Robert Rider was the younger brother of Richard Rider, aka Nova. Richard had always been insecure about Robbie being smarter than he was, but Robbie constantly looked up to his big brother. At some sharpen Richard confided in his kin about his powers. Robbie was normally more supportive of Richard ‘s character as a bomber than their parents. At one orient Robbie was kidnapped by a street gang called the Poison Memories who had a stew against Nova ‘s team, the New Warriors. The crowd drawing card Kimeiko Ashu chopped off one of Robbie ‘s fingers. Nova felt amazing about this and later went to M.I.T. to talk to his brother and ask for his forgiveness. Robbie said there was nothing to forgive and he would gladly give up more fingers if that ‘s what it took for his brother to save lives. [ 7 ] Robert once earned a bunch of money from selling a software program he designed. He used the money he earned from that to buy the Long Island home plate the Rider family used to live in. [ 8 ] Robert ‘s parents had previously been living in Jackson Heights, Queens. [ 9 ] While working as a scientist at Project P.E.G.A.S.U.S., Robbie was selected to help reconstitute the Nova Corps and became a extremity like his brother Richard. Robbie became friends with Darkhawk, with whom he worked at P.E.G.A.S.U.S .. [ 10 ] [ 11 ] Even though Richard believed Robbie was among the members of the Nova Corps who sacrificed themselves in the Cancerverse, [ 12 ] he alternatively had returned to Xandar in an try to jump-start the fade Nova Force. With no powers or a function ship, Robbie became stranded in the abandon satellite. [ 6 ]


Six months afterwards, Robbie was attacked by a group of scavenging Raptors. Using a device called the Inquisitor, the Raptors regularly forced Robbie into a imitate virtual reality with which he was brainwashed into serving the Fraternity of Raptors. Rejecting his former life, Robbie even refused to be called “ Talon Rider, ” going alternatively by the alias of Talon-R. In club to help the Raptors ‘ goal of finding the Infinity Stones, Talon-R set out to find a laid of Nega-Bands. [ 6 ] even though Talon-R secured a mummify cadaver sporting Nega-Bands, his ship ended up in the hands of the Guardians of the Galaxy, who rechristened it as the Milano. [ 13 ] Talon-R and his mate Raptors finally tracked down the Milano and boarded it, retrieving one of the Nega-Bands in the process. As he was making his escape, Talon-R poisoned Rocket Raccoon with the tip of his claw. [ 2 ] Star-Lord used the other Nega-Band to confront and defeat Talon-R, and they struck a softwood. once Talon-R handed over the antidote, Quill was to give him the other Nega-Band. Star-Lord complied, but first opened a portal site in which he threw the band. When Talon-R jumped through the portal vein to follow the band, he found himself stranded in a distant planet where its inhabitants had been turned into Ultron hybrid zombies. [ 14 ] Talon-R had reunited with the Fraternity of Raptors by the time they attacked the Nova outstation in Xitaung where the giant-sized Power Stone was being guarded. [ 15 ] During the assail, Talon-R encountered Rich, and berated him for the absence of the Nova Corps when he needed them. Their reunion was interrupted when they were both attacked by the Chitauri Warbringer, [ 16 ] and Robbie was badly injured. Before being taken away by soldiers since the Raptors decided to retreat, Robbie made Rich realize a way to reduce the Power Stone to a manageable size, by imposing one ‘s cognition over reality. Star-Lord put this concept to practice, and the Guardians of the Galaxy managed to seize dominance of the pit. [ 17 ]

Seeking to liberate the real Raptors from the Tree of Shadows, the Fraternity took Talon-R to the Shi’ar Outpost IV so he could open a doorway to the Null Space with the baron of his Nega-Bands. To their surprise, the real Raptors were already free and no long needed to bond with a living being to work, which prompted them to kill all the pretenders save for Talon-R, who used the Nega-Bands to protect himself. [ 18 ] Needing a exist being to serve as the will tribute of a ritual that would unlock the true exponent of the Starhawk within their ranks, [ 4 ] Commander Gyre convinced Talon-R to join them in their quest to bring order to the galaxy. [ 18 ] With a subdued Chris Powell serving as the coerce tribute, Gyre completed the ritual and transform Talon-R into the Dark Starhawk. [ 4 ] Robbie and the Raptors planned to raze the earth to eliminate their greatest menace, humanness, but they were confronted on the way there by Chris, Robbie ‘s brother Nova, and Death ‘s Head. Nova, horrified for discovering his brother was the Dark Starhawk, tried his best to reason with Robbie during the acute fight that broke out, but his words fell on deaf ears. Preferring to carry out his own translation of order in the universe, Robbie killed Gyre and invited his brother to join the Raptors. When Death ‘s Head exploded a Kree falsify core, wiping out all the Raptors except for Robbie, Chris took the opportunity to reclaim his Raptor Amulet. Though heavily injured, Robbie somehow managed to hit his Nega-Bands together and vanished in a flash of clean. [ 19 ]

Quest for the Time Gem

Robbie late assembled a new contingent of Raptors and obtained a new embark. He witnessed the Infinity Stones leave Earth after Adam Warlock gave them awareness and noted that one Stone remained on Earth and that the Raptors needed to find the Stones ‘ fresh wielders.

[ 21 ] Robbie tortured Hector to make him hand over the Time Stone, but Hector had no means of summoning it and had no control over its power. then the Raptors ‘ transport was boarded by Wolverine, Loki, and the ghost cad Bats. Wolverine and Loki were soon subdued. indeed, Loki traveled back to Earth to retrieve Robbie ‘s mother Gloria, hoping she could talk some sense into her son. [ 22 ] Robbie had Wolverine placed in an incinerator so he could claim Wolverine ‘s adamantium skeleton, but Wolverine escaped thanks to Bats giving him his Time Bat. When Loki appeared with Gloria, Robbie thought it was one of Loki ‘s illusions and mortally wounded his mother, realizing excessively late that she was real. Hector was able to reverse this result after by chance traveling respective seconds into the by. Gloria then was able to talk Robbie down who claimed that he was looking for the Infinity Stones to reverse all the regretful things that happened to their kin. After reuniting with Wolverine, the Time Variance Authority appeared to arrest Hector for manipulating the time stream with the Time Stone ( actually an illusion created by Loki ), [ 23 ] but Warbringer then unexpectedly appeared to take the Time Stone. Robbie quickly created a push battlefield to prevent everyone from floating out into space through the fix Warbringer made in the Raptors ‘ ship. [ 1 ] Robbie ‘s violence field held improving, but Warbringer hit it with enough effect to cause to go through the Raptors ‘ ship. When Warbringer attacked again, Hector unwittingly froze time around him. After learning to better control his powers, Hector returned time to normal and freeze time around Warbringer. When the wrong Warbringer did to the ship was causing it to self-destruct, Loki created a portal site for everyone to flee to Earth. After that, Gloria angrily told Robbie to get into their home so they could talk, but Robbie told her that he could n’t and flew off into space using the Nega-Bands. [ 24 ]
