Thug (X-Men enemy) (Marvel Comics)

Thug

(Sublime Corporation)


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

Context

Thug and the rest appeared during a minor X-Men story arc, in 2009. They are convenient, somewhat generic mutant muscle and enforcers. So that’s useful.

For context, you should first read the Lobe character profile.


Background

  • Real Name: Unrevealed.
  • Marital Status: Single.
  • Known Relatives: None.
  • Group Affiliation: Sublime Corporation.
  • Base Of Operations: Various Sublime Corp. facilities.
  • Height: 5’8” Weight: 170 lbs.
  • Eyes: Unrevealed. Hair: Bald.


Powers & Abilities

Thug is virtually indestructible, and impervious to pain. But his heavy scarring shows that his power don’t stop the surface of his body getting damaged.

He’s an okay fighter. But he mainly seems to let himself get beaten up to distract opponents so his teammates can beat on them.


History

See Lobe’s entry for most of what’s known of his history.


Personality

Thug doesn’t tend to say much, pretty much doing as he’s told.

He has no compunction getting into fights, certain his opponents can’t hurt him.


Quotes

“Yup.”

Cyberpathic Combat Enhancements

Having catalogued the genome and fighting style of almost all known mutants, the Sublime Corporation’s supercomputer can download strategies to fight them into cybernetic implants in Thug’s mind.

This allows him to predict and avoid their attacks, and strike past their defences. Which gives him Power Reserve (OV): 04 and Weakness Detection: 08 when fighting a scanned mutant (as long as the computer isn’t interfered with).
