Taegukgi (Tae-Won) is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character, created by Jed MacKay and Alessandro Vitti, first appeared in Taskmaster (vol. 3) #3 (February 2021).

Taegukgi is a South Korean superhero and field leader of the Tiger Division, the country's superhuman response team, and is regarded as its greatest national hero.[1]

Orphaned as a baby in 1950 during the Korean War, Tae-Won was adopted by a similarly orphaned young woman whom he saw as his ajumma. Despite her best efforts, a young Tae-Won fell in with a group of thieves, which eventually became a criminal gang as they got older. In 1978, when the gang broke into a government facility to steal valuable materials, Tae-Won was exposed to energies created by the Psylot Gem, an Asgardian artifact left behind in Korea by Loki many years ago, which was being experimented on by the South Korean government. Instead of harming him, the Psylot Gem granted Tae-Won superhuman abilities. After his ajumma helped him control his powers and showed him the pain and misery inflicted upon civilians by the gang he created, Tae-Won vowed to use his powers to help people in need and to atone for his criminal past, eventually becoming the nation's greatest superhero, Taegukgi.[2]

When Taskmaster infiltrates Tiger Division's base to copy White Fox's kinesic signature, he is forced to flee when Taegukgi intervenes and nearly kills him with his heat vision. Despite this, Taskmaster still succeeds with his objective.[3] As part of a coup, a criminal cult known as the Choi Faction employs Mongdal, a criminal with the ability to transfer his consciousness into the bodies of others, to possess Taegukgi and threatens to have him destroy Seoul unless their demands are met. However, Mongdal double-crosses the Choi Faction and has Taegukgi kill them before possessing him into taking over the country. The Tiger Division is nearly defeated until their ally Black Cat provokes Mongdal's consciousness into returning to his original body and kills him, freeing Taegukgi.[1]

Taegukgi and the Tiger Division are sent to recover the Psylot Gem when it is stolen from its storage unit and track the theft to the mysterious MTO Corporation. The true leader of MTO is revealed to be Min-Jae, Taegukgi's childhood best friend and former partner-in-crime, who reveals the truth behind the Psylot Gem. Despite the efforts of the Tiger Division, Min-Jae steals Taegukgi's powers and seals them back in the Gem. At this moment, Min-Jae's benefactor Doctor Doom arrives to take the Gem's powers for himself, but Taegukgi convinces Min-Jae to help fight against Doom. Taegukgi is able to reclaim his powers from the Gem, which is destroyed during the battle; Doom leaves empty-handed while Min-Jae flees. Taegukgi's relationship with his teammates becomes strained due to him not disclosing his past to them, but they forgive him when he opens up about his ajumma.[2]

Taegukgi travels to Santa Cruz, California, when the ghost of Wrenley Fischer, a telepathic serial killer who once terrorized Seoul until his death twenty years ago, resurfaces and begins killing again. With the help of Ghost Rider, Taekguki is able to exorcise Fischer's spirit.[4]

Powers and abilities

edit

Due to exposure from the mystical Psylot Gem, Taegukgi possesses superhuman strength, durability, speed and stamina, flight, and the ability to shoot energy beams from his eyes.[3][1][5] Taegukgi's strength and powers are noted to be on par with Hyperion, Blue Marvel, and the Sentry.[1] Taegukgi also possesses superhuman longevity, as he still retains the health, appearance, and vitality of a young man in his prime well into the 21st century despite being born during the Korean War.[5] Taegukgi is fluent in both his native Korean and English.[4] Despite his strength and invulnerability, Taegukgi is highly susceptible to psionic abilities, including mind control, body possession, and psychic attacks.[1][4]

Fictional character biography

edit

Tai is an elderly Cambodian mystic who was indirectly responsible for the formation of the New Warriors. She was born into a cult called the Dragon's Breath. Her people derive mystical energy from a well inside their temple that was a nexus into various alternate dimensions. The temple is constructed around the nexus point where vast amounts of mystic energy are constantly released. Throughout the centuries, Tai's people absorb the energy from the well. In a plan called 'The Pact', they devise a detailed program of interbreeding, the goal of which is to enable each successive generation to tap more energy from the well than its previous generation; eventually, one generation would use that power to rule the world. Tai's generation is actually able to harness the energies of the well, and is led to believe that they are the ones to rule the world. Tai refuses to share powers and slays everyone in the cult, except six maiden brides and a series of temple guards.[9]

During the Vietnam War, a unit of American soldiers calling themselves the 'Half-Fulls' encounter the temple but are captured by Tai. Tai tells them the story of her people and that the six soldiers had to marry and procreate with the six maiden brides. All but one of them agree to do so (Daryl Taylor was already married).[9] After their tour, the soldiers return home to America with their new brides, while Tai remains in Cambodia. Tai marries her only daughter, Miyami, to an African American soldier named Andrew Chord. Miyami soon gives birth to two children: Silhouette and Aaron (Midnight's Fire). To prevent her children from being used as Tai's pawns, Miyami fakes their deaths as well as her own, and leaves her children to be raised in Manhattan's Chinatown.[10]

Chord, thinking his family is dead, becomes a mercenary and travels the world. Eventually, he arrives in Cambodia and renews his association with his mother-in-law. Together they return to America. Tai worries her son-in-law fears his place in the pact is moot now that his son is dead. Tai urges Chord to resume his friendship with army buddy Daryl Taylor (the one who rejected the pact). Chord does so and becomes godfather to Daryl and his six-year-old son Dwayne. Tai then demands Chord kill Daryl and his wife Melody; Chord does so, unwillingly, in front of Dwayne. Dwayne is then introduced to Tai and his memory is wiped.[11] Chord and Tai raise Dwayne and train him to be a crime fighter. They also manage Daryl's charitable organization, the Taylor Foundation, often using it to finance questionable activities around the world. Dwayne becomes Night Thrasher and is briefly part of a team with Tai's grandchildren Midnight's Fire and Silhouette. At the time, the three are unaware of the relevant biological relationship. Later, Night Thrasher finds the New Warriors. Tai influences the group from behind the scenes. In "New Warriors" #8, she bets the safety and security of the Warriors on a conflict with Emma Frost. Frost commands her own team of super-powered teens to bring back one of the Warriors, who used to be her student; however, Frost's team is defeated.[12]

