Default Who is Sam "Serious" Stone?

I mean we know who he is, but I sometimes wonder about his personal history.

What is it that makes him into a "superhero," where he can take multiple bullet and laser wounds, kleer scratches and gnaar punches, even a few rocket blasts, and keep going back for more.

It's just an arcade style video game where you're not meant to think about it, but as the games might become more realistic it's interesting to think about. In BFE you can see some of the Arabic grafiti (I think it's Arabic), saying things like "Sam is a hero" or "Sam is not our hero & we don't want him here," so he has a reputation.

I wonder if he's like some kind of XNA (synthetic DNA) lab experiment created to be indestructable, or somebody who spent his life studying world cultures and secret indigenous tribes who know all about the right Qigong/yogic practices & magic vitamins to be ultra-healthy.

I think it's best if the games focus on the action, but this makes for an interesting forum topic, eh?

What do you all think?

It's the shirt. All of it is because of the shirt.

Well, in the TFE story, it is said that he is just a normal guy who basically runs on sheer, utter determination to kill Mental. "Wounded countless time, but never defeated" as it says (my favorite line from that intro). Meaning that he's not impervious to damage, but he always gets back on his feet because he is just so damn determined to fight.

I usually believe that "determination" is the most common, basic superpower of all. It's the source of "manliness" in a way, even if it doesn't depend on gender. More like a source of badassness. It is part of a lot of stories, really, it's just rarely worded out that much, often called as things like "power of love" or "power of friendship", all stem back to the one basic power, determination.

Apart from all these, I do have my own theories too about his origin, which I'll probably elaborate in some of my projects.

OOh, sounds interesting, Solais! Fan-fiction-in-the-form-of-workshop-time!

And I think I like your explanation the most, too. Just determination. No lab experiments or secret cactus formula from the desert.

Determination = Badass

Maybe he just inherited some of Big Boss's genes?
