Comic/standard versions.

No prep. Random encounter in New York. Can the team put down Nova?

Round 1 - Nova without Nova Force or worldmind

Round 2 - Nova with full Nova Force and Worldmind

Bonus round - Nova is still full Nova force and worldmind. Sam Alexander joins the battle. But iron man throws on the hulkbuster armor and Spider-Man shows up to fight too. So now it’s everyone vs both Nova’s.

@mm7910: Did I miss something about Falcon? Is he now Iron-Man level? I don't read much with him, that's why I am asking

I am I missing something here or is that just depowered Nova?

OT: Nova isn't wildy impressive from what I remember, the team should stomp here.

@thespartanb345t: he’s pretty insane. He ripped out Annihilus’ throat. He’s tanked blows from a mind controlled Thor. I think this could be a good fight.

@rac95: no he’s not iron man level. Just wanted to add another flying type in here.

Round 1 I think you mean classic Nova since Nova without the force would mean he'd be human lol, it could go either way but team 1 would have to work hard for a win.

Round 2 Nova blitzes.

@hellionvulcan: Even classic Nova got punched around by Gladiator so knocking him out would be difficult

Regular/classic Nova has already been stomped by Iron Man before.

@mm7910: That's pretty impressive.

But I can't say he'd beat the team here honestly.

@mm7910: How would depowered Nova do anything in R1?

R2 isn't that close.

@tony_shark: he is. I made this thinking personally he'd win both but wanted to hear others thoughts. Maybe not round 1 but still close.

@thespartanb345t: I think op means nova before getting full novaforce. That would be Nova as a centurion, not as nova prime. Even in this state, he could fight and beat iron man villains, survive fights against mindcontrolled Thor ans gladiator, fly close to light speed, change clothes in one millisecond, etc. But overall he isn't peak Iron Man tier without full novaforce.

On topic, he was consistently below peak Iron Man at centurion levels so he loses round 1.

Round 2 he wrecks them.

@thespartanb345t: I think so. Plus current nova doesn't have full novaforce either so current feats should also count

@apex_pretador: thats true currently he doesn't. so that makes round 1 definitely in favor of team. But I can't see team even scratching him in round 2.
