The most powerful comic book hero of all-time in DC's Spectre.

from wiki


The Spectre was intended to appear in a Superman: The Animated Series (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superman:_The_Animated_Series) Christmas special, but the episode was never produced. [1] (http://forums.toonzone.net/showthread.php?t=161008&highlight=Spectre)
The 2001 Green Arrow (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_Arrow) story "Quiver" (written by Kevin Smith (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_Smith)) revealed that the Spectre (as the Hal Jordan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hal_Jordan) incarnation) is aware of the Crisis on Infinite Earths. He is one of the few DC Universe characters with this knowledge.
Despite similar names, Jim Corrigan has nothing to do with Chris Ware's graphic novel Jimmy Corrigan, the Smartest Kid on Earth (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jimmy_Corrigan%2C_the_Smartest_Kid_on_Earth).
Apparently, the Spectre and the Living Tribunal (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Living_Tribunal) from Marvel worked together to create the Big Bang that brought the current universe into being
Day of Vengeance

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/0/0e/Dov3.jpg/150px-Dov3.jpg (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Dov3.jpg) http://en.wikipedia.org/skins-1.5/common/images/magnify-clip.png (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Dov3.jpg)
Promotional art for Day of Vengeance #3 (August 2005) featuring the Spectre fighting Captain Marvel. Art by Walt Simonson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walt_Simonson).


As covered in one of the lead-ins to Infinite Crisis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infinite_Crisis), Day of Vengeance (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Day_of_Vengeance), Jean Loring (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean_Loring) was transformed into the new Eclipso. She went after the Spectre, who was on a vengeance rampage. Not only was he killing murderers, he was also killing people for minor crimes, such as petty theft. She seduced the Spectre, who was unstable due to the loss of his host, into removing all magic in the DC Universe. Eclipso explained to the Spectre that all things that follow the rules of the physical universe follow God's law. Anything that breaks those rules, breaks God's law and is therefore evil. Subsequently, as magic breaks the rules of the physical universe, it is an originating source of tremendous evil (this line of logic made sense to the unstable Spectre).
Therefore, the Spectre went on a rampage, destroying magical constructs, institutions that taught magic, and magical dimensions. In one such dimension, his acts included the mass murder of over 700 battle hardened magicians. His actions caused havoc to some of the more powerful magic-based characters

UniverseMarvel Universe (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Marvel_Universe) Real NameLucas Bishop AliasesNone IdentityNo dual identity; the general public is unaware that Bishop comes from the future of an alternate timeline OccupationAdventurer, police officer, former Commander in the Xavier Security Enforcers (X.S.E.)

http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/b/bc/Inf_physical.gif (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:Inf_physical.gif) Height6'6" Weight275 lbs. EyesBrown, red when using powers HairBlack http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/6/62/Inf_powers.gif (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:Inf_powers.gif) Powers Bishop is a mutant with the power to absorb energy, either ambient energy or that directed towards him, and to project that energy from his body in the form of concussive blasts. Bishop can also store absorbed energy within his personal reserves, whereupon the energy increases his strength and recuperative abilities, as well as affording him a measure of invulnerability. Also, he instinctively knows his location at all times. Abilities Bishop is a trained police officer, skilled in the homicide branch. Bishop has also had many years of armed and unarmed combat training, and is a superb marksman with firearms. Weapons
ParaphernaliaLucas Bishop was born in the 21st Century A.D. of an alternate future timeline in which the mutant-hunting robot Sentinels had taken control of North America. In this timeline, Professor Charles Xavier and most of the members of the mutant team he founded, the X-Men, had been killed. Surviving mutants were hunted down and either killed or imprisoned within relocation camps. Bishop's parents escaped to America shortly before the island nation of Australia was destroyed in a tactical nuclear strike. They were soon captured and interred in a mutant relocation camp in Sheep's Head Bay, Brooklyn, New York. There, Bishop and his sister Shard were both born and, like other mutants, they were branded with "M" tattoos over their right eyes for identification.
Eventually, humans and mutants joined forces and overthrew the Sentinels in what became known as the Summers Rebellion. However, humans still resisted coexistence with mutants, and radical terrorist groups of mutants, such as the Exhumes, made war on humans. One of the veterans of the Summers Rebellion, a mutant named Hecat'e, stated that it was unacceptable for humans to hunt down criminal mutants, believing mutants should police themselves. Thus Hecat'e and other mutant veterans formed the Xavier Security Enforcers, named after Charles Xavier in honor of his dream of peaceful coexistence between mutants and humans.
After the death of their parents, Bishop and Shard lived with their grandmother, who was herself a mutant. She told them stories about the heroism of the X-Men and instructed them to follow Xavier's dream of peace between mutants and the rest of humanity. One day, when Bishop and Shard were both still children, two X.S.E. members were pursuing Virago, a member of the Exhumes. Virago was about to murder Bishop when one X.S.E. member shot her dead. Until then, Bishop had regarded the X.S.E. as his enemies and the Exhumes as heroes, but from then on he wanted to join the X.S.E.
Later, Bishop and Shard were attacked by criminal mutants. Bishop attempted to save his sister from them, but it was two members of the X.S.E. who stopped the criminals. Impressed by Bishop, the X.S.E. members offered Bishop a position in the organization. Bishop accepted on the condition that Shard be accepted in the X.S.E. as well. Thus Bishop and Shard became cadets at the X.S.E. Academy under Hecat'e's supervision. Among the other members of their class was a mutant named Trevor Fitzroy.
Bishop and Shard eventually graduated from the Academy and became officers of the X.S.E. Shard, however, became Bishop's commanding officer. Bishop contented himself with a lower rank so that he could work the streets as a homicide policeman alongside his friends and fellow X.S.E. officers, Malcolm and Randall.
Fitzroy eventually turned criminal and was imprisoned, but escaped with other mutant criminals through a portal to the X-Men's own time. Bishop, Malcolm, and Randall followed, even though they were aware they had no means to return to their own time. Stranded in the past, the trio tracked their mark into the midst of a fray between the X-Men and the Sentinels. Confronted with the legends of his youth, Bishop's first reaction was one of disbelief. Ultimately, Bishop's troops were slain by Fitzroy's forces during the deadly firefight. Only through the X-Men's intervention did the badly injured Bishop survive.
Finally coming to terms with his time-tossed situation, Bishop was honored when Professor X invited him to join the team whose members he had idolized since childhood. Bishop found new purpose with the X-Men, fighting alongside the mutant adventurers to avert the genetic war that for him was history. Initially uneasy with Bishop's presence, the X-Men soon came to realize he was a devoted disciple of Xavier's philosophy, albeit an oft-times over-zealous one.
During his time with the X-Men, Bishop proved instrumental in returning the timeline to normal after it was twisted by Legion, the mutant son of Professor X, who had traveled into the past to kill Magneto but had inadvertently killed his father instead. Bishop also saved the lives of his teammates from the malevolent psionic entity known as Onslaught. In his own time, Bishop had learned of a traitor in the ranks of the X-Men who would ultimately cause their death. For a time he believed it to be Gambit, but after it was revealed that the traitor was none other than Professor X himself, albeit as Onslaught, Bishop was able to intervene and stop Onslaught from killing the X-Men by absorbing the energies of a massive psychic blast.
After the X-Men were separated whilst returning to Earth following a mission in deep space, Bishop was severely injured. He was cared for by the alien Deathbird, who wished to use Bishop in an attempt to claim the throne of the intergalactic Shi'ar Empire from her sister, Lilandra. After a few interstellar adventures, including one to an alternate Earth ruled by the Shi'ar, Bishop managed to return to Earth and the X-Men.
Plagued by reoccurring nightmares of Fitzroy, Bishop resigned from the X-Men to dedicate himself once more to the pursuit of his arch-nemesis. Drawn by the villain into another possible apocalyptic future, Bishop learned that his failure to act against Fitzroy had resulted in the criminal taking over this future world, wherein he had rechristened himself as the all-powerful Chronomancer. Fitzroy planned to ascend to godhood by becoming one with the temporal energies that control all time. Aided by a young boy named Michael who had been drawn to the future with him, Bishop gathered a small group of mutants and focused them on a single goal: quashing Fitzroy's mad plan.
During the epic battle that followed a trek across the strange new world, Bishop defeated Fitzroy moments before he could complete his mad quest. However, the price of victory was high: Bishop's sister, Shard, sacrificed her life so that her brother could put an end to Fitzroy. Mere moments after the war had been won, Filled with chronal energy, Bishop was ripped back through time. Young Michael remained in the future, seemingly with no hope of returning home.
Spiraling through time, Bishop emerged back in the present as he crashed into a Shi'ar space station in deep space. As it happened, Professor Xavier and his team of mutant Skrull students named Cadre K were searching the same station for Deathbird, the Shi'ar criminal who was apparently Bishop's chronal anchor in the present day. A pan-galactic committee had transformed Earth into an intergalactic prison planet, and Deathbird held a key to penetrate the energy barrier that surrounded Earth. Bishop almost killed Deathbird before she opened an airlock and blew herself into the vacuum of space unprotected. After forming a plan with Professor X, Bishop allowed himself to be captured by the galactic committee and sent to Earth where he was quickly reunited with the X-Men. Then, alongside members of the Avengers, the X-Men helped liberate Earth.
http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/thumb/8/8e/Bishop2.jpg/400px-Bishop2.jpg (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:Bishop2.jpg)
Soon after, Bishop and five other X-Men formed a splinter group of X-Men, cutting all ties with the rest of the team whilst searching for the Diaries of the late blind mutant seer named Destiny. The team later took on the responsibility of acting as a mutant peacekeeping force, setting them on the path to become the X.S.E. of Bishop's own time. After defeating the mutant predator known as Elias Bogan, the X-Treme X-Men returned to Westchester to help rebuild the mansion following an attack by Magneto. With Professor X having left for Genosha, the X-Men were forced to restructure and the X-Treme team disbanded to rejoin their comrades.
Later, when crime in the borough of New York known as Mutant Town proved more than the N.Y.P.D. could handle, Bishop was called in to help police the region, referred to as District X.

The "Maximum Carnage" series was in tact, Venom and Spider-Man teamed up making him good because they both had the same cause.

U could say the same about The Punisher, he was Spider-Man and Daredevil's arch nemesis but he was still classified as a hero

those were serious !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

EyesGray HairBlack, white at temples http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/6/62/Inf_powers.gif (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:Inf_powers.gif) Powers Doctor Strange is one of the most powerful sorcerers in existence. Like most sorcerers, he draws his power from three primary sources: the invocation of powerful mystic entities or objects, the manipulation of the universe's ambient magical energy, and his own psychic resources. Strange's magical repertoire includes energy projection and manipulation, matter transformation, animation of inanimate objects, teleportation, illusion-casting, mesmerism, thought projection, astral projection, dimensional travel, time travel and mental possession, to name a few. The full range of his abilities is unknown. Doctor Strange's powers are sometimes less effective against strictly science-based opponents, although he can overcome this limitation with effort. Abilities Doctor Strange is a skilled athlete and martial artist with substantial medical and magical knowledge. Though an expert surgeon, Strange's nerve-damaged hands prevent him from performing surgery except when supplemented by magic. Weapons None Paraphernalia Doctor Strange wears the Eye of Agamotto, an amulet which can radiate light, pierce illusions, probe minds, open extradimensional portals, and perform other feats. He has a Cloak of Levitation which enables him to fly without expending personal magical energy. He possesses several other mystic artifacts, including the Orb of Agamotto, which he can use to observe events virtually anywhere in the multiverse. He has a library of mystic tomes, some of which, such as the Book of the Vishanti and the Darkhold, can serve as power sources or weapons in their own right.

Born in 1930, Stephen Strange was the eldest child of Eugene and Beverly Strange, then vacationing in Philadelphia. Two years later, Stephen's sister Donna was born at the family's Nebraska farm. At age eight, Strange was beset by demons controlled by apprentice sorcerer Karl Mordo (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Baron_Mordo), but was rescued by Mordo's mentor, the Ancient One (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Ancient_One), a millennia-old sorcerer who protected the Earth dimension as its Sorcerer Supreme, a role Strange was destined to inherit. At age eleven, a year or two after his brother Victor's birth, Strange aided an injured Donna, the experience inspiring him to pursue a medical career. After high school, Strange entered pre-med at a New York college. Later, home on vacation for his nineteenth birthday, Strange went swimming with Donna, who suffered a cramp and drowned. Finding her body after a desperate search, Strange felt a sense of personal failure that eroded his medical idealism. After earning his medical degree in record time, he entered a five-year residency at New York Hospital, where his rapid success made him arrogant. When his mother Beverly died near the end of his residency, a bereaved Strange grew distant from his work. His talent was unaffected, though, and he became a wealthy, celebrated neurosurgeon before he turned thirty. His egotism made him cold and callous, interested only in high fees. He saved the life of injured United Nations translator, Madeleine Revell; following a romance and proposal, she left him due to his increasingly materialist nature. Two years after Beverly's death, her husband Eugene fell ill; unable to face another family death, Stephen refused to visit his deathbed. A few days later, an outraged Victor berated Stephen for his apparent lack of grief, then rushed from Strange's apartment into the path of an oncoming car. Blaming himself, Strange placed Victor's body in cold storage, half-hoping that future breakthroughs could revive him.
Circa 1963, Strange was in a car accident that severely damaged the nerves in his hands, ending his surgical career. Too vain to accept positions as a consultant or assistant, Strange sought a cure and pursued every available treatment, legitimate or not, soon depleting his fortune; in months he was reduced to a derelict, performing shady medical procedures that barely paid his bar tabs. After hearing rumors of the mystical Ancient One, a desperate Strange pawned his last possessions for a ticket to the East and found the Ancient One's Tibetan palace. At first annoyed when the Ancient One refused to cure him, Strange was later astonished to see the sorcerer attacked by mystic forces. Upon learning that the Ancient One was Earth's magical defender and that the attack on him came from his pupil Mordo, Strange tried to warn him, but Mordo mystically prevented Strange from doing so. For the sake of the Ancient One and the world, Strange acted unselfishly for the first time in years, vowing to learn magic himself so he could counter Mordo and his ilk. He offered himself as a disciple to the Ancient One, who accepted, having known of Mordo's treachery all along. The Ancient One spent years instructing Strange in the art of sorcery, teaching him how to tap the innate mystic powers of both himself and the world around him, as well as how to invoke the power of awesome entities, or Principalities, who resided in their own realms, most notably the three benign beings known as the Vishanti. A few years after Strange's arrival, Mordo left to seek greater power, and would often clash with Strange in the future. Strange's guilt over his earlier mistakes weighed heavily upon him over the years, and not all of his early recollections can be trusted.
http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/0/0c/DrStrangeInline.jpg (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:DrStrangeInline.jpg)
During his years of study and early activity, Strange befriended many sorcerers around the world, including Lord Julian Phyffe and Sir Clive Bentley of Great Britain; Cardinal Alfeo Spinosa and Count Carezzi of Italy; Omar Karindu, Rama Kaliph, and Turhan Barim of the Middle East; Wai Chee Yee and Sen-Yu of Asia; and Aleister Kane, Kenneth Ward, and Frank Brukner of America. Other immortal adventurers, such as Immortalis and Terror, Inc., regarded his ascent with skepticism. Strange also found allies among more earthly heroes, aiding the adventurer Black Fox in at least two adventures. No later than the 1970s, Strange returned to America, becoming a mystic consultant in New York's Greenwich Village. He was joined by Wong, the descendant of a line that had served the Ancient One for centuries, who became his servant and friend. Strange's earliest foes included the demonic Bottle Imp; a nightmarish manifestation of the entity KhLTg; and the demon Nightmare, who preyed upon humanity's dreams and became one of Strange's bitterest enemies. Developing a mysterious reputation like the Ancient One before him, Strange became an occasional consultant to local and even federal authorities. While the Fantastic Four (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Fantastic_Four)‘s debut heralded an upsurge of superhuman activity in recent years, Strange remained aloof from New York’s many super heroes at first. The powerful Asgardian god Loki (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Loki) later tricked Strange into covertly attacking Loki's heroic foster brother, Thor (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Thor_%28Thor_Odinson%29); however, Strange soon pierced the deception and united with Thor to drive off Loki. Soon afterward, a clash with Mordo led Strange to encounter the young Spider-Man (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Spider-Man_%28Peter_Parker%29), who helped Strange rescue several people from a mystic dimension and convinced him to remove their memory of the traumatic experience, even though this caused them to forget Spider-Man's heroism as well. Impressed by Spider-Man's bravery and altruism, Strange came to regard him as a friend, and the two unlikely allies have teamed up many times over the years.
Strange soon faced the Dreaded Dormammu (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Dormammu), ruler of the Dark Dimension (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Dark_Dimension&action=edit) and one of the Ancient One's oldest foes. Sensing the Ancient One's declining power, Dormammu plotted anew to invade the Earth dimension and challenged Strange to a mystic duel in the Dark Dimension. While there, Strange was approached by Clea (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Clea), a novice mystic and daughter of Dormammu's sister Umar, although few knew her parentage at the time. Clea sought to prevent the duel, fearful that her home dimension would be devastated by the Mindless Ones if its ruler fell, but Strange would not yield. Although Dormammu vastly out powered Strange, their duel drained his energies enough to weaken the barrier which contained the Mindless Ones. Strange, unwilling to endanger the Dark Dimension's denizens, lent Dormammu enough power to restore the barrier. Enraged by his own weakness, Dormammu felt honor-bound to spare Strange, who bargained with him to spare both the Earth dimension and Clea, whom he found very attractive; however, Dormammu swore vengeance and became one of Strange's most implacable enemies.
Shortly after this, Strange openly joined several super heroes in battling the powerful mutate Sundown. He became a special consultant to prominent super-teams like the Fantastic Four, the X-Men (http://www.marvel.com/universe/X-Men) and the Avengers (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Avengers). Months after attending the wedding of Reed (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Mister_Fantastic) and Sue Richards (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Invisible_Woman), Strange was reunited with Clea, who returned his love and came to live with him in New York. Later, following an extradimensional ordeal, he was forced to change his appearance in order to cross the barrier to Earth; he altered his traditional attire and added a full-face mask, perhaps in imitation of his super-hero allies. Upon his return, Strange retained this appearance to preserve his anonymity but later carelessly revealed his real name to a crowd while fighting Nightmare (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Nightmare). Eternity (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Eternity), the universal embodiment whom Strange was aiding at the time, altered all documents and memories on Earth, changing the name of “Stephen Strange” to “Stephen Sanders” to allow Strange a private persona once more.
http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/6/6a/DrStrangeInline3.jpg (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:DrStrangeInline3.jpg)
Strange next faced the Undying Ones, a vastly powerful demon race led by the Nameless One, who had once dominated Earth. During these struggles, Strange manipulated Namor the Sub-Mariner (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Sub-Mariner) and the monstrous Hulk (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Hulk_%28Bruce_Banner%29) into aiding him. With the Undying Ones defeated, Strange seemingly believed that the Earth dimension was sealed from mystic incursion, and, troubled by his arrogant exploitation of Namor and Hulk, he abandoned his mystic duties and became a medical consultant, performing the selfless duties he had once thought beneath him. Weeks later, Strange returned to action when Baron Mordo tried to kill him. Aided by the Ancient One, Strange reclaimed his sorcerer role and defeated Mordo, while the Ancient One, for reasons of his own, reversed Eternity's spell, restoring the name "Stephen Strange" to the world's records and memories. When the Nameless One returned shortly thereafter, Strange resumed his non-masked attire and again recruited Namor and the Hulk to fight alongside him. The three heroes later fought other threats and were soon joined by the alien Silver Surfer (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Silver_Surfer). This quartet formed the core of the heroic Defenders (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Defenders) team, becoming friends despite their differences.
Strange soon clashed with powerful demon servants of Shuma-Gorath, a vast extradimensional entity who had menaced Earth thousands of years ago and now sought to return via the mind of the Ancient One himself. At his mentor's prompting, Strange slew the Ancient One, preventing Shuma-Gorath's passage. The Ancient One's physical death made him one with Eternity, and Strange became Sorcerer Supreme, guardian of the entire universe. Heavily burdened by his new responsibilities and seeking the solace of family, Strange tried and failed to revive his brother Victor using spells from the Book of the Vishanti, not realizing he was reading the Vampiric Verses, imbuing Victor with the potential for resurrection as a vampire.
Strange continued to share adventures with the Defenders, and over the months the informal team's ranks expanded to include the Asgardian Valkyrie, the winged millionaire Nighthawk (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Nighthawk_%28Kyle_Richmond%29), the happy-go-lucky Hellcat (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Hellcat), and others. Strange's time with the team forced him to face more non-mystical foes, such as the mutant Magneto (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Magneto_%28Magnus%29), the alien Nebulon (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Nebulon&action=edit), the subversive Sons of the Serpent (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Sons_of_the_Serpent&action=edit) and the bizarre masterminds called the Headmen (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Headmen&action=edit). Strange's sanctuary often served as Defenders headquarters, and their camaraderie, plus the love of Clea, gave Strange a welcome change from his customary solitude.
Manipulated by the trans-temporal sorcerers called the Creators, the Ancient One's spirit offered Strange a chance to become one with the universe, but Strange refused and was stripped of the title and power of Sorcerer Supreme. Shortly afterward, Strange battled the Creators, thwarting their reality-reshaping plans by defeating their ally, the cosmic In-Betweener (http://www.marvel.com/universe/In-Betweener). With their deception revealed, the Ancient One restored Strange's former status. Although Strange's adventure took mere days from his perspective, weeks apparently passed on Earth; who, if anyone, held the post of Sorcerer Supreme during these weeks is unrevealed.
Months later, Strange and the three other senior Defenders parted ways after a cosmic hoax by the mysterious alien Tribunals convinced them their alliance was destined to cause cosmic tragedy. Next allied with a band of vampire hunters against Dracula, Strange cast the Montesi Formula (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Montesi_Formula&action=edit) spell taken from the ancient magic tome the Darkhold (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Darkhold&action=edit). This spell destroyed virtually all vampires within the Earth dimension; however, unknown to Strange, the spell's energy washed over the forgotten Victor Strange, where its power combined unpredictably with Strange's earlier spell.
Meanwhile, Clea had returned to the Dark Dimension to lead the rebellion against its current ruler, Umar (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Umar&action=edit), whom she soon learned was her mother. Strange helped Clea ascend to her home universe's throne, but, bound by their respective responsibilities, the couple regretfully separated. Strange next found those very responsibilities challenged by the evil extraterrestrial Urthona, who coveted the role of Sorcerer Supreme. A desperate Strange destroyed his own collection of mystic artifacts and tomes to deny Urthona their power; unknown to Strange, his collection was in fact rescued by Agamotto, one of three Principalities who formed the Vishanti.
With the removal of Strange's artifacts, various occult threats that had been repelled by their power over the millennia broke free, leaving Strange to face them with reduced power. Accompanied by the extradimensional novice mystic Rintrah, Strange encountered the Ancient One's old rival Kaluu, who offered to teach him life-draining black magic as a defense against the returning forces; Strange reluctantly accepted. Strange's black magic ventures culminated in a rematch with Shuma-Gorath, which ended with the demon seemingly destroyed and Strange little better-off, but Strange eventually recovered and returned home. Shortly thereafter, he visited the Dark Dimension and married Clea, who came to live with him on Earth, ruling her kingdom from afar. Strange took Rintrah as his new apprentice, and a surreal encounter with Agamotto restored his seemingly lost artifacts and tomes.
Strange faced a far more unexpected part of his past when his brother Victor revived as the first of a new breed of vampire. Victor fell under the sway of sorceress Marie LaVeau, who sought to blackmail Strange into reciting the Vampiric Verses, nullifying the effects of the Montesi Formula. Strange instead banished the Vampiric Verses page from the Earth dimension, but Marie LaVeau used Victor as a template to duplicate the spell, making it possible for long-destroyed vampires to reappear. Unable to undo this threat, Strange and Clea were next drawn into a war between Dormammu and Umar for rule of the Dark Dimension; ultimately Umar reclaimed the throne, leaving Clea in exile with Strange. Strange next allied himself with several super heroes against the mad Titan Thanos, who used the near-omnipotent Infinity Gauntlet to eradicate half of the universe's population before Earth's heroes defeated him and reversed the effect.
As Clea sought allies to regain the Dark Dimension, Strange formed alliances of his own by manipulating the formation of the Midnight Sons (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Midnight_Sons), a loose-knit group of supernatural heroes, including those who had helped him invoke the Montesi Formula, destined to confront ancient evils. During Clea's absence, he briefly tutored the young sorcerer Augustyne Phyffe, who ultimately chose to abandon sorcery. After sharing leadership of Earth's heroes against the Magus (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Magus_%28Adam_Warlock%29) during the Infinity War (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Infinity_War), Strange teamed with Namor, the Hulk, and the Silver Surfer to battle Shanzar, the invading Sorcerer Supreme of another dimension (by now, Strange had long since discovered the Tribunals' hoax and knew it was safe for the senior Defenders to reunite).
Meanwhile, the Principalities of various mystic realms faced the War of the Seven Spheres, a cataclysmic clash with opposing entities that was expected to last five thousand years. Several of them, including the Vishanti, attempted to enlist allies such as Strange, but Strange refused to abandon his earthly duties and, being no match for the godlike Principalities, renounced the use of their mystic energies. Thus stripped of much of his power, Strange was ill-prepared to face a vastly enhanced Dormammu, who had manipulated Clea's deposal of Umar so that he could again rule the Dark Dimension. Strange recruited the Hulk, the Silver Surfer, and the Ghost Rider (Dan Ketch) (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Ghost_Rider_%28Dan_Ketch%29&action=edit) to aid him in repelling Dormammu, who retained control of the Dark Dimension despite Strange's victory, and Clea remained there to lead the new resistance. Strange sought out Immortalis in hopes of curing Victor, but was refused due to the temporary nature of the cure. Shortly afterward, Rintrah was seemingly slain destroying a dangerous talisman, and Strange, after placing Rintrah's body in stasis pending potential revival, took as a new apprentice Kyllian Kell, a youth empowered by Celtic gods. Strange also began periodically gathering informal teams of heroes as "Secret Defenders" to face threats he could not handle alone.
http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/4/47/DrStrangeInline2.jpg (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:DrStrangeInline2.jpg)
Strange was among the heroes mesmerized by the Goddess, who sought to remake the universe through her Infinity Crusade (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Infinity_Crusade&action=edit). While Strange's physical form served the Goddess, his astral form investigated the actions of Victor Strange, now the costumed hero Khiron, who had become too deadly a vigilante for Strange's liking. Realizing how violent he had become, Khiron took his own life, but Strange had little time to mourn; shortly after breaking free of the Goddess, Strange again faced Urthona, who had enlisted in the War of the Seven Spheres and had thus gained as much power as Strange had lost. Surviving this encounter, Strange tried to rescue Kyllian from a mystic dimension but left him behind when called to join the Midnight Sons against the ancient sorceress Lilith; weeks later, Kyllian returned in the enhanced form of Wildpride, later fighting both Strange and the Midnight Sons. Joining an international coalition of heroes in opposing the techno-magical threat of Mys-Tech's Un-Earth, Strange was one of six beings who stabilized the resulting unraveled reality. Strange's life was further complicated by Salome, a winged member of the mysterious Blood race and allegedly the first Earth-born Sorcerer Supreme over 20,000 years ago. With Strange's power still low, Salome easily reclaimed her title; however, she cared little for humanity and began gathering followers to help her rule the Earth. Desperate for more power, Strange secluded himself in a pocket dimension, from which he dispatched two magical constructs based upon himself: Vincent Stevens, who built a fortune with which to develop so-called technomagick, and a being called Strange, who fought alongside the Midnight Sons and gathered objects of mystic power throughout the world. Unable to spare the energy to lead the Secret Defenders, Dr. Strange abruptly forced this responsibility upon another former student of the Ancient One, Doctor Druid, who served as best he could yet was ultimately unable to maintain the operation.
Dr. Strange had barely finished enhancing his sorcery when Stevens and Strange rebelled against him; in the resulting clash, Stevens was apparently destroyed, and Strange went to the Dark Dimension, where he merged with the rebellion's Nobel as Paradox, working beside Clea. Using elemental magic to defeat Salome, Dr. Strange assumed a short-lived younger form and briefly adopted a more violent persona to shut down illegal operations engineered by Stevens. However, Dr. Strange's plans were interrupted when the Vishanti once again demanded his service in the War of the Seven Spheres. Unwilling to risk yet another loss of power, Strange complied.
Although Strange spent five thousand years fighting for the Vishanti against the mysterious Trinity of Ashes, he returned to Earth with little sign of physical age, only a few months after he had departed, his memories of the war largely suppressed; again, it is not known if anyone carried out Strange's duties in his absence. Having exhausted his typical powers, Strange sought new ones through the use of unpredictable Catastrophe Magic, which he later supplemented with so-called Chaos Magic; however, Strange later claimed there was no such thing as Chaos Magic, confusing matters considerably. In any event, Strange eventually regained the patronage of the Principalities, his powers restored to their height. Dormammu used the mutant Jonathon White and Strange's ally Topaz against the mage, but Strange drove off his enemy and magically guided another surgeon to save Topaz from Dormammu's attack.
Another sort of status quo returned when the extradimensional techno-mage Yandroth, an old foe of both Strange and the Defenders, unleashed destructive forces upon the Earth. Strange, Namor, Hulk and the Surfer united against Yandroth, but time had made them less compatible. When Yandroth seemingly perished, he used Earth's magical energy to bind the quarrelsome quartet with a spiteful curse that would force them together against all future threats to Earth, regardless of their other concerns. Other Defenders alumni lent their aid in coping with this situation, and Strange, although irritated by Yandroth's curse, was not untouched by the renewed camaraderie of his fellow heroes. However, the curse magnified the anger and egos of the four senior Defenders until they became mentally unstable and, as the Order, sought to end all threats to the Earth by taking control of it. Several other heroes, including Clea, fought them, and the energies unleashed by the battle were harnessed to resurrect Yandroth in a powerful new form. Shocked back to their senses by this development, the four Defenders stopped fighting, which reduced Yandroth to human form. Yandroth was defeated and imprisoned.
Shaken by his misuse of power and position, Strange cut himself off from his super-hero allies, even becoming aloof from his longtime friend Spider-Man. When the idealistic mystic Topaz (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Topaz) became Strange's fifth known disciple, he held her at an emotional distance and, when she disobeyed him in the aftermath of a mystic threat, he dismissed her. Although Strange continues to defend the Earth dimension and to assist fellow heroes as needed, his old arrogance has resurfaced, and his ultimate role in recent upheavals within the superhuman community remains to be seen.

