Because Kansas hates me, he gave me …
Ten-Eyed Man- A man who is a victim of an unfortunate accident, and and unfortunate wardrobe. Let’s see what you can do for him.
so the ten-eyed man was a vietnam vet who after getting…well wikipedia says it best….
honorably discharged after a grenade fragment hit him between the eyes.
he later ended up blind, which he blamed batman for. Luckily someone was like”hey pal, no worries, I can connect your optical nerves to your fingers and you’ll have ten eyes” Now how among us could say no to that? naturally with his new powers and yes true believers they are his only power, he choose a life of crime. He was quite the menace, unless of course you tricked him into catching something with his eye hands or lock his hands in a box at which point he’d be a blind dude with no abilities.
Maybe I cheated, because I really went and created a ten-eyed man from the ground up. Gone are his eye fingers because lets be honest that is terrible. I do like the special forces background and the blind aspect, so I stuck more to that.
My initial idea was some kind of large helmet. I looked at a lot of bomb removal and heavy armor and ultimately went with the complete opposite direction. Instead of the fingers he has ten “eyes” that can attach to his body or freely float around him giving him a 360 degree views. When people tell him to watch his back, he literally can.
I think my love of metal gear solid took over on this and I could see the new Ten-eye sneaking behind enemy lines using his “eyes” and special forces training to take out some enemy combatants, for a price of course.
