Why did Todoroki’s mom burn him?

Todoroki Shouto has a burn mark on the left side of his forehead. He got it when his mom poured hot water on him while he was suprising her. But why did Todoroki’s mom burn his face? 

Todoroki as you know is the fifth child of Endeavour. The reason he had so many kids was because he was looking for the ultimate combo that can beat All might and he thought fusing an ice quirk with fire would be the best approach. But as fate would have it, his first four kids didn’t get equal shares of the quirks as he imagined they would have, instead each had an abundance of either element.

Todoroki was different, he received both the quirks in equal proportions. On his left side, he had fire and on the right, he had ice- a combination of these two can be deadly. Todorki ignored his left side for years, considering how much he hated Endeavour and everything about him. Endeavour wanted to become the number one hero, despite all his efforts he couldn’t surpass All might which frustrated him to the core and made him look for alternate ways. The solution as you know was his Todorki’s mother.

Todoroki’s mom was tortured and sickened by Endeavor. She was continuously abused and beaten by Endeavour for not having the ideal children he desired. So, when Todoroki surprised his mom, she accidentally took the hot kettle and poured water on him. That’s how Todorki got his burn mark.

But, why did Todoroki’s mom burn his face?

Mothers can never be evil. No matter how you look at the world. When Todoroki surprised his mom, she saw Endeavor in him. She saw the same monster who once screwed over her. She was psychologically traumatized by Endeavors actions and this ultimately led her to pouring hot water on his face.

To sum it up, Endeavor was a piece of shit who lost himself in quest for becoming the number one hero, and Todoroki became a victim to that.
