[FULL] Angel Of Death Part 2 Mad
Roughly one year after her death, Alita awakens and is initially uncertain where she is. Scanning the room, she notices a long trail of blood nearby; following it, she comes upon the partially decapitated and disemboweled body of Nova. Knowing she couldn't have been able to do this, she notices the Damascus Blade on a nearby tray; when Alita tries to pick it up, she is shocked to see it just is a hologram. A recording pops up where Nova greets her and informs Alita how he used the ruined blade to help construct the Imaginos Body she now possesses. Assuring her he did not tamper with her mind, he tells Alita the basics of how to use it before the recording ends. Alita looks back at Nova's corpse and asks herself what really happened here when a loud bang is heard and three youths fall through the ceiling. Landing in front of Alita, they tell her to run and a large MIB drone shortly follows them. When it tries to attack the youths, Alita gets its attention and goes to fight it; however, she is still unaccustomed to her new body and gets overwhelmed by the drone. As the drone breaks through the wall, Alita manages to wrap her arm around one of the broken wires from the drone and is shocked to see she is in Tiphares and dangling high above the world. She manages to quickly use the drone's momentum against it and it falls through the hole towards the surface. Alita thinks about Lou for a moment before leaving the area. However, one of the girls named Pam faints due to altitude sickness; remembering an early memory of Erica helping her when they first met as children, Alita scoops the girl up and the other two, Nola and David, lead her to their camp. Noticing the amount of blood and bodies within the area, Alita inquires about it and Nola merely says they need her help and all will be revealed soon. As Alita is brought to the camp, she notices that there are only children and youths around without any adults nearby. The leader of the group, Jim Roscoe, introduces himself and remarks that he was with Nova when Alita was reconstructed. She learns that all Tiphareans were informed of the 'Secret of Tiphares' and a civil war broke out between the adults and children; Jim then presents Nova's two brain bio-chips as proof, confirming that he was the one who had killed Nova. Even with this information, Alita does not agree to join them and departs, intent on finding Lou; despite resolving to go alone, she allows both Pam and Nola to follow her.
Upon arriving on the Leviathan I, Alita learns a bit of Ping Wu's past from an acquaintance of his named Rem Rei & runs into a child on the streets; she is advised to return him to a nearby juvenile facility but is later horrified to learn it is essentially a death camp. Alita, Sechs and Zazie go to search for the youth and the squadron he is part of but finds them all dead on a battlefield within the ship's combat chamber; Alita bemoans how she essentially caused the boy's death when a helicopter arrives and a mysterious man emerges and surveys the carnage. After Zazie confronts the man, named Payne, Alita does so also and attacks him with an electromagnetic punch that obliterates Payne and the guards accompanying him. Alita is horrified to learn that even though she helped in killing Payne, he has somehow begun haunting her thoughts and memories; regardless, both herself and Zazie go on a mission to gather up as many flags on other battlefields within the combat chamber to both save other squadrons of children from death and to also qualify for the upcoming Zenith of Things Tournament. Ping Wu's plan to retrieve Lou's brain was to enter the tournament as a cover to access the brain incubator on Ketheres; once they have acquired Lou's brain, they will slip away unnoticed. Learning that it is a team event, Alita invites Zazie to form one, but the latter does not respond. Upon arriving to the final flag's location, they disembark from the helicopter; Alita has Sechs stay behind to provide commentary and insight to the camera team that brought them there. Encountering the Space Karate Forces at the final flag, Alita offers to spare them if they leave the flag behind. After struggling a bit against Gavit, Alita is able to cause his body to exert too much pressure and explodes; after Zazie deals with Hogan, Alita squares off against the final member Toji.
