During the finale of The Incredibles when Syndrome has his robot attack the city he poses to fight it, but actually controlling it with his remote on his arm. But then the robot suddenly shoots at the remote, blowing it off Syndrome's arm.
But why did the robot do that? I didn't exactly understand why the robot suddenly decided to turn against its master. Immediately before it did that, it was looking at its arm that Syndrome supposedly "shot" off, but I'm not entirely sure what was implied there.
- Did the robot just acquire a conciousness of its own suddenly and genuinely turned against him?
- Or was it just smarter than Syndrome realized and went for the remote to not get controlled?
- Or did it just draw the wrong conclusions from what happened (maybe immitating Syndrome)?
- Or did it maybe not even conciously aim for the remote?
Is this explained further in the movie and I just missed to get it or is it really a little unclear?
