As I mentioned, I don't entirely think its that bad an idea(a funny & outdated idea, but not entirely out of the cosmic realm ...I would have been okay and along for the ride if Richard Rider himself was involved in the story(being a corpse doesn't count)with the family, etc. Cosmo's intro was welcome and DnA made it credible. We haven't seen how the family is deputized and acquire their Nova Corps powers yet but if even the family dog gets powers, well, to quote Weaver: "What's a superhero family without a superhero pet?"
Had to LOL there for a few minutes at how corny and infantile that really sounds when I first read about it. Makes for great cartoons for the kiddies. I can't really hate on the artists like Weaver, or McGuiness, etc. though. They're just following their Marvel Mandate Marching Orders from Marvel Corporate, Disney, the bean counters and accountants.
I've aways loved Weaver's technical illustrations and superb draftsmanship and I study his storytelling panels. I suck at storytelling but am okay with pin-up style stuff. I would have loved to have seen him on a regular Nova Prime/Richard Rider series.
Too bad Marvel isn't invested in focusing on making Richard Rider a standout Marvel A-lister character the way DnA were passionate about and working so hard to achieve.
