Powers/Abilities: Doctor Druid had a variety of telepathic powers such as hypnosis, allowing him to dominate the minds of others and control what his subjects see, hear and do. While his hypnotic abilities only affect those minds less adept than his own, Dr. Druid used this power to generate convincing hypnotic illusions such as the projection of power-bolts, physical transformation and sudden materialization despite having not truly accomplished any of the actual feats. By placing himself in a trance-like state, Dr. Druid could also telepathically broadcast and receive thoughts as well as scan the minds of others within a planetary distances. He could also telepathically project his astral form from his body.

Dr. Druid could also telekinetically levitate objects weighing up to the max weight that he himself could physically lift (roughly 300 lbs). Using this ability, Dr. Druid could hover himself above the ground, often through intense concentration and meditation.

As a druid, Dr. Druid possessed the traditional Druidic immunity to fire and he was capable of entering a trance state (which he dubbed using his "Third Eye") in which he had complete control of his body's typically involuntarily functions such as heartbeat, respiration, bleeding, cellular regeneration and pain reactions. By controlling his pain receptors, Dr. Druid could increase his own durability sufficient enough to deflect bullets or even resist hellfire. Dr. Druid also possessed immense Druidic and astrological knowledge. With this knowledge, Druid could utilize Druidic Earth magic, allowing precognition and sensitivity to magical and extraterrestrial forces (which Druid saw as trackable magical auras surrounding objects of people), animal empathy and the manipulation of elemental Earth forces such as earthquakes/tremors and low-level control of air, fire, water, plants and weather patterns. His Earth magic, however, could be disrupted by the presence of iron, which acted as a "lightning rod" for Druidic magic.

Using certain Druidic artifacts and items such as candles, potions, mystic symbols (like the Arcane Token of Tiboro, for example) and runes, Dr. Druid could cast stronger Druidic spells such as the creation of scrying portals to view events from a distance, creating glowing orbs of light, mystic blasts and opening dimensional gateways.

After being given a small portion of Dr. Strange's mystic power, Dr. Druid could more easily cast spells and was once able to cast a polarization spell that caused two objects to magnetically repel one another.

While enthralled by Kang Nebula, Dr. Druid powers were magnified immensely, allowing him to clairvoyantly sense where beings might be in the near possible future.

Dr. Druid's non-mystic abilities including being extremely proficient in the martial art of judo and throwing/projecting his voice to fool others.

Height: 6'5"

(Amazing Adventures I#1/4/Weird Wonder Tales I#19 (fb) - BTS) - Dr. Anthony Druid was a physician, psychiatrist, scholar and author who harbored an interest in Oriental cultures.

(Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Master Edition I#26 - Dr. Druid entry (fb) - BTS) - Dr. Druid also developed an interest in the occult, eventually gaining extensive knowledge of occult arts, especially Celtic lore.

(Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe I#3 - Dr. Druid entry (fb) - BTS) - Dr. Druid retired from his psychiatric practice to devote more of his time to an interest in the occult, supporting himself by writing books on psychiatry and related matters, as well as lecturing. After writing his first book about the occult, Druid began research into a second book.

(Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A to Z HC Vol. 3 - Dr. Druid entry (fb) - BTS) - By the 1950s, Anthony Druid had become famous for his skills as an author and physician.

(Amazing Adventures I#1/4/Weird Wonder Tales I#19/Avengers Spotlight I#37 (fb)/Doctor Strange: Sorcerer Supreme I#34 (fb)/Secret Defenders I#15 (fb)) - When a Tibetan lama (secretly the mystic Ancient One) requested a doctor from the United States, Dr. Anthony Druid overheard his colleagues discussing the matter and, having an interest in Oriental culture, decided to fly to Tibet, where he hoped to not only help the lama but experience Oriental culture firsthand.

(Druid I#1 (fb)) - Before boarding the plane, Druid, again using the alias of "Anthony Ludgate," researched ancient Celtic magic and upon learning that Julius Caesar felt all magic originally emanated from the Celts, Druid hoped that he might learn during his trip to Tibet whether their magic also stemmed from the Celts.

(Amazing Adventures I#1/4/Weird Wonder Tales I#19/Avengers Spotlight I#37 (fb)) - Arriving in Tibet, Dr. Druid was led to a monastery in the snow-capped Himalayan mountains, where Druid hoped he could cure the lama's illness. Once inside, Druid learned that the lama would not be paying him but admitted he couldn't refuse to treat a sick patient and agreed to help the lama for nothing if need be. The lama's aide Ramu then informed Druid that he had to cross sacred ground to get to the lama and ordered Druid to remove his shoes and leave his bag of doctor's instruments behind as he traversed the sacred ground. Before he could cross, Druid witnessed the floor open to a bed of hot coals, which he was ordered to cross despite his worries of being burned. Assured that he would be safe as long as he kept his eyes fixed on the Emerald Eye across the room, Dr. Druid refused to let a patient die and reluctantly crossed the hot coals, finding himself unharmed despite feeling the heat. Following the corridors past the coals, Dr. Druid found himself face-to-face with the half-gorilla, half-lion creature called the Gorlion. From a speaker system, the lama's aide explained that any of the doors surrounding the Gorlion would lead to safety but Druid could only reach the lama by completely passing the Gorlion. Feeling he should continue after going that far, Druid dodged the Gorlion and escaped the creature on a flying rope, soon finding and pulling back a drape to reveal the bedridden lama. Learning that the lama was not truly sick, only at the end of his life due to old age, Druid was informed of how the lama had defended Earth from a number of mystic threats and had sought a successor. Revealing that the self-sacrificing Druid was to be that successor, the lama offered his wisdom to prepare Druid for his proposed new role and Druid accepted, his mind awakened to his own internal power and knowledge acquired by the ancient Britons. The lama then seemingly perished, as confirmed by Ramu, as Dr. Druid devoted himself to stopping the mystic menaces that the lama had once battled.

(Druid I#1 (fb)) - Learning that the lama had imparted Druidic knowledge and minor magical abilities, Dr. Druid traveled to America. In an effort to better integrate himself, Druid stopped using the "Anthony Ludgate" alias and concocted an outlandish version of his origin story.

(Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe I#3 - Dr. Druid entry (fb) - BTS) - Using the wisdom and tutelage bestowed to him by the lama, Dr. Druid developed personal powers of the body and mind and the ability to access the arcane knowledge associated with the lore of his Druidic ancestors. While not a true sorcerer due to his lack of manipulation of ambient and transdimensional magical energy, Dr. Druid's knowledge and skills qualified him to be considered a mystic.

(Avengers I#278 (fb) - BTS) - A tabloid began referring to Dr. Druid as the "Master of the Unknown."

(Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Golden Age 2004 - Dr. Druid entry (fb) - BTS) - By 1956, Dr. Druid had been active for several years.

(Amazing Adventures I#4/4 (fb) - BTS) - Dr. Druid traveled to Center City to conduct a lecture entitled "Tales of the Mystic and Occult."

(Amazing Adventures I#4/4/Marvel Universe I#4) - When a spaceship landed in a small midwestern farm town, the townspeople suggesting contacting Dr. Druid in Center City after one of the residents knew of Druid's presence there. Pulled from his lecture to answer the important phone call from the farm townspeople, Dr. Druid readily agreed to help, warning the townspeople to keep out of sight of the spacecraft until he arrived and asking them to contact the nearest construction company. Hours after giving his instruction, Dr. Druid, feeling that the townspeople were lucky that he happened to be in the area, arrived in the town hoping the aliens (see Lurkers) in spacecraft came in peace. Noticing two large creatures rampaging through town and confirming that the townspeople had brought in the largest derrick from the nearest construction company, complete with an iron ball for demolition, Dr. Druid used the derrick to bang on the spaceship to get their attention and induce fear, then placed himself in a deep trance-like state from which he communicated with the aliens via telepathy and informed them that humanity was peaceful and wished to meet the aliens. Succeeding in halting their rampage through town, Dr. Druid allowed the aliens to think they were communicating the destructive derrick and that Earth was filled with such destructive "beings." The aliens, who had not come in peace, responded by attacking the derrick, forcing Dr. Druid to emerge from his trance and fight back, hitting the aliens directly with the derrick's iron ball and knocking one of them into some power lines, frying the creature. Returning to the farm that had contacted him, Druid found that the Army had arrived and was acquiring the aliens' spacecraft. Assuring the Army that the alien threat had ended and asking who was in charge, Dr. Druid met the National Security Agency's Jake Curtiss and informed Curtiss that there was little left of the aliens to study. Curtiss then told Druid that the confiscated spacecraft might give the Security Agency a tip as to where the aliens had originated and suggested they keep the entire event under wraps, prompting Druid to grimly inform Curtiss that he would be surprised at the secrets Druid had kept.

(Weird Wonder Tales I#21/2) - After finding information tying the proposed missing link to Borneo, Dr. Druid informed his friend Anne that he was going to Borneo to bring back the proposed link's remains.

(Tales to Astonish I#12/Weird Wonder Tales I#21/2/Marvel Universe I#4 (fb)) - Visiting the local museum, Dr. Druid met up with a group of other archaeologists including Scotty, whose story and interest in the missing link paralleled his own, and Frank, who was secretly the centuries old monster hunter Ulysses Bloodstone. Within the museum, the archaeologists decided to visit Borneo together to bring back the missing link and once there, Druid and the other archaeologists learned from their native guides that the proposed missing link was actually still alive within the Borneo mountain known as Midnight Mountain. Upon venturing to Midnight Mountain, Druid and the others were attacked by headhunters before coming face-to-face with the missing link himself, the monstrous Gorgilla. When Frank climbed up a tree that was uprooted by Gorgilla, Druid and Scotty helped distract Gorgilla so that Frank could get to safety before the group of archaeologists were met by a random tyrannosaurus rex. After Gorgilla engaged and defeated the tyrannosaurus, Druid, Scotty and the other archaeologists opted to let Gorgilla remain in peace rather than capture the creature.

(Marvel Monsters: From the Files of Ulysses Bloodstone (fb) - BTS) - Dr. Druid wrote about his encounter with Gorilla in his journals.


(Secret Defenders I#15 (fb)) - Continuing to explore the world, Dr. Druid visited a jungle area, where a snake nearly constricted him to death.

(Marvel Universe I#4 (fb) - BTS) - At some point, Dr. Druid learned some basic swahili and later decided to join the Explorers Club.

(Marvel Universe I#4) - Six weeks following his adventure in Center City, Dr. Druid arrived in New York City for the first meeting of the Explorers Club's Monster Hunters, entering their meeting place as Harvey Elder was being rejected for membership and thrown out of the Club by Stanley Hathaway. Dr. Druid then suggested Hathaway was a bit too hard on Elder but Hathaway complained that Elder was a nuisance and that his idea of a city in the center of the Earth was ridiculous. Hathaway then led Dr. Druid into the room where the other Monster Hunters were meeting. Introduced to Ulysses Bloodstone and the Wakandan Zawadi by Jake Curtiss, whom Bloodstone knew as "Curry," Dr. Druid learned that Curtiss had used several aliases in his line of work. Curtiss then revealed that Bloodstone had also used several names in the past and that both Bloodstone and Dr. Druid had recently encountered monsters. Druid was then astounded when Bloodstone related the story of his encounter with a tyrannosaurus rex that led to his meeting Zawadi and then related his own encounter with a dinosaur during his recent expedition to Borneo alongside a group of archaeologists. When Curtiss showed photos of Gorgilla while discussing Druid's Borneo expedition, Druid became suspicious of Curtiss, asking where he had obtained the photos of Gorgilla when the archaeologists that were with Druid had sworn to keep Gorgilla's existence a secret. Curtiss revealed that the National Security Agency had spies within Druid's expedition but the discussion was abruptly ended when Zawadi found Harvey Elder spying on the Monster Hunters meeting from an air vent in the floor. Worried about how much Elder had overheard, Curtiss allowed Dr. Druid to use his mesmerism powers to convince Elder that he had witnessed nothing out of the ordinary and that the Monster Hunters were beneath his notice. As Elder was affected by Druid's hypnotism, Dr. Druid further convinced Elder that the Monster Hunters would not be able to help him join the Explorers Club and showed Elder, who announced that he didn't need any of them, the door. Bloodstone then commended Druid on accomplishing the hypnosis so quickly and the humble Druid remarked that it was just a parlor trick, instead commending Zawadi on her alertness and remarking that he should have sensed Elder's presence. Curtiss then informed the Monster Hunters that there had been a recent rash of monster sightings and that he had suspicions that there was a source behind them all, hoping that Druid and the others would agree to help him uncover the source. After Bloodstone and Zawadi readily joined up with Curtiss, Dr. Druid paused momentarily before heartily agreeing to join as well, secretly wondering why the minds of both Curtiss and Bloodstone were strangely closed to his mental powers.

(Marvel Universe I#5) - Dr. Druid sensed Gorgilla's presence in New York and painfully informed the other Monster Hunters, unaware that Harvey Elder had shaken off Druid's mesmerism at a nearby bar after seeing Gorgilla's picture on television. The Monster Hunters quickly geared up and prepared to battle Gorgilla as Dr. Druid changed into his costume and ceremonial robe. Emerging from a room in-costume, Dr. Druid explained the reasoning behind his costume and recounted his origin for the Monster Hunters before sensing Gorgilla within underground tunnels leading towards the Bronx. Following Dr. Druid's senses, the Monster Hunters flew to a nearby baseball stadium via helicopter and found Gorgilla rampaging on the field. When Druid's mental powers proved unable to access Gorgilla's mind to calm the monster, Zawadi jumped from the helicopter to engage Gorgilla. Gorgilla was quickly entrapped by a magnanium steel net and Druid joined the Monster Hunters in investigating the downed creature. Zawadi soon discovered a strange device at the base of Gorgilla's skull and Druid attempted to determine what the device was. Jake Curtiss warned the Monster Hunters not to touch the device but his warnings came too late, as Druid, Bloodstone and Zawadi were hit with an energy backlash that awoke Gorgilla. Moving at superhuman speed, Curtiss rescued Druid and the other Monster Hunters from the awakened Gorgilla and Druid soon determined that the device had kept Gorgilla in the thrall of another. Dr. Druid then questioned who might have been controlling Gorgilla as Zawadi noticed that Jake Curtiss was nowhere to be found. A short time later, after Curtiss had apprehended a small group of spies, Druid and the other Monster Hunters located him in their helicopter and Curtis expressed relief that Druid and the others were safe. Bloodstone immediately questioned Curtiss' superhuman speed powers and Druid seconded, wondering how Curtiss was able to accomplish such a feat. Claiming his real name was Adam Clayton and that he had obtained his powers via a radiation experiment that backfired, Curtiss was asked by Dr. Druid if they should call him Adam but Curtiss replied that "Jake" would be fine before focusing the discussion on the apprehension of Gorgilla. When Gorgilla climbed the Statue of Liberty, going after one of the spies, Dr. Druid telepathically contacted Gorgilla, reminding the creature that he was Gorgilla's friend and attempting to calm the monster. After the Monster Hunters rescued the spy from death at Gorgilla's hands, Dr. Druid succeeded in calming Gorgilla and used his telepathy to reach into the monster's mind, confirming that Gorgilla had definitely been under the control of another who had forced Gorgilla to board a ship to America. Druid further learned that the bomb the spies apprehended by Curtiss had been planting contained the scent of the man controlling Gorgilla and Gorgilla had been after the spy after smelling the scent. Druid then suggested the Monster Hunters return Gorgilla to the wilds of Borneo and Curtiss replied that he would make a few calls.

(Marvel Universe I#6) - While driving Gorgilla to the airport in an effort to get Gorgilla back to Midnight Mountain in Borneo, the Monster Hunters noticed Gorgilla escaping and Dr. Druid quickly had Zawadi take the wheel of the truck as he flipped around to the back to calm Gorgilla with his mesmerism powers. After successfully calming Gorgilla, Dr. Druid returned to the driver's seat and apologized for forcing Zawadi, who had never driven before, to take the wheel. Explaining that they were ten miles from the airfield, Dr. Druid informed the other Monster Hunters that Jake Curtiss was supposed to meet them there and when the Monster Hunters questioned why Druid used the term "supposed," Druid explained that Curtiss had much to answer for after he had misled the team using various alias and concealed his superhuman speed powers from them. Once at the Lakehurst Naval airfield in New Jersey, the Monster Hunters donned military uniforms and Dr. Druid calmly reminded Gorgilla that the plane would be taking the creature home before he was called away with a phone call. Before the group flew off, Dr. Druid told Bloodstone and Zawadi something in secret and then accompanied Curtiss on a plane to Borneo, where he kept the group updated on Gorgilla's mentality. Shortly after, Druid summoned Zawadi from feeding Gorgilla to meet with the other Monster Hunters as Curtiss briefed them on what he had learned from the spies caught earlier. The briefing was interrupted, however, when Gorgilla noticed the stowed away Harvey Elder, who had been following the Monster Hunters since shaking off Dr. Druid's mesmerism. Admitting that he thought they had taken care of Elder, Dr. Druid watched as Elder ranted that they were intentionally keeping Elder from joining the Explorers Club until Zawadi easily downed Elder with a hit to a key pressure point. Moments after Curtiss commended them on taking care of Elder so quickly, he was pinned by Bloodstone and Dr. Druid demanded to know Jake Curtiss really was, having checked on Curtiss' Adam Clayton alias and learned the real Adam Clayton was dead. Before Curtiss could explain himself, the Monster Hunters' plane was hit and while Druid and the others scrambled to right the plane, Curtiss flew outside and fixed the problem, returning to admit that he was actually the former World War II hero Hurricane (later known as the Eternal Makkari). Shocked at the story, Dr. Druid confirmed via his senses that Curtiss was telling the truth and the Monster Hunters soon accepted Curtiss' apologies for misleading them. Upon arriving safely on Midnight Mountain, Druid and the Monster Hunters were attacked by a group of Deviant Lizard Men and during the attack, Curtiss was captured. Chasing the Lizard Men, Dr. Druid and Zawadi were soon separated from Bloodstone, who became trapped under a rockslide, only to watch Bloodstone free himself with some help from Gorgilla. Assuring his teammates that he was fine despite the Bloodstone gem embedded in his chest, Ulysses Bloodstone suggested they focus on finding Curtiss and Dr. Druid revealed that he had read the mind of the third Lizard Man before his death, and that he knew where the Lizard Men's base was.

(Marvel Universe I#7) - The Monster Hunters boarded their plane and Bloodstone asked Druid to direct them to the Lizard Men's base but Druid refused, claiming that Ulysses Bloodstone owed Zawadi and himself an explanation for keeping his Bloodstone-spawned strength a secret from them. After Bloodstone recounted his remarkable origins, he admitted that he had hidden his powers from them due to thoughts that they wouldn't believe his story but Zawadi and Dr. Druid both admitted that they would have believed him. Bloodstone then again asked for the location of the Lizard Men's base and Druid revealed that they were on an island in the sea of Japan, giving Bloodstone latitude and longitude coordinates. Druid then waved goodbye to the creature as the Monster Hunters departed Midnight Mountain, wondering if he would ever see the monster again. Recognizing Druid's coordinates as the location of Monster Island, Bloodstone flew the Monster Hunters' plane towards the island, unaware that Harvey Elder had regained consciousness and was preparing to knock them out with a fire extinguisher. Zawadi soon noticed Elder, however, and Dr. Druid decided to deal with Elder by tossing him from the plane in a parachute. As they neared the island, Dr. Druid admitted that he didn't think it would have been so easy to arrive just as the giant monster Gigantus appeared and refused their entry to the island. After Bloodstone shifted the plane's engines to VTOL mode and burned Gigantus' face, Druid and the Monster Hunters landed on Monster Island and entered the cave of the Lizard Men. Dr. Druid announced that he would lead the group through the darkness and a connection was established between Bloodstone and himself to allow Bloodstone to "see" through the dark cave. After dispatching with a monster in the cave, Dr. Druid sensed a cry for help from their teammate Hurricane, learning that Hurricane had been tortured and was in a chamber beneath them. Leading the Monster Hunters to Hurricane's torture chamber, Dr. Druid generated an illusion of Gorgilla, terrifying the monsters inside and surprising the Deviant Warlord Kro, who had been behind the monster attacks and Hurricane's capture. Kro soon realized Gorgilla was just an illusion as Druid and the Monster Hunters busted into the chamber and Bloodstone freed Hurricane. During the scuffle, Kro unleashed the monstrous Tricephalous as Bloodstone hope that Tricephalous was another of Dr. Druid's illusions. Unfortunately, Kro escaped into the subterranean tunnels beneath the island, leaving more monsters that caused earthquakes, forcing Hurricane to lead Druid and the other Monster Hunters out of the cave to safety. Once safe, Dr. Druid expressed concern that they should have known more about Hurricane's past before the mission and Hurricane replied that there were some things man wasn't meant to know, prompting Druid to remark how much he despised that cliche. Hurricane promised to be up front in the future, suggesting that the Monster Hunters possibly band together if another case came their way, and Dr. Druid reluctantly agreed to rejoin them later if another case arose, remarking that they first had to get off Monster Island. A smiling Hurricane explained that levitation was a common trait among his people and levitated Druid and the other Monster Hunters, flying them away and promising they would be in Tokyo in a matter of minutes
. Following the adventure against Warlord Kro, Dr. Druid added to his original journal entry on Gorgilla, remarking on Gorgilla's return to Midnight Mountain and the Monster Hunters' adventure on Monster Island.

(Marvel: The Lost Generation#2) - In 1958, Dr. Druid and the Monster Hunters, joined by new member Namora, visited Long Island, New York in search of a monster. Asking if Bloodstone had found anything, Dr. Druid learned that while Bloodstone saw no sign of the monster, his Third Eye had picked up auras on the grounds on a nearby research center. Zawadi soon decided that they should go inside to investigate and Druid warned her to be careful, as the research center was a restricted area. Running across the heroic First Line group, Zawadi was attacked by First Line member Black Fox, prompting Dr. Druid to get involved, feeling no more need for stealth. When another First Line member, Liberty Girl, ordered Dr. Druid to hold it right there, Druid agreed and hypnotically froze her in mid-air. The brief fight was quickly broken up by the National Security Agency's Agent Scott, whom Jake Curtiss recognized as outranking himself, and the two heroic teams realized they were both there to investigate the same research facility. As Liberty Girl disbelieved the existence of monsters, one erupted from the ground beneath Druid, the Monster Hunters and the First Line. Sensing a mind within the monster, Dr. Druid attempted to distract the monster as the two teams tried to fight it off. When the monster transformed back into a human being, Dr. Druid confirmed that the man's name was Dr. Schreiber and he had been inspecting an alien device within the research facility when it transformed him into a monster. Bloodstone immediately ordered the Monster Hunters to further investigate the facility and when Namora busted a hole in the facility wall, Druid, the Monster Hunters and the First Line found a man (secretly Skrull Commander Zuhn) speaking with the criminal Blackjack. In the ensuing scuffle, First Line member Agent Scott was found by the Yankee Clipper appearing as an alien and the Clipper took Scott to the nearest hospital, where Dr. Druid and the Monster Hunters followed to make sure Scott was okay.

Using a levitating rope to reach the theater's rooftop, Dr. Druid discovered a large set of magnets that Zamu had used to "levitate" his audience and soon found more advanced technology that Zamu had used to simulate his magic. Determined to learn more about Zamu, Dr. Druid stalked Zamu's home for hours until Zamu returned and removed a rubber mask disguising his true nature as an alien from the planet R'Zahn. When he learned that Zamu planned to takeover the state while posing as the governor, Druid made his move, throwing his voice to announce himself while Zamu looked around, confused. Demanding Druid show himself, Zamu pulled out his Infra-Ray Detector and Druid rushed to grab Zamu, hypnotizing him into revealing his whole plan to the police. After Zamu was taken into custody, the police asked Druid what made his suspicious of Zamu in the first place and Druid revealed that he could sense true magic and did not sense a mystic aura about Zamu.

(Amazing Adventures I#2/3/Weird Wonder Tales I#22) - When luxury ocean liner, the S.S. Luxuria, mysteriously disappeared, the office of the steamship line summoned Dr. Druid for his expertise in locating the Luxuria. Agreeing to help, Druid and Ramu, the former lama's aide, traveled to the site of the Luxuria's disappearance.

(Weird Wonder Tales I#22) - Along the way, Dr. Druid ordered one of the shipmates to get the boat moving faster, as the lives of some 500 people aboard the Luxuria depending on him.

(Amazing Adventures I#2/3/Weird Wonder Tales I#22) - Several hours later, Druid arrived at the Luxuria's disappearance site and had his aide Ramu lower him into the waters inside a bathysphere. When the bathysphere struck something solid, Dr. Druid ventured out of the bathysphere in scuba gear and discovered that he had hit a secret entrance into an underwater city called Aquatica, where he soon noticed the captured Luxuria encased in a giant bubble. The rebel Aquaticans soon broadcast an invasion message and Dr. Druid opted to stop them but the Aquaticans soon noticed him and attacked. Defeating several of the Aquaticans using his judo skills, Dr. Druid hypnotized the Aquatican leader into broadcasting an image of himself using hypnosis techniques. His hypnosis broadcasted to every Aquatican in the rebel city, Dr. Druid forced the Aquaticans to believe there were no living creatures on the surface world, only a wasteland not worth their time. Dr. Druid then broadcasted hypnosis to the captive humans onboard the Luxuria so they would forget their experiences within the Aquatica before releasing the bubble housing the Luxuria, allowing it to float safely to the surface. Returning to the steamship office line, Dr. Druid lied and told the office that the Luxuria had merely went off course the entire time and had not disappeared. While the office refused to believe Druid's story, they reluctantly dropped the topic since the Luxuria had been returned safely and Druid agreed that the liner's safe return was all that mattered.

(Amazing Adventures I#6/4/Man-Thing I Giant-Size#3/2) - When new houses for sale began disappearing in a small midwestern town of Greenbirch, Dr. Druid was summoned due to his expertise in strange cases. As Druid investigated the disappearance sites, the Greenbirch police received a ransom note for one million dollars, prompting Druid to go off on his search alone. Visiting every scientist in the area, Druid came up with no leads but when he returned to the police station, one of the officers mentioned a little old scientist that had recently moved into town a little over a month earlier and Druid immediately suspected the scientist. Departing to 218 Elm Street to apprehend the scientist, Druid visited the scientist's home and projected his voice into the house, terrifying the scientist into fleeing, opening the door for Druid as he escaped. Finding the new homes inside the scientist's home at reduced size, Druid confirmed his suspicions that there was a scientific explanation for the houses' disappearances. The scientist attempted to shoot Druid, only to be shocked when Druid entered a trance-like state from which he tensed every fiber of his body to the point where the bullets bounced off his skin. Announcing that he too had powers, Druid convinced the scientist to remove a rubber mask, revealing himself as the alien Krogg, who announced that he had planned to plunder Earth. Disappearing from sight, Krogg promised Druid that when they next met, he would destroy Druid and Dr. Druid then restored the homes to their proper location, refusing to provide any other explanation to police as to how the houses were returned. Dr. Druid then departed Greenbirch on foot, praying that when Krogg returned, he would be able to thwart him once more.

(Incredible Hulk II#210 (fb) - BTS) - Dr. Druid sensed that the sorcerous Maha Yogi had mastered control of his Jewel of Jeopardy, actually a fragment of the shattered Hellfire Helix, and planned to come out of hiding to either conquer or destroy the world. Needing a strong enough being to stop the Maha Yogi, Dr. Druid sought out the incredible Hulk.

