Thanks! :)

I was thinking of doing more, like a sentence or two about the individual ones but it was already pretty wordy.
I di want to write up the Dark Celestials soon and throw a word or two in their about how the restart of the multiverse has changed some aspects of cosmic history (The creation of Knull, Humans being God's vomit, etc). At least that's how I get my head around the retcons.

from what I can tell it was loaded with powerhouses.
Odin, A Phoenix, Aggamoto, A Neaderthal Star Brand, an Iron Fist, the first Black Panther, the first Ghost Rider.

Odin and Phoenix had an affair IIRC.

I'm more curious of the Dinosaur that had the Starbrand....

HISTORY
Monica Rambeau was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. She was the daughter of Maria Rambeau a successful seamstress and Frank Rambeau a Fireman.

Monica was a lieutenant in the New Orleans Harbor Patrol. Fate came upon her one day when she gained super powers after being bombarded by extra-dimensional energy, produced by an energy disruptor weapon created by a criminal scientist.

She was originally given the name of Captain Marvel by the media. After her initial appearance, Rambeau began experimenting with her powers. Early in her career, she met Spider-Man, who was kind enough to introduce her to the Avengers for additional training. As Captain Marvel, she joined and served in the Avengers.

Her membership was a lengthy stint, during which she eventually became the team's leader. Because of injuries, she was forced to leave the active roster.

Monica was known as Captain Marvel for most of her Avengers career; however, she agreed to change her alias to Photon, conceding the Captain Marvel title to Genis-Vell, the son of the original Captain Marvel, out of respect for her predecessor.

Monica Rambeau was recruited by the Black Panther to fend off a vampire outbreak in post-Katrina New Orleans, as part of an all-black team-up comprising Luke Cage, Blade, Black Panther and Brother Voodoo.

Monica was angered upon learning that Genis-Vell has changed his name to Photon upon acquiring new powers. After a talk with him, she contemplated using the new alias of Pulsar.

The Highest Anti-Terrorism Effort, or H.A.T.E. (a subsidiary of the Beyond Corporation©) formed a team called Nextwave to fight the Unusual Weapons of Mass Destruction.

Members included Rambeau, a man known only as "the Captain", Boom-Boom, Aaron Stack, and Elsa Bloodstone. Monica annoyed all of her teammates by constantly bringing up her past experience leading the Avengers (which Aaron mocked by having his LMD of Monica repeat it in a weeping voice), and she had developed a penchant for shouting the names of her energy attacks. It has since been implied that all of Monica's experiences with Nextwave were a fiction implanted in her mind by the Beyond Corporation, and Monica angrily claimed she spent a year remembering events that never happened.

When Brother Voodoo asked for Rambeau's help in tracking down some evil sorcerers, she revealed a former relationship with Brother Voodoo to Black Cat, Hellcat, and Firestar. Despite her breaking it off, Voodoo still had feelings for Rambeau. She agreed to aid him, re-kindling their relationship in the process. She later attended Emma Frost's birthday party in Las Vegas where she helped solve a cosmic crisis involving Frankie Raye. The group continued to meet partly over their support of Firestar, who had battled and defeated breast cancer.

Having adopted the new alias of Spectrum, Monica was on her way to assist Blade in a mission against vampires when the Mad Titan Thanos launched an invasion on Earth. Having been caught in one of the places where Thanos' lieutenants made landfall, Spectrum decided to join the efforts against Thanos' forces, who were led by Proxima Midnight. Since the Avengers were off in space during this event, the heroes that confronted Proxima Midnight decided to band together as the Mighty Avengers. Among this group of heroes was the Blue Marvel, for whom Monica would develop romantic feelings. They would start a relationship not long afterwards.

Monica experienced a callback to her time with Nextwave after it was revealed a company with whom the Mighty Avengers butted heads, Cortex Inc., was being puppeted by a Beyond Corporation member impersonating Cortex' CEO Jason Quantrell. Spectrum confronted the fake Quantrell and distracted him for long enough that Blue Marvel was able to open a portal to the Exo-Space and send him back outside reality.

Following the dissolution of the Mighty Avengers, Spectrum joined the newly formed Ultimates at Blue Marvel's suggestion, serving alongside him as part of the team and further consolidating their romance. After the second superhuman Civil War, the Ultimates were terminated by the government due to their differences on the source of conflict, the use of the precognitive abilities of the Inhuman Ulysses Cain. Regardless of their dissolution, the Ultimates would later on reassemble in secret at the request of Galactus in order to investigate the mystery of who had chained the embodiment of the Multiverse, Eternity. In the process of unveiling the mystery and helping defeat Eternity's jailer, the First Firmament, the Ultimates were absorbed into Alpha Flight, being reinstated as an openly sanctioned team.

Super Skrulls - Skrulls

Post by Sidious » Sun Jan 19, 2020 2:21 am

Super Skrulls:

Background:
Located on interstellar crossroads, Earth was viewed as prime territory by many alien cultures. One of these cultures was the Skrulls. Due to the large number of superhumans on Earth, all invasion at-tempts were thwarted every time. The Skrulls, despite their previous inability to conquer the planet, still viewed Earth as rightfully theirs.

After the Kree-Skrull War, several heroes traveled to the Skrull throne planet to inform them not to involve Earth in their struggles again. Upon arrival, however, the heroes were captured and experimented upon before they were able to escape.

Their initial homeworld, Tarnax IV was destroyed by Galactus and in the recent Annihilation Wave, much of the rest of the empire was decimated, destroyed, or overrun by the forces of Annihilus. With no home and a long-standing grudge against the super-human populace of Earth, the Skrulls found them-selves pushed to the edge. Having slowly infiltrated the planet Earth, their time for vengeance had come.

After experimenting on the Illuminati, the Skrulls replaced various super-humans since before the events of House of M, beginning with Spider-Woman (replaced by a fake attempt by the Skrulls to re-store her powers), Hank Pym, Black Bolt (replaced when the Illuminati attacked the Skrulls), Elektra, various agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Edwin Jarvis, Dum Dum Dugan, etc. After the Civil War, the Skrulls intended on implanting a Skrull in every 50-state superhero team. It is unknown if that had actually occurred or how far they got with their insurgents.

The events of the House of M are unconfirmed to have been independent of the Skrull invasion, but the registration act and the Hulk's return were allowed to play out to "do their work for [the Skrulls]". With the Scarlet Witch and Thor out of the way, they had plans for the Sentry and Dr. Strange, threats to their invasion. Reducing the mutant threat, the Skrulls believed that the mutant population could not be combated against by the Skrulls, allowing the House of M incident to occur successfully accomplished their goal. The next target was the superhuman population.

Lyja was successfully recruited back into the Skrull ranks to take out the Baxter Building and the Fantastic Four headquarters. Dum Dum Dugan also met with Agent de la Fontaine around the time of Captain America's death. She asked Dugan about Nick Fury's whereabouts and if he had had contact with Fury. Dugan denied any knowledge and the Contessa stabbed Dugan with claws similar to Wolverine's, revealing herself to be a Skrull. The Skrull then assumed Dugan's form and left him to die.

After the events of Secret War, Nick Fury went into hiding. He learned that Valentina Allegra de Fontaine was plotting to extract S.H.I.E.L.D. pass-codes from him and kill him. Fury killed her first, after which she reverted to her true Skrull form. Fury came to the realization that an alien invasion was taking place. He recruited Spider-Woman to be a mole inside both Hydra and S.H.I.E.L.D., while secretly reporting to him, and to keep an eye on anything suspicious.

Fury meanwhile assembled a new team, a team he believed to not have been targets of the Skrull insurgency. He began with Daisy Johnson, former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Alex (Code name Phobos, Son of Ares), Yo Yo Rodriguez, daughter of Johnny Horton (The Griffin), the grandson of the original Ghost Rider, Dr. Druid and his son, Jerry Sledge, and various other unknown super-humans.

Ironically, he attempted to recruit Layla Miller, but she was expecting Agent Johnson. Miller claimed that if she joined Johnson's/Fury's team, "it wouldn't work" but without her, they wouldn't fail. She wished to stay with the mutants because they would need her. She stated Johnson would live through this, but was going to lose a lot.

In the Savage Land, the Skrulls also planted a fake S.H.I.E.L.D. team that eventually engaged the Avengers, but they successfully escaped. Ka-Zar and his people witnessed this, believing that there was something odd happening, but realizing that the Skrulls had infiltrated Earth, while also causing disgruntlement between the Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D.

Once Elektra was discovered how-ever, it was far too late as the Skrulls had clearly crippled Earth's main planetary defenses: the mutant population had been cut to only a few hundred, super-humans had been registered, on the run, killed or replaced. Every team, the Avengers, new and secret, the Illuminati, the Inhumans, S.H.I.E.L.D., Wakanda's government, the mutants, the Initiative, even the Avengers' staff; had all been infiltrated by Skrulls. Earth was ready for the taking.

