Personality & Motivation: He is a creative individual with lots of energy and ideas. Get him started and he won't shut up! He loves his daughter and thinks the world of her. He doesn't push too hard, but any idea she has, he'll always follow through with. Really, he's a big kid at heart, but knows with this power, he has responsibility. The powers he's been given he sees as a gift and will make the world a little less crime ridden.


Powers & Tactics: When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. Get close to the target, beat it down. Lather, rinse, repeat. It tries to run away? Stop it with webbing. Then continue with the first part!


Power Descriptions: His liquid metal arms can turn into a bunch of things, but he only uses a few. Claws up close, and webbing far away. When not using those powers, his arms grow freakishly strong. Either way, they can take a blow for him.
