Real Name: Who cares?
Occupation: Professional criminal, thief
Affiliations: At least one henchman
Known Relatives: None
Aliases: None known
Base of Operations: Unrevealed; possibly mobile
Appearances: In an ad for the Magic Snake ™ puzzle appearing in various Marvel comics during the month of February in the year 1983 (Example: Defenders #116).
Powers: None but has an obsessive knack for solving the challenges that puzzles (including security systems) present.
History: Magna Mind was a thief of some renown (at least to Spider-Man and some old, white guy). Given his reputation for having an irrational attraction toward conundrums (I know--Im really reading too much into this, folks), Spider-Man placed a Magic Snake ™ puzzle beside an exhibit of King Tuts Diamond, a tempting target for Magna. As expected, Magna Mind, along with a goon, broke into the exhibit, but both of them were apprehended by Spider-Man as they probed the enigma of "over 23 trillion possibilities!"the Magic Snake!
Comments: A generic character that would make great target practice for somebody like the Punisher or Scourge.
This is a precursor to the Hostess characters that will be presented.
Kurt Busiek first crossed the "Advertisement Barrier" in Thunderbolts#24 with Icemaster, so they're all fair game.
