Ex Machina is a compelling science fiction that is really hard to understand. To be honest, I read this comic twice in order to get the sense of the story. The only thing that really help me get a better comprehension is the flashback and the facial expressions of the characters. In the beginning, I perceived that the protagonist know as Mitchell Hundred was very disheartening after the 9/11 event because he failed the first first plane from destroying the other skyscraper. Mitchell was very terrifying , upset and decide to retire to became a new mayor of New York City. This is why it is very complicated to understand this comic novel .First of all he was a super-hero that controlled any kind of machines and devices and second, he became the mayor of the city by helping the civilians with his political solutions. The reason why his life is very complex because when he was a hero , the commissioner Angotti thought that the great machine was not a hero but a vigilante that also hurt innocent people. Other scene like the snowplow driver who was assassinated and the offensive exhibit in the museum, got me really confused until I got some specific details to open my mind. In my opinion, I think Mitchell Hundred used to have some personal problem with black people. There was this part when Mitchell memorized his childhood about his mother getting raped and killed by a black guy. As Mitchell grew older, he found the murderer, tortured and inadvertently insulted him with the word NIGGER. To be honest, I think it’s a fascinated story and it will be even better if they give more details about the killer know as the young kid and the appalling museums.
