Respect the Death's Head "Family Tree"

Respect the Death’s Head Family Tree


So, some of you may be asking, “Who the heck is Death’s Head?” Other, slightly more informed, asking “Why does he have a family tree, as Digi calls it?”

This is to answer those questions and more.



Death’s Head is a Marvel UK character. But he spawned a series of successions, and the incarnations of the Death’s Head family, as well as the history itself, is complicated. They time-jump constantly, re-write timelines, etc. This thread will be roughly in chronological order, and will detail the storylines as much as the feats and scans.

The thread will be organized as follows:

I. Death’s Head
II. Death’s Head II
III. Death Wreck
IV. Death Metal
V. Death’s Head 3.0
VI. Other Information (Bios and Info on related characters, timelines, etc.)


All scans are organized in (rough) chronological order.

The first 2 have (by far) the most appearances and feats, and they’re my favorites of the bunch.

The timeline changes, alternate histories, and various incarnations make all of this nearly impossible to fully understand. The characters all have convoluted histories. But I’ve done as good a job as possible piecing together the various aspects of it to make it understandable. For those interested just in feats, they’re here. For those who want more info, the various descriptions and bios will provide sufficient reading.

Separate Respect Threads are being created for DHI and DHII.
They are here:
Death’s Head I – http://www.killermovies.com/forums/f98/t449954.html
Death’s Head II – http://www.killermovies.com/forums/f98/t461697.html
…these are organized differently (strength, durability, speed/skill, etc.) rather than organized chronologically. They ignore the storyline stuff and focus solely on feats and scans.

Without patting myself on the back too much, this is a great Respect Thread! Nearly every feat ever for all of these characters. Enjoy!

….

Death’s Head I

Bios: http://www.internationalhero.co.uk/d/dethhead.htm
http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix3/deathsheadfpa.htm
Picture: http://img291.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dheadjk7.jpg
Description: Death’s Head is a “Freelance Peacekeeping Agent”, which is his fancy term for Bounty Hunter. He hates being called a bounty hunter. He’s strong (not quite Class 100 from what I can tell, but at least Class 50-ish, even though his bio only has him around Class 25), durable as all hell, can fly, has a sense of humor, and has a multi-function arm with more options on it than Mega-Man on a bender.


Origin
This back story is told years later via a computer that had recorded Death’s Head’s entire life. DHII is watching it to learn about the original.

The following explanation is better to read than listen to me summarize it. After his creation, he was stolen, programmed to fight, and participated in an intergalactic robot war. Death’s Head actually got his start in Transformers comics, and this is the “robot wars” referred to in the origin scans. At the end of the Transformer wars, an explosion threw him into a time vortex. Inside the time flux, he was tricked (and shrunk to normal size) by a man named The Doctor (unrelated to Wildstorm) and sent into the year 8162 where he first appeared in mainstream comics.
(“Dragon’s Claws #4-5” is his first appearance in the mainstream Marvel Universe, and it is recreated in the last scan here).

Death’s Head Feats & Battles:
I try to go roughly in chronological order for each character. I will display the feats, but will often supplement the battle or scan with information on the story. These are primarily from his solo series and various other appearances.

Transformers, yes?
Let’s start with some of Death’s Head’s Transformers appearances. I have no idea if this would be considered Marvel canon or not, but he has essentially the same power set and skills as he does in the Marvel universe, only he’s enlarged to be the same size as the Transformers.

I’d like to give credit for these to the person who made the respect thread on the Hero Chat forums.
http://herochat.com/phpBB2/viewtopi...asc&start=0
The Marvel stuff is all mine, but I borrowed these Transformers fights from that thread.

#1 – Vs. 2 Transformers called Cyclonus and Scourge
http://img107.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t11pg6.jpg
http://img107.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t12tl5.jpg
http://img50.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t13qh4.jpg

#2 – A fight against Bumble Bee
http://img378.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t22ni6.jpg
http://img68.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t23ca1.jpg

#3 – Vs. a bot named Sound Wave
http://img96.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t31ua2.jpg
http://img50.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t32yc7.jpg
http://img378.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t33si3.jpg
http://img50.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t34iy2.jpg
http://img378.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t35jq4.jpg

#4 – vs. Galvatron
http://img50.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t41qi5.jpg
http://img67.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t42ut8.jpg

#5 – Vs. Rodimus Prime
http://img68.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t51qo0.jpg
http://img68.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t52pf5.jpg
http://img68.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t53ri0.jpg
http://img378.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t54sl2.jpg
http://img484.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t55di9.jpg
http://img74.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t56ys6.jpg
http://img378.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t57xl1.jpg

#6 – Cyclonus, Scourge, and Rodimus again
http://img74.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t61nt9.jpg
http://img96.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t62rg1.jpg
http://img378.imageshack.us/my.php?image=t63ff6.jpg

Basically, it’s a lot of Death’s Head whupping the hell out of Transformers. They’re afraid of him. Keep in mind, he was enlarged to Transformer-size for these fights. He got shrunk down before making the switch to Marvel.

Lastly from his Transformers run, a bizarre feat where he projects himself onto the astral plane to do battle with Unicron:
http://i272.photobucket.com/albums/...s/dh_astral.jpg


On to Marvel, Yes?