(Incredible Hulk II#209) - After the Hulk stumbled into an alleyway and transformed back into Bruce Banner following a battle with the Absorbing Man, Dr. Druid approached Banner from the shadows.










(Incredible Hulk II#210) - Sensing the approaching Dr. Druid, the startled Banner awoke and immediately became suspicious of the hood-wearing Dr. Druid, who assured Banner he meant no harm. Revealing himself by removing the hood, Druid explained that he needed Banner's help but Banner asked if he could clean up before they discussed why he was needed. Dr. Druid then conjured up an hypnotic illusion of clothing to disguise himself and Banner, and the two retreated to Banner's tenement apartment, where they were both greeted by Banner's landlady April Sommers, who had been waiting on Banner to return. Reminding Banner that they had much to discuss, Druid ventured upstairs and Banner followed, where Druid removed the hypnotic illusion, returning them both to their heroic outfits. Informing Bruce Banner of the Maha Yogi's plans, Dr. Druid admitted he had sought out the Hulk due to his strength but Banner refused to transform back into the Hulk, not even to save the entire planet. Agreeing to accompany Dr. Druid as his normal self, Bruce Banner joined Druid as they drove towards Merlin Industries, stopping for gas and information along the way. Upon hearing that some people that visit Merlin Industries don't return, Druid and Banner nonetheless decided to venture into the industrial complex, where Dr. Druid hypnotically made the security guard think they had shown the proper identification to go inside Merlin Industries. Once through the gates, however, the door slammed shut behind the two heroes and Dr. Druid and Banner were met with a gigantic illusion of Maha Yogi, who ominously welcomed the two. The floor then opened up to reveal hot coals and Druid bade Banner to climb atop his shoulders before he walked the hot coals without injury, boasting that the coals proved no threat to one who had mastered the arcane powers of the ancient Britons. When the heroic duo passed the hot coals, the Maha Yogi boasted that he wouldn't allow them to reach him and unleashed an armored, motorcycle-riding knight to dispose of the two. Banner made quick work of the knight, however, by stopping the motorcycle, causing the knight to fly off the bike into the wall, prompting Dr. Druid to commend Banner and note that he had made the right choice in selecting Banner for assistance. Maha Yogi responded by having his other knights fire on Druid and Banner but Druid hypnotized the knights into immobility then levitated their guns from their hands and knocked the knights out with them. The gunfire created panic within Dr. Banner, who transformed into the Hulk, and Dr. Druid exerted a subtle hypnotic influence over the Hulk in order for the Hulk to plow through the Maha Yogi's guards. Arriving at Maha Yogi's throneroom, Dr. Druid ordered the Hulk to capture Maha Yogi but the Yogi exerted his own hypnotic control and ordered the Hulk to destroy Dr. Druid. The conflicting mental orders caused Hulk to lose consciousness and Maha Yogi ordered his henchman Mongu to slay Dr. Druid.

(Incredible Hulk II#211) - Maha Yogi ordered Dr. Druid to surrender before ordering Mongu to attack and while dodging Mongu, Druid announced that even if he'd wanted to surrender, he wouldn't since the fate of the world hung in the balance. Druid then levitated the curtains within Maha Yogi's throneroom to envelop Mongu, buying himself some time before Mongu ripped the curtains to shreds. Dr. Druid continued dodging Mongu's physical attacks until Maha Yogi downed Druid with a mind-blast and ordered Mongu to remove Druid and the Hulk from his presence and into the dungeons. Some time later, after Dr. Druid had awoke, he noticed the Hulk regaining consciousness and informed the man-brute how they had both been captured and shackled into devices wired for electric shock should they try to escape. Knowing he would need the help of Dr. Bruce Banner to escape, Dr. Druid placed the Hulk in a trance state, entered the goliath's mind and forced a transformation back into Bruce Banner. Exhausted from the expenditure of energy required to initiate Hulk's transformation, Druid went limp and Banner freed Druid from his shackles. When Druid subsequently blasted the dungeon door with arcane energy, the two heroes found themselves facing Mongu, who led them back to Maha Yogi, who ordered Bruce Banner into his gladiatorial arena with Mongu despite Dr. Druid's begging to reconsider. Holding Dr. Druid under a spell of confusion, Maha Yogi watched as Banner fought against Mongu, eventually transforming into the Hulk. When Maha Yogi focused his power on increasing Mongu's power, Dr. Druid regained his composure and used his levitation powers to ensorcle a rope to bind Maha Yogi's hand, causing him to drop his Jewel of Jeopardy. The Jewel then fell into the arena, where the Hulk crushed it, causing Maha Yogi to age into a decrepit man barely able to move. As Dr. Druid and Hulk watched, Mongu retrieved his master and walked off, still loyal.

(Weird Wonder Tales I#22/2) - Dr. Druid told the story of a possible future in which humanity competed for heat on a frozen Earth.

(Ghost Rider II#26/Ghost Rider II#27 (fb)) - Always interested in occult phenomena, Dr. Druid traveled to Delazny Studios, where he hypnotized the secretary of Charles Delazny Sr. to keep her from asking him to leave. When Delazny returned to his office, he angrily stormed in and began berating Druid, who admitted that he wanted to know everything Delazny knew about his employee, the Ghost Rider. Thinking Druid was trying to give Ghost Rider a better offer, Delazny ordered Druid to get out but Druid responded with an hypnotic suggestion for Delazny to sit down. Under Druid's thrall, Delazny sat down and apologized for being so rude and Druid remarked that Delazny had no need to speak, as he would just enter Delazny's mind to get the information he needed. After entering Delazny's mind, Druid only learned that Delazny's son was the criminal Enforcer and that Delazny believed Ghost Rider to be nothing more than special effects generated by stunt cyclist Johnny Blaze. Swearing to destroy the occult apparition Ghost Rider, Druid was disappointed that he had not learned more from Delazny but by the time Johnny Blaze had returned to the Studios, Druid was hypnotically trying to get the information he needed from an entranced Karen Page. Upon seeing Blaze, Druid ordered him to stay where he was but Blaze brushed off Druid's orders. Announcing that he knew who Blaze truly was and that he would not permit Blaze to leave, Dr. Druid levitated some electrical cords and bound Blaze where he stood. Proclaiming Ghost Rider to be an agent of Satan that had to be driven from the world, Dr. Druid threatened Blaze into unleashing his Ghost Rider persona and shrugged off the hellfire blasted at him by using his own concentration together with his mystic immunity to fire. Realizing he shouldn't have transformed publicly, Ghost Rider fled on an hellfire motorcycle but Dr. Druid pursued Ghost Rider to a graveyard, where Ghost Rider attempted to impale Dr. Druid with part of the graveyard fence. Unfazed, Druid used his object levitation ability to animate a nearby tree limb to bind Ghost Rider but Ghost Rider burned himself free of the tree. Dr. Druid responded with attempted hypnotism but Ghost Rider was not affected, forcing Druid into a physical attack but the more powerful Ghost Rider knocked Druid to the ground and nearly killed him with a gravestone before relenting. Grabbing Druid, Ghost Rider announced that he would spare Druid's life but Dr. Druid revealed the Token of Tiboro that caused Ghost Rider to transform back into Johnny Blaze, whom Dr. Druid knocked out with a punch. Entering Blaze's mind to learn more about his most powerful foe, Druid learned that Blaze was truly a good man and that he had been wrong in trying to destroy him. Realizing the error of his ways, Druid opted to simply leave rather than cause more grief.

(Ghost Rider II#27 - BTS) - As Johnny Blaze rode off on his motorcycle, he wondered why Dr. Druid did not kill him when he had the chance and suspected that Druid finally realized that Ghost Rider wasn't as evil as he looked.

(Avengers I#225 (fb) - BTS) - After returning to Earth, Dr. Druid was contacted by the spirit of his ancestor, the druid Amergin, and learned of the destruction affecting the mystic realm of Avalon, which would ultimately destroy Earth if Avalon were to fall. Combining his own magic with that of Amergin's, Dr. Druid sat out to recruit the Avengers in an effort to help restore Avalon in the 12th century.

(Avengers I#225) - Dr. Druid appeared within Avengers Mansion, having bypassed all of their security, and revealed to the shocked Avengers that they had been chosen for an urgent and perilous mission. The team immediately prepared to attack Druid, who boasted that his powers came from Earth magic like his ancient namesake and that even without his powers being augmented, his hypnotism could stop the Avengers in their tracks. Placing the Avengers in an hypnotic trance, Druid revealed that only Iron Man might have been able to stop him due to the iron content in his armor and admitted his pity that he had not the time to appeal to the Avengers' better natures. Druid then entered a trance-like state himself and the icon on his chest began billowing smoke that covered all present. When the smoke cleared, only Druid and Iron Man were present, still entranced, while the other Avengers were transported to 12th century Avalon. Once there, the druid Amergin explained to the Avengers how he had sent his spirit to the present day to combine his magic with Dr. Druid's in an effort to bring the Avengers to 12th century Avalon in an effort to halt the destruction plaguing the realm.

(Avengers I#226) - During the Avengers' battle against the Avalon-attacking Fomorians, the Fomorian Bres traveled to the present-day Avengers Mansion, where he found Dr. Druid and Iron Man, still in their trance-like states. Gloating, Bres quickly realized it was pointless to speak, as the entranced Dr. Druid and Iron Man could not hear him, and Bres then prepared to kill Dr. Druid to trap the Avengers in the 12th century. Unfortunately for Bres, Avengers Thor and She-Hulk arrived in the present-day mere moments before Bres could kill Dr. Druid and they quickly jumped into battle against Bres. After defeating Bres by using the entranced Iron Man as a weapon, Thor and She-Hulk realized they could not get back to the 12th century since Dr. Druid was still entranced and any attempt at waking him might strand their teammates in the 12th century. When the Fomorians were defeated in the 12th century, the Avengers were transported back to the modern era, where Dr. Druid awoke and commended them on playing their parts perfectly against the Fomorians. Hawkeye quickly warned Druid to ask for their help next time instead of just forcing it and Druid replied by claiming he would have asked under different circumstances but then revealed that the Avengers' intervention had allowed the Black Knight to triumph against the Fomorians. Dr. Druid then generated a mystic scrying portal to reveal Black Knight's current whereabouts, only to show that the Black Knight had seemingly perished in the 12th century. Without control, Dr. Druid's portal then changed scenes to present-day Garrett Castle, where the shattered Black Knight statue reassembled itself and transformed back into the original body of Dane Whitman, restoring the Black Knight to his proper time and body as a final gift from Dr. Druid's ancestor Amergin. Hawkeye immediately suggested the Avengers call up the Black Knight but Dr. Druid suggested the Avengers let Black Knight adjust to his newfound life, remarking that Black Knight would come back to the Avengers when he was ready. Dr. Druid then departed in a flash of light, commenting "until we meet again."

(Marvel Super Hero Contest of Champions#1/Avengers I Annual#16 (fb)) - Dr. Druid was transported to a giant arena alongside a slew of other superheroes as part of Grandmaster and Death's Contest of Champions game. Daimon Hellstrom, the Son of Satan, met up with Dr. Druid there and remarked that he sensed their transportation there was not the work of the Devil. Druid replied by claiming that the forces at work there seemed to beyond the mystical. Druid soon learned, alongside the other assembled heroes, that they were pawns in a Contest of Champions between the cosmic embodiment of Death and the Elder of the Universe known as the Grandmaster. Druid then watched as Grandmaster and Death chose their heroic representatives from the assembled heroes and prepared them to fight.

(Ghost Rider II#78 - BTS) - The demon Nightmare used a dreamscape illusion of Dr. Druid, Dr. Strange and the Son of Satan to remind the unconscious Johnny Blaze of his guilt and accuse him of being a coward.

(Power Man & Iron Fist I#118 (fb) - BTS) - At some point, Druid became familiar on the mystic ruler of the ancient city of K'un-Lun, Master Khan. After being stricken with radiation poisoning, Iron Fist (actually a H'ylthri duplicate) opted to return to the mystic city of K'un-Lun in an effort to recuperate. In order to get to the mystic city, Power Man and "Iron Fist" contacted Dr. Druid after attempting Dr. Strange, only to find Strange not home.






(Power Man & Iron Fist I#118) - Dr. Druid created a pentagram in which he sat inside of and entered the mind of "Iron Fist" to try to discern the location of K'un-Lun from "Iron Fist"'s memories. When Power Man arrived to check on things, Druid asked "Iron Fist" to take his mind off of the radiation poisoning in his body and focus only on K'un-Lun. Displaying illusory images from "Iron Fist"'s memories, Dr. Druid remarked on how patience was a virtue when Power Man complained about how they weren't actually there yet. In reply, Power Man revealed that they had contacted Dr. Strange first but he wasn't home, prompting Druid to sarcastically comment that Power Man's confidence in Druid's abilities was flattering. Druid then invoked the Ancient Grimoire of the Seven Dead Sorcerers to open the dimensional gateway to K'un-Lun. Unfortunately, the spell was interrupted when Druid was briefly possessed by a dark mystic force. After recovering, Druid revealed to "Iron Fist," Power Man and their ally Colleen Wing what had happened and that he sensed great darkness in K'un-Lun. When "Iron Fist suggested that Druid might be sensing the evil Master Khan who ruled K'un-Lun, Druid admitted his familiarity with Master Khan and explained that the dark force he sensed was much worse. Despite Druid's warnings, Power Man announced the urgency of getting the dying Iron Fist to K'un-Lun and Druid reluctantly agreed to continue helping, bidding the trio to grasp hands with him as he teleported all present to the mountain slopes near K'un-Lun, where they found the destroyed city. Greeted by the surviving Lei Kung the Thunderer, Iron Fist was led away to learn of K'un-Lun's fate, leaving behind a confused Power Man, Colleen Wing and Dr. Druid. Explaining to Power Man that they had accompanied Iron Fist to protect him from hostile forces, Druid remarked that the dark forces had yet to present themselves and decided to levitate away to explore the mystic city alone.

(Power Man & Iron Fist I#120) - Following an encounter with the Black Dragon, Power Man met with Lei Kung and decided to visit the Dragon King in hopes of continuing to aid Iron Fist and Power Man summoned Dr. Druid from his exploration for transport. Admitting he had been enjoying himself exploring K'un-Lun, Druid remarked on his assumptions that him being summoned back was important as the Black Dragon erupted from the ground, battling Iron Fist. Realizing quickly that it indeed was important, Dr. Druid was asked to transport both Power Man and Lei Kung to the Dragon King's palace at the bottom of a great K'un-Lun lake. Dr. Druid did as requested and transported the duo to the Dragon King's palace.

(Avengers I#276 (fb) - BTS) - Dr. Druid returned from K'un-Lun and wrote a new book, soon beginning a book tour to support the book's release. At some point, Druid heard news that the heroine Captain Marvel was quite extraordinary.

(Marvel Monsters: From the Files of Ulysses Bloodstone (fb) - BTS) - At some point, Dr. Druid wrote research into the alien monster Manoo into his journals. He also made notes about the alien energy creatures called the Blips, suggesting a possible connection between them and the energy creatures of Erdile once used against the Avengers by the Collector.

(Avengers I#276) - Dr. Druid was staying at the New York Plaza Hotel in preparation for an autograph session at Doubleday's and an appearance on a national talk show. From his hotel room, Dr. Druid watched on television as a Darkforce energy cube surrounded Avengers Mansion while halfway paying attention to his assistant Henshaw, who was going over Druid's itinerary. Sensing a feeling a dread that he suspected had to do with the situation at Avengers Mansion, Druid concentrated and used his mental powers, soon seeing an image in his mind's eye of a captive Black Knight. Dr. Druid quickly suspected Black Knight was not the only captive and immediately got to his feet to change into his costume, much to the surprise of Henshaw, who asked what Druid was doing. Announcing to Henshaw that some things were more important than promoting a new book, Dr. Druid left the hotel, feeling that he had an old debt to repay. Making his way to Avengers Mansion, Dr. Druid thought back on his previous encounter with the Avengers when they together ended the threat of the Fomorians from the distant past and upon arriving, Druid sensed that the black cube surrounding Avengers Mansion was otherworldly in nature. Telepathically scanning the Darkforce barrier, Druid found its source, the catatonic Blackout and hypnotized Blackout into dropping the barrier to allow Druid's entry. Once on the Mansion grounds, Dr. Druid followed Blackout's psychic emanations to the Mansion roof, where he remained unseen and witnessed the Avengers' Captain Marvel surprise attack on Moonstone and Blackout, thinking that Marvel was every bit as extraordinary as he had heard. Lost in thought, Druid failed to see the arriving Baron Zemo, who downed Druid with a Needler gun.

(Avengers I#277/Avengers Finale (fb)) - Groggily recovering upon hearing Baron Zemo attempting to get Blackout to reestablish the Darkforce barrier around Avengers Mansion, Dr. Druid telepathically reached out to Blackout and hypnotically broke Blackout's conditioning, causing Blackout to turn on Zemo. When Zemo attempted to reassert control over Blackout, Druid telepathically informed Blackout that he would not be able to further assist while still fighting off the paralyzing effects of Zemo's Needler gun. Explaining to Blackout that he might be risking his life by fighting Zemo's control and suggesting Blackout run away if he had to, Druid watched helplessly as Blackout refused to run away and apparently died of a cerebral hemorrhage trying to fight off Zemo's control. Recovering enough to stand, Druid confirmed Blackout's death and Zemo accused Druid of forcing Blackout to resist his control but Druid revealed that he had merely unlocked Blackout's mind and it was Blackout's choice to defy Zemo. Admitting that he was no Avenger and was present to repay an old debt, Druid was threatened by Zemo until Captain Marvel returned and fought Zemo herself. Captain America and Wasp arrived shortly after and when Wasp asked what Druid was doing there, he calmly replied that he was attempting to help against the Masters of Evil, admitting that he had hoped to be of more help.

(Avengers I#278 (fb) - BTS) - One week after Baron Zemo's attack on Avengers Mansion, Dr. Druid visited Avengers member Black Knight in the hospital, hoping to examine the Knight's Ebony Blade since he had an interest in the occult, and ultimately requested to accompany Black Knight to Hydrobase to recuperate.

(Avengers I#278) - Accompanying the Black Knight to the Avengers Hydrobase, Dr. Druid sparred with Black Knight, who admitted that he was glad to have run into Dr. Druid at the hospital as exercise was just what he needed. When Black Knight mentioned his surprise at Dr. Druid's hand-to-hand combat expertise, thinking that Druid was strictly a sorcerer, Druid explained that while he occasionally dabbled in the occult and had investigated cases of unexplained phenomena, his powers came from the mind. He then commended Black Knight on his skills with the quarter-staff and when Black Knight responded that he had picked up the skill during the five years he spent trapped in the 12th century, Druid informed the Knight of his knowledge of Black Knight's time in the past before their sparring session was interrupted by a communication from the Wasp, who warned Black Knight that he was pushing himself too far after his recent concussion. Black Knight assured Wasp he would be ok and claimed he had even brought a doctor in case something happened, introducing Dr. Druid. Assuring Wasp she needn't worry about Black Knight, Dr. Druid informed the Wasp that the Black Knight had the constitution of an ox and revealed that he had sufficient medical training to make sure Black Knight didn't overdo it. Once the Wasp had been sufficiently assured and ended the communication, Dr. Druid and Black Knight were surprised by Hydrobase's perimeter alarm informing them of the arrival of the Atlantean warlord Tyrak. When Black Knight engaged Tyrak, Dr. Druid jumped into the fray as well, using his cloak in an attempt to blind Tyrak, who easily swatted Druid aside and ripped the cloak from his face. Dr. Druid followed up by attempting to hypnotize Tyrak into not fighting but Tyrak fought against Druid's entrancement. Avengers Captain Marvel, She-Hulk and Wasp soon arrived on the scene as well and Tyrak was soon downed (although Tyrak merely feigned defeat). As Captain Marvel briefed Wasp on the situation, Druid noticed She-Hulk and thought to himself how impressive she was before quickly sensing Tyrak's brainwaves and announcing his return to the Avengers. Following Tyrak's second defeat at the sword of the Black Knight, Dr. Druid remained to ensure Tyrak was held in one of Hydrobase's oceanographic labs and Wasp thanked Druid for his assistance. Commenting he had done very little, Druid confessed that he had only originally visited the Black Knight in the hospital in an attempt to study the Knight's Ebony Blade. The Wasp asked Druid not to be embarrassed and she admitted she had let Black Knight defeat Tyrak because she was tired of being the one to save the day, which Druid commended on being a good judgment call. When the Wasp continued, admitting she needed a break from the Avengers, Druid explained that she was the only one who could make that decision.

(Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Master Edition I#19 - Avengers Roster entry - BTS) - Dr. Druid petitioned for membership into the Avengers.

(Avengers I#278) - Three days after the defeat of Tyrak, Dr. Druid was invited to sit in on an Avengers meeting where the Wasp formally invited him to join the team and announced her plans to take a leave from the team after Captain America seconded Dr. Druid's nomination. Captain America was then made interim team chairman and as his first act, he announced that the team would need to vote on Druid's membership before officially nominating the next chairman.

(Avengers I#279 (fb)) - The votes from the Avengers came in and Dr. Druid accepted his invitation to join the Avengers, thanking them all. He then sat at the meeting as the Avengers voted on their newest chairman, with both Captain America and Black Knight nominating Captain Marvel, secretly thinking to himself about the things he could accomplish if he were to lead the Avengers. His eyes fixed on the nervous Captain Marvel, Druid decided to bide his time since probationary Avengers members were not allowed to take the office of chairman while still in their probationary period. As Druid watched, Thor and She-Hulk argued over who should be leader until Captain America tabled the discussion until the team's next meeting.

(Avengers I#279) - Early one morning, while She-Hulk and Black Knight attempted to relax on the beaches of Hydrobase, Dr. Druid played a hypnotic prank on She-Hulk by making her see a monster, which she lunged at and hit only sand. He then revealed himself, laughing hysterically, prompting She-Hulk to warn Druid that he might not like her sense of humor if he didn't watch his step.

(Avengers I#281) - Upon learning that the comatose Hercules had been kidnapped from his hospital, the Avengers investigated the hospital and Dr. Druid could detect no psychic traces of anyone being in the hospital room, noting that whoever had kidnapped Hercules had made it a point to erase all evidence of ever being there. He remained there until Thor arrived and Nurse Richards identified Thor as the kidnapper, prompting Thor to bust through a window on a search for the real kidnapper himself. Druid and the other Avengers followed but Thor insisted he saw who he thought was the kidnapper and, proclaiming it a matter of gods, Thor flew off again, soon losing Captain Marvel by teleporting with his hammer, Mjolnir. When Captain Marvel returned to her teammates to discuss Thor's teleportation, Druid felt the public should not see the Avengers discussing private matters and used his powers to hypnotically make the Avengers appear as everyday civilians. As the discussion continued, Dr. Druid reminded the Avengers not to completely overlook the possibility that Thor was involved in the kidnapping, prompting Captain America to immediately come to Thor's defense. When Captain Marvel admitted Thor's involvement might be possible, Druid continued, suggesting that Thor could have been compelled against his will to aid in the kidnapping, and Captain America deferred to Druid, asking Dr. Druid if there would be signs of some sort of mental tampering. The discussion was soon halted when She-Hulk began rampaging, shouting "kill!" While the other Avengers attempted to talk sense into She-Hulk, Dr. Druid sensed a supernatural agent at work unlike any he had ever encountered and thought how, if the Avengers could not uncover its source, they would be doomed. Captain Marvel soon managed to at least down She-Hulk, quickly calling over Dr. Druid to help She-Hulk over her perceived madness. As Druid attempted to hypnotically calm She-Hulk, he missed seeing the disguised Olympian god Dionysus, who had secretly drugged She-Hulk with his Elixir of Frenzy. Retaking control of She-Hulk, Dionysus renewed She-Hulk's frenzy and she swung at Dr. Druid and would have killed him if he had not ducked. Captain America re-engaged She-Hulk, ordering Druid to get to safey while he kept She-Hulk busy. Deducing Dionysus was no ordinary man when he shrugged off an attack by the Black Knight, Dr. Druid had Captain Marvel blasted Dionysus into a wall, seemingly knocking him unconscious and revealing his true form. While checking Dionysus' vital signs, Dr. Druid quickly realized Dionysus was only feigning unconsciousness when Dionysus got Druid in a chokehold. Rendering Druid unconscious, Dionysus was attacked by She-Hulk but he managed to down She-Hulk with a potion. Regaining consciousness in Olympus, Druid and the other Avengers found themselves facing the Olympian gods, where Zeus proclaimed the Avengers would face judgment for injuries incurred on his son Hercules.

(Avengers I#282) - Taken to Fortress Tartarus in Hades for torture, Dr. Druid was fitted with a facemask and placed in chains while Captain America was placed on a torture wheel and Black Knight and She-Hulk were chained together around a column. Discovering the captive Avengers, Namor the Sub-Mariner, who been led there after also being captured, freed Black Knight and She-Hulk, who in turn, freed Druid and the other Avengers. While his chains were being undone, Druid remarked that Thor was still missing from their number and as the team escaped, Druid pointed out the small army of guards heading their way. The Avengers quickly fought back, with Dr. Druid using the power of illusion to trick the guards into fighting one another. After locating Thor, the Avengers found the Olympian Pluto pinning Thor to the ground with a massive stone block and Druid suggested Black Knight slice the block precisely down the middle while Captain Marvel destroyed Thor's chains, freeing him. Pluto soon joined the fray, toying with the Avengers per Zeus' decree that the Avengers die by torment and while avoiding the attacks, Dr. Druid noted that he had never seen such sheer malevolence. Escaping Fortress Tartarus, Druid and the Avengers were led to the Pathway of Infinity, a golden bridge which connected Olympus to Hades. Unfortunately, She-Hulk and Dr. Druid soon noticed that Pluto had followed with a war wagon, which he used to split the Pathway of Infinity in half, preventing the Avengers from progressing further.

(Avengers I#283) - Deciding to stand their ground, Dr. Druid and the Avengers fought Pluto's legions, with Druid surprising Thor with his physical prowess, which Thor thought was as adept as the powers of Druid's mind. During the battle, Pluto attempted to crush the Avengers with a large stone, which Thor caught and wedged into the Pathway of Infinity, created a bridge over the hole Pluto had earlier created, allowing the Avengers to cross and escape out of Hades. Arriving in Olympus, Druid and the Avengers briefly rested while determining their next course of action. After witnessing Zeus' anger at the Avengers despite remarks from the god Apollo that the Avengers might not be responsible for Hercules' comatose state, thanks to a scrying pool from the sympathetic god Prometheus, Druid suggested a retreat back to Earth rather than attempt to change Zeus' mind on the matter of the Avengers' guilt but Thor explained that the Avengers could not hope to reach the dimensional gateway to Earth without being noticed. When the team discussed standing their ground in Olympus rather than allow the god Ares to unleash his legions on Earth, Druid admitted that he didn't think even his mental powers would be enough to persuade Zeus to believe the Avengers were not responsible for Hercules' condition and Captain Marvel replied that perhaps the Avengers could manage to persuade enough of the other Olympian gods to intercede on the Avengers' behalf. Determining to choose their Olympian allies carefully, Namor the Sub-Mariner and Captain Marvel visited Venus while Dr. Druid, Thor, Captain America, She-Hulk and Black Knight visited Hephaestus and Athena to retrieve Thor's hammer. Hephaestus responded by unleashing his metal automatons against the group and Dr. Druid quickly realized the automatons had no minds to mesmer, forcing him to levitate a nearby chain to knock the automatons into Hephaestus' foundry. The flailing automatons weakened the foundry, however, and it cracked, unleashing molten metal throughout the area, which Dr. Druid levitated over, noting that the metal was much hotter than the coals he had once trod over. The other Avengers acted to save Athena and Hephaestus from the molten metal and shortly after, convinced them to believe that Druid and the other Avengers were not responsible for Hercules' condition as Captain Marvel and Namor arrived with Venus, whom they had also convinced. The three gods then led Druid and the others to Apollo, whom Druid reminded that Zeus was not entirely infallible. Druid then asked for permission to assist Apollo in pulling Hercules from his comatose state but Zeus arrived, stirred on by Ares, and demanded to know what was going on. When Captain America begged Zeus to listen to reason, an angry Zeus attacked, severely injuring Captain America, Dr. Druid and Black Knight (as well as Athena, Venus and Hephaestus), leaving only She-Hulk, Thor, Captain Marvel and Namor standing. A weakened Cap asked the standing Avengers to check on Druid and the others but Thor announced a retaliatory attack.

