Origin

Noh-Varr was a soldier assigned to the dimension-hopping 18th Kree Diplomatic Gestalt. Lost among the various parallel realities of the multiverse and searching for a way home, he and his crew mates aboard the dimension-schooner Marvel arrived at this reality's Earth.


The multi-trillionaire Dr. Midas seeking to acquire new technology as a means of achieving transformation through cosmic radiation, in a manner similar to the Fantastic Four; saw the Marvel and her crew as resources to exploit and ordered the schooner attacked.


The Marvel's sole survivor, Noh-Varr was taken prisoner by Dr. Midas to be dissected and cataloged, along with his ship's remains. Using his ability to control minds through organic infection, Noh-Var retrieved what he could of his ship's remains and fled, going to ground under New York City's Times Square. Midas resolved to retrieve his "property."


Defeating Dr. Midas, Noh-Varr has declared war on the Earth to avenge his comrades' deaths.


While incarcerated, Noh-Varr is convinced by Earth's senior heroes within the Illuminati to forgo his quest of vengeance and adopt the mantel of a protector, first claiming the mantel of Captain Marvel, and later assuming the name of Protector.
