Moon Knight Writer Sabir Pirzada Spearhead’s Marvel Nova Project For MCU!

The question now is “how Marvel’s Nova could reshape the MCU!!!” has received word via Den of Geeks that Nova is finally heading to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The site also claims that Nova joining the MCU can be the game changer the the Cinematic Universe needs to propel Marvel forward.

Den of Geeks reports:

The man called Nova is finally headed to the MCU. Deadline has announced that Moon Knight writer Sabir Pirzada will be shepherding the character into the MCU. At this point, we don’t know if Nova will be a series or a movie, but excitement is already building.

Moviegoers have already received a glimpse of Nova in Guardians of the Galaxy, in which the Nova Corps played an important role. For comic book fans, the Nova Corps looks quite different. As in the movies, the Nova Corps is an intergalactic peace-keeping group, with members from all over the galaxy. But instead of flying around in cool star-shaped spaceships, the Nova Corps gain their power from their helmets and Centurion suits. Once a new member joins the Corps, their helmet grants them super-speed, flight, energy projection, and damage resistance.

More importantly, a Nova series offers a lot of potential for the MCU, as the character has gone through a few important phases. The first phase began with the character’s debut appearance in 1976’s Nova #1. Written by Marv Wolfman and penciled by John Romita Jr., Nova #1 featured ordinary teenager Richard Rider gaining his powers from Rhomann Dey, who came to Earth while hunting Zorr the Conquerer. Mortally wounded but desperate to stop Zorr from destroying Earth, as he destroyed the Nova homeworld Xandar, Dey transfers his powers to Rider. After a series of mistakes, including a stay in the hospital after the new powers overwhelm his body, Rider manages to find Zorr and bring him to Dey’s ship. Dey sacrifices himself to destroy Zorr, but not before passing his Centurion suit onto Rider.

Who is Richard Rider/Nova?

Nova debuted in The Man Called Nova #1 (Sept 1976), written by Wolfman and drawn by John Buscema.

Nova (Richard Rider) is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character appeared historically as the star of his own series, and at other times, as a supporting character in team books such as The New Warriors. He is a member of the intergalactic police force known as the Nova Corps, for which he gained superhuman abilities including enhanced strength, flight and resistance to injury.
