I've sympathized with the Fixer/Techno since Thunderbolts began.
I know how can you sympathize with this guy who seemingly doesn't care about anyone but himself? Well I can.
He is the guy who puts on a front that nothing can bother him, that he's gregarious, he lets you know up front he can't be trusted, that he doesn't care about people. But he does care...he just can't let anyone see that he cares because if he does then he can exploited. He comes off as someone who doesn't care about others but he is also the guy always fixing everyone else's problems and never his own. He respects people like Zemo because he is devious...he respects cunning more than virtue. He is up front about his faults yet people still want to give him the benefit of the doubt anyways...because he IS honest about how shady he is. He will lie, cheat and steal but he never pretends that he isn't that guy. He doesn't feign interest in how you're doing. He doesn't pretend to be your best friend. He says what's on his mind whether it is appropriate to say or not.
He's me on paper.
