Astro City Wikia


The First Family is a family of space explorers and adventurers who are made up of Augustus and Julius, Nick and Natalie, Rex and Astra as well as Sasha and Karl. Together they fight interdimensional monsters, invent technology and study threats that no normal family could contain.

Raised in St Paul, MN, scientist Augustus Furst and his brother Julius traveled the world, seeking knowledge and adventure[1]. In 1954 they fought Kratorr the Invincible[2]. Augustus met a woman named Nadia in Yugoslavia, who had been exposed to alien radiation. She became his third wife, but she left him for Kaspian, prince of the Beast-Men. However, by 1961, she was missing and Kaspian was in jail, and the Furst brothers were asked to take care of Nick & Natalie, Nadia's children by Kaspian, who were showing powers from the radiation. Augustus adopted the children, and the team the First Family was born[3].

In 1979, Natalie Furst married Rex Majestros, the son of Madame Majestrix, the ruler of Monstro City and one of the team's enemies. In 1986, they had their first child, Astra[4].
