Ultimate Soldier

The Ultimate Soldier was produced by the company known as 21st Century Toys. It was founded in 1997, and began making 1/6 scale figures and uniforms, and now mostly makes 1/6 scale weapon sets as well as 1/18 and 1/32 scale toys. The action figures are based on World War Two, Vietnam War, Korean War, and Operation Desert Storm soldiers.

Ultimate Soldier


In 1997, 21st Century Toys decided to create a "12" inch soldier with more detailed accessories than Hasbro's G.I. Joe. 21st Century Toys Ultimate Soldier early packaging utilized the art of Illustrator designer Malcom West. As the line became more popular with collectors, West became the overall packaging art director and brought in Creative Resolutions, a firm in Oakland California owned by Michelle Fie. The company decided to create a separate box design catered to each figure, using graphic treatments tailored to the figure. These independent designs were created and handled by lead designer Jeff Blosch. Well established illustrator Marc Ericksen, a combat veteran of two years served in Viet Nam, and having created box art for nearly 100 video games, was contracted to create the illustrations for eighteen of the figures covering World War II, Viet Nam, the current Middle East actions, and Law Enforcement. The packaging featured an exciting full battle scene, along with design motifs from the theater of action relative to the figure. This attention to detail drove the desire of collectors and created strong sales of the figures. The combat figures included: For WWII: U.S. 101st Airborne Pathfinder, British 8th Army Bren Gunner, U.S. First Infantry Bazooka gunner, German Das Afrika Korps Infantryman, German Infantry Officer, Monte Cassino, U.S. Marine Raider, Pacific Theater, U.S. Tank Commander N.C.O. Battle of the Bulge, German Wehrmacht Machine gunner, U.S. Marine Medic, Japanese Infantryman, Pacific Theater, German Fallschurmjager Gran Sasso raid. For Vietnam: U.S. Special Forces Mike Force officer, Viet Cong Cadre rifleman, North Vietnamese infantryman, U.S. Navy SEAL recon. For Middle East/ Iraq: British S.A.S. Scud Hunter. For Afghanistan: Russian Spetznatz Infantryman, Russian Spetznatz Sniper. For Law Enforcement: Police Sniper, Police Helicopter Pilot, Police K-nine officer and German Shepherd.The original SAM action figures released featured the same basic movable joint design as the G.I. Joe Classic Collection action figures featuring 15 movable parts. They were slightly taller with a slimmer build, and made with flexible plastic. The hands were a main concern, because they were stiff and difficult to place accessories into, as well as having an unrealistic head sculpt with a baby-face-like design. In 1999, the company released the Super Soldier body design with 27 movable parts. The expanded line included three new categories: The original Ultimate Soldier line included a Vietnam Veterans Memorial set of The Three Soldiers, a Spetsnaz soldier and sniper, a Navy SEAL, George S. Patton, Erwin Rommel and various other modern day soldiers. The America's Finest line included Steve McQueen, firefighters, and a K-9 police officer.

It is quite difficult to univocally relate the lyrics of the song to one character in particular. Some fans have speculated that the ultimate soldier mentioned by the title could be Shinji Ikari himself, used as a weapon by NERV, by SEELE, by his father Gendo, and definitely raised without compassion, with no family supporting him.

The title may likely refer to the Evangelions, which are constructed by men to do battle, are deadly weapons and are definitely more than a soldier or than a killer. The lines And in his trail is mayhem/Destruction always followed can be also related to the Eva Units.

A fist of fury, a deadly weapon, rapier of havoc,raised up in anger, born to do battle, without compassion,more than a soldier, more than a killer,and in his trail is mayhem, destruction always followed, by stricken enemies of,the soldier of no sorrow, the band of menace beckons, in numbers his protectionThe leaders of the raiders, the brothership forever

However, Mukuro was ultimately betrayed by her sister, who instead of removing her from the game after she stomped on Monokuma, impaled her on the spot with Spears of Gungnir. Mukuro was not expecting the betrayal, so she failed to save herself and succumb to her wounds moments after uttering out her final words: "H-Huh? This wasn't...supposed to..."

The Danganronpa 3 box set included a feature detailing an alternate ending of Danganronpa called Danganronpa Another End which ultimately never made it out of the development phase. In this ending, all of the students escape, at the cost of giving up their talent forever. In Mukuro's ending, she decides to stop pursuing Junko's dream and become a hairstylist.