Sometime after the Superhuman Registration Act, a battle broke out between the New Avengers and the Hand over the fate of Echo. During the fight, Echo was freed from the Hand's influence, and stabs the Hand's leader Elektra. Moments after her death, Elektra was revealed to be a Skrull. Tensions rose among the New Avengers, as no-one was able to detect Elektra's true nature, they surmised any one of them could also be a Skrull. Spider-Woman suggested that they hand over the Skrull corpse to Iron Man, but she was rebuked by Luke Cage, who believed Iron Man to be a Skrull as well. During a fight, Spider-Woman knocked out Wolverine and stole the corpse to bring to Iron Man.

Spider-Woman informed Tony Stark of what had happened in Japan, including the suspicion by his former teammates that he was a Skrull himself. A disturbed Stark accepted this, claimed that his possession and DNA restructuring by Ultron verified his authenticity, and then demanded to know where Nick Fury was, because he would know what to do. Jessica didn't know. Stark agreed with Wolverine's opinion that this was just the beginning of an invasion, and convinced her to join the Mighty Avengers, even though she still absolutely refused to register her abilities under the Superhuman Registration Act, since it would throw the Skrull off guard. Stark assumed that one of the Mighty Avengers was a Skrull sent to kill him, and with Spider-Woman on the team the Skrull would know that the Avengers were now aware of the Skrull threat. Spider-Woman convinced the others that she merely wanted to get back to doing something useful, and did not tell them what happened in Japan.

Iron Man was shocked by the Skrull corpse, realizing it to be a repercussion of the Illuminati's attack years prior. He reassembled the group for the first time since they splintered shortly before the Civil War, and they debated over whether this meant an invasion had taken place. The group was caught off guard, however, when Black Bolt voiced his opinion. It was revealed that he was in fact a Skrull as well, and fought the others over the body. This Skrull showed to not only have Black Bolt's powers, but to have the combined powers of all the members of the Illuminati. After Namor man-aged to kill him, the Illuminati were attacked by two more Skrulls:
  • A Skrull that had Cyclops' optic blasts, Nightcrawler's prehensile tail, and Colossus' metallic skin.
  • A Skrull that wielded a techno-logical copy of Thor's hammer Mjolnir.
These Skrulls were killed by Iron Man who detonated a small nuclear bomb with his armor. Namor reminded them that any of them could also be a Skrull, and that no one was to be trusted. The five then went their separate ways.

The returning Captain Marvel battled the villains Cobalt Man and the original Cyclone, both supposedly deceased. He was then confronted by a group of Skrulls posing as Kree Soldiers, who attempted to kill him but were quickly defeated by Mar-Vell with the aid of Iron Man. He then went on to confront Ms. Marvel over her identity, and then shared with her his experiences fighting both Cobalt Man and Cyclone. Shortly thereafter, Mar-Vell went to interrogate Cobalt Man, who revealed himself to be a Skrull and stated "You are not Captain Marvel". Meanwhile, Brother McNally, a member of the recently formed Church of Hala (established after the return of Captain Marvel), was revealed to be a Skrull as well. Iron Man was suspicious of Mar-Vell's true identity and sent men to Titan to investigate his grave. The Skrull impersonating Cobalt Man revealed to Captain Marvel that he was in fact a Skrull sleeper agent named Khn'nr created to pose as the real Captain Marvel. However, despite his status, Marvel decided to fight against the invading Skrulls.

Iron Man told S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent David Sum, a member of Ms. Mar-vel's S.H.I.E.L.D. strike force Operation Lightning Storm, about the coming invasion and stated that he believed Ms. Marvel was actually a Skrull agent. A Skrull named Rl'nnd was found by Ms. Marvel in what she believed was an A.I.M. lair and attacked her, only to escape. Afterward, Ms. Marvel found the body of William Wagner, a man she had been dating. Agent Sum and the rest of Lightning Storm tried to capture Ms. Marvel under the impression that she was William's murderer. Eventually both Ms. Marvel and the Skrull impostor were captured by S.H.I.E.L.D. with Rl'nnd following in disguise. After Rl'nnd revealed himself, the Skrull Ms. Marvel told Ms. Marvel that Wagner was a Kree. She also had disguised herself as him to convince Ms. Marvel he was dead, and that he was still alive.

A Skrull posing as Daredevil met Echo outside of Matt Murdock's office. Echo saw through its disguise since the Skrull's weren't aware of Daredevil's current activities. With Wolverine's help, Echo repelled the Skrull.

Iron Man called in two of the brightest minds on Earth: Doctor Reed Richards and Doctor Henry Pym to examine the body of the Elektra-Skrull that Spider-Woman brought to him. He knew it was just the beginning of an invasion.

Meanwhile, The Peak, S.W.O.R.D.'s headquarters, hosted a meeting between various world security agencies. As Commander Dugan arrived, a Skrull ship entered Earth's atmosphere and crashed in the Savage Land. Tony Stark got called in by Agent Brand, leaving Reed and Hank to examine the Skrull.

Iron Man ordered the Avengers to assemble, but only Spider-Woman was currently available. She contacted the Secret Avengers and told them about the crashed Skrull ship.

The two Avenger teams met up in the Savage Land near the crashed ship, each side ready to fight. As Luke Cage pried open the Skrull ship, S.W.O.R.D. was receiving live video feeds from Iron Man's armor. Both Commander Dugan and Edwin Jarvis, the Avenger Tower butler, upon seeing Cage pry open the ship, decided to take "action".

Commander Dugan set off an explosion that destroyed S.W.O.R.D. headquarters, saying "He Loves You" just before the blast. Jarvis had uploaded a virus into the Stark computer mainframe, saying "He Loves You" causing Iron Man's armor to malfunction and disable Tony Stark and infecting the entire Stark computer network with an alien virus from satellites to defense systems. Ms. Marvel called the Helicarrier, but no one responded. Commander Hill ordered everyone to abandon ship as the Helicarrier had lost all power and control, falling down toward a city. The Raft, Ryker's Maximum-Maximum Security prison lost power, freeing every single villain that was being held there like Armadillo, Answer, Doctor Doom, Mandrill, and Shockwave. Similar events happened at The Cube, where the master Noh-Varr decided it was time to go. The Thunderbolts headquarters, Thunderbolt Mountain, was simultaneously attacked by Mar-Vell himself.

Meanwhile at the Baxter Building, a Skrull disguised as a tourist changed into Susan Storm, entered the lab, and opened a gateway to the Negative Zone, again saying "He loves you", and creating a massive vacuum within the Baxter Building that began to engulf the building and the surroundings.

In the Savage Land, Iron Man slipped into a seizure as the Skrull ship opened, revealing its cargo: Beast, Thor, Spider-Man, Phoenix, Iron Man, Wonder Man, Scarlet Witch, Susan Storm, Captain America, Wolverine, Mockingbird, Power Man, Hawkeye, Emma Frost, and Jewel, claiming that they had made it back to Earth. "Wolverine", who emerged from the ship, asked the gathered Avengers who exactly they were.

In orbit, Agent Brand and her team were safe in stasis gel. She called for help only to realize that a massive Skrull invasion fleet had just arrived on Earth's doorstep.

At the lab, Reed realized how the Skrulls became undetectable and turned to tell Hank. Pym pulled out a laser weapon and shot Richards which destabilized him. As Hank transformed into a Skrull, he said "He Even Loves You".

Despite the urging of Ares that their confrontation was merely a distraction from the true battle, the assembled heroes from the ship and their counterparts on Earth began fighting, both sides convinced that their opponents were the Skrulls. In the ensuing battle, the Spider-Man and Hawkeye from the ship were both killed and reverted into Skrulls, while Mockingbird insisted she was not an impostor, as she and the real Clint Barton made a tearful reunion. Mockingbird also stated that the Captain America from the ship may, in fact, be the genuine article. While Spider-Woman disappeared into the jungle and Earth's Ms. Marvel headed back to the States, Earth's Iron Man (still suffering from the Skrull virus) started to build himself a new suit from the wreckage of a nearby lab. Not being able to combat the power of the Sentry the Skrulls decided the best way to deal with him was to make Reynolds have a psychotic episode. With Sentry believing that a Skrull posing as the classic Vision told him, opted to stay out of the fight. The Void creating an equal and opposite reaction showed up battling Skrulls and saving Lindy Reynolds promising to do all that The Sentry wouldn't do. In Manhattan, meanwhile, the first wave of Super Skrull shock troops bearing the abilities of Earth's super-humans arrived, as witnessed by the Young Avengers and the Runaways.

