Quick energy. He doesn't plan on living forever.>>119916300>The Comedian is an asshole who's too cowardly to actually stop or reveal Ozy's plans
Not too cowardly. He realizes he is backed into a corner. More than most people he realizes how bad things really are... he just assumed nuclear war was inevitable.
And then Ozymandias was like "Humanity needs a slap in the face to steer them away from armageddon" and it was so cruel, so ruthless, yet so obviously (to him) the only possible Hail Mary it broke him.
Ozymandias showed, in one fell swoop, that he was a thousand times more terrible, more 'badass' than the Comedian - and that if humanity COULD be saved, this would be how to do it.
Blake knew Manhattan would not do it. Ozymandias punished him for his aloofness with banishment: if he did not care about humanity he should just leave.
Blake also knew Ozymandias was the 'smartest man on Earth', so it was pointless to try to second-guess him.
Blake did not believe in humanity, having always been an apex predator; Ozymandias punished him by showing him the ultimate outcome of that kind of thinking.
He was checkmated and it made him feel small, helpless, dirty and ugly.
It's messed up how feeble and pathetic Johns' and Lindelof's efforts are by comparison.