Tai hopes to sacrifice the New Warriors to the well instead of the super-powered members of the Folding Circle (the children born from the mating of the soldiers and the brides). Tai and Chord's illegal business dealings are exposed, and Chord attempts suicide rather than admit the truth. While in the hospital, his wife Miyami visits him. Tai discovers this and is enraged that her daughter had faked her death and the deaths of her grandchildren. Tai murders her daughter in a fit of anger. Tai also uses her power to heal Chord of his brutal injuries, though she is unable to completely restore him.[13]

Tai later returns to Cambodia. She is soon followed by the Folding Circle, now led by the Left Hand, a rogue-powered villain influenced by the energies of the well. The New Warriors also follow in an Avengers' Quinjet. Tai attempts to sacrifice both groups to the well. They work together to try and save each other, but it all comes down to Dwayne, who uses an Uzi submachine gun to injure and seemingly kill Tai. Both she and the Left Hand are sucked down into the well.[11]

Tai has appeared a couple times since her death in time travel storylines. In a storyline in Darkhawk, Tai's granddaughter Silhouette is sent back in time to stop Tai from murdering Miyami.[14] In a storyline in the Night Thrasher comic book series, Silhouette is sent back in time to Tai's childhood, where she encounters Tai and her peers as children in the cult. The five-year-old Tai tells Silhouette she can send her home if Silhouette will murder one of her rivals. Silhouette refuses and murders her grandmother as a child.[15]

Talon

edit

Talon is a fictional character in the Earth-691 timeline of the Marvel Universe. He is a feline Inhuman and sorcerer apprentice to Krugarr, and a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Talon debuted in Guardians of the Galaxy #18 (November 1991).

According to creator Jim Valentino, he wanted to use Wolverine in a storyline where the Guardians had briefly returned to Earth, but Bob Harras, the X-Men editor of the time, did not want it established that Wolverine could live that long. Thus, Valentino created Talon, influenced by Steve Englehart's take on the Beast during his time with the Avengers.[16] Valentino later stated that Talon "wasn't gay, as some people thought. I thought it would lighten things up to have a happy-go-lucky screw-up on the team since, when looked at properly, the Guardians were not a superhero team, but rather a light army."[17]

Talon has some superhuman abilities thanks to his genetically superior Inhuman physiology; he has also possibly been exposed to the mutagenic Terrigen Mist. He has a feline form: an orange fur-covered body, razor-sharp talons on his hands and feet, pointed ears, pronounced canine teeth, and a 3+12-foot prehensile tail. He has superhuman strength, is an Olympic-level acrobat and gymnast, and is a highly skilled hand-to-hand combatant. The talons on his hands and feet can be detached and hurled as weapons, then regrow instantly.

Fictional character biography

edit

As an infant, Temugin was delivered to a monastery in the Himalayas by his father, the Mandarin. Confident the monks would educate the boy, the Mandarin cut off almost all communication with his son, which left Temugin with abandonment issues.[44]

Temugin appears in the miniseries Iron Man: Enter the Mandarin, where the Mandarin uses his mind control ring to force Temugin to kill Tony Stark. He later shoots Stark in the chest, and deduces the man's secret when the suit's chest plate stops the bullet. Temugin escapes and returns to the monastery, and a disappointed Mandarin wipes his mind of the incident.[45]

After the Mandarin's death in a battle against Iron Man, Temugin receives his father's 10 rings of power and discovers that, for honor's sake, he must kill Iron Man so his father's spirit can find peace.[46] Luring Iron Man to his father's fortress, Temugin proves more than a match for Iron Man's mechanically enhanced strength. However, before he can kill Iron Man, another enemy of the Mandarin attacks and the fortress erupts into flames.[volume & issue needed]

Temugin later appears in MODOK's 11 #4, wherein he has been contacted by the double-crossing Spot, who promptly hands over the weapon that MODOK had been planning to steal. In this appearance, Temugin speaks of the Mandarin as "my late father" and bears the rings, one of which he uses to imprison Spot in another dimension with nothing but money.[47] In the following issue, the Puma tears off at least one of his hands. However, it is possible that he retained at least half of the rings, as Nightshade, who used the rings on his lost hand, was not seen with them at the end of the story.[48]

However, much later Temugin is seen among the Agents of Atlas, appointed as a second in command, and possible replacement, for Jimmy Woo, current head figure for the Atlas Foundation. Now sporting a bulky prosthetic, Temugin initially comes into conflict with Jimmy Woo over what he perceives as Woo's cowardly behavior and pointlessly complicated planning. The two gradually become friends over the course of several battles, most notably versus Jade Claw.[49]

Sasha Hammer is his paternal half-sister.

