Its been 6 years and Sam has built a fan base of his own. As long as the Richard Rider series has a great writing team, an art team that can match, and a strong support backing from the editors and Marvel, I'd be okay with Sam being part of the new ongoing. Sam would be busier in the teen Champions series but having Rich mentor him is a fair deal.
As for a new Nova Corps, I think it'd be ideal to keep the same team Rich had from before aboard the Resolute Duty.
As for the Namorita or Gamora debate: I'd prefer Marvel keep Rich with Namorita.
Catching up with GOTG would be cool, but definitely would love to see Rich spend more time catching up with family, his best 3 friends from high school, and his team mates from New Warriors, every now and then.
Looking forward to see Rich also interact with the rest of his Marvel U allies, like Spider-Man/Parker, FF, etc.
But have this continue as a space adventure series from where Vol.4 left off.
Nothing has been officially announced to the public yet but yes, this sounds like really promising news for the original Nova's 40th anniversary. Blue Blazes, its about time to get some Nova Force gravimetric pulse action on again.
