List of Marvel Comics characters: O
Blackjack O'Hare is a mercenary and leader of the Black Bunny Brigade. He was hired by Judson Jakes and Lord Dyvyne to kidnap Lylla, the C.E.O. of Mayhem Mekaniks. He planned on betraying his employers by marrying Lylla and inheriting the company, but was found out. He was rescued by Rocket Raccoon and after a series of incidents that caused him to question his own loyalty, he aided Rocket in defeating the tyrants and left with his new friends to start a new life.
All this appeared to be false when Rocket visited Halfworld and discovered that Blackjack, along with Lylla and Wal Rus, were all actually service animals for the mental patients who inhabited the planet. Blackjack married Lylla after Rocket left to ensure the imprisonment of a dangerous criminal.
However, this story was immediately retconned as Blackjack returned as a mercenary and adversary to Rocket and Groot. Blackjack was once again working for Dyvyne with his next assignment being that he kidnap Princess Lynx. Rocket, Groot and Wal Rus arrived to defeat Blackjack, his brigade and Dyvyne, once again.
He turned up again, disguised as an impostor Rocket and framing him for a series of murders. He reveals his identity to Rocket and claims that the reason for framing him was that he ruined his chance to assassinate Princess Amalya and destroyed his reputation in the process. Amalya had become a "General" and arrived with Rocket's ex's in an effort to exterminate him themselves. Blackjack considered the possibility of assassinating her now, but was shot by Amalya because he was talking out loud. As a last ditch effort he fires a missile at Rocket, but it gets deflected and Blackjack is presumably killed.

- Genji Odashu
She joined alongside her friend Nakia to be among T'Challa's wives-in-training. However, when Okoye discovered that T'Challa had no interest in marrying either of them, she immediately came to accept this. She has since stood at T'Challa's side preferring only to speak in Hausa. Okoye accompanied T'Challa when he recruited Queen Divine Justice. She was also with T'Challa when they tested Kasper Cole on whether he was worthy of the Black Panther garb. Okoye herself tested Kasper if he would stay with his pregnant girlfriend or leave her for Okoye.

After seeing that T'Challa is alive, and thus still legally King with the personal combat challenge incomplete, she leads the Dora to fight against Killmonger the moment he invalidates his own claim by refusing to continue the challenge. During W'Kabi's fight with M'Baku, Okoye eventually convinces W'Kabi to stand down causing those fighting alongside him to also stand down.
- Okoye returns in Avengers: Infinity War.
Old Man Logan
Omega the Unknown
One Above All
|First appearance||Fantastic Four #511 (May 2004)|
|Created by||Mark Waid, Mike Wieringo|
|Abilities||Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent|
|Aliases||Above All Others, God|
When a pregnant Susan Storm feared for her husband's possible death at the hands of the "all-powerful", the Silver Surfer and Uatu the Watcher tell her that there is only one true all-powerful being and his only weapon is Love. When Doctor Strange encountered Eternity, the abstract entity stated that only God is the ruler of all realities. When Thor compared his power with Odin and other gods and abstract entities, he notes that the Creator of All Universes must be far more powerful than all of his creations combined.
The Living Tribunal was stated to be the representative of the One whose might far exceeds that of Eternity. Master Order and Lord Chaos wished that the Supreme Will may smile upon Adam Warlock, who also described the Living Tribunal as the servant of the being above even the gods. When the Cosmic Cube Kubik met the Living Tribunal, the being also stated the same thing about himself and again when he undoes the destruction caused by Adam Warlock with the Infinity Stones. When Protégé tried to become the most powerful being in the existence, he was instead absorbed by the Living Tribunal, who stated that it was impossible to be more powerful than his supervisor and wished he may forgive Protégé.
When the Thing's soul was trapped in a place between life and death, the rest of the Fantastic Four located the Thing's soul and came across the One-Above-All, who restored the Thing back to life and promised to the team that new wonders would be discovered. When the Cosmic Ghost Rider was retconned into the story, the One Above All stated that the Rider was not one of his creations and denied him access to his room, leaving the Rider to talk to his actual creator who resembled Donny Cates and was also living in the same place as the One Above All. He then encouraged a grieving Peter Parker to keep his faith even in his Aunt May's death. When a bartender asks Mephisto about the nature of the Living Tribunal, the demon states that he is just the biggest kid in the playground compared to the principal.
After Thanos' reality of Earth-616 is destroyed, he and an alternate version of Adam Warlock come in contact with the One-Above-All, who existed outside time and space. Thanos convinces the being to restore Earth-616 in exchange for Warlock becoming the new Living Tribunal.
