One-Punch Man's New Name for Saitama Hints at the Origin of His Strengt

Warning: Contains spoilers for One-Punch Man chapter 164 (digital manga)

The hit manga One-Punch Man teased an unexpected connection between its protagonist, Saitama, and the mysterious ultimate villain of the series, the creature known as "God", which could also finally explain the source of Saitama's ludicrous strength.

The conclusion of chapter #164 of One-Punch Man was completely remade by the authors, One and Yusuke Murata, a week after it originally came out. In the new version Garou, who is getting hopelessly beaten by Saitama, is contacted by God, a mysterious entity who offers power to selected individuals in order to pursue his yet-unclear agenda. Garou, tricked by God taking the semblance of his former master Bang, receives a new power-up and is ready for round two with Saitama. However, the most interesting thing is the way that God refers to the bald hero, which, together with a hint previously dropped by another monster, suggests there might be a connection between the two.
