They slowly fail to realize that Stark and his fellow prisoner Ho Yinsen are actually building a suit of armor to escape and manage to do so, but not before scarring Raza's face. Raza and the Ten Rings later find remnants of Stark's Mk. I armor in the desert, but they were unable to rebuild the suit or understand its intricacies. He eventually contacted his benefactor, Obadiah Stane, who actually wanted Raza to kill Stark; Raza was unaware of who he was hired to kidnap and wanted Stark's weapons for himself.

Right-Winger (Jerry Johnson) is a veteran and superhero in the Marvel Comics universe.

The character, created by Mark Gruenwald and Paul Neary, first appeared in Captain America #323 (Nov 1986).

Within the context of the stories, Jerry Johnson was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was a veteran who had served 4 years in the U.S. Army with his friend, John Walker. Both became disillusioned and grew bored due to the lack of action during peace-time service. They both signed up for the Power Broker's strength augmentation process, and joined the Unlimited Class Wrestling Federation. Later, John Walker approached him to form a team of superhumans, known as the B.U.C.s (Bold Urban Commandos) or "Buckies". This team consisted of Johnson, Lemar Hoskins, and Hector Lennox, and they all wore variations of Captain America's costume.

Walker, now known as the Super-Patriot publicly spoke out against the original Captain America, and the Buckies pretended to be Cap's supporters. The Buckies staged opposition to Walker and pretended to attack him at a rally in Central Park as a publicity stunt. Walker defeated these protesters and proclaimed to Captain America that the people should decide who was worthy of being Captain America.[36] Eventually, the Commission on Superhuman Activities selected Walker to replace Steve Rogers as Captain America, and chose Lemar Hoskins to become his partner Bucky (and later as Battlestar).

Lennox and Johnson were left behind, feeling betrayed and angered. They chose the names Left-Winger and Right-Winger respectively. They wore stolen Guardsmen armor and battled Walker and Hoskins.[37] The pair upstaged the new Captain America at a patriotic rally and press conference, attacking him and revealing Walker's identity to the press out of jealousy over his new-found success.[38] As a result, Walker's parents were killed by the militia group The Watchdogs, nearly driving Walker into a mental breakdown. Walker blamed his former partners for his parents' deaths, and he stalked them. When he caught up to Left-Winger and Right-Winger, he tied them to an oil tank which was detonated by a torch-saber and left them to die.[39] They barely survived the explosion due to their bodies' enhanced physiology, leaving them terribly burned and in critical condition.

Later, Walker became the U.S. Agent and joined the West Coast Avengers. Left-Winger and Right-Winger, alongside several others, were plucked from different time periods by Immortus to serve in the third Legion of the Unliving. They battled U.S. Agent, who slew them again not believing them to be authentic.[40]

Eventually, it was revealed to Walker that the pair had survived the explosion and were hospitalized in Houston. After undergoing painful treatment for the burns they received, they had committed suicide. When Walker learned of this, he was remorseful.[41]

The symbiote, created by David Michelinie and Ron Lim, first appeared in Venom: Lethal Protector #4 (May 1993), and was named in Carnage, U.S.A. #2 (March 2012) after an unrelated black, four-armed action figure from the Planet of the Symbiotes toyline.

Riot's first host was Trevor Cole, a mercenary hired by the Life Foundation in San Francisco. Trevor is one of the employees to be bonded with symbiotes alongside Scream (Donna Diego), Agony (Leslie Gesneria), Lasher (Ramon Hernandez) and Phage (Carl Mach). Riot and his four symbiote "siblings" are defeated by Spider-Man and Eddie Brock.[45] The symbiotes "siblings" later kidnap Brock out of prison in an attempt to communicate with their alien symbiotes in Chicago. When Eddie refused to aid, Trevor was killed with a sonic knife after Leslie and Carl; the others were mislead into thinking Brock was picking the group off but Scream, having snapped from Donna's schizophrenia and the Scream symbiote's influence, was the killer.[46]

The Riot symbiote later merged with three other symbiotes (Phage, Lasher and Agony) into the Hybrid symbiote,[47] until a military group later separated the four symbiotes for the U.S. Government.

