Well he's no Richard Rider, and he never will be but in issue 12 of AVX Sam Alexander proved he can be pretty badass when he has to...

I mean check it:

Boom!
Boom!

The Avengers were in a tough spot and thanks to Nova's efforts were able to save the day, earning him the respect of none other than The Mighty Thor, and an offer to be a part of the team:

So will he become a member? I know he has his own upcoming series by Jeph Loeb which is pretty cool in itself, but will he also be a part of Hickman's Avengers or New Avengers teams? Would be cool to see more of him but if not at least we'll have his ongoing.

I hope so. Never got a chance to read AVX or his stuff, but he seems like a suitable candidate.

It's very possible. Hickman's Avengers book alone looks like it may have as many as 14-16 characters rotating in and out.

Bring back Richie, place him back in the Secret Avengers rotation and make him a mentor to Sam.

Allow Sam to blossom with the experience of someone who is well versed in utilising the Nova Force to a greater potential.

Hope not.

Probably the most superfluous character created in the last decade, and Loeb apparently has no idea who Nova is.

Not really a big fan of Sam either, but I love Nova so I'll take what I can get

I just want an explanation on what has occurred since the Thanos Imperative. Rider and Quill sacrifice themselves to keep Thanos in the Canerverse as it collapsed around them. Thanos and Starlord are now back in action in Avengers Assembled (which I believe is cannon) and Sam has the Nova force.

Was it explained how the Nova Force came back online or how Sam became Nova?

Or how Thanos and Quill are alive?

Or if Rider is still alive?

they definitely need to explain how Starlord and Blackbolt have came back but still no sign of Richard Ryder....doesn't seem right

I honestly don't think Rich is dead. The writers just brought another nova into it just so when Rich does come back, AND HE WILL, there will be some tension and hostility. Richard > Sam
