Originally known as the Human Robot, the character was given the name "M-11" in the 2006 to 2007 Agents of Atlas miniseries as an allusion to its first appearance in Menace #11 from Marvel Comics' 1950s predecessor, Atlas Comics.[1] In an alternate reality from mainstream Earth, a scientist's newly created robot is programmed by the scientist's greedy business manager to murder the scientist. The incomplete robot, however, continues through with his directive to "kill the man in the room", and kills the business manager when the man enters. The robot then leaves the house, programmed to "kill the man in the room" but ultimately falls off a pier into the sea and short-circuits.[2]

Mad Jim Jaspers[edit]

Sir James "Mad Jim" Jaspers is a character in American comic books seen in Marvel Comics. He was created by Alan Moore, David Thorpe and Alan Davis for Marvel UK. He is a powerful supervillain who was the archenemy of Captain Britain and Excalibur as well as a few other heroes as well as the main antagonist of the Excalibur series.

In the reality of Earth-238,[4] James Jaspers, a British politician waged a political war on mutants. He had been elected into office as a member of the English Parliament because of his anti mutant and anti super heroes stance and politics, however Jaspers was a mutant himself with powerful reality-warping abilities. His political façade and motivations for the elimination of his fellow mutants and superheroes was essentially to ensure his supremacy. Jaspers seemed a gifted politician and adapt at swaying popular public opinion, with lines such as "if they were honest they wouldn't wear masks" but whether he was always mad, or descended into madness with the advent of his mutant reality warping powers, Jaspers had lost his sanity. Jaspers of Earth-238 was so determined to rid his world of mutants, he began to move beyond drumming up anti-mutant sentiment and constructed an incredibly powerful adaptive cybernetic construct known simply as the Fury to hunt and eliminate all superpowered beings.

Jaspers had also formed an advanced technological equipped military task force charged with eliminating super powered beings, this group known as the Status Crew. Typically the Status Crew would round up powered beings to be held in concentration camps with their extermination there not long after. The Fury would deal with bigger threats. It would take less than two years for super powered beings to be on the verge of extinction. The Fury had been programmed by Jaspers to allow Jaspers to live as the sole powered being.

Unmatched in power by any other being, any potential threats ruthlessly destroyed by the Fury, Jaspers adopted the persona of Mad Jim Jaspers, a bank robber and crook paying homage to the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland as well as continuing the Lewis Carroll book theme with his own bank robbing crew, the Crazy Gang. It was around this time that the Omniversal Guardian Merlyn aware of not just this reality's version of Jaspers danger to the multiverse, but the Jim Jaspers of the 616 reality who Merlyn realized possessed even greater reality warping power. Merlyn would teleport one of the few remaining super heroes of Earth-238, Captain UK Linda McQuillan, to the 616 designated reality. Importantly he would also do so whilst she was being observed by the deadly cybiote the Fury. The Earth of 238 would fall into disarray due to the mad machinations and reality warping of Jaspers. It had become known as a crooked earth. Of similar concern was that the Jaspers of 616 had begun his political ascension, a worrying sign of things to come.[5]

Upon returning to mainstream reality/616, Captain Britain found that another Sir James Jaspers was leading an anti-superhero campaign, with the aid of Henry Peter Gyrich and Sebastian Shaw, members of the Hellfire Club.

Jaspers managed to win a landslide general election victory on his anti-superhero platform and became Prime Minister of Britain. Events began to mirror those of Earth-238 and Jaspers unleashed the force of the Jaspers Warp upon London, causing much chaos and devastation. However, Jaspers found himself under attack from the reality-hopping Fury, and the two engage in a large-scale reality-warping battle in which Jaspers was ultimately killed by the Fury, who teleported him outside the universe, where he would have no reality to control and thus be rendered powerless.

