Hala the Accuser
Gabrielle Haller was a catatonic Holocaust survivor who awoke from the disorder after Charles Xavier used his powers to make her aware again. Gabby and Charles fell in love while he saw to her recovery for weeks, with the help of hospital volunteer and their mutual friend, Magnus (the future Magneto). When she is kidnapped by terrorist organization, HYDRA led by the Nazi Baron Strucker, Charles and Magnus used their mutant powers to save her and defeat HYDRA. Immediately afterwards, Magnus left Gabby and Charles feeling that her and Charles' view on mutants and humans contrasted his own. Magnus left with Nazi gold HYDRA wanted to claim.
Over some time, the two amicably ended their relationship. Soon after, Charles leaves Israel unaware that Gabrielle was pregnant. Years later, Gabrielle became the Israeli ambassador to Great Britain living in Paris with her young son David. During a terrorist attack at her home claiming the life of David's godfather Daniel Shomron, David's mutant powers activated, ending with him killing the terrorists and putting himself in a catatonic state. Later, David (who is now in his late teens) developed a disease the comic inaccurately describes as autism, which concerns his mother, who thinks it's a symptom of something more serious. Gabrielle did everything she could, but she turned to Dr. Moira MacTaggert for help. She tells Moira that Xavier is David's father and that she doesn't want him involved. Unfortunately, David's powers began to manifest uncontrollably, absorbing the psyches of two of MacTaggert's friends, Tom Corsi and Sharon Friedlander. Moira had no choice but to call Xavier to help who is assisted by some of the New Mutants. When David absorbs Moira's and Wolfsbane's psyches into his mind, Xavier and Dani used their powers to enter it as well. It is here that Xavier discovers he's David's father. Gabrielle and Cypher are also absorbed and they all meet David's various personalities, including that of the absorbed psyche of the terrorist leader who raided his home. Eventually, Dani and David's personalities returned everybody to their bodies, fixing most of David's mind and ridding him of his disorder. Despite her secrecy, Xavier does his best to help raise David.
Later, Gabrielle becomes Magneto's attorney, who is on trial for crimes against humanity. The trial was halted when Baron Strucker's mutant twin children, collectively named Fenris, attacked the proceedings seeking revenge against her, Xavier and Magneto for their father's death. After Xavier and Magneto defeated them, Magneto did not return to the courtroom.
Gabrielle loses David because of Bishop from an alternate timeline known as the Age of Apocalypse after he created said timeline when he accidentally kills his father. Bishop in the AoA timeline prevents this from happening by killing David.
Deeply saddened by the loss of her son, Gabrielle eventually moved on with her life. She continued work as the Israeli ambassador. She, along with the mutant hero Sabra, attempted to find out Magneto's true identity, but failed after he killed the forger Georg Odekirk who gave him the "Erik Magnus Lehnsherr" name. Gabrielle was also part of the United Nations decision to give the island nation of Genosha to Magneto, after he demanded an entire mutants-only nation.
Pete Wisdom later called Gabrielle to have a talk with Legion after he caused trouble across Great Britain. Following the coordinates in the car that was sent to pick up Legion, Gabrielle tracked the coordinates to Muir Island. After Gabrielle and Legion talked about what transpired in the "Age of X" reality, Gabrielle is accidentally shot by an Aqiri superhero whose president holds a personal grudge against Legion. As Gabrielle started bleeding, she told her son not to search his mind for a personality that has healing powers. Before passing away, Gabrielle told Legion that there haven't been any miracles from coming back from the dead. Infuriated with his mother's death, Legion incinerated his attackers and then teleported to the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning.
