So... Ratman invented/developed the Portal gun?

He is Ratman, right?

Well it looks like we either are seeing a very blatant reference to hl1-2, or we now have canon proof of some very bad deeds done by Black Mesa.
If this image is any true canon proof, it looks like BM took part in corperate scandal and stole the tech for the HEV suit AND the Gravity Gun...

also inb4 bitching about the art style.

"Test subject is abnormally stubborn"

Didn't Breen say Alyx's mother was very stubborn?

Edit: Nevermind I had the quote reversed. He said she had her mother's eyes.

according to the combine overwiki, alyx's mother is named Azian. not quite sure of the source though...but she died at Black Mesa.

I believe Eli talks about her if you stare at the family photo inside Black Mesa East.

IGN says that this was the second half. So that leads me to believe this is it for the comic. At least...this comic.
