@strigidae_23: It was the same in Young X-Men. Take Anole. Beside having a name that is really, really, really, REALLY unfortunate for a gay mutant he had a bad@$$ power that he shares with Killizard: To mimic every quality of any reptile. Do you have a slight idea how strong a crocodile is? How acute the senses of a snake are? How deadly the poison of an Inland Taipan is? How long the tongue of a human sized chameleon can reach? What advantage the wall climbing of a simple Gecko can give you, not only the wall crawling but also in grappling in melee? That you will NEVER recover from the bite of a Komodo Varan, no matter what you do since the wound will never fully heal and even periodically break up? And I didn't even include extinct species like the flying dinosaurs yet. The list knows no end.
Dang, now I feel like creating a Killizard account. lol
Oh my God you should do this! I love his name! And that sounds freakin' awesome! I wanted to fight him with Anya, who's kinda like that but with cats (less diversity, but still), in the Breakout RP.
Plus when I was trying to think of what she'd call herself as a super hero, my most favorite (because it made me laugh) that I came up with was Ferocikitty. Oh! Or Ferokitty! Which is doubly so! Because on paper it's like you take ferocity and kitty and combine them, but if you say it out loud a certain way it sounds like Feral Kitty....but like someone who has a hard time saying feral. Come to think of it I could also just go simple and call her Feral Kitty.
But also if you don't do that I'm totally stealing that power for someone in the future. Maybe. I don't think there are any female lizards around, at least not prominent. But then I could also be flexible with that. But I digress! Post over.
