Episode Review of Dark Angel Season 2: "Designate This" Max meets her breeding partner when he is brought to her cell one night. Alec is a bit of an interesting character, because he likes Manticore, but he's not a "true. The last name "McDowell" was given to the character by one of Dark Angel's Alec (then known as ) met Max while she was imprisoned at Manticore.
Alec at Jam Pony Once free, he engaged in various methods, generally illegal, to gain quick cash; one of the first was cage fighting.
He wasn't planning on doing this long, but ceased altogether excepting mental coercion after he gets caught, is forced to kill, and then nearly killed, by Ames Whitethe deadly agent assigned to hunt down and destroy all escaped transgenics.
Alec then emulated Max by working at Jam Pony a bike messenger service in order to secure a Sector Pass and scout potential places to steal from. He also ran various scams and had shady business dealings around the city. However, he did limit himself to products that won't get his clientele killed, limiting his customer base. Wired for survival, he's initially looking out only for himself, but, through Max's influence and his own repressed conscience, he changes enough that he willingly and often risks himself for friends and transgenics in distress.
By the end of the series, he and Max work together to build up the new community for Manticore escapees dubbed Terminal City a.
Transgenic Cityor more commonly: Powers and Abilities As is standard with X5s and partially shared with the other transgenicshe has many superior physical traits, including: Accelerated healing and metabolism this makes it very difficult to become drunk.
Enhanced immune system all transgenics were made immune to all common bio-warfare agents. Alec's bar code Although he appears to be an ordinary human except for the bar code on the back of his neck that's genetically encoded into his DNAhe possesses extraordinary physical strength, able to overpower a man three times his weight, his reflexes are superhumanly fast, and his eyesight and sense of hearing and smell are extremely acute, which, along with his training, would make it very hard for someone or something to catch him by surprise.
He can leap great distances vertically, allowing him to jump over a barbed fence, and is capable of sprinting at extreme speeds allowing him to blur, making it very difficult for anyone to catch him on foot, except another transgenic. X5s have enhanced night vision, to the point where they can see well in very little light, and telescopic vision, allowing them to selectively zoom in, and view objects from a distance. All transgenics have a high number of stem cells in their blood allowing for them to have extremely high regeneration rates.
However, if an X5's organ becomes extremely damaged, such as a bullet to the heart, it has to be replaced, and can only be replaced with an X5 or bio-mechanical substitute. All X5s are O-negative blood-typed and are universal donors but can only receive from another X5. Their metabolisms are extremely high, thus making them almost completely insusceptible to alcohol and possibly poisons. Their higher body temperature means that a scanning device invented by Ames White 's government agency can single them out in a crowd.
X5s are very dexterous and have extraordinary agility and coordination and advanced lung capacity, allowing them to perform complicated acrobatic and gymnastic maneuvers that would be very difficult for a human, with ease.
In addition to his superior physique, Alec possesses a genius level I. He is very gifted at assessing people and situations, which makes him highly adaptive to change and able to learn and mimic with extreme speed and accuracy.
Skills Edit X5s, meant to be the transgenic officers, were exceptionally well trained and suited for military combat, strategy, and espionage including various weapons and martial arts. Like all X5s, Alec endured brutal physical and mental training and rigid discipline brainwashing from childhood till the time of his escape, and his training combined with his enhanced physique makes him nearly unstoppable when facing normal humans, though he is by no means invincible.
X5s, as children, were trained to hold their breath for four minutes and can hold their breath for much longer as adults. Alec pre-series, as X became a concert-level pianist in less than a day in preparation for the Berrisford mission. He was much taller than she was and any advantage she could get at the moment would help. Taking her usual stance of angry annoyance, she waited. Turning slowly, he pretended to be shocked by her presence. Alec gave her a sly grin and then turned back to the woman hanging on his arm.
Max was outraged and she was about to smack him upside the head when he excused himself. Alec chuckled at her outburst and finished his glass of scotch. He followed her outside of Crash and they made their way to their destination. After chewing the inside of her cheek raw, she finally exploded "relax?
Because of you we're now an hour behind schedule. When are you going to learn Alec? The world doesn't revolve around you. Some of us actually have better things to do than…" she let the words trail off and waved her hand back to the bar. She still had no words to describe it. Just because you're not getting any it doesn't mean the rest of us have to follow suit. Boy she needed to release some of that sexual frustration soon or she was going to explode.
He'd just love to be there when it happened so he could rub her nose in it. It was a constant game between them. He pushed her buttons and she snapped at him. Now he lost it and burst out laughing. She swore he talked because he was completely in love with the sound of his own voice.
He was right but she would never let him know that. He would never let her live it down. Even though the virus still stood between her and Logan she couldn't bring herself to steer away from him. True she was frustrated with her sense of loyalty.
She felt guilty because he'd held on to her so long and somehow it would just seem wrong for her to walk away. After everything they'd been through together she couldn't see herself with anyone but him. Only after so many close calls with them touching and him almost dying. She had finally brought their relationship to a screeching halt and she'd called it off. Using the excuse that Alec and her were together.
She still couldn't believe of all people and of all the things she could have said that it ended up being Alec.
She was still kicking herself in the ass for that one. Alec of course milked it for all it was worth. Alec simply shook his head at Max and her constant raging.
It seemed she had made him her personal punching bag. The way he figured as long as she was hitting him she wasn't paying attention to anyone else and he wanted to keep it that way. He seemed a little too happy for her and she worked her jaw furiously.

I have to hurry back," he reminded her. She looked at him crossly and kept her mouth shut she wasn't going to give in to him this time. Sure she felt the urge to drop him down a peg or two but it wouldn't make a difference.
They finally made it to her apartment and she stomped up the stairs. Without saying a word, she opened the door. He just couldn't help himself, he couldn't go that long without making an itty bitty comment he knew would just get her going. Who stomps like that?
