>>111435748>Except he was evil before it happened and stayed evil after it happened.
Something happened that gave him pause in his direction, just as with Catra. And as with Catra, the perceived betrayal involved caused him to stay his course and double down. That said, Catra didn't go seriously bad until the Shadow Weaver thing.>Catra didn't design her personality, but she made her choices.
Yes, you're right. But people's choices are influenced by how they've been raised. Catra obviously doesn't have zero responsibility, but the point with her - and with Hordak - is that the need for validation from an abusive system can be overpoweringly strong.>Hordak didn't chose his personality either, but the point is that his choices didn't actually impact him directly.
Of course they fucking did. He could have chosen never to even start the Horde, to just have a new life on Etheria. It wasn't random chance that this didn't work out - we all know that Prime would NEVER have accepted him back and given him the praise he desired.>Even in the current season she "loses" to Glimmer yet pulls a nuke out of her ass and then runs away unscathed
Oh shit, the bad guy gets away? Fucking wowza. It's almost like there needs to be a story. She fucking lost dude, getting away is not a mighty feat.>Actually both times she's beaten Hordak he was the strongest he's been since season 1.
As soon as you get that crystal off him, he's weak as fuck. The only person Catra consistently beats is a guy on life support, by ripping away said life support.
Put your hateboner away and rewatch the show.
