Gabrielle Haller[edit]

Gabrielle Haller was a catatonic Holocaust survivor who awoke from the disorder after Charles Xavier used his powers to make her aware again. Gabby and Charles fell in love while he saw to her recovery for weeks, with the help of hospital volunteer and their mutual friend, Magnus (the future Magneto). When she is kidnapped by terrorist organization HYDRA, led by the Nazi Baron Strucker, Charles and Magnus used their mutant powers to save her and defeat HYDRA. Immediately afterwards, Magnus left Gabby and Charles feeling that her and Charles' view on mutants and humans contrasted his own. Magnus left with Nazi gold HYDRA wanted to claim.[1]

Over some time, the two amicably ended their relationship. Soon after, Charles leaves Israel unaware that Gabrielle was pregnant. Years later, Gabrielle became the Israeli ambassador to Great Britain living in Paris with her young son David. During a terrorist attack at her home claiming the life of David's godfather Daniel Shomron, David's mutant powers activated, ending with him killing the terrorists and putting himself in a catatonic state.[2] Later, David (who is now in his late teens) developed a disease the comic inaccurately describes as autism, which concerns his mother, who thinks it's a symptom of something more serious. Gabrielle did everything she could, but she turned to Dr. Moira MacTaggert for help. She tells Moira that Xavier is David's father and that she doesn't want him involved. Unfortunately, David's powers began to manifest uncontrollably, absorbing the psyches of two of MacTaggert's friends, Tom Corsi and Sharon Friedlander. Moira had no choice but to call Xavier to help who is assisted by some of the New Mutants. When David absorbs Moira's and Wolfsbane's psyches into his mind, Xavier and Dani used their powers to enter it as well. It is here that Xavier discovers he's David's father.[3] Gabrielle and Cypher are also absorbed and they all meet David's various personalities, including that of the absorbed psyche of the terrorist leader who raided his home. Eventually, Dani and David's personalities returned everybody to their bodies, fixing most of David's mind and ridding him of his disorder. Despite her secrecy, Xavier does his best to help raise David.[4]

Later, Gabrielle becomes Magneto's attorney, who is on trial for crimes against humanity. The trial was halted when Baron Strucker's mutant twin children, collectively named Fenris, attacked the proceedings seeking revenge against her, Xavier and Magneto for their father's death. After Xavier and Magneto defeated them, Magneto did not return to the courtroom.[5]

Gabrielle loses David because of Bishop from an alternate timeline known as the Age of Apocalypse after he created said timeline when he accidentally kills his father. Bishop in the AoA timeline prevents this from happening by killing David.[6]

Deeply saddened by the loss of her son, Gabrielle eventually moved on with her life. She continued work as the Israeli ambassador.[7] She, along with the mutant hero Sabra, attempted to find out Magneto's true identity, but failed after he killed the forger Georg Odekirk who gave him the "Erik Magnus Lehnsherr" name.[8] Gabrielle was also part of the United Nations decision to give the island nation of Genosha to Magneto, after he demanded an entire mutants-only nation.[9]

Gabrielle opposed the formation of the Mutant Response Division that was proposed by Stephen Lang and Bolivar Trask. The group formed anyway.[10]

Pete Wisdom later called Gabrielle to have a talk with Legion after he caused trouble across Great Britain. Following the coordinates in the car that was sent to pick up Legion, Gabrielle tracked the coordinates to Muir Island. After Gabrielle and Legion talked about what transpired in the "Age of X" reality, Gabrielle is accidentally shot by an Aqiri superhero whose president holds a personal grudge against Legion. As Gabrielle started bleeding, she told her son not to search his mind for a personality that has healing powers. Before passing away, Gabrielle told Legion that there haven't been any miracles from coming back from the dead. Infuriated with his mother's death, Legion incinerated his attackers and then teleported to the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning.[11]

Gabrielle was later resurrected by Legion alongside Abigail Brand, Chamber, Karasu-Tengu, and Sojobo Tengu.[12]

Sasha Hammer is a character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. She first appeared in The Invincible Iron Man #1 (July 2008), and was created by Matt Fraction and Salvador Larroca.

She is the daughter of Justine Hammer and the Mandarin,[20] a relative of Justin Hammer and Temugin, and an enemy of Iron Man. Raised by her mother, they both harbor a desire for revenge against Tony Stark for Justin's loss, and see Stark as an obstacle to their success.[20] She first appeared as the girlfriend/assistant to tech-terrorist Ezekiel "Zeke" Stane, providing support to Zeke's attacks on Stark Industries buildings around the world. When Zeke is apprehended by Iron Man and S.H.I.E.L.D., Sasha is able to go underground, having never been discovered.[21]

Following Norman Osborn's fall from power, Hammer reappears out in the open alongside Justine as Hammer Industries' heads and purchases numerous de-commissioned H.A.M.M.E.R. technologies to create a large suit of powered armor that they wish to market globally for new generation of soldiers.[20] Justine and Sasha embark on a campaign to discredit Iron Man in the industrial market, conspiring with the corrupt Pentagon general Babbage and staging civilian attacks in which Lt. Doug Johnson is arranged to intervene before Iron Man. When confronted about her operations, Sasha attacks with her own biotech weapons with which Zeke augmented her body before being arrested, revealing her criminal intent to both Iron Man and Rescue.[20] Shortly after, the Steelcorps launches a surprise attack on Stark Resilient by orchestrating a remote-server air-strike unwittingly piloted by young gamers on phones-unaware these actions were actually taking place in the real world. The combined efforts of Iron Man, War Machine, Rescue and Maria Hill are able to stop the strike and shut down the Steelcorps.[20] When the Hammers use their connections to arrange Zeke's secret release, Sasha introduces Zeke to her father's employ.[20]

After Johnson is turned into stone by the Asgardian demon Mokk: Breaker of Faith and believed dead, Sasha is the Detroit Steel armor's new pilot by Justine.[22] However, Johnson is later revealed to be alive and kidnaps his replacement. Johnson brings Sasha bound and gagged to Justine, threatening to kill her unless the Detroit Steel armor is returned. Johnson releases Hammer after regaining the Detroit Steel suit's possession. Sasha and the Steelcorps battle Johnson, resulting in Sasha killing Johnson with her whips.[23] After Iron Man and Zeke joined forces to create a revolution and escape the Mandarin's captivity, Sasha and Zeke want revenge on Justine for what her father did to Zeke, and presumably kill her mother as well.[24]

