First Appearance: The Hood#1 (July, 2002)

Powers/Abilities: Hood has used many different power sources over the years. During his time with the Illuminati, he was casting spells, mostly related to teleportation, but he did summon the Hounds of Hell using blood magic once. Hood briefly made a deal with Mephisto to get demonic power and he has made similar deals with other demonic and interdimensional entities, including Nightmare. Hood has cast a few spells over the years, notably related to teleportation and summoning Hellhounds.

    The mystical boots and cloak he initially wore allowed him to perform many superhuman abilities. When wearing the boots, the Hood could walk on air.  While wearing the cloak (actually bonded with Dormammu), and only while holding his breath, the Hood could turn invisible, although he could later do this at will. At least once, the cloak allowed Robbins to fire a sort of electrical energy from his hands.

    After losing the enchanted hood, Robbins briefly wielded the wish-granting Asgardian Norn Stones.

    Robbins later held several of the Infinity Gems, but seemed most proficient at the Reality Gem.

(Hood#1 (fb) - BTS) - As a child, Parker Robbins and his father witnessed a battle between Daredevil and Electro.

(Punisher VII#3 (fb) - BTS) - Robbins would catch the bus to his daytime job and read Nietzsche: be able to love your enemies and hate your friends.

(Hood#1) - Parker Robbins visited his mother at the Bridgeside Psychiatric Care Center, where she was cared for while in a comatose state.  There, he told her lies regarding how well his life was going.  When an orderly asked him why he seemed to have a different job every time he visited, Robbins threatened the man with a switchblade before leaving.

Shortly after, Robbins met up with his cousin John at a local bar.  There, they discussed how to get Parker the money to get his mother into a better care center.  John told him about a shipment of unknown, but valuable, stuff that would be ripe for stealing.  Before they could continue the discussion, Parker recognized Max Dillon, aka Electro, with a couple of women partying.  During this, an agent of Hydra approached Robbins and King, and the three of them stepped outside.  The agent tried to recruit the two, but they, upset that he was a terrorist, beat him severely in the alleyway.  Parker then stole the man's shoes.

The two went their separate ways to prepare for the heist, with Parker first going to the apartment of Gro (a prostitute he regularly visited), and then returning home to his pregnant girlfriend Sara.  Parker lied to her, saying he had just gotten a job as a security officer and had to report for duty that night.  Meeting back up with King, the two broke into the warehouse. They were surprised to find it nearly empty save for some lit candles and mystical symbols arranged on the floor. Preparing to leave, the two were startled by the Nisanti, a cloak-wearing demon that lept from the ceiling at them. Parker shot it with a gun he had brought, and it dropped to the ground, apparently dead.  Not wanting to leave empty-handed he removed the demon's boots and cloak and took them with him. The two cousins then split up, but as Parker attempted to dispose of the gun in a dumpster, he was harassed by a gang who demanded his shoes.  Robbins threw one of the shoes into the face of a would-be mugger and ran.  Trying to outrun the gang, Parker hurredly put the boots on, and was shocked to find that as he ran, he began to levitate into the air.

(Hood#2 (fb)-BTS) - Parker then spent several hours trying out his new footwear, "jogging" over Brooklyn.

(Hood#2) - Robbins then went to John's apartment and showed off his new boots and their abilites.  While talking, Parker also tried on the cloak he had taken from the creature. Seeing a bottle of alcohol, Parker chided his cousin, and was punched in the gut for his efforts.  Losing his breath, Robbins vanished momentarily.  Once the two figured out how that worked, Parker went to a local gym and used the cloak to spy in the womens locker-room.  John had an idea to utilize Parker's newfound abilites, and told him about a shipment of black-market diamonds being smuggled into New York that night.

(Hood#3) - Returning home, Robbins was confronted by an angry Sara, who had found a condom in his laundry.  He lied to her again, telling her it was a "lucky" charm, given to him by his father years before.  When the costumed Parker attempted to steal one of the small bags of diamonds, he was confronted by four super-criminals (Madam Rapier, the Constrictor, Jack O'Lantern and Shocker) who had been hired by Dennis Golembuski, the Golem, to safeguard his shipment.  With his powers and a little help from luck, he managed to defeat them, only to be confronted by two police officers who had been nearby.  Without realizing they were cops, Robbins shot the male officer in the neck.  John, who had been watching the events, hit the female officer over the head and told his cousin to run, leaving himself to be arrested.  This situation led to the authorities dubbing Parker "the Hood" and placing a reward for his arrest.

