im lAUGHING SO HARD BECAUSE LOOK AT HOW HARD MARIO IS TRYING TO STEAL THE SPOTLIGHT IN THE BACK
I seriously cannot grasp why people take this as a prophesy that John will die by the end of the comic, for good.
This is Doc Scratch speaking of the idea of John dying for good, because nothing lasts forever (he would know). This is Doc Scratch speaking of John’s character, the all-knowing narrator telling us that he’s pretty damn sure that John could never, ever play the role of the bad guy. The next page goes on to say that even if Doc Scratch himself tried to teach him how to be evil, it’s entirely possible that it wouldn’t work.
Let that sink in for a moment.
Now that you might have a greater appreciation of John, and no longer fear that John dies at the end, carry on.
sometimes i think about how portal was a game with no male characters, featuring a WOC protagonist and an excellent female antagonist who were both anything but sexualised, and yet somehow still managed to create an interesting and engaging experience for female and male gamers alike, win awards, and get a sequel, and then i look at people who say “games with female protagonists don’t sell” and i laugh. for a very long time.
