A to Z Challenge – SUPER cross stitch

Y is for Yellowjacket

Yellowjacket is from weelittlestitches’ superhero alphabet sampler.

The moniker of Yellowjacket is used by several characters in the Marvel universe.

Dr. Henry “Hank” Pym is the first to take on the codename Yellowjacket, and he’s also been known as Ant-Man, Giant-Man, and Goliath.

Rita DeMara is the second Yellowjacket, debuting as a supervillain and later becoming a superhero.

Recently, Yellowjacket was introduced in the Marvel cinematic universe with this iteration of the moniker being the film’s antagonist, Darren Cross, a protege of Hank Pym.

I will admit that my only real exposure to Yellowjacket is the recent Marvel movie Ant-Man, which I loved! It was interesting to learn that it was a title that has been used by several characters – superheroes and supervillains alike.

Yellowjacket made his animated debut in The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes when Hank Pym suffers from a personality disorder and turns into a new vigilante.

 

Y is for Yuriko/Lady Deathstrike

Yuriko/Lady Deathstrike is from fangirl stitches’ girl power superhero comic book alphabet.

Lady Deathstrike is a supervillain in the Marvel universe – a foe of the X-Men, especially Wolverine.

I remember seeing her on the small screen of my living room as a kid, thinking that she was evil for sure, but such a badass!

She was transformed into a cyborg by Spiral and the “Body Shop” using alien technology of Mojo’s dimension. She has superhuman strength, speed, stamina, durability, and agility.

Deathstrike’s skeleton has been artificially laced with molecules of adamantium, rendering her skeletal structure practically unbreakable. Her fingers have been replaced by five 12-inch long adamantium claws replacing each finger of each hand.

She’s got Freddy Krueger beat hands down when it comes to having knives for fingers!

Lady Deathstrike appears in the two-part episode “Out of the Past” of the X-Men animated series.

Deathstrike makes an appearance as an antagonist in the “Hulk vs. Wolverine” segment of the animated film Hulk Versus.
