Spotlight On...BUSHWACKER!

Bushwacker's origin is an odd example of a mutant plotline continuing in non-X-Titles. After the Mutant Massacre, Bushwacker was reportedly hired by the Marauders to continue assassinating mutants on their behalf. An assassin who was really a serial killer who saw himself as an artist, Bushwacker ta...

Re: Defenders: Beyond #5

Many concepts exist in the Marvel Universe which might be interpreted as a representation of the God. Those concepts were all just explicitly merged, while also leaving room for a genuine "God" that exists even higher up the food chain of abstract entities. The One-Above-All is the entity who licens...

Yeah, cartoon adaptations, reprints, or out-of-universe comics just exist outside the Marvel Universe, and wouldn't be incorporated into the Volume numberings. So...Exiles (1st series) is Blink's team, not the Malibu Comics Exiles retroactively added to Marvel canon. Or, the M-Tech series is Warlock...

X-Force #34

Beast is deliberately enabling Sage's alcoholism in order to keep her out of his hair. He also built a prison moon. This black site is run by Maverick and the Mercs, holding prisoners without X-Force or the Quiet Council's knowledge. Beast is experimenting on the prisoners using Krakoan biotech, bec...

This obscure villainess initially debuted in Spider-Man and was created by Erik Larsen of Savage Dragon fame in the early 90s with a handful of appearances. With a Magneto-like world view (humans bad, mutants good etc), she has fought against Spider-Man, Wolverine, Beast and Captain Marvel, all with...

UPDATE ON...Shaw Family Tree!

Sebastian, Shinobi and Fitzroy are hardly who comes to mind when readers think of "A-List" X-Men villains. Still, they undoubtedly had their day so to speak in the 80s and 90s when they were on the cusp of being truly significant and featured in some key stories. In many ways, this loss of "greatnes...

Re: Bishop's guns

Essentially, yes. In Astonishing X-Men (4th series) #11, Bishop and Rogue dog-piled on Proteus and began absorbing him. Bishop absorbed Proteus's energy, metabolized it into his bio-blast signature, and expelled it. This essentially emaciated / disintegrated Proteus's energy form. As you can see, th...

Re: Post HoX Mutant Appearances

Speed and Wiccan were never explicitly mutants. They were presumed to be mutants once or twice on-panel, solely because Wanda was their alleged mother, but they were never tested, never showed up on Cerebro, etc. They have not been referred to as mutants since Wanda was revealed not to be one.

Mountjoy was a criminal from Bishop's future, a serial killer who fed off of the bodies of others. His arrival in the present forced Bishop to choose between the lethal force employed by the X.S.E. and his new team's stricter rules on killing. Mountjoy next moved on to London's Hellfire Club, infilt...

Captain Krakoa is weird now that everyone knows about Krakoan resurrection, unless it's someone other than Scott. I like Monet but I don't like her as Penance and would definitely prefer Betsy to be on an Avenger's team over Kwannon, it's always interesting to see Pietro back though. Remember, Capt...

No real depth, frankly. And very few appearances.

Iceman can either project ice or cold. The former, he causes ice to form near him while propelling it towards a target. The latter, he shoots a freeze beam which causes ice to form at the point of impact when the beam hits something. In that scenario, it would be the equivalent of a bio-blast hittin...

Best answer is..."probably". Like you said, the Dark Riders identified him as a healer in their hunt, and there's no reason to assume they were mistaken about that.

This apparent evil version of the Scarlet Witch tormented the “multiverse” by inducing “madness” in her other variants before possessing their bodies for her own selfish whims.... Sound familiar?