First appearanceThe X-Men #107 (October 1977)
Created byChris Claremont and Dave Cockrum
TeamsImperial Guard
AbilitiesAbility to create realistic illusions

Magique, originally known as Magic, is a Shi'ar warrior and member of the Imperial Guard. The character, created by Chris Claremont and Dave Cockrum, first appeared in The Uncanny X-Men #107 (October 1977). Magique has the ability to create realistic illusions. Like many original members of the Imperial Guard, Magique is the analog of a character from DC Comics' Legion of Super-Heroes: in her case Princess Projectra.[6]

Along with Gladiator, Mentor, and Quasar (later known as Neutron), Magic was one of the founding members of the Imperial Guard, brought together centuries earlier by T'korr, Majestor of the Shi'ar Empire, for the purpose of stopping Rook'shir, who has been driven insane by the malevolent force known as the Dark Phoenix, and was laying waste to the galaxy.[7]

Magic and the Guard first clash with the X-Men and Starjammers, on behalf of D'Ken and Davan Shakari, over the fate of the Shi'ar Princess Lilandra Neramani.[8] After the battle, Lilandra takes over as Majestrix, and the Guard swears allegiance to her.[9]

After Lilandra's sister Deathbird stages a coup and becomes the new Shi'ar Empress, the Guard comes into conflict with a rogue Space Knight named Pulsar (not the Imperial Guard member Impulse, who later changes his name to Pulsar) and an alien named Tyreseus. After a large conflict which also involves Rom and other Space Knights — which leads to the deaths four Guardsman — Pulsar and Tyreseus are defeated.[10]

Some time later, Empress Deathbird sends the Imperial Guard to Earth to battle the combined forces of the Starjammers and the superhero team Excalibur, so that she can claim the power of the Phoenix Force for herself. The Guard are forced to retreat when Deathbird realizes the Starjammers are led by Lilandra.[11] (Some time later War Skrulls impersonating Charles Xavier and the Starjammers depose Deathbird and restore Lilandra to the throne. Deathbird cedes the empire back to Lilandra as she has grown bored of the bureaucracy.)[12]

Now named Magique, the character takes part in "Operation: Galactic Storm," which details an intergalactic war between the Shi'ar and the Kree. Magique and the Imperial Guard steal the original Captain Marvel's Nega-Bands from the dead hero's tomb.[13] Using Kree artifacts, including the Bands, the Sh'iar create a massive super weapon, the "Nega-Bomb." Ultimately, the Nega-Bomb device is successfully detonated, devastating the Kree Empire, with billions dying instantaneously (98% of the Kree population).[14] The Shi'ar annex the remnants of the Kree Empire, with Deathbird becoming viceroy of the Kree territories.[15]

At the beginning of the "War of Kings" event, Magique is part of the Imperial Guard faction that attacks Ronan the Accuser on his wedding day.[16] The Guard also slaughters many new Nova Corps recruits.[17] Magique leads a squad of Imperial Guards to Knowhere, base of the Guardians, tracking Adam Warlock. However, Adam has begun turning into his dark counterpart, the Magus, and tricks Magique's troops into killing her.[18]

Some years later, she is replaced by a member of the Subguardians in Guardians of the Galaxy (vol. 5) #1.[19]

Amara Aquilla[edit]




Magnus the Sorcerer[edit]

Magnus the Sorcerer was the mentor of the first Spider-Woman, Jessica Drew. He first appeared in Spider-Woman #2 (May 1978), and was created by Marv Wolfman and Carmine Infantino.

In the 20th century, the centuries-old sorcerer could possess the bodies of the living. Magnus' spirit took possession of Jonathan Drew and aided the High Evolutionary in organizing the Knights of Wundagore.[20]

Notable aliasesMad Merlin, The Warlock, the Maha Yogi

Maha Yogi is a fictional character in the Marvel Universe. He first appeared in Journey into Mystery #96 (September 1963), and was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.

