[[wysiwyg_imageupload:733:]]We all know that the Marvel Comics cosmic super hero, Nova, has been getting a heck of a lot of face time as of late.

Nova is featured in not only Marvel Comics' upcoming mega event, Avengers Vs. X-Men, but video games as well, such as Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3.

Speaking of the latter, a new blog post over at Capcom features a new DLC costume for Nova in the game, and with that, Capcom teases the costume is not based on the new design from the comics (Point One), but something else.

I’ve seen it stated that this new look for Nova is based on his new look in the comics (specifically, MARVEL POINT ONE). Close! But wrong. The truth is, I’m still not allowed to tell you what this Nova is from. You’ll find out soon, I’m told, but I’m sworn to secrecy until then. So--any guesses?...

Something else?!

The new costume could be for Season Two of Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Hero on Disney XD. We've already seen images of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Ronan and the Kree, so having Nova pop up would fit in.

A second possibility could be the Ultimate Spider-Man animated show as we do know Nova is featured, and we've already seen a pic.

Third, and more of a stretch, this could be Nova from the upcoming The Avengers movie, which does have a cosmic flare. In addition, a Guardians of the Galaxy movie is in the works, but seems a bit too far off to already have a Nova costume featured in a video game, as Capcom said we'll find out "soon."

Finally, this could actually be a new look for Nova in the comics. You'll notice the Capcom post mentions that it is not "Point One," related, but "close." Perhaps the real Nova, Richard Rider, will return in Avengers Vs. X-Men (or the conclusion?), as the Phoenix Force could arguably bring him back "reborn out of the ashes," so to speak, with the new costume.

Regardless which ever it is, for Nova fans things are going to get interesting in the next few months! So what do we think of the costume?!

Thanks to "Thanos" and for the tip.

The Nova DLC costume for "Ulimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3" is now available as part of the Viewtful Joe/Strange Pack.
