[[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]].

[[WMG: Max is unwittingly a pawn of [[Franchise/MetalGear the Patriots.]] ]] The Inner Circle was a front for the Patriots, allowing them to conduct experiments with Valkyr on soldiers, among other things. They discovered that Nicole Horne was selling some of the bottom for her own personal gain, and one quick and dirty frame job later, sent Max on his mad shooting spree to bring down Aesir Corp. The resulting power vaccum allowed Vlad to attempt to monopolize the Inner Circle. The Patriots manipulated Max into serving as their foot soldier yet again, with predictable results. After the firefight in the Woden Manor, Max was the only survivor, and seeing as he still knew nothing about the Patriots, and was a potential asset to them with his nano-machine induced bullet time and nigh invulnerability, they decided to manipulate him into a position as a bodyguard in South America, from which they would be able to extract him whenever they felt like it.

[[WMG: Gordon Freeman is Max Payne]] After the horrific events of the first two (maybe three) Payne games, the governemnt used Max's college minor and some intense training to put him in an out of the way facillity studying some pointless energy crap. And changed his name. Of course, that all went to hell. The HEV suit simply dumps loads of painkillers into the hero's body when he is injured. And the film/noir secret behind this move? They stole Max/Gordon's bullet-time. And gave it to the G-Man. That's why the government has been interested in Max all this time. They wanted his bullet-time.
