Prodigy (Marvel)(03 - Ritchie Gilmore)
Real Name: Ritchie Gilmore
Search for 'Prodigy (Marvel)(03 - Ritchie Gilmore)' on Amazon

Superhuman strength, leaping, enhanced durability, gliding. All abilities from costume.

Ritchie Gilmore is a star wrestler in E.S.U. and it's either his way or no way. He won't let anyone get in the way of his ambitions and goals. His gleaming gold costume might not be enough for him to become the super hero he wants to be. He was trained by the Black Marvel who taught him the ways of the super hero.

Peter Parker wore this costume in Sensational Spider-Man (1976) issue #256-258. Spider-Man wore this costume to escape the bounty on his head for beating up Norman Osborn while he cleared his "good" name. A part of Peters face was exposed so Mary Jane added some make up and a new nose and the costume also had fake muscles. The hero needed a name so they used the word meaning ''A person with exceptional talents or powers''. Ritchie received a copy of this costume from the Black Marvel.
