BakutoEdit

Bakuto is a fictional ninja in Marvel Comics. The character, created by Andy Diggle, Antony Johnston and Marco Checchetto, first appeared in Daredevil #505 (April 2010).

Bakuto, the head Daimyo of South America, met with the other four Daimyos in Jigoku-Chu Castle in Japan. He showed some doubt in Matt Murdock leading The Hand and especially scoffed at White Tiger's involvement due to her being a woman. Beforehand, Bakuto had killed his master, Izanagi, to showcase "[his] strength of will", even going so far as to not allowing him seppuku.

In the present, while having dinner, Bakuto's food is spiked causing him to hallucinate demons. Matt goes to check on him as Daredevil and are both immediately attacked by ninjas that were secretly sent by the other Daimyos. After defeating them, Matt is led to believe that someone is attempting to take Bakuto's life and ups the security. Despite this Bakuto believes that Matt was the one who sent the ninjas and begins plotting to kill him.[1] He is later confronted by a possessed White Tiger and killed in sword combat.[2]

Bakuto in other mediaEdit

  • Bakuto appeared in Iron Fist, portrayed by Ramón Rodríguez. Bakuto is one of the leaders of The Hand and is Colleen Wing's sensei from before the events of the series.[3] Bakuto at first appears to be a benevolent person, aiding Danny Rand in his abilities and showing him footage of the previous Iron Fist, but soon it becomes apparent that he wishes to use Danny for his own purposes and especially has plans for the Meachums.[4][5] After shooting Joy Meachum, he and his men take Danny, but end up fighting him along with Colleen and Davos. Bakuto battles Colleen with swords, but he is stabbed by his former pupil. Colleen refuses to kill Bakuto, so Davos does it for her. His body then disappears. Colleen assumes that Bakuto's people took it, but Danny recalls that Harold Meachum managed to come back from the dead.[6]
  • Bakuto reappeared in The Defenders, revived to full health. He is established to be one of the five Fingers of the Hand, the others being Sowande, Madame Gao, Alexandra, and Murakami. He first appears when he accosts Colleen, Danny and Luke as they are escorting Claire to the 29th Precinct for protective custody, but escapes.[7] He is later present, along with Murakami and Madame Gao, when Elektra kills Alexandra and assumes command of the Hand.[8] The three Fingers express disdain with Elektra for her actions, but she is undeterred, only interested in cultivating the substance so she can have eternal immortality.[9] Nonetheless, the Fingers accost Matt, Luke and Jessica when they break out of the precinct and return to Midland Circle seeking to rescue Danny from Elektra. Bakuto comes very close to finishing off Matt until Colleen shows up to fight him off. Bakuto remains upstairs to fight Colleen, Claire and Misty. Regaining the upper hand, Colleen kills Bakuto, but not before he manages to cut off part of Misty's right arm.[10]

Basil Elks is a petty thief who breaks into a museum to steal what he believes is an ordinary emerald - but is in fact an alien Kree artifact called the Alpha Stone. Elks, however, miscalculates the security guards rounds and is caught and fired upon when he reaches for a weapon. The guard's bullet accidentally hits and shatters the gem, causing an explosion that transforms Elks into a humanoid reptilian - his skin becomes green and scaly and his eyes are now large and red. Elks then flash-freezes the guard in place, and realizing that he now has superhuman abilities, decides to become a supervillain and calls himself the Basilisk. He faced off against Spider-Man, Mister Fantastic, Captain Marvel and the Mole Man which ended with him being imprisoned in another Kree artifact called the Omega Stone that ended up in lava.[12][13]

The Omega Stone he was imprisoned in was found in a lava river by some Moloids who worshiped it.[14] After absorbing the Omega Stone into himself (thus increasing his power to its fullest potential) and breaking free, he fought the Thing and defeated him until Spider-Man arrived.[15] After hearing the Basilisk's origin, Spider-Man manages to help the Thing regain consciousness and they fight the Basilisk. During the fight, the Basilisk disappeared during a cave-in.[14]

The Sphinx pulled the Basilisk from his timeline and paired him up with Moonstone, Ulysses Bloodstone, the Man-Wolf and Gyre to compete against the Sphinx's elder self and his team consisting of Black Bolt, Darkhawk, Mister Fantastic, Namorita, and Nova.[16]

