Powers/Abilities: Nurse Richards had no superhuman powers, but was presumably a skilled nurse -- she was certainly not skilled at identifying kidnappers.
History: (Avengers I#279) - While Hercules was comatose following a battle with the Masters of Evil, Nurse Richards was the nurse on duty when he was kidnapped from his room. She was shocked when she witnessed the kidnapping.
(Avengers I#281) - When the Avengers arrived to investigate Hercules's disappearance, Nurse Richards told them everything she saw. While trying to explain that the kidnapper wore a cape, Richards pointed and mistakenly identified Thor as the kidnapper. Thor tried to explain that he was an old friend of Hercules, but was distracted by a mysterious figure outside and rushed outside to investigate.
Comments: Created by Roger Stern, John Buscema, and Tom Palmer.
