Mass Effect 2: Sole Survivor by higheternity Mass Effect 2: Sole Survivor by higheternity
Mass Effect 2 - Bioware

Anyway, going through my second playthrough with my Adept, Noah Shepard. Practical Paragon. Colonist and Sole Survivor.

Yeah.... given that Cerberus is responsible for one of the two highly traumatic events in his life, Noah isn't going to be all lovey-dovey with Cerberus.

I look forward to having him deny Cerberus information and resources throughout the game. I can just see him flipping the Illusive Man the bird at the end before he flies off with the Normandy...

tl;dr :

Akuze is a touchy subject to bring up, especially if you work for CERBERUS.

EDIT: Fixed a typo (hur hur, 'experment') and polished up the text bubbles. I didn't expect people to you know, see this (O_o)

More ME comics:

I didn't even choose that background and still had a vendetta...shooting people in the face is fun.

Damn I never even thought of that. Guess I'd make a good writer for BioWare... :lol:

Funny as shit. I wanted to kill them all anyway when I learned it was Cerberus. I also noticed Shepard doesn't actually ever mention anything Cerberus did in the first game either regardless of his background. No mention of Kahoku (spelling?) or anything like that.

*Laughs* My Vangard Bart Shepard agrees with Noah on this, then again he's sole survivor AND Spacer, so yeah he's very, very pro-alliance.
 I just started my first ME2 playthough, but I was kind of hoping for a moment like this, or one where Shepard goes to Anderson, and asks (or begs if it's a comedic fan comic) to rejoin the Alliance, or the "Hey! I just woke up from a coma a week/month/short-amount-of-time ago! It's not like I chose to wake up in a Cerberus lab!" when he talks to Kaiden come Horizon.
Any way, Brilliant comic.

I know right? I almost stopped playing after this scene, it's just incomprehensible to me that there's no option for a sole survivor to take another path.

That clearly is reason why you don't have permission to meet Illusion Man face to face

I always went with Earthborn. If I had gone through Akuze I would have probably started shooting the second I heard Cerberus. Any Cerberus operative around would only have survived long enough to provide info.

A flaw in the script.
