Making MHR Characters: Fight-Man (ANOHotMU #4)

Frank Bigelow is an idiot with a violent temper and the self-control one typically associates with a toddler.

Unfortunately, he pretty much has the Superman suite of super-powers. Somewhat hilariously, he also premiered at the start of the 90s, when Marvel was going through its extreme phase, with overly violent heroes in virtually every title.

I've never read a Fight-Man comic, but the descriptions I've read caused me to write this profile with this question in mind: "What would happen if Superman were an idiot with no basic sense of decency?"

What also stuck out to me is that he really does seem to make most of his own problems - this is a great character to play if you're the kind of player who wants to play a character that makes life more complicated for everyone. Really, he sounds like an ideal character for the Watcher to bring in as an "ally" who's more trouble than he's worth.
