And it was rushed. Thanos takes out the Revengers in about two seconds by himself after it's been made clear everyone had been fighting and fighting to a draw for hours. And we didn't get to see that either.
And the art was a real mess. Different inkers and different artists. Other than the pages where McGuiness obviously had time to do them properly (mostly the ones we saw in the preview pages), the art was really rough to look at. And it didn't flow very well in a storytelling way especially at the conclusion of Rich's story.
Two interesting things about Rich's return.
Given that Rich is back in the 616 but in an energy form, it explains how Sam has access to the Nova Force. I used to think the Black Novas had stored a certain amount of it when they were illegally accessing it but now it can be said that it's because the Nova Force is back.
Also, I think we saw Rich in Sam's series in the beginning. I don't mean Jesse though. In Loeb's origin arc, McGuinness made it a point to keep showing a blue comet in the sky. I never thought that was a throwaway point. With the conclusion of GotG #20, I think that comet is Rich in his energy form. Now if that was planned that way or if it's a nice coincidence, I don't know.
The Nova Prime helmet that Adomox has could be Rich's or it could possibly be Malik Tarcel's. I'd guess it's Tarcel's since the last time we saw him, his helmet had been left behind.