Wanting to eliminate the Carbones, a crime family situated in Brooklyn, the Punisher infiltrates the group with the aid of a petty criminal named Mickey Fondozzi. The Carbones are led by Julius, whose second in-command is his brother Salvatore (Sal).[63] While Julius welcomes Mickey and the Punisher (who had adopted the alias "Johnny Tower") into the organization, Sal dislikes the two, and is suspicious of their motives, correctly assuming that they are sabotaging the Carbones' operations.[64]

Needing leverage to get Sal off of their backs, Mickey and the Punisher spy on him, and discover that he is consorting with rival Asian gangsters. Enraged by Sal's treachery, Julius orders Mickey and the Punisher to dispose of him, so the two drug Sal and drive him out to New Jersey. Due to his frequent narcotics usage, Sal is able to resist the drugs he was given and tries to flee, but falls through the ice on a frozen lake. Believing Sal to be dead, Mickey and the Punisher leave.[65]

Sal survives, and regains consciousness in a hospital, which he escapes from.[66] Recalling nothing about his past other than vague details about the people who tried to kill him, Sal robs and murders a man, and begins making his way to La Isla de Tiburones Durmientes, where Julius' daughter is about to marry a Sicilian mobster. When a motorist he flags down asked for his name, Sal, unable to remember, replies by saying "Thorn", a word he glimpsed on a billboard.[67]

After swimming to La Isla de Tiburones Durmientes, Thorn runs amok, killing his niece's fiancé and Julius, among others. The Punisher stops Thorn's rampage by shooting him repeatedly and knocking him into the ocean.[68][69] Thorn recovers, and later murders a trio of drug dealers for their car, which he drives to New York. Thorn finds and attacks Mickey and the Punisher, but the fight is interrupted by the boss of the dealers Thorn killed. After massacring the head dealer and his underlings, Thorn and the Punisher continue their brawl, which ends when the Punisher throws Thorn off of a bridge and onto a moving truck. The truck brings Thorn to New Jersey, and he is last seen wandering Newark.[70]

Powers and abilities

edit

For unexplained reasons, nearly dying in a frigid lake left Thorn unable to feel pain, allowing him to sustain severe injuries (such as multiple gunshots) without being deterred. Thorn's brush with death also eliminated his need for basic human necessities such as food, water, air, and protection from the elements, and made him repellent towards animals such as sharks.

Reception

edit

In a 2009 interview with Comic Book Resources, illustrator Dale Eaglesham expressed fondness for the character, stating "I spent some time in the Punisher department from 93 to 95 and I really enjoyed working with Frank Castle. However, there's another Punisher-related character that I feel I have unfinished business with: Sal Carbone, the man they call Thorn. He went toe-to-toe with Castle and survived because he thinks he's already dead. He's insane, and he would actually make a great Punisher! Maybe I can talk Ed Brubaker into that one; I think he would love it."[71]

Thorn ranked #4 on The Robot's Voice list "The 8 Worst Punisher Villains Ever".[72]

Fictional character biography

edit

When Garm and Hel-Wolf are left together by Kid Loki, they conceive seven Hel pups, one of which is Thori. While his siblings inherited their mother's loyal nature, Thori inherited his father's vicious nature. Garm gives the pups to Loki as a gift, since she didn't have time to raise them. However, the All-Mothers (Freyja, Gaea, and Idunn) order Loki to find another home for the pups, so Loki and Leah leave six of the pups with Mephisto, Gaea, Warlock, Heimdall, Tyr, and an Earth animal shelter. Only Thori remains, but Loki is unable to find a home for the pup. Although the All-Mothers order him to destroy the pup, since he is beyond salvation, Loki decides to keep him as his pet and names him 'Thori' after his brother, Thor.[73]

When Daimon Hellstrom joins Loki to battle Nightmare, Thori immediately grows fond of Daimon and asks him to be his new master.[74] After the Disir attack, Thori helps Thor, Loki, and the Warriors Three go to Sigurd and the New Mutants.[75] When Loki is trapped in Muspelheim, Thor tries to lead Hel-Wolf away from Loki, but Thori betrays them and directs his father to Loki. After the events of the Everything Burns storyline, where the Aesir battle the Vanir, Thori remains with his father.[76]

When Angela comes to Hel to get the soul of her love, Sera, and take control of Hel, Thori aids Hela, Hel-Wolf, and the Disir in the battle; however, Sera traps him. After Angela is successful in the battle, she resurrects Sera and, along with Leah (an alternate version of Hela), brings Thori to Brooklyn. After defeating the Faustian Queen, an alternate version of Angela, Leah takes Thori and leaves New York.[77]

At some point, Thori is captured by the Collector as part of his museum. When Odinson tries to retrieve Ultimate Thor's Mjolnir, he comes across Thori, who manages to escape with Odinson and stays at his side afterwards.[78][79]

Tiboro is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

Tiboro is a humanoid being from the so-called "Sixth Dimension" who ruled a tribe of Earth humans in South America ages ago, but was eventually banished. He now waits for Earth's civilization to fall into decadence and decay so that he can rule the whole planet.[81] Most of Tiboro's power is contained in his wand, but he can also exercise formidable magical abilities without such artificial aids. Tiboro uses an artifact called the Screaming Idol to communicate with creatures on Earth while he is in his own dimension.[82]

In modern times, Tiboro has become a minor nemesis of Doctor Strange.[82] During the Death of Doctor Strange storyline, Tiboro has claimed his ancient territory in Peru. Clea later mentions to Classic Doctor Strange and those present that Tiboro and the other inter-dimensional warlords are fleeing from the Three Mothers.[83]

Tick-Tock

edit

Tick-Tock is a fictional Marvel Comics character created by Ann Nocenti and Brian Postman. He is a mutant, and first appeared in Spider-Woman #50.