(Hood#4) - After trying to ease his mind by visiting Gro, Parker saw a newscast stating that John was under arrest for shooting the police officer. Heading to the police precinct as the Hood, he was ambushed by two FBI agents, Victor Infante and Wyatt Sobel, as well as two techs using confiscated A.I.M gear.  One of the faux A.I.M.s shot the Hood with some sort of sonic disruptor gun, causing him to briefly lose control of his powers.  When one of the agents shot him with another weapon, the cloak caused Parker to go into a rage, chanting an unknown language. Without knowing how, or even controlling it, he blasted all four with a charge of electrical energy from his hands. With all four incapacitated, the Hood visited John in the jail, and promised to find some way to get him out.

(Hood#5) - The Hood checked in on his four assailants, making sure they were all still alive.  He began trying to pawn off the stolen diamonds to get money for John's lawyer, but almost immediately ran into the Shocker at one such shop.  After harassing Parker a little, Shocker left, unaware of who the man was. Knowing that the situation was too tense to try to sell the jewels, Parker left as well, but not before finding out the diamonds belonged to the Golem.  When informed of this, John explained who the Golem was. As the Hood, Robbins surprised the Golem and Madam Rapier at their office, shooting one bodyguard in the crotch to prove he was serious about what he came to talk about.  He then offered to return the diamonds to the mob boss, so long as he kept a small percentage.  The Golem agreed to this, but after the Hood left to meet Madam Rapier later at a rendezvous, the Golem told her to kill him.

(Hood#6) - In civilian clothes, Parker visited a costume shop, where he bought a cloak similar to his own.  Knowing he was being set up, the Hood met up with Madam Rapier at Coney Island, where Shocker, Jack O' Lantern and Constrictor looked on from afar.  As Rapier handed over the money the Hood demanded, she caught him offguard and attacked him. Planning ahead, Robbins had only loaded a certain number of bullets in the gun which Rapier had confiscated, and once she ran out, he forced her at gunpoint to dress in the spare cloak he had bought.  As the FBI agents arrived, Parker disappeared, leaving the agents face to face with Rapier, who they then shot to death, believing her to be the Hood.  He then confronted the other super-villains, handing over the diamonds anyway, and told them to send the Golem a message: Leave him alone. After the FBI agents decided that regardless of them knowing the real Hood was male, they would accept the false one's death as the solving of the case, they had John King confirm their story, and he was released from jail. 

    Parker picked up his cousin and brought him home, telling Sara that he was going to let him stay a few nights.  Parker Robbins then visited his mother at the psychiatric center, and promised her that he would start helping people and make her proud.

(Beyond#1) - The Hood was one of several super-beings drawn to the Stranger's structure which transported them to near a re-formed Battleword, where he (posing as the Beyonder) promised them their greatest wishes if they slew their enemies. Hood tried to disappear to take out the others, but Kraven immediately smelled him out and knocked the wind out of him. Taking advantage of the confusion, another participant, Venom, killed what he believed to be Spider-Man (actually a Space Phantom in disguise).

(Beyond#2) - The portal crash-landed on Battleworld, where the superhumans were met by Michael Collins. They were attacked by Dragon Man, and Hood watched as Collins turned into Deathlok to combat the creature.

(Beyond#3) - The Hood followed Kraven into a forest, and after Kraven had conronted the believed-dead Spider-Man, the Hood confronted the "dead" hero. He shot "Spider-Man" in the kneecap, then dragged him back to the others' campsite by the lungs, which were exposed due to the injury from Venom. With the others watching, Hood threatened to start pulling "Spider-Man"'s organs out one by one until he revealed what he actually was. Forced to do so, "Spider-Man" revealed himself to be a Space Phantom.

