Whatâ€™s Happening, Marvel Fans?
In November of 2006, Marvel gave us a cool follow-up to the 1960s and 1970s Handbooks, which deals with the Marvel Universe of the 1980s. It was a time when we had a former actor named Ronald Reagan run our country with optimism, communism came to an end, the downfall of disco and the rise of MTV, and hit shows such as Diffâ€™rent Strokes, Growing Pains, Charles in Charge, Silver Spoons, Whoâ€™s the Boss, Perfect Strangers, Golden Girls, and Family Ties. On December 31, 1989, the Marvel Universe became an empire, with an expanded Avengers line-up operating on two coasts (for the record, there were Thor, Iron Man, Doctor Pym, Wasp, Hulk, Captain America, Hawkeye, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, the late Swordsman, Hercules, Black Panther, Vision, Black Knight, the late Captain Mar-Vell, Rick Jones, Black Widow, Mantis, Moondragon, Beast, Hellcat, Two-Gun Kid, Whizzer, Wonder Man, the Guardians of the Galaxy (Vance Astro, Starhawk, Martinex, Charlie-27, Yondu, and Nikki), Jocasta, Ms. Marvel (now Binary), Falcon, and newcomers Tigra, She-Hulk, Captain Marvel II, Starfox, Mockingbird, Iron Man II, Thing, Sub-Mariner, Doctor Druid, Moon Knight, the late Marrina, Yellowjacket II, Demolition Man, Mister Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Gilgamesh, USAgent, Firebird, Quasar, and the Golden Age Human Torch), a new Captain Marvel (namely Monica Rambeau), a disbanded Defenders (whose ranks included former X-Men Beast, Iceman, and Angel, as well as Moondragon, Valkyrie, and Gargoyle), a Fantastic Four with constant line-up changes (including She-Hulk, Crystal, and the new Ms. Marvel), as well as a new headquarters, a Heroes for Hire with Power Man and Iron Fist (the latter of which was believed to be dead for a while), two Iron Men, a new generation of the X-Men called the New Mutants, She-Hulk, the Spaceknights, a black-and-white clad Spider-Man, a now-bearded Thor, and a brown-and-orange clad Wolverine. Also, many heroes had changes in both costume and personality as well. This handbook is all about the amazing 1980s, and will cover a lot of 80s favorites. But before we go on any further, we need to revisit those 80s characters who were covered in previous modern handbooks:

And everyone from Marvel Legacy: The 1960s and 1970s!!!
*theyâ€™re in this handbook, but weâ€™re not gonna worry about them
And now, here are the characters that made Marvel the comic company for the 80s:
1. US Archer (Ulysses Solomon Archer): a former ordinary trucker who now travels into space and an ally of She-Hulk. He is the brother of the evil Highwayman, the husband of Midnight (a former enemy), and a true blue pal to Poppa Wheelie, Wide Load Annie, and Retread. He is equipped with a CB skull, which can allow him to pick up Citizensâ€™ Band transmissions. His truck is called the Star Rig (which followed the US1), which is able to fly in air and space, reach warp speed, carry a huge cargo, change into a truck, and respond to USâ€™s mental commands. He helped She-Hulk and Razorback battle Xemnu the Titan after the monster mentally controlled the hero for a while. First appearance: US1 #1 (May 1983).
2. Battleworld: the location where the Secret Wars took place. The location was a patchwork planet made by the Beyonder, which included many worlds, including Earth. Among those who resided on Battleworld were Julius Ackerman, Gruhl, Hanrak, Juneyar, Llrrlllnnllyyrri, the Reckoner, the Takers, Tarianna, Zsaji, and, believe it or not, a human Ben Grimm. As the Thing left the Battleworld, the planet exploded, taking all with it. First appearance: Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars #1 (May 1984). Final appearance: Thing #22 (April 1985).
3. Blank: West Coast Avengers foe. A small-time thief, he was an agent of Graviton. He donned a harness that created a force field around his body, enabling him to protect himself from physical harm. The harness also shaded his body so that he could not be noticed. He was thrown down in an undertow by Graviton and died, although Tigra and Shroud were saved by Iron Man. First appearance: West Coast Avengers #2 (October 1984). Final appearance: West Coast Avengers #4 (December 1984).