This is from Dragon’s Claws #5, his first appearance in a mainstream Marvel comic.
A decent skill feat:
http://img413.imageshack.us/my.php?image=ic19dt3.jpg
…and a durability feat. He takes the explosion at point-blank range and is still moving. In the end, the building falls on him, but we find out later that he survived.
http://img260.imageshack.us/my.php?image=ic110ar1.jpg
http://img260.imageshack.us/my.php?image=ic111ux7.jpg

Solo Series:
Following Dragon’s Claws, Death’s Head got his own series. It lasted about 12 issues, and he had plenty of cameos in other comics as well. He starts in the year 8162, and eventually ends up stranded in the early 90’s where he meets the Fantastic Four. Reed agrees to send him back to 8162, but tries to abort the time travel process when he learns that DH is a bounty hunter who kills people. The time jump is only partially successful, and it sends DH to the year 2020, where he would remain until his death at the hands of Death’s Head II (Minion).

Death’s Head #1

His first action as a bounty hunter:
http://img458.imageshack.us/my.php?image=11xd9.jpg
http://img177.imageshack.us/my.php?image=12va3.jpg
http://img458.imageshack.us/my.php?image=13bf7.jpg
http://img458.imageshack.us/my.php?image=14vd7.jpg
http://img458.imageshack.us/my.php?image=15on6.jpg
http://img399.imageshack.us/my.php?image=16ed8.jpg

A hit that he made to “get publicity”. Shows some ingenuity, and also shows that he has metal-melting acid pellets in his arsenal.
http://img338.imageshack.us/my.php?image=17rf0.jpg
http://img458.imageshack.us/my.php?image=18pn9.jpg
http://img107.imageshack.us/my.php?image=19ew8.jpg

Issue #2

This is a great fight to establish his powers and arsenal some more. In this fight, he uses his rocket boots (which allow for flight), a rope attached to two balls for tripping people up, an axe (in his arm-piece, as with any of his weapons), knockout gas from a hole in his hand, and the ability to see others without his eyes (he has omni-directional senses, but more on that later)
http://img458.imageshack.us/my.php?image=21ni4.jpg
http://img237.imageshack.us/my.php?image=22cm0.jpg
http://img412.imageshack.us/my.php?image=23eu2.jpg
http://img237.imageshack.us/my.php?image=24xf4.jpg
http://img250.imageshack.us/my.php?image=25ng7.jpg
http://img385.imageshack.us/my.php?image=26jh7.jpg
…it’s important to note that after he nearly died in Dragons Claws #5, he was rebuilt with “improvements” as he calls them. So prior to his solo series, it’s unlikely he had such enhancements as the knockout gas and possibly others.

#3
Grenade launcher attachment:
http://img412.imageshack.us/my.php?image=31li4.jpg
http://img385.imageshack.us/my.php?image=32gj0.jpg

#4
Rocket boots again, this time in the open air:
http://img401.imageshack.us/my.php?image=41sz7.jpg

#5
The boots work underwater:
http://img401.imageshack.us/my.php?image=51pz7.jpg
http://img251.imageshack.us/my.php?image=52zz3.jpg

#6
This is an extended fight sequence with a few enhanced adversaries. Among other things, we once again see that he can detect a person without actually seeing them. Omni-directional sensors provide his “vision”. He also has his hand blasted off, then replaces it with a close-range rocket launcher.
http://img401.imageshack.us/my.php?image=61qr5.jpg
http://img258.imageshack.us/my.php?image=62np3.jpg
http://img258.imageshack.us/my.php?image=63mz7.jpg
http://img376.imageshack.us/my.php?image=64jo6.jpg
http://img409.imageshack.us/my.php?image=65wu2.jpg
http://img376.imageshack.us/my.php?image=66zo7.jpg

Later in the same issue, he has what is probably his most impressive strength feat ever. The first panel is a speed/skill feat dodging multiple lasers, then he picks up a tank (at an end, not in the middle for more leverage) and effortlessly chucks it at a dude. This feat would need probably circa Class 25 strength to pull off in the manner he does. Beyond that, it’s mostly just speculation, but considering some of the people he fights (later on) I think that Class 25 would be a low-end estimate for him.

Death’s Head continued…

Issue #9
We’re skipping ahead a few issues because there’s nothing terribly feat-worthy in between.

Death’s Head, at this point, is stranded in the 616 universe, and is on top of the Baxter Building. The automated defenses kick in and DH takes out a few, dodges some more, and finds his way in.
http://img237.imageshack.us/my.php?image=91ip0.jpg
http://img267.imageshack.us/my.php?image=92gi5.jpg
http://img297.imageshack.us/my.php?image=93bl5.jpg

Once inside, a series of misunderstandings leads to a fight with the FF. There’s some mad durability going on here. Full punch from Thing, sending him through multiple rooms. Then a blast from Johnny. No ill effects. Note also that his mace damages Thing (the first scan). He proceeds to beat Johnny (off-panel), pin Thing to the ground, and sends an electrical shock through Reed.
http://img361.imageshack.us/my.php?image=94is5.jpg
http://img160.imageshack.us/my.php?image=95sa7.jpg
http://img160.imageshack.us/my.php?image=96fl7.jpg
http://img297.imageshack.us/my.php?image=97uf6.jpg

