Moloids and Mole Man (Fantastic 4 enemies) (Marvel Comics)

Moloid with a scooter gun

He is your new role-model


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Context

Meet my new favourite comic book character. He appeared in 1964, in a Fantastic Four adventure titled “The Mad Menace of the Macabre Mole Man!”.

Alas, the staggering, fantastic value of this revelatory character find went unappreciated by the stodgy powers-that-be. In a better world he would have been the next Spider-Man, the next Wolverine, or at least the next Forbush Man. The Marvel Cinematic Universe would have been born from the box office smash that was the movie about him.

Alas, this world is to us denied. We can but dream. Dream, and hope.

Powers & Abilities

An ordinary Moloid, though our game stats assume that he’s unusually dashing and charismatic… by Moloid standards.

He drives a funky small vehicle with some sort of cannon. Our game stats assume a vibration gun with a telescopic sight to compensate for the Moloids’ terrible eyesight.


Personality

Like any Moloid, he follows the Mole Man’s orders. And thus he’s drivin’ and shootin’ like it’s subterranean San Andreas.
