Dansen Macabre[edit]

Dansen Macabre is an exotic dancer and a devoted worshipper of the God Shiva. She used her powers to hypnotize Spider-Man into battling The Shroud in attempt to kill both of them. The pair managed to overcome her dances and defeat her.[1] She briefly appeared later as a captive of Locksmith, but was saved by Spider-Woman.[2] Eventually, the Shroud invited her to join the Night Shift, which she accepted and became co-leader.[3] She served in several missions, mainly going up against the Avengers. She took some time out to work with Superia and the Femizons as they battled Captain America.[4]

Dansen Macabre and the rest of Night Shift are hired by Snapdragon to kill Moon Knight on behalf of Count Nefaria who was operating as the Kingpin of Los Angeles. When they fail and are bailed out of prison by Snapdragon's lawyer, Count Nefaria reduces Dansen Macabre, Digger, Needle, Tatterdemalion, Tick Tock, and Misfit to ashes.[5]

During the "Spider-Geddon" storyline, Dansen and Digger turn up alive as they, Brothers Grimm, Skein, and new member Waxman rob a bus of people only to be thwarted by Superior Octopus where his goggles tuned out Dansen's hypnotism. Superior Octopus agrees to spare them more pain in exchange that the Night Shift becomes his agents where he will compensate them from his own funds. They agree to the terms and are ordered to return the stolen items. Superior Octopus leaves advising them never to cross him or they won't live long enough to regret it.[6]

She has the mystical ability to hypnotize or kill anyone who witnesses her dancing. She can also make herself undetectable by human senses.

Jefferson Davis is a fictional supporting character in stories featuring Miles Morales, one of the characters to assume the Spider-Man mantle. The character, created by Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli, first appeared in Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #1 (November 2011), which was published as part of Marvel Comics' Ultimate Marvel line of books, which are set in a universe and continuity separate from the "mainstream" Marvel Universe.

Jefferson never got along with his brother Aaron Davis yet he decided to join his criminal brother to meet with gangster Turk Barrett. Things got out of control and Jefferson wound up in jail only to be bailed by Nick Fury. Impressed with his fighting skills, Fury had Jefferson join Barrett's gang for intel, eventually working his way up to Wilson Fisk's criminal empire. Afterwards, Jefferson was offered a spot in S.H.I.E.L.D. by Fury but chose to live a simple life, meeting and marrying Rio Morales and having Miles.[7] Jefferson is now a police officer in the NYPD, having kept Miles from ever interacting with Aaron and keeping a strict household in an attempt to lead his son on a clean path. Despite his overall dislike of Aaron's criminal activities, Jefferson was saddened by his brother's death.[8]

During the events of United We Stand, Jefferson was captured by S.H.I.E.L.D. only to be attacked by Hydra, attempting to get Jefferson to join HYDRA, but he kills them all and returns home to Rio. He tells his wife what happens and they go looking for Miles, finding their son at Ganke Lee's house.[9][10] Jefferson is later attacked by Venom who puts him in the hospital. He's attacked again, but Spider-Man battles and defeats him, but at the cost of Rio getting killed.[11] One year later, Jefferson discovered that Miles was Spider-Man, angering him and blaming his son for the deaths of Aaron and Rio.[12] Jefferson apologizes and reveals his own past to his son.[13]

After the events of Secret Wars, Molecule Man thanks Miles by transferring Spider-Man, Ganke and both their families to the mainstream Marvel Universe, with Jefferson being reunited with Rio.[14]

Scorpion also carries a staff that resembles a scorpion tail and he seems to possess super speed. He also works for S.I.L.K., an evil organization similar to Hydra. Scorpion does battle with both Spider-Gwen and his son with the latter being confused by his appearance.[15][16]

Dopinder is a fictional cab driver appearing in the X-Men film series. The character, created by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, first appeared in Deadpool (February 12, 2016) where he was portrayed by Karan Soni. He reappears in Deadpool 2.