(Beyond#4) - After battling Space Phantom, who had taken the form of Xemnu the Titan, Hood and the others used one of Hank Pym's dimensional gateways to go to Limbo, where they planned to wait for the Phantom. After they entered, Venom arrived and destroyed the gateway, trapping them on the other side.

(Beyond#5) - While trapped in limbo, Hood and Gravity showed each other their respective girlfriend's pictures and bonded a little. When the Space Phantom arrived, the heroes captured him and Kraven gave Hood a knife to threaten the Space Phantom with again. The Phantom returned all of the participants back to Battleworld, where they confronted Venom and realized Uatu the Watcher was present. Hank Pym then shot Hood and the others with a raygun, seemingly killing them. Afterwards, he demanded Beyonder give him his reward.

(Beyond#6) - Pym confronted the "Beyonder" who revealed himself to actually be the Stranger. The Stranger then realized that Pym had tricked him and didn't actually kill the others, but shrunk them. Hood and the others returned to full size, and battled the Stranger, who only agreed to stop the experiment due to his paranoia over Uatu's presence. Stranger departed, and the others rushed to escape Battleworld as it fell apart. While Gravity sacrificed himself to hold things together long enough, the pressure killed him. Afterwards, back on Earth, Parker Robbins and Sara attended his funeral.

(New Avengers#35 (fb) ) - The Hood invited many villains to a Chinese restaurant in Brooklyn, where he offered each of them $25, 000 in seed money to join his villain army. Hood soon proofed himself to the others by beating up Tigra for Jigsaw, who filmed it. Hood showed the video to the other villains, who were mostly impressed enough, to join him. Chemistro (Curtis Carr) then informed King and Hood about Owl's auction of a Deathlok replica.

(Daredevil II#105 (fb) - BTS) - Mister Fear (Cranston) refused to even participate in the meeting, which angered the Hood.

(New Avengers I#33) - The Hood attacked the Owl at his auction of a Deathlok replica after his cousin told Owl and the potentional buyers, Madame Masque, Crimson Cowl (Justine Hammer), Jonas Harrow and Wizard, that the auction wasn't authorized.
   Later that night Hood and King went to Hank's bar to get something to eat and drink. They talked about their plans with the Deathlok replica, which was overheard by Wolverine, who in the process attacked them. Hood became invisible upon Wolverine's attack and fought back.

(New Avengers I#34) - Pumping bullets into Wolverine wasn't enough and Hood turned into his demonic form to take down Wolverine long enough to escape.

(New Avengers I#35) - Hood, King, Harrow, Wizard and Chemistro looked at the Deathlok replica and decided to use it to rob the Brown Brothers Harriman & Co. bank in Jersey.

  Hood sent the Wrecking Crew and the Deathlok replica out for the robbery. The Deathlok replica was destroyed, but they stole 12.7 million dollars. Hood gave Chemistro 1.3 million finder's fee and then divided the rest between the other participants in the robbery. Madame Masque then showed Hood and the others that the Mighty Avengers were on TV attacked by alien symbiotes. Hood saw this as an opportunity.

(New Avengers I#36) - The New Avengers attacked Hood's hideout while Hood and his allies still watched the news about the Avengers fight with the symbiotes.

(New Avengers I#37) - Dr. Strange tricked the present villains with an illusion of dozens of heroes attacking them. Hood told his men to split up and run.

(Daredevil II#104) - Hood watched Daredevil leave a warehouse and found a chained Ox inside. Hood told Ox he would help him. Ox later arranged a meeting with Mister Fear. Hood shot Mister Fear's two bodyguards in the head and then confronted Mister Fear himself.

(Daredevil II#105) - Mister Fear told Hood that he only went to war with the Hood in Hell's Kitchen because Daredevil loved the neighborhood. Mister Fear offered Hood Hell's Kitchen when he was finished with Daredevil, but Hood didn't want it. He told Mister Fear that he could've helped him. Hood was contacted by his lookout that Daredevil was coming and Mister Fear asked Hood to leave with Ox to give him the opportunity to fight Daredevil on his own. After Daredevil had defeated Mister Fear, the Hood and Ox watched Matt Murdock in his home. Hood was impressed at how broken Matt was and decided to leave Hell's Kitchen alone for awhile.

