--Samuel Alexander (Earth-616)
Quote1.png No, let me ask you a question. Let me make sure I get this. Every day, kids are out there dying. Dying because they can't get enough to eat, dying as soldiers in wars we didn't start, dying from guns. Dying from drugs in our communities, from poisons that corporations sell us, from stress and depression. But you have a problem with us standing up for ourselves? Standing up for each other? You have a problem with us fighting back. And if Ms. Marvel were here, she would never buy this -- this fake concern thing you're trying to pull off. Quote2.png
--Samuel Alexander (Earth-616)
Quote1.png You... you were special anyway, you know? Riri Williams, girl genius, M.I.T. kid scientist. You don't need us. You don't need to be a Champion. But some of us do. I don't know who I am if I'm not Nova. If I'm not a Champion. If that's not you, be honest about it, so we can all move on. Quote2.png
--Samuel Alexander (Earth-616)
Quote1.png You know what's special about us? This thing we do? All of us inherited it from people who came before us. Without Iron Man, Captain Marvel, Spider-Man, and the Nova Corps, we wouldn't be here. So some people think we're the junior varsity, baby dress-up versions of the real heroes. But I like it. I like knowing that all of this is bigger than one person. Quote2.png
--Samuel Alexander (Earth-616)
Quote1.png A celebrity? I can do that. I can get you Kamala Khan Quote2.png

Listen, Sam. I can see you're upset to learn you helped a true villain, but I have no more time to spend on Earth. I came to see your role in this misadventure was, now I must find Skaarn, and save my people before any further harm comes to them.

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.
