In the new version of Duck Dodgers, the queen of Mars seems to be in love with Duck Dodgers. However, in one episode, Dodgers seems to run away from his engagement/wedding with the queen. Why does Dodgers not sacrifice himself to end the enemity between the Planet Earth and the Planet Mars?

@mahen23 Hi, welcome to Scifi.SE. Unfortunately, this question can't be reasonably answered. Please read our FAQ for some more insight into why. Simply; this question can't be properly answered because it requires guessing on the part of the answerers. No one can be inside his head. Any answer would have to come from pure speculation. That is outside the scope of this site. – DampeS8N Mar 23 '11 at 11:19
@Dampe: How is this different from the question on flying to Mordor, or any similar question? – user1320 Mar 23 '11 at 12:33
@Tim I see your point. Let me check around and reach a final decision. Until we have an answer, I'm reopening this. – DampeS8N Mar 23 '11 at 13:06

Because Duck Dodgers is of a VERY limited intelligence and totally, completely, 100% selfish. He's unable to think beyond his immediate wants and needs and doesn't care what anyone around him says.

It's completely in character for him to plan something and change his mind at the last minute because something else grabs his attention.

Think of him as having a severe case of narcissism coupled with extreme ADD.
