Halloween Jack (Jordan Boone) first appeared as Jordan Boone in Spider-Man 2099, was changed to Loki during the Fall of the Hammer crossover and was later seen in the pages of X-Men 2099 as Halloween Jack. He was once a scientist for the powerful company named Alchemax and was a respected member of the corporation. However, he sought to gain powers and snuck into the company's Aesir program; an attempt to create their own versions of the old Norse gods to take advantage of their renewed worship. The subjects of the program were granted powers, but at the cost of losing their identity due to a computer chip placed in their brains which made them believe that they were the true Norse pantheon. Boone however was able to avoid getting the chip, and he was transformed into the shapeshifting god of trickery, Loki. Then he moved to the floating city called 'Valhalla', which was seemingly shoddily built and thus endangering any innocents in the city below.[volume & issue needed]
Hamir the Hermit

The Invincible Iron Man #1 (July 2008)|
Invincible Iron Man #511 (February 2012) (as Detroit Steel)
|Alter ego||Sasha Hammer|
|Notable aliases||Detroit Steel|
|Abilities||Advanced technology embedded in her skin, allowing her to fly; energy threads/whips that come from her hands; superhuman durability|
Sasha Hammer is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. She first appeared in The Invincible Iron Man #1 (July 2008), and was created by Matt Fraction and Salvador Larroca. She is the daughter of Justine Hammer and the Mandarin, a relative of Justin Hammer and Temugin, and an enemy of Iron Man (Tony Stark).
Sasha is Justine's and the Mandarin's daughter. Raised by her mother, they both harbor a desire for revenge against Tony Stark for the financier's loss, and see Stark as an obstacle to their success. She first appeared as the girlfriend/assistant to tech-terrorist Ezekiel "Zeke" Stane, providing support to Zeke's attacks on Stark Industries buildings around the world. When Zeke is apprehended by Iron Man and S.H.I.E.L.D., Sasha is able to go underground, having never been discovered.
Following Norman Osborn's fall from power, Hammer reappears out in the open alongside Justine as Hammer Industries' heads and purchases numerous de-commissioned H.A.M.M.E.R. technologies to create a large suit of powered armor that they wish to market globally as a new soldier for the post-9/11 world. Justine and Sasha embark on a campaign to discredit Stark in the industrial market, conspiring with the corrupt Pentagon general Babbage and staging civilian attacks in which Detroit Steel is arranged to intervene before Stark. When confronted by Stark about her operations, Sasha attacks with her own biotech weapons with which Zeke augmented her body before being arrested, revealing her criminal intent to both Stark and Rescue. Shortly after, Detroit Steel launches a surprise attack on Stark Resilient by orchestrating a remote-server air-strike unwittingly piloted by young gamers on phones-unaware these actions were actually taking place in the real world. The combined efforts of Iron Man, War Machine, Rescue and Maria Hill are able to stop the strike and shut down Detroit Steel. When the Hammers then use their connections to arrange Zeke's secret release, Sasha introduces Zeke to her father's employ.
After Lt. Doug Johnson is turned into stone by the Asgardian demon Mokk: Breaker of Faith and believed dead, Justine makes her the new pilot of the Detroit Steel armor. However, Johnson is later revealed to be alive and kidnaps his replacement. Johnson brings Sasha bound and gagged to Justine, threatening to kill her unless the armor is returned. Johnson releases Hammer after regaining the suit's possession. Sasha and the Steelcorps battle Johnson, resulting in Sasha decapitating her predecessor with her whips.
Sasha Hammer's powers and abilities
Sasha Hammer has been augmented by advanced technology, enabling her body to generate powerful energy of an unspecified type. She can project this energy from her hands in the form of whips and swords that she can use in physical combat. Her enhancements also give her ability to fly. These abilities' limits have not been explicitly given, but she can use them to destroy an automobile and can prove a considerable opponent to Iron Man.
When operating Detroit Steel armor suits, she has at her disposal that full range of armaments and other features with which the suits were designed, as well as modifications with which the suit can be customized to a particular pilot. According to Hammer Industries, the suit incorporates technology, such as C.N.S. (Controlled Exo-Enhanciles), that would eventually be used to end paralysis caused by cervical, thoracic or corticospinal injuries. Weighing four and a half tons, the "oversized" Detroit Steel towers over Iron Man, at approximately twice her opponent's height. The suit affords its occupant considerable protection from automatic weapons and explosives, though the magically-powered Mokk was able to easily rip open the armor.
The suit allows its users to fly (though she has this aforementioned ability without the suit), and usually is seen with a rotary cannon mounted on its right arm, and a specialized chainsaw on its left, which can penetrate Iron Man's Bleeding Edge Armor. There are rocket-powered munitions on the suit's shoulders. The rotary cannon can be dismounted so that the soldier can carry and fire it as a traditional handheld weapon, and users of the armor have been seen outfitted with other types of weapons in this manner, including both directed-energy weapons and scaled-up rifles. Sasha's armor has also been observed to have a directed-energy weapon in palm of its hands. Those who pilot the armor are required to undergo considerable surgical modifications, which leave implants visible on the pilot's chest, which Lt. Johnson, who first piloted the Mark One, felt "turned him into a monster", though Hammer, who already had undergone a number of enhancements by Zeke Stane, regards herself as Stane's "masterpiece". As an executive of Hammer Industries, she has access to a wide range of armors that come in varying sizes and designs, with different models designed for different environments and hot zones, including arctic climates and urban encounters.

