The most interesting ally of Mark Hazzard in the Merc 1986-87 comic book. Streetwise young expert in the Japanese martial arts, as was the style of the day.

Ariane de Troïl aka Damasque/Masquerouge is the heroine of a classic series of French swashbuckling graphic novels, halfway between the Three Musketeers, the Count of Monte Cristo and Zorro.

As of May of 2019, this profile was cleft in twain. It didn’t feel that long to read, but with so many folks perusing this site on smartphones smaller pages are better.

This Kree hardliner and senior officer clashed with the Avengers during the 1990s.

He’s not the most memorable Avengers enemy, but if your stories make use of the Kree (or Marvel space stuff in general) he’s useful.