Dopinder is a man of Indian descent who makes a living as a taxi cab driver. One day, he picks up Deadpool who, uncomfortable with sitting in the back seat, moves to the front and starts a conversation with Dopinder about where he is going and why. The two end up forming an unusual friendship as Dopinder seems to bluntly accept Deadpool's violent lifestyle. Dopinder was initially engaged to a woman named Gita who, unfortunately for Dopinder, is in love with his cousin Bandhu who Dopinder describes as being "as dishonorable as he is attractive". At Deadpool's somewhat indirect suggestion, Dopinder kidnaps Bandhu and ties him up in the trunk of his taxi cab. Deadpool amused, supports Dopinder's action while feigning condemnation as he was riding with Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead at the time, covertly advising Dopinder to kill his competition. But Dopinder ends up driving straight into a truck when Deadpool tries calling him back moments after being dropped off, damaging his taxi and causing Bandhu to scream in pain.

In the film's sequel, Dopinder continues driving Deadpool to his various contracts and missions while hoping to become a contract killer himself (confirming that he managed to successfully yet indirectly kill Bandhu) as he's envious of Deadpool's lifestyle. He begins working as a janitor at Sister Margaret's School for Wayward Children, but Deadpool and Weasel refuse to have him join in any missions. Dopinder continues showing up to aid Deadpool until finally chickens out upon seeing Juggernaut. But Dopinder later uses his taxi to kill the mutant-hating Essex Center headmaster, getting his first thrill from actually killing somebody on purpose.

It has visited the Earth several times, the first time, he tried to take over the Earth, but was apparently repulsed by the Eternal known as Interloper. The Dragon of the Moon possesses control over massive amounts of cosmic and mystical forces, presumably on at least a global scale. It is immortal. Its strength is increased on the mortal plane as the host of the Dragon of the Moon succumbs further and further to the Dragon's influence.

Dragonfly[edit]

Dragoness[edit]

Carlton Drake[edit]

Carlton Drake is a fictional character in Marvel Comics. The character, created by David Michelinie and Todd McFarlane, first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #298 (March 1988). He is the leader of Life Foundation, and is constantly at odds with Spider-Man and Venom.

Drake hires Chance to steal European armaments.[23] Drake and his men transport Chance to his survivalist facility Sanctum Maximus, and demand that Chance tell the suit's secrets. Spider-Man arrives to rescue Chance and the two destroy the facility while Drake escapes via helicopter.[24] He teams up with foreign assassin Chakane in a plot to assassinate the king of Symkaria. He presents his new project dubbed the Protectors, super enhanced, mindless mutates whom he uses against Spider-Man, Paladin and Silver Sable.[25] Afterwards, Drake helps rebuild the Tri-Sentinel for the protection of his clientele and decides to do a "field test" by pitting Tri-Sentinel against Spider-Man and Nova. However, the Tri-Sentinel is unresponsive to Drake's controls and goes on a rampage.[26] With nothing else to lose, Drake has his men gather all the data and once again evades capture.[27] He briefly teams up with Justin Hammer and Jonas Hale in an effort to steal superpowers for their own nefarious purposes, but are stopped by Spider-Man and the New Warriors.[28]

Drake next tries to go after Eddie Brock to use the Venom symbiote to create more symbiote "children". He takes a symbiote sample and creates five new symbiotes using his top security personnel as hosts: Scream (Donna Diego), Lasher (Ramon Hernandez), Phage (Carl Mach), Agony (Leslie Gesneria) and Riot (Trevor Cole).[29] His symbiote enforcers are all defeated by Spider-Man and Venom, forcing Drake to once again scrub the facility and escape while realizing that Spider-Man is more troublesome than he believed.[30]

Drake funds the Arachnis Project in an attempt to create a race of Arachnids and to potentially cure his cancer.[31] He has Spider-Man captured and forces Professor Toshiro Mikashi to use Spider-Man's blood for the Arachnis Project to cure his cancer. He has his partner Roland Treece inject him with the serum; Treece knows full well that this serum has to be ingested and Drake having a vaccine injection would be an instant death. Instead, Drake transforms into a spider monster calling himself Homo Arachnis.[32] He lays waste to the entire facility, killing many of his former employees. It takes the combined efforts of Spider-Man, Venom and The Jury who send him falling beneath the facility. He wakes up back to normal and noticeably younger looking, vowing to have his revenge against the ones who defeated him.[33] Despite this, he has not been seen since.

