That man in the first panel of this comic is surely not intended to resemble a director who was a cool guy in the nineties.
Have I mentioned that Tedd was intentionally something of a jerk early on? Because he was. Nowadays, he’d be a bit less quick to abandon the school to goo. At least, not with people still inside, though I did say the school might be empty… Huh. Maybe this would still be in character to some degree.
Elliot, on the other hand, is a big damn hero. He’d be helping get that goo even if he wasn’t Tedd’s lab partner.