Gabrielle Haller in other media
Gabrielle Haller appears in X-Men: Evolution, voiced by Patricia Drake. This version is shown as too young to be a Holocaust survivor (though her comic appearances are also sometimes inconsistent on this matter). In the episode "Sins of the Son", Gabrielle is the mother to David who hid the truth of Professor X's existence. Though in this version they were married briefly when they were young, divorcing when Xavier's work with mutants kept them apart. Gabrielle tells David that Xavier abandons them. Gabrielle later calls Professor X when David goes missing. She later discovers that David was taken over by the Lucas personality that has personal issues with his father.
Gabrielle Haller appears in the Legion FX television series, portrayed by Stephanie Corneliussen. As in the comics, she was originally in a catatonic state at a mental hospital following her time in concentration camps during World War II until Professor X used his telepathy to revive her psyche. In "Chapter 22", Gabrielle and Professor X were in the mental hospital until Professor X used his mental abilities to have the doctors deem them cured. The two of them settled in a home where they gave birth to David. When Professor X went to Morocco, Gabrielle got a call from him stating that Shadow King is dangerous. Shadow King secretly possessed baby David which is witnessed by an adult David and Switch. In "Chapter 26", Syd Barrett, Cary Loudermilk, and Kerry Loudermilk arrived in the year of David's infancy where Syd interacted with Gabrielle. During their talk about David, the house is attacked by the Time Eaters where Syd killed the one that tried to attack baby David. Gabrielle then comforted baby David as Syd states that they need to get out of the house.

|First appearance||The Invincible Iron Man #1 (July 2008)|
Invincible Iron Man #511 (February 2012; as Detroit Steel)
|Created by||Matt Fraction|
|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.
Sasha is Justine's and the Mandarin's daughter. Raised by her mother, they both harbor a desire for revenge against Tony Stark for Justin'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 for new generation of soldiers. Justine and Sasha embark on a campaign to discredit Iron Man in the industrial market, conspiring with the corrupt Pentagon general Babbage and staging civilian attacks in which Detroit Steel is arranged to intervene before Iron Man. When confronted 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 Iron Man 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 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, Sasha is the Detroit Steel armor's new pilot by Justine. 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 Detroit Steel armor is returned. Johnson releases Hammer after regaining the Detroit Steel suit's possession. Sasha and the Steelcorps battle Johnson, resulting in Sasha killing 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 the Detroit Steel suits, she has at her disposal that full range of armaments and other features with which the Detroit Steel suits were designed, as well as modifications with which can be customized to a particular pilot. According to Hammer Industries, the Detroit Steel 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 Detroit Steel suit allows its users to fly (though she has this aforementioned ability without one), 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 Detroit Steel suit's shoulders. The rotary cannon can be dismounted so that the soldier can carry and fire it as a traditional handheld weapon, and the Detroit Steel armor users have been seen outfitted with other types of weapons in this manner, including both directed-energy weapons and scaled-up rifles. Sasha's Detroit Steel armor has also been observed to have a directed-energy weapon in palm of its hands. Those who pilot the Detroit Steel 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 [Johnson] into a monster", though Hammer (who already had undergone a number of enhancements by Zeke) 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.
The 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 superhumans captured by the Locksmith and Tick-Tock.
The Hangman later kills a disguised woman, thus inadvertently violating his own moral code. As he knelt over the corpse in remorse, he was fatally stabbed by film reviewer Matthew O'Brien, who had been trying to stop the Hangman from his latest killing spree, impaling the Hangman through the back and chest with his own scythe.

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.

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.

Hobgoblin (Imperial Guard)
|First appearance||X-Men #107 (Oct. 1977)|
|Created by||Chris Claremont and Dave Cockrum|
Hobgoblin is a Chameloid shapeshifter who is a member of the Shi'ar Imperial Guard. Created by Chris Claremont and Dave Cockrum, the character first appeared in X-Men #107 (Oct. 1977). Like many original members of the Imperial Guard, Hobgoblin is the analog of a character from DC Comics' Legion of Super-Heroes: in his case Chameleon Boy.
