The lights are on
Being a superhero is hard work. You have a huge mess to clean up, and a lot people looking to you for salvation. And, of course, you have a reputation to think about. Are you sure you're handling your duties responsibly? Discuss.
In Kessler's timeline he was actually much older than the Cole you play as in the game when his powers were first awakened. More than likely he and John never met in that timeline but John's powers were still activated somehow. When he came back in time everything changed and because of his actions Cole and ended up meeting each other before John ever became The Beast but it still didn't change what he knew himself. Watch Star Trek sometime; it will explain all that "space time continuum" crap.
ALL YOUR LOOT ARE BELONG TO ME.
Good point I didn't think that John got his powers some other way.
Thanks man! :)
