* He has the HEV suit, yes, but there are other indicators that something isn't quite right with the Freeman.
* During training, the training hologram repeatedly refers to things less as 'move your leg like this' and more 'think of this' which rather then instructing the player may be referring to Freeman himself teaching him how to use the mind interface of the HEV that takes over most of the work from his weakened muscles.
* He may be fast without the HEV, but Freeman is also noticeably stiff, thin, and not strong at all. For example, in ''Blue Shift'' his movement on the monitors in the security room is slow and stiff even for this game. In [=HL1=] he can't do more than press buttons and move small objects without the HEV suit.
* It would make a large amount of sense to hire someone whose own body is failing if you want to make proper use and test of a special suit which enhances strength and agility. After all, who would be able to measure full capabilities better than someone who would be near-totally reliant on it?
* Black Mesa goes out of their way to state they are an equal opportunity hirer and that disabled people should be evacuated first.
* People are either surprised or downright shocked by his survival even when they are barely outside the ground zero of the incident themselves, suggesting he was otherwise much less likely to survive even being at ground zero.
* Finally, with the suit, Freeman can only sprint a certain amount suggesting that the suit's power is controlling this not his own muscles, his strength is noticeably increased with the suite, and even with it he rarely if ever says anything.

People are immediately following the Black Mesa incident were also either surprised or downright shocked by his survival even when they are were barely outside the ground zero of the incident themselves, suggesting themselves. While it might be normal after the angry men with guns show up happening immediately afterward suggests he was otherwise much less likely to survive even being at compared to his coworkers in the unshielded rooms right outside ground zero.

Finally, with the suit, Freeman can only sprint a certain amount of distance tied to the suits auxiliary power suggesting that the suit's power suit is controlling this not his own muscles, muscles. Again for clarity his strength is also noticeably increased with the suite, suite capable of wielding weapons without much recoil, smashing boxes to dust, and even with it he rarely throwing around various objects when without the suit he's limited to small objects if ever says anything.

valve is waiting for Gabe Newell to die first, then release the game as a "Tribute to him". maybe even hide an Easter egg of his ghost somewhere. Maybe this is just me being over-optimistic, maybe not.

[[WMG: Laidlaw and the writer plan for Half-life episode three and what Management wanted was what caused production to stop]]
[[spoiler: Given Laidlaw plan for episode three. it's clear that episode three would have been the ending of the series. Given how difficult it would be to return from what was planned. This caused issues in management who didn't want the series to end before a three and the conflict and struggle of reformatting the game and other e=issues eventually caused production to stop and then the writer leaving is the finale nail in coffin and Half-life episode 3 or HL3 will never get made.]]

[[WMG: Gordon Freeman was controlled G-Man from the very start of the franchise.]]
Gordon was inserted into Black Mesa in the same way he was in City 17. The G-Man was able to manipulate his memory and identity for a proper background to be selected for a position at Black Mesa. In Half Life 2 Gordon remembers G-Man and the events of the resonance cascade because that was relevant to his operations against the Combine. Once Gordon's purpose is fulfilled, G-Man will him for a future assignment.

[[WMG: Cpl. Shepherd will be brought back as revenge.]]

The G-Man is a man in black, and he doesn't get his own hands dirty when something goes wrong. The last Shepherd heard, the aliens were evil and the government was fighting back in a desperate struggle. With the G-Man free from the Vortigaunts, how can he force them to back off? A preserved US Marine and the knowledge to kill aliens.

[[WMG:The HEV Suit was military equipment and Gordan learned to fight from testing it]]
Black Mesa is an underground think tank funded by the government so it makes sense that they'd be making military equipment. The HEV was one of those which is why it has so many combat features. Gordon, being the new guy and probably a social climber, volunteered to do all of the testing for it. This had several consequences, notably Gordan gaining the equivalent of combat training during testing (as seen in the tutorial), Gordan earning Employee of the Month (as seen in his office in Opposing Force), and upper management deciding to focus on testing Gordon's thesis [[NiceJobBreakingItHero (as seen in the opening of the game).]]

VideoGame/{{Counter-Strike}} - Terrorists attacks Black Mesa assets, kidnapping scientists, seizing facilities, and threatening to bombing Black Mesa assets among other things. Counter-Terrorists are set to thwart terrorist's plan, business as usual. The Counter-Terrorists eventually won, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero allowing the research that leads to Black Mesa Incident to happen]].

According to TheOtherWiki, Gordon Freeman's doctoral thesis was titled ''Observation of Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen Entanglement on Supraquantum Structures by Induction Through Nonlinear Transuranic Crystal of Extremely Long Wavelength (ELW) Pulse from Mode-Locked Source Array''. Clearly, he used up all his words for life in the title of this thesis. The body of text was completely blank. Apparently, the G-Man must have landed him the job at Black Mesa.
