Making MHR Characters ANOHotMU:U #2: Jean-Paul DuChamp

This is another tough-ish one because DuChamp is:
A supporting character
To a B-list hero
Who's gone through several iterations
This is the man your pilot could smell like.
As has DuChamp

I mean, I love Moon Knight, I really do, but he's been everything from a Batman knockoff to a 90s Xtreme vengeance machine to a pseudo-mystical to a semi-serious take on the personality-altering act of being a street-level hero, and DuChamp's been with him in each incarnation. So, which DuChamp do I pick?

In the end, I'm going with the DuChamp who supported him in his Batman knockoff days. For one, I'm most familiar with him, and for another, he doesn't have weird, poorly-defined superpowers and has use of both of his legs. Okay, yes, I shouldn't discriminate based on disabilities, but I don't like the plotline that lead to one of the few openly gay characters in the Marvel universe getting bashed around and, seriously, Batman knockoff DuChamp is pretty boss. I mean, he's got the Mooncopter, people.
