As with most years, we were planning to skip one update – the late December one. But I ended up splitting some overlong writeups (and touching them up a bit) so they’d be easier to read. So I guess there’s a little something after all.

As always, stay safe during any seasonal celebrations. We wish you a pleasant next 12 months — without Fade demons, Brood embryos, spoors of Ares or any of those bothers.

Our first Carol Danvers profile (they’re in chronological order), so start here. This one covers “flashback Carol” during her career as a military pilot and intelligence agent.

As of December of 2017, this article was split into two. Because it was a bit too long, and because there’s LOTS OF STUFF in it.

This is the third profile in this series. Previously there were two entries, but the second profile was too long for most readers to take in in one gulp.

Sarge Steel is an archetypal tough guy, private detective, adventurer, spy, spymaster and G-man. His profiles thus touches many government operations in the DC Universe after the Crisis but before Flashpoint.

If you haven’t read the previous parts, this profile starts with terribly convenient links. So feel free to click anyway, heh ?

A gisted entry for Hawkeye (Clint Barton) in general. Lots of trick arrows, a brisk review of his career and various other bits about this classic Avenger. It should hold the line if you don’t need a precise coverage of a specific era.

As of December of 2017, this profile now has M&M arrows in its quiver.

It’s not an easy job, being a space trucker. But Flux is good at it, and has all sorts of cunning resources if she ever were to crash on a weird planet because of a mad evil scientist doing evil space science and occasionally murdering the goat plant people.

Hypothetically, I mean.

Flux is from the Crashlands video game. The entry also has a surprising amount of DC Heroes footwork around her teleportation equipment.
