Earth's Mightiest Heroes Villains: The Grey Gargoyle

SYSTEM: ICONS

Despite (or perhaps) how scanty the information in the show is, I find that I like this guy.

The Grey Gargoyle

I'd love to see him put into a Suicide Squad-like setting, because there are glimpses of a finicky, snarky character there. Throw Chemistro and Living Laser in, call them the Jobbers of Evil, and give them an apartment in New Jersey.  Wackiness ensues.

If it were a commercial for a TV show:

INTERIOR BEDROOM.
 DUVAL and WOMAN in bed; both are obviously nude but DUVAL wears glove on right hand

WOMAN
Let's talk.

DUVAL
This is an American obsession, isn't it?

WOMAN
Talking?

DUVAL
Yes. We just-- Don't you know that men always want to go to sleep now?

WOMAN
(pouts)
For me.
(pause. Duval gets ready to go to sleep)
Why do you always wear that glove?

DUVAL
Reminds me not to get stoned.

WOMAN
Kinky. I love getting stoned.

CUT TO
KITCHEN OR HALL; We see WOMAN as statue in bedroom; DUVAL is in stone form.

DUVAL

She asked for it.