(Avengers I#284) - While Thor, Captain Marvel, Namor and She-Hulk fought Zeus, a recovering Dr. Druid vanished, whisked away by the messenger god Hermes to Prometheus, who bandaged Dr. Druid's head and attempted to heal the other injured Avengers that Hermes had also absconded with. When the broken-legged Captain America assured the Wasp, who had been captured by the goddess Artemis, that the Avengers would pull through, Dr. Druid remarked that he was in awe of Captain America's faith, prompting Captain America to reply that if they had fought their way back from Hades, anything was possible. As Prometheus continued trying to heal the Avengers, Captain America commented on the legends of how Prometheus had defied the gods to aid mankind and Druid admitted his hopes that Prometheus was as capable as the myths suggested. When Prometheus began his attempts at healing Hercules, Dr. Druid was surprised at Prometheus projecting his own life force into Hercules, whom Druid assumed had suffered severe brain damage and noted that Prometheus would have to exert precise control to not further damage Hercules. Captain Marvel subsequently bathed the entire area in light from her battle with Zeus, temporarily blinding Prometheus during his restoration of Hercules, who jumped from the table addled and perceived enemies all around him. Druid then watched as Hercules proclaimed the injured Avengers to be his enemies.

(Avengers I#285) - Savagely knocking aside the injured Captain America and Dr. Druid, Hercules rampaged, downing Wasp as she attempted to wake up Hera and Prometheus. Before Hercules could kill Wasp, Dr. Druid jumped onto Hercules' back and attempted to mesmerize Hercules into calming down and seeing the truth that the Avengers were his allies. Briefly calmed, Hercules fought back, denouncing Druid's mesmerism as a trick but fighting back the pain, Druid continued his attempt to telepathically get into Hercules' inner mind and soon forced Hercules to relive the memories of his recent encounter with the Masters of Evil. Shamed, Hercules reacted on instinct, swatting the concussed Dr. Druid aside before realizing the error of his rampage and rushing to stop Zeus' attack on the other Avengers. After the unknowing Zeus knocked Hercules into a tree before realizing who his attacker was, Druid helped Prometheus carry Captain America to regroup with the other Avengers. Realizing he had been made with grief over Hercules' injuries, Zeus allowed Hercules and the Avengers to recuperate from their injuries in Olympus and an hour later, Dr. Druid and a recovered Captain America met with the other Avengers to reveal that the god Apollo had healed their injuries. After Thor declined to have Apollo waste time trying to heal the curse Hela had placed on him, Apollo announced that Druid and the other Avengers had been invited to special tribunal of the gods. At the tribunal, Dr. Druid watched as Zeus declared Earth off-limits to the Olympians despite protest from both Neptune and Ares. Following the tribunal, Prometheus was tasked with seeing Druid and the other Avengers safely back to Earth and after an ominous warning of tests to come, Prometheus transported Druid and the others to a busy Manhattan corner. Wasp immediately announced that she had to leave, as people were waiting on her, and Thor also left to deal with Hela's curse as Dr. Druid remarked that Thor's tone sounded as if Thor would not be returning. The rest of the Avengers then ventured towards their Quinjet and when Druid asked if Captain America was joining them, Cap told them to go ahead and he would see the team at their next meeting.

(Mephisto Vs.#4) - Dr. Druid accompanied the Avengers as they were summoned to the scene of Thor's fight with the Midgard Serpent, where a local informed Captain America of the battle and the wall of flame that had shot up afterwards. Before the man could continue, the Avengers' west coast branch also arrived on the scene and when She-Hulk, Iron Man and Captain Marvel proved unable to penetrate the wall of flame surrounding Thor, Dr. Druid surmised that the source of the flames must be an entity of vast supernatural power. When a gap appeared in the flames, Dr. Druid and the Avengers rushed inside to find a still-breathing-but-unmoving Thor but Captain America soon determined Thor dead once they removed his armored helmet. Seeing the demon Mephisto near Thor, the Avengers rushed to avenge their fallen teammate but Iron Man's repulsor beams were reflected by Mephisto to hit Hawkeye and Dr. Druid before Mephisto easily defeated the remaining Avengers.

(Thor I#381) - The unconscious Dr. Druid and Avengers laid in the center of Mephisto's wall of flame, unaware that Grundoth and a small group of mountain giants had arrived to beat around the lifeless body of Thor.

(Mephisto Vs.#4/Thor I#381) - Mephisto lost the rights to Thor's soul to Hela, who appeared and removed the Avengers' memories of the events. As the confused Avengers wondered why they were there, Dr. Druid sensed sorcerous powers at work and remarked that, in time, he could find a solution to the Avengers' confusion. Captain America suggested that, in the meantime, the two Avengers branches return to their respective bases and Druid boarded the Quinjet to depart alongside the Avengers' east coast branch.

(X-Men vs. the Avengers#1) - Dr. Druid and Captain America were dropped off in front of a Mansfield, Ohio shopping plaza and Captain America quickly found the security officer to order an immediate evacuation while Dr. Druid went into the Kmart store, hypnotizing the intercom announcer into telling the shoppers to look at Druid at the front of the store. When the customers did so, Druid hypnotized them into leaving the area quietly without pushing, thinking to himself how receptive the shoppers were to his mass hypnotism and how it typically would not be as easy to accomplish such a feat. His mind then drifted towards thoughts that he was being useful there on the ground while others, such as Captain Marvel, Black Knight, She-Hulk and Thor, were up in space blasting meteors that threatened to hit Earth. When one of the last meteors sent the Avengers Quinjet to Earth and Thor cushioned the landing with summoned winds, Dr. Druid, Captain America and the Kmart shoppers were there to see the victory. The National Security Council arrived moments later and, after the Avengers determined the largest meteorite to be magnetized and having tooled metal parts, the National Security Council commended the Avengers on there service and admitted they couldn't wait to tell the Russians about the meteorite, much to the confusion of Dr. Druid and the other Avengers. A short time later, Dr. Druid joined the other Avengers at a meeting where Captain America revealed that the NSC had determined the meteorite to be part of Magneto's former orbital base, Asteroid M, and that they were working with Russia to plot Magneto's assassination. As the other Avengers discussed whether or not Magneto's assassination was warranted, Druid admitted his ignorance of Magneto's record and assumed the other Avengers were much more familiar with the former mutant criminal. Druid then listened intently as the Avengers shared various horror stories of Magneto's past crimes, eventually remarking how he heard about Magneto sinking a Russian submarine, killing everyone onboard. Determining that Magneto deserved a fair trial rather than assassination, the Avengers tracked down and attempted to arrest Magneto, who resisted, claiming he had no quarrel with the Avengers. Dr. Druid managed to place Magneto in a hypnotic trance and force him to relax but before Black Knight could place restraints on Magneto, the X-Men intervened, announcing that if they had a problem with Magneto, they had a problem with the X-Men. Before any actions could be taken, Wolverine sensed the impending arrival of others and Dr. Druid confirmed five approaching minds from the north: the Soviet Super-Soldiers. The Soviet Super-Soldiers immediately demanded the Avengers turn Magneto over to them but Captain Marvel refused, reminding all present that he was in the Avengers' protective custody. When the X-Men disagreed on how to handle the Super-Soldiers, the Soviet Super-Soldiers misunderstood and moved to retaliate for their aggression.

(X-Men vs. the Avengers#2) - A fierce battle broke out between the X-Men, Avengers and Soviet Super-Soldiers, with Dr. Druid and the X-Men's Storm facing off against the Super-Soldiers' Ursa Major. Affected by Dr. Druid's hypnotic illusions, Ursa Major tackled what he thought to be Dr. Druid, only to find himself passing through the illusion, and Dr. Druid followed up by revealing the ruse and wrapping Ursa Major in vines manipulated via Druid's levitation powers. He then hypnotized Darkstar into using her Darkforce powers to entrap her own teammates Ursa Major and Vanguard then took over her mind, assuring her that no one would be harmed. Druid then had Darkstar round up and contain the rest of the Soviet Super-Soldiers despite her teammates pleading with the entranced Darkstar to free them. Explaining to the other Avengers that Darkstar's trance would last another hour, Druid assured them that they needn't linger there in favor of finding Magneto, whom the X-Men had absconded with. Druid was subsequently present when the Avengers learned that Magneto had split from the X-Men to search for the remnants of Asteroid M. Tracking Magneto, Dr. Druid and the Avengers confronted him after he had gathered what belongings he wanted and was preparing to destroy Asteroid M's remains. Magneto responded by trying to ward off the Avengers for their own safety, knowing that the explosive charges he had set to destroy Asteroid M were about to blow, but the Avengers were soon met by the arriving X-Men and the two groups fought until Magneto revealed the explosive charges. Captain Marvel tried in vain to find the charges, however, and the Asteroid exploded, prompting Magneto to protect everyone present with a magnetic shield. While the Avengers took care of their own, Magneto escaped with the X-Men and Black Knight wondered where Dr. Druid had gone, unaware that Dr. Druid had secretly snuck into the X-Men's jet by hypnotically disguising his presence.

(X-Men vs. the Avengers#3) - As Darkstar was snapped out of Dr. Druid-created entrancement by Titanium Man, Dr. Druid remained within the X-Men's jet, sensing that Magneto was now hiding something from the X-Men. Knowing he would be discovered soon enough, Druid attempted to reach out with his telepathy and contact the Avengers but the act of doing so revealed him to the X-Men. Refusing to talk, Druid was kissed on the forehead by Rogue, who learned that Druid had been unsuccessful in revealing the X-Men's location to the other Avengers as Druid himself passed out from the strain of Rogue absorbing his essence. Once the X-Men had landed in Singapore and dropped off the unconscious Dr. Druid, a subsequently recovering Druid used a short wave radio to contact the Avengers and inform them of his location, explaining to the arriving Captain Marvel how the local police had been most helpful but the X-Men and Magneto were long gone by the time he had regained consciousness. The other Avengers arrived soon after and they all split up to search Singapore for signs of the X-Men, with Dr. Druid taking a rickshaw and hoping his contacts in Asia might uncover a clue to the X-Men's whereabouts, and that he would be the one who found the heroic mutant group. When a ship sent out a distress call due to a battle between the X-Men and the Soviet Super-Soldiers, Dr. Druid piloted the Avengers Quinjet as the Avengers responded to the call, using his hypnotic powers to ease the sailors' fears.

(X-Men vs. the Avengers#4) - Dr. Druid accompanied the Avengers as they stormed into an office where Mr. Ronalds, the head of the national unit seeking Magneto, and demanded information on the whereabouts of the X-Men and Soviet Super-Soldiers following their teaming with the Avengers during the earlier ship rescue. After Magneto was spotted and Mr. Ronalds had the Avengers leave, feeling as if they had their chance to capture Magneto, Dr. Druid and the other Avengers left the room and discussed whether they should have ever gotten involved. When Ronalds returned and announced the X-Men's escape from government capture, the Avengers angered Ronalds but refusing to recapture the X-Men. The Avengers did, however, go out on their own to confront the X-Men but the argument was interrupted when Magneto telepathically froze the Avengers where they stood using circuitry in his helmet, wishing to speak with the X-Men and Captain America only. After Captain America talked Magneto into destroying the telepathic circuitry in his helmet and turning himself in for trial, Dr. Druid and the other Avengers watched from Hydrobase as Magneto went on trial.

(Marvels: Eye of the Camera#5) - Dr. Druid and the Avengers later traveled to Paris in person, escorting the X-Men to Magneto's trial, where a special tribunal was being held.

(X-Men vs. the Avengers#4) - Druid and the others stayed in the court to hear Magneto's verdict, in which Magneto was allowed to go free.

(New Mutants I Annual#3 - BTS) - The holographic form of Dr. Druid and the other Avengers was used in a Danger Room training session created by the New Mutants' Cypher to test his fellow New Mutants. When the New Mutants objected to fighting the Avengers, Cypher altered the programming to make the holographic Avengers appear as teenage counterparts of the adult Avengers. During the fight, Warlock managed to knock out the holographic, teenage Dr. Druid.

(Marvel Mangaverse I#6 - BTS) - An unknowing Dr. Druid (as well as Earth-148611's Nightmask and future incarnations of Earth-616's Daimon Hellstrom and Dr. Strange) was glimpsed by Earth-2301's Dr. Strange when Strange encountered his reality's Eternity.

(JLA/Avengers#3 (fb) - BTS) - Dr. Druid was briefly plucked from time during a forced merger of Earth-616 and the reality of a distant cosmos by the distant cosmos' alien scientist Krona.

(JLA/Avengers#3) - His memories altered by the reality merger, Dr. Druid attended a party gathering the Avengers and the distant cosmos' Justice League. During the party, Captain America and Superman, who were equally time-displaced and retaining portions of their true memories, came to blows over the way the world should be and when they hit one another, it fractured the fragile merger of the two realities.

(Avengers/JLA#4) - As time and reality began breaking apart, the surviving Avengers and Justice League members from a distant cosmos stormed Krona's base and during the battle, as time shifts altered costumes and brought in/took away heroes from throughout time and the two realities, Dr. Druid and sorcerers from both realities battled several time-displaced villains from both realities that had been co-opted into Krona's service. When Krona was defeated, both realities were restored to normal and the time-displaced heroes (including Dr. Druid) and villains were returned to their proper time and reality with no memory of what had transpired.


(West Coast Avengers II Annual#2/Avengers I Annual#16 (fb)) - Dr. Druid participated in the east coast vs. west coast Avengers baseball game within the Houston Astrodome, hitting the ball every single time he came to bat. When the Silver Surfer arrived to warn the Avengers that an Elder of the Universe was planning to kill them, the west coast Avengers found that, by the time Silver Surfer had explained the situation, Dr. Druid and the rest of the east coast Avengers had already been killed. Transported to Death's realm, Dr. Druid and the east coast Avengers appeared before the Elder of the Universe Grandmaster, who expressed regret at their appearance there. Dr. Druid quickly sensed dark energies present that made him uneasy and Captain America asked the Grandmaster to explain his regret. Revealing that both himself and the east coast Avengers were dead, the Grandmaster explained that his fellow Elder, the Collector, had bargained with Death to provide the west coast Avengers in exchange for immortality. The west coast branch soon arrived, having been killed by the Collector, who informed them that the Grandmaster planned to deliver Dr. Druid and the others to Death, and mistakenly thought they would have to fight the east coast branch to save them from Death. As the two misinformed Avengers squads squared off, Dr. Druid battled Tigra, dodging her attacks then briefly surprising her with illusions of demonic creatures. Quickly realizing the illusions were not real due to her enhanced sense of smell, Tigra stood still and Dr. Druid, still trying to make Tigra believe the illusions, claimed he could not control the creatures, which dissipated as Druid dropped the illusion upon realizing Tigra knew they were fake. Tigra then prepared to attack once more and Dr. Druid, realizing he could not mentally affected her cat-like acute senses, ran for his life. Cornered, Dr. Druid resorted to illusions again, threatening to topple a rock tower on top of Tigra, who again saw through the illusion due to smell. Taking advantage of Tigra's bravado, Dr. Druid threatened again to topple a rock tower but this time, Tigra assumed the rock tower would again be a fake, only to have her tail pinned by a real rock toppled by Dr. Druid's telekinesis. With Tigra sufficiently distracted by the pain in her tail, Dr. Druid finally managed to take control of Tigra's mind, stopping her attack. Druid then returned to the Grandmaster, where he released Tigra from her trance as the other Avengers returned with their defeated opponents. Having succeeded in summoning Death due to the Avengers defeating their teammates, Grandmaster then revealed his plan all along, to succeed in involving Death, and announced that he had won the universe.

(Avengers I Annual#16) - Realizing the Avengers had been duped by the Grandmaster, Dr. Druid and both branches of the Avengers attacked Grandmaster, who easily swatted them aside and revealed that he had also gained Death's powers by trapping her. The Avengers then witnessed Grandmaster reveal that he had started a new game in which he had created five life-bombs that would detonate, causing a chain reaction that would create a new big bang to start a new game of life. Admitting that he knew the Avengers would challenge him to a game of sporting chance, the Grandmaster summoned his Legion of  Unliving, composed of simulacra of beings then thought to be deceased, and revealed that while the Avengers would attempt to destroy his life-bombs, the Legion of Unliving would attempt to destroy the Avengers. Grandmaster then transported Dr. Druid, both branches of the Avengers and the Legion of Unliving away to compete in his game.

(Avengers I Annual#16/5) - Arriving in an ancient alien civilization alongside Iron Man, Mockingbird and the Black Knight, Dr. Druid was fascinated by the ancient civilization but the squad immediately set out to find the Grandmaster's life-bomb there. Splitting from the group to find the bomb, Dr. Druid thought to himself how he wished he had more time to study the ruins but quickly noticed a swirling patch of mist in front of him that revealed itself as the simulacra of Dracula. Unsure if his will would be stronger than the legendary lord of vampires, Druid quickly realized a physical attack would not work against an intangible foe and was forced into a mental battle against the vampire lord. Unfortunately losing, Dracula commended Druid on resisting him far longer than he had thought possible before slapping the entranced Dr. Druid to the ground.

(Avengers I Annual#16/7) - After Hawkeye tricked the Grandmaster into restoring the Avengers with a rigged game of chance, a somewhat smiling Death restored Dr. Druid and both branches of the Avengers back to life and transported them back to the Houston Astrodome where they had been playing their baseball game.

(Hawkeye IV#6 (fb)) - Known for his knowledge of A/V hookups, Dr. Druid questioned "whither the HDMI?" to Hawkeye, who respected Druid's knowledge on the subject.

(Avengers I#285) -
A week following the Avengers' return from Olympus, Dr. Druid joined Captain Marvel and Namor in discussing the Fixer, one of the Masters of Evil who helped overrun Avengers Mansion a few weeks earlier. During the meeting, Druid asked if there was a point to the update on Fixer and Captain Marvel reminded him that the Avengers should each have a working familiarity with the Avengers' foes and their current statuses. She-Hulk and Black Knight soon arrived and revealed to Druid and the others that Captain America seemed to have gone missing, prompting Captain Marvel to have them check Captain America's hotline and with the Falcon to see if any new word on Captain America's status could be acquired.

(Avengers I#286) - From the communications center of Hydrobase, Dr. Druid projected his astral form into the minds of his fellow Avengers to mentally eavesdrop on their inner-most thoughts. In his astral form, Druid observed Namor and Marrina arguing with Namor's lawyer about past property damage Namor had caused during his attacks on the surface world before switching observation to the Black Knight, who was checking on equipment salvaged from the destroyed Avengers Mansion while pining for the Wasp. A short time later, Dr. Druid received an urgent call in the communications room from a party in Ohio and decided to mobilize the Avengers despite team leader Captain Marvel not being present. Once onboard the Quinjet, Druid refused to tell the other Avengers the nature of the emergency until Captain Marvel flew into the Quinjet. Explaining that he felt Captain Marvel would want the team mobilized as quickly as possible, Dr. Druid began to explain the emergency as Captain Marvel grew suspicious of Druid's intentions. Captain Marvel and Namor flew ahead to investigate, downing a man possessed by and dressed as the criminal Fixer, and when Druid and the others landed the Quinjet, they found Namor defeated by the Awesome Android. Drawing the Awesome Android's attention, Dr. Druid ordered the Black Knight to rescue Captain Marvel, whom the Awesome Android was clutching. The Awesome Android responded by blowing forceful winds from its mouth that blew Druid and the other Avengers around before turning away from the heroes. When the Awesome Android turned back to attack, Dr. Druid telepathically informed She-Hulk of a specific nerve ganglia under the Awesome Android's right armpit, which She-Hulk hit, downing the Android. Dr. Druid then helped up Captain Marvel, claiming it wouldn't be good for team morale to see her off her feet, and Captain Marvel thanked him despite knowing that Druid knew she was more than capable of helping herself up. When She-Hulk kissed Druid on the forehead to thank him for assisting against the Awesome Android, Dr. Druid berated She-Hulk for the emotional display, exclaiming that the team should be acting like warriors not a lonely hearts club.

(Avengers I#287) - As state police arrived, Dr. Druid tended to the man whose body the Fixer had briefly possessed and informed the police that the man's pulse was steady and that he would be fine. Druid then asked the officer to excuse him as he spoke privately with Avengers leader Captain Marvel, whom Druid showed an overprotective concern for. Still suspicious of Druid's intentions, Captain Marvel assured Druid she would be fine and attempted to prove it by transforming into energy despite Druid's suggestion that she was still too weak for such an act. Volunteering to check on the downed Awesome Android himself, Druid and the other Avengers were soon reunited with Namor and his wife Marrina, who revealed that the true Fixer had escaped. As the group discussed the Fixer, Dr. Druid received a mental image of the criminal Mentallo claiming he was being tortured by the Fixer, which he projected for the Avengers to see. Following the projection, Druid asked if She-Hulk still considered Fixer a lightweight before Captain Marvel ordered the Avengers onto their Quinjet. Tracing Mentallo's mental signal, Dr. Druid led the Avengers to a warehouse, where guns soon fired on the Avengers, causing their Quinjet to crash between two buildings. Namor immediately erupted from the Quinjet to fight back and when Dr. Druid and the other Avengers caught up, they were blown away by a wind machine towards a spinning turbine. Briefly separated from Captain Marvel and Namor, Dr. Druid, Black Knight and She-Hulk regrouped and Captain Marvel ordered Dr. Druid to take the team directly to Mentallo. After doing as ordered and leading the Avengers to Mentallo, Dr. Druid helped the tortured Mentallo down from his restraints and warned Black Knight to be easy with Mentallo, as the mental strain on him had been enormous. Druid then watched as Mentallo informed the Avengers that the Fixer's mind appeared huge and alien (Mentallo was unaware the Fixer was actually the android Super-Adaptoid) before passing out. Hours later, after the Avengers returned to Hydrobase to examine the Awesome Android, Dr. Druid took lead in examining the Android as Captain Marvel reluctantly stood to the side. Upon ordering the Black Knight to slowly lower the Awesome Android, not wishing to disturb it more than necessary, Druid noticed that one of the containment units appeared to have been tampered with and he quickly informed the other Avengers, prompting Black Knight to open the unit and reveal a man resembling the Fixer. Druid got to work examining the Fixer, moments later confirming his identity after cross-checking him through the Avengers' files.

(Avengers I#288) - Dr. Druid watched as Mr. Jacobs and a crew moved parts of Avengers Mansion onto Hydrobase, remarking to Mr. Jacobs how Namor, who was helping supervise, was a natural born leader. Druid then commented how it was a pity that they were not filming such a historic moving of one headquarters to another. Overhearing his remark, Captain Marvel reminded Druid that her time as leader had put a lot of things on her mind, least of which was filming the occasion, and asked Druid to stop questioning her every decision. Druid claimed he meant no offense as Black Knight arrived with a Texas newspaper clipping involving the Super-Adaptoid and a group of escaped robots. The trio discussed whether they should track down the Super-Adaptoid and when Captain Marvel commented that the Adaptoid might be leading the Avengers into a cold trail and wondered why the Adaptoid was only interested in recruiting robots, Druid reminded Captain Marvel that the Super-Adaptoid's first victim had been Mentallo, whom he had tortured while posing as the Fixer. Agreeing with the Black Knight that tracking down the Super-Adaptoid was of utmost importance, Druid volunteered to continue supervising the Mansion move while Captain Marvel traveled to Texas to check for the Adaptoid. Captain Marvel shortly returned to find Dr. Druid and the Black Knight in Hydrobase's situation room, where the duo had pulled up several files on the Avengers' robot enemies. When Captain Marvel asked if they thought it was necessary to pull files on destroyed robots, Dr. Druid suggested they not discount any possibility before Black Knight gave a list of the most likely robot candidates the Adaptoid might attempt to recruit. A half-hour later, Dr. Druid joined the other Avengers at a meeting where Captain Marvel split Dr. Druid and Black Knight into a team to investigate TESS-One in Colorado and Namor and She-Hulk to investigate Sentinels in Washington while Marvel herself planned to investigate the destroyed robots. Traveling to Colorado, Dr. Druid and Black Knight were met by military helicopters and they feigned engine trouble in order to land safely. Once on the ground, Dr. Druid hypnotized the military personnel and ordered them to take him and the Black Knight to TESS-One. With the military under his sway, Druid had them load the seeming inert TESS-One onto the Avengers Quinjet and thanked the officers for their cooperation. As they took off, Dr. Druid explained to Black Knight how the military mind was more susceptible to his hypnotic commands, as they were used to taking orders. Black Knight then admitted that Captain Marvel had not ordered them to take TESS-One back to Hydrobase and Druid claimed Captain Marvel lacked foresight in the matter and that she would see they made the right decision. When the Quinjet suddenly lost control, Black Knight suggested Druid inform Captain Marvel that they might be attacked by the Super-Adaptoid but Druid refused, claiming that the Quinjet could have malfunctioned on its own and they need not file a report unless they had evidence of attack. After landing safely, Druid noticed their radar registered three blips and the Super-Adaptoid and his Heavy Metal team attacked them, prompting Druid to levitate himself as the Adaptoid gave chase. Quickly realizing his levitation speed could not match the Adaptoid's jet pack, Druid attempted to use illusions against the Adaptoid, who laughed at the attempt as he easily saw through them. Deciding his only option was to send a mental distress signal to Captain Marvel, Dr. Druid was grappled by the Super-Adaptoid and went limp to concentrate on sending his distress signal. Unfortunately, Captain Marvel left to return to Hydrobase just as Druid's mental signal arrived and she missed the telepathic link. Combining his physical strength with the adapted mental powers of Mentallo, the Super-Adaptoid disabled Dr. Druid then adapted his powers before tossing him onto the ground with Black Knight. The Super-Adaptoid then had Machine Man dispose of the unconscious Avengers as he activated TESS-One.

(Avengers I#289 (fb) - BTS) - Captain Marvel ultimately located Dr. Druid and Black Knight and got them to a hospital.

(Avengers I#289 - BTS) - When the Super-Adaptoid's robot group, dubbed Heavy Metal, attacked Hydrobase using Dr. Druid and Black Knight's Quinjet, She-Hulk rushed out to battle the robots, remarking that it appeared it was not Druid and Black Knight in the Quinjet.

(Avengers I#290 (fb) - BTS) - Dr. Druid and Black Knight checked out of the hospital and began a return trip to Hydrobase in another Quinjet borrowed from the west coast Avengers branch.

