We haven’t seen the laser-whip since Flineous the Blue Cat alien.

    Don’t think you can whip off your left hand and be rid of Jabby. That’s just the part that talks and blasts and draws attention. His mind would be elsewhere or everywhere.

    Went all the way back to the 09/19/2016 strip just to recall what Jabby’s original form was.

    Oh, and Chris, you haven’t actually made either of the two corrections that were pointed out for the 09/19/2016 strip.

    And he got Skywalker-ed! Well given that he saved the universe from a planetdestroying thing that was disguised as Moon and has trouble with his dark idiotball side (Jabby) it somehow fits!

    Jabby can reconstruct, HAS reconstructed Mauricio as a cyberorganism, largely artificial.

    And yet he did not change Mauricio’s personality or his pacifism, though it would make his “job” — however Jabby might define that — a good deal easier.

    Never mind “Luke, I am your father”. This is more in common with Darth Vader pushing up the Stormtrooper’s blaster as he was about to shoot the rampaging Chewbacca. Only Leia caught the motion or its implications. Though she, too, didn’t know what to make of it at the time.

    RIP Klypt, we barely got to know you. And what a relief that is!

    Such a character Wezzle is! Wasn’t afraid to push it with Jabby and then, despite Klypt’s sadistic cruelty, Wezzle wasn’t afraid to insult her (though I had trouble thinking of Klypt as female). With those eyes of his, it’s impossible to judge whether events shocks and horrifies him or if he’s instead, totally nonchalant. However he feels, I’m not sure if having Wezzle on your side is a good thing or if it’s better to be as many lightyears as possible away from him. You’re stuck with him now, Mauricio, as long as Jabby’s part of you and useful to Wezzle.

    As a general rule of thumb, if you have to get a hand cut off to realize you’re a cybernetic human, then you’re probably a pretty decently designed cybernetic human.

    At least a 9 on the R. Daneel scale.

    Now he has the disturbing image that the organic bits may be fake. And that he is all machine and no organic matter. That is a shocking revelation. That and having his right hand sheared off by a force lash. I wonder if he feels pain?

    Has he eaten, or drank anything? Slept? He may have other anvil to dodge as he rethinks his person. Is his personality real or just copied with modifications by Jabby? Does he even feel fear?

      It has been established that Jabby can’t survive if Mauricio were dead, and Mauricio would have to be dead if Jabby replaced him.

      Unless someone lied.

      Or… Does Jabby die if Mauricia *dies*, or if they’re separated? Jabby may be animating Mauricio’s dead body…
