After chatting with a fellow OPL co-worker, I was informed that the term "Juggernaut" has a double meaning. According to Marvel comics there is a villain called "The Juggernaut." This post is a Tribute to "The Juggernaut." My inner nerd unleashed.
The Juggernaut (Cain Marko) is a fictional character that appears in publications published by Marvel Comics. The character first appeared in X-Men #12 (July 1965), and was created by writer Stan Lee and artist/co-plotterJack Kirby.
Debuting during the Silver Age of Comic Books the character has appeared in over four decades of Marvel publications, featuring prominently in the X-Men titles and starring in two one-shot solo publications.
The character debuted as an antagonist of the titular mutant superhero team in X-Men #12-13 (July-Sept. 1965). In the first of these issues, he rampaged unseen throughout the X-Men's headquarters as the team's leader, Professor X, related the character's origin in flashbacks. After an initial defeat the following issue, the Juggernaut returned inX-Men #32-33 (May–June 1967), then fought the sorcerer Doctor Strange in Doctor Strange #182 (Sept. 1969), X-Men member the Beast in Amazing Adventures #16 (Jan. 1973), and the Hulk in The Incredible 'Hulk #172 (Feb. 1974).
After the canceled X-Men returned in the mid-1970s, the Juggernaut returned to fight a new iteration of the team in X-Men #101-103 (Oct. 1975 - Feb. 1976). Storylines in Spider-Woman #37-38 (April & June 1981) and The Amazing Spider-Man #229-230 (June–July 1982) explored the Juggernaut's relationship with allyBlack Tom Cassidy. The X-Men and Spider-Man proved to be regular foes for the character, who appeared in Uncanny X-Men #183 (July 1984), Marvel Team-Up#150 (Feb. 1985), and Uncanny X-Men #194 (June 1985). The Juggernaut guest-starred in Secret Wars II #7 (Jan. 1986), battled a new generation of mutants in X-Men #217-218 (April–June 1987), appeared in a flashback story in Marvel Saga #21 (Aug. 1987), and in a humorous episode in Excalibur #3 (Dec. 1988).