(New Avengers Annual I#2) - Hood and his army visited Tigra to learn from her where the New Avengers' hideout was. Arriving at Dr. Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum, Hood used his demonic powers to look through the illusion of the Avengers' hideout. Hood and his army attacked the Avengers and Hood took out Dr. Strange first by shooting him. Wong fought Hood after the lethal attack on Dr. Strange. Hood returned to the main fight to shoot Iron Fist, but was stopped by Tigra, who joined the fight. With the Avengers nearly defeated, Dr. Strange returned and used his Zom-powers to knock all the villains out. Hood was the only one able to escape and then asked the demon within him why they had lost.

(New Avengers I#46 (fb)) - During Masque's breakout, the Hood killed several SHIELD agents and to his and Masque's surprise they were actually all Skrulls.

(New Avengers I#46 (fb)) - Hood was watched by his allies while interrogating a SHIELD agent. The Hood wanted to know everything about Skrulls and with the help of Madame Masque and a few of her bullets he even forced the agent to reveal himself as a Skrull. Though he told the Hood that the Skrulls had no agents among the Hood's villains, the Hood didn't trust him and used his supernatural powers to see it for himself. The Hood then shot Slug, who was a Skrull in disguise, and then ordered to burn down the building and the bodies. Later the Hood demanded from his benefactor to finally reveal himself and it was Dormammu.

(Secret Invasion#4) - When the Skrulls invaded Earth the Hood decided to join the fight against them and told Madame Masque, Wizard, Blood Brother, John King and Bulldozer to get everyone for the attack.

(Secret Invasion#8/Secret Invasion: Dark Reign#1) - The Hood arrived at the meeting of the Cabal, but stayed invisible while Frost, Doom and Namor waited for the other participants. Doom knew he was there and told him to reveal himself. Frost started to read Hood's mind to learn his name and that someone else was inside him. Angered by her mind-probing the Hood threatened her with a gun, but Frost just forced him to point the gun at himself. They were soon joined by Loki and Osborn, the man that had called in this meeting. The Hood listened to Osborn's ideas, but didn't like it that Osborn stole his idea and asked Osborn what he would do if they just turned against him. Osborn introduced them to his mysterious ally and they all gave in. When the Hood explained that his men wouldn't see an upside to an alliance with Osborn, Osborn told him that they should all register and become part of the Initiative. The Hood silently left after the meeting.

(Dark Reign Files) - Quasimodo researched the Hood for Norman Osborn.

(New Avengers I#50/New Avengers I#55 (fb)) - When Cage's Avengers tried to lure Osborn's Avengers into a trap at an old Hellfire Club base, Osborn instead contacted the Hood who led his super-villain army to assault Cage's Avengers (Cage, Captain America/James Barnes, Ms. Marvel/Carol Danvers, Ronin/Clint Barton, Spider-Man, Spider-Woman/Jessica Drew, Wolverine/Logan/James Howlett). Hood led Answer, Blackout, Blood Brother, Brother(s) Grimm, Centurius, Chemistro, Corruptor, Crossfire, Cutthroat, Dr. Demonicus, [Dormammu], Griffin, Jigsaw, Living Laser, Madame Masque, Mandrill, Razor-Fist, Shockwave, Slug, Vermin, Wizard, the Wrecking Crew in this assault.

(Punisher VII#3) - The Hood tortured then killed eight of his captains who had failed to stop the Punisher shutting down three of his operations and killing his agents. He later spoke with Microchip about a trap for the Punisher, setting one at an organ harvesting operation controlled by the Shaolin Scientist Squad and covered by his Black Stream armed operatives. 

The Hood channels Dormammu in the rite of resurrection (Punisher VII#4) - At his covert illegal casino, he took a call via Jaten from Osborn, informing him of the Punisher's hacker accomplice, Henry Russo, and he sent Grizzly to eat him. Microchip then told the Hood of the electronic trap he had set to lure the Punisher closer.