The Basilisk reappeared in the crossover storyline involving the Scourge of the Underworld, a vigilante who assassinated numerous minor supervillains. Seeking retaliation against the Thing, the character tunneled his way to the headquarters of the Fantastic Four which was undergoing construction, but was murdered by the Scourge of the Underworld disguised as a construction worker.[17]

Dead Ringer later acquired a tissue sample from the Basilisk's body and assumed his form.[18]

During the "Dark Reign" storyline, the Basilisk was resurrected - along with 16 other criminals murdered by the Scourge - by master criminal the Hood using the power of the entity Dormammu. The revived characters form a squad to attempt to eliminate the Punisher; the Basilisk completed the mission by capturing the Punisher.[19]

During the "Fear Itself" storyline, the Basilisk is among the villains that escape from the Raft after the Juggernaut takes the form of Kuurth: Breaker of Stone and damages the facility heavily. He assists the Man-Bull, the Griffin, and another escaped inmate in a bank robbery. When Hercules arrives, he recognizes that the fourth person with them is actually Hecate. The Basilisk joined the Man-Bull and the Griffin in fighting Hercules until Hecate regained her memories.[20] When a revived Kyknos attacks Hercules, the Basilisk and the Man-Bull flee.[21] Hercules and the Griffin manage to find where the Basilisk and the Man-Bull are hiding and recruit their help. The villains approach Hecate and Kyknos using a ruse involving Hercules being turned to stone. Hercules quickly revives and saves the villains by killing Kyknos, while Hecate escapes.[22]

The Basilisk was later hired by HYDRA where he was paired up with the Looter to steal the Ellsworth Sonic Reducer. Both of them are defeated by the Superior Spider-Man (Doctor Octopus' mind in Spider-Man's body) and are webbed up for the police.[23]

Team affiliationsXavier Institute Student Body
Brotherhood of Mutants
AbilitiesParalyzing light pulse projection

Basilisk is a mutant and a student at the Xavier Institute. Possessing limited intelligence and persecuted in his youth due to his abnormal appearance (bald, abnormally large and with one eye), the character is extremely aggressive. Once the Basilisk's mutant power manifests, he suffers from brain seizures until given a device to help regulate the ability.

The Basilisk joins the Brotherhood of Mutants. They take over New York City. While watching human prisoners march by, he makes a joke about a perceived bad smell. The Brotherhood's leader Magneto attempts to deliver a punishment, but kills the Basilisk instead.

Powers and abilitiesEdit

Upon absorbing the Alpha Stone, the Basil Elks version of the Basilisk possessed enhanced physical strength, reflexes, and stamina. The Basilisk's main offensive weapon were his eye beams, which could be concussive force (these could also be directed at the ground for limited flight) or energy that manipulated temperature (to boiling or freezing extremes) or molecules.[26] Upon absorbing the Omega Stone, Basilisk's powers increased to their full extent, allowing him to generate volcanoes worldwide, including in the Savage Land and New York City.[27]

Wayne Gifford was a normal human until becoming the Basilisk, a large humanoid reptile. The creature possesses superhuman strength and agility, and a paralyzing stare. The Basilisk's one weakness is its reflection, which serves as a reminder of its former state.

The Mike Columbus version of the Basilisk possesses an overly-fleshy head devoid of all features except for sunken ears, a slit-like mouth, and a single centered eye socket. A camera-like device is located in this socket that allows the Basilisk to control his superhuman mutant ability to emit a pulse of high-frequency strobe light from his brain. The light paralyzes any sentient being that views it, while the length of the effect varies depending upon the willpower of the onlooker.

Franz Mittelstaedt was born in Backnang, Germany. He was inspecting an electrical power plant when a stray bolt of lightning struck a faulty generator and bathed him in electricity. When he emerged from his coma weeks later, he found that he could summon lightning at will to wield as a weapon. He decided to use his powers in the name of democracy.

