Powers and Abilities

The Boar can turn into a huge and superhumanly strong porcine form. Changing back and forth seems quick and effortless.


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 (Peter Parker). Trying to lose the web-crawler, he pushed a school bus off a bridge. Spidey was stuck webbing the bus then dragging it back to safety.

Continuing to drive away, the villain crashed his car into a lamppost. His loot was scattered all over the street. The Boar randomly decided that the crash had been caused by a mutant and accused a 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.

However, the homeless man was actually a fresh corpse holding Beta Ray Bill’s soul. Turning into his alien/divine form, the formidable warrior smashed the Boar with his mallet. This sent the brute sailing over the Manhattan skyline, right into Spider-Man.

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


Description

See illustration.


Personality

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

“I got 5-0 after me. You messed up my pimpin’ ride, an’ lost me my ducats, yo ! Now, I’m gonna open up a can o’ crunk on yo’ ass — fo’ shizzle ! Time to go hog-wild ! Hog-wild like… THE BOAR !”

“What you think you’re doing, yo ? I’m about to get all San Andreas on yo ass, fool ! Get ready for the R1, R2, R1, L1, R2 !”

“Look, just… I’m just… I’m gonna walk away. I don’t wanna fight anymore… I’m just gonna go. That guy’s crazy !”