Sasha and her Detroit Steel armor are next seen in Black Panther #171 (May 2018), the twelfth and penultimate part of writer Ta-Nehisi Coates's "Avengers of the New World" storyline. In the story, Sasha and her boyfriend, who had been previously believed killed in "The Five Nightmares" storyline in The Invincible Iron Man in which both characters first appeared, are in the African nation of Wakanda, where they are allied with the villain Klaw against Black Panther. The latter's forces dispatch Sasha and Ezekiel before defeating Klaw.[25]

Sasha Hammer's powers and abilities[edit]

Sasha Hammer has been augmented by advanced technology, enabling her body to generate powerful energy of an unspecified type. She can project this energy from her hands in the form of whips and swords that she can use in physical combat. Her enhancements also give her ability to fly. These abilities' limits have not been explicitly given, but she can use them to destroy an automobile and can prove a considerable opponent to Iron Man.[20]

When operating the Detroit Steel suits, she has at her disposal that full range of armaments and other features with which the Detroit Steel suits were designed, as well as modifications with which can be customized to a particular pilot. According to Hammer Industries, the Detroit Steel suit incorporates technology, such as C.N.S. (Controlled Exo-Enhanciles), that would eventually be used to end paralysis caused by cervical, thoracic or corticospinal injuries. Weighing four and a half tons,[20] the "oversized"[26] Detroit Steel towers over Iron Man,[20] at approximately twice her opponent's height.[20] The suit affords its occupant considerable protection from automatic weapons and explosives,[20] though the magically powered Mokk was able to easily rip open the armor.[27]

The Detroit Steel suit allows its users to fly (though Sasha has this aforementioned ability without one), and usually is seen with a rotary cannon mounted on its right arm, and a specialized chainsaw on its left,[20] which can penetrate Iron Man's Bleeding Edge Armor.[20] There are rocket-powered munitions on the Detroit Steel suit's shoulders.[20] The rotary cannon can be dismounted so that the soldier can carry and fire it as a traditional handheld weapon,[27] and the Detroit Steel armor users have been seen outfitted with other types of weapons in this manner, including both directed-energy weapons and scaled-up rifles.[27] Sasha's Detroit Steel armor has also been observed to have a directed-energy weapon in palm of its hands.[27] Those who pilot the Detroit Steel armor are required to undergo considerable surgical modifications, which leave implants visible on the pilot's chest, which Lt. Johnson (who first piloted the Mark One) felt "turned [Johnson] into a monster", though Hammer (who already had undergone a number of enhancements by Zeke) regards herself as Stane's "masterpiece".[20] As an executive of Hammer Industries, she has access to a wide range of armors that come in varying sizes and designs,[28][23] with different models designed for different environments and hot zones, including arctic climates and urban encounters.[20]

Victoria Hand[edit]

Hangman[edit]

Harlan Krueger[edit]

Harlan Krueger was created by Marv Wolfman and Gil Kane and first appeared in Werewolf by Night #11.[30]

After being court-martialed from the army for torturing prisoners of war, Krueger resolved to take the law into his own hands and became the masked vigilante the Hangman. His modus operandi involves executing male criminals while leaving female ones alive but imprisoned to 'protect them' from corruption (many died of starvation while in captivity). After years of stalking criminals with a noose and scythe, he comes into conflict with the Werewolf.[31][32]

The Hangman next stalks one of the Brothers Grimm, who had been stealing from diamond merchants. Mistaking one Brother Grimm (Jake) for his target (William), he pursued him to a pyrotechnics building and saw him seemingly die in an explosion.[33] He was later one of the superhumans captured by the Locksmith and Tick-Tock.[34]

The Hangman later kills a disguised woman, thus inadvertently violating his own moral code. As he knelt over the corpse in remorse, he was fatally stabbed by film reviewer Matthew O'Brien, who had been trying to stop the Hangman from his latest killing spree, impaling the Hangman through the back and chest with his own scythe.[35]

Jason Roland[edit]

Jason Roland was created by Roy Thomas and Barry Smith, and first appeared in Tower of Shadows #5. He was an actor who made a deal with the demon Satannish[volume & issue needed] to make his career successful,[volume & issue needed] but was instead trapped in a monstrous form.[volume & issue needed] He fought with the West Coast Avengers on several occasions.[36][37]

As the Hangman, he possesses magically enhanced strength and durability; indeed, he has gone head-to-head with Wonder Man. His rope is also magically enhanced, making it virtually indestructible. He can also levitate his rope and climb it without it being attached to anything. He is in almost constant communication with Satannish, who can enhance his powers as needed.

Maya Hansen[edit]

Maya Hansen is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. She first appeared in Iron Man vol. 4 #1 (Jan. 2005) and was created by Warren Ellis and Adi Granov.

Maya is a scientist who developed the Extremis virus alongside Aldrich Killian. When Killian steals a sample of the virus and sells it to domestic terrorists, she calls up her old friend Tony Stark to help recover it.[38] After Tony is severely beaten by Mallen, a terrorist who had been injected with the virus, he convinces Maya to inject him with Extremis too.[39] Tony defeats and apprehends Mallen, but he discovers that Killian could not have acted alone in selling Extremis. 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.[40]

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.[41] 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.[42]

Following the events of the Secret Invasion storyline, Maya Hansen disappeared from the series and was not seen again until the relaunch of the Iron Man series during the Marvel NOW! event. It was revealed that she was kidnapped by A.I.M. to recreate the Extremis serum for them and succeeded. Though she was killed while trying to escape, she accomplishes her failsafe plan by sending a prerecorded message she made to Tony to warn him that the Extremis virus is on the loose again.[43]

Reception for Maya Hansen[edit]

  • In 2021, CBR.com ranked Maya Hansen 10th in their "Marvel: 10 Smartest Female Characters" list.[44]

Maya Hansen in other media[edit]

  • Maya Hansen appears in Iron Man 3, portrayed by Rebecca Hall. This version is one of Tony Stark's one-night stands; in a flashback to 1999, she reveals to him the prototype of the virus known as Extremis and is upset when he leaves her after their night together and forgoes aiding her research. Maya reunites with Tony during the film to warn him about the Mandarin and is saved by Pepper Potts from the destruction of his mansion. She is later revealed to be working with Aldrich Killian to improve on Extremis and use the Mandarin to cover up the deaths of their test subjects. To convince Tony to help perfect the virus, Maya tricks Pepper while in hiding and tells Killian where to find them, resulting in Pepper being taken captive. Later however, she has a change of heart when confronted by Tony and realizing the extent of Killian's agenda. Maya then tries to back out of Killian's plan by holding a vial of potent Extremis to her neck and threatening to kill them all in the resulting explosion unless he frees Tony and Pepper. Instead, Killian decides she is no longer necessary to his plans and shoots her himself. An extended scene of this shows Maya sending her files on Extremis to Tony as she is dying from her gunshot wound in order to help him stop Killian.
  • Maya Hansen appears in the motion comic production of the "Iron Man Extremis" storyline, voiced by Theresa Spurrier.

