Afterwards, it appears he was humbled somewhat after witnessing Roger's heroics.
Ted Hoffman is the nebbish and timid assistant to J. Jonah Jameson. He constantly tries pitching ideas to his employer who either turns them down or outright steals from him. The most glaring example being in Spider-Man 2 when Hoffman pitched the name "Doctor Octopus" to Jameson who calls it crap only for him to establish it as Octavius' name as if he came up with it himself. Hoffman has trouble speaking up and due to this is constantly getting yelled at by Jameson.
Ironically, Hoffman has no established connection with Peter Parker and, much like everyone else, is oblivious to his double identity as Spider-Man. He at least seems to think he is a decent person, but there is never a moment that the two ever really interact. He seems to think that Spider-Man is a hero, but due to constantly being submissive to Jameson he hardly ever has a say in the matter.
While his first name is never said in the films, the novelizations by Peter David reveal that his first name is, in fact, Ted after the actor who plays him.

Hope is the granddaughter of the owner of Ling Industries. The rest of her family was killed by the Phalanx while visiting Switzerland. It was initially assumed that she was protected by a mutant ability of immunity against infections. She was infected by the transmode virus and was infectious to others by touch, but did not suffer the transformation usually associated with the virus. Imprisoned and experimented on by Mainspring research facility, she was later freed by and shortly allied with Warlock.
Ultimately it was discovered that her actual mutant power was not immunity from infection, but transmutation. She could alter the molecular structure of matter she could touch by conscious thought. So she was not actually infectious with the virus (which she had transmuted into harmless matter, hence her not suffering from its effects directly), but had assumed that she was, and her abilities transformed objects she touched into transmode virus infected material. Ultimately she learned she could transmute matter into other materials (such as glass) and so would not spread the transmode infection anymore.
She also is accompanied by her pet monkey, Chi-Chee.
Horde is the name of two fictional characters and one species.
The first Horde was an alien warlord. He had a shard of the Crystal of Ultimate Vision on his forehead, which made him invincible and immortal. Desiring the rest of the crystal, Horde coerced the X-Men to travel to the Citadel of Light and Shadow, where the crystal was hidden. As the X-Men entered, the citadel created illusions of each's most powerful desire. Only Wolverine was able to resist. He reached the crystal, only to discover that Horde had used the X-Men to distract the citadel's defenses. Horde cut Wolverine down, and removed his heart as a trophy. From that act, a lone drop of Logan's blood splattered onto the Crystal, which gave out enough energy for Wolverine to be restored. Empowered to godhood, Wolverine plucked the crystal shard from Horde's forehead, and the tyrant aged and withered to dust in seconds.
A species known only as the Horde first appeared in the final issue of Neil Gaiman's The Eternals. They are referred to as "the locusts of the universe", and have been recently drawn to Earth because of the awakening of the Dreaming Celestial. They apparently exist as the anti-thesis of the Celestials, harvesting worlds whose Deviant population become the dominant species. Both the Horde and the Celestials serve the mysterious "Fulcrum", which is the force that governs the ways of the universe.
The second being to take the name Horde was a collective being, the result of several citizens and a dog of Stoneridge, New Mexico being fused together after getting caught in the edge of a Gamma radiation dome created by the Leader. The resulting fusion caused the people to go insane, and were convinced by the Leader that the Warbound, who were helping people to escape the dome, were hostile invaders. After the Leader is defeated, Horde joins the Warbound in protecting the remaining citizens of Stoneridge.[volume & issue needed] It possesses a degree of gamma-enhanced strength, enough to fight the Warbound to a standstill. It also possesses a collective intelligence, albeit an unbalanced one, which leaves it highly susceptible to persuasion.
Horrocks was one of Jamie Braddock's best buddies when they were young, together with Amina Synge and Godfrey Calthrop. They disappeared in a sandstorm on the Sahara Desert during a Trans-Sahara Ralye which only Jamie escaped. They were contacted by the First Fallen, and returned years later, trying to reach Jamie to complete the First Fallen plans, fighting the X-Men in the process. The First Fallen take the Foursakens and the X-Men to The Singing City, a "heaven" created by him. It is said that humanity will live on in this new place, but it is soon discovered only four humans will make the cut. All others will not.
In the climactic action, Horrocks attacks the First Fallen. The First Fallen takes retribution and kills Horrocks. The others escape when Jamie sacrifices himself and sends the others back to the 616 universe.

