I think there is a balance of grabbing new readers and pleasing old readers. A book having an established history is not a bad thing in a new readers eye. All middle age and younger Marvel fans up to this point jumped on in the middle somewhere. There was a certain excitement you got from starting the book in the middle of the action.
I think it's a big crime that they got rid of editor's notes (or at least I rarely see it anymore). That allowed for the sense of a rich long history without leaving the new guy out of the reference or create the need to forced character dialogue to explain references. I feel some of this ignoring of established history is a product of the way the comic book page has evolved unfortunately. At least they standardized a recap page. That was a great idea.
: Been a while since I've posted here last, so
: hello everyone.
: It really does suck that Rich is essentially
: no more. However, the idea of resetting the
: character is growing on me....as long as it
: is done well.
: Eventually, (hopefully) Sam will turn into
: the bada$$ we saw Rich become in
: Annihilation. He is learning and growing as
: an Avenger. I think Marvel likes the
: character, but wanted to go a different
: route. Just giving it a chance bc I love
: Nova... he just needs to be done right.
: It seems as though Marvel likes the
: character and wants it to do well... New
: Series with is dad, IG, Nova on Disney's
: Spiderman, my question is why don't they
: incorporate him more into their extremely
: popular mobile gaming? They have a ton of
: mobile games and he is currently available
: in 1 of them. Not a huge issue, but if they
: really want to put him out there, wouldn't
: you expect him to get some face time?
: --Previous Message--
: Had a chance to flip through it recently.
: Yeah, Ssm Alexander is The Human
: Rocket"...that's Marvel big slap in the
: face of Richard Rider fans. That's how I am
: taking and interpreting this new series. Has
: Marvel ever given Miles Morales the
: "Your Friendly Neighborhood
: Spider-Man", or "The Amazing
: Spider-Man" monikers?
: I was never going to buy or pay money for
: this issue but taking Rider's "Human
: Rocket" title and giving it to Sam like
: its no big deal just gets a very bad vibe
: from me. Sorry, but even if this is Marvel's
: attempt to steer the Sam character in a
: better light with a brand new #1, I and many
: other Classic Nova fans may never truly
: accept the current character that
: conveniently calls himself "Nova".
: Not while Marvel downplays cosmic events
: like Annihilation like it was no big deal,
: and continues belittle many Rider fans in
: subtle and not-so subtle ways.

: I know this is off your topic but it's on
: with Issue 1,
: I really enjoyed reading this issue. It gave
: me the same vibe from when I read the 1st
: issues from Classic Nova Vol 1.
: The way Sam interacted with his class mates
: reminded me of Rich's interactions with
: Bernie and Caps.

: So some of my speculations have been
: - The voice in the last two panels, either
: Worldmind is back or he built another
: computer. Maybe Jesse might be (last)
: Xandarian, possibly from Engineer caste or
: Nova Corps' expectations for its members to
: maintain their equipment.
: - Either Sam's helmet is allowing him to get
: less sleep or he might be part alien with
: "space physiology" (maybe Kaelynn
: is too young to properly show up). Note that
: only Kaelynn and Sam are able to use the
: helmet and possibly Nova force sliver
: (depends how much of ordinary Xandarians are
: exposed to Worldmind's energy) might play a
: Well, I kinda make this thread on whether my
: theories are becoming true.
