I know three outta four.  Anyone know the one on the right, in white?  I don't believe I know who that is.

That's Photon, or sometimes goes by Pulsar I guess... She used to be Captain Marvel a number of years ago (like during Secret Wars).  I Wasn't really aware that she was still around until just now.

Wait, SHE was Captain Marvel at some point?  Women can be Captain Marvel?  Are you sure you didn't mean Ms. Marvel?  I could be wrong cause I don't know much, but I'm just saying. lol

I have always been a fan of Wolverine, Gambit, Superman, and Captain America.

Yep, back in the 80s when she debuted in Amazing Spider-man she had been known as Captain Marvel, and the name stuck for some time... until (at least) the end of the Secret Wars events... after that I kinda lost track of her.  But yes she was A captain marvel... not to be confused with the normal line of Captain Marvels.  It's kinda like how you end up with a few people sharing names that have nothing to do with one another.

Wow that's pretty cool.  It kinda sucks now that I really haven't read one comic in my life.  I guess it's not too late since I'm 17, but still.

Oh and I've noticed quite a lot of similar names in the comics so they confuse me quite a bit.  Like in DC when there is suppose to be a kid version of a hero (like maybe a relative and whatnot) and then I would discover that the kid and the older hero both have the same names... but look different and are described differently.  Very confusing, at least to me.

What were these Secret Wars though?

Gambit's the magician right?  Sorta like Zatanna for Marvel... and a guy?

Secret Wars was originally a 12 issue limited series back in the 80s.  it places a bunch of heroes and villains on a far off patchwork planet and had them fight against one another all for the amusement of one known as The Beyonder.  Winner gets whatever wish they desire... but comics being comics... it didn't go down like that and almost all became subject to the will of Dr. Doom... then a couple of years later they had a follow-up aptly named Secret Wars II, which had the Beyonder come to Earth and learn about being mortal... which didn't go that well.

Gambit is a marvel character who has the ability to charge items with kinetic energy and causes things to explode.  He also served as the Horsemen of Death a few years back.  He was initially a "villain" and member of the new Orleans Thieves Guild.  Currently a member of the X-Men (sometimes he goes off and does his own thing for long stretches of time).

I like Bat Man when he is depicted as brutal . The story line on some sections of the series isn't to shabby either.
