History

The son of an Earth woman and the Emperor of Spartax, Peter Quill has spent most of his life living in the stars. Peter took up his father’s Element Gun and traveled the galaxy as the Star-Lord – galactic hero and pilot of a sentient vessel known as “Ship”. After a traumatic incident involving Galactus’ herald The Fallen One, Peter gave up the mantle of Star-Lord (and was imprisoned in the Kyln) until Nova called upon him to assist against the Annihilation Wave. Since winning the war against Annihilus, Peter Quill once again travels the stars, this time as the leader of the team known as the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Squirrel Girl

Real Name:

Doreen Green

Team Affiliations:

  • Other

History

You’d think that young Doreen Green’s mutant power was Super-Adorability, but her abilities go far beyond simple cuteness. Her semi-prehensile tail allows her to display amazing feats of agility…well, yeah, that tail IS pretty adorable. How about the empathic bond she shares with squirrels? That’s a good power! But, yeah, it’s also kind of adorable.

Okay! Those enlarged incisors on her pouty little mouth! Those are…awfully, awfully cute.

All right, she may be the cutest thing on two feet (and a tail), but she’s single-handedly beaten Dr. Doom, Mandarin, M.O.D.O.K and Thanos. THEY thought she was cute, too…until she kicked their butts!

Spider-Man

Real Name:

Peter Parker

Team Affiliations:

  • Avengers
  • Fantastic Four

History

When he was bitten by a radioactive spider, high-school student Peter Parker gained a suite of powers reminiscent of a spider, including agility, wall-crawling, and the ability to sense danger (his trademark “spider-sense”).

When Peter learned that his beloved Uncle Ben had been murdered by a thief that Peter himself had selfishly allowed to escape, he realized that with his new powers also came a new obligation of responsibility to use them for good.

Since that day, Spider-Man has fought criminals and super-villains while enduring a constant barrage of negative press, a stream of personal losses, and the occasional crisis of confidence. Somehow he manages to maintain a positive attitude, and rarely lacks for a humorous quip when battling bad guys.
