Powers and Abilities

The Boar can turn into a huge and superhumanly strong porcine form ; changing back and forth seems quick and effortless. His human form seems to retain the Skills of his boar form, but to have every Attribute at 02 and no Powers.


History

The Boar is a very minor superhuman criminal, with only one documented appearance. After a heist, he drove away in his beat-up car, but got chased by Spider-Man. Trying to lose the web-crawler, he pushed a school bus off a bridge, leaving Spidey to web the bus so it wouldn’t fall, then drag it back to safety.

Continuing to drive away, the villain lost control of his car over a very large puddle, and crashed into a lamppost. Emerging from the wreck and seeing that the dollar bills from his heist were now all over the wreck and the street, he decided for no clear reason that the crash had been caused by a mutant and accused a random nearby vagrant of being “a mutie”.

Turning into the Boar, he smashed the poor homeless man into a wall, then turned to backhand a kid taking photos.

The Boar was unlucky, though – the vagrant, recently deceased, was now the host for… Beta Ray Bill’s soul. Turning into his alien/divine form, the formidable warrior smashed the Boar with his mallet in a solid Planned Knockback, sending the brute sailing over the Manhattan skyline, right into Spider-Man.

After a short confusion, the two heroes knocked the Boar out and left him webbed up for the police to find.


Description

See illustration.


Personality

The Boar seems to be a poseur (a White boy with a strong Xbox/rap culture, who thinks he’s an OG), a violent criminal and a bully, all rolled into one. His courage varies very quickly and in direct proportion to how on top of the situation he feels.

Go ahead and make him into a symbol of everything you dislike in the trailer or gamer cultures – he’s at the junction of the two. Or just make him a generic loser villain with some funny rap and video gaming references if you don’t dislike anything. :-)
