Making MHR Characters: Eric the Red (ANOHotMU #4)

Here we are, about a third of the way through the book, with another character I've read a couple of comics for! Woo hoo! Slightly familiarity!

Eric the Red is the alias of Davan Shakari, a Shi'ar secret agent secretly sent to secretly monitor humanity from his secret base. He eventually meets up with the X-Men, who somehow are not fooled my his remarkable incognitoness. I can't imagine why. I mean, look at that costume.

Seriously, the guy looks like he escape from from an S&M Carnivale float.

And, honestly, that's not the whole truth, there. He was assigned to spy on superpowerful people on Earth and "deal with" anyone who might be a threat to the Shi'ar empire and, believing the X-Men to be a threat, set out to kill them. Oh, and the name and the look of the costume? Yeah, that's from a time when Scott Summers had to infiltrate a group of supervillains.

Yes, this look was originally on the body of Scott Summers. I know. I know. Take a walk. Breathe into a paper bag. It's okay, you'll forget eventually.

Anyhow, yeah, he's shown up a few times since then. In addition to his superior Shi'ar physiology, his costume's actually an advanced weapon system, enhancing his strength, reflexes and stamina and giving him the ability to fire energy blasts. Not a bad deal, really.
