Now I know that there is an alternate version of Ethan known as Corroded Crank but after some thinking I thought why not a version called Corrupted Crank?
I mean when computers get corrupted, it means theres a virus or its broken beyond repair and Im thinking that this is a good name for an Evil version of ethan. Cranks are associated to machinary and corroded machinery os just rusty but it still works maybe woth some problems. Now corrupted machinary could mean anything. Faulty wires making it go haywire, maybe turning itself on when its been switched off that kind of thing which can lead to very dangerous situations and accidents.
Anyway heres my take on a dark ethan. Hes a corrupted entity that can take over any kind of electronic device or machinary, corrupting that and causing mayhem.
