Just finished Steel Ball Run, can someone explain to me the purpose of the corpse?
I understand that it was Jesus' corpse and it held some 'divine power' of some sort, but they never explained what happens if you get the full corpse.
What was Valentine going to recieve if he had finished it?
If you get the corpse you can choose which napkin to take.
Because it redirects bad luck to other countries instead. In other words, attempting to strike against America will result in bad things happening. It'll rise above all others and pretty much allow it to take whatever they want.
If I recall correctly he wanted the Corpse so he could extend Love Train's ability to all of America, essentially stopping misfortune from happening to America and redirecting it to other countries.
Valentine wanted to make America great again.
Valentine proved himself to be a liar who could not be trusted. That was the entire point of the last standoff, Valentine is NOT a good person and there's no guarantee he had America's best interests in mind.