4. Captain Hero (Bobby Wright): a teenage super hero who served as an ally of Power Man and Iron Fist. He was abandoned by his teenage mother as a toddler and moved into a foster home. He could change his molecular structure, as well as the structure of anything within a short-ranged radius. He could also shape-shift, fly, turn invisible or intangible, and become strong. After Iron Fist supposedly died, he disintegrated into an energy particle and blew away with the wind. First appearance: Power Man and Iron Fist #111 (November 1984). Final appearance: Power Man and Iron Fist #125 (September 1986). What we didnâ€™t know at the time was that Captain Hero was actually Super-Skrull in disguise.
5. OZ Chase: Dazzler foe. A bounty hunter, Chase worked for Dust and Silence and was willing to capture Dazzler. He usually wields a sawed-off shotgun and dons a bulletproof vest. His companion is a wolf-dog hybrid named Cerberus who helps him a lot. When the X-Men were supposedly killed during a fight with the Adversary, Chase mourned the Dazzlerâ€™s death, but did not know that she was still alive and living in Australia. First appearance: Dazzler #38 (July 1985).
6. Crimson Mage (Azaziah): Ghost Rider foe. An evil sorcerer, his plan was to conquer the world (like many other despots). He possessed a mystic globe that he stole from three demons, which could fire deadly blasts, transfer souls, and view distant events. He also had the ability to live indefinitely by entering an immortal body. After Johnny Blaze separated himself from his Zarathos persona, Blaze shattered the Mageâ€™s globe, causing the magician to crumble to dust. First appearance: Ghost Rider #43 (April 1980). Final appearance: Ghost Rider #44 (May 1980).
7. Crossroads: a place the Hulk was banished to since Earth could not afford the presence of the green hero. It is a magical gateway to other dimensions. Among those who inhabit the Crossroads are the Hulk, Nalee, Goblin, Guardian, Glow, Zgorian, the Puffball Collective, Maktu and his Iron Knights, Dr. Daniel DeCyst, Sym, and a Sacrificial Victim. Among the places Hulk had visited are an Underwater World, a Purple Giant World (in the form of a demolition city), a Saurian (or Acid-Rain) World, a Poisoned World of Spine Creatures, the City of Death, the Purple World of Exile (which belongs to Zgorian), a Radiation Monster World, a Dead World, a World of Quicksand, a Tornado World, an Ocean World, Andromedaâ€™s Graveyard, a World of Robots, a Burning World, and the Signpost which directs the Hulk to these and other worlds. Luckily, with the help of Scottish professor Daniel DeCyst, he has escaped the world and Walter Langkowski (who was Box at the time) paid a visit to the world. First appearance: Incredible Hulk #300 (October 1984).
8. Crystar: the Crystal Warrior from the planet Crystalium. He is the brother of the evil Moltar and the nephew of the wise Feldspar and also resides with Koth, Stalax, Lavour, Ambara, Minay, Kalibur, Dyoahn, Bahb, Shen, and Ogeode. His entire body is made of durable crystal and is unable to eat, sleep, or breathe. In battle, he uses a crystalline sword and shield. After a battle with the evil Zardeth, Crystar became the new king of Crystalium and began an era of peace. Like Rom and the Micronauts, he was actually based on an action figure line. First appearance: Saga of Crystar, Crystal Warrior #1 (May 1983).
9. Dark-Crawler: enemy of Doctor Strange and the Hulk. Once known as Night-Crawler (a moniker later given to an X-Man), he was at one point the ruler of the Dark Dimension and has once allied himself with Amphibion and Torgo to defeat the Hulk. His weapon of choice is the Sceptre of Shadows, which can blind anyone who opposes him in blackness. He also possesses super-strength, a powerful tail, interdimensional travel, and force blasts. After adding the Hulk to his team, he and his allies weakened Abomination and destroyed the Galaxy Master. First appearance: Incredible Hulk #126 (April 1970). Was mentioned in the appendix in Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe #3.
10. Deadly Ernest (Ernest St. Ives): Alpha Flight foe. A former French soldier during the first World War, he was also the father of the first Nemesis and led his own crime syndicate, rumored to be connected to Maggia. With the touch of his left hand, anyone can die in a second. If his body parts were severed, he could reanimate them. He was slain by Nemesis after he slain Alpha Flight, who was revived by the heroine. First appearance: Alpha Flight #7 (February 1984). Final appearance: Alpha Flight #31 (February 1986).
