Added DiffLines:

* DifferentlyPoweredIndividual: Harbingers, which are the functional equivalent of {{Mutant}}[=s=]. However, they rarely possess any kind of outward deformities since they are anatomically the same as ordinary humans and their powers are psionic in origin.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Necromancer}}: Master Darque, his sister Sandria and (on the good side) Nettie and Dr. Mirage among others. Necromantic energy is a form of psionic energy released by living things when they die. Humans release more than animals, and of course Harbingers release a lot more than humans. Certain kinds of psychics can sense and channel this power to perform "magic".

...Until 1993, when Valiant did an ill-thought-out crossover with Creator/{{Image|Comics}} called ''ComicBook/{{Deathmate}}''. Valiant's professionalism clashed brutally with Image's notorious ScheduleSlip, and Valiant and Image's writers had no clue how to write the other company's characters. Both companies saw their reputations in tatters. ''Deathmate'' is widely believed to have been the straw that broke the comic book industry's back, setting off [[UsefulNotes/TheGreatComicsCrashOf1996 the comics crash]] that the industry is still recovering from.
