Caiera is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was introduced during the "Planet Hulk" storyline. She first appeared in Incredible Hulk vol. 2 #92 (April 2006), and was created by Greg Pak and Carlo Pagulayan.
Within the context of the stories, Caiera was born on Sakaar to a tribe of Shadow People, the creators of the Old Power. She was raised by the priests to be a shadow warrior. When she was thirteen, her village was attacked by alien "spikes" that caused the other villagers to mutate into monsters. Caiera, the only survivor, was rescued by the Red Prince. When the Red Prince becomes the Red King, Caiera is his loyal lieutenant and the mother of his daughter. When the Hulk arrives on Sakaar and gains public support as a gladiator, she protects the Red King from him. After a failed attempt to ruin his popularity, the Hulk and his Warbound escape. Caiera is sent to kill the Hulk, but they encounter spikes during their battle. The Red King reveals he controls the spikes, devastating her. She turns against the Red King and aids the Hulk in a coup. Hulk becomes the Green King, and he marries Caiera. She becomes pregnant, but appears to die in the warp core explosion which laid waste to much of the planet. Hulk returned to Earth in World War Hulk. Although Caiera died, she posthumously - through the Old Power - gave birth to two sons, spawned from beneath the surface of the planet: Skaar and Hiro-Kala, who each found their own destiny.
Caiera possessed abilities that were derived from the planet itself. She could transform her body into stone and become incredibly resistant and strong, to the extent that she battled the Hulk to a standstill even when his strength and fighting skills had dramatically increased. She was also an expert fighter and tactician.
Other versions of Caiera
An issue of What If? examined what would have happened if Caiera had survived the explosion instead of Hulk. Angered at the loss of her husband, Caiera takes the entirety of her planet's energies into herself, vastly increasing her power. She then goes to Earth to avenge his death. She kills the Illuminati and enslaves Earth.

Caiera appears in the animated direct-to-video film Planet Hulk, voiced by Lisa Ann Beley. She follows the Red King loyally because he saved her from the Spikes that destroyed her village and her family. However, it later turns out that the Red King was the one who created the Spikes, thus he is responsible for destroying Caiera's village and killing her people. Once the truth is revealed, Caiera angrily severs her loyalty to the Red King and aids the Hulk and the Warbound into defeating him. Caiera then plants a Spike bug on the Red King, leaving him to be killed by his Death Guard robots (as part of their programming to kill any Spike infestation) as revenge for her tragedy. She then goes on to becoming the Queen Consort to Hulk, who accepts his new role as the new King of Sakaar.
While her name has never been revealed in the comics, for the convenience of this section she will be referred to by her name in the Netflix series. Alisa Campbell is the mother of Jessica Campbell, who would grow up to become Jessica Jones. While driving to Walt Disney World, Alisa got into an argument with her husband causing them to get distracted by driving into a military convoy that was carrying hazardous chemicals. The car swerved off the road and landed in an embankment, killing everyone except her daughter, Jessica.
Alisa Campbell in other media
Jessica's mother, named Alisa Jones (née Campbell), appears in the Netflix TV series Jessica Jones. She is presented as an amalgam of Jessica's actual mother and the woman who adopted her in the comics.
In season 1, Alisa is played by Miriam Shor. Her name comes from Alisa Bendis, wife of Brian Michael Bendis, creator of the comic book character of Jessica Jones. She appears in flashback in the episode "AKA WWJD?" where she attempts to stop an argument between Jessica and her brother Philip. They die when the car crashes into a truck filled with chemicals. She shows up in a nightmare convincing Jessica to get to work.
Alisa is a series regular in season 2, played by Janet McTeer. She is revealed to have survived the car accident, but is horribly disfigured. She and Jessica were treated at IGH, a private clinic specializing in gene editing. While Jessica was saved and discharged after three weeks, Alisa suffered more severe injuries and needed a longer recovery period. Dr. Karl Malus has to declare Alisa legally dead in order to save her life, because of the illegality of the operations. As a result of the intense gene therapy and reconstructive surgery, Alisa gained super strength similar to her daughter's, but she is also mentally unstable and is prone to dissociative episodes. She eventually breaks out of the IGH facility, and tracks down Jessica.
