great custom, but have a question about the character, not your awesome work. isn't booster gold a captain marvel/quasar like character? so did he get an upgrade in power as supernova or what is his power as booster vs this form? but anyway great custom, would love to see some more group shots of your figs, you could make some epic battles.

Supernova made his debut in the pages of 52. As the world struggled to cope with the death of Superboy, the absence of Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman, and the betrayal of the semi-beloved hero Booster Gold, Supernova appeared out of nowhere and quickly gained the trust of Metropolis.

With mysterious powers and the air of a weathered veteran, Supernova was perfect, even gaining the approval of Daily Planet reporter Clark Kent.

The identity of Supernova was a mystery, but various characters had various theories. Lex Luthor thought it was the missing Superman, taunting him with a new identity. Wonder Girl thought it was her recently deceased boyfriend Superboy, risen from the dead like Superman before him. Booster Gold didn't care who it was- all he cared about was upstaging him. When a nuclear sub was damaged in Metropolis, Booster appearently died containing the detonation high above the city.

Skeets, Booster's best friend and sidekick,had been acting strangely since the events of Infinite Crisis. He hunted down Booster's ancestor, Daniel Carter, and convinced him to put on Booster's suit and investigate the HQ of Rip Hunter. When Skeets discovers that Rip labeled him as the cause of everything gone wrong, he trapped Daniel in an endless time loop and began a rabid search through the time stream for Rip Hunter.

Eventually, it is disovered that Supernova is working for Rip Hunter. When Skeets corners Hunter in an abandoned Fortress of Solitude near the Bottled City of Kandor, it is revealed that Supernova is actually Booster using a Phantom Zone projector. When he attempts to use it against Skeets, Skeets somehow eats the Phantom Zone.

Apparently, Rip met with Booster secretly early on and told him his theory about Skeets. Booster then went to the future, dug up his own corps, pretended to loose control of himself and destroy the nuclear submarine, then switched places with his corpse and went back in time to interact with himself under the guise of Supernova. Because Supernova and Booster where seen together and separately at the same instant, no one could suspect them to be one and the same,

Skeets in turn revealed the secret to his recent erratic behavior: he was infected by Mr. Mind, who was now fully grown and integrated with the Phantom Zone and eager to eat all of the new The DC Multiverse.

During the fight to save everything, Rip reveals that he had found Daniel Carter lost in time, and gave him the Supernova suit to increase their numbers. The three defeated Mr.Mind, and the Multiverse was fine.

On the pages of the new Booster Gold series, we find Daniel enjoying life with a super suit, and Booster and Rip setting off on another adventure to save everything. But after they leave, Daniel is blind sided, and a mysterious new stranger, later revealed to be Booster's father, takes the costume. Jonar later joins up with the Time Stealers in an attempt to take over the world by preventing the world's greatest heroes from forming by altering the past. Ultimately, he is stopped when he is revealed to be the host to Mr. Mind and his spawn. Booster is forced to tear his father's ear off to stop Mind. It is unknown if Jonar is still alive.

Supernova's design is based on a Pre-Crisis Imaginary Story in which Superman loses his powers. When the government tests a "super-cobalt bomb", it rips a hole in reality. Superman ops to investigate it when he is coated in some sort of anti-septic from machines. When he arrives back on Earth, doctors tell him that the anti-septic has drained his powers from him- making him an ordinary mortal.

Refusing to give up super heroics and inspired by such non-powered heroes as Batman and the Green Arrow, Superman uses a cape devised by Leonardo Da Vinci. The cape allows him to glide on air currents, as well as hide various gadgets inside of it, such as knockout gas. Unfortunately, while Nova is still an exemplary fighter, he used to not using the full force of his strength, which leads to him being knocked out by a group of gangsters working for Mr. Socrates. Socrates had the captive Superman programmed to obey his commands. Ultimately, Superman and Batman are able to disable the chip in Superman's neck allowing Socrates to control Superman, and Socrates is killed by a bomb meant for Batman. In the end, Superman mothballs the Nova costume. What happens to him afterwards is unknown.
