    Mutant powers:

    (DUMB LUCK) Big Trouble can uncounsciously generate a special energetic aura able to "warp" the probability lines trepassing the fabric of the reality surrounding him, to the point each minimum negative effort he does can instantly translate into the maximum positive result. The chance warping also acts as a kind of protection, since through simple acts as to run or to be steady on a place it activates itself and works as an "answer" to either any type of external attack (bullets; weapons; lightening bolts) and incidental factor of menace.
    It's not known the extent of this power, since it was never tested.

    (REFLEXES) Neuronal impulses enhance his physical reactions and allow them to be perfectly tuned with the optical perception.


    Acquired powers: state of self-confidence induced by the Six-Demon Bag serum (a miscela of wind and fire condensed).

    Wow, this confused the hell out of me for a second. I never saw Big Trouble in Little China (just wikipedia'd it now), so my initial reaction to the thread title was that some guy named Jack Burton was announced as playing "X-Man" (Nate Grey, son of Cyclops and Jean) and I was all kinds of confused. Now I get what you mean...

    also, terrible thread.

    I hope they will find the right actor, because KURT RUSSELL is too old to play this character.:daredevil

    What's the problem, 'Cyclops'? Are you trying to act as a true American bad-as*? Pick up a new character, then. Cyclops is an intelligent being... despite the portrait they give of him in the movies.

    Jack Burton is a character from a John Carpenter movie and has absolutely nothing to do with the X-Men whatsoever.

    I can't believe this thread is still open.