James Buchanan Barnes

Rosalie Carbone in other media
Rosalie Carbone is introduced late in season two of Luke Cage, played by Annabella Sciorra. Rosalie is first seen in "Can't Front on Me" attending an auction house with Anibal Izqueda, Eric Hong, and Hai-Qing Yang. In the episode "They Reminisce Over Your," Rosalie is among several gangsters that are seeking a slice of the void left by Mariah's arrest as it was mentioned that she was planning to expand into Harlem like her father did when he tried to drive the Stokes out. While some inmates loyal to her do an attempt on Mariah Dillard's life, Rosalie is visited by Luke Cage intimidating her into staying out of Harlem. Luke later goes into business with her and Anibal after Cage inherits control of Harlem's Paradise following Mariah's death.
Rosalie makes a later appearance in season three of Daredevil. In the episode "Revelations," she is one of several criminal figures that Wilson Fisk directs blackmailed FBI agents to round up for a secret parlay. Rosalie is picked up by Ray Nadeem and Benjamin Poindexter at a groundbreaking opening ceremony as Ray tells her to come quietly. She is taken along with four criminal figures John Hammer, Everett Starr, Latimer Zyl, and Sophia Carter to a fancy restaurant in Hell's Kitchen called the Red Fish Blue Restaurant where they're seated around a circular table for several hours. Rosalie was shown to be on good terms with Zyl. Fisk then shows up and offers the five criminal figures protection from prosecution in exchange for 20% of their profits. When Starr refuses the offer, Dex kills him by lobbing a baton at his forehead. Fisk uses this as an incentive to hike the tax to 25%, which Rosalie and the other crime lords hastily agree to. In the season 3 finale, Rosalie is later seen as one of the many criminal figures and socialites in attendance at Fisk and Vanessa Mariana's wedding. She comments to Fisk about him sitting her next to the prosecutor that tried to send her to prison and stated that she made him hold her purse. When Nadeem's posthumous confession implicating Fisk in the manipulation of the FBI is leaked onto the Internet, Rosalie along with Hammer and Zyl quickly take their leave before Dex attacks the wedding.
John Carik was featured as the main supporting character in the mid-1990s series Blade: The Vampire Hunter, and was created by Ian Edginton and Douglas H. Wheatley. He was exclusively referred to in the solicitations as Bible John, and the use of that nickname was established in the first issue. However, that name was rarely used in other issues. He is the one of the last of an order of warrior/scholars named the Cathari, who all take vows to combat the evil forces of the supernatural. Carik appeared in almost all of the ten issues of Blade: The Vampire Hunter (July 1994 to April 1995). Issue #6 was the only issue in which he failed to appear. The series was cancelled after ten issues leaving John Carik's story unfinished. Carik was attacked by a supernatural being of an undisclosed nature, the encounter giving him precognition. He was shortly thereafter contacted by and joined the Cathari. Carik is covered from head to toe in wards and sigils that he has carved into his own flesh which give him protection from supernatural beings.
Blade: the Vampire Hunter begins with Carik having a vision of the return of Dracula and the resulting destruction of New York City. His vision gives him the knowledge that Blade is the only one who can prevent the events from coming true. In order to warn Blade, Carik escapes from the Nyman Psychiatric Clinic and seeks him out. Once he finds Blade, Carik gives him a witch compass, a device for seeking out the supernatural.
Although he never made an appearance in the Blade films or in Blade: The Series, many of John Carik's character traits are visible in the character Abraham Whistler. He was originally intended to appear in Blade: The Series, portrayed by Marc Singer, but this plan was eventually scratched.
Luke Carlyle was created by J. Michael Straczynski and John Romita Jr., and first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man vol. 2 #43. He is a thief and con man who worked his way up the corporate ladder, eventually rising to a trusted position. When the CEO of the company he worked at discovered Carlyle was a fraud, Carlyle killed him. Lacking the time to act, and with most of the company's assets either gone or unreachable, Carlyle then hired Otto Octavius under the guise of helping to make him a legitimate researcher, and stole his mechanical appendages. He was finally defeated by a combined effort between Octavius and Spider-Man.
