About

Gizmoduck, if you don't already know, is the highly regarded superhero of Duckburg and his deeds of derring-do have spread to her sister city of St. Canard.  He pilots a large robotic suit with a seemingly endless supply of drawers and flaps to provide him with any number of useful tools for combating the forces of darkness and occasional jay walker.  Always in the spirit of the greater good Giz will aid whomever he feels is in need (usually with little consent and with a bit of dramatic preamble). He has been on the superhero scene for a number of years and has had great success as well as almost instant admiration.  (He has his own fanclub he refers to lovingly as the "Gizmobuddies" and blindly assumes that everyone: 1) knows who he is  2) is a fan of some sort 3) wants an autograph  4) is an ally who has come to lend a hand or 5) the only other option is a villain. )  Forever an optimist he labels all heroes he encounters as friends and cherishes what he considers a particularly strong friendship with  Darkwing Duck.

 

Not in the common knowledge the mallard behind the blast shield is Fenton Crackshell. Fenton, although enjoying great success as his heroic counterpart, is typically more unsure of himself.  Playing hero has clearly taken over a huge part of his life but once the suit is off he seeks out approval from most new people a little like a lost (kicked) puppy.  His origins are a humble one: growing up with an agoraphobic mother in a run down trailer park. Though seemingly out of his depth in many (read: nearly all) things Fenton has an affinity for numbers and can do complex counting and calculations in his head at the drop of a bean.  Bean counting was his job before fate and happenstance brought him to the Gizmosuit and eventually he became Scrooge McDuck's bodyguard/underpaid accountant. Fenton can have his selfish whims but mostly he is a fount of kindness and as a result, normally a doormat.

      (Letter sent, on stationary with crossed-arrows letterhead)

      "Dear Gizmoduck,

      "Thank you again for the thoughtful gifts you sent for myself and for Gosalyn. Believe me, I was more than happy to assist in recovering you during your ordeal. Regarding that, I understand how the aftermath of such an incident can be troubling and confusing. If you ever feel the need to talk to someone about it, please know I am always available to listen.

      "If you want to focus your mind on more uplifting things, Gosalyn and I regularly visit the orphanage as well as the children's ward in the hospital. She likes to read stories to the other children and play with them, and they always enjoy the attention. If your schedule would accommodate it and you'd like to join us, please let me know. You're always welcome to spend time with us.

      (At this point the letter has been festooned with a growing number of hearts drawn in different colors of sparkly gel pen)

      "Gosalyn also sends her love and well-wishes.

      "Very sincerely,

      Quiverwing Duck"

        Somehow, once again something came in the mail for Gizmoduck from Darkwing.

        It was his Christmas present.

        A one year membership to the Jelly of the Month Club. It was the gift that keeps on giving the whole year.

        There was a letter with it.

        "Thank you for the winter gear. It has come handy in for this terrible cold weather and kept me warm.

        Merry Christmas!

        ~DW"

          A letter came to Gizmoduck surprisingly from Darkwing as indicated by the personalized stationary.

          "I know we've had our differences, but thanks for the gift basket. I put those spa certificates to good use recently. They really helped out as seeing the last time you saw me I was in pretty rough shape.

          Yes. It was a win for the greater good.

          ~DW"

            (Voicemail for Gizmoduck):

            "Normally I write letters because I'm uh. Not great at expressing feelings-related stuff when I have to talk about it." Minor pause. "This is Quiverwing, sorry, I should've said so in the first place. Anyway, I wanted to thank you again. Uh, this kid..." Hesitation. "I mean I figured I should mention it since it'll come up anyway. She was Negaduck's ward, so, uh. She's really never been given gifts like that before." Longer, awkward pause followed by a throat clearing. His voice sounded a little thick so he hurriedly concluded, "Anyway, it was pretty great. Thanks again."

              This glitter bomb would have delighted Fenton if it came to his own residence but... as it was addressed to his heroic identity it found it's way delivered to Scrooge McDuck's money bin.

              To say his employer had not been pleased would have been like saying Launchpad had a bit of trouble with landings.

              After using tweezers to remove all of the rogue sparkles from the carpet, (McDuck insisted he did it manually) he finally opened the glittering thank you note under explosion proof glass via Anaerobic Chamber. And he was touched. Truly. Let's just find that McDuck stationary and write this little sugar plum fairy a reply.

                          The good news: He wasn't dead. The bad news: He soon might be. Being sucked into a  jet engine was not something that anyone could survive.  Anyone not already encased in metal anyway.  But as the Gizmosuit took the brunt of the...

                            You know you have selective hearing when anything but a key phrase makes you come to attention. Luckily this was the exactly phrase Gosalyn had used and also it was a good thing it was open season on walls.  Gizmoduck crashed through the one...
