I was timelining the car and the shotgun and stuff too, before I ran into a comment that makes a lot of sense. The Road Warrior, Beyond Thunderdome, and Fury Road all have a central element- Max comes into the middle of a situation that is developing, involves himself in it, it is resolved, and he moves on. One of the characters from each film acts as the narrative focus - or the narrator - for the story, every time.

What if it's literally a story?

What if Mad Max is legendary? He's an archetypical folk hero. Each of our narrators- the Feral Kid, Furiosa- they're telling his story, what they saw of him, who he was. He has the same car because, well, that's Max's car. He rode in on it, right? He has the same outfit because "that's his jacket". Superman has his cape and his symbol. Max's symbols are made icons by the people of the Wasteland. The movies aren't a timeline, they're legends. Stuff about this guy, the Road Warrior, who is coded as one thing and becomes hope through his actions, no matter how self-serving they seem at the time- because redemption has a way of finding Max, and people want to believe.

Hey, don't consider it pop culture references, precisely, just actual references for AIs driven mad by disassociation with anyone or anything capable of engaging with it for thousands of years!

What I'm saying is take HAL, Glados, SHODAN and Ultron, blend on "puree" for thirty seconds, pour into baking tin, extrapolate by a factor of ten, bake on high for twenty-five minutes, and then cut while hot. Serves one balanced party, or Golarion, whichever comes first.

There appears to be an error in the description, since I doubt this collection would collect monsters from Pyramid of the Sky Pharaoh.

That would be an unexpected endgame twist, though.

"You know what I have too many of around here? Monitors. I was just thinking earlier today I wish I had fewer monitors that were working. So you're actually helping me by smashing them."

All of Evil Wheatley's lines from Portal 2 for Hellion.

Making access cards, thanks to N'wah's goodies thread for the inspiration. Any thoughts on more elements to add?