Yogi was apparently born 10,000 years ago in what is now Central Europe. He apparently was a savage that came to possess some portion of the same Bloodgem that Ulysses Bloodstone would later possess, which gave him immortality and eternal youth. He later came to Britain during the time of Camelot, and impersonated the real Merlin while he was away. The Eternal Sersi exposed the impostor, and the real Merlin placed him in suspended animation.[21]

The false Merlin was revived in modern times, still posing as Merlin, and battled and was defeated by Thor, after which he went back into the coffin.[22] He later became a professional criminal and took the name Warlock, organizing a band of armored mercenaries. He abducted Marvel Girl, battled the original X-Men, and was rendered comatose by Professor X.[23]

Later, as the mentalist Maha Yogi, he attempted to create an army of mind-slaves. He fought and was defeated by the Beast and Iceman.[24] The Maha Yogi then became the chairman of Merlin Industries. With Mongu, the Maha Yogi plotted world conquest, but was defeated by the Hulk and Doctor Druid. During his encounter with the Hulk, his fragment of the Bloodgem was destroyed and he rapidly aged into helplessness.[25] Some time later, the Maha Yogi was revealed to have been created by the Caretakers of Arcturus and to have turned against them.[26] He later appeared alive with his youth apparently restored by unknown means.[27]

As a result of mutation induced by the Caretakers of Arcturus, the Maha Yogi had the psionic abilities to control the minds of others, create illusions, project psionic force bolts, levitate objects as large as a building, teleport himself, create force fields and alter his own appearance. His psionic powers have a limited range.

Thanks to his possession of a fragment of the Bloodstone, the Maha Yogi is virtually immortal, and has a physically malleable body.

He has attempted to use true magic, performing a ritual to summon the demon known as Grendel's Mother.[28]

When the fight was over, Mainframe, Stinger, J2, and Kevin (as the new Thunderstrike) formed A-Next, a new team of Avengers.[31]

Right away, Mainframe attempted to establish himself as team leader. He frequently encountered resistance from Stinger, who did not know that Mainframe was a robot. But when Mainframe was terminally damaged, exposing his secret, Stinger was one of the first to volunteer to shrink inside to repair him. They later learned that whenever Mainframe was severely injured, he would upload his personality and memories into a replacement body assembled on an orbiting satellite.[32]

He joins his life force with Andromeda, the Valkyrie, and Interloper to drive the Dragon of the Moon from Earth, and his body turns to dust.[72] With the others, they later take on host bodies of living persons, and assist Doctor Strange in battling and crushing the Dragon of the Moon.[73] Manslaughter has minor psionic talents, telepathic powers enabling him to perceive the activity of the autonomic nervous systems of other people. He can use this to influence the peripheral vision and subliminal hearing of others, making him invisible and virtually inaudible from a person's peripheral senses.

SpeciesUnidentified extraterrestrial race
TeamsImperial Guard

  • Experiences memory in a manner different from that of most other species

Manta is a member of the Shi'ar Imperial Guard. Created by Chris Claremont and John Byrne, she first appeared in The Uncanny X-Men #137 (September 1980). Manta possesses the power of flight. Manta's eyes only perceive heat (as in infrared radiation), allowing her to see in the dark. She can generate blinding flashes of white or blue light. Her species experiences memory in a manner different from that of most other species.

She has fought the X-Men on multiple occasions. She first fought the X-Men in the Shi'ar Empire's attempt to police the Phoenix Force.[74]

She was 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 involved Rom and other Space Knights — which led to the deaths of four new Guardsman — Pulsar and Tyreseus were defeated.[10]

Later, when Deathbird became Empress, Astra commanded the entire Imperial Guard, including Manta, to fight the combined forces of the Starjammers and Excalibur on Earth so that she could claim the power of the Phoenix Force for herself. The Guard were forced to retreat when Deathbird was put in danger.[11] Some time later War Skrulls impersonating Charles Xavier and the Starjammers depose Deathbird and restored Lilandra Neramani to the throne. Deathbird ceded the empire back to Lilandra as she had grown bored of the bureaucracy.[12]

Manta was again part of the Imperial Guard missions "Operation: Galactic Storm"[14][75] and "Starblast."[76][77]

Later during New X-Men, she fought the X-Men under the manipulation of Cassandra Nova. In the latter, Manta sought out Jean Grey, confident she could defeat Phoenix while armed with psychic armor, but Grey easily bested her in hand-to-hand combat.[78]

