UberHaxorNova was born on June 1, 1990, like James Wilson and is a celebrity of a different kind. It is almost impossible for any fan of live game streaming not to know the name. In his niche, Uber is something of a demigod with millions of followers on YouTube.
As a baby of the 90s, or as he is usually called by fans, Nova has developed his craft over the years and taken on various responsibilities. This continuous adaptation is probably the reason why this YouTube commentator, gamer, and comedian has remained relevant.
Early days with his mom
Before James Wilson became UberHaxorNova, he was like most children who had little to offer them and their families. He was raised by his mother. He worked in a Twizzlers factory selling hot dogs. At that time he lived with his mother and her dogs in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. But soon he turned to YouTube, the tool that helped him turn his fortunes around.
James Wilson’s early YouTube days
On April 4, 2008, the then 16-year-old Wilson launched his first YouTube channel. At that time he had uploaded machinima, machinima respawn, and short Let’s Play videos. It was the latter that made him an online gaming star. After concentrating exclusively on making Let’s Play videos with commentary, he worked a lot with his YouTube colleague, Sp00nerism, on several multiplayer game series for the video game Dead Rising 2.
This new focus soon earned him recognition as one of the most popular game channels on YouTube. The growth of his channel also earned him a collaboration with PewDiePie, which had the most subscribed YouTube channel at the time.
James Wilson’s time with the Creatures, and forming Cow Chop
Nova’s continued collaboration with Sp00nerism on many multiplayer series eventually caught the attention of a group called The Creatures. This group was made up of people who were YouTube commentators and machinima makers, two skills that happened to correspond exactly to Nova’s alley. He worked with Sp00n and some members of the group for some time before officially becoming a member of The Creatures.
Wilson began appearing regularly in the Creature Talk videos. He even had his own intro for his videos. One of his most successful series was about the game Happy Wheels. It even caught the attention of the original game designer, Jim Bonacci, who sought to work with him. The creatures are a very big part of UberHoxarNova’s online gaming success.
At one point in their existence, the creatures moved into several large homes from which they worked in an effort to further their inspiration for content creation. At that point, however, the members of the creative group began to experience complications with one another. As a result, many members were cycling, many members left the group, and many joined it. Most memorable of all was the removal of long-time member Max, aka GassyMexican, in 2012, who has kicked off the team for not contributing nearly as much as the others.
During the vote, Nova did not choose a side but merely expressed his opinion on the matter. This was eventually considered a vote against Max. The group continued to spiral as many founding and early members continued to leave the team. This had a major impact on the number of subscribers and the group’s fan base.
On April 30, 2016, Wilson officially left the group along with his Creatures colleague TheImmortalHD, aka Aleksandr. They left the group along with two of the group’s interns, Joe and Aron, to start their own channel, Cow Chop. Their departure was triggered by a sharp disagreement with the group’s executive arm over the direction they wanted to take. Wilson’s departure harmed the creatures more than anyone else as it was the group’s most subscribed channel. The group would officially disband later, in 2017.
Wilson began uploading videos to the Cow Chop channel even before the official announcement of their separation from the creatures. He also regularly uploaded videos with his friend and Cow Chop co-founder ImmortalHD, popularly known as Aleks.
In these videos and in reality, Nova has continued in his hyperactive nature, breaking down doors, almost drowning in rivers, playing inside with fireworks, and a lot of other crazy stuff. Once he almost blinded himself with bleach.
James Wilson’s relationships
If there’s one thing James Wilson can keep secret, it’s his dating status. Fans have long tried to uncover the dating history and current dating status of Nova. However, there is no information online that has helped in the search.
All his fans have left is a cryptic message from a Twitter user @Ven0mkisser. The user is supposed to be Wilson’s girlfriend, and her tweets about carrying out a pregnancy test only helped fuel the fire.
There was also talk on Reddit about an episode of the Creature Talk series where Nova apparently nodded his head when it was assumed he had a girlfriend. Since then there has been no confirmation that he has a girlfriend.
How wealthy is James Wilson?
Wilson was involved in making machinima videos at a time when machinima was in its heyday. He also achieved this success with what was probably the leading machinima and YouTube gaming group at the time.
He also had good success with his follow-up project Cow Chop and his solo channels, including the special WWE gaming “NovaPipeBomb”. The net value of UberHaxorNova has not been officially announced, but some online sources put it at around $3 million.
