I'm not sure lighting Doc on fire is a path to victory for Rad.

Not if Doc learned anything from Dan, anyway. Rad may have just rendered his opponent untouchable.

Because I think Doc would have been totally on board with him if not for that.


I'm not so sure. I mean, Doc disliked Radical since before he showed himself as a villain, he was not having any of his radical stuff from the very start.

Also, Rad has killed a lot of other people (like his own scientists) and he's been kind of a jerk to his associates.

And now he's going to out-sword the ninja. Granted, Doc has no sword now, but I can't see that stopping him for long.

He can get his sword back. Ninja tricks. Remember?

Doc disliked Radical when he found out Radical was the mob kingpin of Cumberland. Which he wouldn't have needed to do if not for his convoluted scheme to power up the portal.

While Rad has a bit of a point about the reason Doc hates him to be petty at best, and Doc never tried diplomacy of any kind, Doc wasn't wrong, Rad is still a prejudiced monster, so while Doc IS right for the wrong reasons, he is still right.

That said, I am feeling Doc is acting a bit too much like Rorschach recently, I mean, everyone here knows the end of Watchmen, right?(I mean, come on, it's 30 years old...) how Rorschach choose to die because he couldn't live in the world Ozymandias created without trying to destroy it, regardless if said world is better or not? this is kinda where Rad has a point again, he is a popular leader who, while prejudiced, wouldn't go out of his way to harm the non-Radical people of the world if there is no benefit to him(and the main benefit he looked for was to bring his people into Doc's world), the best outcome for humanity at large may really be to let Rad win at this point, but doing so is an extremelly morally-grey choice at best.

However, I still want Doc to deck Rad in the nards because he is a dinkhead that killed the best Chuck.

How is the best outcome for humanity the one where they all die in the destroyed Radical Lands? Because that is what Radical tried to do, you mgiht recall. He wasn't making people's lives better, he was replacing humans from Doc!verse with radicalbeings from Radical!verse.

You realize like at most like 5% or 10% of the world's population conforms to Radical's standards and the rest are all gonna die, yeah? Like it's not a small number of lives will be gone if he finds a way to get the radical portal back again, we're talking a mass genocide of completely normal human in order to accommodate crazed beings from another dimension.

Also Gordito looks totes guilty.

I should have clarified... I don't believe there is another portal and I am working on the assumption there is not, Doc distrupted one, Sparkledancer destroyed the other, and without the space-time portal, Rad can't possibly further his plan, and without being able to further his plans, he poses no major threat to the non-rad population of the world.

Also, I was under the impression that people from DocVerse weren't being pushed into the Radical Lands, but rather into a third, even lamer universe which is implied to be our universe? unless I missed something about that along the way...
