The Nova Force is a source of energy first harnessed by a race of humanoid extraterrestrials known as the Xandarians. This energy is monitored by the Xandarian Worldmind. Similar to the Power Cosmic, it is a near-limitless energy source and has many ill-defined capabilities, though its primary power appears to be the ability to manipulate gravity fields.

Since the events of the Cancerverse invasion, the Nova Force was trapped in the Cancerverse, in the possession of Richard Rider, until he escaped the Cancerverse with the assistance of Sam Alexander.[1]

Members of the Nova Corps are invested with a small portion of the Nova Force, which is the source of their abilities. The basic abilities of a Nova Corpsman include gravimetric flight, reduced need for oxygen, reduced need for food/water, gravimetric shield generation, and various types of energy beam projection.

It's been implied that different ranks of Nova Corps officers control different amounts of the Nova Force, with the current Nova Prime controlling the largest amount and leading the Corps.


There is a slight inconsistency in the Nova Force's color, as it is depicted as blue or gold.