Meanwhile, Britain was also at-tacked by a Skrull armada and a wave of empowered Super Skrulls. The Skrulls had infiltrated the ranks of the British government, though they were exposed by John the Skrull (a Skrull turncoat loyal to MI: 13 and who had taken the form of John Lennon). The Skrulls' target was the Siege Perilous. To protect this source of magic Captain Britain attacked a Skrull missile head on, possibly sacrificing himself.

Athena gathered all Earth gods to prepare a "God Squad" to fight the Skrull Gods. Hercules, Snowbird, Tecumotzin, Amatsu-Mikaboshi, and Atum the God Eater were chosen as the team. Mikaboshi later asked Hercules if his sister's eyes had always been green. This could be hinting that Athena was a Skrull and was trying to get rid of the heavy hitters.

While all this happened, Spider-Man confronted Ka-Zar and Shanna, accusing them of being Skrulls. However, they were attacked by the ship's Captain America. During the battle, the natives hit the ship's Captain America with a poisonous dart that caused him to regress to a Skrull. That Skrull was killed by Shanna. They did the same for Spider-Man only to find out that he was not a Skrull. Wonder Man and the ship's Beast ended up trapped underground. They managed to get near the exit, but the ship's Beast left Wonder Man there.

During the evacuation of Helicarrier, the Jarvis Impersonator con-fronted Ms. Hill about surrendering to the Skrulls.

In Times Square the Young Avengers tried their best to battle the invading forces. Vision realizing that communications were down suggested that Hulkling being Skrull royalty calm the situation but to no avail. After losing Wiccan and Hulkling to unconsciousness the Camp Hammond Staff and Trainees arrived. This did not change the tide of the battle (after Stature and Proton lost consciousness and Vision got destroyed) until Nick Fury and his new Howling Commandos arrived.

Spider-Woman then attacked and knocked out Echo all but solidifying that Ms. Drew had been replaced. After the scuffle the impostor found Stark and congratulated him calling him her lover Kr’Ali and con-firming that she was the Skrull Queen.

During the battle in New York, the Runaways returned from their trip to 1907 to land in the middle of the fight. Xavin, the team's Skrull, knocked out the team and appeared to betray them. After realizing that Hulkling was going to be executed by the Skrulls, Xavin intervened and saved him.

Khn'nr fought and defeated most of the Thunderbolts. Norman Osborn offered him a chance to explain himself, speaking with him in private.

Longshot met up with Darwin sometime after the events of Messiah Complex and attempted to lead him to Professor Xavier, due to the fact that Darwin wished to help the Professor. During that time, Longshot stated that his powers were failing him recently, and proceeded to test them and himself on some people, causing those people to turn on Darwin. After Darwin escaped, the crowd attacked Longshot, but he managed to mysteriously get away. He reappeared in an alleyway, unaware he was being tracked by Jazinda. He then revealed himself to be a Skrull named Nogor and went to meet up with Darwin as they moved through Detroit. Later, they were attacked by Jazinda and She-Hulk. Darwin "evolved" to the point where he recognized Nogor as a Skrull and defeated him. Nogor was later taken into custody by She-Hulk and Jazinda.

Delroy Garrett, the 3-D Man, arrived in Hawaii and was greeted by Point Men team members Star Sign and Paydirt. He encountered Devil-Slayer on the way to the base, who stated that he had sensed portents of doom all day. When he met the final team member Magnitude, the goggles Delroy obtained from the original 3-D Man allowed him to identify Magnitude as a Skrull impostor. The Skrull attacked and severely wounded Star Sign and Paydirt, but Delroy killed the Skrull with a sword magically summoned by Devil-Slayer. Devil Slayer used his Shadow Cloak to teleport Delroy to Camp Hammond, where he announced to everyone assembled that the Initiative had been infiltrated by Skrulls. Crusader (fearing that he would be exposed as a Skrull) used the Freedom Ring. This caused 3-D Man's goggles to make him see everyone surrounding him as a Skrull. Crusader told Delroy Garrett to take his leave. However, Delroy's Quinjet was affected by the same computer virus and it crashed in New Mexico.

Whilst all of this was happening, Reed Richards was revealed to be held by Skrull forces up in Earth's orbit on an unidentified armada ship, stretched to his physical limits and surrounded by a crowd of Skrull watchers and scientists, helpless against the threats and torture. Agent Abigail Brand of S.W.O.R.D. managed to break through the exterior of another ship and made it into one of the central control rooms, seeing the images of the invasion, death, and destruction the Skrulls were making on Earth, as well as the torture of Mr. Fantastic. A Skrull guard and a youngster found and pointed a gun at her. The Sentry was up in orbit, still being tormented by the false words of the Skrull Void impostor and refusing to help.

Down in the chaotic battle in Manhattan, Nick Fury and the new Howling Commandos showed promises of turning the tide; Ms. Marvel, after being heavily blasted by a group of Skrull soldiers ended up rising in the middle of Fury and his group in Times Square as they fought, shocked by the return of the ex-S.H.I.E.L.D. leader. As they quickly headed into the fray, Yo-Yo, the team's mutant speedster, man-aged to rescue all the downed Young Avengers and Initiative cadets before further execution and casualties. Ms. Marvel proceeded to help, but soon after was shot by Fury, whom was unconvinced she was the real Carol Danvers. After being shot back into another street, the Skrull onlookers quickly overran her, with the Skrull Henry Pym looking down at her with a smirk on his face. Fury then called his men to retreat so that they could plan their next move.

Watching the battle via news broadcast on live television, the Hood decided to take his rebuilt empire of the New York City criminal roster and battle the Skrulls, as "no more Earth is bad for business". In the Bermuda Triangle, Jarvis tried to get Maria Hill to surrender, but Maria refused and said it was still her ship, but the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents turned into Skrulls. Back in the Savage Land, Spider-Woman continued to persuade Tony into believing he was a Skrull sleeper agent named Kl'Riki Dulu, and that she would find a way to turn him back to his original form and praised him as the greatest Skrull Warrior to ever live. Natasha Romanoff (the Black Widow) was revealed to be watching the conversation, and proceeded to enter and shoot Spider-Woman. She was temporarily distracted by the Beast and Phoenix heroes from the Skrull ship, who she in turn, opened fire on and seemingly killed. Spider-Woman had enough time to escape, and Natasha injected Tony with a dose of adrenaline to keep him going. She convinced him to continue the fight, despite the words of the Skrull Spider-Woman and the possibility of him being a sleeper. Wolverine entered (after being shot by Black Widow and being forced to confirm his true identity through the code word, "Carrot Sticks") and the trio concluded that Tony had to rebuild the armor quick, and return to New York as soon as possible.

After Fury and his Commandos moved on, the view shifted to innocent civilians evading Skrull forces in Central Park. As they were about to be killed by some Skrull soldiers, a blast of lightning struck and killed one. As the civilians look through the light and destruction, the shadowy figure of what appeared to be Thor in the New York City sky was seen. Another mysterious figure was shown watching the event from another location with a pair of binoculars; the figure then proceeded to move from his position, and suddenly the shield and costume of Captain America was seen.

Meanwhile, after the God Squad was forced to experience their worst fears by Nightmare, Snow-bird and Hercules made love after she confessed to him that she didn't want to be alone anymore. Later, it was discovered that the Skrull in the group was Kirby the Coyote Pup (who had been with them since the end of World War Hulk) revealed itself and was quickly dispatched by Atum. The issue ended with an impending battle between gods Hercules and Kly'bn, the one in the sentence "He loves you". However, Hercules won the battle after stabbing Kly'bn, giving the Skrulls a huge upset in their war campaign.

As the Skrulls comfortably settled in Portland, Oregon, enslaving the population, the Skrulls repeatedly announced that any attempt at resistance would be met with extreme force. Gorilla Man and M-11, disguised as slaves, attacked the Skrulls, freaking Namora who had been captured. The trio captured the regional Skrull commander, taking only his head, bringing it to their underwater saucer where Bob Grayson and Venus were waiting. They extracted military secrets from the severed head just as they were attacked. The odd team repelled the attack, liberated Portland, set a course for Seattle to secure that city, then intended on securing the country before moving to Japan, but they questioned who they could trust.

Norman Osborn talked the Skrull-Captain Marvel out of destroying the Thunderbolts, sending him away in anguish. He then declared to U.S. troops that they were at war.

