Part of my XVerse Universe-2
Peter Todd is the youngest of two brothers, both of whom were sports stars and prom kings. As such, he had no illusions as to who his parents' least favorite child was. However, Peter had one advantage his brothers did not; he knew how people worked. At 16 he started his long career as a con man pulling small jobs against his fellow students. Then after he graduated, he honed his skills and became one of the world's greatest con artists. But no matter how successful he became, his family still saw him as the runt of the family. So he commissioned the Toy Maker to build him a massive suit of armor, and spent everything he had to pay for it. Now he is the Mammoth, the greatest demolition man a heist could ask for. A criminal with a code of honor, Mammoth will not kill a civilian, law enforcement officer, or unready enemy. And when a threat arises that affects the whole world, Peter has even found himself on the side of good.
-Mammoth suit: The Mammoth suit is a heavily armored mechanical suit which aside from being bulletproof, increases Peter's strength and speed nearly a hundred fold. Furthermore it has an assault mode that transforms the suit into a quadrupedal tank. In this mode the trunk acts as a controllable limb to grab things, and the tusks can be used to carry things as well as a function as a battering ram. Lastly the ears work as a retractable blast shield to protect the suits one weakness, the visor. The inside of the suit is padded to the point that even Peter can barely move inside of it, this is to protect him from any possible impact he may endure while inside, and as an added precaution, he wears a helmet and harness on the inside as well.
One of my favorite villain designs ever is Marvel's Rhino. So I wanted to use it in someway for a character...But as I worked through the list of large land mammals, they were literally all taken...seriously, Elephant, Rhino, Hippo, Bear, everything. So I altered the design a bit to more reflect the Ultimate version of the Rhino and the criminally underused Paul Giamatti version. I then went with a mammoth, as despite the name being taken, there is no humanoid mammoth character. Then came the size issue, as with all mech suits in comics the size doesn't work with human proportion. I found the solution while watching Game of Thrones this week; Peter Dinklage. Not only did it fix the size problem, but it added a layer to his backstory. For the man in the suit I took elements from Star Lord (beginning of Guardians Vol 1), Tyrion Lannister, Captain Cold (CW version), Danny Ocean (the Ocean's trilogy), and the Brothers Bloom (one of my favorite movies). The result is a calm, calulating, and charming criminal with a code of honor and a willingness to side with the law should the need arise.