Quincy is the son of Jonathan and Mina Harker, two of the major characters in Stoker's novel. He was trained as a vampire hunter by Abraham Van Helsing, becoming his successor. In retaliation, Dracula causes Quincy's wife Elizabeth to commit suicide (out of her fear of him) and cripples Quincy, requiring him to use a wheelchair.[volume & issue needed] Despite this, Quincy continues the fight, converting his house into a veritable vampire deathtrap and his wheelchair into a personal anti-vampire arsenal.

When Abraham Van Helsing's granddaughter Rachel was still a child, Dracula slew her parents before her eyes.

Ganke accidentally blurted out Miles name.[57] Danika started to look into seeing how much she can make when selling the identity of a superhero.[53] However, she dropped the idea due to the fact that she was in love with Ganke where a letter to her revealed that he is in love with her.[58]

Hauptmann Deutschland[edit]

Markus Ettlinger / Hauptmann Deutschland (German for Captain Germany), also known as Vormund (Guardian), is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He was created by Mark Gruenwald and Rik Levins.

Markus Ettlinger is part of a team called the Schutz Heiliggruppe, which was a national superteam protecting Germany. He first appeared in a backup story in Captain America where the Schutz Heiliggruppe captured the Red Skull and abducted him back to Germany in an attempt to put him on trial for war crimes. Although they captured the Skull and subsequently his Skeleton Crew, they later surrendered the Skull to a false Thor, Iron Man and Captain America, who were actually shapeshifting "bioplastoid" androids created by the Skull's lackey Arnim Zola.[59]

Realizing the deception, Hauptmann Deutschland followed the Skull back to America. After a brawl with Captain America, the heroes teamed up to track the Skull. They concluded the hunt when confronted with a false corpse of the Red Skull. The false Skull had been shot through the head and appeared to have been killed by the Scourge of the Underworld, who left his trademark "Justice is Served" scrawled on the wall.[59]

Vormund's next appearance was in a somewhat convoluted tale where he set out with Zeitgeist, another member of the Schutz Heiliggruppe, in order to investigate the slaying of their partner Blitzkrieger, who had been slain while investigating the murders of multiple South American local superheroes. Although Vormund was framed for the murders, it was eventually discovered that Zeitgeist was actually a somewhat obscure American villain known as Everyman. While fleeing Captain America, Zeitgeist tried to stab Vormund with his sword. Vormund redirected the force of Zeitgeist/Everyman's stab and killed him.[60]

Hauptman Deutschland is later seen aiding Blue Marvel against the organization The Terror-Hives of W.E.S.P.E.[61]

Naming controversy[edit]

When the issues of Captain America containing Hauptmann Deutschland and the rest of the Schutz Heiliggruppe were to be published in Germany by licensee Condor Interpart, the names of the team were changed in accordance with the German taboos on references to Nazism, despite the team being distinctly anti-Nazi in behavior and the fact that Hauptmann Deutschland's name (literal translation: "Captain Germany") contains no actual reference to Nazism. In Germany, Hauptmann Deutschland was renamed Freiheitskämpfer (Freedom Fighter).[citation needed]

Due to a lack of coordination, when Hauptmann Deutschland next appeared in American comics, he was renamed Vormund, which means "legal guardian", "warden" or "custodian". Per Markus Raymond, a submitter to The Appendix to The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe, Vormund actually should be used only in reference to a "legal guardian for a child or somebody else who can't talk legally for himself".[62]

Vormund in other media[edit]

Haven[edit]

Created byJ.M. DeMatteis, Greg Luzniak
SpeciesHuman (fetus is human mutant)

Haven (Radha Dastoor) is a mutant character, created by J.M. DeMatteis and Greg Luzniak, who first appeared in X-Factor #96. She was the best-selling author of a book about the new humanity that would result from humans and mutants evolving into one race. She planned to bring this 'new humanity' about by destroying three quarters of the world in a Mahapralaya, or 'Great Destruction', as foretold in her Hindu teachings.[64]

X-Factor opposes her, but she is able to sway Wolfsbane by curing her of the genetic engineering that had turned her into a mindless Genoshan mutate, allowing her to once again assume human form. X-Factor shuts down her entire operation with the help of her brother Monsoon. She attempts to cure Jamie Madrox (not the original, although no one knows that) from the Legacy Virus, but she fails and he dies, leaving X-Factor to believe the original Madrox is dead.[65]

Haven herself has no powers, but is carrying a mutant fetus, with various abilities ranging from healing to telepathy to opening dimensional portals into personal pocket dimensions. The fetus acts through Haven, leaving the true nature of the situation unknown to the general populus. The fetus was the product of an old affair that never came to term, instead remaining a sentient embryo.[66] Haven's efforts to cause destruction attract the attention of the Adversary, who uses her fetus to return himself to the world, consuming Haven in the process.[67]

Hawley was a Red Cross medic who helped soldiers during World War II. Nick Fury meets her, falling in love with her because of her determined and "stubborn" attitude, but not thinking she would return these feelings. Her father Lord Hawley asked Fury to search for her brother Percy Hawley after being kidnapped by Nazis. Unfortunately, Percy was a Nazi sympathizer and Fury was forced to kill the man. To keep her from grief, Fury told Hawley that Percy died a hero. Hawley would go on to date Fury who, despite getting ridiculed and poked fun at by the Howling Commandos, ensured that she was loved. Despite Fury's overall character, Hawley considered Fury a "gentleman".[68][69]

At one point, the time-displaced Morgana Blessing and Doctor Strange arrive, with the former discovering that she is Hawley's spiritual descendant. Along with Fury and Dum Dum Dugan, they battle Baron Mordo's minion, Sir Baskerville, using the power of Fury and Hawley's love. Doctor Strange then erases everyone's memories of the event.[70]

Gene and Alice Hayes[edit]

Haywire[edit]

Haywire is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Haywire was originally a character from the Squadron Supreme limited series from Marvel Comics.

