| powers = By consuming different mixtures of his transformation potion, Calvin Zabo can transform back and forth from his alter-ego of Mister Hyde. The chemical process is hormonal in nature, causing the cells of his anatomy to instantly manufacture mutated hormones that induce a physical transformation encompassing his entire figure. Miraculously, over 200 pounds of bone and muscle tissue are added to Zabo's body. After about 30 seconds of excrutiating pain, the entire metamorphosis is complete. Hyde and Zabo have different finger prints, while Hyde's facial structure is distorted to the point that he is frozen in a perpetual sneer. Zabo's personality is also distorted. As Hyde, he is overcome with savage anger and bestial ferocity. His body’s dense flesh provides some degree of protection and he possesses vast superhuman strength and stamina.

bio_text=  A brilliant but amoral medical research scientist, Calvin Zabo was always oddly intrigued by the story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. Believing the fictional account to be true, Zabo longed for the ability to unleash the bestial side of himself, and he dedicated his life to finding a chemical formula to enable him to do so. The research was incredibly expensive, so Zabo systematically robbed his various employers, avoiding criminal prosecution by simply changing employers before he could be caught. However, his reputation caught up with him. Zabo applied for work with a noted surgeon, Dr. Donald Blake, the secret identity of [[Thor (Thor Odinson)|Thor]], but was refused employment based on his past misdeeds. Zabo became furious and vowed vengeance upon the lame doctor. When he struck upon the formula several months later, Zabo transformed himself into Mister Hyde. He immediately sought revenge on Dr. Blake, but was defeated by Thor.
 
-
Hyde first joined with [[King Cobra|Cobra]] to gain revenge on Thor, but despite their defeat, they began a long partnership together. The next teamed together on behalf of Thor’s archenemy, [[Loki]]. On his urging, the two kidnapped Blake’s nurse and love interest, [[Foster, Jane|Jane Foster]] but were again defeated by Thor. The pair crossed the paths of many heroes, most notably [[Daredevil (Matthew Murdock)|Daredevil]] and [[Spider-Man (Peter Parker)|Spider-Man]]. Hyde only parted company once, teaming with the [[Venom (Mac Gargan)|Scorpion]] against [[Captain America (Steve Rogers)|Captain America]] and the [[Falcon (Sam Wilson)|Falcon]]. After yet another defeat from Daredevil landed the pair in Ryker’s Island prison, the Cobra used his powers to escape, willingly leaving Hyde behind. Enraged, Hyde swore vengeance on his former partner. 
 
-
 
-
He later was seen in the employ of [[Batroc]] the Leaper.  They succeeded in hijacking a [[Roxxon Oil]] supertanker and capturing Captain America, whom they chained to the prow of the ship. The tanker was filled with 50,000 tons of liquefied natural gas. As it cruised through the harbor, Batroc and Hyde set it on a collision coarse with the docks of New York City. The resulting explosion would likely lead to the total destruction of the entire metropolis. Batroc only wanted a huge ransom for the ship and Captain America. Hyde, however, wanted to go through with the plan and cared nothing for the money: he simply wanted Cap and the rest of New York City's population (particularly Cobra) dead. When Batroc realized this, he secretly loosened the chains holding Captain America, who freed himself and dove into the harbor. As Hyde was busy steering the ship, Batroc attacked him from behind. The former partners began a fight to the death. As Hyde began to squeeze the life out of Batroc, Captain America boarded the ship and attacked Hyde. During the fight, Hyde broke a pipe and was hit by a high-pressure stream of liquefied gas. Covered by a thick coating of the freezing liquid, Hyde fell over the side and sank in the harbor. Captain America tried to find him, but Hyde was gone. Cap caught Batroc, who tried to escape during the confusion, and returned the supertanker to Roxxon officials.
 
-
 
-
He returned again to stalk the Cobra, who was at this time seriously fearing for his life. Hyde was stopped by Spider-Man, after a long and ferocious battle, by getting knocked out a high window, plummeting to the street below. The indomitable Mister Hyde was not killed, but merely stunned. He and the Cobra were then easily captured and taken into police custody. Another similar rampage was stopped yet again by Spider-Man with the help of the [[Black Cat]].
 
-
 
-
[[Baron Zemo (Helmut)|Baron Zemo]] later recruited Mister Hyde for his [[Masters of Evil]]. While the [[Avengers]] were away, Zemo led the Masters of Evil in a successful take-over of the Avengers' Mansion and captured [[Jarvis, Edwin|Jarvis]], the butler. Zemo, in particular, was used to savagely beat [[Hercules]] into a coma. Zemo also turned the hostages (Jarvis, the [[Black Knight (Dane Whitman)|Black Knight]], and Captain America) over to the cruel hands of Mister Hyde, who started beating the butler to death. Hyde was having great fun, until the Black Knight managed to free himself and Cap, fighting Hyde until the rest of the Avengers arrived and brought the Masters of Evil down.
 
-
 
-
In the meantime, Cobra had become the leader of the [[Serpent Society]]. As part of re-inventing himself for this new position, Cobra sought out the one person that he still feared above all-- Mister Hyde. After going one-on-one with his former partner, Cobra succeeded in besting him. Flushed with new confidence, he renamed himself King Cobra, and the long grudge match between the two seemed to be over.
 
