Mr. Fantastic:
Decker, better than average, but not by much. Has a tendency to
overestimate his abilities and gets in over his head. His irreverent
attitude has gotten him into trouble on more than one occasion.
[To hear a friend describe it, Doom's punching bag.]

build the deck he later stole). (Ed Matuskey)

Howe, Lincoln:
Another bluesuit who made MONICA. Her personality is
from one of his (brainmaps?)
