So I just got the Doppleganger pack (I decided to go with Lady Hammerlock first) and I realized something interesting about the gender dynamic in TPS; all the women are natural and all the men are artificial.
Athena-Atlas assasin, trained from childhood to be an utterly lethal opponent.
Nisha - An outlaw who spends her time hunting down outlaws
Lady Aurelia - Highborn, obscenely wealthy and murderous.
All of these women are natural, self made without augmentation. they are badasses because their training, background and skill sets make them badasses.
Wilhelm: A man obsessed with improving himself with cybernetic enhancements, probably bordering on Technophilia.
FR4G-TP: a robot programmed to be a soldier.
Jack’s Body Double: a guy with Student loans who attempts to inhabit the persona of Handsome Jack.
Each one of the male characters is “false” in some way, Wilhelm is throwing away his humanity as fast as he can, becoming a true cyborg, FR4G-TP will never be more than he is programmed to be and “Jack,” is just pretending to be someone else.
I find this very interesting. Anyone else have any thoughts.
