I suppose the new Nova has a Tumblr or some dumb thing...

A fun bit, from Marvel Two-in-One Annual #3, "When Strike the Monitors!" Written by Marv Wolfman, pencils by Sal Buscema, inks by Frank Giacoia and Dave Hunt. Of course Nova keeps his press clippings on him...

When the giant alien Monitors attack the earth, Nova goes for help, but Ben Grimm is the only backup available. As usual in this book, yeah.

Nova gets teleported into deep space in one point--"more than a hundred million light years from our earth"--and has to outrace an exploding star to escape. The how of it doesn't make a lot of sense, but this might be the first time Nova is shown to maybe be more than a bullet-headed "human rocket."

We may see more Nova nonsense next week. I had thought I had set up a tag for nine-panel grid pages, as run into the ground popularized by Keith Giffen...may have to look into that.
