Moparnut (at Dragon FX (Kingsway) in Edmonton) sends in this great looking facial scar on Trevor. I’ve been seeing more and more facial scars that are visually akin to Teutonic dueling scars. I don’t want to put words in the mouth of anyone with the scars — let me be really clear that this is my own theory only — but I believe that the reason these are more and more common is that we’ve lost the warrior ethos and challenge from our society, and all we have are myths about it. Because we are unable to experience it except through stories, but still deeply feel it inside us, we try and express it through symbols like this even when the action itself isn’t possible.
PS. The story in this case as far as I understand it is that Trevor has had a ton of facial injuries, but somehow has managed to never get a scar due to mutant healing powers or something… Spur of the moment, he decided he wanted one to last (someone feel free to correct me if I’ve told that story wrong).
