Lady Lark

Lady Lark (Linda Lewis), later named Skylark, is a character in the Marvel Comics series Squadron Supreme and hails from Earth-712. She first appeared in Avengers #85 (Feb. 1971), and was created by Roy Thomas and John Buscema. She is based on Black Canary and later on Hawkgirl in DC Comics.[citation needed]

Linda Lewis was a singer before an enemy of the Squadron Supreme, Doctor Decibel, surgically implanted synthetic vocal cords into her throat, giving her the ability to generate a "sonic cry" which could incapacitate opponents. A reluctant hero at best, Linda often wished to return to her singing career.

She often partnered in crime-fighting, and later romantically, with the character Golden Archer (mirroring the relationship between the modern Black Canary and Green Arrow); however, she refused his marriage proposal. The Archer then used a mind-altering device to literally change her mind, [1] but this had the unintended side effect of altering her personality to an air-headed, vapid persona that put her feelings for the Archer above all other priorities. [2] When the Squadron finally learn this fact, Golden Archer is removed from the team, and Lark follows after him. [3] Lark disappeared for some time, next being seen at the end of the first year of the Squadron's Utopia program, having become separated from Golden Archer while still obsessive about him. [4]

When the Archer died under his later identity of the Black Archer,[5] Lady Lark seemed to slowly shake off the effects of the mental modification, and returned to active status with the Squadron.[volume & issue needed] Feeling she needed to increase her abilities to stand beside teammates that she perceived as more powerful, she began using the artificial wings that once belonged to deceased teammate Blue Eagle to gain the power of flight, and renamed herself Skylark.[volume & issue needed] With this new ability came greater confidence, and Skylark became far more aggressive in combat than she had been as Lady Lark.[volume & issue needed]

When returning to her native dimension with the team, she is injured and remanded to hospital care.[volume & issue needed]

An alternate version of Lady Lark appears in the Supreme Power: Hyperion mini-series.[volume & issue needed]

Lasher

Lasher is the name used by a symbiote in Marvel Comics. The symbiote, created by David Michelinie and Ron Lim, first appeared in Venom: Lethal Protector #4 (May 1993), and was named in Carnage, U.S.A. #2 (March 2012).[7] It was created as one of five symbiote "children" forcefully spawned from the Venom symbiote along with Riot, Agony, Phage and Scream. Lasher primarily uses symbiote tendrils.

The Lasher symbiote's first host was Ramon Hernandez, a mercenary hired by Carlton Drake's Life Foundation in San Francisco. Hernandez bonded with Lasher in conjunction with Scream (Donna Diego), Agony (Leslie Gesneria), Riot (Trevor Cole) and Phage (Carl Mach). After Lasher and his "siblings" are defeated by Spider-Man and Venom,[8] they kidnap Eddie Brock in an attempt to communicate with alien symbiotes in Chicago. When Brock refuses to aid them, Hernandez is by Diego, who developed schizophrenia due to Scream's influence.[9]

Lasher later merges with Riot, Phage, and Agony to form the Hybrid symbiote,[10] until a military group later separates them for the U.S. Government.

Lasher's second host was Marcus Simms, a Lieutenant assigned to the Mercury Team. While Cletus Kasady is on the loose in Colorado, Marcus trains with Lasher in specific tasks alongside Riot (Howard Odgen), Phage (Rico Axelson) and Agony (James Murphy).[11] While Simms and his teammates are later killed by Carnage in their secret base,[12] the four symbiotes bond to Deadpool to fight Carnage before bonding with Mercury Team's dog.[13]

After being possessed by Knull, the four symbiotes possess a bickering family, with Lasher taking the daughter Sadie. The four head to New York to help Carnage[14] and hunt Dylan Brock and Normie Osborn, but are defeated and separated from their respective hosts by the Maker.[15] Lasher fuses with Riot, Phage, and Agony once more to fight Andi Benton and Scream, but are defeated and forced to escape.[16]

The Lasher symbiote's fourth host is William, a senile, elderly individual. Manipulated by the Carnage symbiote, William is subsequently killed while Lasher takes a fifth host to help the symbiote enforcers participate in a conspiracy involving the Friends of Humanity. Nevertheless, they are defeated by Flash Thompson, Silence, and Toxin and taken into Alchemax's custody.[17]

Laughing Mask

The Laughing Mask (Dennis Burton) is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character is a Timely Comics Golden Age superhero which appeared in Daring Mystery Comics #2, 1940, and reappeared in The Twelve.[18][19] He was a deputy district attorney who took to murdering criminals in the vein of Marvel's later The Punisher, although the Laughing Mask used a phosphorescent mask to scare his victims prior to the kill.

