What would be your verdict on Jonas Jr? Was he a good person? Or at least a better person than his father?

He was less selfish and amoral than his father (although he’s still a paternalistic dick in a lot of ways), but I think it’s significant that Jonas Jr’s accomplishments are of two varieties – consumer tech (which is a pretty clear slap at Steve Jobs and Silicon Valley self-regard) and trying to honor his father’s legacy. 

The latter of these – whether it’s the museum on Spider Skull Island or Gargantua-2 – all come crashing down, because the legacy they’re trying to uphold is tainted at its core.
