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?

Marvel needs to give you a comic, your ideas are great, and I really like the reference to Deathstrike’s Daredevil origin something that most people seams to have forgotten (or not read)

I *love* this stuff. Seriously, if DC or Marvel doesn't hire you to do turn-of-the-century-occult takes on their characters, you should just file the serial numbers off a bit more and do it as a creator-owned deal.

Wow, thanks a lot, haha. I do wish I could helm a project of that type. My forays into longterm plotting and so forth have been great fun (though telling of my shortcomings as a writer). Hopefully my Space Ninja series will grow my skills.

Red Omega. Absolutely brilliant. Even though I liked him when I was younger, the more I thought about it, Omega Red did seem kind of dumb honestly. Especially his hair... This however makes me wish they let your write a followup to Marvel 1602.

He never feels like a whole idea, that's the problem. He should be waaaay scarier than he is. He's a serial killer who was transformed into a death machine.
Marvel has always had trouble being as scary with its villains as DC manages.

Yeah. His concept is good but the execution is full of holes, which is a very Marvel experience unfortunately. It seems like DC likes to reinvent their characters often, either getting rid of old, corny or stupid continuity in favor of making the characters better somehow (sometimes not always better but whatever) like what they did with Dr. Light which I actually liked. Marvel however seems to showcase ridiculous and over the top things but without fully thinking it through but doesn't want to break it's continuity ever. I can't really explain it I guess but it just seems like they both have very different directions for the way they want things written and Marvel has a tendency to create a character and just keep adding more ridiculous stuff on top of the other (hence why they have so many clones and robots and crap). I am not saying I don't like Marvel, I actually like it more than DC most of the time, I just don't understand Marvel sometimes. The constant big events are really bugging me.

Yout took them, stripped them down to the barest essentials(some even further) then built them back up with steam fuelled imagination. Oh yes i say, i say again oh yes.

Lady Deathstrike especially needs a good reboot. Her story is all kinds of messed up. Which is what happens when a Wolverine writer pulls a minor Daredevil character out of the ether, completely changes her personality, motivations and appearance and trots her out as a new villain. The original Yuriko Oyama has the whole scar-on-the-face deal, something that is simply undone completely by the Wolverine folks.

"We need a character! search the vaults! Now change every aspect! There we go!" Happens way too often. Ands its also the easiest way for them not to get bitched at for making a character too much like a previous one. Its kind of a put a frog in boiling water situation, if they pretend the character was an existing one they slowly change it to what they want then its so much easier.

Also, I wouldn't really consider Deadpool to be a Wolverine villain... actually, I wouldn't really consider Deapool a villain at all.
