The subjects of the program were granted powers, but at the cost of losing their identity due to a computer chip placed in their brains which made them believe that they were the true Norse pantheon. Boone however was able to avoid getting the chip, and he was transformed into the shapeshifting god of trickery, Loki.

Tony confronts Maya, who confesses to assisting in the crime as she knew it would force defense contractors to renew their funding. She is subsequently taken into custody.[4]

Later, Tony believes Extremis is altering his brain functions so he gets her out of jail to help him. She is placed under his custody.[5] When Sal Kennedy is killed, Maya feels she could have saved him if she had been allowed to continue her research on Extremis. She is unknowingly tricked into giving the Mandarin samples of the virus.[6]

Following the events of Secret Invasion, Maya Hansen disappeared from the series and was not seen again until the relaunch of the Iron Man series during the Marvel NOW! event, where it was revealed that she was kidnapped by A.I.M. to recreate the Extremis serum for them and succeeded.

She is later revealed to be working with Aldrich Killian to improve on Extremis as well as to get back at Tony for breaking her heart thirteen years before.

Hope[edit]

For the first mutant born after the events of House of M and Decimation, see Hope Summers (comics).

Hope (Esperanza Ling) is a fictional mutant in the Marvel Comics universe. She first appeared in Warlock vol 3 #1 and was created by Louise Simonson and Pasqual Ferry.

Hope is the granddaughter of the owner of Ling Industries. The rest of her family was killed by the Phalanx while visiting Switzerland. It was initially assumed that she was protected by a mutant ability of immunity against infections. She was infected by the transmode virus and was infectious to others by touch, but did not suffer the transformation usually associated with the virus. Imprisoned and experimented on by Mainspring research facility, she was later freed by and shortly allied with Warlock.

Ultimately it was discovered that her actual mutant power was not immunity from infection, but transmutation. She could alter the molecular structure of matter she could touch by conscious thought. So she was not actually infectious with the virus (which she had transmuted into harmless matter, hence her not suffering from its effects directly), but had assumed that she was, and her abilities transformed objects she touched into transmode virus infected material. Ultimately she learned she could transmute matter into other materials (such as glass) and so would not spread the transmode infection anymore.

She also is accompanied by her pet monkey, Chi-Chee.

Hope is listed as a potential recruit for the Initiative; however, it is unclear whether she still retains her mutant powers.[13]

Horde[edit]

Horde is the name of two fictional characters and one species.

  • The first Horde was an alien warlord. He had a shard of the Crystal of Ultimate Vision on his forehead, which made him invincible and immortal. Desiring the rest of the crystal, Horde coerced the X-Men to travel to the Citadel of Light and Shadow, where the crystal was hidden. As the X-Men entered, the citadel created illusions of each's most powerful desire. Only Wolverine was able to resist. He reached the crystal, only to discover that Horde had used the X-Men to distract the citadel's defenses. Horde cut Wolverine down, and removed his heart as a trophy. From that act, a lone drop of Logan's blood splattered onto the Crystal, which gave out enough energy for Wolverine to be restored. Empowered to godhood, Wolverine plucked the crystal shard from Horde's forehead, and the tyrant aged and withered to dust in seconds.[14]
  • A species known only as the Horde first appeared in the final issue of Neil Gaiman's The Eternals. They are referred to as "the locusts of the universe", and have been recently drawn to Earth because of the awakening of the Dreaming Celestial. They apparently exist as the anti-thesis of the Celestials, harvesting worlds whose Deviant population become the dominant species. Both the Horde and the Celestials serve the mysterious "Fulcrum", which is the force that governs the ways of the universe.
  • The second being to take the name Horde was a collective being, the result of several citizens (and a dog) of Stoneridge, New Mexico, being fused together after getting caught in the edge of a Gamma radiation dome created by the Leader.[15] The resulting fusion caused the people to go insane, and were convinced by the Leader that the Warbound, who were helping people to escape the dome, were hostile invaders.[16] After the Leader is defeated, Horde joins the Warbound in protecting the remaining citizens of Stoneridge.[volume & issue needed] It possesses a degree of gamma-enhanced strength, enough to fight the Warbound to a standstill. It also possesses a collective intelligence, albeit an unbalanced one, which leaves it highly susceptible to persuasion.

Ned Horrocks[edit]

Ned Horrocks is a fictional character in the Marvel Comics universe. He was created by Chris Claremont and Roger Cruz, and first appeared in Uncanny X-Men #473.

Horrocks was one of Jamie Braddock's best buddies when they were young, together with Amina Synge and Godfrey Calthrop. They disappeared in a sandstorm on the Sahara Desert during a Trans-Sahara Ralye which only Jamie escaped. They were contacted by the First Fallen, and returned years later, trying to reach Jamie to complete the First Fallen plans, fighting the X-Men in the process. The First Fallen take the Foursakens and the X-Men to The Singing City, a "heaven" created by him. It is said that humanity will live on in this new place, but it is soon discovered only four humans will make the cut. All others will not.

In the climactic action, Horrocks attacks the First Fallen. The First Fallen takes retribution and kills Horrocks. The others escape when Jamie sacrifices himself and sends the others back to the 616 universe.
