Arthur Farington gained his abilities from the mysterious cosmic-entity known as Origin who crafts a "Saviour" every thousand-years throughout the Galaxy. Although unknown to Arthur, he was chosen as he is a descendant of a long-lost prince/warrior whom Origin had once considered. Charles Merrick, a publicist who made it his mission to make a difference in the world, decided to craft Arthur into something more - something special. Arthur, with help from the public, began to go by the name of Nobleman (or simply "Noble"), the Highborn.
Powers and Abilities
Nobleman is one of the most powerful super heroes on the planet. He has massive amounts of super strength due to his body constantly feeding energy from Origin. He has heat and x-ray vision, and can fly at incredible speeds. He has a sonic scream strong enough to blow peoples heads off.
The original team lineup consisting of Captain Nebula, Smackdown, Battle-Max, Alerion, Jawsmith, Headlong and Jetwing were disbanded after Battle-Max had a mental breakdown and destroyed Harlem, resulting in many deaths. Years later, Nobleman brought the idea of reviving the team in response to the public-fear against other groups and the ongoing-war against Government agency T.H.R.O.N.E. The new lineup consists of Nobleman, Lodestar, Blackstorm, Arcane, Speedhawk and Goldsmith.
