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.

Seymour was a wisecracking, bully-wannabe who joined athlete Flash Thompson to pick on unpopular kids such as Peter Parker. When Spider-Man appeared he too idolized him, unaware of the fact that it was actually Peter. He seemed like a suck up to Flash and was typically his yes man during many schemes. Years later, he attended Midtown High School's Pre-Reunion Bash where he appears to not have matured since his high school days. He attempts to place a "kick me" sign on someone's back only to get punched in the face.
Seymour makes a final appearance in the Marvel Knights Spider-Man series in issue #7 where he once again troubles Peter and is openly envious of his marriage to Mary Jane Watson. He meets his demise when he is killed by Angelo Fortunato, the son of crime boss Don Fortunato who became the new Venom, but not before seeing that Peter is Spider-Man. Peter and Mary Jane were questioned by the police regarding Seymour's death.

When Doctor Octopus released an airborne "cure" that caused drug users to have convulsions, Spider-Man created an antidote and presented it to Oakley.

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.

Stan Ori in other media
He is portrayed by Rick Holmes in the 2017 TV series The Punisher.

Orikal is an extra-dimensional being who has mystical powers so vast that they can nullify the power of Odin. Orikal has incredibly advanced scientific knowledge, and his "Infinite Eye" can see everything that is happening in the world he is in, as well as what will happen in its alternate futures.
Orikal was trapped within a sea of flame by Geirrodur, King of the Trolls. Geirrodur coerced Orikal into providing information on how to build advanced weaponry, which the trolls used to invade Asgard. The trolls used one of their devices to drain the power from Odin's scepter, and the Asgardians were on the verge of defeat. Thor and Sif managed to find Orikal but Ulik tried to kill Orikal. Thor defeated Ulik and freed Orikal, who transformed into energy and shot out into space.
Orikal later became enslaved by Geirrodur once again. He provided information to Thor, Ulik, Odin, and assisted Thor's efforts to defeat Mangog and prevent Thanos from using the Chalice of Ruins and the tears of the Designate to gain vast power and destroy all life in the cosmos.[volume & issue needed]

Amberson Osborn is a Marvel Comics character introduced in The Spectacular Spider-Man Annual #14 (June 1994). He was Norman Osborn's father. Amberson was a brilliant inventor, but lost the family fortune when his invention was stolen yet often "blamed others for his failures". Unfortunately for Norman and his mother (Amberson's wife), he began abusing alcohol after realizing that he was cheated. Amberson lashed out at and verbally abused Norman, and even hit his wife when she came to their young son's defense. Amberson also locked Norman in an abandoned family mansion to force his son to "face the darkness" and made him stay there throughout the night during an intense rain storm which traumatized Norman from the apparent cackling of a green goblin-like creature.
Amberson had presumably passed away by the time of Norman's rise to power as the Green Goblin.
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. Emily was apparently the only person that Norman ever showed love to, but their son's birth had weakened her, with her dying sometime after.
Emily turns up alive where she faked her death and poses as a woman named "Emma" who is hired by Liz Allan to be the nanny to 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 Red Goblin (her husband possessed by the Carnage symbiote) is coming after her grandchildren. To keep them safe, Emily abducts them. Liz had tracking chips placed in her grandchildren as she, Mark Raxton, and Harry find the grandchildren as they discover that "Emma" is actually Emily Osborn. When Red Goblin attacks, Emily gets away with Harry, Liz, Mark, Normie, and Stanley while Red Goblin fights with Silk, Miles Morales, Human Torch, and Clash. When Red Goblin defeats them and catches up with his family, Emily witnesses Red Goblin place a fragment on the Carnage symbiote on Normie. When Red Goblin throws Emily through the window, she is saved by Spider-Man. Emily leaves the area with Stanley. Following Red Goblin's defeat, Emily meets up with the rest of the Osborn family at Alchemax where he forgives her for abandoning his family.
Alternate versions of Emily Osborn
Emily Osborn in other media
- In the 2002 Spider-Man movie, a picture of Emily Osborn can be seen. It is revealed that she left Norman and Harry, taking some of Norman's money; Norman believes Mary Jane Watson (Harry's girlfriend) is just another gold-digger.
- Emily Osborn has non-voiced appearances in The Spectacular Spider-Man cartoon series. She appears in the episodes "Competition", "Blueprints" and "Final Curtain". She hasn't said a single word in the entire series, and she doesn't appear interested in anything that's going on around her. She was briefly considered a suspect as the true identity of the Green Goblin. Had the series been picked up for a third season, she would have been voiced by Marina Sirtis.
In a disco at Moscow, Oswald lamented his life, before blowing the place up. After stumbling out, Hoffman congratulated him on a job well done.[volume & issue needed] Later, in England, Oswald appeared with Hoffman, putting a stop to the beating of a mutant by an angry crowd. After Hoffman cooled down the crowd and walked off with Fagin and Mike Asher, Oswald blew up the street and the gathered crowd.[volume & issue needed]
Oswald's mutant ability allows him to cause very large explosions, which he is immune to.
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]
