9 Heroes Who May Join The Team For Guardians Of The Galaxy 2
NovaThe Nova Corps were already seen in Guardians Of The Galaxy, but when referring to Nova, most fans are referencing Richard Rider - who was an Earthling granted the powers of Nova – including flight and super strength/speed - from a dying Rhomann Dey (John C. Reilly in the movie). After this, he is recruited to lead a massive Xandarian war against the Skrulls. In the recent comics, young high schooler Sam Alexander is the new Nova, and he's inherited the mantle from his estranged dad - a fact he learns from Gamora and Rocket Raccoon. Nova himself has never been an official Guardian of the Galaxy, but if he was added to the team, only the most pedantic fan would find an issue with it.
