Father Time (Larry Scott) is a fictional superhero in the Marvel Universe. He was created by writer Stan Lee and artist Al Avison in Captain America Comics #6 (Sept. 1941), published by Marvel predecessor Timely Comics during the period fans and historians call the Golden Age of comic books.
One of future Marvel patriarch Stan Lee's first co-creations, Father Time starred in a backup feature in Captain America Comics #6-12 (Sept. 1941 - March 1942), by which time it was being drawn by Jack Alderman. The feature also appeared in Young Allies Comics #3 (Spring 1942), and Mystic Comics #10 (Aug. 1942).
In 2011 he appeared again in All-Winners Squad: Band of Heroes as a member of the war time team Crazy Sues.
Wearing a hooded cloak and wielding a scythe, Larry Scott seeks to make time work against criminals, rather than in their favor. He becomes Father Time to save his wrongfully accused father from being hanged, but was only seconds too late to prevent his father's death.
Other versions of Father Time
A different, non-superhero Father Time appeared as a character in the Blonde Phantom story "Doomed for Death" in Blonde Phantom Comics #22 (March 1949).
Hawkeye (Clint Barton), the superhero archer of the team the Avengers, disguised himself as an unrelated character named Father Time in the 50th-anniversary issue Captain America #383 (March 1991). Another unrelated character of the same name appears in DC Comics.
Feedback (Albert Louis) is a fictional superhero in the Marvel Universe. He was created by Simon Furman & Pat Broderick, and first appeared in Alpha Flight #118. He is a former member of the superhero team Beta Flight.
Feedback is a mutant with the ability to generate or manipulate bio-electrical fields into various aspects for combat or defense. The full extent of his abilities were never stated due to fact that at the time he was introduced, he was just learning he had powers, but included the creation of protective shields, energy fists, and human-shaped "shock troopers".
The Ferret appeared in six stories during the Golden Age of Comic Books, in Marvel Mystery Comics #4-9. In 2009, he appeared in the Marvel Mystery Comics 70th Anniversary Special and several issues of The Marvels Project, a limited series.
The Ferret aka Leslie Lenrow was a New York City based private investigator. He often consulted with the police on cases. In one case, he worked with Namor, his companion Betty Dean, the Human Torch, his sidekick Toro, the Angel, and Electro and his creator Philo Zog to defeat Nazi Dr. Manyac, his green flame robots, and Project: Blockbuster, a giant version of the green flame robots.
In 1940, during a seemingly routine missing persons case, the Ferret and Nosie tailed a Professor Hamilton to a nondescript brownstone. In reality, Hamilton was a Nazi spy named Albrecht Kerfoot and the brownstone was a meeting place for spies. The Ferret was caught and stabbed in the heart with a dagger. His body was found by the Angel, who adopted his pet ferret and trailed the spies, eventually working with Captain America and Bucky to defeat them.
Fifi the Duck
Fifi was one of the creations of Doctor Bong, who used his Evolvo-Chamber to transform an ordinary duck into his amphropomorphic chambermaid with a French accent. When Howard the Duck is taken prisoner, Fifi goes to comfort him. She explains that Bong plans to use the Evolvo-Chamber to transform Howard into a human being, so he and Fifi could produce offspring to act as Bongs' minions.[volume & issue needed]
After Bong retreats from his castle with Beverly Switzler, Fifi rescues Howard from the Evolvo-Chamber, only to find Howard has been transformed into a man. Fifi agrees to help Howard find Bong provided she is allowed to escape with him.[volume & issue needed] The two head for New York in one of Bongs' aircraft, but are shot down after being mistaken for hostiles. Though Howard survives, Fifi is presumed dead.[volume & issue needed]
However, either Fifi survived the crash or a new Fifi clone was created, as Fifi re-appears, helping Bong to try to make television more educational and caring for several Bong clones created by Beverly. With the help of She-Hulk, Doctor Bong becomes trapped in his machines with no hope of escape.[volume & issue needed] What became of Fifi afterwards is not stated.
Fifi is a gentle creature who is eager to please. She has some feelings for Howard, and like him, has difficulty explaining to the world that she is a real duck and not a human in a costume. Her position with Doctor Bong is uncertain. It is clear that she dislikes her degradation under Bong, but even after a brief rebellion will return to offer her services once again.

Flubber has a unique physiology. His rubbery body can allow him to jump great heights and shape shift into many things. Also he has unusually large hands.
A mutant telepath of fair to high power, Fontanelle does her best work sifting through her subjects' dreams. Whether or not she is limited to that type of telepathic connection is still unclear.
Fontanelle was employed by the New Son to sift through the memories of people close to Gambit, mainly to determine his true role in the Mutant Massacre. After the New Son terminated Fontanelle's services, she began to aid Gambit in piecing together the mysteries of both the New Son and the woman known as the Black Womb, who was Fontanelle's mother. As the Black Womb aka Amanda Mueller is the ancestress or great-great-grandmother of the X-Men Cyclops, Havok and Vulcan, Fontanelle is thus correspondingly their grand-grandaunt.
It is unknown if she still retains her mutant powers after M-Day.

Brandon Cross was a protégé of Hawkeye and Swordsman. He was invited to join the "Dream Team" of new Avengers who were going to become members of A-Next. Donning a Hawkeye-like costume, he assumed the guise of the roguish "Freebooter".
Freebooter quickly displayed a tendency to be a "ladies' man" and poured on the charm for teammate Stinger and found her totally unreceptive to him. Stinger was outraged that new Avengers were being added to the team without her knowledge or permission, and felt no desire to fraternize with the new recruits (especially Freebooter), but in due time Freebooter's fighting skills earned her respect, and his heroic, chivalrous nature her affections. He became a valuable member of the team, but tragedy struck when his close friend and fellow "Dream Teamer" Crimson Curse was killed in the line of duty. Freebooter lost his carefree attitude and became more withdrawn, but he still fought the forces of evil in her honor.
During the events of Last Planet Standing, Freebooter was badly injured, but received help from the former villain Sabreclaw, whom he later convinced to join A-Next while he was recuperating. Freebooter later returns to active Avengers duty.
Freebooter has no powers, but has outstanding swordsmanship skills and is an expert archer. His weapon of choice is a retractable bo staff.