11. Deltites: enemies of SHIELD. They are LMDs of SHIELD Agents (including Laura Brown, Eric Koenig, Sidney Levine, Clay Quartermain, Jack Rollins, Gail Runciter, Jasper Sitwell, and James Woo), created by an android LMD called the Deltite in order to dupe SHIELDâ€™s leader Nick Fury. The Deltite was created by Arnim Zola and was programmed after Furyâ€™s believed-to-be-dead enemy Baron Strucker. They were opposed by a new SHIELD (which included Nick Fury, Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, Al MacKenzie, Kate Neville, and Alexander Goodwin Pierce). After a spear was thrown at the main Deltite by Nick Fury, the system was overloaded and all of the Deltites were killed in an explosion. One Deltite model actually survived and was placed in SHIELD custody. First appearance: Nick Fury vs. SHIELD #1 (June 1988). Final appearance: Nick Fury vs. SHIELD #6 (November 1988).
12. DP7: a group of paranormals who were given strange abilities via an astronomical phenomenon. The founding members are Anti-Body (Randy Oâ€™Brien), Mastadon (David Landers), Glitter (Stephanie Harrington), Friction (Charlotte Beck), Twilight (Lenore Fenzl), Scuzz (Dennis Cuzinski), and Blur (Jeff Walters). Additional members include Mutator (George Mullaney), Sponge (Merrian Sorenson), and Chrome (Jenny Swensen). Some of their enemies are named after classic rock songs and include Aqualung, Purple Haze, Space Oddity, Acid Queen, Helter Skelter, Wipeout, Wild Thing, and Wooly Bully (by Jethro Tull, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, The Who, The Beatles, The Surfaris, The Troggs, and Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs, respectively). The team is now Friction, Chrome, Mastadon, Glitter, and Anti-Body, with Sponge and Mutator becoming normal humans again. First appearance: DP7 #1 (November 1986).
13. Holly-Ann Ember: ally of Wasp, Tigra, Storm, and She-Hulk. An elementary school student, her dream code name is Starbird and she is the daughter of town sheriff Joe Ember and his wife Mary. She can change reality, reshaping it to her will as though her wishes were realities. She also has the power to teleport people across vast distances and make costumes materialize from nowhere. Her finest hour was fighting the Timekeeper and his AIM allies. First appearance: Marvel Graphic Novel #16 (1985).
14. Followers of the Light: allies of the Shogun Warriors. The membership included Basque, Charn, Sherna, and Tambura and the agents were Genji Odashu, Ilongo Savage, Richard Carson, Judith Johns, and Deena James. The group met in the Shogun Sanctuary nestled in a Far East mountain range. Among the enemies they faced are the Maur-Konn, the Followers of the Dark, Samurai Destroyer, Doctor Demonicus, the Hand of Five, and Rokk-Korr. Sadly, the Followers of the Light were killed by the Samurai Destroyer and the Agents lived their civilian lives. First appearance: Shogun Warriors #1 (February 1979). Final appearance: Fantastic Four #226 (January 1981). Was mentioned in the appendix in Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe #4.
15. Fusion (Hubert and Pinky Fusser): Spider-Man foe. They are two dwarf twins who are a nuclear physicist and a janitor rolled into one. At numerous times, the twins can merge into a single being and can absorb energy in almost all forms, be it electromagnetic, chemical, or physical. The being can release portions of the energy in order to repel attacks. Spider-Man tore the brothers apart and both were later sent to Project: PEGASUS for studies. First appearance: Amazing Spider-Man #208 (September 1980).
16. Generic Super-Hero: just some generic comic book super-hero Marvel made up in 1984 in order to allow kids to be a superhero. He lives with his parents and his kid brother Bobby, the latter of which is in a comatose. His friends include a generic boss and a generic girlfriend and his enemies include an evil boss named Parsons, an evil scientist named Sanderson (possibly a node to Peter Sanderson), and some girl named Emily Carstairs. His superpowers are basicallyâ€¦generic, including super-strength, speed, and durability (typical). I hope he ends up a forgotten hero. First (and possibly only) appearance: The Generic Comic #1 (April 1984).
17. Gladiators: enemies of Dazzler, Beast, and the New Mutants. Based in Los Angeles, California, they aim to give live entertainment to the super-rich by fighting others, mostly to their deaths.

