Fallen One was the first Herald of the cosmic entity Galactus and is empowered by dark energy, but he is imprisoned by Galactus for his cruelty. The Fallen One escapes and repeatedly attacks Galactus. Star-Lord imprisons the Fallen One in the Kyln, an intergalactic prison. He escapes to attack Galactus again, but is mentally enslaved by Thanos. Fallen One is killed by the Proemial Gods Tenebrous and Aegis.
The Fallen One, unlike later Heralds, is granted control of black matter, the "binding halo by which galaxies are made solvent". The character can use this matter to augment strength and durability, project energy, create black holes and pocket dimensions, manipulate time and space, control the electromagnetic spectrum, and transmute matter. The Fallen One is capable of travelling faster than the speed of light and is immune to the rigors of space.
Arnold "Arnie" Lundberg is a mutant who was born with the right-hand side of his face hideously scarred. Children in his local town mocked and ridiculed him, as did many others. The result of this was a beating that left him badly hurt and comatose. As he lay comatose, he heard the recorded voice of U-Go Girl (Edie Sawyer), recorded for publicity reasons, which stirred him out of his inert state. He soon revived completely.
Arnie Lundberg claimed to be the biggest X-Force fan in the world, especially of U-Go Girl. He blamed the Orphan for killing his favorite member. It was eventually revealed that he was a mutant and was using his powers to control a small town in Minnesota. He was also psychically sending images of U-Go Girl into the Orphan's mind in hope that Guy would attack him. Preparing for the attack, he unleashed an army of the dead to attack Solomon O'Sullivan's super team, O-Force. The Orphan arrived and saved the team and confronted Arnie who sent him flying out a window and into the undead army. Guy was saved by X-Statix and Guy convinced Arnie to turn his powers to healing the mess he had caused. First sending him to Charles Xavier after having presented him as deceased to the public, the Orphan then nominated Arnie for X-Statix membership so that they could keep an eye on him.
Arnie joined the X-Statix as the "Mysterious Fan Boy", with his identity concealed from the public with a mask. Lacuna, who could move between seconds, removed his mask on live TV, revealing his identity to the world. To prove that he had changed his ways, "Fanboy" joined X-Statix on a mission against the indestructible Razorhead where he had a heart attack after killing Razorhead and saving the team. After he died, the Orphan argued with Lacuna over his decision to have Lacuna inject him with a chemical that caused Arnie's heart attack.

When Xavier died he actually went to Mimic and Weapon Omega asking to get rid of his powers, but when Cyclops and his Uncanny X-Men force Mimic and Weapon Omega to join his mutant revolution, ForgetMeNot makes Mimic and Weapon Omega copy his powers and Cyclops forgets about them.

After several defeats by Daredevil, Iron Man, and Spider-Man, which eventually landed him in jail, Vincent eventually decided to retire and go straight. Eugene dons his father's costume as the Fabulous Frog-Man in an attempt to be a crime-fighter. His two major enemy villains are the White Rabbit, a comedic villain inspired by the Alice in Wonderland character, and the Walrus, a dimwitted character who essentially had the proportionate abilities of a walrus (tough skin and super-strength).
Frog-Man has a tendency to capture villains simply by dumb luck. Eugene's inability to fully pilot his automated Frog-Man costume causes him to wildly bounce around, defeating villains by crashing into them. The White Rabbit and Walrus team up to get revenge on Frog-Man, going on a rampage and luring not only Eugene, but also his father and Spider-Man. Once again, however, they are defeated by Eugene crashing into them.

Within the context of the stories, Carmilla Frost is born in 1994 in an alternate-future Earth designated Earth-691 by Marvel Comics. In 2001 she is taken with her father Andre to the Martians' Yankee Stadium Genetic and Clonal Complex. Andre is coerced to serve the Martians in performing cloning research by threats to his child. In 2004 she begins assisting her father in his experiments, and eventually becomes an expert molecular biologist. By 2010 she becomes the youngest human designated as a Keeper by the Martians. However, in 2014 she refuses to conduct cloning experiments on other humans. Two years later, after a Martian Overlord slew Andre, she agrees to try to clone his corpse in an attempt to restore him to life. Her efforts fail, instead producing the mutated creature Grok. In 2018 she helps Killraven escape from captivity from the Yankee Stadium Genetic and Clonal Complex and joins his Freemen.[volume & issue needed] In 2020 she learns that she is pregnant with the Freeman M'Shulla's child.[volume & issue needed]
Christian Frost is the only son in the Frost family with his sisters Emma Frost, Adrienne Frost and Cordelia Frost, and the only non-mutant of his siblings. Of his family he was closest to Emma, often supporting her in her times of need.
Christian was the one member of the family who didn't want to have anything to do with the family business. Yet when his father learned Christian was gay and threatened to disown him if he didn't break up with his boyfriend and move back home, he defied his father and left the family, only remaining in contact with Emma. When Winston retaliated by using his great power and influence to have Christian's boyfriend framed and deported, Christian became deeply depressed and turned to substance abuse, eventually attempting suicide. Emma discovered him in time and he lived, though his depression and substance abuse continued.
Emma became very worried for Christian and asked their father to get him help. Winston claimed that he would help Christian but lied and instead sent him to a mental institution. He eventually went insane in the asylum, possibly from the drug use.
The Fulcrum is a fictional cosmic entity in the Marvel Comics universe. He first appeared in issue #7 of the Eternals comic book series, debuting in "Manifest Destiny". He appears in four issues in total.
The Fulcrum is an abstract entity served by the Celestials, the Watchers, and the Horde. The Dreaming Celestial has conversed with it and describes it as "the very essence of what holds reality in its place". He goes by the name "Jack" and runs a bar where the Eternals hang out in the afterlife. The Fulcrum may be Marvel's most powerful entity next to The One Above All, or may be an alias of The One Above All as both have visually appeared drawn as Jack Kirby (an old Kirby as The One Above All and a young Kirby as The Fulcrum). The Fulcrum has also been referred to as the bartender.
