So if you need a random encounter — which is pretty much what he was in the comics — he’s fine. Or if you want to add a body to a team of opponents. Or, going in the other direction, you want a F-lister to develop into a fuller character.

Powers and Abilities

The Shooter has two comic book firearms :

  1. A heavily modified .50 BMG machinegun.
  2. A wrist-mounted shotgun loaded with explosive slugs.

He’s a decent shooter, but he’s dumb as a plank.


History

The Shooter was just a one-shot annoyance. He tried to ice Daredevil (Matt Murdock) and Spider-Man (Peter Parker) as they were having a sandwich and chatting on a rooftop.

He didn’t fare well.


Description

See illustration.


Personality

A loud, and very, very, very dumb slab of beef.

He thinks he’s really, really tough and can kill anybody. But he’s also very gullible. Daredevil effortlessly convinced him that killing Spider-Man would be more beneficial for the Shooter, and spend half the fight just chatting with the Shooter while standing next to him and assessing the safest way to take him down.

The Shooter *will* fall for any ploy, no matter how classic.


Quotes

“I’m the Shooter – and I’m gonna make a rep by taking out the guy who gave the Kingpin so much trouble.”

“Hey ! He’s right ! You’re not movin’ at all ! You’d be a real easy target !”

“Still breathing ! I bet a few hundred bullets will stop that !”