Fictional character biography

edit

Tick-Tock is introduced as he helps the Locksmith capture and imprison various San Francisco-based superheroes and supervillains, including Spider-Woman.[84] He uses his precognitive abilities to help prevent breakouts, anticipating the prisoners' attempts before they can happen. However, he does not foresee that when Spider-Woman breaks out, she changes costumes with the Gypsy Moth. Placing the two women in each other's cells, Spider-Woman is then able to escape and free the others, and the Locksmith and Tick-Tock are sent to prison.[85]

Tick-Tock later joins the Shroud's group Night Shift and assists in their assault upon the Power Broker alongside Captain America (pretending to be hypnotized by Dansen Macabre). Tick-Tock enables the group to get past the guards at the gate by predicting their movements. Tick-Tock helps Captain America and the Shroud guard the prisoners they take inside the Power Broker's mansion, and ultimately escapes with the Night Shift, evading the authorities.[29]

Later, Tick-Tock joins the Night Shift to observe as the Shroud tests Moon Knight to serve as his replacement in the Night Shift.[30]

After Digger is arrested by the Mockingbird, Tick-Tock joins the Night Shift in attacking the Avengers Compound, unaware that the Mockingbird was no longer an Avenger. Tick-Tock helps the Brothers Grimm defeat the Vision by predicting when he would become solid, but the team is finally defeated by the Avengers. They are then rescued by the Shroud.[86]

When the Hangman assumes control of the Night Shift, he encourages each member to join him in a campaign of terror against Hollywood, pointing to their backgrounds for reasons why they should hate Hollywood. He notes that Tick-Tock once wanted to be a timer in an animation studio. Tick-Tock joins the Night Shift in receiving new power from Satannish, but loses a portion of his soul as a result. He accompanies the Night Shift as they capture Hawkeye, the second Spider-Woman, and U.S. Agent, then attempt to offer their souls to Satannish.[87] Iron Man and the Living Lightning follow Digger to the Tower of Shadows, and save their teammates from the Night Shift. Tick-Tock attempts to defeat them with his new powers, slowing the Avengers down, but Spider-Woman is outside his path, and knocks him out from behind. They are then teleported away from the Avengers by Dansen Macabre. Later, Tick-Tock and the Night Shift attack Wonder Man, but Tick-Tock finds that Wonder Man is immune to his powers, possibly because of his ionic energies. After Wonder Man is captured, he convinces the Night Shift to allow him to join them in their campaign against Hollywood by making their own film, titled "The Demon That Devoured Hollywood".[88]

When U.S. Agent assumes the part Wonder Man had been playing in their film, the Night Shift attack him, and Tick-Tock slows him down long enough for the Misfit, Digger, and the Hangman to knock him out. Realizing that Wonder Man intended to betray them, they also bring him down.[89] As the Night Shift continue with their film project, the Avengers attack them, all on film. The Night Shift nearly defeat them, but then learn from Doctor Strange that they have lost part of their souls to Satannish. They then turn on the Hangman, and help the Avengers and Doctor Strange drive Satannish back to his own realm.[90]

Tick-Tock is with the Night Shift when they are hired by the crime lord Snapdragon on Count Nefaria's behalf to capture Moon Knight.[91] When Moon Knight refuses Tick-Tock's offer to accompany them, the Night Shift attack, and Tick-Tock accidentally hits Tatterdemalion while trying to shoot Maya Lopez. After Echo knocks out Digger, she uses a shovel to stab Tick-Tock. Moon Knight and Echo defeat the Night Shift, who are then arrested by the police.[92] As Tick-Tock is interrogated by the LAPD's Detective Hall, Count Nefaria's lawyer shows up and ends the interrogation. After Count Nefaria's lawyer states that the Night Shift are victims of a beating from vigilantes, the Night Shift are released from police custody.[93] Later, Snapdragon and Count Nefaria confront the Night Shift on why they failed their mission, and Count Nefaria insults them for their incompetence. Before the Night Shift can answer, Count Nefaria uses his ionic energy blasts to incinerate them, and tells Snapdragon to aim a little higher the next time she asks for outside help.[94]

Fictional character biography

edit

After Monkey Joe's death by Leather Boy,[99] Squirrel Girl (Doreen Allene Green) choses a new squirrel to act as her companion. She considers naming her 'Monkey Joe 2' before settling on 'Tippy-Toe' and giving her a pink ribbon. She recruits an army of local squirrels to aid the Great Lakes Avengers (GLA) in battling Maelstrom and Batroc's Brigade. All of the squirrels die, except Tippy-Toe, who becomes Squirrel Girl's new permanent partner.[100]

Tippy-Toe assists Squirrel Girl on several adventures, including defeating MODOK. when she scratches his face, disables his Doomsday Chair, and disarms Thanos. Deathurge, trapped in the form of a squirrel for months, offers to murder Tippy-Toe and bring her soul to Oblivion to escape his squirrel form. However, this proves more difficult then Deathurge planned, as Tippy-Toe continually evades his traps.[101]

When Speedball visits the University of Wisconsin, Squirrel Girl goes to meet him, but instead ends up fighting Bug-Eyed Voice, who tries to attack Speedball. Fortunately, Tippy-Toe contacts Speedball's manager and has him meet Squirrel Girl at the GLX headquarters.[102]

During a visit to New York City, Squirrel Girl and Tippy-Toe help The Thing defeat Bi-Beast in Central Park.[103]

When Squirrel Girl decides to leave the GLA and return to New York City, Tippy-Toe moves with her.[104][105][106] While Doreen enrolls as a computer science student at Empire State University, Tippy-Toe continues to aid Squirrel Girl in her heroics.[107] Tippy-Toe accompanies Squirrel Girl to the Moon to confront Galactus and also visits Nutopia XXIV with them.[108][109]

Later, she nearly sacrifices her life to save Doreen when she is sent to the Moon by Allene.[113]

Searching from a way to defeat Galactus, the Chtty and the Chrrt-chuks abduct Tippy-Toe (and Nancy Whitehead by mistake) and place then into a simulation to trick them into revealing the secrets of Galactus's defeat.[115] It is revealed that the Chrrt-chuks are actually being extorted by a fake Silver Surfer.[116] Gaining a small portion of the Power Cosmic, Tippy-Toe tries to punish the grifters, but when she is outwitted, she gives the Power Cosmic to Nancy instead.[117]