Carlton Drake in other media[edit]

Carlton Drake appears as the main antagonist in the 2018 film Venom, portrayed by Riz Ahmed.[34] This version is presented as a well known biochemist genius, the Life Foundation's founder and CEO, and a host of "Riot". He sets up the space mission where several symbiotes are discovered and are brought back to Earth in a spaceship which crashes in Malaysia due to the Riot symbiote getting out. When Eddie Brock questions him with information from his attorney Anne Weying, he has the two both fired from their respective jobs. He begins symbiote experiments on homeless test subjects who sign waivers that aren't understood, resulting in many unstable symbiosis deaths. When Brock accidentally bonds with the Venom symbiote and escapes, Drake finds that Dora Skirth indirectly aided and has the scientist killed by one of the symbiotes. Drake is soon possessed by the Riot symbiote and proceeds to enact a plan of using a spaceship to bring back more symbiotes to Earth. Riot then battles Venom, easily getting the upper hand in the fight between symbiotes. Riot is killed when Venom ruptures the spaceship's fuel tank which causes an explosion.

Frank Drake[edit]

Frank Drake is a fictional character, a direct descendant of Count Dracula (via a marriage from before he became a vampire). The character first appeared in Tomb of Dracula #1 and was created by Gene Colan and Gerry Conway.

Frank Drake is a former millionaire who had squandered his inheritance and had nothing more than an ancestral castle in Transylvania. Planning to sell it, he and his friends travel to the castle, and discover Dracula's skeleton. They accidentally resurrect him, and Drake narrowly escapes death. Drake eventually relocates to London.[35]

Broke and in despair, Drake attempts to commit suicide but was saved by Rachel van Helsing and Taj Nital, two vampire hunters.[36] The two, along with Quincy Harker, were dedicated to killing Dracula and his vampiric followers. Drake joins the group under van Helsing and Harker's tutelage.[37] Drake soon encounters Blade,[38] with whom Drake constantly clashed but would eventually befriend. Later, Drake and Brother Voodoo battle zombies sent by Dracula.[39] Drake, Blade, Van Helsing, Harker, and Harold H. Harold help Dracula battle Doctor Sun.[40]

Quincy Harker eventually made the ultimate sacrifice by detonating a bomb concealed in his wheelchair which destroyed him, Dracula, and much of the castle in which they met for the last time. Drake and Van Helsing discovered Harker's wheelchair, and the supposed death of Dracula.[41] Quincy's final letter to Rachel and Frank urged the two of them to grow closer together and discover what they all knew was there all the time. As a result, Frank and Rachel did attempt a romance but due to Frank's later account, Rachel was an empty shell without Dracula to fight and the two shortly parted but not without deep regrets. Rachel would eventually be turned into a vampire herself and die mercifully at the hands of X-Man Wolverine.[42]

Frank, upon hearing of Rachel's death realizes that Dracula is back and teams up with Blade, Hannibal King, and Doctor Strange to fight his return from the grave. Drake, King, Blade and Strange battled Dracula and the Darkholders, and were responsible for casting the Montesi Formula which destroyed Dracula and all vampires and banished vampirism from earth.[43] Drake, King (now cured of vampirism and the only vampire to survive the Montesi spell), and Blade decided to remain together and become private investigators, founding the firm of King, Drake, and Blade (aka Borderline Investigations). They would investigate any number of strange and not so strange cases, including a battle with the Darkholders. In their first appearance, Doctor Strange helped them battle the Darkholders.[44]

Drake, wishing for a more normal life, eventually left the firm. Apparently, the friendship between King, Drake, and Blade had soured. Drake moved to Washington D.C. and married Marlene McKenna, a woman he had met sometime after parting ways with Rachel. During this time, Marlene seemed to come under the power of Dracula and scarred her face to resemble Rachel's facial scars. Drake, reluctantly called a hostile Blade and the two, assisted by Blade's friend Katinka, eventually aborted Dracula's resurrection again. This resulted in Blade's nervous breakdown and institutionalization. Drake, determined to live a normal life with Marlene, declined an invitation from Katinka, to stay in touch. Katinka suspected that things were only beginning.