(Avengers I#290) - As they approached Hydrobase, Dr. Druid and Black Knight witnessed the Super-Adaptoid replicating thousands of adaptoids to replace humanity. Admitting his regret at seeing such chaos at Hydrobase, Dr. Druid used his mental powers to create the illusion of invisibility around them in hopes of landing safely but two of the adaptoids were unfazed by the illusion and attacked the Quinjet, much to Druid's surprise. When the adaptoids began adapting their powers, Druid and Black Knight realized what they were and Druid ordered Black Knight to use his sword without worry of harming the adaptoids. Succeeding in destroying the Adaptoids, Black Knight barely had time to be commended by Dr. Druid before they were both trapped in transparent cubes by the Super-Adaptoid, who had adapted the Cosmic Cube powers of Kubik. Sent to be with the other captive Avengers, Dr. Druid admitted his trouble at getting his mind off the Super-Adaptoid's replication and revealed that he had probed the Super-Adaptoid's mind, only to find it more vast and complex than any he had ever encountered. Upon learning of the Super-Adaptoid's Cosmic Cube abilities from Captain Marvel, Druid asked about the Cosmic Cube and learned of its reality-warping nature and how the Super-Adaptoid had internalized such power. When the black-suited Captain arrived on the scene, having been summoned by Kubik, Dr. Druid mind-probed him as well, learning that he was actually his former teammate Captain America, and was inspired while watching the Captain battle one of the adaptoids. Deciding to try something different, Dr. Druid levitated his cube over to the Super-Adaptoid and offered to help the Super-Adaptoid, claiming that there would be no harm in listening to Druid's suggestions if the Super-Adaptoid were indeed all-powerful. Explaining to the Super-Adaptoid that it was possible that his mission of replication was due to his programming, Druid asked what the Super-Adaptoid planned to do once he had replicated humanity and when the Super-Adaptoid proclaimed that he would rule, Druid asked what the Super-Adaptoid would have his five billion subjects do. Suggesting that the Super-Adaptoid lacked the imagination to properly rule, Druid bade the Super-Adaptoid to use imagination and the Super-Adaptoid attempted to create a being using his imagination, unaware that Druid's speech was a distraction while the Captain defeated his adaptoid opponent. Proving unable to inspire anything in his new creation, the Super-Adaptoid swatted Dr. Druid aside as Kubik returned to Earth and removed the sliver of Cosmic Cube power from the Super-Adaptoid, effectively ending his menace.

(Thor I#390) - Thor appeared on the grounds of Hydrobase and exclaimed "Avengers Assemble!" to rally Dr. Druid and the other Avengers to his side, where he announced that he had returned from a sojourn in space and was ready to rejoin the Avengers. Admitting it was good to see Thor again, the Captain reminded everyone that Captain Marvel had placed him in charge of cleaning up debris from the Avengers' encounter with the Super-Adaptoid and he ordered Druid and the others to continue in their cleanup efforts as he joined them. Minutes later, Dr. Druid informed the Captain that the superhumanly strong Avengers had collected the debris into one huge pile and asked what they should do with it. Captain Marvel decided to worry about disposal later and suggested they all take a break, prompting She-Hulk to ask Dr. Druid if he could give her a lift to New York. Dr. Druid replied it would be his pleasure.

(Captain America: Hail Hydra#4) - The Captain recruited Dr. Druid as well as several other Avengers and other allies to battle Hydra and their army of zombies. During the battle, Dr. Druid was able to cast a spell that obliterated several of the zombies.

(Damage Control I#1) - After the Avengers defeated a gigantic robot built by the Tinkerer with Spider-Man's assistance, Dr. Druid flew up and announced that his mental powers had uncovered the robot's secret. From his flying vehicle, Dr. Druid informed Spider-Man and the Avengers that the Tinkerer had built the robot for a man named Virgil Starkwell, who planned to use the robot to rob an automobile show. After hearing Dr. Druid's information, the Avengers opted to quickly depart to stop Virgil Starkwell, leaving Spider-Man behind, stuck inside the robot's head.

(Solo Avengers I#4/2) - Dr. Druid walked into the Hydrobase laboratories to find Black Knight surrounded by electronics. Asking what the deuce Black Knight was doing, Druid learned that Black Knight was running tests on his Ebony Blade and agreed analyzation was a good idea. Confessing his own intrigue concerning the Ebony Blade as the only remaining Camelot artifact, Dr. Druid watched as Black Knight displayed the weight of the Ebony Blade by allowing it to cut through a granite block with its sheer weight. Fascinated, Dr. Druid was told of the Ebony Blade's curse, which would slowly start controlling Black Knight were the Blade to taste blood. In an attempt to help Black Knight understand the curse, Dr. Druid made psychic contact with the Ebony Blade itself, only to be possessed by the spirit of Last Knight, one of the original Black Knight's descendant from the alternate future of 2600 A.D. Transformed into a duplicate of Last Knight, Druid fought Black Knight until Black Knight defeated Last Knight, causing Druid to revert to his normal form with his last thoughts being that of picking up a strange vibration from the Ebony Blade. Asking what had happened, Druid was told that Black Knight had received a glimpse of the future and that he had faced his own mortality.

(X-Factor I Annual#3) - When the High Evolutionary's Purifiers prepared to eradicate the underground Moloids, one of the mutant Moloids sent out a telepathic cry for help, which Dr. Druid picked up and recognized as being of incredible power.













(Solo Avengers I#10/2) - In Manhattan, Dr. Druid was preparing to take the subway as his assistant Charles spoke with him about doing a talk show to push his newest book, remarking that occult books didn't sell as well lately. Noticing ancient Celtic runes covering his delayed subway train, Dr. Druid investigated further and realized the runes spelled out a ritual for human sacrifice. When an old man stumbled out of the subway train, not five steps away, Druid attempted to save him, only to watch the man be killed by a woman who warned Druid, as a man of power, to not pit his powers against hers or her disciples. Changing into his costume, Dr. Druid asked Charles to cancel his talk show appearance and when Charles reminded Druid that the appearance could mean his life, Druid reminded Charles that mastering the unknown was his life. Going into the subway tunnels, Dr. Druid generated a glowing orb for light and found the tunnels filled with ugly creatures, one of which pounced on him. Knowing there were too many to fight off, Dr. Druid enlarged his orb and hurled it towards the creatures, the light driving them back as he learned the woman he had seen earlier's name: Stonecutter.
Finding that the creatures had turned the subway tunnels into an ancient Celtic maze in which a passing train triggers a mystic portal to a realm of sacrifice, Dr. Druid levitated rocks to activate the spell and entered the realm himself, disrupting one of Stonecutter's sacrifices with an earth tremor. Stonecutter quickly ordered Druid's death and he fought off a small swarm of Stonecutter's disciples, hypnotizing some of them into fighting others. When Druid's earlier earth tremor caused a subway train to fall through the ceiling, destroying Stonecutter's sacrificial ruins, many of Stonecutter's disciples died and Stonecutter herself aged into a crone. As the aged Stonecutter escaped, Dr. Druid rescued the intended sacrifice from the falling train cars, providing what medical attention he could. When the old man asked why Druid let Stonecutter get away when he was merely an old man, Druid explained how he used to be a doctor and could not permit a fellow traveler to die before his time.

(Avengers I#293 (fb) - BTS) - Kang Nebula of Earth-6311 began secretly seducing Dr. Druid in his dreams, driving his desire to lead the Avengers as part of a continuing plan.








(Avengers I#291/Saga of the Sub-Mariner I#12 (fb)) - Dr. Druid dreamed of a beautiful woman (unaware it was actually Kang Nebula) serving him and, despite knowing that the dream warned of an impending life or death struggle that he must face alone, he desperately wished to return to the dream on a nightly basis. Startled awake by the dream, Dr. Druid felt as if the heart had been cut of him and was still shaking, trying to calm himself, when he noticed She-Hulk outside the window, who greeted and informed Druid that he looked a little pale that morning. After She-Hulk suggested Druid come down and help with some of the debris gathered during the Avengers' cleanup of Hydrobase, Dr. Druid instead went down to the beach, where he thought to himself how his teammates' senses did not detect the foreboding menace in the air as he had but he soon began to think how he had no evidence of any impending doom. Deciding to meditate on the matter, Druid again saw the beautiful woman from his dreams, bidding him to come into her arms. Druid later joined the other Avengers at a New York City Hall gala in an effort to improve their relations with New York City, where Druid spoke with a man who thought the world might be better off without superheroes until he noticed a woman resembling the beautiful woman from his dreams. Rushing his way over to her, Druid soon learned that the woman's face did not match the one from his dreams at all and the surprised woman asked if there was anything she could do for Druid but Druid was quickly drawn away when Avengers provisional member Marrina went on a rampage. Druid and the other Avengers rushed to aid Namor against Marrina as one of the partygoers remarked that trouble might not have happened if Donald Trump had thrown the party. After Captain Marvel proved unable to locate neither Namor nor Marrina, Dr. Druid suggested they return to Hydrobase to plan their next move, a suggestion seconded by Marvel herself. Two weeks later, Captain Marvel spoke with Dr. Druid, admitting her concerns that Namor and Marrina were still missing as ocean attacks had increased, and Dr. Druid suggested increasing the Avengers' patrols in the Atlantic Ocean as the news reported a seemingly Biblical Leviathan in the oceans. Unsure of how to handle the Leviathan situation with everything else going on, Captain Marvel was told by Druid that it couldn't hurt to check out the Leviathan situation to be better safe than sorry. As Captain Marvel flew off to investigate, Dr. Druid thought about how Captain Marvel still seemed to be unsure of herself as leader and more than ever, he felt as if the impending doom from his dreams was coming to pass. He continued thinking how if recent events were the beginning of a global disaster that not even all of Earth's heroes could forestall until Captain Marvel returned and announced that she had found the Leviathan. Druid then watched as Captain Marvel summoned the other Avengers and subsequently accompanied the group to an underlying island near the Bahamas, where the Leviathan was indeed rampaging.

(Avengers I#292) - After the Leviathan was revealed to be a transformed Marrina and Namor refused to allow the Avengers to harm his beloved, many of the flying Avengers returned to Dr. Druid in the Quinjet, who suggested they return to Hydrobase to plan their next course of action. Captain Marvel commended Druid on his suggestion and admitted that if she ever stepped down as Avengers leader, Druid would make a ready candidate. As the Avengers flew back towards Hydrobase, Druid thought to himself how Captain Marvel's imagination in the use of her powers was limited and that her leadership would be no match for the coming danger, soon thinking that the other Avengers would need to be convinced of Captain Marvel's lack of leadership skills. Druid then slipped into a daydream, again seeing the beautiful woman, who served him and tried to convince him that his dream was the true reality, until Thor noticed Druid's Quinjet veering off-course. Awoken from his dream by Thor, Druid's memories of the dream began to fade, and he began to think how Marrina might have to be destroyed to save the planet and how something would have to be done about Captain Marvel soon. Back at Hydrobase, Druid suggested to the other Avengers that Marrina/Leviathan would have to be killed but Captain Marvel vehemently disagreed, remarking that Marrina was an Avenger and they should be trying to help her rather than kill her. When most of the Avengers sided with Captain Marvel and Thor explained how it was Captain Marvel's call as leader, Druid questioned whether Thor also thought not to kill Marrina but instead somehow wish the problem solved and Thor replied by suggesting they contact Dr. Hank Pym for his biochemical assistance. As Pym agreed to help, Druid noticed an emergency alarm with a distress call from the S.S. Gosnold ship, which was under attack by Leviathan. Captain Marvel went to investigate and soon returned to Hydrobase, where Druid and the other Avengers monitored Navy radio reports. When the reports stopped due to static interference, Captain Marvel flew out again to investigate and Druid and the other Avengers were soon heading out towards the Atlantic Ocean. Captain Marvel scouted ahead and returned to order the Avengers to hurry as fast as they could to the Leviathan damage, prompting Druid to remark that Captain Marvel was losing her cool but She-Hulk asked Druid to ease up on Captain Marvel. Upon arriving to see several modern warships destroyed, Druid commented that the leaking oil and subsequent flames were spreading, prompting Black Knight to fly out on his electronic flying steed in an attempt to rescue survivors. After a Navy officer berated Captain Marvel for not informing them that Namor and the Leviathan were married, resulting in confusion as to why Namor tried to prevent their attack on the Leviathan, Dr. Druid spoke with Captain Marvel and mentioned that perhaps the Avengers still had time to save their reputations. Angry that Druid would be concerned about their reputation when men were dead and Leviathan was still a menace, Captain Marvel suggested perhaps the Avengers' priorities needed examining and Druid questioned what would happen when the public saw the Avengers not being able to stop one of their own. She-Hulk came to Captain Marvel's defense, informing Druid that the Avengers would do what had to be done when it had to be done, and Druid grimly stared as She-Hulk, thinking how he would also do what was necessary and that the Avengers had to be convinced that Marrina/Leviathan would have to be killed, no matter her form.

(Avengers I#293 (fb)) - Feeling that he alone had the will to do what was necessary to stop Marrina/Leviathan, Dr. Druid telepathically reached out, using controlled clairvoyance to locate Leviathan and generating an illusion of a tempted ship near the creature, prompting it to attack Atlantis below.

(Avengers I#293/Saga of the Sub-Mariner I#12 (fb)) - Dr. Druid telepathically reached out to Namor following Leviathan's attack on Atlantis, clouding his mind with thoughts that Marrina must be killed and that only the Avengers could succeed in doing the deed. Shortly after implanting the thought in Namor's head, Dr. Druid collapsed from the strain. Upon recovering, Druid thought his course of action was the right one and hoped that the returning Namor would help convince the Avengers to kill Marrina, whom he felt was too dangerous to live. As he ventured to regroup with the other Avengers, Druid thought how Leviathan could be the start to the menace that his dreams had heralded and wondered how he could convince the Avengers of that suspicion as well. Deciding that it was best to keep to his own counsel and to deflect the Avengers from Captain Marvel's perceived "useless endeavors," Druid returned to the Avengers as they were communicating with Hank Pym, who had designed darts equipped with DNA suppressors in an attempt to return Marrina to normal. Druid then remained with the Avengers as Namor arrived and he accompanied the team as they flew out to Marrina/Leviathan's location. As they neared her last location, Dr. Druid reached out with controlled clairvoyance to find Leviathan's specific location and hours later, the Avengers found and succeeded in reverting Marrina to normal. The transformation was short lived, however, and she soon returned to her Leviathan form, forcing the Avengers to renew their attack. When Namor grabbed the Black Knight's Ebony Blade and stabbed Leviathan, inciting the curse from the Ebony Blade that caused Black Knight to fall unconscious, Druid and the other Avengers followed Namor in the Quinjet underwater, where the injured Leviathan fled to guard her eggs. As the Leviathan died, Marrina reverted to her true form and Namor left to lay her to rest as Dr. Druid noticed Captain Marvel appeared to be missing.

(Avengers I#294) - Suffering from the curse of the Ebony Blade, Black Knight had a convulsive fit and Dr. Druid ordered the other Avengers to grab him as Druid lost control of the Avengers Quinjet. As the Avengers fought to restrain Black Knight, Dr. Druid announced that he sensed the presence of evil magic and Black Knight weakly said that Druid's knowledge of the occult served him well. The Avengers then began their search for Captain Marvel, whom Druid was secretly unconcerned about, feeling that if she was dead, it was good riddance since he felt she was too soft to lead the Avengers and her departure could not have been more timely in his favor. When he announced that he had laid in a course, She-Hulk exclaimed to Dr. Druid that they would not leave Captain Marvel behind, but Druid explained that his course was laid for a search pattern, suggesting She-Hulk not let her emotions runaway with her. Claiming he had set the search patterns to track any energy signature, Druid assured She-Hulk that he wished to find Captain Marvel as much as the others. After hours of searching, Druid informed the Avengers that the Quinjet was running low on fuel and She-Hulk resigned herself that the Avengers had done all they could, suggesting they return to Hydrobase. Once back at Hydrobase, Druid announced that he had to retire to replenish his strength and he soon felt he heard a voice calling to him before allowing himself to rest. While dozing, Druid again saw the beautiful woman from his dreams though this time, Kang Nebula appeared in her Kang costume, having not completed the dreamweaving properly. Noticing something different, Dr. Druid was nonetheless convinced it was the same woman he had been dreaming about and he was soon lost in a dream, in which he was a flying hero battling an evil Destructikon. After defeating the Destructikon, Druid returned to the woman and Kang Nebula succeeded in manipulating Dr. Druid into thinking his dreams were a glimpse into the realm of precognition and that he was being granted foreknowledge no one else could see. Manipulated into taking over as leader of the Avengers, Dr. Druid returned to the Avengers to discuss their lack of members and Black Knight's encroaching curse.

(Black Knight I#1 (fb)) - Dr. Druid watched with the other Avengers as Black Knight required an exoskeletal armor just to move, thanks to the Ebony Blade's curse.

(Avengers I#294/Avengers Infinity#1 (fb)) - When Black Knight sensed an intruder in Hydrobase, Dr. Druid followed alongside the other Avengers despite his supernatural senses not sensing anything as a severely weakened Captain Marvel returned in a blinding flash of light, withered to almost nothing.

(Avengers I#294) - Thor quickly got Captain Marvel to a hospital and Dr. Druid and the other Avengers followed after gathering Captain Marvel's parents. After Captain Marvel's parents reunited with their daughter, Dr. Druid suggested the Avengers nominate a new chairman with their membership thus depleted and he asked the Rambeaus to wait outside, much to She-Hulk's annoyance at his disrespect. Druid then quickly nominated himself as chairman and while the other Avengers were unsure, they decided to let the weakened Captain Marvel cast the deciding vote. Driven on by Kang Nebula, Dr. Druid used his mental powers to force Captain Marvel to nominate him and attempted to influence Thor as well but Thor fought off the mental tampering and nominated himself instead. Thor agreed to go with the majority, however, and Druid then used his powers to force She-Hulk to nominate him as well before doing the same to Black Knight, who also suggested Dr. Druid under influence. Despite Thor suspected Druid's involvement, Dr. Druid was given the position of Avengers chairman and Druid welcomed the Rambeaus back into the room and announced that he would do all in his power to make sure the Rambeaus and Captain Marvel could return home to Atlanta as soon as possible. Later, as Captain Marvel and her family returned home, Dr. Druid informed the Avengers that the cosmos reverberated with the approach of unseen foes, still unaware that he himself was being manipulated by Kang Nebula. He also explained that, as the Avengers' new leader, the future was going to be much different than anyone expected.

(Captain America I#343 - BTS) - Falcon phoned Hydrobase and spoke with Dr. Druid, whom he asked to get in touch with Washington, D.C., as he had reason to believe the water had been poisoned there.




(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#2) - Henry Peter Gyrich visited Dr. Druid and the Avengers alongside S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Jack Rollins (secretly an LMD loyal to the Deltite) and informed the group that Nick Fury had become a fugitive from S.H.I.E.L.D. and that the team should contact S.H.I.E.L.D. immediately if Fury tried to contact any one of them. As Rollins continued, he warned that if any of the Avengers did not report such an incident to S.H.I.E.L.D, they would be charged with aiding and abetting an enemy of the United States. Druid then watched as Thor demanded to know what crimes Fury had committed but Rollins explained that it was a national security concern that the Avengers weren't privy and closed the meeting, warning that the Avengers would be watched before announcing his plans to visit the Avengers' west coast branch.

(Web of Spider-Man I#42) - Dr. Druid did a guest lecture at a college, where he spoke about mysticism, and afterwards, Druid was approached by Spider-Man, who admitted that since Dr. Strange wasn't available, he needed Druid's help. Revealing that he was concerned about the supposedly mystical Teacher and his Students of Love cult, Spider-Man suggested the Teacher was faking his mysticism and Dr. Druid confirmed that there was several ways in which the Teacher could fake his "miracles" without alerting skeptics, remarking that Spider-Man was far from a skeptic. Offering to meet the Teacher in order to ascertain immediately whether he was a con artist or a true mystic, Druid was told by Spider-Man that Spider-Man would take care of it himself, as the wall-crawler felt it was his problem to deal with. Spider-Man then thanked Dr. Druid for his assistance.











(X-Factor I#32) - Dr. Druid participated in a public event with the other Avengers and Tony Stark as the mayor of New York City commended the Avengers on donating the original site of the recently destroyed Avengers Mansion to the city. As the press swarmed the Avengers, seeking photos and statements, one of the press officers asked Dr. Druid if ever smiled. Unaware of the alien Xartans in the crowd, the Avengers each shook hands with one of the Xartans, allowing the aliens to obtain the Avengers' genetic templates and transform themselves into duplicates of Druid and the other Avengers.

(Avengers I#295/Avengers Spotlight I#37 (fb)) - Dr. Druid began a meeting with the depleted Avengers roster where he suggested reactivating some of the team's reserve members, unaware that Thor was questioning the validity of Druid being chosen as Avengers leader. During the meeting, Dr. Druid, still under the secret influence of Kang Nebula, became distracted and saw the beautiful woman from his dreams (actually Kang Nebula herself), who showed him a vision in which mechanical dinosaurs were attacking humanity in Washington, and suggested that the Avenger Thor do something about the mechanical plight. Thinking he was having a clairvoyant vision, Dr. Druid took Kang Nebula's advice and ordered Thor to Washington, D.C. to stop the mechanical dinosaurs despite the rest of the team questioning why Druid was sending only Thor. Announcing that his visions proved why he was fit to lead the Avengers, Dr. Druid reminded the team that Thor would be equipped with a micro-transmitter to contact the Avengers should he need assistance. As Thor reluctantly flew off, admitting to himself how he was trusting Dr. Druid's psychic powers less and less, Dr. Druid was summoned to Kang Nebula in astral form and told that Thor presented the greatest threat to Dr. Druid's leadership, as he had not voted for Druid to lead and would not accept a mortal as leader. When Thor summoned the Avengers for assistance, Dr. Druid, completely under Kang Nebula's thrall, used his mental powers to affect She-Hulk's mind and make her dislike Thor enough to leave him without help. She-Hulk soon shrugged off Druid's mental tampering but Dr. Druid telepathically forced her to sit down and discuss the matter despite She-Hulk's attempts to continue fighting his influence. Demanding to know why Dr. Druid was forcing her to stay and using his powers to place a mental block on She-Hulk using her full strength, She-Hulk was informed by Druid that he had been granted a special channeling ability that allowed him to see the future and that the universe was at stake. Thinking Dr. Druid had completely lost all reason, Black Knight tried to sneak past Druid and leave to assist Thor but Druid noticed the Knight and announced that no one would leave Hydrobase without consulting him as Avengers chairman. She-Hulk managed to kick Druid down, costing Druid his concentration and allowing Black Knight to escape to help Thor. Upon seeing Druid's failure to stop Black Knight, Kang Nebula physically appeared in person and berated Druid, asking she could control the Avengers if Druid wasn't up to the task. Realizing she nearly blew her cover in anger, Kang Nebula quickly fell back into character to ensure her manipulations of Dr. Druid, who saw Kang Nebula as his spirit guide, would continue despite She-Hulk pleading with Dr. Druid to see Kang Nebula for what she was. Kang Nebula then kissed Dr. Druid, reminding him that she had promised to come to him in person and with Dr. Druid still under her control, Kang Nebula ordered Druid to go after Black Knight and Thor, quickly teleporting the mystic away. After Black Knight managed to inform Thor of Dr. Druid's evildoings, Dr. Druid returned to Hydrobase and realized Thor would soon be on his way back to Hydrobase. Using psychic visions of the events with Thor and Black Knight, Dr. Druid then managed to affect She-Hulk's mind, turning her against Thor.

(Avengers I#296/Fantastic Four I#341 (fb)) - Further informed of how Dr. Druid had trapped She-Hulk, Thor accompanied Black Knight back to Hydrobase as the mind-controlled Dr. Druid and She-Hulk, as well as Kang Nebula, watched the two Avengers return on CNN. Asking She-Hulk if she could handle Thor, Dr. Druid claimed that Black Knight had misinformed Thor and would need to have his thinking corrected. Feigning defeat by the She-Hulk, Dr. Druid laid on the ground as Black Knight and Thor arrived, sufficiently fooled into thinking She-Hulk had downed Druid. When Black Knight remarked that it was a pity Druid was down, as he had a few choice words to say, Dr. Druid sprung up and announced that there was no time like the present, striking a blow to Black Knight's neck. When Black Knight attempted to strike one blow being hitting the ground, Dr. Druid announced that the mental power would need to be increased and he downed Black Knight before ordering She-Hulk to quit wasting time and take out Thor. After she did as ordered, Druid explained that one mind-controlling Mindbender device would not be enough to break Thor's spirit but three should suffice and when Thor awoke, he would be a true Avenger at last: completely obedient. Once Druid had all of the Avengers under his thrall, Kang Nebula informed them all about the Council of Kangs and their Time-Bubble weapon that she hoped to acquire. All serving Kang Nebula, Druid and the other Avengers prepared to travel through time to acquire the Time-Bubble for Kang Nebula with Dr. Druid showing off his levitation powers by telekinetically bringing the Locus Generator device from Thor to the Quinjet that Black Knight was retrofitting for time travel. Druid then gloated at how the measure of a man was his mind and how his had been trained to perfection, unaware Thor sought to strike against Druid, thinking he was being shamed in front of Kang Nebula. Once the Quinjet had been completed, Druid piloted the Quinjet as the Avengers and Kang Nebula departed into the timestream, where they soon located the Time-Bubble.

(Avengers I#297/Fantastic Four I#337 (fb)/Avengers Spotlight I#37 (fb)) - Dr. Druid and the other mentally enslaved Avengers ventured near the Time-Bubble, where Druid noted several thousand Quinjet counterparts, all venturing at the same time. When the time flux caused the Avengers to be unable to touch down on any substantial land, Kang Nebula thought perhaps the number of Avengers was incorrect with how time should play out events and immediately ordered Dr. Druid to nominate her for Avengers membership. Commending Kang Nebula on her suggestion, Dr. Druid was also ordered to mentally scan each Avengers' potential futures as she ordered them to agree to her nomination so that she could learn who would survive the encounter with the Time-Bubble. As each Avenger did as ordered and nominated Kang Nebula, Dr. Druid confirmed that Thor existed in the future, She-Hulk possibly did (he was only able to tell of a woman, not specifically She-Hulk) and that Black Knight had no future history. Dr. Druid then watched as Kang Nebula considered Black Knight dead weight and ordered Black Knight to jump overboard. When Black Knight's Ebony Blade curse limited his movement, Kang Nebula ordered She-Hulk to jettison Black Knight and Dr. Druid opened the Quinjet hatch to allow She-Hulk to throw Black Knight out of the ship. Unaware of several of the Council of Kangs' interference, Dr. Druid soon witnessed Thor overcome the Mindbender device and attack Kang Nebula. She-Hulk soon joined in the attack after one of the Kangs disabled her Mindbender, followed by Black Knight's, forcing Dr. Druid to intervene against Thor. Unfortunately for Druid, She-Hulk downed Druid almost immediately with one blow and when he began to come to, the still-entranced Dr. Druid witnessed Kang Nebula falling into an aperture in time. Dr. Druid leapt in after his "beloved" and the two disappeared almost immediately. When the other Avengers subsequently returned to Hydrobase, the similarly mind-controlled Edwin Jarvis asked where Dr. Druid was and he was informed that Druid would not be returning as Thor removed a Mindbender device from Jarvis.

