>>104919157>Literally what's the point of bringing back old characters just to erase them from existence?
Literally what's the point of being born if you're just going to die? Jack not going back wouldn't make the characters still be around forever. Even the postmortem spirit of Scotsman probably would've eventually stopped existing after whatever unfinished business he had was finished. Meanwhile what really matters with Jack going back is he can prevent thousands of years of torture, injustice, and suffering inflicted by a malevolent superpowered demon wizard's global dictatorship, including the very specific torture of Jack's family. Why would you leave your family to be tortured and slaved to death by your archenemy just so you could say you didn't "erase" the lives of people you met in the future? I don't understand how anyone could think that way. Them being "erased" would at absolute worst just be an incidental happenstance very indirectly related to Jack succeeding in the past, like trying to credit a butterfly flapping its wings with causing a hurricane in that popular imaginary example of chaos theory.>>104919057>cant FUCKING BELIEVE he dropped the "old jack goes to the final time portal" shit from the comic ending
Yeah, that was terrible. It made no sense at all to the point where he really should've just called this an entirely separate and unconnected continuity. Otherwise you have these higher powers putting in place this elaborate portal and guardian scheme that killed shitloads of innocent heroes over the years who weren't able to best said guardian, all for an absolutely impossible future (for starters, you could know it would be impossible very early on just by having the information that Jack was changed by the initial time travel and wouldn't age, something those higher powers / the portal should've had knowledge of given the entire arrangement was based on that time travel and Jack as the chosen one).
