- High Evolutionary keep referring Sam Alexander as "Alien Hybrid" in both New Warriors (2014) issue 1 and journals on Marvel website.
- Titus' "these humans" instead of "[jesse's] kind" in Nova issue 4 or 5.
- his previous rank as a Nova Centurion, which meant that he had to attend Nova Academy if it was set before Richard Rider.
- dead tissue regeneration? I kinda see Sam hiding anti-biotic pills in post-Kluh issue, which meant that he may know about his "heritage" at one point.
I don't know but I kinda have a feeling that Marvel should at least have one alien-hybrid that is not an orphan and/or raised by single parent, at least through sexual reproduction. But I kinda feel that it would make Eva look like a xenophile even though it's pretty common in Marvel universe.
: Is there any actual canon to support the idea
: that he might be Xandarian or is this just
: speculation? I assumed all along that he
: was human but did I miss some sort of hint?
: I am not sure why he would stay on Earth
: instead of Xandar (which he could easily
: have taken his family to) unless he, in
: fact, had a sense of "home" about
: I like the idea, though. It would rock
: Sam's world to find out that he was not

: That got me thinking, so if Jesse Alexander
: a Xandarian, what sort of speculation can we
: think of (from his reason to stay on earth,
: origins, to his desertion)? For me,
: - Jesse might come from long line of Nova
: Centurion (come in handy when he passed his
: "nova force sliver" to both Sam
: and Kaelynn who can use his helmet) who
: crash landed on Earth as a teenager but
: decided to stay at his "Mama
: Alexander"'s dismay on his decision.
: And took "Jesse Alexander" (Jesse
: maybe anglicanized version of his old name
: while the surname might be a reference to
: his homeplanet of "Xandar", which
: maybe given by Eva who may have nursed him
: back to health). Not to mention that Sam
: might be one of the few Superheroes with
: pedigree and/or noble blood. Maybe related
: to Gartaan Saal (imagine him getting pissed
: that he had to accept Sam as last of Xandar)
: or Tarnak Valt (maybe a stupid decision to
: not marry a hot royalty instead of
: inseminating a terran woman with "lil'
: Nova"). Highschool dropout maybe his
: cover up or his failure to adapt his new
: life on Earth (maybe he got money from his
: "endeavors" as a black op). Either
: he deserted the Nova Corps or part of a plan
: to get rid of evidences on Black Nova's
: operations under Nova Corps orders but Nova
: Corps aren't that dirty-handed even if they
: wanted to get rid of criminal elements.
: So any addendum? For another question, why
: would he stay on Earth considering that
: pre-Richard Rider Xandar was a utopia other
: than falling in love with Eva if Jesse was a
: P.S.- So any unique traits that
: differentiate Xandarian from a human.