-
 
-
When Mister Hyde ran afoul of the monstrous Hulk, he received a head wound and Calvin Zabo found himself unable to transform into Hyde. Zabo made his way to a Manhattan bar, where he happened to insult a waitress. The huge leader of a biker gang saw the incident, and he threw Zabo out of the bar. Determined to have revenge, Zabo reentered the bar and hit the biker over the head with a bottle. This time Zabo threw himself out the window in an attempt to escape the enraged bikers. Zabo fled to a nearby parking garage and hid. Meanwhile, Dan Ketch (then, [[Ghost Rider (Daniel Ketch)|Ghost Rider]]) arrived at the garage. Zabo was able to become Mister Hyde once more, but Ghost Rider was on hand to save the bikers and innocent bystanders from his rampage. As the police arrived, both Hyde and the Ghost Rider vowed revenge, going their separate ways.
 
-
 
-
At some point earning the enmity of the criminal [[Eel (Edward Lavell)|Eel]], Hyde unknowingly found himself a target of revenge. Hyde had befriended a young runaway, Angela Paris, but the Eel secretly murdered her, framing Hyde.  Mister Hyde was given counsel by the lawyer Matt Murdock (a.k.a. Daredevil, whose powers told him Hyde was innocent but whose conscious refused to allow the villain to be convicted of something he didn’t do. As Daredevil investigated, he uncovered the Eel’s involvement and managed to take the Eel into court to clear Hyde’s name. Hyde was released, but Daredevil confronted him and warned him that he would be forever watched by the vigilant hero.
 
-
 
-
More recently, Hyde was seen among those imprisoned at Ryker’s Island. He was used as an informant by [[Toxin]]’s alter-ego, Pat Mulligan, who was tracking his old partner, Cobra.

Soon after, a time displaced [[Gambit]] and [[Courier (Jacob Gavin Jr)|Courier]] approached Sinister for help. Sinister agreed to help them, as long as he could have a DNA sample from Courier. This DNA sample allowed Sinister to replicate Courier shape shifting abilities, within Sinister’s own body.
+
-
 
+
-
By the early 20th Century, Sinister had cracked the genetic genome and was willing to share the information with Herbert Edgar Wyndham, who would later become the [[High Evolutionary]].
+
-
 
+
-
During World War II, Sinister worked alongside the [[Nazi Party|Nazis]], collecting as many blood samples as he could. It was during this time that he first saw [[Sub-Mariner]], and was inspired to create a clone of Namor. The clone was experiment [[N2]] and had varied success against the original Namor but was defeated by [[Captain America (Steve Rogers)|Captain America]].
+
-
 
+
-
Some time later, Sinister recruited Gambit to gather together the Marauders and ordered the massacre of the [[Morlocks]]. Sinister cloned [[Phoenix (Jean Grey)|Jean Grey]] in the form of Madelyne Pryor, so that [[Cyclops (Scott Summers)|Cyclops]] would have a child with her, which Sinister would view as the ultimate mutant. Ultimately, Cyclops rejected Pryor when Jean returned from stasis, and the youth would be carried to the future, where he would return to present era as [[Cable]]. Sinister's machinations would lead to the event known as Inferno, where Cyclops supposedly killed Sinister with an optic blast, although Sinister resurfaced alive and well, when he revealed that there was a third Summers brother.
+
-
 
+
-
Sinister was involved in [[Stryfe]]'s attempted assassination of Xavier,, trading Cyclops & Jean Grey to Stryfe in exchange for their DNA. However, Stryfe actually gave Sinister the Legacy Virus, which would terrorize mutant (and eventually human) life, and lead to the deaths of several mutants.
+
-
 
+
-
Sinister later involved himself with [[X-Man|Nate Grey]] and the mutant [[Threnody]]. He joined the reestablished [[Weapon X]] program as Doctor Robert Windsor, claiming to help mutants escape Weapon X's mutant concentration camp "Neverland," but in reality, he took them to be his test subjects.

bio_text=Eddie Brock was the son of a brilliant scientist who teamed with Richard Parker to create a protoplasmic dip nicknamed “The Suit”, designed as a cure for cancer; but the Suit’s potential as a weapon tempted project financiers Trask Industries, who seized control of the project. Mostly unaware of his father’s troubles, Eddie befriended Parker’s son, the slightly younger Peter. When both sets of parents were killed in a tragic plane crash, Eddie went to live with his grandparents and lost contact with Peter for years. Eddie’s grandfather eventually gave him a frozen sample of the Suit, hidden away by Ed Brock Sr. Eddie threw himself into a study of his father’s work, seeing it as a way to connect with his lost parent. This pursuit eventually led him to Empire State University and a close relationship with Doctor Curt Conners, who helped Eddie study the Suit, dubbed the Venom Project.

