[[WMG: Payne's bullet-time is a real super-human abillity]]
This is why Max went through so much crap. The government was just manipulating events behind the scenes to see what the hell it would take to duplicate his bullet time. In fact, Valkyr itself was created from a sample from Max's blood. This explains why he could survive an O.D. of it by pure force of will. And this also explains why Max can return to normal life after shooting so many, many people. Hundreds of dead mobsters would put anyone away for life. Woden had managed to get a partly-working sample, this explains his abillity to survive so much nonsense.

* A cold dark night in the shadowy underworld of New York City alone with an empty pack of cigarettes with TvTropes ruining my life. Vinnie is an expy of Caesar from Bound? Close, but still not enough Untamed Volume Speculation for Wild Mass Guessing until the realization was pushed an inch further toward the ledge.\\

** Or Max is a amateur writer who imagines his life as noir film. And all the characters are people in his life: Mona is a girl he's into, Vinnie is a gangster who harasses him (so Max imagines him as a pathetic, wannabe gangster), Alex is his friend in real life, BB is a annoying co-worker, Jack Lupino is this drug dealer who rambles about occult shit, Nichole Horne is his mean boss, and Jim Bravura is his landlord. Max in this reality is basically a least successful version of Sam Lake.

[[WMG: Mona Sax took Valkyr]]
She took it after her sister died to cope with pain; This allowed her to survive the headshot in the first game and receive Max Payne's bullet time abilities.

[[WMG: Jack Lupino was a 6th criminal that [[VideoGame/ShadowMan Legion]] had attempted to recruit.]]
Legion had Jack The Ripper along with four modern killers on his side. Suppose he had more that were ready to join him on Earth once he succeeded? However, since Shadow Man defeated Legion in 1999, Lupino was never bonded to a dark soul. Suddenly finding that Legion was no longer speaking to him directly, Lupino began to worship any and all dark gods he could, hoping another would hear him. This allowed Nicole Horne to pump him full of Valkyr, passing herself off as such an entity knowing what he was looking for, gaining a loyal soldier to push her drug onto the streets.

[[WMG: Max is almost immortal, but can die of shock.]]
Stay with me here. Throughout the games he's been shot in the head, beaten with a baseball bat, blown off his feet by explosives, and even shot with an anti-material rifle. What keeps him alive by refilling his health? Painkillers. Take a mortal wound in 3, and you can recover by shooting your should-be killer, giving Max time to get to his painkillers. Close to death? Bleeding all over the place? Better get some pills, Max!

[[WMG: Mona's fate is deliberately ambiguous in ''Max Payne 3'']]
At no point in the game is it definitively confirmed that she's dead. Max doesn't talk about her at all, and her tomb is noticeably absent from the cemetery level, which contains pretty much every other major person that Max got killed in the previous 2 games. If she survived, the fact that the two of them aren't together is hardly surprisingly, given how messed up personally each of them was.

** The TV shows may be real, but that doesn't mean he's really stopping halfway in a level - y'know, [[GenreSavvy knowing that]] [[EverythingTryingToKillYou dozens of armed criminals that want you dead are around the corner]] - to watch TVs at random, or even to take the stress off momentarily. I believe the TV shows are [[TheTetrisEffect points where Max is wondering how the characters of the TV shows would fare compared to him]], or ([[NewsTravelsFast in the case of newscasts]]) speculating how the current events of his life would be interpreted by the press. [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment The fact most of the content of the shows is nowhere NEAR what he's experiencing]] [[FirstPersonSmartass is probably just mentally subconscious snarking on his part]].
