Captain Nemo, The Prisoner, Dr. Who, The Man From UNCLE, James Bond, Tevye, Achilles.

Peter: Is this something to do with actors playing different nationalities?

You're on the right track with actors, but it's unrelated to nationality.  Actors who played these roles have one striking thing in common.

Characters with changing, disputed backstories?


That is not what I had in mind.

Indeed. For what I'm going for, I had to look far and wide to make it to five names.

Hawkman, Falcon, Black Widow, Iron Fist and Captain Britain

You were right that you were wrong. (Their fashion sense has nothing to do with it.)

Spider-Man, Black Bolt, Hawkman, Dr. Fate, E-Man, Superboy, and Ka-Zar.


A red-headed love interest. Mary Jane, Medusa, Shayera, Inza, Nova, Lana (or Knockout, depending on which Superboy you had in mind) and Shanna.

(And now that I think about it, Spider-Man has also locked lips with Black Widow (sort of - she wasn't herself at the time), Shanna and, depending on how you interpret the end of ASM #203, Dazzler...)

To quote "The Thing That Couldn't Die," I should have quit while I was a head... :-)

Dave, nicely done, sir! You found love interests for the characters I hadn't thought of! I had completely forgotten Natasha's time as Nancy Rushman, and I really liked that story.

Probably another softball to the amazing Mr. Phelps, but...

Firestorm, Starhawk, the Infinity Man, Triad, and the Uni-Mind.

Firestorm, Starhawk, the Infinity Man, Triad, and the Uni-Mind.

They are all characters that are made up from 2 or more other people being combined into one thing/person.

Yeah, that's what I would have said... ;-)

Don't know about the "distinctive feature" Rick Senger's looking for, I think the only other active one is mine (which I don't want to give away yet - but the "no" posts did have hints), so here are three more from me:

#1 Lashina, Atom, Multiplex, Thinker, Javelin

#2 Bronze Tiger, Nightshade, Poison Ivy, Count Vertigo, Penguin

(Note that there's a common thread between the first two.)

#3 Shang Chi, Thor, Captain Atom, the Flash (Barry), Hercules (Marvel's version)

That was my guess but I couldnít find any info on the Infinity Man that supported my theory.
