I had felt that the group left behind after Thanos Imperative was ripe for story. Having them go Tech-based while searching for Rider/the Nova force could lead to amazing character developement. Philo playing right into this idea with his having spent time outside the 616 and learning to adapt, now teaching the others to do the same. One or two of the others step forward as team leaders. Though Robbie Rider was the shakey character for me, mostly coming down to keeping the character from becoming nothing more than a smart version of his brother.
Now, if only this did happen...
: Well again as a different angle -and because
: I'm being a bit of a nostalgia buff at the
: moment - myself and Rob Shadla are doing a
: "lost Classic Nova" story - using
: gaps between the first landmark issues of
: Vol.1- following up some the lost plot
: threads from Marv's run. I think its still
: important to keep Nova's roots alive as much
: as wanting to have Rich as we knew him from
: his baptism of fire during Annihilation.
: Besides - he's still kicking in Nova619
: -done by fans for fans because in the end
: any Nova comic - fan or Marvel - only works
: if the creative team actually care a das't
: about the character and his legacy unlike
: the present creative team on NINO. 17's
: cover is the worse atrocity ever!

: Rich is returned whole and powerful as Nova
: Prime. He recovers the Orienta Shard,
: re-installs the Worldmind, and resurrects
: Xandar and the Xandarians via cloning (just
: like after Nebula destroyed Xandar). Then,
: he does what any responsible Nova Prime
: should do (ie NOT run back to Earth to catch
: bank robbers) - and he rebuilds the Corps as
: the backbone of Xandar's military. The
: Xandarians terraform a planet and give
: themselves an alternative to the apparently
: too vulnerable (too vulnerable to writers
: who can't resist destroying this structure
: to make a cheap dramatic point or to leave
: Rich once again the Lone Ranger Nova)
: orbiting domed cities. Turn the series into
: what most fans who grew up with Star Wars
: really want - a military SF oriented comic
: book. Rich can then have solo adventures,
: have ensemble adventures with other Corps
: members, visit Earth occasionally, etc.
: Drop the whole derivative para-military
: "Space Cop" BS and
: "Super-hero" BS; and instead go
: with straight up super-powered military
: action adventure. An article came out
: yesterday about our current military
: building "Iron Man" type powered
: armor for special forces. The Nova Corps
: are basically super-powered soldiers. It
: just makes sense to explore that angle. Of
: course, Marvel lacks any real vision. It's
: just like Kirkman said - they just keep
: re-packaging the same characters and same
: stories created between WWII and the 1960's.

: Id take a group of post Thanos imperitive
: corps members made up of the remnants of
: what was left. They would still maintain a
: base on xan philos ship..theyd be using all
: weapons and tech as the nova force is gone.
: The plot would be centered on a search for a
: nu xandar and to reform ( reboot) the nova
: force. In this search we would get for once
: a complete history of the nova corps and
: there roll in the universe.
: The book would also focus heavily on the s
: search for Richard Rider. The book would
: have a very Alien Legion feel ( or crossgens
: original sigil series)..akin also to the
: gritty feeling of giffen's original vision.
: I would bring back Rider to lead the group
: by issue 10..BUT he would be sans powers.
: The initial cast would be
: Robbie Rider and the Nova centurians
: featured in TI.
: Air walker
: Vance astro
: Collectively who call themselves the
: "champions of Xandar."
: Villians id use
: Nebula and Zorr..id return nebula to her
: villianous ways. Zorr would return as a near
: mindless destroyer in her service sim to
: starlin IG era drax.
: The Promeial Gods Aegis and Tenebrous.
: Dominus the future herald of galactus from
: tom defalcos mc2
: The strontian Xenith
: Paibok and terrax
: The badoon would be a huge player in the
: book.id create some memorable badoon