One Above All (Celestial)
One Below All
|First appearance||Immortal Hulk #5 (November 2018)|
|Created by||Al Ewing, Joe Bennett|
|Abilities||Source of gamma radiation; ruler of lowest layer of Hell|
|Aliases||Breaker of Worlds|
The One Below All is the "dark reflection" of the One-Above-All, created by Al Ewing and Joe Bennett, and first appeared in Immortal Hulk #5 in the form of Bruce Banner's father, Brian Banner. Alluded to as the qlippoth, or "Hulk", of God, the One Below All is a malevolent and destructive force; when it speaks, it states that "I howl through many mouths. I break with many hands. They are themselves, but they are also me. I have all the power you give me and my weapon is hate.", in contrast to the One-Above-All's statement that "I see through many eyes. I build with many hands. They are themselves, but they are also me. I am all-powerful. My only weapon is love.". The One Below All is alluded to as the source of all gamma mutations in the Marvel Universe.
The One Below All resides in the Below Place, which is the lowest layer of Hell. It, as well as the Below Place, is kept behind a metaphysical 'Green Door'. This was first discovered by Brian Banner in a dream. The One Below All is also assumed to be the reason Brian began to drink, lose his mind, and eventually kill his wife. When it came to the day of the first gamma bomb test, helmed by Bruce Banner, the One Below All's powers were released when the power of its detonation partially opened the Green Door and created the first gamma mutate, the Hulk.
The One Below All possessed Jailbait of the Riot Squad who lost control of her powers. When she died, her brother Hotshot had to hold a church hostage in order to perform the last rites of Jailbait. He claimed that Jailbait was possessed by the devil. Then the One Below All possessed Sasquatch after he was killed in a bar fight. This drove Sasquatch on a feral rampage until the Hulk defeated Sasquatch and drained the gamma energy out of him until Sasquatch regressed back to Walter Langkowski. Through this absorption of Sasquatch's gamma energy, the One Below All then transferred into Banner, mocking the Hulk from within Banner's mind with the image of Brian Banner. Brian's ghost was able to regain some control of himself and told the Hulk about the One Below All's plan to enter and control a host body.
The One Below All managed to gain control of the Absorbing Man's body through an experimental procedure using gamma radiation to make him strong enough to fight the Hulk. When his soul encountered the One Below All, the Absorbing Man was unable to comprehend its true form, so much so that his physical body was possessed and split in half, and made its way to the site of the first gamma bomb detonation. While fighting the Hulk, The One Below All absorbed a great deal of his gamma energy, rendering him weak and misshapen. The two reached a stalemate, with the Hulk reabsorbing energy only for the Absorbing Man to take it back again, until Puck uses a specialised weapon to blast a hole through the Hulk's chest, while the Absorbing Man escapes. Using the ambient gamma radiation from the gamma bomb's detonation, The One Below All uses the Absorbing Man to open the Green Door and plunges New Mexico into the Below Place.
After the Hulk and Bruce Banner split apart, the One Below All appears in its 'true' cloud form as it prepares to take over the rest of Earth. When the Hulk opposes its plan, the One Below All unleashes demons, shaped like the empty 'husks' of people, on him, one in particular the husk of General Ross, which transforms into a husk of the Red Hulk to fight. With help from the Absorbing Man and Puck, the Hulk was able to reabsorb the Absorbing Man's gamma radiation and use his thunder clap to disperse the One Below All's cloud form and end his threat to the world.
Doctor Strange later spoke to Mephisto about removing the One Below All's possession from the Hulk after the brief Defenders reunion. Mephisto, however, states that the One Below All is far stronger than he is.
A flashforward to the end of the Marvel Universe shows the One Below All to have taken over the body of the Hulk and consumed the sentience of the cosmos, forcibly taking on the same role as Galactus for the next iteration of the multiverse and becoming the "Breaker of Worlds".
Opal Tanaka is known primarily as the former girlfriend of Bobby Drake (Iceman), a member of the mutant superhero team called the X-Men. Tanaka was first introduced in issue #51 of X-Factor in February 1990, created by Louise Simonson and Terry Shoemaker. Opal Tanaka lives in New York City and when X-Factor's ship takes up residence in the city, it blocks the sunlight that would strike her apartment, causing her plants to wilt. She encounters Iceman, who had come into the music store where she works, and expresses her views to him. Bobby, smitten with her, asks her out. Intrigued by Bobby, she accepts.
|First appearance||X-Men #107 (Oct. 1977)|
|Created by||Chris Claremont and Dave Cockrum|
Oracle is a Shi'ar who is a member of the Shi'ar Imperial Guard. The character, created by writer Chris Claremont and artist Dave Cockrum, first appeared in Uncanny X-Men #107 (Oct. 1977). Oracle, whose alter-ego is Lady Sybil, has telepathy and can exert control over others' minds. Using this power, she can project stun bolts. She also has psychoscopic awareness, or "Mind-Sight": the ability to expand her over-consciousness to read the impressions left by events in the fabric of time and matter. Like many original members of the Imperial Guard, Oracle is the analog of a character from DC Comics' Legion of Super-Heroes: in her case Saturn Girl. Oracle is originally romantically linked with fellow Imperial Guardsman Starbolt; she is later engaged to marry Flashfire (an analog of Lightning Lad, to whom Saturn Girl was also romantically linked).
