I think my favorite line from the biography is this one.

Maya, Clinton, and now Gustav??? Deaf Characters in Comics
Tonight on Marvel Database, I came across a category listing of Deaf Characters including Maya Lopez (whom we know and love... or at least I do), Clinton Barton (yeah, yeah, yeah... I know) and then Gustav Krueger a.k.a. The Rattler. I was pretty excited that 1.) there is a category and 2.) there was a character whom I didn't recognize and 3.)I'm actually able to list a few more deaf and/or hard of hearing characters. I read Gustav/The Rattler's bio (which actually cracked me up)...he has a bionic tail that generates sonic vibrations used to create shock waves and/or disorient others.... but there isn't any explicit mention of him being Deaf.... Someone obviously has placed him in the category for a reason. Anyone familiar with this character?
