First appearance



The Nova Corps are the military wing of the Xandarian Star Empire. They recently ended a war with the Kree Empire with the signing of a peace treaty. However, not all factions of the Kree agreed to the treaty, as the Public Accuser Ronan continued his war against Xandar. Empowered by an Infinity Stone, Ronan attacked Xandar, but was stopped by the Guardians of the Galaxy, with help from the Nova Corps and the Ravagers. The Guardians then entrusted Ronan's Infinity Stone to the Nova Corps, believing they were one of the few organizations that could be trusted not to use it.[1]

Xandar came under attack once again when a mysterious growth of living matter ballooned in the midst of a Xandarian city. At least one Nova Corps Star Blaster moved into range to confront this colossal formation, but could do nothing to prevent it from spreading. After two surges in size the growth spread no further, the Nova Corps unaware that Xandar had again just been saved by the Guardians of the Galaxy.[2]


Transportation: *Star Blaster fighter
