Seymour O'Reilly[edit]

Seymour O'Reilly is a Marvel Comics character who first appeared in Amazing Fantasy #15.

He was a wisecracking, bully-wannabe who joined athlete Flash Thompson to pick on unpopular kids such as Peter Parker. When Spider-Man appeared throughout the years, Seymour was still a sort of harasser to Peter as time goes by; for instance, he began playing some pranks on Peter such as putting a "kick-me" sign on his back and trying to give him a "wedgie". He makes a final appearance in the Marvel Knights Spider-Man series in issue #7 where he once again troubles Peter and he meets his demise when he is killed by Angelo Fortunato, the son of crime boss Don Fortunato who became the new Venom. Peter and his wife Mary Jane Watson were questioned by the police regarding O'Reilly's death who arrive at Peter's high school reunion due to O'Reilly's demise.

Other media[edit]

Seymour O'Reilly appears as a minor character in The Spectacular Spider-Man, voiced by Steven Blum.

Aleta Ogord[edit]

Aleta Ogord is a 30th-century superhero in the Marvel Universe. The character, created by Steve Gerber, Sal Buscema, and Vince Colletta, first appeared in Defenders #29 in November, 1975.

Within the context of the stories, Aleta is a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Aleta was born in the 31st century on the planet Arcturus IV. Due to biochemical advancements by the warlike Reavers and radioactive fallout on the planet, she was born with the power to manipulate light.

Aleta was raised to be aggressive and ruthless by her father. Stakar, her adopted brother, was the more intellectual of the pair. Although she initially resented him, the two eventually fell in love and married. The two traveled to the Forbidden City on Arcturus and discovered a statue of the powerful Hawk God. Aleta accidentally triggered a mechanism in the statue. Her body was turned into energy and merged with Stakar, granting him incredible power.

With this bonding only one of them could exist at any time while the other was locked in Limbo until they swapped places. Stakar remained corporeal for most of the time and took the name Starhawk. Aleta's father Ogord decided to use Starhawk as a weapon, but Aleta and Stakar did not want to be used in such a way. The two left for space and Ogord vowed revenge.

Eventually the two grew lonely in space. Secretly returning to Arcturus they petitioned the Hawk God to temporarily separate them so that they might have children to which the Hawk God agreed. Stakar and Aleta had triplets: Tara, Sita and John. The two were then re-merged, with Aleta remaining to take care of the children.

However things did not remain well. Stakar, wanting to return to space, forcibly took control as Starhawk. The children were secreted away in a home where they could have instant communication with Starhawk. Aleta began to resent Starhawk for taking them away from her children and keeping her locked in Limbo. During his travels through space, Starhawk met and joined the interstellar freedom fighters known as the Guardians of the Galaxy. During the brief periods Aleta was in control she also acted as a member. Aleta's father Ogord later found and abducted his grandchildren, using them in a plot to kill Starhawk. Although the plot failed thanks to the Guardians, the children aged rapidly and died. Aleta never forgave her husband for their loss.

On a later mission Aleta and Starhawk separated, something that had never happened during any of Starhawks past lives. Finally free from her now-hated husband, Aleta divorced him and began a romantic relationship with Vance Astro. Vance reciprocated her feelings and he eventually proposed to Aleta and she agreed to marry him.

Over time the separation from Aleta began to affect Stakar. During her battle with Malevolence he forcibly reabsorbed his ex-wife and fled the team. Although it was Stakar's male form, Aleta's mind was active as well. Another side effect of the forced merger was that Starhawk's physical form was now completely black with stars shinning from his body. Aleta could also physically harm her husband by causing him intense pain. The duo could also swap places and while swapped Stakar could physically harm his wife as well.

Unable to live like this the two battled for the right to be Starhawk and Aleta was the victor. She returned Stakar to his infant form to begin his life anew (as he had done many times before) and took his place as Starkhawk. She also forgave him for all his past transgressions.

Aleta rejoined the Guardians, who were attacking the Badoon, and battled a Badoon powered Captain Universe. She drove off the uni-force and saved her teammates and reunited with her love. However all was not well. As the avatar for the Hawk God Aleta found herself growing colder and losing her emotions. When the Guardians went to check on Centauri-IV they found the planet altered. While the Guardians were in the past a change to the timeline was made and the Centauri and Badoon were now merged. Yondu further explained that Starhawk had informed them that the Guardians were coming. Aleta denied this but then the group realized that Yondu did not know Aleta was now the Hawkgod's avatar and watched as Stakar returned and confronted his wife.

While the former husband and wife quarreled the Hawk God watched as his avatars bickered like school children. Finally having enough, he brought the two to him and fused the two at the hands, forcing them to work together. Eventually the Hawk God separated them and Aleta opted to withdraw her petition to be Starhawk as she did not like how emotionless she became while being the Hawk God's avatar. She remained with the Guardians of the Galaxy from then on.

Aleta and Stakar eventually became able to separate again with no ill effects, and she resumed her relationship with Vance. However, without Stakar, she seems to be becoming more cold and ruthless like the other Reavers.

For the Spider-Man villain formerly known as Override, see Gregory Herd.

Overrider (Richard Rennselaer) is a fictional mutant in the Marvel Comics Universe. His first appearance was in Captain America Annual #8.

Richard Rennselaer is a former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent whose son developed nuclear psychosis, a total withdrawal from reality due to a fear that the world will end at any moment due to nuclear destruction.[volume & issue needed]

Desperate to help his son, Rennselaer (secretly a mutant with the power to control machinery) took on the codename of "Overrider" and stole the experimental TESS-One robot - part of a 1939 project dubbed Total Elimination Of Super-Soldiers which was intended to be a failsafe against the Super Soldier program. Overrider had the TESS-One robot coated with adamantium at the Adametco Metallurgy company, and it was there he first encountered Captain America and Wolverine, each who had been following different leads. Overrider escaped with TESS-One, and later mounted an assault on a nuclear command facility in the hope of launching America's entire stockpile of nuclear missiles and burying them in the ocean floor, not caring that Moscow may interpret the launch as an attack on the Soviet Union. Captain America and Wolverine teamed up to defeat TESS-One, and then encountered Overrider as he was about to launch the missiles. Captain America knocked Overrider off his flying sled with his shield, and Wolverine almost impaled him on his claws as he fell, choosing instead at the last second to let Overrider fall to the floor. Overrider was quickly given medical attention and then taken into custody.[volume & issue needed] Overrider was depowered thanks to the effects of M-Day.[volume & issue needed]