In other media
Luke Carlyle, also known as The Mad Bomber, appears in all the versions of the Spider-Man 3 video game, loosely based on 2007 the film of the same name, voiced by Neil Ross. He is the onlyvillain to appear in all versions, besides the three antagonists of the film itself: New Goblin, Sandman, and Venom. While as Caryle he is portrayed as a well-known and rich businessman, as The Mad Bomber he is the leader of the H-Bombers, one of the new gangs introduced in the game that are terrorizing New York City; their trademark is, as the name suggests, planting bombs wherever they go, as well as their high-tech costumes: either orange suits with a grey mask, resembling an environmental suit, or grey and black armored suits, equipped with a jetpack and light machine guns. The Mad Bomber is wearing a slightly modified version of this armored suit, as it is equipped with rocket launchers rather than machine guns, and its helmet is transparent, allowing people to see Carlyle's face.
In the first mission of most versions of the game (other than the Game Boy Advance version), The Mad Bomber leads the H-Bombers into attacking his own building, the Carlyle building, for unknown reasons (most likely to hide his real identity, as people wouldn't believe Caryle to be The Mad Bomber and have destroyed his own building), and they blow up several floors, when Spider-Man arrives to save the day. He defeats several bombers and disarms their remaining bombs, even saving a woman that was tied up to a bomb, but the H-Bombers manage to escape in their helicopter. Later, in the Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 version of the game, the H-Bombers have their own side plot and missions, with Spider-Man having to constantly foil their plans, such as an attack on the subway or disarming their bombs all over Financial District. Spider-Man later begins working with Detective Jean DeWolfe, who is also investigating The Mad Bomber and, in exchange for Spider-Man's help with some deals and crooked cops, she informs him of the H-Bombers attacking a nuclear power plant. Spider-Man foils their plan once again and finally confronts The Mad Bomber in person, discovering that he is Luke Carlyle, but he and his goons manage to escape once again in their helicopter. Shortly after, the H-Bombers make a final attack on the Daily Bugle and, although Spider-Man disarms their bombs through the building, the bombers escape with J. Jonah Jameson in their helicopter, who also discovers that Carlyle is The Mad Bomber. Spider-Man follows them and rescues Jameson when The Mad Bomber throws him out of the helicopter, taking him to a rooftop, where they are both attacked by the helicopter. Spider-Man destroys the helicopter, saving Jameson's life and foiling the H-Bombers' plans for the final time, but The Mad Bomber escapes and is never seen again in the game, although the H-Bombers would still occasionally pop out through the city, committing various small crimes on the streets.
In the PlayStation 2, Wii, and PlayStation Portable versions of the game, the H-Bombers storyline is shorter, as it features only two missions (besides the tutorial), the first one taking place shortly after the beginning of the game. This time, the H-Bombers focus their attacks on the Daily Bugle and plant bombs all over its Printing Plant and Regional Office, with The Mad Bomber sending a threatening call to J. Jonah Jameson right before the attacks, but Spider-Man learns about their plan from this call and is able to disarm all the bombs just in time. The second H-Bombers mission is very similar to their final one in the other version of the game, the only difference being that it takes place after unlocking the symbiote black suit (which can be taken on and off at will), and that The Mad Bomber directly fights Spider-Man, after he rescues Jameson and takes him to safety. Spider-Man defeats The Mad Bomber and destroys his helicopter, foiling the H-Bombers' plans for good, as they are never seen in the game afterwards.
In the Game Boy Advance version of the game, The Mad Bomber isn't the leader of the H-Bombers gang, but rather plants several bombs across the city all by himself. His plan is foiled and he is defeated by a black-suited Spider-Man.

Century is a fictional character, a superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was depicted as a member of the Force Works team in the series of the same name from 1994–1996.
Century was a genetic creation consisting of the minds of the hundred strongest and most able of the surviving alien Hodomurians. He possessed all their memories and instinctively used the knowledge he needed. Therefore, he was an expert on many topics and a very skilled fighter especially with his battle-staff, Parallax. His lifespan was apparently fixed at 100 years. He was sometimes seen levitating while in a deep meditative trance. He had a symbiotic rapport with Parallax, an entity which bound the multiple personalities of Century into a unified self.
Since developing amnesia, Century couldn't remember much about his past and often had to search for the right words which led to Century sounding like a thesaurus when he often used three similar words to express himself. Single memories returned when he was confronted with something from his past or he dreamt about it. After losing Parallax for a while, memories of his composite minds loosened and even after Parallax was returned to him he continued to remember bits from the lives of the Hodomur he was composed of.
