      Nova


      Nova was created by Marv Wolfman and John Buscema in 1976. He
      first appeared in his own title series "Nova" which ran for 25
      issues, since then he has starred in 3 other short lived Marvel
      series and has also been a founding member of the New warriors.
      Nova who real name is Richard Rider was chosen Rhonmann Dey, a
      Dieing alien who was the last suviving member of the Nova force, a
      universe spanning poice force started and powered by the planet
      Xandar.
      Dey gave Rider his powers and soon after Richard Rider became
      Nova "the human rocket", he gained the ablity to fly, superhuman
      streanght and invulnrability. Nova used his powers to fight for good
      on earth, coming into contact with villians such as the condor, and
      his reocurring foe the Shinx. soon after recieving his powers nova
      was summoned to the planet Xandar to defend it against an invasion
      from the alien shapshifters the skrull. After the Skrulls were
      defeted Nova was asked to stay and help rebuild Xandar and the nova
      force, but after being away from earth for a while Richard decided to
      give up his nova powers and return to earth as a normal human.
      After serveral months a young hero looking to form a teen
      rimefighting team dropped Rider off of a roof, hoping that his powers
      would return if he was faced with real danger. Night thrashers idea
      worked and richard Rider was once again the hero called nova. Nova
      joined Night thrashers team called the new warriors, but nova still
      holding a grudge against night thrasher for dropping him off a roof
      caused many agruements amonst them and eventully noght thrasher left
      the team. The new warriors disbanned and reformed a couple of time in
      the next couple of years and nova stayed with his friends until he
      was asked to return to Xandar.
      upon his return to Xandar the Annihillation wave hits our universe
      and destroyed the entire nova corps except for Rider who was able to
      escape. With Xandor now destroyed and the Nova corps gone the
      Xandarian worldmind (the comuter who gave all corps men thier powers
      downloaded all of thier power into Rider so that he may restart the
      corps. Nova still realing from the destruction of Xandor and his
      comrads decided to use the exrta power to destroy the annihilation
      wave. He was made leader of the united front, a mix of alien races
      and hero's who banded together to stop the annihilation wave and
      eventually with the help of the kree, ronan, superskrull and other
      was able to kill annihilus and won the war.

        Wildcat

        Wildcats first appearance was in Sensation comics # 1 in January 1942
        and he was created by Bill Finger and Irwin Hasen. As a young boy
        Ted Grant was orphaned and was taken in by a sinister man who along
        with his mentor "socker" smith trained Ted to be a world class
        heavyweight boxer. Unknowing to Ted his managers filled a glove of
        his with a poisoned needle to slow down Ted's opponent, but the 2
        misjudged the dosage and the boxer died. The police arrest Ted grant
        thinking he was the one who placed the poisoned needle into his
        glove. Meanwhile his 2 managers decided that Ted may know too much
        and ordered a hit on him. The squad car in which Ted was being
        transported was ambushed and everyone except for Ted was killed. Now
        on the run from the law and vowing to clear his name Ted created a
        costume and mask and called himself Wildcat. Wildcat confronted his
        ex-managers and forced them to confess for their crimes and clear Ted
        Grant of murder. Wildcat continued to fight crime and was a
        founding member of the Justice Society of America as well as the All
        star squadron. Were he fought criminals and saved lives for decades.
        During the crisis on infinite earths Ted's legs were shattered by the
        Red tornado, who was out of control. Ted was told that he would never
        walk again Ted refused to let wildcat "die" though and soon he
        discovered he had a goddaughter who took up his wildcat persona for
        her own and became wildcat 2, but she would not live very long to
        continue his legacy.
        Dispite being told he would never walk again Ted did recover and once
        again rejoined a newly reformed JSA as they entered a state of limbo
        to save the world. After a few years Ted along with the other members
        of the JSA were released from the other dimension and reclaimed their
        titles as earths first hero's.
        Recently Wildcat has claimed to gained a magical power of nine lives,
        which over the years has allowed him to recover from injuries that a
        normal person would not. The most recent development though is Ted's
        discovery of his son. A young man who can for no understandable
        reason has the ability to change into a panther type form. After
        their reunion Ted offers his son a spot on the JSA to train him
        properly.