For unknown reasons he became The Purple Mask (Daring Mystery Comics #3,4) and was the cover feature on Daring Mystery Comics #3. The first Purple Mask story was reprinted in Daring Mystery 70th Anniversary Special.

Michael J. Vasallo identifies The Falcon (appearing in Daring Mystery Comics #5-6) as a revamp of The Purple Mask.[20] That character was also a deputy district attorney, but his name was Carl Burgess and was, in terms of continuity, a distinct character.

Hulking sends Carol on a mission to K'in-Al, an experimental colony world where both Kree and Skrull could live together in peace and the first of its kind. Hulking reveals to Carol that the city was destroyed in an explosion and that his men had been in a stalemate with the one responsible ever since. Arriving on the scene, the suspect surrenders immediately and reveals herself to be Lauri-ell, a soldier who was artificially bred by Kree scientists using the DNA of two powerful warriors. Using the hammer, Carol sees a vision of her mother Mari-ell, confirming that she and Lauri-ell are half-sisters. Lauri-ell maintains that she is innocent but states that she understands that Carol's role as Accuser necessitates her arrest but Carol defies her orders and smuggles Lauri-ell to Earth while she conducts her investigation into the bombing.[21] Carol and her team discover that anti-Kree criminal Wastrel is responsible for destroying the colony and Lauri-ell's name is cleared. During a battle with the Cotati, Lauri-ell picks up the hammer when Carol is disabled and officially becomes the new Accuser.[22]

Leap-Frog

"Leap-Frog (comics)" redirects here. For the Marvel vehicle, see Leapfrog (comics).

Leap-Frog is the alias of two fictional supervillains appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The characters use a frog suit containing electrical coils on the soles of each of the two flippers which allow the wearer to leap great distances up to 60 ft (18 m) high or 100 ft (30 m) long. The boots' power source is worn on their backs like a backpack, and triggered via hidden buttons in their gloves. Additionally, the costume later had a strength-boosting exoskeleton, along with substantial internal padding and a computer-guided system for leaping accuracy. The first Leap-Frog (Vincent Patillo) appeared in Daredevil #25-26 (Feb.–March 1967), and was created by Stan Lee, Gene Colan, and Frank Giacoia. The second Leap-Frog (Buford Lange) debuted in Daredevil vol. 2 #16 and was created by Brian Michael Bendis and David W. Mack.

Vincent Patilio

Tired of his lack of success as an inventor of novelty items for toy companies, Vincent Patilio designed himself electrically powered coils that could be used for leaping great distances and incorporated them into a frog-like costume.[23]

Calling himself the Leap-Frog, Patilio was not known for being lucky in his criminal career. For example, he started by taking blind lawyer Matt Murdock hostage (Murdock being in fact the civilian identity of the superhero Daredevil).[24] He was recruited by Electro to serve in his Emissaries of Evil in revenge against Daredevil for previous defeats. However, Daredevil defeated them.[25] Other attempts at being a criminal failed at the hands of Daredevil, before the Leap-Frog was defeated by Iron Man and sent to jail.[26]

Patilio served his time in prison and then returned to his wife Rose and young son Eugene. Rose's salary kept the family financially solvent until she died of cancer.[27] Barely making enough money to support himself and his son, Patilio fell into despair. At this time, his son Eugene donned a version of his costume to attempt to create a heroic career as the "Frog-Man." Patilio was at first proud of his son for capturing the villain Speed Demon, but his pride turned to disapproval as Eugene continued to serve as a superhero. Patilio forbade his son to adventure as the Frog-Man.[28]

Patilio later went undercover in the villainess White Rabbit's gang on behalf of the police, which brought him into conflict with his son, who, as the Frog-Man, tried to take down the White Rabbit. Patilio ultimately defeated the White Rabbit with the help of his son and got a reward that considerably eased his financial worries.[29]

When the White Rabbit reappeared, she teamed up with the Walrus to create mayhem which would not stop until the Frog-Man surrendered to her. Spider-Man went after the two. Meanwhile, Vincent ordered Eugene to stay at home while he donned a revamped version of his costume, announced himself as the Frog-Man and joined Spider-Man. However, Eugene also donned his own costume and joined the struggle, and the trio managed to stop the criminals.[30]

Currently, Patilio remains retired from supervillainy.

