Pazuzu, sometimes known as Imudugud, is a fictional demon in the Marvel Comics Universe. The character first appeared in the third issue of the Howard the Duck MAX series, in May 2002. He then appeared in a more important role in Nightcrawler miniseries The Devil Inside, in February 2005.
Pazuzu first existed as one of Lucifer's fourteen angels who assisted Lucifer in his attack on Heaven. After their defeat, as punishment, he was cast down to Hell, where he joined the Annunaki, who were gods worshipped by the Sumarians and other cultures. Pazuzu has since come into conflict with Howard the Duck, where he attacked him in a TV station, only to be defeated by a magic cigar. Pazuzu has since come in conflict with the X-Man Nightcrawler, who - along with Amanda Sefton and the other X-Men - prevented his and his brothers' release unto Earth by a group of selfish cabalists by locking them inside clay statuettes created by their last would-be sacrifice.
Pazuzu's powers include super strength, very dangerous sharp claws and demonic abilities. He also has the ability to change his appearance, and he demonstrated this by appearing in several forms including a winged-lion eagle hybrid, and a scaled humanoid with a ram's horn and scorpion's tail, and a serpent. He was worshiped as a god of wind, storm and pestilence, although it is unclear whether he had control over any of these.
Perseus retired from the Pantheon and took the identity of an innkeeper at Loch Ness, Scotland. To keep people from asking too many questions about his age, he faked the death of the innkeeper and took on the identity of the innkeeper's brother, "Scott Shannon". He provided boat tours of the loch. The Hulk came to visit him when a mysterious monster sank one of his boats. The Hulk rented a boat to investigate the lake and was attacked by the cybernetic creature known as Piecemeal. The Hulk and Piecemeal fought from the loch onto the shore when the Hulk got knocked out from behind by the Madman.[volume & issue needed]
Madman and Piecemeal kept Perseus and some of his guests as hostages inside the inn. Perseus told Madman he was scaring his guests and ordered him to leave. Perseus punched Madman in the face when he refused. That just agitated Madman and he killed one of his guests. Meanwhile, the Hulk was chained up and left for dead at the bottom of Loch Ness. The Hulk managed to break free and reach the shore. He crashed into the inn and started to fight with Piecemeal and Madman. During the chaos, Perseus ran into a room and grabbed his Pantheon spear. He came charging towards Madman but was caught in his grip. Madman then slammed Perseus into the ground with tremendous force. Hulk saw what happened and punched Madman through the inn. Hulk held Perseus as he laid there bleeding and near death. Perseus told the Hulk to finish the battle for him and to tell his daughter Cassie to come home. Perseus burst into a flash of light and turned into dust in the Hulk's hands. The Hulk grabbed Perseus' spear and charged towards Piecemeal. He impaled the creature and tossed him into the loch.[volume & issue needed]
Perseus has immortality. In his prime, Perseus was good in hand-to-hand combat and wielded his Pantheon spear. As a member of the Pantheon, he also has a healing factor allowing him to recover from injuries much faster than a regular human being.
Perseus had a daughter named Cassiopea. Cassiopea returned to the Pantheon after Perseus was murdered by Madman. After his death Perseus' body was converted into one of the Endless Knights. The Endless Knights were cybernetic zombies created from the bodies of Agamemnon's dead children.

