That was a really fun run in Nightwing comics. Having a roided-up cowboy using nunchucks makes me realize why I love comics.

Design Notes
This is Rhino a Batman enemy. Offensively he is PL 6 unarmed. Defensively he is PL 5.5 due to Parry and Toughness. Rhino met Scarface in prison and was impressed with the puppet's boldness and cleverness. He has been a loyal henchmen ever since.

Interesting what you find out when you research a character. Rhino though pretty dumb was able to learn ventriloquism by reading a book. Grant you the first time it happened was by accident when a bunch of thugs were about to beat him up. He spoke through the Scarface dummy which was nearby and it distracted the thugs and inspired him. I did not realize that ventriloquism actually falls under the communication power. I was trying to figure out the best way to model it. Also Rhino is really huge in some books and just a big guy in others. I gave him some growth nonetheless. Nice to have a henchmen with something unique.

Huh- I had no idea Rhino came from the comics. I thought he was an Animated Series original.

Design Notes
This is the Spinner a Batman enemy. Offensively he can be up to PL 6 using equipment or gadgets. Defensively he is PL 6 due to Dodge/Parry and Toughness. The Spinner went by the name Swami Ymar. He committed crimes with a small band of thugs centered around the theme of spinning objects. He also posed as a mystic who built a reputation of finding lost objects. But it was his lackeys who broke into homes and hid the valuable items. He planned to retire after amassing a small fortune and was going to frame 'Peanuts' Gibson for the crimes he committed as the Spinner. In his guise of Swami Ymar he helped the police and Batman to find the hideout. The Spinner rigged the place to explode but Batman figured that out in time and was able to save everyone at the windmill which was the Spinner's hideout. Batman then caught the real Spinner.

The Spinner uses a lot of one time gadgets which his equipment and inventor advantages would cover. He used a gun that shot spinning blades (Blast 4, multiattack), a stationary color glass-impregnated fan when it spins blinds opponents using sunlight (Affliction 8 affecting visuals plus dazed and stunned limited to requiring sunlight), a big spinning cone-shaped cannon on wheels that shoots a sticky substance (Snare 6), a giant spinning top ( an out of control vehicle that slams into anything in it's way), and a giant spinning fan with Batwoman attached to one of it's blades. Fun Silver Age character. He only appeared in one issue.

I thought there was more than one Spinner and that they played out of Detroit.

I'll be 50 on my next birthday. My taste in music, however, will be 75.