(Fantastic Four I#341 (fb)) - Trapped on the perimeter of the Time-Bubble, Dr. Druid and Kang Nebula were transformed into temporal phantoms floating harmlessly through the timestream.

(Doctor Strange: Sorcerer Supreme I#2 - BTS) - While trapped in the body of rat, Dr. Stephen Strange thought about others that he could reach out to for help, including Dr. Druid among others.

(Avengers West Coast I Annual#4/2 - BTS) - She-Hulk and Janet Van Dyne played a bachelorette party game together, which they called "Rate the Hunks," in which they displayed archival footage of various male Avengers and gave them a numerical rating. When footage of Dr. Druid came up, Janet remarked that Dr. Druid was the worst Avenger ever and that there wasn't one thing about him that she liked except that he used his cloak to cover up his pot belly. After Janet rated Dr. Druid a "1," She-Hulk followed up that Druid was number one on her "hate parade" as well, claiming that Druid's Bostonian accent was shoddy at best and that his goatee was gross. Plugging her nose, She-Hulk commented that she hoped Dr. Druid stayed lost in the time warp and asked for the next footage to be displayed.

(Fantastic Four I#338) - Still floating within the timestream near the Time-Bubble, the still-entranced Dr. Druid and Kang Nebula witnessed the Fantastic Four (as well as Thor and Iron Man) travel past them in the Time Sled vehicle. Kang Nebula ordered Dr. Druid to move them using the powers of his mind but the sniveling Druid asked if that meant she would leave him, remarking that he couldn't bear to traverse the timestream alone without her. Claiming that once she had accomplished what had to be done, Kang Nebula told Druid that they would escape the timestream together and he would sit by her side in glory, convincing the enthralled Druid to send Kang Nebula forward.

(Fantastic Four I#341 (fb) - BTS) - Thanks to Dr. Druid's mental push, Kang Nebula was able to enthrall the mind of the Fantastic Four's Human Torch.

(Avengers Spotlight I#37 (fb) - BTS) - When the Time-Bubble was destroyed when Galactus used the Ultimate Nullifier on himself, the desperate Dr. Druid and Kang Nebula used Druid's powers to mentally weave their minds into an idyllic safe haven where their minds adapted by rendering them both amnesiac.

(Avengers Spotlight I#37) - Druid soon began to constantly suffered waking dreams of his true memories. Dr. Druid suggested he merge minds with the equally amnesiac Kang Nebula and once they did so, Dr. Druid learned the truth of how Kang Nebula had manipulated him by claiming to be his spirit guide. After realizing how he had been manipulated and he had fallen for it completely, Dr. Druid claimed that he had earlier leaped after Kang Nebula into the timestream on impulse because he still loved her and soon realized that the idyllic existence they seemingly lived in was nothing more than an illusion of the mind and the illusion faded, revealing Druid and Kang Nebula to still be floating in the timestream. Witnessing the actuality of the Time-Bubble itself, the intrigued Dr. Druid opted to travel to the center of the Time-Bubble to learn the secrets within but Kang Nebula quickly attacked him, claiming that the Celestial weapon inside would be hers alone. When Druid followed, warning Kang Nebula to be careful within the center, Kang Nebula blasted him aside, having absorbed the power of Anti-Time and warning that if he interfered with her again, he would not even be a memory. Admitting that he had genuinely loved Kang Nebula, Dr. Druid was soon enveloped by Kang Nebula's newfound power from the Time-Bubble and they were both transported to Lincoln, Nebraska circa 1961, where Kang Nebula hoped to find no superheroes to stand in her way of conquering the planet. Despite his feelings for her, Dr. Druid quickly realized Kang Nebula was tampering with forces beyond her understanding and attempted to stop her, telepathically reaching out to the Avengers, only to find none present in 1961. Realizing he had arrived on Earth two years prior to the Kennedy assassination, Druid accidentally terrified a young boy before Kang Nebula, growing bored with Druid, tried to transport Dr. Druid to another time period. His transportation was intercepted, however, by 1961's mystic Ancient One and Druid was deposited in 1961 Tibet. Recognizing the temple of the lama that he had met decades ago, Dr. Druid again went through the trials he had once participated to save the lama, only to learn this second time that the lama had originally summoned Druid to the temple to become the lama's disciple. Informing Dr. Druid that he had been given some of the lama's power and that his "death" that Druid had witnessed in the past had merely been the change of one form to another, the lama revealed himself as the mystic Ancient One and that Druid had been a temporary champion until the Ancient One's true successor, Dr. Stephen Strange, arrived. At first somewhat angry that he had been used for decades, Dr. Druid discovered that the Ancient One sought forgiveness and Druid granted the Ancient One the forgiveness he sought, laughing that it wasn't every day a person was chosen to act as point man for Earth's sorcerer supreme. As the Ancient One reminded Dr. Druid of Kang Nebula and apologized for mystically bringing Druid there, Druid apologized himself, realizing he had been selfish and egotistical of late with the Ancient One's teachings. Returned to Lincoln, Nebraska, the newly-humbled Dr. Druid viewed Kang Nebula's rampage from afar and decided to stop Nebula using Celtic artifacts he hoped to find in the local museum. Using a vase designed with an image of the Celtic three-headed god, Dr. Druid performed a mystic ceremony within a pentagram, calling forth the power of the three Celtic mother goddesses of war, Morrigan, Machia and Bade. Empowered by the goddesses, Dr. Druid was able to summon forth two alternate versions of himself, one in which he received the Ancient One's power in his youth, and an aged future counterpart of himself. Using the power of three Druids, Dr. Druid banished Kang Nebula into the timestream, effectively transporting himself to the present in the process. Finding himself appearing a few years younger, Dr. Druid flew off, thinking perhaps he was now a better man than he once was, thinking perhaps this time around, he might even keep his hair.

(She-Hulk III#12 (fb) - BTS) - Dr. Druid was approached alongside supervillains Shocker and Vibro by the enigmatic Nighteater to assist with a spell to transform Nighteater into a renowned hero.

(She-Hulk III#12 (fb)) - Reluctantly agreeing to work for Nighteater, Dr. Druid traveled to North Dakota and cast a spell that worked with the fabric of reality itself, a spell powered by the vibrational abilities of supervillains Shocker and Vibro. When Shocker whined and asked how long they had to hold their constant vibrational projection, Dr. Druid reminded them how delicate the spell he was casting was and how dependent on Shocker and Vibro's vibrational powers he was to keep the spell working. Ordering the two villains to keep firing at full power or risk instantly perishing, Dr. Druid announced to Nighteater that they had done as they were hired to and informed Nighteater that the spell only needed mental energy for further fuel. Nighteater assured Druid that he would have his fuel but warned that if Druid allowed the spell to fail, he would slash his soul to ribbons. Druid only responded by asking Nighteater to hurry, as new energies in the North Dakota town threatened to make the situation more dire. Announcing that heroes had arrived to stop the spell, Druid kept the spell going while Nighteater attempted to deal with the heroes. With Druid's spell in place, Nighteater locally altered reality to transform himself into the heroic Nightwatch. When the warp was over, the heroes immediately recognized Nightwatch as a hero and asked where the villains were, prompting Nightwatch to point out Shocker, Vibro and Dr. Druid. Unsure of what was going on due to the reality warp, Shocker told the equally addled Dr. Druid and Vibro that they were in trouble with Nightwatch there. Nightwatch quickly enveloped Dr. Druid, Shocker and Vibro in his cape and suggested the other heroes help take down the trio, much to Dr. Druid's surprise.

(Quasar I#23) - When Maelstrom used his control over kinetic energy to halt the Earth's rotation, Dr. Druid was one of the many beings who sensed the rotation grinding to a halt.

(Quasar I#24) - After sorcerer supreme Dr. Strange summoned the Earth mother Gaea in an effort to solve the problem of Earth's rotation, Gaea suggested Strange combine his mystic might with other mystics and Strange soon summoned the astral forms of Dr. Druid and many other mystics, who combined their power with Dr. Strange's.

(Quasar I#25) - Dr. Druid's astral form, as well as the astral forms of other sorcerers such as Talisman, Shaman, Aquarian, Roma and Earth-712's Moonglow, continued to lend their power to Dr. Strange and together, the cast spell prevented the halting of Earth's rotation from ravaging the planet with natural disasters. When Maelstrom's minion Deathurge attacked Dr. Strange, disrupting the spell, Dr. Druid and the other sorcerers sensed something wrong. Remaining connected to the spell as Earth-712's Moonglow sent the Squadron Supreme to assist Dr. Strange, Dr. Druid stayed calm as Dr. Strange held the spell in place at the risk of his own health as the fate of Earth was decided by a battle between Maelstrom and the protector of the universe, Quasar.

(Quasar I#28 (fb)) - As Her traversed Earth seeking the perfect mate, Dr. Druid was one of many superhuman men that she passed over due to his magic-based powers lying outside of the electromagnetic spectrum.

(Doctor Strange: Sorcerer Supreme I#33 (fb) - BTS) - While sent into the past by an Infinity Gauntlet-wielding Thanos, Dr. Strange psychically transferred a portion of his power to Dr. Druid in an effort to anchor himself and Clea to the present day.

(Doctor Strange: Sorcerer Supreme I#33) - As Dr. Strange and Clea returned to the present, where their ally Pip the Troll was waiting, Clea asked which sorcerer Strange was able to utilize to anchor them to their proper time and Dr. Druid, who had just walked into Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum, announced his arrival and how he was the only man capable of acting as an anchor due to his recently-revealed status as the "test prototype" for Dr. Strange. Explaining how he had been chosen to harness a fraction of the Ancient One's power while the Ancient One awaited the arrival of Dr. Strange years earlier, Dr. Druid joked that if the revelation surprised Clea, she could imagine how the revelation had shocked Dr. Druid's own "fragile ego." Remarking that Dr. Druid had adjusted to the role very well, Dr. Strange thanked Dr. Druid for answering his psychic summons and acting as the magical link-up to pull Dr. Strange and Clea back to the present day. Druid replied that he should be thanking Dr. Strange for providing him a chance to make up for his past misdeeds like mesmerizing the Avengers but Pip interrupted, asking Dr. Strange what he planned to do about Thanos. As Druid, Clea and Pip watched, Dr. Strange admitted he had no idea then began to meditate.

(Doctor Strange: Sorcerer Supreme I#34) - Dr. Druid joined with Clea and Dr. Strange for a summoning spell as Pip the Troll watched. Moments after Dr. Strange's apprentice Rintrah arrived, Dr. Druid and the other sorcerers succeeded in summoning Scarlet Witch immediately from her near-death at the hands of Thanos to Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum. After Scarlet Witch appeared in the Sanctum, Strange commended Druid and Clea for their assistance but a modest Dr. Druid admitted they had provided only an extra bit of mystic ballast. When Scarlet Witch recalled dying at the hands of Thanos, Dr. Druid confirmed that it was exactly what had happened as far as Thanos knew. Strange then followed up, admitting that it had taken awhile to reconstitute Scarlet Witch there and Dr. Druid further explained that while his own powers were mostly ritualistic, his status as Dr. Strange's temporary precursor allowed him to add to Dr. Strange's powers, increasing them enough to summon Scarlet Witch. As Dr. Druid watched, Dr. Strange explained that he had been instructed by Adam Warlock to gather as much of Earth's defeated heroes as possible and revealed the glass shards that were once Thor and the charred husk of armor that was once Dr. Doom. Further revealing that Dr. Doom was somehow still alive and that answers to how needed to be sought on Earth, Dr. Strange informed Scarlet Witch that he and Dr. Druid would search for answers to Doom's plight while Scarlet Witch and Clea pored over the glass shards that were once Thor. Dr. Strange and Dr. Druid then flew off, with Dr. Doom in tow, and along their travels, Druid remarked on the cold, asking Strange if he truly believed the Earth was headed for a new Ice Age. Strange replied that it would be if Thanos wasn't stopped and Druid continued conversing, asking why Strange decided not to include Clea on their mission since Strange had previously forced her to sleep during his previous mission. Strange then revealed that Strange, Druid and Doom all had something in common that Clea did not and a surprised Druid asked what before further asking where they were going exactly. The group then stopped in Tibet, where Strange explained that all three doctors had found their destinies. Somewhat surprised, Dr. Druid asked if Doom's origin story was bound up with Druid and Strange's and after they both related how their two origins connected, Strange brought Druid and the inert Doom past the Ancient One's lamastery, which Strange and Druid both saw differently as the ones they had both encountered years ago. Not stopping, Strange explained that they were taking Doom to the scene of his origin as opposed to their own and Druid remarked that he had no complaints and was willing to completely trust Dr. Strange as his way of atoning for his past misdeeds with the Avengers, which Strange said Druid had made up for when he saved Earth from the machinations of Kang Nebula. Admitting he had loved Kang Nebula, Druid commented that at least in stopping Nebula, he had turned time back on himself and was made younger, complete with restored hair, which Druid considered the Multiverse's way of giving him a second chance that he intended to make the best of. Druid and Strange then touched down among the group of monks who had once served Dr. Doom, where Dr. Druid levitated Doom's inert form for the monks as they ventured inside the monks' cave dwelling. Somewhat sarcastically asking Dr. Strange if Dr. Doom were not another "test run" for Strange's role as sorcerer supreme, as Druid himself had been, Druid was assured by Strange that Doom was not and a smirking Druid followed up by asking if Strange was sure he had not been a "test run" for Doom, prompting only silence from Strange. Once inside, Druid and Strange found that the monks were planning to subject the inert Doom to the fires that forged his armor in an effort to cancel Thanos' magical effects on Doom. Druid asked if Strange was sure the idea would work and Strange replied that he wasn't sure but if anything could restore Doom, the fires would. As the monks prepared Doom for the fires, Druid heard gunshots outside and Druid and Strange investigated outside to find Chinese soldiers had shot one of the monks welcoming him. Strange warned the soldiers to depart and when they shot at the two mystics, Dr. Druid thanked Strange for erecting a mystic shield, as he was too far away to hypnotize the soldiers. Strange then halted the soldiers with the Rings of Raggador and when Druid and Strange returned to the cave, they found that Doom's shadow-self had emerged from his physical body. The good opposite of the evil Dr. Doom, Doom's shadow-self refused to allow the evil Doom to be restored and swatted aside Dr. Druid, claiming that only sorcerer supreme Dr. Strange posed any real threat to him. While Strange battled Dr. Doom's shadow-self, Druid, determined to help in some way, carved Celtic runes on the floor of the cave and summoned help from the three Celtic goddesses Morrigan, Macha and Badb for protection. When Dr. Strange was injured by Doom's shadow-self, Druid bid Dr. Strange to enter his protective circle, explaining that it would take an immense expenditure of power for Doom's shadow-self to penetrate Druid's unseen mystic shield. Unsure whether they would survive the next attack, Dr. Druid was surprised when the true Doom appeared and at first, wondered if perhaps he and Strange were on the wrong side of the fight but Strange assured Druid that their fight was with Doom's shadow-self. Agreeing to defer to Strange as the true mystic, Dr. Druid gathered together the power granted by the three goddesses and participated in a mystic attack combined with Strange and Doom against Doom's shadow-self, returning it to Doom's body where it belonged. When Strange suggested that Dr. Doom was a mix of both good and bad, and Doom responded by raising his hand as if to fire on the sorcerer, Druid attempted to warn Strange but Doom quickly lowered his hand, admitting that he had lost control of ego when battling Thanos and agreeing to act at Dr. Strange's disposal in the coming battle against Thanos. As Dr. Strange and Dr. Druid departed, Druid asked if Strange was sure that was the real Dr. Doom, as he was acting weak and compliant, and Dr. Strange replied that it was the real Dr. Doom. Druid followed up by questioning whether Dr. Doom would revert to his old ways during a potential rematch with Thanos and Strange admitted that one couldn't be certain, only hope for the best.

(Doctor Strange: Sorcerer Supreme I#35) - Dr. Druid joined Dr. Strange to a location between dimensions, where Strange was able to summon the Hulk, who had been shrunk down in size by the Infinity Gauntlet-wielding Thanos. When Dr. Druid mentioned that the situation with Thanos was now even worse, Dr. Strange reintroduced the then-intelligent Hulk to then-younger Dr. Druid before explaining that Strange was tasked with rescuing the heroes to await a later retrieval. Departing the Hulk to continue his mission, Dr. Strange said goodbye and Dr. Druid replied that it was nice meeting the Hulk before they left Hulk between dimensions, annoyingly awaiting being called back. As they left, Druid admitted that the Hulk was not someone he would want angry at him but Dr. Strange replied that the Hulk had no choice but to sit tight, as there was no way for the Hulk to leave the dimensional crossroads unless summoned. Druid and Dr. Strange then returned to the Sanctum Sanctorum, where Dr. Strange ignored his apprentice Rintrah's greetings to focus on reconstituting the shards of Thor. Pip the Troll noticed the ignoring of Rintrah and whispered to Dr. Druid how Rintrah seemed hurt by the slight but Dr. Druid quietly reminded Pip that Dr. Strange had a lot on his mind. When Dr. Strange determined that they needed to take Thor's shards to Muspelheim and Niflheim, Dr. Druid readied himself but Strange suggested the tired Dr. Druid get some rest and that Clea and Scarlet Witch could accompany him this time.

(Doctor Strange: Sorcerer Supreme I#36) - Following Thanos' defeat, Dr. Druid and many other friends and allies of Dr. Strange participated in a toast to celebrate Dr. Strange's role in assisting against Thanos. When Dr. Strange kissed Clea while levitating, Topaz remarked on the rare occurance, prompting Dr. Druid to joke that here he had been hanging around Stonehenge. Strange then admitted he was glad Dr. Druid and Scarlet Witch could make the party and Druid shared the sentiment but admitted that he would soon need to leave for a research project in Wales. Strange replied by asking Druid to give his regards to Professor Iowerth at the University of Swansea and Druid commented that he would look Prof. Iowerth up.


(Doctor Strange: Sorcerer Supreme I#46 (fb) - BTS) - Dr. Strange gave Dr. Druid a spare key to his Sanctum Sanctorum.

(Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Master Edition I#19 - Avengers Roster entry - BTS) - Having become an ally of Dr. Strange, Dr. Druid sought to reconcile with the Avengers.

(Captain America I#402) - While investigating his missing pilot John Jameson, who had once had a problem with transforming into a wolf-man, Captain America at first thought to reach out to Dr. Strange but when Dr. Strange proved unavailable, Cap decided to visit Dr. Druid in Boston, Massachusetts. Noting that Dr. Druid had not parted terms with the Avengers on a good note, Captain America hoped he could patch things up in person while seeking his knowledge on the occult with the werewolf case. Arriving at Dr. Druid's townhouse, Captain America found that the door swung open of its own accord and, upon seeing all of the artifacts within the townhouse, Cap knew he had the right place as Dr. Druid announced that he was upstairs. Surprised to see Captain America, the levitating Dr. Druid promised to be with Cap in a moment and Captain America remarked that Druid looked different. Explaining that he had been given a new lease on life, Dr. Druid ended his psychokinesis exercise and asked what he could do for Cap, who revealed that he was looking for his pilot and feared the supernatural might be involved. Asking for a photo, Dr. Druid proved unable to get a strong psychic impression from the photo and asked if Cap had anything John Jameson had worn or handled and Captain America replied in the negative, noting that he had not even told Druid Jameson's name. When Captain America further explained that Jameson had once been transformed into a werewolf, Druid noted the recent werewolf-style killings north of Boston and offered to investigate the killings alongside Captain America. Pulling his cloak to his neck, Dr. Druid then accompanied Captain America up north, admitting that he had been hoping to patch things up with the Avengers along the way. Dr. Druid quickly had Captain America land his Avengers craft in the nearby woods, where Dr. Druid sensed a recent attack from a beast-man, pointing out the dried blood to Captain America before a werewolf attacked them both. Scratched by the werewolf, Druid attempted to staunch the blood flow while Captain America fought off the werewolf until Moonhunter arrived and wrangled the werewolf.

(Captain America I#403) - When Moonhunter flew off with the werewolf, Captain America checked on Dr. Druid, who was in a near-trance. Druid whispered that he had stopped the bleeding and was almost over the pain. Assuring Cap he was okay, Dr. Druid told Captain America to pursue Moonhunter. After Moonhunter caused Captain America to crash his craft, Cap decided to return and check on Dr. Druid, whom Cap found laying on the forest floor. Awakening from a sleep, Druid revealed that he had done everything he could for the wolf wounds and had decided to rest until Captain America returned. Asking Cap about an explosion he had heard, Druid learned that Captain America's aircraft had exploded and after Cap decided not to involve the Avengers, Druid remarked that there would be no need since he was now able to track the werewolf after touching it. Two hours later, Dr. Druid and Captain America had hiked their way to Starkesboro, where Druid proclaimed the werewolf to be nearby. After again assuring Captain America his wound was fine, Dr. Druid suggested they continue their search before the daybreak sun transformed the werewolf back into a human. Upon venturing into Starkesboro, Druid began sensing something unusual about the town as if it were a hotbed of arcane activity and the two heroes were soon surrounded by werewolves, at which Druid admitted his wishes that Captain America had convinced him to rest.

(Captain America I#404) - As ready as they would ever be, Captain America and Dr. Druid were attacked by the werewolves and Dr. Druid levitated himself into the air. Once high enough to be out of the werewolves' grasp, Dr. Druid mesmerized several of them to fight the others and spread the mesmerism among their pack. Druid then rested on a nearby rooftop and then used his mental powers to cloak Captain America from the werewolves' vision before telekinetically lifting Cap onto the rooftop as well. The duo then watched as the werewolves went further into the seemingly abandoned town, where Captain America deduced their base must be. Druid then offered to do what he could to keep them invisible as they tracked the werewolves but when Moonhunter arrived on the scene with a werewolf Dougie, who had led Moonhunter to the location where he lost Captain America's scent, Dr. Druid cast an illusion of a firework to distract Moonhunter while Druid assured they were invisible to Moonhunter as well. As daybreak came, Dr. Druid and Captain America further investigated Starkesboro, noting several people that were likely werewolves the night before running around, unable to see the two heroes. Explaining that while he sensed magic at work in the town, Druid sensed something else responsible for the werewolves' transformations and the two soon ventured to the Starkesboro mayor's home, where the villainess Nightshade unleashed a brainwashed Wolverine against the duo. During the scuffle between Captain America and Wolverine, Dr. Druid disappeared, leaving Cap to wonder what had happened to him.

(Captain America I#405) - Having ventured further into the town during the distraction Captain America provided battling Wolverine, Dr. Druid assumed Captain America could he handle himself while he searched for the hidden power within Starkesboro. Starting with the church, which he noticed had replaced its Christian artifacts with Druidic ones, Dr. Druid entered the church's study and found its occult artifacts rivaled his own. Investigating the Moongem artifact, Druid was noticed by the villain Dredmund Druid and the two fought a battle of mesmerism, unaware Captain America had been transformed into a werewolf and was running wild in the town. Soon realizing that despite his mental prowess, Dredmund Druid was resisting his mesmerism, Dr. Druid suspected an outside agent and sought to destroy the nearby Moongem. When Dr. Druid attempted to levitate a wolfhead artifact, Dredmund Druid found an area of Dr. Druid's mind not focused on resisting and managed to down Dr. Druid.

(Captain America I#406/Captain America I#407 (fb)) - While chaining up Dr. Druid, whom Dredmund Druid placed a metal facemask on, Dredmund announced that Dr. Druid was no longer be the master of Druidism and remarked how fortunate it was that Dr. Druid had come to him, as Dredmund had planned to attack Dr. Druid following his business in Starkesboro. Dredmund then cut off Dr. Druid's ponytail and explained that the next time Dredmund unsheathed the knife, it would be to slice Dr. Druid's throat. Later, after being berated for their failures by Dredmund Druid, Moonhunter and Nightshade walked past the captive Dr. Druid before encountering the werewolf Captain America, who had regained his mind but not form. That evening, Dredmund Druid prepared to sacrifice Dr. Druid in front of his werewolf followers but "Capwolf" busted in. While Dredmund's werewolves battled Capwolf, Dredmund managed to slit Dr. Druid's throat, dousing the Moongem into Dr. Druid's blood before donning it to become a godlike werewolf.

(Captain America I#407) - Dubbing himself Starwolf, Dredmund Druid knocked Capwolf into the motionless and still chained Dr. Druid, whom Capwolf freed from the chains. Noticing that Dr. Druid wasn't bleeding, Capwolf wondered if Dr. Druid had bled to death or if Dr. Druid was somehow holding his blood inside his body. While focused on Capwolf, Dredmund missed the werewolf John Jameson get the lifeless Dr. Druid to Nightshade's lab, where he transformed Nightshade into a werewolf to force her to find a cure for the werewolves' condition. As Jameson stood over Nightshade, Moonhunter and a freed Wolverine arrived and ordered Jameson to put down the needle, at which point Dr. Druid sprang to life and used his mental powers to restore Wolverine and Moonhunter to their right minds. Moonhunter and Wolverine then reunited with Captain America against Starwolf, explaining how Dr. Druid had restored them but remained behind to heal his slit throat.

(Captain America I#408) - Dr. Druid watched as Nightshade attempted her cure on John Jameson and Capwolf brought the unconscious Dredmund Druid into Nightshade's lab. Revealing to Capwolf that he had sealed his throat wound by sheer force of will, Dr. Druid asked what had happened to Dredmund Druid and upon learning that Dredmund's throat had been slit, Dr. Druid informed Capwolf that he would see to Dredmund's medical needs. Dr. Druid then tended to Dredmund as a Captain America doppelganger entered the room in an attempt on the true Captain America's life. Dr. Druid then watched as Capwolf transformed back into human form and took down his doppelganger, spilling Nightshade's werewolf antidote. Three hours later, after Nightshade was forced to create more antidote to restore the Starkesboro townspeople to normal, Dr. Druid hypnotically shielded Wolfsbane and Jack Russell, the Werewolf, from the Vault Guardsmen as Nightshade was arrested. Dr. Druid and Captain America then saw to the restored townspeople until Moonhunter arrived in his flying motorcycle and offered the two heroes a ride back.

(Infinity War I#3/Wonder Man II#13) - During a crisis involving the evil Adam Warlock counterpart, Magus, Scarlet Witch brought Dr. Druid and her mentor Agatha Harkness into a group of superheroes who working on the situation. Wonder Man immediately recognized the younger-looking Dr. Druid and asked Scarlet Witch if he could be trusted but Scarlet Witch vouched for Druid and assured all heroes present that Dr. Druid was a radically changed man, reminding them that they needed his unique talents.














(Fantastic Four I#368) - Despite Scarlet Witch vouching for Druid, Wonder Man whispered to Druid that he might have conned Scarlet Witch into vouching for Druid but Wonder Man refused to trust Druid after his past betrayal of the Avengers. Dr. Druid replied by insisting that he was a changed man before loud noises from another room in which some of the heroes were playing foosball drew Druid and the others' concern.

(Infinity War I#3/Fantastic Four I#368/Quasar I#38/Warlock & the Infinity Watch I#8) - Scarlet Witch then explained that it would take all four mystics present (Dr. Druid, Agatha Harkness, Shaman and herself) to find the source of the unusual radiation involved with the Magus crisis. Quasar later returned to Earth to inform Captain America that he had learned nothing that would help the heroes as Dr. Druid and the other sorcerers sat in a mystic circle, preparing to teleport a squad of heroes into battle. Dr. Druid pricked him finger and dripped a drop of blood into the spell and the sorcerers then teleported a large squad of heroes away, as well as themselves. Traveling through space with the mystics and assembled heroes, Dr. Druid arrived to confront Adam Warlock and the mad Titan Thanos, whom the heroes mistakenly thought was behind recent attacks.








