A Tall and Rotund man Max is carries his weight with a stately posture and dresses flamboyantly given even the slightest excuse, likes to keep himself well groomed even with the regrettable sacrifice of his body hair.


Max's history begins long before he was even conceived with his father, a German scientist who in the earliest days of the second world war, Disgusted by the horrific immorality of the Nazi parties Ubermensch program, attempted to defect, Sadly he was caught attempting flee the country with his research and in what the SS Commander believed to be Poetic justice, Injected with the experimental formula he had been carrying with him, Over a half dozen compounds of various make up were pushed into his veins and with the resulting seizure and preceeding beatings, he was thus left to die in a shallow grave of a muddy ditch along a rural path.


Needless to say none were more surprised by his survival than himself and after crawling his way out of the ditch he found himself with little worse than a limp and able to make it the rest of the way to the rendezvous with the allied agent waiting to extract him with scraps of his research notes he could gather from amidst the chaos clutched to his chest.


Herman's Contribution to the allied war effort were at best moderate but still appreciable enough that he was offered full US citizenship under project paperclip following the wars conclusion, a quite life of comfort proved reward enough for the exhausted scientist and for while he settled into life working for DARPA.


That is until he met his wife at some event he barely remembered, dragged along as a big name on some project or another he none the less lacked the influence to refuse his employers assistance to attend; it began what proved to be a whirlwind romance that culminated in tragedy and triumph in equal measure.


His mother, being of swiss nobility had been disallowed to marry Herman Lucre by her family, having dismissed her infatuation with the commoner as little more than an adventurous if drawn out streak of rebellious thrill seeking; they were shocked and enraged to learn she was pregnant with his child and all but disowned (to maintain their oh so precious public image) 


Maximilian would never know his mother as; one stormy night in a cottage in Zurich which to this day Maximilian refuses to celebrate; she left this world for the next; dying shortly after delivering him to the world, holding on just long enough to hold him in her arms before she breathed her last; leaving him to be raised in the care of his heartbroken father.


As he grew it became apparently that only only did he have an intellect far in excess of his genius father but also a tremendous force of personality that allowed him to turn even the staunchest opposition to his cause, his father sensing the seeds of greatness did everything in his power to ensure max revived the best education his meager means could provide even amidst the Johansson families attempt to quash information of their illegitimate grandson.


and so as a young man in his 20's Maximilian raised not one but two companies to the heights of success, the first LucreTech He handed to his father as a means of keeping himself in luxurious comfort whilst he pursued his other agendas, Max Corp on the other hand he dedicated to much more vindictive means, granting it to the care of one of the rival noble families of the johansson and firmly tipping the scales against them and their pursuits on the agreement of regular "donations" to the various charities his mother had championed whilst she held her family's esteem.


With a steady source of money from his various investments he settled into a early retirement, content to tinker and pursue his whims and flights of fancy in an idyllic little estate far away from the concerns of day to day life.


Or so he imagined.


it was on an idle afternoon whilst he flipped through the various foreign channels available to him with a particularly...illegal and quite undetectable modification to his set that he came across a live report of a brawl between various vibrantly costumed heroes and villains fighting in the streets of some american city he'd never even heard of before and was instantly hooked; the vibrant costumes, the drama, the witicism!....the challenge.


rushing to his garage (and leaving his latest confectionery experiment to burn) he set to work immediately cobbling together the drafts for a personal platform even has he rabidly thummed through his smartphone looking at various up market properties in that same city.


Personality & Motivation:
A larger than life bon vivant of tremendous charisma and titanic intellect max is driven to heroism by his ego and hunger for challenge that his day to day activities have failed to provide, though he is far from malicious he is selfish (and driven, brilliant, rich he would hasten to add) he tends to have extreme moods as his emotions are more strongly felt, though he is normally benevolent and something of a party animal, he is equally strongly predisposed to more negative emotions as well, he has a love for flamboyant clothes, eccentric hobbies and theatrics which he regularly indulges in and it is the primary reason he took up the responsability of being a hero.


Powers & Tactics:
Maximilian is a genius inventor, astride his personal combat platform he is capable of raining down long range destruction alongside booming boasts and thundering taunts to opponents with a preferance for opponents who are either on equal footing or far beneath his capabilities by his own assessment, a hero isnt a hero without minions to sweep aside and villains to clash with are they? he has reccently (and regretfully) learned that his superhuman intellect is allowed by a unique mutation in his neural matter that allows him to store a tremendous ammount of bio-electricity to supercharge his brain,  that self same electricty can also be released from his head as an omnidirectional (and quite indiscriminate) burst of blue-white electricity though he is loath to use this ability as it shorts his brain a little and the first involuntary triggering of it ignited his hair.


Power Descriptions:
Most of Max's powers are derived from implausibly advanced technology and as such have sleek and clean looks to them as they blast torrents of lime green energy at his foes, offset by the bluewhite electricity he can naturally emit from his cranium 


Electromagnetic Moodswings: Though he is quite moody naturally; Due to his brain hosting a gargantuan charge of electricity max's very mind can be affected and even altered by the influence of powerful magnetic fields, such as those produced by a MRI scanner these can be harmless such as inexplicable giggling that makes him short of breath and unable to communicate or harmful to himself and others such as violent unreasoning rages that result in him blasting lighting from his head, ruining his attire, haircut, expensive medical equipment and even the nicest of doctors tollerance for lovable eccentrics


Shadows of the past: though he has declawed them financially his mothers family are still quite rich and angry  about his decisions regarding Max Tech , weather they know he is Mila's son he doesn't know nor does he care,  so far they have only sent rather harmless thugs to try and intimidate him but with his continued taunting and humiliation of them he may yet evoke more firey responses from the humiliated but far from humbled noble family.


Sins of the Father: That his father was a nazi scientist (albeit for an extremely short time) is unknown to Max, perhaps for the best, as such he is unsure as to why various affiliates of the failed reich show great intrest in him and his father's work, though he is quite happy to have such audacious villains as them constantly lining up for him to knock down like bowling pins.


Synaptic short: though he is able to retain somewhat of his intellect and mind from unleashing his brainstorm there have been isolated cases of it rendering him a drooling, catatonic idiot, not something he is keen to admit either and he will go to great lengths to supress any information regarding it.


Blowing a fuse: Max's moods are legendarily famous and infamous and extreme anger can lead to him involuntarily giving people (and anything else in 50ft of him) a literal taste of his brainpower.