Buford Lange

Buford Lange is an abusive father who lived in Hell's Kitchen with his wife Allison and their autistic son Timmy. He stumbled upon an abandoned Leap-Frog costume and began a short-lived criminal career by robbing small businesses. Lange fought Daredevil on a rooftop only to be electrocuted by Timmy, who did not want to see his hero, Daredevil, hurt. Lange fell off the rooftop and into a garbage truck on the street below.[31]

He was resurrected by the Hand and joined an assault on the S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier, which resulted in its destruction. He was then killed again by Wolverine, as were most of the supervillains and superheroes the Hand were using in the attack.[32]

Leather Boy

Further reading

Leather Boy (Gene Lorrene) is a fictional villain in Marvel Comics. The character, created by Dan Slott and Paul Pelletier, first appeared in G.L.A. #1 (June 2005).

Gene Lorrene is a BDSM obsessed individual who answered an ad left in the paper by Mister Immortal to join his team the Great Lakes Avengers as Leather Boy. When they discovered that he did not have any superpowers (he misread the ad), he was immediately booted off the team.[33] Much later, Leather Boy, now donning a Doctor Doom-inspired version of his outfit, learned of Squirrel Girl's indoctrination into the team and set out to take revenge. He broke into their base and snapped Mister Immortal's neck, though clearly he did not die, and killed Squirrel Girl's companion Monkey Joe. However, he was immediately stopped by Big Bertha who had just returned from a modeling session, and was defeated by being sat on by her. The rest of the team returned home and interrogated him where he revealed that Doctor Doom had battled the Fantastic Four in Greenwich Village hence why he was wearing a Doom inspired costume, it had been "all the rage" in his area. Leather Boy was dropped off at the police station shortly afterwards.[34]

Leather Boy got out, but Deadpool managed to catch him after the two somehow caused major destruction.[35]

Leather Boy once again tried to take revenge on Squirrel Girl by kidnapping Tippy-Toe at a Deadpool cosplay contest she was hosting. The real Deadpool, who had at that point gained total sympathy for her, caught Leather Boy and proceeded to allow the local squirrels to take revenge for their fallen comrade.[36]

After the accident behind Miles's superhuman abilities, Ganke is the first one with whom Miles shares this secret,[39] and is the one who immediately suggests that Miles use these new powers as the new Spider-Man.[38][40][41] When Marvel Comics ended the Ultimate Marvel imprint with the 2015 "Secret Wars" storyline,[42] in which the Marvel Universe was merged with other alternate universes (including the Ultimate Universe),[43][44][45] Molecule Man's efforts transported Miles, Ganke and their respective families and friends to the mainstream universe.[46] Ganke befriends Danika Hart, a YouTuber obsessed with Spider-Man. He acts as an indirect source for Danika, but asks to be called "Ned" rather than use his real name.[47][48]

Further reading

Left Hand (Diego Casseas) is a fictional supervillain from Marvel Comics. The character, created by Fabian Nicieza and Mark Bagley, first appeared in The New Warriors #16 (Oct. 1991).

He is a member of the Folding Circle. Diego Casseas' wife was one of the brides of the Dragon's Breadth cult that Diego's military unit, the "Half-Fulls", encountered in Cambodia during the Vietnam war. The cult had been breeding superhumans for centuries, hoping to tap into the vast power of the Well of All Things, a mystic portal in an ancient temple. The Half-Fulls became part of this breeding program, each member fathering a child with a cult member. Diego's wife died and their daughter was left comatose after the fall of an elevator. Diego, having studied sorcery, stole his daughter's powers ten years later and became the Left Hand.[53] The Left Hand had the ability to access and manipulate the energy of the Darkforce dimension. He used this ability to project blasts of extreme concussive force (sufficient to kill a human being with little effort), and to teleport himself and others over long distances.

