Lessor known Inhumans: Ransak the Reject

The son of the Inhuman, Maelstrom, and an unnamed mother who was a member of the Deviant people of Lumeria.   Although he was never exposed to the Terrigin Mists, Ransak possesses moderate super strength and enhanced speed and agility.  He is quite handsome by human standards, yet was considered repulsive and a grotesque freak by the standards of his fellow Deviants.  Tormented and abused, Ransak was forced to fight in the gladiatorial games where he faced off against the Deviant juggernaut, Karkas.   The Eternal, Thena was witness to these games.  She took pity on Ransak and teleported both him and Karkas to Olympia.  Ransak and Karkas (who had also been maltreated by the Deviants) became friends and colleagues and they had many adventures alongside the Eternals.  

Ransak first appeared in Eternals Vol. 1 #8; created by Jack Kirby

Ten Jack Kirby creations and concepts that haven’t been revisited much over the years.

I’m posting this article here, because of third position on the list - Karkas and Ransak the Reject

Karkas is a deformed but invulnerable super-genius whose intelligence allowed him to realize that there’s really no point in being evil when you’re in a world where evil routinely gets trounced by guys with magic hammers and jet boots. Reject is also deformed, in that he’s a Deviant who was deemed too handsome to be a part of their society because he looks like a normal human. Together, they rebel against their evil society, defecting to the good guys and smashing up pretty much everything that gets in their way. And the best part? They are also teens.

I think I’ve jsut found some of Marvel Universe’s oldest C-List superheroes. Okay, maybe Z-List is more appriorate, but still.

We should totally bring them back. Two teenage rebelious deviants. C’mon, imagine them trying to join JGS or Young Avengers, this would be golden.