Part of the division of the Imperial Guard known as the Superguardians, Oracle is amongst the first of the Imperial Guard encountered by the team of superhuman mutant adventurers known as the X-Men who sought to rescue the Princess-Majestrix Lilandra Neramani from her insane brother, then-Majestor D'Ken. After the battle, Lilandra takes over as Majestrix, and the Guard swears allegiance to her.
Later, a renegade faction of the Imperial Guard become traitors, deciding to serve Lord Samédàr, Deathbird, and the Brood in their conspiracy to overthrow Shi'ar Princess-Majestrix Lilandra. Oracle is one of the faction of the Guard that remains loyal to Lilandra and, with the X-Men's help, battles the renegades.
Deathbird succeeds in a second coup attempt. Oracle is with the Guard when they come into conflict with a rogue Space Knight named Pulsar and an alien named Tyreseus. After a large battle which also involves Rom and other Space Knights — which leads to the deaths of four new Guardsman — Pulsar and Tyreseus are defeated.
Empress Deathbird commands the entire Imperial Guard, including Oracle, to fight the combined forces of the Starjammers and Excalibur on Earth so that she can claim the power of the Phoenix Force for herself. The Guard are forced to retreat when Deathbird is put in danger. (Some time later War Skrulls impersonating Charles Xavier and the Starjammers depose Deathbird and restore Lilandra Neramani to the throne. Deathbird cedes the empire back to Lilandra as she has grown bored of the bureaucracy.)
Oracle is again part of the mission during Operation: Galactic Storm, an intergalactic war between the Shi'ar and the Kree. The Imperial Guard are integral to the Sh'iar creating a massive super weapon — the "Nega-Bomb" — using Kree artifacts, including the original Captain Marvel's Nega-Bands, which the Guard steals from the dead hero's tomb. This bomb is capable of devastating an area equivalent to that of the Kree Empire (which is supposedly located throughout the Large Magellanic Cloud). Ultimately, the Nega Bomb device is successfully detonated, devastating the Kree Empire, with billions dying instantaneously (98% of the Kree population). The Shi'ar annex the remnants of the Kree Empire, with Deathbird becoming viceroy of the Kree territories.
Oracle has many further adventures with the Imperial Guard, in storylines involving Ronan the Accuser and the Inhumans, and such storylines as "Emperor Vulcan," "Secret Invasion," X-Men: Kingbreaker, "War of Kings," "Realm of Kings," the "Infinity" crossover, the "Trial of Jean Grey," "Time Runs Out," and the return of Thanos.
Agent of Zadkiel
Emily Osborn is a supporting character in Marvel Comics. The character, created by J. M. DeMatteis and Sal Buscema, first appeared (as a photo) in The Spectacular Spider-Man #180 (September 1991). She was Norman Osborn's wife and Harry Osborn's mother.
She was apparently the only person that Norman ever showed love to, but their son's birth had weakened her with her dying sometime after. However, Emily turns up alive where she faked her death and poses as "Emma", a nanny hired by Liz Allan to be there for Normie Osborn and Stanley Osborn. She later took blood samples of her grandchildren for unknown reasons. During the "Go Down Swinging" storyline, Emily finds out that the Red Goblin is coming after their grandchildren. To keep Normie and Stanley safe, Emily abducts the two. Liz had tracking chips placed in the children as Liz, Mark Raxton and Harry find the children and discover that "Emma" is actually Emily. When the Red Goblin attacks, Emily gets away with Harry, Liz, Mark, Normie and Stanley while the Red Goblin fights with two Spider individuals as well as the Human Torch and Clash. When the Red Goblin defeats the group and catches up with the Osborn family, Emily witnesses the Red Goblin place a fragment on the Carnage symbiote on Normie. When the Red Goblin throws Emily through the window, she is saved by Spider-Man. Emily leaves the area with Stanley. Following the Red Goblin's defeat, Emily meets up with the rest of the Osborn family at Alchemax where she's forgiven for abandoning her family.
