Nexus is a cosmic comic book superhero created by Steve Rude.


Given power by the cosmic entity Merk, Horatio Hellpop was tasked to use his power to kill mass murderers (to atone for his father's crimes) but soon also became a cosmic hero, protecting a large number of intergalactic refugees.


Horatio Hellpop was born to his father Theodore Hellpop and his mother.  Theodore was a communist dictator on the planet Vradic who ruled the world with an iron fist.  When his brother-in-law's religious uprising was proving successful, Theodore, convinced to upholf the law at any cost, detonated a planet-destroying bomb that wiped out Vradic and 10,000,000 inhabitants.

While escaping, Theodore Hellpop's ship was sucked into a black hole, transporting him and his wife's ship near a barren planet orbitted by two moons, Ylum and Marlis.
