Btw what fragile worldview, though? It is rather funny to see capitalism making money on, uh, Marxism-like ideologies.
Monetizing rebellion is nothing new. Hell, once the Soviets stopped being silly after the first few years (after it dawned to them the hard way that unilaterally defaulting on your national debt is actually a terrible idea) they had no problems finding running dog capitalist foreign consultants to help bootstrap various parts of their industry in return of money for ex.
Okay this latest chapter is a little too on-the-nose for me - fighting an ice victim with fire.
I mean, Ice was Fire's weakness in Mega Man 1. And we have yet to see how well Teru has mastered her abilities.
Also there's high chance it more depends on who's will is stronger etc. Or they might be based on those crystals that rings create. Either way it's probably magic ice not inherently weaker compare to fire.
One whats with that world map? I get that it's looking down from the artic, but it doesn't look like earth at all XD; also, the artic is claimed by a country, a few to be exact: Canada, Denmark, Russia and the US; Canada and Russia having the most say.
