This Nova Corps helmet was designed to be used by members of the elite Supernovas. It was passed down to Sam Alexander from his father, Jesse Alexander. It has been used by other members, Mister Z'zz, Phlish, who seemed to have bonded with helmet rather than worn it, and the ex-Nova, Titus.
The helmet was taken by Nova Corps Commander Scott Adsit when the Champions returned Warbringer to custody. It was mysteriously stolen by a member of the Thieves Guild of New York and seen temporarily in the possession of Spider-Man.
Alternate Reality Versions

On Earth-12041, the Supernova Helmet is a level for the gold Centurion Nova helmets that can only be achieved after unlocking their full potential, these also appear to be the only type of helmets that have access to the Nova Force. Sam Alexander of this universe found this out after battling Titus.