After being court-martialed from the army for torturing prisoners of war, Krueger resolved to take the law into his own hands and became the masked vigilante the Hangman. His modus operandi involves executing male criminals while leaving female ones alive but imprisoned to 'protect them' from corruption (many died of starvation while in captivity). After years of stalking criminals with a noose and scythe, he comes into conflict with the Werewolf by Night.
Hangman next stalks one of the Brothers Grimm, who had been stealing from diamond merchants. Mistaking one Brother Grimm (Jake) for his target (William), he pursued him to a pyrotechnics building and saw him seemingly die in an explosion. He was later one of the criminals captured by the Locksmith and Tiktok.
Hangman later kills a disguised woman, thus inadvertently violating his own code. As he knelt over the corpse in remorse, he was apparently fatally stabbed in the back by film reviewer Matthew O'Brien, who had been trying to stop the Hangman from his latest killing spree, impaling the Hangman on his own scythe.

|Species||Human (fetus is human mutant)|
Haven (Radha Dastoor) is a fictional mutant character, created by J.M. DeMatteis and Greg Luzniak, who first appeared in X-Factor #96. She was the best-selling author of a book about the new humanity that would result from humans and mutants evolving into one race. She planned to bring this 'new humanity' about by destroying three quarters of the world in a Mahapralaya, or 'Great Destruction', as foretold in her Hindu teachings.
X-Factor opposes her, but she is able to sway Wolfsbane by curing her of the genetic engineering that had turned her into a mindless Genoshan mutate, allowing her to once again assume human form. X-Factor shuts down her entire operation with the help of her brother Monsoon. She attempts to cure Jamie Madrox (not the original, although no one knows that) from the Legacy Virus, but she fails and he dies, leaving X-Factor to believe the original Madrox is dead.
Haven herself has no powers, but is carrying a mutant fetus, with various abilities ranging from healing to telepathy to opening dimensional portals into personal pocket dimensions. The fetus acts through Haven, leaving the true nature of the situation unknown to the general populus. The fetus was the product of an old affair that never came to term, instead remaining a sentient embryo. Haven's efforts to cause destruction attract the attention of the Adversary, who uses her fetus to return himself to the world, consuming Haven in the process.
Hawley was a Red Cross medic who helped soldiers during World War II. Nick Fury meets her, falling in love with her because of her determined and "stubborn" attitude, but not thinking she would return these feelings.

To keep her from grief, Fury told Hawley that Percy died a hero.
Hawley would go on to date Fury who, despite getting ridiculed and poked fun at by the Howling Commandos, ensured that she was loved. Despite Fury's overall character, Hawley considered Fury a "gentleman".
At one point, the time-displaced Morgana Blessing and Doctor Strange arrive, with the former discovering that she is Hawley's spiritual descendant. Along with Fury and Dum Dum Dugan, they battle Baron Mordo's minion, Sir Baskerville, using the power of Fury and Hawley's love. Doctor Strange then erases everyone's memories of the event.