Horus is a fictional character appearing in the Marvel Universe, based loosely on the Horus of Egyptian mythology. He first appeared in Thor #240 (Oct 1975), and was adapted from mythology by Bill Mantlo, Roy Thomas, and Sal Buscema
Horus was revealed to have been imprisoned with Osiris and Isis in a pyramid for three thousand years by Seth. He encountered Thor and Odin when the Pyramid appeared in New York. He participated in the Ceremony of Rebirth which reincarnated Odin as Atum-Re and briefly battled Thor. Horus aided Osiris, Isis, and Thor in defeating Seth. Horus, Osiris, and Isis regained their freedom and returned to Heliopolis.
During the Secret Invasion, Atum mentions that Horus (his great-grandson) asked him to help fight the Skrull gods as part of the God Squad.
Horus has all the powers of a member of the race of superhumans known as the Egyptian gods of Heliopolis. He has superhuman strength, stamina, durability, agility, and reflexes, resistance to all Earthly diseases and some resistance to magic. Horus possesses the power to project solar energy, focused through his staff with a large blade at one end.
Horus appears as a member of a team of Avengers from a parallel reality where Egypt is the dominant super power. He serves the ruler of this dimension, the female Sphinx and kills in her name. As the god of the team, he serves the role traditionally held by Thor or Hercules. In this alternate timeline, Horus uses a large ankh as the focus for his solar energy.
Hoss is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by writer Garth Ennis and artist Clayton Crain. He is a demon, an enemy and occasional ally of the Ghost Rider. He debuted in Ghost Rider (Road to Damnation) #1, 2005. Hoss has been described as "one of Hell's most able tracker-scouts". He first appeared in Ghost Rider (Road to Damnation) #1 (Nov. 2005)
Hoss has stated that he arrived in Hell after committing suicide out of embarrassment, but the truth of this claim is unclear. He serves as one of Hell's tracker-scouts, travelling the earth to do his masters' work. Hoss crosses paths with the Ghost Rider (Johnny Blaze) while trying to recapture the renegade demon Kazann – Hell has sent Hoss to recapture Kazann, whereas the angel Malachi has rescued the Ghost Rider from Hell and sent him to achieve the same task. The two initially clash, but then join forces when facing the third being hunting Kazann – the archangel Ruth.[volume & issue needed]
Kazann is eventually defeated by the three hunters and the Ghost Rider finds himself returned to Hell, betrayed by Malachi. It emerges that Malachi and Kazann have been secretly plotting together since Lucifer's rebellion, using Heaven and Hell to advance their own careers.[volume & issue needed]
Malachi then descends to Hell to confront (and perhaps silence) the Ghost Rider – only to be ambushed by Hoss and Ruth, who easily defeat him. Hoss apologizes to the Ghost Rider, explaining that he lacks the power to free him from Hell – but offers a consolation prize, a chance for the Ghost Rider to share his torment with the defeated Malachi.[volume & issue needed]
Hoss has displayed a wide range of superhuman abilities, some of which have not been clearly defined. Physically, he appears to be superhumanly strong and durable. He's also able to modify his 'human' body – repairing it, extruding tentacles or shifting into a more obviously demonic form.
As well as his physical abilities, Hoss has a range of magical powers. He can track other demons and seems able to transport himself (and his allies) between earth and Hell. He was able to casually – and instantly – kill a biker gang who annoyed him, without physically touching them.
Hoss created his servant Buttview from a maimed and dying human, rebuilding his broken body and modifying his form. This ability may require a willing subject, as Hoss asked for the dying man's consent before he started work.

Within the context of the stories, Hyperstorm is Jonathan Richards, the son of Franklin Richards and Rachel Summers from an alternate future reality designated Earth-967 by Marvel Comics. With his ability to manipulate reality and his psionic abilities, he conquers most of his home reality and turns to extend his rule to other timelines.
