A dedicated Nanny for at least half a century to the Royal Inhuman family (never took a day off, according to her!), this lady made a big impression with the Avengers. Feeling their Fifth Avenue mansion was a mere hovel, she initially bulldozed their butler Jarvis with humorous consequences, though she did at her core have a heart of gold. Fierce and protective of her charge, Luna Maximoff, she had not trouble being a combatant either, should she have to be. Unfortunately, she was one of the casualties during the controversial Avengers: The Crossing storyline, which was prominent in the mid-90s Read now about the tragic tale of this woman whom Hercules called a true gem: Marilla.

Spotlight On... BUSHWACKER
Bushwacker's origin is an odd example of a mutant plotline continuing in non-X-Titles. After the Mutant Massacre, Bushwacker was reportedly hired by the Marauders to continue assassinating mutants on their behalf. An assassin who was really a serial killer who saw himself as an artist, Bushwacker targeted low-level mutants whose abilities helped them become incredible writers, artists, ballerinas, and so on. He was confronted by Daredevil and Wolverine, and would go on to threaten the Punisher. During the Initiative, Bushwacker became a member of the Hood's growing criminal syndicate, and he also fought X-Force after joining Belladonna and the Assassins Guild. Privately, Bushwacker was a sea of self-doubt and conflicting impulses, a failed priest, failed CIA agent, and failed husband. He once even claimed to be a mutant despite the obvious cybernetic elements of his gun arms, a sign of how deep his envy and psychosis really went.
Spotlight On... SUB-MARINER
WAKANDA FOREVER...unless...? Today's Spotlight Update for UncannyXmen.net and MightyAvengers.net covers Namor the Sub-Mariner. The Avenging Son reaches theatres this week, recreating the feud between Atlantis and Wakanda which became popular between AvX and Secret Wars. This Update picks up shortly after those events, covering a period where Namor became increasingly defiant to the surface world. He has, thus far, rejected his mutant heritage and overtures to join Krakoa and the Quiet Council. However, after being humiliated before his people by the honor shown by She-Hulk in saving Atlantis, the Sub-Mariner has given up claim on his throne and re-joined the Avengers to make amends. Even his oldest allies like Captain America are hesitant to trust Namor at this point, though, and he has a long way to go before reclaiming his reputation.

This gamma powered lawyer has become quite popular with the mainstream audience over the past few weeks on Disney+ and we couldn't help but serve up a second case of She-Hulk history. So we would ask the court to admit into evidence the exhibit of She-Hulk's publication history. She-Hulk has had many venerated writers but not everyone had the same vision for the character. From her humble spin-off origins, to being better established under the writing and art of John Byrne, to the source rich material mined for television under Dan Slott, and finally to the current Rainbow Rowell with her careful attention to all previous continuity and flair for romance. She-Hulk most recently became the lawyer for the entire nation of Krakoa. Read how this intelligent, funny, and lovely lady worked her way into lawyer superstardom through years of hard work. We present the publication history of...the Sensational She-Hulk!
