Brew's Crew: Crater

He was a Nova (the real Nova, not NINO) villain of few words and many actions. While there are few words I myself can write about him, this alien certainly deserves note.

The strong, silent type, Crater was an alien of no words and all action, especially when it came to assaulting the last of the Nova Centurions, Richard Rider, after witnessing the death of fellow Luminal, Suspensor.

Crater traveled with the rest of his group to the place called Knowhere in hopes they could eliminate the threat of their arch-foe, Abyss, forever. In a sad turn of events, Abyss slowly began to escape his prison and turned many of the citizens of Knowhere as well as Crater and the Luminals into his zombie slaves.

Sadly, Crater was eventually destroyed along with the rest of Abyss’ army once Nova and his ally Cosmo sealed Abyss back in his prison. At that point, the Luminals under Abyss’ control along with the rest of the zombies dissipated into nothing. (Even so, nice remembering back to those days, eh?)

Crater appeared to have superhuman strength and durability, the limits of which are unknown.

It is also unknown if Crater ever met Jarhead.
