First Appearance: Marvel Comics Presents I#61/4 (October, 1990)

Powers/Abilities: She possessed a completely self-correcting body. She had no need to eat or drink. Her injuries healed very quickly and she was immune to any kind of poison, radiation or disease. She didn't age and was therefore immortal. Limits to her self-healing power were never determined.

(Marvel Comics Presents I#61/4 (fb) - BTS) - Many years ago Marjorie had a brief relationship with Stephen Strange. Years later after Stephen was gone from her life she began to eat a lot, but she never gained weight although she really tried to. She also didn't get stronger when she exercised and all her injuries healed amazingly quickly. Marjorie realized that she had a completely self-correcting body and therefore she was immortal. She tested her immortality further by taking poison or by starving herself and it didn't kill her. She never had the courage to shoot herself or to jump from a building, but she wouldn't have done the other things if she had thought that they would kill her. She accepted her fate and became a librarian because there she had the chance to read all the books she ever wanted to read.

(Marvel Comics Presents I#61/4) - One day Stephen Strange searched for a special book in a library. He asked the librarian if they had it and realized that the librarian was his former girlfriend Marjorie Brink who hadn't aged a day since he last saw her. She was also surprised to see Stephen and invited him to her place. Stephen asked her why she was dying her hair gray and she began to tell him her story. Afterwards she told Strange that she had heard that he had become a mystic and hoped that he could explain her fate to her. Stephen changed into Dr. Strange and transformed a soap bubble into a solid crystal ball. He told Marjorie to touch it together with him so he could show her the future, but for an unexplained reason they were transported to the future. They were still on Earth, but Marjorie saw the planet Jupiter taking up half of the sky. Soldiers in armor landed near them with their leader and Dr. Strange wanted to fight them off, but Marjorie stopped him when she heard the leaders' voice because it was her own voice. She listened to her future counterpart telling the story of this Earth and watched her fight off demonic beings together with Dr. Strange. She saw how heroic she was in the future and how she led mankind to their final battle. Marjorie returned with Dr. Strange to the present and asked Stephen if the things they saw were real. He told her that this was a taste of what might be in the future. Marjorie had new faith in her life and was ready to live for centuries if there was the chance that she was really needed in the future.

(Wolverine: The Best There Is#1 (fb) - BTS) - Winsor hired Marjorie Brink to join his Unkillables.

(Wolverine: The Best There Is#6 (fb) - BTS) - To keep her under control Winsor tipped her pencils' rubbers in Corruptor's sweat.

(Wolverine: The Best There Is#4 (fb) - BTS) - Marjorie was a big help in expanding Winsor's collection of self-healing and infectious ephemera samples and in finding most of the Unkillables.

(Wolverine: The Best There Is#1) - In the Bayou swamps Marjorie, who had located the immortal Harry Sikes, and Winsor monitored the retrieval of Sikes by Suicide and Vic Slaughter from a quicksand pit Sikes had fallen into during the 1950s.

(Wolverine: The Best There Is#3) - Marjorie calmed down Wolverine, affected by Corruptor's sweat, which had been transferred to him by Yi Yang's kiss, and led him into a lab. Ordering him to sleep she later joined the other Unkillables in the lab to listen to Winsor's ramblings.

(Wolverine: The Best There Is#4) - Marjorie examined the damage done to Wolverine and talked to him about his healing powers and those of the Unkillables. Yi Yang soon entered the lab to start torturing Wolverine.

(Wolverine: The Best There Is#11 (fb) ) - Scavenger and Marjorie watched as Yi Yang started her session to pick Wolverine apart bit by bit.

(Wolverine: The Best There Is#4) - Marjorie kept watching, but eventually left during Scavenger's torture session to present her notes to Winsor. Slaughter, who had eaten some tissue from Wolverine, than handed over a stool sample to her. Marjorie surmised Wolverine could build up resistances to everything. Winsor and Marjorie joined Wolverine in the lab again to talk a bit before Winsor infected Wolverine with several diseases.

(Wolverine: The Best There Is#5) - Marjorie kept notes on how Wolverine's body was affected by the different diseases. She watched Wolverine's escape on a screen and was surprised how Scavenger and Slaughter cancelled each other's powers out.

(Wolverine: The Best There Is#6) - Marjorie became Winsor's last line of defense at his office, but she resisted Winsor's control and tried to shoot herself in the head. Wolverine stopped her and saved her from Winsor, who regained control over Marjorie, who nearly shot Wolverine in the head. Wolverine took Winsor to Corruptor, whose sweat allowed Wolverine to force Winsor to heal himself from all viruses. Meanwhile Marjorie used the sweat on her pencil's rubber on Harry Sikes. By telling him he should feel better Sikes' mental problems were healed.

