Human Nova

Human Nova (Richard Lincoln) is an Amalgam of Marvel Comics' Nova and DC Comics Human Bomb. Richard Lincoln and his father were working on an experimental explosive derived from fuel from an alien spacecraft from the planet Xandar. When the fluid detonated, Richard was covered in volatile chemicals and gained the ability to cause objects to explode with a touch. But his new powers put too much strain on Richard and he went into a coma. While in the hospital, Richard was contacted telepathically by Garthan Colos of Xandar, a member of the NovaStar Corps, who pulled Richard out his coma. Garthan teleported a modified NovaStar battlesuit suit to Richard to contain his powers. With the suit not only allowing him control his explosive energy, but also giving him super-strength and the ability to focus his powers into concussive blasts and fly, Richard became the Human Nova. Human Nova was later invited to join the Freedom Defenders.
