Making MHR Characters: Don Fortunato (ANOHotMU #4)

This is what fighting Don Fortunato should
feel like, in your soul.
Don Fortunato, like most Italian people in Marvel Comics, exists so that The Punisher has someone to shoot at. I mean, sorry if that sounds kind of crass or anything, but it's pretty much a truism that if you're a Marvel character and your last name's Italian, you're either a minor character, or you work for one of the many, many organized crime syndicates on Earth-616, and one of the syndicates that's basically the Mafia with the serial numbers filed off.

Not all of these people are shot at by the Punisher or, at least that wasn't how things always were. Some times you might get beaten up by Daredevil or Spiderman!

Seriously, though, Don Fortunato is pretty much your standard Mafia boss and is something like a nonagenarian. That makes it challenging to make HIM a challenge. If done so here by giving him the ability to easily create assets and stunts that can serve to protect him - the way I see it, the fight against Don Fortunato actually starts once you get inside the perimeter of his estate, with the Don throwing gunmen at the good guys while the good guys attack his mental stress track by drawing. Ever. Closer.
