But now we pick pick

Why are Penny's dying words, "Captain Hammer will save us."
Is it just Joss pouring salt into the wound?
- Possibly. He does like to do that. Or it could be that she was disoriented (because of the dying) and said something that flitted across her mind, no matter how little sense it made. Or she was in denial of what had happened and scared and wanted to feel like she did back when she thought Billy was her innocent friend and Captain Hammer was an awesome hero. Also, pretty sure you don't have to spoiler stuff on a Headscratchers page, since they're specifically for discussing plot points of the media in question.
- I got the impression that that line was part of his original story concept. It's there because the rest of the story was built around it.
If Captain Hammer looks down on anyone showing signs of intelligence or creativity, how in the world would he
know how to defuse a bomb? I mean, does he take the Guile approach
and just use violence to solve the problem?