Danganronpa IF, is a what-if scenario light novel in which Mukuro doesn't die. Instead she is the protagonist of the story, and after Makoto Naegi is nearly killed trying to save her, opts to put a stop to Junko's plans to both save her classmates and bring her sister despair. Mukuro ultimately escapes Hope's Peak alive with the rest of her classmates before the Mutual Killing Game properly begins; however, her fate after this point, given her key role in The Tragedy, is unknown

Gore: Ultimate Soldier is a 2002 budget-priced First-Person Shooter developed by 4D Rulers and published by Dreamcatcher Interactive. The game is a fast-paced shooter reminiscent of Quake III, with both multiplayer as well as a single player campaign that heavily uses multiplayer assets (the levels are repurposed multiplayer maps modified to be more linear, and the enemies have bot-like A.I., but it is a single player campaign and not just multiplayer with bots like Quake III or Unreal Tournament) The game was essentially a means for 4D Rulers to show off their AMP Engine, which they were hoping to license out to other FPS developers in a similar vein as the Quake III engine and the Unreal engine (though ultimately the only games to use the engine were 4D Rulers' own budget-priced Secret Service: Security Breach and Patriots: Nation Under Fire).

Due to his genetic enhancment, Jack Morrison possesses physical capabilities exceeding those of a conventional soldier's, as well as other augmentations that make him a peerless combatant.[5] He can heal wounds and acclimatize much faster than a normal human.[6] In addition, he utilizes a cutting-edge arsenal, much of it stolen in raids on Overwatch installations.[5]

At the earliest opportunity[13] upon turning eighteen,[14] Morrison packed his bags and joined the military in response to the Omnic Crisis breaking out across America.[14] He had planned to serve a brief stint in the armed forces and then return home to the family farm, but his work ethic and courage caught the eye of the military brass. Before long, he earned a coveted position in the government's controversial and still-classified (but widely acknowledged) Soldier Enhancement Program." Military scientists shaped Morrison and other inductees into the perfect soldiers, blessed with superhuman speed, strength, and agility.[12]

Morrison and his fellow augmented soldiers would soon put their abilities to use as the United States was devastated by the conflict. As governments tried and failed to neutralize the omnics, the United Nations was busy forming an international task force called Overwatch. This small, experimental group would bring together the best and brightest from around the world to wage asymmetrical warfare against the robots. Overwatch's short list of prospective agents included two members of the soldier enhancement program: Morrison and Gabriel Reyes, a senior officer from Los Angeles. Reyes and Morrison became fast friends, despite their different backgrounds, and decided to join Overwatch together. Leadership of Overwatch fell to Reyes, but Morrison would have a greater impact on the group in the long term. He brought out the best in the people around him and helped mold Overwatch's diverse (and sometimes conflicting) agents into a cohesive fighting force.[12]

The next day, Morrison and Ana visited Ziegler in a camp outside Cairo, where the victims of Talon's attack were being treated. Morrison was evasive on the details of what had transpired, but on the subject of Reyes, simply stated that "old soldiers are hard to kill." He further stated that he and Ana were going to pursue Reyes, having deduced that he was headed for Europe. He asked if Ziegler would join them, but she refused, stating that her place was in Cairo. He thanked Ziegler for a medikits and gave her a mock salute before departing.[10]

Near the end of the nineteenth and into the twentieth century,a new era of Western Art stressed the need to authentically tell the humandrama of the America's frontier experience. At the Paris Exposition of 1888,a painting by a young upstart artist named Frederic Remington won a silvermedal, while the entry from the reigning Western master, Albert Bierstadt,was not even accepted. This marked the passing of Western Art from the Periodof Romance into a new era. While the explorer artists recorded the landscapeand the romantic artists aggrandized its beauty that dwarfed humanity, thisnew breed who have been called Narrative Relativists or Western StorytellingArtists sought to capture the frontier's saga. Many of these individualsbegan as illustrators for Eastern periodicals like Harper's, Collier's,Outing Magazine, and Century Magazine. With the passing of thefrontier, these artists became self-designated historians, dedicated topreserving the West's heroic memory. They spun a highly dramatic tale ofmasculine virtue and strength. Leaders in this era of WesternArt, such as Frederic Remington, Charles Russell and Charles Schreyvogel,portrayed what they saw as the heroic struggle of the American frontiersmen.The individuals in the paintings and sculptures -- whether they are trappers,calvarymen, cowboys, or Native Peoples -- are self-reliant, free-spirited,hard-working, and removed from social restraints. They embody toughness,strength, and cunning while living the "Code of the West" withits ideals of fair play, courage, and camaraderie. The brave soldier andthe resolute cowboy are portrayed as the last cavaliers acting out a heroicadventure with a backdrop of unsurpassed and unspoiled beauty. The UnitedStates publicly embraced these images with a national pride that is stillevident today. 041b061a72
