[insert "I hate Sam Alexander bring back Rich Rider" comment]

Does anyone really know what happened to Richard Rider?

I am digging this Original sin series. I am just confused where it takes place. The banner in 2 is not the Banner in Hulk 1-3

I believe we will find out what happened with the Cancerverse and Rider in Guardians of the Galaxy in a few months (comics, not the movie).

I also enjoy Sam. I just don't tell anyone because then everyone will just yell at me.

It's not that I love Rider, but the fact they got rid of DnA and proceeded to avoid closure on the subject of The Thanos Imperative until now (too late) and bring back Thanos & GOTG in an unbelievably unimpressive, joyless manner.

I dont HATE Sam... I just dont care if he died tomorrow. He's not a bad character but he's not a good one either. At least, in the comics. In the animated USM, he's the worst thing I've ever seen.

At least the art's been good and consistent. Hard to say that about most of Marvel's titles these days... but as usual, thats just my very unimportant opinion like everyone elses :)

I too like Sam.
Can't wait for closure with Rider and Quill.

I love the Black Nova uniform. That helmet is [frick]ing cool as sin.
Shadowmaster35 - 5/24/2014, 11:40 PM
@InfiniteMonkey They're gonna tell us in August.

I miss Rider...but until he comes back we're stuck with Sam so better make the best of it. It could be worse. He could be Ock in Parker's body.

This new Nova is annoying

richard rider returns with thanos in guardians of the galaxy original sin tie in & he looks pretty pissed on the cover.

To those idiots who don't like Sam Alexander; then you tools should know that the character was named in honor of Loeb's son, Sam Loeb, who died in 2006 due to complications from cancer. I kinda like Sam though as part of his inner turmoil as a kid is close to realistic in terms of trying to find his self-identity while finding a balance as an unsanctioned Nova. It reminds me a little of Peter Parker's early days as Spider-Man when he was still learning the ropes.
RetroFit - 5/26/2014, 12:32 AM
That art is terrible. I also can't stand the character of Sam Alexander. My heart goes out to Loeb, but Rich Rider is the ONLY Nova for me. I'm sick of this skinny little kid look with this and how they've done Nova and Iron Fist in that horrible new Spider-Man comic.

You know, I was really hedging on my opinion of Sam before but if I'm an idiot for disliking him, well that really sways me over ;D
