Right, by why do I care if Wolf nukes himself or not?
Considering the Aliens are useless throughout the story, the fact he can't keep them under control speaks volumes to his incompetence. I'm more than happy for him to blow himself up to fix a problem he should've been able to stop early on.
If the Aliens had been any kind of actual threat or menace it might be different, but they weren't. I can get behind a character struggling against seemingly insurmountable odds; I can't for one who's only struggling because they're shit at their job.