Harold Danforth has the ability to create and project strands of 5mm diameter metallic "tanglewires". These wires can be created at some distance from his body, and disappear if he loses consciousness. Haywire was a member of Nighthawk's group of freedom fighters, the Redeemers, whose purpose was to overthrow the government controlled by the Squadron Supreme. During this time he was romantically involved with fellow Redeemer Inertia.[73] Haywire was one of the Redeemers who joined the Squadron Supreme as a double agent in order to sabotage their efforts at world conquest. He accompanied Lamprey and the Whizzer on a tour of the hibernacle, and then led Lamprey into Redeemers headquarters for deprogramming.[74] With his fellow Redeemers, Haywire fought the Squadron, forcing them to end their dictatorship over the United States of "Other-Earth". Haywire battled the Whizzer during the huge battle. After the battle, some of the surviving Redeemers joined the Squadron Supreme, including Haywire.[75]

Haywire worked with fellow Squadron members to prevent the destruction of their universe by the Nth Man. Haywire witnesses the grisly death of his girlfriend Inertia at the hands of the Nth Man.[76] Because of the events of that encounter, the Squadron Supreme became stranded on "mainstream" Earth. They relocated to Project: Pegasus headquarters. Alongside the Shape, Haywire was mind-controlled by the Over-Mind into battling Quasar to cover the Over-Mind's escape from Earth.[77] Haywire participated in Doctor Strange's failed attempt to return the Squadron to their own Earth.[78]

When the rest of the Squadron finally did return home, Haywire chose to remain on Marvel-Earth.[79] Sometime later, Haywire happened across a battle between Thanos of Titan (self-styled god of death) and Mantis (also known as the Celestial Madonna), as Thanos attempted to destroy Quoi, her child (destined to become the Celestial Messiah). Haywire tried to help Mantis and eventually, Mantis elicited help from Haywire and an assemblage of Avengers in defeating Thanos's efforts to kill her son. In the process, Haywire hoped to encounter the cosmic embodiment of Death in order to bid it to restore Inertia to life. Ultimately, Haywire got his chance, but Death did not respond to his pleas. Distraught and obsessed, Haywire leapt into the form of Death itself and was destroyed.[80]

Hazmat[edit]

Hazmat (Jennifer Takeda) first appeared in Avengers Academy #1 (June 2010); she was a series regular through its final issue.

Norman Osborn offers to cure her, but is just exploiting her.

During the Heroic Age storyline, Hazmat is recruited into the Avengers Academy, along with five other students affected by Osborn. The group is led to believe that they are among those most likely to become heroes, but quickly uncover files stating they are in fact most likely to become villains.[81] Hazmat later enters a romantic relationship with Mettle, one of the only people who can physically touch her.[82] Desiring normal lives, the two consume a substance that removes their powers;[83] but later take an antidote to regain them to fight the substance's villainous creator,[84] and then proceed to consummate their relationship.[85]

As part of the Marvel NOW!, in Avengers Arena Hazmat, Reptil, Mettle, X-23, and a dozen others are kidnapped by Arcade. Arcade takes them to Murderworld, where Hazmat watches Mettle die to save her. She later becomes injured and begins to lose control over her radiation.[86] The resulting explosion leads to complete control of her radiation so that she no longer has to wear her containment suit.[87]

When Cammi and Anachronism reveal Bloodstone has gone missing, everyone heads to Bagalia to find him. Once they do, he reveals that he enjoys life among the villains, and the others, minus Cammi, start to enjoy it as well. When Cammi tries to tell the others to leave, Bloodstone instead has Daimon Hellstrom teleport the group to Arcade's latest party so they can kill him,[88] which Hazmat does, blowing him to bits with a concentrated radiation burst.[89] The group is invited to join with Baron Zemo.[90] Hazmat, along with Anachronism and Cammi, are brought to be trained by Madame Masque, and the team plans to infiltrate the Masters of Evil and destroy them from within.[91] Over the next few months, Hazmat and Anachronism grow close, eventually kissing. Hazmat contacts Hank Pym and informs him of the plans that the team has uncovered. She also tries to contact Death Locket, but later learns that Death Locket has betrayed the group and put Chase in a coma. She bests Death Locket and the Young Masters.[92]

During the "Empyre" storyline, Hazmat is recruited to Captain Marvel's personal Accuser Corps and receives a copy of the Universal Weapon that was made by Doctor Strange.[93]

Powers and abilities[edit]

Hazmat constantly emits harmful radiation, forcing her to wear a protective suit at all times when around others. The suit serves the additional purpose of enabling her to focus her radiation into energy bolts. Although her abilities manifested during her teens without obvious explanation, it has been confirmed that she is not a mutant.[94]

Headlok[edit]

Headlok (Arthur Goddard) is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character first appeared in The West Coast Avengers vol. 2 #10 in July 1986. Headlok first appeared in The West Coast Avengers vol. 2 #10 (July 1986), and was created by Steve Englehart and Al Milgrom. The character subsequently appears in Alpha Flight #93–96 (Feb.–May 1991), #102–104 (Nov. 1991-Jan. 1992) and Thunderbolts #55–58 (Oct. 2001-Jan. 2002). Headlok received an entry in the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Update '89 #3.

This mysterious menace found the Griffin roaming the Adirondack Mountains, and used his mental powers to enslave the Griffin. Headlok tricked the West Coast Avengers by claiming to have spotted Ben Grimm whom the team was looking for. Headlok ambushed them with the Griffin and attempted to take over their minds one by one. The Avenger Tigra was able to calm the Griffin's rage. It turns out the Thing had indeed been nearby and he joined the battle. Headlok, not knowing this, had not been using his powers to hide himself from sight or mentally influence Ben Grimm and thus was taken by surprise and Headlok was swiftly defeated.[97]

Alpha Flight and the Fantastic Four later contended against Headlok.[98] Headlok mentally manipulated Aurora, causing her to revert to her original split personality, and she then apparently killed Headlok.[99] However, he later reappeared as a prisoner, and participated in a prison break.[100]

Headlok has since been seen working for S.H.I.E.L.D. alongside Bennet Du Paris. They were brought in to deal with a rogue mutant as part of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Psi-division. The psychic confrontation appears to have left Headlok dead.[101] This death is eventually undone when Cyclops' former student, Tempus, goes back in time to erase a rogue mutant's existence.[102]

Hecate is the name of a fictional deity appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, based on the Greek goddess who had the same name. Created by Chris Claremont and Sal Buscema, she first appeared in Ms. Marvel #11 (1977). Hecate made her first appearance in Ms. Marvel #11 in 1977. The character has since made several appearances in various Marvel Comics titles.