[[Image:Ultimate venom inline.jpg|thumb|left]]While Eddie’s academic career seemed to take off, his personal life was in shambles. Plagued by a quick temper and an inability to connect with women on any level, Eddie became isolated. When his old friend Peter Parker contacted him, he felt a rush of enthusiasm: here, at last, was someone with whom he could truly bond. Eddie shared the secret of the Suit with Peter, but was shocked when he saw a black-suited Spider-Man on the news shortly thereafter. Already frustrated by his failed attempt to seduce Gwen Stacy, an angry Eddie raced back to the lab, where he caught Peter taking the rest of the dip, intent on destroying it. Expressing a deep sense of betrayal, Eddie felt that Peter was stealing the only thing his father had left him. Parker tried to warn Eddie of the Suit’s dangers, including its powerful hunger for violence, but Eddie was unconvinced. After Parker left to destroy the Suit, Eddie pulled a second sample out of storage and allowed the black liquid to flow over him. The intense pain may have mentally damaged Eddie, who immediately killed a female custodian and two campus security guards. In his new form, Brock began stalking Peter and finally lured him into battle. Eddie felt that the Suit craved Peter and he wanted to force Peter to take it from him. Caught in a crossfire of police bullets and accidentally electrocuted by a downed power line, Brock was seemingly killed; but his belongings later disappeared from his dorm room, leading Peter to believe that his old friend is still alive.

| powers =  The Juggernaut originally possessed untold mystical power which enhanced his strength to an unknown degree and made him a seemingly irresistible, unstoppable being.  Once he began to walk in a given direction, no obstacle or force on Earth was able to stop him.  Some obstacles, for example many tons of rock, or forces such as plasma-discharge cannons slowed his pace considerably, but nothing stopped him permanently from advancing. The Juggernaut was, however, vulnerable to magical forces of sufficient strength.
+
-
 
+
-
Besides giving him vast superhuman strength, the mystical energy of Cyttorak gave the Juggernaut an extraordinary degree of resistance to all forms of injury.  The Juggernaut could also shield himself even further from injury by mentally surrounding himself with a force field.  Enveloped by this field, the Juggernaut had been seen to survive the fiery explosion of a truck transporting a huge quantity of oil without any injury whatsoever.  The Juggernaut could survive indefinitely without food, water, or oxygen thanks to his being sustained by his mystical energies alone.
+
-
 
+
-
In the past, the Juggernaut has temporarily possessed telepathic abilities and certain mystical powers, all of which he has since lost. Recently, however, the Juggernaut has been stripped of this mystical energy, including his personal force field.  He still possesses superhuman strength, endurance and durability due to years of absorbing the mystical energies of Cyttorak, but the current upper limit of these traits is as yet unknown.
+
-
| paraphernalia = The Juggernaut wears a helmet fashioned from an unknown mystical metal found in the Crimson Cosmos dimension of Cyttorak. The Juggernaut subsequently fashioned a skullcap from scraps of the metal used to construct the helmet.  The Juggernaut originally wore a suit of armor that he could summon around himself at will from the Crimson Cosmos.  After being stripped of his powers, the Juggernaut took to wearing a suit of armor that resembles his original but is fashioned from unstable molecules.

Without his helmet and skullcap, the Juggernaut is vulnerable to psionic attacks against his mind.

bio_text= Cain Marko’s mother died when he was very young, leaving him to live a life of psychological and physical torment at the hands of his abusive father, atomic researcher Doctor Kurt Marko. Following the death of his colleague Doctor Brian Xavier, Kurt married Xavier's widow Sharon and he and Cain took up residence in the Xavier's Westchester mansion with Sharon and her young son, Charles.
+
-
 
+
-
Kurt seemingly preferred Charles to his own son, which consumed Cain with jealousy and he took to bullying his stepbrother. Cain's father continued to beat him, but Cain did not suffer the abuse alone. Inexperienced at the use of his emerging mutant telepathic powers, Charles shared the pain and inadvertently learned of Cain's jealousy towards him. This only ensured that Cain would forever hate Charles for his unwitting betrayal.
+
-
 
+
-
After an argument with his father, Cain accidentally caused a fire to engulf his father's home laboratory. Kurt saved Charles first, and then went back for Cain, reinforcing Cain's belief that his father loved Charles more than he. Kurt died of smoke inhalation, but not before warning Charles to always beware of Cain.
+
-
 
+
-
Soon after, both Cain and Charles were drafted into military service and served in same unit. When Cain deserted under fire during a mission in Asia, Charles pursued, hoping to convince his stepbrother to return of his own accord. Charles followed Cain into a cave that housed the lost temple of [[Cyttorak]], a powerful mystical entity. Therein, Cain unearthed the [[Crimson Gem of Cyttorak]] and, upon touching it, was transformed by its mystical energies into a human juggernaut. A subsequent cave-in buried Cain, and Charles believed his stepbrother dead.
+
-
 
+
-
[[image: juggernaut01.jpg|left|200px|thumb]]Cain eventually dug himself free and made his way to America where he sought to use his newfound strength to exact revenge on Charles. However, he was defeated on every attempt by the X-Men, a team of mutant adventurers fighting to preserve Charles’ dream of peaceful coexistence between humans and mutants. Cain then formed a criminal partnership with the mutant mercenary Black Tom Cassidy, and the pair soon became two of the world’s most wanted criminals.
+
-
 
