Vernon is a tall and wiry young man with sharp features, brown eyes look out from beneath thin and elegant eyebrows, his short black hair features a prominent widows peak.


The Venomax costume consists of a purple bodysuit with a cool blue visor; a green line design accents the undersuit running down the sides and black polymer armour is layered on top, his applicator gauntlets are made from the same material featuring six prominent in chamber's on each not dissimilar to that of a revolver or a rotary grenade launcher, are the pipes that pump his secretions into the devices inner workings to create the wide variety of concoctions he makes regular use of.




The son of Brad bilker AKA: the infamous gas man has lead a hard life, his mother was much too young and far too in love and clung to the idea of her lover returning long after he'd given up hope of ever meeting his father and spent his early life watching his only parent slowly destroy themselves with grief over someone who clearly didn't care about them in the slightest even on her deathbed she clung so tightly to the hope that he would return that she saw her own son as his father.


playing along to help his mother pass with ease he felt himself being wracked with guilt wondering if it had been his own mutant gifts that had sapped her strength and eventually killed her mixed with burning rage at the man who had abandoned him 


With nothing left to stay in freedom city for he found himself leaving for Emerald city with nothing but the clothes on his back to make a new life far away from his villainous old man


Personality & Motivation:


Motivated by Loss and Pain Vernon can come off as quite harsh to those who don't know him, displaying a great distain for things and weilding his mutation with a coldness close to callousness but in truth he understands that his abilities can be effected by his emotional and physical state so does his best to control both to avoid causing lasting harm and focus his mind to the strain that comes with using them.


Vernon takes his self appointed responsibilities very seriously and has chased criminals across country before now believing that they are his burden, dragging them personally to the local authorities or even blackstone by hand.


Powers & Tactics:

Vernon is a cold, calculating and cunning combatant who fights with sudden and brutal applications of force and poison he will attempt to quickly and decisively remove as many combatants as possible from the situation whilst causing as little collateral damage as possible, though he looses little sleep over those few who do suffer his venom, he will pursue fleeing opponents relentlessly across vast distances limited only by his funds and obligations.


His powers come from the unique organ in his abdominal cavity capable of synthesizing various chemicals from what he ingests running the gamut from Bee venom all the way to nitroglycerin or other far less savory concoctions though he refrains for anything that causes unessicary lasting harm. 


Power Descriptions:

Though his Chemical synthesizing organs are inborn to him he has augmented his usage with the applicator gauntlets on his suit allowing him to project the secretions at a distance, aerosolize them , combine them with an adheisve binder or create a two staged dosage




Gut Rot:  perhaps due to the peculiar diet (necessary to keep his abilities stocked) or even some sort of irony Vernon has a sensitive stomach and is often plagued with cramps, nausea and other gastrointestinal problems whilst these are in themselves a problem, having to run off to use the bathroom at random times can prove inconvenient which is to say nothing of the mockery and embarrassment someone with his unique power-set faces.


I hate you, Dad!: Vernon hates his father Brad Bilker with a biblical passion for abandoning him and his mother and will actively seek out opportunities to interfere in his business, embarrass and otherwise cost him financially or socially, though he refrains from inflicting physical harm to honour his mothers dying wish he find some kind of peace with the man and of course, Brads immunity to all known forms of chemical and biological weapons includes his sons powers.


Guilt: Vernon believes that it might've been his own toxic Secretions that killed his mother, though he has never dared to find out, it is something that can be used against him by particularly cunning villains such as his callous father.


Breaking Bad: there are several parties who would like to aquire Vernon and use his unique gifts to produce dangerous chemicals or metahuman enhancement compounds such as MAX and Zoom without having to go through the labyrinth.


Largely Immune:  Though immune to his powers in the dosages and concentrations in which he uses them his siolated Specialized Organs contain far more potent concentrations, enough to overcome his resistance to the effects, they might be damaged or forced to empty their contents by various means they will affect him normally.


Doctoring Dosages: Vernon has carefully learned the safe dosages and dilutions for use on other humans but anything out of the ordinary is purely guess work on his part, the more alien or extreme the difference the more he has to guess either using too little to have an effect or more disastrously too much as well as of course different concoctions affecting radically different biologies in entirely unforeseen ways.

He is capes npc the gas man (his sheet is linked in the family part of his bio) and we decided that due to his amoral and mercenary nature its mostly vernons feelngs of abandonment and loss than any direct wrong doing of his dad though he is a pretty prevealent minor villain/henchman so his aversion to him had lead him to oppose him.
