Explanation of the conversion: I decided to have Malefactor's big energu blast be a magical spell, not part of his armor because it saved points. It wasn't too clear in the comic which is was anyway. The Distinctive Feature Adept is from the Mystic Masters book. It means he's a magic user who is instantly recognized by other magic users as such. His brother Bravado has it too, which is how Malefactor was able to so easily spot him.

What If II #114 History: After the Beyonder died the heroes and villains he had brought to Battleworld were stranded there. A few years later Thor and the Enchantress had a son, and named him Balder Blake. The Enchantress eventually left Thor for Doctor Doom, fathering him a son named Vincent. Balder and Vincent grew up as rivals. Their mother taught them both Asgardian magic, but Balder wasn't as proficient in it as Vincent was. Since Balder was a full god and not half, he was physically more powerful, which Vincent resented.

Vincent was trained by his father and came to admire the dictators of Earth's past. He killed his father in order to take him place. Taking the name Malefactor he decided to take over Battleworld, and sought minions to aid him in his quest. He gained the support Klaw, Gator, Raze, Chokehold and Moleculon. Although he invited his half brother to join him, Balder turned him down. Balder then vowed to oppose Malefactor and did so as Bravado, along side Crusader III, Firefly, Torrent and Mustang.

During the battle over control of the planet the old heroes were confronted with armies of Doombots at Malefactor's control, while the new heroes took on Malefactor and his minions. Doctor Doom then returned, having faked his death and took Malefactor for punishment. Fighting ceased when the Hulk returned and put an end to it.

Powers: Malefactor is half human and half Asgardian god, and as such is very physically fit for a boy his age, but not superhumanly so. He knows a great deal of Asgardian magic from his mother.
