Mantra (02 - Lauren Sherwood)
Real Name: Lauren Sherwood
Search for 'Mantra (02 - Lauren Sherwood)' on Amazon


Bio:
Following the Black September event, the Marvel-led Malibu began publication of a second volume with a new Mantra, removing the magic from Eden/Lukasz and casting it onto a minor character from the first series named Lauren Sherwood, a young blonde woman Marvel hoped would be more enticing to readers (writers and artists complained of editor-mandated semi-nude scenes being inserted after the original art was completed). The series lasted only 7 issues, after a backlash from the original series' fans led to a general exodus of its readership.

Before the second volume of the series was released rumours and speculation surrounded much of the Ultraverse and how it would interact, if at all, with the Marvel Universe. A piece of promotional art was released showing the Eden Blake Mantra in a group shot with the Fantastic Four, merging the universes much like the latter Amalgam Comics did with Marvel and DC Comics a few years later. In this Four, member Ben Grimm wasn't stuck in the orange rock body of The Thing, but instead as Mantra. Though the rendition of Mantra in the art was much less feminine and more butch and muscular, though in the pages of the Ultraforce/Avengers crossover she was rendered in the usual familiar feminine manner.