Titan (First Imperial Guard version)

edit
First appearanceX-Men #107 (October 1977)
Created byChris Claremont and Dave Cockrum
SpeciesUnidentified extraterrestrial race
TeamsImperial Guard
Abilities
  • Expand his body to giant size
  • Superhuman strength and mass

Created by Chris Claremont and Dave Cockrum, the character first appeared in X-Men #107 (October 1977). The alien version of Titan is a size-shifting warrior serving in the Royal Elite of the Shi'ar Imperial Guard, a multi-ethnic group of super-powered alien beings who act as enforcers of the laws of the Shi'ar Empire. Titan can expand his body to giant size, and has superhuman strength and mass. (Like many original members of the Imperial Guard, Titan is the analog of a character from DC Comics' Legion of Super-Heroes: in this case, Colossal Boy.[118])

Titan is amongst the first of the Imperial Guard encountered by the team of superhuman mutants known as the X-Men who sought to rescue Princess Lilandra from her insane brother, Emperor D'Ken. Following the orders of their emperor, the Guard clash with the X-Men on a nameless Shi'ar Empire planet, and are on the verge of winning when the band of interstellar freebooters known as the Starjammers arrive to turn the tide of battle in the X-Men's favor.[119]

Some time later, when Deathbird is empress, Titan joins the other Imperial Guard members in battle against Excalibur and the Starjammers, with Titan fighting Captain Britain.[120] Later, on Deathbird's behalf, Titan assists the Imperial Guardsmen in battle against the X-Men and Starjammers, but is defeated by them.[121]

Later, after Lilandra becomes leader of the Shi'ar Empire, Titan is amongst a small group of Imperial Guard that defend their Empress Lilandra against the Kree super-team known as Starforce, during the war between the Shi'ar and Kree Empires. Titan battles the Supremor android.[122] Titan also joins in the Imperial Guard's battle with the Avengers on the Shi'ar throne world of Chandilar during the Kree-Shi'ar War, but is defeated by the Scarlet Witch.[123]

Ronan the Accuser subsequently leads the Kree in a surprise attack against the Shi'ar, using the Inhumans as an army to disrupt the Shi'ar control of the Kree. Appearing over the city of Attilan, Ronan seizes control in a surprise attack and forces the Inhumans and their king, Black Bolt, to obey him, threatening to destroy their only home and everyone in it. He compels Karnak, Gorgon, and Triton to covertly join the Imperial Guard, while Black Bolt and Medusa attempt to assassinate Lilandra at a ceremony ratifying an alliance between the Shi'ar and the Spartoi. Black Bolt manages to defeat Ronan in personal combat;[124] the attempt on Lilandra's life fails because the shapeshifting Imperial Guardsman Hobgoblin dies in her place.[125]

In the battle against Vulcan, Titan seems to be killed,[126] but is actually only seriously wounded and later reappears.[127]

Titan is among the Imperial Guardsmen who attacked the Kree homeworld in War of Kings.[128] During the assault, Hussar and Electron fight Ronan the Accuser, who is ultimately defeated by Titan.[129]

The Realm of Kings crossover series sees the Shi'ar team up with the Starjammers to investigate "The Fault," a space-time anomaly that not only threatens Shi'ar space, but all of reality. This crisis leads to Titan's actual death (along with Starbolt, Black Light, and Neutron).[130]

Titan (Second Imperial Guard version)

edit

A new Titan is recruited from the ranks of the Subguardians and joins the Imperial Guard on a number of subsequent missions, told in such storylines as Infinity,[131] "The Trial of Jean Grey",[132] "Time Runs Out",[133] and the return of Thanos.[134]

Titannus is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

Fictional character biography

edit

Originally, Titannus was a Skrull who, lacking shape-shifting abilities, became one of the subjects of the Super-Skrull project, giving him enhanced strength and a healing factor that would allow him to recover from any wound. Leaving his world, he eventually arrives on the planet Trellion, whose inhabitants brainwash him to act as their agent. Believing that he was fleeing an oppressive ruler, he escapes with the woman he loves (against her will) and travels to Earth, seeking the aid of heroes to revolt against Trellion.[135] After his spacecraft crash lands in Japan, Titannus observes the heroes of Earth for several months and attempts to "gain their attention" by destroying Tokyo, defeating the premier superhero of Japan (Sunfire) and killing countless soldiers of the Japanese army.[136]

Sensing the disturbance, Doctor Strange assembles a new team of Defenders to oppose the alien, consisting of Spider-Man, She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, Nova, and Hulk. The team meets Wolverine in Tokyo, where he is already attempting to fight Titannus. Titannus attempts to befriend them by recounting his brainwashed story, claiming that he had merely lost his temper when attacked by Sunfire, but Doctor Strange senses little truth in Titannus' words. Ultimately, the superheroes are unable to stop Titannus, who defeats the Hulk by absorbing his empowering gamma radiation, as well as breaks She-Hulk's left arm. When Titannus' beloved is woken up by Strange and Nova, the truth is revealed and Titannus, having been so dependent on his love for her, is driven to suicide by her rejection—apparently killing himself by crushing his own head. Spider-Man later speculates that she was angry at the failure of her peoples' plan to attack Earth's heroes.[137]

However, Titannus' healing factor is so advanced that it allowed him to grow a new head, albeit giving him amnesia. Later, insane scientists from Tokyo take control of Titannus and order him to attack the United States, believing that Titannus had been part of a US attempt to conquer Japan. Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, Ms Marvel, She-Hulk, Wolverine, Luke Cage, and Captain America assemble and defeat Titannus, who is taken in by S.H.I.E.L.D., thanks to the new arrival of Crusader, who distracts him by creating an illusionary reality where he killed all of his opponents. Meanwhile, Doctor Strange finds the people controlling him, and modify their technology to keep Titannus dormant.[138]

The two goats were vital in a later Marvel Comics story; they believed a tale of danger to Odin and summoned reinforcements. They later made sure various Asgardian children were safe when an invading army threatened.[154]

Larry Trask

edit

Larry Trask is a fictional character in Marvel Comics, the mutant son of scientist Bolivar Trask, creator of the Sentinels. The character first appeared in X-Men #57 (June 1969) and was created by Roy Thomas and Neal Adams.

