For the most part I have to give Cornell credit -- his plan is not without merit and could, in theory, actually work. I just don't know that his motivations are all there.

This comic also plays up the "Cornell Craziness". This will continue to reverb through the comic.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
