Making MHR Characters: Gamecock (ANOHotMU #4)

Serious props to Derrick J. Wyatt for this fantastic picture.
Okay, so there's pretty much no way that this character isn't horrible. Dangit, Cap, you're a great character, but between Mother Superia and now a black guy dressed in a rooster costume with "razor-sharp claws," you have some of the most troublesome bad guys that I somehow missed back when I was collecting your comics.

Well, Gamecock showed up in 1975, a year before I was born so I think I get a pass on missing this guy. Still, guh, awful. Thankfully he's out of the comics now, having been killed by Puma in . . . in a bloodsport match? Dangit, Marvel, this is why we can't have nice things.

Anyhow, I statted him up as a minor villain, the kind that can either fit in during an early fight with some mooks at his back, or in a crowd scene. And, yes, the Limit on his Martial Arts Training means that he can stress himself out of a fight. Let's face it - how long do you actually want this guy to be on the stage?