(Alpha Flight I#111) - Dr. Druid stood among the assembled mystics as Alpha Flight's Guardian looked over to find Shaman not with them.

(Wonder Man II#14) - As the heroes continued battling Thanos and Adam Warlock's Infinity Watch, Wonder Man glanced over at the mystics to check on Scarlet Witch, who was still alongside Dr. Druid as the mystics kept the portal to Earth open for the heroes.

(Infinity War I#4) - After Thanos and the Infinity Watch ultimately sided with the heroes against the Magus, who captured Adam Warlock, Dr. Druid and Dr. Strange were ordered by Captain America to depart to their Earth's normal dimension to help the populace overcome Magus' conquest.

(Doctor Strange: Sorcerer Supreme I#46) - Dr. Druid accompanied Scarlet Witch, Dr. Strange, Agatha Harkness and Shaman back to Earth's dimension, where they found Earth's population completely entranced and frozen where they stood. Noticing a woman mere seconds from being hit by a car, Dr. Druid proved unable to affect the woman with any sort of Celtic magic, as he needed a series of three to have any effect. Shaman joined in, trying to animate the woman with his Spirits of Life, and Scarlet Witch asked Agatha Harkness to act as a third but Agatha soon learned the woman's mind was frozen as much as her body was. Druid then suggested Dr. Strange attempt to revive the woman, figuring that if the Sorcerer Supreme could not affect her, nothing would. When Dr. Strange stopped, noticing two moons in the sky, and Agatha Harkness confirmed that there were also two Earths, Dr. Druid nonetheless announced his plans to continue helping the woman until the Mindscape dimension's Sleepwalker appeared. A brief fight ensued until Dr. Strange used the Eye of Agamotto to determine Sleepwalker to be an ally, convincing both Scarlet Witch and Dr. Druid. When Dr. Strange saw a frozen Wong and Imei, he admitted he now understand Dr. Druid's desire to continuing helping the frozen woman they had seen. Assuring Dr. Strange that Rintrah and Clea were likely fine, Dr. Druid used his spare key to the Sanctum Sanctorum to open the door, accidentally unleashing a slew of demons inside. Knocked aside, Druid was ordered to his feet by the Scarlet Witch, who used her own magic to protect him as the mystics fought the swarming demons. Dr. Druid was soon shocked when a duplicate Dr. Strange appeared from the Sanctum Sanctorum's door. Thinking the duplicate one of the Magus' doppelgangers, Druid and the mystics fought back against the duplicate Strange's demons, soon realizing they couldn't keep up the fighting forever. Dr. Druid and the other mystics were soon downed by the duplicate's demon swarm and the duplicate claimed Dr. Strange as his own prize.

(Doctor Strange: Sorcerer Supreme I#47/Infinity War I#6) - Dr. Druid and the other mystics were placed in mystic bindings and forced to sit at a table while the deranged duplicate Dr. Strange held the true Dr. Strange in chains. When the duplicate noticed Scarlet Witch lost in thought, he berated her and accused her of being more mutant than mage, prompting Dr. Druid to request the duplicate release them and see who was a mage. After hearing the duplicate's Counter-Earth origins, Dr. Druid and the other mystics questioned why the duplicate chose to attack normal Earth's Dr. Strange, soon learning that while the duplicate was not created by the Magus, he was in the Magus' employment. Before the duplicate could kill Dr. Strange with the Vapors of Valtorr, Dr. Strange added the duplicate's power to his own and transported Dr. Druid, himself and the other mystics to a nearby asteroid, complete with a magic aura of oxygen to sustain them. When Strange mentioned that Agatha Harkness' cat could get them back to Earth, Dr. Druid seemed surprised that a cat could do such a thing but the mystics soon found that Agatha Harkness' soul was no longer in her body. Dr. Druid and the other mystics then laid hands on Agatha's body and used her soul connection to her cat Ebony to transport themselves back to Earth. Once back, Dr. Druid and the mystics fought off the Dr. Strange duplicate's demons while Strange himself went to battle the duplicate alone. When Strange returned, Dr. Druid welcomed him back as the mystics rounded up the last of the demons. Strange then banished the duplicate and his demons back to Counter-Earth and prepared to return to Galactus' ship, prompting Druid to ask if Strange thought their work on Earth was done. Agatha decided to stay on Earth while Strange then opened a portal that Dr. Druid, Scarlet Witch and Shaman entered.

(Infinity War I#6) - Shortly after Thor returned to Galactus' ship, where the assembled Earth's heroes based, Dr. Druid and the other mystics emerged from Dr. Strange's portal onto the ship. Galactus himself returned soon after and Druid watched as Galactus reluctantly agreed to side with the heroes against the Magus. A short time later, Druid accompanied Thor, Dr. Strange and Moondragon into the fray as several more of Earth's heroes battled their Magus-created doppelgangers while Galactus positioned himself from his ship. Having watched events unfold from afar, the Magus used the Infinity Gauntlet to remove the doppelgangers before generating a whirlwind that consumed Dr. Druid, Earth's heroes and Galactus himself, trapping them as trophies within a giant gem within the Magus' headquarters.

(Fantastic Four I#370) - After being freed from the gem, Dr. Druid and Earth's heroes were drawn back into Galactus' ship as Adam Warlock and the Magus wrestled over the Infinity Gauntlet.

(Infinity War I#6 - BTS) - Dr. Druid was restored to Earth after Adam Warlock succeeded in defeating the Magus.

(Secret Defenders I#16 (fb)) - Traveling to San Francisco to repossess a collection of mystic artifacts from sorcerer Mr. Magnus, Dr. Druid appeared as a guest lecturer at the University of San Francisco. While there, young graduate student Jillian Woods was compelled to meet Druid and the two felt an immediate psychic link between them. Intrigued by the connection, Dr. Druid offered to use his powers to determine the origin of the connection and learned that Woods and himself were forbidden lovers in a past life. Despite being shocked by the revelation, Woods nonetheless began a romance with Druid. When Woods learned the truth as to why Druid was in San Francisco, she insisted on accompanying him on his mission to reacquire the artifacts but she ultimately disturbed a series of protective wards and unleashed a demon. The last thing Woods saw was Dr. Druid leaping to save her life.

(Secret Defenders I#22 (fb)) - Desperate to save Woods' life, a maddened Dr. Druid challenged the Celtic gods that empowered him. As if in response, a small figure called the Bride of Slorioth appeared and Druid picked up the figure and placed it near Woods. As Druid watched, the figure absorbed the remaining spark of life left in Woods and fanned it, creating a shadowy form of Woods herself. When the shadow-form became self-aware, Druid quickly came up with a story of Woods' survival.

(Secret Defenders I#15 (fb)) - Woods, in the shadow form, awoke seemingly alive and was led to believe that she had gained strange shadow powers from the demon. Woods then returned to Boston with Dr. Druid so that he could study her newfound condition.


(Guardians of the Galaxy I#31 (fb) - BTS) - When the Earth-691 Guardians of the Galaxy ventured to modern era Earth-616, Dr. Druid suggested Captain America and the Guardians' leader Major Victory keep their shields separated.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#31) - Following a training session between Captain America and Earth-691's Major Victory, Dr. Druid contacted Captain America and informed the two heroes that they had been wise to keep the shields separated, as keeping them separated would preserve reality as they knew it. Shortly after meeting Captain America and Major Victory at Avengers Mansion, Dr. Druid managed to remove the danger to reality from both of the heroes' shields, returning them to their owners. When Major Victory seemed confused, Druid questioned him and learned that Major Victory simply wanted to know what all of the fuss was about, prompting Dr. Druid to ask if the destruction of the time/space continuum seemed like something to make a "fuss" over. Using his illusion powers to generate a chronal collapse, Dr. Druid admitted to not being a master of time but suggested that since the shields were from two different timelines, chronological chaos would ensue if the two shields came into contact. He then explained how he had placed a polarization spell on the shields to repel the shields from one another to keep them from contacting. Druid then departed, telling both Captain America and Major Victory good day.

(Secret Defenders I#22 (fb)) - Dr. Druid began using the Bride of Slorioth figure to summon Jillian Woods' shadow form in physical form, Woods' very existence dependent on whether or not Druid wished to use the Bride of Slorioth. Using Woods as a sort of genie in a bottle, Druid summoned her at will but each time he did, a portion of his soul was collected within the figure.

(Captain America I Annual#11) - Dr. Druid was levitating while meditating in his Boston townhouse when he sensed someone else there and demanded they show themselves. Kang Nebula then revealed herself, insisting that Druid need not make threats, and Druid admitted his suspicions that she was still alive but exclaimed that she had a lot of nerve returning after their previous encounter. Insisting that she had been crazed by the power she had acquired in the timestream, Nebula requested Dr. Druid's help but he coldly announced that she must have had him confused with someone who still loved her and prepared to return to his meditation.

(Thor I Annual#17) - Kang Nebula grew angry and announced that if Dr. Druid refused to aid her willingly, she would force his assistance, remarking that he was never able to resist her control. Resisting, Dr. Druid revealed that he was no longer the psychic pushover he once was and deflected Nebula's brain-blast back at her. Feigning respect for his newfound power, Kang Nebula attempted to use her charm to get her way but Druid announced that he was leaving before she was able to talk him into falling for her once more. When Kang Nebula refused to believe that Druid's love for her was completely dead, Druid grabbed her and exclaimed that it didn't matter who loved who, he was not going to do her bidding. He then demanded to know why Kang Nebula had sought him out again and Nebula explained that Kang had began a new scheme against the modern era and she hoped to stop him since she was stuck in the modern era as well. Kang Nebula then asked Dr. Druid if Kang's plot outweighed any ill will Druid might feel towards her and Druid admitted that it did despite his suspicions that she might be lying. Insisting she was not lying, Kang Nebula asked for a chance to prove she was trustworthy and Dr. Druid reluctantly agreed to accompany her, warning that he would be watching her like a hawk and that he was no longer the lovestruck swain he was when they were stuck in the Time-Bubble.

(Fantastic Four I Annual#25 (fb) - BTS) - Realizing Kang Nebula was not the space pirate Nebula and not knowing her true identity, Dr. Druid began referring to her as the Temptress as he sought to recruit the Fantastic Four against Kang, having long hoped to make the acquaintance of Mr. Fantastic.

(Fantastic Four I Annual#25) - Dr. Druid generated an illusion of the Fantasti-Flare, luring Human Torch into an alleyway where he explained to the Torch that he meant no harm. Human Torch responded by surrounding Dr. Druid in flames and warning that counterfeiting the Fantasti-Flare was against city ordinance but Druid revealed that he hoped to enlist the Fantastic Four's aid against Kang the Conqueror, whom the Torch quickly recognized as an Avengers foe and asked why Druid did not contact the Avengers. The Temptress then appeared and joked that it was because of her, the Avengers did not trust Druid. Human Torch began to be enthralled by Temptress as he once had in the past but Dr. Druid fought back, exclaiming that he had told the Temptress to stay out of sight and warned her not to use mind tricks to convince Human Torch to help. Ordering the Temptress to drop the illusions she was using to affect Human Torch, Dr. Druid forced Temptress to show her true form as the rest of the Fantastic Four arrived, recognizing Dr. Druid as a former Avenger and occult expert. Recounting his past as an Avenger and his association with the Temptress, Dr. Druid managed to convince the Fantastic Four to assist against Kang and Dr. Druid was soon traveling to Timely, Wisconsin alongside the FF. Traveling inside Kang's citadel, disguised as Timely Industries, Dr. Druid, Temptress and the Fantastic Four lost control of Mr. Fantastic's Time Sled and were forced down. Dr. Druid levitated everyone safely to the ground, unaware that the Avengers had also arrived at Timely Industries to investigate their missing members Vision, Captain America and Thor. Dr. Druid and the Fantastic Four immediately came under attack by a street gang in Punisher costumes and the Avengers also arrived, having been drawn into the citadel by a tractor beam. Disguising herself in the outfit the Avengers would recall, the Temptress accused the Avengers of being Kang agents in disguise and the Avengers, thinking the Fantastic Four were being mind controlled by the Temptress, joined in the attack. During the scuffle, Dr. Druid noticed the Temptress fleeing the scene and gave chase. Soon returning after failing to catch the Temptress, Dr. Druid revealed that the Avengers were truly who they said they were and the Fantastic Four were not being controlled, effectively ending the tussle. Suspecting the Temptress had went through one of Kang's time portals, Dr. Druid admitted he saw where the next portal went but did not want to venture through it without his allies in the Avengers and Fantastic Four. Before the heroes could continue, they found themselves faced with Kang's Anachronauts, who welcomed them to Chronopolis and announced their plans to capture the heroes.

(Avengers I Annual#21) - Dr. Druid prepared to battle the Anachronauts but during the fight, Druid pulled the Avenger Sersi aside and make a quiet suggestion. A short time later, Druid found himself on the ground with the Anachronaut Raa pointing a pointed staff right Druid's chest. Exclaiming that the fighting must stop or he would be impaled, Dr. Druid convinced the Avengers and Fantastic Four to surrender, secretly to gain entrance in Kang's stronghold. Ordered inside the stronghold, Dr. Druid and the other heroes found themselves trapped within a force cube, where the supposedly true Kang announced that he would give the heroes a span of years to stop his latest plan. As the Kang was monologuing, the Temptress appeared and stabbed the Kang to death, prompting the true Kang to appear and announce that he had allowed Dr. Druid and the other heroes to infiltrate his Chronopolis in an effort to have the heroes lure the Temptress to him after she had murdered several Kang counterparts within the Council of Kangs. Kang ultimately became intrigued at how ruthless Temptress, who began calling herself Terminatrix, had become and challenged her to duel, unaware that the Anachronaut Raa, secretly a disguised Sersi, used the duel as a distraction to free the Avengers, Dr. Druid and the Fantastic Four. The heroes quickly escaped and during the ensuing battle, Dr. Druid got a punch in on Terminatrix but she continued her focus on Kang. While the other heroes focused on the Anachronauts, Mr. Fantastic met up with Dr. Druid and suggested they find something to use against Kang. Kang was ultimately gravely injured by Thor's hammer and Terminatrix abandoned her plans to kill Kang in favor of saving his life, leaving Dr. Druid, the Avengers and the Fantastic Four to escape Chronopolis in their Quinjet, which had the Fantastic Four's Time Sled strapped to its fuselage.

(Captain America I#409) - Captain America had Dr. Druid display an illusion of his ally Diamondback's current status. When Druid burned a portion of Diamondback's clothing to get a psychic reading and displayed an image of Diamondback surrounded by smoke and fire, Cap asked Dr. Druid if he could pinpoint where she was but Druid proved unable to do so, only identifying that there were mountains nearby. Noticing that Diamondback appeared trapped, Captain America asked Druid if he could get an impression of who Diamondback was with and Druid could only sense a man in a skull mask. Deciding that the Rocky Mountains were a good first start in terms of places to search, Captain America invited Dr. Druid to accompany Falcon and himself to search for Diamondback but Druid declined, feeling that he was better suited to supernatural situations and sensing that there was nothing supernatural about Diamondback's predicament. As Captain America and Falcon departed to find Diamondback, thanking Dr. Druid for his assistance, Edwin Jarvis came into the room and asked if Dr. Druid was done burning clothing, as he had meals to attend to. Druid apologized, explaining that the kitchen seemed like the most logical choice of where to burn something and Jarvis responded by informing Druid that nothing had ever been burned in that kitchen.

(She-Hulk III#12 (fb) - BTS) - As the only North Dakota resident that remembered the true events following Nightwatch's earlier reality warp, George Saywitz found that not even his hometown was recalled as ever existing, prompting him to sue all heroes and villains present at the reality warp, including Dr. Druid, Tigra, Captain Marvel (Monica Rambeau), Nightwatch himself, She-Hulk, Wyatt Wingfoot, Vibro and Shocker.

(She-Hulk III#2 (fb) - BTS) - A motion to change the venue of the court case of George Saywitz vs. Dr. Druid and the other heroes and villains to North Dakota was filed but the court case was never completed and the paperwork was filed in a blue file alongside other legal documents pertaining to the case.

(Secret Defenders I#15 (fb) - BTS) - Together with the shadow form of Jillian Woods, who donned a costume as Shadowoman, Dr. Druid mesmerized the Living Mummy and the Blazing Skull to act as his agents, dubbed Shock Troop, to police the occult.

(Quasar I#46 (fb) - BTS) - Sensing occult disturbances in North Carolina, Dr. Druid and the Shock Troop traveled there to investigate.

(Quasar I#45) - After the cosmic protector Quasar crashed to Earth carrying Antibodies, Dr. Druid and his newly-created Shock Troop squad confronted Quasar as he emerged from the crater his impact had created.

(Quasar I#46) - Presuming the man in the crater was Quasar, Dr. Druid extended his hand to assist Quasar, who recognized Druid as a former Avenger, out of the crater. Explaining that Shock Troop was in the area due to its infestation of occult entities, Dr. Druid levitated Quasar from the crater as Shock Troop began battling the entities that Quasar had been fighting. Druid revealed that Shock Troop was there to police the occult and asked the situation, prompting Quasar to explain that the Antibodies multiplied when hit and that radioactive mutant Presence and Imperial Guardsman Neutron were also in the area. Explaining that Shock Troop's field of expertise was the occult, Druid informed Quasar that Shock Troop would handle the Antibodies while Quasar handled the Presence and Neutron. As Quasar flew off, Dr. Druid ordered the Living Mummy to bring him one of the Antibodies and when the Living Mummy delayed after being swarmed by Antibodies, Druid exclaimed a reminder, prompting the Living Mummy to ask for a free moment. While the Living Mummy held one of the Antibodies in place, Druid attempted to enter the Antibody's mind to learn its origins and motivations. Sensing two men within the Antibody's thoughts, Dr. Druid ordered the Antibody to explain what the men wanted and why the Antibodies were rampaging. Invoking the three Celtic goddesses Macha, Morrigan and Badb, Dr. Druid learned that the Antibodies were in torment but was unsure of how to remedy the torment, soon summoning Shadowoman with an idea. Explaining that the Antibodies were in torment due to lack of a host body, Dr. Druid asked Shadowoman to project her Darkforce energy around the Antibody and then had Blazing Skull and the Living Mummy allow the Antibodies to progress. Giving the Antibody a psychokinetic charge, Dr. Druid watched as the progressing Antibodies were drawn into the one Druid was examining, only to be sent into the Darkforce dimension due to Shadowoman's covering the Antibody with Darkforce energy. Sensing that Shadowoman could not hold her energy projection for long, Dr. Druid was soon overwhelmed by the remaining two dozen Antibodies and he psychically summoned Quasar back to the scene for help. When Quasar, he had the Shi'ar Imperial Guardsman Glom attached to his arm and Glom quickly jumped into battle, devouring several Antibodies as Dr. Druid wondered Glom was. Upon learning that Glom was an energy-eating alien, Druid had Glom throw the remaining Antibodies into the one he was examining in hopes of sending them all to the Darkforce dimension while Shadowoman could continue projecting the energy around the single Antibody. Once the Antibodies were all banished except for the one Druid was examining, Glom took a large bite out of the remaining Antibody, shocking Dr. Druid and Shock Troop, who thought Shadowoman was still connected to the last Antibody. After Shadowoman revealed that she had disconnected from the Antibody before Glom had chomped down, Dr. Druid was surprised when three other Shi'ar Imperial Guardsmen arrived and soon learned that they were also aliens affiliated with Glom. Once the Imperial Guard had departed, Quasar thanked Dr. Druid and Shock Troop for the assist, admitting that the Avengers might have been wrong about him, and Druid replied that he walked in different circles these days. He then told Quasar that if he ever had a problem with the supernatural, he knew who to call.

(Quasar I#50) - When the swamp creature Man-Thing lumbered towards the visible Nexus of Realities, Dr. Druid and many other mystics sensed that something momentous was about to happen in the Florida swamps where the Nexus appeared.

(Captain America I#420 (fb) - BTS) - Dr. Druid attempted to help his Shock Troop teammate, Blazing Skull, remove a belt that had previously left the Skull's skin transparent and glowing when a removal was attempted. After learning that the Night Shift had recent supernatural dealings, Druid sent Blazing Skull to investigate the organization.

(Captain America I#420 - BTS) - Following a brief encounter between the Shock Troop's Blazing Skull and Captain America, who at first suspected the Blazing Skull of being in league with the Red Skull, the Blazing Skull explained that he worked for Dr. Druid, a man he believed Captain America knew. When the police arrived, Blazing Skull opted to leave, claiming the police didn't like his looks, and Captain America thought that as soon as Blazing Skull was out of earshot, he was going to call Dr. Druid to see if Druid would vouch for Blazing Skull.

(Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur I#15 (fb) - BTS) - At some point, Dr. Druid published papers on the energy patterns of mystic energy.

(Secret Defenders I#15 (fb) - BTS) - At some point, Dr. Druid hired Deadpool for unidentified work, establishing a usual fee and delivery place for the money.

(Secret Defenders I#15) - Dr. Druid spent forty-eight hours on a binding spell that he cast spell using various runes. As he finished the spell and prepared to relax, he received an astral message from Dr. Strange, announcing that Druid had been called to serve. Unsure what Strange was talking about, Dr. Druid touched Strange's astral form and was bombarded with memories and future visions. As new visions enveloped him, Dr. Druid realized that a mantle had passed and Druid would now feel compelled to act whenever the natural order of the universe was threatened. Feeling as if he had been cursed, Dr. Druid cried out, drawing the attention of Shadowoman, whom assumed her shadow form at Druid's suggestion. Revealing that he had seen a vision of the mystic Moebius Stone artifact and how dark forces had reassembled the Stone except for two pieces in Agamotto's absence, Dr. Druid decided to recruit defenders to protect the two remaining Moebius Stone fragments until such a time that Druid and Shadowoman could arrive on the scene. When Shadowoman asked if he planned to mesmerize a new Shock Troop squad, Druid remarked that a simple phone call would suffice, as the first fragment was in Chicago. Phoning Luke Cage, Dr. Druid tipped him off to criminals performing a heist in the Chicago Museum of Art, where the Moebius Stone fragment resided, and hired Cage to guard the Museum. Having also hired the mercenary Deadpool, Dr. Druid arrived at the Chicago Museum of Art to find Luke Cage fighting with Deadpool. Asking who Dr. Druid was, Luke Cage was informed by Deadpool that Druid was the "Rod Serling of the Celtic Set" before Deadpool refused to participate in anything involving Druid. Using his mental abilities, Druid mesmerized Deadpool, reminding him of their past association and Deadpool's recent epiphany that he could be using his talents for more than killing. Affected by Druid's mesmerism, Deadpool agreed to join Druid's Secret Defenders in exchange for his usual fee and when Shadowoman questioned whether mesmerism was necessary, Druid replied that he had only given Deadpool a small psychic nudge, as the mercenary was already on the verge of agreeing to work with Druid. With Cage also joining up, Druid led the Secret Defenders to another wing of the Museum, where the ancient Sword of Iskandar resided. Acquiring the Sword, Druid suggested the Secret Defenders pay no heed to the alarms, as they would be gone before police arrived and their enemy drew near in search of the Moebius Stone fragment in the Sword's hilt. Upon seeing Druid grab the Sword, Luke Cage warned that he didn't care if Druid was paying him, he wasn't going to allow Druid to steal the Sword of Iskandar but before any more arguments could be made, Druid was hit by a blast fired by the ancient Malachi. Recognizing Malachi from his earlier visions, Druid warned that the Moebius Stone was not meant for human hands but Malachi proclaimed that she had sought to complete the Moebius Stone for centuries and that she did so out of love. When Malachi blasted Druid again, the Secret Defenders rushed at Malachi, who brought the Museum's paintings and statues to life. As the Secret Defenders were sufficiently distracted battling living paintings and statues, Deadpool asked for Dr. Druid's help, only to find that Druid was seemingly nowhere to be found. While the Secret Defenders thought Druid had left them to fend for themselves, Dr. Strange viewed Tarot cards inside in Sanctum Sanctorum, one of which proclaimed Dr. Druid the Fool.

(Secret Defenders I#16) - Still thinking Dr. Druid had ran out on them, Luke Cage and Deadpool argued, with Cage accusing Deadpool of being money-grubbing and Deadpool asking how Druid was paying Cage. Having not actually left the scene, only used mesmerism to render himself undetectable, Dr. Druid levitated above the fight and realized the living paintings and statues were nothing more than images created by a mystical trick of light. Psychically ordering Shadowoman to project her shadow-self across the entire room, Dr. Druid revealed his presence and explained how Shadowoman's shadow-self would prevent any light from entering the area, effectively ending the illusory images. Fully appearing to the Secret Defenders, Dr. Druid informed the group that Malachi's solid illusions had been fully capable of killing the heroes and announced his trust that the Secret Defenders would have more faith in him in the future. Determining that Malachi had escaped during the scuffle, Druid proclaimed that they must follow and began fiddling with an ancient Celtic artifact that he could use to teleport the Secret Defenders back to his Boston townhouse. When Luke Cage argued against Druid taking an artifact for his own use, Druid grimly informed Cage that he would no longer be needed and his payment had been made. Dismissing Cage, Druid reminded him that police frowned upon ex-convicts being at the scene of Museum break-ins but Cage refused to leave, claiming he would staying close to Druid until the Moebius Stone fragment was returned to the Museum. Agreeing to allow Cage to continue with the Secret Defenders, Druid assured Cage that he had no intention of purloining the Museum's artifacts and bid the Secret Defenders to step into the circle of ancient stones he had arranged on the floor. As Dr. Druid and the Secret Defenders teleported away, the police arrived to see them disappear. Arriving at his townhouse, Dr. Druid asked the Defenders to relax while he made preparations for a spell that would allow them to track the Moebius Stone fragment in Malachi's possession. After Dr. Druid warned the group not to touch anything, Luke Cage asked Shadowoman her story and she recounted her past association with Dr. Druid. Returning a short time later to inform the Secret Defenders that all was ready with the spell, Dr. Druid ordered Deadpool to unhand a mystic icon he was handling and grimly informed Cage that Shadowoman's fate was of her own making, warning that if Cage didn't follow Druid's instructions implicitly, a similar fate might befall Cage as well. Locating Malachi in a graveyard after she had kissed a young boy named Cody, draining his life force, Dr. Druid and the Secret Defenders attacked but were blasted aside by Malachi. Malachi mystically animated gravestones to fight Cage and Deadpool while Dr. Druid snuck into the tomb housing the final piece of the Moebius Stone. Despite Dr. Druid's warnings, Malachi reassembled the Moebius Stone and as her power grew, the young boy she had killed returned to life as the mystic guardian Cadaver. Ordering the Secret Defenders to stop Malachi, Dr. Druid found them unable to help despite Cadaver's assistance and Druid soon witnessed Malachi unraveling the very fabric of time itself with the Moebius Stone.

