Because if it’s the former, who cares if 12 is a large majority or a “piffling statistical irregularity”. It’s also not like there’s thousands, let alone millions, of people voting on comments in here to begin with.

Better story? Not even close, the last 2 years of the real Ethan when he slowly but surely became a real human, and through internal and external breakthroughs became worthy of the love of his life as an adult, not a manchild was one of the Internet’s great pleasures to experience.

This Ethan is just a moody quirky moron

And if we judged “old Ethan” part-way through his run, before those last 2 years, what would we have said of him? Kind of silly to compare a character that the author considers “finished” with one barely starting (relatively speaking) and then use character growth as the measuring stick.

I was going to say, “He can just cut off a finger and see if he respawns healed as a test”, but then I also remembered the time he broke the neck and was left paralyzed by Zeke, so that probably wouldn’t work, he needs to really die to try it.

He doesn’t respawn from injuries, only death.

This is the cruelest thing the Troll could do, getting into your head, have you sweat at night not knowing if your next death would be your last.
The suspension of the unknown fate ‘kills’ you from the inside out, causing very real lasting psychological trauma to Ethan even if he would respawn. He could lose his sanity and start trying to test out whether he’s still respawn:able or not. Whether he’s fine or not, this trauma will redefine Ethan in several ways.

They’d need to find a doctor with loose ethics.

I’m curious, is there a specific amount of time Ethan has to stay dead for the respawn to hit? If it’s short, he could be “killed” by a doctor and revived with minimal risk if the method is sound. If it’s something like his heart stops beating that could be a relatively easy test.

We have seen that the respawn timer doesn’t have a fixed duration, so we can’t rely on that. However if Lucas knows the longest respawn time Ethan has had, they could work around that and find a safe-ish test time. In most cases after about 4 or so minutes after the brain stops recieving oxygen permanent brain damage is likely to begin and odds of survival are low after 10 minutes. So if the longest respond time is like 1 or 2 minutes that might be testable. However odds are the Troll is just screwing with him. I believe we… Read more »

We can’t take anything the troll says at face value – because we can’t tell if he’s trolling or telling the truth.

And that’s the problem, Ethan might still have powers, or he might not, but testing his powers is… well let’s say you’re only failing that test once.

The first and most likely if the story is left continue with Ethan getingt pushed to save someone at the cost of his life and discover that he never lost his power. Lucas pushes him over the edge of the building and he respawns. The third is he grows old, dies and respawns to when he was the age he got the power.

If You think about it… is it really THAT easy to make a cure for such mutations? Just find one talented guy and “problem solved”?

But what’s the point of that? We don’t even know if his powers are ‘cheatable’ like that. After all, if he can still be resuscitated he’s not actually fully dead yet, so he probably shouldn’t respawn. There’s basically nothing useful you can prove with such a test. If you do perform the resuscitation you still don’t know if his powers might’ve kicked in anyway, and if you don’t resuscitate you’re back to betting Ethans life on whether he respawns. At best it’s a life-risking procedure to confirm his powers are probably gone, and at that point it’s arguably safer to… Read more »

Looking back at some of his respawns, not all of them would be instant death. Looking at the events leading up to the Deathblood encounter. Many of the injures were body shots and could take a few minutes before he would die from them. Judging by how fast paced that fight was implied, it did not take minutes between each respawn. I am guessing he instantly respawns after taking any potentially fatal damage. Just have to figure out a way to “kill” him and have a high chance of bringing him back.

There might be a hidden “HP” mechanic behind Ethans powers, like if the damage his body received was 100% fatal in the situation he’s in, respawn kicks in. Like the body shots by criminals, he’s not going to get medical attention, he’s gonna bleed out and die. It’s a matter of when, not if, he’ll die.

Just like how it works in video games – you dont wait around slumped over bleeding out for 10 minutes (exception to multiplayer shooters with medics that can revive you), you get the you died screen, wait 5 to 10 seconds and youre back.

Ethan’s reaction was due to an unconscious consideration that his respawning powers don’t work any more, in which case a deadly fall is game over.

The problem is the cure is specifically linked to Ethan and his DNA. If they made one for Lucas, it’d be with Lucas’s DNA, a completely different substance. While they would know if the cure made for Lucas worked, they still wouldn’t know if Ethan’s actually changed him.

They were originally exposed to the same substance (plus lightning) — but they got different powers. So it isn’t the goo alone (or with high voltage) that creates a particular super power, but some other factors as well. Ergo a tailored cure would most likely have to take those same additional factors into account. So there very well could be an Ethan-specific “cure” that doesn’t do anything to Lucas (or even imbued Lucas with some other power).

Ethan will live in fear for a while. But will die trying to save someone without thinking, not knowing if he’ll respawn. And then it’s either the end, or he respawns learning something.

This. It’s one thing to be a hero when you know you’re entirely invincible and will respawn if you’re killed saving someone. It’s an entirely different sort of heroism to risk permanent death to save someone else.

And just like old Ethan from the first series, this Ethan has that in him as well.

Big question: would Analog regenerate from a death caused by some kind of wasting disease/poison? Troll could have injected him with flesh eating herpes that would take months to years to kill him slowly and analog has to make the choice of whether or not to hang on while they try to find a cure or attempt a respawn that might not even work anymore or might just bring him back in the middle of the illness.

Is it a respawn of his body at the moment of death or is it a respawn of the moment the accident that gave them their powers happened? If it is the latter, then a respawn would bring him back with a body that didn’t have the ‘cure’.

I guess if he got a scar since the accident and that is still there after a respawn then his respawns are just his body at time of death. No scar, resetting to the accident body.

There are….safe’ish ways to die that you can be revived. Less dangerous than testing with a jump or a bullet. My suggestion to Ethan would be to try one of these.

In Superhero logic, it’s not at all impossible. It’s, in fact, a pretty common trope that some genius can develop something that nullifies their powers or otherwise weakens them, and it is often employed to create tension for superheroes where otherwise they’d be able to steamroll any opposition. It’s a “nice” twist in this case that there’s no way to verify if it’s true or not except by dying. Even with Superman and Kryptonite he at least *knows*

If anyone reads My Hero Academia, this is giving me similarities to Twice’s backstory. His power was he could create endless clones of himself. Unfortunately, he also had some severe mental issues, exacerbated by how often he copied himself. Inevitably it got to the point where he legitimately did not know if he was the original or not, and so was exceptionally careful to not get too harmed, because clones would die from too much damage.

Any cure that works on Analog works on D-pad to some extent since their powers have the same origin and obviously his are much easier to test. I believe D-pad would risk it to literally save his best friend’s life.

Also there was plenty of it left on the syringe and the spill on his clothes that it could easily be analyzed to see if it is anything at all.

You’re right. It would more precise to say that the Troll claimed to change the current behaviour of the superpower, a behaviour which Ethan seem to grow more or less comfortable with, and this claim can’t be proven experimentally (since he can’t risk it) OR theoretically (since no one knew how it works in the first place)

We’ve seen Ethan drop from bloodloss when trying to donate large amounts. He fell over and respawned immediately. So he could do something that would technically kill him but leaves a good chance of being revived.

Then again, he has (had?) a superpower that literally works on game logic, where respawn happens immediately once he starts “dying”. Otherwise there would’ve been a lot of instances where he slowly bled out instead of STAB –> Respawn

Best not think too hard about it
