From Unofficial Handbook of the Virtue Universe
Last time we had encountered our protagonist, he had acquired cosmic powers and quickly grown bored with them, because really, cosmic powers are kind of overrated. Most of the time he simply hung out around the Legitimate Businessmen office, watching television and reminiscing about the good old days when he could take out small armies by himself... and then the Menders of Ouroboros came, and with them the promise of access to the entirety of time itself.
PL's mind quickly went to work, and he came up with a plan of action. Going back in time, he pulled another Pulsarleveler out of the time stream as well as his past self, The Ghost of Powerleveler. Directing GoPL to go back in time and possess his pre-dead body, he utilized his cosmic powers to merge with the GoPL-possessed PowerLeveler before activating his fire and ice powers, phase shifting, triggering his Pocket D and base teleporters and having the other Pulsarleveler teleport him across the zone via wormhole as he jumped into the Pillar of Ice and Flame. The resulting clash of powers was intended to allow him to suck up every last bit of XP that is, was and would be.
Unfortunately, it just left him as an 18th century Victorian cyborg from the future. Oh well.
Psycholeveler is a gracious, amicable individual with a wide altruistic streak and a noble heart.
Fuck no. He's still bitter and still cynical, still doesn't like his fellow villains for the same exact reasons for before and still has that funny accent that he had before. The only difference now is that he's a little bit crazy. Crazier. Whatever.
Before, PL could set things on fire with his hands or his body. Now he can set things on fire with his mind. Lots of things to be precise, both in the "many things at once" and "many things overall" senses of the phrase. To the surprise of absolutely no one, pinning people down and lighting a bonfire under their feet is a remarkably effective method of getting rid of angry mobs.
Somehow, becoming a 18th century Victorian cyborg from the future has unlocked the hidden potential within PL's mind, granting him incredible psychic talents. While this is normally used for a variety of purposes, both offensive and defensive, PL mostly just uses it to scream directly into peoples' brains. Every three seconds.
Onlookers often wonder just what, precisely, goes through the minds of people on the business end of PL's psychic attacks aside from wracking pain. The truth of the matter is that, when traveling through the eternal void between time, he peered into an infinite amount of possible pasts, presents and futures, bearing witness to all they have done and will do, up to and including the entire combined output of Deviantart. When he screams into the minds of others, he's shoving twenty years' worth of Naruto/Thomas the Tank Engine slashfics, furry inflation and 300/Kingdom Hearts/Torchwood crossovers into the forefront of their consciousness, all focused into a single cry of despair and horror that snuffs out the pure light of the human soul.
How and Why
Shortly after PL's return/creation/whatever you want to call it, a joint venture between the Legitimate Businessmen's and Circle of Jerks' chronologists began a study to determine what, precisely, just happened. While PL failed to gather up all the XP ever, he did somehow manage to render his non-corporeal self down into the primal essence of XP acquisition and powerleveling before scattering it across time.
In the vein of events that some groups participate in that have no bearing on other groups despite shaking the very foundations of the world they live in to its core, this had profound effects on the very fabric of reality: Instead of being a mere human or ghost, PL had somehow merged with the transcendent energies of powerleveling, spanning time and space itself. As such a primal force would require an avatar, he would be constantly reborn in whatever form was most suited for gaining XP in an expedient fashion.
