I have to disagree. My main rule with building Viscosity was that he couldn't overshadow the original build. He has a little more Bouncing but he doesn't have any Enhanced Strength nor does he have different settings for his Snare. Also, notice there's no Power Attack in the build? Viscosity isn't meant to be a bruiser but a defender: Defensive Attack and Improved Defense 2. He takes a defensive stance and interposes for others. Further, his bouncing cuts physical damage down. Essentially, his role is to stand in front of someone like Hemophiliac and take hits for her, all the while she can freely use her powers to weed through their opponents.
I'm willing to bet that if Candyman and Viscosity entered the ring, Candyman would come out on top each time. He'd have to throw everything into Power Attack (it shouldn't be too hard to hit Defense 14) and hope junior rolls low on his toughness save. Viscosity would take a beating but I don't think he packs the punch needed to drop his old man.

Oh my, I havn't been angsting that
much, have I? ;~)
It's not about the angstiness, actually... It's Sasuke's "my brother killed our clan and must die" and then "our village betrayed our clan and must be destroyed" mentality. Ever look at the Naruto soundtracks? Sasuke's image songs are titled "Avenger." No matter how crazy it seems or how little sense it makes to everyone else, Sasuke is 100% sure that he's the one who's acting on the side of justice and it's everyone else who's wrong.
I do like your thoughts on the characters, and I have to admit it does seem appropreate. I could see Martin more interested in science than superheroics, but with the right motivation... *looks at Fach*
Gaspar's logic is that Martin is potentially amongst the most powerful students at the school. Martin, Jack and Randy have variable powers, so while Jason's niche is he thinks and Gaspar's niche is he makes it rain and Fach's niche is she screams really loud, Martin's niche is whatever the hell the situation calls for.
That being the case, in my head, Martin would eventually cease being so humble and realize that he has the power to make a true difference in this world. I see him having a "with great power comes greater responsibility" epiphany.
Makes me wonder what event drove Lex over the bend.
I could see Lex snapping at the thought of the school saying, "Hey, Vlad! Interested in helping us mold the next generation of heroes?" It'd be like, "I know you idiots don't have a clue on how to actually teach us but HIM!?! Are you all out of your minds!?!"