He later interfaces with the FF’s computer systems and calls them “basic”
http://img160.imageshack.us/my.php?image=98pa6.jpg
http://img297.imageshack.us/my.php?image=99bp2.jpg

#10
As I described before, the FF were going to send him back to 8162, but Reed tried to stop the time device once he realized DH was a bounty hunter. The time jump then became partial and put DH in 2020. His first fight there is against Iron Man 2020. IM actually rips DH’s head off, but via his omni-directional senses, DH continues the fight and eventually puts his head back on. They end up breaking off the fight and joining forces, but IM 2020 was bleeding and with his head re-attached DH seemed to get the better of the fight.
http://img361.imageshack.us/my.php?image=101yt1.jpg
http://img476.imageshack.us/my.php?image=102oc9.jpg

http://img401.imageshack.us/my.php?image=104px4.jpg
http://img252.imageshack.us/my.php?image=105lp9.jpg

Death’s Head: Body In Question
I don’t really know when this arc takes place, but it was sometime after his coming to 2020. It involves DH’s “parents” and their hunt for DH (who has since become entirely independent, stripping him of his original purpose).

Just a sweet panel of DH from this arc:
http://img252.imageshack.us/my.php?image=biq1ya8.jpg

Speed feat for his flight:
http://img252.imageshack.us/my.php?image=biq2ay3.jpg
http://img254.imageshack.us/my.php?image=biq3bu7.jpg

A funny line of dialogue as he defeats his “father”
http://img411.imageshack.us/my.php?image=funny1jb3.jpg

Incomplete Death’s Head #12
Backstory:
The “Incomplete Death’s Head” series takes place years after the original DH has died. Death’s Head II (Minion) stumbles onto a data archives with the memories of the original DH and is going through it. Meanwhile another story is taking place that he (Minion) is oblivious to, putting his partner Tuck in danger.

Long story short, a time paradox (that would take way too long to explain) brings the original DH back for real in the final issue. Both Death’s Heads fight alongside one another against a mechanical beasty intent on DH’s death.

This was intended as a “sending off” party for DH, since his death came suddenly and left fans with very little closure for the character.

http://img172.imageshack.us/my.php?image=ic121si4.jpg
http://img367.imageshack.us/my.php?image=ic122al1.jpg
http://img77.imageshack.us/my.php?image=ic123ko7.jpg
http://img338.imageshack.us/my.php?image=ic124bx5.jpg
http://img253.imageshack.us/my.php?image=ic125ej6.jpg

Misc.
The following are feats that I haven’t been able to place chronologically, or that I forgot to label when I was scanning them in.

Speed/Skill feat as he dodges laser fire from a rival bounty hunter.
http://img367.imageshack.us/my.php?image=ic81uj8.jpg

Shrugs off a blast from a guy named Lightmaster. Earlier, one of his blasts had knocked She-Hulk off her feet and several feet back. It’s been pointed out that the She-Hulk blast was with 2 hands, not 1. But still, it’s probably reasonable to assume his durability is at least on par with She-Hulk, possibly greater.
http://img172.imageshack.us/my.php?...blast1feem2.jpg

Not sure if this is a feat, but it’s amusing.
http://img338.imageshack.us/my.php?...shank1rvni4.jpg




That’s it. Respect Death’s Head, Yes?

Death’s Head II (aka Minion)

Bio: http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix/dhminion.htm
Picture: http://img133.imageshack.us/my.php?...thshead2cj7.jpg
Origin & Description: The “Minion” cyborg was created by the A.I.M. corporation (Advanced Idea Mechanics) in the year 2020. The pre-cognitive division of AIM had foreseen a great threat to AIM’s safety (later revealed to be the character Charnel). DHII was created to stop him.

To do this, DHII was programmed to assimilate the “instincts” (skills, mannerisms, memories, etc.) of 106 of the deadliest people in the galaxy throughout time (AIM could time-jump). Among the people he assimilated were the original Death’s Head and the entire information cache of Reed Richards’ computer (616 universe, circa 1992). Thus, he has the combined combat skill of countless warriors, as well as Reed’s scientific knowledge and many others.

The personality of the original Death’s Head became the dominant personality when he was assimilated (due to his cyborg nature), thus the name “Death’s Head II”. Not all of the original’s personality traits survived, but the guiding instincts and thoughts are those of the original DH.

Death's Head II Feats & Battles:

This is a personnel file on “The Minion Project” at A.I.M. It’s handy because it offers a quick description of the majority of DHII’s powers and abilities.
http://img69.imageshack.us/my.php?image=00ja5.jpg

Limited series #1

The first we ever see of Minion (not yet Death’s Head). He is assimilating a person’s instincts with his cranial siphon.
http://img69.imageshack.us/my.php?image=11xg9.jpg

Death’s Head tries to fight him, but Minion teleports away. We later learn that this is built in to Minion, it’s not AIM teleporting him around.
http://img442.imageshack.us/my.php?image=12jq0.jpg

Punks and then assimilates a 4-armed barbarian named Lehdrox, for his fighting skill and aggression.