Part of the division of the Imperial Guard known as the Superguardians, Hobgoblin is amongst the first of the Imperial Guard encountered by the team of superhuman mutant adventurers known as the X-Men who sought to rescue the Princess-Majestrix Lilandra Neramani from her insane brother, then-Majestor D'Ken. After the battle, Lilandra takes over as Majestrix, and the Guard swears allegiance to her. Some time later, the Guardsmen again come into conflict with the X-Men regarding Dark Phoenix, this time at the behest of Empress Lilandra.
Later, when Deathbird becomes Empress, she commands the entire Imperial Guard, including Hobgoblin, to fight the combined forces of the Starjammers and Excalibur on Earth so that she can claim the power of the Phoenix Force for herself. The Guard are forced to retreat when Deathbird is put in danger (and she realizes that Lilandra is leading the rebels). (Some time later War Skrulls impersonating Charles Xavier and the Starjammers depose Deathbird and restore Lilandra Neramani to the throne. Deathbird cedes the empire back to Lilandra as she has grown bored of the bureaucracy.)
In Operation: Galactic Storm, Hobgoblin masquerades as a crewman aboard a Shi'ar ship that has invaded Earth space, but is captured by the Avengers. He is taken to Project Pegasus, where his fellow Guardsman Warstar has also been incarcerated. Imperial Guardsmen Nightside and Scintilla break into Pegasus and free their teammates. Impersonating the Kree geneticist Doctor Minerva, Hobgoblin induces the Kree Captain Atlas to accompany him aboard a Shi’ar ship, where the Kree are outnumbered by the Imperial Guard, who then claim Captain Marvel's Nega-Bands for themselves.
Some years later, Ronan the Accuser leads the Kree in a surprise attack against the Shi'ar, using the Inhumans as an army to disrupt the Shi'ar control of the Kree. He forces the Inhumans and their king, Black Bolt, to obey, or he will destroy Attilan and everyone in it. He compels Karnak, Gorgon, and Triton to covertly join the Imperial Guard, while Black Bolt and Medusa attempt the assassination of the Shi'ar ruler Lilandra at a ceremony ratifying an alliance between the Shi'ar and the Spartoi. Hobgoblin poses as Lilandra, and is killed in her place.
Hoder first appeared in Thor #274-275 (August–September 1978), and was adapted from mythology by Roy Thomas and John Buscema. He is a totally blind, elder Asgardian god.

A later model of the Hulk Robot was operated by a remote that is worn by an individual at a safe distance. During the time he was cured of his gamma-radiation condition, Bruce Banner donned the harness in order to fight Leader during his takeover of Gamma Base. Although the Hulk Robot fought Leader's Murder Module, it was destroyed in battle where the feedback nearly killed Bruce Banner.
Another version of the military's Hulk Robot came into the possession of the magician Kropotkin the Great during one of his visits to Gamma Base. Even though he hasn't been to Gamma Base for a while, Kropotkin the Great still owns this Hulk Robot.
Second Hulk Robot
Rusty and Arthur are two Maryland Institute of Technology students who constructed a Hulk robot to be the mascot for their school's all-star game, but Dr. Timothy Ryan considered it dangerous and wouldn't allow it. It was brought to life by cosmic energies released by the Eternals from Olympia when they emerged from the Uni-Mind. The energies granted the Hulk Robot sentience and increased its strength to rival the Hulk. It broke out of the lab and went on a rampage. When the National Guard couldn't stop the Hulk Robot, three Eternals members (Ikaris, Makkari, and Sersi) were called in. Both the Eternals and National Guard were losing until Zuras entered the fray. When it charged Zuras, cosmic energies leaked and it was rendered inert.
Later on, Doctor Doom found the Hulk Robot and dismantled and rebuilt it to serve him. He sent it to fight the Thing who thought it was the real Hulk after taking out the Grey Hulk. When Thing discovered it wasn't the real Hulk during battle, he tore it apart.