(Punisher VII#5) - The Hood's Black Stream agents failed to stop the Punisher's attack on the casino and the two opponents glared at each other amidst the destruction, with lackey Jaten urging the Hood to leave because of the police. Later, channeling the power of Dormammu, the Hood resurrected various dead criminals to kill the Punisher, notably those killed by [a] Scourge. Those resurrected were: Wraith, Bird-Man, Mind-Wave, Letha, Firebrand, Hijacker, Megatak, Basilisk, Death Adder, the Fly, Mirage, Lascivious (formerly Titania), Cyclone, Miracle Man, Cheetah, Black Abbott and Blue Streak, as well as Turner D. Century.

(Punisher VII#6) - The Hood addressed the assembled resurrected villains, warning them that failure to kill the Punisher would leave them dead again after 30 days, but lying to them that it was the Punisher disguised as Scourge who had killed them. Each one resurrected had been augmented, armed and costumed by the Hood. Miracle Man defied the Hood but was instead made an example of when the Hood caused him great pain.

(Punisher VII#7) - The Hood appeared to the Punisher in a nightmare, offering to reunite him with his family to stop his killing.

(Punisher VII#8) - Via videoconference, Osborn screamed at the Hood for his disastrous plan to have the resurrected villains masquerade as (1980s era) Avengers because it was too much in the open. The Hood warned Osborn not to call screaming again.

(Punisher VII#9) - In the subsequent fight with the resurrected confederacy, the Punisher pictured the demonic Hood when attacked with Hijacker's horror gas.

(Punisher VII#10) - Unconscious, the Punisher was brought before the Hood, who offered to resurrect his wife and children if he would kill G.W. Bridge, who was bound before him, with a magic blade. The Punisher chose instead to slash the throat of Cyclone, but this began the resurrection process along with Microchip shooting Bridge. After the Punisher forced Firebrand to incinerate the resurrecting bodies, he fought the Hood, but the Hood instead overpowered him and aimed to shoot the vigilante, but stopped when the Punisher threatened the Hood's family if he should die. Amidst the blazing carnage, the Hood revealed Henry's father to be the Punisher's nemesis, Jigsaw.

(Dark Reign: Made Men#1/5) - Veiled in threats, the Hood offered the position of supernatural expert to the Enforcer (Mike Nero), who instead triggered an amulet disguising a creature that fed off demonic energies that then clasped onto his face. The Enforcer escaped with the Hood swearing revenge.

(Dark Reign: The Cabal#1/1) - Dr. Doom fantasized about killing fellow Cabal members, including the Hood, who was revealed with his demonic face, with Doom then taking the red cloak for himself.

(Dark Avengers I#15) - During a meeting of the Cabal, the Hood watched as Norman Osborn had the Void attack the defiant Doctor Doom.

(Dark Reign: The Cabal#1/3) - Sara argued with Robbins about his criminal activities, which he still kept hidden from her with lies, until he stormed out and went into his chauffeur-driven car nearby. Sara followed with their baby, but he fiercely warned her away. The driver, Sam, chatted about family ties as Robbins slipped into his Hood guise and they drove to the river, where the Hood shot him dead from behind. Later, feigning ignorance, the Hood gave a warning couched as a short eulogy at Sam's funeral in front of his army of criminals.

(Dark Reign: The Hood#1) - Wanting revenge, White Fang secretly trailed the Hood. Meanwhile, the Hood had set up a hit on Babu Marzouk and materialized in to save his fellow criminals by shooting the armed guards dead. Later, Dormammu channeled himself via the corpses taunting Robbins. The Hood returned to his hideout, promising his assembled villain army what they needed and went to bed with Madame Masque. Then he went to Sara's place and pretended he was working nights before disappearing again as the Hood. White Fang struck, blasting him through a window.

(Dark Reign: The Hood#2) - White Fang pounded the Hood almost to death until Robbins allowed Dormammu to take over, almost killing White Fang in turn, until Robbins was able to take back control of his body. He transported himself back to his hideout where his supervillain army were relaxing. The Hood then revealed to John King what had happened before storming off. The next morning, Emma Frost facilitated a telepathic meeting of the nefarious Cabal, including Norman Osborn, Loki, Dr. Doom and Namor, with Osborn expressing admiration for him unifying criminals. He then woke to find his warehouse on fire and escaped. He later went to visit his mother with Sara and daughter at a convalescence home, afterward going to meet Satana to discuss controlling the demonic power he associated with the cloak.

