The Bacchae are a fictional group of woman warrior characters appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. In ancient times Hippolyta and her sisters set about war mongering various lands. In each attack she would steal female children, raising them to be her faithful warriors. This gave rise to the origin of the mythological Amazons. Hippolyta served as their queen and she called them her Bacchae. This arrangement served for many years until the arrival of Hercules. Sometime later with her being immortal, Hippolyta decided to restart her Bacchae cult in order to advance her standing in modern day. She did this by initiating female street people and runaways, providing them with weapons and fighting skills. This modern day Bacchae also became former associates of the Golden Horde and once sought vengeance on the Invisible Woman for interfering with their affairs. They then formed a private New York club called Tartarus as a front based in the heart of Wall Street. Outsiders see it as a private pleasure palace for those of the international business elite who consider the Hellfire Club too passé. It was here during a kidnap attempt that they were foiled by the X-Men.[8]

After learning of Diamondback and Cap's relationship, the Society's new leader, King Cobra, had Diamondback kidnapped and placed on trial,[9] fearing that she would reveal the groups secrets to the Captain. Diamondback was found guilty by her fellow serpents and sentenced to execution. Black Mamba and Asp objected but were overruled by King Cobra. To save Diamondback, Black Mamba and Asp called in a favor from their former leader, Sidewinder, also Black Mamba's ex-boyfriend and they rescued Diamondback, however in retaliation, King Cobra captured the Asp and Black Mamba. Diamondback then hired Paladin to help her free the pair. Together, with Captain America, and Paladin, the five combined to defeat the Serpent Society.[10]

Band of the Bland[edit]

Bastards of Evil[edit]

The Bastards of Evil are a team of supervillains appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.[11]

The Bastards of Evil are young supervillains who claim to be the disavowed children of some of the supervillains. They consist of Aftershock, (who claims to be Electro's daughter), Ember (who claims to be Pyro's son), Mortar (who claims to be Grey Gargoyle's daughter), Singularity (who claims to be Graviton's son), and Warhead (who claims to be Radioactive Man's son). They came together not only to rob a bank but to come up with plans to take over the world. The Bastards of Evil committed acts of terrorism and recorded it with floating robotic cameras. Warhead destroyed a part of Ohio which Gravity stopped, but Warhead escaped. The Bastards of Evil end up running afoul of the Young Allies. During the fight, Warhead exploded on Ground Zero (the former site of the World Trade Center) presumably killing himself and thousands of bystanders.[12]

The Bastards of Evil meet up with their mysterious benefactor. When Firestar and Gravity fight Electro, he ends up defeating them. He let them live so that they can spread the message that he doesn't endorse Aftershock and the Bastards of Evil's terrorism. Electro also says that they should look up how and when he got his powers on the internet and there no way a girl of Aftershock's age could have been conceived after he got his powers. It is impossible for him to be Aftershock's father.[13]

Aftershock informs the Bastards of Evil that they have orders from their superior to Araña and Nomad. When Firestar and Gravity arrive at the edge where Warhead exploded, they are ambushed by the Bastards of Evil.[14] During the Young Allies' fight with the Bastards of Evil, the Young Allies end up meeting their leader who calls himself Superior and claims to be the son of the Leader.[15]

It is soon revealed during the battle that the other Bastards of Evil members were originally teenagers who were kidnapped by Superior, exposed to various forms of radiation, given personal narrative implants, and false memories of their forgotten childhood as the children of those supervillains. When Araña and Nomad are kidnapped, the Bastards of Evil plot to kill them on national television. When the Young Allies arrived and convinced the Bastards of Evil members to in-fight themselves, Aftershock remembers her true identity of Danielle Blunt and causes her to attack Singularity who remembers his true identity of Devin Touhy. Singularity turns on Superior while the other Bastards of Evil members question their true identities. This gave the Young Allies the opportunity to defeat them after Superior uses his telekinetic abilities to rip Singularity in half. Superior and the remaining Bastards of Evil were incarcerated at the Raft. While in his cell, Superior plans to find a way to escape incarceration, wipe the memories of the remaining Bastards of Evil, and create "new siblings" to serve him.[16]

