For my next character, I decided to try out another Thunderbolt member, specifically Abner Jenkins, formally known as the Beetle, and now known as MACH-VII (and the other MACH armors beforehand).  Like Songbird, MACH-VII has pretty much gone on the straight and narrow path since reforming, even leading the Thunderbolts on field missions a couple of times although lately, he has been on mission control lately as well as helping out those trying to reform like Boomerang.  As a field leader as well as focusing more on mission control, I figure he be best as a tactician, plus he's the first power armor character who has nothing to do with Stark Industries.






Formerly known as the first Beetle, Abner Jenkins was a former aircraft mechanic who decided to start a criminal career after being dissatisfied with his job.  Building a power enhancement suit with anti-gravity wings and a cybernetic control helmet, the Beetle fought against the likes of the Fantastic Four, the Avengers, and Spider-Man.  Eventually, however after being a part of the original Thunderbolts, Jenkins decided to seriously reform and now helps reforming other villains as a parole officer for super villains.  His current MACH-VII outfit is equipped with multiple weapons, wings that can fly, and super strength and durability.