Hazmat (Jennifer Takeda) first appeared in Avengers Academy #1 (June 2010); she was a series regular through its final issue. Created by Christos Gage and Mike McKone, the character Takeda discovers that her body naturally generates radiation when her boyfriend goes into a seizure while making out with her, an event that leads her family to all but abandon her, said boyfriend to dump her, and Takeda to have to wear a containment suit on a regular basis. Norman Osborn offers to cure her, but is just exploiting her.
During the Heroic Age storyline, Hazmat is recruited into the Avengers Academy, along with five other students affected by Osborn. The group is led to believe that they are among those most likely to become heroes, but quickly uncover files stating they are in fact most likely to become villains. Hazmat later enters a romantic relationship with Mettle, one of the only people who can physically touch her. Desiring normal lives, the two consume a substance that removes their powers; but later take an antidote to regain them to fight the substance's villainous creator, and then proceed to consummate their relationship.
As part of the Marvel NOW!, in Avengers Arena Hazmat, Reptil, Mettle, X-23, and a dozen others are kidnapped by Arcade. Arcade takes them to Murderworld, where Hazmat watches Mettle die to save her. She later becomes injured and begins to lose control over her radiation. The resulting explosion leads to complete control of her radiation so that she no longer has to wear her containment suit.
When Cammi and Anachronism reveal Bloodstone has gone missing, everyone heads to Bagalia to find him. Once they do, he reveals that he enjoys life among the villains, and the others, minus Cammi, start to enjoy it as well. When Cammi tries to tell the others to leave, Bloodstone instead has Daimon Hellstrom teleport the group to Arcade's latest party so they can kill him, which Hazmat does, blowing him to bits with a concentrated radiation burst. The group is invited to join with Baron Zemo. Hazmat, along with Anachronism and Cammi, are brought to be trained by Madame Masque, and the team plans to infiltrate the Masters of Evil and destroy them from within. Over the next few months, Hazmat and Anachronism grow close, eventually kissing. Hazmat contacts Hank Pym and informs him of the plans that the team has uncovered. She also tries to contact Death Locket, but later learns that Death Locket has betrayed the group and put Chase in a coma. She bests Death Locket and the Young Masters.
Hazmat constantly emits harmful radiation, forcing her to wear a protective suit at all times when around others. The suit serves the additional purpose of enabling her to focus her radiation into energy bolts. Although her abilities manifested during her teens without obvious explanation, it has been confirmed that she is not a mutant.

At some point, twins, Mick and Kevin Mortensen were orphaned when their mother, Ruby, was killed by Zaniac. Thor took the twins to Asgard where Volstagg and Hildegund lovingly accepted them with open arms.

Gilmore Hodge in other media
Hodge appears in Captain America: The First Avenger played by Lex Shrapnel. Though he is not as evil or opportunistic as his comic book counterpart, he is still a brutish bully for Steve Rogers. He is physically fit and bullies Rogers even before joining the army. Rogers shows him up when Colonel Phillips tosses a fake grenade to prove Hodge's worth, but chickens out and hides allowing Rogers to jump and cover the grenade instead. Afterwards, it appears he was humbled somewhat after witnessing Rogers' heroics.
Ted Hoffman is the nebbish and timid assistant to J. Jonah Jameson. He constantly tries pitching ideas to his employer who either turns them down or outright steals from him. The most glaring example being in Spider-Man 2 when Hoffman pitched the name "Doctor Octopus" to Jameson who calls it crap only for him to establish it as Octavius' name as if he came up with it himself. Hoffman has trouble speaking up and due to this is constantly getting yelled at by Jameson.
Ironically, Hoffman has no established relation with Peter Parker and, much like everyone else, is oblivious to his double identity as Spider-Man. He at least seems to think he is a decent person, but there is never a moment that the two ever really interact. In Spider-Man 2, it is implied that he views Spider-Man as a hero, but due to constantly being submissive to Jameson he hardly ever has a say in the matter.
While his first name is never said in the films, the novelizations by Peter David reveal that his first name is, in fact, Ted after the actor who plays him. Raimi claims that Hoffman "probably has three different MBA's" and that his co-workers occasionally put tacks on his seat, implying that he isn't very popular at the Daily Bugle.

Thelma is appalled that Jeryn hired Power Man and Iron Fist to escort Millicent and is further put off by Jeryn's date, Janet Van Dyne due to her being "one of them." The ball is attacked by Nightshade, Stiletto, Discus, Eel and Man Mountain Marko resulting in the heroes, as well as Millicent, to save the day. Despite this, Thelma is angered by the fact that Luke and Danny had to remove their shirts in order to fight, frustrating Jeryn. In a final effort to get back at her, Jeryn replaces the two with Beast and Wonder Man causing Thelma to faint.
Thelma Hogarth in other media
While Thelma has not appeared in other media, in the Netflix series Jessica Jones, Jeryn's, who is a woman in this version, ex-wife is named Wendy Ross-Hogarth and is portrayed by Robin Weigert. Unlike Thelma, Wendy Ross' divorce, or rather soon to be divorce, from Jeryn is more dramatic and antagonistic with it coming off from an affair that Jeryn has with her secretary Pam. Ultimately, Wendy Ross is instructed by the season's villain Kilgrave to slash Jeryn, but she herself is killed by Pam in self-defense.

