News and latest profiles

An early enemy of Marvel Comics’ Nova. Straightforward, evil, useful brick.

As of October of 2017, this profile has been polished (HA HA HA !). It also received M&M stats rated at 10 on the Mohs scale.

And then as of October of 2017 (again), it was updated (again) because I (again) forgot to add material about Diamondhead’s appearances since Gareth originally wrote his profile.

This covers the 1980-2000, pre-retcon Tessa as a Hellfire Club and Sebastian Shaw asset. At this point she’s more of a background character, but an intriguing one.

And fairly typical of the Claremont Era for the X-Men.

Turbo (Michiko “Mickey” Musashi) is likely best remembered as a 1990s New Warriors character.

She operated the Torpedo suit, from an old Rom the Spaceknight supporting character, and she’s not half-bad with it.

Perhaps the greatest villain known to Generation Y… well, at least back when they were very young and if they were watching lots of telly. And until they saw Darth Vader, I guess. Oh, well. You know.

This is the eeeviiill Transformer boss, as he appeared in the “G1” 1980s comics published by Marvel. Back then he still turned into a tricked out Walter P38 pistol.

A very minor 1977 enemy of Spider-Man (Peter Parker) and Nova (Richard Rider). But heh, he’s useful as a stock baddie.

As of September of 2017, this profile received an overhaul and well-lit M&M stats.

So that’s the version of B.J. Blazkowicz who is featured in the vintage Wolfenstein 3D video game – later (and earlier) versions would be a different profile. Super-elite World War Two commando. The profile includes game emulation rules.

As of September of 2017, B.J. now has dauntless M&M stats.

This profile covers the classic career of Warlock, the techno-organic mutant alien among the New Mutants. There’s also a fair bit of stuff about modelling his species’ abilities.

Our third Cluemaster profile, this one covering the Dixon take on him and subsequent events up to Flashpoint. Still something of a loser, but markedly more dangerous and oddly realistic for a guy in bright orange Spandex.

A very minor incendiary villain who clashed with Nova (Richard Rider) and Power Man & Iron Fist.

As of September of 2017, this profile was overhauled, extended and received incendiary M&M stats.

From the Squad, a seminal ultrahuman group in Malibu’s Ultraverse comics setting during the early 1990s. Explosion power.