Nick Fury arrived with the Initiative cadets, his new Howling Commandos, and the Young Avengers at his new command post. The Vision survived his attempted murder by the Skrulls, but remained rather disfigured/damaged. He awaited with his team for the Skrulls to announce their plans for Earth and they did. Using generated images of various leaders and famous stars including Magneto, the Pope, Barack Obama, Tom Cruise, John McCain, Eric Cartman, Tony Stark, Namor, Oprah, Doctor Doom, Kim Jong il, and others, the Skrulls announced that they intended on assimilating all humans into their culture and way of life, declaring Earth part of the Skrull empire. The only way for the human race to save their planet was to assimilate.

Meanwhile in space, Agent Brand successfully infiltrated the Skrull ship holding Mr. Fantastic captive where she battled the Skrulls experimenting on them, either killing or disabling them and freeing Dr. Richards. Frustrated, she decompressed the ship, throwing every Skrull out into space. Richards panicked, threatening Brand, demanding the location of his family, believing that she was to be a Skrull. He revealed that the Skrulls needed him alive to assist in the invasion. Richards tested Brand to prove she was not a Skrull as the ship they had commandeered came under attack. Out of no-where, Captain Marvel, with a new sense of purpose, engaged and destroyed a large portion of the Skrull fleet. Brand then took the ship and Richards to the Savage Land.

Back on the Shield Helicarrier, Director Hill revealing to "Jarvis" and the Skrull insurgents that she was using a life model decoy as Fury had suggested to her many months ago. The Skrulls killed the duplicate and Hill on a jet-pack, opened fire on the Skrulls and then self-destructed the carrier.

The various superheroes, Savage Land leaders, and Skrull (or not) impersonators clashed again, about ready to fight. Each one declaring who they were or who they believed themselves to be. Emma Frost stated she could detect who was a Skrull and who was not, accusing Spider-Man of being an impostor. Susan Storm stated she would keep everyone in place with a force field until all was settled. Richards fired into the center of the crowd of super heroes with an odd weapon. When tech dust and brightness receded, the Skrulls and humans were revealed and a battle ensued. Ronin discovered his Mockingbird was a Skrull, grabbed one of Black Widow's guns, and killed her in anger. The Skrull impostors were surprised when their skin turned green and became surprised and disoriented, making them easier to take down by the real super heroes. Ronin, angry and frustrated at the realization his wife was an impostor, declared that every last Skrull must be killed.

The invasion reached San Francisco, new home of the X-Men. Believing the city to be virtually defenseless except for local police, they launched a small scale attack to cause enough damage to instill fear. However, their ground teams encountered unexpected superhuman resistance: each and every one of the X-Men that were still active. The X-Men launched a counter strike, defending civilians and evacuating badly attacked buildings. The Skrulls were shocked to find the X-Men in San Francisco especially when they took over their command shuttle. As the X-men made a successful gain, the Skrulls launched their super soldiers into the city from an orbiting ship.

While in Wakanda, Brother Voodoo revealed himself to be a Skrull when he attempted to kill Cannibal, whom he deemed to be a threat. However, the two killed each other in the struggle and the discovery of 'Brother Voodoo's' true form revealed the Skrull invasion to Black Panther, allowing him time to prepare. As many Wakandan warriors died, Black Panther successfully fought off a very intimidating Super-Skrull only to be temporarily defeated by two Skrull subversives within his ranks. The Skrulls tortured a captured Black Panther and Storm only to figure out they were really the Skrull subversives made to look like King T'Challa and Queen Ororo. Just as the real Black Panther and Storm killed Commander K'vvvr, he sent the entire ship loaded with the corpses of the entire Skrull invasion force back to the Skrull homeworld with a message written in blood saying "This is what happens when you invade Wakanda".

Trapped in the Negative Zone, Johnny Storm, The Thing, Franklin and Valerie Richards, and Lyja turned to the prison population to rebuild the destroyed portal generator in order to return to Earth and help repel the invasion. The one they turned to was Phineas Mason, known as the Tinkerer. He told the Fantastic Four that he was forcefully taken even after retiring from super-villain work, revealing that the unregistered super-humans did not receive a fair trial. The Tinkerer then refused to help, but after Franklin pleaded with the man, Tinkerer complied at the child's desire to return to his family. They successfully returned back to New York City, Lyja staying behind, to the battleground that was New York City.

On Attilan, Medusa received news that Black Bolt had been replaced by a Skrull. She tried to get Maxi-mus to take action against the Skrulls, but he refused. When Ahura was revealed to be a Skrull, Maximus defeated him as the Skrulls began their invasion upon Attilan. Medusa headed into space to try and get Ronan the Accuser to help find the Skrull ship that had Black Bolt on it. Ronan agreed under the condition that Crystal became his bride.

At New Asgard, Thor had just rescued Beta Ray Bill (who was lacking his Stormbreaker) after he escaped from the Skrulls. With the featured Asgardians thinking Beta Ray Bill was a Skrull, they plotted to attack while he was recuperating only to be stopped by Thor. Thor proved Beta Ray Bill wasn't a Skrull by throwing Mjolnir at Beta Ray Bill who caught it, proving he was not a Skrull by being able to lift Mjolnir. Beta Ray Bill, healed by holding Mjolnir, joined Thor in his fight against the Skrulls as some of them attacked Asgard. During the fight with the invading Skrulls, Beta Ray Bill encountered a specially-bred Super-Skrull called Godkiller who was wielding Stormbreaker. After tricking the Godkiller, Beta Ray Bill reclaimed Stormbreaker (which was quickly reassembled after breaking) and assisted Thor by tricking the Godkiller into going under Asgard. Thor and Beta Ray Bill then killed Godkiller by drop-ping Asgard on her.

3-D Man, sabotaged into a crash in the Quinjet after all Starktech went offline, was discovered by She-Thing, a member of the Initiative. 3-D Man instantly saw she was a Skrull, but before she could strike a blow, she was killed by the Skrull Kill Krew. The Skrull Kill Krew then recruited Delroy and approached Arizona's Desert Stars, determining Blacksmith to be an impostor. After a brief battle, the Krew planed on going to Las Vegas. The Shadow Initiative stayed at Camp Hammond while most others at Camp Hammond went to fight the Skrulls in New York. Later the Skrull used Camp Hammond as base which Ant-Man (Eric O'Grady) found out because he stayed behind. Then with the help of Ant-Man, the Shadow Initiative tried to eliminate the Skrull Queen Veranke, but they lost the fight against the Skrulls and were all captured (except Ant-Man).

Norman Osborn and his Thunder-bolts launched a counter-attack on the force invading Washington DC. There, Songbird was attacked by a Super-Skrull combining the powers of Atlas and herself. Mac Gargan and Bullseye went rogue, Norman and Robbie Baldwin went crazy, and Moonstone betrayed the team by shooting Swordman and bar-gained her allegiance to the Skrulls. They managed to vanquish their Skrull opponents.

The New Warriors were enjoying a day off when the Skrull's Invasion occurred. Back at their headquarters, Donyell suspected that the Night Thrasher who was killed in Stamford was really a Skrull and wanted to find proof about the re-mains of his brother Dwayne. Donyell decided to go on his own; but his teammates secretly followed him and later confronted him to find out what going on, when the former New Warriors who were now known as Counter Force, also wanted to know what was the reason the Warriors re-formed without some of the found-ing members. After Donyell revealed his true identity and his reasons to both the former and current Warriors, Vance led all of them to a SHIELD Helicarrier where their teammate’s remains were stored. Both teams were attacked by the Skrulls and the Warriors fought off a Super-Skrull possessing the founding Warriors' powers. During the battle; Donyell confirmed that the remains were authenticated and had them removed from the carrier for burial.

At the DB, Jackpot was slandered by Dexter Bennett. When she ar-rived at the DB, along with a PR supplied by the Initiative, she was attacked by a Super-Skrull in Spider-Man's form searching for the wall-crawler. After her refusal, the Skrull changed from Spider-Man form to a composite form showing the powers and the abilities of Lizard, Rhino, Electro, Hydro-Man, Sandman, and Venom.[43] Jackpot battled her Skrull opponent long enough for Betty Brant, Dexter Bennett, Robbie Robertson and Vin Gonzales to escape the building. While Robbie drove, Jackpot battled the Super-Skrull on the roof of the car until she was attacked by Menace who killed one of the invading Skrulls and considered Jackpot to be "Spider-Man's Girl-friend." Their fight took him into the path of one of the Skrulls, with Menace's glider exploding on con-tact. Menace survived, though badly injured, and limped away from the scene. Jackpot killed the Sinister Six-Skrull by trapping it in a freezer where it froze to death.

As Hood's syndicate was attacking the Skulls, there was a flashback when Skrull agents tried to replace Madame Masque but failed. When advised to use his magic to scan the villains present, Hood discovered that Slug had been replaced by a Skrull and killed it.

