Howdy, True Believers!
We continue our coverage of Marvel NOW 2015 with a young hero that made his debut a few years ago, but will definitely play a more prominent role in events to come and as a full-fledged Avenger starting this Fall.
I was never a huge Nova fan (nothing against Richard Rider, I simply just didn’t read his series), so when it was announced that a new teenage Nova would appear in Avengers vs X-Men, my interest was piqued. His debut and origin were a bit muddled, with him being introduced in AvX before anyone even knew who he was (not cool, Marvel), but young Sam Alexander soon became a fan favorite.
Teenage superhero dramas are some of my favorite comics to read. Adding super powers and the responsibilities of being a super hero to the already angst-ridden life of a teenager is just so appealing to me. Also, young and undeveloped characters present a blank slate that begs for writers to think creatively and I think getting to watch a heroes’ story unfurl from the beginning is the best.
Without further ado, here is Sam Alexander, fresh to your table and into your hearts!
Enjoy and excelsior!
