Struck by a ray of energy sent by a dying alien, ordinary high-school student Richard Rider has inherited the mantle of an intergalactic Nova Centurion - and all the headaches that come with it! And even the powers of a human rocket can't help Richard outrun a rogues' gallery that includes Zorr, Condor, Powerhouse, Diamondhead, the Corrupter, Megaman - and the dreaded Sphinx, who wants to claim a secret the newly minted Nova doesn't even know he's carrying! Can Richard balance schoolwork, a social life and a near-constant string of arch-villains? And if not, which will he lose first - his dreams or his life?

Nova's sensational '70s series comes to a close, but that's not the end of his story! Nova faces the Corruptor, Diamondhead and Dr. Sun before blasting into space to tackle the Sphinx! But when the shape-shifting Skrulls attack, old enemies must ally to survive - and when Xandar's Queen Adora begs the Fantastic Four for help, the stage is set for a cosmic battle across time and space! The Sphinx is ready to conquer the world, and Mr. Fantastic knows of only one opponent who can stop him: Galactus! But with the FF rapidly aging thanks to a Skrull weapon, do the heroes have enough time left to find him? And will Nova and the Champions of Xandar be able to save their adoptive planet from the Skrull armada?
