all at the same time)
I vote we go ourselves. For one thing, it sounds more exciting, and for another, just because Dale understands what the suit is saying doesn’t necessarily mean the suit will do what he says, whereas it seems to have mostly obeyed our orders so far.
