Fictional character biography

Cloud is a sentient nebula, an immense cloud of gas, with the ability to assume human form. Cloud's initial human form was at first modeled after human female Carol Faber.[1] After falling in love with Moondragon, Cloud also developed a male form modeled after Danny Milligan.[2]

Cloud was an adventurer for a while with the Defenders.[3]

Cloud later traveled through space for a time with Moondragon, Sundragon, and Gargoyle, and the Eternal Demeityr, who had become Sundragon's lover.[4]
