Nova Synergy Guide

Nova is a Cosmic class champion in the Contest of Champions who forms a synergy with 9 other characters, available as a 3-Star, 4-Star and 5-Star champion.

All was normal for New York high-school student, Richard Rider, until he came into contact with the Nova Corps, a peace-keeping force based on the planet Xandar. After the planet was invaded and destroyed by a space pirate known as Zorr, the last surviving member of Xandar's elite Nova Corps, Rhomann Dey, selected Richard Rider to replace him. Rider is given a uniform and powers of a Nova Centurion but little instruction on how to use them. Calling himself Nova, Rider becomes a Super Hero, teaming with other heroes such as Spider-Man and Thor to use his powers for the good of Earth and the universe while serving as its protector.
