Uatu[edit]

U-Go Girl[edit]

U-Go Girl (Edie Sawyer) is a mutant, a member of X-Statix. The character, created by Peter Milligan and Mike Allred, first appeared in X-Force #116. She can teleport herself and others who are nearby across the globe, although this is physically draining.

Edie becomes pregnant when she is fifteen, and her parents decide to raise the girl as Edie's sister rather than as her daughter. Her power of teleportation manifests when she first looks at her daughter's face and feels a powerful urge to "get away", and she ends up in Los Angeles.[1] Edie struggles as a waitress and an actress until she becomes smitten with X-Force leader Zeitgeist and decides to try out for the team. She perfects her control over her teleportation and comes up with the codename "Tele-Girl"; she becomes U-Go Girl after she accidentally flashes a crowd during her team tryout and someone screams, "You go, girl!"[2]

Most of the team dies in a fight in New York. Only U-Go Girl, Anarchist, and Doop survive. [3] The team later rebels against their leader Coach, who attempts to rape a temporarily disoriented Edie. She recovers just enough to kill him. After a period of destabilizing powers, U-Go Girl heads home to face the ghosts of her pasts and reunite with her young daughter, Katie, though she maintains the fiction of simply being a much older sister. She also enters into a relationship with her teammate Orphan.[4] Edie later dies during a publicity stunt trip to a space station,[5] and X-Force is renamed X-Statix in her honor.[6]

The Unspoken is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He is the cousin of Blackagar Boltagon (Black Bolt), and was once the king of all Inhumans before he was forced into exile. The Unspoken first appeared in Mighty Avengers #27 and was created by Dan Slott, Khoi Pham, and Christos N. Gage.

Originally, the Unspoken was a just ruler to the Inhumans. However, fearful that it would corrupt his people, he decided to steal the Slave Engine, his people's greatest weapon, along with the Xerogen Crystals it utilized and buried them somewhere in Tibet. After refusing to reveal the Slave Engine's location, he was then challenged to a duel by the heir to the throne, a young Blackagar Boltagon. Despite being by far the strongest of the Inhumans, moving the Slave Engine had weakened the King which led to his defeat at the hands of Blackagar and his friends. His final stipulation was that his deeds be remembered, but Black Bolt had a crueler fate in mind: the King, his deeds, and the Slave Engine itself, were written out of Inhuman history. From that day on, he would be remembered only as a bogeyman to frighten small children, his name forevermore "unspoken".

He was later recovered by the Alpha Primitives, who cared for their fallen king. Realizing his mistake, the Unspoken plotted to return and reclaim his throne, cultivating the Xerogen Crystals, only for Attilan to rise into the sky. Cheated of his redemption and later learning of the silent war between the Inhumans and United States of America, the Unspoken decided to change his plans and unearth the Slave Engine using it to conquer Earth, by transforming all humans on the planet into Alpha Primitives. In the 21st century, the Unspoken was detected in Tibet. G.R.A.M.P.A. interpreted this as a possible alliance between communist China and the Inhumans but were unable to identify the Unspoken. Therefore, they called in Quicksilver, an expert on the Inhumans, and U.S. Agent. The former recognized the Unspoken and advised that they call all the Avengers teams (consisting of the Mighty Avengers, the New Avengers, the Young Avengers, the Avengers Resistance, and even the Dark Avengers) to stop him.[23]

Unfortunately, even the joint forces of the New Avengers, Avengers Resistance and Mighty Avengers failed to stem the tide. Most of their force were mutated by the Xerogen Mists, before the Wasp arrived. They both dueled each other at massive sizes. Wasp called him pathetic, for wallowing in his own misery for his mistakes and not learning to move on. The Unspoken was defeated when the chronal ray on board the Slave Engine that accelerated the growth of the Xerogen crystals was used against him, aging him to the point where he was too weak to carry on fighting. The heroes then allowed the Alpha Primitives to allow the Unspoken to return to his cave to live out the rest of his days.[24]

During the Inhumanity storyline, the Unspoken resurfaced and arrived at New Attilan. Due to Black Bolt missing at the time, the Unspoken proposed to Medusa and tried to cover for his missing brother. Medusa refused the Unspoken's offer and had him incarcerated in the dungeon.[25] The Unspoken soon broke free from his imprisonment and headed to New Attilan's catacombs.[26] It is here that the Unspoken starts looking for Terrigen Crystals in order to replenish his powers. Despite the intervention of Medusa and Gorgon, the Unspoken defeated them and reclaimed the throne.[27] The newly transformed Inhumans later helped the Inhuman Royal Family to fight the Unspoken managing to steal the Terrigen Crystals from him. Upon his defeat and being deprived of the Terrigen Crystals, the Unspoken was reimprisoned in the dungeon.[28]

The Unspoken is the living embodiment of Terrigenesis itself. He is capable of altering his form in any way he desires, and can give himself a wide number of abilities, such as mass manipulation and energy construct manifestation. To maintain his powers, he needs to absorb Terrigen Crystals.

Unus the Untouchable[edit]

Unuscione[edit]

Carmella Unuscione is a mutant, a member of Magneto's Acolytes. The character, created by Scott Lobdell and Brandon Peterson, first appeared in Uncanny X-Men #298 (March 1993). The character has the ability to generate a tangible field composed of bioelectrical-charged psionic energy around herself, forming an exoskeleton. She is portrayed as one of the more fanatical and violent members of the Acolytes, who often come into conflict with the X-Men.

When Avalon, the Acolytes' base of operations, is destroyed, she uses her power to protect her teammates and the X-Man Cyclops. The former enemies cooperate to survive without resources while Professor X and Amelia Voght struggle to find their teammates' whereabouts. Unuscione and the other Acolytes agree to turn themselves over to government custody,[29] but later escape.[30]

Unuscione returns to action with the Acolytes as they attack the X-Mansion following the M-Day.[31] Professor X is placed in the Acolytes' care after he is critically injured by Bishop.[32] Xavier convinces Exodus to disband the Acolytes,[33] and Unuscione and Joanna Cargill move to Utopia.[volume & issue needed]

Other versions of Unuscione[edit]

In the alternate Age of X reality, Unuscione is known as Stand-Off. She is a member of the Force Warriors, a group of psionic mutants who protect "Fortress X", the last known mutant stronghold, by collectively channeling their powers to generate and reinforce a massive psionic shield.[34]

Urthona[edit]

Urthona is an extradimensional sorcerer and enemy of Doctor Strange. The character, created by Peter Gillis and Chris Warner, first appeared in Doctor Strange #78 (August 1986).

Seeking to become Sorcerer Supreme of the entire universe, he targets Doctor Strange. Urthona gains possession of half of Topaz's soul, allowing him to use the other half to learn everything he could about Strange. He sends one of his champions to battle and distract Strange, and mystically transports the Sanctum Sanctorum to his planet, along with Wong, Topaz and all the mystical objects inside. Strange, inhabiting his apprentice Rintrah's body, battles Urthona, and destroys all of his mystic talismans to keep Urthona from possessing them. Strange was not able to destroy the Darkhold, however, so Urthona fled with the book.[35] Eventually, the Darkhold disappears and returns to Earth,[volume & issue needed] and Strange banishes Urthona to a realm far removed from their universe.[volume & issue needed]
