Making MHR Characters: Richard Fisk (ANOHotMU #4)

Well, it's been a couple of weeks, but we're back at it. We're about halfway through the book with the week's entries, and I've learned a few things:
1. Less can be more, especially for a villain or character who isn't the main focus of the scene.
2. If a power has a 1d6 listed, justify it.
3. Make characters you want to play.

Our first character tonight is one of my favourite Spidey villains: Richard Fisk. Yeah, I know, not a popular choice, but I really like the guy. Well, not in the sense that I think he's a misunderstood hero or something, but in the sense that he's compelling and I want to see more of him. Complex, many layered and (checks Marvel Wiki article) dead? Ah, man, Marvel, why?

Anyhow, this write-up is from his time as Blood Rose, both because I think it's his coolest costume (although I can't find a good image online) and because it's a useful one for the purposes of statting. Like I said above, less is more with some villains, and Richard Fisk was only occasionally the focus of a Spider story, and even then it had a lot more to do with his many, many Specialties than his acumen as a fighter or anything.
