Making MHR Characters ANOHotMU:U #2: Avalanche

36 years of history, but this is how
I picture him.
Many of the members of the Brotherhood of Evil have long, complicated storylines that weave together with
the lives of the X-Men in intriguing and fascinating ways.

Avalanche? He's there to destroy stuff - for preference, the X-Men. He's just kind of a jerk who likes breaking stuff, which is refreshingly straightforward for an X-men villain. Yeah, he's gone along with some of the more complicated, "villains pretending to be superheroes," plots, but ultimately it just comes down to fighting superheroes and he likes that. He likes that just fine.

I didn't make him terribly complicated. His power set is basically limited to his Seismic Control, but it's a versatile power, one that he's had for a very long while, so he has a pretty impressive number of SFX, offset by having two Limits to represent his one constant - when he uses his powers to try to hurt people directly, it just doesn't work out for him. Ever. I mean, admittedly the most memorable time, he tried to use it against the Hulk, which is just a bad idea. but he's never really had much success with just whacking people with seismic waves.
