Petra is a fictional character appearing in the comic books published by Marvel Comics. Petra first appears in the limited series X-Men: Deadly Genesis #1 (2006), and was created by writer Ed Brubaker and artist Pete Woods. She is one of the "Missing X-Men". The word "petra" means "rocky" in Latin, and "stone" in Greek.
Petra was the first of her family to be born in the United States. Her mother, father and brother emigrated from Denmark while her mother was pregnant with Petra. They lived the typical American life in the suburbs of New York City for most of Petra's childhood. Shortly after her thirteenth birthday, Petra's family was killed by a rockslide while on a camping trip. Unknowingly, Petra used her mutant powers of earth manipulation to avoid getting hurt.
After spending weeks in Child Protective Services, Petra was sent to live in New Jersey in a foster home. She was placed in a home that had five other children that were forced to share the same bedroom. Her foster mother was old and uncaring, and her foster father was too caring, trying to hold and touch Petra all the time. One day on an outing to Central Park, Petra's foster father tried to touch her but sank knee-deep into the ground. It was then that Petra realized that she was a mutant, and she ran away. She found a cave and hid there for days crying, knowing that with her abilities she could have either killed or saved her family.
She camped in Central Park for a couple years, using her power to manipulate rock caves into shelters to avoid being arrested and sent to juvenile detention centers. When she was sixteen, she discovered another useful aspect of her ability: she could turn coal into diamonds by concentrating hard enough. For a year, she used this aspect of her power to make diamonds of varying size to sell to pawn shops so she could buy food and survive.
One day, however, a pawn shop employee said he was going to call the owner of the store, but he really called the police. Running to her rock shelter, the police found Petra before she could hide, and took her into custody after a brief battle. When she awoke, a female guard informed her that she was being released into the custody of a woman, later revealed to be Dr. Moira MacTaggert, who was there to help Petra. This at first frightened Petra because she had never known anyone to try to help her because of her abilities, only hurt her.
After some time with Dr. MacTaggert, Professor Charles Xavier took Petra and the other children within custody (Sway, Darwin and Vulcan) to rescue the original X-Men team trapped on the mutant island Krakoa.[volume & issue needed] Petra instinctively used her powers to bury Vulcan and Darwin, and then gets incinerated by the volcano creature that was created by Krakoa.
When the X-Men establish Krakoa as a mutant paradise, Petra was among the revived mutants living there, She, Sway, and Vulcan were residing in the Summer House.
Petra was a "terrakinetic" or "geo-morph", having the ability to psychokinetically manipulate, control, levitate and reshape the classic element of earth—sand, stone, rock, lava, and/or dirt—and could even transform the consistency of earth and rock, such as turning a lump of coal into a diamond. She also could use this power to cause minor earthquakes and create shapes out of solid rock.
Petra in other media
A character with both Petra's striking resemblance and powers appears in the Wolverine and the X-Men animated series: Christy Nord (voiced by Kari Wahlgren). This iteration is the daughter of kinetic energy absorbing mutant Christopher Nord. Like Petra, she has the mutant ability to manipulate the earth and stone. In the episode "Past Discretions", she was seen in flashbacks living with Christopher on a farm near the Canadian border at the age of 6, when her father became Team X's target. Wolverine was sent to capture Nord, only to realize this could make Christy an orphan. Ten years later, Wolverine reappears to which Christy attacks him for apparently being responsible for her being an orphan. However, Christy realizes that Wolverine had saved her and Sabretooth was responsible for her father's apparent demise. In the episode "Stolen Lives", Christy gets abducted by Maverick for Dr. Abraham Cornelius and Professor Thorton, however, she is rescued by Wolverine and Mystique. With Emma Frost's help, Christy reunites with her father.
Phage is the name used by a symbiote in Marvel Comics. The symbiote, created by David Michelinie and Ron Lim, first appeared in Venom: Lethal Protector #4 (May 1993), and was named in Carnage, U.S.A. #2 (March 2012) after an unrelated character from the Venom: The Hunted comic storyline and Venom: Along Came A Spider toyline. The Phage symbiote is one of five symbiote "children" forcefully spawned from the Venom symbiote alongside four other symbiotes: Agony, Riot, Lasher and Scream.