Former members include Dazzler, Magma, Shadow King (possessing Karma), and Sunspot.

They have yet to reform since their franchise still exists. First appearance: Beauty and the Beast #2 (February 1985).

After the Olympians passed on to the next plane, Hercules led a new generation of Olympian Gods. First appearance: Hercules: Prince of Power #1 (September 1982).
19. Lady Daemon (Megan Daemon): Clan Daemonâ€™s Child of Light. She is the sister of the evil Alisabeth Daemon (who killed their parents) and is also an enemy of the Outer Dark. She uses magical powers, which are probably inherited to her by her ancestors and knows a lot about the occult. She also owns tarot cards to predict the future and the pendant of a crystal catâ€™s skull to focus her abilities. During a fire in Hindenburg after fighting the Outer Dark, Daemon and her fiancÃ© Ian MacInnis escaped the fire safely, while Alisabethâ€™s fate is unknown.

He can also scan recent memories of a person using physical contact with that being. His weapons of choice are cleaver-like blades and he has two hearts and leather skin. After helping his fellow X-Men defeat Master Mold, Longshot left the team and faded away to an unknown area. First appearance: Longshot #1 (September 1985). Has appeared in Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Deluxe Edition #7 and Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Master Edition #30.
22. Lunatik (Arisen Tyrk): Defenders foe. This villain compromises fragments of Arisen Tyrk and hails from the Other Realm. In addition to his superhuman strength, endurance, and durability, he has the power to cast various spells and shoot powerful energy blasts. In addition, he usually rides a large winged Nilffim bird, wears body armor, and carries a sword in combat. When last we saw him, he was in Xhoohxâ€™s care. After that, Xhoohx was killed by agents of the Unnameable and Tyrkâ€™s fate is unknown.

Although he had vast magical powers, he often employed demons, dragons, goblins, and trolls to do the dirty work. He also had the power to open portals to other dimensions and was an equal swordsman. During a fight with a resurrected King Arthur and the Black Knight, he was impaled by their swords (Excalibur and the Ebony Blade, respectively) and was torn apart, never to return again. First appearance: Hulk Comic #45 (January 1980). Final appearance: Incredible Hulk #63 (May 1980).

When he drew his power from the Star Brand, he can enter and manipulate othersâ€™ dreams, though the ease with which he does this relies on the dreamerâ€™s will. When he uses his powers, his crescent-moon shaped scar will glow white and he can cast illusions. He later fought Mook (a pawn of the Ayatollah of Iran) and killed the villain. First appearance: Nightmask #1 (November 1986).
25. Dakota North: Marvelâ€™s spunky redheaded private investigator. Her mission is to travel the world and capture criminals in an M.O. similar to Luke Cage and Iron Fist.

Lastly, he took red, white, and blue pills for alertness and energy, barbiturates to counteract the amphetamines, and to sedate his behavior, respectively. During a battle with Captain America and Daredevil, he was shot in the chest by a helicopter and died, leaving his body on Ben Urichâ€™s desk. First appearance: Daredevil #232 (July 1986).

He is a raccoon with a gun and hails from Halfworld, populated by human loonies, robots, a walrus named Wal Rus, an otter named Lylla, a rabbit named Blackjack Oâ€™Hare, a turtle named Uncle Pyko, a mole named Judson Jakes, and an iguana named Dyvyne. He possesses many abilities of a rudimentary raccoon, such as a keen sense of smell and sight. When he wants to fly and carry the weight of another animal (one, mind you), he would use his rocket skates. His weapon of choice is a laser pistol. At one point of his career, he teamed up with the Hulk to battle Jakes and Dyvyne. First appearance: Marvel Preview #7 (June 1976). Was mentioned in the appendix in Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe #10 and has appeared in Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Deluxe Edition #11 and Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Master Edition #9.
29. Schizoid Man (Chip Martin): Spider-Man foe. He is the son of a state senator and is rumored to be either a mutant or an enhanced human. He has a malevolent â€œOtherâ€ persona that can levitate and develop solid objects, including a mallet, snake-creatures, ravens, a giant hand, knives, and demons. If he loses his concentration, the creations fade away and he is weak. He is now in a psychiatric ward for special care. First appearance: (as Chip) Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #36 (November 1979); (as Schizoid Man) Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #38 (January 1980).
