eyeballsarchive replied to your post“putnamspuppeteer asked pnattheories: If Max isn’t possessed, then…”Yo dude, Doorman never says that’s the power of the spirit controlling Max? I mean yeah “Arrogance. Your power is nothing to be afraid of. Riddles and word games.” could be interpreted as meaning that that was the spirit in question’s power, but that’s not how it should be interpreted.But he also says their power is “riddles and wordgames”, and Scrapdragon seems to just have magnet powers, especially considering that spirit connection thing had a lot of metal in it, and the others we’ve seen seem to be similar to a spirit’s powersWhat Doorman is doing is calling what Scrapdragon is saying in that circumstance “riddles and word games”.I mean I could be wrong? I was in the “Max has timestop powers” camp until chapter 3, page 17, but after that I held firmly onto magnet powers until it was revealed clearly to be true. I’m not going to change my mind until the story itself proves me wrong.Anyway as I said, it doesn’t feel right in the context of the story that Max would have two spirits. Both of Spender’s spirits are present in his mindscape on this page, but Scrapdragon is alone in his first and so far only full appearance.
But apparently the riddles are something to be protected from. I don’t think it works as evidence to say how it should be interpreted, since neither of us know for sure. But you’re definitely right on there only being Scrapdragon in the connection, sorry I missed that. (Is the possibility of it being something that just possessed him for the moment out of the question?)
