Now that is a cool weapon.
Furthermore, it is a mad scientist’s weapon. As the author puts it – “a gun which pretty much requires the wielder to say ‘Bwa ha ha ha ha ha.'”
It should be noted, however, that Benjamin is not doing just that.
A Miracle of Science is one of my favorite webcomics. As with certain other popular strips, mad science is fun.
We have the main hero, who has been struggling as a recovering user of mad science – and here we find him putting together a ball lightning gun from a variety of spare parts.
Is he returning to his weakness? Is he transcending it and putting that skill to greater use?
Dude, like I care? Ball Lightning Gun, man! Is that not awesome? I say it’s awesome.
And yeah, I’m definitely in it for the story.
But still. Ball lightning gun. Wicked.
