The Wild

(Click image to enlarge)

The Wild is a vision of raw power coupled with brilliant intellect.  He is an intellectual and avid reader, taken from the fact that the Minneapolis-St. Paul area is one of the most highly literate in the Country. At one moment, he is a deadly serious problem solver, the next an irreverent adventurer.

The Wild isn't so much a superhero as he is a force of nature. He only has super abilities when he is in his "Wild" form although his incredible intelligence is nearly a super power on its own.  Knowing his volatile side can be dangerously unpredictable; the Wild chains himself up at night so as not to cause any unnecessary mayhem.The other Guardians respect him and his wild-side but they also know its' destructive potential. As a nod to Minnesota's mining history, the Wild can also use his razor sharp claws to tunnel through the earth's crust allowing him to sneak up on enemy fortresses.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
