Dear Axel Alonso, How Much Longer Do Nova Fans Have To Wait? Sincerely, Richard Rider



Way back, and I mean way back in December of 2011 when Marvel was hyping their biggest event ever, Avengers Vs. X-Men, the Marvel execs and editors held a video QnA.

One of the questions pertained to the Human Rocket, Nova.

Now, we had just seen a Nova in the November 2011 Point One special that saw a seemingly young Nova Corps member attempt to warn Terrax of the oncoming destructive power of the Phoenix Force.

So a Twitter user asked about Nova’s role in Avengers Vs. X-Men.

Well, Marvel EIC Axel Alonso responded that they have big plans for Nova and that he thinks it’s better if we wait and see.

Alonso goes on to state that Nova fans will be excited.

So what did we get?


Well, we got the Mark Waid Infinite Comic that featured a Nova arriving on Earth only to end up in a coma, which took place in April of this year.

And that’s it.

Exciting? Hardly.

So, Mr. Alonso, what happened to the year of Nova?

Next year?
