Did Clu 2.0 have a Black version of Flynn's light cycle? Edit

On The cover of TRON: Betrayal, there are two of the 2nd generation Light Cycles depicted zooming by. There is Kevin Flynn's white one, and then there is the same model that is black. I own this graphic novel and finished reading it yesterday, so I know that it is by NO means canon, but I noticed that at the beginning of TRON Legacy the same black light cycle is shown as a toy alongside a toy version of Flynn's light cycle on a shelf in Sam's room. It would fit with the sort of yin yang symbolism that was shown with the two hexagonal puzzles that were two different colors that Flynn had on his fireplace in his Grid Safehouse. So this leaves the question, did Clu have a black version of Flynn's cycle?

There is no proof that the black 2nd light cycle belonged to Clu. Yes, the cycle appeared on the cover of the graphic novel and as a model, but it is in no way shown as being linked to Clu. Also, TRON: Betrayal is semi-cannon, because only the epiloge contridicts any pre-existing material. On another note, please show WarBlade more respect. He's been very patient towards working hard to clean up the mistakes that we've all made. If you disagree with him, you should at least support the points you are trying to get across and not make blind accusitions. --Gibson42 09:58, December 28, 2011 (UTC)

TRON Betrayal is non-canon entirely. It contradicts events throughout. Also, stay stay on topic, and don't butt into other people's business (and make blind accusations, ironically).

I apologize for my actions. However, what specific "events" are contradicted throughout TRON: Betrayal. I don't recall you giving any examples. --Gibson42 20:36, December 28, 2011 (UTC)

Let me get out my graphic novel. Okay, one extremely ignorant thing that the creator's of the novel did was that they had Flynn with his 1982 hair style for way too long, up until the point where he created CLU 2. To be even more ignorant, when he created CLU 2, Kevin had the 82 style hair whereas CLU 2 had the TRON Legacy style hair, which contradicted the scene in the movie, and butchered the "made in his image" theme that was going on. There are also times when Flynn started wearing his iconic black creator robes (still sporting the 82 hair style and with a stubble) and CLU 2 had his robes on from the beginning of TRON Legacy, and that was before the betrayal, which directly contradicts the flow of events, and again butchers the "made in his image" theme. Another event that is contradicted is the manifestation of ISOS from the Sea of Simulation, whereas in TRON Legacy they came from the Outlands and were already manifested when Kevin saw them. Another part is where CLUs guards poison the Sea of Simulation which is not mentioned anywhere, and he is also seen where his battle suit before the betrayal, but with white circuitry (further butchering the theme). While not related to canon persay, Flynn was present during most of this scene and still could not see CLU for the schemer he was. And if you want to count TRON Evolution as canon, (which you should) then they also mess with that. They take a character named Radia's design exactly and rename her Ophelia. The epilogue is extremely non-canon as well, and I haven't even gotten into the real world sections... TheMattMan095 21:09, December 28, 2011 (UTC)
