Richard Rider Nova Gets New Hero Clix Figure
While Marvel Comics continues to bury Richard Rider, we see the merchandising side of things continues to see the benefit of Nova as a new Hero Clix action figure will be coming out.
Check out the image below of Nova from the upcoming Hero Clix Avengers Assemble set.
The real Nova is also a part of the recently announced Marvel Super Hero Mashers action figure set, and fans voted Richard Rider into the Marvel Heroes game ahead of his lower-selling parody. Nova also sold better than any of the Guardians of the Galaxy Infinite movie figures, and he wasn't even in the film.
Nova once again brings one of our more popular traits back to the forefront, Share Through the Worldmind. This trait allows for characters friendly to Nova with the Nova Corps keyword the use of Empower; however, this use of Empower can only affect other friendly characters with the Nova Corps keyword. With so many characters now possessing that keyword stretching back to the Marvel HeroClix Galactic Guardians set, you’ll be able to construct an incredibly synchronous Nova Corps squad to take advantage of the traits shared by members of the Corps! And don’t forget the Nova Helmet relic, which grants those holding the relic the Flight ability, Charge, and the Nova Corps keyword!