Riot's second host was Howard Ogden, a Petty Officer assigned the Riot symbiote within the Mercury Team special force. When Carnage is loose in Colorado, Howard trained for months with specific tasks alongside Phage (Rico Axelson), Lasher (Marcus Simms) and Agony (James Murphy).[48] Unfortunately, Howard and his teammates were later killed by Carnage in their secret base.[49]

However, the Riot symbiote and the other three symbiotes bonded to Deadpool to fight Carnage, and then bonded with Mercury Team's dog (the sole survivor of Carnage's attack against the taskforce) after the fight.[50]

During the end of "Secret Invasion", Riot altered herself back to her human form, succumbing to the fatal transition and passing away with dignity as a human. It is later revealed that she survived working with Ryder grudgingly. Riot also looks on Match.com for a lesbian partner but she has trouble reverting to her human form again. Eventually, she learns to control her transformation from insectoid to human form. She meets the Skrull Eva and they fall in love, repeatedly defending her love interest against others.[51][52]

Decibel[edit]

This version (also known as Decibel) is a member of Heavy Mettle. The character, created by Karl Kerschl and Jay Faerber, first appeared in New Warriors Vol 2 #4 (January 2000). Riot's armor generates sonic energy which can be used in a concussive manner.[53][54][55]

She has dealt with the Thing,[57] Black Cat,[58] Kitty Pryde[59] and John Byrne himself.[60] She famously took down the Trapster with a single fling and promptly called the authorities.[61] When Kristoff Vernard blew up the Baxter Building, he also destroyed Roberta.[62]

When the Baxter Building was rebuilt, so was Roberta with her memories intact.[63] She showed some slight confusion over the sight of seeing Doctor Doom with Alicia Masters and for once was unsure of what to do.[64] She was ripped from her circuits by Mad Thinker when his mind was trapped in the body of the Awesome Android.[65] Reed was able to rebuild her, however.[66] She once again showed minor interest in the strange going ons around her. She witnessed Luke Cage drive his car through the Baxter Building and then witnessed him fight the Thing.[67] Scott Lang has deduced that Roberta is incapable of sarcasm as she cheerfully told Alicia "you're welcome" after it was apparent that her thanks was sarcastic.[68] She also prefers to call herself a "mechanized human".[69]

Roberta received a redesign when the Four Freedoms Plaza was donated to the Thunderbolts.[70] While the original design was still had blonde hair and wore glasses, the Four Freedoms Plaza version had black hair while the Thunderbolts Plaza version had long brown hair.[71] Roberta got another redesign, this time she had a full, silvery humanoid body and was first seen meeting with new Fantastic Four writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.[72] She has since started dating former killer robot turned assistant mail man Elektro and the two has since started living together.[73][74]

While at an Anti-Nazi rally, Bernie ran into her ex-husband Sammy Bernstein. Bernie tried to reconnect with her ex, but was appalled at his violent behavior. Steve stepped away to become Captain America and when the violence was halted and Sammy taken away, Bernie came to the sudden realization that Steve and Captain America were one and the same. After avoiding each other for the day the two spoke and Bernie accepted Steve's double life.[81] From that point on, Bernie became another love interest who patiently waited for her hero to return.[82][83][84] Eventually Steve proposed to Bernie.[85] Due to an increase in rent, Bernie had to close her store, 'The Glass Menagerie'.[86] She decided to pursue her interest in law and applied for various colleges. After some worry she was accepted in University of Wisconsin–Madison.[87] Bernie took off for college, leaving a note behind for Steve, as she felt he had a lot on his mind.[88] She continued to collect newspaper clippings of Captain America, until he came to visit and internally admitted that she no longer wished to be engaged to him.[89]

Eventually, Bernie graduated summa cum laude and had since moved on from Steve.[90] Nevertheless, she continued to rely on him for future conflicts, or whenever she needed a friend.[91][92] She later met up with Steve's then current girlfriend, Rachel Leighton, and even though there was slight animosity toward each other, with Bernie slightly having her feelings reignited for Steve, the two became friends. Bernie then got a job as a junior partner at the law firm of Sullivan and Krakower.[93][94] Bernie continued to update herself on Captain America's exploits and even defended Bucky Barnes from Doctor Faustus.[95][96]

Bernie Rosenthal in other media[edit]

A similar character named Bernice Stewart appears in the 1990 film adaptation of Captain America. This version is slightly combined with Peggy Carter as Steve Rogers' fiancé in the 1940s. After Steve is lost in the Antarctic, Bernice moved on and married another man and has a daughter named Sharon. Steve wakes up in present-day and reunites with Bernice, but their happy reunion doesn't last long as the Red Skull's men arrive and kill Bernice and her husband.

Rynda[edit]

Queen Rynda is a member of the race known as the Inhumans in the Marvel Universe. The character, created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, first appeared in Thor #148 (January 1968).

The wife of King Agon, Rynda ruled the Inhumans alongside her husband whom she was devoted to. Her Inhuman ability allowed her to be immune to poisons. While pregnant with her son Black Bolt, Agon exposed her to the Terrigen Mists resulting in Black Bolt being born with immense powers. Due to her immunity, Rynda was able to resist going through second Terrigensis.[97] She was killed alongside her husband by the Kree.[98]

Rynda in other media[edit]

Rynda appears in Inhumans played by Tanya Clarke. She and her husband Agon were unintentionally killed by Black Bolt.[99]
