Victorian Wolverine Foes by genesischant Victorian Wolverine Foes by genesischant
Turn of the century occult villain Omega Red, Sabretooth, Cyber, and Lady Deathstrike-- all villainous enemies of Wolverine.

To recap, Wolverine in my "Turn of the Century Occult Hero-verse" is Lucan, an amnesiac stevedore with strange tattoos that protect him from mortal harm. He cannot die, and seems to have lived an exceedingly long time. Further, he has abnormally high strength and agility and very keen senses. He has recently taken up with Charles Excalibur's League of Para-Natural Persons.

The Red Omega is a horrible demonic spirit summoned forth from the hell dimensions that border our own. A combination of ritual druidic magic conducted by a shadowy society (they identify themselves by the Greek letter 'Chi' ) and a series of gruesome murders perpetrated by the madman Arkady Rossovich provided the passageway into our reality that the monster required. The Red Omega is so otherworldly and evil that an aura of death and fear radiates from its very presence. It seems to find special delight in seeking out Lucan and tormenting him and those he loves. It has hinted on many occasions that it has known Lucan for a very long time and indeed may hold some of the secrets of Lucan's hidden past.

Viktor Grey Creed, aka Sawtooth, is a man of the sea by profession, and bestial maniac by vocation. His hatred of Lucan runs deep, and he will stop at nothing to hurt him. Both men possess the same weird and twisting tattoos that grant them effective immortality, and the same killer instincts and skills. Sawtooth remembers little of his life before the day they both lost their memories, just bits and pieces. One memory fragment haunts him-- Lucan and himself locked in mortal combat, dressed in furs and knee-deep in gore.

Silas Burr took the name Strongarm in his boxing days, but he liked to go by it in his new job as a Pinkerton agent as well. He was a bully by nature, and he enjoyed seeing the fear in the eyes of those he was payed to intimidate, coerce, and kill. This went well for Silas until he came up against a new agent named Lucan who was mightily displeased with the methods that the agency used. Lucan smashed up his arms and his livelihood for his trouble. Luckily, Silas knew of an organization that practiced some of the stranger arts, and had a new pair of arms crafted through the use of alchemical properties from the flesh of corpses. He now looks forward to settling the score.

Yuanjun Hei Feng, known to many as Lady Dark Wind, is an undying Jiang Shi, a member of the undead. Her father was a great Kung Fu master, but he was also a dangerous madman. He foresaw his own and his children's deaths using forbidden magic, and this drove him insane. He wrote the manner of death on each of their faces in caustic ink, scarring them all permanently. On Yuanjun's face he wrote "崖" meaning "cliff". When Lord Dark Wind killed Lucan's own master (for he was traversing the Orient at that time), Yuanjun came to him to beg his help in stopping her father. Lucan succeeded in killing the Lord, but Yuanjun died as well, falling from the cliff on which they battled onto the rocks below. Her death triggered the curse her father had bestowed upon her, to return to life to continue his own mad work.

This is very very cool. I am loving your ideas in this series.

Have you done Iron Fist yet? With his escaped slave partner Luke Cage?