He would lure teenaged runaways and the homeless to his secret laboratory on Ellis Island. He would have his men offer food and shelter, only to turn into his test subjects. This is how Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson came into contact with Dr. Marshall; the two runaways were injected with D-Lite which had up until now proven fatal to others, surviving the ordeal and were unintentionally empowered.[91] Another of his subjects was an unnamed human-smuggler was injected D-Lite by Dr. Marshall who waited to see what happens. After two of the runaways break open the window and escape, the human-smuggler who Dr. Marshall experimented on made a run for it too; D-Lite had elicit side-effects which later resulted in the crime lord Mister Negative.[92] Cloak and Dagger track down the people behind the experimention while Spider-Man interfered, trying to stop the former two from killing people. Cloak and Dagger gathered all the people responsible for their condition, including Dr. Marshall. Spider-Man tried to stop Cloak and Dagger from killing in cold blood, but failed as Cloak's darkness makes them, including Dr. Marshall, run out of a window and plummet to their deaths.[91]

Joy Meachum in other media[edit]

In the Iron Fist TV show set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Jessica Stroup played Joy as an adult[114] and Aimee Laurence portrayed her as a child.[115][116] Joy is still Harold's daughter, but Ward is her brother. Stroup said that Joy "absolutely loves" Rand, and his return to New York is "like this rebirth of what she once was, and she gets to ask these questions about herself because he's posing them to her." However, Stroup said that Joy would initially be unsure whether Rand is who he says he is.[117]

Like Ward, Joy is initially doubtful of Danny Rand turning up alive,[118] but eventually realizes the truth, even discreetly helping Danny by slipping his lawyer Jeri Hogarth a piece of evidence for using at an arbitration meeting.[119] She is also shown to show concern towards Ward when he suddenly gets hooked on Madame Gao's heroin.[120] Later on in the episode "The Mistress of All Agonies," Joy accidentally stumbles upon Harold in his penthouse.[121] She assists her father into freezing the Rand Enterprises' bank accounts that are being used by the Hand. Joy is present with Harold when Ward shows up trying to get Joy away from Harold, after Bakuto gets him out of the hospital. Before Ward can leave with Joy, Bakuto and his men show up, having decided not to honor the deal he's struck with Ward so that he can stop Harold from freezing anymore Rand Enterprises accounts. Bakuto shoots Joy non-fatally to bring Danny out of hiding, and she is taken to the hospital.[122] While she is recuperating, Ward shows her evidence that Harold has framed Danny for the Hand's drug smuggling. Upon leaving the hospital, Joy confronts Harold about this as he uses a cover-up. Joy later leaves Rand Enterprises as Danny, Colleen, and Ward engage and defeat Harold and his men. Following Harold's death and cremation as well as Danny becoming a business partner to Ward, Joy is visited by Davos at a restaurant in France who states that Danny must die, as their conversation is overheard by Madame Gao.[123]

Menace (Lily Hollister) is a fictional character, a villainess appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character is most commonly depicted as an enemy of Spider-Man. Her first appearance as Lily Hollister is in The Amazing Spider-Man #545, and her first appearance as Menace is in The Amazing Spider-Man #550, which is the start of the second story arc in the "Brand New Day" overarching storyline that followed the events of "One More Day".[132]

Daughter of District Attorney William "Bill" Hollister, Socialite Lily Hollister was dating Harry Osborn. Lily found a hidden door in Harry Osborn's closet and found an old journal of his.[133] She uncovered the location of one of Norman Osborn's secret rooms in the journal. When she had first gone in, she found all of the Goblin's equipment along with some experiments. After accidentally knocking over some experimental Goblin chemicals, she absorbed them into her skin, and was now able to transform into her "Menace" form at will. Stealing a weapons cache of the original Green Goblin, Norman Osborn, Menace was later hunted down by Jackpot. During her search, she met Spider-Man and reluctantly accepted his help. Menace attacked a council meeting and kidnapped councilwoman Lisa Parfrey, with Spider-Man and Jackpot working together to try and stop her. Menace's glider slammed into the rescued councilwoman, killing her, and Menace escaped the crime scene, but not before accusing Spider-Man of being responsible for the woman's death.[134]