|First appearance||X-Men: Deadly Genesis #1 (2006)|

Pete Woods (Artist)
Petra is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Petra first appears in the limited series X-Men: Deadly Genesis #1 (2006), and was created by writer Ed Brubaker and artist Pete Woods. She is one of the "Missing X-Men". The word "petra" means "rocky" in Latin, and "stone" in Greek.
Fictional character biography
Petra was the first of her family to be born in the United States. Her mother, father and brother emigrated from Denmark while her mother was pregnant with Petra. They lived the typical American life in the suburbs of New York City for most of Petra's childhood. Shortly after her thirteenth birthday, Petra's family was killed by a rockslide while on a camping trip. Unknowingly, Petra used her mutant powers of earth manipulation to avoid getting hurt.
After spending weeks in Child Protective Services, Petra was sent to live in New Jersey in a foster home. She was placed in a home that had five other children that were forced to share the same bedroom. Her foster mother was old and uncaring, and her foster father was too caring, trying to hold and touch Petra all the time. One day on an outing to Central Park, Petra's foster father tried to touch her but sank knee-deep into the ground. It was then that Petra realized that she was a mutant, and she ran away. She found a cave and hid there for days crying, knowing that with her abilities she could have either killed or saved her family.
She camped in Central Park for a couple years, using her power to manipulate rock caves into shelters to avoid being arrested and sent to juvenile detention centers. When she was sixteen, she discovered another useful aspect of her ability: she could turn coal into diamonds by concentrating hard enough. For a year, she used this aspect of her power to make diamonds of varying size to sell to pawn shops so she could buy food and survive.
One day, however, a pawn shop employee said he was going to call the owner of the store, but he really called the police. Running to her rock shelter, the police found Petra before she could hide, and took her into custody after a brief battle. When she awoke, a female guard informed her that she was being released into the custody of a woman, later revealed to be Dr. Moira MacTaggert, who was there to help Petra. This at first frightened Petra because she had never known anyone to try to help her because of her abilities, only hurt her.
After some time with Dr. MacTaggert, Professor Charles Xavier took Petra and the other children within custody (Sway, Darwin and Vulcan) to rescue the original X-Men team trapped on the mutant island Krakoa.[volume & issue needed] Petra instinctively used her powers to bury Vulcan and Darwin, and then gets incinerated by the volcano creature that was created by Krakoa.
Powers and abilities
Petra was a "terrakinetic" or "geo-morph", having the ability to psychokinetically manipulate, control, levitate and reshape the classic element of earth—sand, stone, rock, lava, and/or dirt—and could even transform the consistency of earth and rock, such as turning a lump of coal into a diamond. She also could use this power to cause minor earthquakes and create shapes out of solid rock.
In this reality, the X-Men team had not survived during the battle against Krakoa. Since the original X-Men died, this team (Vulcan, Darwin, Sway and Petra) became the X-Men. They were able to finally beat the Brotherhood of Mutants.
The Ultimate Marvel incarnation of the character is Petra Laskov, a female mutant of Syrian descent that initially appears as the supervillainess Insect Queen, and later as the superheroine Red Wasp. This iteration of the character is created by Mark Millar and Brian Hitch. As Insect Queen, she has Swarm esque powers to control insects (although she is fully corporeal), with features of grey skin and horns similar to Margali Szardos. Insect Queen is one of the members of the supervillain Liberators group that invades the United States to kill many in order to put a stop to perceived American aggression. During a showdown with the Ultimates, Insect Queen is apparently killed after being stomped by a giant-sized Wasp. However, the character is later rebuilt as the human-looking Red Wasp, a modified variation of the late Wasp. As Red Wasp, Petra serves as a member of the Avengers led by Nick Fury and Gregory Stark. The character's past is also revealed: Petra was the wife of Georgian activist Nikolai Laskov, and the couple together had a child. Unfortunately, the couple's child is held at gunpoint, forcing Petra to kill her husband to save her own child. She does so, only for Petra's child to be killed anyway, and then Petra was raped by thugs. When the Avengers fight the Red Skull, Red Wasp is almost tormented until Captain America and Hawkeye saves the team. Afterwards, Petra (disguised as a nurse) shoots her family's executioner in the head in a hospital. Petra continues to serve with the Avengers. When the Avengers fight Vampire X, Petra confides with ex-teammate Perun that's also added to the Avengers.

He makes his first proper appearance having amassed a literal tower of credit cards and, for completely indescribable reasons, was holding model Beverly Switzler hostage. Howard the Duck and Spider-Man teamed up to battle Pro-Rata who was still after the Jeweled Key. The key was later reacquired by the Astral Auditor who then later killed Pro-Rata by sending him into the collapsing vortex.
The character, created by Jim Valentino, first appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy #15 (August 1991) as the childlike ruler of the Universal Church of Truth of the alternate timeline/reality Marvel Comics designated as Earth-691. Valentino modeled him after his son Aaron at seven years old. He is depicted as a superhuman of unlimited potential, with the ability to duplicate not only super-powers, but also the skills of others simply by observing the ability being used; thus, he could acquire the psychokinetic powers of the Guardian Vance Astro as easily as he could the marksmanship ability of Astro's teammate Nikki, by watching them in combat.
Within the context of the Marvel Comics universe, Protégé is the deity and leader of Universal Church of Truth to which Replica, a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy, belongs. In order to save the lives of her teammates, she offers herself as a playmate to Protégé who is accompanied by Malevolence.
Later, Protégé uses its abilities to duplicate the powers of the Living Tribunal, nearly usurping its place in Marvel's cosmology. When attempts to defeat Protégé fail, The Living Tribunal states that any and all realities rest on Protégé's shoulders. Protégé itself claims to have become the new One-Above-All. Scathan the Approver, a Celestial, saves all realities by judging against Protégé. The Living Tribunal then absorbed Protégé into itself to prevent him from endangering all realities again.

Pulssus was a member of the Crimson Cadre, lead by General Ator and formed by the Genetic Council. Due to Terrigenesis, Pulssus' whole body is composed of electricity and thus has electric based powers. When the Fantastic Four visited the moon, Pulssus and his team attacked, but were chased away when Kristoff Vernard threatened to blast them with their weapons. Pulssus and his team soon after fought over the city of Attilan and Atlantis encountering the Fantastic Four again, Fantastic Force, Namor and Thor. Everything was eventually set right with the Royal Family revealing themselves. The Genetic Council ordered the arrest of the Family, but Pulssus and his team failed. Pulssus and the Cadre made one more attempt to fight the Royal Family with the help of Maximus and Fabian Cortez, but were defeated. Pulssus has not been seen since.

Carlos Cruz was a former Navy Seals officer who had a rough past, but a strong sense of justice and duty. After fighting off some muggers, he meets Microchip who offers him the chance to fight criminals. Micro had previously quit working for the Frank Castle after he felt that he had gone over the edge. While Carlos said no due to the Punisher's reputation, he changed his mind after his nephew was killed. His first mission involved Rosalie Carbone and while he was unable to kill her, he did kill many of her men as well as the people responsible for his nephew's death. He briefly quarreled with Castle before Micro sedated him. Carlos went after Rosalie again, this time with a vigilante named Phalanx. Phalanx is killed leaving Carlos to battle Bullseye. Their battle ends in a stalemate with Bullseye remarking that Carlos was no Frank Castle. Later, Carlos discovers that Micro had been killed. Believing that Castle was to blame he decided that he would be his next target.
