From the Reactions forum for today (7/17):

Yeah, but after that we never see Anthony again. Hard to say. I'm not sure why hC would list him as dead if they pulled him out and kept him -- since they'd want both him and his sister, and they'd have no tactical reason (that we know yet) for pretending he's dead in their records.


Y'know, if MM was inside HeretiCorp, he may have managed to falsify their records to get himself declared dead. That is one of his specialties, scrubbing data to make minions (and presumably himself if needed) disappear. Why? If they were keeping a tight rein on Izzy, perhaps he might try to seek support against hC to rescue her.

If he runs into Torg (his "best minion") then that'd be nifty! Plus there's the interaction he'd have with Riff ("Don't Doubt My Scienceness!") and, eventually, Riff meeting Izzy.

I'm speccing this just because I like MM and wouldn't mind seeing him again.

It seems that the data-scrubbing was done by Izzy, working with Hereti-Corp. Last time we saw poor Anthony he was in critical condition, very unstable, and about to be moved.....they may have good medtech but he was very fragile. He was pretty awesome, but I'm willing to write him off as a casualty of Bestseid.

And you forget what happened right after the Izzy call for med-evac:
A job resignation from the Strawman.

Many deads, so if MM+Izzy were at the hC base, easy for them to die.
And easy to fake a death in the chaos.

Here is my spec...

I think that he's alive. I think that Izzy bargained to get him to a medical facility and then changed their records to show that he died in care. But he didn't, and, in fact, recovered fully and was released. MM is out - and safe. The price: Izzy is stuck working for hC. If that is the case, then she's either still in touch with her brother and working as a mole; or probably mostly helping them, with underhanded sabotage when she can get away with it, and waiting for MM to extract her... ...Enter Torg et al.....

Caveat: I suck at spec, so the opposite of the above is what really happens...

Actually, that makes a good deal of sense. Not to say that Pete will go in that direction, but Izzy's the most sensible choice for "insider who decided to fake MM's death" -- and she's also well qualified to hack the records.

MM is not even needed anymore. It was revealed that Izzy+Torg did all the work, MM was allways just the face of the operations.

Izzy did a lot of computer work, and is a bona fide genius, but.....she relied on Hereti-Corp for a lot of it. I'm just not sure they'd let Anthony slip through their fingers once they had the pair of them.

There is a possibility that MM faked it through or is running an alias now either

Well, I'll be... The image of Izzy in a cell with a computer in front of her... Apparently that part of my spec is actually right! <shock!> :kiki:
Now, I hope that we'll find that I was also right about Anthony.

Yes, she's being forced to work for HC, but kept a prisoner.

She designed the battle-net HC Agent Drake used to co-ordinate the attack on Chrushestro Inc.

LOL! That would explain why my spec is actually correct - it already happened, I just didn't remember reading it (or transcribing it - :-P). Oh well. That does not bode well for Anthony, then........

I just re-read 4U red. So much going on in that chapter, relating to everything at the same time.
Like the fact that Old-Riff killed Izzy's brother AKA Minion Master.

If that should happen in Sluggy Prime, he must be alive for now.
