I do have one question: Why didn't she simply reassemble & reactivate the other fembot before going to going to deal with the guy?

We can assume it was too damaged. She could access the memory banks, but not put it back together.

Exactly. Also, I think for this reasoning, we think of them as advanced AI such that it becomes more of a personality, conciousnous, "robot soul" or whatever.

She may feel they are "dead" and that rebuilding them wouldn't be the same. Who knows.

Maybe trying to involve the whole 'creator' complex that we've had in Sinfest for years, by not having another character with that power? God with His hand-puppets, D with his minions of different types, and everything else?

Melvin's development? Become a "Doctor" to damaged Fembots?
I could see him simply starting out as a tinkerer, fixing up damaged goods. Then salvaging disposed models [like this one], before moving on to providing a service to the Sisterhood.

That'd be nice. All things considered, Melvin seems like he could have some fun development like that. He's already had some fairly "neutral" interactions with them from a techie standpoint. Even though Xanthe didn't trust him because of what he did, she didn't really condemn him either.

Of course, all we see her do is start walking up to the guy's house. We have no idea what if anything she intends to do to him. And Tat will almost certainly never tell us.

I wonder if Tat intends for the guy to be a specific bit player who's been seen before in other strips. He looks familiar.

Because she was really, really angry and felt a compelling need to act upon it? It's not as if she can't come back and fix the other bot later, if she wants to. Presuming that she knows how.

Scene: City Dump, a large pile of fem-bots

Character: Fury-Bot

Panel One, we see her standing in front of the Dump, seeing the piles,

Panel two. She goes in, picks up one of the torso's, claws already out ready to punish the person that did this to these robots.

Panel Three, the scene goes to a man and a fem-bot enjoying time together talking and laughing.

Panel Four, the two look to the right and we see a "KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK"

Panel Five, open door, Milton standing there with two other devil guys.

Panel Six. Milton hands the Man a paper, "Fem-bot recall, many reports of injury, programming error, must be taken off the market for public safety." Clearly can be read.

Panel Seven. The man tries to protect the fembot, getting between the fembot and the devil guys.

Panel Eight. Man is knocked aside.

Panel Nine, fembot is calling back for the man, distressed.

Panel ten, Milton is seen reaching toward her.

Panel 11, Black.

Panel 12. Fembot standing there, stairing at the fembots torso.

Panel 13. Fembot looks at the pile of fembot bodies.

Abuse is a horrible crime, and in real life, a man needs to be punished, but it's the law's job, not ours.

Abuse against Robots is a Sinfest verse problem, and since they aren't race, but a commodity, this is much more likely to happen than the end of robot abuse.

I await the flippant remarks I will get for this post, but if this shit was happening in reality, they would take that thing off the market and try to get rid of every copy that's currently out there.

Somebody's about to get owned.

Or the situation will be diffused before that happens. I think the man will be left sniffling in a corner, with his knees pulled up to his chest.

I really wish Tats were a bit more clear on how sentient fembots are. I also wish it would rain krugerands and supermodels. I suspect one is about as likely as the other.

Oh and Shadowcell: All internets are belong to you now.
