You know rules of engagement, it's unsporting to hit an unarmed man.

>If the guy thought whatever it is he has to say to you is important enough to wiggle over here without passing out from a concussion, blood loss, shock, or just pure pain at this point, then you should at least listen to what he has to say. And then maybe put him out of his misery afterwards.

He's not quite there yet, but he's about to bleed out.

He probably wants to know why you did all that.


[Image: 2545.png]

Why. What a question. A question like that can be interpreted in many different ways. For instance, he could be wondering why you ripped his arms off after he gave you the information you were looking for.

That's simple. If he didn't speak, you would have had to torture him. This isn't something that happens often for you, but the need does arise on occasion. You know a few people who are fairly adept at medicine and would have no problem keeping a man alive through your particular brand of ruthlessness.

But he gave you the information right off the bat, so you saved him the trouble.


[Image: 2546.png]

He could also be wondering why you tossed that briefcase aside like it was nothing.

It's not what you were looking for. That's it. The only reason you're here is because you just happened across some info saying that there was a machine that could predict the future. When you see an opportunity like that, you take it. You still came out ahead in the end.


[Image: 2547.png]

And finally, that last "why" could be about you. Why are you here? Why do you do what you do? Why would someone risk their lives and the lives of others at the drop of a hat, for nothing more than the promise of something that may or may not even come to fruition?


[Image: 2548.png]

Nobody cares. Nobody cares what you do, or why you do it. They only care after the fact. Powerful people have come to covet your strength and possessions while disregarding what they already have.

Nobody cares about their own future, or their own goals. You've witnessed people give birth to dreams, only to watch them die out and become forgotten. We're given incredible gifts in this day and age so that we can afford the time to focus on what we truly want to do, but end up wasting what precious life we have left on our vices.




[Image: 2549.gif]

Growing up, you saw this happening to everyone around you - People shadowed by their potential, turning into shells of their former selves. Life's failures passing their dreams on to their children in the vain hopes that they'll pick up where they left off, with no regard for this universal cycle that they continue to perpetuate.

You don't care about money, power, or fame. You have only one goal, and you follow it with a purity and conviction that others can only aspire to:

You're going to live through to see the end of it all. Everything else may waste away, but not you. You'll be here forever.

You've spent your time training and perfecting your body such that it will carry you way beyond your intended years - and it has. Anything that will help, you take. No exceptions.

People wonder how you came to be as strong as you are. The truth is that you did nothing extraordinary, and that there's nothing stopping others from becoming strong like you. However, everyone's always looking for the easy way out. Not you... You take the time do it the right way, and that makes all the difference in the world.

The only problem is that there are certain limits to what a man can do, and all those years are starting to catch up to you. Which is what brings us here. They say that nothing lasts forever, but you refuse to accept that. You're here to stop the inevitable, by any means necessary.


[Image: 2544.png]

So, with all that swirling around in your head, we go back to the original question.

Why?

Because you can.

It's nice to finally see some expansion on Tubs' ideals and motives, even if at the end of the day all it does is confirm what we already suspected: He wants to live forever, by any means necessary. Neat goals for such an already strong character.
