Speed Comics #1 - pt. 3
This is Spike Marlin. This is not the first time we've seen whalers in the comics. This is the first time, though, that the whaling has been background detail. The real scenario here is the mutinous attack on Spike while the rest of the crew is fighting the whale.
This is Smoke Carter. Note how the gangsters are car-based; the 2nd ed. write-up will also be car-based.
Am I going to have to stat brutes as something new? I was going to treat them as a sub-category of thug, but this looks more like a flesh golem...
Oh, and this is Landor, Maker of Monsters.
Three air speeds (though I can probably get that from Wikipedia too).
This is Biff Bannon of the United States Marines, but I share it for the yellow peril hoodlums, and demonstrating that they can be armed with handguns and rifles too, not just daggers and hatchets.
