compelled to hunt?

He is an error.

A mistake.

Plain and simple.

Life wants him gone.

But what is he?

A simple villager.

He had no connection

to the Vietcong.

He had a wife.

He had children.

He was pushed by grief

to the point where...

that the very fabric

tore around him.

The local villagers

who knew him,

they began calling him

"The River God."

He wandered the Mekong,

leaving a wake of destruction.

I don't even think he knows

he's doing these things...

these horrors.

Manifesting reality through

his subconscious thoughts.

Changing matter inside the dead,

reanimating them

as visions of his own hell.


he wandered into an NVA Base,

begging for help...

but by that point,

his flesh

had entirely burned off.



As a god walking the earth...

his mind is set free.

We will set the jungle on fire.

Burn everything

until flaming gel

splatters across him,

lighting him up for us to track.

We will find him.

This is

the electromagnetic coil gun.

It's firing projectiles

about l/20th the speed of light.

Now, this...

this is the real jewel.

It creates a magnetosphere,

positive and negative polarity.

Everything about this

is designed

to keep reality unbroken,

so you can function.

You will be protected from

the breakdown in space-time.

We call it a relativity capsule.

It amplifies

the gift you already have.

Put on

the whole armor of god,

that you may be able to stand...

against the schemes...

of the devil.
