I legitimately wrote a 600 words long essay on this so I will put it under the cut
I've been thinking about any logical reason for why Korse didn't kill The fabulous four right in Na Na Na the whole day and what I realized is that contrary to popular belief I don't think that him helping destroy BL/ind was really out of character or some kind of redemption arc as it might seem. And before you all stone me or write me off as mentally done please let me try to explain myself.
So let's start from the beginning, Korse literally had the best chance to kill the fab four there and then, all of them lying unconscious on the ground right at his feet, it couldn't be easier. Even when he had them lined up in front of him just one good headshot could do it and considering how close they were, shooting them pretty much anywhere in the body would ensure that they won't pick themselves up ever again. So why were they able to waltz away completely uninjured?
The first thought that could cross your mind is that it's BL/ind's tactic and yeah at first I thought that too but why would BL/ind need to do that? Okay it's great way to scare the citizens when you say that the most feared Killjoys came into the city and killed who knows how many dracs and everyone will salute you for stopping such a threat. But! And this is a big ‘but!’, normal citizen probably doesn't really know what's going on outside of the walls so why not kill the Killjoys in the middle of the desert, throw the bodies in the trunk and wave them in everyone's face and you'll get the exact same result. Plus, you wouldn't risk the Killjoys actually somehow succeeding and hurting BL/ind or freeing the Girl as they actually did. So, to close this part I don't think that The fabulous four surviving the events of Na Na Na was part of BL/ind’s super evil plan but rather Korse not really personally caring that much or being invested enough to bother by killing them.
Now to the comics, in the beginning Korse was obviously happily carrying on with his job as an exterminator and except some small problems with lower body count nothing had really changed. He was still going around, shooting a killjoy here and there to get by except his tactic kind of stopped working but that’s not really our problem. The moment he snaped was when they killed his lover and there at that moment it got personal, suddenly BL/ind hurting people started affecting him too and it wasn’t just shooting random kids he’d never seen before, exactly there at the moment they hurt him too and that’s why he turned against BL/ind.
He spent years cooperating with BL/ind and doing what they wanted because it brought him a roof over his head, food and relative safety and that was good enough for him. And he would happily continue helping them if they hadn’t made it personal, from then on it wasn’t practical or useful in any way for him to live on their leash pretending to love them so he took the chance of a revolution already happening and just hoped onto the wave for an easy ride.
So in conclusion I’m not saying that Korse is a good person or that anyone should like him and definitely not that he’s a well written character, what I’m saying is that Korse is extremely selfish person and everything he’s done perfectly fits and plays into it, from not killing The fabulous killjoys straight away because it wouldn’t really bring him any profit straight to helping t destroy BL/ind.
Thank you for reading and I would love to hear you opinion.
And if you still think I'm out of my mind and want to stone me? Well is there really anything I can do to stop you? Probably not
