    What was the point of finding all that Australium if she could do it in an hour?
    I think she had a greater plan in store but the situation at hand got her to improvise.

    that's what i get for only reading the comic once.

    I still think it's his first name though, as those methods of referring to people aren't universal in meaning

    You gotta love how the comic actually referenced the Beta Badlands's original weapon wall model.

       sorta rushed this out so dont judge the shitty point outs

    I am calling this right now, at the very end:

       Sniper's mom's Rocket comes crashing down to Earth, killing the administrator in a ironic death (she died from a literal rocket of Austrialium after looking for it for so long) Of course the team and Pauling see this happen to her.

    Before this, she finally deals with the last remaining heir to Zachiarah Mann's will, Charles Darling, as her mother wanted to have the badlands/gravel fortune belong to Helen/The people, but it got jacked by the Mann brothers or Hale's dad.

    Darling would have taken Mann Co from Olivia in a Arm Wrestling competition or something along those lines.

    We finally see Scout kiss/get lesbian revealed by Pauling in this 
      

    If these things are not the case, I will shocked.

    It's gotta have something to do with Zephaniah. That's the only character I could think of that she had a meaningful connection with. Maybe she wanted to bring him back from the grave? Australium seems to do just about everything, so why not bring back people who've been dead for over a century?
    I still don't see why she wants to bring Zephaniah back, he was the one who gave Elizabeth (Grandmother/Mother?) his fortune, including the Australium he found.

       Maybe Redmond/Blutarch stole it from her with a contract, and Helen wants revenge on the one place where the fortune has gone?

       Maybe, but still odd. All I can get that it's "to settle an old debt" and something she got obsessed with when she was a little girl that she still graves for it, which I'm starting to believe, she is Elizabeth herself. Helen is probably a facade.

    no, they were gonna    open an orphanage so they could, i dunno, molest kids or farm their organs. pyro kinda interrupted before we got the full deets   

    i guess pyro is also a    kid lover cause he didn't want those little orphans being taken advantages of?? maybe he sees kids normally in his happy land

    I wonder if in the final comic they're going    to go to the moon now to get Australium and Valve will finally ship Asteroid (and Cactus Canyon)

       I thought the joke was that they were contemplating stopping being evil killing machines and starting a new life running an orphanage, then Pyro fucking scorched them to ashes.

    I think it's meant to mean that, but the fact it ends with    "an endless supply of free kids to-"     sort of makes me doubt it was wholly "good things".

       You're both right. The joke was supposed to be a double subversion of expectations. First you get the comedy of hardened mercenaries wanting to quit to start an orphanage, setting the expectation that they're actually good people. Then it follows up with the implication that the orphanage is a front for some sort of nefarious deeds, getting you a second time.

       okay but what possible nefarious things could you do "an endless supply of kids"? sounds an awful lot like a kid rape joke tbh, kinda off-putting for the silly comic with the big dumb guy who covers himself in honey and fights robots

    That's part of the joke. You don't know what they were planning, so your imagination has to fill it in.

    I dislike the overuse of deus ex machina (somewhat literally in scouts case) in the series, especially in this issue.

    Heavy comes out of nowhere to save soldier, scout, and pyro from the bear.

    Medic shoves animal organs into sniper to resuscitate him

    Medic shoves blood into everyone to resuscitate them.

    Scout lives because God says so

    Medic lives because he tricked Satan.

    Btw where the fuck did they get all the honey?

    Best Comic by far, worth the wait. The fact that Medic stole the other Team members souls is great.

    I am fully convinced now that the Last Issue will come alongside a gameplay Update with asteroid and the like to regain the last Australium. There were so many hints, and a finale to the Series should be an explosion.

    I also really like how they gave the TFC Mercs each some kind of, well, story. You had the Sniper and Engie's bond with the eye and even the Spy/Scout thing.

    Already a good start for TF2 this year.

    Well it's a funny comic, you can't expect drama or the death of main characters.

    Well, they are all slowly stripping down to nothing. So many lol.

    Next we'll get Cosmetics that remove all clothings from the characters in game.

       Also kind of curious as to why the TFC Heavy aged rapidly after they removed that machine from him. Does that device act as a parasite or something?

    There was some pretty good drama though. TF2 can be surprisingly dramatic and serious when given a chance.

    The 'story' comics have been really good at developing drama and a gripping plot, while also painting it full of dumb jokes that stay true to the soul of the characters/game.