+
-
After many years of villainy, Cain was teleported to an alternate universe where he helped form the team of costumed adventurers known as the eXiles. Cain was eventually returned to his own universe, whereupon he encountered the psionic being known as [[Onslaught]] who used his enormous powers to physically hurl Cain from Canada to New York. There, he encountered the X-Men once more and was taken to Charles’ mansion for medical treatment. On waking, Cain sought out Charles to warn him of Onslaught. To his horror, Cain discovered that Onslaught was Charles who tore the Ruby of Cyttorak from Cain’s chest and trapped him within it. Therein, Cain discovered an entire plane of existence and encountered a corrupt aspect of Cyttorak. The mystic named [[Gomurr]] the Ancient sought to help free Cain from the jewel, imbuing him with the gem's power. Using his newfound strength, Cain destroyed the aspect and was freed from the gem, returning with more power than ever before. Ignoring Gomurr's warning that he was fated to destroy everything and everyone in his path, Cain returned to his villainous ways.
+
-
 
+
-
[[image: juggernaut03.jpg|left|200px|thumb]]Soon after, Cain heard a rumor of a second Cyttorak Gem, and, coveting its power, he returned to the Temple where he found the first. However, it was a trap set by a Cult who sought the power of the Ruby for themselves, draining Cain's power to energize their Ruby. With the assistance of Black Tom and the X-Men, Cain claimed the power of the second Ruby, but it was possessed by an evil spirit which took over his body. The spirit made Cain smash through dimensional walls in an attempt to destroy its nemesis, but the natives of the other dimension ultimately freed Cain from its possession.
+
-
 
+
-
Cain eventually discovered that his becoming the Juggernaut was no accident. He had been compelled to enter the temple of Cyttorak, who was one of a pantheon of eight gods that each had an avatar on Earth. These avatars, named the Exemplars, enlisted Cain’s aid in constructing a machine that would remove humanity's free will, thus allowing their gods to rule the Earth. With Charles’ help, Cain regained control of his psyche and foiled the Exemplars’ plan.
+
-
 
+
-
Cain was again cast as a hero when the sentient spaceship [[Prosh]] returned to Earth to gather a group of costumed adventurers for a journey through time to uncover the keys to preserving human evolution. Whilst in the past, Cain was shown that despite all his yearning for power, he had squandered his mystical abilities. When the team reassembled in the present, they fought and defeated the alien entity named the [[Stranger]] who sought to control the natural evolution of mankind.
+
-
 
+
-
[[image: juggernaut02.jpg|left|200px|thumb]]Soon after, Cain was drafted into the service of the Commission for Superhuman Activities as a super-powered bounty hunter. However, this new career was short-lived, and Cain eventually found himself working alongside Black Tom once more. Soon after, Cain requested the X-Men's help in stopping Tom, whose plant-based powers had resurfaced and flared out of control. After a brief clash with the X-Men, it came to light that Cain had been stripped of Cyttorak's mystical energies and was no longer invulnerable. Tom was defeated, but not before he knocked Cain into the surrounding waters. A young aquatic mutant named [[Pare, Samuel|Samuel Pare]] saved Cain's life, forming a strong bond of friendship between the unlikely pair. When Cain was invited by his stepbrother to take up residence at the mansion, he accepted and soon came to appreciate his newfound lot in life. After assisting the X-Men on a mission, Cain joined the team.
+
-
 
+
-
After Sammy was returned home to Canada, Cain defied a restraining order to visit the boy. When he learned that Sammy’s father was physically abusing him, he flew into a rage and accidentally injured Sammy’s mother. [[Alpha Flight]] arrived to defuse the situation and, on seeing a terrified young Samuel, Cain surrendered himself and was taken into custody. Incarcerated in a holding facility designed to contain superhuman criminals, Cain was appointed a lawyer in the form of Jennifer Walters, the [[She-Hulk]]. Whilst Charles discussed a plan of legal action with Walters, another of the facility's inmates - the [[Rhino]] - broke free, setting Cain loose in the process. Rather than escape, Cain stayed and defeated the Rhino in order to save the life of a guard. This heroic act, combined with the Canadian government's less than ideal incarceration methods, was enough to make a case for Cain and endear him to Walters.
+
-
 
+
-
Soon after, Cain and Walters began a romantic relationship that was cut short by the arrival of Cyttorak's new avatar. With Walters’ aid, Cain defeated the new Juggernaut, but the damage he had caused during the battle forced Walters to rethink her feelings for him. An impassioned plea from Sammy’s mother led to Cain receiving a reduced sentence, as well as extradition back to the United States. Cain continued to serve as a member of the X-Men whilst undertaking community service and anger management therapy.

| powers = The Sandman possesses the ability to convert all or part of his body into a sand-like substance by mental command. His brain has attained subliminal awareness of all granulated particles of his body. Through conscious effort, he can affect the degree of molecular cohesion between the numerous adjoining surfaces of his particles and thus cause locomotion of discrete volumes, down to the individual grains. His radically mutagenically altered body composition and increased density enable him to compact or loosen the particles of sand that make up his form. Consequently, the Sandman can become as hard as sandstone, or disperse his body so that he becomes invulnerable to physical attacks. He can shape his sand-state body into any continuous shape he can imagine. He can project his sand particles outward at high speeds and, when in the shape of a bulky object, with the impact of a large sandbag.
+
-
 