(Avengers: The Initiative#25) - Norman Osborn, now controlling the Initiative, brought in the Hood as its Chief Operating Officer to establish a new Initiative comprising members (specifically Griffin, Living Laser, Razorfist, Scorcher) of his gang to hunt down fugitive heroes who refused to register. Tigra stormed out while the Hood later told Trauma of his true father, Nightmare, and the non-aggression pact Dormammu and Nightmare had.

(Avengers: The Initiative#26) - Demanding greater self-control of the new, super-powered (but villainous) members of the Initiative, he unleashed his demonic side to consume the briefly defiant Vampiro. Later, the Hood consulted with Taskmaster and Baron Brimstone to round up a group of expendable recruits as a Shadow Initiative to storm Prison 42, which was located in the Negative Zone but had been overrun by the locals.

Robbins channels Dormammu with his flaming hood (Dark Reign: The Hood#3) - Robbins learnt more about the power of Dormammu from Satana and that he could only manifest through a strong human host; however, every time Dormammu's help was accepted allowed him to cross further into the earthly realm.. She also revealed that Dormammu had targeted him as a host from the start. He resolved to stop wearing the Dormammu-bonded cloak, instead using one from the Crimson Cowl, and joined Sara and his daughter for some quality time, but was called away to bail out John King and several criminals. He was called back to the convalescence home where his mother showed greater awareness (but was actually being manipulated by Dormammu).

(Dark Reign: The Hood#4) - Word spread amongst his army and concerns were raised about his reliability. Meanwhile Robbins took Sara and Bree to the new house he had bought them, but then went to one of safehouses where his spoke more with Satana regarding Dormammu. He went to his villain army, supplying Controller with tech. He announced that they would provide back-up in an attack against Force and the NYPD. The assault was going the Hood's way until White Fang intervened with her new upgraded armor. 

(Dark Reign: The Hood#5) - The Hood and White Fang fought furiously until the Hood escaped and confirmed that Sara and Bree were safe from her. He later found that his mother had not recovered and heard from John King that Controller was sowing discord amoongst the villain army. Later Dormammu taunted Robbins by briefly possessing his baby daughter. Sara arrived and took Bree away from Robbins' maddened grasp. As the Hood, he gathered his troops for the next fight against Force and White Fang, intendng to call on Dormammu's cloak until Controller burnt it before him.

(New Avengers I#52 (fb)) - The Hood called for Dr. Strange to release the Eye of Agamotto, but the sorcerer refused, warning him instead of demonic possession, but underestimating who Robbins was actually tied to.

(New Avengers I#54) - The Avengers arrived and provided distraction while Hellstrom, Dr. Strange and Brother Voodoo were able to trap the monster and forced Dormammu to fully reveal himself. Voodoo then expelled him from this dimension, leaving only the inert, naked, reddened body of Robbins. Spider-Man webbed him and he was taken away into custody.

Utilizing the laser mace once more, he managed to open the containment shell to reveal the Reality Gem, using it to shunt himself into the Fantastic Four's headquarters and incapacitate Reed Richards and Ben Grimm.

Red Hulk launched himself at the Hood and was able to snare the red Power Gem. The other Avengers arrived with a short stalemate as each force held two Infinity Gems. Robbins vanished and took the Mind Gem that another group of Avengers was trying to secure. Without realizing it, Robbins used the Mind Gem to fight off Charles Xavier's formidable telepathic attack, the feedback knocking out the other heroes. Robbins then followed the guidance of the Infinity Gems, which continued to call to each other, and arrived on the astral plane, where Dr. Strange had hidden the Soul Gem. There he encountered the figure of Thanos holding the Soul Gem.

The ruse ended and the two ejected from the astral plane, the Avengers attacked once more, the Red Hulk's Power Gem attack causing the Hood to drop two, but he still held the Reality Gem. Robbins used the Gem to run through different realities with the Red Hulk close behind. The two landed back in main reality where Iron Man stood, having brought all the Gems together now.

