I mean, hell, if I was in Mina's position, I'd probably react a lot worse- like accusing Sally of trying to cover up for Nicole or something. Give the girl credit for knowing she messed up and helping Nicole be accepted again later on. She just wanted to do what was best- she's a better person than I'd probably be.
YES YES YES THIS
She could have pretended not to care about what she did, or join the other citizens in their pretty blatant (Naugus-fueled) hate over Nicole, but she didn’t. She doesn’t press the issue again after that, even though the FF clearly think otherwise (Sally’s ‘UH-OH ASH AND MINA ARE HERE’ line in 222 and the FF stationed at her next concert kinda… shows that they think she’s intentionally trying to rile the people up), and she straight up WALKS OUT ON DINNER when the customers badger Sonic and Sally about what to do with Nicole. She could have sided with them, become a pack leader and ganged up on the two, but… she didn’t. Because MINA ISN’T THAT KIND OF PERSON AND IT’S NOT WHAT SHE WANTS. SHE STRAIGHT UP SAYS THAT THIS WASN’T WHAT HER MUSIC INTENDED TO DO
Mina may not make the best decisions (because all the justification aside, it still was a pretty dumb thing to do for her image), but she OWNS THEM and tries to fix them, even if it involves outright nightmares and PTSD and trauma on her end
like seriously WHY DIDN’T THE FF TAKE OWNERSHIP OF THAT, THEIR CITIZENS WERE MENTALLY AND EMOTIONALLY TRAUMATIZED AND YET THEY GET ANGRY AT THEM FOR BEING AFRAID OF THE AI WHO DID IT
not to mention, mina was right
SHE WAS RIGHT
ABSOLUTELY, 1000% RIGHT
Like… look what wound up happening after the whole Naugus/Genesis thing came to a head— half of the FF got taken out of commission, the city starts falling apart thanks to Naugus’ crystal magic and the Babylon Rogue’s attacks and FUCKING TAILS DOLL
and it’s only THEN they decide to form two teams because they realize that leaving the city unguarded while they chase after Eggman is a dumb idea
it’s not like MINA DIDN’T SUGGEST JUST THAT VIA SONG FIFTEEN ISSUES AGO
and seriously, having a city made of nanites, while a good temporary solution after the destruction Eggman caused, is kind of a horrible idea due to the amount of WAYS it can be corrupted or destroyed or tampered with, even if there’s a sentient AI at the helm (especially so if she ever gets upset or holds a grudge against someone)
but nope, Mina’s a bully because she dares to point out the valid holes in how the FF work
I mean, at least Sally showed some understanding about what Mina was trying to do and remorse about the fiasco afterwards, but Sonic
dude you’re kind of a dick
shadowofthelamp replied to your post “People who want to kill Mina because she ‘made Nicole cry’ … I’m…”
221 was my entry issue and I knew absolutely nothing about what was going on (or who Mina was) and I could tell right away that A: As soon as Sal said what happened Mina rethought her actions and B: Nagus was influencing people to be cruel like that.
Like… look at Mina’s face in those last two panels. That’s not a face of someone who knows what they did and is proud of it— she’s genuinely shocked and ill at ease with that bombshell Sally dropped on her, and you can see in the next issue and the one after that HURTING NICOLE WAS NOT HER INTENTION, she just wanted New Mobotropolis to be more self-sufficent and able to defend itself on it’s own without being so dependent on the FF and an easily hackable AI
… of course, Naugus’ influence made her a little more angrier and venomous than usual, and those who aren’t taking that into consideration just go OH WELL SHE’S A SHORT SIGHTED BITCH WHO’S MEAN TO NICOLE BOOO when…… that is not the case WHATSOEVER
People who want to kill Mina because she ‘made Nicole cry’
… I’m sorry, but did we completely miss the fact that Mina didn’t do that on purpose? That she was shocked and ashamed when Sally told her Nicole was in the audience?? That, despite the legitimate fears and concerns about a single AI controlling a city, squashes them down to go and APOLOGIZE to her??? WHEN SHE IS IN EXILE AND NO ONE SHOULD BE THERE???? AND SHE ADMITS HER MISTAKE AND NICOLE FORGIVES HER????? AND MINA USES HER INFLUENCE TO GET THE CITY TO ACCEPT NICOLE AGAIN????????????????
but nah, let’s just stab the bitch because it upset Nicole, that’s totes cool
