On Earth-97751, when Rhomann Dey would cast out his Nova powers, they would be endowed to a criminal who formed an alliance with Doctor Doom, the Red Skull and the Sphinx to kill every superhero on Earth. Using Computer Prime, which monitored the heroes, the group knew when to strike, successfully succeeding in killing all the superheroes on Earth, with the Fantastic Four being the last heroes to be killed.

Nova declared himself the leader of the group, making a toast to himself, which was met with an awkward silence. Later, Nova was attacked by Doom in his room, and they fought against each other with Doom promising to he would let Nova live if he would swear allegiance to him. Nova talked about how killing all of the superheroes was all his idea, and thus that he should be the leader. Suddenly, Doom grabbed his head and screamed before slumping over and dying from an attack from behind.

The Red Skull entered, saying that he was going to rule the world. Nova and the Skull argued until the Sphinx blasted Nova down and then turned the Red Skull to dust. Nova made a vain attempt to fight back, but the Sphinx easily overpowered him and then did to him what he had done to the Skull.


Seemingly those of Richard Rider (Earth-616)#Powers when he first got his powers.
