First off, I'll preface this by saying that if you're not reading Annihilation, something is wrong with you. It has been unbelievably kick ass, so much so that I think that they could probably spin several books out of it instead of just this new Nova series (a Ronan/Super Skrull mini would be godly). For you heathens that haven't read it, just know that Nova is extremely powerful now because he's the last Nova Corps Centurion, and he's been the leader of the forces opposed to the Annihilation Wave. He's been "forged in fire", so to speak, so this isn't going to be the same Nova that you've known before.
Also, he totally nailed Gamorra.
With that said, Nova gets a new book after the end of Annihilation. He's more powerful than ever and now he's also the last peacekeeper in a galaxy that's in disarray after a brutal war. With the power vacuum encouraging all sorts of bad guys to step in, Nova's got his work cut out for him trying to deal with them all. Oh, and there's the little detail of the Xandarian Worldmind, which now resides in his head, constantly pressuring him to re-establish the Nova Corps. And, of course, he has a little something to say about the whole CW thing, especially where it concerns the New Warriors.
I can't stress enough how much I'm looking forward to this series. Annihilation has singlehandedly gotten me back interested in the cosmic side of the Marvel Universe. If Nova is only half as badass as the event was, it's going to be awesome.Wikipedia article on Annihilation for you heathens that haven't read it.Newsarama's interview with the writers.
Ooh look! Pictures! (shamelessly stoled from Newsarama)
When he dies, I hope they write "Worst Affirmative Action Hire, EVER" on his grave. His corpse should be trolled.
