A new hero arrives Overwatch : the robot suit with the evil scientist Sigma. His chunky Robo body and his nefarious allusions to power and control raise an important question: is this the same Sigma from the series Mega Man X ? Kotaku delves into this very serious report.
To determine if Sigma is the Sigma it is important to refer to all we know, the two baddies. At least because of the appearance and the malignancy alone, I'll estimate that Overwatch Sigma is at least 33 percent Mega Man X . & # 39; s Sigma. The following we know so far:
The Overwatch Sigma the World is a scientist who went awry and troubled until the experiment somehow his mind and filled him to the brim with the secrets of the universe. He has two things to do: he is really good at math and seems to be able to control gravity at will.
Judging by his lab coat, he might have worked in the same institution as the healing course villain Moira. Regardless, Sigma is a force of destruction, though one who does not seem to know that baddies like the Talon organization use it for evil. Big robot suit? Check. Megalomaniac thoughts? Check. The ability to control fundamental forces of the universe that influence other beings? Check.
Meanwhile, in the continuity of Mega Man X Sigma was the leader of the Maverick Hunters, a group of robots (also known as reploids) who behaved a bit like blade runners and hunted go villain robots. At some point he was infected with the aptly named sigma virus, which worsened his mental state and caused him to a massive robotic uprising.
Sigma is a kind of pest, to say the least, as it can jump into new robotic bodies and other computer systems thanks to its partial virus. Overwatch Sigma: When gravity enabled Sigma to adapt to physical reality, Mega Man X lends Sigma's virus gimmicks similar powers in the digital world Room. While it is questionable how much control he has over his actions due to the corruption of the virus, he is definitely a little bit more evil than Overwatch Sigma.
To break this down and find a completely scientific rubric to determine how likely it is that Overwatch Sigma is the Reploid Sigma, I will complete their similarities List
- Both Sigmas started out as (mostly) good guys.
- Everyone fell victim to a disaster that changed his perception of the world around him.
- These catastrophes gave them the opportunity to commit strange pseudo-scientific, magical stuff.
- Both Sigmas wear hardcore robo armor.
- Both are evil to varying degrees.
- The Reploid Sigma can teleport what might be a force of gravity.
- ] The normal laws of the world, digital or physical, are not real. I apply to them.
- Both are called Sigma. That's pretty damned proof.
If you look at this and decide that each junk mark works 11 percent, it seems 88 percent likely that sigma and sigma are the same sigma. This is a significant increase over the estimated probability of 33 percent. I know that I would use these opportunities in Vegas!
There we have it. We had to do the investigation. Is Sigma Sigma? Well, he's definitely Sigma, but maybe not Mega Man X Sigma, even if the odds are pretty high. As Blizzard reveals more information about his latest hero, there's bound to be new evidence that scales one way or the other. For the time being, the world is waiting for answers.