Later he was teleported away by the Grandmaster, along with hundreds of other heroes of Earth, so that the Grandmaster and Death could choose champions from among them. Blitzkrieg was chosen for the Grandmaster's team, fighting alongside fellow heroes Captain America, the aboriginal Talisman III, Darkstar, Captain Britain, Wolverine, Defensor, Sasquatch, Daredevil, Peregrine, She-Hulk, and the Thing. When the Grandmaster's team won the contest, the heroes were returned to Earth.

Blood SpiderEdit

The Blood Spider (Michael Bingham) is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #367 (October 1992), created by writer David Michelinie and artist Jerry Bingham.

Blood Spider is a mercenary trained by Taskmaster under contract by the Red Skull to create a team of mercenaries who would be capable of defeating Spider-Man. The trio were patterned after the superheroes Captain America, Hawkeye and Spider-Man, and the characters were called Death-Shield, Jagged Bow and Blood Spider.[volume & issue needed]

Solo joined the fray on the side of the wall-crawler and helps to defeat the three villains and thwart Red Skull's machinations who was using the mercenaries to guard private files sought by Spider-Man in reference to his parents.[volume & issue needed]

Years later, Blood Spider appears with Death-Shield and Jagged Bow among the criminals vying for the multi-million dollar bounty that was placed on Agent Venom's head by Lord Ogre. The trio's attempt on Agent Venom's life is interrupted by competing mercenaries Constrictor and Lord Deathstrike.[39]

Crime Master, with the help of Blood Spider, Death-Shield and Jagged Bow, later tries to steal a damaged Rigellian Recorder from Deadpool and the Mercs for Money.[40]

Of the trio, Blood Spider was the only character who displayed any superhuman abilities. He was able to shatter a solid concrete wall with a very powerful move, indicating he possessed some degree of superhuman strength. He was not as powerful as Spider-Man, and not nearly as fast. He carried a back pack and wrist devices capable of shooting webbing similar to that of Spider-Man, but much weaker. An ordinary human in peak physical condition, such as Solo, was able to tear through it, which would not have been possible with Spider-Man's webbing. Blood Spider's costume has several design elements that Bagley would later incorporate into the redesign of Ben Reilly's Spider-Man costume. The most prominent of the traits is the use of a larger, symmetrical spider emblem on the front and back, the legs of which meet on the shoulders.

Blood Spider in other mediaEdit

  • A variation of Blood Spider appears in the Ultimate Spider-Man animated television series, voiced by Benjamin Diskin.[41] This version is an alternate universe counterpart of Spider-Man from a universe where vampires led by the Lizard King have taken over most of Earth. In "Return to the Spider-Verse" [Part 1], he teams up with Spider-Man and Kid Arachnid to search for the Siege Perilous' shards and free the humans, including his teammates, from Lizard King's control. While the Spider-Men proceed to cure all those infected and defeat Lizard King, Blood Spider is attacked by Wolf Spider, who steals the shard they found. Blood Spider returns in "Return to the Spider-Verse" [Part 4], having been taken captive by Wolf Spider so the villain could drain his essence alongside other Spider doppelgangers. After being saved by Spider-Man, Blood Spider returns to his dimension.
  • Blood Spider appears as a playable character in the mobile video game Spider-Man Unlimited.
  • A variation of Blood Spider appears in Spider-Man: Hostile Takeover, a prequel novel to the 2018 video game Spider-Man. He is recruited off the streets to undergo experiments in a lab run by Norman Osborn, which exacerbate his preexisting mental health issues. Afterwards, he comes to believe that he is the real Spider-Man and that Peter Parker is an imposter. Under his own Spider-Man persona, he shows no interest in protecting and saving lives, stating he is the true Spider-Man as he is willing to kill whereas Peter will not. This disregard for human life causes the public to turn against Spider-Man, though a large number of people believe they are two separate people due to subtle, but obvious differences in their appearance. Eventually, Peter is able to draw the imposter into a public confrontation and prove his innocence. Subsequently, Blood Spider is defeated and incarcerated.[42]

BloodwraithEdit

Bloodwraith (Sean Dolan) is a fictional character in the Marvel Comics universe. He was created by Mark Gruenwald, Dann Thomas, Roy Thomas and Tony DeZuniga, and first appeared in Black Knight #2 (July 1990).

