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

lady linnea
tuzun thune
akoos the red wizard

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!

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