Finally, a piece I actually kinda like.

This is my main villain from City of Villains, "the Restrained." I always hoped they would get around to throwing in big cloaks instead of just the capes because this is the kind of look I would like him to have in-game.

I kinda just wanted to go for a mood here rather than any sort of action. The Restrained is a prowler, a creature of the night, I guess you might say. He is a mutant whos special power is the ability to manipulate the part of the human brain that senses fear, the amygdala. Needless to say that since everyone is afraid of coming anywhere near him he spent a lot of time alone when he was young. The feelings of abandonment and resentment built up over the years, growing stronger until he finally decided that he would us his powers to make his own life better at the expense of others. Now he roams the Rogue Isles, stalking his victims, stealing from villainous organizations and lashing out at heroes who try to intervene. He is now in his late 70s and has been murdering and wreaking havoc for so long that he has lost all trace of humanity or decency.
Here he is emerging from his hidden lair in order to walk the streets in a rainstorm, searching for his next victim.

This picture kind of looks like something I'd expect to see in Spawn. Very nice, I like.

Aha! I would be his arch-nemesis "damaged amygdala man".
Absolutely no power over me. That is, unless he has other powers o_0
