Marvel Handbook: Assemblage of Avatars... Loving It! (Avenging Brigadier)



I am loving the back pages of the recently released Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Volume 7: Magic (from the journals of Ian Mcnee...

there was a mention of the Assemblage of Avatars: magical characters from the Hyborian age:

zhered-na
dakimh
lady linnea
rotath
sorrow
teyonoga
tuzun thune
akoos the red wizard
thulsa doom
lord varnae
c'thunda

each has an entry in the excellent Marvunapp Appendix site but what I found tricky was Linnea and Akoos: Linnea was the ElfQueen character from the Avengers comics while Akoos I think was made up for that assemblage info, but the Red Wizard was mentioned to be an inherited mantle stretching from the days of Atlantis...

You handbook guys ROCK! Im so impressed and the mythopoeia you create for the handbooks is awesome!

Cheers,
Eric the Avenging Brigadier

Is it from something recent, a reprint of the old handbooks from the eighties or something else?

It's from our current series of hardcovers for the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe. Despite misconceptions, this multi-book project is *not* just a reprint collection of the past few years' worth of Handbooks. We're updating, adding, reworking, etc. and generally making it very different from what it's following.
