History: Ric Marinetti gained his superhuman powers from mysterious energies contained within a tiny meteorite, which had been sent to Earth by a representative of the "Universal Conclave", a cosmic "secret society". Having decided Earth was a "cancer to the Universe", the Conclave had already granted incredible destructive power, sufficient to destroy the planet, to a being now known as Estrela Maldita (Curse Star, the "Evil One"). Regretting this action, the Conclave representative tried to balance things by picking a champion, Ric, the "Good One", to whom he granted "Meteor Power" so he couuld protect the Earth. A tall order for anyone, even with superpowers, let alone a seventeen year old boy.
