I will start looking. They didnt put them there by accident and you can be sure the whole picture is laying out there sometwhere. I would look inside cells and everything. Also on the bridge.

Very cool find. There has to be more. I take interest in the sun on the heros shirt. Arlington refers to his invention as
Icarus, whch I though was pretty prophetic.

I think you are missing one somewhere. It could be far out of the map though.

It has nothing to do with Icarus.

EDIT: It's a superhero that the Weasel came up with and submitted for approval. The notes are from the editor rejecting the entire idea as being completely ridiculous. Essentially, this is just a little extra bit of backstory to Weasel. If they'd approved the idea and published it, he wouldn't have ever wound up in Alcatraz. Also provides some insight as to why this entire story is taking place.

The 1939 Shock Gibson comics (in real life) feature a story about an Evil Scientist that creates an army of zombies. There are also images that very closely resemble the 3 hell hounds in the map (anyone remember Finn's comment about the hound looking like one of Weasel's drawings???)

SPOILERS!!

Basically, the zombies, hounds, afterlife aspects of lightning from the fingertips, the new perk, etc., Are all directly from the Weasel's imagination. And they're manifesting because this is his personal hell/purgatory. Which is why he knows so much more about it than the others. And it's also why the Zombies and Brutus never attack him on the bridge. He's aware of everything on a subconscious level, because he's manifesting it. But on a conscious level, he doesn't understand that he's been murdered by the other's.

Half the fun was finding the pieces, plus, they're missing one too! Good video though, did you make up the SPOILERS!! part? If so, can I use it for a video?

Did I make it up? Uhhhh.... No. It's the story of Mob of the Dead. I thought that'd be pretty obvious to anyone that pays attention to detail.

It . And it's also why the Zombies and Brutus never attack him on the bridge. He's aware of everything on a subconscious level, because he's manifesting it. But on a conscious level, he doesn't understand that he's been murdered by the other's.
Uh zombies and Brutus do attack Weasel on the bridge.

And the word "bitch" comes to mind when I read your response. If my comment was rude, that's because the story is right there in front of everyone. But no one seems to be able to grasp the concept. Because no one is paying attention to the details. They're right there. And they literally spell it out for you. Every single character references the reality of the situation several times throughout the course of any given game.

So, yeah. While I may have been a little rude. I don't think it was anything compared to your bullshit attempt to try and make me go running with my tail between my legs. Do yourself a favor, don't bother trying again. Because of the two of us, I can pretty much guarantee that I really don't give a fuck who you are. Or what you think.

If your not a fan of spelling out the obvious for the rest of us who maybe take a bit longer to catch on, then don't. No one asked you to. There are plenty of people who use this forum as an opportunity to spread knowledge to others, they do it because they are fans of spelling out the obvious. So, in the future, don't feel obligated to inconvenience yourself. Someone else would love the opportunity to do it without trying to make other people feel stupid. No one wants you to inconvenience yourself, or talk down to them.

BTW you said I was wrong "It has nothing to do with Icarus." you said.

From Al's journal "Speaking of Icarus, same old story. The Editor defaced my art ... "

By "it has nothing to do with Icarus" I mean that the character is not meant to have reference the mythological greek character. Al may have named his character Icarus. But the historical character it was meant to reference is Shock Gibson.

And it's not that I don't like educating people. The thing here that pisses me off is that people are still looking for connections to the rest of the Zombies storyline. Granted, Pavonis didn't. But it gets pretty damned frustrating when you've explained, several times I'll add, what's really going on. And no one is getting it through their goddamn noodles because they're so convinced that MotD has to in some way be directly connected to the main storyline. Which it just is not.

Mob of the Dead - SUN BOY and SHOCK GIBSON! Comic Easter Egg Explained! - YouTube
The Weasel's mob of the dead superhero (who we'll say he named "Icarus" for the sake of argument) is wearing a gold helmet with wings on it. That's not his hair. Like you said right in the video, the Sun Boy character is completely unrelated. So it doesn't really make sense that you'd even reference him. Only resemblance is the sun on the chest. Shock Gibson is most definitely the character that the development team meant for fans to find. I'd even dare to say that Sun Boy is a rip off of Shock Gibson. Visually at the very least.

Massive lawl at the image you decided to use to illustrate the mythological character, Icarus. Awful.... Just, awful.

Also, in point of fact to your "superhero genre hadn't taken off" comment. Keep in mind that this map's events take place on New Year's Eve, December of 1939 (Hence the fireworks, btw). So the genre actually had. But the first superheroes didn't actually fly. They jumped. Which is why you might remember the phrase about Superman being able to "leap tall buildings in a single bound". Which is why the editor ridiculed the flying bit.

Anyway, the entire video is pretty spot on. I'd just say to nix the Sun Boy bit, revise the superhero comment, and for god's sake get RID of that picture you used of Icarus.

1939? I'm not disputing it because I'm sure you paid more attention to the audio logs than I did. Then my question is, why is the newspaper in the loading screen dated Oct 17th 1917? The headline is also a bit strange, it reads "Wall Street in panic as stocks crash", in actuality wall street had been in the shitter for over a year, the 9th worst stock market crash ran from 11/21/16 - 12/19/17. I feel like this is looking to far into things. But why a 22 year old newspaper? I don't think our inmates were incarcerated that long to be scrawling plans on a 22 year old newspaper.

I overthink things....

Thanks for the critique! I believe it actually takes December 31st, 1933 though. I mean, 1934 is when all of the other guys were executed by electric chair and the prohibition did not last until 1939. Any chance you can share where you got the 1939 number from? Thanks!

No idea what the deal is with that newspaper. I've noticed it myself. Maybe the point was to illustrate that the story takes place during the great depression? But again, no idea why they'd use a newspaper dated 1917. As the catastrophic collapse didn't occur until the late 20s. And the story itself occurs in 1933.

Yep. I was completely wrong about the date. Odd, though. I'm positive I saw the year 1939 several times in conjunction with when this takes place. I'm going to have to rewatch the making off videos.

Also doesn't make a lick of sense to have it take place in 1933, at all. Alcatraz wasn't handed over to the federal prison system until 1933. Up to that point, it was a military facility/prison. But it wasn't formally used as a federal prison until 1934. So, having 4 gangsters there in 1933, when the prison was basically being renovated to accomodate federal prisoners just doesn't make any sense. And it's pretty sloppy of Treyarch. Considering how good they usually are with getting their fictional events to coincide with historic events.

So, there you have it. Takes place on New Years Eve, 1933. When there wasn't a single prisoner on the island. =p But hey, you're right in saying that superheroes didn't exist.

So stupid. Now the huge discrepancy in the timeline is really gonna bug me. Unless they intentionally did it to point the community to something significant that happened that year... But I seriously doubt that's the case here.

On a side note: Did any of you notice the Weasel's corpse behind the gated off area on the roof? There's a blood trail that leads from the shed to the gated square next to the plane. If you look close enough, you can see his body inside of it.