With the weakening of the Montesi spell, Dr. Strange realized that not only were vampires returning, but also an increased occurrence of supernatural invasions. On this realization, Strange arranged for the release of Blade and for Drake (whose wife Marlene had again mysteriously fallen ill), to meet him and King back at their old Borderline offices where King, who had been running the business by himself had to eventually close shop due to the return of his vampirism. None of them too glad to see the other, but each having their reasons for getting back together, they form the Nightstalkers; by day, they are private investigators, by night, they fight any number of supernatural villains.[volume & issue needed] Drake, armed with an anti-supernatural nanotech gun named Linda (after Linda Blair of The Exorcist) fights alongside Blade and King against various occult enemies. 'Linda' was engineered from Frank's blue prints by 'Silcon' Valle, a computer technician at M.I.T.[volume & issue needed]

In their first mission, the Nightstalkers are hired by Lilith to kill the second Ghost Rider and John Blaze, and battled Meatmarket.[45] Ghost Rider and Blaze then joined the Nightstalkers, Strange, and the Darkhold Redeemers in battling Lilith and her Lilin.[46] The Nightstalkers also battled HYDRA's DOA.[47] Alongside the Punisher, the Nightstalkers battled Shiv and Casim.[48] The Nightstalkers, with Ghost Rider, battled Stonecold.[49] The Nightstalkers next battled Morbius,[50] and battled Stonecold again.[51]

The Lilin are children of Lilith, an ancient demonic being. Their involvement with her brings them into the group known as the Midnight Sons. This includes both Ghost Riders, Victoria Montesi and her team, Doctor Strange and other heroes. In one of the many adventures involving this team, Drake helps deal with Blade, who temporarily goes insane due to the use of the Darkhold.

Eventually, they fight against the Atlantean vampire Varnae in which Drake overloads Linda causing an explosion that is thought to destroy him and Varnae (King having attempted to sacrifice himself by plunging a metal stake through his heart while fighting off vampire-lord Varnae's mental control). Blade escapes believing them to be dead but eventually runs into King in New Orleans who explains that Drake also survived but was left horribly scarred and crippled in both body and mind and would probably remain only a shell of his former self.

Frank Drake is a capable hand-to-hand combatant, and an experienced marksman. He has been known to carry conventional handguns. He also possesses a nano-tech weapon capable of disrupting occult energies, which he calls Linda.[volume & issue needed]

Frank Drake in other media[edit]

In the 2004 movie Blade: Trinity, the main villain uses the cover name of Drake.

Frank Drake appears in the anime Dracula: Sovereign of the Damned, voiced by Keiichi Noda in Japanese and by Dan Woren in the English dub.

Dreaming Celestial[edit]

The Dreaming Celestial (Tiamut the Communicator) is a Celestial. The character, created by Jack Kirby, first appeared in The Eternals #18 (December 1977). His origins were added in stories written by others and published decades later. Within the context of the stories, the Dreaming Celestial is a renegade Celestial named Tiamut. He claims that during the Second Host to visit Earth, he resisted the Host's decision to not turn the Earth over to the Horde and was exiled and his spirit trapped in the "Vial".[52] This remains sealed under the Diablo Range in California until it is discovered by Ghaur who temporarily releases the Dreaming Celestial's power.[53] He is reawakened by the Deviants and acts as a beacon for the Horde as he proceeds to "judge" Earth.[54] This leads to his confrontation with Fulcrum and his ascending from the state of being a Celestial.[55]

Dreamqueen[edit]

The Dreamqueen is the daughter of a succubus named Zhilla Char, and Nightmare, ruler of the Dream Dimension. Her birth killed her mother, and gave the Dreamqueen all her memories. She was born in a similar "dream dimension" of her own called Liveworld, of which she is the ruler. It was to this dimension that the fetus of Laura Dean instinctively sent her unborn twin sister, Goblyn. As the autistic Laura grew up, she discovered that she was able to switch places in Liveworld with her sister. After encountering Alpha Flight, Goblyn and Laura were admitted into Beta Flight under the mis-belief that they were one and the same person. She possesses a gifted intelligence, is entirely self-educated in the study of sorcery, and gains her powers through the manipulation of the forces of magic.

D'Spayre[edit]

Michael Duffy[edit]

Sgt. Michael "Mike" Duffy is a fictional character in Marvel Comics. The character, created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, first appeared in Captain America Comics #1 (March 1941).

