Hey guys, I'm rather new here. I've recently started writing a book around the premise of powered people, or super heroes. I'm trying to make all my characters sympathetic and realistic with good motives for whatever their actions may be. Enter one of my villains, Connor McKennon, or to some, Mister Misery. And yes I realize the name is hokey, it's meant to harken back to golden and silver age heroes. His ability is to send signals to nerve endings, creating pain in people. Now, here is where his character developed. Having been the result if some experimentation with genetics himself, he is both fascinated and appalled with empowered individuals. The abilities astound him the actions that come as a result of these powers have him convinced that nobody knows how to handle these powers responsibly other than himself. As such, his aim is to have all gifted individuals under the thumb of a strong government, with him ideally at the helm. Calvin has begun experimentation at a few locations under the guise of advancing medical research in his company, McKennon Medical. He has become increasingly estranged with his family, and has to cover the secret of his father's death, which he caused as a child. EDIT: Hobbies include golf, reading, and genetic experimentation. Extremely charismatic to the public eye, and does a host of charitable things. Behind closed doors he is a recluse bent on "saving" humanity from these perceived threats. As far as weaknesses go, in terms of constitution, he is a normal man. Often he is obsessed and egotistical. Think evil Tony Stark (which Superior Iron Man actually kind of did) but with even more obsession. Well there you have it. Any suggestions? I am open to anything, whether it be motive changes or personality traits. Thanks so much!
