If you are familiar with the Wheatley fanbase, every Human!Wheatley is a little different from each other. Even though they are all the same character, each one either looks different and/or was created with some purpose. (e.i., NQN and Bay’s Wheatleys are used for testing, being human clones with robotic bits thrown in)
This got me thinking: what would my Wheatley be used for? Other then having the universal ability to come up with bad ideas, he’s just a super short, baby faced android.
Okay, now we’ve all seen Evil!Wheatley, or also known as Corrupted!Wheatley. No Wheatley (canon core form or human/android) should ever be hooked up to Aperture’s mainframe, because he’s just not build for it. He goes mad with power along with the bad ideas.
But then I had an even scarier idea. What if there was a Wheatley created who’s only real purpose was to act like a self-destruct mechanism for all of Aperture? I’m not talking like destruction because he’s an moron; no, I’m saying he was programed to completely wipe out everything in the event that Aperture’s secrets or stolen or something to that effect. A last resort that not even Glados had power over.
He wouldn’t know he had this function, and he wouldn’t even look like someone that could do that; it would be someone that didn’t look threatening at all…
Imagine a Evil!Wheatley that wasn’t ‘evil’ because he was corrupted, but simply because he was programed to act like that in the event his primary functions are activated. He wouldn’t be destroying everything because he’s a moron, he would be destroying everything and knowing just what he was doing, with pinpoint accuracy.
I’ll let you guys digest that for bit. What do you all think?
