Persistence of Aeons : LUSENET : Aeon Flux : One Thread

I was stuck in Newark International Airport on Saturday and I fell to perusing my copy of the Herodotus file. Here's an interesting little point: in a blood analysis report on Aeon, her blood data matches almost exactly with a scab from a male triplet... Gets me thinking.

About Aeon's many deaths and rebirths - has anyone considered the possibility that there is, in fact, a Flux family? A large set of identical sisters, say octuplets. All with the same looks, skills, and interests. Perhaps even all sharing one persona: Aeon Flux. I like the idea. Anyone else?

It's a really cool idea, yes. The episode "A Last Time for Everything" got me thinking about something like this. And you do realize why Aeon's blood analysis says that, don't you? It's because the scab wasn't hers. It belonged to the three Creem brothers she murdered as per Trevor's orders.

As Mat said, the scab was not hers. And maybe I'm the only person who thinks this but, I don't like the idea of there being multiple Fons. The second Fon is enough for me.

I think Aeon's deaths in the shorts were just a kind or running theme, kinda like Kenny in Southpark. When you watched liquid T.V. you wanted to see how Aeon would snuff it at the end. In the episodes they use a "Simpsons" approach to writing. The events that occured in the previous episodes bear no consequence on the current episode. This way Aeon is a purely charachter driven story and not plot driven. The purpose of the episodes is to explore the fascinating personalities of Aeon and Trevor. It's as if the episodes are like experiments. Allowing the writer to put Aeon and Trevor in any situation for examination and (psychological) dissection without affecting them for the next episode. Then again what do I know.

Out of curiosity, when did the Simpsons first appear? Was it pre-Aeon (i.e. before '91)?

-- Philip Mills (, May 20, 1999.

The Simpsons premiered as a segment on the Tracy Ulman Show, back in 1986 or 87. The actual series preimered in 1988 or 89.
