WINTER GUARD

Russia's answer to the Avengers, The Winter Guard was formed by uniting members of the government's previous super team and a group of exiled heroic mutants. The team was later restructured to a core team of four iconic members - but who was really under their costumes? And did anyone even care? Times change, and the Winter Guard once again comprises a large team but with some dubious motives and methods.
One thing remains the same though, the Winter Guard always do as they are told...mostly. Read all about the complicated history of Зимняя гвардия!

Update on...DAZZLER

With the world in a bit of a dark and dreary place right now we decided to let our latest character update brighten up your day in a way only she can do. Since we last touched base with her, the X-Men's resident songstress rejoined the team after many years absence, bounced around alternate realities with the X-Treme X-Men and even joined the Avengers' side team A-Force. Despite all her adventures though we are still no closer to understanding her strange resurrection power. So why not let life's worries drift away as you delve behind the music on the updated life of...Dazzler. Plus as an added bonus, we have compiled a brief history of Dazzler's music career as well as some of the few songs that she has song on panel in The Music of Dazzler!

Spotlight on...DOCTOR NEMESIS!

Not many of the X-Men's newer recruits have a history quite like James Bradley. First appearing in the 1940's outside of Marvel comics, he was brought into the MU in the 1990's as a villain. Seeking redemption, he became a nazi hunter and eventually joined the X-Men to help with the fallout of M-Day. He quickly became a key member of the team due to his unapologetically large ego, biting wit and brilliant mind. More recently he has been supporting the Avengers as an Agent of Wakanda. Not bad for a guy who's over 100 years old! Read the surprisingly long history of X-Club's resident mad scientist...Doctor Nemesis!

Spotlight on... MOON KNIGHT

In the deserts of the Sudan, Marc Spector died at the foot of a statute to Khonshu, Egyptian God of the Moon, only to rise again as the Moon's Knight of vengeance. This relatively simple premise has been interpreted numerous ways over the years, taking Moon Knight away from being just Marvel's "Batman in White". Marc Spector has come to be defined by his mental health, fragmenting into separate personalities and losing faith in whether Khonshu is just another voice in his head or the divine influence of his personal God. The answer, it seems, is sometimes both. From his brief tenure with the West Coast Avengers to his later black ops work with the Secret Avengers, Spector has often associated with Earth's Mightiest Heroes, but never for very long. In the end, he will always owe a greater allegiance to...a higher power. Wrapping up our West Coast Avengers theme month, here's the Spotlight On...MOON KNIGHT.

Spotlight on... LIVING LIGHTNING

Plucked from obscurity, one-time Hulk villains the Legion of the Living Lightning were used as impetus to creating Miguel Santos, the Mexican-American hero known as the Living Lightning. One of the few Avengers created for the title instead of drawn from other stories, Miguel was a native of California unlike most of his teammates. A young man new to his powers, Miguel eventually left to Avengers to pursue his family's dreams for his higher education. He came out in 2005 as one of the earlier gay heroes to be identified among the Avengers. Although his history with the team is relatively short, Lightning distinguished himself against one of the team's oldest foes, the Grandmaster, in the No Surrender arc. A kid from East L.A. turned planetary hero, today's spotlight falls on the Living Lightning!

Spotlight on...MASTER PANDEMONIUM

Martin Preston lost an arm in a car crash, and foolishly accepted help from Mephisto. Believing the Devil had ripped his soul into five pieces and scattered them, Preston took his new supernatural power on a Quixotic quest to restore his humanity. Frequently confronting the West Coast Avengers, Pandemonium gave us the horrific image of him fusing Wanda and Vision's sons to his body, believing them to be two of his five soul fragments. The Devil lied (as he always does) and the five soul shards were actually pieces of Mephisto's own lost essence. His quest for redemption was a lie, and so Master Pandemonium has resigned himself to villainy ever since.
