Sharp and classy private detective in 1980s New Orleans. Works as the partner to ex-mercenary Ashe. From an excellent DC Comics miniseries.

As of March of 2019, this entry has been improved and received M&M stats that wear a raspberry beret. The kind you find in a second-hand store.

An obscure enemy of the early X-Men, then of Ka-Zar and Mockingbird, back in the days.

He was never quite developed but he has ties to Latin American mobs, the Mayan gods, the Savage Land, oil cartels and other uncommon story elements. So there’s potential here.

A traditional — and remarkably dangerous — enemy of the Black Panther. This profile is filled with stuff about Wakandan history and politics, as M’Baku is a much much more interesting character than most people think. Only a fool underestimates the White Gorilla !

This is the second half of our Man-Ape (M’Baku) character profile, with a link to the first half.

As of February of 2019 this profile was overhauled. It was also cleft, since the explanations about all the Wakanda stuff made it a bit long.

This is DC Comics’ Courtney Whitmore, the future Stargirl, during her early career as the Star-Spangled Kid. It’s a “Year One” sort of writeup.

As of February of 2019, it has been polished a little bit more and received brazen, aggressive, irresponsible M&M stats.

A sample, but atypical, Special Forces trooper of the Galactic Republic during Star Wars’s Old Republic era and from the SWTOR video game. Comes with historical context primers, particularly about the military.

As of February of 2019, this profile was revised for style and concision, M&M-ified, and split in two to make certain it’s not too long to read in one sitting.

An obscure 1970s enemy of Ka-Zar… lord of the Hidden Jungle !

Also a robust martial artist with some A.I.M. access and Harlem mob contacts, which sounded useful.

One of the most famous characters in the Soul Calibur fighting video games. Magical whip-sword, martial arts, alchemy.

As of January of 2019, this profile was rewritten, updated, upgraded. Generally, we’ve made it more well-rounded.

A made-up heroic fantasy character, inspired by minor Heretic/Hexen-like video game Ziggurat.

Young legless alchemist with a thousand grudges, and a magical arsenal. As the song goes, odds are she won’t live to see tomorrow.