Punisher got involved in the fight against the Skrulls and easily killed them. In the midst of the invasion, Stuart Clarke learned that the Punisher killed his girlfriend and the Punisher learned that Stuart Clarke killed a cop. This led to Punisher and Stuart Clarke battling each other. The battle was concluded by both being trapped in a room where the Skrulls fired a rocket into, leaving Stuart heavily scarred (in a manner similar to Jigsaw) and vowing revenge on Frank Castle.

While flying away, Noh-Varr came across a damaged Skrull ship. He landed to check it out when Captain Marvel stumbled out. Before he died, Captain Marvel begged Noh-Varr to stop the invasion but Noh-Varr said this wasn't his world. Captain Marvel said it didn't matter and he was here for a reason. He had learned so much from Earth's people and the Skrulls had no honor like the humans or the Kree. Elsewhere, the Skrulls restored the global communication systems and announced their plans. Using the restored systems, they explained the Skrull Invasion with the following talking points:

They only wanted to improve Earth's culture and add to it, not kill anyone.

They had attacked organizations like the Avengers, S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Fantastic Four because they stood in the way of their progress as a society.

They were part of their problems and they wished to change that.

Queen Veranke arrived at Camp Hammond while the Avengers headed to New York only to find it burning. Down on the street a group of people wanted to welcome the Skrulls, but were caught between the battle between the Skrulls and Nick Fury and his troops. The Hood and his syndicate of criminals decided to finally help out. Thor made his presence known and met up with the new Captain America. The New Avengers, Mighty Avengers, Nick Fury & his commandos, the Young Avengers, the Initiative, the Hood's crew, Thor, the new Captain America, Howard the Duck and the Thunderbolts all assembled. Queen Veranke revealed that "He" was God, and it was an all-out war between the Skrulls and the super-humans of Earth.

The Skrulls moved quickly to take Nova out of the equation before he could return home and help defend his own planet. Luring Nova into an ambush on a remote planet under the ruse of an isolated Phalanx infestation, a group of Super-Skrulls launched an ambush. In the battle, one of the Super-Skrulls turned on his fellows, revealing himself to be Kl'rt, Nova's ally from the Annihilation War. Together, Nova and the original Super-Skrull defeated the attackers and traveled by stargate directly to Earth where Nova intended to assist in repelling the invasion. Upon their arrival, however, Kl'rt attacked Rider declaring his loyalties to the Skrull Empire. His attack on Nova revealed to be a charade, as Kl'rt shielded Nova from the view of the Skrull invasion fleet, allowing Rider to return to his home world undetected. However where his true loyalties lie remains to be seen as while he helped Nova, he later targeted his own daughter Jazinda and fought She-Hulk at the same time. Yet while he defeated both women, he found he couldn't kill Jazinda and left.

The Skrull Kill Krew and their Initiative allies moved on to other Initiative bases, killing the Skrull impostors. Delroy Garret's goggles also identified Equinox as a Skrull who was then killed by Cloud 9 and adding Cloud 9 and Gravity to their group. The Skrull then sent a broadcast throughout the world, telling their sleeper agents to activate themselves, which sowed even more distrust among the remaining heroes. While in Philadelphia, the Revolutionary was revealed as a Skrull and defeated by Gravity and Hope. When they came across a fight between Thor Girl and Ultra Girl, Delroy's goggles identified Thor Girl as a Skrull. With help from Gravity, Delroy used Thor Girl's own hammer to kill the Skrull impostor. Ant-Man managed to escape the Skrulls on the back of a Shock Trooper, and revealed to the Kill Crew the Skrulls' last resort plan; to use all the Initiative bases to create a massive Negative Zone portal that would take the entire country. With six bases left, the Crew split up, and used the still-living heads of Moonstomp, Catwalk and Dice to help point out Skrulls. Devil-Slayer teleported them to the bases, but collapsed under the strain.

Despite the vast number of super-humans involved in the fight, brief-ly reunited under a single purpose again, the battle was still locked in a stand-still, until Uatu appeared, signaling that an event of cosmic relevance was unfolding, and the resolution of the obstacles was near. As Tony Stark was forced to retire because of damages received on his rebuilt armor, Jessica Jones and Noh-Varr took his place on the battlefield. The presence of Noh-Varr, claiming his victory in name of Mar-Vell and the Kree, was enough to give the assembled heroes back their resolve. Clint Barton, using the bow and the trick arrows of the wounded Kate Bishop, slayed several Super-Skrulls before hitting a clear shot on Queen Veranke. Criti Noll got up long enough to activate the new growth serum in the Wasp which he had given her when she still thought he was Hank Pym, turning her into an explosive trap. The Skrull Jarvis while holding Jessica's and Luke Cage's child, watched from Avengers Tower as the energy washed over hero, villain and Skrull alike, commenting to the child that it didn't matter if the Skrulls won or lost, so long as "God's" will was done.

The Initiative members combated their Skrull opponents who had received their mission to activate themselves to start distrust among the teams. At the Batallion's HQ, Tigra, Ryder, and Cloud 9 fought a Skrull posing as Razor-back. Hardball and Moonstomp helped Action Pack fight a Skrull posing as Frog-Man. Gravity and Catwalk helped the Great Lakes Avengers fight a Skrull posing as Grasshopper. Komodo and Riot helped the Command fight a Skrull posing as Conquistador (who transformed into a Skrull version of Devil Dinosaur). Dice and Jocosta fought their way through activists to get to the Skrull posing as Skyhawk who succeeded in his part of the mission. Delroy Garrett and Ant-Man joined the Rangers in fighting a Skrull that posed as Red Wolf's wolf companion Lobo. After it was shot by Shooting Star, a crowd up-rising occurred when Delroy's goggles identified some of the crowd members as Skrulls. Delroy's goggles were hit by a thrown rock giving Delroy's allies a hard time figuring out who was a Skrull and who wasn't. During the struggle, Delroy discovered that he could see who was a Skrull without his goggles. This turned the tides against those Skrulls disguised as crowd members. During the fights across the USA, Spinner and Whiz-Kid both apparently died in various fights. At the final fight at Camp Hammond, Crusader killed Criti Noll and then 3-D Man shot Crusader (who hid his Skrull heritage from the others), but was fighting for Earth. Before he disappeared, Crusader stated that it could have ended differently.

As the Wasp began to explode, Thor was able to minimize the damage caused by Wasp by turning the energy she was exerting on herself; promising to avenge her. Queen Veranke was revealed to be alive and as the heroes went to attack her, Norman Osborn blew her head off. This event was seen around the world. All super-humans with the power of flight took out what was left of the Skrull armada and Tony Stark, who had returned from Stark tower after donning an earlier version of his armor, found the ship containing the heroes and humans that had been replaced. It was later established that the Skrulls needed the original abductees alive because they were the original source material for the Skrulls genetic disguises. Among those present in the ship were Elektra, Spider-Woman, Dum Dum Dugan, Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, Henry Pym, several agents of both S.H.I.E.L.D. and HYDRA, and Mockingbird (whose appearance suggested that she may have been the first hero replaced as this obviously occurred before her "death", but after she started her relationship with Hawkeye). Iron Man rejoined Thor and Captain America, only to find that the deep-seeded resentment from previous conflicts was still inherent; the blame for the Invasion was placed squarely upon the shoulders of Tony Stark. A Skrull revealed to Hulkling, Wiccan and Hawkeye that taking over the Earth was the last chance they had since all their planets had been destroyed. By order of the President, S.H.I.E.L.D. was shut down and anything included in S.H.I.E.L.D., including all Stark Tech, was replaced with the Thunderbolts Initiative. Meanwhile, the Skrull-Jarvis disappeared with Luke Cage and Jessica Jones' daughter, leaving Jessica desperate. At the end of the issue the Dark Illuminati group appeared, consisting of Norman Osborn, Doctor Doom, the female version of Loki, Emma Frost, Namor, and the Hood.

HISTORY
Originally simply the Adaptoid, the Super-Adaptoid was created by Advanced Idea Mechanics. It was built using Unstable Molecules and incorporated a portion of a Cosmic Cube into its design.

On its first mission, the Adaptoid tried to replace Captain America. It initially disguised itself as Edwin Jarvis, and drugged the hero's coffee, which caused him to hallucinate about his time in World War II; however, the Adaptoid was then defeated by the Tumbler, who thought it to be the real Captain America.

The real Captain America man-aged to get loose and defeat the Tumbler, and tie both his doppelganger and the intruder, then call the police. After turning the Tumbler over to the authorities, Jarvis helped Captain America take the bound Adaptoid to Goliath's lab until the other Avengers returned, but while imprisoned it adapted to all the Avengers' powers and adopted a form that was an amalgamation of all the Avengers' forms. The transformed Super-Adaptoid then freed itself and resumed its mission to destroy Captain America.