Fictional character biography

edit

At the age of five, Larry's mutant power of precognition manifests when he predicts the death of his mother.[163] Soon after, he loses his older sister Tanya, a mutant time-traveler who becomes lost in the timestream.

Fearful of the "mutant menace", Bolivar crafts a medallion that blocks Larry's powerful visions of the future, as well as erases any memory of them.[164] As his son grows older, Bolivar enlists Larry's help in the creation of the first wave of Sentinels. Bolivar occasionally removes Larry's medallion so that he can secretly observe and record Larry's predictions about future mutants, and Larry accurately predicts the assassination attempt of Senator Robert Kelly.[volume & issue needed]

Larry is skeptical of his father's hatred of mutants, until the night his sister Tanya (now calling herself Madame Sanctity) returns to the past. Tanya hopes to change the future by stopping her father's creation of the Sentinels, but she is thwarted by her friend Rachel Summers. Though Rachel successfully prevents Larry from witnessing the psychic duel that ensues, she cannot hide the physical damage caused by the fight. This convinces Larry that dangerous mutants do exist.[volume & issue needed]

Larry Trask later blames the X-Men for his father's death, and uses Bolivar's notes to create a new, stronger wave of Sentinels. He is aided in his effort by Federal Judge Robert Chalmers, who is a friend of Bolivar's and knew Larry's secret.[163] Larry Trask creates a base for his Sentinels in the Colorado Rockies, and orders robots to abduct and detain all known mutants. One of these mutants is Alex Summers, whom Larry gives a containment suit to control his unstable powers.[165] Chalmers becomes disillusioned with Larry's plans, and he forcefully removes Larry's medallion, hoping that Larry would cease his attacks on mutants if he learned the truth about his own mutation. This, however, backfires; when a furious Larry orders the Sentinels to destroy all mutants, he himself was targeted for annihilation.[164]

The Sentinels are eventually outwitted by Cyclops, and fly into the sun (perceived by them as the source of all mutations) to apparently be destroyed.[163] Meanwhile, Larry has plunged into a state of catatonic shock, and Chalmers puts the medallion back on him to erase the knowledge of what had happened to him.[166]

The Mark II Sentinels later return from space and abduct the Scarlet Witch as part of an elaborate plan to prevent the birth of future mutants by sterilizing humanity. Larry is abducted by the Scarlet Witch's brother Quicksilver, who remembers Trask from when he and his sister were previously abducted by the Sentinels.[163] Quicksilver removes Larry's medallion, restoring Larry's knowledge of a Sentinel base in Australia.[167] The duo travels to the secret base, and Larry stops the Sentinels by revealing that the lead Sentinel was mutated during its time in space, causing the others to turn on it and destroy it, thus deactivating themselves. One of the Sentinels falls onto Larry and kills him.[167]

Trauma

edit

Trauma is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

Trauma, whose real name is Troh-Maw, is the son of Lord Armageddon, the ruler of an extraterrestrial race known as the Troyjans. Trauma comes to Earth to collect on a debt of the Pantheon's leader, Agamemnon, who promised the Troyjans one of his descendants in exchange for technology to extend his children's lifespans.

Trauma often storms the Pantheon's headquarters to take Atalanta, who always draws him back. After the Hulk joins the Pantheon, Trauma corners Atalanta in the Himalayas and confessed his love for her, but is defeated by the Hulk before he can kidnap her. Trauma later abducts Atalanta and brings her to his homeworld, with the Hulk and the Pantheon in pursuit. The Hulk arrives in time to stop the wedding and challenges Trauma to a duel. Their fight ends when Trauma stumbles over a piece of armor which pierces his heart. Before dying, Trauma proves his love to Atalanta by releasing the Pantheon from their debt and begging Lord Armageddon to allow the Pantheon to return to Earth.[168]

Judas Traveller

edit

Dr. Judas Traveller is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He first appeared in Web of Spider-Man #117 (October 1994).[169] He was created by writer Terry Kavanagh and artist Steven Butler. Judas Traveller was introduced in the infamous "Clone Saga".[170] The character's agenda is to analyze the true nature of evil. Taking interest in Spider-Man and his clone, Traveller with his ally Scrier and his Host (a group of 4 of his students) pit Spider-Man both teaming and against his clone in a test of motivation. He was described by Spider-Man writer Glenn Greenberg as a deus ex machina character with ill-defined powers: "no one – not the writers, not the editors – seemed to know who or what the heck Judas Traveller was. He was seemingly this immensely powerful, quasi-mystical being with amazing abilities, but what was the real deal with him? ... But to be honest, a character like Traveller didn't really fit into Spider-Man's world."[171] As such, Traveller's role would remain a mystery to readers for a while, as writers dropped him in and out of this saga.[172] It was eventually revealed that everything Traveller knew about himself is a lie. In reality, he is a criminal psychologist who suffered a mental breakdown, awakening his dormant mutant powers to alter perception. With these abilities, he often appears far more powerful than he really is. This is the truth that Chakra told Ben Reilly. During this story, Judas is betrayed by the Scrier, and rescued by Ben Reilly and his own love interest, Chakra. He is a pawn of Norman Osborn against Spider-Man, and is eventually betrayed by Osborn.[173][174]

