Powers/Abilities: Curzon was a competant investigator, but also a hopeless drunk, chain-smoker and womanizer.

History: (Thor I#492 (fb) - BTS) - Curzon was a chain-smoking alcohol-abusing detective inspector sent to America on detachment to Code: Blue, a situation he was not at all pleased with, but necessary in order to obtain a promotion he coveted.

(Thor I#492) - Curzon was assigned by Captain Conklin to exmaine the head of a lackey of Price's which had been slain by Thor, and was sent dozens of statements by people who had been having prophetic dreams about Yggdrasil, the Asgardian world-tree. Curzon joined Lt. Stone in examining the bodies of Price's lackeys, and began to discern Thor's involvement in all of it.

(Thor I#493) - After Code: Blue's forensic team determined that Thor had slain the lackeys, Curzon delved into Asgardian lore, by reading the legends of Norse mythology, and books on Thor written from a human perspective. He began to have a picture of what Asgard was about, but his sources were in conflict. Nevertheless, Curzon correctly surmised that Thor's sudden disappearance coupled with the bodies of Price's lackeys meant someone was killing Thor with Yggdrasil.

(Thor I#494) - Having decided that Thor was dead, Curzon had Code: Blue build a device for him which could track energies from Mjolnir, hoping it would lead him to Thor's body. Although he was on the right trail, and came close to meeting Thor, he ran into the Enchantress first-- and she cremated him with a flash of energy.

Comments: Created by Warren Ellis and Mike Deodata Jr.

Curzon's story-arc seems rather pointless once you get to the end. He seemed to exist only to provide exposition (as well as the trademark Ellis "Smoking British Guy" character).

Curzon's first name was revealed in Marvel Atlas#1.
