Looking at this image, I'm lost and don't know any of the characters.
Maybe Arabian Knight, I know he knows the Hulk.
SHOT BY HIS MOM
Wilson Fisks kid, became a crime lord then killed by his mom.
He was never going to be long lived.
That said, I did like him. He was a neat character and when I was reading the Spider-man books I thought he was a good idea.
His mom shooting him was the saddest moment in his career, it was harder to him since she too hates Wilson's criminal career.
Not familiar with Regent, I gave up on Slott's TASM a while back...
The Rose is cool though.
If you read Renew Your Vows, he's the villain in that otherworldly story.
It's worth the read, better than Dan Slott's 616 run after Superior.
The Rose was originally a really compelling idea, executed to varying degrees of success. I think Miller not using him in his Kingpin stories kind of held the character's importance back.
Someone will probably comment on the Blue Beetle wings, so I'll beat you to it.
I see a pattern here with MARVEL COMICS
The name Nathaniel is the name involved with time travel.
The father of the team leader is away on a long mission of his own accords, or some such.
I sadly don't have enough of an experience with him. He seems like a cool character. My only real experience was the 90s Iron Man cartoon's adaptation of Armor Wars, though.
Ghost is pretty cool. Very creepy, under-used villain.
He's a more interesting choice for an arch-villain for Iron Man than the Mandarin.
Agreed. I wish they'd use him more.
I can honestly say... Kind felt Nate Richards was always... annoying. Like almost everything about him. Granted I get what making him a bridge between Kang and Reed, and then possibly Doom does but... I just think that's just one of those straws that broke the camel's back deals for me. It's like, it's the MARVEL UNIVERSE. I understand these are larger than life characters in cosmic operas but sometimes these things get too damn convoluted. Can't say that I know much about him post say, 2005 or so.
As for GHOST... MAN, that is a character with tons of potential but he's been all over the map. Merc, Anarchist True Believer, borderline psychopath... There's nothing consistent. That said the powers and setting him against Tony Stark are already really compelling given IM's capabilities. I actually really liked the take in the ARMORED ADVENTURES toon. I know it was pretty much a rip off of Slade Wilson's Titans characterization but it worked for me, along with the design and the manifestation of his powers. If I were in charge I would give the current version that sort of take more or less.
Actually very scary the first time he (it?) appeared. Since then, I struggle to call it a character, but it's a cool thing.
Two characters I'd like to see in the MCU.
Alright, I missed a few. Busy editing stuff.
Regent - He was an interesting idea in the Battleworld line. I do like the idea of the bad guys winning every now and then. He had a great plan and it worked perfectly until Peter had to be 'responsible' and kick his ass. Also, great seeing MJ and Pete with a kid. Seemed natural.
Nathaniel Richards - I like and dislike Nate. He's an interesting character and I like that he can talk with Reed and have family moments since Reed is an asshat. He should smack Reed upside the head when he shows up. What I dislike is the whole 'Doom and Reed might be brothers' thing and that he shows up to basically be a Deus ex Machina from the few times I've read when he shows up. (I may be wrong here but besides the leadup to Battleworld I can't remember too much when he showed up.
Ghost - I like the original version where (I think) he was a industrial spy that ransacked tech places for money. The newer one where he hates companies that make money (or whatever it is) is kinda meh to me.
Shuma Gorath - Anything that is similar to the Cthulhu mythos is awesome in my books. Also, he's fun in MvC3.
This place needs Piper Maru.
