I have been asked this question before from a lot of people; is W.I.C.K.E.D really good? Well, the way i see it they had a good idea going, let's find a cure. Years went by and it got out of hand. More people turned into cranks or people lost lives. They should of gave up a long time ago and just said to themselves we screwed up. We made a virus that pretty much tore the whole world to shreds. Everyone should of went to safe haven and lived there instead of fixing the world when there was no chance of staying alive.

WICKED had good intentions. What they were doing was good and was ultimately to benefit the entire planet. The author portrayed WICKED to be evil because we saw the world from a victims point of view, however in order to fully understand whether or not WICKED is actually good we need to look at this topic from 3 perspectives.

1) WICKID's perspective

2) Victim's perpective

3) The rest of the world's perspective (ROTW)

WICKED knew that the human race world become virtually exitinct without a cure for the ROTW. So the question is is it human to experiment on a small number of immune people to save 7 billion dying people? The answer is clearly yes. Even if this may not seem like a moral thing, you have to put yourself in the ROTW's shoes. If you knew that without the experimentation of these people you and approximately 7 billion people would die wouldn't the thought be ridiculous that we are even debating this topic. Since WICKID and the ROTW both agree that WICKID's intentions are good and only the victims disagree it is clear that WICKID is good. The victims thought that WICKID was good but they were unaware of the other factors involved.

As well as this, you have to remember that WICKED united all of the immunes. If WICKED had not created the maze then they would have been mostly alone and probably killed by the cranks.