Michael Duffy was the superior of Steve Rogers and James Barnes who were secretly Captain America and Bucky. He had a short temper and was always getting after his soldiers for "goldbricking". He was always picking on Rogers and Barnes for not being heroes, an ironic claim as he was unaware of their dual identities. He had nearly put two and two together, but would later deny the possibility.[56] At one point, Duffy showed remorse when he thought that Rogers and Barnes had died in a Japanese air raid, only to go back to berating them when he found out they were alive.[57] He also had a crush on Betsy Ross[58] though this was retconned to show that he had a lover overseas named Flo.[59] While out on a mission, Duffy and several soldiers were caught in an explosion. He survived and was recuperating in a hospital. Due to his lack of appearances afterwards, it's implied that he stayed in bed for the remainder of the war.[60] Years later, Rogers would visit Arlington National Cemetery to see his former commander's grave stone and reminisce on old times.[61]

Michael Duffy in other media[edit]

Michael Duffy appears in the 2011 feature film Captain America: The First Avenger and the 2014 sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier, played by Damon J. Driver. Duffy is once again Steve Rogers' commanding officer and much like Chester Phillips saw more promise in Gilmore Hodge then Rogers. He is not comically temperamental or mean towards Rogers and simply functions as a typical drill Sergeant.

Dum-Dum Dugan[edit]

Fred Duncan[edit]

Frederick Amos "Fred" Duncan is a fictional government liaison for the X-Men in Marvel Comics. The character, created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, first appeared in X-Men #2 (November 1963).

Fred Duncan was an agent with the FBI. Along with fellow agent Bolivar Trask, Duncan was asked by his superiors on how to handle the "mutant threat". While Trask felt that America should fear them, Duncan thought it was best to work alongside them. Duncan's idea was approved causing tension between him and Trask to the point that the latter suspected him to be a mutant as well.[62] He then teamed up with Wolverine to battle Lyle Doome who went by the name Virus.[63]

He met with Professor Charles Xavier and became the FBI's federal liaison with the X-Men. He was then provided a special headband so that he can communicate with Xavier whenever it was necessary. He helped Xavier with the eventual recruitment of Scott Summers.[64] As a member of the Xavier Underground, a network of mutant supporters, Duncan maintained mutant criminal records and stockpiled weapons and technology from X-Men foes.[65]

Duncan later helped the X-Men once again when the team had to break into the Pentagon to delete the files they had about their identities.[66] Henry Peter Gyrich suspected that Duncan had something to do with the files being deleted and demanded that he somehow get them back (the Department of Mutant Affairs answered to Gyrich's Project Wideawake), but Duncan instead resigned. Duncn then decided to write a tell all book about his time working with the mutants.[67] After Duncan's death, Carl Denti, an aspiring agent, takes the files, weapons, and technology for himself and assumes the name X-Cutioner, with the proclaimed mission of killing any mutant that has killed other people first.[68]

Fred Duncan in other media[edit]

While Duncan has not appeared in any other media, a character similar in purpose identified as Man in Black Suit appears in X-Men: First Class played by Oliver Platt. He takes on Xavier and his students for the CIA and monitors them for future missions. He is killed later on by Azazel.

Dyna-Mite[edit]

Dyna-Mite (Roger Aubrey), subsequently known as Destroyer, was a member of the Crusaders. The character first appeared as Dyna-Mite in Invaders #14–15 (March–April 1977). He also appears as Dyna-Mite in The Invaders #18–23 (July–December 1977). Aubrey, a close friend of the hero Lord Falsworth, one of the Union Jacks, supported peace between Germany and Britain. Around 1938, the pair went on a German tour. War began and the two quickly discovered the evils of the Nazis. Both were thrown in prison. Falsworth's connections helped him but he could not help Aubrey, who was taken away. German scientists experimented upon Aubrey, while Falsworth became the 'Destroyer', fighting a guerrilla war against Germany. Aubrey is shrunk to just 12 inches (300 mm) in height, but manages to keep the strength of a full size man. He was brainwashed and sent to fight the Allies. He was eventually captured and reprogrammed. He joins the superhero team, the Crusaders, as Dyna-Mite.
