I agree with most of this, except the part where the villain had a hand in creating him, it feels a bit cliché with current Marvel. ( see: wolverine, for the most obvious example)

Other than that, I would say that ASTEROTH is an excellent foil for him. Already she may have done just as much, or MORE to destroy his people than Galactus ever did. And with how potentially powerful she/IT is, then I see no problem for it to return, even tho one small aspect of it was destroyed.

Plus... she's got that bad-girl look down pretty good... heh heh heh... ;\)

    It seems to me that Bill is on the verge of getting himself off the B list of heroes. Horseface aside, his back story and power really seem to appeal to readers judging by the number of projects involving the character. So, what's holding him back? He needs an arch enemy. Think about it. Thor and Loki, Superman and Luthor, Batman and Joker, Cap and the Red Skull, etc, etc

    So, who would be a good choice? Bring back Alpha Ray from the Oeming mini? Some other cosmic like Terrax or a resurrected Morg? An entirely new villain? Or maybe an unknown figure from Bill's past? Throw in your two cents here and let's see if we can't find Bill a foil.

    Personally, I think the villain should have some ties to the Korbonites but also be able to tie into Bill's Asgardian connection. I'm thinking a traitor to the Korbonites. Just as Surtur sought out Malekith and Loki as allies in the prelude to Walt's Ragnarok he might have had an agent among the Korbonites. One who betrayed his own people, heck his own solar system, in exchange for promised power. As a twist, maybe he could even be one of the scientists/government agents responsible for the election of the champion. It may even turn out the gruesome appearance Bill now sports was unnecessary, but this character's demented nature drove him to do it as a cruel jest. His familiarity with Bill's cyborg physiology combined with whatever dark powers granted him by Surtur could make him quite formidable and a real threat.