+
-
The Sandman is vulnerable to temperatures over 3,400 degrees Fahrenheit. Such temperatures can cause his highly impure silicate composition to fuse into amorphous silicate (glass). The Sandman maintains mental control of the particles of which his body is composed so that he can reform his scattered grains unless a substantial portion of his body mass has been isolated. Apparently, he can also convert common grains of sand around him into constituents of his body to replenish portions he might lose track of during battle. In this manner, he can increase his overall size and volume (to some as yet unknown limit), or that of his limbs.
+
-
 
+
-
There appears to be no limit to how long the Sandman can remain in his sand-state. If he were to be rendered unconscious while in his sand-state, he would remain in that state, although the relaxing of his control over his particles would cause him to become an amorphous pile of sand.
+
-
 
+
-
The Sandman's mind continues to function in astral form even when he has turned his head into sand and even when the particles of sand that composed his brain are widely scattered. The limit to how far the particles of his brain can be dispersed before he is unable to reassemble is not yet known.

| paraphernalia = Marko briefly used a suit that he created with [[Mister Fantastic|Reed Richards]]' stolen equipment, that he used to mix chemicals with his sand to create new affects. Some of the chemicals could make his sand into a slippery puddle, adhere him to vertical walls, and coat him with a substance that would turn into a poisonous powder when heated by the [[Human Torch (Johnny Storm)|Human Torch]]'s flame.

bio_text= William Baker was born in a rough neighborhood in New York. Abandoned by his father when he was three-years old, William stole and cheated his way through adolescence. Expelled after accepting a bribe to throw a football game, he was accepted by a gang that ran extortion and protection rackets and adopted the alias Flint Marko.
+
-
 
+
-
He soon became very successful in the New York criminal underworld, but was arrested, convicted, and forced to spend many years in solitary confinement. Upon his released he discovered that his long time girlfriend Marcy Conroy had left him for Vic Rollins, another member of his gang. In a rage he got revenge on Rollins and started a lone citywide crime spree. Marko was captured and placed in a maximum-security wing at Ryker's Island prison but escaped through an unguarded drainage tunnel. With the FBI and police on his tail, Marko traveled south and sought refuge in a place where he was unlikely to be found: an atomic testing site near Savannah, Georgia. As he rested on a nearby beach, the experimental reactor's steam system exploded, bombarding him with a massive dose of radiation and apparently bonding his body with the sand. Awakening after a brief period of unconsciousness, Marko discovered his newly acquired ability to transform into a sand-like substance he could manipulate and reshape at will. Now easily able to elude authorities, the Sandman was born.
+
-
 
+
-
The Sandman embarked on a criminal career that led him into conflict with [[Spider-Man (Peter Parker)|Spider-Man]], the [[Fantastic Four]], [[Hulk]], and many other heroes. After failing to defeat Spider-Man as a member of the [[Sinister Six]] under [[Doctor Octopus (Otto Octavius)|Doctor Octopus]], he joined forces with the [[Wizard]] who provided him with a belt that enabled him to produce a variety of dangerous and deadly effects through the injection of various chemicals. The Sandman and the Wizard then teamed with the [[Trapster]] to become the core members of the original [[Frightful Four]]. The team encountered many defeats at the hands of the Fantastic Four and they soon broke up. Marko later broke out of prison with the Wizard's help, and broke into the Baxter Building, briefly teaming up with [[Blastaar]] when he first escaped from the [[Negative Zone]].

Marko's criminal career was struck a major blow when he joined forces with [[Hydro-Man]] and in a freak mishap combined to form a grotesque, mud-like monster called the "Mud-Thing". The creature was subdued by the authorities and transported to a laboratory in Manhattan were scientists sought to analyze the composition of the unusual mud, but determined with the instruments at their disposal that it was inanimate. They decided to seal the substance in a container and dispose of it. As a delayed effect of the analytic procedures, the mud spontaneously separated into the two criminals, who burst free of their container.
+
-
 
+
-
The ordeal so traumatized Marko that he was stricken with a troubled conscience. Striking up a surprising friendship with the [[Thing (Benjamin Grimm)|Thing]] of the Fantastic Four, the Sandman soon talked of abandoning crime. When he encountered Spider-Man fighting the [[Enforcers]], the Sandman made good on his intentions and rescued the wall-crawler. Still a wanted man, the Sandman adopted the alias Sylvester Mann. He rented a room in Coney Island from a suburban family and decided to reform earning money as a contract worker for [[Silver Sable]] as a member of her [[Wild Pack]]. He joined the [[Outlaws]] for their brief time in existence, aiding Spider-Man. Though there was a period of suspicion as to whether his intentions were noble, he gained the public's trust and became a reserve member for the [[Avengers]] along with Spider-Man. Granted a pardon for his crimes, he returned to his birth name of William Baker. After he helped the Avengers defeat the sorceress [[Morgan Le Fay]] and stop the theft of military equipment, a minor misunderstanding with [[Captain America (Steve Rogers)|Captain America]] caused by his undisciplined temperament lead to his resignation from the reserve Avengers. However, the Sandman was determined to remain reformed. When Doctor Octopus blackmailed him into rejoining the Sinister Six, the Sandman turned against his former ally as soon as he had the chance.
+
-
 
