Elon Musk, Rick and Morty fan and billionaire CEO of Tesla and SpaceX who smoked weed as soon as, is an indecently wealthy man who might use his cash to unravel a number of issues at this time, however as an alternative chooses to make electrical vehicles for different wealthy folks and crash rockets into boats. And the way he is the butt of a nasty joke in Rage 2 as a part of a secret mission.
Whereas wandering the wasteland, I discover some alluring bunker doorways embedded within the facet of a mountain and as everyone knows, if there is a bunker there’s in all probability a lonely, mad individual inside (or a minimum of the skeleton of 1).
This explicit lonely, mad individual goes by Elton Tusk, as the information pads strewn in regards to the bunker say. He is the previousâ€”properly, technically, present CEO of Tusk Industries, if you wish to proceed to imagine in capitalist hierarchies within the post-apocalypse.Â
Posters reference area journey and eco-pods and nanotrites, knowledge pads element Tusk’s nice creativeness, modern applied sciences, and obscene wealthâ€”all of that are immediately contributing to the facility struggles in Rage 2’s apocalypse state of affairs. Let’s line up the proof:
- Elton Tusk = Elon Musk
- CEO of an organization researching area journey, nanomachines, ineffective issues
- Wealthy man deemed a “nice science mogul”
It is an Elon Musk bit, little doubt about it.Â
As I transfer by means of the bunker, Tusk harries me and hails himself, threatening my small stature whereas boasting about energy and mind past comprehension.
I am referred to as a number of extra names earlier than I enter a big round room. Elton’s going to sic his robots on me, however they’re not practical. I wish to assume they deserted him. One falls to the bottom, a crude machine that appears like a pointy tooth with deal with bars. Â
Elton is within the subsequent room, and as anticipated, he is a lot smaller and sadder than his bombast.Â
Dude’s a mind in a jar. Not solely that, however the cyber void he is been residing in all this time has emptied out. What was stuffed with mild and sound and data is now darkness. Â
It is not a very sturdy joke on Avalanche’s half as a result of it lacks specificity and extra direct jabs at Elon’s many public blunders, but it surely’s a tiny, heat pocket of cosmic justice in a chilly world. I am going to take it.Â