Bloodwraith is the murderous enemy of Black Knight and the Avengers. While Sean Dolan was known as Bloodwraith, Bloodwraith is made up of the souls of those the Ebony Blade has slain. He is an expert swordsman compelled to take lives, especially innocent lives. The blade is indestructible and able to cut through almost any material. The blade was forged from a meteorite and Merlin's magic. The blade can trap dead souls and absorb or deflect all kinds of energies and mystical power. Bloodwraith can sense the ebony blade and control it like a telekinetic. If separated, Bloodwraith can teleport to the Ebony Blade or teleport the blade to himself. Bloodwraith rides a winged horse named Valinor.

Sean Dolan was an amateur swordsman with no special abilities. When Sean drew the ebony blade, he found himself overwhelmed and controlled by all the souls of those the sword had slain, and became the Bloodwraith. The Bloodwraith was dark black in color and appeared in costume. The sword constantly craved new blood to add, and those it slew found their souls locked in an eternal battle of good vs. evil in a dimension inside the sword. Bloodwraith rides his winged horse, Valinor, and is an expert swordsman. He can control the ebony blade rather like a telekinetic. When separated from the blade, he can sense its presence and instantaneously teleport to its location. The ebony blade could slice through anything and, previously, would curse its wielder with petrification if its wielder used the blade to draw blood. When he wielded Proctor's sword, the Bloodwraith and Valinor appeared much more skeletal and could channel powerful blasts through the sword. When powered by the Slorenian souls, Bloodwraith became composed of an energy unknown to man, and both he and the sword grew to gigantic size.

Created byDavid Michelinie, Mark Bagley
SpeciesHuman

Carl Brock is a character in Marvel Comics. He was created by David Michelinie, Mark Bagley and first appeared in Amazing Spider-Man #375. He is Eddie Brock's father.

Carl was a businessman who lacked any form of emotion, until he met his love Jamie. They soon married and decided to have a family, however, Jamie died when giving birth to their son Eddie. This caused Carl to be cold and unloving towards Eddie, generally ignoring and only giving his son half-hearted complimations. Eddie tried everything to gain his father's affection but it was never enough. Things only became worst after Eddie (as a teenager) got drunk and accidentally ran over a neighbor's young son while driving with friends to which Carl went near bankrupt when he used most of his money to cover the incident, causing his resentment towards his son to increase.[46] When journalist Eddie was fired due to the Sin-Eater hoax, Carl ultimately disowned Eddie.[47]

After Eddie bonded with the Venom symbiote and turned into an anti-hero, Spider-Man tried to question Carl about Eddie (first as Peter Parker and then as Spider-Man) but Carl refused to give any information.[48]

After Anne Weying was bonded to the Venom symbiote,[49] and had gotten mysteriously pregnant with Eddie's child, Anne left the boy Dylan at Carl whom he raised as his own son. Despite providing Dylan with a degree of love, Carl was abusive to and (in some cases) even injuring his grandson.[50]

When Eddie with the brain dead Venom symbiote arrived to his father, Carl didn't attempt to help his son and ordered Dylan to go inside home as the agents of Maker's Project Oversight recaptured Eddie.[51] Eddie came back and again tried to seek amends with his father, but Carl angrily told Eddie to leave as he didn't consider Eddie as his son.[52] Dylan thought that Eddie was his older brother and went to Eddie in order to get to know but when Eddie got "sick", Dylan sent Eddie to the hospital. However, Carl arrived and forced Dylan to get in the car. When Dylan tried to argue as Dylan saw Eddie as a great person, Carl was about to lash out, but the Venom symbiote in its humanoid form (being separated from Eddie) confronted Carl inside their minds and after a heart-breaking discussion, the Venom symbiote left Carl in the desert all alone.[50]

Other versions

He was a close friend with Richard Parker, with the two working together on Project Venom under the employment of Bolivar Trask.[53] He along with Richard and his wife died from the plane crash orchestrated by Bolivar in order to gain full ownership of the project.[54] However, unbeknownst to Bolivar, Edward had kept a portion of the Venom suit hidden for his son to inherit.[55]

In Marvel Mangaverse, Shinji is May Parker's first husband and father of Venom. When the Shadow-Clan came to claim May's sister, they shot multiple poisonous arrows, killing Shinji, but with his son surviving.[56]