When S.H.I.E.L.D. agents arrived to gather the addicts, Robbins made them all invisible so no one could take them. He used a ventilator so he could hold his breath longer, only able to keep that many people invisible for as long as he held his breath  (Apparently the story writer did not understand that that's not holding your breath.--Snood.)

(Illuminati I#2 (fb) – BTS) – Hood asked Mad Thinker to design the team matching uniforms.

(Illuminati I#2) – Hood told the others about his plans to raid Asgardia, and said they would need the artificial Bifrost being created by Dr. Karver.

When Black Ant killed Karver, the super-villains in the club attacked.

(Illuminati I#3) – As the Fenris Twins offered two million per head on the Hood’s gang, Hood fired on Tombstone, then he teleported his team to upstate New York. He held a gun to Black Ant’s head for his betrayal, but he chose not to kill him, then he struggled to maintain control of his team. Hood showed them the Roxxon facility they’d be raiding, and told them to be back at midnight if they were in. The Hood talked to Titania at the local bar, opening up to her about his daughter and how he’d embraced his destiny as a villain. That night, at the Roxxon facility, the Hood was pleasantly surprised when his team showed up. Then Thor (Jane Foster) attacked.

(Illuminati I#4) – Hood lied to Thor, telling her his group was the new Defenders, there to destroy the Roxxon lab.

As Tyr and the Destroyer closed in, Hood revealed to Titania that she was reaching her full power potential, and she wondered how he knew that. At his request, Titania punched Hood, who then used his blood to summon the Hounds of Hell. Hood then teleported the team to his base in Hell.

Comments: Created by Brian K. Vaughan, Kyle Hotz, and Eric Powell.

    A great first series, but beware: It was part of Marvel's MAX line, which means there's lots of naughty words.

    The Hood received an entry in the OHOTMU 2006. It was here that his mother's name and the birth of his child were revealed, all per Brian K. Vaughan. That said, it looks like the child's birth did not take place when originally stated. When the Hood showed up in Beyond, it turned out Sara was STILL pregnant with the kid ("due any day now"). Considering she appeared to be pretty far along in her pregnancy in the Hood series, it appears that series happened later on in Marvel chronology than when it was printed (or Beyond occured earlier, though Gravity and Venom's appearances mean it couldn't be TOO much earlier). Either way, the baby was born, but it looks like it was right after Beyond and not between the two series. The Hood is set to become a player in the upcoming New Avengers books, so we'll see what the status is then.

    There was also a one-page comic-style summary of the Hood in Origins of Siege (February, 2010).

    He features on the cover of New Avengers I#62, but he's nowhere to be seen inside. Kind of annoying when they do that.

    The cover of Avengers IV#10 shows him wielding the Infinity Gauntlet, but the most he ever held were three.

    The Nisanti is never named within the series, but in a personal correspondence with Vaughan, he told me it was named so.  This is also one of the words it recites as it tries to attack Parker and John. And if you think "Nisanti" sounds familiar, you may want to thumb through your issues of Vaughan's Runaways series again.

    All references to Mayor Bloomberg and the year 2002 are topical, of course.

    The story with the Hood taking out Tigra because she couldn't see him and then having her screech like a helpless victim was pathetic and ignorant story-writing. Try to grab a fractious (angry and fighting mad) 10 lb. cat with your bare hands even if it can't see you at first. It will scratch and bite the Hell out of you. Now imagine that that cat is 5'10" and 180 lbs. She's got a superhuman sense of smell, superhuman reflexes, and can lift 5 tons. He is a man who doesn't exercise, could turn invisible, and then beat her with the butt of a handgun. Ridiculous. That's Bendis for you...

--The Hood#1 ( 1, 5

Victor Infante and Wyatt Sobel

A rookie FBI agent, Infante was upset that a nephew of his wanted to grow up to be an Avenger.  With the enactment of the Costumed Offender Act, he saw a chance to make a name for himself by taking down a super-villain. With his partner Wyatt Sobel, the two questioned John King about the shooting of an officer by the wanted criminal called the Hood. The Hood later tipped them off about a meeting he was arranging, and when the two arrived, they shot what they thought was the Hood (in actuality Madam Rapier). Deciding to utilize the situation to their benefit, they agreed to let John King go free if he corroborated that the Hood was female.