30. Scourge of the Underworld: an organization of villain hunters who want to exterminate all super-powered criminals (mostly mediocre supervillains). Each Scourge is equipped with a gun and always yells out, â€œJustice is Servedâ€ whenever he or she kills the bad guy. One Scourge killed the Enforcer as a homeless baglady before battling Iron Man. The next victim was the Miracle Man while he was riding on a bus with the Thing. During the second Secret Wars, Scourge killed the Psycho-Man construct of the Hate-Monger after the villain battled the Fantastic Four. After Megatak battled Thor, a Scourge killed the forgotten villain disguised as an old man. The next victim was Constrictor, but the villain was protected by Captain America and Scourge (disguised as a nurse) jumped out the window. Hence, Constrictor was spared. Another spared victim was Kraven the Hunter, but the villain survived (he would later die after battling Spider-Man). Next in line was the Melter, who was killed by Scourge as his assistant. A female Scourge named Caprice disguised herself as Golddigger and killed Titania of the Grapplers while she was taking a shower. The next victim was Basilisk, who was shot by Scourge dressed up as a construction worker near the Baxter Building. Another Scourge dressed up as a Native American and killed the criminal duo of Hammer and Anvil. Later on, the same Scourge who killed Basilisk killed Fly dressed as a trash collector. Meanwhile, the second Scourge shot the Wraith as a police officer while he was trying to kill Flash Thompson. The next day, the original Scourge killed both Death Adder and Blue Streak dressed as a cab driver and a trucker, respectively. Perhaps the biggest Scourge killing took place at the Bar with No Name in Ohio, where Scourge (dressed as a bartender) killed a record of 18 villains (Firebrand, Ringer, Letha, Mirage, Bird-Man, Cyclone, Vamp, Commander Kraken, Hijacker, Turner D. Century, Shellshock, Cheetah, Jaguar, Shellshock, Rapier, Mind-Wave, Grappler, and Steeplejack). Water Wizard would have been the nineteenth villain, but missed the opportunity when he came late. First appearance: Iron Man #194 (May 1985). Has appeared in Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Deluxe Edition #11 and Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Master Edition #33.
31. Spider-Ham (Peter Porker): Larval Earthâ€™s most beloved hero. He started out as a spider bitten by May Porker, a pig, and Porker himself later became a pig. His greatest enemies are J. Jeremiah Jackal, Bullfrog, the Terrible Terrier Gang (which compromises Airedale, Boston, Bull, Skye, and Wire), Chickensteinâ€™s Monster, Hogzilla, and Ducktor Doom. Like his human counterpart, he can shoot webs from his hands and swing from building to building using his webs for transportation. Sometimes, he has his â€œpigspiderâ€ backpack, which houses a change of clothes while he is in costume. Little does he know that a rival cult is waiting to attack our porky hero. First appearance: Marvel Tails #1 (November 1983).
32. Spindrifter (Marandi Sjorokker): ally of Spider-Man and Doctor Strange. Hailing from the Cloudsea Dimension, she is the daughter of sorcerer Kurudred the Blood Drinker (also called the Tyrant of Dolara and the Master of the Nightspawn) and her name sounds Norwegian. With a vast knowledge of mystical experience and a whole collection of mystic artifacts, she employs magical ponchos in order to fly from place to place. She is also able to access dimensional portals to multiple realms. After Spider-Man helped her battle Tordenkakerlakk, her eternal youth spell was broken and she returned Spider-Man to New York, hoping one day, their paths will cross. First appearance: Marvel Graphic Novel #22 (1986).
33. Star-Thief (Ilse Pterigil): ally and enemy of the Defenders (which compromised Andromeda, Angel, Beast, Cloud, Gargoyle, Iceman, and Valkyrie) and their ally Seraph. She is an extraterrestrial mutant from the planet Dreolln. She has the ability to access the Cosmic Cubeâ€™s powers from light years away. She can also change reality to her every whim, usually to transport stars away into a pocket dimension located in her purse. Now in a coma, the mutant princess relinquished the stolen stars she stole and Kubik restored them to their proper places. First appearance: Defenders #150 (December 1985).