The Death of Death’s Head

This is a (rather anti-climactic) fight between the two cyborgs, ending with a Minion victory. He then assimilates the original DH. Shortly after, Death’s Head would become the dominant personality in Minion due to his cyborg nature.

Anyway, after all that build-up for DH in the first section, Minion sh*t-kicks him in this fight. It’s barely even close.

http://img401.imageshack.us/my.php?image=110yw4.jpg

The Death of Death’s Head (revisited)

Backstory:
Much later into Death’s Head II’s solo series, he time travels back to the A.I.M. building where he was created. He’s trying to find out which human corpse was used to make him (i.e. the person he originally was).

Meanwhile, the original fight between the 2 Death’s Heads is going on. Better artwork, and a bit more sympathetic to DH (he still gets owned, but he “looks” a bit better in the fight).
http://img339.imageshack.us/my.php?image=i1yp3.jpg
http://img61.imageshack.us/my.php?image=i2kf0.jpg
http://img340.imageshack.us/my.php?image=i3iy9.jpg
http://img338.imageshack.us/my.php?image=i4kt9.jpg
http://img340.imageshack.us/my.php?image=i5oo0.jpg

Limited Series #2
Story:
He makes a time travel trip to 616, circa 1992 in an attempt to assimilate Reed Richards. He ends up downloading Reed’s computer database instead for his scientific knowledge, and Reed helps Death’s Head gain control of the Minion cyborg.

Here he displays some impressive running speed, matching speed with a car that Reed had floored the gas pedal
http://img340.imageshack.us/my.php?image=21dw6.jpg

Vs. The Thing. This is impressive because he makes Thing bleed, then simply overpowers him in a grapple situation and throws him off a bridge. So DHII > Thing in terms of raw strength (and pretty much any other category too).

A teleport, both temporal and spatial (he time travels and teleports) under his own power from Reed’s lab.
http://img249.imageshack.us/my.php?image=27kp5.jpg

Limited Series #3
Death’s Head II tells his brief history in his own words to his eventual partner, Tuck.
http://img408.imageshack.us/my.php?image=31cg6.jpg

Here we see the birth of Charnel, a mixture of the original Death’s Head’s body and the magical power of Baron Von Strucker. Charnel later becomes a herald (or greater) level being. He also kills Death’s Head’s (original) partner Spratt.
http://img249.imageshack.us/my.php?image=32oy2.jpg
http://img249.imageshack.us/my.php?image=30oh2.jpg

Limited Series #4
Story:
Various groups of heroes (Death’s Head included) gather to fight Charnel.

But first, a mix-up good guy fight. Here Wolverine breaks a claw on Death’s Head’s body.

Yeah. Suck it Wolverine fans.

Actually, this was an alternate universe Wolverine, so it may not have been full-strength adamantium, and it’s likely Charnel’s magics weakened it as well.

Still, fun stuff, and it shows us that his molybdenum arm isn’t much less durable than adamantium, and probably considerably stronger than, say, titanium:
http://img249.imageshack.us/my.php?image=41mh1.jpg

Durability feat vs. Charnel. Gets blasted to hell, heals a bit, and is basically just pissed. This was immediately after Charnel had killed Rhino and She-Hulk, to put it in perspective.

Death’s Head II continued…

Solo Series Issue #1

A couple of no-name mutants, look to be copies of Human Torch and Marrow. Anyway, they get owned.
http://img264.imageshack.us/my.php?image=a1kg3.jpg
http://img444.imageshack.us/my.php?image=a2nj9.jpg
http://img403.imageshack.us/my.php?image=a3fx8.jpg

Vs. The X-Men. In this scan, Rogue tries to absorb his power. Instead, she gets a taste of 106 personalities inside of DH and goes into shock.
http://img403.imageshack.us/my.php?image=a5ol1.jpg
http://img19.imageshack.us/my.php?image=a6uk9.jpg

Issue #2

This is both a good and bad feat. He’s fighting 616 Wolverine. Bad: Logan cuts his hand-weapon clean off. Good: he regrows it completely in about 4 panels. Keep in mind, his arm is made of a different substance than his body (liquid molybdenum) so it’s doubtful he could replicate this feat for his entire body.
http://img264.imageshack.us/my.php?image=b1xo9.jpg
http://img183.imageshack.us/my.php?image=b2pi2.jpg

He’s basically immune to telepathy because of having 106 personalities within him. Here he shrugs off a psi-spike in the brain from Psylocke, saying toothpicks would hurt more.
http://img341.imageshack.us/my.php?image=b3zd5.jpg

Issue #3

DH’s arm can morph into a few different forms (laser cannon, cranial siphon, a blade configuration that is particularly sharp, etc.). Here he uses a variation off of the blade configuration and makes himself 2 blade-hands. It’s a total of about 8 claws on one hand. Cool stuff.
http://img366.imageshack.us/my.php?image=c1ns0.jpg

Issue #5
Issue #4 was only skipped due to lack of worthwhile feats and storyline.

Strength feat: Here he is fighting an ugly baddy, and punches him hard enough into a stone pillar the size of a large building, and knocks it down.