Menace later tried to threaten Bill Hollister, her father and one of the candidates for the election, into dropping out of the race for mayor while she continued supporting him in her public identity. She was sabotaging his campaign for his own good against Randall Crowne, his opponent, and began destroying her fathers advertisements. She also broke into their home and tried to threaten him into backing out of the running. Menace then proceeded to threaten the supposedly 'redeemed' Norman Osborn who had come to town when her actions inadvertently revealed that Crowne had been operating an illegal sweatshop in the city and Crowne asked him for help. Menace recreated Osborn's original death by ramming him with her glider, however, Osborn survived the attack and Menace spared him, after accusing Osborn of being a fool for devoting all his time and assets to Spider-Man's destruction. During the Skrull Invasion, Lily and Harry Osborn were attacked on the street, after getting away from Harry and changing into Menace she killed one of the invading Skrulls, and then set her sights on Jackpot, believing her to be "Spider-Man's girlfriend". Their fight took her into the path of one of the Skrull's, with Menace's glider exploding on contact. Menace survived, though badly injured, and limped away from the scene.[135]

When Menace attacked a Hollister Rally, she managed to badly beat Spider-Man (who had earlier been shot through the arm) and claimed a "citizen's arrest" to the arriving police. Menace then flew into the Hollister party headquarters, and changed back into Lily Hollister, just before Harry walked in on her. She revealed to Harry that she was Menace. She then told Harry that she accepted his earlier marriage proposal.[136] On Election Day, Menace attacked two police officers for arresting her former friend Carlie Cooper for a crime she didn't commit, then attacked Spider-Man when he appeared. Menace was about to finish him until Harry, as the Green Goblin, appeared and shot Menace with a serum, with Spider-Man giving her the full injection. This caused Menace to change back into Lily and was seen in a live broadcast, with her father watching in shock and in tears of this revelation. A few days after the event, with Bill Hollister as the new Mayor of New York, Lily was now in prison and was visited by Norman Osborn, who discovered the engagement ring given to her by Harry and welcomed her to the family.[136]

Though the takeover bid failed, his involvement led Spider-Man to consider him as a potential candidate to the Hobgoblin's identity.[142] At some point, Menken had joined the Cabal of Scrier and freed Norman from the psychiatric hospital. Norman later would greatly injure Menken; he survived from his injuries, but he was never seen again.[143]

After the symbiote is tested on Cletus Kasady, he transforms into Carnage and escapes, infecting many inmates with the symbiote. When Spider-Man comes to investigate the chaos, he rescues "Menken" from the inmates, who informs him of the symbiote's weaknesses before being taken to safety.

Mondo is the name of two characters which have appeared in the series Generation X. The first Mondo was a superhero later revealed to be a clone of the supervillain Mondo, who appeared years later. The first Mondo's first appearance was in Generation X #3.

Fictional character biography[edit]

Not much is known of the Samoan mutant called Mondo. He was once friends with Cordelia Frost, Emma Frost's younger sister.[174] In an attempt to make a bid for the position of White Queen of the Hellfire Club, Cordelia had Mondo contained and handed him over to the Inner Circle of the Hellfire Club. Cordelia's scheme backfired; the Hellfire Club kept Mondo but denied Cordelia membership. Cordelia went to Emma, headmistress of the Massachusetts Academy, for help and, soon after, Mondo was rescued by Generation X and subsequently accepted an invitation to join the school.[175]

Generation X later learned that the Mondo they had rescued wasn't the real Mondo but a clone, a plant-based simulacrum created by Black Tom Cassidy who had infiltrated the Hellfire Club and rescued Mondo. After taking Mondo under his wing, Black Tom created a clone of the young mutant to infiltrate the Massachusetts Academy so that Black Tom could exact vengeance on his cousin, Banshee, who was the headmaster of the academy.[176]

As Banshee and Emma Frost battled Black Tom, the Mondo clone began hunting down the members of Generation X. As the Mondo clone was about to attack Jubilee, he was shot dead by the anti-mutant militant Bastion, chief operative of Operation: Zero Tolerance.[176]

Later, the real Mondo appeared alongside Black Tom and Juggernaut. Completely loyal to Black Tom, the real Mondo battled the members of Generation X. Generation X attempted to talk to Mondo into not fighting, but Mondo laughed at them, reminding them that he has never met them before. Generation X and their teachers were able to defeat their opponents, but the trio still managed to escape.[177]

Mondo was confirmed to be alive and powered as he appeared with the rest of Generation X during Cyclops' Million Mutant March in Washington D.C.[178] Mondo has recently appeared in X-Men Blue issue #8 alongside several other mutants in an effort to hunt down the young X-Men Blue team. This team's leader is Emma Frost, as she is part of the mutant sovereign state New Tian during Marvel's Secret Empire story arc.