The Super-Adaptoid attacked its target, soon overwhelmed the star-spangled hero, and then carried Captain America into the air in order to drop him to his death. After some resistance, Cap was unable to stop the android's ascension, but it still dropped him from a dangerous height into New York Harbor. Thinking Captain America was dead, the Super-Adaptoid returned to its masters; however, Cap had just barely survived his encounter thanks to the fact that he controlled his fall into the water.

Believing it had killed Captain America, the Super-Adaptiod went into hibernation in Westchester County. Eventually the presence of the X-Men and Mimic revived it, but when the Mimic tried to copy the Super-Adaptoid's abilities, they both lost all their powers.

Subsequent battles against the Avengers and Iron Man went poor-ly for the Super-Adaptoid.

When the Super-Adaptoid encountered Captain Marvel, it copied his Nega-Bands, thus gaining access to the Negative Zone. Although it lost that battle, it later lured Captain America to the Negative Zone, but the Avengers, along with the Thing, captured it and imprisoned it be-neath Avengers Mansion.

Later the Masters of Evil IV invaded the mansion and accidentally re-leased the Super-Adaptoid. It changed its strategy and collected several other androids -- Machine Man, Sentry 459, Dragon Man, Awesome Andy, and TESS-One) -- to form the team Heavy Metal.

They attacked the Avengers' Hydrobase, but the Super-Adaptoid's ultimate goal was to find Kubik, another product of a Cosmic Cube, and copy its powers. Almost omnipotent, it battled Captain America yet again, but could not overcome his indomitable will. Kubik eventually erased its new powers, removed the Super-Adaptoid's Cosmic Cube portion, and sent it back into hibernation.

The Machinesmith briefly revived it, before Doctor Doom appropriated the Super-Adaptoid and sent it after the Fantastic Four. At the time, the Thing had lost his powers, so the Super-Adaptoid couldn't copy them, and with his mechanical substitutes, the Thing made short work of the android.

Later, the New Enforcers recruited the Super-Adaptoid to battle Spider-Man.

After another crack at Captain America, the Super-Adaptoid battled the Heroes for Hire and sustained heavy damage.

Next, crime boss Devlin DeAngelo bought the Super-Adaptoid, and forced Bruce Banner to repair it, apparently unaware of Banner's propensity to become the Hulk. After facing the Hulk, the Super-Adaptoid murdered DeAngelo.

The Super-Adaptoid eventually grew dissatisfied with humanity and left Earth to explore space. It came into contact with the Phalanx and was infected with the trans-mode virus, before being made into a Select.

The Super-Adaptoid was tasked with tracking down the current Quasar, Phyla-Vell, and assimilating her; however, the Kree evaded the machine, until it finally caught up to her by massacring a sect of the Priests of Pama.

Eventually, the Super-Adaptoid learned that Phyla was searching for the "savior" of the Kree who would oppose the Phalanx. It man-aged to trick Phyla into unleashing her quantum energy against it, enabling the Super-Adaptoid to create facsimiles of her Quantum Bands to follow the trail to the savior.

When the Super-Adaptoid arrived on the planet where the savior was regenerating, it began to assimilate him; however, the savior was actively fighting against the machine. Phyla arrived in time and fought the Super-Adaptoid, reabsorbing a portion of the quantum energy that was previously stolen from her.

She then played upon the Super-Adaptoid's inability to imagine, and ultimately defeated it.

The Super-Adaptoid returned to Earth and was encountered by the latest version of the Avengers Unity Division. It was able to copy the powers of the Human Torch be-fore, on a whim, Deadpool touched it barehanded.

The Super-Adaptoid copied Dead-pool's powers, but it also copied Deadpool's cancer and became overrun by the disease, killing the android's organic properties, an action that resulted in Wade being scolded for his reckless abandonment and leading Spider-Man to leave the team.

Inspired by an attack from Project Green, Silk later took the Super-Adaptoid's remains to Earth-65 where Reed Richards converted it into shape-shifting armor, which she wore into battle against Cindy Moon; however, an EMP pulse from her Power Glove fried the armor's circuitry, forcing Spider-Woman to pry open the chest plate in order to free her.

Jonathan was born during a multiversal cataclysm after both his and his mother's lives were jeopardized by a mentally unstable counterpart of his father. Superman managed to get his family into safety with the assistance of an alternate Batman who aided Superman in the delivery of his son.

When the one responsible for said cataclysm had a change of heart, Lois and Jon accompanied his father to the first Crisis in order to prevent the Multiverse from col-lapsing, a mission that proved successful. Jon and his parents ended up stranded in a different Earth than the one they came from, to which they were forced to over-come and adapt to have a fulfilling life. To avoid discovery, the family went undercover while adopting the surname White.

Jon grew up oblivious of his parents' past, while living an apparent-ly normal life, however, with his father acting as a secret super-hero and his mother operating as Author X, he was always suspicious of their sometimes awkward behavior. This suspicion came to a head when he and his mother were kidnapped by this world's Bruno Mannheim and Intergang. This led to the discovery that Jon had inherited superpowers from his Kryptonian father. After later being rescued by his father, Jon was told the truth about his origins and that of his parents.

Jon later discovered he had other superpowers, including heat vision when he accidentally killed his cat. He and his family would later en-counter Eradicator, who was intent on absorbing Jon's Kryptonian side, thereby killing his human half. This battle would eventually end up in the Batcave located on the Moon. Lois would use one of Batman's suits and helped Jon and Superman and defeat the Eradicator.

Afterwards, Clark gave Jon a hat and glasses to help form Jon's secret identity. He would later travel with his father to the Justice League Watchtower and Super-man introduced Jon to Batman and Wonder Woman as Superboy, making him a part of the Justice League.

After going to the State Fair in Hamilton with his family, Superman brings Jon to the Fortress of Solitude in the Arctic in order to help him finish his science project for school Jon had decided on making a flying saucer. However, due to an unforeseen malfunction by the device, Jon, his father and Krypto were transported to Dinosaur Island. There, they encountered the only survivor of the Losers, Captain William Storm. Storm agreed to help them find the device that brought them to the is-land. However, during a battle with the mutated denizens of area, the device activated and Storm stayed behind to prevent the beasts from following Superman and his son to the outside world.

While searching for a tree for Christmas, Jon accidentally torched some woodlands near a swamp in Hamilton. He was rescued by Nobody and Goliath. Jon later awakened in the Batcave and found out that Robin had been keeping him under surveillance for a long time. The two initially did not get along and the situation was further complicated when Batman and Superman arrived, blaming each other for the conflict.

A fight was averted when Jon used his Freeze Breath to separate the two sides and allow him to explain the situation to his father. While their fathers were discussing the lab tests that Damian had per-formed on Jon, the two boys went off to look at Damian's pets. However, due to Damian's snide remarks and goading, Jon lost his temper and another brawl broke out between them. This was also put down quickly as Batman looks down on them in furious silence.

In order to properly discipline their sons and teach them the value of working together, Superman and Batman have them undergo a series of challenges. However their lack of teamwork and animosity toward each other cause them to fail every challenge. The boys finally manage to put aside their differences and worked together in order to save their fathers from an apparent threat in the Batcave, but this later turns out to be a ruse. At this point, Alfred Pennyworth declares them to be the Super Sons.

Revealing that he was posing as an alternate Clark Kent in Metropolis, Mister Mxyzptlk returned to harass Superman, this time his plan targeted Jon. The fifth-dimensional imp was angry at Superman for not rescuing him from Mr. Oz and in-tended to get revenge by erasing Superman's son from their minds and from history. With Lois Lane already forgetting about their child, Superman desperately offered to play a game with Mxyzptlk in order to get Jon back. The imp agreed and created an obstacle course called the Infinite Planet. After Lois and Clark completed the course, Jon emerges from the top of the course, infused with red energy, which turn out to be the Prime Earth versions of his parents, who have no memory of Jon or even being married. After Mxyzptlk abandons them, the resurrected Superman and Lois Lane of Prime Earth were convinced by Jon to merge with their Post-Crisis selves, combining their histories into one. Right after that battle, Clark Kent introduced his cousin Kara to Jon. The young Superboy bombarded his second cousin with questions about Krypton and her life back there. Upon looking on a baby Jon picture, Kara noted Jon looked right like his father did when Clark was a baby. Jon's personal history has also been rewritten with the time and place of his birth taking place inside the Fortress of Solitude with both Batman and Wonder Woman present. He is also known by the staff at the Daily Planet with Perry White being named as his godfather.