Fighting a duplicate of himself. Same physical specs, but less fighting skill. Knocks him clear through a building.

Issue #7

Just some fun. After seeing a weapons cache, he turns his arm-weapon into a battle axe. Also punks a Loch Ness Monster thing.

Issue #10

Skill feat: An Iron Man-type with some martial arts skill (I think his name is Switchblade….anyway, he’s not a no-name baddy at least). DH shows him the ropes in about 4 panels, then punts him about a mile.
http://img338.imageshack.us/my.php?image=j1sx0.jpg
http://img259.imageshack.us/my.php?image=j2ju9.jpg

Issue #14

Misc. Coolness. He actually shows that he has an enhanced sense of hearing. I’d describe it, but it’s just as good to see it (a few non-important pages are skipped, so the narration might seem wonky)
http://img413.imageshack.us/my.php?image=n1er3.jpg
http://img340.imageshack.us/my.php?image=n2ik3.jpg

Issue #15

A fight against robots of some obviously well-known heroes. Nothing spectacular, but DH fares well.

http://img340.imageshack.us/my.php?image=o2il9.jpg
http://img338.imageshack.us/my.php?image=o3xm6.jpg

Issue #16

This feat is particularly sweet. He’s fighting an alien from the future with very advanced tech. His armor blocks DH’s attacks completely, and gives him superior strength/speed. But after about 2 pages of dialogue between the two (couldn’t be more than a minute or two) Death’s Head’s systems had analyzed the armors specs entirely. He alters his attacking frequency and bypasses the shields.

So in a nutshell, anyone in armor without a damn good plan = screwed against DHII.
First matchup:

Death’s Head II continued…

Limited Series’ Appearances

Please note, many of these limited issue runs take place (chronologically) during DH’s solo series. However, rather than attempt to place them each (and fail) I figured it would be easier to have them after the solo series stuff.

Regardless, these special appearances are again in roughly chronological order. I’ll give back story as needed.

Battle Tide I

Backstory:
The Battle Tide is a sentient entity that travels the cosmos looking for worlds to wreck. It is the embodiment of hate and evil, and thrives on violence and chaos. Death’s Head gets embroiled in a conflict to stop the Battle Tide, partnered with a lovable loser named Killpower.

Killpower:
There’s a few feats I include of him, but basically he’s a child in a man’s body. And that body happens to be roughly Hercules-level (mortal Herc) in strength and durability. He also has a “conceptual” knowledge of technology. He inherently has knowledge of whatever tech he works with. Basically a plot device, but kinda funny.

Battle Tide #1

Minor skill feat. DH casually ruins some would-be assassin monks.
http://img72.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bt11pe1.jpg
http://img466.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bt12sr1.jpg

Before the next fight, a display of Killpower’s strength from Battle Tide #3. He stalemates mortal Herc in an arm-wrestling contest until they accidentally break the table.
http://img466.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bt31yx3.jpg
http://img72.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bt32pn0.jpg

A fight with Killpower, after teleporting directly to his location. DH gets the better of the fight and is poised to kill Killpower when they both get kidnapped.
http://img466.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bt13ed8.jpg
http://img72.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bt14dg3.jpg
http://img72.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bt15nf6.jpg
http://img466.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bt16pb0.jpg

BT #2

Minor speed feat: While shooting his blaster cannon, it’s drawn twice in the same panel as he whips it around to shoot multiple opponents.
http://img72.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bt21er8.jpg

Confirms that the teleportation tech is his own, and informs us that the Battle World tech collars are blocking his teleportation.
http://img466.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bt22hm9.jpg

Awesome speed feat. Stabs about 100 maggot-looking things in a single panel.
http://img72.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bt23ly4.jpg

The metal baddy that Killpower couldn’t take out, and who shrugged off a stone building falling on top of him, DH owns with his arm-blade.
http://img443.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bt24zj6.jpg
http://img466.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bt25hn0.jpg
http://img443.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bt26hj1.jpg

BT #4

Death’s Head decides to channel the Battle Tide into himself, an immense feat by any standard. I have no idea how good a feat this is, because Killpower hooked up some special tech to DH to help him…but it was apparently something none of the others could do.

The blast at the end destroys DH, but not so badly that Killpower can’t put him back together.
http://img466.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bt41sp3.jpg
http://img72.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bt42re7.jpg
http://img72.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bt43ck2.jpg


Death’s Head & Die Cut

Backstory:
Die Cut is a personality inside Death’s Head that DH has to release into his original body because he needs Die Cut’s help. They end up fighting because Die Cut hates him, but they have to work together to survive. Basically, the series was an excuse to introduce a new character to Marvel UK. But some decent feats.

DH & DC #1

Tuck blasts some grapefruit-sized holes in DH to kill a virus he had. He heals from the wounds in about 3 panels.
http://img466.imageshack.us/my.php?image=die1hh0.jpg
http://img128.imageshack.us/my.php?image=die2ny7.jpg

Mys-Tech Wars

Backstory:
Cool story, low on feats. DH and some company from 616 join together to take out Mys-Tech, a cosmic organization that messes with entire timelines, and wants to replace 616 Earth with one of their own choosing so that they can control it.

