With Avengers Vs. X-Men #12 out today we finally get a full look at Kid Nova's brief appearance.

We posted a couple pics yesterday that a user sent in — but he didn't send in everything!

Yes, Kid Nova comes back, fights the Phoenix and gets taken out - again - but the ensuing battle saw the Phoenix reveal some pertinent information!

This Kid Nova has some kind of secret, and the Phoenix tells him that he doesn't even belong here!


Last we saw of the real Nova, Nova Prime Richard Rider, was fighting Thanos in the Cancerverse — seemingly perishing as he and Star-Lord sealed off The Fault with the cosmic cube.

Is this Nova from the Cancerverse? A result of the Cosmic Cube? A story that DnA had to abandon due to Marvel's cancelation of the book (namely Garthan Saal)?!

The upcoming Point One by Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness looks a bit better right now.

Just a tiny bit.

Thanks to the Nova Prime Page FB for the pic.
