COMIC-BOOK CREDENTIALS: Autolycus appeared in comics based on Xena: Warrior Princess. You know, the one’s with Xena in them!
COMIC-BOOK WEAKNESSES: Despite being a fan-favourite, Autolycus has always been a bit player and so has never quite hit the big leagues himself in the world of comics.
Complete master when it comes to stealing, looks good in green, has the gift of the gab, would take candy from a baby and then would happily trade it back to the baby for something more valuable...
REASON FOR RECRUITMENT: Autolycus is known as the ‘King of Thieves’ because...well...he is the bloody king of thieves! He’s the best of the best when it comes to stealing. Yeah, back off Kevin Costner, with your pissy ‘Prince of Thieves’ title, you’re just a pretender to the throne, Autolycus is the main man when it comes to pinching stuff! He would be perfect for missions that involve a lot of deception and with his smooth moves and lightning quick reflexes he’s the best at what he does. Oh and he’s on friendly terms with Xena, so that’s always a good thing.
POTENTIAL RISK: Well he’s a thief, so he can’t really be trusted. He’d sell his own granny.
CHANCES OF SURVIVAL: Autolycus always has a back-up plan, so even if the shit did hit the fan, he’d find a way out, although this could come at the expense of the mission.
IN EVENT OF DEATH BEFORE MISSION... LIKELIHOOD OF REPLACEMENT WITH WOLVERINE: Wolverine is not a master thief. Wolverine is not the King of Thieves. Autolycus is. End of.
