I’ve been chitchatting with my coworkers about the new Samurai Jack season, and a lot of ‘em seem surprised that he’s got a minigun.
I dunno, man, I think that’s PERFECTLY IN-CHARACTER for Jack. His whole deal is, like, he’s supposed to be the world’s greatest warrior, versed in every kind of fighting technique there is, right? Gotta be ready for anything and everything. Of course he’d be willing to to pick up whatever weapon is available to him – whatever it takes, he’ll use it. It’s not like he hasn’t used guns in the original series. A common move of his was to take the guns wielded by his foes, still held in their hands, and aim that at his other enemies.
Jack’s a wily little ruthless bastard when fighting. I’m stoked to see him with a minigun.
