In Netflix’s Jupiter Legacy, some plot holes emerge regarding a key weapon used in the utopian world of heroes and villains.
WARNING: The following contains spoilers for Jupiter’s Legacy Season 1, which is now streaming on Netflix.
On Netflix Jupiter’s legacyHutch (Ian Quinlan), like his counterpart from the comics, uses the Power Rod to teleport around the world and commit crimes. It was given to Blue-Bolt in the original Union by ethereal beings nearly a century earlier, and is somehow in Hutch’s hands today. However, as he goes on his quest to steal and build a machine to find his father, George / Skyfox, holes in the plot emerge.
The first comes with Hutch conveniently doubling down on his own no-kill policy. He doesn’t like it, unless he has to be, but when the twin thugs come for him, he ignores it as one uses tentacles on his arm to grab the stick. Here, we learn that the Power Rod is voice activated and you don’t even need to hold it as it commands the weapon to teleport the man into shark-infested waters.

Hutch then teleports the stick to the heart of “Big Man”, the boss he owes to, before taking some money from the remaining thug. He has no regrets for his actions when he could have teleported them anywhere in the world to intimidate them, like on a cliff for example.
The fact that Hutch is also attacked by so many gunmen in his heists is a plot hole in itself, because instead of running for cover or counterattacking, he could have teleported the rod over and over to parts of his body. to make the fight easier.
The series alters this tendency for drama as it would be too overpowered by simply eliminating each and every one in its path. Also, the fact that he’s living a strange vagabond life or committing crimes to make money is another plot hole, as he could literally teleport to a bank vault, depending on China’s job, or jewelry and steal. valuable items. You can literally take anything you want and teleport it to sell on the black market, making it inconsistent, to say the least.
Lastly, there is a plot hole when the utopian comes looking for Hutch to obtain information on the whereabouts of her father and Blackstar. Sheldon follows Hutch to Iowa, and while trying to teleport after dropping the bar, Sheldon grabs her. The thing is, instead of having it flying through the air, Hutch could have just said “home” where it should appear once more in her hand.
This is set up to make the shot look cool and show Sheldon as almighty, holding the stick as he tries to catch up with his owner and master. Instead, it contradicts what Hutch did a couple of times earlier in a bar against the twins.