To defeat the evil Nexus Being named Lore, responsible for the destruction of their world, the Hodomur race created Century, a being composed by the best 100 surviving Hodomur warriors. Possessing all of their memories, he was able to solve situations in many topics. He started a mission to track down Lore, but during inter-dimensional travel he was enslaved by Broker and brainwashed. Only the urge to find Lore was maintained on his mind. He soon became a "scout" for the evil alien race of the Scatter, that bought him from Broket. Following constantly Century, the Scatter could feast on the leftovers of the worlds destroyed by Lore. Century first encountered the superhero team Force Works when Scarlet Witch's magic brought the alien on Earth-616 following a battle against the Kree. Century knocked out Kalum Lo, then when questioned by Scarlet about his whereabouts, was able to say only his name. A few minutes later Scarlet Witch, Spider-Woman and U.S.Agent were all captured by the Scatter, that arriving on Earth following Century, caused also Wonder Man's apparent death. Iron Man questioned Century about the Scatter's whereabouts but Century knew only the name of their race and their evil goals, causing Stark to leave him behind. He was next to be brought to the Vault but escaped and teleported to Iron Man. Using the teleportation powers of his staff Parallax, Century helped Iron Man to rescue the team from an unknown world ravaged by the Scatter. He helped Force Works defeat these aliens. Getting quarter to the Works, he soon joined the team on a full basis participating to missions to Slorenia, China, Australia, and defeating the menace of the Starstealth once and for at all. During a brief travel to space aboard the ship of Broker, he was captured by the foe and sold to the mysterious Imogen. He was then freed by Azimuth, that was next to reveal the truth on his origins and life, but she was stricken by an energy blast of Imogen and fell comatose. After killing Broker for good, he returned to Earth, rejoining Force Works in time to help them unravel the plot of Kang (Immortus in disguise) that had on his side a corrupted Iron Man and Cybermancer, alternate version of scientist Suzi Endo. After Stark sacrificed himself to prevent Kang's plans, Force Works had to endure a last fight against alternate universe versions of Wonder Man, and Ultron, belonging to Cybermancer's reality. Force Works managed to resolve this situation. Before the team was disbanded, Century expressed the desire to learn more about his new homeworld, Earth. Force Works then responded to an emergency call starting for a final mission whose result remained unknown.
Century is later recruited by Wonder Man (whose ionic energy leaking problem was affecting his judgement) to join his Revengers in a plot to defeat the Avengers. He was easily defeated by the New Avengers. While incarcerated at the Raft, Century and the rest of Wonder Man's followers were interrogated about their motivations for joining the Revengers. Century stated that he sided with Wonder Man out of sense of honor to him and recognition of the cycle of life.
As his name and some of his history indicated, Century was meant to be the best of the 100 beings that made him up.
He was shown to have greater than human strength, agility, and endurance. Additionally by using Parallax, he was able to teleport through inter-dimensional space. He's also an expert hand-to-hand combatant.
He was often drawn as being taller than Iron Man or Hawkeye with long white hair and red markings over various parts of his body.
Century in other media
- Century was part of the supporting cast in the 1994–1996 Iron Man animated series voiced by James Warwick in Season One, Jim Cummings in "The Beast Within," and by Tom Kane in the two-part series finale. A scene in the episode "Data In, Chaos Out" gives Century a civilian identity as a man named Woody where he sports shades and a broad-brimmed hat. In "The Beast Within," Century was the one who told Iron Man that the Force Works team is relocating from Stark Industries following Iron Man's team-up with the Mandarin to stop Fin Fang Foom. In the two-part episode "Hands of the Mandarin," Century rejoins Force Works when Mandarin uses the Heart of Darkness crystal to disable all technology. He appeared to knock out Hypnotia when she was using her powers on Iron Man and War Machine.
