Heavy Hitter Who needs weapons, anyway?

1
You possess superhuman unarmed combat ability.
Used by Hank Walker, Created by LasinnVargr.

Hank's body is... larger, specially his hands. While his claws are certainly menacing, he prefers to stick to punches. Thanks to his non-human form, his unarmed attacks have nothing to envy from material weapons, and might even prove more versatile and useful than such.

Normally, Hank tries to keep himself to punching, kicking and grappling. However, if he decides to resort to lethal methods, he may try to rend with his claws or maul with his teeth.