Within the context of the stories, Hoodwink is a master of hypnotism and can cause people to perceive what she wishes. She was a young disciple of the Red Skull. Her physical age was accelerated into an adult, calling herself Sister Dream. She and her Sisters attacked Captain America but were defeated, and eventually restored to her natural age.[volume & issue needed] However, soon after, she returned alongside the Sisters of Sin, this time as a younger adult. She and her sisters were once again defeated by Captain America.[volume & issue needed]
Hope is the granddaughter of the owner of Ling Industries. The rest of her family was killed by the Phalanx while visiting Switzerland. It was initially assumed that she was protected by a mutant ability of immunity against infections. She was infected by the transmode virus and was infectious to others by touch, but did not suffer the transformation usually associated with the virus. Imprisoned and experimented on by Mainspring research facility, she was later freed by and shortly allied with Warlock.
Ultimately it was discovered that her actual mutant power was not immunity from infection, but transmutation. She could alter the molecular structure of matter she could touch by conscious thought. So she was not actually infectious with the virus (which she had transmuted into harmless matter, hence her not suffering from its effects directly), but had assumed that she was, and her abilities transformed objects she touched into transmode virus infected material. Ultimately she learned she could transmute matter into other materials (such as glass) and so would not spread the transmode infection anymore.
She also is accompanied by her pet monkey, Chi-Chee.
Horde is the name of two fictional characters and one species.
The first Horde was an alien warlord. He had a shard of the Crystal of Ultimate Vision on his forehead, which made him invincible and immortal. Desiring the rest of the crystal, Horde coerced the X-Men to travel to the Citadel of Light and Shadow, where the crystal was hidden. As the X-Men entered, the citadel created illusions of each's most powerful desire. Only Wolverine was able to resist. He reached the crystal, only to discover that Horde had used the X-Men to distract the citadel's defenses. Horde cut Wolverine down, and removed his heart as a trophy. From that act, a lone drop of Logan's blood splattered onto the Crystal, which gave out enough energy for Wolverine to be restored. Empowered to godhood, Wolverine plucked the crystal shard from Horde's forehead, and the tyrant aged and withered to dust in seconds.
A cosmic insect-like species known only as the Horde first appeared in the final issue of Neil Gaiman's The Eternals. They are referred to as "the locusts of the universe", and have been recently drawn to Earth because of the awakening of the Dreaming Celestial. They apparently exist as the anti-thesis of the Celestials, harvesting worlds whose Deviant population become the dominant species. Both the Horde and the Celestials serve the mysterious "Fulcrum", which is the force that governs the ways of the universe.
The second being to take the name Horde was a collective being, the result of several citizens and a dog of Stoneridge, New Mexico being fused together after getting caught in the edge of a Gamma radiation dome created by the Leader. The resulting fusion caused the people to go insane, and were convinced by the Leader that the Warbound, who were helping people to escape the dome, were hostile invaders. After the Leader is defeated, Horde joins the Warbound in protecting the remaining citizens of Stoneridge.[volume & issue needed] It possesses a degree of gamma-enhanced strength, enough to fight the Warbound to a standstill. It also possesses a collective intelligence, albeit an unbalanced one, which leaves it highly susceptible to persuasion.
Horus is a fictional character appearing in the Marvel Universe, based loosely on the Horus of Egyptian mythology. He first appeared in Thor #240 (Oct 1975), and was adapted from mythology by Bill Mantlo, Roy Thomas, and Sal Buscema
Horus was revealed to have been imprisoned with Osiris and Isis in a pyramid for three thousand years by Seth. He encountered Thor and Odin when the Pyramid appeared in New York. He participated in the Ceremony of Rebirth which reincarnated Odin as Atum-Re and briefly battled Thor. Horus aided Osiris, Isis, and Thor in defeating Seth. Horus, Osiris, and Isis regained their freedom and returned to Heliopolis.
During the Secret Invasion, Atum mentions that Horus (his great-grandson) asked him to help fight the Skrull gods as part of the God Squad.