In the Marvel Comics universe, Hecate is among the Titans who ruled the ancient world that Zeus spares when he deposes them and conquers Olympus, and becomes Olympus' resident Goddess of Magic. She is the first deity to give magic to mortals, in defiance of Zeus who had forbidden the gods from meddling with humans. Zeus later exiles her from Olympus, wiping her memories and stripping her of her powers.[103] Hecate appears on Earth, claiming to be an extra-dimensional explorer, mistaken for Hecate on a visit to the planet some millennia prior. At one point she fights Ms. Marvel.[104]

At some point, she loses more of her memories and becomes an inmate of the Raft.[volume & issue needed] During the Fear Itself storyline, Hecate is among the Raft inmates who escape after Juggernaut in the form of Kuurth: Breaker of Stone levels it. She assists Basilisk, Griffin, and Man-Bull in a bank robbery until Hercules arrives and recognizes her. Hecate shortly regains her memories, recovers her godly abilities, and decides to take over Brooklyn,[105] reshaping the borough to resemble a monster-infested Ancient Greece.[106] Hercules kills her ally Kyknos and she flees as Brooklyn returns to its normal state.[107]

Some time later, the Scarlet Witch seeks out Hecate after sensing a disturbance in witchcraft. She finds her operating a café on a Greek island and asks for her help. Hecate explains that she is content to remain uninvolved with the world of witchcraft, but mentions that there is a magical disturbance on the island, which could support Wanda's theory that magic is broken. She asks Wanda to defeat a Minotaur that has been murdering islanders, and the heroine discovers that the Emerald Warlock, a century-old mage, had forcibly transformed Man-Bull to do his bidding.[108]

Hemingway[edit]

Hemingway is a member of the team called Gene Nation. His first appearance was in Generation X #5. He is one of the few members to remain in all three incarnations of the team.

When the mentally unstable Mikhail Rasputin flooded the Morlock tunnels, many were believed dead. However, at the last instant Mikhail used his powers to open a portal into parallel dimension dubbed The Hill. In this dimension, time moves at a faster rate, and even though it was a manner of months in the main Marvel Universe, it had been between 10 and 20 years on the Hill.

On the anniversary of the Mutant Massacre, a horrific event in which Mr. Sinister's henchmen the Marauders killed many Morlocks, the members of Gene Nation reappeared in the main universe (Earth-616). Their mission was to destroy one hundred humans for every Morlock life that was lost, and also, in a side mission performed by Hemingway and Marrow, to kill some of the original Morlocks. In Marrow's eyes, Leech, one of the few to survive the massacre, was weak and instead of defending his people he hid like a coward. Fortunately, the White Queen, who was trying to recruit Leech to her teenage mutant team Generation X, was able to thwart their efforts. However, with the intervention of the Dark Beast, Marrow and Hemingway escaped.[109]

Afterwards, a team of X-Men and the Morlock Callisto confronted an attack group from Gene Nation, which included Vessel, that was threatening the lives of several civilians by attaching incendiary devices to them that were regulated by Marrow's heartbeat. Seeing it as the only way of stopping the terrorist, Storm ripped out Marrow's heart. Defeated, Callisto took Vessel, along with the remaining members of Gene Nation, back to The Hill.[volume & issue needed]

A few months later, Storm was kidnapped by Mikhail and taken to The Hill. Once there, she had to fight her way to the top of the hill where Mikhail lived, where she successfully overpowered him. Hemingway was one of the team that had successfully reached the top, yet he had decided to take on the moniker of "Pain". Having won the victory, Storm forced Mikhail to take all of the people living on The Hill back to the real world. In an effort to give the mutants a new start, she settled them in a village outside of her home town in Africa.[volume & issue needed]

However, they would not get much of a chance to start over because shortly after they were placed in Africa the Dark Beast gathered some of the original members of Gene Nation, along with some new recruits, to form a new team. The express purpose of this team was to capture test subjects for the evil genius, namely the students of Generation X. Now returning to his former name, Hemingway, along with Vessel, were the only members of Gene Nation to be unsuccessful in their quarry, the newcomer Gaia. Along with the White Queen and Nate Grey, also known as X-Man, the three defeated the team.[volume & issue needed]

Hemingway's final appearance was in the pages of Weapon X where he joined his old teammate Marrow, who was now leading Gene Nation, as her personal bodyguard. After manipulating the perfect killing machine Agent Zero into unintentionally killing his former sidekick, the assassin hunted down and killed every single member of Gene Nation in an act of vengeance, Hemingway being among the last. However, he spares the life of Marrow because he does not want others to see her as a martyr.[volume & issue needed]

During the "Necrosha" storyline, Hemingway is among the dead mutants resurrected by the transmode virus that Selene sends to attack X-Force.[volume & issue needed]

Hephaestus[edit]

Hephaestus first appeared in Thor #129 (June 1966), and was adapted from mythology by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. He is the weaponmaker of the Olympian pantheon. He is not to be confused with the Eternal Phastos. Immortal and possessing superhuman physical attributes similar to those of the other Olympians, Hephaestus is a master weapons maker and inventor, able to make weapons which could kill even Hercules, but lacks the ability to project any form of energy, mystical or non-mystical. He made Hercules's mace, Ares' armor, and Zeus' chariot.

Sif and Hildegarde joined forces with Tana Nile, and escaped with her to Earth.[111] Ego-Prime came to Earth, and the Asgardians battled him, and Odin sacrificed Ego-Prime to transform three people into Young Gods.[volume & issue needed] The Asgardians, including Thor, Sif, and Hildegarde, were banished to Earth for a time for questioning Odin's actions during these events.[volume & issue needed] Hildegarde accompanied Thor for a while before returning to Asgard.[volume & issue needed]

Hildegund[edit]

Further reading

Hildegund is a character in Marvel Comics. She was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and first appeared in Journey into Mystery #120 (September 1965).

Hildegund, sometimes called Gudrun, is the wife of Volstagg of the Warriors Three. She is an excellent cook and it is because of this that her husband is large and fat, something that makes Hildegund and Volstagg very happy. Together the couple had ten sons (Alaric, Arngrim, Einar, Gunnar, Hrolf, Leif, Rolfe, Svein, Sigfod, Thakrad), four daughters (Flosi, Gudrun, Gunnhild, Jargsa) and numerous unnamed children. At some point, twins, Mick and Kevin Mortensen were orphaned when their mother, Ruby, was killed by Zaniac.[112] Thor took the twins to Asgard where Volstagg and Hildegund lovingly accepted them with open arms.[113] When Loki returned, albeit as a child, everyone in Asgard turned him away except for Volstagg and Hildegund, the latter feeling that he just needed motherly love and affection.[114]

Hildegund in other media[edit]

Carol Hines[edit]

