Richard 'Rick' Jones (Marvel)

Search for 'Richard 'Rick' Jones (Marvel)' on Amazon

No innate superhuman powers; briefly possessed powers similar to the Hulk, causing him to transform into a gamma-powered behemoth of great strength and limited intellect.

Rick Jones was a rebellious youth who one day ran away from a state institution for troubled teens. He drove to an army test site where experiments involving gamma bombs were being conducted. Dr. Bruce Banner, the designer of the gamma bombs, realized that the boy was on the testing field. He threw Rick to safety, absorbing the radiation himself. As a result of this, Banner transformed into the Hulk. Jones remained with the Hulk for some time, becoming a close friend.

Rick was instrumental in the creation of the Avengers, as after the evil Loki took control of the Hulk, Rick was the person who sent out the radio call to assemble the heroes.
He later went on to become Captain America's sidekick. However, after some time Rick started to resent being on the side-lines, This was assuaged when he discovered a pair of alien bracelets that let him trade places with Captain Mar-vell, an imprisoned Kree warrior.

After the death of Mar-vell, Jones returned to the side of the Hulk, and also briefly became an ally of the Galadorian spaceknight Rom. He later met and married Marlo Chandler.

Jones later sacrificed himself to prevent the destruction of all reality, but was saved when he merged with the son of Mar-Vell, Genis-Vell. This created a new Captain Marvel.
