Excalibur #58 (1992) fits the bill, your villain being Alchemy. From ComicVine: Trouble on both sides! With both the Crazy Gang and the trolls that kidnapped Alchemy on the loose, can even the combined strength of Excalibur and the X-Men come out on top? As revealed in the previous issue, Alchemy was in with the trolls who used his mother as leverage ...

This is the comic you're referring to; Excalibur Vol 1 #58. Wolverine has his claws turned (temporarily) into rubber by Alchemy at the urging of a troll.

No. The MCU's plot's are inspired by the comics, but are not direct adaptations. The closest to Infinity War/Endgame is the 1991 six-issue The Infinity Gauntlet. As Wikipedia summarises: When Thanos uses his powers to kill half of the living beings in the universe, Adam Warlock leads Earth's remaining heroes against him. After the Infinity Gauntlet is ...

DC published a story that is similar to this, but it is not a Superman story. In nr 38 of Tales of the Unexpected (1956) the second story was called Dissection of planet Earth. It was about an inventor called Rod, living in the far future of 2026. Rod and his friend Clay had just tested his latest invention, a spray that makes everything super magnetic, ...

In the Avengers Assemble episode "Savages" (Season 1, episode 17) Tony Stark has "Stone armour" which he used to fight dinosaurs. This armour didn't have rocket thrusting boots and was literally a martial arts suit. It came from Captain America challenging Tony to go without his tech for a full day.

In the 616 (comics) universe, his first two armours (the MK I & MK II) had air-pressure boot jets. The MK II was considered to have limited flight, but the MK I was considered to power extended jumps as opposed to flight. All subsequent 'main' armours, had flight capabilities. There are many specialist armour to consider though and it's not always ...

I found it thanks to a reddit user by the username superschaap81 ! The creature in question was Subjekt-17 and the issue is Superman 654-658.

I believe this is Marvel Adventures: The Avengers #26 It's the bottom of the ninth, the Avengers are down by two, two strikes down and bases loaded. The stakes for the Cosmic Pennant have never been higher. How will Galactus call this one? Okay... we admit. We have no idea what's going on in this story. Kirk drew the cover, and now Parker has to come up ...

The closest we have are some quotes from Infinity War: Vision describes the Mind Stone to some extent: Vision: No, we have to destroy it. I've been giving a good deal of thought to this entity in my head, about its nature. But also, its composition. I think if it were exposed to a sufficiently powerful energy source, something, very similar to its ...

In the comic Thanos Quest #2, we learn that the Collector has subjected his gem (the Reality Stone) to considerable scientific study. Although he was unable to detect the underlying power that the stone represents, he was able to ascertain what material it's comprised of. Nothing more than "a worthless hunk of polished glass".

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, I think you refer to the episode 21 or 22, the main plot seems similar, but its revealed later in the anime https://myanimelist.net/anime/2001/Tengen_Toppa_Gurren_Lagann

While the Groot character was first introduced only five years after Lord of the Rings was first published, there does not seem to be any nod to fantasy. Rather, the character seems to originally have been more of a sci-fi monster "from outer space". (check out this sweet cover) Great Atlas monsters were also retconned to be major players in Earth-616’...

The name is Warlands: Age of Ice (2003). From Goodreads: Warlands is set in a sword-and-sorcery world inhabited by humans and a variety of mythical races, caught up in an endless series of wars against evil forces. In this volume, a woman from the past returns to tell the heroes they must continue the fight to save the world. Although the great ice ...

Alliteration has been common in literature for a long time. It was used by Chaucer and so on, and apparently back to the Greeks. I'm aware of it at least since Shakespeare led me up the "primrose path". http://www.shakespeare-online.com/literaryterms/alliteration.html Alliterative character names were used, for instance by Dickens Nicholas Nickleby Clara ...
