adverse<<>>averse

I just found this in a brochure advertising recently released movies: ”...it’s up to his scrawny, risk-adverse brother to save him, and his planet.” This one is already in the eggcorn list (in the “adverse” for “averse” direction), but I thought I’d resurrect the discussion for anyone who hasn’t seen it and may be interested. “Adverse” for “averse” is discussed at:

And “averse” for “adverse” is at:
