The Alliance of Evil is the name of a fictional group of supervillains in the Marvel Comics.


The Alliance of Evil was once Apocalypse's personal strike force, and carried out his bidding. Their first mission was to find and capture Michael Nowlan, a mutant with the ability to heighten other mutants' powers. When Nowlan tried to leave, they kidnapped his girlfriend, Suzy, to use as bait. X-Factor found Nowlan and vowed to protect him. When the Alliance traced him down, they threatened Suzy to make him power them up. The Alliance fought and defeated X-Factor, bringing Nowlan back to their master. X-Factor eventually found their hideout, and on Apocalypse's orders Nowlan powered up the Alliance again. When Suzy tried to escape, Stinger's bolts accidentally kill her. Nowlan killed himself, and Apocalypse abandoned the Alliance of Evil and escaped.

Much later, the Alliance of Evil caused a commotion over the Mutant Registration Act. X-Factor saw them on the news and immediately attacked the Alliance. They were defeated by X-Factor and taken into custody by Freedom Force.

The group, minus Timeshadow, later encountered the New Mutants, along with Harness and Piecemeal. They were defeated, and when questioned later, Frenzy admitted to being hired by A.I.M. to bodyguard Harness and Piecemeal. She was then dropped out of a helicopter.

The group eventually disbanded. Frenzy went on to join the ranks of Magneto's Acolytes and later the X-Men themselves, Tower was killed by the X-Cutioner, Stinger was seen befriending Iceman on the X-Men's home island of Utopia, and Timeshadow have not been seen since.

  • Harness (Erika Benson) - Erika Benson was the mother of Gilbert Benson, the mutant boy named Piecemeal who merged with the resurrected Proteus. She had been employed by A.I.M. to take Piecemeal around the world, absorbing all of the ambient energy of Proteus in their effort to recreate him. Harness fought various members of the X-Teams when they were attempting to stop A.I.M.'s plan. She was taken into custody after the death of her son.
  • Piecemeal (Gilbert Benson) - son of Harness


  • Frenzy (Joanna Cargill) - field leader of the Alliance, a super-strong mutant with steel-hard skin and resistance to temperature extremes. At first glance, she seems like your typical strongwoman, but she is actually quite intelligent. She later went on to join Magneto and his Acolytes, and eventually mind-controlled to join the X-Men. She had returned to the Acolytes after Exdous reformed the group, having retained her mutant powers, but now resides on Utopia.
  • Tower (Edward Pasternak) - a mutant with the ability to increase his size and strength. He is probably the most reckless out of the group, and isn't very bright. Tower was killed by the mutant-hunting X-Cutioner. Resurrected by Selene.
  • Stinger (Wendy Sherman) - a young valley girl with electricity control. Recently seen on Utopia.
  • Timeshadow - who had the mutant power to phase into time, allowing himself to teleport in a way, or appear to be in several places at once. His current status and whereabouts are unknown.
  • Michael Nowlan - who was captured and forced to "join". Currently deceased.