Powers and abilities[edit]

Mondo is capable of taking on the properties of any organic or inorganic material with which he comes into contact. When using his power, Mondo is able to grow in mass with an assumed proportionate growth in strength to superhuman levels. Mondo can absorb matter into his body, gaining the mass, appearance, and other properties of the matter in question. This change will remain until Mondo's body "digests" the organic matter, which is then disintegrated.

Mondo is also able to use his power to travel through organic matter, such as dirt, and can appear instantaneously in the immediate vicinity of where he entered the earth.

Other versions[edit]

In the Age of Apocalypse, Mondo was one of the members of Generation Next taught by Colossus and his wife Shadowcat. Unlike his Earth 616 counterpart, Mondo was truly heroic and had no reservations whatsoever about helping the innocent. They were given the mission by Magneto to infiltrate the Core -- a prison facility watched over by the Sugar Man—and rescue Colossus' sister Illyana, who was crucial to Bishop's plan to save all of reality. Mondo was given the task of sneaking in through the ground and finding Illyana. He let the little girl stay in his stomach while he was in this dirt form, but he had to be wary not to keep her in too long or else she would be digested. Despite his best efforts, Sugar Man found the pair and was able to kill Mondo with his razor-sharp tongue, even though Mondo was still in his dirt form. He constantly referred to himself in the third person.[volume & issue needed]

Mondo in other media[edit]

In the Generation X TV movie, Mondo was played by Bumper Robinson.

They became friends after Doreen saved Monkey Joe from being chased by a dog, and the little squirrel subsequently encouraged Doreen to use her powers to help people. When she grew up, Doreen became Squirrel Girl.[179]

Monkey Joe helped her to defeat Doctor Doom during her first outing as a superhero when she was fourteen years old.[180] The duo later joined the Great Lakes Avengers, with Squirrel Girl making certain that Monkey Joe was an official member. Monkey Joe met his demise at the hands of Leather Boy, an ex-GLA member kicked out for not actually having any powers, who attacked the team disguised as Doctor Doom.[181]

After his death, Squirrel Girl found a new squirrel companion named Tippy Toe and gave her a pink bow.[182] Tippy Toe mimics Monkey Joe's role as Squirrel Girl's sidekick. To honor him, Doreen would sometimes wear a pendant with the initials MJ on it around her neck. Monkey Joe was seen playing cards with the rest of the fallen GLA members when Doorman briefly visited the after-life. He seemed very bitter about his demise and less forgiving than the other deceased members.

Amazing Adventures[edit]

Tales to Astonish[edit]




Moondark operated as a stage magician in San Francisco, and when Spider-Man came to town he feared that Spider-Man would interfere with his plans. While Jack Russell observed his performance at a small bijou, Moondark mesmerized the whole audience including Jack (also known as the Werewolf). Moondark sent the Werewolf to ambush Spider-Man at the San Francisco Bay, where he was vacationing. As the two heroes fought, Spider-Man discovered and tackled Moondark, who was killed as he fell into the water.[186]

The Dark Beings whom Moondark worshipped claimed his soul but allowed him to return to Earth to claim other souls and buy back his own. He acted as a stage performer at a carnival in New York and created a Soul-Orb to claim the souls of the other carnival performers one by one. The Ghost Rider, Johnny Blaze, while working at the carnival also lost his soul to Moondark, which Moondark kept in a ring he wore. Spider-Man, as Peter Parker, went to the carnival and recognized the Ghost Rider who was now a part of Moondark's show. Parker returned as Spider-Man, but was captured by the Ghost Rider and the others under Moondark's control. When Moondark tried to steal Spider-Man's soul, he was able to destroy Moondark's ring and free the Ghost Rider, who destroyed the Soul-Orb with a burst of hellfire. Moondark's demonic master arrived to take the only soul available—Moondark's.[187]