http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/b/bc/Inf_physical.gif (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:Inf_physical.gif) Height6'2" Weight210 lbs. EyesBrown HairNone, formerly brown http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/6/62/Inf_powers.gif (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:Inf_powers.gif) Powers Deadpool possesses a superhuman healing factor derived from that of the mutant Wolverine that allows him to regenerate damaged or destroyed areas of his cellular structure at a rate far greater than that of an ordinary human. As such, he can regrow severed limbs or vital organs. The speed at which this healing factor works varies in direct proportion to the severity of the damage Deadpool suffers. This healing factor also affords Deadpool a virtual immunity to poisons and most drugs, as well as an enhanced resistance to diseases and an extended life span. Unlike Wolverine (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Wolverine_%28James_Howlett%29)’s natural healing factor, Deadpool’s is mentally driven to a partial extent. Due to the presence of this superhuman healing ability, many of Deadpool's natural physical attributes have been enhanced. Deadpool's musculature generates considerably less fatigue toxins than the muscles of an ordinary human being, granting him superhuman levels of stamina in all physical activities. His natural strength, agility and reflexes have been enhanced to levels that are beyond the natural limits of the human body. Deadpool's agility and reaction time are superior to those of even the finest human athlete.
Abilities Deadpool is an extraordinary hand-to-hand combatant and is skilled in multiple unarmed combat techniques. He is a master of assassination techniques, is an excellent marksman, and is highly skilled with bladed weapons (frequently carrying two swords strapped to his back). He is fluent in Japanese, German, Spanish, amongst other languages. Weapons Deadpool employs any number of weapons depending on his current assignment. Most often he will utilize a combination of guns and blades. Paraphernalia Deadpool utilizes a teleportation device located in his belt to whisk him out of (and occasionally into) danger, as well as a holographic image inducer that he can use to disguise his true appearance as necessary.
Following a brief stint of military service, the youth named Jack began his mercenary career while still in his late teens. Accepting assassination jobs only against those whom he felt deserved death, he made a habit of using plastic surgery and technology to take on a new identity whenever he failed an assignment. After one such failure, Jack was injured fleeing the wrath of his employers. He was found and nursed back to health by a young couple, Wade and Mercedes Wilson (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Wilson%2C_Mercedes&action=edit). Seeking to take over Wilson’s identity, Jack attacked him and left him for dead but accidentally killed Mercedes as well. Unhinged over murdering an innocent woman, Jack became convinced that he truly was Wade Wilson. Using that name, he returned to his mercenary activities. Little is known of the faux-Wilson’s subsequent mercenary activities. At one point he was active in Tangier, Morocco, where he romanced a woman named Francie. When this relationship soured, he traveled throughout Asia, and was hired in Japan by a crimelord, the Boss, to infiltrate a sumo-wrestling ring owned by a rival criminal, the Oyakata. Wilson spent three years as a wrestler under the Oyakata’s tutelage and became romantically involved with his mentor’s daughter, Sazae. When the Boss finally ordered the Oyakata’s murder, Wilson refused to complete his assignment, allegedly the first time he had ever done so, and relocated to the United States.
In America, Wilson met and fell in love with teenage prostitute Vanessa Carlysle (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Copycat), with whom he shared dreams of a better life. Wilson was subsequently hired by Middle Eastern interests to assassinate a blind British government operative named Althea, also known as Blind Al, but upon arrival at the Zaire base where she was stationed, he killed everyone except for Al who had fled. Wilson’s employers sought vengeance for his failure by targeting Vanessa, who was rescued by Zoe Culloden (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Culloden%2C_Zoe&action=edit), an employee of the interdimensional firm Landau, Luckman, Lake, and LeQuare (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Landau%2C_Luckman_and_Lake&action=edit). Culloden was keeping Wilson under surveillance, believing he was destined to play a vital part in a potential threat to the world.
Learning that he had contracted cancer, Wilson broke up with Vanessa rather than force her to remain with a terminally ill man. In Canada, he was offered hope in the form of Department K (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Department_K&action=edit), a special weapons development branch of the Canadian government. Wilson became a test subject in Department K’s branch of the joint U.S./Canadian superhuman enhancement project, the Weapon X Program; his cancer was temporarily arrested via the implantation of a healing factor derived from another Department K agent, the mutant adventurer Wolverine (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Wolverine_%28James_Howlett%29). Wilson was active in a covert field unit alongside the near-invulnerable Sluggo (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Sluggo&action=edit) and the cyborgs Kane (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Kane) and Slayback (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Slayback). Vanessa herself was later affiliated with the team after having manifested mutant shapeshifting abilities, calling herself Copycat.
During one mission, Wilson killed his teammate Slayback. As a result, he was rejected from the Weapon X Program and sent to the Hospice, allegedly a government facility where failed superhuman operatives were treated. However, unknown to the Canadian government, the Hospice’s patients served as experimental subjects for Doctor Killebrew (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Doctor_Killebrew&action=edit) and his sadistic assistant Ajax (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Ajax_%28Francis%29), with the patients placing bets in a "deadpool" as to how long each subject would live. Killebrew subjected Wilson to various torturous experiments for his own deranged satisfaction. In due course, Wilson formed a semi-romantic relationship with the cosmic entity Death (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Death_%28embodiment%29), who regarded him as a kindred spirit. Wilson’s emotional strength during his trials earned him the respect of his fellow Hospice patients. Then Ajax, angered by Wilson’s taunts, lobotomized one of Wilson’s friends. At Death’s prompting, Wilson killed his friend to end his suffering. However, under Killebrew’s rules any patient who killed another was to be executed; Ajax subsequently tore out Wilson’s heart and left him for dead, but Wilson’s thirst for vengeance was so strong that it jumpstarted his healing factor, regenerating his heart, although not curing his scarred body. Wilson then attacked Ajax, leaving him for dead in turn, and, taking the name Deadpool, escaped from the Hospice with his fellow patients.
Following his escape, Deadpool served for a time as an enforcer alongside the surgically altered criminal Hammerhead (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Hammerhead). He soon returned to his freelance mercenary activities, donning a costume in keeping with his new identity. At some point during his mercenary career he was employed as an assassin by Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin of crime. He also clashed with Wolverine, at that time a spy for the Canadian government. Also, at some point during these years, Deadpool caught up with Blind Al (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Blind_Al&action=edit) and kept her a prisoner in his home. Al’s attempts to escape only resulted in death for those whose help she sought, leaving her no choice but to resign herself to captivity.
Some years after escaping the Hospice, Deadpool, perhaps seeking compensation for the injuries inflicted upon him by Killebrew, returned to the Canadian government and was treated by Doctor Walter Langkowski, the bestial Sasquatch (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Sasquatch_%28Walter_Langkowski%29) of Canada’s super-team Alpha Flight (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Alpha_Flight). Deadpool soon found government work unsuited to his temperament, and he abandoned this endeavor. Hired by the criminal genius known as the Wizard (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Wizard), Deadpool at first went to the wrong address and received a job impersonating the criminal Hobgoblin. When again contacted by the Wizard, he joined with fellow criminals the Taskmaster (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Taskmaster) and the Constrictor (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Constrictor) in a short-lived version of the Frightful Four (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Frightful_Four). When this plan also failed, Deadpool sought to reclaim his position as the Kingpin’s assassin, only to be challenged by fellow assassin Bullseye (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Bullseye). Deadpool began frequenting the mercenary hangout called the Hellhouse, where the diminutive Patch (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Patch_%28dispatcher%29&action=edit) issued assignments. There he clashed with T-Ray (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=T-Ray&action=edit), a sorcerer and assassin to whom he took an immediate dislike. He subsequently found employment with the time-traveling arms merchant Tolliver (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Genesis), in whose service he was reunited with Sluggo and Copycat. Unbeknownst to Deadpool, Tolliver subsequently sent Copycat to impersonate another mutant mercenary, Domino. Deadpool also recruited a man named Weasel (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Weasel&action=edit) to act as his weapon supplier, and the two became fast friends.
After some time in Tolliver’s service, Deadpool was sent to kill Cable (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Cable), the mutant soldier from the future who was in fact Tolliver’s father and in whose company Copycat was impersonating Domino (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Domino_%28Neena_Thurman%29). However, Deadpool met defeat at the hands of Cable and his new charges, the young mutants in training known as the New Mutants (http://www.marvel.com/universe/New_Mutants). When Cable reorganized the New Mutants as X-Force (http://www.marvel.com/universe/X-Force), Tolliver was seemingly slain in battle with them, setting off a search by his various mercenaries for the advanced technology he had left behind. Deadpool’s participation in the search was interrupted by the surprising interference of Slayback, who had cybernetically reconstituted himself after being slain by Deadpool and was eager for revenge. In the course of the ensuing battle, Copycat was gravely injured, and Deadpool sacrificed part of his healing ability to save her life.
Deadpool subsequently helped X-Force member Siryn (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Siryn) against the unstoppable Juggernaut (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Juggernaut) and her uncle, Black Tom Cassidy (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Cassidy%2C_Black_Tom), who had forced Killebrew into their service. Deadpool developed a strong attachment to Siryn, who only partially returned his feelings. Unsure of his worthiness, Deadpool sought out Copycat, only to find she was now dating Kane. Deadpool fought both Kane and Wolverine, who had been sent to check on Kane by a mutual friend. Deadpool was subsequently abducted by information brokers seeking a cure for the Legacy Virus but was rescued by Wolverine and the mutant mercenary Maverick (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Agent_Zero).
Soon afterward, Deadpool was approached by Zoe Culloden of the rechristened Landau, Luckman, and Lake who believed he was destined to be the Mithras, one who would help usher in a golden age for Earth. Skeptical, Deadpool turned her away, only to be hit with a string of personal failures, including the alienation of Weasel and Blind Al. Hoping to turn over a new leaf, he found that killing was not so easily left behind when, at the behest of the ghosts of his former Weapon X inmates, he killed Ajax. He hoped to move forward by accepting Culloden’s offer, only to be dismayed when he learned that his destined role was to kill Tiamat (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Tiamat&action=edit), a potential threat to the arriving “Messiah.” Deadpool instead killed the Messiah when he learned that it brought not true peace but mindless bliss instead.http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/4/4d/Deadpool.gif (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:Deadpool.gif)
Having lost his optimism about bettering himself, Deadpool returned to his mercenary life. Troubled by recent events, he sought the counsel of deranged psychiatrist Doctor Bong (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Doctor_Bong&action=edit), who advised him to work out his difficulties in a fight with Wolverine. The fight indeed cleared Deadpool’s mind, but his psyche was dealt a stunning blow by the resurrection of Mercedes Wilson whom Deadpool still believed to be his wife. T-Ray revealed himself not only as the one responsible for her resurrection, but also as the true Wade Wilson. The revelation did not break Deadpool’s spirit as T-Ray had hoped, for the mercenary still harbored hopes of bettering himself. Swearing vengeance, T-Ray departed with Mercedes Wilson.
Later, in the course of an assassination assignment against author Duncan Vess, Deadpool again clashed with Wolverine who had sensed something strange about Vess. The pair found themselves battling Vess’s vengeful kinsmen after the author was revealed to be a werewolf, and they parted on good terms. Weeks later, Deadpool sought medical treatment for Siryn, who had been injured in a mission with X-Force. Allying himself with the mysterious Watchtower (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Watchtower_%28organization%29&action=edit) group, Deadpool captured Wolverine in exchange for Siryn’s treatment. Siryn was cured, while Wolverine easily outfought his captors.
Seeking a new place for himself, Deadpool briefly shared an apartment with fellow mercenaries Titania (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Titania_%28Mary_MacPherran%29) and the Constrictor. However, Titania proved to be Copycat in disguise, and the apartment was destroyed by the Wizard and the Taskmaster, both seeking revenge on Deadpool. He next established a secret warehouse headquarters and took on a young sidekick who called himself Kid Deadpool (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Kid_Deadpool&action=edit), but the youth, also seeking vengeance for Deadpool’s part in his father’s death, blew up the warehouse.
Deadpool was then tracked down by the feral mutant Sabretooth (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Sabretooth) and invited to join the new Weapon X Program. Impressed by Weapon X’s upgrade of his healing factor, he agreed to join, but soon found the organization’s methods to be too bloody even for him. After the death of Copycat at the hands of Sabretooth, he confronted the Director (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Colcord%2C_Malcolm), only to have his healing factor reversed to the point where he again lost physical cohesion and died. The lingering effects of Deadpool’s healing factor upgrade resurrected him, leaving him amnesiac. A chance encounter with Weasel restored his memory, and he discovered that four other individuals had laid claim to the Deadpool name. These impostors were aspects of his own personality given form by a device called the Gemini Star, wielded by his nemesis T-Ray who had been hired by the intergalactic villain Thanos (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Thanos), himself enamored of Death (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Death_%28embodiment%29) and jealous of Deadpool’s relationship with her. T-Ray intended to manifest and extinguish every aspect of Deadpool’s personality, leaving him an empty shell; however Deadpool damaged the Gemini Star, causing his personality fragments to be absorbed into T-Ray, rendering him comatose. The better to confuse his enemy, Deadpool mocked him by claiming to be the true Wade Wilson after all.
Following an assignment against the Four Winds crime family, Deadpool gained great status as a mercenary and formed a company called DP, Inc., aided by business partner Sandi Brandenberg (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Brandenberg%2C_Sandi&action=edit). His success was short-lived, however, when the Black Swan (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Black_Swan&action=edit), a fellow assassin who had actually slain the Four Winds himself, sought vengeance for Deadpool’s wrongful claim. Both men were believed dead after an explosive confrontation, but the Swan’s telepathic power caused the memories and skills of both himself and Deadpool to merge in the corpse of his underling Nijo (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Agent_X_%28Nijo%29). Deadpool’s healing factor resurrected Nijo, who, injured and amnesiac, found his way to Sandi’s apartment. Sandi believed Nijo to be Deadpool and nursed him back to health. Choosing the name Alex Hayden, Nijo joined Sandi and the Taskmaster in a new mercenary endeavor, Agency X.
http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/c/ce/CABDPL031-AConner.jpg (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:CABDPL031-AConner.jpg)

The Black Swan soon resurfaced, with Deadpool in tow, intending to restore all three men to their previous states. During the transfer, the Swan betrayed both Deadpool and Nijo, absorbing all of their abilities and achieving great power. With the help of his friends, Nijo broke through the Swan’s telepathic shield and defeated him, reversing the transfer. Himself once more, Deadpool declined an offer to join Agency X, returning to his solo career.
Deadpool was then hired by the One World Church to steal the Façade Virus from Sunic Pharmacopeia in Germany. The Church sought to use the virus to transform everyone into blue-skinned beings like themselves, but their plans were foiled by Cable. Deadpool ultimately worked alongside Cable in this endeavor, but it seems certain that the two adventurers will again find themselves at odds.

Cable aka Nathan Summers
http://www.x-mencharacters.com/images/Cable.jpg





http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/b/bc/Inf_physical.gif (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:Inf_physical.gif) Height6'8" Weight350 lbs. EyesBlue HairWhite (formerly Brown) http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/6/62/Inf_powers.gif (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:Inf_powers.gif) Powers Cable possesses vast psychic power, most often manifested in the forms of telepathy and telekinesis. His telepathy has proven great enough in power and scope as to allow him to read thoughts across vast distances, and even interface with multiple minds, simultaneously. While the full limits of his mental abilities in this area have yet to be disclosed, Cable has also demonstrated the ability to project bolts or blasts of mental energy that are capable of easily killing or rendering unconscious another Human being. These bolts do not do physical damage. Cable has also demonstrated mastery of astral projection, and is able to remain on his own plane of existence, or to traverse into any of the so-called "Astral Planes", very much like Professor X. Telekinetically, Cable is capable of very fine control over objects; he can disassemble complex devices explosively (separating every last component, such as screws, nuts, circuit boards, etc.), and just as quickly and easily assemble complex devices. This also has enabled him to even attain awareness and control over objects as small as individual electrons in an atom. For instance, Cable could detect if a seal was hermetic, or not, by checking for the presence of penetrating oxygen molecules. He could even detect and discern individual oxygen molecules, and determine the atomic weight of molecules, by the amount of atoms present. Cable has also demonstrated the ability to alter molecular and atomic structures in such substances as his own techno-organic components (though this may be a function of telekinesis, as opposed to a discreet superhuman power).
On larger levels, Cable can levitate great weights, into the tons, but his upper limit has remained undisclosed. This is possible that he doesn’t know his own limits, but it is unlikely, due to his intense commitment to training; more likely, Cable chooses not to disclose the full extent of his abilities, as he knows this is data that could be utilized against him, by opponents or even former allies. Cable has also been seen creating protective force fields around himself and others through the use of his telekinetic powers. The upper limits of this ability remain unknown, but it is believed that he could probably protect himself from harm at the ground zero detonation of a 1 kiloton nuclear warhead (4.18 terajoules of energy from the heat, concussion and radiation effects). It is possible that this may not be his upper limit, and may also be an indicator of the limits of his ability to lift large weights telekinetically. Cable has also displayed such control over the fields as to shape them precisely, even to conform very closely to his body’s form. There does not appear to be any correlation between field strength and the thickness of the telekinetic fields. Originally, Cable was telekinetically preoccupied by using his power to inhibit the progression of his body’s techno-organic virus throughout his body, and this was a process that required constant attention. With the solution to this problem through his merger with a techno-organic embryo, however, this function is no longer necessary, leaving him totally free to concentrate his telekinetic powers on other things.
He has displayed the ability to control the minds and even voluntary and involuntary bodily functions of sentient beings (such as other Humans)
Cable has proven very difficulty to psychically assail, as he is very well skilled in shielding his own mind from mental-attacks (such as attempts to read, control or harm his own mind), and has been sufficient to protect himself from other psychics on the level of Phoenix (Jean Grey), Professor X and Marvel Girl (Rachel Grey).
Much of Cable’s body has been infiltrated and altered by the techno-organic virus, which has taken the form of cybernetics and bionics, meaning he is a cyborg. The primary infection resides in Cable’s left side. As a consequence of his telekinetic guidance and his ability to control his own physical substance, Cable’s entire body has been heavily fortified, down to the cellular level, rendering superhuman strength to an unknown degree, as well as a superhuman level of resistance to physical harm. While he was injured in combat with the Hulk, the injuries were not nearly as severe as they should’ve been, especially in light of the fact that he was suffering from the effects of his techno-organic virus getting out of control. His entire skeletal structure has been replaced by porous, marrow-filled organic metalloid bone replacements that do not interfere with the creation of erythrocytes (red blood cells).
Cable possesses superhuman physical endurance, just as he does superhuman levels of mental endurance. He is capable of exerting himself at peak levels (fighting full-out, sprinting, etc.) for several hours, before fatigue begins to visibly impair his performance. He is also capable of going extended periods of time without sleep, being fully capable of fully resting with not much over an hour of sleep. However, whenever both possible and feasible, Cable still chooses to sleep for hours at a time (approximately 6 – 8), in order to dream. This high endurance has had other effects on his body, making even his soft tissues extremely durable, and more than up to the task of rendering him virtually immune to conventional firearms and conventional firearm munitions.
His entire CNS (Central Nervous System) has been augmented by chemical changes down to the atomic level and by biocomputer enhancement, rendering his reaction time far above what is possible for a Human being. In spite of his great size and impressive build, Cable is literally fast enough to evade high-powered bullets in-flight (after they have been fired), and even has the ability to visually track rounds after they’ve been fired (though they are not easy to see, except through his cybernetic eye). This great speed is also visible in superhuman levels of dexterity and agility, including manual and pedal dexterity. Spotting the speedster Super-Saber running at superhuman speed, Cable was actually able to physically attack and stop him. Super-Saber, himself, was fast enough to create “sonic booms” by snapping his fingers, and also had superhumanly high reaction time. However, in spite of his obviously great speed, he is still not as fast as other paranormals like Spider-Man and Daredevil.
Among his many cybernetic functions, Cable possesses a cybernetic left eye. This eye permits Cable to see deep into the EM (Electro-Magnetic) spectrum, and far deeper than any known 20th – 21st century technologies are capable of. It is also possible that through this eye, Cable is able to see the deployment of psionic energies, as well as the less exotic spectra of electromagnetic energies. His left arm is completely mechanical, and while Cable is ambidextrous, is his stronger arm, probably capable of allowing him to curl and deadlift several tons, without assistance from his right arm. His right arm is also cybernetic, but far less so.
Through a combination of his telekinetic abilities, and his ability to rearrange the atomic structures of matter (including his own techno-organic matter), Cable is able to rapidly repair any damaged components within his body. However, if there is widespread damage, this may not be possible, as he may be unable to muster the energy to affect these repairs. When he was attacked by Magneto, and virtually every component in the left side of his body was damaged or destroyed, Cable was left unable to repair enough systems to save his own life, and required outside assistance. It is through these abilities that the physical appearance of his cybernetic components has changed, over the passage of time, as well. At times, they have been articulated, smooth artificial limbs, while at others they have been observed to grow razor-sharp blades on command, as well as retract them. Cable is also able to rapidly redesign and improve his cybernetic and bionic components, thus. On-the-spot improvisations has allowed him to create a variety of microcomputers in his totally mechanized left arm that do such things as allow him to physically interface with exterior computers, uplink/download to computers he has hidden across the world and in space (such as those he had on Graymalkin), and even permit cellular communications and high-speed, broadband, wireless Internet access.
Cable possesses an intellect that may be on par with that of Reed Richards, which may be superhuman. He is also in possession of an education provided by the Clan Askani, which is far in advance of 20th – 21st century Earth-616 conventional education, especially in the sciences.
Abilities Cable is a highly accomplished warrior and battle strategist, highly adept in many forms of hand-to-hand combat and in the use of a variety of weaponry from both the 20th and 40th Centuries. Cable also holds a diploma in Law. Weapons Paraphernalia Cable's techno-organic left arm and shoulder possess enhanced strength, and his techno-organic right eye can see into the infrared portion of the spectrum. Cable has also wielded the Psimitar, an Askani weapon that channels his psionic powers, as well as a variety of firearms and other weapons


Nathan Summers' birth was carefully orchestrated by the geneticist Mister Sinister (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Mister_Sinister), who had created his mother Madelyne Pryor (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Pryor%2C_Madelyne) as a clone of the mutant telepath Jean Grey (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Phoenix_%28Jean_Grey%29). Soon after, Pryor was corrupted by demonic influences into using baby Nate as a sacrifice to open a portal between Earth and the demon-infested dimension Limbo, but was opposed by her husband and Nate's father Cyclops (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Cyclops_%28Scott_Summers%29), his teammates in X-Factor, and his former team the X-Men. Sinister planned to use Nate as a weapon against his former master, Apocalypse (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Apocalypse_%28En_Sabah_Nur%29), but Apocalypse learned of this and had Nate captured and infected with a deadly techno-organic virus. After Apocalypse was defeated by X-Factor, a member of the Clan Askani - a sisterhood dedicated to opposing Apocalypse in the alternate future of Earth-4935- offered to save Nate's life by taking him to her own era. Desperate, Cyclops agreed, and Nate was taken 2,000 years into the future of Earth-4935, where the Mother Askani, actually his time-displaced half-sister Rachel, had him cloned in case the virus could not be cured. Minions of Apocalypse attacked and stole the clone, taking it to their master, who raised the child as his heir, Stryfe (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Stryfe).
Rachel pulled the psyches of Scott and Jean into the future of Earth-4935 to help keep Nate safe, and, as Slym and Redd Dayspring, they raised him for the next 12 years, teaching him how to use his mutant powers to keep the virus at bay. After the teenage Nate defeated Apocalypse, he traveled to the last Askani enclave and was welcomed as the Askani'Son, "the Chosen One." After the enclave was attacked, Nate regrouped the surviving Askani into the rebel Clan Chosen. Nate later fell in love with young novitiate Aliya Jenskot, and soon they were married and had a son named Tyler. Following one clash with Stryfe, Aliya was killed and Tyler was captured. Stryfe brainwashed Tyler, and in a subsequent encounter, Nate was forced to shoot Tyler to save his Clanmate Dawnsilk. After Stryfe used a time travel device to flee into the past, arriving in the late 20th century, Nate followed. He arrived in Scotland, years before his birth, and was taken in by geneticist Moira MacTaggert (http://www.marvel.com/universe/MacTaggert%2C_Moira), who taught him how to speak English. He adopted the codename Cable, as a metaphor for being a link between the present in the future. Moira sent him to visit her friend Professor Xavier in the U.S., and en route he encountered the feral mutant Wolverine, aiding him against another agent from his own time, D'Von Kray. Meeting Xavier, Cable helped design the security systems for his mansion in exchange for lessons on how to live in the 20th century.

Cable formed the mercenary group the Wild Pack, later the Six Pack, and took missions from Tolliver, secretly Tyler, which often put them in conflict with Stryfe and his Mutant Liberation Front. Cable made occasional trips back to Earth-4935, at one point returning with a space station he named Graymalkin, after the address of Xavier's mansion. Returning to Earth-4935, Cable discovered that Sam Guthrie, the New Mutant Cannonball, existed into the 23rd century. Cable believed Sam was an immortal mutant, and returned to the present to guide Sam's ascension. With the aid of his mercenary ally and sometime lover Domino, Cable reorganized the New Mutants into the strike team X-Force. Later, Cable's former Six Pack teammate Kane was critically injured in a failed attempt to oppose Stryfe. To save his life, Cable transported Kane to Earth-4935, where he was saved and stayed with the Clan Chosen to recuperate, while Cable returned to the present. During his absence, Stryfe had made an attempt on Xavier's life and sought to frame Cable for the deed. Believing himself the true son of Cyclops, Stryfe kidnapped Cyclops and Jean. Cable came to their rescue, but during the struggle both he and Stryfe fell into a temporal rift. Displaced far into the future, scientists of that time saved Cable's life by using Stryfe's brainwaves. Cable and Kane later returned to the present, but upon arrival Cable discovered that Graymalkin had been destroyed, preventing him from returning home. Stryfe's mind eventually took control of Cable's body, but after being confronted with the truth of his existence he relinquished that control.

When the psionic entity Onslaught hampered all telepathic abilities on Earth, Cable began to succumb to the TO virus. After attacks by Onslaught's herald Post and a mentally-controlled Hulk (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Hulk) weakened Cable further, he found himself allying with his nemesis Apocalypse in order to rescue the young mutant Franklin Richards (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Richards%2C_Franklin) from Onslaught (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Onslaught_%28entity%29), after which Franklin helped Cable suppress the virus. Later, Cable learned from journalist Irene Merryweather of a plot by the enigmatic Hellfire Club to obtain Apocalypse's power. Cable was too late to prevent them from unleashing Apocalypse's Harbinger on the world, but he managed to defeat it with the aid of the Avengers. Realizing that the culmination of his destiny was near, Cable asked Irene to chronicle his life. Soon after, Cable learned that he was one of the Twelve, mutants supposedly destined to usher in a golden age for their kind. Apocalypse intended to use the Twelve to boost his powers to allow him to alter reality and had them captured. Cyclops seemingly sacrificed himself to stop Apocalypse, and Cable joined the X-Men to honor his memory. Subsequently learning that Cyclops was still alive, Cable and Jean tracked him down to Egypt. Jean forcibly removed Apocalypse's essence from Cyclops' body, allowing Cable to seemingly destroy it. His purpose in life apparently complete, Cable returned to his mercenary ways, eventually forming the Underground resistance movement to oppose the clandestine Weapon X Project. A failed infiltration attempt of the Neverland mutant concentration camp saw them captured and the knowledge of Neverland wiped from their minds. Cable later found himself at odds with the mercenary Deadpool (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Deadpool) over the One World Church and their planned use of the Façade Virus to transform the world's people into blue-skinned beings like themselves in the hope of bringing about peace on Earth.


Cable ultimately realized that his body would be unable to contain his vast energies, and so set out to save the world before he died. Rebuilding his space station as the floating city Providence, Cable realized that the only way to force the people's of Earth to see the potential of a unified future was to unite them against the common goal of opposing him. Initially opposed by the super-spy agency S.H.I.E.L.D. and the X-Men, Cable faced the cosmic-powered Silver Surfer (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Silver_Surfer), which caused his powers to burn out rapidly. He used his teleportation matrix to surgically remove the portions of his brain that controlled his mutant abilities, effectively lobotomizing himself. Deadpool then enlisted the aid of the Fixer to merge Cable with a techno-organic embryo, restoring his powers. Cable subsequently reformed X-Force to oppose the ancient evil named the Skornn, which he was able to destroy at the apparent cost of his own life. Cannonball (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Cannonball_%28Sam_Guthrie%29) and his fellow former X-Force member Siryn joined Deadpool on a quest to find Cable, and after finding his life force scattered across alternate realities, they collected it and returned to their own universe to discover that Cable had reverted to an infant when the mutant sorceress the Scarlet Witch (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Scarlet_Witch_%28Wanda_Maximoff%29) reshaped reality. The mutant technosmith Forge was able to restore Cable, who began aging rapidly. Faced with being overwhelmed by his powers, Cable expended them by curing Deadpool of the brain damage he had suffered years earlier at the hands of Weapon X. As he re-aged, Cable's powers returned.

Thor aka Donald Blake, Sigurd Jarlson, Jake Olsen, Donar the Mighty
http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/9/99/Odison.jpg

http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/b/bc/Inf_physical.gif (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:Inf_physical.gif) Height6'6" Weight640 lbs EyesBlue HairBlond http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/6/62/Inf_powers.gif (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:Inf_powers.gif) Powers As the son of Odin and Gaea, Thor's strength, endurance and resistance to injury are greater than the vast majority of his superhuman race. He is extremely long-lived (though not completely immune to aging), immune to conventional disease, and highly resistant to injury. His flesh and bones are several times denser than a human's. As Lord of Asgard, Thor possesses the Odinforce, which enables him to tap into the near-infinite resources of cosmic and mystical, enhancing all of his abilities. With the vast magical power of the Odinforce, Thor was able to even dent Captain America’s shield with Mjolnir.

Abilities Thor is trained in the arts of war, being a superbly skilled warrior, highly proficient in hand-to-hand combat, swordsmanship, and hammer throwing.

Weapons Thor wields Mjolnir, a hammer forged from uru metal. Mjolnir is virtually unbreakable, and allows Thor to command the powers of the storm, causing rain, thunder and lightning. Thor can channel the storm’s fury into devastating blasts of energy that can destroy even secondary Adamantium. He can also channel his godly energies through Mjolnir into blasts so powerful that they can slay even immortals. Mjolnir can absorb other energies into itself, which Thor can then release. Mjolnir obeys Thor’s commands as though it were alive, and if Thor’s will is strong enough, the hammer can pass through nearly any barrier to reach him should he so desire. Using this command over Mjolnir’s flight path, Thor is able to use the hammer to fly, achieving escape velocities. Mjolnir can also transform Thor into his civilian guises. When Thor is a civilian, the hammer most often becomes an old wooden cane. While employing a mortal guise, Thor will transform back into his mortal form should he be separated from Mjolnir for more than 60 seconds.
By spinning Mjolnir in a circle, Thor can open portals to other dimensions. Formerly, it also allowed him to travel in time, but Immortus removed this power. Enchantments surrounding Mjolnir prevent it from being wielded by anyone save those who have been found worthy. Thus far, this includes Thor, Odin, Tiwaz, Red Norvell, Beta Ray Bill, and Captain America. To anyone else, Mjolnir cannot be lifted from the ground nor wrested from Thor’s grip.

Paraphernalia Thor also possesses the Belt of Strength that doubles his strength, but weakens him after its use; a pair of iron gauntlets to protect him when unleashing Mjolnir's most powerful energies; and a chariot drawn by two goats, Toothgnasher and Toothgrinder.

Ages ago, Odin (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Odin), lord of the gods of Asgard (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Asgard), desired a child of both Asgard and Midgard (Earth), and therefore sought out and wooed Gaea (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Gaea), the eldest goddess of the Earth. Gaea gave birth to Thor in a small cave in Norway, and Odin took him to be raised in Asgard by his wife, Frigga (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Frigga). The young Thor grew up alongside his step-brother Loki (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Loki), who was always jealous of Thor, the favored son. Thor excelled in power and popularity, and on his eighth birthday, Odin had the hammer Mjolnir created, enchanting it with powerful magic. He decreed that Mjolnir would be presented to Thor when he had been proven a worthy warrior, and Thor spent the next several years training and performing heroic deeds. Indeed, eight years later, Odin gave the hammer to Thor, declaring him to be the greatest warrior in Asgard.
Thor traveled to Earth for the first time in the Ninth Century A.D., in response to his worship among the Vikings. Thor reveled in his worship, leading many in battle and extolling the way of the warrior. Years later, a set of Vikings killed innocent inhabitants of a Christian monastery in Thor’s name. In shock and disillusion, Thor cut himself off from his worshippers and returned to Asgard. The Asgardian religion would never be as fervent, eventually dying out completely over the centuries.
In the other eight worlds of Asgard, however, Thor continued to perform many acts of battle and adventure. Unfortunately, he grew headstrong, proud, and selfish. It pained the heart of Odin. One day, Thor chased a monster into the land of the Frost Giants, a breech of protocol that nearly sparked a war in all of Asgard. Odin had to teach Thor a lesson. He created a mortal body for him, one with a lame leg, and sent Thor, stripped of his powers and memories, to Earth. Thor arrived on the campus of New York State College of Medicine as Donald Blake. Blake proved to be the humble and patient man Odin had hoped for. He eventually graduated with top honors, gained a reputation as a caring family doctor and a brilliant surgeon, and opened a private practice in New York City. His nurse, Jane Foster, was equally caring and competent, and the two began to fall in love.
This idyllic life was not to last. The alien Kronans were coming to invade. When taking a vacation in Norway, Blake stumbled onto the Kronan scouts’ spaceship and fled into a cave. (It was, unknown to him, the same cave in which Gaea had given birth to Thor.) In a secret chamber, Blake discovered a plain walking cane. Taking it with him, he tried to escape, only to find his way blocked. Frustrated and scared, he struck the boulder with the cane, transforming it into Mjolnir and himself into Thor. He fought the alien scouts, who retreated from Earth and called off their invasion. By tapping the ground with Mjolnir, he transformed back into Don Blake, holding a simple wooden cane.
Blake returned to New York, using his secret identity of Thor to fight crime, defend Earth, and contend with Loki, who, after learning of Thor’s return, felt all the old jealousy and hatred, plaguing Thor with many tricks and outright confrontation. One such trick led Thor and other heroes to fight the Hulk (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Hulk), after which the heroes bested Loki and decided to form the Avengers (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Avengers).
The love between Thor and Foster continued for many years, made more difficult by Odin’s displeasure in the relationship between god and mortal. He forbade Blake from revealing his identity to her, creating a strange love triangle between Foster and the personas of Thor and Blake.
Even though Blake knew he was the legendary Thor, he still had no memory of his former life. Over time, his memories slowly returned, until one day, when Odin finally revealed himself and restored Thor’s complete memory. Odin also revealed that it was he who had discovered the Kronan invasion force and implanted a suggestion in Blake’s mind so that he would arrive in Norway and battle the aliens as Thor. He also reintroduced Thor to his childhood friend, the woman warrior Sif (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Sif), and they renewed their friendship, further complicating Thor/Blake’s love life.
The love affair between Thor and Jane Foster eventually ended when Foster fell in love with a mortal man, Kevin Kincaid. Their engagement was cut short when Foster lay dying. Sif allowed herself to merge with Foster, saving the woman's life. The two were later separated when Foster was sent to a limbo-realm accessed by the Runestaff of the Possessor. Thor, Sif, and Kevin Kincaid were later able to rescue Foster, and the two mortals were then married.
Although Thor maintained his Blake persona for many years, he permanently gave it up shortly after meeting Beta Ray Bill (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Beta_Ray_Bill). Bill had twice proven himself worthy of the hammer of Thor, after picking it up during a battle with Thor and, later, against the forces of Surtur. Odin brought Beta Ray Bill to Asgard, giving him a similar weapon in Stormbreaker. The enchantment that transformed Thor into Blake was transferred to Stormbreaker, and Thor abandoned his Blake identity, residing in Asgard and commuting to Earth when needed. Later, in hopes of creating another identity so as to more easily remain on Earth, Thor sought help from Nick Fury (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Fury%2C_Nick) and S.H.I.E.L.D. (http://www.marvel.com/universe/S.H.I.E.L.D.). The organization helped Thor create an identity as Sigurd Jarlson, a construction worker. In this identity, Thor simply pulled back his hair, wore glasses, and dressed like a normal human.
When Surtur (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Surtur) joined forces with the Dark Elves, Thor, Loki, and Odin protected Asgard by mingling their essences and thereby increasing their powers. But it was Odin that gave the greatest sacrifice, grappling with Surtur and throwing themselves into a huge chasm. Asgard was left without its leader. Lorelei (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Lorelei_%28Asgardian%29), with the help of Loki, enchanted Thor and caused him to fall in love with her in hopes that Thor would then help Loki become the new ruler. Thor broke free of the enchantment, but the incident had strained Thor's relationship with Sif.
The gods of Asgard continued with the Great Althing, a ceremony to chose a new leader. But before Thor could return to Asgard, he was turned into a frog by Loki. Thor became embroiled in the battle between the frogs and the rats of Central Park until Thor the Frog could find his hammer. When he did so, he turned into a frog-like humanoid, the Thunder Frog. Meanwhile, in Asgard, Harokin, an Asgardian warrior, pretended to be Thor so as to cast his vote for Loki. Thor captured Loki, but it was Volstagg (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Volstagg&action=edit) who found a machine that was using power from Surtur's sword to provide energy for Loki’s transformation spell. Volstagg destroyed the machine, which returned Thor into his normal form. Thor then talked the Asgardians (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Asgardians) into making Balder (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Balder) their new leader.
Balder, Thor, and others then traveled to Hel, the realm of the Asgardian death goddess, Hela (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Hela), to rescue a number of Earth souls that had been unrightfully taken by Hela. In battle with Hela herself, Thor’s face was badly scarred, but he and his allies were able to save the souls. Immediately afterward, the omnipotent Beyonder (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Maker) transformed the leader of the Dark Elves into Kurse (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Kurse), and Thor defeated Kurse by sending him to Hel. With Kurse rampaging through her realm, Hela grew furious. She cursed Thor that so his bones became brittle and so that he could not die from his injuries. Humiliated but determined to remain a warrior to the end, Thor grew a beard to conceal his facial scars and donned a suit of battle armor to support his fragile body.
Loki took this opportunity to release the Midgard Serpent, the beast that was prophesized to kill Thor and start Ragnarok. Despite his weakened condition, Thor was able to kill the Midgard Serpent and, thanks to Hela’s curse, Thor survived the battle although his body was completely broken and battered. Loki then sent the Destroyer (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Destroyer_%28construct%29) armor to torment Thor, but instead, Thor managed to send his spirit into the Destroyer armor take command of it. He traveled to Hel in the Destroyer and began wreaking havoc. The desperate Hela had no choice but to fully restore Thor’s original body and release him from her curse.
After a battle between Asgard and the Egyptian god of death, Seth (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Seth), which resulted in Odin’s restoration to the throne of Asgard, Thor began having many problems of his own. He began to suffer sudden and momentary bouts of weakness during times of stress. When Thor's spells of weakness almost caused his death several times, Thor asked for help from Doctor Strange (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Doctor_Strange_%28Stephen_Strange%29), who entered Thor's mind and traveled with him in spirit. Inside Thor's mind, they discovered an evil version of Thor, who battled the real Thor. They then discovered that it was actually a portion of Loki's evil essence caused by the time Thor, Loki, and Odin had become mingled during Surtur's first attack on Asgard, and the Thor defeated the alternate version.
Thor, in his identity of Jarlson, had became friends with the architect Eric Masterson and Masterson's son, Kevin. Masterson was kidnapped, however, by the Mongoose (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Mongoose), who had previously attacked Thor, trying to gain a cell sample from the god of thunder. Thor tracked Masterson to the High Evolutionary’s base, freeing him and learning that the High Evolutionary (http://www.marvel.com/universe/High_Evolutionary) was missing, along with Hercules (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Hercules). Thor, accompanied by Masterson, freed Hercules and the High Evolutionary from the Celestials (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Celestials) holding them prisoner in the Black Galaxy. Upon returning to Earth, they were attacked by the Mongoose, and Masterson blocked a blast of energy meant for Thor, giving Thor and Hercules a chance to defeat Mongoose. Unfortunately, Masterson was dying from his wounds. Thor pleaded with Odin on Masterson’s behalf. Odin reluctantly agreed to save him, but did so by merging Thor and Masterson together, body and soul.
Thor and Masterson shared a body much as Blake and Thor had, although the latter were never separate beings. They dealt with their new condition, despite the problems it caused for Masterson's private life and custody of his son. Thor continued his adventures, and Loki continued to plague Thor and his friends. Eventually, the two’s bodies were separated by a Celestial while they were involved in the birth of a new Celestial in the Black Galaxy. During a tremendous battle between Surtur and Ymir (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Ymir&action=edit), a battle that signaled Ragnarok, Thor recovered Surtur's sword from the Sea of Eternal Night, hoping to confront the fire and ice elementals. Unfortunately, he was weakened by his separation from Masterson and was easily stopped by the two creatures. Masterson willingly merged with Thor again, even though it meant giving up part of his life. Ymir and Surtur fought over the sword, and Thor opened a dimensional rift that sucked them both into the Sea of Eternal Night.
When Thor returned to Earth, he quickly found himself in battle with Loki over the fate of Kevin, Masterson's son. Although Loki was defeated, he fired one last blast at Kevin and his mother Marcy, but it was blocked by Masterson’s secretary, Susan Austin, killing her. It was the last straw. Angered as never before, Thor absorbed all of Loki's lifeforce with his hammer, presumably destroying the evil god forever, although this broke Odin's sacred rule forbidding Asgardian gods to kill each other.
However, this was all according to Loki’s plan with Mephisto (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Mephisto), as Loki was able to send his spirit into that of Odin and thus send Odin’s spirit to the realm of Mephisto. Loki posed as Odin, banishing Thor from existence. Instead, Masterson’s body was left intact, and it was Thor’s soul that became banished. Masterson could still assume Thor's form after striking his cane, and Masteron tried to pose as Thor on Earth, including his membership in the Avengers. Loki’s decrees as Odin became increasingly irrational and persecuting. Thor battled Loki but was left near-dead, rescued by Sif, Balder, and the Warriors Three (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Warriors_Three&action=edit). Surprisingly, Mephisto betrayed Loki, giving Odin’s spirit over to the heroes, and Odin reclaimed his body, forcing Loki into Mephsito’s waiting clutches, who claimed this to be his true goal all along. Odin revealed that Thor’s spirit still resided with Masterson, and he separated the two. (Masterson was still able to transform into a version of Thor, and he created a separate heroic identity as Thunderstrike (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Thunderstrike).)
Unfortunately, with the constant shifting of identities and sharing of power, Thor was left mentally unbalanced. Sif began to suspect Thor was falling prey to the incurable Warrior’s Madness and, with Beta Ray Bill, the Silver Surfer (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Silver_Surfer), and the Infinity Watch (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Infinity_Watch), she confronted Thor. During the conflict, Thor stole the Power Gem from Drax the Destroyer (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Drax_the_Destroyer), becoming power incarnate. Believing that only Thanos (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Thanos) could stop Thor, the heroes elicited his help. However, all they could do was restrain him. Thor was taken to Odin, who discovered the truth behind the malady after a spiritual journey through Thor’s mind. Thor fought the personification of his own madness, that of a beautiful Valkyre, and destroyed it.
This experience sparked Thor’s anger at his father regarding his discipline of humility. He left Asgard, allying with the High Evolutionary and his newly created godlike beings, the Godpack (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Godpack&action=edit). In the meantime, Odin decided that the time had come for Ragnarok to begin, and he needed Thor. Odin resurrected Red Norvell (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Thor_%28Red_Norvell%29&action=edit), who once held the mantle of thunder god but had died in battle, and re-made him into Thor. He declared Norvell to be his son and disowned Thor. He also told his son the truth about Donald Blake-- that he was never a separate being. Enraged, Thor severed his ties with Asgard.
Odin hoped to bypass Ragnarok by transforming the gods into mortals, but his plan was hijacked by Seth, and put it into action prematurely. Asgard fell, and its gods were banished to Earth. Odin hoped Thor would restore the gods to power, but before he could, Thor fell in battle with Onslaught. Thor vanished, along with other heroes such as the Avengers, but, like them, he was merely reborn to another dimension and was eventually returned.
When Thor returned, he discovered the Dark Gods (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Dark_Gods) had claimed Asgard and held the Asgardians captive. They sent the Destroyer on a rampage on Earth, and Thor and the Avengers confronted it. The Avengers were defeated and even Thor was left near dead. The mysterious Marnot (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Marnot) offered to restore Thor in exchange for taking the place of Jake Olsen, a paramedic who died during the battle. Thor agreed, fighting the Destroyer again and banishing it to another dimension. Thor found he could transform between himself and Olsen, although he had none of Olsen’s memories and that made it difficult to maintain two identities.
The Dark Gods, in the guise of Asgardians, attacked Olympus (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Olympus) and left it in ruins. Thor and Hercules uncovered the truth led the battle against the Dark Gods, eventually freeing both Asgard and Olympus and restoring them to glory. Marnot revealed that the Dark Gods had once invaded Asgard ages ago, and Odin had prepared an enchantment on Hescamar, his raven, to seek out a way to defeat the Dark Gods should they return. The raven had fulfilled this by transforming into Marnot and helping Thor. Afterwards, Thor remained on Earth with his dual identity of Jake Olsen.
Among his subsequent adventures, Thor rescued Tarene, the cosmic being known as the Designate, who would later take on the identity of Thor Girl (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Thor_Girl) out of admiration of Thor. Thor and Thor Girl battled the alien Gladiator (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Gladiator_%28Kallark%29), who vowed to destroy Thor in a preemptive strike to prevent a terrible horror that he believed Thor would inflict in the future. As such, Thor was unable to defend Asgard against an army of Asgardian trolls that overwhelmed the city's defenses. Odin was forced to defeat the trolls, and he confronted Thor, disappointed in his son's inability to remain loyal to Asgard. As punishment, Odin stripped Thor of his immortality and left him on Earth.
Shortly afterward, Loki brought the Destroyer back to Earth, animating it with the soul of Tarene. Ultimately, the Destroyer was thwarted and Tarene was restored, but during the battle, Thor was severely wounded. Dr. Jane Foster could heal Jake Olsen's wounds but remained unable to treat Thor's. Odin brought Thor to Asgard and physically separated Thor from his alter ego to allow Thor to heal and to allow Jake Olsen to return to his life on Earth.
When Surtur appeared on Earth, an assemblage of Asgardian heroes and their allies confronted the demon and his hordes. Tarene used her powers to restore Thor to full health, joining with Odin and the Asgardian warriors against Surtur. In the end, Odin tapped into both Thor and Tarene's powers to deliver a fatal blow against Surtur, sacrificing himself in the process.
In mourning the loss of his father, Thor initially refused to take Odin's place, until a discussion with Jake Olsen convinced Thor to assume the responsibilities of the new monarch of Asgard. Thor did so, gaining the Odin-power as a right of rule.
Thor left Tarene to take his place as a crime-fighting super-hero on Earth, under the guidance of Jake Olsen. When Thor Girl was nearly destroyed in a battle with the Grey Gargoyle (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Grey_Gargoyle), Olsen sought help from the Enchantress (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Enchantress). She agreed to transform him into a version of Thor, but Olsen didn’t know that the transformation came with a price, as it would rob Thor in Asgard of some of his power while Olsen was Thor. Desak (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Desak&action=edit), the self-styled destroyer of gods, confronted the Olsen-Thor, nearly killing him. Thor managed to return from Asgard to defeat Desak, with the help of the Executioner's mystic axe, given to Thor by the Enchantress. However, Thor seemed to be influenced by a corruption of the Odin-power he now possessed coupled with the influence of the Executioner's axe.
With the help of a Thor (Earth-3515) (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Thor_%28Earth-3515%29&action=edit) from an alternate future, Thor re-merged his younger self with Jake Olsen to again bring humanity back to Thor’s perspective. In doing so, he lost the Odin-power but freed the world from its potential terrible history. Asgard was returned to its regular plane of existence.
Almost immediately, Thor was attacked by Loki, who had teamed with Surtur to create weapons for Thor’s enemies that were forged in the same way as Mjolnir. The fight for Asgard ascended to a level of Ragnarok. Although Thor managed to defeat Loki, severing his head, the war left many of Thor’s allies, such as Sif and the Warriors Three, dead. Thor forced Surtur to re-forge Mjolnir, which had shattered during the battle. While Asgard succumbed to Ragnarok, effectively wiping the Asgardian world from existence, Thor sought out the gods known as Those Who Sit Above In Shadow (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Those_Who_Sit_Above_In_Shadow). Thor refused an offer to join them, instead confronting them in battle. Thor destroyed Those Who Sit Above In Shadow as Asgard died. The Odinpower congratulated Thor on succeeding at his greatest mission. Thor then closed his eyes, apparently joining his people in death.
Shortly following Thor's actions, the Mjolnir sped through the cosmos and landed on Earth, bringing the seemingly deceased Doctor Doom (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Doctor_Doom_%28Victor_von_Doom%29) with it. Doom sought out the Mjolnir, believing he was worthy. However, when he reached the hammer, there was a blast of light, and Doom found he was not worthy of the Mjolnir. Reed Richards (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Mister_Fantastic) of the Fantastic Four (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Fantastic_Four) stated that he believed the flash may have been a signal to someone, perhaps signifying the return of Thor and the Asgardians.

