* The origin of John's facial scar: He was clawed by a T-800 endoskeleton that had just gotten molten metal poured over it. That is about the most metal (no pun intended) way you could think of for how he got that scar.

Added DiffLines:

**Let's not forget how fucking ballsy John is. En route to Tech-Comm base, John decides that He wants to meet up with Resistance Command, to demand answers to what had happened earlier in the day. After being denied his request for a meet-up, John tells the Osprey pilots taking him back to base, to open up the rear-loading door, and to tell Command to send divers to pick him up. He then proceeds to jump out of the Osprey, into a fucking swell, hundreds of feet in the air. This is John Connor we're talking about. He's Human, military training aside. He's not even augmented like Captain America, and He's jumping out of a fucking Osprey in the middle of a goddamn storm, into hostile waters; from hundreds of feet up. That's ballsy.



to:

* John talking out one of the Terminator bikes and becoming a BadassBiker.
