As the MCU phase 4 has already started. A number of new characters are coming to live-acton from the comic books. Characters like Moon Knight who were only known to comic readers are now becoming mainstream. And this is before the multiverse concept has fully been embraced. There are certain long-anticipated superheroes that fans waited to see in MCU. One of them is Nova or Richard Rider. Aso, there is a possibility that his arrival in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has a connection to the actions of Thanos in Infinity War.
Nova Corps has already been a part of the Guardians of the Galaxy. But they are nothing more than space police officers. So it was unlikely to introduce a character like Nova. And Xander was a prime target of Thanos because it was home to power stone.
Nova will be introduced by MCU
According to Thor, the Nova Corps has been wiped out. So, the peacekeeping force needs to rebuild. But they need to come back stronger than before, as they need to prepare themselves better for threats like Thanos. This would mean that they could introduce supersoldiers like Nova Centurions as a part of their team. In the comics, these characters are shown as super-strong characters with abilities like flight, and they can stand fire energy blasts and stay alive in deep space.
Now that Earth has superheroes who can beat Thanos and even stop a Celestial from being born, the Corpsman could come looking for a member. This would be similar to Richard Rider’s origin in the comics. But with a few changes to fit into MCU’s ongoing story. With a trainer like Rhomann Dey and working for the Corps would make Nova, on Xander, synonymous with Captain America.
The Alien Supersoldier will make the Corps stronger
The super-soldier who has risen to be the best among all beings is the best way to bring back the Nova corps and stronger than before. He is the best fit at MCU right now. It would not just take the narrative weight off of The Guardians of the Galaxy but also take the audience to see the Marvel cosmic universe in a new light. And it would bring Nova Corps into a more mainstream plot. Fans would gt to know a lot more about them.
To top it all, Nova would be the new MCU hero who the fans can watch fight deadlier threats of the universe. He is one of the most popular and loved comic characters of Marvel. It is about time he gets to shine in MCU. Also, this would set the stage for more movies and series based in space of the Marvel universe.
