» Rick Jones
Appeared in: Issues #0 - 30, 32
Rick Jones has been tied to some of the biggest events to take place on
Earth and in the universe. He was inadvertently responsible for the creation of
the Hulk, helped form the Avengers, was a sidekick to Captain America, was
molecularly bonded to the original Captain Marvel, and was the first human to
exhibit the Destiny Force.
His life became entwined with Genis' during the Destiny War when he was
severly injured and a future Genis had to merge himself with Rick in order to
save his life. When Rick returned to the present he was bonded with the
current-day Captain Marvel.
At first neither Rick nor Genis were happy with their situation but they're
learning to live with it. Actually, thanks to Genis, Marlo and him have gotten
back together. He was turned old and lost an arm in a battle with the death god
Walker, and became filled with extreme self-pity. He was seemingly returned to
his normal age by the Supreme Intelligence, but prefers to think of it as a
miracle, and has taken a new outlook on life.
He was then transported to two possible futures where he met two versions of
himself. A middle-aged power-hungry Rick who called himself Thanatos and wanted
to become the template for all Rick Jones throughout the multiverse; and an
elderly Rick who had collected tons of superhero memorabilia. The elderly Rick,
using Thor's hammer and the Destiny Force, was able to defeat Thanatos, and
turned him into a brick.
Rick and Genis were returned to the present and, thanks to a device Starfox
gave Genis, he can now have some quality alone time with Marlo without having
to worry about Genis seeing (and vice-versa). Him and Marlo are now on a planet
in the Microverse but due to her situation with Moondragon, things haven't gone
exactly as planned.