+
-
Feeling the loss of his partner-in-crime, the Wizard kidnapped Baker and forcibly subjected him to a machine that amplified the underlying dark side of its subject's personality. The violent Flint Marko regained consciousness, and believed he had faked his well-intentioned heroics. He was not to be the Wizard's lackey.
+
-
 
+
-
The now-villainous Sandman re-formed the Sinister Six to seek revenge on Doctor Octopus, but [[Venom (Eddie Brock)|Venom]], turned on his teammates and took a large bite from Sandman. Weakened and poisoned by Venom, Baker began to lose bits of himself until he eventually dissipated. Delirious from his condition, he sought out Spider-Man to exact his final vengeance. In his weakened state he was unable to defeat the wall-crawler. With his last bit of strength, he made peace with Spider-Man and asked that he say goodbye to his mother for him. The despondent Sandman then lost cohesion and was washed away into a New York City storm drain.
+
-
 
+
-
The Sandman's dispersed body was eventually washed up onto a beach, where his consciousness remained in a coma-like state. Eventually, a television rock concert awoke Sandman, who began to attack the concert-goers. Eventually, the Sandman gathered enough strength to re-form his body, but his mind was still heavily damaged.
+
-
 
+
-
The Sandman began to split into different versions of himself - his good side, his evil side, his inner child, and his feminine side - each taking on a different aspect of his emotions. With the aid of Spider-Man, the Sandman was able to reabsorb his duplicates and returned to his single, villainous form. However, Sandman once again partnered with Spider-Man. With his father [[Baker, Floyd|Floyd Baker]] facing imminent execution for the murder of a homeless vagrant (described as bearing the likeness of Spider-Man's long-dead "Uncle Ben") the Sandman worked to rescue or exonerate his father. Spider-Man and the Sandman discovered the true murderer was the monstrous [[Chameleon (Earth-9500)|Chameleon]] of the future year 2211 from [[Earth-9500]]. Floyd Baker narrowly missed execution by the electric chair, and was exonerated (though ungrateful of his son's efforts).

bio_text= When Charles Xavier telepathically rendered Magneto catatonic, he unknowingly absorbed Magneto’s dark ego. Magneto’s negative emotions merged with Xavier’s suppressed urges, forming a powerful, dormant psionic entity - the self-dubbed Onslaught. Rising anti-mutant hysteria, Legacy Virus casualties and Xavier’s failure to rehabilitate Sabretooth all increased Xavier’s frustration. When anti-mutant humans killed young mutant [[Hogan, Dennis|Dennis Hogan]] near the Xavier Institute, Onslaught finally awakened within Xavier, and it decided to achieve Xavier’s dream of peaceful mutant/human coexistence by utilizing the interdimensional firm [[Landau, Luckman & Lake]]’s warp portals to bond humanity into a collective intelligence. To this end, Onslaught attempted to generate fear to heighten psionic activity. In Vancouver, B.C., Onslaught sought to recruit Xavier’s step-brother [[Juggernaut|Cain Marko]], the criminal Juggernaut. When Marko declined, Onslaught mentally blocked Juggernaut from remembering its true identity, and magnetically threw him to New Jersey.
+
-
 
+
-
Learning the mutant-hunting Sentinels could store psionic energy, Onslaught abducted scientists to create a Sentinel army. Soon after, Xavier encountered [[X-Man]] (Nate Grey) on the astral plane, who pulled Xavier’s astral form into the physical world. Onslaught thus escaped Xavier’s mind, but was still “tethered” to Xavier. To assist disseminating his hyper-psionic energy, Onslaught had the mutant teleporter Gateway abduct the psionic mutant [[Chamber]], sent the armored mutant Post to “test” the X-Men and [[Cable]], and recruited and empowered other mutants such as Blob, Mimic and Holocaust. Now fully possessing Xavier, Onslaught revealed Xavier’s suppressed darker memories to [[Phoenix (Jean Grey)|Jean Grey]], hoping to recruit her Phoenix Force experience to gain more power. Rejecting Onslaught, Jean removed the Juggernaut’s mental block, discovering that Onslaught was Xavier. Onslaught then trapped Juggernaut’s consciousness inside Marko’s own empowering Ruby of Cyttorak, and created the child-like psionic projection Charlie to befriend and capture vastly powerful mutant child [[Richards, Franklin|Franklin Richards]].
+
-
 
+
-
As Xavier, Onslaught attempted to lead the X-Men to war against humans. When the X-Men resisted, Onslaught revealed itself and attempted to destroy them. Onslaught then mentally enslaved the [[Hulk]] and sent him after Cable, but Cable and [[Storm]] freed the Hulk. Onslaught captured X-Man, adding both his and Franklin’s psionic powers to its own. It sent the Sentinels to Manhattan to sow panic, created a Central Park citadel, and unleashed an electromagnetic pulse. The [[X-Men]], [[Fantastic Four]], [[Avengers]] and even [[Doctor Doom]] opposed Onslaught, and after Thor freed Xavier, Onslaught became even more powerful.
+
-
 
