Subj: I suppose that's why Ralph Macchio & George Perez tried to make Iron Maiden her archfoe ...Posted: Tue Mar 27, 2018 at 01:35:40 pm EDT (Viewed 304 times)

Quote:Then, there is Viper (potentially, the perfect Reverse Black Widow) who once tortured Black Widow to the point that she lost her memory. She could be an interesting archfoe for Black Widow but, unfortunately, after the Bronze Age Marvel Team-Up #82-85 storyline, she hasn't fought Black Widow anymore on a regular basis (yet, they did saw each other again in Secret Empire #5).
(actually, after that, Viper nearly became the archfoe of the other classic Spider-Woman, Jessica Drew, when it was believed that Viper could have been her biological mother http://www.supermegamonkey.net/chronocomic/entries/spider-woman_44.shtml)
Quote:Then, there is Alexei Shostakov, the (not so) late husband, who apparently died as a hero only to come back later as a villain while using the Ronin identity as his new alias. Honestly, I don't think that he is interesting as a villain. :-I
Quote:Then, there is the case of Damon Dran, the indestructible man, who could have been an interesting villain but, actually, is very lame. Chaos killed him and, thankfully, we got rid of him.
Quote:Then, there is the Prophet of the Chaos organization, which could have been a fun concept (Chaos is such a generic name, couldn't they have imagined something more original ?) but everybody has already forgotten them, anyway.
Basically, Iron Maiden is a second rate Madame Masque with an iron armor.
Also, her name rhymes with Iron Curtain and is a nod to the 1965 Tower comics villain, the rock band and the Middle Age torture device.