During the "Fear Itself" storyline, Aftershock and Ember were seen escaping from the Raft after Juggernaut in the form of Kuurth: Breaker of Stone leveled it.[17] Both were fighting against the students and teachers from the Avengers Academy alongside Icemaster, but were subdued by Jeremy Briggs.[18]

In the life of Old Man Logan, its incarnation of Bruce Banner got overloaded gamma radiation and was driven insane enough to impregnate She-Hulk. As a result, over time while claiming the West Coast of the United States as his domain after overthrowing Abomination, Hulk's hillbilly grandchildren helped to form the Hulk Gang where they acted as landlords to those that live in the rebranded part of the United States called Hulkland. In addition, they reside in a series of caves and trailers. The Hulk Gang beat or killed anyone who did not pay their rent on time.

There were two versions of the Hulk Gang in the similar Earths:

Hulk Gang (Earth-807128)[edit]

Hulk Gang members Bobbie-Jo Banner, Charlie Banner, and Otis Banner beat up Logan and will inflict more pain on him if he did not pay double by next month.[76] As Logan was with Hawkeye to obtain the money, the Hulk Gang got tired of waiting and killed Logan's family. Upon returning and finding his family dead, Logan was informed of what happened by his neighbor Abraham Donovan causing Logan to bring out his claws for the first time.[77] Logan proceeded to hunt down and kill the Hulk Gang members Beau Banner, Bobbie-Jo Banner, Charlie Banner, Elrod Banner, Eustace Banner, Luke Banner, Otis Banner, and Rufus Banner where he killed them. When he made his way to Pappy Banner who admitted that he got tired of being a supervillain landlord and wanted to fight Logan for old time sake by having his family killed, Logan engaged him in his Hulk form in battle and emerged as the victor. He spared Billy-Bob Banner and took custody of Hulk's infant son Bruce Banner Jr.[78]

Hulk Gang (Earth-21293)[edit]

It has been implied that the Inner Demons can be killed under the right circumstances: at one point, Anti-Venom claims to have killed some of them, possibly by suffocation, which he later notes to be an effective tactic against them.[83]

Inner Demons in other media[edit]

Institute of Evil[edit]

The Institute of Evil is a fictional organization appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

The Institute of Evil existed in the Earth-712 universe and served as the Squadron Supreme’s arch-foes. The known members of the Institute of Evil included Ape-X (the leader), Doctor Decibel, Foxfire, Lamprey, Quagmire, and the Shape.

The Behavior Modification process invented by Squadron member Tom Thumb would prove to be the Institute of Evil's undoing. The Golden Archer used the machine to make fellow Squadron member Lady Lark obsessed with him. However, he couldn't stand her irrational behavior, so went for a walk and was captured by the Institute. They tortured the Archer until he revealed the Squadron's new base of operations. They then kidnapped the Squadron's family members and attacked their headquarters. They began ambushing Squadron members and using the behavior modification machines on them as they returned from their missions. The Institute then brought the Squadron back to their lair where the Golden Archer and their captive family members were held. The Squadron attacked, revealing that Tom Thumb had designed the process not to work on Squadron members, and defeated the Institute completely.[84]

The Institute of Evil's members were subjected to the Behavior Modification process, altering their personalities. The former super-criminals all became elected to full membership in the Squadron Supreme and aided them in their efforts to conquer the world in order to forcibly turn it into a utopia.[85]

Some Institute members did not fare so well as members of the Squadron. Ape-X suffered from a psychotic withdrawal from reality and fell into a coma, due to her behavior modification process. After saving twenty factory workers from a gas leakage, Quagmire went into a coma. In the hospital, he was sucked into the hole in his brain that is a portal into the dimension from which his dark matter originates, and Doctor Decibel suffocated in Quagmire's extra-dimensional slime.[86]

