Melvin Potter was one of the first enemies that Daredevil fought at the start of his super-hero career. Melvin was a costume designer who decided to become a criminal.
He was obsessed with Gladiators, so he made and donned the costume and persona of a Gladiator. He has fought Daredevil and Iron Man, and has teamed-up with other villains and groups such as Maggia.
Made from ML Hasbro Doc Samson, sculpt the details and use a steel blades as a weapon then paint him with acrylic paint (brush and airbrush).

when I was a kid growing up on marvel mags, I always wondered why people like melvin here and the original hobby gobby, a costume designer and a fashion designer, couldn't come up with better outfits for their criminal careers, lol anyway, he came out great, very clean in my estimation, great work!!
