Context

This is technically Fin II — Marvel Comics had another Fin (Peter Noble) who first appeared in 1941. This here Fin (no other name known) first appeared in 1990, and was primarily seen in the pages of Silver Sable and the Wild pack in 1993-4. He’s a big brawny mercenary, which is always useful.

The main illustration is fan art by RonnieThunderbolts, since it’s by far the clearest depiction of Fin that I know of.

Powers and Abilities

Fin is a powerful brick , with superhuman strength and toughness and excellent hand-to-hand fighting abilities.

It is *possible* that he’s an Atlantean mutant. Or a Human-Atlantean hybrid mutant like Namor or Namorita.

Fin has a natural sonar sense. He enjoys using it to mentally perform physics calculations – speeds, vectors and the like.


History

“Fin” isn’t his actual name, but he has never given a more suitable one. He appeared as a member of the Next Wave, a group of young superhuman mercenaries.

Although relations between the Next Wave and her Wild Pack weren’t good, Silver Sable took note of Fin’s strength and easily-ordered nature. In 1993, she hired him to become a part of her new superhuman squad, the Intruders.

Personality

Fin always, always wants to fight and hit things.

However, he’s not aggressive about this. He simply states every few minutes that he’d like to fight. He seems to be about hitting things like the Cookie Monster is about cookies. Fin usually suggests getting into a fight as the solution to everything, and considers that hitting things makes people happier.

He also always reminds people that his name is not Fin. His name was embarrassing and so he forgot it. And he has no alternative to being called Fin, since he’s seemingly devoid imagination. But he knows that his name is not Fin.

Fin is a physics geek. He uses his sonar to amuse himself. He also wants to learn about classical culture, such as opera. His main problem with the latter is that, being a stranger, he’s completely socially clueless. For instance, he had no idea jeans and T-shirt were not appropriate operawear.

His general behaviour can evoke some autistic symptoms. But there’s a good chance that it’s not a medically correct diagnosis.

Powell : “Get that boy a vocabulary.”

“I send a signal toward a moving object a hundred times per second and time the distance. Or I count the millimetres it moves per second. I could figure out what it weighs from the pressure ratios on the tires, too… I like to figure stuff out.”