Bor went up against one giant, who was actually a time traveling Loki in disguise, and battled him, but was killed.[62]

Loki would impersonate Bor's ghost to get Odin to defeat Laufey and adopt the boy that would become Loki. Loki resurrected Bor in modern day, but affected his mind making him think that monsters were everywhere. He encountered his grandson Thor and the two fought in a destructive battle that involved the Dark Avengers. Bor was killed by Thor who only found out about his identity afterwards by Loki and Balder.[63] Hela later brings Bor back to life to lift Mjolnir. When he was unable to, Hela reduces him to dust. She then uses him to battle Thor once again.[64]

Bor once again returns to halt the wedding between Asgardian Sigurd and Valkyrie Dísir, causing much ire with the two as well as Danielle Moonstar, Hela, and Loki.[65]

Bor in other mediaEdit

Bor appears in the 2013 movie Thor: The Dark World, portrayed by Tony Curran. He appears in a flashback to the Asgardians' battle against the Dark Elf forces of Malekith the Accursed five thousand years ago.

While she still loves her daughter, Melissa has since become an alcoholic and a drug pusher and has been working low paying jobs that she keeps getting fired from.[69] Despite her many flaws, she does show genuine concern for her daughter.[70] She further ends up in a relationship with her lawyer, but she breaks up with Greg. She immediately regrets this, but Greg is murdered by an female hitwoman posing as a water jug delivery person.[71] Melissa and Tandy celebrate the anniversary of Nathan's death.

The hitperson gives Tandy until the count of three to come out before she shoots Melissa.[73] Thanks to a tactic by Tandy, her mother is saved from the hitwoman and left to confront Scarsborough.

Ellen Brandt is a supporting character of the Man-Thing (Ted Sallis) in Marvel Comics. The character, created by Roy Thomas, Gerry Conway and Gray Morrow, first appeared in Savage Tales #1 (May 1971).

Ellen Brandt grew up in a loveless, emotionless household which she had hoped to escape.[79] She met her husband Ted Sallis and she ran away to elope with him. The two visited a fortune teller for fun who informed them that tragedy would befall them.[80] Ted soon began working for S.H.I.E.L.D. and became lost in his work, causing Ellen to see him as cold as her father. She joined A.I.M. and plotted against her husband. When she revealed her true colors to Ted, she chased him into a swamp where he gave himself an untested super-soldier formula and crashed into the swamp, becoming Man-Thing. Ellen was frightened of his appearance and thus his abilities burned half her face.[81][82]

In other mediaEdit

The character was adapted for the Marvel Cinematic Universe film Iron Man 3, portrayed by Stéphanie Szostak.[83] In the film, Brandt is a war veteran who lost her arm in battle before A.I.M. founder Aldrich Killian injects her with the Extremis virus, which grants enhanced regenerative capabilities.

BrooEdit

First appearanceAstonishing X-Men #40[85] (2004)
SpeciesBrood mutant

Broo is a fictional character from Marvel Comics. He is a mutant from the Brood extraterrestrial race, but unlike his feral brethren he is intelligent and compassionate. Broo was born in the lab on a S.W.O.R.D. orbital research station called Pandora's Box.[86] He joined the X-Men as a student in Wolverine & the X-Men #1.

He has been the object of bullying because of his odd behavior; however he does not seem to understand teasing and even takes it as a compliment. He has developed a relationship with Idie,[87] and was at the top in his class behind Quentin Quire.

Kid Omega, who wanted to prove himself to Broo, Idie and Kid Gladiator who told him they never heard of him, reasoned with Krakoa who then joined Wolverine's X-Men.[88]

After discovering a robot placed there by the Hellfire Club in order to manipulate Oya, Kade Kilgore and Max Frankenstein tell Broo about their plans, but he is shot and left for dead before he can tell anyone else.[89] Beast saves his life with assistance by Brand, Peter Parker, Reed Richards and Tony Stark.[90] Broo was treated and put into a coma, and once he awoke, he had reverted to his feral brood instincts and acted like that of an animal.[91] He spent some time as an unwilling student in Kade Killgore's Hellfire Academy mutant school.[92] Idie comes with him for supervision, and Quentin Quire comes to rescue them both.[93] Quire advances the theory that Idie has fallen in love with Broo pre-trauma.[volume & issue needed]

