Saying Harrison is a pseudonym doesn't give anything away though. If anything, it heightens the mystery.
Wrong.

It tells us that when his identity is revealed it will be a big moment- someone known even to casual Trek viewers as bad ass.

It ain't Muddy nor Mitchell.
Not necessarily. He could turn out to be Pike's bastard son, or someone.

Yes, necessarily. It's an adventure movie, not a soap opera.

It's not necessary to be so dismissive and arrogant about it all the time. Especially since you've been this way with both peple saying he is Khan and with people saying he isn't Khan at different times. Are you going to apologize to the folks you've treated harshly who said it's not Khan when it's discovered it isn't or if it turns out he actually is Khan, are you goig to apologize to those you teated harshly who said he is Khan?

What is so Soap Opera-y about taking all the "Family" references that have been made literally. Plus that was merely an example of an alternative type meaning to "Who he is". I don't pretend to know better than everyone else, I'm merely saying that interview is not proof positive "Who he is" means it's a named Canon person, and even if he is, Khan is no guaratee

I agree. I can't tell which side of the fence this guy is on. He either thinks it *is* Khan, and is poo-pooing people who don't. Or, exactly the opposite. Or both. In any event, he comes off as very rude and haughty every time.

So, Legion, we get it: you love the idea it's Khan, and you hate it at the same time, and we're all idiots who don't understand movies, marketing, or Star Trek. Next contribution?

Well if it is him I'm hoping when he trashes the fleet he uses a certain type of 4 digit code that is known to screw up federation starships as the irony would be delicious.

I think he is a rejuvenated Capt. Robert April with super strength and I think that ship that Kirk is space diving to is April's Enterprise.
NOOOOO!

That is way too fanwanky, out of left field, and generally convoluted to be a good idea.

Now that makes sense except for the explanation how he has super strength. It explains why he wants to kill top Starfleet brass (in that scene in the trailer) for sending his dad on that fateful mission.

Re: Lindelof On The Mysterious Harrison

I'm still at a loss to understand why so many folks seem to think that Harrison has "super strength".

I've certainly seen nothing that would indicate this. I mean, just cause we've seen pix of him holding his own against Spock in a rooftop fight scene is hardly indicative that his character possesses anything more "super-human" than a slightly better education in the martial arts than Spock has. Period.

Here's a quote from Cumberbatch about the character taken from Movieweb back before Christmas:

“When J.J. (Abrams) described the role to me... he described someone who was, in movie terms, a mixture of Hannibal Lecter, Jack in The Shining, and the Joker in Batman. He's someone who has enormous physical strength. He's someone who is incredibly dangerous, both as a physical entity and through the use of various technologies and weapons and who performs acts of what I would describe as terrorism. He's also a psychological master. He manipulates the minds of those around him to do his bidding in a very, very subtle way."
Whether or not that equates to "super" powers is problematic. But he does possess greater strength than most people.
