** The evil corporation spends its resources on a working cure for a deadly disease but then sits on it and does nothing with it--not even to save the lives of their own loved ones who are suffering from the disease--making this a massive waste of capital on a project that seems to exist only make these people look like douchebags.

If they didn't want anybody to have a cure; they didn't need to make one or keep information about it on their computer mainframe.

* DudeNotFunny: We meet the biggest idiot in The [=LoTeks=]' faction in the middle of telling an odd story about trying to have sex with someone who has an unspecified "disability." It's intended to be amusing, but it mostly comes off as ''incredibly'' awkward for a number of reasons.

Added DiffLines:

** The bad guys looking to '''suppress''' the the data stored in Johnny's head[[note]]That they have no intention of using in any way themselves[[/note]] are, for some reason, bent on ''specifically'' cutting off Johnny's head and cryogenically freezing it so they can "extract" the data later. But if they have no intention of using the data and are even willing to let the head honcho's daughter (who could have been helped by the data) ''die'', rather than share it, why do they even bother to seek to keep it? [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim Just shoot Johnny in the head and be done with it.]]
** Johnny also gets the bright idea that the data in his head is "worth a lot of money," despite the fact that neither party that wants the data is in any position to either get any money or make any money from it; one side wants to suppress the data and let nobody have it (no money in that), and the other wants to give it away for free (no money made doing that, either). The only excuse would be if Johnny tried to sell it to a third party, like another drug company that ''would'' be willing to produce the cure for the public, but he just keeps going back to the bad guys expecting cooperation.

** The evil corporation spends millions if not billions on a cure for a deadly disease, but then sits on the research and in no way employs it. Unless the treatment was devised from the cure, which is never specified, then this was a massive waste of capitol on a project with no benefit that seems to exist only for the purpose of making these people look like douchebags.

** The evil corporation doesn't want the world (or even their loved ones) to have a cure for a fatal, epidemic disease, yet they bothered to make one for the hell of it, anyway.
