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.
Yeah, it was a pretty special moment for me. Today was my Dad's [55th] birthday. I have a lot of family in town, so it was a special moment for me to score my first one today. A win definitely would have capped it off, but you can't have everything.
