Nothing is known of the history of Miracleman, one of the last superheroes of the parallel world of Earth-238, except that he had a partner called Rick (apparently an analogue of Young Marvelman) and that he was murdered by the Fury, the cybiote killing machine created by Mad Jim Jaspers to eliminate his world's super beings.

Miracleman was created by Alan Moore in the Captain Britain strip he was then writing for Marvel UK as an homage to the classic 1950s superhero Marvelman, who Moore was at the same time writing for Warrior magazine. When threatened legal action by Marvel Comics forced Warrior to stop publishing Marvelman, the character ended up being published by the American company Eclipse Comics, who had Moore continue his story... but to avoid getting sued, they rather ironically renamed 'Marvelman' as 'Miracleman', effectively swiping Marvel's name for him! Presumably, this was at least in part an in-joke on Moore's part...
