Mastermind Monday - Mr Ward, Zombie Nerdcore Rapper

Today's Mastermind Monday is also a a crossover with my N.E.R.D.Corp Rising posts. Today I present to you what happens when  a nerdcore rapper goes bad.  I feel I should give a little backstory about this one. MC Chris was the first nerdcore rapper I was exposed to. I loved him. His rhymes were geek and funny and he seemed like a cool guy. Today however I'm not a fan. The major reason for this is the way MC Chris acts at his shows. He's known for kicking people out, sometimes for legitimate reasons and others because he seems to be on a power trip. Also, reading his blog and Facebook posts, he just sort of bitches about things, but then hypocritically does the same thing. My male nerdcore loving friends feel the same way (for the most part). However, it seems that the ladies still dig Chris, which was the inspiration for the Nrrrd Grrrl I Don't Deserve You power.
Also, I had a question, would anybody be interested in seeing new Mutants and Masterminds characters (not just supernatural ones) every Monday? Everyone else has their own alliterative regular blog posts, so I think Masterminds Monday would be a good one for me, since I like statting up M&M characters.

Background:When Frontalot sent out the call for help to his fellow nerdcore artists, the volatile rapper known as MC Chris was offended. Despite the fact that most of his fans are members of the nerdcore scene, he himself wasn’t. Still he decided to help. Having now powers of his own, Chris began to do occult research. However, he was constantly overshadowed by occult skills of Beefy and Shaffer the Former Dark Lord.  Angered by this Chris delved into things man was not meant to know. The end result of this research had transformed MC Chris into an intelligent flesh-eating ghoul. Strangely it also gave him hypnotic powers over women. Chris was able to maintain his normal appearance as long as he fed regularly. It is for this reason that he started kicking people out of his shows regularly. He would cause a scene, get someone thrown out, and then when his people would “deal” with the person, he would kidnap and devour them. Some of his longtime fans and friends (including members of N.E.R.D.Corps) have noticed a change in Chris however and have turned their backs on him. They mockingly refer to him as Mr. Ward (a name that infuriates him).

  1. Zombie MC Chris! Or something from "Gorillaz: The RPG".

    Either way, very cool.