The William Waring version of Challenger appeared beginning with the company's 1940s iteration as Timely Comics during the period fans and historians call the Golden Age of Comic Books. The Challenger first appeared in Daring Mystery Comics #7 (April 1941) from Marvel Comics predecessor Timely Comics, debuting in both a two-page text story, "The Valley of Time", by writer Ray Gill, and in the 12-page comics story "Meet the Challenger", by an unknown writer and artist George Klein, under the pseudonym "Nick Karlton". The character went on to appear in Mystic Comics #6-10 (Oct. 1941 - Aug. 1942), in eight- to nine-page stories by artists including Al Bare and Mike Sekowsky, and in at least one instance written by Stan Lee ("Horror Mansion", Mystic Comics #9, May 1942). The Challenger did not reappear for decades before making a brief appearance in Marvel Premiere #29 (April 1976), in a World War II period story featuring the homefront superhero team the Liberty Legion. The Challenger first appears in a modern-day story in She-Hulk #11 (March 2005), having "bounced forward" in time.
The Challenger is a demon that works as an agent for Mephisto. He was dispatched by Mephisto to drag Ghost Rider to Hell. At the time when Ghost Rider and Daimon Hellstrom were exorcising Legion from the body of Katy Milner, Challenger appeared and challenged Ghost Rider to a deadly race for the fate of Katy. Though he defeated Ghost Rider, Challenger was hit by Ghost Rider's hellfire attack where the spell that caused Katy Milner to be the cursed form of Roxanne Simpson to be broken.
When the Avengers and the New Avengers were displaced in the World War II era and collaborated with the Invaders, Peter Parker sported a green costume and took up the alias of Challenger when fighting Red Skull and the Nazis.
Elder of the Universe
The Elder of the Universe version of Challenger first appeared in Avengers #678 and was created by Mark Waid, Al Ewing, Jim Zub, and Pepe Larraz. An earlier member of the Elders of the Universe originally went by the name of Grandmaster until he lost it in a contest against En Dwi Gast whom he shared a gaming hobby with. This Elder was banished to the void of nothingness until the end of time. After the Multiverse was recreated following the end of the "Secret Wars" storyline, the Elder returned and took up the name of Challenger where he challenged Grandmaster to a rematch.
With Earth as the battleground, Challenger reassembled the Black Order to the point where he resurrected Black Dwarf, Corvus Glaive, Proxima Midnight, and restored Supergiant as a psychic projection. Challenger puts them up against Grandmaster's incarnation of the Lethal Legion. One of the challenges involved gathering the Pyramoids that are in different locations.
When it came to the final round, Challenger had an ace up his sleeve in the form of a resurrected Hulk. When Hulk destroyed the Pyramoid that was in Voyager's possession at the Avengers Auxiliary Headquarters, it cost the Challenger the victory he needed. Though they both heard Voyager's confession to the Avengers for her involvement with Grandmaster. Before Grandmaster can offer him a rematch, Challenger apparently disintegrated him and made plans to destroy Earth under the alias of Grandmaster Prime. He fought off Falcon, Hulk, Rogue, and Wonder Man until Voyager arrived with an army of Avengers to fight Challenger. Voyager's morale boost and power augmentation from Scarlet Witch enabled Challenger to be defeated. Voyager then took Challenger back to the Far Shore and shackled him to observe the Avengers' subsequent adventures where Voyager hopes that they can inspire him like they did with her. Challenger agreed to watch the Avengers until the day he is able to break free.
At the conclusion of the "Avengers: No Road Home," Voyager returned to the Far Shore only to discover that the Challenger had escaped his imprisonment and disappeared.
Champion of the Universe
Chewie is a fictional alien in Marvel Comics. The character, created by Brian Reed and Roberto De La Torre, first appeared in Giant-Size Ms. Marvel #1 (April 2006). Her alien origin was invented by Kelly Sue DeConnick and David López for Captain Marvel Vol. 8 #2 (June 2014).
An ordinary-looking cat was caught in between an intense fight between Carol Danvers, then known as Ms. Marvel, and Sir Warren Traveler inside a fiery building. Following this, the cat randomly showed up at Carol's apartment while she was about to give an interview. Carol opted to finally adopt the stray and calls her Chewie because she reminded her of the Star Wars character Chewbacca. Since then, Chewie made sporadic appearances as a comforting companion throughout Carol's career as Ms. Marvel and when she finally took up the mantle of Captain Marvel.
This all changed when Carol took Chewie into space with her and they encountered the Guardians of the Galaxy. Rocket Raccoon immediately identified Chewie as a Flerken, a species of alien that resembles the Earth cat, but in actuality are dangerous alien creatures. Rocket attempted to kill her before she laid eggs, but Carol stopped him as she did not believe Rocket. He ended up being correct, as Chewie laid 117 eggs that all immediately hatched. Carol, Rocket and their friend Tic had to take Chewie and her offspring to a rescue center where Carol planned to drop them off as she could not take care of them all. However, Chewie teleported back to their ship to be with Carol, leaving her offspring behind.