Cable aka Nathan Summers
http://www.x-mencharacters.com/images/Cable.jpg





http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/b/bc/Inf_physical.gif (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:Inf_physical.gif) Height6'8" Weight350 lbs. EyesBlue HairWhite (formerly Brown) http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/6/62/Inf_powers.gif (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:Inf_powers.gif) Powers Cable possesses vast psychic power, most often manifested in the forms of telepathy and telekinesis. His telepathy has proven great enough in power and scope as to allow him to read thoughts across vast distances, and even interface with multiple minds, simultaneously. While the full limits of his mental abilities in this area have yet to be disclosed, Cable has also demonstrated the ability to project bolts or blasts of mental energy that are capable of easily killing or rendering unconscious another Human being. These bolts do not do physical damage. Cable has also demonstrated mastery of astral projection, and is able to remain on his own plane of existence, or to traverse into any of the so-called "Astral Planes", very much like Professor X. Telekinetically, Cable is capable of very fine control over objects; he can disassemble complex devices explosively (separating every last component, such as screws, nuts, circuit boards, etc.), and just as quickly and easily assemble complex devices. This also has enabled him to even attain awareness and control over objects as small as individual electrons in an atom. For instance, Cable could detect if a seal was hermetic, or not, by checking for the presence of penetrating oxygen molecules. He could even detect and discern individual oxygen molecules, and determine the atomic weight of molecules, by the amount of atoms present. Cable has also demonstrated the ability to alter molecular and atomic structures in such substances as his own techno-organic components (though this may be a function of telekinesis, as opposed to a discreet superhuman power).
On larger levels, Cable can levitate great weights, into the tons, but his upper limit has remained undisclosed. This is possible that he doesn’t know his own limits, but it is unlikely, due to his intense commitment to training; more likely, Cable chooses not to disclose the full extent of his abilities, as he knows this is data that could be utilized against him, by opponents or even former allies. Cable has also been seen creating protective force fields around himself and others through the use of his telekinetic powers. The upper limits of this ability remain unknown, but it is believed that he could probably protect himself from harm at the ground zero detonation of a 1 kiloton nuclear warhead (4.18 terajoules of energy from the heat, concussion and radiation effects). It is possible that this may not be his upper limit, and may also be an indicator of the limits of his ability to lift large weights telekinetically. Cable has also displayed such control over the fields as to shape them precisely, even to conform very closely to his body’s form. There does not appear to be any correlation between field strength and the thickness of the telekinetic fields. Originally, Cable was telekinetically preoccupied by using his power to inhibit the progression of his body’s techno-organic virus throughout his body, and this was a process that required constant attention. With the solution to this problem through his merger with a techno-organic embryo, however, this function is no longer necessary, leaving him totally free to concentrate his telekinetic powers on other things.
He has displayed the ability to control the minds and even voluntary and involuntary bodily functions of sentient beings (such as other Humans)
Cable has proven very difficulty to psychically assail, as he is very well skilled in shielding his own mind from mental-attacks (such as attempts to read, control or harm his own mind), and has been sufficient to protect himself from other psychics on the level of Phoenix (Jean Grey), Professor X and Marvel Girl (Rachel Grey).
Much of Cable’s body has been infiltrated and altered by the techno-organic virus, which has taken the form of cybernetics and bionics, meaning he is a cyborg. The primary infection resides in Cable’s left side. As a consequence of his telekinetic guidance and his ability to control his own physical substance, Cable’s entire body has been heavily fortified, down to the cellular level, rendering superhuman strength to an unknown degree, as well as a superhuman level of resistance to physical harm. While he was injured in combat with the Hulk, the injuries were not nearly as severe as they should’ve been, especially in light of the fact that he was suffering from the effects of his techno-organic virus getting out of control. His entire skeletal structure has been replaced by porous, marrow-filled organic metalloid bone replacements that do not interfere with the creation of erythrocytes (red blood cells).
Cable possesses superhuman physical endurance, just as he does superhuman levels of mental endurance. He is capable of exerting himself at peak levels (fighting full-out, sprinting, etc.) for several hours, before fatigue begins to visibly impair his performance. He is also capable of going extended periods of time without sleep, being fully capable of fully resting with not much over an hour of sleep. However, whenever both possible and feasible, Cable still chooses to sleep for hours at a time (approximately 6 – 8), in order to dream. This high endurance has had other effects on his body, making even his soft tissues extremely durable, and more than up to the task of rendering him virtually immune to conventional firearms and conventional firearm munitions.
His entire CNS (Central Nervous System) has been augmented by chemical changes down to the atomic level and by biocomputer enhancement, rendering his reaction time far above what is possible for a Human being. In spite of his great size and impressive build, Cable is literally fast enough to evade high-powered bullets in-flight (after they have been fired), and even has the ability to visually track rounds after they’ve been fired (though they are not easy to see, except through his cybernetic eye). This great speed is also visible in superhuman levels of dexterity and agility, including manual and pedal dexterity. Spotting the speedster Super-Saber running at superhuman speed, Cable was actually able to physically attack and stop him. Super-Saber, himself, was fast enough to create “sonic booms” by snapping his fingers, and also had superhumanly high reaction time. However, in spite of his obviously great speed, he is still not as fast as other paranormals like Spider-Man and Daredevil.
Among his many cybernetic functions, Cable possesses a cybernetic left eye. This eye permits Cable to see deep into the EM (Electro-Magnetic) spectrum, and far deeper than any known 20th – 21st century technologies are capable of. It is also possible that through this eye, Cable is able to see the deployment of psionic energies, as well as the less exotic spectra of electromagnetic energies. His left arm is completely mechanical, and while Cable is ambidextrous, is his stronger arm, probably capable of allowing him to curl and deadlift several tons, without assistance from his right arm. His right arm is also cybernetic, but far less so.
Through a combination of his telekinetic abilities, and his ability to rearrange the atomic structures of matter (including his own techno-organic matter), Cable is able to rapidly repair any damaged components within his body. However, if there is widespread damage, this may not be possible, as he may be unable to muster the energy to affect these repairs. When he was attacked by Magneto, and virtually every component in the left side of his body was damaged or destroyed, Cable was left unable to repair enough systems to save his own life, and required outside assistance. It is through these abilities that the physical appearance of his cybernetic components has changed, over the passage of time, as well. At times, they have been articulated, smooth artificial limbs, while at others they have been observed to grow razor-sharp blades on command, as well as retract them. Cable is also able to rapidly redesign and improve his cybernetic and bionic components, thus. On-the-spot improvisations has allowed him to create a variety of microcomputers in his totally mechanized left arm that do such things as allow him to physically interface with exterior computers, uplink/download to computers he has hidden across the world and in space (such as those he had on Graymalkin), and even permit cellular communications and high-speed, broadband, wireless Internet access.
Cable possesses an intellect that may be on par with that of Reed Richards, which may be superhuman. He is also in possession of an education provided by the Clan Askani, which is far in advance of 20th – 21st century Earth-616 conventional education, especially in the sciences.
Abilities Cable is a highly accomplished warrior and battle strategist, highly adept in many forms of hand-to-hand combat and in the use of a variety of weaponry from both the 20th and 40th Centuries. Cable also holds a diploma in Law. Weapons Paraphernalia Cable's techno-organic left arm and shoulder possess enhanced strength, and his techno-organic right eye can see into the infrared portion of the spectrum. Cable has also wielded the Psimitar, an Askani weapon that channels his psionic powers, as well as a variety of firearms and other weapons


Nathan Summers' birth was carefully orchestrated by the geneticist Mister Sinister (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Mister_Sinister), who had created his mother Madelyne Pryor (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Pryor%2C_Madelyne) as a clone of the mutant telepath Jean Grey (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Phoenix_%28Jean_Grey%29). Soon after, Pryor was corrupted by demonic influences into using baby Nate as a sacrifice to open a portal between Earth and the demon-infested dimension Limbo, but was opposed by her husband and Nate's father Cyclops (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Cyclops_%28Scott_Summers%29), his teammates in X-Factor, and his former team the X-Men. Sinister planned to use Nate as a weapon against his former master, Apocalypse (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Apocalypse_%28En_Sabah_Nur%29), but Apocalypse learned of this and had Nate captured and infected with a deadly techno-organic virus. After Apocalypse was defeated by X-Factor, a member of the Clan Askani - a sisterhood dedicated to opposing Apocalypse in the alternate future of Earth-4935- offered to save Nate's life by taking him to her own era. Desperate, Cyclops agreed, and Nate was taken 2,000 years into the future of Earth-4935, where the Mother Askani, actually his time-displaced half-sister Rachel, had him cloned in case the virus could not be cured. Minions of Apocalypse attacked and stole the clone, taking it to their master, who raised the child as his heir, Stryfe (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Stryfe).
Rachel pulled the psyches of Scott and Jean into the future of Earth-4935 to help keep Nate safe, and, as Slym and Redd Dayspring, they raised him for the next 12 years, teaching him how to use his mutant powers to keep the virus at bay. After the teenage Nate defeated Apocalypse, he traveled to the last Askani enclave and was welcomed as the Askani'Son, "the Chosen One." After the enclave was attacked, Nate regrouped the surviving Askani into the rebel Clan Chosen. Nate later fell in love with young novitiate Aliya Jenskot, and soon they were married and had a son named Tyler. Following one clash with Stryfe, Aliya was killed and Tyler was captured. Stryfe brainwashed Tyler, and in a subsequent encounter, Nate was forced to shoot Tyler to save his Clanmate Dawnsilk. After Stryfe used a time travel device to flee into the past, arriving in the late 20th century, Nate followed. He arrived in Scotland, years before his birth, and was taken in by geneticist Moira MacTaggert (http://www.marvel.com/universe/MacTaggert%2C_Moira), who taught him how to speak English. He adopted the codename Cable, as a metaphor for being a link between the present in the future. Moira sent him to visit her friend Professor Xavier in the U.S., and en route he encountered the feral mutant Wolverine, aiding him against another agent from his own time, D'Von Kray. Meeting Xavier, Cable helped design the security systems for his mansion in exchange for lessons on how to live in the 20th century.

Cable formed the mercenary group the Wild Pack, later the Six Pack, and took missions from Tolliver, secretly Tyler, which often put them in conflict with Stryfe and his Mutant Liberation Front. Cable made occasional trips back to Earth-4935, at one point returning with a space station he named Graymalkin, after the address of Xavier's mansion. Returning to Earth-4935, Cable discovered that Sam Guthrie, the New Mutant Cannonball, existed into the 23rd century. Cable believed Sam was an immortal mutant, and returned to the present to guide Sam's ascension. With the aid of his mercenary ally and sometime lover Domino, Cable reorganized the New Mutants into the strike team X-Force. Later, Cable's former Six Pack teammate Kane was critically injured in a failed attempt to oppose Stryfe. To save his life, Cable transported Kane to Earth-4935, where he was saved and stayed with the Clan Chosen to recuperate, while Cable returned to the present. During his absence, Stryfe had made an attempt on Xavier's life and sought to frame Cable for the deed. Believing himself the true son of Cyclops, Stryfe kidnapped Cyclops and Jean. Cable came to their rescue, but during the struggle both he and Stryfe fell into a temporal rift. Displaced far into the future, scientists of that time saved Cable's life by using Stryfe's brainwaves. Cable and Kane later returned to the present, but upon arrival Cable discovered that Graymalkin had been destroyed, preventing him from returning home. Stryfe's mind eventually took control of Cable's body, but after being confronted with the truth of his existence he relinquished that control.

When the psionic entity Onslaught hampered all telepathic abilities on Earth, Cable began to succumb to the TO virus. After attacks by Onslaught's herald Post and a mentally-controlled Hulk (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Hulk) weakened Cable further, he found himself allying with his nemesis Apocalypse in order to rescue the young mutant Franklin Richards (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Richards%2C_Franklin) from Onslaught (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Onslaught_%28entity%29), after which Franklin helped Cable suppress the virus. Later, Cable learned from journalist Irene Merryweather of a plot by the enigmatic Hellfire Club to obtain Apocalypse's power. Cable was too late to prevent them from unleashing Apocalypse's Harbinger on the world, but he managed to defeat it with the aid of the Avengers. Realizing that the culmination of his destiny was near, Cable asked Irene to chronicle his life. Soon after, Cable learned that he was one of the Twelve, mutants supposedly destined to usher in a golden age for their kind. Apocalypse intended to use the Twelve to boost his powers to allow him to alter reality and had them captured. Cyclops seemingly sacrificed himself to stop Apocalypse, and Cable joined the X-Men to honor his memory. Subsequently learning that Cyclops was still alive, Cable and Jean tracked him down to Egypt. Jean forcibly removed Apocalypse's essence from Cyclops' body, allowing Cable to seemingly destroy it. His purpose in life apparently complete, Cable returned to his mercenary ways, eventually forming the Underground resistance movement to oppose the clandestine Weapon X Project. A failed infiltration attempt of the Neverland mutant concentration camp saw them captured and the knowledge of Neverland wiped from their minds. Cable later found himself at odds with the mercenary Deadpool (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Deadpool) over the One World Church and their planned use of the Façade Virus to transform the world's people into blue-skinned beings like themselves in the hope of bringing about peace on Earth.


Cable ultimately realized that his body would be unable to contain his vast energies, and so set out to save the world before he died. Rebuilding his space station as the floating city Providence, Cable realized that the only way to force the people's of Earth to see the potential of a unified future was to unite them against the common goal of opposing him. Initially opposed by the super-spy agency S.H.I.E.L.D. and the X-Men, Cable faced the cosmic-powered Silver Surfer (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Silver_Surfer), which caused his powers to burn out rapidly. He used his teleportation matrix to surgically remove the portions of his brain that controlled his mutant abilities, effectively lobotomizing himself. Deadpool then enlisted the aid of the Fixer to merge Cable with a techno-organic embryo, restoring his powers. Cable subsequently reformed X-Force to oppose the ancient evil named the Skornn, which he was able to destroy at the apparent cost of his own life. Cannonball (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Cannonball_%28Sam_Guthrie%29) and his fellow former X-Force member Siryn joined Deadpool on a quest to find Cable, and after finding his life force scattered across alternate realities, they collected it and returned to their own universe to discover that Cable had reverted to an infant when the mutant sorceress the Scarlet Witch (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Scarlet_Witch_%28Wanda_Maximoff%29) reshaped reality. The mutant technosmith Forge was able to restore Cable, who began aging rapidly. Faced with being overwhelmed by his powers, Cable expended them by curing Deadpool of the brain damage he had suffered years earlier at the hands of Weapon X. As he re-aged, Cable's powers returned.

Nightcrawler aka Kurt Wagner

http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/0/0b/Nightcrawler442x350.jpg

http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/b/bc/Inf_physical.gif (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:Inf_physical.gif) Height5'9" Weight161 lbs. EyesShining yellow, no visible pupils HairIndigo http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/6/62/Inf_powers.gif (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:Inf_powers.gif) Powers Nightcrawler is a mutant who can teleport by opening a portal into another dimension, travelling through it via an unconscious direction-finding sense, and returning to his own dimension. When teleporting, Nightcrawler leaves behind a small portion of the atmosphere of the other dimension that escapes with a muffled “bamf” sound and smells of brimstone. On returning, his power automatically displaces any extraneous liquids and gases. Nightcrawler can easily teleport north south along Earth's magnetic lines of force. However, teleporting east west against them or teleporting vertically is more difficult. Under optimal conditions, Nightcrawler can teleport 2 miles east west, 3 miles north south, and 2 miles vertically if he exerts himself. Nightcrawler's momentum is retained when teleporting, so he arrives with the same inertia he left with. He can reduce this by teleporting short distances in the opposite direction.
Nightcrawler has a limited unconscious extrasensory ability that prevents him from teleporting into any area that he cannot see or has not seen in the past, as doing so runs the risk of injury or death by materializing partially or entirely within a solid object.
Through practice, Nightcrawler has increased the mass he can teleport with him, though the limit to the amount of weight he can carry when teleporting and the distance over which he can teleport with such additional loads are unknown. Teleporting with Nightcrawler often leaves a passenger feeling weak and nauseous.
Nightcrawler is also able to cling to solid surfaces via his hands and feet. He can also render himself nigh-invisible in shadows by manipulating the ever-present portal to the dimension he teleports through so as to bend light around himself.
Abilities Nightcrawler is an Olympic-class acrobat thanks to his flexible spine that allows him to perform contortionist-like feats and to go long periods in a semi-crouching position without injury. He is a skilled hand-to-hand combatant and a master at fencing, which he can even perform with his tail, which is strong enough to support his entire body weight. Weapons Nightcrawler formerly wielded a pair of swords. Paraphernalia Nightcrawler occasionally uses an image inducer to disguise his true appearance with a holographic form.


Born in Bavaria to the blue-skinned shapeshifting mutant later known as Mystique (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Mystique), Kurt Wagner was shunned at birth due to his having blue skin, pointed ears, fangs, and a long pointed tail. At the time disguised as the Baroness Wagner, Mystique's true identity was revealed after she gave birth to Kurt, and the pair were chased by an angry mob. Fleeing to the nearby falls, Mystique threw the infant Kurt over the edge and fled. Kurt was saved by his natural father, the enigmatic being known as Azazel (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Azazel_%28mutant%29&action=edit), and given into the care of Margali Szardos (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Szardos%2C_Margali&action=edit), a sorceress and gypsy queen. Margali took baby Kurt to the small Bavarian circus where she worked as a fortune teller as a cover for her activities as a sorceress. Kurt was never legally adopted by anyone, but was raised by all the members of the circus, who had no prejudices against "freaks". Kurt grew up happily in the circus with his two closest friends, Margali's natural children Stefan and Jimaine. Stefan feared that his magical heritage may one day corrupt him, and so he had Kurt promise that if he ever killed without reason for Kurt to stop him. During his formative years Kurt exhibited tremendous natural agility, and quickly became the circus's star acrobat and trapeze artist with audiences assuming that he was simply a normal human dressed in a demon costume. Kurt worked closely with Jimaine, and the pair soon became involved in a romantic relationship.
Years later, the Texas millionaire Amos Jardine, who ran a large circus based in Florida, heard of the circus Kurt worked for and bought it. Jardine intended to move its best acts into his American circus. However, he demanded that Kurt be placed in the circus's freak show, where he was imprisoned against his will and drugged in order to remain complacent. Eventually, a young boy would free Nightcrawler, who would threaten Jardine in order to make him remain a better owner to his circus friends. Nightcrawler then ran away and made his way back to Germany where he discovered that Stefan had gone mad and had brutally slain several members of a lost race of half-human creatures. Kurt found Stefan and fought him, hoping to stop his rampage, but in the course of the struggle Kurt unintentionally broke Stefan's neck. The villagers of the nearby town of Winzeldorf discovered Kurt and assumed him to be a demon who was responsible for the killings. They cornered Kurt in the town and were about to kill him when they were all psionically paralyzed by Professor Charles Xavier (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Professor_X), who had come to recruit Kurt into his team of mutant super-heroes known as the X-Men (http://www.marvel.com/universe/X-Men).
Kurt agreed to join the group, but before they left for America, he and Xavier went to the Bavarian circus so that Kurt could explain to Margali about Stefan's death. However, Margali was not there, and for years she held Kurt responsible for murdering Stefan. Later, she learned the truth and she and Kurt were reconciled. Kurt was also happily reunited with Jimaine, who had been living in the United States under the assumed name of Amanda Sefton (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Magik_%28Amanda_Sefton%29).
After many adventures with the X-Men, including a clash with the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Brotherhood_of_Mutants) during which Kurt first met his mother Mystique (although he didn't know it at the time), discovering his ability to be invisible in shadow, traveling through dimensions with Kitty Pryde (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Pryde%2C_Kitty)'s dragon Lockheed (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Lockheed), and more, Kurt was finally severely wounded during the attack on the underground colony of mutants known as the Morlocks (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Morlocks) by Riptide (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Riptide&action=edit), a member of a team of mutant assassins named the Marauders (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Marauders_%28mutants%29). Kurt was taken to the mutant research facility on Muir Island (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Muir_Island) off the coast of Scotland where he recuperated, but discovered that he could no longer teleport as he originally could, and that teleporting others caused a great strain. After hearing of the apparent "death" of the X-Men in Dallas when the team fought the Adversary (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Adversary), Kurt, Pryde, Rachel Summers (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Marvel_Girl_%28Rachel_Summers%29), Captain Britain (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Captain_Britain_%28Brian_Braddock%29), and Meggan (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Meggan) became the founding members of the British super-team Excalibur (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Excalibur).
After an encounter with the monarch of Latveria (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Latveria), the armored despot Dr. Doom (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Doctor_Doom_%28Victor_von_Doom%29), Kurt's powers were fully restored after Doom used an electromagnetic scrambler in an attempt to disrupt Kurt's teleportating abilities which instead accidentally realigned them.
Following a misunderstanding with Captain Britain over his relationship with Meggan that resulted in a broken leg, Kurt reformed the team of alien bounty hunters known as the Technet (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Technet&action=edit) into a team of costumed superhuman adventurers dubbed the N-Men (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=N-Men&action=edit). Following the Technet's departure, Kurt became Excalibur's leader after the team gained several new members, including the alien Shi'ar (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Shi%27ar) named Cerise (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Cerise_%28Shi%27ar%29&action=edit). Kurt helped Cerise become accustomed to her new life on Earth, which led to the pair forming a romantic relationship. This was to be short-lived, however, after Cerise was found guilty of war crimes and returned to the Shi'ar Empire.
After Captain Britain and Meggan were married, Kurt along with Shadowcat and Colossus (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Colossus_%28Piotr_Rasputin%29) decided it was time to return to the X-Men. Kurt once more served as a dedicated member of the team until after the battle with the mutant despot Apocalypse (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Apocalypse_%28En_Sabah_Nur%29) that resulted in the seemed death of the first X-Man, Cyclops (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Cyclops_%28Scott_Summers%29). Soon after, the ever-devout catholic Kurt left the team to pursue aspirations of becoming a priest. During his studies, Kurt was attacked and wounded by Rax (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Rax&action=edit), the hunter of the group of evolved mutants known as the Neo (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Neo&action=edit). Fleeing, Kurt encountered mutant doctor Cecilia Reyes (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Reyes%2C_Cecilia), and together the two faced the Neo until the X-Men arrived to swing the tide of battle.
Kurt subsequently rejoined the X-Men while continuing his priesthood studies, but soon after took a leave of absence to mourn the death of his friend and team mate, Colossus. When he returned to the X-Men, it was as a fully ordained priest after apparently undertaking a ceremony at St. Michael's Church in Brooklyn which was overseen by Kurt's mentor, Father Whitney. Kurt even took to wearing a priest's collar as part of his X-Men uniform.
http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/d/df/Night228x175.jpg (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:Night228x175.jpg)
Feeling uncomfortable after his longstanding Catholic training as a result of Kurt's feelings of unrest due to molestations by Catholic leaders, which were only exacerbated after the mutant ex-prostitute Stacy X (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Stacy_X) joined the team and made advances towards him which he could not reciprocate due to his vocation. Ultimately it came to light that Kurt had never been fully ordained, rather he had been telepathically coerced into believing so as part of a plan by the Church of Humanity's Supreme Pontiff to bring down the Catholic Church by installing Kurt as the next Pope then revealing to the world that he was "satan". The X-Men subsequently defeated the Church of Humanity and prevented their plan for world domination. Soon after, Kurt found himself unable to resist the compulsion to travel to the Isla des Demonas off the coast of Florida. There, Kurt was manipulated into a ceremony with other teleporters like himself that opened a dimensional portal through which came an army of mutant demons. The X-Men arrived to recover their teammate and clashed with the army. During the battle, Kurt was forcibly removed from the ceremony which collapsed the portal, trapping all present into the other dimension. There, Kurt learned that the leader of the army, Azazel, was his natural father and the father of the other teleporters present. A mutant from biblical times, Azazel sought to use his children's combined powers to return to Earth and enslave humanity. However, Kurt rejected him and, with the aid of his newly-found half-brothers Abyss (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Abyss) and Kiwi Black (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Kiwi_Black&action=edit), Azazel was defeated.
Nightcrawler has since gone on several missions of an occult nature, culminating in a battle against the demonic Hive who was revealed to be responsible for Stefan's rampage. Nightcrawler would be visited by Mephisto (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Mephisto) on his birthday shortly after that event, who told Nightcrawler that a war was brewing, and if Nightcrawler would take Mephisto's side, he could have any reward he wanted. Kurt rejected the offer, however. Recently, Nightcrawler has also met the dimensionally-stranded Nocturne (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Nocturne_%28Age_of_Apocalypse%29), daughter of a Nightcrawler from an alternate timeline, who has taken to calling him "dad."

Bobby Drake discovered his mutant (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Glossary:M#mutant) power to create ice while in his early teens, yet kept his condition hidden from everyone but his parents. Initially, Bobby was unable to stop feeling cold and shivering, but soon managed to keep it under control. When a bully named Rocky Beasely and his friends attacked Bobby and his then-girlfriend, Judy Harmon, the youngster panicked. To save Harmon, Bobby temporarily encased Rocky in ice, thus revealing his abilities for all to see. Believing the boy to be a menace, the townspeople organized a lynch mob. They broke into Bobby's home and overpowered him, but the local sheriff took the teenager into custody for his own protection. Meanwhile, the situation had come to the attention of Professor Charles Xavier (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Professor_X), the telepathic (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Glossary:T#telepathic) mentor of the team of teenage mutant super heroes (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Glossary:S#super_hero) the X-Men (http://www.marvel.com/universe/X-Men). Professor X (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Professor_X) dispatched his first X-Man, Cyclops (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Cyclops_%28Scott_Summers%29), to contact Bobby. Cyclops stole into the jailhouse as planned, but the two began fighting when Bobby refused to accompany him. Caught by the lynch mob, Cyclops and Bobby were about to be hanged when they broke free. Professor X used his mental powers to halt the townspeople in their tracks and erase their memories of Bobby's powers. A grateful Bobby then accepted Xavier's invitation to enroll at his School for Gifted Youngsters (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Xavier_Institute_For_Higher_Learning) and took the codename Iceman. Though initially granting him a snow-like form, Bobby soon learned to increase his degree of cold control resulting in an ice-like, almost transparent form.
Hated and feared by humanity, the X-Men honed their amazing abilities while standing in defense of a world pushed to the brink of genetic war by a handful of mutant terrorists. Iceman, the team's youngest founding member, became known as the comedian of the group. Regardless, he pulled his weight and worked well with rest of the team.
Following a short break-up after believing their mentor was dead, the X-Men reformed with two new members - the magnetism-manipulating Polaris (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Polaris) and the plasma-charged Havok (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Havok). Bobby had a brief romantic relationship with Polaris until she realized that her heart belonged to Havok. Bobby had trouble accepting her decision, which led to increased tension between himself and Havok. Eventually, Bobby quit the team for a short time to sort out his feelings.
Later, when the sentient island-being known as Krakoa (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Krakoa) took Bobby and his team mates captive, Professor X assembled a second team of X-Men to rescue them. Soon after, most of the founding members left the team and Bobby began attending college on a scholarship. Eventually, he helped his former team mate Angel (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Archangel) form the Champions of Los Angeles (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Champions_%28of_Los_Angeles%29). When the Champions disbanded, Bobby went missing, and Angel teamed up with the costumed adventurer Spider-Man (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Spider-Man_%28Peter_Parker%29) to find him. Bobby had been hypnotized by the Champions' enemy Rampage (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Rampage&action=edit) into donning his battle suit, and Angel and Spider-Man were forced to battle him. After Rampage was defeated, Bobby quit his life as a costumed adventurer and returned to college full time to study accounting.
Later, Bobby was contacted by Professor X to assist in rescuing friends and family of the X-Men from the assassin known as Arcade (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Arcade). Along with other former X-Men Banshee (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Banshee), Polaris, and Havok, the ad-hoc team managed to free the hostages and Bobby finally came to accept Polaris' love for Havok.
During a summer break from college Bobby went to visit his former X-Men teammate Beast (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Beast) and soon became involved with the loose-knit collection of costumed heroes known as the Defenders (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Defenders). Along with Beast and Angel, Bobby helped reorganize the team into a more formal and cohesive unit. The Defenders eventually disbanded when several of their members appeared to perish during a climactic battle.
Soon after, Bobby joined the other founding X-Men to form X-Factor (http://www.marvel.com/universe/X-Factor), an organization that intended to seek out and aid other mutants under the pretense of hunting down those perceived menaces to society. During his time with the team, the Asgardian (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Asgard) trickster god (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Glossary:G#god) Loki (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Loki) captured Bobby, hoping to use him to gain control over the Frost Giants (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Frost_Giants&action=edit). Loki enhanced Bobby's powers to such an extent that he was forced to wear a power-dampening belt that was originally created by the subversive organization known as The Right (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=The_Right&action=edit) to cancel out his powers. Once able only to sheathe his own body in a protective coating of ice, Bobby found he could encase the entirety of the Empire State Building. With time, Bobby gained sufficient control over his augmented powers that he was able to stop using the inhibitor belt. Believing he had achieved his full potential, Bobby never attempted to push himself beyond his perceived limits.
When Professor Xavier returned to Earth following an extended absence in outer space, Bobby and the other members of X-Factor rejoined the X-Men. Shortly thereafter, Bobby confronted former Cosmonaut Mikhail Rasputin (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Rasputin%2C_Mikhail), the reality-warping mutant brother of Bobby’s steel-skinned teammate Colossus (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Colossus_%28Piotr_Rasputin%29). Rasputin forced Bobby into a form composed entirely of ice, affording the young mutant a glimpse into his true nature. Subsequently, Bobby began experimenting with his abilities - using ice to add mass to his slight frame, or lift himself high into the air without the benefit of his usual slides.
Months later, the psychically incapacitated mutant telepath Emma Frost took mental possession of Bobby's body. Frost was able to activate the full extent of his powers, using his powers in ways Bobby had not thought possible until she was coaxed back into her own body by Professor X. With Frost's prodding, Iceman later learned to completely transform his body into its full ice state on his own. Frost later also showed Bobby that he could safely revert back to his human form after his ice form's chest had been shattered in battle.
Bobby later took a leave of absence from the X-Men to spend more time with his father who had been injured by the grass roots anti-mutant movement the Friends of Humanity (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Friends_of_Humanity&action=edit). He returned briefly to the X-Men to rescue mutant doctor Cecilia Reyes (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Reyes%2C_Cecilia) during the government-sponsored anti-mutant Operation: Zero Tolerance (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Operation:_Zero_Tolerance&action=edit), after which he returned to his father's side.
Two subsequent events served to shed further light on Iceman's untapped potential. To secure a new host body, the would-be conqueror Apocalypse (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Apocalypse_%28En_Sabah_Nur%29) sought to siphon the awesome energies of "The Twelve (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Twelve)" - mutants of incredible power, destined to alter the course of human history. Among their number was Iceman, who survived the ordeal thanks only to the apparent sacrifice of Cyclops.
A second defining event occurred when the sentient spaceship Prosh (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Prosh&action=edit) escaped the confines of a Celestial (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Celestials) prison, returned to Earth (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Earth) and dispatched a group of disparate beings on a journey through time to uncover the keys to preserving human evolution. Their mission: Save the human race from a threat that might not manifest itself for millions of years. When Prosh reassembled the members of his team in the present, they fought and defeated the enigmatic alien (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Glossary:A#alien) entity known as the Stranger (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Stranger), who sought to control the natural evolution of humans and mutants.
These experiences forced Iceman into the realization that he no longer need fear the evolution of his abilities, and he returned to the X-Men to explore his mutant powers to the fullest. After suffering a chest injury, Bobby was unable to prevent his body from transforming into solid ice due to the manifestation of a secondary mutation.
After the House of M (http://www.marvel.com/universe/House_of_M) incident Iceman was believed to be among the mutants who lost their powers, but this apparent loss of powers was quickly revealed to be a subconscious reaction to the trauma of that reality warp. Since recovering his powers, his ice form has taken on a much more jagged appearance.
Recently, Iceman has been using his powers in innovative ways, including the ability to exist as a sentient gas. He discovered this ability while fighting the Children of the Vault (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Children_of_the_Vault) when they attacked the Mansion, after the fight with the children he joined Rogue (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Rogue) team of X-men.