Feats:
Shrugging off bullet/laser wounds:
http://img259.imageshack.us/my.php?image=mys1zo6.jpg

This is an impressive feat for his blaster arm-configuration. The spread on it takes out about half a dozen people.
http://img262.imageshack.us/my.php?image=mys2kf2.jpg
http://img185.imageshack.us/my.php?image=mys3dy3.jpg


Dark Guard

Backstory: I don’t know much about Dark Guard to be honest. These scans come courtesy of King_Mungi.

Slicing open a heavily-armored super tank

http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/...rkGuard0208.jpg


Battle Tide II
I put Mys-Tech Wars between the two Battle Tide arcs to avoid confusion between them.

Backstory:
In the original Battle Tide (and the explosion at the end), one of DH’s personalities (Bezial) escapes and enters the Battle Tide. In this arc, he has taken control of Termegaira (the controlling host body of the Battle Tide) and the entire Tide.

Battle Tide II Issue #1

Death’s Head fighting in a facility that is –60 degrees Celsius, with no trouble. I did the math for us Americans: it’s –76 degrees Farenheit.
http://img440.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bttwo1rx3.jpg

Issue #2

Death’s Head II and Killpower vs. The Hulk. Killpower jobs like mad. DH does main duty for this. He loses the initial encounter (but gets some shots in). But he gets back from space a few pages later and stomps Hulk with only minimal help from Killpower.

http://img461.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bttwo72md5.jpg

Death’s Head Gold

Backstory: Chronologically, I think this is the most recent appearance of Death’s Head II (except for a cameo appearance in 1999’s “Avengers Forever”). It takes place some time after his solo series. At the beginning he is stranded on a planet with quite a bit of damage and a fading energy supply due to some tampering with his systems. Eventually, he gets re-powered, and begins to fight the leader of a world-destroying armada who has many duplicates of himself all linked via telepathy. It’s a semi-retcon of earlier DH material, as he finds out that many of his earlier villains are linked to this main bad guy’s schemes.

There was only one issue (it was long though…about 50 pages). The series, and DHII, was then cancelled.

Anyway, feats:

Just some determination and pain tolerance as he nears death (he is impaled on a spiky rock and claws his way off it).
http://img250.imageshack.us/my.php?image=gold1ov8.jpg

Displays his ability to share information with other technology. It’s a kind of “cyber-telepathy” skill (it’s also detailed in his A.I.M. bio at the beginning of this section).
http://img250.imageshack.us/my.php?image=gold2tq0.jpg
http://img250.imageshack.us/my.php?image=gold3zt9.jpg

Possibly his best strength feat ever! They had just crashed a spaceship into the bad guy’s mothership. DH then lifts the freaking ship and tosses it on some henchmen. Judging just by the sheer size of the thing, and it’s metal composition, this easily puts him in the 100-Ton range.
http://img250.imageshack.us/my.php?image=gold4yy9.jpg


The Incomplete Death’s Head

Backstory:
Same feat as the original Death’s Head.

The “Incomplete Death’s Head” series takes place years after the original DH has died. Death’s Head II (Minion) stumbles onto a data archives with the memories of the original DH and is going through it. Meanwhile another story is taking place that he (Minion) is oblivious to, putting his partner Tuck in danger.

Long story short, a time paradox (that would take way too long to explain) brings the original DH back for real in the final issue. Both Death’s Heads fight alongside one another against a mechanical beasty intent on DH’s death.

This was intended as a “sending off” party for the original Death’s Head, since his death came suddenly and left fans with very little closure for the character.

Misc.

A cool black & white picture of DHII and Punisher. There was a limited series slated with these two, but it never got published to my knowledge.
http://img115.imageshack.us/my.php?image=pic1ed5.jpg

And no respect thread for a character this cool would be complete without a Pimp Slap!

Death Wreck

Bio: http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix/deathwre.htm
Picture: http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix/deathwre1.jpg
Origin & Description: Death Wreck is, in short, a prototype for Death’s Head II (Minion). He was created shortly before Minion, though we don’t find that out until well into Minion’s run. He’s easily the least powerful of this bunch (the original DH included, by my estimation) but is the sort of lumbering dude that makes for humorous destruction.

I include him only for the sake of being thorough. He had a 4-issue solo series, but no real feats to speak of. Mostly failed attempts at humor and explosions. The lone fight is from the “Death3” story arc, where DHII, Death Wreck, and Death Metal all join together to kill Charnel.

Related Bios:
Earth 9939 (i.e. Earth Charnel) - http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix/earthcharnel.htm
This gets confusing, so my apologies…it’s important to note that this Earth “never existed”. When DHII defeated Charnel in 1992 (the fight is partially shown in the DHII section) it sent a “temporal distortion wave” that was sent forward to erase the timeline in which Charnel ruled. The events of the “Death3” story arc are from that timeline, but the time wave hasn’t caught up to it yet….Charnel is seeking to travel back and re-establish himself before he was defeated.