Jonathan is paid a visit by Robin, posing as both his school's bus driver and his substitute teacher. He is later unwillingly recruited by Damian to help him investigate a series of break-ins at Lexcorp. This misadventure was further complicated with the appearance of Lex Luthor, who tried to capture them both. The two boys manage to escape Luthor and followed a lead to a home in Providence, Rhode Is-land, where they encountered a family who still retained their powers from the Amazo Virus. However, one member by the name of Reggie Meyer was driven insane by the excessive use of his powers and took the alias of Kid Amazo. He had also stolen the Amazo Armor from Lexcorp and had planned to use it and the abilities of the Super Sons to lure the Justice League into a trap. Thanks to the arrival of Lex Luthor and aid from Reggie's super-powered sister Sara, Kid Amazo was taken down. Not wanting to explain themselves, Robin and Superboy quickly left the area and headed back to Hamilton. However, their absences from their respective homes did not go unnoticed as they encountered both Lois Lane and Alfred Pennyworth while trying to sneak into Jon's home.

The boys were subsequently punished by their respective parents. Batman forbade Robin to go crime-fighting for a week while Superboy was forced to do his chores without using his superpowers. With the prospect of moving to Metropolis on his mind, Jon eventually ran off and headed to Gotham to speak with Damian in the Batcave. This ended up into another argument and a short fight, before Alfred Pennyworth arrived. They were later joined by Batman and Superman, and worked out their differences. With Superman's and Batman's permission, the two boys would be allowed to go on their own, provided that they would do so together.

With the rewriting of history for Superman and his family, along with the rest of the history of the uni-verse, Jon and his parents are now known as the Kents in Hamilton. While waiting out a big storm in the basement of their house, the Kents are paid a visit by Batman and Robin. Batman tells them that his analysis on Superboy's DNA had come back inconclusive and that his powers should have fully manifested at this point in time. The Dark Knight theorized that something environmental might be sup-pressing the growth of Jon's powers and deduced that it might be the milk of a neighbor's cow. While attaining a sample of the cow's milk, Batman is attacked by a strange alien substance within the sample.

When Batman does not return the following morning, Superman, Robin and Superboy go searching for him. They run afoul of the same squid monster they had encountered earlier, which began attacking the citizens of Hamilton. Superboy was forced to kill the creature with his Heat Vision in self-defense, prompting Superman to have a talk with his son about the consequences of his actions. While his father goes off to continue the search for Batman, Robin and Superboy are met by Jon's classmate, Kathy Branden, who uses psychic powers to render Robin helpless and remove Jon's heat vision. Jon is kidnapped by Kathy and tells Jon "you need to calm down or he won't let you use these powers either."

It was later revealed that the true villain behind Jon's suppressed powers was Manchester Black. He had recruited a group of aliens, which included Kathy and her grandfather, in order to enact his revenge against Superman and groom Jon into his protege. After Jon was captured and Robin placed into suspension, along with Batman, Frankenstein, Frankenstein's Bride, and several others, Manchester forced the young half-Kryptonian to watch the chaos in Hamiliton and seeing his mother's leg get severed, (though this was just one of Manchester's mental illusions).

Jon, while under the control of Black's mental powers, was forced to fight his own father while his powers were pushed to their limits. At the same time, Batman, Robin and all the others who had been Manchester's prisoners but later freed by Superman, fought Manchester's Alien Elite. Eventually, Jon was able to throw off the mind-control and with the help of his friend Kathy, defeated Manchester Black with a huge blast of psychic feedback. Three weeks after the incident, Jon's powers returned and he finally gained the ability to fly.

While trying to teach Superboy the value of using his powers responsibly, Superman took his son on a mission to fight off some alien robot drones. However, Jonathan was overconfident and reckless with his powers. Remembering back to a lesson he learned from his adoptive father Jonathan Kent, the Man of Steel decided to let his son learn from his own mistakes. The pair encountered Psi-Phon and Dreadnaught, who were the masterminds behind the drones. Initially Superboy charged in, but due to his enemies' psychic abilities, his powers were again nullified. Superman gives encouragement to Jonathan by stating that their family bond was stronger. The invaders were defeated as Superman tossed Dreadnaught into space while Superboy forced Psi-Phon to flee in his spaceship.

After moving to Metropolis, Jonathan was allowed to go patrolling the city with Robin, provided that he returned home at 10:00 pm. The two spent their night, stopping some minor crimes, giving aid to some civilians and comparing their views on crime-fighting. However, before Jonathan's curfew was up, they were met by the Teen Titans, who were currently investigating some strange energy readings. Though Starfire wishes to invite Superboy to come with them, Rob-in denied the invitation, stating that Superboy is only ten.

Robin and the Teen Titans investigated a nearby warehouse and were ambushed by Atom Master and Chun Yull. Starfire, Raven, Aqualad, and Beast Boy were taken down quickly due to their inexperience as a group. Robin was the last man standing and faced off against Time Commander, with very dire results.

Superboy was depressed as he returned home in time for his curfew, but was later surprised with the arrival of a defeated Teen Titans and an extremely aged Robin.

The Titans regroup and takes Superboy along with them. With the Boy of Steel's aid, they were able to defeat Atom Master, Chun Yull and Time Commander, as well as restore Robin to his proper age. They were also able to apprehend the mastermind behind the Forgot-ten Villains, Kraklow. The team were very impressed by Super-boy's abilities and invite him to join though Robin still maintains that Jon is still only ten. After the Titans leave with Kraklow, Robin and Superboy investigate the strange mud which created the Forgotten Villains and are suddenly sucked through an inter-dimensional portal. Superboy and Robin were brought to Yggardis, the living planet. They soon meet two heroes named Hard Line and Big Shot who helped rescue Superboy and Robin from Yggardis. Hard Line and Big Shot tell the Super Sons about their origins, Yggardis, the Kraklow of their dimension, and the Forgotten Villains. Superboy and Robin follow Hard Line and Big Shot to their village where they can rest. Soon later Yggardis found the boys and kidnapped Hard Line and Big Shot. The Super Sons, Hard Line, Big Shot, and Kraklow, manage to stop Yggardis from entering Prime Earth. Superboy and Robin return home and reported the whole thing to Superman.

Three weeks later, after Superboy's ability to fly fully manifested, Superman and Batman decide to give Jon and Damian their own secret base of operations at the bottom of Morrison Bay. Much to Damian's dismay, Superboy nicknames the new base as the Fortress of Attitude. The base is a gigantic mass of old train carriages and engines fused together. The new headquarters is equipped with Justice League and Kyrptonian technology. Features include a two-person teleportation pod system, (one connecting to Gotham while the other to Metropolis), a training center, a basketball court, a computer system hooked up to the Justice League Lunar Server and the Batcave mainframe, and a 3-D Batarang printer. Any Class-4 or below emergency calls will be instantly transferred to the Super Sons.

Approximately 3 months has passed since the Kraklow incident and Superboy assists the Teen Titans in taking down the Hangmen from assassinating several key figures at the United Nations Building. Later on at Titan Tower, Jonathan confronts Damian over breaking his promise to allow him to join the Titans on a mission once a month. The other members are both shocked and angry over Damian for making such a promise without informing them and casting a team vote. The meeting is interrupted with the arrival of a Timothy Drake from an alternate future.

The darker future-version of Drake takes control of the tower's systems and allows Raven to read his mind. His main goal is to eliminate the son of Superman before he unleashes a terrible power that will kill millions in the future. He had already taken both Batman and Superman out of the picture in order for them not to interfere. Jonathan is then coated with a strange, black substance that begins to eat away from the inside, causing the young Superboy to panic. At Damian's urging, Superboy flies out of the tower and suddenly explodes with a new, destructive power, heavily damaging the tower and injuring the Titans.

The Teen Titans survive the blast, but are all rendered unconscious, save for Robin, who goes and retrieves Superboy from the water. He hypothesizes that the energy Jon emitted was the Super Flare, but a more unstable version, due to the half-kryptonian's genetic makeup. Knowing that the future Tim Drake will still be after Jonathan, the two boys retreat to their Fortress of Attitude. Meanwhile, Tim Drake makes a new costume for himself using the prototype costumes of the Titans and re-names himself as Savior. He manages to convince Beast Boy and Raven to join him to stop Superboy from causing the deaths of millions in the future, while Starfire, Aqualad, and Kid Flash disagree. At the same time, Tim Drake's hand is pulled into hypertime and is found by the Titans of Tomorrow.

The Teen Titans manage to track down Robin and Superboy to their headquarters, and after a brief melee, manage to convince the two boys that they want to help. After knocking out Robin, Jon gives the Titans the location of the For-tress of Solitude before having Kid Flash aid him in knocking him out. However, when they arrive at the Fortress they find Superman trapped in a cage of Red Kryptonite, which causes Jon to lose control again as he attempts to free his father. Just as Superman is freed, Savior, Beast Boy, Raven and the Titans of Tomorrow arrive, just as Jon emits another, much stronger and unstable Super Flare. With everyone working together to stop the detonation, it is surprisingly Tim Drake who makes the final sacrifice by absorbing the energy of the blast and allowing himself to be pulled into hypertime.