34. Stratosfire (Sandy Vincent): Iron Man foe. She worked for the Roxxon Oil Company and was employed by its CEO, Jonas Hale and harbors a hatred for Sunturion, her former friend. She manipulated great control over microwave energy and had the ability to transform herself into microwave energy and teleport to other locations, fire blasts of energy, and change objects into energy and later absorb it. Her main weakness was the Zed control, which was a control device placed in her by Roxxon. After Sunturion activated the Zed control, she was killed in an explosion and Sunturion was depowered. Only appearance: Iron Man Annual #9 (1987).
35. Micah Synn: Daredevil foe. He is the leader of the ancient Kinjorge tribe of East Africa and was hired by the Kingpin to kill Daredevil and his friends. He used to have peak human strength, stamina, speed, and acute senses. A barbarian, he was also cunning and adaptable, learning to lie and use others for his own. After he fled Daredevil, he began a lifetime of excess gorging, drinking, and smoking when Daredevil found him, begging the hero for his help. First appearance: Daredevil #202 (January 1984).
36. Thundersword (Stewart Cadwell): pawn of the Beyonder and enemy of Captain America, Dazzler, the second Iron Man (James Rhodes), Cannonball and Magik of the New Mutants, and the X-Men (Magneto, Nightcrawler, Wolverine, Colossus, Shadowcat, Rogue, and Rachel Summers). Before he was empowered by the Beyonder, he was a television writer. As Thundersword, he wields a lightning-shaped sword that could cut through brick and metal, fire powerful bolts of energy, and return to him via command. His steed was a winged horse named Boromir, which he could recreate with a thought. When last we saw him, Iron Man (Rhodes) defeated the villain with a single punch into the ocean and was never seen from again. First appearance: Secret Wars II #1 (July 1985). Possible final appearance: Iron Man #197 (August 1985).
37. Tunnelworld: an alien world which mostly resembles Earth which is taken via magical transport. The Defenders have visited this place in order to investigate the source of Lunatikâ€™s power. Some of the inhabitants of Tunnelworld are Aeroika, Xhoohx, and Ytitnedion. Among the races found in Tunnelworld are the Buzzard People, the Ixhoohxi, the Nilffim, the Nya, and the Sputs (including Stalwag). After Xhoohx was slain by Ytitnedion, the latter was vanquished and Tunnelworld regained its independence. First appearance: Defenders #71 (May 1979).
38. Zaniac: Thor foe. He was a parasitic magical create who could use human hosts for his own, including Brad Wolfe and Thug Thatcher (an earlier foe of Thor). He had the ability to create and manipulate radioactive knives and he had a hatred for females (which he uses his Knife of Love). When he was killed, he would release a horde of vermin-like creatures that would look for a new host for the Zaniac. After Zaniac escaped from Wolfeâ€™s corpse, Justice Peace and Thor destroyed the vermin before another Zaniac can be formed. Later on, Thug Thatcher died of a heart attack. First appearance: Thor #319 (May 1982). Final appearance: Thor #372 (October 1986).
39. Zxaxz: Spellbinder foe. He is a very powerful extradimensional demon who wanted to conquer dimensions before the Other got a chance to. He has the power to manipulate chaos and order and can open gates to other planets. He has also made numerous tools in order to channel his powers, including conversion rings of chaos and order, a shape-shifting crown, and a cloak that enables him to fly. After a fight with the Spellbinder, he put aside his differences with the heroine and helped her pursue the Other, leaving the rings on Earth. First appearance: Spellbound #1 (January 1988).

After two decades, the universe keeps expanding! Iâ€™m finally glad Longshot, Rocket Raccoon, and Scourge all got profiles. Well, thatâ€™s a wrap for me. Weâ€™ve got one more decade to cover: the Awesome 90s, where Marvel gets even bigger that ever. And later this month, weâ€™re covering the remaining S characters and a whole lot of Tâ€™s in the All-New Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z #11. We might get a chance to see Stranger, the Subterraneans, Sunder, Sunspot, the Super-Adaptoid, Super-Skrull, Supreme Intelligence, Surtur, Talisman, Tarantula, Taskmaster, Tatterdemalion, Terminus, Texas Twister, Thanos, Thena, Tom Thumb, Thunderbolt, the Thunderiders, Tiger Shark, Tinkerer, Titan, Titania (either of them), Titanium Man, Toad, Tomorrow Man, Torpedo, Tower, Trapster, and Triton in the pages if weâ€™re lucky. Until then, catch you on the flip side!!!