Moondark was able to return to the living world, seeking to reclaim Blaze's valuable soul to bargain for his own. Lairing outside Las Vegas, he sent mutated vultures to attack Blaze and attract his attention. He tricked Ghost Rider into resuming human form, subdued him and bound him with magical bonds that prevented him from transforming. Hamilton Slade, then known as the Phantom Rider, was nearby and drawn to the magical conflict. When Moondark attacked Slade, his concentration weakened which allowed Blaze to break free and transform into Ghost Rider again. Ghost Rider destroyed the new Soul-Orb and Moondark fled to his other-dimensional realm.[188]

Moondark joined forces with the Water Wizard to get revenge on Blaze. Moondark enhanced the Water Wizard's power which allowed him to overpower Ghost Rider, and Moondark appeared and mocked the seemingly helpless Ghost Rider. Ghost Rider set Moondark's body on fire, and he fled back to his dimension.[189]

Morbius, the Living Vampire[edit]


David Moreau[edit]

The character's name is an homage to the title character of H.G. Wells' science-fiction novel The Island of Doctor Moreau.[208] While working for the island nation of Genosha, he developed a mind control device which made mutant slavery possible. Moreau created the mutate-process: all inhabitants of Genosha were tested at their 13th birthday for any presence of the X-factor gene. If they tested positive, they were turned into mutates: their memories were erased and their personality changed to become completely obedient, they were sealed in special suits and their powers were genetically changed to serve the needs of their country. At this time, Moreau became known as the Genegineer (a portmanteau of "Genetic Engineer").[209][210][211]

Christian Davenport remarked that the atrocities committed by David Moreau are repeatedly related to the Holocaust and American slavery in the Genosha series of comics.[211]

Eli Morrow was a Satan-worshiping serial killer who worked for the Russian mafia. He was considered the black sheep of his family and shoved Robbie Reyes' mother down a flight of stairs while she was pregnant, resulting in Robbie's younger brother Gabe being born paraplegic.[212] He was killed by the mob, but his spirit possessed a 1969 Dodge Charger, which Robbie later inherited. After Robbie is gunned down by men hired by Calvin Zabo, Morrow attaches himself to Robbie's soul, becoming the new Ghost Rider.[213]

Eli slowly begins to corrupt Robbie in an attempt to turn him into a killer,[214] even going so far as to possess Gabe to fulfill his revenge against the mob boss that killed him. Robbie eventually accepts his uncle's influence and his dual identity as Ghost Rider under the condition that they only go after the worst people in the world.[215]

Eli Morrow in other media[edit]

Eli Morrow appears in season four of the live-action Marvel Cinematic Universe television series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., portrayed by José Zúñiga. This version is an engineer who worked for Momentum Labs as part of a project to develop a machine that can generate materials out of nothing. The head scientists, Joseph and Lucy Bauer, used an ancient book called the Darkhold to make their dream a reality. However, Morrow discovered this and tried to claim the Darkhold for himself, but failed to when the experiment went awry, turning Lucy and her team into ghosts while Eli was sent to jail for beating Joseph into a coma after the latter refused to relinquish the book.[216] Morrow makes his first appearance in the episode "Let Me Stand Next to Your Fire" when his nephew Robbie Reyes and S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Phil Coulson visit him in jail to learn what happened the day of the experiment.[217] In "Lockup", Lucy kidnaps Morrow as she needs a living being to use the Darkhold to renew the experiment.[218] In "The Good Samaritan", when S.H.I.E.L.D. comes to rescue him, Eli reveals his true intentions regarding the Darkhold and activates Momentum Labs' machine, gaining the ability to create matter by pulling energy from other dimensions.[216] In "The Laws of Inferno Dynamics", Eli uses his powers to create a demon core to enhance himself, but S.H.I.E.L.D. and Robbie stop him, with the latter dragging Eli into another dimension before the demon core can destroy half of Los Angeles.[219]


Moses Magnum[edit]

Further reading

Moses Magnum is a fictional supervillain first appeared in Giant-Size Spider-Man #4 (April 1975), and was created by Gerry Conway and Ross Andru.[220] He is an arms dealer and terrorist.

