(Movie version)

The version of the Filipino super-hero Lastikman seen in the 2004 movie take. As of August of 2020, the game stats and discussion about the traditional version of Lastikman have been restored. They had been lost for far too long due to a stupid cut-and-paste mistake.

Icicle

(Joar Makent part #1])

The Golden Age version of the character, though he endured into the 1990s. Criminal, genius, wielder of the cold gun. As of January of 2020, this profile was overhauled for concision and smoother reading. It was also cleft in two to facilitate reading on smartphones.

Tuk the cave boy


A very minor character from the distant past of the Marvel Universe. Your typical heroic cave boy of the day, really. As of January of 2020, did a tiny update. And heh, since we're on a break on not publishing anything else, I might as well push him up the homepage. As of the 8th of January added further material because...

Superwoman

Our main, Big Damn Huge Wonder Woman Profile. Tons of everything. Recommended reading. As of July of 2017, this article was split into three part due to the aforementioned "big damn huge" factor.