During the Acts of Vengeance event, Doctor Doom gave Jester II the Hulk Robot's parts and Jester rebuilt it (with the addition of humorous weapons in its arsenal) as a member of the Assembly of Evil. During the Avengers' press conference, the Hulk Robot attacked She-Hulk and had her on the ropes until Wasp attacked the Jester's remote control causing the Hulk Robot to go haywire. She-Hulk destroyed it by flinging it into an energy blast fired by Fenris.
The Hulk Robot (or the non-operating version) was seen in a museum the Eternals kept in Olympia which held reminders of foes and their weapons. Zuras displayed the robot to Joey Eliot.
During the Fall of the Hulks storyline, the Hulk Robot returned. When Galactus created the Cosmos Automaton to serve him as part of a later retelling of the Hulk Robot's origin as shown on the extraterrestrial disk, he abandoned it during a visit to one of the worlds that he would consume causing it to seek a new form for its body. After influencing Professor Gregson Gilbert into creating Dragon Man and finding it not to be a suitable candidate, it then influenced Mad Thinker into creating a Hulk Robot. Even though he didn't know why he created, Mad Thinker had it locked away. After the extraterrestrial disk was done showing this to Red Hulk and A-Bomb, Red Hulk considered decapitating it only for the Hulk Robot to activate upon absorbing the cosmic energy that was used to empower Red Hulk. This was all part of Leader and MODOK's plan to siphon the energy. Bruce Banner, Red Hulk, and A-Bomb looked at the enemies that they were facing and found a holographic shot of the Hulk Robot. Leader (alongside the other Intelligencia members) managed to obtain the Hulk Robot. The Leader used it to attack former member Doctor Doom when Skaar attacks. Doctor Doom fell victim to the Hulk Robot's "Poison Pill" when Bruce Banner arrived. The Leader then had the Hulk Robot carry away Doctor Doom.
Hulk Robot later helped MODOK and the Mad Thinker's Gammadroid subdue Red Hulk.
Red Hulk later drains the Gamma Energy from the Hulk Robot and rips it apart.
The Human Top (or just the Top) is a fictional character, a Golden Age superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character appeared in two stories published by Timely Comics (the predecessor of Marvel Comics) in 1940 and 1942, and not since then. His real name is Bruce Bravelle. He is called "the Human Top" in the story titles but just "the Top" within the body of the stories.
Bravelle's second appearance was in the backstory "The Red Terror" in Tough Kid Squad, cover-dated March 1942.
Bruce Bravelle was a test subject for a scientist who was trying to find a way to nourish the human body with electrical currents instead of food. In the middle of one of the tests, a bolt of lightning struck the castle in which the experiment was being conducted, causing an opposing magnetic flow and giving Bravelle the ability to spin around at superhuman speed when he crosses his wrists or is exposed to electricity. He can fly, drill his way through walls, and deflect bullets. He can operate underwater and travel at a speed of up to 250 miles per hour (400 km/h). His bullet-deflecting and wall-drilling powers are created by the intense whirlwind which he generates when spinning.
In his first adventure (published in 1940), the Top thwarts a bank robbery and is accused of being a thief when the bank manager personally keeps the returned money, but ultimately exposes the manager.[better source needed]
In his second adventure (published in 1942), the Top fought and defeated a sinister criminal mastermind called the Red Terror. The Red Terror and his goons derail and rob a train and escape in a zeppelin. The Top tracks them to their hideout in an abandoned mine and kills them all as they attempt to escape.
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.
The Hunter (Nina Smith) is a minor character within Marvel Comics. The character, created by Fiona Avery and Mark Brooks, first appeared in Amazing Fantasy Vol. 2 #3 (October 2004). She is Anya Corazon's critically-insensitive rival and Miguel Legar's girlfriend. Nina is a member of the Spider Society / WebCorps who has fought the Sisterhood of the Wasp. Nina later becomes the true receptacle of Araña's exoskeleton, allowing her to be the Spider Society's Hunter.
