Sweet. It looks to me like he sort of drains himself every time he uses his powers, that would sort of make it a challenge fro the game. I'm having a hard time deciding which is better, the brush or this.
I recall reading this. Supposedly, Mickey was going to use the paint and thinner that was in his own body to attack, but supposedly, it got too hard to show the effects of the overuse of thinner, so it was dropped.
I think they altered that bit. Instead of his own body providing the ammo for the paint/thinner, he ended up absorbing a good portion of the Shadow Blot- which is essential paint and thinner aside its malicious and chaotic behavior. The 'essence of Blot' was essential channeled through Yen Sid's paintbrush.... at least, that's my thought on it.
