The character first appeared in Howard the Duck #5 (May 1980).
Within the context of the stories, Captain Americana lives in Shaker Heights, Ohio. He is an insane patriot who believes firmly that America is the worlds' supreme power. He accuses any Non-Americans as an excuse for "polluting the American home", as he describes Howard. His weapons include a variety of guns he keeps loaded around his home, although a majority of these are shotguns.
He wields a shield like that of the Silver Age Captain America, which Magnum can toss at great length and catch it as it ricochets off an object like a wall. His obsession with American ideals is somewhat disturbing, especially as any foreigners he comes to face with is described as a "Pinko Communist" in the captains' dictionary. He also idolizes Senator Joseph McCarthy, and believes in McCarthys' idea that negotiations are just a waste of time. When Howard the Duck asks who McCarthy is (not having heard of him), Captain Americana denounces him as a blasphemer.
Captain Americana still resides in Shaker Heights, living with his three children (Sissy, Billy and Junior Magnum) and his wife, Emily.
Magnus the Sorcerer
Magnus the Sorcerer is a fictional character in the Marvel Universe. He was the mentor of the first Spider-Woman, Jessica Drew. He first appeared in Spider-Woman #2 in May 1978, and was created by Marv Wolfman and Carmine Infantino.

Magnus grew up in the 6th century AD, in the time of King Arthur. Turned down as an apprentice by Merlin, he became the student, and eventually lover, of Morgan Le Fay. He gradually realized that Morgan had turned to hatred and villainy. To stop her, he stole the Book of the Darkhold from her and placed it in a tower which no one with evil intent could enter. After some years of life on the run, Morgan found him and destroyed his body while he was astral projecting, banishing his spirit to the astral plane.
In the 20th-century, the centuries-old sorcerer could possess the bodies of the living. Magnus' spirit took possession of Jonathan Drew and aided the High Evolutionary in organizing the Knights of Wundagore.
Still later, Magnus took the form of a London clothier and gave his aid to Drew's daughter Spider-Woman, assisting her and tutoring her in the ways of civilization. During this time, Morgan Le Fay twice tried to force him into returning the Darkhold to her. Once he felt Spider-Woman no longer needed his help, he left her, abandoning his host body.
Due to her association with Magnus, Spider-Woman had also come into conflict with Morgan Le Fay, and the sorceress took revenge by killing her. Feeling responsible for this, Magnus sacrificed the last of his power to help restore her to life, causing his spirit to finally dissipate.

Manbot (Bernie Lechenay) is a fictional character featured in Marvel Comics publications, notably Alpha Flight. He was created by Steven Seagle and Scott Clark, and first appeared in Alpha Flight vol. 2 #1 (1997).
Manbot is a biomechanical construct working for Canada's Department H and is a member of the Canadian superhero team known as Alpha Flight. He is also acting as a spy for Department H so as to monitor Alpha Flight surreptitiously.
He goes with the senior members of the team to the city of Orloo to investigate worsening weather conditions. He assists them again when the junior members have been brainwashed by the villain Mesmero. During this incident, Sasquatch goes out of control and Manbot restrains him with the M-11 nerve toxin.
Following the disbanding of Alpha Flight, the Box robot invented by Roger Bochs and most recently used by Madison Jeffries was merged with Bernie Lechenay to create Manbot. Manbot had the second team under constant surveillance, controlled by Clarke, the brainwashing, manipulating leader of Alpha Flight. Anything he learns was instantly reported to Department H. He was also a safeguard in case any of the team members went rogue. He was equipped to be able to eliminate any of his team mates should the Department deem it necessary. Manbot rarely spoke and never showed emotion.
Manbot's surveillance cameras were in use when the Alpha Flight team confronts the X-Men. It turns out the team has gone a bit too far distance-wise and Manbot's transmissions go off and on. The team had been manipulated into hunting Wolverine, falsely believing he had murdered Madison Jeffries. After conflict with the X-Men, they temporarily settle their differences through diplomacy.  This encounter is shown through Logan's point of view in the pages of X-Men.
He journeys to the 'Microverse' with the rest of the team and comes under personal attack by the citizens there. After Alpha Flight and the heroic Micronauts save him, his internal systems allow his allies to return him. On the way, he warns Department H is being destroyed.
Manbot helps protect the Department H facilities from being destroyed by the criminal organization known as the 'Zodiac'.
After the death of Clarke, Manbot reveals to Vindicator that he has important information about Clarke. Vindicator is very interested, as it seems to hint at ways the team can discover just what Clarke had done to them in the past.[volume & issue needed]

Max Modell is the head of Horizon Labs, and Peter Parker's latest employer. Horizon Labs develops amazing technology through the innovation and genius of their employees, and handsomely rewards them for their work. Even though Peter has no set schedule, and is able to work on his time, Max nonetheless begins to notice Peter's absence during emergencies - and comes to the most logical conclusion, which he confronts Peter with: that Peter Parker is Spider-Man's go-to guy for technology. Apparently it would stretch the imagination too much to imagine a super hero like Spider-Man also being smart enough to invent the various types of new armor the webcrawler has been sporting of late.

In 1891, after surviving a series of miscarriages, Amanda Mueller was accused of being the Black Womb killer. Her obstetrician was none other than Dr. Milbury, an identity used by Mr Sinister. Mueller was married to Daniel Summers, who left Amanda with their only son because he could not handle the accusations.
Around World War II she was part of a government research project that was gaining research on mutants. Other members included Kurt Marko (father of the Juggernaut and stepfather of Charles Xavier) and Irene Adler (lover of Mystique). Amanda must have had a slowed aging factor as she gave birth to a woman called Fontanelle who was in her early fifties in the early twentieth century.
Amanda headed the Black Womb Project in her later years. In one video she smothered a mutant child for her research.
Amanda has been confirmed as retaining her powers after M-Day. At the time of Mr. Sinister's "death", at the end of the "Messiah Complex" storyline, she sensed his "death" and tried to use it to her advantage and gain his powers. In X-Men Legacy #213 she was shown and right before one of her guards could shoot Charles Xavier, Mr. Sinister took control of his mind, igniting his rebirth after his "death".
Amanda Mueller possess the ability to live forever, immortality. However, she is not immune to the non-lethal effects of aging, including increasingly wrinkled skin and immobility as well as more.