Carol Hines is a technician who works for the Weapon X project. When soldiers working for the Weapon X project brought in their captive Logan, Carol Hines reviewed the medical records of Logan. Carol Hines was present when the adamantium-bonding process was used on Logan where she was at the side of Professor Thorton and Abraham Cornelius.[115] When he went berserk upon breaking free, Carol Hines was a witness to this as Logan slaughtered many soldiers and scientists while escaping.[116]

At the time when Wolverine is planning to confront Professor Thorton, Carol Hines was present when Professor Thorton tells her that Wolverine is playing right into his hands. He tells Carol Hines that they are to book a flight to Canada immediately. When Wolverine enters a warehouse in Windsor, Ontario, Professor Thorton and Carol Hines watch alongside some HYDRA Agents. Then Professor Thortorn and Carol Hines enter a room to continue monitoring Wolverine as Professor Thorton activates the Shiva program. As Wolverine fights the Shiva robot, Carol Hines and Professor Thorton are attacked by Silver Fox who knocks out Carol Hines. When the X-Men catch up to where Professor Thorton was, they find Carol Hines with the Professor Thorton's dead body where she tells them that the Shiva robots have escaped the building chanting Sabretooth's name.[117]

HYDRA later had Carol Hines in their clutches at the time when Wolverine and Wraith arrived at the HYDRA hover ship. Silver Fox has the HYDRA Agents torture the classified information of the Weapon X Program out of Carol Hines. Wolverine and Wraith don't agree with Carol Hines' torture and knock out the HYDRA Agents. After Mastodon liquifies in Jubilee's hands, Carol Hines states that it's the foreseen side effect of his age suppressor giving out.[118] When Wolverine, Silver Fox, Wraith, and Maverick confront Aldo Ferro, Carol Hines tells Wolverine that Aldo Ferro is a "Psi-Borg". Aldo Ferro then mutates and kills Carol Hines by snapping her neck. When Maverick checks on Carol Hines, he finds that her neck-snapping was an illusion and that she died of fright at the sight of Aldo Ferro's Psi-Borg form.[119]

Hobgoblin (Imperial Guard)[edit]

First appearanceThe X-Men #107 (October 1977)
Created byChris Claremont and Dave Cockrum
SpeciesChameloid
TeamsImperial Guard
AbilitiesShapeshifting

Hobgoblin is a Chameloid shapeshifter who is a member of the Shi'ar Imperial Guard. Created by Chris Claremont and Dave Cockrum, the character first appeared in The X-Men #107 (October 1977). Like many original members of the Imperial Guard, Hobgoblin is the analog of a character from DC Comics' Legion of Super-Heroes: in his case Chameleon Boy.[121]

Part of the division of the Imperial Guard known as the Superguardians, Hobgoblin is amongst the first of the Imperial Guard encountered by the team of superhuman mutant adventurers known as the X-Men who sought to rescue the Princess-Majestrix Lilandra Neramani from her insane brother, then-Majestor D'Ken.[122] After the battle, Lilandra takes over as Majestrix, and the Guard swears allegiance to her.[123] Some time later, the Guardsmen again come into conflict with the X-Men regarding Dark Phoenix, this time at the behest of Empress Lilandra.[124]

Later, when Deathbird becomes Empress, she commands the entire Imperial Guard, including Hobgoblin, to fight the combined forces of the Starjammers and Excalibur on Earth so that she can claim the power of the Phoenix Force for herself. The Guard are forced to retreat when Deathbird is put in danger (and she realizes that Lilandra is leading the rebels).[125] (Some time later War Skrulls impersonating Charles Xavier and the Starjammers depose Deathbird and restore Lilandra Neramani to the throne. Deathbird cedes the empire back to Lilandra as she has grown bored of the bureaucracy.)[126]

In Operation: Galactic Storm, Hobgoblin masquerades as a crewman aboard a Shi'ar ship that has invaded Earth space, but is captured by the Avengers.[127] He is taken to Project Pegasus, where his fellow Guardsman Warstar has also been incarcerated. Imperial Guardsmen Nightside and Scintilla break into Pegasus and free their teammates.[128] Impersonating the Kree geneticist Doctor Minerva, Hobgoblin induces the Kree Captain Atlas to accompany him aboard a Shi’ar ship, where the Kree are outnumbered by the Imperial Guard, who then claim Captain Marvel's Nega-Bands for themselves.[129]

Some years later, Ronan the Accuser leads the Kree in a surprise attack against the Shi'ar, using the Inhumans as an army to disrupt the Shi'ar control of the Kree. He forces the Inhumans and their king, Black Bolt, to obey, or he will destroy Attilan and everyone in it. He compels Karnak, Gorgon, and Triton to covertly join the Imperial Guard, while Black Bolt and Medusa attempt the assassination of the Shi'ar ruler Lilandra at a ceremony ratifying an alliance between the Shi'ar and the Spartoi. Hobgoblin poses as Lilandra, and is killed in her place.[130]

Hoder[edit]

Hoder first appeared in Thor #274–275 (August–September 1978), and was adapted from mythology by Roy Thomas and John Buscema. He is a totally blind, elder Asgardian god. At one point, Loki, God of Mischief, tricks Hoder into nearly killing Balder by shooting him with an arrow made of mistletoe wood (the only substance to which Balder is vulnerable). As well as possessing the superhuman abilities shared by all the Gods of Asgard, such as superhuman strength, Hoder can also receive visions of a far distant future or of events that will occur in other realities.

His dealings with Balder are detailed in the 'Trials of Loki' four part story.[131]

Crusher Hogan[edit]

Joseph "Crusher" Hogan is a fictional wrestler in Marvel Comics. The character, created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, first appeared in Amazing Fantasy #15 (August 1962).