Magnum was born in Ethiopia, but sided with Benito Mussolini's occupying army against his own people. Magnum later became a naturalized American citizen. He became president of the Deterrence Research Corporation (DRC), the world's foremost independent weapons manufacturing firm. As an arms expert, Magnum battled Spider-Man and the Punisher. Magnum surprisingly survived after the Punisher exposed him to chemical weapons.[221] Then, he seemingly fell to his death after a battle with Luke Cage.[222] However, Magnum was rescued by Apocalypse and granted superhuman powers which Magnum dubbed his "Magnum Force".[223] His powers included superhuman strength and geologically based powers to cause earthquakes and sense disruptions in the Earth.

Magnum next threatened to create earthquakes to sink Japan unless he was named the nation's ruler. His plan was foiled by an assault by the X-Men and Sunfire on Magnum's Kuril Islands headquarters. Banshee disrupted Magnum's earthquake beam, but suffered a long-term loss of his own sonic powers in the process.[224]

Re-establishing his company as Magnum Munitions, Magnum purchased the classified Deathlok cyborg technology from Cybertek.[225] After the criminal High-Tech stole the technology, Magnum sent one of his agents in a massive Terrordome weapons platform to retrieve it, but was thwarted by Deathlok. Magnum subsequently bid against rival weapons manufacturers A.I.M. for a defense contract, destroying their world headquarters after they refused to withdraw their bid. Magnum used the subsequent profits to outfit a new army, conquering the African nation Canaan and seeking to restructure it into a homeland for African-Americans. Magnum then sought to ensure Canaan's economic independence by invading neighboring Wakanda, but Wakanda's king, the Black Panther, foiled the invasion with Deathlok's aid.[226]

Later, Magnum's efforts to regain control of his power and destroy a floating resort using a stolen experimental seismic cannon were foiled by the combined efforts of the Avengers and future Avenger Triathlon. His own powers opened a fissure beneath him, seemingly sending him falling to his doom.[227] Magnum somehow survived the fall, though how has not been revealed. At that time. He was present at the Pan-African Congress on the Treatment of Superhumans.[228]

He next encountered Spider-Man.[229] During the Dark Reign storyline, Moses escaped from prison through a plot by Norman Osborn to give Daken good publicity and was almost killed by a massive explosion intended by Osborn to clean up the resulting mess.[230]

Magnum next appeared in Iron Man/Thor attempting to sell a special satellite he invented.[231]

Moses Magnum's body generates seismic force which amplifies his natural strength, gives him an unknown degree of durability and attunes him to seismic vibrations. He can unleash this energy to cause vibratory shockwaves, minor tremors or devastating earthquakes. These waves will emanate from his body in all directions unless he purposefully tries to channel them in a single direction, usually along the length of his arms and through the tips of his fingers.

Moses Magnum in other media[edit]

Moses Magnum appears in the Iron Man: Armored Adventures episode "Panther's Prey". This version is responsible for T'Chaka's death as part of a coup with a group of mercenaries and does not demonstrate any superpowers. After stealing a piece of Vibranium from Wakanda and traveling to the U.S., he plans to give it to A.I.M. so they can use it in their MODOC project. However, he is stopped by Black Panther and Iron Man and taken back to Wakanda to face justice.

After Shang-Chi's defection from his criminal organization, Zheng Zu groomed Moving Shadow to replace him. Under Zheng Zu's tutelage, Moving Shadow embraced his father's teachings and served him loyally without question. To ensure the success of his Hellfire weapon, Zheng Zu dispatched Moving Shadow to kill Shang-Chi and his allies Black Jack Tarr, Clive Reston and Leiko Wu. Eager to prove himself superior to his half-brother, Moving Shadow repeatedly clashed with Shang-Chi, who was previously unaware of his existence. Shang-Chi eventually emerged victorious after a vicious fight with Moving Shadow but refused to kill him. With his plains thwarted once again by Shang-Chi, an enraged Zheng Zu executed Moving Shadow for his failure.[232]
