Introduced in Micronauts #1 (1978) by Bill Mantlo and Michael Golden, Commander Arcturus Rann set out on a voyage to explore the Microverse. While his conscious mind spent a thousand years in suspended animation, his subconscious made contact with the Enigma Force. At intervals, astral copies of Rann would appear and become new Time Travelers. Some of them became Shadow Priests, who set up churches devoted to worship of Dallan and Sepsis (Rann’s royal parents). All this activity prepared Rann to confront Baron Karza when he returned home. At the proper moment, the Shadow Priests shed their disguises and reunited with Rann, giving him the power to defeat Karza.

The Enigma Force came into play again when the Spacewall between the Microverse and the Macroverse (i.e. the Marvel Universe) began to break down and the Whirldemons escaped. Rann had lost his connection to the Enigma Force, which meant that many of the Time Travelers ceased to exist (or were inaccessible). While Rann tried to restore that connection, the Microns (with the help of Doctor Strange) went on a quest to find the Sunsword, drive back the Whirldemons, and repair the Spacewall.

This character is actually a bit of a grey area for Marvel as he was originally created for a toy line tie in comic called the Micronauts for Mego Corporation (now owned by Hasbro), who own the rights to the franchise. However, Marvel has used the characters in their comic in search since, the most famous being Bug who appears in GOTG comics. However, since he was Captain Universe, when merged with Dr. Strange, he has gotten a figure in Marvel Legends. However, don’t be expecting him to get any more unless Hasbro releases a Micronaut 6″ line.

Below you will find a gallery of suits that still need to be made. I have included what I think are the possibilities of them being made. Note that these are my personal opinions and not facts. Please let me know if I have missed anything.

I would put images here, but I don’t think they can be made any more in Marvel Legends. Hopefully, Hasbro will make a new line for them.