S.H.I.E.L.D. (Supreme Headquarters International Espionage Law-enforcement Division) is an extra-government intelligence and security organization dedicated to protecting the nations and peoples of Earth from all threats, terrestrial or extraterrestrial. S.H.I.E.L.D. was organized in the early 1960s to meet the threat of the highly technological subversive organization called Hydra (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Hydra). The identities of the organization’s founders, its Executive Board, have never been revealed. S.H.I.E.L.D.’s first known Executive Director was Colonel Nicholas Fury (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Fury%2C_Nick), an ex-World War II commando and C.I.A. operative. S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Supreme Headquarters is the huge mobile Helicarrier (http://www.marvel.com/universe/S.H.I.E.L.D._Helicarrier), but there are also regional offices in all the major cities of the free world and several secret bases in Communist countries. Although most of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s operations are covert, the organization’s existence is known to general public. S.H.I.E.L.D. even maintains public offices in several cities. Only a few of the several thousand S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives active throughout the world are known.

Fury has honed his fighting skills sparring with Captain America, perhaps the world's finest unarmed-combat expert. Fury ingests the Infinity Formula annually, slowing the process of aging in his body. In his youth, Fury learned to fly planes and wing walking. Weapons
Paraphernalia As director of S.H.I.E.L.D., Nick Fury has access to some of the most advanced technology on Earth; he often wears a bulletproof, fireproof uniform of Kevlar and Beta Cloth, and always carries some sort of firearm.

The son of noted World War I pilot Jack Fury and an alleged descendant of one of the men who wore the Phantom Rider mask in the late nineteenth century, Nick Fury was born in New York City's Hell's Kitchen neighborhood in the late 1910s. Following high school, Fury and his longtime friend Red Hargrove joined Finley's Flying Circus, a traveling air show. They both became excellent pilots and stuntmen. When Finley's Flying Circus came to England in 1940, Fury and Hargrove gave parachuting instructions to Lt. Sam Sawyer, an American soldier attached to the British Army. Weeks later, Sawyer was assigned to rescue a British spy in Holland, and he persuaded Fury and Hargrove to accompany him. Their plane was downed in Holland, where they met circus strongman Timothy "Dum-Dum" Dugan (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Dugan%2C_Dum-Dum&action=edit), who joined their rescue mission. In the end, all five safely returned to England. Inspired by the adventure, Dugan joined the British Army, and in early 1941 Fury and Hargrove returned to America to enlist in the U.S. Army.
Fury and Hargrove were soon stationed at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, where Fury rapidly rose to sergeant. On December 7, 1941, Pearl Harbor was attacked by the Japanese and Hargrove was slain. When America declared war on the Axis, Sawyer, now a captain, was reassigned to the U.S. Rangers and instructed to form the First Attack Squad, a special squad of rangers trained in military precision but using individually developed combat techniques. Given virtual carte blanche to handpick Squad members, Sawyer took pains to have Fury appointed field commander. Other recruits included Dugan, black jazz trumpeter Gabe Jones, mechanical expert Izzy Cohen, actor Dino Manelli, lasso-wielding Reb Ralston, and college student Junior Juniper. The Squad members were made honorary commandos in the British army and codenamed "the Howling Commandos," or "Howlers." Other units under Sawyer's command during the war included Sgt. Bull McGiveney's Maulers, Sgt. Bob Jenkins's Missouri Marauders, Jim Morita's Nisei Squadron, and Combat Kelly's Deadly Dozen.

For nearly four years Fury led the Howlers on combat and intelligence missions in virtually every recognized theater of war (and a few more besides). When Juniper was slain in an early mission, he was replaced by eccentric British soldier Pinky Pinkerton; German defector Eric Koenig joined soon afterward, establishing the core membership the Howlers would retain for the remainder of the war, although other soldiers came and went over time. His left eye injured by an enemy grenade, Fury received a Purple Heart but did not leave military service, eventually regaining sight in that eye. The Howlers clashed with many high-ranking German officers, most notably Baron Wolfgang Von Strucker (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Baron_Wolfgang_Von_Strucker&action=edit). The Howlers proved so successful that Strucker was ordered to form a similar unit, the Blitzkrieg Squad, but the Howlers always triumphed over their counterparts. Occasional allies of the Howlers included other Sawyer-commanded units, the Marines of Captain Simon Savage's Leatherneck Raiders, and the costumed adventurers Captain America (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Captain_America_%28Steve_Rogers%29) and Bucky (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Winter_Soldier). At some point, Fury befriended a Canadian soldier named Logan, secretly a superhuman mutant.

Early in the war, separated from the Howlers during a mission in France, Fury was gravely injured by a land mine. Discovered by French partisans, he was taken to a nearby doctor, Professor Berthold Sternberg. Unknown to Fury, Sternberg not only treated Fury's injuries, but also surgically altered Fury so he could withstand inoculation with Sternberg's so-called "Infinity Formula," intended to slow or even halt the human aging process. Fury returned to his unit a week later, still unaware of Sternberg's experiment; however, over the course of the war, exposure to Fury's blood introduced the formula into the other Howlers' bloodstreams as well, causing them to remain unusually vital well into old age. Fury returned to France many times during the war, occasionally on intelligence missions from the Office of Strategic Service.

Weeks after the unit's formation, the Howlers were assigned to destroy a death ray created by Baron Heinrich Zemo (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Baron_Heinrich_Zemo&action=edit), who destroyed it himself rather than risk its falling into enemy hands; Zemo later became a notorious enemy of Captain America. In mid-1942, while stationed in London, Fury fell in love with Lady Pamela Hawley, a British noblewoman serving in a London ambulance unit. In July of that same year, the Howlers ventured into Romania and met the infamous vampire Dracula (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Dracula), who proved as averse to Nazis as they were. However, the vampiric Nazi agent Baron Blood would later capture the Howlers, though his plans fell apart when an American soldier that he vampirized turned against him. In late 1942, the Howlers were assigned to North Africa, where they saw action alongside nomad leader Desert Hawk and his daughter Sheila, Captain Starr and the Marines of Item Company, and infantryman Combat Casey, among others.

In 1943, Fury and Dugan rescued Pam Hawley from the German sorcerer Viscount Krowler, unwittingly intervening in a time-transcending clash between the demonic Dormammu (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Dormammu) and future Sorcerer Supreme Doctor Strange (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Doctor_Strange_%28Stephen_Strange%29), who removed the soldiers' memories of the proceedings. The Howlers faced more magic weeks later when they teamed with adventurous thief Jean Luc LeBeau to keep Baron Strucker from obtaining the time-traveling gem called the Momentary Princess. On a more prosaic note, Fury at last decided to propose marriage to Hawley, but she perished tragically during a London air raid, killed by the raid's final bomb as she was helping the wounded. Months later, when Fury was home on leave, his brother Jake, jealous of Nick's fame, was abducted by the Nazi Colonel Klaue. Nick freed Jake but was captured himself, and Jake helped the Howlers rescue Nick. Following these events, Jake enlisted in the army; he soon regretted his choice, and his resentment of Nick grew.

At some point the Nazi mastermind Red Skull (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Red_Skull_%28Johann_Shmidt%29) infiltrated Fury's base in disguise, though circumstances foiled his mission. In April 1944, the Howlers fought the Skull directly alongside Captain America and Bucky, rescuing an American industrialist. Weeks later, the Howlers pursued Baron Strucker to the German village of Gruenstadt, where they saw him lead a Nazi S.S. Squad in massacring Gruenstadt's entire population. Outraged, the Howlers gunned down Strucker's soldiers to the last man, although Strucker himself escaped. Fury did not know it at the time, but Strucker destroyed Gruenstadt to conceal the nearby discovery of a party of Gnobians, extraterrestrials with vastly advanced technology. After the massacre, Strucker mindlinked with the Gnobian leader, gaining extensive alien knowledge--though he later disputed this--while the Gnobians were infected with his own twisted personality.

On June 6, 1944, a.k.a. D-Day, the Howlers were part of the Allied invasion of Nazi-held France. In October they teamed with Captain America and Bucky to face a far different invasion, helping the contemporary Sorcerer Supreme, the Ancient One, against an alliance between Dormammu and the Red Skull; once more, sorcery removed memories of Dormammu from Fury and company. Returning to more conventional warfare, Fury and Cap destroyed one of the Red Skull's biochemical warfare camps weeks later, freeing airman Michael Kramer and other prisoners. The Howlers were also among the Allied forces who halted German advances in the Battle of the Bulge in the last days of 1944. In 1945, the Howlers had yet another brush with the unworldly in Berlin, where centuries-old sorcerer Algernon Crowe was creating zombie soldiers for the Nazis. The Howlers incapacitated the zombies and torched Crowe's facility, believing Crowe to be dead.

When the war finally ended in August 1945, Fury led the Howlers on European "mop-up" missions against remaining Axis operatives. It was during this period that the Howlers shut down the death camp laboratories of Nathaniel Essex, a.k.a. Mister Sinister (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Mister_Sinister). Fury was then reassigned to Okinawa, Japan to shut down remnants there, while the other Howlers returned to civilian life.

Fury was soon recruited by the O.S.S. full-time. Working with agents of the British MI-5, he was sent after Colonel Ishii, a renegade Japanese scientist with a cache of bio-weapons; Fury captured Ishii, but was the mission's only survivor. In 1946, Fury aged sixty years in minutes due to long-term effects of Sternberg's Infinity Formula; Sternberg, having anticipated this, had mailed Fury a mutated version of the formula, and Fury immediately inoculated himself with it, restoring his youth. However, the effect lasted only one year, and Sternberg began extorting money from Fury in exchange for a yearly supply of the formula. Unable to locate Sternberg, Fury acquiesced and bought doses from him for the next several decades.

When the O.S.S. disbanded in 1947, Fury was reassigned to Army Intelligence and eventually saw action in the Korean War, which began in 1950; at some point, Fury re-formed the Howling Commandos, who re-enlisted for a special mission to blow up a missile base behind enemy lines. At the successful close of this mission, Fury was promoted to second lieutenant and soon afterward transferred to the Central Intelligence Agency. In this capacity, he led a unit known as Team Valkyrie until the war's end in 1953. At some point in the late 1950s or early 1960s, Fury worked with the super-team called the First Line and was particularly impressed by their leader, Yankee Clipper. By 1963, Fury was a C.I.A. colonel in charge of a program involving telepathic operatives, one of whom, Theresa Bellwether, was murdered as part of a defense operation called Project: About Face. The ultimate fate of Fury's program is unrevealed, but by 1967 he was active in the Vietnam War, where he again re-formed the Howling Commandos as volunteers on special assignment; a year later, he underwent training in the Green Beret Special Forces, which he followed up with Black Beret training in 1973. Little else is known of Fury's C.I.A. activities, although during this period he frequently worked with his wartime comrade Logan, now a Canadian intelligence operative. Fury's tactics and talents earned him many rivals, including a deadly intelligence operative known only as the Spook.

In the early 1980s, Fury investigated a reorganized First Line and aided them against subterranean invaders; following his report, he was recommended for "Project S.H.I.E.L.D.," a government operation still many years from completion. Later, Fury went undercover in Macao to investigate Amber D'Alexis, who ran an espionage and weapons smuggling ring out of her casino; Fury romanced D'Alexis to win her confidence, only to learn that she was romantically involved with his brother Jake, now a biophysics researcher. Fury ultimately took D'Alexis into custody, and Jake's resentment turned into hatred. A few years later, Fury re-formed the Howling Commandos at least once more, for a mission with pilot Ben Grimm (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Thing_%28Benjamin_Grimm%29). During the same time frame, Fury worked with two brilliant scientists, Reed Richards (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Reed_Richards) and Tony Stark (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Tony_Stark); unknown to Fury, both men were involved in Project S.H.I.E.L.D., and Jake Fury soon became a Stark employee.

In recent years, not long after the debut of the Fantastic Four, Nick Fury aided the team against the subversive Hate-Monger. Following this mission, Fury was assigned to investigate a spy at Stark International, unaware that Stark himself was involved in the new international espionage unit known as S.H.I.E.L.D. (http://www.marvel.com/universe/S.H.I.E.L.D.) (Supreme Headquarters International Espionage Law-enforcement Division), the finalized version of Project: S.H.I.E.L.D., whose director, Colonel Rick Stoner, had recently been slain by the high-tech terrorists Hydra (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Hydra). Fury was dismayed to discover that the spy was his brother Jake, who had defected to Hydra. Confronting his brother, Fury was shot in the left eye, exacerbating his old war injury. Though his operations were exposed, Jake escaped, and Nick, his left eye now almost totally useless, began wearing an eyepatch. Shortly afterward, a mission in Russia again teamed him with Logan, now the Canadian super-agent Wolverine (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Wolverine_%28James_Howlett%29).

Returning to America, Fury was, at Stark's recommendation, recruited to head S.H.I.E.L.D., which was facing renewed attacks from Hydra. Fury was dubious of his own qualifications but accepted the role, soon recruiting Dum-Dum Dugan, who became his second-in-command, as well as Gabe Jones and Eric Koenig. Fury led S.H.I.E.L.D. against Hydra, A.I.M. (http://www.marvel.com/universe/A.I.M.), the Druid (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Druid), and other terrorists; never one to risk subordinates' lives on jobs he could do himself, Fury continued to act as a field agent. His right-hand man was Jasper Sitwell, a loyal administrator whose dedication to the rules irked Fury almost as much as it grounded him, while much of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s developing technology was overseen by Sidney "the Gaffer" Levine, a brilliant inventor and, like Fury, a veteran of a wartime unit, in his case the high-tech Skywolves. During his early clashes with Hydra, Fury fell in love with Laura Brown, daughter of the organization's supposed leader, the Imperial Hydra; when the Imperial Hydra was slain in one clash, Fury believed Hydra was on its last legs, but its creed of "cut off one arm and another shall take its place" would soon prove itself true. When Fury's relationship with Brown ended, he began romancing fellow agent Contessa Valentina de Fontaine (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Contessa_Valentina_de_Fontaine&action=edit).
Mere months after joining S.H.I.E.L.D., Fury was reunited with his wartime friend Captain America, who had been revived from decades of suspended animation by the Avengers. Ironically, Fury faced a more unhappy reunion when he learned that Hydra, founded in the closing days of World War II, was secretly led by none other than Baron Strucker, who tried to blackmail the world with a so-called Death-Spore bomb; however, Fury located the bomb and sealed it in Hydra's domed island base, where it apparently killed only Strucker and his men. On the heels of this victory, Fury was almost driven mad when he became a pawn in a game between Latverian (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Latveria) dictator Doctor Doom (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Doctor_Doom_%28Victor_von_Doom%29) and his robot opponent, the Prime Mover. In the course of the game, S.H.I.E.L.D. clashed with a robot of the megalomaniacal Yellow Claw (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Yellow_Claw&action=edit), and when the true Claw's nemesis, FBI agent Jimmy Woo, became involved in the proceedings, Fury recruited him for S.H.I.E.L.D.

Another foe resurfaced when Jake Fury, empowered by the mysterious Zodiac Key, attacked S.H.I.E.L.D. as Scorpio; eventually exposed, Scorpio clashed with Fury repeatedly until his apparent death, although his consciousness survived in an android body. A final bit of Fury's past was laid to rest when Professor Sternberg was slain by criminal Steel Harris, who attempted to up the extortion on Fury's supply of the Infinity Formula; however, with the help of de la Fontaine, Fury defeated Steel and obtained the secrets of the Infinity Formula for himself.

As S.H.I.E.L.D. director, Fury fought various superhuman foes alongside New York's super heroes, many of whom he befriended. When the Thing and a handful of Avengers (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Avengers) organized a floating poker game, Fury became a regular participant; at one such game he renewed his friendship with Wolverine, now a member of the mutant X-Men. Despite his respect for super heroes, Fury recognized them as potential loose cannons, and S.H.I.E.L.D. formed more than one contingency plan against them. For years, Fury balanced his duties against his friendships, not always to his own satisfaction. As S.H.I.E.L.D.'s influence spread, Fury became concerned about internal corruption and worked with ex-agent Mockingbird (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Mockingbird) to expose several criminal operations. Fury became the target of the seven-section organization the Sept, who attacked S.H.I.E.L.D.'s airborne Helicarrier base, overthrew a small Latin American government, attacked Fury and his men in Egypt, and were tracked to Hong Kong, where Fury unmasked their leader, the One, as the true Yellow Claw. A few years later, while investigating use of the Zodiac Key (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Zodiac_Key), Fury was stunned to meet a new Scorpio (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Scorpio) named Mikel Fury, who claimed to be Jake Fury's son by Amber D'Alexis. Working alongside Wolverine, Fury shut down D'Alexis's latest criminal operation, but D'Alexis herself held Fury at gunpoint and revealed that Nick, not Jake, was Mikel's father. D'Alexis was defeated by Wolverine shortly afterward, and Fury took Mikel into S.H.I.E.L.D. custody, although he soon escaped.

Soon afterward, Fury learned that S.H.I.E.L.D. had been infiltrated by artificial life-forms called Deltites, who deceived most of Fury's agents, including de la Fontaine, into turning against him. Fury and a handful of loyal agents eventually defeated the Deltites, but not before almost all remaining S.H.I.E.L.D. agents were seemingly slain; unknown to Fury, the Deltites had been directed by Baron Strucker, alive after all, who kept the supposedly dead agents in stasis. S.H.I.E.L.D. was formally disbanded, and Fury traveled the world to close S.H.I.E.L.D.'s bases and destroy its most dangerous technology. Physically and emotionally exhausted, Fury briefly retired in the company of agent Kate Neville (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Kate_Neville&action=edit), who became his lover.

Months later, Fury left retirement to join de la Fontaine, Neville, and others against the Death's Head Guard, Gnobians altered by former Nazi geneticist Arnim Zola (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Arnim_Zola&action=edit) and driven by Strucker's hatred of Fury. The Guard slew hundreds of American agents before Fury managed to break through their programming, after which they committed mass suicide; Strucker later implied that the aliens were in fact creations of Hydra, but this claim seems dubious given the Gnobians' wartime activities. Soon afterward, a new S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate), designed to be less vulnerable to corruption, was formed, and Fury became its director. Under Fury, the new S.H.I.E.L.D. renewed ties with the superhuman community and faced enemies both new and old, including Algernon Crowe, one of the leaders of Mys-Tech, which combined science and magic in pursuit of conquest. Investigating Mys-Tech's greatest threat, the reality-altering Un-Earth, Fury was slain by Crowe, only to be resurrected when American and British super heroes reversed time to defeat Mys-Tech. Fury later teamed with the United Kingdom's Super-Soldiers against Hydra's Warlord Huang Zhu in the Savage Land.

Despite the new S.H.I.E.L.D.'s early successes, tragedy again struck when Hydra massacred hundreds of new S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, but Hydra inadvertently provided replacements when Fury discovered the comatose agents believed slain by the Deltites. Learning of Strucker's survival, Fury again confronted his nemesis and defeated him, although Strucker eluded capture. Reunited with his longtime agents and friends, Fury set about expanding S.H.I.E.L.D., which eventually neared the size and complexity of its predecessor. Fury even made peace with his son Mikel, whom he recruited as an agent to help him when internal strife in Hydra fueled subversive activity in his home neighborhood of Hell's Kitchen.

Sometime later, Fury received a coded distress message from someone called Fallen Angel, who claimed to be Rick Stoner, long believed dead. Commissioning a specialized LMD (Life Model Decoy) android duplicate from Tony Stark, Fury left the duplicate in his place and traced the signal to Project: Backslide, an abandoned S.H.I.E.L.D. experiment, only to be pulled into a pocket dimension with Fallen Angel, who, regardless of his true identity, died shortly afterward, leaving Fury stranded for months. Unknown to Fury, his LMD duplicate captured and tried to rehabilitate the killer vigilante Punisher (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Punisher_%28Frank_Castle%29); however, the Spook, Fury's longtime rival, brainwashed the Punisher into assassinating the LMD, believed by all to be Fury. Meanwhile, Fury's subconscious had remade the pocket dimension into a duplicate of wartime Europe, where he relived past Howlers missions. He regained his senses through the arrival of Sharon Carter, an agent of the prior S.H.I.E.L.D., long thought dead; although Carter had come seeking vengeance on Fury, she ultimately helped him return to Earth. Fury briefly stepped down from S.H.I.E.L.D. directorship, leaving Carter to succeed him, but he soon returned, driving himself harder than ever. One of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s most serious setbacks came when the Helicarrier was hijacked by the Red Skull, who joined forces with the Hate-Monger (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Hate-Monger) in an effort to spread hatred across the world, but the villains were defeated by Fury, Captain America, and their fellow wartime veteran, Namor the Sub-Mariner (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Sub-Mariner).


Ultimately, despite Fury's best efforts, the second incarnation of S.H.I.E.L.D. has proven no more immune to corruption than the first, and Fury has grown dubious of some of the agency's more inhumane operations, such as the so-called Deathlok project. Fury even briefly lost command of S.H.I.E.L.D., being demoted to a desk job. Despite ending the threat of former Hydra agent Rudy Gargarin on Napoleon Island, Fury had to struggle to regain his position. Moreover, as superhuman incidents become more widespread and devastating, Fury, despite his efforts to steer government attention away from such allies as Spider-Man (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Spider-Man_%28Peter_Parker%29) and Daredevil (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Daredevil_%28Matthew_Murdock%29), has found himself at odds with the Fantastic Four (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Fantastic_Four), the X-Men (http://www.marvel.com/universe/X-Men), and even his old friends Captain America and Wolverine, whom he has been reduced to manipulating on more than one mission, including a recent foray into Latveria that left hard feelings all around. It remains to be seen how long Fury can tread the line between conflicting loyalties.

http://www.marvel.com/globals/spacer.gifSTEPHEN KING BREAKS NEW GROUND AT MARVEL WITH ORIGINAL COMIC SERIES BASED ON HIS EPIC THE DARK TOWER
New Comic Series Exploring the Origin of the Notorious Gunslinger Character Marks First Time Stephen King Has Produced Original Content for the Comic Book Format.

NEW YORK – World Fantasy Award-winning writer Stephen King, long acknowledged as the master of modern horror, and Marvel Comics join forces this spring to launch a ground-breaking new comic book series adapted from King's magnum opus, The Dark Tower.
The comic series will mark the first time Stephen King has produced original content for an ongoing comic book project. The series will expand the saga of King's epic hero, Roland Deschain, whose quest to save the Dark Tower is captured in seven best-selling novels published over the course of twenty-five years. King's unparalleled storytelling power will inform new stories that delve into the life and times of the young Roland, revealing the trials and conflicts that lead to the burden of destiny he must assume as a man, the last Gunslinger from a world that has moved on. The comics will work in conjunction with the novels, further supplementing and defining the saga's mythology under the direction of the acclaimed author himself.
"As a lifelong fan of Marvel comic books, and as an adult reader who's seen comics "come of age" and take their rightful place in the world of fantasy and science fiction, I'm excited to be a part of Roland's new incarnation," said Stephen King.
The series will be illustrated by Eisner-award winning artist Jae Lee.
King continued, "I love Jae Lee's work, and I think this is going to be a dynamite partnership. Frankly, I can't wait."
Watch for more info as it becomes available at http://www.marvel.com/darktower (http://www.marvel.com/darktower)
"Stephen King is a true literary master. We are thrilled beyond words to have him join Marvel on this exciting project. The millions of Dark Tower fans are in for a real treat, and I'm sure many more will soon be hooked on this epic series through this historic comic project," said Joe Quesada, Marvel Entertainment's Editor-In-Chief and Chief Creative Officer, Publishing.
"The level of excitement and talent that Stephen King brings to the world of comic books is electrifying. We're proud and honored to be a part of what promises to be an industry-defining event," said Dan Buckley, Publisher and Chief Operating Officer of Marvel Entertainment, Publishing.

He can augment his strength to incalculable levels, and is almost totally indestructible.

He is immune to temperature extremes and most radiation, and can survive in vacuum environments such as outer space and hyperspace. He can analyze and manipulate matter and energy, and restructure or animate matter at will, even transmuting elements. He can heal living beings (though he cannot raise the dead), and has proven capable of revitalizing or evolving organic life on a planet wide scale. He can alter the size of himself or of other matter, cast illusions, fire energy blasts, form and manipulate energy constructs, manipulate gravity, absorb and discharge most forms of energy, and phase through solid matter. His senses enable him to detect objects and energies light years away, and to perceive matter and energy in subatomic detail; he can even see through time, and with concentration can achieve limited perception of past and future events in his general vicinity. The Surfer has demonstrated limited telepathic ability on occasion, and has proven able to influence human emotion and sensation. Abilities Unrevealed Weapons Paraphernalia The Surfer's board is composed of the same impervious, cosmic-powered silvery material as its master's skin, and is mentally linked to the Surfer; it moves in response to his thoughts, even when he is not in physical contact with it. The board is almost totally indestructible, but on those rare occasions where it has been damaged or destroyed, the Surfer has been able to repair or even re-create it. The Surfer can attack opponents remotely by directing the board against them, and the board is capable of absorbing and imprisoning other beings, at least temporarily.


At Home On Zenn-La

One of the noblest and most tormented cosmic entities in the universe, the Silver Surfer treasures freedom above all else, but has often sacrificed his liberty for the greater good. He was born Norrin Radd on the planet Zenn-La, part of an extremely long-lived and technologically advanced humanoid race which had created a worldwide utopia devoid of crime, disease, hunger, poverty, and want of any kind. Norrin's mother Elmar, ill-suited to this stifling environment, eventually killed herself. Urged on by his atypically ambitious father Jartran, Norrin was raised as a grimly intellectual youth, encouraged to seek knowledge, advancement, and achievement rather than the aimless hedonism which had come to dominate Zenn-Lavian society. However, a disgraced Jartran would later commit suicide himself after he was accused of idea theft (though not before he had taken a new lover and fathered another son, Fennan, unknown to Norrin). Despite his lifelong love, Shalla-Bal, Norrin grew into a restless soul who longed for challenge and struggle, immersing himself in histories of Zenn-La's adventurous ancient past.

To Save A World

Norrin's life changed forever when a menacing alien spacecraft pierced Zenn-La's long-neglected defense systems. Convincing a Council of Scientists member to provide him with a spaceship, Radd soon confronted the invader, Galactus (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Galactus), who intended to consume Zenn-La. Radd offered to become his herald and seek out new worlds for him in exchange for Galactus sparing Zenn-La. Galactus agreed, transforming Radd into a silver-skinned, cosmic-powered super-being patterned after an adolescent fantasy plucked from Norrin's memories. Known thereafter as the Silver Surfer because of the silvery flying board he rode, Radd departed Zenn-La with Galactus.
[edit (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Template:Bio&action=edit&section=3)]
The Alien and the Girl

The Surfer served Galactus well for many years, enjoying exploring the wonders of the universe; however, it became increasingly difficult for Radd to find energy-rich worlds devoid of sentient life. Over time, Galactus subtly altered the Surfer's mind, submerging Radd's emotions and repressing past memories. As a result, the Surfer became much more willing to lead Galactus to inhabited worlds, such as Earth. Locating Earth despite Uatu The Watcher's (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Uatu_The_Watcher) covert attempts to ward him off, the Surfer caused widespread panic and fought the Fantastic Four (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Fantastic_Four). During this conflict, the Surfer met blind sculptress Alicia Masters (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Masters%2C_Alicia), who sensed his inner nobility and pleaded with him to spare humanity. His long-dormant emotions stirred by what Alicia taught him of beauty and spirit, the Surfer turned on Galactus and helped fight him off long enough for Uatu and the Fantastic Four to secure the Ultimate Nullifier: a cosmic doomsday weapon which forced Galactus to withdraw. However, Galactus punished the Surfer by trapping him on Earth, erecting an energy barrier around the planet that was uniquely attuned to the Surfer.
[edit (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Template:Bio&action=edit&section=4)]
Hard Lessons

The Surfer became a melancholy global wanderer, trying to adjust to his new home and understand its people. After a pointless skirmish with Alicia's jealous boyfriend, the Thing (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Thing_%28Benjamin_Grimm%29), the Surfer was befriended and betrayed by Latverian tyrant Doctor Doom (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Doctor_Doom_%28Victor_von_Doom%29), who imprisoned Radd and stole the Surfer's power for himself; but Doom lost his new might when he collided with Galactus' barrier, and the Surfer's powers were restored. Increasingly pessimistic about humanity, the Surfer tried to befriend fellow outcast the Hulk (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Hulk_%28Bruce_Banner%29), but the man-monster's violent temper drove him away. Next, the Surfer took pity on the Mad Thinker's (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Mad_Thinker) abandoned sentient computer Quasimodo (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Quasimodo) and gave it humanoid form, but he was forced to petrify his new creation after it proved to be criminally insane. Convinced by now that humanity was a savage race that could only survive and evolve if the planet were united against a common foe, the Surfer decided to become that foe. He terrorized the world with his cosmic powers until the U.S. military struck him down with an experimental power-draining "Sonic Shark" missile, based on technology developed by the FF's Reed Richards (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Mister_Fantastic). Humbled by the incident and shown the error of his ways by the FF, the Surfer resumed his peaceful wanderings. His powers were diminished, though they gradually returned to their original levels.
[edit (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Template:Bio&action=edit&section=5)]
New Friends, New Foes, and Past Mistakes

Aided by the Fantastic Four, the Surfer resisted attempts by Galactus to regain his services. He also faced foes such as the alien Badoon (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Badoon&action=edit), the demonic Mephisto (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Mephisto) (who became obsessed with breaking the Surfer's spirit), Asgardian trickster god Loki (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Loki) (who manipulated the Surfer into battling his brother Thor (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Thor_%28Thor_Odinson%29)), the alternate-future Overlord, mad scientist Ludwig von Frankenstein, the ghostly Flying Dutchman, rogue Zenn-Lavian scientist Yarro Gort (who coveted Shalla-Bal for himself and died trying to destroy the Surfer), the occultist Warlock Prime, the monstrous Abomination (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Abomination), and the robotic Doomsday Man (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Doomsday_Man_%28robot%29&action=edit). One of the Surfer's few true friends during these early adventures was physicist Al B. Harper, who sacrificed his life to help the Surfer save the world from the enigmatic Stranger (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Stranger); the Surfer lit an eternal flame at Harper's grave in memory of his heroism. Several times during this period, the Surfer was briefly reunited with Shalla-Bal, who was used as an unwilling pawn against the Surfer by foes such as Mephisto and Gort; but circumstances always forced the lovers apart, sending Shalla Bal home each time. Increasingly frustrated by his situation and disgusted by man's inhumanity to man, the Surfer, secretly influenced by Psycho-Man (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Psycho-Man), became more hostile, battling Spider-Man (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Spider-Man_%28Peter_Parker%29), Human Torch (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Human_Torch_%28Johnny_Storm%29), S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Inhumans (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Inhumans) in a series of misunderstandings and misadventures. But when Doctor Doom temporarily usurped the power of Galactus, the Surfer helped defeat the villain.
[edit (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Template:Bio&action=edit&section=6)]
Defending His New Home

The Surfer formed a temporary alliance with the Hulk and Namor the Sub-Mariner (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Sub-Mariner) to oppose a new weather technology that threatened to destroy the world; these "Titans Three" completed their mission despite the misguided interference of the Avengers (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Avengers), and even toppled a minor hostile dictator along the way. Namor, Hulk and Doctor Strange (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Doctor_Strange_%28Stephen_Strange%29) soon formed a more enduring heroic alliance as the Defenders (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Defenders) - saving the world from Yandroth (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Yandroth&action=edit). They tried to recruit the Surfer for their first mission, but he was recovering from a collision with Galactus' barrier at the time. After aiding Thor against Loki‘s minion Durok the Demolisher, the Surfer helped the Fantastic Four defeat Galactus' latest herald, the Air-Walker android (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Air-Walker_%28android%29&action=edit), and the Fantastic Four in turn protected the Surfer by trapping Galactus in the Negative Zone (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Negative_Zone). The Surfer soon fell under the mental sway of Calizuma and his Warrior Wizards, agents of the demonic Undying Ones. Freed from their influence by the Defenders, the Surfer helped defeat the wizards and became one of the Defenders' earliest recruits, aiding the team against foes such as the Nameless One, Attuma (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Attuma) and the Red Ghost (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Red_Ghost). At one point, a quest to restore the petrified Black Knight (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Black_Knight_%28Dane_Whitman%29) led the Defenders into a conflict with the Avengers (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Avengers), orchestrated by Loki and Dormammu (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Dormammu). In the end, the villains were defeated and the two super-teams parted as friends, though the restless Surfer soon left the active Defenders ranks.
[edit (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Template:Bio&action=edit&section=7)]
Return to Zenn-La

Tricked into helping Doctor Doom create the deadly Doomsman android, the Surfer helped the Fantastic Four neutralize this menace, then clashed with the vampire lord Dracula (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Dracula). Later, the Surfer was present at an Avengers-Defenders gathering ineffectually attacked by mind-controlled heroine Jewel ([[Jones, Jessica|Jessica Jones). After another clash with the Hulk, the Surfer aided the Defenders against the demonic Six-Fingered Hand and their hellish masters, including Mephisto. After aiding the Avengers against the Molecule Man (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Molecule_Man), declining an offer of Avengers membership, attending the funeral of seemingly deceased Defenders teammates Nighthawk (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Nighthawk_%28Kyle_Richmond%29) and Valkyrie (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Valkyrie), and participating in another Avengers-Defenders clash orchestrated by alien menaces Nebulon and Supernalia, the Surfer finally pierced Galactus' barrier with the aid of Reed Richards and escaped Earth. But he discovered Zenn-La had been devastated by a vengeful Galactus, barely capable of supporting life. Worse yet, Shalla-Bal had been abducted back to Earth by Mephisto. Though it meant trapping himself on Earth again (since Reed's escape method would work only once), the Surfer returned to Earth and defeated Mephisto, who sent Shalla-Bal back to Zenn-La, though not before the Surfer endowed her with a portion of his cosmic power which she used to revitalize their ravaged homeworld.
[edit (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Template:Bio&action=edit&section=8)]
Defenders No More

The Surfer helped the Defenders liberate the Squadron Supreme (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Squadron_Supreme_%28Earth-712%29)’s alternate Earth (Earth-S, Earth-712 (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Earth-712)) from the control of the demonic Null the Living Darkness (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Null_the_Living_Darkness&action=edit), then celebrated the Hulk's brief public acceptance after gaining Bruce Banner's intellect. But the Surfer and his fellow senior Defenders - Hulk, Namor and Strange - were tricked into disbanding after the alien Tribunal (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Living_Tribunal) convinced them their continued teamwork was fated to cause Earth's doom. The Surfer, meanwhile, helped the Fantastic Four defeat the cosmic-powered Tyros (formerly Galactus' herald Terrax (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Terrax)) and locate a missing Reed Richards, helped Earth's heroes neutralize the threat of the near-omnipotent Beyonder (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Maker), and teamed with the Molecule Man to undo much of the damage done to Earth by the Beyonder.
[edit (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Template:Bio&action=edit&section=9)]
The Spaceways Reopened

Piercing Galactus' barrier again (this time by using the Thing's simple suggestion of trying to pass through it without his surfboard), the Surfer made peace with Galactus by rescuing his current herald Nova (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Nova_%28Frankie_Raye%29) from the Skrulls (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Skrulls), after which Galactus finally ended the Surfer's long exile. Radd revisited his homeworld, but Shalla-Bal had become empress of the rejuvenated Zenn-La and was not free to renew their romance. The Surfer became embroiled in fresh hostilities between the interstellar Kree (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Kree) and Skrull empires, and intervened in a series of plots by the Elders of the Universe (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Elders_of_the_Universe), who planned to destroy Galactus, and the universe with him-in order to become the supreme powers of a new universe. The Surfer thwarted the Elders with the aid of his new love interest Mantis (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Mantis), the Earth-born cosmic heroine also known as the Celestial Madonna, but she seemingly died in the process; though she would later return, she never fully renewed her romance with the Surfer. Romantic sparks developed between Nova and the Surfer, whose influence gradually led Nova to question the morality of her role as a herald. Galactus finally replaced her with the far more ruthless Morg (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Morg&action=edit), who killed Nova during a conflict with the Surfer and most of the other ex-heralds.
[edit (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Template:Bio&action=edit&section=10)]
Cosmic Adventures and Mysteries Galore

The Surfer has repeatedly battled space-born menaces such as Reptyl, Ego the Living Planet (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Ego), Super-Skrull (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Super-Skrull), Midnight Sun (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Midnight_Sun&action=edit), Nebula (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Nebula), Galactus' dark counterpart Tyrant-and, perhaps most notably, Thanos (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Thanos), a death (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Death_%28embodiment%29)-worshipping rogue Eternal (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Eternal&action=edit) who wiped out half the life in the universe using the omnipotent Infinity Gauntlet (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Infinity_Gauntlet) before the Surfer teamed with a reborn Adam Warlock (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Warlock%2C_Adam) and many other heroes to seize and dismantle the gauntlet after undoing its effects. The Surfer has been allied with cosmic adventurers such as Jack of Hearts (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Jack_of_Hearts), Ganymede (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Ganymede&action=edit), Genis-Vell and Warlock’s Infinity Watch (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Infinity_Watch), who helped the Surfer restore Shalla-Bal to life after she sacrificed herself to save Zenn-La from the supremely powerful Great One (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Great_One&action=edit). The Surfer also partnered with Quasar (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Quasar_%28Wendell_Vaughn%29), Beta Ray Bill (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Beta_Ray_Bill), Morfex (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Morfex&action=edit), and Xenith (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Xenith&action=edit) to form the short-lived Star Masters (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Star_Masters) team, and began participating in occasional Defenders reunions - the Tribunal's hoax having since been exposed. During his travels, the Surfer also met his long-lost brother Fennan. However, Zenn-La and its people later seemingly vanished, and the Surfer was led to believe that his homeworld had been destroyed long ago by the mysterious Other (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Other&action=edit), and that the Zenn-Lavian world and people he had encountered since becoming the Surfer were mere illusions. While this seems highly unlikely, Zenn-La's bizarre disappearance remains unexplained.
[edit (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Template:Bio&action=edit&section=11)]
Death of Galactus/Rebirth of the Defenders

Losing his capacity for emotion again, the Surfer returned to Earth, eventually regaining his personality during a time travel adventure and sharing a romance with Alicia Masters. They ultimately parted as friends after many adventures together, one of which pitted them against Galactus' new herald Red Shift (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Red_Shift) and led to the temporary destruction of Galactus himself. When a Gaea-powered curse from a dying Yandroth (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Yandroth&action=edit) mystically forced Surfer, Namor, Hulk and Strange to assemble in response to any and all threats to the Earth, the ongoing stress of this situation coupled with the subtle emotional influence of the curse itself gradually drove the four senior Defenders mad, and they attempted to rule the world as the Order in the belief that this was the most efficient way to protect the planet. Their fellow Defenders - Hellcat (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Hellcat), Nighthawk, Valkyrie, and Clea (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Clea) - teamed with other heroes-including Ardina (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Ardina&action=edit), a cosmic-powered woman whom they mystically created from a portion of the Surfer's own energy-to oppose the Order and return them to their senses, just in time to prevent the curse from rendering a resurrected Yandroth all-powerful.
[edit (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Template:Bio&action=edit&section=12)]
Marduk Redux

More recently, fearing a prophesied apocalypse, the Surfer worked with the alien Annunaki race to gather and protect some of Earth's most extraordinarily gifted children. In the end, one of those children, Ellie Waters, saved Earth from the godlike Marduk (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Marduk&action=edit) entity, preventing the apocalypse and reordering reality as if the Marduk crisis had never happened; though Ellie apparently retains her memories of these events. The Surfer has resumed his interstellar wanderings, but remains ready to aid his adopted homeworld should Earth ever need him.
[edit (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Template:Bio&action=edit&section=13)]
Gladiators, Slugs, and Old Friends

During his travels, Surfer was captured by the Planet Sakaar Empire and planted with an obedience slug to ensure he remained loyal to them. Fighting as a gladiator, the Surfer was finally forced to face the Hulk. The Hulk had viewed Surfer as a friend, and was enraged when the Surfer mercilessly attacked. Destroying the obedience slug, the Hulk nearly killed the Surfer before being forced to stop. The Hulk and several other slaves and gladiators were freed when the Surfer used the Power Cosmic to remove their own obedience slugs and give them a way out of the arena.

