Twisted Metal Head-On - Outlaw's Ending


  • It is strongly implied that Carl was the canon winner of the first Twisted Metal contest as it was mentioned in both TM2 and TM:H-O that he had won and was trapped by Calypso, a direct reference to his TM(1995) ending.
  • It is unknown how Carl was able to survive in outer space in nothing but his car for an entire year without oxygen, food or protection from the vacuum. It's possible that Calypso used his powers to keep him alive as means of tormenting him.
