Subj: Do you think that a new villain named the Assassin Bug would work ?
Posted: Mon Jan 16, 2017 at 10:35:21 am EST (Viewed 30 times)


His costume would be like Spider-Man except that :
- it would be purple & green instead of red & blue ( http://comicvine.gamespot.com/profile/captaincockblock/lists/green-and-purple-the-colors-of-evil/35647/ ),
- with a 6-legged bug symbol instead of the 8-legged spider and without a web design on the chest.
The bug symbol would probably look a bit like the stylised insect on Goldbug costume when the villain appeared in Spectacular Spider-Man #62.

Powers, abilities & equipment :
- superhuman strength, reflexes, and balance on par with Spider-Man, thanks to Stillwells' mutagenic equipment used by Charles Goss

- professional assassin, master tactician, gifted hunter, expert hacker, extensive knowledge of sophisticated experimental technology, especially stealth technology
- micro-suction cups on fingertips and toes permitting him to cling to walls and ceilings (invented by Soviet scientists and also used by Black Widow)
- Spider-sense jammer invented & provided by Mysterio ( https://whyevolutionistrue.wordpress.com/2013/02/15/the-assassin-bug-aggressive-mimicry-of-prey/ )
- spring-loaded wrist-shooters propelling projectiles (invented and provided by Klaus Voorhees, the Cobra) containing a poison derived from insect toxin ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insect_toxin )
- Jet pack : "Bug Pod" invented and provided by the Tinkerer ( http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix/binarybg.htm ) and improved thanks to Beetle aircraft technology invented by Abner Jenkins and Vulture aircraft technology invented by Adrian Toomes