Llan the Sorcerer

Llan the Sorcerer is an extradimensional entity and enemy of Alpha Flight, specifically Talisman. Once every 10,000 years, he manifests on Earth and attempts to corrupt, conquer & annex it into the Twisted Realms, a coalition of predominantly 'evil' dimensions (such as Svartalfheim). This plot culminates in opening The Gateway of Night; a magical nexus point the Twisted Realms can converge at & invade through, located in the northern wastes of Canada. However, by decree of Eternity, he must follow strict ritualistic rules of engagement against a mortal avatar of the Talisman power acting in Earth's defense. Despite ultimately being thwarted each time, his penchant for vast collateral damage was enough to implicate him in "the great devastation" 20,000 years before modern day. Elizabeth Twoyoungmen even implies that Canada's propensity towards eldritch mystical threats stems from Llan's routine incursions.[61]

Llyra

Main article: Llyra

Llyron

Llyron is the son of Llyra, and was genetically accelerated in age by Llyra so that he might take the crown of Atlantis. His mother Llyra was a Lemurian/human hybrid and a foe of Namor. She decided to conceive a child with Namor and introduce him as a successor to the Atlantean throne. After discovering that Namor was sterile, Llyra instead seduced a human named Leon McKenzie to create Llyron. Leon's father Lawrence was Namor's half-brother via their father Leonard, thus making Leon Namor's nephew and by extension Llyron is Namor's great nephew. The Atlantean Council voted Namor off the throne, and declared Llyron to be his rightful heir. However, the sorceress Morgan le Fay raised Atlantis from the ocean floor, and in the resulting chaos Llyron left with a number of Atlantean refugees to find a new home.[volume & issue needed]

Llyron is named after his maternal grandfather Llyron who was Lemurian. His maternal grandmother was a human named Rhonda Morris.[volume & issue needed]

He has resurfaced in the Thunderbolts series, as the leader of Fathom Five, a militant Atlantean splinter group determined to destroy humanity. Llyron was defeated and nearly killed by The Radioactive Man. He escaped and returned to Atlantis, only to discover that he had radiation poisoning, and furthermore had spread the poisoning among the Atlantean population. Radioactive Man was able to reverse the poisoning.[62]

Llyron has super-human strength, agility, endurance, and some resistance to physical and energy attacks. He also possesses gills, allowing him to breathe underwater as well as on land, and can swim incredibly fast compared to humans. Llyron is resistant to cold, presumably another adaptation to undersea life.

Tyler married Melissa Bowen and together they had a daughter named Tandy. As time went on, Melissa grew into a hateful materialistic woman, causing Tyler to leave his home for good.[63] He left his entire estate to her while he traveled to India to search for enlightenment.[64]

He studied under several gurus until he learned how to absorb and distribute light. This power caused the negative effect of killing people and thus would initially only use it on the ones who were dying. But as time went on, he started using it on innocents. He gained a following and earned the name the Lord of Light until one day he ran into his daughter and Tyrone Johnson now going by Cloak and Dagger. He temporarily cured Tyrone of the darkness and then tried to convert Tandy so that they could both reach godhood. Tyrone and Tandy battled Tyler who was attempting to drain the light from the latter when his daughter refused. Realizing what he had become, Tyler kills himself by diving into Tyrone's cloak and is devoured by the Predator who lived in the Darkforce Dimension.[65]

After picking Tandy up from ballet practice, he gets a call about an incident at the Roxxon Gulf Platform and says to shut it down. This leads to a car accident that causes Nathan to drive his car off the bridge. While Tandy survived, Nathan didn't which led to Roxxon confiscating his work from his home much to Melissa's devastation.[66] Nathan was mentioned when Melissa told Brigid O'Reilly that Nathan was posthumously fired from Roxxon and confiscated his work. Tyrone later experience a vision of Tandy being unable to do something as it shows Nathan getting suffocated by Roxxon's executives; this led to Tyrone's Darkforce abilities used to keep Tandy from running away.[67] A hallucination of him is seen when Tandy and Tyrone enter the mind of Ivan Hess (Nathan's co-worker). It is revealed that he had been calling Ivan shortly before the Roxxon Gulf Platform blew up.[68] It is also revealed that Nathan was far from perfect and would hit Melissa, crushing Tandy's view of him.[69] A vision of Nathan is seen when Tandy was out with Andre Deschaine.[70] Tandy enters the Darkforce Dimension and encounters repressed memories on when Nathan and Melissa had their heated arguments.[71] Andre's powers show Tandy in different lives: one is where both Nathan and Billy Johnson survived their encounters and the families grew close, and another has Nathan relocated to Silicon Valley while Tandy follows in his footsteps as a gifted student. The third one had Tandy who left her parents and survived on the streets.[72] Andre creates a manifestation of Nathan to mess with Tandy while Tyrone fights his perfect life counterpart. After a brief trade-off that was undone by Andre, Tandy told the manifestation of her father that he will be better than him as Tandy creates a light sword to use on Nathan's manifestation.[73]