Phage's first host was Carl Mach, a mercenary hired by Carlton Drake's Life Foundation in San Francisco. Carl bonded with the Phage symbiote in conjunction to Scream (Donna Diego), Agony (Leslie Gesneria), Lasher (Ramon Hernandez) and Riot (Trevor Cole). Phage and his four symbiote "siblings" are defeated by Spider-Man and Venom. The symbiotes "siblings" later kidnap Eddie Brock out of prison in an attempt to communicate with their alien symbiotes in Chicago. When Eddie refused to aid, Carl was killed with a sonic knife after Leslie; the others were initially mislead into thinking Brock was picking the group off but Scream, having snapped from Donna's schizophrenia and the Scream symbiote's influence, was the killer.
Phage's second host was Rico Axelson, a Lieutenant assigned the Phage symbiote within the Mercury Team special force. When Carnage is loose in Colorado, Rico trained with the Phage symbiote for months for specific tasks alongside Riot (Howard Odgen), Lasher (Marcus Simms) and Agony (James Murphy). Rico and his teammates are eventually killed by Carnage in their secret base. The four symbiotes bond to Deadpool to fight Carnage, and then bond with Mercury Team's dog (the sole survivor of Carnage's attack against the taskforce).
During the "Absolute Carnage" storyline, the symbiote-infected dog comes across a family who keep fighting. After the dog is invited inside their house, the boy Billy is there when the Knull-possessed symbiotes erupt as the Agony and Riot symbiotes take over Sadie's parents. Horrified, the kids try to escape but the Phage symbiote bonds to Billy and the Lasher symbiote later bonds with Sadie. The family then decide to go to New York and help Carnage's quest.

To Jessica's surprise, Malcolm shows up with a girl named Laney, who claims that her brother was dating Mattie around the time she disappeared. He is last seen answering Jessica's phone, this time as her secretary.

- Malcolm Joseph Ducasse is a major character on Jessica Jones, portrayed by Eka Darville. He is a neighbor who lives just down the hall from Jessica's apartment. Jessica first meets him when she saves him from two muggers, a meeting she does not recall because that was also the night that Kilgrave first brought her under his control. It is later revealed that Malcolm was planning on getting into social work, but after Jessica escaped from Kilgrave's control, Kilgrave tracked Malcolm down and ordered him to get addicted to drugs, and made him secretly take pictures of Jessica. When Jessica finds out, she leaves Malcolm handcuffed in her bathroom and forces him to go into withdrawal. He soon becomes the leader of a support group for Kilgrave's victims, helps Robyn get closure after Kilgrave kills her brother, stays by Luke's bedside while he's recovering from a concussion, and after Kilgrave is defeated, begins to work for Jessica as her secretary.
- Malcolm is a recurring character in The Defenders. He is introduced popping in to Jessica's apartment while she is invested in a missing persons case, much to Jessica's annoyance, and offers a helpful tip that allows Jessica to track down her mysterious caller's location. Later on, John Raymond, learning that Jessica is trying to find him, forces his way into Jessica's apartment and holds Malcolm at gunpoint. Malcolm and Jessica try to talk Raymond into going to the police, but Elektra breaks into the apartment and tries to kill Raymond, who shoots himself rather than let her kill him. Elektra flees the scene while Jessica and Malcolm are arrested by Detective Misty Knight. Misty attempts to interrogate the two for information, but Matt Murdock shows up to bail them out of custody. Later on, when the Hand begin targeting the heroes' loved ones, Jessica has Trish and Malcolm hide with Colleen Wing, Claire Temple, Karen Page and Foggy Nelson at Misty's precinct. After the Hand is defeated, Malcolm is last seen helping Jessica fix up her apartment and painting over the bullet holes left from Jessica and Trish's fight with Simpson.
- In the second season of Jessica Jones, Malcolm continues to be an associate to Jessica and is constantly taking notes of advice from her, regardless of whether they are intentional or not. Jessica uses him to track down leads on IGH as well as settle a tenancy dispute with their new building superintendent Oscar Arocho. When Jessica and Trish find an IGH nurse named Inez Green, they task Malcolm with delivering Inez to Jeri Hogarth. In the midst of the IGH investigation, Malcolm also helps Jeri uncover dirt on her partners who are tried to get her fired. Malcolm later hooks up with Trish and begins a sexual relationship with her, though this ends when Trish, seeking to get powers like Jessica from Dr. Karl Malus, knocks out, ties up and stuffs Malcolm in the trunk of her car when he tries to bring Dr. Malus in. Then finally, she kidnaps Dr. Malus and threatens to shoot Malcolm if he tries to stop her. Fed up with Trish and Jessica using him, Malcolm quits and goes to work for rival private investigator Pryce Cheng, who in turn has been retained by Hogarth's new private law firm.
