    well, I should clarify that Skeleton's swords are of the short variety and closer to machetes, so somewhat more plausible to throw

    besides, not everyone can be F'ng Gilgamesh from F/SN

    Also, comics. Captain America, Green Arrow, Hawkeye, Captain Boomerang and Bullseye have all been making weapons do improbable things for decades.

    double act: Skullduggery is obsessed with destroying Cliffhanger's life, but their enmity has become such that Skullduggery needs the hero in his own life
    motivation - Misery loves company: Skullduggery only feels some measure of contentment when making people lose everything
    nobody: no one suspects that nebbish failure Leonard Braxton is the flamboyant Skullduggery
    pun-ishment: Skullduggery loves spouting macabre witticisms and cheap puns, thinking he's hilarious
    sore loser: when he's losing or particularly insulted, Skullduggery has a habit of flying into berserk rages with no concern for his own safety
    tell him what he's won: Skullduggery's persona is that of a game show host, and he eagerly embraces his shtick's cliches
    your big chance: Skullduggery is still sore over losing his dream job as a game show host

    Leonard Braxton was a nobody, a nebbish little man whose only loves were books and game shows, a dreamed of becoming the host to the latter. Eventually, he plucked up all of his meagre courage and auditioned for a position on a new game show, and succeeded. each night, contestants would face him three on one in a contest of trivia, needing their numbers to match his encyclopedic knowledge of trivia, not helped as Leonard started realizing he could read minds. for this shining period, he was happy.

    but then the show was cancelled, the network executives all to eager to blame Leonard to cover up their bungling, and he was devastated. the last straw came when a stage hand rubbed salt in the wound by telling him his jokes weren't funny. Leonard's mind snapped, and he beat the man to death with a nearby prop before fleeing the scene, concealing his face with a skeleton mask from a horror show.

    when he tried coming to terms with what he'd done, Leonard's madness deepened. he knew for certain now that he was meant to be miserable, to never have anything of worth ever again. And if he couldn't be happy, neither could anyone else. he would seek out those who "had everything", and he would take it all away, destroying their lives to watch their joy turn to horror, before he finally kills them. thus was born Skullduggery, the horrible host of the harsh game show that is life

    from 1837 to 1904, the kingdom of England was haunted by the back-alley boogeyman the papers would call Spring-Heeled Jack, a seemingly supernatural being notorious for supernatural leaping ability, sharp claws, breathing gouts of blue flame and terrorizing, even harming those who came upon him. in 1966, a creature claimng to be the very same Spring-Heeled Jack took to prowling the alleys and rooftops of Metazon, back and more maliciously brutal in his 'pranks', swiftly earning the attention and pursuit of Lacie Delmont, supernatural investigator.

    abilities 56 + powers 63 + advantages 5 + skills 34/68 + defenses 22 = 180the first Liege Lord was Hans Kessler, promoted from Hitler's bodyguards to one of the mighty Ubersoldaten. over the course of the European front of WW2, Liege Lord would suffer numerous defeats at the fists of Atlas Man, and would ultimately survive the war by fleeing into a quiet life in the German countryside.

    But, he would raise his son Karl in his image, teaching him to hate Atlas Man, to take revenge on the hero one day in his father's place. to this end, Karl took up the study and ways of black magic, advantages his father never dreamed of. but it would wait from 1950 to 1966, when Atlas Man Vanished and ultimately returned. renewing his oath of vengeance upon his father's deathbed, karl donned the restored and upgraded Liege Lord battle armor, knowing that once he destroyed Atlas Man, it was now his destiny to rule the world as its sorcerer king

    straddling the line between organized crime and super-crime, Johnny Banelli was born with stone-like hands, and became a mobster after his temper got him kicked out of the United States Secret Service. rising through the ranks of the Craymore family, Gravestone was allowed to start his own criminal organization, and is now one of the most powerful crooks in all of Metazon. More recently, Gravestone has earned the loyalty of and marriage to Crystal Wilson, a former undercover police offer who betrayed the thin blue line for him
