True & Honest Fan
I think you're right. His sped armor protected him somewhat in school, but he expects the same allowances now. He's just smart enough to realize how people who don't know him view him, and he exploits this. The problem for him is that who he really is becomes readily apparent the instant he hits resistance which always happens.I wasn't calling you out exactly, just reminding people to keep things in perspective since we have little to go on before the Kill List in high school.
And one other thing to keep in mind is that most people in the Western World born after 1980 or so were raised with all kinds of PSAs, school assemblies, etc. teaching them that bullying is wrong, and society in general frowns deeply on anyone who isn't nice to tards. So he likely would have had his "tard shield" if he grew up anywhere in North America aside from some crime-filled slum.
