Le scénariste J.M. Straczynski et le dessinateur Pete Woods travaillent actuellement sur une nouvelle maxi-série Terminator intitulée “The Final Battle” pour l’éditeur Dark Horse.
L’histoire, en 12 numéros, se situe après les évènements du quatrième film (Terminator: Renaissance). John Conner est maintenant le chef incontesté de la rébellion dans la guerre qui les oppose à Skynet.
[quote]From birth, humans grow from the need for base survival to more complex needs, to self-awareness and self-identity. Similarly, Skynet has grown from base survival and self-awareness to more complex needs and, most importantly, a more complex system of understanding the world and itself. Skynet evolved in this fashion in order to adapt to its enemy, humans, who are a massively complex and infinitely adaptable species. The change from the Terminator seen in the first time to the T1000 and later models demonstrates Skynet adapting, learning how to make its machines more human in action and appearance. The more a Terminator can think like a human and act like a human, learning from its enemy, the better it becomes at infiltration and termination. We saw that demonstrated clearly in “T2,” in which the Terminator began to learn from the humans around it, gradually developing something resembling emotion and true awareness. “I know now why you cry.”
The question then becomes, where does this lead? What is the end result of Skynet trying to fight us – by becoming us?[/quote]
