Frog-Man (Marvel)(02 - Eugene Patilio)
Real Name: Eugene Paul Patilio
Search for 'Frog-Man (Marvel)(02 - Eugene Patilio)' on Amazon


Powers:
Frog-Man's suit contains electrical coils on the soles of its flippers which allows him to leap great distances. The boots' power source is worn on his back like a back pack. In addition, internal padding of the suit enables Frog-man to bounce off objects with little danger.

Bio:
Eugene Patillo was born in Brooklyn, New York, the son of the Vincent Patillo, the minor Daredevil super-villain Leap-Frog. After several defeats by Daredevil, Iron Man, and Spider-Man, which eventually landed him in jail, Vincent had decided to retire and go straight.

His son, Eugene, donned his father's costume as Fabulous Frog-Man in an attempt to be a crime-fighter to clear his father's name. However, his crime-fighting career became essentially a joke. His two major enemy villains are the White Rabbit, a villainess inspired by the Alice in Wonderland character, and the Walrus, a dimwitted character who essentially had the proportionate abilities of a walrus (tough skin and super-strength, though well below Spider-Man's class).

Frog-Man had a tendency to capture villains simply by dumb luck. Eugene's inability to fully pilot his automated Frog-Man costume caused him to wildly bounce around, scoring sure wins against villains by crashing into them. This questionable method of fighting super-villains accounts for his luck in dealing with the Yellow Claw and Speed Demon. It should be noted that Captain America assists in the battle against the Claw. Both villains were later contacted by the White Rabbit with proposals for an alliance against him. She later complained to Walrus that both men laughed her off as soon as they heard her codename.

He also participated, along with Spider-Kid and The Toad, in a short-lived super-team called the Misfits.

Vincent Patilio was very proud of his son, yet at the same time, very worried about him risking his life. He even prevented his son from joining the Defenders. Considering his son's luck, Vincent shouldn't have to worry too much about anything too bad.

Frog-Man was later replaced by a Skrull, whom was recruited by the government as part of the Fifty-State-Initiative program, as a member of the Kentucky based team, Action Pack.
