* So the steroi- sorry "specially charged nanites", the punks were using in that street racing episode were poisoning them and they [[VerySpecialEpisode needed to stop before they die]], but racing at triple digit speeds while shooting and stabbing each other is [[SarcasmMode a-okay]]. Rex was right when he said the first wipeout guy was lucky to be alive, yet seems to forget that the reason the guy was in need of medical attention was as much GETTING FUCKING THROWN AT A CONCRETE COLOUMN as it was getting an overdose with toxic nanites. Rex was acting rather self-entitled in this episode, so I'm not surprised that he was out of touch with reality enough to see nothing wrong with reenacting TwistedMetal live as long as you don't use performance enhancers while doing it. Bobo and, more head-bangingly, Six however, see the faulty logic and skewed priorites being exhibited by Rex and his new gang, but decide to let it side. Or, more hopefully, were praying for one glorious pile-up to eradicate the entire group of TooDumbToLive adreneline junkies out of the human gene pool.

** In a parallel to ''TransformersAnimated'''s liberal use of the Decepticons, not having a certain antagonist appear every episode makes him that much more scary and/or threatening when he ''does'' show up.

*** Update - a recent episode allowed us to see #'s Dos, Trie, IV, and Five along with an EVO turned 1. They all appear to be Super-Humans on many..MANY levels... Dos is blind and can fight with a conductor wand, Trie is hyper-strong and bulky, IV controls bandages and is fast, Five is agile, wields a InstrumentOfMurder, and is highly resistant to damage. 1 must have been a DragonBallZ - style hero or assassin.

** He couldn't have blanked out while at Providence. Holiday and Six seemed pretty shocked when Rex told them about his memory relapses, so it's not like they knew.




to:

** Not to mention, Rex is a kid working for, basically, a military organization. They would no-doubt have to put him through ''intense'' training to make sure he can fight and protect himself in a dangerous situation. That's bound to build up some muscle on a kid. Plus, like the statement above says, he's going through puberty. And boys can really shoot up height-wise, especially when they're constantly doing the kinds of things that Rex does.

** Plus, it's unknown if ''all'' of Rex's surplus nanites were offloaded when he woke up. It could be possible that he was closer to overloading while trying to cure Weaver than he was curing skyscraper guy.

** 2. If the Salazars knew that no one but Rex could use the god nanite, then why did they do any of the stuff they did? Why did they blow up the project rather than let Van Kleiss and/or The Consortium get their hands on the nanite? They knew that the god nanite would be useless to both of them, so why not just let them have it?

*** After rewatching "Endgame", I think I can answer question 2. This question bugged me too. After some thought, I surmised that the whole rigged to "answer to Rex" wouldn't stop the ones after them from at least gaining a fraction of the powers (see:Part 1 of Endgame). If the Salazars chose to go on as per normal thinking that simply rigging the god nanite to their young son would make things fine, all it would do was to make the Consortium realize what's up when they would try to get their god powers the first time, which is gaining a fraction or failing altogether and then would have gotten the whole team imprisoned and interrogated as to why they failed to achieve godhood. Not to mention, the "rigged to Rex" thing only denies them their SetBonus, just the individual powers alone would have turned them into a team of supervillains capable of putting the world at their feet as demonstrated in the beginning of Endgame:Part 2. Realizing that this action wasn't enough, they blew up the whole place and scattered them across the globe instead.

** I think he is just a BaddassNormal with cybernetic arms, pure cyber arms don't seem like a EVO power. Rex has to grow his and no other EVO has mechanica noises every time they move.

**** The WesternAnimation/{{Ben10}} nanochips are actually about the size of your fingernail. They ought to be called [=MICROchips=], but that would be [[ViewersAreMorons confusing]].

** This troper agrees. It was a pretty major missed opportunity. My guess is that they wanted to but couldn't think of anything fitting for strong and weak forces.