--The Hood#2 ( 2-6

John King

A recovering drug addict and alcoholic, John King was Parker Robbins' older cousin. He convinced Parker to help him rob the warehouse where they found nothing but the Nisanti.  When that was believed to be a waste of time, King learned of a shipment of hot diamonds being smuggled into the country, and, after discovering the powers of Robbins' cape, got him to use it to try to steal them. When Parker was confronted by two police officers and accidentally shot one, John told him to run, and he himself was subsequently arrested.  Denying any part of the shooting, King sat in jail, communicating with Parker via phone or when he sneaked into the precinct as the Hood.  He explained who the Golem was to Parker.  After Madam Rapier was killed, FBI agents Infante and Sobell told John they'd let him go if he agreed the Hood he saw at the shooting was female.  He did so, and was released.

(Dark Reign: The Hood#2) - Voicing concern over King's alcoholism, Robbins discussed the situation with the demonic cloak. Later, King pulled Robbins from the fire at his hideout and passed him contact details to Satana.

(Dark Reign: The Hood#3) - The next night, King was out drinking with several others of the Hood's villain army when Force arrived and arrested them. Robbins eventually had them out on bail and shot Sphinx when he voiced dissent.

(Dark Reign: The Hood#4) - Alongside the rest of the Hood's army, King followed Robbins' attack on Force, but instead saw White Fang defeat the assembled villains.

(Dark Reign: The Hood#5) - The Hood and his men escaped. King later told Robbins of the growing discord manufactured by Controller among his villain army. Later he saw Robbins manifest Dormammu's flaming power and defeat Force and White Fang. However, no longer trusting King because of his relapses into alcoholism, Robbins sent King away to Florida. 

(New Avengers I#58) - Robbins and Madam Masque teleported to his hideout where John King told him about Jonas Harrow taking his army of villains away.

(New Avengers Finale#1) - John was caught by the Avengers and phoned the Hood so the Avengers could track him down. They took John with them to Los Angeles, California. After catching the Hood the Avengers delivered the Hood, Nefaria, Masque and John King to Maria Hill in Broxton, Oklahoma.

The Nisanti

Worshippers of Dormammu had gathered the bonding cloak, attaching it to an enchanted, already dead "sub-human" in the hope of confining Dormammu. However, he proved too strong, killing his followers and taking control of the body. Sensing Parker Robbins' strength, Dormammu tracked the criminal down, setting up the creature's "death" so that Robbins would take the cloak. Robbins and John King encountered it when breaking into an empty warehouse and was shot "dead" by Parker, who then stole its cloak and boots. Sometime later, it revived, remembering Parker's name, which King had shouted out during the botched robbery. However, this was Dormammu asserting himself.

--The Hood#1 (6, Dark Reign: The Hood#3


At some point in the past, Parker Robbins saved Sara in some unexplained way.  The two became romantically involved and after she became pregnant with his daughter, Bree, began studying courtroom stenography.  He lied to her about his time away from her, saying he'd gotten a job as a security officer.  When she found a condom in his laundry, she confronted him about his infidelity, but he successfully lied to her, saying it was an old one from when he was a kid. After John King was released from jail, Sara welcomed her boyfriend and his cousin home. However, she felt lied to and confronted Robbins again, seeing him get into a chauffeur-driven car, but Robbins fiercely warned her away. She felt closer to him when Robbins sought escape from the Dormammu-bonded cloak, but pushed him away when Robbins threatened the baby when she was briefly possessed by Dormammu.

(Avengers: The Initiative#35) - Sara finally learned the truth about Parker's criminal life after he was arrested following the siege on Asgard. --The Hood#1 (3, 5-6, Dark Reign: The Cabal#1/3, Dark Reign: The Hood#1-5, Avengers: The Initiative#35

Babu MarzoukBabu Marzouk