Joseph Hogan, who went by the nickname Crusher Hogan, was a professional wrestler who worked for the Wrestling League. The Wrestling League was losing money due to a rival wrestling company. While his wife wanted him to quit, he instead offered cash money to whoever was able to beat him in wrestling. This worked as people would pay to fight him only to lose.[132]

Young Peter Parker, who had just been bitten by the radioactive spider and was looking to make money, took up the offer and put on a disguise to fight him. To Hogan's surprise, he was defeated and Peter won the money.[133]

Years later, Hogan works as a janitor at a gym. It was revealed that after his defeat at the hands of Spider-Man, his life went to pieces. His wife left him, the Wrestling League fell apart, and he's looked down upon by his peers. Hogan regales stories of how he "trained" Spider-Man and gave him his web shooters and costume. Hogan discovered that one of the boxers at the gym was in trouble with the local criminal Madame Fang. Hogan takes on her muscle Manslaughter Marsdale, but is overmatched. Spider-Man arrives to defeat Marsdale and afterwards confirms Hogan's stories, giving a little bit of credibility and respect to Hogan's reputation.[134]

Alternate versions of Crusher Hogan[edit]

In House of M, Hogan appears as the Green Goblin, here a professional wrestling gimmick/moniker. Hogan worked with Spider-Man during his early years as a celebrity and is a friend outside the wrestling business.[135]

Hulk Robot[edit]

Military's Hulk Robot[edit]

The first Hulk Robot was a simulacrum created by the scientists at Gamma Base that was used to test the value of the Iceberg Rocket that General Thunderbolt Ross had his scientists create.[138]

A later model of the Hulk Robot was operated by a remote that is worn by an individual at a safe distance. During the time he was cured of his gamma-radiation condition, Bruce Banner donned the harness to fight Leader during his takeover of Gamma Base. Although the Hulk Robot fought Leader's Murder Module, it was destroyed in battle where the feedback nearly killed Bruce Banner.[139]

Another version of the military's Hulk Robot came into the possession of the magician Kropotkin the Great during one of his visits to Gamma Base. Even though he hasn't been to Gamma Base for a while, Kropotkin the Great still owns this Hulk Robot.[140]

Second Hulk Robot[edit]

Rusty and Arthur are two Maryland Institute of Technology students who constructed a Hulk robot to be the mascot for their school's all-star game, but Dr. Timothy Ryan considered it dangerous and wouldn't allow it. It was brought to life by cosmic energies released by the Eternals from Olympia when they emerged from the Uni-Mind. The energies granted the Hulk Robot sentience and increased its strength to rival the Hulk. It broke out of the lab and went on a rampage. When the National Guard couldn't stop the Hulk Robot, three Eternals members (Ikaris, Makkari, and Sersi) were called in.[141] Both the Eternals and National Guard were losing until Zuras entered the fray.[142] When it charged Zuras, cosmic energies leaked and it was rendered inert.[143]

Later on, Doctor Doom found the Hulk Robot and dismantled and rebuilt it to serve him.[144] He sent it to fight the Thing who thought it was the real Hulk after taking out the Grey Hulk.[145] When Thing discovered it wasn't the real Hulk during battle, he tore it apart.[144]

During the Acts of Vengeance event, Doctor Doom gave Jester II the Hulk Robot's parts and Jester rebuilt it (with the addition of humorous weapons in its arsenal) as a member of the Assembly of Evil. During the Avengers' press conference, the Hulk Robot attacked She-Hulk and had her on the ropes until Wasp attacked the Jester's remote control causing the Hulk Robot to go haywire. She-Hulk destroyed it by flinging it into an energy blast fired by Fenris.[146]

The Hulk Robot (or the non-operating version) was seen in a museum the Eternals kept in Olympia which held reminders of foes and their weapons. Zuras displayed the robot to Joey Eliot.[147]

During the Fall of the Hulks storyline, the Hulk Robot returned. When Galactus created the Cosmos Automaton to serve him as part of a later retelling of the Hulk Robot's origin as shown on the extraterrestrial disk, he abandoned it during a visit to one of the worlds that he would consume causing it to seek a new form for its body. After influencing Professor Gregson Gilbert into creating Dragon Man and finding it not to be a suitable candidate, it then influenced Mad Thinker into creating a Hulk Robot. Even though he didn't know why he created, Mad Thinker had it locked away. After the extraterrestrial disk was done showing this to Red Hulk and A-Bomb, Red Hulk considered decapitating it only for the Hulk Robot to activate upon absorbing the cosmic energy that was used to empower Red Hulk. This was all part of Leader and MODOK's plan to siphon the energy.[148] Bruce Banner, Red Hulk, and A-Bomb looked at the enemies that they were facing and found a holographic shot of the Hulk Robot.[149] Leader (alongside the other Intelligencia members) managed to obtain the Hulk Robot. The Leader used it to attack former member Doctor Doom when Skaar attacks. Doctor Doom fell victim to the Hulk Robot's "Poison Pill" when Bruce Banner arrived. The Leader then had the Hulk Robot carry away Doctor Doom.[150]

Hulk Robot later helped MODOK and the Mad Thinker's Gammadroid subdue Red Hulk.[151]

Red Hulk later drains the Gamma Energy from the Hulk Robot and rips it apart.[152]

Human Top[edit]

Bruce Bravelle[edit]

The Human Top (or just the Top) is a Golden Age superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character appeared in two stories published by Timely Comics (the predecessor of Marvel Comics) in 1940 and 1942, and not since then. His real name is Bruce Bravelle.[153] He is called "the Human Top" in the story titles but just "the Top" within the body of the stories.

Bravelle appeared in a ten-page backstory ("The Origin of the Human Top") in the first (and only) edition of Red Raven Comics, cover-dated August 1940, with script and artwork by Dick Briefer.[154]

Bravelle's second appearance was in the backstory "The Red Terror" in Tough Kid Squad, cover-dated March 1942.[155]

Bruce Bravelle was a test subject for a scientist who was trying to find a way to nourish the human body with electrical currents instead of food. In the middle of one of the tests, a bolt of lightning struck[156] the castle in which the experiment was being conducted, causing an opposing magnetic flow and giving Bravelle the ability to spin around at superhuman speed when he crosses his wrists or is exposed to electricity.[157] He can fly, drill his way through walls, and deflect bullets. He can operate underwater and travel at a speed of up to 250 miles per hour (400 km/h). His bullet-deflecting and wall-drilling powers are created by the intense whirlwind which he generates when spinning.

In his first adventure (published in 1940), the Top thwarts a bank robbery and is accused of being a thief when the bank manager personally keeps the returned money, but ultimately exposes the manager.[158][better source needed][159]

In his second adventure (published in 1942), the Top fought and defeated a sinister criminal mastermind called the Red Terror. The Red Terror and his goons derail and rob a train and escape in a zeppelin. The Top tracks them to their hideout in an abandoned mine and kills them all as they attempt to escape.[citation needed]

David Cannon[edit]

David Mitchell[edit]

David "Davy" Mitchell was a World War II hero, and member of Kid Commandos. He had the power to spin like a top at super-speed.