In time, Squadron Supreme member Nighthawk objected to the extreme methods the Squadron was using to achieve its goals, and left the group. Nighthawk formed a rebel group, known as the America Redeemers, to oppose the Squadron's "benevolent" tyranny. The Redeemers included other enemies of the Squadron, expelled Squadron member the Black Archer, as well as unknown superheroes that infiltrated the Squadron to help take it down. With the help of Master Menace, the Redeemers were able to reverse the Behavior Modification of Foxfire, Lamprey, and the Shape and recruited them into his group. These three agents also remained in the Squadron as double agents.[87]

When the Redeemers finally confronted the Squadron Supreme, an all-out battle broke out. Lamprey tried to absorb Doctor Spectrum’s power, but Doctor Spectrum was able to overload Lamprey's power which killed Lamprey. Foxfire, who had long been in love with Doctor Spectrum, tried to gain his approval by betraying Nighthawk, to allow the Squadron to win the fight. She used her powers to kill Nighthawk by blasting his heart and causing a massive coronary. Foxfire was then killed by fellow Redeemer Mink, who had been in love with Nighthawk. The death of Nighthawk caused the Squadron members to realize that they had become the very thing that they had intended to oppose, and thus ended the fight.[88]

The Shape was the only former member of the Institute of Evil that eventually chose to side with the Squadron Supreme, finding happiness in his new calling.[89]

The Menagerie returned once again with new members Swarm, Ox, and Squid joining the roster.

Nasty Boys[edit]

The Nasty Boys are a fictional organization appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. They are a group of mutants who serve as the strike force of Mister Sinister and consist of Gorgeous George, Hairbag, Ramrod, Ruckus, and Slab.

Self-proclaimed "Nasty Boy" Slab faced X-Factor member Strong Guy before the full team appeared.[106] The full team battled X-Factor in the next issue seemingly led by US Senator Steven Shaffran. Senator Shaffran (also known as Ricochet) was a mutant who has the ability alter probability in his favor. The Shaffran that appeared with the Nasty Boys was a disguised Mister Sinister who had taken the Senator's form in order to publicly discredit him as a mutant terrorist. Sinister tells Shaffran he did it because of the harm that would come to mutants if he became President of the United States. He also tells him that he has a personal interest in the safety of Havok and Polaris.[107]

The Nasty Boys were taken into custody following their first appearance and battle in Washington DC. Ramrod is subsequently deported from the US due to his immigrant status. Both Hairbag and Slab are rescued from prison by the Mutant Liberation Front. Sinister collects Hairbag from them, but Slab stays with the Mutant Liberation Front for several weeks to spend time with his sister Thumbelina.[108]

The five members of the Nasty Boys are reunited when Sinister orders them to capture and kill the former member of the Marauders, Malice. Malice interrupts the Hawaiian vacation of Havok and his girlfriend Lorna Dane (a.k.a. Polaris) in order to kill the latter mutant, whom she fears (at Sinister's request) she may be forced to bond to permanently. The Nasty Boys have a hard time controlling the situation, as Malice continues to jump back and forth between Alex and Lorna. She uses their considerable powers against anyone in her way. Both Alex and Lorna are willing to die in order to end Malice once and for all, and their combined willpower forces Malice to be stuck between them. This allows Sinister to trap her. The Boys get away, as their battle does not draw the attention of the local authorities until after their getaway.[109]

Later, Ruckus appears at a speech given by Senator Kelly in an attempt to assassinate the senator. The X-Men stop Ruckus, and he is placed in custody.[110] Ruckus was apparently able to evade custody as he was seen attending the X-Cise clinic as a client in the hope of receiving the mutant cure, however this was all a scheme by the Red Skull. Joined with Ramrod, Ruckus later travelled to England and attempted to rob banks but both were arrested,[111] and saved by the X-Men from a Terrigen Mist cloud about to hit their prison.[112]