DC vs Marvel Comics or Marvel Comics vs DC is a 1997 comic book (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comic_book) mini-series by DC Comics (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DC_Comics) and Marvel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marvel_Comics). In DC vs Marvel, two "Brothers" personify the universes that comics fans know as DC and Marvel. After becoming aware of the other's existence, the brothers challenge each other to a series of duels involving each universe's respective superheroes. The series includes four comics total.
The matches (shown below) are written by Ron Marz (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ron_Marz) and Peter David (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_David), with art by Dan Jurgens (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dan_Jurgens) and Claudio Castellini (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Claudio_Castellini). There are eleven primary battles that occur between the heroes, along with numerous other skirmishes between other DC and Marvel heroes and villains that are briefly shown and are typically displayed only in one or two panels without giving any indication of a decisive winner, with the exception of a fight between Captain America and Bane (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bane_%28comics%29) in which Captain America wins. Of the eleven primary battles, the outcome of five fights are determined through fan votes while the remaining six are decided by various team of writers and artists participating in writing the entire event, with each universe winning three of these fights. Despite Marvel achieving more votes than its rival, and thus winning more matches, the series' storyline opts not to show one side victorious. Marvel wins three of the five open to vote matches (DC's Superman (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superman) and Batman (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batman) win their matches, whereas Marvel's Spider-Man (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spider-Man), Storm (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Storm_%28Marvel_Comics%29), and Wolverine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolverine_%28comics%29) win theirs), this proved a prescient move. The final outcome is a 6–5 Marvel "victory". After Batman (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batman) defeats Captain America (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captain_America), it is revealed that the Amalgam universe (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amalgam_Comics) would be used to settle the dispute, making the Marvel victory an ambiguous one.
Ultimately, the Brothers decide to "settle things in their own way" by temporarily creating a new universe. This new universe, called the Amalgam Universe, depicts a merging of each company's most popular heroes into new ones: Dark Claw (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_Claw) (Batman + Wolverine), Spider-Boy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spider-Boy) (Spider-Man + Superboy), etc. Each new hero stars in a one-shot comic book, all of which are released prior to the series' fourth and final chapter. Caught in the middle of the two worlds is an inter-dimensional traveler by the name of Access (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Access_%28comics%29).
The miniseries is a top vote-getter for the Comics Buyer's Guide (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comics_Buyer%27s_Guide) Fan Award for Favorite Limited Series for 1997 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1997).

This article is about the DC Comics character. For the first African-American (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/African-American) comic-book title character, see Lobo (Dell Comics) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lobo_%28Dell_Comics%29)
Lobo is a DC Comics (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DC_Comics) antihero (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antihero). Created by writer Roger Slifer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Slifer) and artist Keith Giffen (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keith_Giffen), he first appeared in Omega Men (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omega_Men) # 3 (1983).
Lobo is an alien from the planet Czarnia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Czarnia) who works as an interstellar mercenary (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercenary). Although introduced as a hardened, rarely used noir (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noir) villain in the 1980s, Lobo languished in limbo until the early 1990s when he was revived as a one-note gag. Lobo enjoyed a short run as one of DC’s most popular characters throughout the 1990s.
The nineties version of Lobo was apparently intended to be an over-the-top parody (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parody) of Marvel Comics (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marvel_Comics) antihero Wolverine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolverine_%28comics%29). Ironically, in an issue of Deadpool (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deadpool_%28comics%29), another Marvel series, Lobo himself was parodied in the likeness of Dirty Wolff, a large blue skinned man who drove a demonic motorcycle. Wolff's face was obscured by a muzzle over the course of the issue, at the end of which he was killed in an explosion.) The modern version of Lobo has the dress and attitude of a caricatured (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caricature) version of the Hells Angels (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hells_Angels) and has an extreme love of bloodshed and destruction. His character is that of an ultra-violent clown. While he likes to call himself "The Main Man" and "The Ultimate Bastich," he has a habit of getting into sticky situations that he can't quite handle. He has been featured in a number of comic books (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comic_book) noteworthy for their ironic portrayals of over-the-top violence.
"I have no idea why Lobo took off," Giffen said "I came up with him as an indictment of the Punisher (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punisher), Wolverine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolverine_%28comics%29), bad ass hero prototype and somehow he caught on as the high violence poster boy. Go figure."[1] (http://www.newsarama.com/images/interviews/2006/giffen/GiffenBio.htm) (This quote refers to how Giffen wrote Lobo in the nineties. Roger Slifer as the writer of Omega Men #3 created Lobo's eighties incarnation.)
Lobo has made a few appearances in the animated series of the 1990s/2000s-era DC animated universe (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DC_animated_universe). At one point, an animated series and video game (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Video_game) starring the character were to be released, but both were canceled.

[edit (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Lobo_%28DC_Comics%29&action=edit&section=1)] Publication history

Lobo was originally a regular character in Keith Giffen (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keith_Giffen) and Roger Slifer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Slifer)’s Green Lantern (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_Lantern) spin-off (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spin-off) Omega Men (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omega_Men), where he was originally called a Velorpian whose race had been exterminated by Psions, not a Czarnian. After a well received appearance in Justice League International (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Justice_League_International), Lobo became a regular character in L.E.G.I.O.N. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L.E.G.I.O.N.) and its successor series R.E.B.E.L.S. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R.E.B.E.L.S.) Then in 1990, he appeared in his own miniseries (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miniseries), Lobo: The Last Czarnian, by writer Alan Grant (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Grant) and artist Simon Bisley (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_Bisley).
Grant's humor and Bisley's art helped to make this four-issue series a hit, leading to many subsequent miniseries and specials. These include Lobocop (a RoboCop (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RoboCop) parody), Blazing Chain of Love (in which he is sent on a job to a harem (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harem)), Paramilitary Christmas Special (in which he is contracted by the Easter Bunny (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Easter_Bunny) to assassinate Santa Claus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Claus)), Infanticide (where he kills his daughter and all of his other bastard offspring that she has gathered to try to kill him), Convention Special (a send-up of comic book conventions (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comic_book_conventions)), and Unamerican Gladiators (in which Lobo takes part in a deadly televised game show (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game_show)). Lobo also starred in his own title for 64 issues, from 1993 to 1999.
Over the years, Lobo has guest-starred regularly in other series, even in cross-company interactions with such non-DC characters as The Mask (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mask), Judge Dredd (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_Dredd), and the Authority (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Authority). During the Marvel vs. DC (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marvel_vs._DC) crossover series, he fought Wolverine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolverine_%28comics%29) and lost due to popular vote by real-life fans.
In the Lobo series and miniseries (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miniseries), everything is excessive, from the main character's perversions, mindless violence, and vocabulary to the colors and the grotesque graphics. He commonly refers to "do-gooder" superheroes as "The Big Cheese". Everything in the series is laughable (in the sense of being ridiculous, if not always amusing), even his profanities ("Frag (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frag_%28slang%29)", "Feetal's Giz (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Feetal%27s_Giz&action=edit)", and "Bastich"), which are used to replace vocabulary unwanted by a family-friendly DC and to satirize similar expressions in other comics.

[edit (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Lobo_%28DC_Comics%29&action=edit&section=2)] Background

Lobo is a Czarnian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Czarnia) (originally a Velorpian in the Omega Men series), possessing exceptional strength and fortitude. He enjoys nothing better than mindless violence and intoxication. Killing is an end in itself: His name is Khundian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khund) for "he who devours your entrails and thoroughly enjoys it". He is also arrogant and self-centered, focusing almost solely on his own pleasures, although he proudly lives up to his word. Lobo is the last of his kind, having committed complete genocide by killing all the other Czarnians for fun (his previous origin was that Psions had exterminated his race). Lobo cannot stay dead, as both Heaven (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heaven) and Hell (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hell) threw him out in the series 'Lobo's Back'
As detailed in Lobo #0, Lobo unleashed a violent plague upon his homeworld, killing most of its citizens.
In his appearance in Superman: TAS he reveals that he wiped out his entire race for a high school project, which he proceeded to give himself an A for, though it is not mentioned by which means he accomplished this.
Lobo's friends include Dawg,a bulldog (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bulldog) that he often claims isn't his when it gets into trouble; and Ramona, a bail bondswoman/hairdresser. Dawg was stomped to death by Lobo in Lobo #58 in which he claims to Superman (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superman) that the dog is not his (for the final time).

The first appearance of Lobo.


His enemies include the do-gooder superhero parody Goldstar (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goldstar_%28DC_Comics%29), Loo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loo_%28comics%29), Vril Dox (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vril_Dox), Bludhound (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bludhound), Etrigan the Demon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Etrigan_the_Demon), and General Glory (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Glory). Lobo generally tries to kill anyone he's hired to capture, including his fourth-grade teacher named Miss Tribb, his children, Santa Claus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Claus), and Gawd (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gawd). Simon Bisley (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_Bisley)'s dark humor fits well within the pages of his artwork by having countless mutilations of background characters occurring in each panel.
Physically, Lobo resembles a chalk-white human male with blood-red pupilless (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pupil) eyes surrounded by black mascara (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mascara)-like patches. Like many comic book characters, Lobo's body is highly muscular. Although he was originally portrayed as having neatly trimmed purple-grey hair, this was soon redesigned to be a long, straggly, grey-black mane; and more recently into dreadlocks (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dreadlocks). Similarly, the orange-and-purple leotard he wore in his first few appearances has long since been replaced by black leather biker (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biker) gear, which more recently has been replaced with both the robes of his office and pirate inspired gear. His arsenal include numerous guns, and a chain with a hook on his right arm. Extra weapons may include "frag grenades" and giant carving blades.
In addition to his ever-present lust for violence, Lobo also has a strict personal code of honor — he will never violate the letter of an agreement, although he may gleefully disregard its spirit. Also, he is extremely protective of space dolphins, some of which he feeds from his home. A few have been killed in separate incidents, which he avenges with his usual violence.

[edit (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Lobo_%28DC_Comics%29&action=edit&section=3)] History

Lobo acted as an independent bounty hunter until he was tricked by Vril Dox (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vril_Dox) into nominally joining his interstellar police force, L.E.G.I.O.N. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L.E.G.I.O.N.), although he continued solo activity (which seemed to often bring him to Earth and in conflict with its heroes).
Lobo had trouble with a clone that had survived previous misadventures. A battle between the two made it unclear who had survived.
Lobo frequents the business of Al, a rotound diner operator, where he frequently flirts with Al's one and only waitress Darlene. Though Lobo protects these two from any harm, which is frequent, he doesn't seem to understand the distress caused when he tends to destroy the diner. Al and Darlene later prospered, also due to Lobo's violence (he had destroyed a city, except for the diner, all the construction workers thus came to it). He even ended up destroying a diner Al had given to him as part of a birthday celebration.
Lobo has participated in many money making schemes, such as being a priest and being a pop-rock idol. Most of these schemes tend to end with the violent deaths of nearly everyone involved.
Lobo has many friends among the bounty hunter world, though many tend to die around Lobo, either shot by him or killed by enemies he faces.
Lobo fought Aquaman (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aquaman) when a traveling space dolphin visiting Earth was killed by Japanese fishermen. He relented in his violence when he learned Aquaman also loved dolphins; he felt he could not hurt a fellow dolphin lover.
Lobo has teamed up with Guy Gardner (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guy_Gardner_%28comics%29) more then once, helping him to destroy various alien threats to Earth. Lobo frequented Warrior's, Guy's bar, where he enjoyed free drinks.
Lobo fought the Authority (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Authority_%28comics%29) in a violent, dimension-crossing adventure. Jenny Quantum (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jenny_Quantum) had found a comic book detailing his murder of Santa Claus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Claus). Enraged and confused, she split the dimensional barriers, allowing the team to confront Lobo and various characters from said comic book.
Spoiler warning (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Spoiler_warning): Plot and/or ending details follow.
After an extended hiatus, Lobo has recently reappeared in mainstream DC continuity encountering the heroes stranded in space (Adam Strange (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adam_Strange), Animal Man (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_Man), and Starfire (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starfire_%28comics%29)) after the events of Infinite Crisis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infinite_Crisis). To everyone's surprise he did not kill them, apparently contending he had found religion, becoming the spiritual leader of the whole sector 3500, left in shambles by a still unknown assailant. He's the current caretaker of the Emerald Eye (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emerald_Eye) of Ekron.
Spoilers end here.

[edit (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Lobo_%28DC_Comics%29&action=edit&section=4)] Powers and abilities

His superhuman (or super-Czarnian) abilities include high levels of superhuman strength and durability which, however, seems to vary greatly depending on the writer, enabling him to fight beings such as Superman and withstand explosive blasts, the ability to survive unaided in space, a healing factor (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Healing_factor) that heals great amounts of damage, a superhuman sense of smell which allows him to track objects between solar systems, and the ability to regrow an entire new Lobo from each drop of his own spilled blood. This last ability was removed by Vril Dox. However, Lobo was seen regenerating out of a pool of blood in 52 #20 and Lobo himself has supposedly died many times. He still retains his ban from both Heaven and Hell, and is thus immortal.
Despite his violent and loutish nature, Lobo has displayed a genius level intellect such as when he created a virulent plague of immense proportions, and its antidote, in about a week's time, and obliterated his entire species,with the very ironic and unfortunate exception of his 4th grade teacher, when he set it loose on Czarnia.
He, at times, uses high grade weaponry and explosives. His favorite weapon to use is a large chain wrapped around his right wrist with a large hook at the end of it.

Li'l Lobo with the Young Justice (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Young_Justice), in the cover for Young Justice #21. Art by Todd Nauck.


In 2000, Lobo was transformed into a teenager (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teenager) by a magical accident. In this state, he joined Young Justice (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Young_Justice) and eventually accompanied them to Apokolips (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apokolips), where he was killed in combat. However, the aforementioned magical accident had restored his ability to regrow from a single drop of blood, and millions of Lobos rushed into battle against Apokoliptian soldiers, whom the Lobos quickly defeated. The Lobos then turned on each other, until only one was left; in the process, the surviving Lobo regrew to adulthood.
An additional teenage Lobo remained however, having hidden from the fight; he rejoined Young Justice and chose to rename himself Slo-bo. Eventually, this clone began to degrade, becoming blind and so grew on the brink of death. Before he could die, however, Darkseid (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darkseid) teleported him to the headquarters of Young Justice One Million (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DC_One_Million) in the 853rd Century, turning him into a (still aware) statue in the process.

[edit (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Lobo_%28DC_Comics%29&action=edit&section=6)] Ultimate Bastich

In the two-part Lobo vs The Mask crossover, Lobo is hired by a surviving council of numerous devastated planets to hunt down a terrible killer, the same one who destroyed those worlds, in exchange for a billion credits. His trail led to Earth, Lobo encounters the current wearer of the ancient mask, the resulting battle destroying Manhattan and leaving Lobo nothing but a severed head, waiting for his body to re-grow.
Big Head, convincing Lobo he wants the previous mask wearer, agrees to a team-up to hunt the "Ultimate Bastich" down. Big Head leads Lobo on a chase to nowhere, killing even more and blowing up a solar system in the process. Fed up with Big Head, Lobo uses a special "guilt grenade" to force the wearer to remove the mask so that he can use it himself.
Lobo promptly kills an entire intergalactic bar of aliens, and is sucked into a wormhole on his ride through space. Landing in parts unknown, Lobo/Mask heads to a single planet where, crashing the 400th annual Feel Good Games, he insults a king, and proceeds to kill numerous people. A crayon drawing left on his bike with the words "YOU SMELL" incurs his wrath, and he destroys numerous planets hunting down the one who drew the insulting picture.
Waking up one day, Lobo finds himself back on Earth, and realizes the mask used him. Tossing it away, he proceeds to leave only to pass himself arriving on Earth- as it turns out, the wormhole sent him back in time roughly one month. He had been hired to hunt himself, and the alley where he dumped the mask was the same alley where the pickpocket would find it in part 1. However, Lobo breaks the time loop, literally turning himself in as he shaved the other Lobo's head and painted him green for the reward money. Meanwhile, Big Head, realizing that Lobo has broken the loop, decides to have fun of its own on Earth.

[edit (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Lobo_%28DC_Comics%29&action=edit&section=7)] Lobo the Duck

Lobo the Duck (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lobo_the_Duck) is an incarnation of Lobo and Marvel Comics (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marvel_Comics)' Howard the Duck (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Howard_the_Duck) in the Amalgam Comics (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amalgam_Comics) company crossovers. The big arm is derived from Lobo's alternative self, Bimbo, of Lobo's Back #2. He fights characters of DC and Marvel combinations such as the Kidnoids, and Ambush the Lunatik. His friends include Impossible Dawg (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Impossible_Dawg&action=edit) and Doctor Strangefate (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doctor_Strangefate).

Lobo as he appears on Superman: The Animated Series (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superman:_The_Animated_Series).


Lobo first appeared on the small screen in Superman: The Animated Series (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superman:_The_Animated_Series). In the episode "The Main Man", Lobo (voiced by Brad Garrett (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brad_Garrett)) was hired by an alien named the "Preserver" to capture Superman and add him to the Preserver's collection of rare and endangered species. Lobo headed straight for Earth and started firing in the middle of a police station until Superman (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superman) (whom Lobo referred to as a "Big Blue Babysitter", due to him saving bystanders from Lobo's crossfire) eventually showed up to confront him. The two battled all over downtown Metropolis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metropolis_%28comics%29), a battle which ended with Lobo leaving Earth supposedly to "take five".
Superman followed after Lobo into space, where Lobo lured Superman into a trap set by the Preserver. Superman was eventually captured and placed in a specialized cage, so that the Preserver might preserve Superman as the last remnant of the Kryptonian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krypton_%28comics%29) race. However, the Preserver then decided to add Lobo to his collection as well, since Lobo was also technically the last of his own race, though by his own fault rather than misfortune. Superman and Lobo eventually joined forces to escape the Preserver, and another group of bountyhunters who had been pursuing Lobo to reclaim a prisoner, and in return, Lobo promised to leave Earth alone.
Lobo also briefly appeared in another Superman: The Animated Series episode in which Maxima (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maxima_%28comics%29) falls in love with Superman.
Lobo eventually returned to Earth, however, in the Justice League (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Justice_League_%28TV_series%29) episode "Hereafter. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hereafter_%28Justice_League_episode%29)" Believing that Superman had died, Lobo wanted to join the Justice League, insisting that only he could take Superman's place. Lobo seemed to be motivated more out of ego (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ego) and a chance "to bust heads" than any actual desire to do good or help others. In spite of his obvious violent tendencies and his lack of any redeeming moral virtues, the League allowed Lobo to help them for a short time while they dealt with a large number of supervillains running amok in Metropolis in response to Superman's apparent death. Lobo battled and defeated the supervillain Kalibak (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalibak), primarily by piling more & more cars on top of him until he said "Uncle". In the end, Superman returned to the ranks of the League, and Lobo, his membership rejected, was forced to leave. Lobo has not reappeared since the League removed him. Brad Garrett reprised his voice role.
As in the comics, Lobo possessed exceptional strength and durability as well as an arsenal of weapons. However, he never displayed any of the healing powers or advanced senses that he possesses in the comics, probably due to the gruesome injuries he sustained in the comics, and the even gorier respawning, was found unfitting for a show aimed at kids.
Lobo's gutting hook was never shown during any of the character's appearances. However, he did briefly utilize a steel chain in the second part of the Superman: The Animated Series episode "The Main Man".
In 1999, Batman: The Animated Series (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batman:_The_Animated_Series) writer Boyd Kirkland developed a new Lobo series for Kids' WB (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kids%27_WB) with artist Steven Gordon (http://stevenegordon.com/presentation_art/lobo.html). The series never went into production, as the network passed on it in a last-minute schedule announcement that year, to the surprise of the production team.

Andrew Bryniarski (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Bryniarski) stars as Lobo, with Tom Gibis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Gibis) as the Easter Bunny (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Easter_Bunny) and Michael V. Allen as Santa Claus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Claus). The film was made with a budget of $2,400, although many professionals donated time and effort. It premiered at the AFI in May 2002.

[edit (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Lobo_%28DC_Comics%29&action=edit&section=11)] Merchandise

Lobo has only had a few bits of merchandise released, most by DC Direct. The first was a 12" Vinyl figure sold at the WB Stores.The second was a plush Lobo doll. The third was a 6" scale action figure which came with a hook and chain, Dawg, his bike and a spare set of hands to hold the handlebars. The fourth, part of the Reactivated line, is simply the old action figure with a new head sculpt and paint job, with a new chain, no Dawg, no bike, and no extra hands.

wolverine vs lobo??
Back around 1995, ‘96 when the giant comic boom was starting to quiet down, comic companies found themselves scrambling for ideas. Even the two giants Marvel and DC found their sales dropping. It was time for something big. Marvel had beaten the Infinity Gauntlet to death and DC still had remnants of Zero Hour running around, so they each needed something new and fresh. Someone at one of the companies must have gotten drunk at an office Christmas party and woke up in the janitor’s closet and thought, "Hey, we should go do a Marvel and DC crossover!" Somehow the two companies actually agreed to it. What ensued was one of the most horrid comic monstrosities known to fans.
http://www.brokenfrontier.com/ektron-content/LoboUnboundCVR4_0110.jpgThe basic idea was to match up each character with their counterpart from the other company. It eventually turned to just pairing up whoever might make an interesting fight. Batman against Captain America, Flash against Quicksilver, She Hulk against Supergirl, Namor against Aquaman, etc. All of these fights were ridiculous, and should have never happened. But the one battle we will be exploring at great length is the fight between Lobo and Wolverine.
Why are we going to explore the fight between Lobo and Wolverine? Because it was crap! How could Wolverine possibly beat Lobo?
Let’s go over the facts for a moment.
Wolverine is the product of the Weapon X project. Adamantium was grafted to his bones to make them nearly impossible to break. He has little or no memory of his past and every few months his origin will change according to who’s writing the book. He has adamantium claws and a healing factor that can heal almost anything and his favorite word is "Bub." He’s known as the rebel X-Man and has the hots for Jean Gray.
Lobo is an alien bounty hunter who destroyed his home world and everyone on it so he would be the only surviving member of his race. He has been killed and sent to Heaven and Hell but was kicked out after causing too much mayhem, so he might be impossible to kill. If Lobo gives you his word about something he is compelled to do anything he can to keep it. Lobo also has the ability to locate anyone he has ever met. He’s invulnerable and will kill anyone in his path for merely looking at him the wrong way.
So how could Wolverine possibly win you say? Well, I’ll tell you my faithful reader! You see the outcome of these fights was to be determined by the fans! That’s right, mindless idiots just like you and me actually wrote in and voted to have Wolverine beat Lobo in a fight. Why? Because in the mid ‘90s Wolverine was at the height of his popularity! You could have pit Wolverine against Jesus Christ and Wolverine would have gotten more votes!
Imagine for a second that Wolverine and Lobo were real people. If you look at the facts, there is no way Lobo could have been defeated by Wolvie. Lobo wouldn’t even have to fight him; he could just drag Wolverine into space and leave him there. But even if a fight did take place, Lobo could literally take Logan’s head off before he could even get his claws out. It’s not even a fair fight! Lobo has gone toe to toe with Superman multiple times, and nearly won. You won’t see Wolverine taking on Superman, will you?
http://www.brokenfrontier.com/ektron-content/wolverine145_0105.jpgI know what you’re thinking, "J.P. you are a giant geek. How could you let something like this upset you so much?" I know it’s completely geeky of me to still be pissed over something stupid like this that happened almost 10 years ago, but being the Lobo fan and Wolverine abolitionist that I am it’s my duty to set things straight. And no, I don’t think Wolverine is that bad. In the hands of the right writers, he can be pretty cool. He’s just become so hackneyed over the years. Marvel has a tendency to give him guest appearances in any book just to try to boost sales.
So basically we, the fans, are to blame for this mess. I shouldn’t be mad at Marvel and DC for thinking up this craziness, I should blame us the fans for actually voting for it. I’d like to see the numbers from the ballots that were mailed in. I hope the total amounted to at least the double digits. Let’s hope Marvel and DC never try this again.

EyesBrown, glowing red when using powers HairBrown http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/6/62/Inf_powers.gif (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:Inf_powers.gif) Powers Cyclops possesses the mutant ability to project a beam of heatless ruby-colored concussive force from his eyes, which act as inter-dimensional apertures between this universe and another. Cyclops' body constantly absorbs ambient energy, such as sunlight, from his environment into his body's cells that allows him to open the apertures. Cyclops' mind generates a psionic field that is attuned to the forces that maintain the apertures. Because this field envelops his body, it automatically shunts the other-dimensional particles back into their point of origin when they collide with his body. Thus, his body is protected from the effects of the particles, and even the thin membranes of his eyelids are sufficient to block the emission of energy. The synthetic ruby quartz crystal used to fashion the lenses of Cyclops' eyewear is resonant to his minds' psionic field and is similarly protected. The width of Cyclops' optic blast is focused by his mind's psionic field with the same autonomic function that regulated his original eyes' ability to focus. As Cyclops focuses, the size of the apertures change and thus act as a valve to control the flow of particles and the beam's relative power. The height of Cyclops's eye-blast is controlled by his visor's adjustable slit. The beam's effective range is approximately 2,000 feet.
Due to a head injury, Cyclops is unable to shut off his optic blasts at will and must therefore wear ruby quartz lenses to block the beams.
Abilities Unrevealed Weapons None Paraphernalia The mask Cyclops wears to prevent random discharge is lined with powdered ruby quartz crystal. It incorporates two longitudinally mounted flat lenses that can lever inward providing a constantly variable exit slot. The inverted clamshell mechanism is operated by a twin system of miniature electrical motors. As a safety factor there is a constant positive closing pressure provided by springs. The mask itself is made of high-impact cycolac plastic. There is an overriding finger-operated control mechanism on either side of the mask, and normal operation is through a flat micro-switch installed in the thumb of either glove.

Scott Summers was the first of two sons born to Major Christopher Summers (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Corsair), a test pilot for the U.S. Air Force, and his wife Katherine (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Summers%2C_Katherine&action=edit). Christopher was flying his family home from vacation when their plane was attacked by a spacecraft from the interstellar Shi'ar Empire. To save their lives, Katherine pushed Scott and his brother Alex (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Havok) out of the plane with the only available parachute. Scott suffered a head injury upon landing, thus forever preventing him from controlling his mutant power by himself.
With their parents presumed dead, the authorities separated the two boys. Alex was adopted, but Scott remained comatose in a hospital for a year. On recovering, he was placed in an orphanage in Omaha, Nebraska that was secretly controlled by his future enemy, the evil geneticist Mister Sinister (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Mister_Sinister).
As a teenager, Scott came into the foster care of Jack Winters, a mutant criminal known as the Jack O'Diamonds (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Jack_O%27Diamonds&action=edit). After Scott began to suffer from severe headaches he was sent to a specialist who discovered that lenses made of ruby quartz corrected the problem. Soon after, Scott's mutant power first erupted from his eyes as an uncontrollable blast of optic force. The blast demolished a crane, causing it to drop its payload toward a terrified crowd. Scott saved lives by obliterating the object with another blast, but the bystanders believed that he had tried to kill them and rallied into an angry mob. Scott fled, escaping on a freight train.
Winters sought to use Scott's newfound talent in his crimes, and physically abused the young boy when he initially refused. However, Scott's display of power had attracted the attention of the mutant telepath Professor Charles Xavier (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Professor_X), who teamed up with F.B.I. agent Fred Duncan (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Duncan%2C_Fred&action=edit) in their mutual attempt to find Scott. Scott was rescued from Winters' clutches and was enlisted by Xavier as the first member of the X-Men (http://www.marvel.com/universe/X-Men), a team of young mutants who trained to use their powers in the fight for human/mutant equality.
As Cyclops, Scott became deputy leader of the X-Men. While he was a skilled tactician, his social skills were lacking. Scott had fallen in love with his teammate Jean Grey (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Phoenix_%28Jean_Grey%29), but his reserved demeanor prevented him from expressing his feelings for her for years. When Xavier's other original recruits left the fold following an encounter with the sentient (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Glossary:S#sentient) island-being Krakoa (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Krakoa), Cyclops stayed on as deputy leader of the new team.
Shortly thereafter, the cosmic entity known as the Phoenix Force (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Phoenix_Force) took Jean's place. When it committed suicide, Scott believed the love of his life had died and he left the X-Men. During his time away from the team, Scott met fishing boat captain Lee Forrester (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Forrester%2C_Lee) who helped him work through his grief. Scott eventually returned to the X-Men whereupon he met Madelyne Pryor (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Madelyne_Pryor), a woman who bore an uncanny resemblance to Jean. Unaware that Madelyne was a clone of Jean created by Sinister, Scott fell in love with Madelyne and they were soon married. Madelyne fell pregnant and bore Scott a son named Nathan Christopher (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Cable).
When the real Jean emerged from suspended animation, Scott abandoned his wife and son and rejoined the other original X-Men in establishing a new team, X-Factor (http://www.marvel.com/universe/X-Factor). During a demonic invasion (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Inferno) of New York City, X-Factor and the X-Men fought against a super-powered and insane Madelyne. The invasion was thwarted after Madelyne perished in combat with Jean.
Later, the mutant warlord named Apocalypse (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Apocalypse_%28En_Sabah_Nur%29) infected baby Nathan with a techno-organic virus. To save his son's life, Scott had to allow a member of the Clan Askani (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Clan_Askani&action=edit) to transport Nathan two millennia into the future, where it had been foreseen that he would deliver the world from Apocalypse’s clutches. X-Factor disbanded soon after, and its members returned to the ranks of the X-Men. Scott and his long-time love Jean were married, and whilst on their honeymoon their spirits were taken into the timestream by the Clan Askani’s matriarch. Arriving in the future, they inhabited new bodies and raised Nathan for twelve years. When they returned to their own time and bodies, Nathan remained in the future and ultimately matured into his time's greatest hero: Cable (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Cable).
Following Professor X's arrest for crimes committed as the evil psionic entity Onslaught (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Onslaught_%28entity%29), Scott assumed the role of leadership of the X-Men once more. Soon after, the government sponsored mutant-hunting operation known as "Zero Tolerance" took effect, and the villainous Bastion (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Bastion) captured the X-Men. In his attempt to destroy mutantkind, Bastion placed a nanotech bomb inside Scott’s body. The X-Men escaped, and the mutant doctor named Cecilia Reyes (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Reyes%2C_Cecilia) saved Scott’s life. Scott and his wife soon took a leave of absence from the X-Men for a period of recuperation.
Not long after returning to the team, Scott and Jean soon found themselves embroiled in Apocalypse's bid for cosmic power by assembling "The Twelve (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=The_Twelve&action=edit)" - a group of mutants who would determine the fate of their kind that included Scott, Jean, and Cable. They were wired to a machine that would channel their awesome energies into Apocalypse, allowing him to absorb the body of the time-tossed powerful mutant teenager known as X-Man (http://www.marvel.com/universe/X-Man). As his teammates fell around him, a powerless Scott saved X-Man and merged with the would-be conqueror to create a new evil entity. Jean detected Scott's psyche inside Apocalypse and prevented the X-Men from destroying him, however he was presumed dead by most of his teammates. Only Jean and Cable refused to believe Scott had perished.
Investigating rumors he was alive, the pair found him in the birthplace of Apocalypse in Akkaba, Egypt, struggling to reassert his mind over the villain's psyche. Ultimately, Jean was able to physically rip Apocalypse's essence from Scott's body using her mental powers, and Cable destroyed it with his own powers.
Scott left for a small period of recuperation, during which he met and reconciled with his father. Afterwards, Scott returned to the X-Men, but his association with Apocalypse had given him a grimmer, more serious personality than ever before. As a result, many of his relationships became strained, including his marriage to Jean. Scott sought the counsel of his teammate Emma Frost (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Frost%2C_Emma) and the pair began a psychic affair. When Jean discovered Scott's betrayal, he left the X-Men in order to sort out the mess his life had become.
Following the outing of Professor X as a mutant to the world, his school was rechristened the Xavier Institute of Higher Learning and opened its doors to the mutant population at large, training and educating dozens of young new students to help them cope with their burgeoning abilities. After the death of his wife, Scott assumed the position of co-headmaster of the School alongside his new love, Emma.
Cyclops's world was further upset when a mysterious mutant attacked him, Wolverine and Marvel Girl and brought him and Rachel to a secret abandoned facility. Cyclops eventually discovered that the mutant was none other than his brother Gabriel, who had been a student of Moira's that Professor X had sent to rescue Scott from Krakoa, and who was thought to have been killed by the mutant island. Scott had witnessed the deaths of Gabriel (Vulcan) and his teammates, and Xavier had mind-wiped him to alleviate the psychic trauma of the event. Shaken to the core, Cyclops expelled the now-human Xavier from the Institute.

