    Smile Rick Jones CAPTAIN MARVEL and Marlo Chandler Appreciation 2019

    Rick Jones

    A scrappy, rebellious orphan, Rick Jones stumbled into the test site for the Gamma Bomb
    and inadvertently caused Bruce Banner to be caught in the blast while trying to save Rick, transforming Banner into the Hulk.
    Rick became the Hulk's closest confidant, a member of the Avengers
    and a friend and sidekick to heroes like Captain America, Captain Mar-Vell and Rom.


    CAPTAIN MARVEL

    Cloned from the DNA of the Kree warrior Mar-Vell,
    Genis-Vell was implanted with false memories making him believe he was instead Starfox's son.
    He was then artificially aged so that he'd be ready to face Mar-Vell's enemies.
    Later, he inherits the title of Captain Marvel.


    Marlo Chandler

    Marlo is the wife of Rick Jones and former lover of the Hulk.
    Due to her relationship with Rick, she has often found herself in several superhero adventures and cosmic conflicts.

    When he was a teenager, Rick was the only one who knew that Bruce Banner was the secret identity of the incredible Hulk.

    Avengers #3 Jan 1964
    "The Avengers meet Sub-Mariner!"
    At their next meeting, the Avengers decide they need to find the Hulk before he causes more trouble.
    Iron Man uses his image projector device to communicate with the Fantastic Four, Spider-Man
    and the X-Men to ask if they have spotted him, but he has no luck.
    Thor comes up with the smart idea of asking Rick Jones to help find the Hulk.
    They contact him and Rick sets out into the desert to an area where he could be.

    A short while later, Rick discovers the Hulk and leads him to a cave they had used in the past as a refuge.

    There, Rick operates a machine that transforms the Hulk back into Bruce Banner.
    While asleep, stressful thoughts cause Banner to revert to his Hulk-state and escape.

    Rick Jones contacts the Avengers, alerting them to the situation and they travel to the desert to stop him getting out of hand.
    After a brief battle, the Hulk escapes onto a passing train and with the help of an empty train carriage,
    some industrial cable, and a couple of bags of flour, manages to elude the team.
    After laying low, he reaches the sea and is eventually taken onto a ship on the brink of exhaustion.

    Under the sea, Namor the Sub-Mariner watches the scene. After the Hulk leaves the ship, the Sub-Mariner meets him on a small island.
    After a short fight, Namor suggests they team up and fight the humans together, as they each bear a grudge against humanity.
    They form an uneasy alliance, each untrusting of the other, and issue a challenge to the Avengers: to battle at the Rock of Gibraltar!
    The villains use old World War II weaponry to attack the Avengers, but Iron Man deflects the shells with his repulsor rays.
    Namor disables Iron Man by firing an emery dust pellet at him, clogging up the joints in his armour.
    Thor holds the duo at bay while the Wasp finds a tank of oxygen, which is used to blow the dust away and bring Iron Man back into the fight.
    The Avengers chase their enemies through the tunnels. Namor plans to use an old air raid siren he has converted into a weapon,
    but is caught by Giant-Man and the battle continues. Both the Hulk and Sub-Mariner attempt to lift Thor's hammer but are unable to do so.
    At an inopportune moment, the stress causes Hulk to change back into Banner when Namor needs his help the most, and is forced to flee.
    Namor, without help from the Hulk, is quickly outmatched and narrowly escapes into the ocean.

    Ah yes. Peter David took over from Al Milgrom as writer.
    The to me very cool thing Milgrom did before David became the writer is that he re-introduced the grey Hulk in

    Incredible Hulk #324 Oct 1986

    The last time the grey Hulk appeared was

    Incredible Hulk #1 May 1962

    To me this was so cool because for nearly 25 years whenever they re-told the Hulk's origin he was depicted as green instead of grey.

    Marvel Team-Up #16 Dec 1973
    "Beware the Basilisk My Son!" First appearance of the Basilisk.
    Captain Marvel has sent his partner Rick Jones to New York City

    after he detected a Kree energy source of the long-lost Alpha Stone, a powerful emerald crystal.
    At that very moment at a museum, a thief named Basil Elks eyes the mysterious stone.
    Breaking the display case, he removes the coveted object.
    He thinks about how this will prove to the other convicts in prison that Basil Elks,
    who they jokingly referred to as Basilisk, was a criminal in his own right.
    His thoughts are interrupted when he is caught red-handed by a security guard.
    Before Basil can draw his gun, the officer fires and through a twist of fate strikes the Alpha Stone.
    The gem is shattered by the bullet, releasing energies that transform Basil into a green-skinned form.
    The frightened officer tries to flee, but when Elks tells him to freeze,
    he is surprised when his eyes fire energy that freezes the guard in his tracks.
    Realizing what he has done, Basil looks in the mirror and is amazed by his transformation.
    Realizing that he can transmute matter with his eye beams, Basil reshapes a suit of armor into a costume
    and decides to take on the moniker that has taunted him during his criminal career -- Basilisk.

    Not far away, Peter Parker is heading down the streets in the hopes of catching the late show at the local movie theater.
    As he passes the museum he witnesses one of the walls blowing out and Basilisk departing the scene.
    Realizing that this could be trouble, Peter slips into some bushes so he can change into Spider-Man and pursue this new menace.
    When the web-slinger confronts this new villain, he discovers that his foe's eye blasts are powerful.
    Furious at this surprise attack, Basilisk decides that he will begin his new criminal career by destroying Spider-Man.
    While the hero is stunned, Rick Jones happens on the scene.
    Seeing that Spider-Man is at the mercy of his foe, Jones claps his armbands allowing Captain Marvel to trade places with him.