Meanwhile, Slab, Ruckus, and Gorgeous George established a drug lab, harvesting and selling mutant growth hormone, until Psylocke attacked their lab, defeated the three in combat and shut down their operation.[113] The Nasty Boys were later hunted down and killed by the Upstarts, in order to lure out Cyclops and his ragtag team of X-Men to Washington Heights. After a brief moment of words, the two groups engaged each other in battle with the X-Men gaining the upper-hand.[114]

Omega Clan[edit]

The Omega Clan is a fictional organization appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

Following the demise of Omega Red, a secret organization known as "The White Sky" which is specialized in growing and programming unique assassins to meet all their clients' expectations, were hired to create three "clones" from the remains of the original Omega Red. Each of these clones have different abilities from each other and they passionately hate X-Force just for the fact they were implanted with false memories to believe that X-Force members had killed their father.[120]

The Omega Clan is composed by:

  • Omega Black – A female clone of Omega Red, she goes by the programmed name of Sylvia Engel Rossovich.[121][122] Omega Black's chest is implanted with five retractable Carbonadium tendrils which she can use to affect people with diseases, such as cancer.
  • Omega White – A male clone of Omega Red, he has the power to create energy constructs similar to Omega Red's coils which he uses to drain the psychic energy and life force from his enemies. He's also able to render himself intangible, thus becoming immune to physical attacks.
  • Omega Red II – A male clone of Omega Red, in fact he is the closest member in terms of appearance and powers to the original Omega Red.

When Wade Wilson tried to infiltrate the White Sky facility, he was discovered and battle the Omega Clan.[120] He was quickly backed up by fellow X-Force members: Wolverine and Nightcrawler. Both of them were tortured by the three clones, until Deadpool managed to stop them by sending his own White Sky creation: Alpha Achromic.[121]

Soon after that battle, the Omega Clan revealed itself as part of Daken's Brotherhood.[123]

The whole Brotherhood hid for a time in an underwater secret base,[124] in order to push Apocalypse's clone Evan Sabahnur into the Brotherhood's own Apocalypse.[125]

When X-Force infiltrated the base, Omega Black was the one along Daken and Blob of Earth-295 to stop Deadpool while he was trying to extract Evan. After being captured, Wade was inspected by Sylvia in order to remove his telepathic dampening device, and once Farouk had probed his mind, Omega Black was asked to kill Wade by filling his head with cancer.[126]

Intent on doing what was asked of her, she tried to finish the job by beating him up with a wrench, only stopping when she was asked to bring Evan to see Wolverine drowning, in order to push him to wear the Celestial Armor and ascend as Apocalypse. As Daken was beating him to death to make him reveal his nature as Wolverine, Omega Black stopped him and brought the boy back to the torture room with Deadpool, and then left, while Evan wore the Celestial Armor to end this.[127]

With the Celestial Armor on, Evan fought back and freed his friends, seemingly killing Omega Red in the process. Omega White tried to avenge his "brother" but Psylocke mind-controlled him in order to absorb the Shadow King's, and then erased Omega White's mind, leaving the Shadow King trapped in a brain-dead corpse. With the Brotherhood tore apart Black Omega was somehow able to escape the base. Omega White's body was later entrusted to Brian Braddock's care.[128]

It was revealed that Omega Red was able to survive Evan's attack and started a mercenary career, working for Roxxon.[129] When he clashed with Deadpool, he tried to have revenge on him for the false memories implanted on him.[130] After clashing with Deadpool numerous times, the mercenary convinced him that the memories of his past were false, and that just like him, Omega Red needed to realize he wouldn't be controlled by those who transformed them into monsters. Both called a truce, and Omega Red left Deadpool alone, unless he discovered he had actually murdered his family.[131]