The Early Years

Growing up in suburban Glenville, Johnny Storm was drawn to automobiles despite his mother's death in a car accident, and became quite a mechanic at a young age. While still a teenager he selflessly rescued two of his friends from a burning building. No stranger to adventure, Johnny-son of famous doctor and infamous criminal Franklin Storm (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Storm%2C_Franklin)-was nearly chosen as the human host of the demonic Zarathos, the Ghost Rider, and was attacked by the legendary St. Germaine, who sought the power for himself. Johnny escaped the lure of Zarathos with the help of archeologist Max Parrish, the uncle of Cammy Brandeis, on whom Johnny had a bit of a crush.
[edit (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Template:Bio&action=edit&section=2)]
Out of Space and Into the Fantastic Four

Following his sister, Sue (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Invisible_Woman), Johnny joined Reed Richards' (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Mister_Fantastic) crew in a space flight. Riddled with cosmic radiation, Johnny transformed into a flaming monster when the flight crashed back to earth. Calling himself Human Torch in tribute to the World War II era hero of the same name, the youthful Johnny found new adventure as part of the Fantastic Four (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Fantastic_Four), proving to be an invaluable if somewhat volatile member of the team. Falling out with his teammates after a battle with the Miracle Man (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Miracle_Man), Johnny left the group and encountered amnesiac World War II hero Namor the Sub-Mariner (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Sub-Mariner). Recognizing Namor from comic books, Johnny dropped him into the sea, hoping to restore his memory. The plan worked, but after Namor found Atlantis in ruins, he declared war on humanity. Johnny rejoined the FF and they drove Namor off. The immature Johnny again considered quitting the Fantastic Four, this time to join his cousin Bones' (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Bones&action=edit) circus, but quickly returned to the team.
[edit (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Template:Bio&action=edit&section=3)]
High School Days

Though a member of the world-famous Fantastic Four, Johnny was still a teenage Glenville High student - albeit one who regularly clashed with super-powered menaces. Johnny even tried to conceal his dual identity from most of the locals at first, though this soon proved futile (the true identities of all four FF founders being widely known almost from the start). In solo action, he fought the communist Destroyer (Charles Stanton) (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Destroyer_%28Charles_Stanton%29&action=edit) and Rabble Rouser; the Wizard (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Wizard) (born Bentley Wittman); Zemu, Warlord of the 5th Dimension; Paste-Pot Pete (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Trapster); Acrobat (Carl Zante) (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Acrobat_%28Carl_Zante%29); Vilhelm von Vile, the enigmatic Painter of 1000 Perils; the Sorcerer of Glenville Woods; the Asbestos Man (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Asbestos_Man) (Orson Kasloff); the Eel (Leopold Stryke) (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Eel_%28Leopold_Stryke%29); the Plantman (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Plantman); modern-day pirate Captain Barracuda (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Captain_Barracuda_%28modern%29&action=edit), whom Johnny defeated in the first of several team-ups with his super-heroic opposite number Iceman (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Iceman); and the Terrible Trio.
Super-villains, however, weren't Johnny's only rivals. Mike Snow, a member of the Glenville High wrestling squad, bullied Johnny until an accidental flare-up of the Torch's powers scarred Snow's face. Despite their animosity, Snow concealed the incident, blaming the injuries on a prank gone wrong and maintaining that Johnny had actually saved his life that night by flying him to the hospital. While Mike tried to move on with his life, Johnny did the same, dating fellow student Dorrie Evans, although she eventually grew tired of his constant disappearances and broke it off. Johnny met another teenage hero, Spider-Man (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Spider-Man_%28Peter_Parker%29), who broke into the Baxter Building (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Baxter_Building) hoping to impress the FF. Despite their early misunderstandings, the Torch and Spider-Man eventually became good friends.
[edit (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Template:Bio&action=edit&section=4)]
The Skrulls and the Death of Franklin Storm

When the Super-Skrull (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Super-Skrull) (Kl’rt), possessing the combined powers of the Fantastic Four, attacked the team, the Human Torch managed to trap him inside a cave, but the Super-Skrull escaped and impersonated Franklin Storm. The Four exposed the Super-Skrull, but the Skrulls strapped a bomb to the real Franklin's chest, and Franklin sacrificed his own life to save his children. A trip to the Skrull homeworld and the death of Warlord Morrat, the Skrull who authorized Franklin's murder, brought some measure of revenge, but this was not the last time the Skrulls would interfere in Johnny's life.
[edit (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Template:Bio&action=edit&section=5)]
Off to College, Falling in Love

After graduating high school, Johnny enrolled in Metro College, where he befriended his roommate, Wyatt Wingfoot (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Wingfoot%2C_Wyatt). Wyatt joined Johnny and the Fantastic Four on a trip to Wakanda, where they first encountered the Black Panther (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Black_Panther_%28T%27Challa%29) and helped him defeat Klaw (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Klaw). Around this time, Johnny met the young Inhuman Crystal (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Crystal). It was love at first sight, and Johnny, along with the rest of the FF, helped her overthrow the mad Inhuman prince Maximus (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Maximus). Their love was passionate but short-lived, as Crystal returned to Attilan (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Attilan) and married Quicksilver (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Quicksilver), the son of Magneto (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Magneto_%28Magnus%29) - eventually bearing his child. Johnny was crushed, but tried to move on. Hoping to catch up on old times with Dorrie Evans, he found that she had married and had two kids since they had broken up. Despite dropping out of Metro U, Johnny remained friends with Wyatt, who often participated in the Fantastic Four's adventures and was later romantically linked to the She-Hulk (http://www.marvel.com/universe/She-Hulk). When Johnny's sister Sue and her husband Reed were separated, Johnny joined the Thing (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Thing_%28Benjamin_Grimm%29), Medusa and Thundra (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Thundra&action=edit) in a staged battle against the rehabilitated Namor in an effort to bring the couple back together. Their ploy worked, and Sue and Reed patched things up for good. Seeking direction in his life, Johnny was tricked into attending the high-class Security College, a front for the Monocle, an agent of the megalomaniacal Enclave (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Enclave), who used him to steal top-secret high-tech weapons. Spider-Man broke the Monocle's control of the Torch. Johnny then joined the rest of the FF in space, where they helped the Champions of Xandar (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Champions_%28of_Xandar%29) against the invading Skrulls. When Johnny's teammates were dying from a Skrull aging ray, Johnny destroyed the robotic assassin Skrull X, allowing the infirm Reed to use his weapon to reverse the aging.
[edit (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Template:Bio&action=edit&section=6)]
New Flames

Hearing of the execution of David George Munson, his former high school classmate, Johnny helped the NYPD clear his name and nabbed several leading members of the Maggia criminal organization, including Hammerhead. After a brief relationship with auto mechanic Lorrie Melton, Johnny fell for Frankie Raye, a woman desperately afraid of his flames. Frankie eventually discovered that her pyrophobia stemmed from being hypnotized by her late stepfather, Phineas Horton (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Horton%2C_Phineas&action=edit) (creator of the android Human Torch (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Human_Torch_%28Jim_Hammond%29)), into forgetting that he had accidentally given her flame powers of her own. Johnny helped Frankie adjust to her rediscovered powers as their relationship blossomed, but when Galactus (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Galactus) returned to Earth, Frankie agreed to follow him into space as his new herald, Nova (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Nova_%28Frankie_Raye%29). Distraught, Johnny was comforted by Frankie's former roommate, Julie Angel, and began to have feelings for her. Confusing matters further, Julie's friend, Sharon Selleck, had a crush on Johnny. Julie eventually moved to California to continue her acting career and nothing came of Sharon's crush.
Johnny was briefly abducted by agents of the Messiah (Alden Maas) in his mad plot to expand the Earth by super-heating its core. Brought to Battleworld by the Beyonder and forced to battle various super-villains, Johnny met and was healed by Zsaji, a native of the planet. Physically but not emotionally attracted to Zsaji, Johnny found an unlikely rival in Colossus (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Colossus_%28Piotr_Rasputin%29) (Peter Rasputin), who fell in love with the healer. Although Zsaji returned Johnny's affection at first, she eventually chose Colossus over the Torch, but then sacrificed her own life to rescue several dying heroes. Johnny returned to Earth, where he found himself drawn to Alicia Masters (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Masters%2C_Alicia), longtime girlfriend of Johnny's then-absent FF teammate, the Thing. Johnny and Alicia's romance helped estrange the Thing from the FF for a lengthy period. Johnny hit his lowest point when Tommy Hanson, a young fan of his, set himself on fire in an attempt to be more like his hero. Hearing of the boy's death, Johnny considered retiring as the Human Torch, but the Beyonder managed to talk him out of it. Eventually Johnny married Alicia, but a jealous Thing offered a spot in the Fantastic Four to Crystal, who was separated from Quicksilver at the time. Johnny's old feelings for Crystal slowly returned, but his love for Alicia enabled him to resist temptation, and Crystal eventually left the team.
[edit (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Template:Bio&action=edit&section=7)]
The Imposter Revealed

Despite their long and intimate relationship, Johnny was horrified to discover that the Alicia he loved and married was not the true Alicia Masters, but a Skrull imposter named Lyja (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Lyja). Originally sent to infiltrate and destroy the Fantastic Four, Lyja truly fell in love with Johnny, and joined the Fantastic Four in confronting Paibok (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Paibok), the Skrull who had kidnapped the real Alicia. Lyja seemingly sacrificed her life to protect Johnny, but her former lover Paibok nursed her back to health. Trying to move on from yet another failed relationship, Johnny enrolled at Empire State University; but Devos (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Devos&action=edit), Paibok and even Lyja attacked Johnny at ESU, forcing him to go nova, burning down a large section of the campus. Johnny briefly became a fugitive, chased after by Silver Sable's (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Silver_Sable) Wild Pack (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Wild_Pack), until Reed agreed to sell some of his patents to pay for the damages. Lyja returned to Johnny's life again, tricking him into believing she was carrying his baby. When this proved a lie as well, Johnny left her again.
[edit (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Template:Bio&action=edit&section=8)]
Uncle Johnny to the Rescue/Heroes Reborn

Johnny briefly joined his nephew Franklin's (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Richards%2C_Franklin) Fantastic Force (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Fantastic_Force) team, where he battled his virtually omnipotent extra-dimensional counterpart Vangaard (formerly Gaard), convincing him to abandon his mission of eliminating redundant realities by showing him the hero he could become. Lyja posed as student Laura Green and dated Johnny to stay close to him; Johnny recognized her when they kissed though he didn't share this until later, but the two never had the chance to explore their true feelings. After Franklin Richards created his Counter-Earth (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Counter-Earth_%28Franklin_Richards%29) and rescued the Fantastic Four, Avengers (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Avengers), and several other heroes from death at the hands of Onslaught (entity) (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Onslaught_%28entity%29), Roma (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Roma) deemed Franklin too powerful to ignore, and sent the Technet (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Technet&action=edit) and the (Captain Britain) Corps to retrieve him. The Human Torch convinced Roma that Franklin's family, the Fantastic Four, would be able to nurture him so that he would not grow up to be a danger to the Omniverse (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Omniverse&action=edit).

The Four Fractured

While the rest of the Fantastic Four battled the Gideon Trust (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Gideon_Trust&action=edit) and Annihilus (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Annihilus) in the Negative Zone (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Negative_Zone), Johnny was forced to recruit a temporary FF team consisting of Ant-Man (Scott Lang) (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Ant-Man_%28Scott_Lang%29), Johnny's on-and-off girlfriend Namorita (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Namorita) (Namor's cousin), and the She-Hulk (http://www.marvel.com/universe/She-Hulk), who battled the Gideon Trust on Earth. When the cosmic entity Abraxas (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Abraxas) came to Earth-616, Johnny teamed with an extra-dimensional version of the now-deceased Frankie Raye to retrieve the Ultimate Nullifier, a weapon powerful enough to destroy Abraxas. This Nova betrayed Johnny and gave the Nullifier to her master, Abraxas, but even that couldn't save Abraxas after Galactus joined the fight. Following the battle, Susan found herself pregnant again, and, with Reed off battling the Hidden Ones, Johnny was forced to seek help from Dr. Doom (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Doctor_Doom_%28Victor_von_Doom%29) when problems with the pregnancy threatened Sue's life. Doom saved both Sue and her daughter, Valeria (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Richards%2C_Valeria).

New Jobs and Failed Careers

Seeking an acting career, Johnny was cast as the Rawhide Kid in a summer blockbuster; but it was eventually decided he wasn't ready for the role, which was given to Lon Zelig (actually the Super-Skrull). Johnny also spent some time as a firefighter at the behest of his former classmate, Mike Snow; but when Snow moved away after his wife turned out to be a psychotic arsonist and seemingly died, Johnny left the job (though he later returned to the profession during a period when the FF was short on cash). Sick of her brother's directionless life, Sue forced him to take a job as the Chief Financial Officer for Fantastic Four, Inc. Although initially in over his head, Johnny was able to stop a manufacturer from stealing the secret of Reed's Unstable Molecule suits, and began to warm up to both the job and his co-worker, Jian Fetta.

Financial Troubles and Falling Fame

Unfortunately, after a major battle with Doom, Reed attempted to claim Latveria (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Latveria) for the Fantastic Four, an act that turned the United States government against them. To escape trial, the group was forced to sell many of their patents and holdings to the government, which left Johnny's wallet much emptier than usual and sent his popularity plummeting. Seeking help from the least popular person he could think of, Johnny contacted Spider-Man, who tried to cheer Johnny up by bringing him to a water park, where they were attacked by Hydro-Man (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Hydro-Man). Easily defeating the villain and rescuing the park's popular mascot, Johnny found his popularity rising once more. Johnny also began to converse with a new girl over the internet, and hit it off when he finally met her. This girl, Cole, turned out to be the daughter of one of Johnny's oldest enemies, the Wizard (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Wizard); but although she was sent to trick the FF, Cole actually helped lead them to the Wizard's hideout, where they battled him and his new Frightful Four (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Frightful_Four). The Wizard escaped and took Cole with him, but Johnny remained hopeful about meeting her again.

Herald of Galactus

Recently, an alien named Zius (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Zius&action=edit) came to Earth, the location of the one being in the universe who could nullify his Galactus-proof planet-cloaking invisibility shield, Susan Richards. Zius threatened to destroy the planet if Sue did not sacrifice herself, but Reed used his power gun to switch her powers with Johnny's and tricked Zius into leaving the planet. As he left orbit, Galactus destroyed Zius' spaceship and claimed Johnny as his new Herald. Unwilling to lead Galactus to populated worlds, Johnny used his new powers to analyze Galactus and, with the help of the FF and Quasar (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Quasar_%28Wendell_Vaughn%29), managed to transform Galactus back into humanoid form. Johnny's power cosmic faded, but during Reed's subsequent efforts to reverse Sue and Johnny's power switch, a remnant of the power caused a flare-up that temporarily sent the FF's powers into four random New Yorkers.

Civil War

In the wake of the tragedy at Stanford, Connecticut (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Civil_War), Johnny found himself a victim of the declining public view of super heroes when an angry mob attacked him outside of a New York nightclub. Storm was hospitalized in a coma for a time. After regaining consciousness, Johnny left the Fantastic Four along with his sister. They worked alonside the underground against the forces of the Registration Act until a battle in downtown New York that forced Captain America (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Captain_America_%28Steve_Rogers%29) to stand down and turn himself in. With the official resistance over, Johnny and Sue returned to the team to attempt to rebuild.

the ripping friends

The show centered on a group of four superhuman (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superhuman) brothers who attempt to fight crime from their base, RIPCOT (the Really Impressive Prototype City Of (Next) Tuesday): Crag, Rip, Slab, and Chunk, Crag being the leader. Friends of the four include Jimmy The Hapless Idiot Boy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jimmy_The_Hapless_Idiot_Boy), a mentally-challenged drooling child, and their foster mother He-Mom (the name speaks for itself). The villains range from the Indigestible Wad (a wad of gum (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chewing_gum) who sucks moisture out of people), to Flathead (an invertebrate (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invertebrate) in search of a spine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vertebral_column)), to their own underpants.

Abilities Ms. Marvel is a skilled pilot & hand to hand combatant Weapons None Paraphernalia None
Carol Danvers entered the Air Force upon graduating from high school to pursue her love of aircrafts and her dreams of flying. Carol was a top student at the Air Force Academy and enjoyed a rapid career advancement rising to the rank of Major. Because of her stellar performance, superb combat skills and natural intellect, Carol was recruited into the intelligence field. She ended up serving with the C.I.A., during which time she met and worked with Colonel Nick Fury (http://marvel.com/universe/Fury%2C_Nick). She was partnered with Colonel Michael Rossi and the two became lovers. Carol had a distinguished career in the C.I.A. While on special assignment with Nick Fury, Carol met the Canadian agent called Logan (http://marvel.com/universe/Wolverine_%28James_Howlett%29). The two were eventually paired up and shared a number of adventures together. During one of their infamous escapades, they clashed with the brutal Sabretooth (http://marvel.com/universe/Sabretooth) who was working for the Hellfire Club (http://marvel.com/universe/Hellfire_Club). During their time together, Logan and Carol became close friends, perhaps even lovers. Both have saved each other’s lives numerous times.
When Carol was captured by the KGB and imprisoned at Lubyanka prison, Logan was among those who defied orders to save her. Following her affiliation with the C.I.A., Carol took a position with N.A.S.A. as the security director for Cape Canaveral. It was in this capacity that Carol first met Captain Marvel (http://marvel.com/universe/Captain_Marvel_%28Mar-Vell%29), the Kree (http://marvel.com/universe/Kree) warrior, Mar-Vell. In her official capacity, Carol was challenged with unraveling the mystery of this alien soldier. During her investigation, the two forged a unique bond, first as friends and then as lovers. It was this relationship that would change Carol forever.
Captain Marvel's mortal enemy, Colonel Yon-Rogg (http://marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Yon-Rogg&action=edit) kidnapped Carol, using her as bait in his conflict with Mar-vell. In the course of the battle, Carol and Mar-vell were caught in the explosion of a Kree Psyche-Magneton (http://marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Psyche-Magneton&action=edit) device. The energy bombardment somehow caused Carol’s genetic structure to be melded with Mar-vell's. While Mar-vell was apparently unaltered by the event, Carol was now a perfect hybrid of Kree and human genes. In addition, she possessed all of Mar-vell's Kree knowledge and training. Through this transformation, Ms. Marvel was born.
Because of her failure to capture Captain Marvel, Carol lost her job at N.A.S.A. She recovered quickly, writing a successful novel about her experience in the space industry. This lead to her landing a position as the editor of WOMAN magazine, a subsidiary of the Daily Bugle (http://marvel.com/universe/Daily_Bugle_%28Building%29). Carol’s viewpoints as a staunch feminist created tensions with her boss J. Jonah Jameson (http://marvel.com/universe/Jameson%2C_J._Jonah), but made her the perfect choice to be WOMAN magazine’s editor.
Just as Carol was beginning this new chapter of her life, the powers and persona of Ms. Marvel began to emerge. At first, Carol experienced blackouts triggered by Ms. Marvel’s precognitive seventh sense and the two personas were very distinct, both mentally and physically. As time went on and Carol came to accept her new role as Ms. Marvel, the two personalities merged. A second exposure to the energies of a Kree Psyche-Magnetron also imbued Ms. Marvel with some of the properties which formally resided in her Kree uniform (namely flight and the ability to change into costume at will).
Carol fought many villains during her career as Ms. Marvel, including Deathbird (http://marvel.com/universe/Deathbird), MODOK (http://marvel.com/universe/MODOK), A.I.M. (http://marvel.com/universe/A.I.M.), the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants (http://marvel.com/universe/Brotherhood_of_Mutants), the Hellfire Club, and Mystique (http://marvel.com/universe/Mystique). She also joined the Avengers (http://marvel.com/universe/Avengers) for a brief period, and it was this affiliation which drew Carol to the attention of Marcus (http://marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Marcus&action=edit). The son of Immortus (http://marvel.com/universe/Immortus), Marcus observed the Avengers from afar and became obsessed with Ms. Marvel. Marcus kidnapped Carol using Immortus' technology to manipulate her mind and seduce her into loving him. Marcus impregnated Carol with a child who would rapidly grow up into Marcus himself, enabling him to escape Limbo (http://marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Limbo&action=edit). He returned Carol to the Avengers, unaware of her time and seduction in Limbo. Carol was shocked when she learned that she was pregnant and devastated since she was completely unaware of the identity of the father. The pregnancy ran its course in a matter of days, leaving Carol shaken - both as a woman and a hero. The child grew within a day into a full-grown man, one who was determined to win his "mother’s" love. Carol, still bewildered by the entire experience, agreed to accompany Marcus back to Limbo. The Avengers wished the pair well. In Limbo, Marcus continued to age rapidly and quickly died of old age, leaving Carol alone in Limbo and free of his mind control. Carol was sickened by Marcus' manipulations and felt betrayed by the Avengers who failed to question Marcus` actions or motives.
Carol mastered Immortus' technology and returned to Earth, choosing to settle in San Francisco instead of returning to the Avengers. Carol’s return to Earth was sensed by the precognitive Destiny (http://marvel.com/universe/Destiny_%28Irene_Adler%29). Destiny had previously prophesied that Ms. Marvel would be involved in an event that would destroy the life of Mystique's foster daughter, Rogue (http://marvel.com/universe/Rogue). Mystique had vowed to destroy Ms. Marvel before this could happen and developed an obsessive hatred for Ms. Marvel. Rogue, overhearing Destiny’s concerns and Mystique's ranting, decided to take the battle to Carol herself. Rogue attacked Carol in San Francisco and the pair fought atop the Golden Gate Bridge. When Rogue tried to use her power-absorbing abilities on Carol, something went terribly wrong, and she absorbed too much of Carol’s persona, making the transferal permanent. Driven mad by Carol’s thoughts and memories, Rogue threw Carol’s body from the bridge. Amazingly, Carol was rescued by Spider-Woman (http://marvel.com/universe/Spider-Woman_%28Jessica_Drew%29). At the hospital, Carol was identified and diagnosed as a tabula rasa - a blank slate. Jessica Drew called in Professor Xavier (http://marvel.com/universe/Professor_X) of the X-Men (http://marvel.com/universe/X-Men), who was able to pull forth Carol’s memories and personality from her subconscious. However, he was unable to restore her emotional connection to those memories and experiences. Carol and Jessica spent some time at the X-Mansion while Carol recovered from her ordeal.
During this time, a now-powerless Carol confronted the Avengers and vented her anger for their betrayal of her. Carol remained with the X-Men for a brief time, during which she often accompanied them on missions. One such mission led to Carol’s capture by the alien Brood (http://marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Brood&action=edit). Fascinated by her Kree/Human physiology, the Brood performed experiments on Carol’s genetic structure. This unleashed the full potential of Carol’s Kree/Human physiology transforming her into the cosmic-powered Binary. Carol now possessed more power than ever due to her link to a white hole.
Carol returned with the X-Men and was strongly considering joining them on a permanent basis when the desperately troubled Rogue came to Xavier for help. Upon seeing Rogue, Carol flew into a rage and punched her into orbit. The X-Men reluctantly informed Carol that Xavier had allowed Rogue to join the X-Men. Unable to accept this, Carol opted to join the space pirates known as the Starjammers (http://marvel.com/universe/Starjammers) and to leave her troubles on Earth behind. As Binary, Carol was a valued member of the Starjammers and fought alongside them to restore Lilandra (http://marvel.com/universe/Lilandra) to the Shi'ar (http://marvel.com/universe/Shi%27ar) throne. In space, Carol was able to escape her loss and rebuild her life. The stars were her escape and offered her a whole universe in which to escape the emptiness her former life represented. Carol remained with the Starjammers for a number of years. During this time, she lived out her lifelong dream of exploring the stars. She formed a close friendship with Raza Longknife (http://marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Raza&action=edit), the sullen cyborg member of the Starjammers. Despite fighting the Shi'ar forces and her former enemy Deathbird, Carol found herself frustrated at the lack of challenge among the Starjammers' adversaries. When Earth's sun was threatened, Carol chose to abandon her mission for the Shi'ar Majestrix Lilandra Neramani and aid the Avenger Quasar (http://marvel.com/universe/Quasar_%28Wendell_Vaughn%29) in saving it. This effort left Carol in a depleted state, and she spent months recuperating at the Avengers Mansion (http://marvel.com/universe/Avengers_Mansion). During this time, she reconciled with the Avengers. When the Starjammers came to Earth and into conflict with the Avengers, Carol helped resolve the conflict and decided to try and rebuild her life on Earth.
Recently, Carol rechristened herself Warbird and rejoined the Avengers, following a reality-warping conflict with Morgan Le Fay (http://marvel.com/universe/Morgan_Le_Fay). She brought with her a whole new set of problems. First, her powers were slowly depleting, and she attempted to hide this fact from the Avengers, leading to a conflict with Captain America (http://marvel.com/universe/Captain_America_%28Steve_Rogers%29). Carol had also developed a drinking problem, which was immediately noticed by recovering alcoholic and fellow Avenger, Iron Man (http://marvel.com/universe/Iron_Man_%28Anthony_Stark%29). Her drinking, coupled with her determination to prove herself a worthy addition to the Avengers and her secretiveness about her power loss, led to reckless grand-standing and sloppy teamwork. This eventually endangered the lives of her teammates and led to a formal court-martial before her fellow Avengers. Rather than face her problems and a forced demotion to reserve status, Carol quit the team. This all occurred amidst the Avengers' conflict with a rebel faction of Kree. Seeking to join the battle despite leaving the team, Carol realized that she no longer had the capability to reach escape velocity in order to join the battle on the Moon between the Avengers and the Kree Lunatic Legion (http://marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Lunatic_Legion&action=edit).
Disheartened, Carol realized that she’d hit rock bottom, and moved to Seattle to work on rebuilding her career as a freelance writer and novelist. She started to make some progress in accepting her alcoholism but refused to accept that she had a serious problem for months. After her drinking almost led to disaster in a number of combat situations, Carol was hospitalized for alcohol poisoning. Carol’s doctor warned that she had done considerable damage to her internal organs and that another drink might kill her. This diagnosis combined with the knowledge that she had nearly killed a plane full of people during a drunken rage have forced Carol to admit the severity of her drinking problem. Carol has now accepted that she is an alcoholic and has started attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings on a regular basis. She has since been accepted into the ranks of the Avengers once more and taken the name “Ms. Marvel” once again.
When the Scarlet Witch (http://marvel.com/universe/Scarlet_Witch_%28Wanda_Maximoff%29) warped reality (http://marvel.com/universe/House_of_M), Carol was one of the few people who remembered the events when reality was restored, and she determined to prove her worth as a true hero, something she had experienced during the events. She told this to Captain America when he offered her membership in the new Avengers team, but she declined, feeling unready to join that august assemblage. Cap assured her that a place would always be available to her in the Avengers.

EyesBlue HairBrown (dyed ash blonde) http://marvel.com/universe3zx/images/6/62/Inf_powers.gif (http://marvel.com/universe/Image:Inf_powers.gif) Powers Emma Frost is a mutant who possesses various telepathic talents. Emma can read minds and project her thoughts into the minds of others, project psionic force bolts which have no physical effects but which can affect a victim's mind so as to cause the victim pain or unconsciousness, and can also induce mental pain merely by touching the brow of her victim. Emma can telepathically "sedate" her victims so that, if already rendered unconscious, they remain so for as long as she continues to "sedate" them. It is unknown how effective her "sedating" ability is on victims who are awake. Furthermore, as a consequence of continued mutation, Emma can now transform her skin and hair into a diamond-hard form at will. In this form, Emma is nigh indestructible except for one small flaw that, if exploited, can cause her to shatter. Whilst in her diamond form, Emma's telepathic abilities are suppressed.
Abilities Emma is highly skilled in electronic theory and electronics and has learned how to build devices that can amplify psionic energy and utilize psionic energy for various effects. She devised the mechanism by which her Hellfire Club cohort Mastermind projected his illusions directly into the mind of the Phoenix Force. Weapons Emma once designed a gun-like device which she once used to exchange minds for a period of time with Storm of the X-Men.

Emma Frost was born into a wealthy old Boston mercantile family that arrived from England in the 1600s. The second of three daughters, Emma also had an older brother named Christian (http://marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Frost%2C_Christian&action=edit) who had turned to substance abuse as an escape from the drudgery of his life. Unknown to their family or themselves, the three Frost sisters were mutants whose telepathic abilities matured upon reaching puberty.
When it came time for their father to choose a worthy heir to the family fortune, Christian was automatically dismissed due to his drug problem. Whilst the older sister Adrienne (http://marvel.com/universe/Frost%2C_Adrienne) seemed the most obvious choice, the father chose Emma. Surprisingly, she refused, choosing to make her own way through life.

Emma ultimately inherited a good deal of wealth, but most of her large fortune resulted from her professional success. She ascended rapidly to the upper echelon of the business world on the strength of her intelligence, drive, and personal charm, as well as the secret use of her mental powers. Also, at some point, the Dark Beast (http://marvel.com/universe/Dark_Beast) met Emma, and helped her rise to wealth and power.

Eventually, Emma became majority stockholder of a multibillion-dollar conglomerate principally involved in electronics and transportation - both the building of ships and aircraft, and their use for freight and passenger conveyance. Despite her relative youth, she was named chairwoman of the board and chief executive officer of the rechristened Frost International. She also became headmistress and chairwoman of the board of trustees of the Massachusetts Academy - a college preparatory school for students in grades seven through twelve located in the Berkshire Mountains in Snow Valley, Massachusetts.

Emma's success caught the attention of the Hellfire Club (http://marvel.com/universe/Hellfire_Club), an elite social organization consisting of the world's wealthiest and most powerful figures. When she learned that the club was hiring dancers, she promptly auditioned and used her telepathic talents to enhance her performance in their eyes. Unlike the other females in the Club, Emma was never uncomfortable with the strict dress code that required female members to wear lingerie at all times. She believed her revealing wardrobe to be one of many weapons in her arsenal, one that gave her an instant advantage over men.

Frost quickly became an ally of Sebastian Shaw (http://marvel.com/universe/Shaw%2C_Sebastian), a member of the club's Council of the Chosen who were secretly conspiring to achieve world domination through economic and political means. At the time, the leaders of the club and council - its foremost Lords Cardinal, whose titles corresponded to the names of chess pieces - were White King Edward Buckman (http://marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Edward_Buckman&action=edit) and White Queen Paris Seville (http://marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Paris_Seville&action=edit).

Buckman threw the council's support behind Project: Armageddon (http://marvel.com/universe/Marvel_Universe:Armageddon), scientist Steven Lang's program to construct mutant-hunting Sentinel robots. Aware of Shaw's genetic disposition, Buckman told him the initiative's intent was to capture mutants as a means of helping the council attain power. Using her psionic powers, Emma learned that the project's actual purpose was the annihilation of all genetic deviants. After Shaw's lover, Lourdes Chantel (http://marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Lourdes_Chantel&action=edit), was murdered by one of the Sentinels, Shaw and Frost staged a coup that saw them seize control of the Council of the Chosen, which they renamed the Inner Circle. Shaw took the title of Black King, and Frost became the new White Queen.

Under Shaw and Frost's leadership, mutants dominated the Inner Circle. To strengthen the Club's power base, Emma recruited genetically gifted youngsters and helped them hone their abilities at her school. Most of these students were members of the Hellions (http://marvel.com/universe/Hellions), Emma's first mutant super-team. She initially encountered the outlaw band of heroic mutant adventurers known as the X-Men (http://marvel.com/universe/X-Men) when she unsuccessfully attempted to recruit young Kitty Pryde (http://marvel.com/universe/Pryde%2C_Kitty), the phase-shifting mutant then known as Shadowcat. Subsequently, Emma crossed paths with the X-Men - and their protégés, the New Mutants (http://marvel.com/universe/New_Mutants) - on a number of occasions, often as their adversary. Later, the X-Men joined with the Hellions to protect the White Queen from the time-traveling terrorist named Trevor Fitzroy (http://marvel.com/universe/Trevor_Fitzroy). However, the madman's brutal assault plunged Emma into a deep coma and brought about the Hellions' untimely demise.

Whilst Emma's consciousness still active on the material plane, her body was kept in the med-lab at the X-Men's mansion. Seeking to ensure her students' welfare and the school's future, Emma had willed responsibility for the Massachusetts Academy to Professor Charles Xavier (http://marvel.com/universe/Professor_X), the X-Men's telepathic founder. During her psychic incapacitation, the school was added to the rapidly expanding Xavier Institute. While Emma’s corporeal form was in stasis, a short-circuit in the mansion inadvertently caused her psyche to possess the X-Man named Iceman, whilst his mind was transferred into her body.

Coerced by Professor X, Emma eventually reclaimed her own form. After making a full recovery, she resumed her role as headmistress of the academy. Ably assisted by Sean Cassidy, the sonically empowered former X-Man known as Banshee (http://marvel.com/universe/Banshee), she set out to train a new crop of young mutants: Generation X (http://marvel.com/universe/Generation_X). When the sinking stock market dealt Frost International a major blow, Emma swallowed her pride and sought the help of her older sister, Adrienne, who agreed to support her sibling's flagging financial interests only if she were named co-headmaster. But Adrienne's power play did not wind down when Emma acceded to her request, nor did it end when she supplanted her sister as the Hellfire Club's White Queen. Only after Adrienne telepathically incited a riot at the school did Emma find a way to upset her ascension: the way of the gun. Emma shot and killed her sister, thereby laying claim to Adrienne's inheritance.

Following the dissolution of Generation X and the closure of the Massachusetts Academy, Emma moved to the island nation of Genosha where she began teaching mutant children again. Soon after, a Sentinel attack wiped out Genosha's entire mutant population. Emma was found by the X-Men alive in the rubble, having undergone a secondary mutagenic change that allowed her to survive the onslaught. Following this incident, Emma came to teach at the Xavier Institute, and soon took on the responsibility of personally mentoring the telepathic quintuplets known as the Stepford Cuckoos (http://marvel.com/universe/Stepford_Cuckoos).

Emma later counseled her teammate Cyclops (http://marvel.com/universe/Cyclops_%28Scott_Summers%29) following his possession by the eternal mutant warlord Apocalypse (http://marvel.com/universe/Apocalypse_%28En_Sabah_Nur%29). This soon turned into a telepathic affair between the two which was short-lived after Summers' wife, Jean Grey (http://marvel.com/universe/Phoenix_%28Jean_Grey%29), discovered what was happening.

During the riot at the Xavier Institute, Sophie of the telepathic sisters the Stepford Cuckoos died. The remaining sisters blamed Emma for this and told Jean Grey-Summers of Emma's affair with her husband. When Emma was confronted by Jean, she was forced to relive various moments of her past. Following this confrontation, Emma was shot with a diamond bullet whilst in her diamond form, shattering it. Though she was believed to be dead at first, Emma's consciousness was trapped in her shattered remains. Phoenix discovered this and telekinetically fused Emma's body back together. Upon being reassembled, Emma identified Esme of the Cuckoos as the culprit behind her assassination. However, Esme was working with the X-Man Xorn (http://marvel.com/universe/Xorn), who believed himself to be Magneto at the time, and it was he who shot Emma as she had learned of his dual identity.


Following the death of Jean Grey, Emma has assumed the position of co-headmaster of the Xavier Institute alongside Cyclops.

Echo is able to mimic the fighting styles of others much stronger than herself. Abilities Maya Lopez is an olympic-level athlete. Because of her superhuman (http://marvel.com/universe/Glossary:S#superhuman) powers, she s a highly talented pianist, music composer, artist, ballet dancer, boxer, martial artist, and markswoman. On one occasion piloted a Quinjet for a few minutes. She has also gained Bullseye's (http://marvel.com/universe/Bullseye) uncanny aim and Daredevil's (http://marvel.com/universe/Daredevil_%28Matthew_Murdock%29) acrobatic abilities after watching tapes of their fights. Maya is deaf. Her reliance on visual cues renders her vulnerable in the dark. Since she reads lips, she has difficulty communicating with people who are wearing masks or are not in direct visual contact.
Weapons Echo typically uses a pair of nunchakus and a standard katana blade. She has also used pistols and other weaponry in the past. Paraphernalia As Ronin, Maya wears a specially designed armor which makes her appear to be male and allows her to blend into the shadows.

