Thanks a lot for the feedback guys!

– Go right ahead! I’m definitely going to try tweaking Spitfire’s design a little bit myself, but I’d be interested to see what you came up with – that goes for everything else, by the way. If anyone fancies taking a stab at one of my characters, then feel free.

@WMDBASSPLAYER – I was hoping the gloves would disguise the holsters and just make them look like drop leg pouches, but I guess they’re a bit moot considering he doesn’t have that much in the way of equipment to carry. And yes, Rorschach was one of the primary influences for London Fog but now that you mention it he does look pretty Sandman-esque doesn’t he?

Anyway, I think that’s enough heroes to be going on with. Let’s get some villians up in here.

First off – Señor Muerte, a super-powered drug lord who became one of the most powerful men in South America through the illicit fortune he inherited from his father, who was assassinated by US special forces. With the collapse of the Colombian cartels in the 1990s, he shifted his base of operations to Mexico, killing off the competition whose loyalty he couldn’t buy – intel gathered by the Policía Federal Ministerial suggests he’s personally overseen more than 80% of the major drug trafficking operations into the United States since the 1990s, and he’s allegedly been involved with Brazilian and Nicaraguan arms dealers in the past.

A formidable hand-to-hand combatant and skilled marksman who is rumoured to have been financed by the CIA, he possess powerful psychic and psionic abilities including extrasensory perception, telepathy, telekinesis, and mind control, which many conspiracy theorists believe is related to the Agency’s interest in the effects of drugs on the human mind, as with operations such as MKULTRA.

When Señor Muerte wants someone dead, they end up dead. If he can’t be bothered to do it himself, he sends El Verdugo.

Like his employer, the one referred to in hushed whispers as “El Gordo” (though never to his face) is shrouded in mystery but he is known to be personally responsible for at least 300 deaths and is more than likely guilty of the hundreds of others he is suspected of.

Standing at over six feet tall and weighing in excess of 350 pounds, El Verdugo a reasonably skilled hand-to-hand fighter, an experienced sumo wrestler, and has extensive knowledge of torture and murder techniques; he also possess superhuman strength and durability. Disdaining the use of guns in spite of his weight and their availability, he prefers to dispatch his opponents with blunt objects like machetes, meat cleavers, and occasionally lengths of rope and/or chain. His most common weapon of choice is an enormous battle axe that five lesser men would struggle to lift together; his preferred method of execution is reportedly decapitation, and other unconfirmed reports state that he has been known to eat his victims.
