Top Row, L-R:
Amalgamation Of: Man-Beast + Cheetah
Real Name: Barbara Carpenter
Biography: Decades ago, in England, a scientist named Herbert McIntyre had perfected a device capable of accelerating the process of evolution. After creating several humanoid animals, McIntyre was chastised for creating human-animal abominations, so he eventually left Earth for a new world, becoming the villain known as the Evolutionary Triumph (High Evolutionary + Triumph). Meanwhile, his humanoid animals were driven from London and made their way to the base of a mountain in Eastern Europe, where a cult that worshiped the dark god Urtzkartaga once roosted, to make their new home. Years later, tourists accidentally stumbled upon the beast-men's home and alerted the nation's military to them. The soldiers slaughtered them, but the tourists found an infant amongst the ruins, a female capable of passing off as human, and they adopted her. In the USA, Barbara Carpenter grew up to be an archaeologist, but she accidentally discovered her powers when she was attacked. That night, the dark god Urtzkartaga revealed her true parentage to her, man-beasts that once worshiped him, and that they performed a ritual sacrifice to make her human. The spell was wearing off, so now Barbara's cat-human form was revealing itself. If she wants to live the rest of her life in the human world, she will follow Urtzkartaga's commands. Those commands include taking revenge on the immortal warrior who stripped him of his power and bannished him to the abyss... Thorana the Thunder Woman! As Havoc, Barbara battled the Thunder Woman, but lost every time. Urtzkartaga would later strip Havoc of her powers, though not her cat-like appearance, and give them to one Sebastian Carracus (Esteban Carracus + Sebastian Ballestros) to kill Thunder Woman; Barbara then killed Sebastian and regained her powers and Urtzkartaga's favor.

Amalgamation Of: Absorbing Man + Cyborgirl
Real Name: Charles Creel
Biography: Charles Creel was a former boxer who turned to leg breaking for a street gang. When a new drug was introduced that gave normal people random superpowers (really a magic potion created by Cerki [Loki + Circe] to create an army to destroy her sister Thunder Woman), Creel's gang became the main trafficker for the drug. Thunder Woman managed to help the police defeat the gang and create a cure for the drug and the powers. Creel escaped from prison, using his ball-and-chain shackle as a weapon, and retreat back to their last hiding place for the drug. He took too much of the drug in a bid to destroy Thunder Woman, and the side-effects destroyed his body. Scientists implanted him with a cybernetic system that can help him replicate his remaining healthy cells and reconstruct his body, but the remnants of the drug mess up the system and made him into a half-man, half-machine. Charles decided to use his new powers, including the ability to change his flesh and machine parts into whatever material he touches, to become a gang leader in his own right. As the Absorborg, Charles became a recurring nemesis of Thunder Woman, and also started dating a fellow supervillainess, Enorma.
Powers: Above-average strength/stamina/durability; his flesh and machine parts can duplicate the properties of any material he touches (wood, stone, crystal, ect.); his ball-and-chain weapon can also change properties, since he was in contact with it when he drank to much of Cerki's potion; he can duplicate the metal of his weapon, but not the metal of his cyborg parts.

As the evil Psycurse, Hayden initially used the Mask to drain the emotions of others to fuel elemental magic, but then he discovered that he could reverse it and drain natural energy from around him to mentally manipulate others.

Thunder Woman, who was exiled from her home of Themsgard (Asgard + Themyscira) for wanting to protect the other nations of Earth, caught the battle between her friends and Psycurse, and she bound the head of her Enchanted Flail in iron to damage the mask and end the villain's reign of terror. Hayden would later break out of jail and strike a deal with the evil Queen Curse (Kurse + Queen Clea): she would repair the Mask of Ancient Winters and he would help her take over Themsgard. Queen Curse killed Malcolm when it was certain that she was in control, but Thunder Woman returned to her world to dethrone her. However, Psycurse returned from apparent death to harness the negative energies during a massive battle between the heroes of Earth and the evil Black Dragon (Dragon of the Moon + Black Adam), but Black Dragon shoved his Mask through his face, killing Malcolm for reals this time.
