Name:Nova ( Frankie Raye )
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Date Added:September 18, 2010
Base Figure:Electra
Height:6.00 inches
Started with a FF diorama, the "hair" is Johnny Storm, the head is Maria Hill and the body is Electra (I think). Dremmeled into the Human Torch and placed the head. The rest is paint and green stuff. Used a mix of flat Citadel paint and glossy Testors paint. Comments and suggestions welcomed.

Frankie Raye was the stepdaughter of Phineas T. Horton, inventor of the android Human Torch. He became bitter at the announcement of a new Human Torch, Johnny Storm of the Fantastic Four. Horton brought Frankie with him as he dug into the spare parts and chemicals he had used to build the Human Torch decades earlier. Frankie was exposed to a canister of chemicals which set her on fire, but instead of being harmed she gained powers similar to the Human Torch's. Horton later placed a post-hypnotic suggestion in her mind to keep her afraid of fire, so she wouldn't use her powers.

By chance, Frankie met Johnny Storm and they began a romantic relationship. She finally discovered what her father had done to her and regained her memories. Under Johnny's guidance, she learned how to control her powers and became an unofficial member of the Fantastic Four. Although Frankie wanted to join the team on their adventures, Mister Fantastic often left her behind due to her lack of experience.

When Galactus returned to Earth, desperate for sustenance, Frankie offered herself to him as a herald in order to save Earth, and for the chance to explore space. Galactus granted her a portion of the Power Cosmic and she departed Earth, without a backwards glance.