So, what does this mean?
1. The few scans I show of DW are in a universe that is subsequently erased from the timestream.
2. DW himself, however, is from the 2020 universe, and thus survives the time wave (along with the rest of the family).
3. The bio tries to explain it too. And there’s some bits on Charnel in the DHII section (and a few more in the next section on Death Metal). Between all of it, hopefully this makes sense. If not, meh.

Feats & Battles:

http://img259.imageshack.us/my.php?image=13dn5.jpg

I thought about including some stuff from his 4-issue solo run, but then I was like “nah.” There’s nothing that’s really feat-worthy.

Death Metal

Bio: http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix/deathmet.htm
Picture: http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix/deathmet1.jpg
Origin & Description: Death Metal was created after DHII. So, to put it chronologically as far as “birth date” it goes: DHI, Death Wreck, DHII, Death Metal, Death’s Head 3.0

Dr. Evelyn Necker, experimenting again after failing to keep DHII in check, time traveled to Earth 9939 (Earth Charnel). She encountered some android warriors made from “living promethium”, the same enchanted metal that Charnel himself used as part of his natural armor. She took one, brought it back to 2020, and created Death Metal out of it. Death Metal remained loyal to Charnel until a Penance Stare from the Ghost Rider of Earth 9939 turned him good, after which he fought between his guilt over his sins and his inherently destructive programming.

Death Metal is clearly more powerful than his predecessors. Only Death’s Head 3.0 may rival him.

Death Metal Feats & Battles:

Death Metal vs. Ghost Rider. He doesn’t actually kill GR during this fight, but he clearly wins, and it takes GR quite a while to reform and return.

http://img259.imageshack.us/my.php?image=28vg2.jpg

The rematch. GR uses his Penance Stare and makes DM feel remorse for all of his sins. DM is an entirely metal being, but because of its mystical nature, it’s said to be sentient. So I’m not sure if this is a “Penance Stare works on machines” feat for GR or not.
http://img126.imageshack.us/my.php?image=32ah6.jpg

One-shots Earth 9939’s Hulk. This happened before the Penance Stare made him “good”.

Establishing his physical superiority over Death’s Head II
http://img126.imageshack.us/my.php?image=31zs8.jpg

This is all 3 cyborgs (Death Wreck, Death’s Head, Death Metal) vs. Charnel. The fact that they all survive the explosion is, I suppose a durability feat, but most of the “killing Charnel” credit goes to Death Metal…as DHII tells us in the last page or so.

This is a sweet scan that shows us just how much Death Metal can do simultaneously. He is frying one alien-thing with some sort of energy vision, stabbing another, choking another, and has two laser cannons growing out of his shoulders. All at the same time.
http://img403.imageshack.us/my.php?image=41mr9.jpg

I have no idea who this guy is (he’s got a glowing sword and some sort of tech-armor), but it’s a cool fight and Death Metal punks him. He displays his energy vision again and his ability to heal (which is almost without limit, as we’ll see later).
http://img178.imageshack.us/my.php?image=42ro5.jpg

http://img178.imageshack.us/my.php?image=46po4.jpg
http://img158.imageshack.us/my.php?image=47me9.jpg

Backstory:
The following is an extended fight with Alpha Flight. It’s important to note that, because of the Penance Stare, DM feels sorry for his sins. He wants to die, and tries to hold back so that Alpha Flight can destroy him. But despite this, he still wins handily.

The fight is actually from 2 different comics. The part vs. Box is from another comic, but it’s the same fight. When put together, it’s one seamless battle.

In this fight he displays a considerable amount of raw power (strength, energy, etc.) healing, and the fight with Box shows that any amount of metal manip. isn’t really enough to kill him unless he is disintegrated or somesuch. The mystical nature of his body protects him.

In this battle, he fights (and gets the better of) Sasquatch, Box, Puck, Guardian II, Aurora, and a couple others I didn’t identify. The only way they win is by tricking him into remembering his sins (since he had entered bloodlust mode, forgetting the Penance Stare). Once or twice I cropped the pages to take out DM’s inner monologue and just show the battle.

Death’s Head 3.0

Bio: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death'...th.27s_Head_3.0
…sorry, couldn’t find a bio besides wiki.
Picture: http://www.fpigraphics.co.uk/acatalog/product_G9227.jpg
Origin & Description: Death’s Head 3.0 is still within the 2020 universe, but it is (presumably) some years after his predecessors. The A.I.M. corporation still creates him, but it isn’t Dr. Necker this time, nor are there any other familiar faces.

DH3.0 is an advanced mechanoid body powered by a replica of the Uni-Power. Yeah, that’s right. The Uni-Power. AIM studied the Uni-Power and gathered specs on it (more on this later, since it ties in with the 616 universe some) and created a replica of it. The replica created by AIM isn’t as powerful as the original, but it’s more than enough to provide an insanely impressive power source for the body.

The character revolves around the “imprisonment” of the inherently good Uni-Power, and its attempts to override its destructive and vindictive “body”. We don’t have a definite power level for it, but from what I’ve seen it’s probably the most powerful of the bunch except perhaps for Death Metal.

So far, he’s only had a 6-issue run in Amazing Fantasy. But there are plans for more (see attached interview with Simon Furman in the next post).

