Motivation: Maxie believes he is a god, and entitled to live above mere mortals.
Delusions: Maxie believes he is Zeus. He interprets superheroes as being other figures from Greek myth; Batman is Hades.
Relationship: The only thing from his old life Maxie still cares about is his daughter Medea; he drops his "Zeus" persona only in her presence.
Maxie's the villain of my first story arc. He left Gotham, realizing he'd been trespassing in Hades' domain, and set up shop in Chicago, where he's recruited a set of C and D-list villains as his Olympians. He's become part of the Chicago Outfit, which is dominated by the super-villains.
Though he's an on-PL fighter with his thunderbolt, Maxie's not a fighter. His real benefit is as a team leader, using his Expertise: Crime Lord and Planner advantage to amplify the awesome of his followers.
The fun thing about Maxie is that he brings others into his delusions – and one of my PCs, though she doesn't know it yet, is the daughter of Hermes. Maxie, touched by Dionysus with divine madness, can see this clearly.
Maxie Zeus' Olympians – Rainbow Archer (Apollo), Moonbow (Artemis), Madman (Dionysus), Gunhawk (Ares), Cyborgirl (Athena), T.O. Morrow (Hephaestus)