During World War II, teenagers David "Davy" Mitchell and Gwenny Lou Sabuki, were present at a stateside battle in which sidekicks Bucky (Bucky Barnes) and Toro (Thomas Raymond) of the superhero team the Invaders fought the supervillain Agent Axis. During the battle, one of Gwenny's father's inventions accidentally gave Gwenny and Davy superhuman powers. She became Golden Girl, and he the Human Top.[160] The four youthful heroes defeated Agent Axis, and later formed the Kid Commandos, who were allied with the adult Invaders.[volume & issue needed]

The Kid Commandos even fought the Invaders, when they disagreed with the military's use of a Tsunami Bomb, which would have caused too much collateral damage. The bomb was never used, when the Invaders saw the testing site was populated with civilians.[161]

After the war, he was a member of the Penance Council and V-Battalion.[volume & issue needed]

His son, as Twister, had tried using mechanical means to simulate the powers of the Human Top, but eventually decided to serve the V-Battalion in a scientific capacity.[volume & issue needed] Davy is also the grandfather of Topspin.[volume & issue needed]

In his later years as seen during the "Last Days" part of the Secret Wars storyline, Davy moved into Valhalla Villas, a retirement community for Golden Age heroes and villains that is located in Miami. He and the rest of the retirees were temporarily de-aged and went back into action one last time before the collision between Earth-616 and Earth-1610.[162]

Hunter in Darkness[edit]

Hunter in Darkness is a semi-legendary, bipedal lupine creature native to the Canadian wilderness, first appearing in Wolverine (vol. 2) #34 (December 1990). This humanoid, wolf-like being is animalistic though somewhat intelligent, alternating between mindless aggression and calculated hunting behaviors, even at one point seemingly forming an "alliance" with Elsie-Dee, Albert, and Wolverine. Among the Blackfoot in Canada, the Hunter is known as a boogeyman and the subject of legends. Wolverine first encountered the creature in the Canadian wilderness after escaping from the Weapon X project in a mostly feral state, at which point Wolverine freed the Hunter from a bear trap. Wolverine reencountered the Hunter years later. The Hunter was at one point captured and put on display in New York City, but it later escaped and returned to Canada.

Hussar[edit]

First appearanceThe X-Men #137 (September 1980)
Created byChris Claremont and John Byrne
SpeciesUnidentified extraterrestrial race
TeamsImperial Guard
AbilitiesChanneling of bioelectricity into other living beings to shock and paralyze

Hussar is a warrior serving in the Royal Elite of the Shi'ar Imperial Guard. She wields a whip that she uses to channel bioelectricity into her opponents to shock and paralyze. The character, created by Chris Claremont and John Byrne, first appeared in The Uncanny X-Men #137 (September 1980).

Hussar joined in the Imperial Guard's trial by combat with the X-Men to decide the fate of the Phoenix.[124]

She became a traitor and part of a renegade Imperial Guard faction which served Lord Samedar, Deathbird, and the Brood in their conspiracy to overthrow Shi'ar Princess-Majestrix Lilandra Neramani. The renegades battled the X-Men and are defeated.[168] Despite her crimes, Hussar is reinstated with the Guard.[169]

When Deathbird became Empress, Astra commanded the entire Imperial Guard to fight the combined forces of the Starjammers and Excalibur on Earth so that she could claim the power of the Phoenix Force for herself. The Guardsman Zenith was killed, and the Guard were forced to retreat when Deathbird was put in danger.[125] (Some time later War Skrulls impersonating Charles Xavier and the Starjammers deposed Deathbird and restored Lilandra to the throne. Deathbird ceded the empire back to Lilandra as she had grown bored of the bureaucracy.)[126]

Alongside the Avengers and the Imperial Guard, Hussar battled the Kree Starforce on Chandilar during the Kree/Shi'ar war. In the battle, Hussar teamed with the Living Lightning to defeat Supremor.[170] Alongside the Imperial Guard, she then battled the Avengers on the Shi'ar throneworld of Chandilar and was this time defeated by the Living Lightning.[171]

She, Warstar, Neutron, and Webwing were punished for their earlier treachery against Lilandra and sent to Earth, which had been turned into an intergalactic prison in the Maximum Security crossover in 2000.[172] The four prisoners join up with the lone D'Bari survivor Starhammer, who plots revenge against Jean Grey for the crimes committed by Dark Phoenix.[172]

Warstar, Hussar, and Neutron are later reinstated with the Guard; Webwing has not yet been seen again. Hussar was among the Imperial Guardsmen who attacked the Kree homeworld.[173] During the assault, Hussar and Electron fought Ronan the Accuser, who was ultimately defeated by their teammate, Titan.[174]

Hussar served in a number of other missions with the Imperial Guard, including "Realm of Kings"[175] and the "Trial of Jean Grey."[176]

Hussar in other media[edit]

Ralph Hutchins[edit]

Ralph "Ralphie" Hutchins was a lab worker at UCLA who appeared in She-Hulk. After receiving a sample of She-Hulk's blood, his boss uses it to make a superhero formula he injects Hutchins with. This turns Hutchins into a series of superhumans. Every time he is killed or beaten, he is resurrected as a new superhuman with new powers. His first transformation was called Brute, followed by Seeker, Radius, Torque and Earth-Lord, and in the final issue of the series he is turned into an incorporeal being of pure consciousness and leaves Earth.[177]

Hypno-Hustler[edit]

Hypnotia[edit]

Hypnotia is a fictional character appearing in Marvel Comics, created by Ron Friedman.

She first appeared in the animated series Iron Man ("And the Sea Shall Give Up Its Dead", September 24, 1994) voiced by Linda Holdahl in season one and by Jennifer Darling in season two. Hypnotia appeared seldom in Marvel comic books, mainly in the Marvel Action Hour title published at the same time as the cartoon. Her first comics appearance in comics was in Marvel Action Hour: Iron Man #1 (November 1994).

Hypnotia is a supervillain with hypnotic abilities who first appeared in Iron Man episode "And the Sea Shall Give Up Its Dead". The 1994 Iron Man animated series was part of the Marvel Action Hour, which packaged several animated versions of Marvel series with two half-hour episodes from different series. The Mandarin led a group of villains, consisting of herself, Dreadknight, Blizzard, Blacklash, Grey Gargoyle, Whirlwind, MODOK, Living Laser, and Justin Hammer against Iron Man and his team, based on Force Works. In the series, Dreadknight and Blacklash constantly competed for Hypnotia's affections, but she was seemingly attracted to Tony Stark. She did show signs of attraction to Blacklash after he saved her from a fall off a building in "Iron Man to the Second Power" Pt. 2 though Dreadknight interrupted before anything could really be said between them.

In the two-part series finale, Hypnotia, Blacklash, Whirlwind, and Blizzard are given exo-armors in their fight against Iron Man and Force Works. She and the other villains were later used to help Mandarin power the Heart of Darkness only for it to be thwarted by Iron Man. She and the other villains ended up in jail after that.
