Villains in Spider-Island: Heroes for Hire #1

Post by Paul Bourcier » Sat Oct 08, 2011 5:34 pm

On page 4 of Spider-Island: Heroes for Hire #1, we see our heroes fighting Chemistro and two other villains. One has a green fish-like head and wears red, robe-like attire. The other wears a blue costume with brown gloves, brown collar, and brown striping on the sleeves and the top of his head mask. Who are these guys?

Here's a link to a scan of page 4:

The dialogue makes it clear that they're fighting both villians and infected civilians. Aside from Chemistro, I'm not sure who's supposed to be a villain and who's supposed to be an infected civilian.

The fish-head is Mr. Fish from Power Man 29
The striped sleeve hanging in the air on page 3 panel 2 is likely the Cheshire Cat from Power Man 37

I don't recognize the character in blue and brown/red with his two-pronged fork

Paladin is also fighting a fanged character in a hat and fur collar that looks familiar.

I guess they're all old Luke Cage villains.

Sounds like the members of the "Flashmob" that Nightshade organized in Shadowlands: Power Man #2 - Mr. Fish, Spear, Commanche, Chemistro, Cheshire Cat, Cockroach Hamilton. The fanged guy sounds like it might be Piranha Jones, though the clothes aren't a good match, and he'd need to have recovered from being killed by Terror back in Terror Inc. #7.

Oh, and it's not Mr. Fish (Mortimer Norris) from Power Man #29. He died in a fall. It's his brother, Bill Norriss, who debuted in Daughters of the Dragon #4.

That's it exactly! And Nightshade is with them. The ones we can make out distinctly are Nightshade, Chemistro, Mr. Fish, and Spear. Thanks, Loki.

Looking again I recognize the fanged guy from his eyes and dodgy 'stache. It's Cornell Cottomouth

who also turned up last in Shadowlands: Heroes for Hire, though not as part of the Flashmob.

Comanche is the guy Falcon is tossing about in the middle panel. He's just upside-down.