Use of sonic technology
Clash (Clayton Cole) is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Clash first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man Vol. 3 #1 (June 2014), and was created by Dan Slott and Ramon Perez. While he had a brief criminal career and was granted a spot on Parker Industries upon his reform, he regressed back to his criminal roots during the Civil War II storyline.
At a young age, Clayton Cole was a smart kid who was home-schooled by his mother. During his youth, he saw Peter Parker's Masked Marvel appearance going up against Crusher Hogan in a wrestling match. Since then, he started working on technology so that he can be like the "Masked Marvel". This led him to being Clash.
During the "Spider-Verse" storyline, Clash's latest employer was the Kree named Doctor Minerva. When Spider-Man was aided in battle Ms. Marvel and discovered that the latter has taken an Inhuman baby from Doctor Minerva, Clash turned against Doctor Minerva. Upon recognizing him and seeing that he has gone straight, Spider-Man offered Clash a job at Parker Industries which he accepted.
During the "Civil War II" storyline, the Inhuman Ulysses Cain had a vision where Cole is Clash again and attacks Spider-Man. Cole later meets Sully back when he used to work for Owl and can't talk long without violating parole. Later on, Clayton's parents are displeased that their son is working as an "office drone" while his father wants Peter to help with their retirement. While showing his latest project for the NYPD to Parker, Clayton is told that he should talk to him if he has any problems. Upon hearing Ulysses' vision of him when he arrives in Peter's office, Clayton resigns from Parker Industries. At Moynihan's Social Club, Clayton tells Sully and another person on how companies like Roxxon Energy Corporation are destroying the planet. Afterwards, Clayton meets Mendel Stromm who makes a reference to how Norman Osborn stole the former's work to be left poor. After providing Clayton with the Tinkerer's number, Mendel gives Clayton a day to consider helping in revenge on Harry Osborn. After calling Tinkerer who makes him an updated Clash suit, Clayton calls up Stromm. In his new suit, Clash arrives at Stromm's apartment where he finds Stromm in the Robot Master appearance and robots. Robot Master then compliments Clash's outfit and claims that Spider-Man won't know what happened. When Clash attacks Robot Master stating that he will look out for himself, Robot Master unleashes his robots on Clash even when Spider-Man arrives. Spider-Man manages to web Robot Master in the air with foam web. When Spider-Man was talking Clash into getting back to the civilized life, Robot Master rises and attacks them. While Clash flies away, Spider-Man defeats Robot Master by ripping the remote control mechanics from within the robot body, deactivating the robot army. When Clayton states that he was trying to protect Parker Industries from Stromm, Spider-Man stated that he caused harm with his technology, caused millions of dollars worth of damages, and violated his parole. Though Parker did talk to Clayton's parole officer where he stated that Clayton acted in self-defense and that Clayton will have to give up on working on sonic technology. Though Clayton doesn't seem to agree with Spider-Man's proposal to discontinue his work on his sonic technology which leads to Ulysses' vision coming true. After battling Spider-Man on the streets, Clash escapes and returns to the Moynihan's Social Club where he decides to be a crime boss.
Clash was seen at the closed Now Forever Nightclub where he discusses with his thugs the plans to take back his inventions that he made for Parker Industries to evade them being sold to pay off some debts. When Clash enters the Baxter Building to take back the Sonic Transducer, Harry sees that something is off and alerts Spider-Man and the Human Torch. Due to a self-charging power source getting stuck in the upward cycle, Clash had to work with Spider-Man and Human Torch to deactivate it. While Spider-Man catches Clash's thugs, he allows Clash to get away.
During the "Go Down Swinging" storyline, Peter later persuades Clash to look over the Osborn family in light of the Red Goblin's threat. At Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, Clash assists Human Torch in protecting the Osborn family from Red Goblin. Their attacks do nothing against Red Goblin because the Goblin formula made the Carnage symbiote immune to fire and sound.

