With the reveal of Nova as a Secret Avenger, I (for one) am completely thrilled! I like Ed Brubaker's work and think he will treat Rich very well.
But here's another thought....
What if that isn't Richard Rider? What if it is SuperNova (Malik Tarcel/Garthan Saal) posing as Nova for his own agenda? After all, Tarcel had the same uniform.
It would also explain how Nova can be in Secret Avengers while being in The Thanos Imperative at the same time. And the solicit for SA #2 says the team will be betrayed by one of their own.
I can't wait for Secret Avengers!
