Gralian:
Ew. Lower lip. Remove it.

I appreciate it's not as obtrusive as usual this week, but it's still there, and it's like ugly facial hair that won't go away and damnit i'm going to keep bringing it up and protesting it until it does.

Fun comic as always, but i never got the popularity behind Garrus. Perhaps because i never really used him in either game. He always struck me as a bit of a cowboy that was too big for his britches.

you dont like women with lower lips? if you ever romance someone, will you force her to undergo painful lower lip removal surgery?

Weresquirrel:
Maybe he'll be a Space-Highlander.

yeah, and Bioware will even add fucking Zeist to mine on

Tank207:
Mordin would not recommend this action.

I always love how Mordin has inter-species sex pamphlets and videos ready to be forwarded at a moments notice

AMAZED:
I wouldn't call him batman because he kinda wanted to murder everyone who crossed him.

Well if you're Paragon, he's Batman. If you're Renegade, he's more like the Punisher.

Legion:

Grey Carter:
"Where exactly can he go from there?

L3m0n_L1m3:
And then it turns out Shepard is Garrus in Mass Effect 3.

Damn, you beat me to it.

Arachon:
Isn't it obvious?

YYYEEESSSS

i hope that my squad members get another loyalty mission and that your choices in the other games and the choices in the loyalty mission itself will decide what kind of badass garrus will be.
i wonder more about what kind of badass my shepherd will be. in the mass effect 1 he was a strong but nice soldier who needed his squad to survive in mass effect 2 he was still nice but he was overpowerd thanks to adrenaline rush.i think in mass effect 3 he powers his adrenaline rush up to a level where he moves as fast as the flash.i would pay for a flash costume in mass effect 3.

CM156:
There is but only one way left to go then beyond Batman

Haha, i knew who you were talking about even before i opened the image. :D

I like the ME2 verison of garrus more, he's sarcastic and throws some good jokes here and there.

"Garrus Journal: October 12th, 2185. Vorcha carcass in alley this morning, tire tread on burst stomach. This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their asari sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the dancers and council members will look up and shout "Save us!"... and I'll whisper "Can this wait? I'm in the middle of some calibrations."

Holy shit I lol'd. That's amazing.

Thanks.
Also Garrus-Jesus: "Never saw my second coming"
Garschach: "Commander Shepard, possibly into turians, must investigate further"

Tank207:

Boba Frag:
Man, everyone wants to get down and give Garrus head these days.... lol

Mordin would not recommend this action.

Oh, I laughed long and hard at that one....

"So don't... *ahem* ingest" gets me every time.

I don't usually play as a female Shepard, so when I first saw this it made me admire Bioware's writing all the more.

Gotta love Mordin's dry wit :D
(although he can supply ointments to assist with any chafing that can occur)

Maybe he can join Ashley in becoming a prostitute?

Or may be he becomes a nerd (complete with pocket protector) to better do his calibrations.

HankMan:
Specter, he's earned it by now.

Ok that's the stu.... actually that's probably the most logical thing you've ever said.

Besides, there are at least 3 dead Spectres from the first 2 games, so there probably a need for them.

James Bond? Although I don't really see that as an improvement to Batman but what are going to do, eh.

An amalgam of Bond, The Terminator, Batman, Indiana Jones, The Doctor, Neo and Dirty Harry. Oh and Rorshach. Minus the dying.

Captcha = Mudic nguipl (what)

Arachon:
Isn't it obvious?

HOLY SHAMOLEY!!! :O

*eyes tear up from the greatness of clint eastwood* T^T so awesome

Well... it's not like the game hinges on him getting exponentially more badass between games...

Canadish:
Hey guys, nice thread and all, but...can it wait a bit? I'm in the middle of some calibrations.

Garrus' voice is in my head now with that line. It's beautiful.

Fr]anc[is:
Implying he needs to go anywhere?

They should just go ahead and make him your 2nd in command, because there's no way in hell that unlikable sow Miranda was my 2nd

he does need to go somewhere!! He needs to become.....

DR. McNINJA!!!!

BOOM Universe Saved

Ghengis John:

But seriously, I agree on Tali, Tali is a little girl and frankly I don't get why people want to get under her suit. I always preferred to go after the actual, full grown women (If Miranda's not back I'll be pretty disappointed) and treat Tali like a little sister. As for the people's love of Garrus? You can't not like Garrus. He's a bad-ass with a heart of gold.

If only he'd finish with those calibrations though. I want to see a bit in Mass effect 3 where he announces "The calibrations are finished!" and something annihilates the enemy. As it does it's bloody work, or after it has he turns to Shepard and says "I think I could improve it with a few more calibrations".

I have to agree on all points here xD Tali really was a little sister the Commander saved and took care of, and naturally she'd develop a crush on the dashing space hero, but not a romance option I'd consider fitting (a bit like relations between Kaylee and the Cap'n :p)

and Garrus...well I've got nothing to add except I really hope BioWare concludes this epic side sorry of calibrations in Mass Effect 3 (basically if it doesn't factor in some form of awesomeness in the final battle...I will be very very disappointed)

I don't think he can go above batman....batman is the end all.

Arachon:
Isn't it obvious?

The man with no name. I love the reference. On Topic: Maybe garrus will be retconned, and suddenly remember that his parents were killed by guns, and he hates guns? Just like Batman, who originally carried guns, was?

Or maybe he will become Doctor Who.

simple

I'm not incredibly fond of the lower lip. It is fine in this one but in most issues it is freakishly huge.

Ghengis John:

Marowit:

Ghengis John:

Punisher is lamer than batman. Box office gross proves that.

That's what backslides means - I am saying that they'll be hard pressed to find a more badass inspiration than batman....

I know and I'm agreeing with you.

bah! These are the times I wish keyboards had a way to express intonation in the words typed.

*tip o' the hat* good sir

Highlander and Chuck Norris have already been mentioned, huh.

By the way, Erin looks incredibly good in this comic. Way better than before. -drools-
Kudos.

No harm done, and back at you. *Tip*

immovablemover:

TheKruzdawg:

I could see it going that way, although it would make me sad to see Garrus become the bad guy.

I think this is what would make it a memorable twist; It makes sense within the arc (or could happen without a giant U-turn) and it would have a demonstrable emotional impact on the player. Most people like Garrus, I know I do (I nearly creamed when I first saw him in ME2), so fighting against him would be, genuinely, difficult.

That's how I felt when I was on Virmire and I almost had to kill Wrex. I was so relieved that I had put enough points into Charm and was able to talk him down. I don't think I could have been able to handle losing 2 crew members in 1 mission (although I didn't know it at the time).

Daystar Clarion:
Turns out Garrus has a twin sister, who is just as awesome as Garrus, except, you know, you can have sex with her.

You can anyway, if you're a female Shephard.

I mean, I wish I could as a male Shephard, but still...

My pleasure...
Also that a Morrowind nick?

Or..you know...You can keep him as Batman. He was badass, why change him?

Terminator?

Well, since everyone's really just posting their personal idea of the next step up the Badass Ladder from Batman, I guess I'll just post this:

Good thing there won't be a Mass Effect 4, because you really can't get more badass then that.

I SECOND that motion!
Let It Be Done!!!

Yes someone other than me hates the lower lip! It's just to much in your face and I think its completely unneeded.
OT Me and Garrus are in one pretty awesome bromance. I feel bad knowing that I'm like everyone else though liking Tali and Garrus...

Obviously he gets his own game.