Traveller is a creature who has walked the planet for ages, seeking the true meaning of evil and how it manifests within humans. His memories are filled with past events which he witnessed and studied to understand the human soul. He eventually set his sights on studying Spider-Man, as he could not yet comprehend if Spider-Man was the cause of evil re-presenting itself in his enemies or a beacon of good that would stand against evil.[volume & issue needed]

After an invitation by Dr. Ashley Kafka, Judas Traveller and his Host come to Ravencroft Institute in the opening arc of the Clone Saga, Power and Responsibility. Intending to study the nature of good and evil by using Spider-Man as his test subject, Judas Traveller orchestrates a breakout on Ravencroft and spurs Peter Parker to stop the detainees from escaping. Peter Parker fails and is captured. As a backup, Chakra convinces Ben Reilly to take up the mantle and come to Ravencroft. Ben helps Peter and both face Judas.[175]

Traveller appears during the Clone Saga, infatuated with understanding every minute detail of Peter Parker's life. He is seen with a "Host": four people who are supposed to aid him in his journey of study (Medea, Mister Nacht, Boone, and Chakra), and Scrier (an enigmatic being who is seen as Traveller's confidante and has been with him through the ages). During this time, Parker's life is in disarray due to the passing of Aunt May, the charges of murder levied against him, and the potentially problematic pregnancy of his wife Mary Jane. Traveller struggles to understand what drives Parker to continue on this path of seeking justice when most humans would have broken under the stress. He approaches a stressed Mary Jane in an attempt to search her soul for answers, but Ben Reilly relentlessly fights past all of Traveller's obstacles to keep him out of her life. Seeing Reilly's resolve, Traveller agrees to leave her alone, but he also mentions that he has just as much interest in Reilly and would seek him out eventually.[volume & issue needed]

While Parker is imprisoned for crimes, Traveller sends Chakra to inform him that Mary Jane is being stalked by Kaine. He watches to see what Parker will choose to do, and eventually aids him by casting an illusion of him in his cell, allowing Parker to escape from prison. While Traveller admits to Scrier that both Parker and Reilly fascinate him, he assures him that not even Scrier is able to understand why.[176]

After Parker and Reilly switch places in prison and Parker dons the Scarlet Spider costume, Traveller follows him around the city and eventually confronts him, places Mary Jane unconscious, and gives Parker a choice to make his life better. He shows Peter the image of Aunt May in a crystal ball and suggests that he could bring her back to life and give Parker a world where he no longer has to worry about the clones or the charges now against Reilly. Parker refuses and fights back Traveller, claiming that everything is taking place in his mind, Traveller is not God and doesn't have the power to restore lives. Traveller responds by showing Parker a world twenty-four hours in the future, a destroyed city supposedly the result of Parker's actions. He claims that Parker can still stop this world from coming to pass if he can stop his Host from going through with their plans. As part of this test, Traveller agrees to use his powers to protect Mary Jane so, no matter what happens, she and the unborn child would be safe.[177]

Parker goes after the Host and manages to stop them from going through with their plan, but another anomaly arises from the point of origin where Traveller used his powers to show Parker the future. His misuse of that power causes a rift in the space-time continuum that attempts to correct itself through Traveller who can no longer control his powers. While Scrier refuses to help, Parker decides to pull Traveller from the rift before he causes the destroyed future he had witnessed only minutes earlier. Upon saving him, Scrier gathers an unconscious Traveller and leaves after telling Parker that Traveller would not be satisfied with the turn of events.[178]

While Parker (back in his original Spider-Man garb) fights Kaine in an attempt to clear his name, Traveller interrupts their fight. He teleports them to a sub-basement beneath Ravencroft and forces both of them into a "trial" where Spider-Man is charged for his entire life as a superhero, questioning that if Spider-Man no longer existed, his superpowered enemies would have no reason to exist.[179]

He chooses Carnage to be the prosecuting attorney (which allows him to have knowledge of Spider-Man's true identity), Kaine the defense attorney, and a number of Ravencroft inmates to be the jury. Kaine attacks Traveller and attempts to leave his "mark" on his face, but Traveller is unaffected and displays his power by holding Kaine in the palm of his hand. He lets the brief trial unfold the only way that it could, with all supervillains wanting Spider-Man dead. Traveller binds Spider-Man and allows the supervillains, led by Carnage, to carry out Spider-Man's death sentence. Kaine, however, jumps into the fray, determined to protect Spider-Man's life at any cost. Before Kaine could be killed by the mob, Traveller disperses the entire group and returns them to their cells as he had gotten the answer he wanted. The entire ordeal had only been to see how Spider-Man's actions (or lack thereof in this case) could motivate the actions of someone as corrupt as Kaine. As a result, he returns Spider-Man and Kaine to their previous place of battle, saying that his current investigation had been concluded for the time being. As his last act of ending the trial, he removed Spider-Man's secret identity from the minds of Carnage and all those who were previously aware.[180]

The mystery of Judas Traveller eventually reaches a conclusion just before the final arc of the Clone Saga. Judas's followers, the Host, betray him and lock him up inside a coffin in a pool. Chakra, the only one loyal to her master, joins forces with Ben Reilly and Peter Parker as they face a horde of Scriers and foil a possible alliance with New York crime boss the Rose and his personal assistant/assassin Delilah. After rescuing Judas, he and Chakra depart to regions unknown, but not before the man gives both Spider-Men a warning.[181]

Judas Traveller later became the head of the Culture and Narrative department of Orchis.[182]

Little is known about the girl before she arrives at Halo City, but she soon becomes part of the teen group X-Nation. Some time later, Avian decides to mount a mission to recapture Willow in a bid to be the first to find the messiah for himself. He attacks the children and recapturing Willow. Wanting to rescue their friend, X-Nation decides to infiltrate the Million Palms facility and save her.

