Skull the Slayer (James Patrick Scully) is a fictional Marvel Comics character that debuted in his own book in August, 1975. Skull the Slayer is a trained soldier turned superhero who wears a Scorpion power belt that enhances his strength and durability. The belt also has preservative effects on his body's metabolism. On one occasion, Scully was able to funnel energy into explosive force. The full capabilities of the belt are unknown.
Jim Scully was an adventurer whose plane went through a time warp in the Bermuda Triangle, marooning him and three companions in an alternate Earth where dinosaurs, primitives, and aliens co-existed. Scully and his three companions were eventually rescued and returned to their own world by the Thing of the Fantastic Four. He served in Doctor Druid's team of occult investigators the Shock Troop alongside Sepulchre and N'Kantu, the Living Mummy. Skull the Slayer found his way back to the alternate earth as the member of a prospecting expedition, along with Lee Forrester, and sent a message back to our earth asking to be saved. The Future Foundation found the message buoy and contacted the X-Men (since Forrester, who had recorded the message, had specifically asked for Cyclops and Magneto), and the two teams travelled through the portal to the other world. The heroes discovered that time passes differently in the new realm and the survivors had experienced three years passing since the buoy had been launched. After an invasion attempt by the alien Emperor against both groups' native Earth was thwarted by the efforts of the heroes, Skull and Lee, who had fallen in love with each other, decided to stay behind and safeguard two artifacts which would ensure peace between the alternate Earth's tribes.
Aleytys "Lee" Forrester is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Her first appearance was in Uncanny X-Men #143. Forrester is a resident of Florida and the captain of the fishing trawler, Arcadia. Cyclops of the X-Men, a.k.a. Scott Summers, hires himself aboard the Arcadia during a leave of absence. Lee is targeted by the supernatural being D'Spayre after her father, Jock, commits suicide over the loss of his wife. D'Spayre is defeated by Cyclops and D'Spayre's principal enemy, the Man-Thing.
Scott and Lee engage in a brief romantic relationship. They are shipwrecked on an island inhabited by Magneto in the Bermuda Triangle, and Magneto reveals Scott's identity as Cyclops to her. Lee eventually breaks off their relationship, claiming she doesn't want to become involved in the X-Men's dangerous lives,but becomes sexually intimate with Magneto after she rescues him from a shark attack. However, she and Magneto drift apart when duty compels him to become headmaster of Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. After this, she becomes interested in Cable, but does not pursue it after she learns that he is the son of Cyclops, from the future.
Lee returns years later as the skipper for an expedition force which, after sailing through a dimensional warp within the Bermuda Triangle, is stranded in an alternate Earth, the same one the adventurer James Scully (who had been hired to join the expedition as a guide) once traveled to. After three years, the only three surviving members - Stanislaus, Forrester and Scully - send a message buoy through the dimensional rift which brought them to this world. It is found by the Future Foundation, with whom the X-Men team up and travel to the alternate world to retrieve the stranded. However, it had only been days for the Earth-based heroes as time passes much differently in the dimension Lee and the others were in.
In the meantime, Lee came into contact and successfully negotiated with an unpredictable local tribe, the Taddak, for their alliance against the more hostile tribes under the leadership of the alien Emperor. In the struggle which follows, Lee and Skull secure two artifacts which maintain the delicate balance between the tribes of this Earth. In the time they spent here, the two fell in love with each other, so Lee refuses the X-Men and the Future Foundation's offer to return to her native Earth, instead staying with Skull and safeguarding the two artifacts
Lucas Bishop is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, particularly titles associated with the X-Men. He first appears as a member of Xavier's Security Enforcers (initially called the Xavier School Enforcers), a mutant police force from a dystopian future of the Marvel Universe. He travels to the 20th century and joins the X-Men, a team he knew only as legends. An example of 1990s anti-authority antiheroes, Bishop experiences difficulty adjusting to the norms of the time period. In the mid-2000s, Bishop took on an antagonistic role over the course of several storylines. Bishop's mutant ability enables him to absorb all forms of radiant or conductive energy that are directed towards him and to release that energy from his body. This power is passive, allowing Bishop to absorb energy at all times.
He can release this energy in many different forms, usually as concussive blasts of biokinetic energy, even amplified compared to the absorbed amount. Bishop can also store absorbed energy within his personal reserves, whereupon the energy increases his strength and recuperative abilities, as well as affording him a measure of invulnerability.

A cowardly young man, Bob was persuaded into joining the criminal organization Hydra by his wife, Allison, who accused him of not being able to hold a steady job. The thought of a stable career with a dental plan also appealed to Bob, though he was disappointed to find out Hydra does not offer full dental like Advanced Idea Mechanics (AIM). During Deadpool's assault on Hydra to rescue the captured Agent X, he ran into Bob and coerced Bob into helping him. Bob was hesitant, as Hydra would not allow him back into the organization after having betrayed them, but Deadpool, at the time four inches tall, tortured him with a security card until he relented. He then forced Bob to fly them to safety in one of Hydra's jets, though Bob did not know how to pilot an aircraft.

Skull the Slayer has been safeguarding two artifacts that ensure peace between the alternate Earth's tribes on an alternate Earth where dinosaurs, primitives, and aliens co-existed. Suddenly, Skull the Slayer realizes that’s he’s a fictional character who has been forgotten by comic book fans. Skull the Slayer has new meta powers and can break the forth wall just like another hero.

Skull the Slayer has returned to the Marvel Universe with a bang. Skull the Slayer gains the attention of Hydra and it’s leader Baron Wolfgang von Strucker who wants to learn the secrets of Skull the Slayer’s meta powers to use them for evil.
Due to the threat of Hydra, Skull the Slayer hires four super powered bodyguards to protect him. These four just happen to also be famous Marvel characters Bishop, Darkhawk (Christopher Powell), Ulik, and Mike Storm.
Additionally, Skull the Slayer is in a feud with Deadpool. Due to their abilities to break the forth wall they are evenly matched.
