You watch yourself. He's bad news. Six months' time, I don't want to have to come after you because he's turned you into "Evil Nova".

"Anti-Nova", surely?

I can't keep up with school, my friends hate me, and the other Avengers... I get the sense that they don't want me around. I mean, really, there are more than enough superheroes in the world. I've been thinking lately that I need to start focusing on what's really important, You know? Figure out what I really need to do.

Sorry?
Conversation Tail.png
Nova Vol 4 36 Textless.jpg
Richard Rider
Look at me. I'm currently trapped inside a pocket dimension after sacrificing myself to entrap an intergalactic warlord. So now I'm stuck here, trapped inside an alien supercomputer for the rest of my life. I'll never see my home, my friends or my family ever again. And I would do it all again because of one simple reason: what would have happened if I didn't. Peace and order aren't the natural state of things. They had to be invented and they have to be constantly defended. That's why the Nova Corps was created. That's the legacy that you carry on. Yeah, I know, down on Earth, you've got the X-Men, the Avengers, Spider-Man, everyone. I can seem like things are taken care of. But relative stability... It's a house of cards, Sam. And there are people and things trying to blow it all down every single second. We need all the heroes we can get. I'm sorry Sam, but you have the power to help and save people. You're not allowed to give up.
