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.

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.

The former Marvel Boy, a young telekinetic hero who worked with the Thing, the New Warriors then the Avengers – which isn’t half-bad. Vance Astrovik will also would have become a time-travelling astronaut. Yeah, that part’s complicated.

Very minor Marvel hulking alien menace. But he plays an important role in the origin of Nova (Richard Rider) as he kills not-Abin-Sur. So he’s a handy space marauder.

As of September of 2017, this space writeup received a space overhaul complete with space M&M stats.