Broo was often seen attacking fellow students and support staff at Killgore's school, random, brutal violence being fully supported and encouraged by the teachers.[volume & issue needed] He was kidnapped by the genocidal alien Xanto Starblood, who was going to teach Broo the hard sciences and feed him unique beings.[volume & issue needed] While on Xanto's ship, Broo bit a Bamf and was healed, restoring his self-aware, intelligent, and compassionate self, and the staff returned him to the school.[94]

During the Battle of the Atom, Broo babysat Shogo Lee.[95]

Broo later appears as a member of the Agents of Wakanda.[96]

Broo is a Brood mutant because he can feel compassion and has high intelligence. Like the rest of the Brood, Broo has several powers, including enhanced strength, enhanced speed, enhanced agility, ability to breathe in space, and insect wings that allow him to fly. His increased intelligence has resulted in funding for his beloved school; Broo has developed a line of pastries that cause the consumer to lose weight.[97]

BulletEdit

Bullet/Buck Cashman is a character in Marvel Comics. He first appeared in Daredevil #250 (January 1988) created by Ann Nocenti and John Romita Jr.

Bullet is an agent to the Unites States government who performs covert activities of an unrevealed nature and who has the highest level security clearance such an agent can hold. He is in charge of his young son Lance, who was obsessed with an imminent World War III - however, Bullet was rarely at home, leaving his son alone; indeed, Bullet's permanent address is different to Lance's, although Lance frequently lies to alibi his father. Lance's mother Gloria rarely accepts her responsibilities to stay with Lance, much to Bullet's chagrin.

Bullet was assigned by a United States Army general on behalf of Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin of Crime, to participate in a scheme against the environmental protection organization, Save the Planet. Bullet was to allow another man to bomb the organization's headquarter in terrorist fashion, and then to arrest the supposed terrorist himself. The saboteur would then be released through legal maneuvering.

However, Matthew Murdock, who is secretly the costumed crimefighter Daredevil, captured the saboteur himself. (Murdock was not in his costumed identity at the time.) Murdock then encountered Bullet, who said he would see to it that the saboteur went to jail. Through his superhuman senses, Murdock realized that Bullet was lying, and Murdock and Bullet fought each other, but Murdock finally lets Bullet take the saboteur into custody.

Soon after Bullet killed a man in toxic waste, framing the environmentalists for the murder. Murdock, as Daredevil, accused Bullet of committing the murder, and the two fought. (Bullet realized that Daredevil was the man who fought him previously but does not know Daredevil's true identity.) When the police arrived at the scene, Bullet confessed to the murder and was taken into custody but after Bullet made a single phone call, all charges against him were dropped and he was released.

Since then, Bullet joined criminals recruited by the assassin Typhoid in an attack on Daredevil that nearly killed the crimefighter. [98]

Daredevil decided to get revenge on Bullet; to do so, he tracked Bullet's son and helped him against some bullies, earning Lance's trust. Lance then invited Daredevil to his home and convinced him to not fight Bullet. Bullet entered unannounced and, misunderstanding the scene to believe that Daredevil was threatening Lance, attacked Daredevil. Lance stopped their fight to explain it all. Bullet admitted that he liked Daredevil, having attacked him only because he had been hired to do so. Daredevil decided that tracking Bullet had been useless and left. [99]

Sonny BurchEdit

Sonny Burch is a minor character in Marvel Comics. The character, created by writer John Jackson Miller and artist Jorge Lucas, first appeared in Iron Man Vol. 3 #73 (December 2003).

