Hero Datafile: Ronin

Bob Conway, who runs Play Marvel Online, sent me an interesting datafile the other day: Ronin, one of the most mysterious of the heroes in the Marvel Universe. Multiple heroes have donned the costume and name, including Clint Barton, Hawkeye. Here’s what Bob had to say about the datafile he made:

Ronin was one of the more pivotal characters in the extended breakout storyline going into Japan.  I wanted to represent the first iteration of Ronin (aka Maya Lopez) so that she is a viable play option in Breakout.

    I really like how Photographic Reflexes is used here. Going online seeing a lot of varations, but this makes the most sense to me for game use. Hope to see a villian with similar abilities soon =)

    Very interesting. I am wondering if the fact that Maya is deaf should be included somewhere in her Distinctions? Sometimes they made a big deal about it (e.g. she could not understand Iron Man because she could not read his lips when he had his helmet on), and sometimes not so much. Thank you for sharing this. I really appreciate the work that goes into making these characer builds available.