When she was a small girl, Maya Lopez's father, a Cheyenne gangster, was killed by his partner in crime, the Kingpin. The last wish of her father was that Fisk raise the child well, a wish the Kingpin honored, caring for her as if she was his own. Believed to be mentally handicapped, Maya was sent to an expensive school for people with learning disabilities. There, she managed to completely replicate a song on the piano. After that, she was sent to another expensive school for prodigies. She grew into a gifted and talented woman. Upon visiting her father's grave with Fisk, she asked how he died. Fisk told her that Daredevil had killed him. http://marvel.com/universe3zx/images/e/e6/Echo_border.jpg (http://marvel.com/universe/Image:Echo_border.jpg)
Maya was sent by the Kingpin to Matt Murdock to prove Matt's weakness. He told her that Matt believed he was a bad person, and that she was the only way to prove him wrong. (As Maya believed him, it would not appear to be a lie when she told Matt.) Matt Murdock and Maya soon fell in love. She later took on the guise of Echo, hunting Daredevil down. Having watched videos of Bullseye and Daredevil fighting, she proved more than a match for Daredevil. She took him down and nearly killed him, refusing only when she found out Matt and Daredevil were one and the same. Matt managed to correct the Kingpin's lies. In revenge, Echo confronted Fisk and shot him in the face, blinding him and starting the chain of events that would lead to his eventual downfall. (Kingpin would later partially recover his eyesight through reconstructive eye surgery).
After realizing the horror of her actions and the lies she has grown up with, Maya fled the United States to do some soul-searching. When she came back, she tried reuniting with Matt Murdock, only to find out he was now with a blind woman named Milla Donovan (http://marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Donavan%2C_Milla&action=edit), and that the Kingpin was still alive (despite Maya's attempts to kill him). Leaving Matt, Maya visited the Kingpin in prison, who told her that he didn't blame her for what she did, and that despite all that had happened, he still loved her like a daughter.
Unsatisfied and needing peace, Maya turned to the Chief, her father's old friend, noted for his wisdom. The Chief sent Maya on a Vision Quest to calm her soul. On her quest, she met and befriended Wolverine (http://marvel.com/universe/Wolverine_%28James_Howlett%29) who helped her recover and may be attributed to her picking up Japanese values and knowledge of the Japanese underworld. Soon enough, Echo made peace with her past and was back doing performance art.

Recently, after being unable to join the Avengers (http://marvel.com/universe/Avengers) for personal reasons, Daredevil recommended Maya to Captain America (http://marvel.com/universe/Captain_America_%28Steve_Rogers%29) to help the Avengers seize the Silver Samurai (http://marvel.com/universe/Silver_Samurai) in Japan. She donned a suit that concealed her identity as well as her gender and rechristened herself as Ronin. Maya was instrumental in helping the Avengers defeat Hydra (http://marvel.com/universe/Hydra), the Hand (http://marvel.com/universe/Hand), and Madame Hydra (http://marvel.com/universe/Viper_%28Madame_Hydra%29) after a pitched battle. Ronin then returned to Japan to keep an eye on Elektra Natchios (http://marvel.com/universe/Elektra) and focus on resolving the conflict between the Hand and Clan Yashida (http://marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Clan_Yashida&action=edit).

http://marvel.com/universe3zx/images/b/bc/Inf_physical.gif (http://marvel.com/universe/Image:Inf_physical.gif) Height6'0" Weight175 lbs. EyesBrown HairBlond http://marvel.com/universe3zx/images/6/62/Inf_powers.gif (http://marvel.com/universe/Image:Inf_powers.gif) Powers Havok is a mutant with the superhuman ability to absorb ambient cosmic energy into the cells of his body, transform it in an unknown manner, and release it as waves of energy that heat the air in their path enough to turn it into plasma, which is a super-heated state of matter consisting of charged subatomic particles. These waves will emanate from his body in all directions unless he purposefully tries to channel them in a single direction, usually along the length of his arms. Havok is himself immune to the intense heat he creates, as well as the power blasts generated by his brother Cyclops. Despite past accounts, the energy that Havok releases is not truly a concussive force. When Havok strikes an object with the waves of intensity of hot plasma, the sudden vast jump in temperature will often cause objects to shatter, explode, or seemingly disintegrate, and an observer might therefore wrongly think that the object had been struck by a concussive force. Should Havok direct his energy at the lowest level, he can project it towards a human being and his target will suffer a severe headache but will not burn up.
Havok's body is constantly in the process of absorbing cosmic radiation. When each of his body's power-storage cell enclaves reaches its capacity, excess cosmic energy is thereafter absorbed and immediately re-emitted in negligible quantities. Upon the total expenditure of all his available energy, it takes Havok's body about 16 hours to recharge to its peak level. The act of concentration involved in releasing his energy in anything other than an omnidirectional wave is physically exhausting for Havok if he continues it over an extended period of time.
Abilities Havok is an instinctive tactician and strategist. Weapons
Paraphernalia Havok wears a specially-designed suit to help him regulate and control his powers.

Alexander Summers is the younger of the two sons of Christopher Summers (http://marvel.com/universe/Corsair), a United States Air Force Major and test pilot, and his wife Katherine Anne. The family were flying back from a vacation in their vintage airplane when they crashed into a scout ship of the intergalactic Shi'ar Empire (http://marvel.com/universe/Shi%27ar), setting the wooden plane ablaze. Their mother pushed the brothers out of the burning plane with the only available parachute, allowing them to escape capture by the aliens. The two boys were hospitalized for injuries they sustained during their landing. Alex left the hospital after two weeks and was placed in an orphanage in Omaha, Nebraska that was secretly run by the master geneticist Mister Sinister (http://marvel.com/universe/Mister_Sinister). Alex was soon adopted by the Blanding family, who had lost their son Todd. However, the family were still traumatized by their loss, and treated Alex as if he were Todd. (Unknown to Alex, his brother Scott would become the hero Cyclops (http://marvel.com/universe/Cyclops_%28Scott_Summers%29) and join the X-Men (http://marvel.com/universe/X-Men).)
Sinister continued to monitor Alex whilst he lived with his foster family. When he noticed the first stirrings of Alex's mutant powers, Sinister incited the local school bully Vincent, who had caused Todd's accident, to attack Alex. The subsequent stress caused Alex's mutant powers to manifest and he incinerated Vincent. Sinister then placed a genetic lock upon Alex to curtail the development of his powers.
http://marvel.com/universe3zx/images/3/3a/Havok_inline_1.jpg (http://marvel.com/universe/Image:Havok_inline_1.jpg)
As a result, Alex did not become aware of his mutant abilities until after graduating college. A professor of archaeology named Ahmet Abdol had discovered a psychic link between himself and Alex. While both of them had the latent mutant power to absorb and transform cosmic radiation, Abdol's ability to exercise the power was blocked in an unknown manner by Alex. Abdol captured Alex and took him to his laboratory in Egypt. There, Abdol found a way to screen Alex's body from ambient cosmic radiation, permitting his own body to attain its latent potential. Abdol was transformed into the Living Monolith (http://marvel.com/universe/Living_Monolith), a gigantic mutant with vast cosmic power, but was defeated when his brother and the X-Men came to the rescue. Incapable of controlling the power his body emanated, Alex fled into the Egyptian desert. Alex was soon captured by one of the mutant-hunting robotic Sentinels (http://marvel.com/universe/Sentinels) and brought to the headquarters of Larry Trask (http://marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Trask%2C_Larry&action=edit), son of the Sentinels' inventor Bolivar Trask (http://marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Trask%2C_Bolivar&action=edit). Larry gave Alex the codename Havok and a costume whose chest display monitored the build-up of cosmic energy within him. The X-Men came to Alex’s rescue; however, he was injured in the ensuing battle with the Sentinels and was taken to Doctor Karl Lykos for treatment. Lykos was himself a mutant who fed off the life energies of other mutants, and when he siphoned energy from Alex he transformed for the first time into the flying reptilian creature named Sauron (http://marvel.com/universe/Sauron).
After Sauron was defeated, Alex returned to New York with his brother and his teammates where he joined the X-Men and began training to control his powers. Eventually, Alex gained enough mastery over his power that he would release it only when he wished to do so and could wield his power with enough skill to become a formidable opponent in battle.
During his time with the X-Men, Alex fell in love with his teammate Lorna Dane, the magnetism-manipulating mutant now known as Polaris (http://marvel.com/universe/Polaris). They both served for a time in the X-Men helping to repel the invasion by the alien Z'nox (http://marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Z%27nox&action=edit); however, neither Alex nor Lorna wished to lead a life as an adventurer. They discovered a mutual interest in geophysics and left the X-Men to begin doctoral research in the Diablo mountain range in Arizona.
Their idyllic lifestyle was eventually interrupted when the pair found themselves hunted by the team of superhuman assassins known as the Marauders (http://marvel.com/universe/Marauders_%28mutants%29). Lorna was possessed by the psionic entity known as Malice (http://marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Malice_%28Marauders%29&action=edit), who forced her to attack the X-Men as the Marauders’ leader. Alex, who had rejoined the X-Men, had no choice but to fight his lover.
Later, Alex travelled through the Siege Perilous (http://marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Siege_Perilous&action=edit), a mystic gateway that granted those who passed through it a new lease on life, free of their past baggage. When he reappeared, it was as a member of the Magistrates of the mutant-enslaving island nation of Genosha (http://marvel.com/universe/Genosha). After the X-Men overthrew the Genoshan government, Alex remained behind for a time to ensure the new government wouldn't repeat the mistakes of the former administration. He later accepted an offer to lead the second version of X-Factor (http://marvel.com/universe/X-Factor), a government-funded mutant agency, of which Lorna was a member.
Alex continued to serve with X-Factor until the apparent death of his teammate Jamie Madrox, the Multiple Man (http://marvel.com/universe/Multiple_Man), at the hands of the prophetic mutant named Haven (http://marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Haven&action=edit). Disillusioned, Alex teamed up with the Dark Beast (http://marvel.com/universe/Dark_Beast), an evil doppelganger of the X-Men's Beast (http://marvel.com/universe/Beast) from another timeline, and together they founded a team of mutant terrorists called the Brotherhood of Mutants (http://marvel.com/universe/Brotherhood_of_Mutants). However, Alex had not truly become a villain and had only joined the Brotherhood in order to stop the Dark Beast's sinister plans. After he was aided by the time-travelling Xavier Underground Enforcers (http://marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Xavier_Underground_Enforcers&action=edit) in stopping the Dark Beast, Alex joined them in their quest to stop their apocalyptic future from occurring. Alex was seemingly killed when a time machine created by X.U.E. member Greystone (http://marvel.com/universe/Greystone) exploded, but he was actually shunted into an alternate universe, trading bodies with the Havok of that reality. However, Alex's family and friends all believed him dead.
After adventuring with a team of twisted versions of the heroes he once knew, Alex again seemingly died, but was left floating in a Limbo-like void. On Alex's Earth, a catatonic "John Doe" patient at the Rosy Manor Convalescent Hospital in upstate New York was identified as being Alex Summers by his attending nurse, Annie Ghazikanian (http://marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Ghazikanian%2C_Annie&action=edit). After she contacted the X-Men, Cyclops came to collect his brother, and Annie sought to accompany Alex as she had come to care for him and sought to continue his rehabilitation. http://marvel.com/universe3zx/images/1/19/Havok_inline_2.jpg (http://marvel.com/universe/Image:Havok_inline_2.jpg)
Alex was eventually saved by Annie's young son Carter (http://marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Ghazikanian%2C_Carter&action=edit), who used his fledgling mutant powers to reconnect Alex's consciousness to his body. Seizing the day, Alex's long-time love Lorna asked him to marry her. Somewhat shocked at such a life-altering question so soon after his return, Alex faltered over a reply but his assembled friends and family made the decision for him. However, Alex had fallen in love with Annie, and called off his wedding as Lorna was walking up the aisle. Lorna snapped and attempted to kill both Alex and his newfound love, but she was stopped by Alex's teammate the Juggernaut (http://marvel.com/universe/Juggernaut).
Soon after, the alternate reality Havok's personality resurfaced within Alex, having followed Alex's consciousness back from within the void in which he had been trapped. The team of dimension-hopping mutants known as the Exiles were charged with the task of stopping the evil Havok, and they teamed up with the X-Men to prevent him from killing Carter. The evil consciousness was eventually forced out of Alex's body and sent back into the void where it was destroyed by the Exiles (http://marvel.com/universe/Exiles)' taskmaster, the enigmatic being known as the Timebroker (http://marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Timebroker&action=edit).
Recently, following the Scarlet Witch (http://marvel.com/universe/Scarlet_Witch_%28Wanda_Maximoff%29)'s alteration of reality (http://marvel.com/universe/House_of_M), many mutants were left powerless, including Polaris. She chose to leave the X-Men, and Havok decided to accompany her. During an encounter with the creature called Daap (http://marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Daap&action=edit), Polaris was abducted and Havok returned to the X-Men.

http://www.die3sphaere.de/bilder-galerie/cleavenger/images/witchblade_III.jpg


Witchblade is a comic book (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comic_book) series published by Top Cow Productions (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Top_Cow_Productions), an imprint (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imprint) of Image Comics (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image_Comics), from 1995 until present. The series was created by Top Cow editors Marc Silvestri (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marc_Silvestri) and David Wohl (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Wohl), writer Brian Haberlin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_Haberlin), and artist Michael Turner (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Turner_%28artist%29)
The series previously starred Sara Pezzini (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sara_Pezzini), a tough-as-nails NYPD (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_City_Police_Department) homicide (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homicide) detective (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Detective) who comes into possession of the Witchblade, a supernatural, sentient (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sentient) artifact (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artifact_%28fantasy%29) with immense destructive and protective powers. The weapon has bonded with various women throughout history the most recent being Danielle Baptiste others who have came into contact with the witchblade include Cleopatra (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cleopatra) and Joan of Arc (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joan_of_Arc). Sara struggles to hone the awesome powers of the Witchblade and fend off those with a nefarious interest in it, especially entrepreneur Kenneth Irons (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenneth_Irons). She also struggles to maintain a personal life.
The title was written largely by Christina Z and edited by David Wohl. There have been talks of a reunion[citation needed] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citing_sources), though it is unclear if that will occur.
There have been many spin-off (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spin-off) titles, which place the Witchblade in other times and settings. The character of Sara Pezzini was also featured in crossovers (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fictional_crossover) with characters from other franchises, including Lara Croft (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lara_Croft), JLA (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JLA), and the X-Men (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X-Men)’s Wolverine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolverine_%28comics%29).
Witchblade was adapted into a television movie (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Television_movie) (Witchblade (TV series) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Witchblade_%28TV_series%29)) in 2000 and series (2001-2002), both starring Yancy Butler (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yancy_Butler). The series was moderately successful. An unrelated film may be released in 2007.
The title was also adapted into a Japanese (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japan) anime (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anime) (Witchblade (anime) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Witchblade_%28anime%29)) and a manga (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manga) series in 2004. Each takes place in a futuristic Japan and features a new blade-wielder, with little resemblance to Pezzini or to each other, in the role. there have been two soundtracks to the comic books series (which had a limited print run).

The Witchblade is an intelligent, ancient, and conscious weapon with extra-terrestrial origins and one of thirteen other weapons. It is the offspring of the universe’s opposing aspects, the Darkness (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Darkness_%28comics%29) and the Angelus (the dark and the light). A male aspect created to act as a balance, which must have a female as a host. The Witchblade was found in Greece by Kenneth Irons, but before he found it, it had had many wielders. When not in use, it can look like an ornate, jewel encrusted, right handed gauntlet. When wielded by an unworthy user, that person will lose their arm. It forms a symbiotic relationship with the host, who can hear the Witchblade. When used, it expands across the body of the wielder, shredding clothes and covering the body like an armour. The armour seems subjective depending on the level of threat. Faced against mortals, it will usually generate less armour than when faced against a demon of hell. This armour can form swords, other stabbing weapons, shields, and wings, enabling the wielder to fly. It may also become temperamental if it chooses not to be used. When wielded, it can shoot energy blasts from the hand or sword, fire projectile darts, and whip-like grapples to attack or to climb. The Witchblade is also an excellent lock pick, and can heal wounds, even mortal ones. The Witchblade can re-animate the dead, can empathetically show the wielder scenes of great trauma, and also relive experiences from wielders of the past in dream like experiences.

[edit (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Witchblade&action=edit&section=2)] Top Cow's world

The Top Cow universe is populated by demons, dimensional gates, ghosts and magic. Supers are generally enhanced humans from government, or private entrepreneurial projects. Both the mafia and the Yakuza are prominent forces. Sara’s precinct, 18, or “one eight” is in the roughest part of New York, where murders occur often. There is a reference to a time that no homicides were reported for two days straight, which the precinct took as a sign of the Apocalypse. Religious followers of God and Satan are prolific, with agents of both sides frequently showing up with their minions to do battle.

Main article: Witchblade (TV series) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Witchblade_%28TV_series%29)
Following a pilot film in August 2000, the cable (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cable_television) network TNT (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turner_Network_Television) premiered a television series (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Television_series) based on the comic book series in 2001 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2001_in_television). The series was directed by Ralph Hemecker (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Ralph_Hemecker&action=edit) and written by Marc Silvestri (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marc_Silvestri) (who also wrote the comic book) and J.D. Zeik (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=J.D._Zeik&action=edit). Yancy Butler (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yancy_Butler) starred as Sara Pezzini. Although critically acclaimed and popular with audiences, it was cancelled in September 2002.[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Witchblade#_note-EOnline-WitchbladeCancelled) Announced as a production decision, the cancellation nevertheless provoked widespread speculation that the true reason was Butler's alcoholism. Butler was ordered to enter rehab for alcoholism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alcoholism) a year later, after being arrested for wandering drunk amidst traffic.[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Witchblade#_note-EOnline-ButlerRehab)
Witchblade ran for two seasons on TNT, each featuring 12 episodes. The first episode aired on June 12 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/June_12), 2001 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2001), and the last episode aired on August 26 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/August_26), 2002 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2002). A movie version is said to be released in 2007 and is in production.[3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Witchblade#_note-IMDB-Witchblade2007)

Masane Amaha of the Witchblade anime series.


In 2004 Japanese (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japan) animation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animation) studio GONZO (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GONZO) announced an anime (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anime) version of Witchblade, with a subsequent manga (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manga) adaptation. The anime version is considered controversial by some due to the fact that GONZO has announced that the main character (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fictional_character) of the anime is of Japanese ethnicity but is not Itagaki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Itagaki), one of the previous bearers of the Witchblade. Instead it is a new character named Masane. This has caused some fans to cry out against what they see as a Nipponisation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nipponisation) of the franchise. The fact is this series sets up an entire new story, with all new characters, and is considered canon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon_%28fiction%29).[4] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Witchblade#_note-ANN-WitchbladeAnnouncedCanon)
The anime series began broadcast during April 2006 and ran for 24 episodes (a standard series run). The lead character (and new blade wielder) is the kind-hearted Masane who, despite her good intentions, is fairly clumsy and not good around the house. After the events of an earthquake that struck her home 6 years before the series "year zero", Masane has no recollection of her past previous to this date. When she comes into contact with the Witchblade, Masane also finds herself under the watchful eye of an organization called the NSWF (National Scientific Welfare Foundation), and struggles to hold onto her daughter Rihoko, whom the government is trying to take from her.

[edit (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Witchblade&action=edit&section=5)] Manga

Likewise, one manga (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manga) incarnation is being serialized, introducing a different story that features a unique plot & characters and with little similarities (except for the Witchblade and some other settings) with the anime, though the script is written by the same writer Yasuko Kobayashi (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Yasuko_Kobayashi&action=edit) (小林靖子 (http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E5%B0%8F%E6%9E%97%E9%9D%96%E5%AD%90)).

[edit (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Witchblade&action=edit&section=6)] Witchblade Takeru

This story[5] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Witchblade#_note-0) introduces Takeru who is an average Japanese highschool girl raised in a Buddhist convent by nuns. She has been experiencing reoccurring nightmares about the Witchblade calling out to her. This is due to the secret that the temple houses within, the Witchblade sealed inside a box. Furthermore, her lineage keeps an unknown connection with the mystic artifact and the folklore of the Oni (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oni_%28mythology%29), hence explaining Takeru's strong attraction to the gauntlet which is locally called Oni no te (鬼の手, "Hand of Oni"). Ultimately, Takeru's life suffers a drastic change when she becomes the next bearer of the Witchblade due to some circumstances that force her to randomly encounter it.
Witchblade Takeru started serial run since March 2006 in Champion Red (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Champion_Red&action=edit) magazine under publisher Akita Shoten (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akita_Shoten). Story by Kobayashi Yasuko with art made by Sumita Kazasa, whose art and illustrations carry over an erotic style.
Moreover, at a press conference, Bandai Entertainment (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandai_Entertainment) entered an agreement with Top Cow Productions to release an English language version of the manga. In spite of its violent and erotic content, Bandai Entertainment stated that they won't be censoring the manga.

The main protagonist is a sickly 15-year-old Okinawan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Okinawa) girl, Yuri Miyazono, who wields the Witchblade for her own survival. Not much specific details have been disclosed regarding the date and time when this novel takes place, besides the postscript has explained it happens in the same timeline as the anime. It says that Yuri is the bearer who immediately precedes Masane Amaha. It also says she is the immediate successor of Takeru Ibaraki.

A parody of the the witchblade, called the "Doucheblade" appears in Howard the Duck (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Howard_the_Duck) volume 2 issue 3, which was published under marvel comics (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marvel_comics)' MAX (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MAX_%28comics%29) imprint. The Doucheblade endows the wielder with revealing and spikey armor just like the witchblade, but also tremendously augments her bust size. The Doucheblade's metal component is uranium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium), however. The first wielder died of radiation poisoning, but the uranium appears to have become depleted, since its most recent user was Eleanor Roosevelt (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eleanor_Roosevelt). It originally started to bond with a police woman named Suzi Pazuzu, but after a timely intervention by Dr. Bong (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dr._Bong) bonded to Howard instead, who's DNA was unstable at the time, causing him to spontaneously change genders.

During a time when Steve Rogers (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Captain_America_%28Steve_Rogers%29) learned of corruption in the White House he had become disillusioned and retired as Captain America. The public would soon know about Captain America’s retirement which led to various men trying to become the new Captain America. Roscoe searched out Steve Rogers, whom he knew to be a good gymnast, in hopes to get some training. Roscoe met the Falcon (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Falcon_%28Sam_Wilson%29) instead of Rogers, who told him he was dreaming if he thought he could be the new Captain America. Refusing to give up, Roscoe donned a Captain America costume and called himself the new Captain America. He followed Falcon to prove to him that he could be the new Captain America, only to be scared off when Peggy Carter had mistaken him for the real Captain America.
In hope to persuade Roscoe that he wasn’t cut out to be Captain America, the Falcon took him out patrolling the city in hopes that he would learn that he didn’t have what it takes to be Captain America. The two happened across a group of three costumed men breaking into a nearby bank. The Falcon tried to convince Roscoe to take it slow, but Roscoe rushed into battle. Roscoe and the Falcon managed to defeat the three men and the Falcon began to believe that Roscoe could actually make it as a crime-fighter. However, moments later a hooded man entered the bank revealing himself to be the Red Skull (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Red_Skull_%28Johann_Shmidt%29). The Red Skull captured both Roscoe and the Falcon. Upon learning that Roscoe was not “his” Captain America, he became enraged and killed Roscoe. The Red Skull beat the Falcon severely and left the both of them on a rooftop as a warning for the real Captain America.

Turpin rushed to help the man only to find out that the two men were part of a gang known as the Road Runners. The Road Runners quickly overpowered Turpin, leaving him beaten badly in the street. Turpin quickly decided that being Captain America was not for him and quit.

Powers Captain America represented the pinnacle of human physical perfection. He experienced a time when he was augmented to superhuman levels, but generally performed just below superhuman levels for most of his career. Captain America had a very high intelligence as well as agility, strength, speed, endurance, and reaction time superior to any Olympic athlete who ever competed. The Super-Soldier formula that he had metabolized had enhanced all of his bodily functions to the peak of human efficiency. Most notably, his body eliminates the excessive build-up of fatigue-producing poisons in his muscles, granting him phenomenal endurance. Abilities Captain America had mastered the martial arts of American-style boxing and judo, and had combined these disciplines with his own unique hand-to-hand style of combat. He had also shown skill and knowledge of a number of other martial arts. He engaged in a daily regimen of rigorous exercise (including aerobics, weight lifting, gymnastics, and simulated combat) to keep himself in peak condition. Captain America was one of the finest human combatants Earth had ever known. Weapons Captain America's only weapon was his shield, a concave disk 2.5 feet in diameter, weighing 12 pounds. It is made of a unique Vibranium (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Glossary:V#Vibranium)-metal alloy that has never been duplicated. The shield was cast by American metallurgist Dr. Myron MacLain, who was contracted by the U.S. government to create an impenetrable substance to use for tanks during World War II. MacLain was never able to duplicate the process due to his inability to identify a still unknown factor that played a role in it. The shield was awarded to Captain America by the government several months after the beginning of his career. The shield has great aerodynamic properties: it is able to slice through the air with minimal wind resistance and deflection of path. Its great overall resilience, combined with its natural concentric stiffness, enables it to rebound from objects with minimal loss of angular momentum. It is virtually indestructible: it is resistant to penetration, temperature extremes, and the entire electromagnetic spectrum of radiation. The only way it can be damaged in any way is by tampering with its molecular bonding.

Early Years and World War II

Steve Rogers was a scrawny fine arts student specializing in industrialization in the 1940's before America entered World War II. He attempted to enlist in the army only to be turned away due to his poor constitution. A U.S. officer offered Rogers an alternative way to serve his country by being a test subject in project, Operation: Rebirth, a top secret defense research project designed to create physically superior soldiers. Rogers accepted and after a rigorous physical and combat training and selection process was selected as the first test subject. He was given injections and oral ingestion of the formula dubbed the "Super Soldier Serum" developed by the scientist Dr. Abraham Erskine. Rogers was then exposed to a controlled burst of "Vita-Rays" that activated and stabilized the chemicals in his system. The process successfully altered his physiology from its frail state to the maximum of human efficiency, including greatly enhanced musculature and reflexes.
http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/7/73/CAP_inline.jpg (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:CAP_inline.jpg)
After the assassination of Dr. Erskine. Roger was re-imagined as a superhero who served both as a counter-intelligence agent and a propaganda symbol to counter Nazi Germany's head of terrorist operations, the Red Skull (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Red_Skull_%28Johann_Shmidt%29). Rogers was given a costume modeled after the American flag, a bulletproof shield, a personal sidearm and the codename Captain America. He was also given a cover identity as a clumsy infantry private at Camp LeHigh in Virginia. Barely out of his teens himself, Rogers made friends with the teenage camp mascot, James Buchanan "Bucky" Barnes (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Winter_Soldier). Barnes accidentally learned of Rogers' dual identity and offered to keep the secret if he could become Captain America's sidekick. Rogers agreed, and trained Barnes. Roger met President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who presented him with a new shield made from a chance mixture of iron, Vibranium (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Glossary:V#Vibranium) and an unknown catalyst. Throughout World War II, Captain America and Bucky fought the Nazi menace both on their own and as members of the superhero team the Invaders (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Invaders), which after the war evolved into the All-Winners Squad (http://www.marvel.com/universe/All-Winners_Squad). In the closing days of World War II in 1945, Captain America and Bucky tried to stop the villainous Baron Zemo (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Baron_Zemo_%28Heinrich%29) from destroying an experimental drone plane. Zemo launched the plane with an armed explosive device on it, with Rogers and Barnes in hot pursuit. They reached the plane just before it took off, but when Bucky tried to defuse the bomb, it exploded in mid-air. The young man was believed killed, and Rogers was hurled into the freezing waters of either the North Atlantic. Neither his body or Bucky's were found, and both were presumed dead.

http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/a/a8/CAP_inline_2.jpg (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:CAP_inline_2.jpg)
The Avengers (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Avengers) discovered Rogers' body in the North Atlantic, his costume under his soldier's uniform and still carrying his shield. Rogers had been preserved in a block of ice since 1945, which melted after the block was thrown back into the ocean by an enraged Sub-Mariner (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Sub-Mariner). When Rogers revived, he related his last, failed mission in the closing days of the war. Rogers accepted membership in the Avengers, and although he soon adjusted to modern times well enough to eventually assume leadership of the team, he was plagued by guilt for not being able to prevent Bucky's death. He also undertook missions for the national security agency S.H.I.E.L.D. (http://www.marvel.com/universe/S.H.I.E.L.D.), which was commanded by his old war comrade Nick Fury (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Fury%2C_Nick). Rogers established a residence in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York and has discovered that Bucky had been held in suspended animation throughout the Cold War performing assassinations as the Winter Soldier (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Winter_Soldier). Civil War

Recent events have been tumultuous for Captain America. As the passage of the the Superhuman Registration Act drew near, Maria Hill (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Hill%2C_Maria&action=edit) (the leader of S.H.I.E.L.D.) propositioned Rogers and the Avengers to join S.H.I.E.L.D. in enforcing the act. When he refused, Hill had her trained "Superhuman Response Unit" attack him. During the scuffle Rogers avoided being tranquilized and managed to escape by lodging his shield in an aircraft and forcing the pilot to fly him to safety. Soon after, at the Baxter Building (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Baxter_Building) the Watcher (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Uatu_The_Watcher) told the heroes who had gathered there about the Captain's escape. Captain America soon became the de facto leader of the Secret Avengers (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Secret_Avengers), heroes fighting against the registration act, much to the consternation of his erstwhile friend Iron Man. While the two made sporadic attempts to reconcile during the Civil War, the clashes between their respective teams became more and more heated, ultimately leading to a pitched battle in the middle of New York City. At the end of the battle, as Cap was about to deliver a finishing blow to Iron Man, he was tackled by several emergency workers. Realizing the damage the war was doing to the city and its civilian population, Captain America unmasked and surrendered as Steve Rogers.
The Death of Captain America

On his way to an arraignment at the Federal Courthouse in New York City, Captain America was shot in the right shoulder by a sniper's bullet. Several subsequent shots were fired point blank at Rogers by Sharon Carter, brainwashed by Dr. Faustus who was allied with the Red Skull. Sharon, unaware of her actions and concealed by the crowd during the shooting, escorted Rogers to the hospital while the Falcon (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Falcon_%28Sam_Wilson%29) and the Winter Soldier subdued the sniper, Crossbones (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Crossbones) (Brock Rumlow). Captain America was pronounced dead on arrival at Mercy Hospital. Sharon's memory was restored by a keyword spoken by the Red Skull's daughter, Sin (Sinthia Shmidt).

Judge dredd
http://www.evolvedgames.com/images/cover-dreddA.jpg
http://www.evolvedgames.com/images/dredd-11%5B1%5D.jpg
Judge Joe Dredd is a comics (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comics) character whose strip in the British (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_comics) science fiction (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Science_fiction) anthology 2000 AD (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2000_AD_%28comic%29) is the magazine's longest running (having been featured there since its second issue in 1977 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1977_in_comics)). Dredd is a law enforcement officer in a violent city of the future where uniformed Judges combine the powers of police, judge, jury and executioner. Dredd and his fellow Judges are empowered to arrest, sentence and even execute criminals on the spot. He was created by writer John Wagner (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Wagner) and artist Carlos Ezquerra (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlos_Ezquerra), although editor Pat Mills (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pat_Mills) also deserves some credit for his early development.
Judge Dredd is amongst Britain (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Kingdom)'s best known home-grown comic book characters. His name is sometimes invoked to describe politicians or police who overstep their powers, most recently by Shami Chakrabarti (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shami_Chakrabarti) of Liberty (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberty_%28pressure_group%29).

[edit (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Judge_Dredd&action=edit&section=1)] Publication history

When Pat Mills was developing 2000 AD, he brought in his former writing partner, John Wagner, to develop characters. Wagner had written various Dirty Harry (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dirty_Harry)-style "tough cop" stories for other titles, and suggested a character who took that concept to its logical extreme, imagining an ultra-violent lawman patrolling a future New York City (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_City) with the power to administer instant justice. Mills had developed a horror (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horror_fiction) strip called Judge Dread but abandoned the idea as unsuitable for the new comic, but the name, with minor modification, was adopted by Wagner for his ultimate lawman.
The task of visualising the character was given to Carlos Ezquerra (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlos_Ezquerra), a Spanish (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_people) artist who had worked for Mills before on Battle Picture Weekly (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_Picture_Weekly). Wagner gave Ezquerra an advertisement for the film Death Race 2000 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_Race_2000), showing the character Frankenstein clad in black leather on a motorbike, as a suggestion for what the character should look like. Ezquerra elaborated on this greatly, adding body-armour, zips and chains, which Wagner originally thought over the top. Wagner's initial script was rewritten by Mills and drawn up by Ezquerra, but when the art came back a rethink was necessary. The hardware and cityscapes Ezquerra had drawn were far more futuristic than the near-future setting originally intended, but Mills decided to run with it and set the strip further into the future.
By this stage, however, Wagner had quit, disillusioned that a proposed buy-out (which would have given him and Mills a greater financial stake in the comic) had fallen through. Mills was reluctant to lose Judge Dredd and farmed the strip out to a variety of freelance writers, hoping to develop it further. Their scripts were given to a variety of artists as Mills tried to find a strip which would provide a good introduction to the character, all of which meant that Dredd would not be ready for 2000 AD's first issue, launched in February 1977. The original launch story written by Wagner and drawn by Ezquerra was finally published several years later in an annual.
The story chosen to introduce the character was submitted by Peter Harris, extensively re-written by Mills, and including an idea suggested by sub-editor Kelvin Gosnell. It was drawn by newcomer Mike McMahon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_McMahon_%28comics%29). In it, Dredd brought to justice a criminal who had murdered another Judge and was hiding out in the ruins of the Empire State Building (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empire_State_Building). The story introduced the motifs that would mark out Dredd: novel future crimes are resolved by hi-tech police procedure, with Dredd delivering a severe punishment. In this case, the villain is banished to a penal colony located on a traffic island. The strip debuted in prog 2, but Ezquerra, angry that another artist had drawn the first published strip, quit and returned to work for Battle. Wagner, however, soon swallowed his pride and returned to the character, starting in prog 9. His "Robot Wars" storyline was drawn by a rotating team of artists, including McMahon, Ezquerra, Ron Turner (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ron_Turner_%28artist%29) and Ian Gibson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ian_Gibson_%28artist%29), and marked the point where Dredd became the most popular character in the comic, a position he has rarely relinquished. Dredd's city, which now covered most of North America's east coast, became known as Mega-City One (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mega-City_One).
The character has appeared in almost every issue since, the bulk of the stories written by Wagner (between 1980 and 1988, in collaboration with Alan Grant (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Grant)). Other illustrators of the strip have included Brian Bolland (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_Bolland), Ron Smith (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ron_Smith_%28artist%29), Steve Dillon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Dillon) and Cam Kennedy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cam_Kennedy).
Since 1990 Dredd has also headlined his own title, the Judge Dredd Megazine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_Dredd_Megazine). With Wagner concentrating his energies there, the Dredd strip in 2000 AD was left to younger writers such as Garth Ennis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garth_Ennis), Mark Millar (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Millar), Grant Morrison (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grant_Morrison) and John Smith (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Smith_%28comics%29). Their efforts were not popular with fans, and sales fell. Wagner returned to writing the character full-time in 1997. Recently, many strips have been written by Gordon Rennie (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordon_Rennie), and in interviews Rennie and Wagner have indicated that there is a plan for Wagner to retire once Rennie has established himself.

