Supergiant is a supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

Publication history[edit]

Supergiant first appeared in Infinity #1 (October 2013) and was created by Jonathan Hickman and Jerome Opeña.[1]

Fictional character biography[edit]

Supergiant is a member of Thanos' Black Order. She is a mentally unstable omnipath and telepathic parasite who seeks out intellect to devour.[2]

In the search for Thanos' son Thane during the Infinity storyline, Supergiant and Corvus Glaive laid siege to the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning and easily defeated the X-Men. They left after realizing that Thane was not there.[3]

When the Black Order seized Wakanda, Supergiant was left in control of Black Bolt who she would mentally order to activate the Illuminati's hidden bombs in Wakanda's Necropolis.[4] When the Illuminati arrived to save Black Bolt, Supergiant used Black Bolt's ability to defeat the heroes. Upon activating the bomb, Supergiant was faced by Maximus who had the trigger. Maximus triggered the bomb, but also used Lockjaw to transport Supergiant along with the bomb to a distant uninhabited planet where she perished in the explosion.[5]

During the "No Surrender" arc, Supergiant came back as a psychic projection, along with the rest of the Black Order, thanks to the Challenger who had set them up against Grandmaster's Lethal Legion.[6] During the battle in Antarctica, the Black Order retreat after Corvus Glaive is killed. Supergiant stays to take control of Thor, but is dissipated by Lethal Legion member Ferene the Other.[7]

Powers and abilities[edit]

Supergiant has telepathic abilities that allow her to mind-control anyone and feed on their intellect.
