Maybe it is more intelligent than we thought.
But maybe the film is as some of us thought "only" popcorn with a 100% evil villain and they just use the Comic to create a more complex background for the more demanding fans, so that these fans are satisfied and can accept the absolute evil Nero of STXI.
And if tyrants take me, And throw me in prison, My thoughts will burst free, Like blossoms in season.
Foundations will crumble, The structure will tumble, And free men will cry:
Thoughts are free!
