Origin/Description

Max Damage (Actual Name is Evan, last name unknown) was once a Super Villain, regarded as one of the worst possible. Max killed countless people, and even a kid. However, one day while Max was preparing to fight Plutonian, Plutonian just ignored him and started killing everyone in sight. After Max witnessed how the Force of Justice could just become a Force of Nature so easily, Max took it upon himself to become a hero. However, Max doesn't actually knows what that means and has a very hard time figuring it out. Max's only morals lie in absolutely zero tolerance for crime no matter how big or small. Max's powers are listed below, they are enhanced the longer he stays awake. He does not get sleepy, but still suffers from sleep deprivation.

Powers include: (Very Luke Cage-esque)

  • Super Strength, after being up for about a day, easily pushing 25+ tons. After being up for a month if not more, he was able to go toe to toe with the Plutonian in a fist fight.
  • Durability, he hasn't actually shown to be hurt in the series much. He's flinched after being hit with a rocket a couple times, but left no damage. The only thing that has shown to actually hurt Max are punches from Plutonian.
  • Speed: Max has his fair share of bullet-timing feats. He has also kept up with Plutonian in a fight, though we're unsure if his speed is affected in the same way his strength/durability is.
  • Healing Factor: Max has a minor healing factor, he has been hurt multiple times while his powers were off, and they heal at a tremendous rate once his powers kick in.
  • Two Senses: A side effect that only starts an hour after he awakes, Max can not feel, smell or taste. He can only hear and see.

Fights Plutonian

Max's best feat, however he had been up for atleast a month as it was shown later in the story he tried fighting Plutonian after staying up for two weeks and lost, he still loses here but actually caused damage to him.

Max actually could have beaten Plutonian as he implies he wasn't trying, also it's pretty clear Max just let Tony wail on him those last few panels, great thread.

I found out about Plutonian and Max Damage around the same time. I picked up Damage's Incorruptible first, and right away I liked it. It had a little bit of everything. Then I picked up the Plutonian's Irredeemable and I was blown away. There should have been a climax that included both books with them both finally squaring off, but as with most comics.....there is a big build up and then no payoff. I never did finish the Incorruptible series, but I am sure it was probably ....meh.