Horus has all the powers of a member of the race of superhumans known as the Egyptian gods of Heliopolis. He has superhuman strength, stamina, durability, agility, and reflexes, resistance to all Earthly diseases and some resistance to magic. Horus possesses the power to project solar energy, focused through his staff with a large blade at one end.
Other versions of Horus
Horus appears as a member of a team of Avengers from a parallel reality where Egypt is the dominant super power. He serves the ruler of this dimension, the female Sphinx and kills in her name. As the god of the team, he serves the role traditionally held by Thor or Hercules. In this alternate timeline, Horus uses a large ankh as the focus for his solar energy.
Horus in other media
Hoss is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by writer Garth Ennis and artist Clayton Crain. He is a demon, an enemy and occasional ally of the Ghost Rider. He debuted in Ghost Rider (Road to Damnation) #1, 2005. Hoss has been described as "one of Hell's most able tracker-scouts". He first appeared in Ghost Rider (Road to Damnation) #1 (Nov. 2005)
Hoss has stated that he arrived in Hell after committing suicide out of embarrassment, but the truth of this claim is unclear. He serves as one of Hell's tracker-scouts, travelling the earth to do his masters' work. Hoss crosses paths with the Ghost Rider (Johnny Blaze) while trying to recapture the renegade demon Kazann – Hell has sent Hoss to recapture Kazann, whereas the angel Malachi has rescued the Ghost Rider from Hell and sent him to achieve the same task. The two initially clash, but then join forces when facing the third being hunting Kazann – the archangel Ruth.[volume & issue needed]
Kazann is eventually defeated by the three hunters and the Ghost Rider finds himself returned to Hell, betrayed by Malachi. It emerges that Malachi and Kazann have been secretly plotting together since Lucifer's rebellion, using Heaven and Hell to advance their own careers.[volume & issue needed]
Malachi then descends to Hell to confront (and perhaps silence) the Ghost Rider – only to be ambushed by Hoss and Ruth, who easily defeat him. Hoss apologizes to the Ghost Rider, explaining that he lacks the power to free him from Hell – but offers a consolation prize, a chance for the Ghost Rider to share his torment with the defeated Malachi.[volume & issue needed]
Hoss has displayed a wide range of superhuman abilities, some of which have not been clearly defined. Physically, he appears to be superhumanly strong and durable. He's also able to modify his 'human' body – repairing it, extruding tentacles or shifting into a more obviously demonic form.
As well as his physical abilities, Hoss has a range of magical powers. He can track other demons and seems able to transport himself (and his allies) between earth and Hell. He was able to casually – and instantly – kill a biker gang who annoyed him, without physically touching them.
Hoss created his servant Buttview from a maimed and dying human, rebuilding his broken body and modifying his form. This ability may require a willing subject, as Hoss asked for the dying man's consent before he started work.
Howard the Duck
John Howard is a character within Marvel Comics' separate Ultimate Marvel universe. The character, created by Sam Humphries, Jonathan Hickman and Luke Ross, first appeared in Ultimate Comics Ultimates #10 (July 2012).
John was the Secretary of Energy during the Maker's attack was responsible for all the US government representatives' deaths, thus he ended up as the new U.S. President (presumably as there was no other in the cabinet who survived). While in the middle of the Winter Protocols confusion, he has advisers (Carol Danvers and Marvin Flumm) giving conflicting advice. A reluctant acquaintance with the Ultimates, Howard is seen with Iron Man and Thor dealing with the Maker, and Captain America during America's civil war chaos. It's possible that Howard is a subtle inspiration for the Iron Patriot armor.
Hugin and Munin
Within the context of the stories, Hunt was an average American teenager in the Ultraverse before being exposed to the alien Theta Virus, which gave her super powers. Under the alias En Flame, she has been a team member of the Exiles and Ultraforce.
Hunter the White Wolf
Hyperstorm is a mutant supervillain from an alternate future. The character, created by Tom DeFalco, Paul Ryan, and Dan Bulanadi, first appeared in Fantastic Four #406 (November 1995). Within the context of the stories, Hyperstorm is Jonathan Richards, the son of Franklin Richards and Rachel Summers from an alternate future reality designated Earth-967 by Marvel Comics. With his ability to manipulate reality and his psionic abilities, he conquers most of his home reality and turns to extend his rule to other timelines.