As chairman of Cross Technological Enterprises, Burch acquires Iron Man's technology patents to be sold to various companies in an attempt to improve his own political position.[100][101] However, he had neither the knowledge nor care to fully understand that even Iron Man's outdated technology is too sophisticated for adapting; examples of Burch's incompetence include a submarine where Iron Man and Captain America save the military personnel,[100] a missile defense system for the U.S. Government,[102] and Oscorp's imperfect battlesuits and military drones.[100][103] When technological mistakes threaten his cargo plane carrying Iron Man's armors (which were salvaged after blackmailing Carl Walker[104]) to crash into Washington, D.C., Burch (facing utter ruin) takes a gun and commits suicide.[105] Fortunately, Iron Man saves the personnel within Burch's cargo plane.[106]

Sonny Burch in other mediaEdit

A heavily adapted version of Sonny Burch appears in Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018), portrayed by Walton Goggins.[107] This version is a black market criminal who trades and sells to big businesses; he has henchmen (consisting of Uzman, Anitolov, Knox and FBI agent Stoltz) and is the owner of a restaurant (presumably as a front). Sonny attempts to buy Hank Pym's quantum technology, but gets turned down by Hope van Dyne. Sonny's men subsequently battle the Wasp and Ant-Man. He later manages to get information out of Scott Lang's friends (Luis, Kurt and Dave) via his "truth serum" concoction. Burch and his men fight Ant-Man and the Wasp (who are also fighting Ava Starr) in a three-way battle for the miniaturized technology. Sonny attempts to escape via boat, but is stopped by Giant-Man. Burch and his men catch up to Luis, but are tasered by Kurt and Dave. Luis injects Burch and his men with his own "truth serum" out of revenge, forcing confessions to various crimes to federal agents led by Jimmy Woo; Sonny even confesses to his restaurant's health code violations.

Noah BursteinEdit

Noah Burstein is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character, created by Archie Goodwin and George Tuska, first appeared in Hero for Hire #1 (June 1972).

Noah Burstein is a scientist who worked on recreating the super soldier serum that created Captain America, and in the process created Warhawk. Years later, Burstein would hire Luke Cage to capture Warhawk.[108] He landed a job at Seagate Prison experimenting on inmates one of them being Carl Lucas. He left Lucas in a "Electro-Biochemical System" when racist guard, Billy Bob Rackham, came to sabotage the experiment only for it to increase Lucas' strength and durability.[109] He later gets a job at the Storefront Clinic with Claire Temple as his assistant. He reunites with Lucas, who had changed his name to Luke Cage, and asks him to rescue Claire when she is kidnapped by Willis Stryker who now went by Diamondback.[110]

Burstein and Claire are later kidnapped by John McIver, who demanded that a similar treatment be done to him as was done to Luke Cage, becoming Bushmaster. He and Claire are later rescued by Cage.[111] At one point Bushmaster returns to force Burstein to work for him even kidnapping his wife, Emma, as leverage. Both he and his wife are saved by Iron Fist this time. He would continue to be kidnapped by criminals only for Luke Cage and Iron Fist to come and rescue him.

Noah Burstein in other mediaEdit

Noah Burstein was a recurring character in Luke Cage, portrayed by Michael Kostroff.[112] He fulfills the same purpose as his comic book incarnation. After Luke Cage escapes from Seagate, Burstein goes into hiding, living in a farmhouse with all of the experimental equipment he was able to salvage. Claire takes Luke to see him after Diamondback shoots him with a Judas bullet.[113] He removes the pieces of the bullets only to reveal that he plans on using the information gleaned from him to improve on his experiments. He even so far as to tell him that Reva Connors, who was his assistant at the time, was also in on the plans. Enraged by the deception, Luke destroys his equipment before he and Claire leave. However, Burstein is able to retrieve some of the information from his files.[114] In the season 1 finale, Burstein is seen in Diamondback's hospital room following his defeat, though his intended plans for Diamondback are unknown.[115]

An invulnerable overweight fry cook, Schaub is recruited to the Initiative program and given the codename Butterball. Despite Schaub's invulnerability, his lack of physical strength, skill, and wits make him an inappropriate candidate for the superhero program.[116]

When Norman Osborn takes control of the Initiative, Schaub is part of Henry Peter Gyrich's Shadow Initiative assembled to retake control of Negative Zone Prison Alpha from the forces of Blastaar.[117] In spite of heavy losses, the team completes their mission.[118] Schaub has subsequently been referred to as a hero by Norman Osborn and used as an everyman figure for propaganda purposes by H.A.M.M.E.R., Osborn's military arm.[119] During the Siege on Asgard, Butterball helps the Avengers Resistance.[120] Later, Butterball is a founding member of a new superteam in North Carolina.[121] He later joins the Avengers Academy.[122]
