History:

(Giant-Sized Bat-Thing#3) - Gold Kidney-Lady put a mental block on Lobo the Duck.

(Giant-Sized Bat-Thing#6) - Lobo the Duck professed his love to Bevarlene, swore that he would always be true, and said that he wanted Bevarlene to have his ducklings.

(Lobo the Duck Magazine#35) - Lobo the Duck imprisoned Doctor Bongface in a spanglite cage on the moon.

(Giant-Sized Bat-Thing#69) - The Offending Society hired Lobo the Duck to help them in their battle against a mystery villain who was destroying the world city by city. But after the heroes defeated the alliance of the Green Skull and Thanoseid, they discovered that the villains were merely pawns in the plot. Lobo and the Offending Society hurried back to their Manhattan headquarters to only to be consumed by a monstrous fireball of unknown origin.

(Lobo the Duck#1) - Manhattan stood in ruins in the aftermath of the monstrous fireball. Super-Soldier, Wonder Woman, Dark Claw, Spider-Boy, Mariner, Speed Demon, Dr. Strangefate, Skulk, Vikki Valkyrie, and Hawkhawk were apparently among the casualties. Lobo the Duck and Impossible Dawg were the only survivors in the near vicinity. Although Lobo was not sad to see the heroes die, they did pay him up front so he decided to finish the job and track down the mystery villain. But before getting to work on saving the world, Lobo decided to stop in Al Forbush's Subterranean Diner for a beer. While at Al's, Lobo got into an altercation with rival bounty hunter Ambush the Lunatik. Meanwhile, at Hi-Tek Gravity Labs of New York City, armed henchmen stole the Gravitoninoutometer ("Gravity Machine").

Back at Al's Subterranean Diner, Lobo got into a argument with Bevarlene (who booted him out of the diner after catching him with other women) and later ran into Jonas Turnip, Gamorola, and Billie the Millie in the ruins of Manhattan. But just as Jonas Turnip was about to reveal the identity of the mystery villain responsible for Manhattan's destruction, he was viciously attacked by Daryl Rutabaga. Nonetheless, Lobo finally broke the amnesia block placed on him and remembered the identity of the mystery villain -- Gold Kidney-Lady! Lobo hopped on his bike and crashed a ceremony of Gold Kidney-Lady and her congregation of Kidnoids being held at a stadium. Lobo filled Gold Kidney-Lady full of bullets, but her body fell backwards onto the lever that activated the Gravitoninoutometer, instantly creating a negative force field around the entire stadium and causing the moon to careen toward the Earth!

(Lobo the Duck#2) - "Don't Tell Mom the Bounty Hunter's Dead!" - It's up to Lobo the Duck and the Godthing to save the Earth from total murkish oblivion.


Comments: created by Alan Grant, Val Semeiks, Ray Kryssing, and Peter Tomasi

LOBO THE DUCK#1 clearly took place (at least partially) outside the main Amalgam Universe timestream, as is evident by the large number of established characters shown to be dead (i.e. Super-Soldier, Wonder Woman, Dark Claw, Spider-Boy, Mariner, Speed Demon, Dr. Strangefate, Skulk). It is also possible that LOBO THE DUCK#1 was the mainstream Amalgam Universe, and that at the end of his adventure he caused the events to be undone.

 Al Forbush

Al Forbush is the owner of Al Forbush's Subterranean Diner, a local Manhattan eating establishment frequented by Lobo the Duck. Al Forbush's diner used to be located above ground, but after the sixth time Lobo the Duck destroyed his premises, Al figured that he had better wise up and move his diner into an underground structure that resembled a bomb shelter. Luckily for Al, his decision to move underground saved his diner from the mysterious fireball that obliterated half of Manhattan.

Ambush the Lunatik

 

Ambush the Lunatik is a fellow bounty hunter who was hired to find the same unknown villain that the Offending Society hired Lobo the Duck to find. After confronting Lobo in Al Forbush's Subterranean Diner and warning Lobo not to get in his way, Ambush the Lunatik succeeded in getting Lobo angry. Lobo proceeded to "mollificate" Ambush the Lunatik until he was dazed, stomp him until he was tender, and then added a splotch of ketchup before consuming his rival bounty hunter

Ambush the Lunatik is an amalgam of Lunatik (the intergalactic merc, @ Marvel Comics Presents#172--not the fragment of Arisen Tyrk, @ Defenders I#51) of the Marvel Universe and Ambush Bug (Irwin Schwab) of the DC Universe.