Omega Black has since reappeared too, with the revelation that she had become a vessel for Shadow King which the Crimson Pirates were supposed to give to Tullamore Voge.[132]

In the "Return of Wolverine" mini-series, Omega Red appeared as a masked sniper at a work camp owned by Soteira. A revived Wolverine sees him shooting a fleeing scientist. Upon Wolverine returning fire, Omega Red shoots out the front tire of Wolverine's motorcycle.[133] While on the ocean, Omega Red and a revived Daken attack the speedboat that Wolverine and Ana are on. Omega Red is shot off the boat by Ana using the speedboat's harpoon gun.[134]

During the threat of the Dire Wraiths in Clairton, West Virginia, the Outcasts and other agents of the Mole Man fought against Rom until the Dire Wraiths revealed themselves. Both sides worked together against the Dire Wraiths until Rom banished them to Limbo.[139]

In the midst of the war in Subterranea when Mole Man went missing, Kala left for the surface to find help in fighting Mole Man's forces and she ran into Iron Man. Mole Man sent the Outcasts to bring Kala back to Subterranea. In addition, the Netherworlders sought to kill Kala for her past actions. Digger and Landslide assisted Iron Man in fighting off the Netherworlders who wanted Kala to become their leader again. She turned them down as she is right now interested in finding Mole Man.[140]

The members are:

  • Boulder[138] - Boulder has superhuman strength and durability. His current whereabouts is unknown.
  • Digger[138] - Digger can slice through most substances with his clawed hands. His current whereabouts are unknown.
  • Landslide[138] - Landslide can induce shattering internal vibrations within a person or object by touching it. This includes the ability to create earthquake tremors. His current whereabouts are unknown.

Its members include the Goat-Faced Girl, Dancing Water (the illegitimate daughter of Avalanche), Dangerous Jinn, Insect, Living Wind, Honest John, Mzee, and an unidentified monk. With the help of Red Skull and Arnim Zola, these people have gone through lengthy and painful genetic alterations involving mad science and magical artifacts in order to gain the powers they now possess (though some may have been born with their powers and others, such as Dancing Water, may in fact be mutants themselves). They first appeared after the Avengers vs. X-Men storyline where they attacked Rogue and Scarlet Witch near the grave of Professor X. The S-Men defeated Rogue and Scarlet Witch and managed to make off with Professor X's body while taking Rogue and Scarlet Witch as their captives.[150] The S-Men held Rogue and Scarlet Witch as prisoners of Red Skull as he fused part of Professor X's brain with his own. Rogue managed to absorb some of Dancing Water's powers to escape and look for Scarlet Witch.[151] Red Skull used Honest John to take the form of Odin in order to get Thor to help the S-Men attack the mutant race. Red Skull even used the Goat-Faced Girl to negate Wolverine's healing factor so that Thor can land a cataclysmic blow on him.[152] Scarlet Witch and Havok assist Captain America in fighting Red Skull until Dancing Water got him out of there. Afterwards, Captain America and Havok search for leads on where to find Red Skull and the S-Men.[153]

During the "AXIS" storyline, the S-Men and their ally Ahab stop Magneto when he arrives on Genosha to attack Red Skull.[154] Havok, Rogue, and Scarlet Witch are captured by the Red Skull's S-Men and sent to his concentration camp in Genosha.[155] In a fit of rage over finding mutants being used for freak medical experiments, Magneto kills the entire S-Men.

Sons of the Tiger[edit]

The Sons of the Tiger are fictional characters, three martial arts heroes appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. They were created by Gerry Conway and drawn by Dick Giordano and first appeared in The Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #1 (April 1974). The Sons of the Tiger were three friends and martial arts students of Master Kee: Lin Sun, of Chinese ancestry, was the leader of the trio and adopted son of Master Kee; Abe Brown was an African American from the streets of Harlem; and Robert Diamond was a Caucasian Hollywood actor.

