NOVA #2-3 (1976)

The early issues of Nova are all done-in-ones.  You couldn’t ask for a better creative team, so they’re fine for what they are.

We learn more about Richard Rider’s family (his brother is a high school genius, like Peter Parker without powers).  Nova starts learning about his new abilities by stopping street crimes and a bank robbery.  And we meet Powerhouse, another Xandarian aliean, as well as a generic dude-with-wings named Condor in issue #2 and a dude with a diamond head named Diamondhead in #3.

They will appear multiple times throughout this series.

Creators: Marv Wolfman and John Buscema
Grade: C+
