Making MHR Characters: Fixer (ANOHotMU #4)

Paul Norbert Ebersol has been around for a while in the Marvel universe, and yet he's very much the same guy he was at the start - a guy who's really good at making incredibly complicated machines out of thin air, has a genuinely unpleasant demeanor and who just plain loves committing crimes.

There's something to be said for the classics.

This is, however, the more modern, Tech Pack, Thunderbolts-y Fixer. He's pretty potent, with a lot of depth in his one power set, but nonetheless I think he works well.

By the way, I can hear you complaining, "Buddy is 1d6? WTH? Do you not remember his long-term partnership with Mentallo?" To which I respond, go back and read about it, then come back and your case. Yeah, they worked together for a long time, and they were terrible. That and, well, Affiliations change over time anyway.

What I'm most looking forward to is building Forge - I think he's coming up next week - and comparing him to Fixer. Honestly, Fixer should blow Forge out of the water as the latter's claim to fame is that he ruins everything he touches by trying to improve it.
