[[wysiwyg_imageupload:1038:]]About 7-8 years ago artist Chris Batista and DnA pitched a Nova - Richard Rider - story to Marvel.
Batista even created the following concept art images.
Here's what Chris had to say on his Facebook:
”¢ From a Nova pitch I did with DnA..........
”¢ Definetly Richard Rider.....we had a badass Sci Fi epic, intergalactic war story mapped out.
”¢ It was a hard edge war story with a redefined Nova Corp. Rich would be a soldier and less of a superhero.
So what ended up happening?
”¢ I got signed to DC at the time and had to leave it behind. I read every issue jealously.
Regarding the Nova Corps, as seen below:
”¢ [I] wanted to make them less bland.....too bad we did'nt get to do it.
And Marvel passed on this idea?
”¢ they did....it resurfaced in a different form with DnA. Unfortunately they killed the Corps before they could get things going.