Their home has been blown up by the Atlantean army and is flooding. Furthermore, Exodus has awoken from another century-long slumber and tries to make X-Nation his Acolytes. They refuse and are subsequently beaten, but Twilight is one of the few who implicitly does not trust Exodus. When Exodus refuses to save the human population of Halo City, they refused to be in service to him. Twilight tries to strike down the powerful mutant with her powers, but he leaves her "sphere of influence" unharmed. He retaleates, nearly killing her if not for the magical intervention of Mademoiselle Strange.

edit

Tyrannus is a character appearing in American comic books connected to Marvel Comics. The character first appeared in The Incredible Hulk #5 (January 1963), and was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.[196] The character was inspired by Ayesha, the protagonist of H. Rider Haggard's 1887 novel She: A History of Adventure.[197]

Fictional character biography

edit

In the Roman Empire, Tyrannus claims to be a "sorcerer" but is actually a scientist far ahead of his time. When he tries to conquer Britain, he is exiled by King Arthur and Merlin to Subterranea, a network of caves and tunnels miles beneath the Earth's surface. There, Tyrannus discovers a race of orange-skinned semi-humanoid Subterraneans who are eager to find in him a new master to serve. He also discovers a pool of liquid which he drinks to maintain his youth through the centuries. The Subterraneans acquaint Tyrannus with examples and records of technology designed by the Deviants, their original masters. Tyrannus' scientific genius enables him to master and improve upon the Deviants' scientific wonders over the centuries. Tyrannus becomes Emperor of the Tyrannoid Subterraneans and an aspiring conqueror.[198]

In the modern era, Tyrannus is finally ready to use this technology and the Subterraneans in conquering the surface world. He makes several attempts as well as fighting wars against the forces of a new arrival in Subterranea, the Mole Man.

Tyrannus lures Betty Ross underground and kidnaps her with his Tyrannoids. When the Hulk challenges him, he agrees to give her back on the condition that the Hulk performs a list of nigh-impossible menial tasks. However, eventually the Hulk completes the list and causes a lot of damage in the Kingdom, and Tyrannus is forced to honor his word.[199] Tyrannus is reverted to an old man when the Mole Man captures his "fountain of youth". Tyrannus uses the Hulk as a pawn by teleporting him underground and recapturing the fountain. Banner succeeds in teleporting himself back.[200] Tyrannus forces scientist Ralph Roberts to design a gigantic robot for him to use in his war against the Mole Man, but is defeated by the X-Men.[201] He decides to gain revenge on the Hulk by using advanced technology to temporarily drive him into destructive rampages. He uses the Hulk and the robot Mogul as slaves in his war against the Mole Man.[202] He later secretly allies with Kala against the Mole Man.[203] Tyrannus projects his consciousness into a Subterranean, who attacks New York City but is thwarted by Nova.[204]

In the guise of the aged "Des", Tyrannus becomes an ally of Prince Rey and the Keeper of the Flame of El Dorado, an immensely powerful cobalt energy "flame" created in the Andes Mountains of South America by the Deviants and maintained by the people of the lost city of El Dorado. Des then captures the Hulk.[205] Des restores his youthfulness and kills Rey and the Keeper.[206] Tyrannus merges with the Flame, allowing his consciousness to control it.[207] The Hulk destroys the machinery from which the Flame arises, and the Flame, still infused with Tyrannus's consciousness, is hurled far into outer space.[208]

The Abomination's atomized body later merges with the disembodied mind of Tyrannus. This gestalt being attempts to force Bruce Banner to cure this condition, but the procedure goes wrong, leaving Tyrannus' mind in the Abomination's body and returning Blonsky to a normal human form.[209] Tyrannus briefly operates as the Abomination and attacks Wonder Man[210] and Hawkeye,[211] until Ghaur and Llyra free Tyrannus from the Abomination's body and restore him to human form; Tyrannus then adopts the guise of "Dr. Tyrone".[212] As Dr. Tyrone, he transforms a number of alcoholics and drug addicts into serpent men, and enslaves Spider-Man.[213] Tyrannus then battles Daredevil and Doctor Strange. He attempts to bring Set to Earth, but is attacked by Viper and swallowed by a serpent demon.[214]

Bruce Banner and Skaar later fight Tyrannus when he and the Tyrannoids attack Manhattan.[215] Tyrannus's energy sword reappears in Banner's possession during the funeral for Hercules. He gives the sword to Amadeus Cho when they are forced to battle Nightmare and Phobos.[216]

Later, when he tries to acquire Pandora's box, he gets Betty Ross (Red She-Hulk) to help him by tricking the Hulk into opening the casing of the powerful artifact by thinking Betty is trapped inside, thus releasing its energies in the process.[217] Later in the same story arc, Red She-Hulk not only runs off with Tyrannus, but also sleeps with him,[218] although she eventually returns to Hulk after reconciling her rebellious Hulk instincts with her human desires.[219]

Powers and abilities

edit

Tyrannus is granted superhuman longevity and youth after drinking from the Fountain of Youth in Subterranea; he is dependent on this fountain to maintain his youth and immortality. He possesses various lingering psionic abilities after his merger with the cobalt "Flame of Life" in El Dorado, including telepathy, mind control of others, and the ability to drain the life force of others; these abilities are not demonstrated in later appearances. He is an extraordinary scientific genius that Bruce Banner has acknowledged as superior to himself. He masters the advanced technology of the Deviants, which he found in Subterranea, and makes further advances on it. Tyrannus has limited mystic knowledge of sorcery.

Tyrannus often uses ancient Roman weaponry (e.g., swords and spears), but also has access to weapons created by Deviant technology (including guns projecting various types of radiation) and other advanced technological weaponry. He has designed other devices based on Deviant technology and his own innovations, which are manufactured by Subterraneans under his supervision. These include teleportation devices, flying vehicles, and gigantic earth-borers.
