History: (Unbeatable Squirrel Girl II#6 (fb) – BTS) – Shannon Sugarbaker, a wealthy Southern heiress and billionaire, grew obsessed over the years with authentic cosplay. She remembered her father always telling her that "if you want something done right, you best do it yourself." She collected as many authentic costumes and weapons as possible, including items from Captain America, Cyclops, Iron Man, the Green Goblin, Hawkeye, Tigra, the male Thor, the female Thor, the frog Thor and more. Eventually, the love of her life, Claude, left her, unable to handle her obsession. Wanting to focus on hunting, Shannon built a preserve then she purchased recommissioned Doombots to hunt, but it was no fun so she instead turned them into her security force. She dressed the Doombots as Sandman, Dr. Octopus and Electro for fun. Realizing the best prey would be anthropomorphic animals, Shannon hired Kraven the Hunter to bring her Howard the Duck. She then acquired Rocket Raccoon, the Beast and Weapon II.
(Howard the Duck II#6 (fb) – BTS) – To spite Claude, Shannon kidnapped his cat Biggs and then had him transformed into a cyborg, She then placed Biggs in her prison, planning to hunt him as well.
(Unbeatable Squirrel Girl II#6) – Kraven brought Howard to Shannon's home, where she fired a repulsor ray from an Iron Man gauntlet at Howard for fun then explained that she planned to hunt him. Squirrel Girl attacked, having arrived to rescue Howard, defeating the Doombots before crashing through the ceiling. Shannon ordered Kraven to hunt Squirrel Girl but he refused, so she used repulsor rays, web-shooters and an enhanced hammer to defeat both Squirrel Girl. She then convinced Kraven to go with the others willingly into the hunting grounds.
(Howard the Duck II#6) – Shannon warned her captives that she would let them go free if they could make it to the southern gate. Equipped with rocket boots, wings and repulsor blasters, as well as replicas of Captain America's shield and Thor's hammer, Shannon began hunting the others, attacking them one at a time, soon apprehending Kraven, Weapon II, Beast, Rocket and Biggs before discovering that Squirrel Girl and Howard the Duck had snuck back into her home. Howard found Shannon's stack of weapons and put on a spare suit of armor, soon attacking her as she was ready to start killing her captives. Shannon was soon defeated, overwhelmed by the various heroes, and they departed, leaving her mansion on fire. She was presumably arrested.
Comments: Created by Ryan North, Chip Zdarsky, Erica Henderson and Joe Quinones.
It seems like more
than a coincidence that the southern belle Shannon's last name was
"Sugarbaker" and the name of the interior design company in the
television show "Designing Women," set in 1980s Atlanta, Georgia, was
called "Sugarbaker & Associates." The show starred Dixie Carter as
Julia Sugarbaker and Delta Burke as Suzanne Sugarbaker. --Proto-Man
