Marduk (01 - Sumerian God)
Real Name:
Search for 'Marduk (01 - Sumerian God)' on Amazon


Powers:
Marduk was likely always quite powerful, perhaps on the level of the other Godheads, such as Zeus or Odin. He was perhaps initially a warrior god, like Thor, but later gained power from Anu, making him more like Thor with the Odin-power.
He has been described as having four eyes and four ears, and could emit fire from his mouth when he speaks. He formerly rode a storm-chariot driven by Slayer, Pitiless, Racer, and Flyer, poison-toothed, tireless steeds. He was also gifted in magic.
When first seen, his powers had diminished to the point (perhaps from lack of worship over the years), that Thor overpowered him without much of a struggle. After this point, Thor drained his powers, leaving him close to a human in ability, although he retained his immunity to aging and conventional disease.
Marduk either gained or retained the ability to steal the soul at any point in the future of any mortal with whom he came into direct contact.


Bio:
Marduk was the god of wisdom and the sun in Sumerian mythology. His priests gained the Book of the Vishanti and kept it guarded by a large griffin.

For unknown reasons Marduk began to decline in power. He attacked the Asgardians seeking to take their power for his own, but was defeated by Thor. Stripped of most of his power, he went to Earth.

Marduk began various schemes, posing as curator Zoltan Nestor. He met and manipulated Destroyer (Roger Aubrey) to keep the V-Battalion from uncovering his schemes.

Marduk took over Oracle Inc after its acquisition by Stark-Fujikawa. He began pouring its resources into Flag-Smasher's group ULTIMATUM. Marduk hoped to cause massive loss of life and absorb the souls of the fallen combatants, restoring him to his former power. When Aubrey interfered he took his soul. Citizen V (John Watkins III) battled Marduk, learning that the Genesis Well continually revived Marduk. Watkins overloaded the machines, apparently destroying Marduk.