Lin Sun is returning from a martial arts tournament with his first place trophy when he is suddenly attacked by ninjas in front of his school in San Francisco. After defeating the villains, he goes into the "Tiger Dojo", which has been ransacked. He finds a dying Master Kee, who tells him that there are forces in this world which would destroy us and then points to a box on a shelf, after which he dies. In the box, Lin finds three amulets made of jade, a tiger's head and two claws: the symbol of the school. The inscription at the base of the box reads, "When three are called and stand as one, as one they'll fight, their will be done...For each is born anew, The Tiger's Son." They are later known as "the Amulets of Power".

Soon after, Lin meets up with his two friends, Abe Brown and Bob Diamond, who have also been attacked by ninjas. Lin recounts the story of Master Kee's death and gives each of them one of the jade tiger claw amulets. They soon discover that when they join hands and chant the inscription from the box they become mystically connected. Their martial arts skills combine to become one force and their physical abilities are tripled when they wear the amulets.

During the series' run, the trio runs up against "the Silent Ones", an evil organization with mystical ties attempting to gain world domination.

Beginning in Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #19, entitled "An Ending", the trio breaks up and Lin Sun throws all three amulets in a trash can located in an alley. There, Hector Ayala finds the amulets and wears them to become the White Tiger. The Sons of the Tiger appeared in the next two stories, "A Beginning" and "To Claw the Eyes of Night", during the transition to the White Tiger stories. The character of Abe Brown is mostly seen periodically after that. The book continued using the title "The Sons of the Tiger", even though the trio had split up and power was transferred to the White Tiger.

Bob Diamond continued to make occasional appearances in Power Man and Iron Fist as Colleen Wing's lover.

The Sons of the Tiger appeared briefly with Luke Cage's Human Resistance after the Scarlet Witch altered the world during the House of M crossover, along with the Daughters of the Dragon, the Black Cat, Iron Fist and the Moon Knight. Lin Sun, Abe Brown and Lotus Shinchuko appeared in an issue of The Pulse as bodyguards for Luke Cage, who had been injured during the events of Secret War.[161] They also appeared alongside Spider-Man and the Human Torch in Marvel Team-Up #40 (Dec 1975).[162] In November 2008, they made an appearance in Manifest Destiny: Wolverine.[163] The Sons of the Tiger reunited in the 2014 Deadly Hands of Kung-Fu miniseries, where they aided Shang-Chi and his comrades.

While in prison for dealing heroin, an engineer named Honcho is the cellmate of Adrian Toomes, who showed his Vulture harness designs to him. Memorizing on how to construct it, Honcho (when released on parole) builds four Vulture costumes (red, yellow, and silver) complete with anti-graviton generators in which he equips himself and three petty criminals (Gripes, Pidgeon, and Sugar Face). Gaining all the Vulture's powers, the group members called themselves the Vulturions.[187][188] Wanting to become big-time criminals, the Vulturions make several tries to kill Spider-Man and accumulate wealth, ultimately failing in all their attempts. Learning of the Vulturions' existence, Toomes built himself a new Vulture suit and broke out of prison, intent on hunting down his "rip-offs". By locating the group, Adrian beats and nearly murders all of them only to be stopped by Spider-Man. After defeating the Vulture, he turned him and the Vulturions in to the police.[189]

A new group of Vulturions (consisting of three members including a female) appear in Avengers: The Initiative, where they steal a briefcase containing classified research on gamma radiation from Baron Von Blitzschlag. One of the Vulturions is identified as Honcho (apparently released from prison and having gone back to crime). They are stopped with ease by a costume-less Peter Parker and the Scarlet Spiders.[190]

During the "Civil War II" storyline, the original Vulturions resurface. This time, they have upgraded their gear and are still using the same moniker. The Vulturions were seen committing a heist until they were stopped by Spider-Man upon him being tipped off by Ulysses Cain.[191]
