Do you think Handsome Jack ever was a good guy?
*takes a deep breath and nods a bit* I do.
I really do think he started out with good intentions and just lost his way. There is still a lot missing from his back story, even with what TPS filled in. We don’t know what happened with his wife or when he started experimenting on Angel, ect.
Gah, see this is what really upsets me. I like, sorta blame Lilith and Moxxi for doing what they did to him in TPS. Yes, he was starting to spiral down but instead of betraying him, (like, he straight up trusted them, maybe even considered them his friends???) they could have helped him. Taken him under their wings and showed them the vault hunter way. I really think that they created the Handsome Jack we knew in Borderlands 2.
I’m not saying he was a saint. His methods were unorthodox and a little crazy at times, but I really do think he wanted to help and just got pushed one too many times ): it makes me really sad. I know he was a bad guy, but I don’t think he was always that way. I believe he was good at some point. Just when it really mattered, that Jack was gone, replaced with a baddie.
