I couldn’t quote the first part cos of the spoilers, but there’s more officers than just the ones you killed. There’s the ones that are still in the warehouse as well as the ones who left to go fight the gangs, if anything after everything went down, the officers would’ve called for reinforcements by then.
And you do make a great point, but Reese is unconscious when she’s captured so you’ll be doing all the heavy lifting. And though absolute darkness is a great power in almost any situation. With your current energy level, you’d have to maintain the darkness, grab and support Reese, and then use more energy to take out the cops and heroes who (because they’re mutants) have higher resistance and would a bit more pounding to incapacitate. And if you did kill the officers, then you’d have seen that simply doing that and maintaining the darkness was already detrimental to your health.
Did that make sense?
I hope this also doesn’t sound like I’m arguing with you or trying to prove you wrong, if anything I like the fact that you brought this all up because it makes me think through it and change what needs to be changed.