One day, while killing crabs during a rainstorm that has lasted for several days, Pelayo discovers a homeless, disoriented old man in his courtyard who happens to have very large wings. The old man is filthy and apparently senile, and speaks an unintelligible language. After consulting a neighbor woman, Pelayo and his wife, Elisenda, conclude that the old man must be an angel who had tried to come and take their sick child to heaven. The neighbor woman tells Pelayo that he should club the angel to death, but Pelayo and Elisenda take pity on their visitor, especially after their child recovers.
In the popular retelling of the Passover story, the "destroyer" is often called the "angel of death," but the words "angel of death" don't actually appear anywhere in the Hebrew Bible, the Christian New Testament or the Islamic Quran.
Does that mean that the angel of death doesn't exist in the monotheistic traditions? Not at all. It only means that our popular conception of the angel of death doesn't come from the standard biblical canon, but from curious texts like the "Testament of Abraham" from the first century C.E., and from tales of the angel of death circulated in the Hadith, sayings attributed to the Prophet Muhammad and his companions.
Very few angels are named in the Hebrew Bible (known as the Old Testament in Christianity) or the New Testament. The angels Michael and Gabriel make appearances in the book of Daniel, and God sends the angel Gabriel to inform Mary that she will be the mother of Jesus. But the authors of the Bible took great pains to emphasize that God was the only one calling the shots, not angels. Indeed, in the Bible, there is no mention of an angel who ushers people from death to the afterlife.
The ancient world was full of polytheistic traditions that portrayed death as its own god with its own agency, explains Annette Yoshiko Reed, a religion professor at New York University and the author of "Demons, Angels and Writing in Ancient Judaism." Mot, for example, was the death god of ancient Canaanites and Phoenicians, and the Egyptian Book of the Dead presents a vast pantheon of gods and fearsome creatures encountered in the afterlife.
As time went on, Jewish and early Christian authors played freely with the portrayal of an angel of death. The "Testament of Abraham" was written in Egypt in the first century C.E. and not only personifies Death, but pokes some fun at it.
In this highly entertaining text, the great prophet and patriarch Abraham has lived a full life (995 years) and God sends the angel Michael to inform Abraham of his impending death. Abraham isn't ready to die yet, so he tries to stall death by asking Michael a million questions, some clearly meant to amuse the reader.
Eventually, God sends Death himself to collect Abraham's soul, but Abraham keeps up his old tricks. He asks Death endless questions about the different types of death (there are 72) and all of the mysterious and gruesome forms that the angel of death takes when collecting the unrighteous (a most gloomy face of a viper, a face of a most terrible precipice, a face of a fierce stormy sea, a terrible three-headed dragon, etc.) Finally, Death has enough:
Through the Hadith, we learn that there are four archangels in Islam: Michael, Gabriel, Israfil (who blows the trumpet to ring in the Final Judgment) and the angel of death. Although some sources claim the angel of death's name is Azrael, there's no textual proof for that, says Burge. The correct name is Malak al-Mawt, Arabic for "angel of death."
Similar to the angel of death in ancient Jewish and early Christian texts, Malak al-Mawt doesn't choose who lives and who dies, but strictly carries out God's orders. Every soul is assigned an ajal, a fixed date of death that is immovable and unchangeable. Once a year, in the month before Ramadan, God hands Malak al-Mawt a list of all those who will die in the coming year, and it's Malak al-Mawt's responsibility to harvest their souls.
Like the Testament of Abraham, the Hadith contains accounts of other great prophets who tried to elude or cheat death. When Malak al-Mawt comes for Moses, for example, he slaps the angel so hard that one of his eyes pops out. After God fixes the angel's eye, Malak al-Mawt goes back and strikes a deal with Moses that if he goes peacefully, he'll be buried within a "stone's throw" of the Holy Land.
In contrast to Abraham and Moses, when Death comes for the Prophet Muhammad, he submits to his fate. Burge notes that in the Hadith, the angel of death knocks and asks Muhammad's permission before he enters, a sign of ultimate respect for the Prophet. In one Hadith, Death places Muhammad's fate in the Prophet's own hands:
