WARNING: Spoilers ahead.
In Altered Carbon, Bancroft kills himself by shooting himself in the stack, I.E: a bullet to the front of the neck.
From what I understand, if someone "dies" and their stack is intact, they could be "spun back up".
He not only killed himself but he also destroyed his stack, meaning it should have "real killed" him, I.E: dead forever.
Why is it that he was able to come back after he "died", was that "him" or was that just a clone of him.
If it was a clone, was it "him" or just a "previous version" of himself, in other words, could he be held accountable for the actions of his (now dead) clone?
