Of course Hal eventually returend to the spotlight, after a stint of being a villain, and both chracters have been key to DC more "superior" cosmic side while Marvel's has sadly fallen with the exception of Guardians 3000. As seen with those signing the Ipetiton at NPP, its clear fans can support the idea of having 2 or more Nova titles - just as Green Lantern Coprs have had over the years; Marvel however can't seem to grasp the logic; at the moment churning out one title for every Guardian of the Galaxy member which is serious overkill!
I think Dustin Weaver's take on the Nova mythos will be a bit better; its got the post apocalyptic style and settign I like so i'm looking forward to seeing as its only one of 3 titles - plus the main series of Secret Wars I've added to my present diminishing Marvel pull list.
For now, Rich himself remains in the realms of limbo in the MU, what happens after SW could unfortunately seal his fate for good but hey there's always some clever bloke that can figure means to bring him back if Marvel decided to give him another go. Meanwhile fans will keep him active in fan fics and art - so look out for a new run of Nova619 soon!
: I have not been enjoying Nova/Sam, at all. I
: think I liked more of the stuff with Carrie,
: than the actual action/Nova stuff. It is
: just a bit too childish for me. I am hoping
: things "grow up" because, at this
: point, I will not be purchasing the Sam
: title after Secret Wars ends, if the Sam
: title returns. I have not liked the art or
: the story, but I have kept reading. But I am
: at the end of my rope. It is not fun for me,
: especially after the great stuff we old
: schoolers had with volume four. That was
: great writing, growth, character
: development, and more up my alley.
: I have no disdain for anyone who still reads
: Sam. I would be a hypocrite if I did,
: because I have bought each one. I am,
: however, a bit sad that Nova has abandoned a
: great character and made the title (and many
: other Marvel titles) way too simple and
: I will read the post-apocalyptic Nova title.
: The art looks great, and the story may be
: more up my alley. But after that, I hope
: things change for the better.
: The funny thing is, Marvel seems very
: committed to the Nova idea. They are trying
: hard to keep it going. But they are not
: putting out a great product, yet.