The character, created by Jim Valentino, first appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy #15 (August 1991) as the childlike ruler of the Universal Church of Truth of the alternate future of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Valentino modeled him after his son Aaron at seven years old. He is depicted as a superhuman of unlimited potential, with the ability to duplicate not only super-powers, but also the skills of others simply by observing the ability being used; thus, he could acquire the psychokinetic powers of the Guardian Vance Astro as easily as he could the marksmanship ability of Astro's teammate Nikki, by watching them in combat.
Within the context of the Marvel Comics universe, Protégé is the deity and leader of Universal Church of Truth to which Replica, a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy, belongs. In order to save the lives of her teammates, she offers herself as a playmate to Protégé who is accompanied by Malevolence.
Later, Protégé uses its abilities to duplicate the powers of the Living Tribunal, nearly usurping its place in Marvel's cosmology. When attempts to defeat Protégé fail, The Living Tribunal states that any and all realities rest on Protégé's shoulders. Protégé itself claims to have become the new One-Above-All. Scathan the Approver, a Celestial, saves all realities by judging against Protégé. The Living Tribunal then absorbed Protégé into itself to prevent him from endangering all realities again.

|First appearance||X-Men #107 (Oct. 1977)|
|Created by||Chris Claremont and Dave Cockrum|
|Species||Unidentified extraterrestrial race|
Pulsar, originally code-named Impulse, is a member of the Shi'ar Imperial Guard. Created by Chris Claremont and Dave Cockrum, the character first appeared in X-Men #107 (Oct. 1977). An energy being in a containment suit, Pulsar is capable of flight and the projection of energy blasts. (Like many original members of the Imperial Guard, Pulsar is the analog of a character from DC Comics' Legion of Super-Heroes: in his case Wildfire.)
Impulse was amongst the first of the Imperial Guard encountered by the team of superhuman mutants known as the X-Men who sought to rescue the Princess Lilandra from her insane brother emperor D'Ken. Following the orders of their emperor, the Guard clashed with the X-Men on a nameless Shi'ar Empire planet, and were on the verge of winning when the band of interstellar freebooters known as the Starjammers arrived to turn the tide of battle in the X-Men's favor. After the battle, Lilandra takes over as Majestrix, and the Guard swears allegiance to her.
He is with the Guard when they come into conflict with a rogue Space Knight named Pulsar and an alien named Tyreseus. After a large battle which also involves Rom and other Space Knights — which leads to the deaths of four new Guardsman — Pulsar and Tyreseus are defeated.
Impulse is again part of the mission during Operation: Galactic Storm, an intergalactic war between the Shi'ar and the Kree. The Imperial Guard are integral to the Sh'iar creating a massive super weapon — the "Nega-Bomb" — using Kree artifacts, including the original Captain Marvel's Nega-Bands, which the Guard steals from the dead hero's tomb. This bomb is capable of devastating an area equivalent to that of the Kree Empire (which is supposedly located throughout the Large Magellanic Cloud). Ultimately, the Nega Bomb device is successfully detonated, devastating the Kree Empire, with billions dying instantaneously (98% of the Kree population). The Shi'ar annex the remnants of the Kree Empire, with Deathbird becoming viceroy of the Kree territories.
Ronan the Accuser subsequently leads the Kree in a surprise attack against the Shi'ar, using the Inhumans as an army to disrupt the Shi'ar control of the Kree. Appearing over the city of Attilan, Ronan seizes control in a surprise attack and forces the Inhumans and their king, Black Bolt, to obey, or he would destroy their only home and everyone in it. He compels Karnak, Gorgon, and Triton to covertly join the Imperial Guard, while Black Bolt and Medusa attempt the assassination of the Shi'ar ruler Lilandra at a ceremony ratifying an alliance between the Shi'ar and the Spartoi. Black Bolt manages to defeat Ronan in personal combat; the attempt on Lilandra's life fails because the shapeshifting Imperial Guardsman Hobgoblin dies in her place.
The character is seemingly killed by Vulcan in the Emperor Vulcan storyline. Vulcan, a powerful mutant intent on conquering the Shi'ar Empire, fights the Guard, killing Cosmo and Smasher (and seemingly Impulse, Neutron, and Titan) before he is defeated by Gladiator, who puts out his left eye. It turns out that Impulse either survived Vulcan's attack or was replaced by someone from the Subguardian ranks, because he reappears in the War of Kings storyline. Beginning with the Infinity crossover, the character's name was changed to Pulsar.
