Today we see that American Lightning is all grown up. "That I may rise, and stand, o'erthrow me, and bend/ Your force, to breake, blowe, burn and make me new," wrote John Donne before that unfortunate incident of ending up as some ancient dude from bygone times, and I think this quite aptly sums up American Lightning's situation. He has endured many hardships, and the process has matured him.
Does this mean he no longer wants to blow up illegal immigrants? Will he start to take better care of his baby? We can only hope.
