Marvel is pretty adamant about not bringing Richard Rider back but are listening to fans, and to some degree, disgruntled loyal RR fans like myself: Sam Alexander will be getting a mentor at it will his father Jesse. Jesse will wear his old Xandarian Nova Corps uniform and not the Black Ops Super Duper suit. I asume Jesse is now the new "living legacy" of the old Corps and there is no Nova Prime...very conveniently doing away with RR the sneaky, DIRTY, way.
Duggan and company will eventually find some excuse to do away with a Nova Prime and be more independent of a Worldmind. Anything to remove themselves of RR and instead concentrate on a "Nova brand" without any involvement of RR.
Common sense and logic still dictates that the real Xandarian Worldmind is still operational in order for Sam's mini-Worldmind to syphon its energy from. RR absorbed the full Nova Force along with the Cosmic Cube to create a gateway for Quill and Drax to escape the Cancerverse and that combined energy would not just easily burn itself out. RR is definitely still alive out there, in a sentient cosmic energy form, around his last known coordinates.
Jesse may have been able to resume being a Nova Centurion using the "mini-Worldmind" but the Nova Force must still active in the real Worldmind in order for that to be possible. No, I don't think the real Worldmind downloaded itself to the Black Nova's mini-worldmind...but Duggan or any other writer could easily find that as the perfect way to dust off any more ties with RR. Very dirty and sad of Marvel to do so.