(Secret Defenders I#17) - As time unraveled across the world, Malachi captured Dr. Druid and Shadowoman in mystic bindings while Luke Cage, Deadpool and Cadaver attempted to fight back. Proclaiming Dr. Druid to be a noble opponent, Malachi admitted that creating a temporal vortex had somewhat drained and she siphoned life energy from Dr. Druid, aging him. When Shadowoman escaped her bounds to fight Malachi, the aged Dr. Druid used the distraction to escape his own bounds and use his "Third Eye" inward on himself to accelerate the birth and rebirth of his own cells until he was restored to his true age and rejuvenated health. Malachi soon hurled Shadowoman away from her and Druid rushed to her side, admitting that Shadowoman should not have been able to survive such an assault. Suggesting they speak about her surviving later, Dr. Druid was instead grabbed by Shadowoman, who demanded they speak about it now and asked what Druid had turned her into. Malachi then commented that Shadowoman was unaware of her true nature and questioned how Dr. Druid himself might use the Moebius Stone but Druid warned Malachi not to incur his wrath. Malachi laughed off Druid's threats and turned her temporal powers on Luke Cage, aging her back to before he had superhuman powers, but Deadpool soon caught up to Malachi and stabbed her through the heart. Realizing that Malachi's time vortex would go wild without a human host to control it, Dr. Druid grasped the Moebius Stone from the neck of the deceased Malachi and prepared to use it to repair the damage she had done to the timestream. Once the Moebius Stone was in his hands, however, Dr. Druid became tempted to use the Moebius Stone to correct his own history, putting right what went wrong with Shadowoman, Kang Nebula and the Avengers, but before he could use the Stone, he was blasted by the mystic construct Strange, who appeared and announced that Druid had fulfilled his role in the Moebius Stone affair. When Strange attempted to acquire the Moebius Stone for itself, Dr. Druid announced to the Secret Defenders that Strange must not be allowed to obtain the Moebius Stone, prompting Cadaver to slice Strange with his Sword of Bone. Unaffected, Strange considered acquiring the Sword of Bone as well, easily downing the Secret Defenders. During the scuffle, Luke Cage grabbed the Moebius Stone and, realizing that Strange was not the Dr. Strange he knew, hurled the Moebius Stone to Dr. Druid, who used the Moebius Stone on itself, reversing Malachi's time vortex effects until the Stone itself was unmade. Dr. Druid then boasted to Strange to remember that it was Druid who had denied Strange's whims and taken pleasure in doing so. As Strange then prepared to depart the scene, Dr. Druid ordered Strange to tell Dr. Strange that he would pay for cursing Dr. Druid with the precognitive visions that led to him taking Dr. Strange's role as leader of the Secret Defenders. Exclaiming that he was no man's lackey, Dr. Druid ranted that Dr. Strange would pay dearly for the burden now levied upon his head.







(Warlock & the Infinity Watch I#30) - When Adam Warlock and the enigmatic Maya appeared to share a connection, the Infinity Watch summoned Dr. Druid, who admitted that the spell that bound Warlock to Maya was so complex that not even his supernatural knowledge was able to stymie the connection. Druid was eventually forced to admit that there was nothing he could do and remarked that he wasn't even sure any mystic in reality could help. Resigned to his situation, Adam Warlock nonetheless thanked Dr. Druid for the assistance and commented that he was in Druid's debt. Warlock then asked Moondragon to show Dr. Druid the way out.

(Secret Defenders I#18) - Dr. Druid ran tests on Cadaver, confirming not only that Cadaver was indeed dead but that he also lacked a soul, which had vacated the body of Cody Fleischer when Malachi killed him. Explaining how the lack of soul left Cody's body free to be inhabited by the Moebius Stone's guardian, Dr. Druid revealed that in time, they could discover why Cadaver was still around despite being dead before remarking that they were about to have a visitor. When Cadaver remarked that he didn't hear anything, Dr. Druid boasted that it was because he was not Dr. Anthony Druid, Master of the Unknown. Picking up a small figure, Dr. Druid used it to summon Shadowoman to greet their guest but Shadowoman questioned Druid's request, claiming she didn't hear the doorbell. After informing Shadowoman that their guest would arrive shortly, Druid overheard Cadaver commenting how Shadowoman acts as if she were in their presence the entire time and informed Cadaver that Shadowoman's condition was sensitive, ordering Cadaver not to speak to Shadowoman about witnessing her sudden summoning into the room. The Secret Defenders' guest, Mathieson, an old friend of Dr. Druid's, informed them that his secret bureau, Bureau 18, had been investigating a series of recent killer bee attacks and disturbances in insect migration, converging at a supercollider project at a Rand-Meacham facility in Houston, Texas. Mathieson admitted that he realized Dr. Druid was active again after seeing a series of arranged stones at the Chicago Museum of Art and requested Dr. Druid's help in investigating the migrational disturbances. Agreeing to help the man this one time, Dr. Druid informed the man that he would need the help of insect behavior expert, Dr. Henry Pym, better known as Giant-Man. When Giant-Man was summoned to investigate the supercollider, Dr. Druid, Shadowoman and Cadaver observed from afar, thanks to Dr. Druid's subtle psychic screen, as Dr. Druid felt the Avengers thought him a threat at worst and an incompetent at best. An insect attack soon covered the Rand-Meacham facility, forcing into action Giant-Man and Iron Fist, who was at the facility in his secret identity of Danny Rand. Dr. Druid, Cadaver and Shadowoman then revealed themselves as well, traveling deep into the facility, where Druid sensed a disturbance in insect harmony. Cadaver then used his Sword of Bone to carve a way into the epicenter of the insect disturbance, where a cave-in allowed the disturbance's cause, the sentient bee colony called Swarm, to trap Dr. Druid and Cadaver. While Shadowoman remained hidden in her shadow form, Dr. Druid attempted to make contact with to discern Swarm's history. At first wracked with psychic feedback pain, Druid soon deduced that the migrational disturbance was actually an act of war by Swarm, whose colony of bees was disturbed by the world's energy emissions. Recognizing that he would need assistance to stop Swarm, Dr. Druid psychically contacted the X-Men's Archangel and Iceman, posing as Professor X to summon them to the scene of the Secret Defenders' battle with Swarm.

(Secret Defenders I#19) - Still trapped by Swarm, Dr. Druid noticed Shadowoman's shadow form and telepathically informed her of Swarm's plans to create a massive electromagnetic pulse using the Rand-Meacham supercollider. Explaining how imperative it was that Cadaver and himself be freed, Dr. Druid had Shadowoman compress her shadow form small enough to enter Cadaver's trap, allowing Cadaver to pass through Shadowoman's shadow form and escape. Cadaver immediately freed Dr. Druid while Giant-Man and Iron Fist disturbed the migrated insects above ground. Dr. Druid and the Secret Defenders then confronted Swarm while Giant-Man, Iron Fist and the arriving Archangel and Iceman dealt with the swarming insects. During the battle against Swarm, Dr. Druid managed to divine the location of Cadaver's Sword of Bone and used psychokinesis to pull the Sword of Bone back to Cadaver's hands. Cadaver then cut a swath through Swarm's bees, destroying the hive, and got Druid and the Secret Defenders back above ground. When Swarm followed, announcing that he could not be killed, Dr. Druid spoke with Swarm and suggested Swarm wait until humanity destroyed itself before taking over, warning that any acts of aggression by Swarm would only earn humanity's enmity. Realizing Druid was right and that creating more enmity would only provoke humanity into destroying him, Swarm opted to depart, warning that if Dr. Druid's suggestions proved false, he would return. After the battle, Dr. Druid and the Secret Defenders met back up with Mathieson and Druid informed him that the affair was over as long as the supercollider remained abandoned. Shadowoman then warned Mathieson that Swarm was still out there, prompting Druid to chime in that Swarm's eyes were everywhere and he would return if humanity failed to see the consequences of their actions.

(Secret Defenders I#20) - Dr. Druid used the mental power of transubstantiation to transport Shadowoman, Cadaver and himself back to his Boston townhouse. Once inside, Druid suggested the Secret Defenders turn their attention to more pressing matters such as repaying Dr. Strange for the curse that prompts him into action. Cadaver interrupted, explaining that he needed to be returning home to Seattle, and when Shadowoman argued that Cadaver would only make things worse now that he was dead, Dr. Druid suggested allowing Cadaver to return home if he wished. Teleporting Cadaver to Seattle, Dr. Druid wished him godspeed and reminded Cadaver that if he did not find what he sought, Druid's door would always be open for him. Revealing to Shadowoman that Cadaver had nowhere to go and would return to the Secret Defenders, Druid was quickly assaulted with questions from Shadowoman, who demanded to know more about her powers and her mysterious resurrections. Kissing her, Dr. Druid agreed that she deserved to know the truth but then remarked "but not today" and restored Shadowoman psyche to the small figure he had earlier used to summon her. Druid was then almost immediately suffered a precognitive vision and as he cursed Dr. Strange for plaguing him with visions in the first place. Realizing he had to act quickly lest he be plagued with another vision spurring him into action, Dr. Druid decided he needed minions with both Cadaver and Shadowoman absent. Teleporting away, Dr. Druid figured he would have to mesmerize any local superheroic talent he could to ensure their servitude. Arriving in San Francisco in the middle of the street, Dr. Druid saw Julia Carpenter and her daughter and recognized Julia as Spider-Woman. Announcing that Spider-Woman was needed, Dr. Druid was quickly berated for jumping in front of her car but Druid only smiled and produced his reserve Avengers identicard, explaining that he was an Avenger like herself. When Spider-Woman accused the east coast Avengers of treating her badly recently, Dr. Druid used his mesmerism powers and explained that he too had been treated unfairly by Captain America, suggesting that they could work together on this mission to untarnish their reputations. Affected by Druid's mesmerism, Spider-Woman agreed to help but asked about her daughter Rachel and Dr. Druid saw that she was taken care of by mesmerizing a bystander to ensure Rachel was delivered to her destination unharmed. Dr. Druid's vision led Spider-Woman and himself to the San Francisco sewers, where Venom accused them of intruding on his base of operations, but Dr. Druid mesmerized Venom into thinking they were bystanders, prompting Venom into leaving, swearing to protect them. Dr. Druid and Spider-Woman then ventured into the sewers, where Spider-Woman questioned whether or not they should have kept Venom around but Druid explained that Venom's alien/human mind would prove difficult to control for long. When a creature attacked them, Dr. Druid rendered himself undetectable as Spider-Woman thought she had been abandoned. Spider-Woman was soon captured by the creature, forcing Dr. Druid to reveal himself despite his wishes to determine the creature's nature first. Attempting to mesmerize the creature, Dr. Druid was put in a chokehold and Druid quickly realized his mesmerism was useless against a creature whose minds were at odds with one another. When he later regained consciousness, Dr. Druid found Spider-Woman and himself woven into a mound of living creatures by the enigmatic Slaymaker, who claimed Druid and Spider-Woman were now part of his masterpiece, the pyramid-shaped Panentropic Engine.

(Secret Defenders I#21) - While still trapped within the Panentropic Engine, Dr. Druid telepathically contacted Cadaver and summoned him to San Francisco. When Dr. Druid attempted to mesmerize Slaymaker and force him to release Spider-Woman and himself, Slaymaker, who could manipulate flesh, sealed up Dr. Druid's eyes to prevent any future mesmerism, causing Druid great pain. Awaking hours later, Dr. Druid found he was in no pain but explained how hindered his mesmerism powers were with his eyes sealed before assuring Spider-Woman that had had made arrangements for reinforcements that would arrive shortly. After both Cadaver and U.S.Agent, who had been summoned by Spider-Woman's daughter Rachel, arrived on the scene, failing to turn the tide, Dr. Druid ordered Spider-Woman to allow him to psychically see through her eyes. Impatiently realizing that he had to do what he felt was necessary to win, Dr. Druid psychically set Cadaver ablaze to produce the fear the creatures had of Slaymaker's own pyrokinetic touch. When Slaymaker empowered the Panentropic Engine, Dr. Druid took drastic measures, asking Spider-Woman to weave a psychic web throughout the Engine, which Druid then took control of with his mental powers. Overwhelmed by all of the minds in the Panentropic Engine, Dr. Druid suddenly disassembled the Engine, causing immense psychic feedback that knocked out Slaymaker. Leaving Spider-Woman and U.S.Agent to clean up the mess, Dr. Druid had Cadaver follow up in leaving, claiming that while the nightmare of Slaymaker was over, his own nightmares had just begun.

(Secret Defenders I#22) - Dr. Druid met to negotiate with the demon Slorioth, who offered to give Druid his fondest desires and wishes in exchange for succeeding in a particular venture. After learning that Druid had been summoning and sending her back to the Bride of Slorioth figure at will, Shadowoman erupted from the figure and sought out Dr. Druid for revenge. Finding him about to pass through a portal, Shadowoman grabbed Druid by the throat and accused him of metaphysically violating her. Warning Shadowoman that he was her link to the Earthly plane, Dr. Druid claimed that everything he had done to her was done out of his love for her. As Cadaver came in to check on Druid, Dr. Druid explained how he had only done what he could to save her and informed the Secret Defenders that arguments had to be set aside, as a new task awaited them. Accusing Dr. Druid of caring only about their business, Shadowoman was surprised when Dr. Druid revealed that their next adventure promised an end to all three of their curses. He then reached telepathically, mesmerizing Drax the Destroyer, vigilantes Cloak and Dagger, and the cybernetic Deathlok to aid in their upcoming venture. Druid then asked the Secret Defenders for help as well and after Cadaver agreed to help, Shadowoman agreed but opted to change her alias to Sepulcre. Dr. Druid then opened a portal of transubstantiation and promised that by the end of the day, the Secret Defenders would be no more. The group then disappeared as a young boy named Joshua arrived too late to catch them. Joshua pulled a strange severed head in a jar from his backpack and the head told Joshua to look at the oak in Druid's townhouse. When Joshua replied that it was rotting, the head explained that the oak reflected Druid himself.

(Secret Defenders I#23) - Having been telepathically compelled to travel to the town of Starksboro, Deathlok found that the vigilante Dagger had also been compelled to go there and when Deathlok asked what brought Dagger there, Dr. Druid revealed the Secret Defenders and himself, having been invisible the entire time, and explained that he had summoned the two heroes there. Introducing his teammates, Dr. Druid beckoned for Deathlok and Dagger to follow the Secret Defenders into the house called Wyldwind so that he could more candidly explain the mission that had provoked Druid to summon them there. Once inside, Druid revealed that the demon Slorioth had been bound to the land of Starksboro and how the spell that kept him bound was waning. Informing Dagger and Deathlok that a new spell to support the original would require three pure spirits to traverse the land, Dr. Druid introduced the third hero he had summoned as Drax the Destroyer came crashing through Wyldwind's glass skylight, unaware that the mystic Cognoscenti were in his Boston townhouse learning that the townhouse resided along mystic ley lines. Dr. Druid then led Dagger, Drax and Deathlok to a spot to begin their mission but when Cadaver grew impatient, Druid warned him not to question his orders. After facing down their fears within a mystic doorway, Dagger, Deathlok and Drax returned, where Dr. Druid commended them on successfully leading the way for the Secret Defenders to progress against Slorioth. Holding aloft the Bride of Slorioth figure, Dr. Druid announced that only he could venture through the Gate of Perdition, which was opened by the Bride figure. The Gate soon emerged from the ground and Dr. Druid ordered the other Secret Defenders to remain behind, reminding them again that only he could venture through the Gate but his progress was soon halted when the time-displaced Namor the Sub-Mariner, Hulk and Silver Surfer appeared and announced the Secret Defenders to be pretenders to the good name of the original Defenders team.

(Secret Defenders I#24) - While the Secret Defenders, Deathlok, Dagger and Drax fought Namor, Silver Surfer and Hulk, Dr. Druid ventured through the Gate of Perdition towards Slorioth's tabernacle, his trek witnessed by the Cognoscenti, who had arrived alongside Namor, Hulk and Silver Surfer, whom they had transported the scene themselves. Druid soon noticed the Cognoscenti's Joshua Pryce and when Pryce mentioned that he had been trained to protect mankind since birth, Druid recognized Pryce as one of the Cognoscenti and attacked, shattering a stone column to incapacitate Pryce. Admitting his lack of impression in Pryce, Dr. Druid continued to Slorioth, announcing to the demon that its needs had been met and all had been made ready. When Slorioth promised to fulfill Druid's desires upon being freed, Druid realized that being within Slorioth's tabernacle had increased his own mystical abilities and he turned on Slorioth, announcing that Slorioth's freedom was no longer an issue and that he finally had a chance to free himself from his curse. Slorioth angrily fought back against Druid, informing that his physical form had grown from Druid's own tainted soul, which he claimed belonged to Slorioth from the moment Druid had invoked the Bride of Slorioth figure to save Jillian Woods. Slorioth's physical aspect then merged with Dr. Druid as the helpless Cognoscenti watched. Affected by the merger, Druid/Slorioth proclaimed that his secret, silent yearnings had been fulfilled and he announced that he should return payment to his master as he placed the Bride of Slorioth figure on an altar, the act of which awakened the true Slorioth.

(Secret Defenders I#25) - The corrupted Dr. Druid explained to the captive Cognoscenti how Earth would provide a fertile place for Slorioth to sow his seeds and when the Cognoscenti asked why Druid did what he had done but Druid only smiled and remarked that chaos was life and was more interesting than order. Admitting his interest in Joshua Pryce, having never encountered a true Cognoscenti before, the corrupted Druid announced his plans to hone a weapon to slay the soul of Earth itself. He then revealed that while Dr. Strange had sided with the mystic Vishanti during the then-unfolding War of the Seven Spheres, Druid chose to side with Slorioth and accelerate the shadowing of the world to its end and inevitable new dawn. The Cognoscenti Al accused Pryce of being responsible for the situation as much as Druid himself because he had stopped to help an injured couple on the way to Druid's Boston townhouse but Pryce responded by transporting Druid's Secret Defenders teammates, Sepulcre and Cadaver, into Slorioth's tabernacle for assistance. Shocked to see the corrupted Druid, Sepulcre questioned him and Druid revealed that what remained of himself now belonged to Slorioth and that he had done everything for Sepulcre. Explaining how his original bargains with Slorioth were intended to be withheld and the Secret Defenders' individual curses lifted, Dr. Druid grew angry when the Secret Defenders aligned against him to save Earth. Announcing that Dr. Strange's visionary curse on Dr. Druid had expired and that Pryce needed to strike, the Cognoscenti Al was removed from his jar by Dr. Druid, forcing Cadaver to pull the Sword of Bone on Druid, who blasted Cadaver aside and melted his corpse form. When Sepulcre fought back to avenge Cadaver, Dr. Druid exclaimed that Sepulcre only existed at his behest and began to remove her from his existence, prompting Joshua Pryce to pick up Cadaver's Sword of Bone and stab Dr. Druid with it. Unaffected, Dr. Druid fiercely battled Joshua Pryce, who called for help to prevent a temporal disaster resulting from the deaths of the time-displaced original Defenders. Empowered by the birth of a new Cognoscenti, Rose Steadbaur, to the couple Pryce had earlier saved, Joshua Pryce renewed his attacks on Druid, creating another of a mystic "bang" to draw the attention of the mystic Vishanti. The fight between Pryce and the corrupted Dr. Druid soon also drew the attention of the cosmic Living Tribunal, who drew Slorioth and his influence from Earth, effectively ending the battle. Later, with Dr. Druid seemingly nowhere to be found, Jillian Woods asked Joshua Pryce what would happen to the Secret Defenders with Druid gone and Pryce explained that while Druid's Secret Defenders were no longer a team, it was up to Woods and Cadaver to decide what to do next. As Woods decided to depart Wyldwind with Cadaver, Druid's "butler" asked if they would like more refreshments before they left but the duo replied in the negative and left. The butler watched them off then returned inside Wyldwind, remarking to himself that Starksboro as well as Earth itself was now safe and that after all the lies and deception, the Secret Defenders had reached its own foregone conclusion. The butler then looked into a mirror, revealing himself as a restored Dr. Druid. He then proclaimed his own curse lifted and with no one wise of his newfound lease on life, Druid monologued that he was now free to pursue his own agendas once more. Entering a mystic portal, Druid remarked that all that was left was to decide whether his new agendas would be for the cause of good or evil.

(Druid I#1 (fb)) - With his death now faked to the Secret Defenders and the world, Dr. Druid began to look back at his life and think it a joke. Obtaining penthouse space in New York using his mesmerism powers, Dr. Druid began frequenting dive bars and allowed himself to get close to many broken, low-level mystics, who soon became his followers, dabbling in the occult for fun.

(Secret Avengers I#20 (fb)) - Druid's former ally Black Widow visited Dr. Druid at his New York penthouse and asked for his help against the Shadow Council, whom Druid had only heard of. Druid asked why Black Widow did not go to her friend Dr. Strange first and Black Widow replied that Druid had a reputation for being more pragmatic. Black Widow then informed Druid that she needed to know how to close a mystic portal opened by the Shadow Council and Druid revealed that magic was merely effects generated by will and art, suggesting that while he could give her a mantra and a chicken that would kill the portal, a suitcase nuclear device might accomplish the safe feat. A surprised Black Widow admitted that she had seen mystics attack each other with mystic blasts in the past but Druid explained that mystics were merely irradiating one another and tapped certain iconography to increase their own power. He then eerily smiled, pulled out a book and remarked that he just needed to provide Black Widow with the proper radiation to dissolve the portal.

(Doc Samson II#1 (fb) - BTS) - Low-level sorcerer Jack Holyoak trained with Dr. Druid for a week before moving on to train with various other sorcerers.

(Druid I#1) - Awaking one morning crying, Anthony Druid overheard one of his followers, Scurve, reciting text from one of his occult books and rushed into the kitchen to find that Scurve had unintentionally summoned Daimon Hellstrom. When Hellstrom slew Scurve, Dr. Druid attempted to punish Hellstrom for murdering Scurve but Hellstrom easily fought off Druid's assaults, claiming that Druid wasn't really worth the effort. Proclaiming that the "Master of the Unknown" might someday rise up to become "King of Toilets," Hellstrom warned Druid that he would eviscerate him the next time they met before disappearing. Moved by his failure to save Scurve, Dr. Druid ran out into the larger penthouse, where his followers were lounging around, and proclaimed there to be heretics and babykillers everywhere. Rushing back into his room, Druid announced that he would not be broken and warned his followers not to disturb him or he would nail their guts to the great oak tree. Inside, Dr. Druid beseeched the Celtic gods for help and was first shown a vision of Druidic history before a second vision showed him the world as it was. As the second vision ended, Druid found the fat melted from his body and Celtic sigils covering his body. A third vision then left Druid reborn as the destroyer of the world as it was. Unhinged by the experiences, Druid denounced his Americanized "Anthony Druid" name and proclaimed himself once more "Anthony Ludgate" as his followers looked on in surprise. Emerging from his room claiming that he now possessed the power of every druid, Anthony proclaimed himself the last druid, renamed himself the Druid, and announced that the world would shake at his touch.

(Druid I#2) - From his penthouse, Druid looked out at New York and thought it a cesspit, thinking that he ought to nail everyone in the city to the great oak tree. Thinking how he could and might do just that, Druid further thought about how his newfound status as the last druid allowed him to do anything he wanted. Summoning his follower Redeyes, Druid had her gather another follower, Hemingway, so that he could go out into the city of New York and Druid soon found himself in a cab whose driver was complaining about immigrants. When Druid remarked that the driver's drivel was barely English, the cab driver pulled over and prepared to fight Druid, who mystically ignited the phosphorus in the driver's blood, killing him and shocking Hemingway. Druid next commented that he had a task for Hemingway who, after seeing Druid kill the cab driver, promised to do anything Druid wanted and when Druid questioned why Hemingway was suddenly so loyal after calling him a "mad old cretin" earlier, Hemingway explained that Druid was now like a god. Punching Hemingway, Druid sternly reminded Hemingway that he was not a god, only the representation of the word of the ancient Celtic gods, before explaining that he wished to return to consulting on matters of the occult. Druid then offered to pay Hemingway to find and bring clients to him, which Druid would then pick based on whether or not he could either win the case or whether it would provide new magical knowledge. After giving Hemingway his orders, Druid then went for a walk until he witnessed a woman washing his own suit in the river and suspected it was warning of future unavoidable death like the washer in the story of Cuchulain. Returning to his penthouse, Druid thought about how Cuchulain had been afflicted with a geis as told by the druids and how, if he were now afflicted with a geis, Druid had no other druids to inform him what his geis was. A short time later, Druid's follower, Baby Icon, summoned him from his room to meet the potential client Hemingway had returned with. When the client, Nekra Sinclair, saw Druid, she admitted that she had suspected someone more celestial and Druid, annoyed that Hemingway had again likened him unto a god, kneed Hemingway in the stomach as punishment. Druid then introduced himself to Nekra, who informed Druid that her Cult of Kali temple had recently been plagued with some men stealing corpses for use in constructing some sacreligious. Druid then sat and listened to Nekra's story about her suspicions that the Second Assembly, a splinter group of the Dry Academy, was responsible for the thefts as Druid continued wondered to himself if offering to help people was his geis. Nekra then admitted that she had only visited Druid in hopes that he might provide some local knowledge as to the thefts but Druid, having only recently moved to New York, was unable to help with knowledge. Refusing to let filth like the Second Assembly continue to occur, Druid ordered Hemingway and Baby Icon to seek out information from their contacts.

(Druid I#3) - Druid assured Nekra that his followers and himself would locate the Second Assembly and he would wrap their innards around the great oak tree. He then suggested that while his followers acquired information about the Second Assembly's activities, Nekra could fill him in on the history of the Second Assembly. Nekra agreed, explaining to Druid how the Second Assembly had splintered off from the Dry Academy, an organization buried in Tunguska, Siberia that controlled the world by casting a spell that prevented the general populace from seeing the true horrors of the world. Angered, Druid accused Nekra of lying, shattering a table in the process, and promised to take care of the Second Assembly with their false god and then the Dry Academy with their false religion. When Hemingway returned with information that the Second Assembly was active in an old Salvation Army building in New York's Bowery, Druid announced that he would go alone, quickly taking a cab to the location, which he opened with druidic magic. Confronting the Second Assembly, Druid took down the member inside by twisting the water in his body before going further inside, where the rest of the Second Assembly resided. Warning the Second Assembly to commit suicide or face the unlovely death that awaited them at his own hands, Druid watched as one of the Second Assembly actually committed suicide. Druid then killed each of the Second Assembly members by manipulating the wood and plant matter around them before confronting the Second Assembly's false god itself. Denouncing the false god's existence as blasphemous, Druid revealed his plans to kill the "god" and when the god began telling Druid that the Dry Academy's religion was right, Druid refused to her the god's remarks and killed the false god, proclaiming him to be nothing more than an abomination and a meat puppet. Returning to his penthouse, Druid informed Nekra that the Second Assembly had been destroyed but his mission against the Dry Academy was just beginning. Nekra then asked to speak with Druid privately and his followers heard a scream from his room shortly after.

(Druid I#4) - Demanding to see what had happened, Druid's followers stormed his room to find Nekra and Druid, who was crying about being afflicted with a geis. Nekra then explained to Druid's followers that Druid's geis was to love witches and that she had actually been sent to Druid to determine Druid's destructive power and defuse him, if necessary. Nekra then revealed that she had done just that and Druid stood there, trapped by the pain of his disappearing Celtic wisdom and power. As Nekra boasted of her action against Druid, Druid himself recalled the tools near him and summoned Hemingway to his side. Druid then used a sword to sacrifice Hemingway to the three Celtic goddesses that had empowered him in hopes of regaining his lost power. The power granted, Druid's head appeared to blaze and his newfound knowledge revealed to him that while his follower Baby Icon was innocent, Redeyes had been planning to murder Hemingway as her eighteenth kill. Before Druid could sacrifice the criminal Redeyes, someone in the shadows shot her and Druid soon learned that the shooter was a member of the Dry Academy, with which Nekra had been working the entire time. Preparing to destroy the Dry Academy from afar, Druid was shot by Nekra and he managed to unleash one mystic bomb-blast that damaged the Dry Academy, forcing him to briefly see their reality as his own. Following the vision, Druid was shocked that he still possessed skin but found himself faced with Daimon Hellstrom, who explained that Druid was still dying from Nekra's gunshot wounds. Hellstrom then revealed that Nekra had actually been working for him while with the Dry Academy and that Druid's attack on the Dry Academy had failed to completely destroy them. Hellstrom then proclaimed Druid a failure and a lunatic before Druid succumbed to death.

(Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A to Z HC Vol. 3 - Dr. Druid entry (fb) - BTS) - Dr. Druid's soul was claimed by undead Avengers villain Grim Reaper.

(Avengers III#10) - During an attack on the Avengers from beyond the grave, the Grim Reaper resurrected the corpses of Dr. Druid, back in his original form, as well as past Avengers Hellcat, Thunderstrike, Captain Mar-Vell, Swordsman and Mockingbird (who was actually a Skrull impostor) as a new, brainwashed Legion of Unliving. Revealing a brainwashed Wonder Man as the final member of his Legion of Unliving, Grim Reaper unleashed the Legion against the then-current Avengers team and Druid quickly engaged Wasp, claiming that he should have been leader of the Avengers and remarking that if he had been, he would not have let members like himself die unavenged. Wasp warned Dr. Druid to stay back, not wishing to hurt him. Unfazed by Wasp's idle threats, Dr. Druid remarked that Wasp couldn't hurt him on her best day and felled her with a mind-blast before turning his attention towards the Avengers' newest member, Justice. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Druid and the Legion of Unliving had managed to take down the entire Avengers team.

(Avengers III#11) - When Scarlet Witch returned to Avengers Mansion, she found the Mansion ransacked and Dr. Druid and the Legion of Unliving holding butler Edwin Jarvis hostage. She was soon knocked out by the Legion of Unliving's Mockingbird and as she passed out, the still-brainwashed Dr. Druid informed Scarlet Witch that they had replaced the true Avengers and had taken the Mansion as their spoils. As Scarlet Witch regained consciousness, the Legion of Unliving informed her of Grim Reaper's plan to bring his pain to the living and control the world after killing the Avengers. The Legion of Unliving quipped that they had died while the Avengers had lived and Dr. Druid chimed in that they were taking back what they earned. Remaining silent during the Legion's boasts, Scarlet Witch weaved a magic hex that began restoring the brainwashed Legion's right minds and they began sensing a change in their way of thinking. After Scarlet Witch succeeded in restoring the deceased Avengers' true spirits, Dr. Druid regained his mental faculties and accompanied Wonder Man and the rest of the Legion to the Grim Reaper, who demanded to know what evil they had accomplished. The Legion revealed their true colors, however, when Thunderstrike freed Thor and Dr. Druid followed by freeing Giant-Man. Siding with the current Avengers, Dr. Druid and the Legion of Unliving fought off Grim Reaper, who summoned an army of demons to battle the Avengers. When Scarlet Witch attempted to permanently resurrect Wonder Man from afar, Wonder Man's connection to the underworld began to vanish and since he was the key to maintaining the other resurrected Avengers, Dr. Druid and the other deceased Avengers returned to the afterlife.

(X-Men Unlimited I#24/2 - BTS) - While watching archival footage of his life via computer screens, Magneto watched video of the X-Men's battle with the Avengers during Dr. Druid's tenure on the team.

(Avengers Finale - BTS) - Following a catastrophic battle between the Avengers and an insane Scarlet Witch, the surviving Avengers and Edwin Jarvis met in the remnants of Avengers Mansion and the group recalled their strongest memories of the Avengers, Jarvis recalling the time that the Masters of Evil attacked the Mansion and Dr. Druid teamed with the Avengers to take the villainous group down.

(Marvel Monsters: From the Files of Ulysses Bloodstone - BTS) - Dr. Druid's journal entry about Gorgilla made its way to Jacob Hathaway, the son of his former Explorers Club ally Stanley Hathaway. Jacob then shared Druid's entry with Mr. Fantastic of the Fantastic Four, who provided emailed additional notes about the entry, commenting that, contrary to Dr. Druid's wishes in the journal entry, Gorgilla did not remain on Midnight Mountain in Borneo and had since returned to the United States, where Mr. Fantastic ultimately shrank him to human size and in an effort to rehabilitate several formerly giant monsters. Dr. Druid's notes on the shadow Warlord Kaa also made their way to Jacob Hathaway, who wrote a small update at the bottom of the notes that noted Kaa's later encounters with both Alpha Flight and the Defenders. Dr. Druid's prior journal entry on the alien monster Manoo and his notes on the alien Blips made their way into the hands of monster hunter Elsa Bloodstone, daughter of Druid's former Monster Hunters teammate Ulysses Bloodstone, who compiled the journal entry and notes together with notes and papers on other monsters from various other sources.

(Young Avengers I#12 - BTS) - When the Young Avengers opted to create statues of fallen Avengers while also repairing some of the existing statues in the gardens around Avengers Mansion, they created a statue of Dr. Druid alongside other Avengers such as Captain Mar-Vell, Ant-Man (Scott Lang), Marrina and the Swordsman (Jacques Duquesne).

(Doctor Voodoo: Avenger of the Supernatural#5) - Dr. Druid was very briefly resurrected by a reality warp created when the demon Nightmare escaped the Dream Dimension into normal reality. Using nightmarish visions to manipulate Earth's heroes into his service, Nightmare sent Druid and numerous other heroes after Doctors Voodoo and Doom, who remained the universe's last defense against Nightmare. Dr. Druid was quickly taken down by Doctor Voodoo and Nightmare's influence was eventually erased, resetting reality back to before Nightmare's invasion and essentially returning Dr. Druid to the afterlife.

(Chaos War: Dead Avengers#1) - Following the Amatsu-Kami Chaos King's destruction of the underworld, Dr. Druid and many other deceased individuals were returned to Earth. Appearing on Earth among other deceased Avengers including Captain Marvel, Deathcry, Yellowjacket, Vision and Swordsman, Dr. Druid found himself surrounded by many of Earth's then-current heroes, who all appeared to be comatose or dead. Deathcry immediately attacked Yellowjacket, thinking Yellowjacket to be responsible for pulling her from the peaceful afterlife, and when Vision suggested Deathcry calm down and use logic, Dr. Druid cynically remarked that his faith told him that it was an affront of nature to see Vision among the restored Avengers. When Druid further commented that Vision was a synthezoid with no true life or soul, Vision sarcastically remarked on how pleasant it was to see Dr. Druid again. Captain Marvel quickly revealed that chaos had enveloped the universe and ejected the dead back on Earth with the destruction of the afterlives, having sensed the universe's cry for help with his Cosmic Awareness, and Dr. Druid soon learned from a rudimentary telepathic scan that the entire living world had been rendered comatose. When the Dead Avengers heard cries for help outside, Captain Marvel rushed to defend those under attack but Dr. Druid reminded Marvel that their time on Earth had ended and that they were not beyond concepts such as duty and desire. He then suggested the Dead Avengers not interfere with the natural order of things but the Dead Avengers nonetheless rushed into action. When Druid protested, claiming their sense of duty was pointless and stupid, Yellowjacket recalled how Dr. Druid was known to be a "$%&*" and accused Druid of being an even bigger one now that he was dead. Yellowjacket then left to help the other Dead Avengers, remarking that while she wasn't sure what her role was back on Earth but that she was sure it was not with Druid. The Dead Avengers soon realized that those they protected were also dead and the creatures attacking them were removing them from existence and when they fled with survivors, Dr. Druid levitated into the air and caused an overgrown of thorny vines to seal the Dead Avengers' escape. Captain Marvel responded by asking if Druid had changed his mind but Dr. Druid claimed sealing himself with vines was the only way to get some privacy so that he could meditate to learn what the triple goddesses would have him do next. Swordsman replied by calling Dr. Druid a twit and revealed that he had died by sheer accident and while the other Dead Avengers shared how they died, Dr. Druid informed Swordsman that his death was none of Swordsman's "damn business" before Swordsman explained how they had all been given a second chance to find a cause worth dying for. Druid and the Dead Avengers were interrupted, however, when the Grim Reaper, who announced that he had sworn fealty to the Chaos King, revealed that he summoned the Dead Avengers there so that all Avengers, living or dead, could be together.



(Chaos War: Dead Avengers#2) - Holing up in the nearby Olympus Group building on Wall Street, the Dead Avengers attempted to protect the deceased civilians and when Captain Marvel assured everyone that they would be ok, a levitating Dr. Druid cynically remarked that Marvel was doling out so much false hope that it was criminal. Druid then reminded Marvel that his assurances were dependent on reinforcements which weren't coming and Druid sternly informed Marvel that they were existing during the end times of the world, remarking that Marvel's plan only made sure that the dead would die a second time tired. When some of the dead began agreeing with Druid and questioning why they were barricading the Olympus Group building, Captain Marvel flew up to Druid and informed Druid that work helped keep the survivors off their predicament, to which Druid argued that the dead should be making peace with their gods instead of "arranging chairs on the Titanic." An angry Captain Marvel then threatened Druid, warning him to stop demoralizing the survivors, but an unafraid Druid replied that Marvel would not do anything. Druid continued levitating as Vision, Yellowjacket and Swordsman returned from outside to inform Captain Marvel on the situation. When Vision mentioned that Grim Reaper had a companion in Nekra, Druid was shocked from his meditation and asked Vision to repeat that Nekra was present and with the Reaper, but when Marvel asked why that mattered to Druid, Druid only replied "it is nothing." Druid then projected his astral self, resembling his Celtically-altered form prior to his death, to Nekra, who laughed and expressed hope that Druid was not still mad she had killed him. Claiming that she had only ushered him from one state into another, Dr. Druid's astral self kissed Nekra but Nekra shunned Druid, claiming that his love was the reason she never kept him around once she had learned what information she could from him. Nekra then informed Druid that Grim Reaper's hate was so unyielding that it drew the attention of the Chaos King, whom they had pledged to serve. Nekra then began monologuing about her ability to bring death until the other Dead Avengers attacked her and she quickly realized that Dr. Druid had done nothing more than distract her while the Dead Avengers located her. Druid then revealed that the only feelings he still truly had for Nekra were hate and that he wanted nothing more than to watch Nekra and her "idiot boyfriend" perish with the reality of reality like the maggot scum they were. Nekra responded by attacking Druid's astral self, causing intense psychic backlash to Druid's physical self and projecting Nekra's own hate into Druid's mind. While Druid was overcome with Nekra's hate, the thorny barrier he had summoned began to dissipate, allowing Grim Reaper and Nekra to get at the deceased survivors.

(Chaos War: Dead Avengers#3) - Falling to the floor overcome with Nekra's pure hatred, Dr. Druid pleaded with the Celtic triple goddesses for assistance, begging them to show him the way. Druid's naked mind was then transported to the sacred Oak Circle realm, where he hoped to initiate himself in the ways of the druid. Begging to be fully initiated in their ways, Dr. Druid was told to recite his name for his impending rebirth in the gate between life and death, nature and supernature, and when Dr. Druid recited "Anthony Ludgate," the priestess of the Oak Circle carved a third eye into Dr. Druid's forehead and pronounced that he was "Anthony Ludgate" no more, but rather, Druid, who could use his third eye to see the past and future as one. His eyes open and full awareness given, Dr. Druid awoke in the physical world thanking the triple goddesses for the insight and he quickly announced to the dead survivors that they had to protect the comatose modern Avengers at all costs. Levitating the comatose Avengers, Dr. Druid ordered the dead survivors to get the comatose Avengers to the Olympus Group building's roof and announced that he would hold off Grim Reaper and Nekra as long as possible. When one of the survivors noted the change in attitude from Dr. Druid, Druid explained that he had been wrong to oppose the Dead Avengers' attempts at helping the survivors and how he had learned that living was too precious a gift to willingly give up. Grim Reaper and Nekra soon busted into the building and Dr. Druid set himself ablaze, warning the criminal duo to stay back, as he guarded the border between life and death. Proclaiming that Grim Reaper and Nekra would not pass him, Dr. Druid stood ready as Nekra jumped into battle against him while the dead survivors got the comatose Avengers to the roof. Swordsman quickly came to Druid's aid but Druid ordered Swordsman to help the survivors, reminding him not to give up his second chance. Deathcry, dubbing herself Lifecry after having inherited Captain Marvel's Cosmic Awareness, jumped in to assist Dr. Druid, who was struck down by the Grim Reaper and eradicated from physical existence.

(Squadron Supreme IV#5 (fb) - BTS) - Upon awakening in his restored physical form, Dr. Druid noted Weirdworld's splendid lands and coral dawn and was thankful to have his body back.

(Squadron Supreme IV#4 (fb) - BTS) - Dr. Druid soon learned that his physical form would only manifest within the confines of Weirdworld after he tried to travel to Earth, only to find himself once more a corporeal being. After such trial and error, Dr. Druid decided to simply stay in Weirdworld, sending his newfound agent Modred the Mystic to Earth to act on his behalf when needed. Realizing he needed something to amplify his existing psychic powers, Dr. Druid tortured the wizard Ogeode into creating a large castle for Druid to reside in.

(Squadron Supreme IV#9 (fb) - BTS) - Upon finding the mystic Eye of Xot artifact, Dr. Druid had Ogeode construct a large crystal that mirrored the Eye of Xot to amplify his mesmerism abilities.

(Squadron Supreme IV#4 (fb) - BTS) - After having the crystal installed atop his castle, Dr. Druid mesmerizing Arkon, the crystal and magma warriors of Crystallium, the Elves of Klarn and other races of Weirdworld, eventually taking over ruling an entire kingdom on the continent. The amazon Thundra eventually opted to visit her friend Arkon in Weirdworld and learned of Dr. Druid's takeover of the kingdom there.

(Squadron Supreme IV#4) - Following an encounter between Dr. Druid's lackey Modred the Mystic and the multiversal Squadron Supreme, Modred returned to Druid with some captive Squadron Supreme members and informed him that the Squadron Supreme were vanquished within moments. Admitting his delight at Modred's success, Druid smiled and commented on how much more he preferred ruling a magical kingdom over being an Avenger or a simple Earth sorcerer whom most regarded as "the one who wasn't Dr. Strange." Modred replied that Druid had said that before and added that Druid had also remarked that he enjoyed ruling over being dead as well. Dr. Druid then mused, asking Modred if perhaps he should start calling himself king as "Doctor Druid" now seemed like an understatement, and his words awakened Nighthawk, who recognized Druid's name from his databases. When Nighthawk mentioned that Dr. Druid wasn't well liked or regarded, both Arkon and Warrior Woman wanted to attack Nighthawk but Dr. Druid calmed them, admitting that Nighthawk's accusations were true at one point. Dr. Druid then revealed to Nighthawk how he could only manifest physically within Weirdworld and Nighthawk questioned how Dr. Druid was able to mind control an entire kingdom when his databases didn't note that Druid ever had such power. Dr. Druid answered by explained that he had low-level power capable of mesmerizing a single person or small group but used a crystal atop his castle to amplify his powers enough to control the races of Weirdworld. When Nighthawk asked if Druid's power was absolute, Druid admitted that there were a few that continued to resist him such as the elf Tyndall and the amazon Thundra. Druid further revealed that anyone crossing from Earth to Weirdworld would also be enthralled by his powers and surmised that Thundra had originally brought the Squadron Supreme to Weirdworld in an attempt to overthrow Druid, hoping that since the Squadron Supreme came from different realities, they might be able to resist his power. Druid then boasted that while Thundra had been right about the Squadron Supreme being able to resist him, the group was now in disarray and no one on Weirdworld could stop him.

(Squadron Supreme IV#5) - After the surviving Thundra and Hyperion met up with Skull the Slayer, who was also unaffected by Druid's mesmerism, the group discussed why Dr. Druid had no effect on them and Skull suggested that Druid's magic was imperfect, noting that his own spent among Druid's former Shock Troop made Skull realize that imperfection was a possibility. Unaware of the rebellion growing against him and the escaping Nighthawk and Blur, Dr. Druid looked out over his kingdom and felt thankful that Weirdworld had provided him with his body, wondering if he might be nothing more than a vengeful spirit had he not been deposited in Weirdworld. Interrupted in his thoughts by Modred, Druid admitted he had been thinking about his plan to enthrall Earth and how the plan seemed to work as well with the Squadron Supreme as it might on any Avengers that might try to halt his plans. He then explained to Modred that it was time to begin Stage Two of his plan but Modred informed Druid that Stage Two would proceed without him, as he was only helping Dr. Druid in exchange for the mystic Eye of Xot artifact. Remarking that Warrior Woman would be able to assist him and assuring Modred that he was a man of his word, Dr. Druid gave Modred the artifact and wished him good fortune as Modred teleported away. Moments later, Thundra, Hyperion and Skull the Slayer stormed Dr. Druid's castle and Dr. Druid ordered the mind-controlled Magma Men to kill the heroic trio. While Thundra and Skull battled the Magma Men, Dr. Druid used an illusion of himself dissipating into a small demons to seemingly disappear from the battle, unaware that Doctor Spectrum and Hyperion were attempting to destroy the crystal amplifying Druid's powers. The group succeeded in destroying the crystal, restoring the minds of everyone enthralled by Dr. Druid. As the Squadron Supreme returned home to Earth-616, Dr. Druid, who had telepathically rendered himself invisible to the heroes present, thought about the Squadron Supreme's victory and how it was a victory for himself as well since the Squadron returned home.

(Uncanny Avengers III#6 - BTS) - After Avengers Mansion was converted into a theme hotel, only to be attacked by the Wrecker, Quicksilver and Deadpool helped clear the costumed civilians, one of which was dressed as Dr. Druid.

(Squadron Supreme IV#9 - BTS) - When Warrior Woman mentioned Modred's mystic power, Modred informed her that his newfound increase in power was due to the Eye of Xot, a gift given to him by Dr. Druid in exchange for his service, and explained that Druid had mirrored the Eye of Xot when creating the crystal that had amplified Druid's own powers.

(Deadpool IV#18 - BTS) - Deadpool asked Rogue if he had the shortest Avengers tenure ever and Rogue reminded him that he was still an Avenger, further commenting that she was pretty sure he lasted longer than Dr. Druid did as an Avenger. Deadpool followed up by asking if Dr. Druid had the power to talk to trees and if Druid had died in the line of duty but Rogue admitted she didn't remember and was only trying to make Deadpool feel better. Deadpool then remarked that comparing him to Dr. Druid did not make him feel better.

(Squadron Supreme IV#15 - BTS) - The Squadron Supreme met to discuss their future and Hyperion admitted that the team was far from supreme, having not accomplished much of anything other than liberating Weirdworld from Dr. Druid.

(Guardians of the Galaxy IV#149 - BTS) - When Ant-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy worked with the telepathic dog Cosmo, Ant-Man remarked in excitement at hearing a Russian dog in his mind and Cosmo replied that he could hear the least popular Avenger, prompting Ant-Man to comment that he thought Dr. Druid was the least popular Avenger.

Some online sources list Larry Lieber as another writer of the Tales to Astonish I#12 story alongside Stan Lee.

Dr. Druid was a character wrapped in retcons. For example, he was originally a character called "Dr. Droom" in Amazing Adventures I#1-4 & #6 with a somewhat stereotypical Asian theme (which you can see in the Dr. Droom image here). The stories in Amazing Adventures I#1-3 were eventually retconned in Weird Wonder Tales I#19-22 to be the character we all known as Dr. Druid (with the Amazing Adventures I#6 story earlier retconned to be Dr. Druid in Man-Thing I Giant-Size#3). The Amazing Adventures I#4 story was much later retconned in Marvel Universe I#4 (1998). Since all of Dr. Druid/Droom's Amazing Adventures appearances were retconned in later comics, perhaps the versions that feature "Dr. Droom" were fictional accounts published by Earth-616's Marvel Comics, similar to the Young Allies Comics from the 1940s or the early Two-Gun Kid issues, which were fictional accounts of presumably actual 616 adventures. For the purposes of this profile, I went with the retconned versions of the stories and tried to mix in as much of the original story as possible without going against the retconned version. In regards to "Dr. Droom," it should be noted that Dr. Druid's Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Master Edition profile established that "Dr. Droom" was an alias that Dr. Druid had been erroneously called as a way of retconning the use of the name and attaching it to Dr. Druid. In addition to the retconning of Druid's name and appearance, the order in which the adventures seen in the Amazing Adventures series was later retconned to occur slightly out of order from the order in which they were printed. Basically, his origin story in Amazing Adventures I#1 is first, then the story from Amazing Adventures I#4 (which is slightly retconned & seen in a flashback in Marvel Universe I#4), then Druid's adventures with the Monster Hunters (Marvel Universe series & his Marvel: The Lost Generation appearance), then Amazing Adventures I#3 (battle vs. Zamu/Zemu), #2 (battle vs. Aquaticans/Atlanteans) and then #6 (battle vs. Krogg). I went with the retconned order in Druid's History section in this profile.

Speaking of names, the 1995 Druid mini-series tried to establish that the British-born Anthony Druid's real name was "Anthony Ludgate" and that he had adopted the alias of "Anthony Druid" as a way of integrating himself in American society. Druid's later Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe entry and other stories have followed the original idea that his real name was "Anthony Druid" so for the purposes of this profile, I chose to list "Anthony Ludgate" as the alias. While at various points during Druid's history, he had been said to have been born in either Britain or the USA, his later Marvel Handbook entry simply listed his place of birth as unrevealed, which I think is the best way to look at the conflicting stories.

In regards to the retconned versions of his adventures, Dr. Droom fought Zemu, an alien from Saturn in Amazing Adventures I#3 but the retconned version of the story has Dr. Druid fighting Zamu, an alien from R'Zahn. The retconned version of the story from Amazing Adventures I#2 has Dr. Druid fighting undersea dwelling Aquaticans instead of Atlanteans. Another retcon made Dr. Druid one of the archaeologists present during the Gorgilla story in Tales to Astonish I#12, effectively retconning Dr. Druid's first appearance. This particular retcon was a little tricky, as Weird Wonder Tales I#21 reprinted the Gorgilla story with Dr. Druid replacing the story's original hero, Scotty. Later stories in the 1998 Marvel Universe series confirmed that Druid was one of the archaeologists present so this retcon allows for both Druid and Scotty to be present in the story so Dr. Druid's presence is likely slightly different than Scotty's and I chose to go with as much detail as possible for the history listing for Tales to Astonish I#12/Weird Wonder Tales I#21 without removing Scotty's involvement and still including Druid. With this in mind, the Anne that Druid knows at the beginning of Weird Wonder Tales I#21 must be a different Anne than the one Scotty is familiar with and Druid's Anne is given a subprofile here. Another retconned difference is that the retconned version of the Amazing Adventures I#4 story in Marvel Universe I#4 has the story ending somewhat differently, in which the aliens in the spacecraft were actually seen and destroyed by Druid. For the sake of inclusion, I believe that the Amazing Adventures story's ending, in which the aliens were terrified by Dr. Druid's use of the derrick into retreating off-planet, could be the official story told to the public by Jake Curtiss and the National Security Agency, who are seen in the retconned version in Marvel Universe I#4, perhaps with the help of Druid's own mesmerism powers to convince the public of what they "saw."

Speaking of dates, the Amazing Adventures stories and some flashbacks to Dr. Druid's origin story place the origin story in real time circa 1961 but the 1998 Marvel Universe shows that Dr. Druid joined the Monster Hunters at their formation, which was shown to occur after Dr. Druid's adventures that were seen in Amazing Adventures. The Monster Hunters show up again in the Marvel: The Lost Generation mini-series and the date is given as 1958, effectively retconning Dr. Druid's early Amazing Adventures/Weird Wonder Tales/Giant-Size Man-Thing adventures and his joining/founding the Monster Hunters as occurring in the late 1950s. Thanks to stories such as Avengers Spotlight I#37 and the 1995 Druid mini-series, Dr. Druid's survival into the modern era can be easily explained since he was deaged to the prime of his life in Avengers Spotlight I#37 and his body and form were altered again in Druid I#1.

Dr. Droom/Druid's inaugural story in Amazing Adventures I#1 had no credits listed but the Amazing Spider-Man: Official Index to the Marvel Universe TPB lists Stan Lee as writer, Jack Kirby as penciller and Steve Ditko as inker.

Doctor Druid had profiles in Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe I#3 (1983), Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Deluxe Edition#3 (1986), Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Master Edition#26 (1993), Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Golden Age 2004 (2004) and Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A to Z HC/TPB Vol. 3 (2008/2012).

The band of mystics teaming up during the Infinity War were called the Strange Bedfellows on the cover of Dr. Strange: Sorcerer Supreme I#46 (1992).

Dr. Druid appeared in a non-616 continuity humor story in Marvel Super Heroes III#15 (1993).

In his Squadron Supreme IV appearances, Dr. Druid noted that he had been killed in such a way that he was unable to manifest in physical form on Earth yet we had seen Dr. Druid manifest twice in physical form on Earth, once controlled by the Grim Reaper and second when the Chaos King destroyed the afterlife realms. My explanation for this is that Dr. Druid was unable to manifest PERMANENTLY in physical form, as both times he returned were only temporary, and both times, he was essentially a walking corpse rather than truly returning in his normal physical form.

Dr. Druid's eye color was shown to be all sorts of colors during his appearances, ranging from green to brown to red to blue to black. He even sometimes appear to have no visible irises at all.

CLARIFICATIONS:
Doctor Druid has no known connections to:


Anne

Anne was a friend of Dr. Druid's who was visiting Druid when Druid learned that the proposed missing link was last seen in Borneo.







--Weird Wonder Tales I#21/2

Charles

Charles was a later assistant of Dr. Anthony Druid's who pushed him to go on a talk show, commenting how big of a push it would be for Druid's newest book since occult books didn't sell as well at that time. When Druid uncovered ancient Celtic runes and witnessed a man being killed, he changed into his costume and told Charles to apologize to the talk show host for him. As Druid ran off, a shocked Charles reminded Druid of what the cancellation might do to Druid's career and life.





--Solo Avengers I#10/2

Henshaw

Henshaw was Dr. Druid's assistant during his stay at the New York Plaza Hotel. While there, Henshaw went over Dr. Druid's itinerary involving an autograph session and a talk show appearance.






--Avengers I#276


Ramu

Ramu was a servant of the Ancient One in his guise as a Tibetan lama. When the Ancient One summoned a doctor from the west and Dr. Anthony Druid arrived, Ramu informed Dr. Druid that there would be no payment for Druid's services. After Druid refused to let the lama die, Ramu explained that Druid would need to cross sacred ground to get to the lama and continued advising Druid via speakerbox as Druid made his way through the lama's monastery, avoiding being burned by hot coals and the monstrous Gorlion. Ramu then returned to the lama's side, where Druid found him and the lama after escaping the Gorlion. When the lama seemingly perished, Ramu covered the ruse by confirming the lama's death then agreed to faithfully serve Druid, whose own mystic powers were awakened by the lama. Later, when the S.S. Luxuria ocean liner disappeared, Ramu accompanied Druid to the site of the disappearance and assisted in lowering Druid into the water inside a bathysphere. Ramu was subsequently present onboard the boat when Druid emerged from the water.