Clash in other media
Clayton Cole / Clash appears in the Spider-Man animated series, voiced by Yuri Lowenthal. This incarnation is a teenager who specializes in sonic technology. In the episode "Osborn Academy", he competes with Herman Schultz for a spot in Osborn Academy where they use their different sonic devices enough for Spider-Man to intervene. The three-way battle was crashed by the Jackal who steals Herman and Clayton's technology with the help of a stolen Stark Industries tech. The two help Spider-Man by telling how to disable the tech. After Jackal gets away, Spider-Man brings Herman and Clayton back to Osborn Academy to face their actions as Spider-Man tells Osborn Academy's security team to grant them leniency. Norman Osborn takes the blame for driving the two boys into what had transpired. As Osborn grants Herman a spot in Osborn Academy, Clayton is told to try again next time much to Max Modell's objection.
Clayton Cole appears in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game, voiced by an uncredited voice actor. This incarnation is a street thug who is a friend of Herman Schultz that can be found in an alley along with a group of other street thugs. He has a special dialogue with Spider-Man and tells how to find Schultz and get information about Dennis Carradine.
In the late 1950s, radiation from a gaseous entity resembling a tiny comet mutagenically altered him, giving him superhuman flying and electrical powers, which he used as a costumed crimefighter. Decades later, he went to Xandar to aid its people in their war against the Skrulls as one of the Champions of Xandar. After his son Crimebuster died, the Comet chose to remain on Xandar.

Fictional character biography
Delphine Courtney was a servitor robot, built by the Roxxon Energy Corporation to serve Jerry Jaxon. The robot initially had a feminine shape and fully human appearance, and was referred to as "she" by its creators, to the point that Jaxon himself was unaware of "her" true nature. Courtney acted on Jaxon's behalf to recruit several superhumans that were former members of the Canadian government's training teams, Gamma Flight and Beta Flight, that were dismissed after the government closed Department H, the division that oversaw Gamma, Beta, and the primary team, Alpha Flight. Jaxon intended to form his own super-team, Omega Flight, in order to revenge himself on James MacDonald Hudson, founder of Department H and leader of the still-active Alpha Flight as Guardian, and through an "influencer" device built into its systems, Courtney was able to manipulate the already-disenfranchised recruits into seeking their own revenge on Alpha. However, Courtney was unable to influence Roger Bochs, inventor of the Box robot, who was still loyal to Hudson and the Flight program, forcing Jaxon to directly involve himself by taking control of Box.
Luring James Hudson and his wife Heather to America with an offer of employment at Roxxon's New York City holdings, Jaxon and Omega Flight executed an ambush of Guardian while Heather was detained by Courtney. When Heather made an attempt to escape and scuffled with Courtney, the robot's flesh-like facial covering was damaged and its true nature revealed. While Omega Flight's goal of revenge was attained with Guardian's apparent death, Courtney was witness to Jaxon's own death due to feedback from Box's destruction, and the remaining members of Omega were turned over to the New York City authorities.
Escaping capture, Courtney freed Omega Flight from jail and employed them in a new plot against Alpha Flight. Having its appearance reconfigured and incorporating facsimiles of Guardian's battle-suit technology into its systems, Courtney infiltrated Alpha Flight posing as a returned Guardian (using a cover story that was later revealed to be the actual fate of the real James Hudson), and eventually lured them into a second encounter with Omega Flight, using Alpha's trust of "Guardian" to ambush them. However, Omega Flight's victory was foiled by the arrival of the Beyonder, and Courtney and its team were forced to flee.
Their escape was blocked by Madison Jeffries, a former Flight trainee whom Courtney had avoided recruiting, fearing his ability to control machines and his loyalty to James Hudson. When Jeffries attacked with a construct created from an automobile, Courtney used one of the future duplicates of Omega Flight member Flashback as a human shield, resulting in its death (and the mental breakdown of the original Flashback, now condemned to violent death in his future). This enraged Jeffries, who used his powers to destroy Courtney, forcing its internal circuitry out of its mouth.
Roger Bochs and Madison Jeffries later salvaged portions of Courtney's second incarnation to construct a new battle-suit functionally identical to James Hudson's original, which was used by Heather Hudson under her husband's former identity of Vindicator.
