Well, I've read Amazing Spiderman 692, looked at that Alpha-kid. And noticed that I've already seen that somewhere...
Right, that was about six months ago, maybe more, I was going to make a new character for RPG, and thought that there's almost no enthusiastic superheroes around this days. So I decided to stick to the classics - made a college student, whose scientific adviser turned out to be Mad Scientist. So after a Freaky Lab Accident with one of his gizmous, my Adam Wilkinson got amazing powers of super-strength, stamina and resilience, stole rocket-boots from the lab and flew away to fight crime. Then I spliced a bit of anime in it, and said that his powers come from cosmic Getter-Rays, constantly developing and adapting his body - endlessly. That made "Getterman" a potential global threat, capable absorbing all biomass on Earth, if left unchecked. Adam, of course, totally digs his new powers and delights in using them, just barely masking his identity.
Um, sorry, I didn't mean to ramble about some OC but I need to illustrate my point. Two days ago I read ASM 692. Sooo, this Alpha-kid is a student... And he got his amazing powers from a Freaky Lab Accident, when experiment went Horribly Wrong... Right, that... Well, that's just to draw parallels with Spiderman, right?.. Um, ok, so his Andys new powers include amazing strength, stamina and resilience... Flight and force-blasts too, yes. Wait, what's that Reed saying? His power comes from Univerce itself? Like cosmic power, right? Hmmm... You say they're will grow endlessly? And potentially can become a global threat? Meh, who cares? Of course Andy totally digs his new powers and delights in using them, not even bothering with secret identity... Oh, and just look at that fabulous anime-hair!
Apparently, it's easy to predict new marvel characters... Hm, or maybe I need to work in Marvel, if I already think their characters in the future? Or maybe I'm ALREADY WORKING IN MARVEL?! O_____O