Hunter in Darkness
Hunter in Darkness is a semi-legendary, bipedal lupine creature native to the Canadian wilderness, first appearing in Wolverine (Vol. 2) #34 (December 1990). This humanoid, wolf-like being is animalistic though somewhat intelligent, alternating between mindless aggression and calculated hunting behaviors, even at one point seemingly forming an "alliance" with Elsie-Dee, Albert, and Wolverine. Among the Blackfoot in Canada, the Hunter is known as a boogeyman and the subject of legends. Wolverine first encountered the creature in the Canadian wilderness after escaping from the Weapon X project in a mostly feral state, at which point Wolverine freed the Hunter from a bear trap. Wolverine reencountered the Hunter years later. The Hunter was at one point captured and put on display in New York City, but it later escaped and returned to Canada.
Hunter the White Wolf
Employee of Zeus
|First appearance||X-Men #137 (Sept. 1980)|
|Created by||Chris Claremont and John Byrne|
|Species||Unidentified extraterrestrial race|
|Abilities||Channeling of bioelectricity into other living beings to shock and paralyze|
Hussar is a warrior serving in the Royal Elite of the Shi'ar Imperial Guard. She wields a whip that she uses to channel bioelectricity into her opponents to shock and paralyze. The character, created by Chris Claremont and John Byrne, first appeared in X-Men #137 (Sept. 1980).
She became a traitor and part of a renegade Imperial Guard faction which served Lord Samedar, Deathbird, and the Brood in their conspiracy to overthrow Shi'ar Princess-Majestrix Lilandra Neramani. The renegades battled the X-Men and are defeated. Despite her crimes, Hussar is reinstated with the Guard.
When Deathbird became Empress, Astra commanded the entire Imperial Guard to fight the combined forces of the Starjammers and Excalibur on Earth so that she could claim the power of the Phoenix Force for herself. The Guardsman Zenith was killed, and the Guard were forced to retreat when Deathbird was put in danger. (Some time later War Skrulls impersonating Charles Xavier and the Starjammers deposed Deathbird and restored Lilandra to the throne. Deathbird ceded the empire back to Lilandra as she had grown bored of the bureaucracy.)
Alongside the Avengers and the Imperial Guard, Hussar battled the Kree Starforce on Chandilar during the Kree/Shi'ar war. In the battle, Hussar teamed with the Living Lightning to defeat Supremor. Alongside the Imperial Guard, she then battled the Avengers on the Shi'ar throneworld of Chandilar and was this time defeated by the Living Lightning.
She, Warstar, Neutron, and Webwing were punished for their earlier treachery against Lilandra and sent to Earth, which had been turned into an intergalactic prison in the Maximum Security crossover in 2000. The four prisoners join up with the lone D'Bari survivor Starhammer, who plots revenge against Jean Grey for the crimes committed by Dark Phoenix.
Warstar, Hussar, and Neutron are later reinstated with the Guard; Webwing has not yet been seen again. Hussar was among the Imperial Guardsmen who attacked the Kree homeworld. During the assault, Hussar and Electron fought Ronan the Accuser, who was ultimately defeated by their teammate, Titan.
Hussar in other media
In the X-Men Animated Series, Hussar appears in "The Phoenix Saga" and "The Dark Phoenix Saga" alongside the rest of the Imperial Guard.
Hussar appears as a mini-boss in the video game Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, voiced by April Stewart. She is powerful and has a devastating whip attack. Hussar fights the heroes alongside Neutron on board a Shi'ar warship after helping Deathbird overthrow Lilandra Neramani. Hussar was the one that told the heroes that half the Imperial Guard were fools to not see Deathbird's motive. In addition, she also mentions that an Imperial Guard member named Guardian is only loyal to the throne and not who sits in it. A simulation disk has Storm fighting Hussar at Arcade's Murderworld.
