All donations go toward getting the comic into print.

Every time I reach $20, I'll draw an additional page to post for the week.

And don't worry: the reason he won't give his technology to Tom isn't the cliche "humanity will use it wrong" thing.
It's actually much more simple.

Seems that Jupiter isn't to keen on having people rummaging in his guts which dont really know what they're doing. And even if its successful, he still loses his shield, since reverse engineering involves taking apart things like these, and even then it isnt sure they understand enough to replicate the tech. So... risking your own life and/or survability for a crapshoot? I certainly wouldn't do that, even if it could potentially help a lot of people. If this is the case, i could perfectly relate to Jupiter here.

It's kind of like asking someone to donate a liver or lung while they're still alive, isn't it?

Gotta say "humanity would use it wrong" seems like a valid reason to me. He's been around long enough surely he knows that if humans can use it to harm, they will. Even if they literally were only able to make shields out of it, it would spur the development of more powerful, shieldbusting weapons. So in the end it would only have made weapons more powerful and he would surely end up dying.

@artificer urza: That's a good analogy!

@nunya: Yes, but Jupiter's also been around long enough to know that humans also use advances in technology for good. With the type of energy Jupiter uses, humans could ditch archaic power sources and the like.
Bad comes with the good and vice versa. :)
