History:

(Thor the Mighty Avenger#1 (fb) - BTS) - Desmond Tucker was employed as a security guard at the Bergen War Memorial Museum, which was directed by Aubrey Fawkes.

(Thor the Mighty Avenger#1) - On duty, Tucker cheerfully greeted Jane Foster, a museum staffer specializing in Nordic history, as she rushed to see Fawkes. Later, Thor (disoriented,  banished from Asgard and seeking his hammer hidden in an urn) attacked an exhibit case, but was stopped by Tucker and another guard. Foster calmed Thor down and asked the guards to escort him civilly outside.

(Thor the Mighty Avenger#2) - Seeking Foster, the villainous Hyde attacked the museum. Tucker took Foster to safety while the other guards looked after visitors. Hiding in a dark office, Foster told Tucker of her earlier experience with the suspicious yet brutal Hyde. Tucker was alerted by phone by colleagues that Hyde was closing in on them, so he elected to take Foster to the evacuated Nordic section, arming himself with a morning star antique (spiked ball and chain), but Hyde caught up with them. Thor arrived suddenly and stopped the threat. Later, Fawkes rebuked Foster about the damage (caused by Hyde) to the museum, but Tucker clarified matters and she was excused.

(Thor the Mighty Avenger#7 (fb) - BTS) - Tucker briefly dated a woman called Chantelle.

(Thor the Mighty Avenger#7) - Slightly early for his night shift start, Tucker checked in on Jane Foster for a quick chat. He noted a box of antiques on her desk that she was about to sort. He was drawn to a ancient cup (secretly enchanted by Merlin), but was warned to wear gloves by Foster before touching any antiques. Tucker drew back immediately, then commented how dry the weather had been.

Quite a minor character, but he was drawn to Merlin's enchanted cup that sought out heroes.

While friendly toward Jane Foster, he still respectfully called her by surname, despite her requests otherwise.

In my very early days of contributing to the Appendix, my partner asked what the site was about. I said it profiled obscure and minor characters, but an example was sought. I looked down at the comic I was reading and an unnamed security guard was pictured, so I said "Like this security guard!"And so from then on, my partner quietly thought I had the odd hobby of profiling security guards in comic books. So here, at last, is a security guard!
