I really do not know much about this comic, I bought the first one cuz I was a huge fan of the artists. At the time I didn't know who Faction was, but many people swear that this was one of the best new titles to come out in a while. Why did it end? Cuz it wasn't selling or Matt wanted it to end? Mostly both, but it’s so hard to start a new title nowadays, which kinda sucks. Oh well.

A former Little Miss Texas at Eight, Two Time Tiny Junior Miss Ll'L America and Teenager of the year many times. Even had her own CD as well.

Becky has been programmed with how to behave her whole life. Everything from Becky’s childhood was due to her father wanting to see his daughter become a star, not because she wanted it herself. Becky's father also forged documents claiming Becky to be a year younger than her actual age. Her secret has since come to light due in large part of a sex tape Becky made. Thus Becky has lost many of the titles she formally held.

174. Lois London aka Mortis (10 points)

loislondon.jpgLois London is the younger, half-sister of the Dazzler, born to Dazzler's mother, Katherine Blaire, and Katherine's lover, Nicholas Brown. At a young age, Lois watched her father beat her mother, and her mother spiral into alcoholism and drug addiction. Eventually, Katherine sobered up, and took Lois with her as she fled her abusive lover. Katherine took on a new identity, Barbara London, and in turn changed Lois' surname as well. Lois grew up with Barbara a normal teenager, and eventually left for college. Lois, a big Dazzler fan, never knew Alison Blaire was her half-sister as Barbara was too ashamed to discuss her sordid past. After the Dazzler reunited with Barbara, Lois introduced herself. Lois, however, had no idea about the Dazzler's mutant powers until Alison used them to help the pair in a building fire. Lois kept Alison's mutant powers a secret.

Lois soon became a target for trouble as the Dazzler's then-enemy, Rogue attacked Lois in her dorm room. Dazzler, with the help of Luke Cage and Iron Fist, was able to evade Rogue and draw her focus from Lois, as Lois watched helplessly. Lois soon became plagued by headaches and migraines, which she was hoping was a simple case of mono. When leaving a Dazzler concert and walking the streets alone, Lois was attacked by a hobo. Attempting to get away, Lois's hand crackled with a mysterious energy; when she touched the hobo, he suddenly dropped dead. Lois then fled to Alison's apartment for safety, confused and panicked over what occurred. The Dazzler then decided to take her younger sister, and flee New York. While stopped at a motel, Lois attacked and killed the motel manager's cat that scratched her. Because of this, Alison took Lois and fled again. Later, mysterious photos emerged of Lois killing the hobo in New York, with a blackmail message. The blackmailer demanded that the two sisters assassinate a man in California, or else the photos would be given to the police, and Lois would be arrested. Fearing what the judicial system would do to a mutant, Alison convinced Lois to go along with the plan.

Lois's world turned upside down when she discovered the target was her own father, Nicholas Brown. Brown had sent an assistant to search for Lois, but the assistant went rogue and attempted to gain money in blackmailing Lois into killing her own father and his boss. The plan foiled, Brown and Lois were reunited, with the Dazzler in the middle. Although she had been protected by her half-sister, and just reunited with an abusive father she barely knew, Lois eventually decided to stay with Brown. Who was now very wealthy and well-connected in California, offered Lois a sense of security she needed. Lois and Alison then parted ways, with Alison angry and hurt. The two women have not spoken since

Lois recently appeared along with others with the ability to kill using their mutant powers, alongside Selene. They are acting as her personal bodyguards while she continues her plans to resurrect dead mutants. Lois is using the codename Mortis.

173. Armor/Osaka/Sarah Stacy (10 points each - 1 first place slot each)


Hisako was a mutant student at the Xavier Institute who dreamed of one day becoming an X-Man. Along with her best friend, Wing, Hisako was attacked in the halls of the Xavier Institute by the alien villain, Ord of the Breakworld. Hisako and Wing attempted to oppose Ord, but were overpowered. While both teenagers survived the attack, Wing was injected with a "cure" for his mutant ability of flight. Despondent, he committed suicide after some goading from a Danger Room hologram of Hisako. In the wake of this tragedy, Hisako, her teacher Kitty Pryde, and several Xavier students found themselves trapped in a sentient and hostile Danger Room with Wing's reanimated corpse. Danger, as the intelligence is named by the X-Men, eventually leaves the Institute.

Some time after, Hisako finds another of her classmates, codenamed Blindfold, 'crying' in a bathroom (unusual because Blindfold has no eyes with which to cry). Suddenly a mind controlled Beast attacks them. Using her powers, including a blast of energy from her psionic body armor, Hisako fights off the enraged Beast before ultimately fainting. After the students escape they meet up with Wolverine whose mind is being manipulated so that he thinks he is only five years old. As they all go down to the basement to witness the final confrontation, Blindfold is teleported away with the X-Men to a S.W.O.R.D. ship, by Agent of S.W.O.R.D., Abigail Brand and her crew. She takes the X-Men to the Breakworld, so they can help stop Ord from destroying Earth.
After an extended trip on Ord's planet, Breakworld, Wolverine makes Hisako a member of the X-Men. Hisako takes the codename Armor which Wolverine comments on by saying that calling herself "Armor" is like calling himself "Claws". Armor has proven herself a valuable X-Member, despite her age.

