    Default Mac question

    Does Mac still have his computer like mind? I don't remember if he does or not.

    I'd take it as read that he still has the Borg implants, but they are controlled by Macs personna now so he has a less mechanical manner.

    Fiorello: Well, I don't know about that...
    Driftwood: Now what's the matter?
    Fiorello: I no like-a the second party, either.
    Driftwood: Well, you should've come to the first party. We didn't get home 'til around four in the morning... I was blind for three days!

    See wasn't sure if the Master erased that from him. That way is plausible

    You could have a point there. Although I'm sure theirs a pic of Mac in vol 2, he's lying in the snow just as Sas finds him, I'm think he still has the implants.

    Considering when the young Mac clone was explaining how he had been "de-aged" the reasoning was to get rid of all the alien technology in his body. So there must have still been the tech in him at that point, so the Master didn't get rid of it.

    I didn't mean eliminate the entire cyborgnetic components, just wanted to know if he still had a computer like mind. He really hasn't shown it again, and when he got his emotions back I just wasn't sure. I'm postivie he still has forms of alien technology still in him, but does he have the mind?

    Is he even really Mac? I mean there was that whole Vol 2 flashback story with Wolverine stabbing him and the Dept H people making him sign something so they could clone him a new body, then in the AF series(issue 12)he was blown up by his suit, sent across space and time, mucked around physically by the Qwrrln(sp?) and then mucked around even more by the Master, then he was cloned by Dept H more(making the younger Mac clone) and then dumped in the arctic....Is Mac even really Mac anymore?

    That is the question I'd like answered. Imagine if the answer was no(it's pretty freaky to think about)...who and what is he now?

    You're right, Dana. that'd be something worth investigating. we've never had any REAL explaination - from a credible sourse - that the Mac who returned was the REAL Mac...

    Technically...the way it was written by Seagal, even Byrne's Mac is suspect(since Mac's "death" by Wolverine's claws was many years ago, before AF was truly finished in it's creation). I hate retcons like that.

    This is one of the few ret-cons that fit (to me). It connects to James remembering how quick Wolverine is in UXM# 109. The idea of multiple clones, particularly of James and Cody, is plausible. At least I can suspend disbelief in favor of the idea. Yeah, yeah it dove-tails into what I would like to do with the team, but I read the post/blurb for the upcoming New Avengers that's going to have AF in it, and none of us may have a chance to do anything with them!

    Hope this isn't the absolute end of AF.
