This post is Aeon Flux based : LUSENET : Aeon Flux : One Thread

Remember in "A Last Time For Everything" the fella in the begining says, "I thought you might do with a more current version of myself.". What do you suppose his motives were? Could it be a plot, or just shame over his copies refusal to get near underthings. Moreover what do you suppose Trevors fears of taking another sample from this man are, other than the out of pocket expense of property rights?

If this has been talked at extensively before please direct me to a earlier post, if you know the name.

I think the man's motives were just to cover up his earlier hangups with a new version. Trevor doesn't have fears concerning the issue, it's just a simple difference of opinion between the two. The man claims the duplicates to be his genetic property, and demands that he have the right to "donate" a better version, while Trevor, according to his speeches throughout the episode, believes in the freedom of the genome. He believes, as usual, that he is doing a service for humanity, and how dare they tell him that one version of a person is better than another!

I really like, that answer. I'm also glad to see the recent "deviant" posts were removed.

Isn't it nice that Chaos comes down from his ivory DSL. to give us order, and endow our lives with meaning.

Behold the power of the mighty sword of Chaos Knight.

The question is; why did Trevor pick this guy to copy as he had as he put it; 'severe inhibition to pleasure response' I imagine Trevor was aware of this prior to picking this man for the copy. What was he planning?

-- Barb e. (, March 03, 2001.

This is something I've never though, to think about before. Perhaps a man is a better soldier if he ignores his particular feelings? These clones won't be kissing Aeons feet.

Actually, it's a 10 megabit cablemodem. But why split hairs (especially since it's only that fast if you're getting something from the provider itself.)

And the guy who was cowering from the swinging panties? Well, as Trevor mentioned, he had everything he needed. And as the clones had dragged away the original man, it was obvious they were some kind of enforcer. For that task, the clones were well suited. Trevor really didn't care about guy's sexual inhibitions, just how effective of soldier he would be. Although, this would prove to be a big disadvantage if Aeon used her talents one of them, and then clone woudl be reduced to quivering in the fetal position.

Hey now, thats good cowering from swinging panties. He would be crippeled by Aeon. Unless he has a odd sexuality, maybe Aeon wouldn't be as scary as frilly underthingies.

Cable would be a trip for me man I got a 33.6. Sad isn't it.

More - Why does Trevor employ flawed enforcers, Twicker, fatboy, the other guy, and this guy. They all got problems man, eating disorder, phycosis, Jackass. What is Trevors modivation for surrounding himself with such easily killed, and incomplete underlings.

I was watching dexter's laboratory the other day, and it was an ep with blue falcon and his side kick a dog(can't think of his name), at the end falcon says to dexter that if you have a stupid etc side kick, it makes the hero look better. Now with trevor perhaps he surrounds himself with these ppl for the fact that it makes him look superior to the common man. I notice that trevors soliders can get the job done, but when envolved with aeon, they fail miserable, maybe unconsciously trevor wants aeon to win so he can have personal meetings with her, so his men fail and he is "forced to do the job himself".

The Blue Falcon? Wow, talk about a blast from the past.

The Blue Falcon's sidekick is Dynomutt. Actually, that was the title of the show, Scooby Doo and Dynomutt hour...

Oh, the Falcon Flash is alerting me to trouble. I must go!

BTW; I don't mind off topic posts, but that other stuff...?...anyhow, about those 3 guys that were in maybe two episodes; they were pretty interesting of a little group. The voices and all were great. 'Low brow' types for sure, they added an interesting dimension to the show, kind of like Trevor using 'thugs' to do the grunt work, and it does make you think it may be because he's more comfortable ordering them around. They gave me the impression of a sub-culture.

Sub-culture, like bounty hunters? Voices for those 3 are very good, Twicker especialy "Take it easy!". This might be alittle strange to you but, I always thought of these 3 as Trevors way around official channels. Sort of how Darth Vader had power with out a military rank. These 3 stoges are like Trevors, right, left and middle hand. They almost seem brilliant at times, "look it ain't got no mouth!", completely untaken by seeing something unfamiliar.

Did you ever see the Dextors Lab where he fired Dee Dee?

-- (, March 04, 2001.

The fool who donated his genetic information came back to Trevor's lab for another motive... possibly to get into Trevor's circle, maybe he had a crush on Trevor. This guy doesn't offer the "more current version" of himself until after seeing his clones undergoing mechanically silly and tortuous behavior. It must be very unnerving, seeing copies of yourself flailing at tests and shuddering away from frilly, pink, panties.

I think his new offer of a "current version" with an "improved attitude" is a way of acknowledging his inferior make-up while saving trying to save some face--No, really, I am much better than this-

Trevor reminds me of a German scientist during WWII with his experiments. He is beyond God in this episode... make that any other episode.

You know a weird thought just occurred to me, what if those panties belonged to Aeon, and what if he isn't shuddering at the panties,, but the memories they conjure up?

-- Barb e. (, March 07, 2001.

It is a long shot, but it is true if you believe it to be so