[edit (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Judge_Dredd&action=edit&section=2)] Fictional character biography

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/0/0e/Judge_dredd.png (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Judge_dredd.png) Judge Dredd from his first story, as drawn by Mike McMahon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_McMahon_%28comics%29)


Joe Dredd, one of a number of clones (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloning) of Chief Judge Eustace Fargo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chief_Judge_Fargo), is the most famous of the elite corps of Judges (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_%282000_AD%29) that run Mega-City One (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mega-City_One) with the power not only to enforce the law, but also to instantly sentence offenders – and (if necessary) execute them. Dredd has a large, computer-driven "Lawmaster" motorbike, which mounts powerful cannons, and has full artificial intelligence (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artificial_intelligence), and is capable of responding to orders from the Judge and driving itself. It is also connected to the Justice Department who can receive and transmit information from and to the bike and is equipped with a video communication system. He also has a "Lawgiver (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lawgiver)" handgun (DNA-coded to recognize his palm-print alone) that fires six types of bullets; a daystick (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nightstick); a bootknife; and, a uniform with a helmet that obscures all of his face except his mouth and jaw. His entire face is never shown in the strip. In an early story written by Mills, Dredd is forced to remove his helmet and the other characters react as if he is disfigured, but the artwork by Massimo Bellardinelli (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Massimo_Bellardinelli) was not satisfactory and Dredd's face was covered by a faux censorship sticker. A frequently used phrase in the series is "I am the Law!" Some see Dredd as a personification of the idea of Law, thus his face cannot be shown because as The Law he transcends any particular form. This is not to say, however, that he is totally inhuman. Throughout the strip he displays emotions (mostly anger) and irony. Another Dredd quote is "Democracy is not for the people", a short sentence containing the Judge's very human opinion of other humans – that they need to be very strictly controlled. However it should be noted that Dredd supported a referendum on the reintroduction of democracy in the story The Devil You Know (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democracy_%28Judge_Dredd_storyline%29#Democracy_Re ferendum). Ironically, when such a referendum was eventually held the result came out strongly in favour of the status quo – rule by the Judges.
As the strip occurs in real time, Dredd is currently more than sixty years old. However, his vitality is explained in the context of the stories with allusions to rejuvenation treatments. For some time, characters in the comic have mentioned that Dredd is not as young and fit as he used to be.
Joe is nicknamed "Old Stoneyface", a name he apparently acquired while still a cadet. More recently, he has become known as the "Old Man"; though not confirmed, Joe is likely the oldest judge still on active street duty, with fifty years of service (2079–2129). Recent stories have confirmed that Dredd is well aware he is living on borrowed time, with his replacements already being lined up. These include clones like Judge Rico (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rico_Dredd#Judge_Rico) and Cadet Dolman (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_minor_characters_in_Judge_Dredd#Dolman), and also other judges like Judge Giant (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_Giant).

[edit (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Judge_Dredd&action=edit&section=3)] Family and Friends

Along with his brother Rico (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rico_Dredd), Joe Dredd is a clone of Fargo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chief_Judge_Fargo), the first chief judge. However, Rico became corrupt and began breaking the law, forcing Dredd to turn him in. Twenty years later Rico returned, seeking revenge. Dredd was forced to kill him in self-defence. In spite of Rico's status as a perp, a wounded Dredd chose to carry him out of the apartment where Rico had died, stating "He ain't heavy, he's my brother (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/He_ain%27t_heavy%2C_he%27s_my_brother)".
Dredd also has a niece, Vienna (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vienna_Dredd), who was fathered by Rico while in jail. Vienna has inherited some of their combat skills, and they have a close relationship (for Dredd). Dredd has gone out of his way to save her on occasion, and they get on relatively well.
Dredd himself has been cloned. One such clone, who adopted Rico's name (but as a surname), is often mistaken for Dredd. Judge Rico (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rico_Dredd#Judge_Rico) eventually inherited Dredd's apartment at Rowdy Yates Block.
Dredd's best friend is probably Judge Giant (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_Giant). They often work together and, Rico II notwithstanding, Giant is seen as Dredd's replacement (though Giant has always acknowledged that that is an impossible task).
For years Dredd had a close but uneasy friendship with Cassandra Anderson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_Anderson) of Psi Division (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psi_Division). This friendship came to an end when Anderson abandoned the law for a short time. Later Dredd denied his friendship with her and claimed that he had merely tolerated her. After battling an alien who claimed to be Satan, Anderson was badly injured. At this point Dredd confirmed to her that they had, indeed, been friends.
Dredd has known Chief Judge Hershey (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_Hershey) for twenty seven years; like all chief judges (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chief_Judge_of_Mega-City_One) since Goodman (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_Goodman), he has easy access to her, but they also have a personal relationship based on mutual respect for each other.
Dredd used to share his flat with a domestic robot (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robot) called Walter the Wobot (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walter_the_Wobot) who performed all his domestic chores. Walter was intensely loyal to Dredd, but Dredd mostly treated him with open disdain. Dredd also had a landlady called Maria. Both Walter and his landlady were kidnapped several times by criminals, and Walter was once destroyed and had to be rebuilt. In later years, Dredd parted company with both Walter and Maria, and eventually left his flat, preferring ten minutes on a sleep machine in the Grand Hall of Justice (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Hall_of_Justice). Maria sank into poverty and eventually died, homeless and alone. Walter tried to set up his own business, but it was shut down by Dredd. Bitterly, he plotted a second Robot Rebellion and actually shot Dredd. As a free robot, Walter was sentenced by Judge Giant to thirty years of imprisonment rather than destruction. Walter later repented, and petitioned Judge Dredd to release him. Dredd agreed, on condition that Walter resume work as a servo-droid, releasing him into the custody and service of Mrs Gunderson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_minor_characters_in_Judge_Dredd#Mrs_Gunder son).
Galen DeMarco (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galen_DeMarco) was a judge who developed an infatuation with Dredd. While Dredd respected her as a judge, he did not reciprocate her feelings, since romantic attachment is prohibited to judges. Her breach of regulations led to her downfall and resignation from the force. Dredd maintained contact with her and tried to help her adjust to civilian life, but when he continued to reject her advances she eventually severed contact.

[edit (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Judge_Dredd&action=edit&section=4)] Dredd's world

The strip is set 122 years in the future. The timeline is worth noting, because the strip appears in real time - thus, as the Dredd strip has been published since 1977, Dredd has aged 30 years as of 2007. The Earth has been badly damaged by a series of international conflicts, much of the planet has turned to desert, and prior to this, populations have tended to aggregate in enormous conurbations (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conurbation) known as 'mega-cities'. The world of Judge Dredd is centred on the megalopolis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megalopolis) of Mega-City One (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mega-City_One). Within Mega-City One, extensive automation (including the creation of a caste of intelligent robots) has rendered the majority of the population jobless. As a consequence, the general population is prone to embracing any fashion that comes along. Much of the remaining world's geography is somewhat vague, although other mega-cities have been referred to and visited in the strip. Mega-City One's population (of 400 million) lives in gigantic tower blocks, each holding some fifty thousand or so people. Each is named after some historical person or TV character (Dredd used to live in the Rowdy Yates (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rowdy_Yates) block); there is usually some very British, ironic joke in the names of the blocks. For instance, Rowdy Yates was a character in the U.S. TV cowboy drama Rawhide (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rawhide_%28TV_series%29), played by a young Clint Eastwood (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clint_Eastwood). Eastwood would later play "Dirty Harry" -- one of the thematic influences upon which Judge Dredd was based. A number of stories feature rivalries between different blocks, on one occasion (recounted in the story "Block Mania (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Block_Mania)") breaking into gunfire wars between them. The Judges' possessing such arbitrary and total powers reflect the difficulty of maintaining any order at all in a Mega-City's stifling environment.
Despite its frequent disasters, Mega-City One stretches from around Boston (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boston%2C_Massachusetts) to Charlotte (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlotte%2C_North_Carolina). Although no date is given in the strip, the Judge Dredd Role-Playing Game (using as its framework the unofficial chronology featured in the 1984 Judge Dredd Annual) cites Mega-City One as being established in 2031. At its height, the city contained a population of about 800 million; the current population is less than half of that. There are two other major population centres in Dredd's Northern America - Mega-City Two (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mega-City_Two) (from around San Diego (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Diego) into Baja California (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baja_California)) and Texas City (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Texas_City_%282000AD%29&action=edit) (formerly Mega-City Three). The centre of the continent is a nuclear desert called the Cursed Earth (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cursed_Earth).
Nuclear deserts and destruction elsewhere are also extensive. In South America (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_America), a new desert extends from Nicaragua (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicaragua), covering Colombia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colombia), Venezuela (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venezuela), Guyana (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guyana), and pushing far into Amazonas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazonas_State%2C_Brazil). Cities in South America (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_America) are Brasília (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bras%C3%ADlia), Ciudad Barranquilla (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ciudad_Barranquilla), and on the western side the Pan-Andes Conurb (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Pan-Andes_Conurb&action=edit) and South-Am City (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=South-Am_City&action=edit). The majority of the Caribbean islands (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caribbean_islands) have been destroyed, and the water there and across much of the north Atlantic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlantic_Ocean) is severely polluted, and is now known as the Black Atlantic (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Black_Atlantic&action=edit).
Europe (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Europe) has suffered considerable reshaping, especially the south. A desert covers much of eastern France (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/France), extending south into Spain (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spain) and Portugal and across to cover much of Central Europe (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Central_Europe). Classical Greece (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greece) is gone, as are parts of Turkey (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkey). The Black Sea (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Sea) and the Caspian Sea (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caspian_Sea) are now joined. In Europe the major cities are Brit-Cit (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brit-Cit) (covering all of southern England (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/England)), Calhab (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Calhab&action=edit) (part of Scotland (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scotland)), Euro-City (eastern France), Vatican City (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vatican_City) (most of Italy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italy)) and Ciudad España (eastern Spain). Ireland (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ireland) is now known as the Emerald Isle, essentially an enormous theme park re-creating a stereotypical (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stereotypical) view of traditional Irish life. Further east into Asia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asia) are more nuclear deserts, the ruins of East-Meg One (destroyed by Dredd in a massive nuclear strike at the climax of the Apocalypse War (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apocalypse_War)), and further east the megalopolis of East-Meg Two.
In Asia, separated from East-Meg Two by an extensive nuclear desert, are Sino-City One and -Two in eastern China (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China), with Hong Tong built in the remains of Hong Kong (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hong_Kong); Hondo City (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hondo_City) on the remains of the islands of Japan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japan); and Indo City (also called Nu-Delhi) in southern India (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/India). Between Hondo and Sino-City lies the Radlands of Ji, a nuclear desert full of chaos magic and many violent outlaw gangs and martial arts schools. Into the Blue Pacific (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pacific) cities survive in south-east Australia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australia), the Sydney (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sydney)-Melbourne (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melbourne) Conurb, and on a number of Pacific islands. Borneo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borneo) has been covered in mutagens, as have all of Indonesia's islands which are now linked by a network of mutant coral; called "The Web", this network of islands is a lawless hotbed of crime.
The Middle East (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Middle_East) is without major cities, being either nuclear or natural deserts; the Mediterranean (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mediterranean) coast is heavily damaged by mutagens. In Africa (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Africa) much of the south is nuclear desert, South Africa (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_Africa) proper has been shattered and is entirely uninhabitable, and the continent is now known as Pan-Africa (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pan-Africa_%282000_AD%29). The major cities are Umur (Libya (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libya)), New Jerusalem (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Jerusalem) (north-east Ethiopia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethiopia)), Luxor City (Egypt (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egypt)) and Simba (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simba) City (Cameroon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cameroon)). Lake Victoria (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Victoria) is enlarged and has been renamed the Kenyatta (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenyatta) Sea.
The high levels of pollution have created instances of mutation in humans and animals. The Mega-Cities largely operate on a system of genetic normalcy making expulsion from the cities the worst punishment possible.
Earth's moon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moon) has been colonised, with a series of large domes forming Luna City (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Luna_City&action=edit). In addition many deep space colonies have been established. Some are loyal to various mega cities while many are independent states. Also the planet Hestia (which is in a polar orbit of the sun that passes near to earths) has a colony, there are some references to colonies on Mars and MC1 is known to have deep space missile silos on Pluto.
Continuity errors have crept into the history at various stages. An example is an early story featuring a mad scientist who experimented with human cloning (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloning) - despite the fact that it had already been revealed that many Judges, including Dredd himself, were clones. The most glaring one is the reference to the penal colony for rogue Judges on Titan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titan_%28moon%29), which is said in the strip at various stages to orbit either Jupiter (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jupiter) or Saturn (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturn) (the latter is correct), seemingly at the whim of the writer at the time.

[edit (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Judge_Dredd&action=edit&section=5)] The Judge system

Main article: Judge (2000 AD) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_%282000_AD%29)
Like current police services, judges once appointed, can be broadly characterized as 'street Judges' (who patrol the city), and administrative or office based judges (who teach at the Academy, or sit in formal positions).
Street Judges act as police, judge, jury and, if necessary, on-the-spot executioner. However, contrary to popular belief, Judges rarely carry out executions, and, in general the death penalty (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_penalty) in Mega-City One is abolished. Numerous writers have used the Judge system to satirize contemporary politics. The judges are, in theory, rendered absolutely incorruptible by the psychological conditioning they receive from a very early age -- although this has been subverted on several occasions to various degrees. One of the worst instances was by the insane Judge Cal (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_Cal) who manipulated his way to the office of Chief Judge (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chief_Judge_of_Mega-City_One). Once he had absolute power, he proceeded to behave much like his namesake Caligula (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caligula), even appointing his pet goldfish as his Deputy Chief Judge. Dredd was the leader of the rebel Judges who overthrew Cal; after Cal's death at the hands of Fergee (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fergee_%28Judge_Dredd_character%29), a dweller of the Mega-City's undercity (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Undercity_%28Judge_Dredd%29), Dredd was offered the job of Chief Judge. He refused it, believing that he was needed far more out on the streets.

However, following the events in Wilderlands (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilderlands) Dredd entered his nomination for Chief Judge as part of an investigation. When the investigation was over he let his nomination stand, eventually losing the vote to Judge Volt (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_Volt).
Various versions of the Judge system hold power in all the Mega-Cities of Dredd's world. There is an international charter which countries and city states join upon instituting a Judge system.

[edit (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Judge_Dredd&action=edit&section=6)] Major Judge Dredd storylines

Spoiler warning (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Spoiler_warning): Plot and/or ending details follow.

2000AD Cover artwork from The Cursed Earth (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Cursed_Earth) storyline, artwork by Mike McMahon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_McMahon_%28comics%29).


There have been a number of Judge Dredd storylines that have either significantly developed the "Dredd mythos" or have been "epic" in scale (i.e., been multi-part stories). Some of these include:

The Robot Wars (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Robot_Wars) The Mega-City judges face an uprising by the city's robot servant workforce, led by carpenter-droid Call-Me-Kenneth (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_minor_characters_in_Judge_Dredd#Call-Me-Kenneth).
The Return of Rico (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rico_Dredd) (prog 30) Joe Dredd's clone brother Rico Dredd (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rico_Dredd) returns from Titan [a penal colony for Judges who themselves have broken the law] seeking revenge.
Luna One (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Luna_One&action=edit) (multiple stories; progs 42-59) Dredd is made Judge Marshall of Mega-City One's Lunar Colony. This story introduced judges from East Meg One (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_Meg_One).
The Cursed Earth (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Cursed_Earth) (progs 61-85) was the writers' take on the basic plot of Roger Zelazny (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Zelazny)'s Damnation Alley (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Damnation_Alley): Dredd, accompanied by punk (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punk_ideology) biker Spikes Harvey Rotten (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spikes_Harvey_Rotten) undertakes an epic journey across the deserts of the Cursed Earth, transporting the vaccine for the deadly virus that is devastating Mega-City Two (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mega-City_Two)'s population.
The Day the Law Died (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_Cal) (progs 89-108) The tyrannical and insane Chief Judge Cal (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_Cal) takes control of Mega-City One, with disastrous consequences for the population. This story introduced the Kleggs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kleggs), a crocodile-like race of interplanetary mercenaries (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercenary).
Judge Death (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_Death) (progs 149-151).The first appearance of both Judge Death, perhaps the Mega-Cities' darkest foe, and Judge Anderson)
The Judge Child (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_Child) (progs 156-181) The space opera (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_opera) style search for the mutant child Owen Krysler, who Mega-City 'pre-cog' Psi-Judge Feyy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psi-Judge_Feyy) has predicted will have the power to save the city from an unspecified future disaster. This story introduced several characters and concepts into the Dredd mythos: Judge Hershey (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_Hershey), The Angel Gang (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Angel_Gang) (including the ever-popular villain Mean Machine Angel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mean_Machine_Angel)), Murd the Oppressor (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murd_the_Oppressor), and the bizarre Jigsaw Disease (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Jigsaw_Disease&action=edit), whose victims literally disappeared piece by piece). Its epilogue (prog 182) introduced future chief judge Judge McGruder (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_McGruder).
Block Mania (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Block_Mania) (progs 236-244) Contamination of water supplies by Orlok the Assassin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sov_Judge_Orlok) leads to all-out war between Mega-City One's many city blocks. This story is a prologue to Apocalypse War.
Apocalypse War (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apocalypse_War) (progs 245-270) Weakened by the effects of Block Mania, Mega-City One is attacked and invaded by the forces of East Meg One (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_Meg_One). Dredd leads the resistance.
City of the Damned (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_of_the_Damned_%28Judge_Dredd_story%29) (progs 393-406) The Judges develop time travel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_travel) technology. Dredd and Anderson travel into the future to discover more about the disaster predicted by Psi-Judge Feyy. However they learn that the Judge Child Owen Krysler has in fact caused the events, rather than preventing them from happening. In a time paradoxical (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_paradox) moment, Dredd meets an undead (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Undead) future version of himself. He also loses his eyes, which are replaced by the bionic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bionic) eyes that he still retains.
Oz (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oz_%28Judge_Dredd_story%29) (progs 545-570) Dredd visits the Australian Mega-City of Oz on the trail of renegade sky-surfer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sky-surfer) Chopper (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chopper_%28Judge_Dredd_character%29). At the same time the Mega-City One Judges are attacked by the Judda (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judda), a 'lost tribe' of judge clones, some of whom share Dredd's bloodline.
The Dead Man (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dead_Man) (prog 650-662) (NB: This was not billed as a 'Judge Dredd' story when it first appeared in 2000 AD.) A mysterious disfigured stranger with no memory wanders the deserts of the Cursed Earth. In the final episode of the story this turns out to be Dredd, who has encountered the Sisters of Death. In this story Dredd is shown throughout without his famous feature-covering helmet, although his face has been badly burned and scarred.
A Letter to Judge Dredd (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democracy_%28Judge_Dredd_storyline%29#.22A_Letter_ to_Judge_Dredd.22) (prog 661) Dredd receives a letter written by a child who has been killed as an indirect result of the Judges' suppression of a pro-democracy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democracy) demonstration, causing him to seriously question the entire ethical basis of the Judge system, and setting in motion the chain of events recounted in the episodes that follow.
Tale of the Dead Man (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democracy_%28Judge_Dredd_storyline%29#.22Tale_of_t he_Dead_Man.22) (progs 662-668) Dredd resigns and takes the Long Walk following his assessment of ex-Judda Cadet Judge Kraken (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_Kraken), and his crisis of faith in the Law that he had always sworn to uphold. This story acts as a prologue to Necropolis.
Necropolis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Necropolis_%28Judge_Dredd_story%29) (progs 669-673 (Countdown to Necropolis) and 674-699 (main story)) Manipulating the confused mind of Judge Kraken, the Sisters of Death are able to use the body of Psi-Judge Agee in order to take control of Mega-City One and create a trans-dimensional bridge enabling The Dark Judges to once again manifest themselves.
The Devil You Know (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democracy_%28Judge_Dredd_storyline%29#Democracy_Re ferendum) and Twilight's Last Gleaming (progs 750-753 and 754-756) The long running tensions between the totalitarian Judge system and the movement for the restoration of democracy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democracy) in the Mega-City at last come to a head.
America (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/America_%28Judge_Dredd_story%29) (Megazine 1.01-1.07) Regarded by many fans as the quintessential Dredd story. In this tale Dredd's philosophy is explored when democracy activists resort to terrorism. This story introduces the tragic characters America Jara and Bennett Beeny, as well as terrorist group Total War.
Judgement on Gotham (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judgement_on_Gotham) (a 'cross-over' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intercompany_crossover) story co-published by DC Comics (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DC_Comics) and Fleetway (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fleetway).) Dredd and Batman (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batman) reluctantly join forces to defeat Judge Death, who has used dimension-jump technology to breach the DC Universe (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DC_Universe) and attack Gotham City (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gotham_City)). This issue was also notable for painted artwork by Simon Bisley (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_Bisley).
Judgement Day (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judgement_Day_%28Judge_Dredd_story%29) (progs 786-799) Sabbat the Necromagus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabbat_the_Necromagus) re-animates the corpses of the dead and uses them to attack the world's Mega-Cities, leading to the deaths of billions. This story includes the teaming of Dredd with Johnny Alpha (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnny_Alpha), a character from another long running 2000 AD comic strip, Strontium Dog (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strontium_Dog). (Dredd and Alpha had however previously crossed paths in an earlier story.)
Mechanismo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mechanismo) After Necropolis and Sabbat's zombies, Mega-City has lost far too many judges. To combat this, the Chief Judge test-runs ten robot judges, with disastrous results.
Inferno (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_Grice#Judge_Dredd:_Inferno) (progs 842 to 853) Escaped rogue Judges from Titan take over the city, forcing the Judges into the Cursed Earth.
Wilderlands (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mechanismo#Plot:_.22Wilderlands.22_story_arc) (progs 891-918 and Megazine 2.57 to 2.67) Dredd is exposed as falsifying evidence to shut down the Mechanismo project and is arrested, while Chief Judge McGruder attempts to remain in power and see Mechanismo implemented despite her failing mental capacities. When a malfunctioning Mechanismo crashes a space cruiser on an alien world in an attempt to kill McGruder, Dredd is forced to take control of the survivors. The mega-epic ended many long-running subplots including the Mechanismo Program and McGruder's second stint as Chief Judge, as well as bringing in Judge Volt (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_Volt), bringing back the Council of Five (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Council_of_Five) and introducing Judge Castillo.
The Pit Dredd takes the job of Sector Chief at Sector 301, an isolated area of the city that has become a dumping ground for corrupt and incompetent judges. Introduced the popular character Judge Galen DeMarco (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galen_DeMarco), the closest thing Dredd has had to a love interest, who would go on to star in her own strip.
The Doomsday Scenario (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nero_Narcos) was the first series to run the same story from different viewpoints concurrently, one in 2000 AD and the other in the Judge Dredd Megazine. One is told from the viewpoint of Galen DeMarco (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galen_DeMarco), now a civilian, as she is caught up in Crime lord Nero Narcos' attempt to take over the city with his army of robots. The other is told from Dredd's viewpoint as he is taken prisoner by Orlok the Assassin and tried by the East Meg One government in exile for his war crimes during the Apocalypse War. Once Dredd escapes (with Anderson's assistance), he secured the help of Brit-Cit in breaking Narcos' control over his robot hordes. The story saw the Judges briefly lose power and Chief Judge Volt committed suicide as a result; Hershey replaced him.
Helter Skelter (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Helter_Skelter_%28Judge_Dredd_stor y%29&action=edit) (progs 1250 to 1261) In an alternative dimension, Judge Cal (see The Day the Law Died) was not defeated by Dredd, and has obtained dimension jump technology from the Dark Judges. He uses this to cause chaos between the dimensions, bringing back many of Dredd's greatest foes from other alternative dimensions, as well as a variety of characters from other 2000 AD stories (including cameos from Halo Jones (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halo_Jones), Rogue Trooper (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rogue_Trooper), D.R. and Quinch (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D.R._and_Quinch) and others). On the verge of the total collapse of all universes (Helter Skelter), Dredd defeats Cal with the help of dimension technician Darien Kenzie.)
Blood Cadets saw the introduction of a new clone of Dredd, who took the name Rico; Blood And Duty saw the return of Dredd's niece Vienna Pasternak (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vienna_Dredd). With Vienna's reintroduction and the new Rico's arrival, Dredd was given a family and several new plot points for future stories, including the Justice Department creating a large number of Dredd clones and Dredd's problems with trying to connect with his niece.
Judge Dredd vs. Aliens (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_Dredd_vs._Aliens) (Prog 2003 annual to 1335) pitted Dredd against the monsters from the Alien (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xenomorph_%28Alien%29) movie series, with mutant terrorist Mister Bones breeding an army of xenomorphs in the Undercity and having them assault the Department of Justice.
Terror and Total War (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democracy_%28Judge_Dredd_storyline%29#Total_War) A pair of stories that deals with the actions of a terrorist cell in Mega-City One. Fanatically dedicated to the democratic cause, Total War smuggles 12 nuclear devices into the vast megalopolis and threaten to detonate them all unless the Judges leave the City. A standard thriller plot made more significant through explorations of Judge Dredd's extended family, including Vienna and a Dredd clone, Nimrod.
Blood Trails (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Blood_Trails_%28Judge_Dredd_story% 29&action=edit), following on from elements of Total War and Gulag (where Dredd led a Judge team to try and free POWs from the Sov block), had a clone of Sov general Kazan try to attack Dredd by targeting Vienna, sending the face-changing assassin Pasha to gain her trust and abduct her. In the aftermath of the story, the Kazan clone was cut loose by East-Meg 2 and claimed political asylum from Mega-City One; Dredd's long-term ally Guthrie was severely injured, losing both legs and an arm and eventually being turned into a cyborg; and both Judges Giant and Rico were severely injured.
Origins (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Origins_%28Judge_Dredd_story%29), is planned to be one of the biggest Judge Dredd storylines of all time. A story called "The Connection" (prog 1500-1504), written by John Wagner (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Wagner) and drawn by Kev Walker (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kev_Walker) kick starts proceedings leading to main "Origins" story line, also written by Wagner and drawn by Dredd's other creator Carlos Ezquerra (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlos_Ezquerra). Wagner had nothing to say about the plot other than in "Origins" we will meet "Joe's mutant relations". According to Matt Smith, editor of 2000 AD: “I think there may be a significant change in how the readers perceive Dredd by the end,” Smith projected. “The story has a real kicker of an ending, and will definitely leave the readers thinking.”

I wasn't joking, that is the punisher, that pic is taken from a feature of what Punisher would look like if he took on the mantle of Captain America, reason is that Punisher had a lot of respect for him and after his death Punisher took it hard, because of this there was talk as to whether he would ever take on the name and costume.

Captain Marvel has always been a torn between worlds, whether due to the bigotry of his alien homeworld, to his entrapment in the Negative Zone, or to his current realization of the call of duty over the knowledge of his fate. Throughout it all, however, he has proven over and over again why many consider him to be one of the greatest heroes of all time. Contents

Visitor from Another Planet

Mar-Vell was a white-skinned minority of the blue-skinned Kree (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Kree) empire, but despite discrimination and prejudice, Mar-Vell became a renowned soldier and an acclaimed hero for his victories in battle against the Kree's enemies, notably the Skrulls (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Skrulls).
http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/thumb/4/4f/MarVellinline1.jpg/180px-MarVellinline1.jpg (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:MarVellinline1.jpg) http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/skins/common/images/magnify-clip.png (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:MarVellinline1.jpg)



Mar-Vell’s regiment, under the command of Yon-Rogg (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Yon-Rogg&action=edit), was given a mission to observe Earth, specifically human’s progress of space travel. Yon-Rogg, jealous of the love between Mar-Vell and the ship’s medic, Una (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Una&action=edit), ordered Mar-Vell to infiltrate Cape Canaveral, Florida, alone. He then secretly tried to fire on Mar-Vell’s ship, but killed a human instead-- Dr. Walter Lawson. Mar-Vell took advantage of resembling Lawson to pose as the doctor and create a secret identity, but Yon-Rogg again secretly tried to kill Mar-Vell by activating the Kree robot, the Sentry (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Sentry_%28Kree%29&action=edit). In his Kree uniform, Mar-Vell publicly defeated the robot, and the onlookers acclaimed him as "Captain Marvel," misinterpreting what the Sentry called him. Mar-Vell continued to observe humanity, in both his secret and costumed identity, growing increasingly sympathetic for Earth and its inhabitants. His initial adventures were typically extensions of Yon-Rogg’s attempts to kill, discredit, or otherwise destroy him, such as the time Yon-Rogg manipulated Ronan the Accuser (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Ronan_the_Accuser) to fight Mar-Vell by framing Captain Marvel as a traitor. Mar-Vell also had to navigate the romantic triangle between him and Una and the aggressive attention of his co-worker at the air base, Carol Danvers (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Ms._Marvel_%28Carol_Danvers%29). These situations came to a head when Una overheard one of Yon-Rogg’s plans to kill Mar-Vell, and she was captured by his agents when she tried to warn him. Although Mar-Vell’s execution failed with the arrival of the Aakon (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Aakon) aliens, she was shot in the battle and died in Mar-Vell’s arms as he tried to rescue her.
[edit (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Template:Bio&action=edit&section=2)]
Metamorphosis

http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/thumb/2/2c/MarVellinline3.jpg/180px-MarVellinline3.jpg (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:MarVellinline3.jpg) http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/skins/common/images/magnify-clip.png (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:MarVellinline3.jpg)



Before Mar-Vell returned to confront Yon-Rogg, he encountered a powerful being named Zo that granted him increased abilities. Around the same time, he ran afoul of Commander Zarek (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Zarek), who hoped to set up Mar-Vell as a traitor. It was he and Ronan that created the illusion of Zo, with which they again manipulated Captain Marvel into thinking he must destroy his home planet Kree-Lar (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Kree-Lar&action=edit). Marvel was made temporarily a fugitive until Zarek and Ronan were uncovered by the Kree’s Supreme Intelligence (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Supreme_Intelligence). The Supreme Intelligence then revealed to Captain Marvel that it knew of Zarek and Ronan’s treachery the entire time and orchestrated events so that Mar-Vell would be involved in their plot as the Intelligence hoped to use Mar-Vell for even greater things. Claiming Captain Marvel had “passed” these tests, he clothed Mar-Vell in a new costume and allowed him to retain some of his new-found abilities. However, as soon as Captain Marvel left to return to Earth, he instead found himself in the extradimensional realm known as the Negative Zone (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Negative_Zone). The Supreme Intelligence then mentally lured the Earth youth Rick Jones (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Jones%2C_Rick) to an abandoned Kree base on Earth in order to bid him to wear the "Nega-Bands (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Nega-Bands)." By slamming the bands together, Jones and Captain Marvel shared a telepathic link as well as, more importantly, switch places between Earth’s universe and the Negative Zone. In no time at all, Captain Marvel was called out by Yon-Rogg, who was holding Carol Danvers as a hostage. In a last-ditch effort to destroy his rival, Yon-Rogg battled the hero, but Captain Marvel rescued Carol and Yon-Rogg was killed in an explosion as they escaped. (The exposure to Yon-Rogg’s weapon, the Psyche-Magnetron, transformed Carol into Ms. Marvel.)
Captain Marvel and Rick Jones continued shared adventures for many months. At one point, Mar-Vell happened upon the idea to use Mister Fantastic (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Mister_Fantastic)’s doorway into the Negative Zone to release Rick and allowing the two to share an existence in the Earth dimension simultaneously. Shortly afterward, both Rick and Marvel were swept up in the intergalactic Kree-Skrull War (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Kree-Skrull_War&action=edit) alongside the Avengers (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Avengers), where Rick encountered the Supreme Intelligence. The Intelligence released the latent psionic potential in Jones’ mind in order to help stop the war, striking all soldiers motionless and teleporting Jones’ allies to the Kree homeworld, among other fantastic feats. Rick was left very near death, and Captain Marvel sacrificed part of his lifeforce to save Jones, “merging atoms” with him so that they could become linked as in their previous relationship.
After many more months and many more adventures, Rick Jones’ body could no longer contain both his own lifeforce and that of Mar-Vell, and he collapsed. His girlfriend Lou Ann Savannah took him to her uncle, who used special photonic energy to revive him, and Jones and Captain Marvel could continue to switch places. In fact, Captain Marvel now found he could absorb solar energy and redirect it to fire energy bolts or to exhibit superhuman strength.
[edit (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Template:Bio&action=edit&section=3)]
Protector of the Universe

When Captain Marvel became involved against the plans of the alien nihilist Thanos (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Thanos), he was contacted by Eon (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Eon), a guardian entity of the universe who commissioned Captain Marvel as the next "Protector of the Universe." He also granted him a special “cosmic awareness.” With a newfound title and purpose, he became the primary force against defeating Thanos. In fact, it was his new cosmic awareness that allowed Captain Marvel and the Avengers to defeat the mad Titan, since it gave him insight into Thanos’ use of the Cosmic Cube (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Cosmic_Cube). Thanos became convinced that he had drained the Cube of its power and discarded it, allowing Captain Marvel to grab the Cube and restore reality to a time before Thanos had gained control over the universe.
http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/images/thumb/4/4f/MarVell02.jpg/180px-MarVell02.jpg (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:MarVell02.jpg) http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/skins/common/images/magnify-clip.png (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:MarVell02.jpg)



As time passed, Mar-Vell and Jones overcame the dimension-split between them, existing side-by-side once more, although often they would need to merge in order to maximize Captain Marvel’s power. They adventured in this manner for a long while. When Commander Zarek returned, he led the Lunatic Legion (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Lunatic_Legion&action=edit), which included transforming a lowly engineer into the villain Nitro (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Nitro_%28Robert_Hunter%29). Nitro was sent to steal canisters of nerve gas when Captain Marvel confronted him. Although Nitro was defeated and Captain Marvel seemed to have re-sealed the canisters before endangering the public, he himself was exposed to the gas, which would later prove disastrous. In a direct conflict with Captain Marvel, Zarek and the Lunatic Legion would have nearly succeeded in bringing him down if it were not for Marvel’s increased powers when merged with Rick Jones. Captain Marvel returned to the Kree homeworld to inform the Supreme Intelligence of the plot, but, surprisingly, the Intelligence revealed its true motives-- that it had known of Zarek’s plan and, in fact, had secretly been a driving force behind nearly all of Captain Marvel’s history. The Supreme Intelligence had long known the Kree had reached an evolutionary dead-end, and its only hope as a species was to integrate other genetically compatible races with its own so as to revitalize the Kree's stagnant development. He had specifically chosen Mar-Vell due to his genetic make-up and had also chosen Rick Jones specifically because of the latent psychic potential he housed. It further arranged to have them both "bond" by means of the Kree Nega-Bands, a process that was repeated or replicated throughout their history, because the Intelligence knew he couldn’t add Jones' brain to its collective organism directly until it was tempered by contact with a Kree brain such as Mar-Vell's. Using the unique Kree-bred flower called the Millennium Bloom (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Millennium_Bloom&action=edit), the Supreme Intelligence then proceeded to try to absorb both Jones' and Mar-Vell's brains, using their bodies as receptacles for its own consciousness in a direct assault against Earth. However, the heroes resisted and managed to escape, and Captain Marvel abandoned the Kree empire permanently.
While back on Earth, Mar-Vell wandered independently for a time. He worked at an observatory, became involved with the Defenders (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Defenders) for a day, and again teamed up with the Avengers against Thanos. Thanos’ corruption of his home, the moon Titan, pitted the Eternals (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Eternals) against the world-computer ISAAC (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=ISAAC&action=edit), and Captain Marvel helped the Eternals restore order. During this time, he fell in love with the Eternal’s Elysius (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Elysius), and they began a relationship that spanned both Titan and Earth and many shared adventures.
[edit (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Template:Bio&action=edit&section=4)]
The Death of Captain Marvel

Ultimately, Captain Marvel’s earlier exposure to the nerve gas proved cancerous, and the cancer turned malignant. Mar-Vell spent his last days on Titan (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Titan), the moon of Saturn, surrounded by Elysius and his friends Mentor (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Mentor_%28Alars%29&action=edit) and Starfox (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Starfox). Many of his allies came to visit him while on his deathbed including the Thing (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Thing_%28Benjamin_Grimm%29), Spider-Man (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Spider-Man_%28Peter_Parker%29), Drax the Destroyer (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Drax_the_Destroyer), and an ambassador of the Skrull empire (the greatest enemies of the Kree Empire) who awarded Mar-Vell with the Skrull medal of valor and stated that Captain Marvel was considered to be the greatest single enemy the Skrull Empire had ever known. He was also granted a posthumous honorary membership in the Avengers, and a monument was erected in his memory on Titan.
His heroic legacy continued first with his son, Genis-Vell (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Photon_%28Genis-Vell%29), conceived by Elysius who impregnated herself with Mar-Vell's cloned DNA, and later Phyla-Vell (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Quasar_%28Phyla-Vell%29), a daughter from an alternate reality whose history became folded into reality after a time warp. Monica Rambeau (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Rambeau%2C_Monica) has also used the alias of Captain Marvel, and Hulking (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Hulking&action=edit) of the Young Avengers has since been revealed to be the son of Captain Marvel and Princess Annelle of the Skrull Empire.
[edit (http://www.marvel.com/universe3zx/index.php?title=Template:Bio&action=edit&section=5)]
The Return

When Tony Stark (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Iron_Man_%28Anthony_Stark%29), Hank Pym (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Yellowjacket_%28Henry_Pym%29), and Reed Richards (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Mister_Fantastic) began construction on a prison within the Negative Zone, their activities caused a wrinkle in space-time. Encountering the wrinkle in the past, Captain Marvel touched it and was transported through time to the Negative Zone in the present day. Initially unsure of how to approach the situation, the heroes revealed Mar-Vell's history to him but also offered him a place in this new future as a warden for their prison, at least until, as the Sentry (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Sentry_%28Robert_Reynolds%29) implicated, Mar-Vell would return to his past. Shaken by the experience and realization of his own fate, Mar-Vell nevertheless took up the Nega Bands once more to serve as Captain Marvel.
