> The last we saw the Chief (‘Escalation’ issues #8-10), he had absolutely no qualms over the finality of Cortana’s death and was persuing other objectives alongside his Spartan-II teammates. There’s been absolutely nothing to suggest he’s off risking the lives of his team, and humanity at large, just to recreate a dead AI (who told him herself any kind of recreation would be a farce anyway). We also have absolutely zero evidence that Cortana survived the destruction of the Mantle’s Approach in any capacity whatsoever. We still have no idea why the Chief is missing, but “Forerunner stuff” is by far the more likely option as to what he’s seeking (if he’s actually looking for anything at all - again, we don’t know).
> Also you’ve got the entire first trilogy backwards. It’s always been MC saves humanity first and foremost, while hanging on to his AI helper when reasonably possible. ‘Halo 4’ also follows this pattern.
I think you didn’t get the joke about MC-Cortana relationship being the primary plot

> > Well Spartan Ops did show that the residents of New Phoenix were beamed to Requiem so your speculation is not without some merit.
> Actually no…the Composer stored the digitized essences of New Phoenix’s residents in the Composer’s Abyss, which is on Installation 03 - where Ivanoff Station was built so scientists could study the original Composer that was found there.
> Also Cortana was never digitized by the Composer or anything of the sort. Firstly, the Composer takes organic lifeforms and processes them into low-functioning AIs; Cortana is already an AI, and as seen in the very scene where the Didact uses the device on the people on Ivanoff, the Composer does not work on her. Secondly, she was in the systems of the Didact’s ship, the Mantle’s Approach, but never actually interacted with the Composer itself. She attempted to use her rampant and fragmented data to clog the ships systems and hamper the Didact’s progress, but was ultimately unable to stop him from powering up and using the machine.
But, if the composer digitalizes organic beings and handles only “low-funcioning AIs”, what if Cortana managed to, through Mantle’s Aproach systems, use the Composer storage, handling and beaming system to beam itself to elsewhere? Is it plausible?
The composer digitalize organic, so can’t digitalize what is already digital but she was IN THERE, inside the the ships systems connected to the composer already.
