Sean Cassidy worked for Interpol for years before realizing his mutant powers. He has since retired with his love, Moira MacTaggert, and his own long-lost daughter, Theresa, who has sound-related powers similar to those of her father. They all live on Muir Island in Ireland. His cousin is Black Tom Cassidy, the mutant villain. Even though he and Black Tom have an enemy relationship, Black Tom did send Sean's daughter to him when her identity was discovered.
Lord John Falsworth became a vampire when he was bitten by Dracula before the first World War. During WWI, Falsworth offered his services to German Intelligence and was given the code-name Baron Blood. During the war he unknowingly came into conflict with his brother Montgomery in the guise of Union Jack.
During the decades that followed WWI, Blood served Adolf Hitler’s rise to power and again offered his services to Germany. He served the Axis during WWII as a special operative in England and elsewhere abroad.
The Thule Society has used a magical ritual to make Falsworth more powerful than a typical vampire. He can fly without changing into a bat. In addition, he can resist the harmful effects of the sun on his undead flesh.
Note: Baron Blood is slain by Union Jack II (Brian Falsworth) during WWII.

Jim Shooter relates a priceless story about the Banshee name- apparently he was with Stan Lee, who was deciding which X-Men team to "pitch" to networks for a cartoon series. He had the '60s one, and the '70s one. Stan was arguing that the '60s one was better, because you could tell which heroes had which names just by looking at them. He guessed that "Colossus" was Wolverine (it was single pictures, not the whole team- he couldn't see Logan's height), and "Banshee" was Storm. Why? "Because Banshees are women". Jim corrected him, and Stan was aghast. Then Jim pointed out that Roy Thomas created the guy.
"Not ROY!?!" came the horrified reply from Stan (who always treated Roy as a surrogate son and heir-apparent).
“Roy?!” Stan had that look of horror and incredulity you get when you discover that the guy who’s been doing your taxes can’t add or subtract.
“Roy doesn’t know banshees are female?!”

One note about Baron Blood, his Healing should have Affects Objects Only. Since he lacks a Stamina score, regular Healing won't work on him. It doesn't change the cost at all, and its a minor distinction to make, but I just thought I'd point it out.
Actually, I'm not even sure that Self Only Healing can be Linked to an attack effect. Attack effects have Close Range, and a Self Only Healing effect is essentially Personal Range. It might be better to do it as Reaction Healing, Limited to when draining blood. But that's just my opinion, after all.