Armor was also recently seen fighting the Acolytes alongside Kitty Pryde, Colossus and the other students of Xavier's Institute. Armor had been specifically fighting Unuscione, who has similar powers to her.

Hisako's psionic armor acts as an extension of (although can be much larger than) her own body, which enhances her strength level and resistance to injury. While using her armor, Hisako has demonstrated the ability to hurl Wolverine and even assisted Colossus in restraining a small ship capable of breaking orbit from lifting off. Her armor is generally impervious to most damage (as long as she can maintain it), but Wolverine's claws have been shown to be able to pierce it, but he himself is unable too. Her armor is made from psionic energy, and has said it's her "ancestors", most probably meaning that's where the psionic energy comes from. Hisako can also release her force field into a concussive blast of energy, but it takes a lot of concentration


osaka.jpg"As far as I am concerned Osaka is one of the greatest characters ever, in anything. I never laughed as hard as the first time I read and watched Azumanga Daioh, to me she is that funny. I know she'll probably end up with the points I'm giving her and that's it, but eh, as long as she gets some respect here everything is okay. She is slow, silly, stupid and easily to entertain, but all that makes her so lovable - the fact that she can make staring into nothing fun should speak for herself. All in all....there just is not a thing about Osaka I do not love..."

Azumanga Daioh chronicles the everyday life in an unnamed Japanese high school of six girls and two of their teachers: child prodigy Chiyo Mihama and her struggle to fit in with girls five years older, reserved Sakaki and her obsession with the cute animals who seem to hate her, spacey Ayumu "Osaka" Kasuga with a skewed perspective on the world, Koyomi "Yomi" Mizuhara's aggravation at an annoying best friend, Tomo Takino, whose energy is rivaled only by her lack of sense, sporty Kagura and her one-sided rivalry with Sakaki, and their homeroom teacher Yukari Tanizaki and her friend, physical education teacher Minamo Kurosawa. Secondary characters include Kimura-sensei, a creepy male teacher with an obsession with teenage girls, and Kaorin, a classmate with a crush on Sakaki.

The story covers three years of tests, talking between classes, culture festivals, and athletic events at school, as well as time spent traveling to and from school, studying at Chiyo's house, and vacations spent at Chiyo's summer beach home and the fictional theme park Magical Land, concluding with the graduation of the main cast. It is generally realistic in tone, marked by occasional bursts of surrealism and absurdity, such as Osaka imagining Chiyo's ponytails being "unscrewed" from her head and an episode featuring the characters' New Year's dreams.

Sarah Stacy aka Gwen and Norman’s love child

sarahstacy.jpgBefore Gwen Stacy died she and Norman had a little something on the side which led to Gwen being pregnant. Then she gave birth in France and had twins which were born early but fully grown babies, Sarah and Gabriel. Then Norman, after Gwen's death and aware of the situation came to raise them and convince them that Peter Parker was there father and Spider-Man killed their mother. Which made the twins want revenge. They both were born with the goblin powers in their system and because of the goblin accelerated healing made them age a lot faster. Sarah is the smart one and also she looks just like her mother.

When full grown both of them went to get revenge on who they thought was their father. After a long fight over, Peter convinced them that he was not their father. Gabriel figured out that their real father was the Green Goblin and took the family's business and became the Grey Goblin. Sarah objected and in the end the battle was taken to the bridge where their mother had been killed. Being thrown off the bride like her mother Sarah fell to her doom. She was saved by Spider-Man twice the first was when she fell off the bridge and then Spider-Man donated his blood to her because she lost a lot of blood because of a bullet wound. Her blood would only accept Spider-Man's so that's why he donated it.

Sarah went back to France and according to the authorities she tried to kill herself. What really happened was that she had growing pains because of her accelerated growth because of the Osborn gene in her. That's why she had to take pills to relieve the pain. When Spider-Man got there she explained that the pills were given to her because when she was younger she and her brother got along with the wrong crowd. Another secret she was keeping was her brother in her house where he was suffering a lot of pain. Mary Jane arrived just when Sarah confessed to Peter she was in love with him and kissed him.

Mad about it MJ left. Spider-Man and Sarah were looking for the people who she messed around with when she was a child because they were trying to kill her. Sarah came back to the mansion only to find that Gabriel thought that MJ was her. Gabriel left with a glider and Sarah and Mary Jane reconciled and became friends. Before the Parker family left Spider-Man gave her a picture of her when she was a baby with her mother. Then Sarah started working for the government after Spider-Man's good-byes.