Powers and abilities
Delphine Courtney possessed superhuman strength, and had a high degree of resistance to physical damage. Its sight and hearing were sharper than a human being's. It also possessed a device called an "influencer" that could affect pre-existing psychological conditions in the human mind, allowing Courtney to manipulate individuals with judicious use of the influencer combined with verbal interaction; however, it could not absolutely control human beings, as Roger Bochs' loyalty to James Hudson allowed him to resist its manipulations.
Courtney was also able to disguise itself as a human being with a flesh-like outer covering. It could masquerade as either gender by altering its underlying structure, and could even impersonate specific individuals convincingly enough to fool those close to the person imitated. While impersonating James Hudson/Guardian, Courtney also contained technology that could replicate the properties of Guardian's original battle-suits, granting it all of Guardian's super-powers.

Augustine Cross is a fictional character in Marvel Comics. The character, created by David Michelinie and John Romita Jr., first appears in Iron Man #145 (April 1981). He is Darren Cross's son and Crossfire's second cousin.
Taking over as his family company's CEO after his father's death, Cross attended the 24th annual Conclave of Electronics Engineers and Innovators, rubbing shoulders with various companies' representatives: Stark Industries, S.H.I.E.L.D., Cord Conglomerate and Roxxon. Thought to be connected with the Raiders' attacks, Cross was innocent as Edwin Cord was responsible.
Augustine later kidnapped Dr. Erica Sondheim to transplant a new heart into Darren's cryogenically preserved body. Enlisting Crossfire's aid, Augustine has Cassie Lang kidnapped, believing the girl's Pym Particle-irradiated heart could sustain Darren's condition. As Ant-Man and Darren fight while Sondheim transplants another heart into Cassie, Augustine arrives to transport Darren to ultimately flee when the Pym Particles now within in his father's body caused to shrink down.
In light of Darren's refusal to invest in Power Broker's Hench App, Augustine hires Machinesmith to hack into Power Broker's database so the Cross family could steal an algorithm to create the Hench App knock-off Lackey. Augustine gets injured during a showdown where Ant-Man and Stinger fight Darren and Crossfire, ending up comatose. Augustine's hospitalization leads to his father's recruitment of Egghead and the use of a powerful battlesuit.

Crule was sent by Gideon to attack X-Force after they rescued Sunspot. However, Crule is blasted out of X-Force's ship by Rictor and falls a few thousand feet, which puts him in a body cast.bCrule has enhanced senses, strength, speed, agility, reflexes, coordination, balance, and endurance. His body has natural weapons, including hair coiled into whip-like braids, fangs, and gauntlet-covered claws.
Danny Leighton was born in Austin, Texas. He was a member of the Savage Crims, a New York street gang, as a young man. He later became an assassin and was (as his first high-profile job) hired by Amos Jardine to kill Spider-Man, in place of the mad killer Arcade. Cutthroat battled Nightcrawler, who had gotten wind of the plan, and Spider-Man, and they defeated him with some secret assistance from Arcade himself.
Many years later, he defeated Mangler and Deathstrike in a fight to the death to become the Red Skull's new chief operative, replacing Crossbones. He underwent training by the Taskmaster. He tried to persuade Blackwing and Jack O'Lantern to help him free Mother Night from the police. He initiated a brief affair with Mother Night. With the Skeleton Crew, he battled Crossbones and Diamondback. He realized that Diamondback was his sister, Rachel, and revealed his true identity to her.
When Crossbones returned, Cutthroat feared he would be made redundant and so planned to kill Crossbones in his sleep. However, Mother Night alerted Crossbones to the plan, and so Crossbones was waiting for the "ambush" and slit Cutthroat's throat and he was seemingly killed. The Red Skull even inspected the apparent corpse. However, unknown circumstances show that he is alive and was an inmate in the Raft where he escaped with a lot of other convicts. He was later recaptured.[volume & issue needed]
The Hood has hired him as part of his criminal organization to take advantage of the split in the superhero community caused by the Superhuman Registration Act.[volume & issue needed] He helped them fight the New Avengers but was defeated by Doctor Strange.[volume & issue needed]
As part of the Hood's gang, he later joins the fight against the Skrull invading force in New York City. He joins with the Hood's gang in an attack on the New Avengers, who were expecting the Dark Avengers instead.
During the "Search for Tony Stark" arc, Cutthroat rejoined Hood's gang and assisted in the attack on Castle Doom.