 

 


Bevarlene

Bevarlene is Lobo the Duck's girlfriend. Although Lobo professed his love for Bevarlene and swore to her that he would always be true in GIANT-SIZED BAT-THING#6, he nonetheless continued to constantly philander with other women -- causing Bevarlene to get understandably upset. But no matter how mad she gets, Bevarlene always comes sobbing back to the Main Duck willing to forgive him.

Bevarlene is an amalgam of Beverly Switzler of the Marvel Universe and Darlene of the DC Universe.

 

 


 Billie the Millie

 

Billie the Millie is a bounty hunter who often accompanies fellow bounty hunters Jonas Turnip and Gamorola. Along with Jonas Turnip and Gamorola, she was captured and creamed by Doctor Bongface when he had control of the Crystal Rod of Doom in THE SAVAGE SWORD OF LOBO THE DUCK #52-55. Fortunately for Billie, the trio escaped Doctor Bongface's clutches with the help of a demi-god in BONGHUNTER'S SPECIAL#1. In LOBO THE DUCK#1, Billie the Millie's romantic advances on Lobo the Duck caused considerable tension in the relationship between Lobo and Bevarlene.

 Daryl Rutabaga

 

The estranged brother of Jonas Turnip, Daryl Rutabaga was once betrayed to the law by his bounty hunting brother. Once free, Daryl planted a bug on his brother when Jonas' spacecraft was laid up in the Nether-Place in THE UNSETTLING LOBO THE DUCK#1. Daryl Rutabaga monitored Jonas' every move since then, waiting for the day that his brother would return to meet his death at Daryl's hands. Daryl finally got his opportunity for revenge in LOBO THE DUCK#1, when he shot Jonas through the jaw with his crossbow and proceeded to pummel him.

Later, in LOBO THE DUCK MAGAZINE#35, Lobo imprisoned Doctor Bongface in a spanglite cage on the moon. In LOBO THE DUCK#1, Bongface's henchmen follow his instructions to collect the bodies of the various super heroes who died in the Manhattan disaster, which will somehow paradoxically give him the power to break free from his spanglite cage on the moon.

 Gold Kidney-Lady

Gold Kidney-Lady is the leader of a cult of fanatical followers known as the Kidnoids, who live to serve their master by purging and cleansing the kidneys of the galaxy. Gold Kidney-Lady believes that all evil in the universe can be infallibly traced back to improperly functioning kidneys for it is written: "filter not the impurities, and ye shall suffer, yea, even unto the seventh generation." Gold Kidney-Lady claims that fate has chosen her and her loyal Kidnoids to cleanse the kidneys of the galaxy itself. To keep her plans secret, Gold-Kidney Lady placed an amnesia block on Lobo the Duck in GIANT-SIZED BAT-THING#3 and kept Earth's super hero population occupied by sending them up against the Green Skull and Thanoseid while she destroyed the Earth city by city. She was responsible for the mysterious fireball that leveled half of Manhattan and apparently killed several of Earth's most prominent super heroes. In her further efforts to purge and filter the galaxy's kidneys, she sent her Kidnoids to Hi-Tek Gravity Labs of New York City in order to steal the Gravitoninoutometer ("Gravity Machine"). With the Gravitoninoutometer in her possession, Gold Kidney-Lady sought to initiate the "Final Purification" using the machine to cause the moon to collide with the Earth. By this time, however, Lobo the Duck overcame his amnesia block and tracked Gold Kidney-Lady down to her stadium-like lair. Lobo riddled Gold Kidney-Lady with bullets, but her body fell onto the lever that activated the Gravitoninoutometer, causing the moon to careen toward to Earth. Only the efforts of Lobo the Duck and the Godthing were able to save the planet from total murkish oblivion.

--Lobo the Duck#1

Gold Kidney-Lady is an amalgam of the Kidney Lady (S. Blotte) of the Marvel Universe and Goldstar of the DC Universe.


 Godthing

Hawkhawk is an amalgam of Nighthawk (Kyle Richmond) of the Marvel Universe and Hawkman (Carter Hall) of the DC Universe.


Kidnoids

They are the devoted minions of the Gold Kidney-Lady.

As I understand it, the hero Goldstar (who is the anti-thesis of bad-assed Lobo) has a fanatical fan club that worships him in the DCU.  My best guess is that the Kidnoids take that concept and put a Kidney-Lady twist on it. 
So my best bet is Kidnoids = Goldstar's Fan Club + Kidney-Lady elements.