+
-
Concluding that no one was worthy to live, Onslaught decided to obliterate humanity and created a second sun. While [[Thor]] and Storm sought to minimize the resultant climactic damage, the Hulk had Jean Grey turn off his human mind, resulting in a rage-fuelled Hulk who shredded Onslaught’s psi-armor. Onslaught exploded, separating the Hulk from his human side, and became a being of pure mental energy. Thor began disrupting Onslaught’s form from within, and the other Avengers, the Fantastic Four, and several non-mutant allies weakened it further. As Onslaught dissipated, both Franklin and X-Man were rescued. Though believed dead, the heroes were actually transported to a pocket universe subconsciously created by Franklin where they briefly encountered a manifestation of Onslaught, heralding his future return.

bio_text= Aleksei Sytsevich was just another thug in the Russian Mafia, grasping at dreams of easy money, and headed for a short brutal life. Seduced by promises of wealth and power, Aleksei underwent a life-threatening series of chemical and radiation treatments to transform him after several months into the superhumanly strong agent for a collective of professional spies - in part, to support his family. Aleksei's powerful armor permanently bonded to his form, was modeled after the hide of a rhinoceros. Two scientists named Igor and Georgi chose this form, both for its visual impact and in recognition of the fact that the rhino is the result of countless generations of evolution towards the ultimate form for armored assault. They selected Aleksei for his muscular physique and low intelligence, which they believed would insure his loyalty.
+
-
 
+
-
Given the code-name Rhino, his first mission was to kidnap astronaut [[Jameson, John|John Jameson]], son of [[Daily Bugle (Building)|Daily Bugle]] publisher [[Jameson, J. Jonah|J. Jonah Jameson]], and sell him to the highest bidder. He received intensive sub-hypnotic training in American English and false citizenship papers bearing the name Alex O'Hirn. Feeling cocky, he turned on his benefactors, destroying their headquarters, and attempted to abduct Jameson under his own initiative. As the Rhino made his way towards New York City, [[Spider-Man (Peter Parker)|Spider-Man]] began to formulate how to defeat this apparently unstoppable foe. His discovered two key factors: once charging, the Rhino cannot change directions or easily halt his advance. Second, Aleksei is rather dumb. Spider-Man deduced that if he could avoid a direct hit from the Rhino's horn, his superior tactical skills and agility would always leave him the final victor in any fair fight.
+
-
 
+
-
Spider-Man defeated the Rhino sending the villain to a special state correctional hospital where he was kept under heavy sedation. After a few weeks, the Rhino broke out of the hospital and escaped, seeking revenge of Spider-Man. This time, Spider-Man defeated him using a specially-formulated version of his web fluid, devised with the aid of [[Lizard (Curtis Connors)|Dr. Curt Connors]], that contained encapsulated acid pellets whose containers dissolved upon contact with air. The special webbing rendered the Rhino's costume weak and brittle, which deprived him of needed impact resistance. The Rhino was recaptured, tried, and convicted.
+
-
[[Image:Rhino01.jpg|thumb|left|260px]]
+
-
The Rhino served a commuted sentence and was discharged. When he was released, the spies who had transformed him, apparently showing no sign of malice towards his betrayal, approached him with the offer to strengthen him using a gamma-ray process. They had also devised an improved, acid-resistant material rhinoceros suit. Having no other prospects of gainful employment, the Rhino accepted the offer. The new series of radiation treatments were successful and doubled the Rhino's previous strength level. The augmented Rhino's first mission was to abduct [[Hulk (Bruce Banner)|Dr. Bruce Banner]], an authority on biochemical gamma-ray experimentation, also known as the Hulk. The spies planned to coerce Banner into developing an army of gamma-ray treated superhuman assassins. When the Rhino tried to abduct Banner, Banner transformed into the Hulk and overpowered the Rhino. Again, Rhino was sent to a state facility under heavy sedation and high security.
+
-
 
+
-
The Rhino's battle with the Hulk came to the attention of the [[Leader]], one of the Hulk's foremost enemies, who decided that further gamma-ray treatments would give the Rhino enough power to overcome the Hulk. The Leader freed the Rhino from the state facility, and further increased his strength by gamma-ray bombardments. The Leader then dispatched the Rhino to crash the wedding of Bruce Banner and [[Ross-Banner, Betty|Betty Ross]]. Succeeding in interrupting the wedding, the Rhino engaged in battle with the Hulk when the Leader accidentally shot him with a radiation blast intended for the Hulk. The Rhino turned on the Leader and caused the Leader's escape module to explode. (Banner's wedding to Ross was subsequently delayed for several years.) The Rhino was left comatose but otherwise unharmed and taken to a state hospital. The Leader used his mental energies to revive him, and reoutfitted him to battle the Hulk once again - this time with the Leader's mind controlling his every move. When the Leader released the Rhino, Aleksei was aboard a space shuttle battling the Hulk. The fight continued until the shuttle crash landed on the [[High Evolutionary]]'s artificial planet on the opposite side of the sun called [[Counter-Earth (High Evolutionary)|Counter-Earth]]. While the ship automatically repaired its damage, the Leader telemetrically signaled for it to return. The Hulk fought his way back on, the Rhino in tow. When the ship crash landed back on Earth, the Rhino lay buried in the wreckage for some time until he revived.
+
-
 
