The name or term "Mask" refers to more than one character or idea. For a list of other meanings, see Mask (disambiguation).

Masks are the specialized weapons of M.A.S.K. and V.E.N.O.M.. Developed by Project Spectrum, each Mask has a unique power and grant their wearer special abilities. The names of each Mask also serves as their wearer’s personal codename.

Notes[edit]

  • The prototype Masks seen in the M.A.S.K.: Revolution one-shot have the same designs as their 1985 M.A.S.K. counterparts.
  • Some of the Masks received new names or powers differing from the 1985 versions:
    • Brad Turner’s "Eclipse" is actually based on his original "Hocus-Pocus" Mask, borrowing the name "Eclipse" from a different Mask worn by Turner.
    • Julio Lopez’s "Gulliver" is visually based on his traditional "Streamer" Mask, but has the name and power of the "Gulliver" mask originally worn by Calhoun Burns.
    • Vanessa Warfield’s "Ice Queen" is visually based on her original "Whip" mask, but with a new name and power.
    • Bruno Sheppard’s "Thunderflame" was originally called "Magna-Beam," and now has the power of Cliff Dagger's "Torch" Mask.
  • Miles Mayhem's Mask was first identified by name in M.A.S.K. issue 3 as "Python" the name of one of Mayhem's alternate Masks from the original series, but later referred to as "Viper" in issue 5, which it is visually based on. It doesn't help that the Mask has the powers of both Viper's and Python's powers from the 1985 series.
  • Cliff Dagger's Mask has not yet been named on-panel. For wiki purposes, we've decided call it by its original designation.