His power level is undetermined. He hasn’t displayed a ton of versatility beyond being really, really durable and strong. But his durability alone is greater than any other character here (though we’re not sure about healing) and until we see more of him it will be hard to get a full account of his limits.

Death’s Head 3.0 Feats & Battles:


Cpt. Universe Limited Series Issue #3

Backstory:
This is from the limited (5 issue?) run on the Uni-Power recently. In it, the Uni-Power is not functioning properly, and enlists the aid of Hulk, Daredevil, X-23, Sue Richards, Gladiator, and Silver Surfer to figure the situation out and return to normal.

I include this briefly because I believe that it’s the link between the A.I.M. corporation, the Uni-Power, and Death’s Head 3.0. The scan I post is simply X-23 destroying a computer that was uploading information gathered on the Uni-Power. We learn later that it’s the AIM corporation that was uploading this information. Apparently, X-23 ends the threat, but not before it gains some information.

Add this to the fact that AIM created a rough duplicate of the Uni-Power to act as a power source for DH3.0 and I think you see the connection.

Where it gets tricky is realizing that this takes place in 616, but (presumably) DH3.0 is in the 2020 universe. But AIM time travels like Wolverine says “Bub” so it’s not really without a plausible explanation.
http://img111.imageshack.us/my.php?image=uni1xj0.jpg


Amazing Fantasy Run

This is when he is first allowed to leave the A.I.M. facility. He trashes a bunch of no-name guards, displays some glowy-hands (that later manifest as some close-range energy projection) and uses a built-in grappling hook to “escape” (not escape in a traditional sense…he just didn’t want to hurt anyone).

…the last scan includes an email that links DH3.0 with the “Minion Project” (DHII). Further evidence that this takes place in the 2020 universe.


Again taking bullets and laser fire like they’re raindrops (which puts his base durability > Death’s Head and even Death Metal, though we don’t know the extent of his healing, which is the main reason DM’s so hard to kill)

Raiding a high-tech prison facility. The last scan is particularly impressive, because he stops a gargantuan tank-truck going full speed simply by leaning into it. It crushes itself on DH3, and he then picks it up effortlessly with one hand and smashes it into some other tanks.

Ignores explosions from missiles from a giant bazooka at point-blank range, then retaliates with his gigantic gun-thing.

While engaging some tanks and soldiers, DH3 has an inner monologue that chronicles his creation and confusion over his current position.

Misc. Information

A rough timeline of Death’s Head comics:
http://www.maelmill-insi.de/UHBMCC/DEATHHEA.HTM

An interview with Simon Furman (writer of the vast majority of DH material) on bringing back DH with 3.0 in 2005, and his future writing engagements:
http://www.comixfan.com/xfan/forums...ead.php?t=37077

An interview with (I think) one of the editors of Amazing Fantasy about DH3.0:
http://forum.newsarama.com/showthre...?threadid=50003

….

Chronology Tree (earliest to most recent):
Death’s Head I
Death Wreck
Death’s Head II
Death Metal
Death’s Head 3.0
…this is “in-continuity birth date”, rather than appearance date, since DHII’s first comic appearance predates Death Wreck in the real world. But Death Wreck was created prior to DHII in the comics.

Power Levels (weakest to most powerful):
Death Wreck
Death’s Head I
Death’s Head II
Death Metal
…by feats alone, Death Metal has it easily, and even DHII has more impressive feats than DH 3.0. But depending on the % of the Uni-Power’s total power that 3.0 has harnessed within him, he may have more potential than any of them.

Bonus Fight

This is a fun battle from a “What If?” comic (What If…? # 54). In this scenario, the original Death’s Head lives and Minion ends up becoming Charnel. The fight is between the two. And considering how powerful Minion is to begin with, and also how powerful Charnel is, it’s a great feat for Death’s Head (though not in continuity).

He only wins via plot device (Minion had assimilated 616 Reed Richards, and DH uses that to his advantage) but it’s still an amusing fight.

Good respect thread, yes?

I actually think I have every (or nearly every) appearance of all of these people. I did my homework and spent a few months amassing everything so I’d be sure I wasn’t leaving anything out. There’s 1 or 2 issues here and there I couldn’t get my hands on, but in general this should be a fully comprehensive thread on everything having to do with the Death’s Head family tree.

Great respect, by the way where did you find the Doctor comics? I've been wanting to do a respect thread for him for a long time.

You mean the time-and-dimension-hopping Doctor that shrinks Death's Head I down to size after his origin in Transformers?

IIRC, those scans are from "The Incomplete Death's Head" Issue #1, when it retells much of DH's story (even copying whole pages from his original series). I had never heard of The Doctor until I saw him there, and I honestly don't know where he and Death's Head had a history together (unless DH is just pissed that he brought him there). It's been a while since I read it, so I'd have to look it up from my collection to confirm the details. The whole explanation is a bit screwy, and I never wrapped my head fully around it, especially the weird meta-story taking place with Death's Head II at the same time as he watches the videos of DHI's history.

But I bought it as part of a collection on Ebay. If you're interested I can dig it up and send you along anything of note.

I was just completely surprised because I had no idea there was any crossover between The Doctor from Doctor Who and Marvel.
