Wally Cricket. A down-on-his-luck inventor with a creepy attraction to bugs, Wally was inspired to become a hero by the legendary Brawler and his team. Seeing the Brawler and Reverend Brimstone rampage through the Museum of Natural History in the city, Wally decided, Hey, I Could Do That, and built the B.B.B.B. [Battle Bug Bionic Battlesuit] to help him out, basing it on his namesake insect, the humble cricket. As time went by, Wally got more proficient in making insect-armor attachments for his B-4, and soon the beetle, arachnid, and fly all had a place in his arsenal of awesome modules. He even attracted some cohorts, the three Battle Bug Battalion Boys, a group of guys in toned-down versions of each of his non-cricket armors [Beetle, Arachnid, and Fly] who hang out with him and help him out. They're all a bunch of yutzes, but they mean well and they don't get in the Brawler's way, so who cares?
You're a piss-poor meleer. Seriously, you'll miss nearly every shot you take as the B.B.B.B., and that's the way it should be. You're a semi-incompetent bug-loving whackadoo in bug-themed power-armor, not a well-trained fighter or even a wild swing-style hero like the Brawler. You won't hit much. Your Cricket Armor's probably your best bet for combat; however, you have a Battle Bug Battlesuit for every eventuality.
Wally's a b-grade hero with an a-grade power armor at d-list thematics. With a little time and improvement he could be a great superhero, but right now, he's second to the street-hunting Brawler and his gang. Still, he and the Battle Bug Battalion have a lot of potential and a lot of variablity. But Wally's a little crazy, and definitely great comic relief.
Edit: Cleaned up his build, spent 13 (!!!) extra points lying around, channeled them into his "non-Battle Bug" stuff.
Just for reference: There's ONE point left over on the original Battle Bug Bionic Battlesuit. Use it for an Alternate Power: Devices for his super-nifty fifth bug-themed armor.
2/17: Added the Battle Bug Aerial Arson Assault Armor. Uses the same stats as the Battle Bug Aerial Attack Armor.
