Bio: Franklin Risk was a shady businessman who ended up being a suspect in the murder of scientist Ralph Rider, the uncle of Richard Rider aka Nova. Franklin was at Rider's house trying to procure his latest invention, a transistorized nuclear device, along with agents from A.I.M. and the Maggia when Rider was murdered.
Risk ended up being innocent of the charge and even after escaping police questioning and trying to cut a deal with A.I.M. and the Maggia, was never arrested as he technically had done nothing wrong.
