After the heavy stuff over the last story arc it’s nice to get back to the dumb jokes!

It’s also great that the one true version of Nova (Richard Rider) has finally been released in Marvel Heroes. We’ve only been waiting for a year and a half for him!

I’ve seen lots of Richard Rider Nova’s rocketing about, but I don’t recall spotting a single Kid Nova. I wonder if this means moreĀ about the popularity of Sam Alexander, or the age of the Marvel Heroes players?

Of course for me the real difference between Sam and Rich is in the helmet. Real Nova helmets become amazingly flexible when you take them off and you can fold them up and put them in your pocket. Sam’s helmet seems more like a motorbike helmet. It’s obviously inferior tech and far less useful in an emergency.
