By their own account, the Jovians are "Nomad Creatures of Madness" and "Parasites of Universe" suggesting that they did not originally come from the planet Jupiter, but were drawn to it by the so-called "Pool of Madness" a pool of fiery liquid that somehow sustains them and keep them vital on the otherwise dead planet.
By 1948 the Jovians were led by Keezar, and either by design or accident their Pool of Madness caused a ray of madness to bombard the Earth, first starting to make animals go insane, and threatened to have the same effect on human beings. The government of Earth sent the Human Torch to Jupiter to destroy the source of the Ray of Madness. Sensing the Torch's approach, Keezar organized an ambush and the Jovians attempted to kill the Torch. However, a freak meteor shower killed all the Jovians but Keezar. The Torch then caused the Pool of Madness to overflow, drowning Keezar.
If any Jovians continue to exist or if they are extinct is unknown given their nomadic nature.
Powers and Abilities
Jovians appear to be able to survive on the planet Jupiter, breathing it's mostly hydrogen based atmosphere and able to withstand it's gravity and harsh environment.
Average Strength level
The Jovians required to remain near the so-called "Pool of Madness", a flaming molten pool of an unidentified liquid that gave off rays of energy that sustained them and kept them alive. However, exposure to the Pool of Madness was lethal.
Gravity: 2.4 times stronger than Earth
Type of Government: Tribal
Level of Technology: The Jovians appeared to have no source of technology, yet claimed to be nomadic in the universe. As they referred to themselves as parasites of the universe, it's likely that they travelled the universe in stolen technology which was then discarded once it was no longer needed.
Cultural Traits: Cultural traits unknown.
Representatives: Keezar (Deceased)
Since the Original Human Torch is seen flying through outer space perhaps Kleezar[]opened a portal between dimensions and the Human Torch was really flying through Negative Zone[] or Dimention Zero/Mad Dimension[]space,both of which has breathable air.