(Wolverine: The Best There Is#11) - Winsor compelled Marjorie (using Corruptor's powers, I presume) with the need to record all of Winsor's words and actions.

(Wolverine: The Best There Is#12) - Winsor's son Flip telepathically aided Marjorie to overcome her problem. She joined Wolverine and the other Unkillables in devouring Winsor to end his threat. Afterward Harry Sikes and Marjorie Brink decided to keep the other Unkillables in line by turning them into a mercenary crew.

She was an immortal being! Nothing special in the Marvel Universe with people like the Eternals, countless demons, gods or humans like Forever Man running around, but I really dig that alternate timeline with the possessed sun. I wonder which demonic deity took possession of the sun. Could Apalla have gone mad? Or did an Elder God like Chthon merge his spirit with the sun? It needed to be somebody with a good connection to these demons. Chthon could be a good guess, but there are also some sun deities around that could as well have gone bad and lets not forget about death gods, devils or evil rulers from other dimensions. It just had to be somebody who could merge his spiritual essence with the sun. It shouldn't be that hard to find somebody in the Marvel Universe to do this.

You could be half-right about it being an insane counterpart of Earth-616's Apalla. But, that raises the question: how was she driven insane? The most probable answer in my mind is...SHE GOT POSSESSED BY DORMAMMU!
  Think about it. The Faltine, as sentient energy beings, are always looking for more energy to help them reproduce. Yet, Dormammu (a renegade Faltine) seeks energy to make the corporeal body he was born with immortal! Hence, his constant attempts to merge the Dark Dimension with Earth-616's universe. All those stars!
  So, maybe, in the universe of Earth-9010, he decided to stop being so grandiose in his ambitions. Instead, he limited his takeover to Sol, itself. Ultimately, he might have been exorcised by the Dr. Strange of Earth-9010; perhaps, even at the cost of the latter's own life.*
  But, by then, the damage was done. Apalla had been driven hopelessly mad.

"In Wolverine: The Best There Is" Beast was scanning for Wolverine's "X-Gene" and managed to lock on, when asked by Cyclops if anyone else was there, Beast (who can be considered an expert if anyone can) said and I quote "Some very strange biological and tech scans, but no other x-genes."... all of the Unkillables were in the same room as Logan at the time, which means that Marjorie IS NOT a mutant...or rather do not carry the X-Gene and so aren't Homo Superior...

First Appearance: Marvel Comics Presents I#61/4 (October, 1990)

Powers/Abilities: She possessed the same powers as her present Earth-616 counterpart, but over the centuries she also learned to use powerful magical spells.
In addition to her powers she also became an important leader for humanity with all the knowledge she had gathered over the centuries.

(Marvel Comics Presents I#61/4 (fb) ) - After she met Dr. Strange in the past Marjorie knew that he would come to the future one day to help her. She lived on for many centuries and watched mankind go to the stars and return from there. She saw the sun go mad and Earth being moved to orbit Jupiter to flee from the sun. She helped show mankind how to fight back and helped them build a large fleet for a final attack against the possessed sun.

(Marvel Comics Presents I#61/4) - Marjorie and her soldiers surrounded Dr. Strange and her former self. Marjorie told Strange that they were not in danger and took off her hood. She told them the story of herself and that time and that they were ready to launch the final attack. Strange saved Marjorie from an attacking K'Kylthri, but more K'Kylthri followed. Strange and Marjorie fought them off with magic together with the Last of Mankind. Marjorie then gave the final order to start the attack. She was sure that they would win and before Stephen and her former self returned to the present she gave Strange her medallion and asked him to take care of his time's Marjorie.

Demon Sun

Earth's sun was taken over by a power none had ever seen before shortly after mankind had returned to Earth. The sun went mad and humanity transported Earth to Jupiter's orbit while the Demon Sun consumed the inner planets. The sun didn't stop there and with a demonic army called the K'Kylthri the Demon Sun continued its way towards Earth and the destruction of humanity. It sent the K'Kylthri out to kill Marjorie Brink because she reminded mankind how to fight back, but the demons were stopped and mankind started their final attack against the Demon Sun.

--Marvel Comics Presents I#61/4



They were the demonic army of the Demon Sun. Their touch meant annihilation because they were pure anti-life. Again and again the K'Kylthri attacked in the Demon Sun's name. They failed to kill Marjorie Brink when Dr. Strange, the Last of Mankind, and Marjorie herself stopped their attack.

--Marvel Comics Presents I#61/4






Last of Mankind

They were the last humans on Earth. They wore protective armors to shield against radiation and the K'Kylthri's touch. They were capable of using different kinds of laser weapons and spaceships. Under Marjorie Brink's guide they learned to fight back again and built a fleet of ships to stop the sun. Some of them protected Marjorie from attacking K'Kylthri until she gave the order for the assault. The fleet started and Marjorie was sure that they would win this battle.