    Although Captain Marvel has the element of surprise, Basilisk uses his powers to melt the concrete under the heroes feet.
    It takes his power of levitation to break free and resume the fight.
    Basilisk realizes that he can use his powers to rocket himself into the air and tries to escape.
    Before Mar-Vell can stop him, the villain uses his powers to entrap the hero in ice.
    The Captain manages to break free before he can fall to the ground, but by this point, Basilisk has escaped.

    Spider-Man thanks Captain Marvel for the assist and learns that the Alpha Stone is one of two ancient Kree weapons.
    Some time ago, the Alpha and Omega Stones were taken into space to be destroyed.
    However, one Kree soldier sought their power for himself. But, instead of gaining ultimate power,
    the two stones caused the ship to explode and they were lost in space, until now when the Alpha Stone turned up on Earth.
    Fearing that Basilisk might find the Omega Stone and increase his power, the two heroes agree to team-up and hunt down their foe.
    The pair track Basilisk down to a nearby construction site where he is attempting to dig up the Omega Stone.
    While Spider-Man runs interference, Captain Marvel recovers the Omega Stone.
    However, the stone reacts with Mar-Vell, growing in size. It encases the Kree warrior and suddenly teleports away.

    Distracted by the sudden disappearance, Spider-Man is unable to stop Basilisk from getting away.
    Spider-Man realizes that Mar-Vell's disappearance wasn't planned and wonders what he can do to help.

    Is Rick still dead? That wasn't a nice thing to do.

    Yes, I believe the comicbook character Rick Jones is still dead.
    It wasn't a nice thing to do but given how the people who publish the comics behave towards their long-term customer base and who are fans of certain marvel characters which include certain white male marvel characters for years/decades, I am not surprised in the least.

    Marvel Team-Up #17 Jan 1974
    "Chaos at the Earth's Core!"
    After Captain Marvel had disappeared with the Omega Stone, Spider-Man heads
    to the Baxter Building in order to enlist the aid of Mister Fantastic of the Fantastic Four.
    Slipping into the Baxter Building, Spider-Man sets off the alarms and is snared in a coil device.
    This alerts Mister Fantastic to his presence and as soon as he realizes that he is dealing with Spider-Man,
    he deactivates the security system. Demanding to know why the wall-crawler is intruding.
    Thinking that Spider-Man has come looking for the Human Torch,
    Reed Richards tells him that the Fantastic Four has disbanded and he is the only one left.
    When the web-slinger explains that he has come for Richards, he explains his encounter with Basilisk, the Alpha and Omega Stones,

    as well as the disappearance of Captain Marvel.
    After hearing this, Mister Fantastic tells Spider-Man that he can't help.
    However, Spider-Man won't take no for an answer and tells Richards to stop kicking himself while he is down, convincing Reed to change his mind.
    Using a device that he constructed to track Kree energy signatures,
    Reed is able to track the Omega Stone, pinpointing the location as the center of the Earth.
    Getting into the Fantasti-Car, Reed pilots himself and Spider-Man to the tunnel that leads to the Mole Man's domain of Subeterranea.
    No sooner are they there are they swarmed by a legion of Moloids.
    Although the pair held their own against the diminutive attackers, they are ultimately felled by a blast of knock out gas.
    They are then carried to the Mole Man's throne room where they are revived.
    The Mole Man decides to show them his latest weapon, a massive laser cannon
    that is powered by both the Omega Stone and the magma found in Earth's core.
    The Mole Man explains that he will use the laser to punch holes to the surface, causing untold destruction.

    As an added bonus, the first shot -- when focused through the crystal -- will also incinerate Captain Marvel as well.

    With his plan laid out before his foes, the Mole Man orders his Moloids to toss Mister Fantastic and Spider-Man into the magma pit below.
    Despite this effort, the pair manages to avoid death using their respective powers to get out of the pit.
    The Mole Man then orders his minions to get them, but before this can happen, Basilisk arrives and uses his powers to turn to the Moloids into ice.
    Basilisk explains that he followed Spider-Man after their battle as he knew the wall-crawler would lead him to the Omega Stone.
    This leads to a clash between the Mole Man and Basilisk over the Omega Stone.
    While they are distracted, Mister Fantastic and Spider-Man attempt to free Captain Marvel from his prison.
    When the two villains see this they put aside their difference momentarily to stop them.
    With the heroes down, Basilisk turns on the Mole Man, knocking him out with an eye blast.
    Basilisk then attempts to get at the Omega Crystal and claim it for his own.
    However, by this point, Captain Marvel has managed to draw his armbands close enough to trigger a switch with Rick Jones.
    With Jones back on Earth, the Omega Stone is restored to normal.

    Thanks to tampering by Reed Richards, the laser cannon begins to destabilize.
    As the three heroes attempt to leave, Basilisk seemingly perishes in a wave of magma while trying to recover the Omega Stone.
    The Mole Man is also trapped and begs for help, but the exploding laser cannon prevents the heroes from saving him as well.
    The trio then flee to the surface in the Fantasti-Car.

    There, Rick Jones thanks Spider-Man and Mister Fantastic for their help before swapping places with Captain Marvel, who flies away.
