(Frankie Raye) Fantastic Four Vol. 1 #164 (1975); (Nova) Fantastic Four Vol. 1 #244 (1982)
Fantastic Four Vol. 1 #238 (1982)
Significant Issues
First met Johnny Storm (Fantastic Four Vol. 1 #164, 1975); learned of her powers (Fantastic Four Vol. 1 #238, 1982); became herald of Galactus (Fantastic Four Vol. 1 #244, 1982); taught by Silver Surfer to value all life (Silver Surfer Vol. 3 #51, 1991); killed by Morg (Silver Surfer Vol. 3 #75, 1992)

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.

Now called Nova, Frankie took delight in finding new worlds for Galactus to feed on, caring little for the lives of aliens. That was, until she met the Silver Surfer. The Surfer did his best to teach her to value all life, finally bringing Frankie to a primitive world and asking her if she would feed it to Galactus. She said she would, only to learn that the Surfer had brought her back in time to a young Earth.

Nova grew reluctant to serve Galactus after this, and he grew tired of her. Galactus finally cast her out, taking the vicious executioner Morg as his new herald. Nova then joined with her fellow heralds – the Silver Surfer, Terrax, Firelord and Air-Walker – in opposing Morg. During the battle, Morg slew Nova with a blast of energy through her chest. Later, the Silver Surfer laid her body to its final rest within a sun.

Great figure Mikey!!!
Yes, hot glue! 3 thin sticks for the whole figure.
I originally did this 2 months ago and it looked like crud! I then last month did the Molten Man to practice on flames. I found a great pic in the Official Handbook to the Marvel Universe and that image actually helped me to better envision thsi figure.
And DEDI Thanks always for the comments. I'm gonna have to getcha back.

Lol, one-liners are fine as long as they're the recipie, which yours is so it's cool.
People don't get kicked-off this site unless they do something so obscene that the computer-screen catches fire or if someone eats Cap's lunch :P

Sorry didn't mean to.... its not like I ever do that on my postings. But I did use it cause otherwise I'd have one line. Won't happen again I promise. I can't afford to get kicked off another site in the same day. I re edited.
I think I just met the parent site of Fwoosh! I should go hang out and sulk with Jin! Now I know how he feels.

all I know of Nova is that she is a glowy being that looks a little like Phoenix
Dr Nightmare - Saturday, September 15, 2007
True, but it makes the page unnecessarily long, and the text takes up space on FR' thing, LOL. I know, it's like half a kilobyte, but still! :P
It's cool though, I didn't know who Nova was. As long as you guys don't do this when submitting a Wolverine I won't say anything

but wikipedia makes everything easier for the people who can't type a back story
nice job dude, keep up the good work

That hair is so bad-bum, it definitely makes the figure shine.
(By the way, next time don't post the entire Wikipedia page about the character >_< )