+
-
The Rhino was then recruited by [[Egghead]], as part of the criminal scientist's [[Emissaries of Evil]]. The Rhino was paired off with [[Solarr]] and sent to [[Doctor Strange (Stephen Strange)|Dr. Strange]]'s sanctum to fetch the Star of Capistan, a jewel of power that Egghead mistakenly thought Strange had. The mission brought the Rhino in conflict with his old nemesis, the Hulk, as well as the [[Defenders]]. The Rhino was ultimately defeated by the [[Red Rajah]], a being in possession of Dr. Strange. He later battled and was defeated by [[Doc Samson]], and subsequently taken for study to [[Project: PEGASUS]], an enormous energy research facility in upstate, New York. After months of observations, the Rhino joined in a mass escape attempt along with fellow prisoners [[Moonstone (Karla Sofen)|Moonstone]], [[Blackout (Marcus Daniels)|Blackout]], and  [[Electro (Maxwell Dillon)|Electro]]. The escape was thwarted by the [[Avengers]]. While being transferred to another facility, the Rhino was freed by the [[Miracle Man]] who wanted the Rhino to help him regain his mystical powers. The Rhino did not wish to be freed, however, preferring to seek medical treatment to remove his costume which had affixed itself to his skin following he fiery shuttle crash. With the aid of the [[Thing (Benjamin Grimm)|Thing]], the Rhino opposed the Miracle Man, and accompanied the Thing back to PEGASUS where they again attempted to transfer him to the medical facility as arranged.

The Rhino was hired by the [[Green Goblin (Harry Osborn)]] hoping to earn cash to return to his homeland and convince his family to return back to America with him. Hired to scare Peter Parker, the Rhino was severely beaten by a furious Spider-Man. The Rhino's family was disgusted to learn the means Aleksei was using to gather funds.

When the treatments failed to restore him to normal, the Rhino escaped and joined the [[MACH-IV|Beetle]]'s [[Sinister Syndicate]] to earn money to finance further operations. With teammates [[Speed Demon]], [[Hydro-Man]], and Boomerang, the Syndicate nearly overpowered Spider-Man until the timely rescue of the then-reformed [[Sandman (William Baker)|Sandman]] working for [[Silver Sable]].

The Syndicate reunited again, though soon fell apart due to the machinations of [[Beetle (Leila Davis)|Leila Davis]] seeking revenge against the Beetle, whom she held partly responsible for the death of her husband, the [[Ringer (Anthony Davis)|Ringer]]. Rhino hoped again to use earnings in the Syndicate to remove his suit. The team fell apart and the Rhino, working for the [[Kingpin]], was double-crossed. Rhino, overhearing the scientists who were instructed not to take remove the suit, kidnapped one of the scientist's children, and had his suit finally removed. The Kingpin, not one to be outdone, sent a fake-explosive package to the now more vulnerable Aleksei, letting him know he could always kill him if need be. Rhino, missing the excitement in life, requested [[Hammer, Justin|Justin Hammer]] to make him a new removable suit.

Rhino later found himself broke and alone during the holiday season. He stole a Santa Claus costume and made people "give" him money. He agreed to be a mall Santa, but became volatile when the kids did not get along with him. The Hulk was there, and a fight ensued in which the Rhino gored the Hulk. However, with a little girl crying, the Rhino spent the next few hours at the mall as Santa on much better behavior.

The Rhino even joined a minor league baseball team, wearing a suit of "Mecha-Rhino" armor, resulting in two clashes with the Hulk.

In the Great Game, a gambling operation run by a group of wealthy individuals who wager on the outcome of battles between their sponsored super-powered contestants, sponsor James Johnsmeyer sent the Rhino to pressure the deformed Spider-Man clone, [[Kaine]], into becoming a contestant. [[Joystick]] and [[Polestar]] joined the fight while the sponsors wagered on who would draw first blood. Double points were offered for Spider-Man as a wildcard while he tried to defend Kaine. Uninterested in joining the Game, Kaine seriously battered the Rhino while Spider-Man tackled Polestar and Joystick.

In another scientific experiment, the Rhino attempted to enhance his limited intelligence. The experiment was too successful, rendering him too smart for his own good. His new intellect ruined a romance, and he became suicidal. However, instead of giving up on life, he reversed the procedure and returned back to his former IQ.

The Rhino battled [[Hammerhead]]'s gang but was taken down again by Spider-Man. In Canada, the Rhino became subject to experimentation whereupon he was mutated into a half-man / half-rhino creature temporarily. The [[Juggernaut (Cain Marko)|Juggernaut]], attempting to reform his life, stopped the bestial Rhino, rejecting an opportunity to escape his own sentencing. The Rhino was reverted back to his previous superpowered self, whereupon he abducting and proposed to a French female singer/songwriter. Subsequently, after Spider-Man apprehended him, he was jailed in a special section of Ryker's Island prison for superpowered criminals at the same time as the [[Green Goblin (Norman Osborn)]]. The Rhino was seen free from jail, whereupon [[Wing, Colleen|Colleen Wing]] knocked down and apprehended him after she crashed [[Knight, Misty|Misty Knight]]'s Jaguar XK8 straight into him. After Spider-Man publicly revealed his secret identity, the Rhino was enlisted in the Chameleon's Exterminators team, and defeated Spider-Man. However, after the Chameleon's arrest, the Rhino was left unpaid, and went on a drunken rampage. However, the [[Black Cat]] convinced the Rhino to end his tirade while Spider-Man recovered.
