    It would.
    Are you sure they could pull it off?
    Hate to see what happens to any army of Yuuzhan Vong that lose to him.
    Shamed status probably, lots of torture to atone for this and be even more zealous the next time they face 000.

    I don't think YV would allow one of their own to live if he/she was bested by a machine, even as a Shamed One. Least of all a machine as abominable as 000.

    Yeah 000 against the Vong. It'd be priceless

    Gakk what an issue / ending, holy hell! Vader wrecking stuff and that final twist was amazing. Aphra is still trapped in a hell of her own making, you'd figure she might switch sides eventually but she's totally tethered to Triple Zero which is a fantastically twisted idea.

    Okay, I clearly think about Tam Poszla more than I should, but assuming his arc is over... what was his deal? I mean, I know what most of his deal was, sort of, but I was hoping to find out a couple of things in there somewhere.

    When 000 fully Wolverines him in this issue there seems to be a lot of "blood" (and likewise when he "self-harms") whereas Tam was previously shown to be, like, almost completely mechanical -- in some frames he was revealed to be, in every practical respect, a droid (there didn't even seem to be room for an organic brain in there). Sure, 000's claws could be dripping mechanical fluids and stuff, but... what's the intent here?

    Poszla's characterized as an organic sentient with a personal history and non-droid-like agency, and most references call him a cyborg. I'm just gonna take the visual depictions as characteristic "Aphra" loopiness, but I would have liked to know how he got that way. Is that standard for Milvayne operatives, something weird he did to himself, or something Evazan did to him at some point just because Evazan? Would've liked to know.

    Mostly I enjoy the little surrealistic tics in "Aphra" since I decided to pretend it was like what if Terry Gilliam directed Star Wars, but this one was a little too much of a loose end for me.

    Looks like the Force fungi will inhabit Tam Poszla after all.

    Just finished the Catastrophe Con graphic novel. I can't say I appreciated the ending, being a big fan of Aphra of course, but it sure was a hell of a twist. Not sure how she gets out of this one. Since I don't collect the individual comics, I'll have to wait for the next graphic novel to be released this June.
