***SPOILER WARNING!***

Fans have been given so much excitement in “Dragon Ball Super” that there’s just no end to the “Dragon Ball” mayhem. From the revival of the Kaioken and Vegeta’s Galik Gun, to the introduction of the new Saiyan on Earth-2 (yes, The Flash reference works here too). We’ve seen it all so far. Well, that´s at least what fans believe. And just when you think it’s over. Future Trunks has made an astounding debut. Along with his arrival, the heroes find out that there’s yet-again another threat to the future. Only this time it’s Goku! No not our Goku, but an evil version of him.

And while it’s not exactly Goku, the villain (which is named “Black” Goku) just happens to look precisely like him. We’re going to look inside of this character and see just what makes him so deadly for earth and its future. So be careful for full spoilers if you haven’t watched episode’s 48-50 yet.

And what an awesome power it is.

Between episode’s 48-50 of “Dragon Ball” Super some very interesting events have occurred. Trunks traveled from 17 years in the future to warn the heroes about Black the new. During Trunk’s encounter with Goku to test his abilities in SSJ2, Black interrupts and gives the viewers an astounding surprise: He knows what time he is in, and recognized everyone–including Lord Beerus.

Goku wasted no time in wanting to fight Black as he quickly powered up to SSJ2 to fight him. We know he can go up to SSJG2, but Trunks and Black do not. It’s important to remember after both the Android, and Buu sagas, “Dragon Ball” Super picks up where we should have left off with the exception for Uub becoming Goku’s student. Since Uub hasn’t appeared, yet it begs the question of where he is in the universe since “Dragon Ball GT” isn’t canon anymore, and neither is SSJ4. We could be jumping over the Buu storyline completely. And introducing Black as the new big bad. Since Frieza returned to help integrate SSJG2 and establish Vegeta being on par with Goku for fighting prowess.

Good Goku Vs bad Goku. Round 1, fight!

As the fight with Black ensues, Goku takes notice that they are both holding back, as Black comments that it’s an honor to fight Goku in “this body.” A serious blow is delivered to Black causing damage, and creates an opening for Goku to finish him off.

Before he can, Black destroys Trunk’s time machine and ends up being thrown back through the portal. He came through sending him back to his own time. Whis takes notice of a few serious things about Black–including his time ring. According to Beerus and Whis, only Supreme Kai’s are allowed to wield a ring like that. Which means Black could be a Kai. This would explain his earring, and his costume (it looks like the great Saiyaman’s).

This picture made me think about Powerman 5000´s song “When Worlds Collide”.

Another theory is that he could be a body snatcher similar to Captain Ginyu, or an Android. But what if there was another option to go along with this? What if he was an attempted clone of Goku to help the future? We did get a time machine after all, so cloning or gene manipulation is very possible, especially with Bulma at the helm.

This doesn’t necessarily fit since he can sense energy, and even power up to SSJ himself. What other powers of Goku’s he wields has yet to be seen, but he fights like a savage Saiyan. According to the next episode, Black finds Mai alive in the future and attempts to kill her, but she escapes. We’re supposed to find out more about his origins in episodes 51-52, and see how he came to be, who he is. A lot of fans think that God King Zematsu the green guy in the opening cinematics might be black, but again this is just one of many theories.

With that said, what are your thoughts on the Black arc so far? And where do you think the fight is headed next? Tell us your thoughts below.
