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.

      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.

              A very sparkly, pink letter came by post. The mailman even stopped a few minutes just to complain about glitter getting everywhere and how inappropriate it was and he didn't get paid to remove the glitter from other letters.

              And inside the letter was, of course, more glitter. And maybe a few party streamers that flew out when opened.

              "Dear Gizmoduck,

              Thank you, thank you, thank you!! These gifts are amazing! And I haven't even met you yet! Thank you so much for thinking of me!

              You have a really good eye for clothes; I've tried everything and they fit like a glove, and they're all so pretty! I've also enjoyed each and every one of your stories! Once again, thank you for everything!

              Would you like to have tea with me this Saturday? I'd love to get to know you more. You must be such a nice person.

              Thank you! Thank you so much!! I hope you'll have a nice day!

              Love, Gosalyn Waddlemeyer."
