All that, and he still can't stop himself from shitting on people's windows.
It's all part of it.
In the pages of Jojo where the powers of the different Stands is laid out, what does "learning" measure?
I would have kept reading it if it wasnt for the horrible shitty scans
How quickly a Stand can unlock new abilities (assuming the User is worth a shit).
Joseph took out the perfect life form with his wits. No stand. Hamon was useless as well. There was only one thing that could possibly be done.
Reading that part for the first time was amazing. After all the buildup with Lisa Lisa over how Jonathan and his son both dies early, heroic deaths and how Joseph was probably going to follow the same. And so the guy nosedives into a lavapit, because the only chance to defeat the enemy is to send him to the stratosphere.
Yet Joseph laughs death in the face, survives, and lives to be a very old man who fathers an illegitimate child when other men would be playing bingo and shitting their pants in a retirement home.
Bare with it. You'll barely notice it once you get in to it.
Why did he have to age so terribly?
Yeah, it was a shame. But he was pretty damn fit in part 3. All that stress in the battle against Dio must have taken it's toll before part 4.
I'm not sure the author himself knows what he's talking about. Though it's probably something like how quickly it adapts.
I loved how he took the time to mess with Cars' mind right before he thought he was going to die.
The joestar men had a history of dying at an early age. Joseph was kinda the "IN YOUR FACE, BITCH" of that concept. I guess it's a given that he had to grow bitching old and weak.
