» Biography

Real Name: Genis-Vell
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 195 lbs.
Eye Color: Blue
Hair Color: Blond; white when cosmically aware
First Appearance: Silver Surfer Annual #6

History: After the first Captain Marvel died, his lover Elysius used his genetic structure along with her own to conceive a child; Genis-Vell. He was artificially aged to maturity and implanted with false memories to protect him from his father's enemies.

After discovering his true identity he christened himself Legacy and began wearing the Nega-Bands. Later, he took the title Captain Marvel, after Photon (who was then using the name) passed it on to him.

At the climax of the Destiny War, he was unwillingly merged with Rick Jones by his future self, which triggered his latent Cosmic Awareness. He is still naive in the ways of the world, so he relies on Rick for help. The two have shared many adventures since then, and only time will tell what will happen next.

Future: In Avengers Forever, some interesting tidbits about his (possible) future were revealed; he will become involved romantically with Songbird and the two of them will join the Avengers (although he'll join after she does). This is taken one step further in issue #19 when we see that he marries Songbird and they have two children (Mimi and Ely), his mother is alive once again, and that he'll apparently be responsible for Songbird's death.
