So...what am I going to do? It is the age old problem of finding out who the sixth man is.
I have had some great suggestions for the sixth member of the superhero team that I am building and I am getting to a point where I am going to have to make my mind up because I am nearly finished with four of the six...and I need to be thinking about how the sixth man will be posed by now, rather than deciding who it will be.
What I am after is a mid-level brawler who can soak up the punishment and keep fighting.
He has to fit in with my super-serum/technological/genetic theme (so no weird powers/abilities) and ideally, must be slightly quirky.
On the cards are:
Beast (original, human looking but with big hands/feet)
Wolverine (ruled out for being too killy)
Luke Cage - Power Man
Collossus (ruled out for being in the too weird category)
I haven't ruled out Luke Cage but I am not sold on him. The original Beast is a bit boring looking and the hairy Beast is a worry for me...I don't want him to look like a teddy bear! Sabretooth suffers from the same hair problem as Beast.
So I am currently torn between Captain Britain, Captain America and Puck!
I ruled Captain America out a while ago for being a bit niche/boring but I can't rule him out because, quite frankly, I am running out of contenders!
Captain Britain is a cool character and he could easily have his background replaced by a super-serum due to his powers just being strength, agility, toughness and fighting prowess. He is probably the second contender at the moment...
But...how cool would a tiny, mid level brawler be? A REALLY tiny mid level brawler. One that is about 15mm tall (in miniature form)...
...and I am finding myself drawn towards the challenge of sculpting Puck. Whether or not I can rise (or shrink) to the challenge, is yet to be seen but I will give it a go, I think.
...but I am starting to think that Captain Britain, with his golden hair, red costume and staff, would make a characterful addition to the team.
Suggestions are still very welcome!
See you from the pool of radioactive waste!