With the danger averted, Superman questions the Titans of Tomorrow, but gets no answers as the Titans of Tomorrow wish to prevent the timelines from being altered any further. They abruptly depart from the scene. Superman then takes Damian and Jon into the Fortress of Solitude and begins discussing the possibility of disbanding the Super Sons, given the recent events. Damian however, swears to the Man of Steel that he will not abandon Jon, to which Jon confirms that he will support Damian. Later on, at the Justice League Watchtower, Robin puts to a vote whether Jon should become a part-time member of the Titans. Other than Damian, the other members vote no, but only be-cause the team itself is fragmented and needs time for it to heal. Jon decides to accept this outcome as he and Damian move forward.

Jon's altercation with Savior actual-ly affected him more than he let on. He became fearful of the possible future Savior was trying to prevent and was dejected at the Titans' refusal to let him join, believing that they saw something wrong with him.

One night at the Kents' residence, the family is visited by none other than Mr. Oz. Jor-El has come to take Jon on a trip through space to better educate him about the known universe. Lois and Clark initially refuse, but Jon tearfully reveals his insecurities to his parents, stating that this could be an opportunity to better understand himself. Convinced, Lois agrees and volunteers to go with them much to Clark's dismay. Clark reluctantly lets his family go, but not before Jor-El gives his son an interstellar communicator to keep in touch, which is unfortunately destroyed during Superman's altercation with Rogol Zaar.

HISTORY
Jacques Duquesne was a per-former at various circuses and carnivals. His act demonstrated his mastery of knives, swords, and other bladed weapons. At one carnival he met a young Clint Barton. Seeing great potential in him, Swordsman and Trickshot trained the boy in blades and archery respectively, with Clint often being a secondary performer in the Swordsman's act.

Swordsman's gambling problem left him heavily in debt. One day the carnival paymaster was robbed, and Barton later found Swordsman with the money. Barton ran from him and climbed the high wire. Swordsman cut it by hurling his sword. Barton fell to the ground and the Swordsman left thinking he was dead. Barton survived and grew up to become Hawkeye. (It is presumed that he and Barton reconciled years later)

The Swordsman committed various crimes around the world, causing him to be barred from several nations. He sought out the Avengers thinking that posing as a hero would lead to much bigger crimes. His offer of service was refused. Angry, he attacked Captain America but was soon surrounded. The Mandarin teleported Swordsman to his location, thinking he would make a useful double agent against Iron Man. He outfitted the Swordsman's sword with several embedded devices through Makluan technology. He also sent a faked message from Iron Man asking the Avengers to allow the Swordsman to join them. Although they suspected a trap, he was allowed to become a member.

Surprisingly, Swordsman fit in well and even developed a crush on the Scarlet Witch. Ordered by Mandarin to lure the Avengers to a bomb, he feared she would be injured and tried to dismantle it. When the other Avengers arrived, it looked like he had been caught setting the bomb instead. Swordsman fled, and although he had regrets, he soon fell back into a pattern of crime. He served alongside a brainwashed Black Widow and Power Man on many occasions. He still longed to be a part of the Avengers, and even joined them in Asgard to fight Ares and the Enchantress. His heart was no longer in crime, and he began to drink heavily while serving Monsieur Khruul.

The beautiful Mantis was also working for Khruul as a barmaid. She convinced him he could be a hero again. He was still reluctant until becoming injured on one of Khruul's assignments. Mantis helped him recover and the two left to the United States. Revitalized, Swordsman asked to rejoin the Avengers, and his sincerity won them over. Swordsman was a valuable member although he still doubted himself. He fell in love with Mantis but his feelings were not reciprocated by her. An angry Khruul captured Duquesne and tortured him on one occasion.

It was soon revealed Mantis was the Celestial Madonna. Kang began a mad quest to make her his bride. He was stopped by the Avengers and another version of himself, Rama-Tut. Kang decided that if he could not have Mantis, no one would and aimed a ray gun at her. Swordsman instinctively jumped in front of his love while Tut was able to grab the gun and alter his aim. The blast travelled up Swordman's sword, fatally wounding him. Mantis realized that she really loved Duquesne as he died.

Swordman's body was buried in a garden maintained by the Priests of Pama near where Mantis had grown up. This garden contained sentient plants known as the Cotati. It was actually the eldest 'tree' that was destined to mate with Mantis. It inhabited Swordman's body and approached Mantis, explaining itself to her. Immortus married the two, then they left Earth transforming into energy. The Celestial Messiah has since been born.

The Swordsman was resurrected by the Chaos King, and he fought the Grim Reaper alongside other dead Avengers, but he perished again in the end of the Chaos War.

It is later revealed that Swordsman had a daughter named Adelynn Duquesne who is a member of Euroforce as Swordswoman.

TALENTS: Mystic Background; Occult Lore

CONTACTS: Margali Szardos, Nightcrawler, X-men

HISTORY
After hearing that Kurt had killed Stephan, Jimaine changed her name to Amanda Sefton and began to date Kurt shortly after he joined the X-Men.

She was kidnapped by Arcade but survived unscathed.

After Margali tried to gain vengeance for Stephan's killing, Jimaine intervened and revealed herself to Kurt as Amanda.

She aided the X-Men in battle numerous times. After an incident with the Beyonder, Nightcrawler broke up with Jimaine and the X-Men went into hiding before the issue could be resolved.

Jimaine also attempted to become Doctor Strange's disciple, leading into her mother having a brief confrontation with the Sorcerer Supreme.

After hearing Kurt had resurfaced as a member of Excalibur, Jimaine traveled to Muir to try and find the team. Jimaine stayed there until the residents were possessed by the Shadow King and after the Muir Island Saga, she retired from superheroing.

Kurt called her out of retirement to help retrieve Captain Britain from the time stream and she almost managed the feat, having to exchange Rachel for Brian. Kurt and Amanda then traveled to Germany where their mother had been captured by D'Spayre. Jimaine and Kurt saved Margali and Amanda followed him back to Excalibur.

Later, Jimaine convinced Shadowcat to give Magik's Soulsword to her and she gave it to her mother for safekeeping. Margali used it to kill every magician ahead of her on the winding way and Margali joined the London branch of the Inner Circle of the Hellfire Club as the Red Queen. After defeating Margali, Jimaine vanished from Excalibur without telling anyone. Margali had secretly taken over her body while the true Jimaine was held captive by Belasco.

Jimaine eventually freed herself and defeated her mother once again. She realized that someone needed to rule Limbo and took the mantle herself, changing her codename to Magik in tribute to Illyana. She controlled the stepping discs of Limbo as did Belasco, through magic.

The Archenemy arose as an attempt to catalog various magics. Jimaine was tricked by S'ym into gathering the other Lords of the Splinter Realms to combine forces against it. However, using their combined power she was able to send Nightcrawler (Kurt Wagner) to stop the machine powering it and then destroyed the being with her Soulsword.

Upon learning that various evil powers sought to take the Soulsword Jimaine sent it to Night-crawler for safekeeping. Jimaine was attacked by Nightmare, but saved by her mother, Margali. They then went to help Nightcrawler against another demon, Hive. Hive warned the Szardos family that a major war was brewing, and they and the Soulsword were at the center of it all.

Enjoying this current page of characters.

But I do have 3 questions:
1) How does Adaptoid have 150 Health?

2) How does flat of blade do more damage than edge? I know Marvel has used this since the originals, but it always seemed like an error to me that got carried forward through the years.

3) Didn't Jimaine use the alias "Magicienne" or some such?

1) How does Adaptoid have 150 Health?

2) How does flat of blade do more damage than edge? I know Marvel has used this since the originals, but it always seemed like an error to me that got carried forward through the years.

3) Didn't Jimaine use the alias "Magicienne" or some such?
Goldar i think with the Adaptoid, it is a balancing act. A set amount of Health which is limoted due to how his powers work, if he had Thor or someone with a higher Health pool it would be a absolute nightmare to deal with, my theory on edge vs blunt, edge would do continual damage . On the 3rd question o have mo input.

1) I believe they gave him a "special status" Kinda like hand-waving things.

2) for blunt damage you increase the damage +1cs if the object hitting the target has Material strength higher than the characters Str statistic. I believe they intentionally made edged damage different to preserve the "heroic" feel to the game because "Heroes don't kill."

3) Nope. Her aliases were/are Amanda Sefton, Daytripper, Magik
